r Hedge-pruning, like fruit pruning, is some- what of an art, though not such a difficult one as might be supposed from the bad condition of most of our fences. The main point to bear in mind is to attend very carefully to the top. This, with due attention to the sides, which are of less importance, will prevent the bottom from being gappy—a simple remedy for a very com- mon and bad complaint. Needless to say, the drip caused by want of attention to this simple point is largely responsible for the trouble so often met with. Sometimes, though rarely, the- opposite extreme is seen, and over- bushy sides and stunted top testify to want of judgment in regulating top growth. Summer should be carefully avoided for the operation with most hedge plants, but Box is a somewhat curious exception, and August is said to be the best month for this work, and also, strange to say, for moving the roots. — Agricultural Economist and Horticultural Review." The firm of Messrs A A Shorthouse, Ltd., cattld and meat salesmen on commission, of the City Meat Market, Birmingham, who have advertised in this paper for some years, was established by the late Mr A A Shorthouse about the year 1860, and was carried on by him until his death, which occurred in 1909. The business was then formed into a limited company, composed of the members of his family, and Mr 0 J Robbins, who had entered Mr Shorthouse's service in the year 1873. Mr A A Shorthouse was president of the Wholesale Meat Salesmen's Association from its formation until the year 1899, and since then Mr Robert Shorthouse and Mr Robbins have in turn occupied the presidential chair. The firm have continously for over 30 years held the position of salesmen to the Bingley Hall Cattle Show, which is an annual appointment, thereby pro4 claiming the manner in which the business has been conducted. They are salesmen on com- mission for both live and dead stock, poultry, bacon, &o., and handle consignments from all over the United Kingdom, as well as from several countries on the Continent, and their prompt manner of settlement has secured them the confidence of their clients. They also are always willing to advance cash on consignments immediately on arrival, and hope by strict attention to business to merit any further support which may be extended to them. v
