Cherries without stones have been produced in France, it is said, by the following method :—In the spring, before tbe circulation of the sap, a young seedling cherry tree is split from the upper extremity down to the fork of its roots ; then, by means of a piece of wood in the form of a spatula, the pith is carefully removed from the tree, in such a manner as to avoid any excoriations or other injury; a knife is used only lor commencing the split. Afterwards the two sections are brought together, and tied with woolen, care being taken to close hermetrically with clay the whole length of the cleft. The sap soon re-unites the separated portions of the tree, and, two years afterwards, cherries are produced of the usual appearance, but, instead of stones, there will only be small sort pellicles.
