The  education of his children necessitates  his living at Arrowhead where a school  ia available, but in spring and summer  he gives a great deal of attention to  his farm, where six acres have been  cleared of timber and Jn'oiighyjiito  cultivation.! Two acres Have "already  been planted under fruit-trees. An  acre is under berries and apples" alone,  and has.pl.inted out plums and cherries. _ Fruit growing is ns yet? an  experiment but there seems no "reason  way it. should --not be a success at the  Bay.  Last season Mr. Shaw raised overan  acie of vegetables, but fruit culture is  what he has mainly in view and lie  pi eposes planting out more, fruit-trees,  lie points out the great market fulfill it iu the north west.'  .I. Olson was one of the first in the  settlement to go in for. planting fruit  nnd his Irce.-i are (bing well. Mr.  Slinw informs us he has never seen  better, fruit than that grown by iWr.  Olson, and bis fruit is pronounced by  experts lo bo decidedly belter, than  Unit grown at the coast.  T.
