In answer to a correspondent wlio inqAiires as to the best methods of iresoving young appln troes froni rabbits and iniuo in winter, the Rural ÍVííc Yorlcir says : "Almost evory kind oí' animal matter appears to bo ofensivo to rabbits, and tliey ■vrill not touch the bark of a treo that has reccntly been smeared with blood, groasj or offal of animáis. Saveral of our correspondente havo written us thnt they protected their trees by smearing the sterns with blood saved for'ithe purpose ut the time of killing animáis in autuinn. Any old lard or soap fat will probably nnswer the same pnrpose, but if mico :ire abuiKiant then a. littlo poison should bo addud ; but it would bo nccesnary to koep your fowls out of the orchard, i'or thoy would be surt) to piok up any small pieces tliat wero droppcd or found adherinf to tUo trees. Tliis i-abbit and mico questiou is an important ono to thoso wlio undertake to raiso an orebard in a iiew country, and if auy of our readers know of a better preventivo than.thos piven above, we should be pleased to givo it in our col■ujnns."
