This almost universal custom, which subjected the tree, at the very moment when it was to sustain its change of place, to the amputation of one-third, one-half, or even the whole of its top, seems to be founded on a process of false reasoning. ``We cut off the roots,'' say these reasoners, ``and thereby diminish the power of procuring supply for the branches; let us also cut off a similar proportion of the branches which are to be supplied, and the remaining roots will be adequate to support the remainder of the top.'' In this argument, it is assumed that the branches are themselves of no use to the process of vegetation, and can be abridged with as much ease as the commandant of a besieged town, when provisions grow scarce, can rid himself of the superfluous part of his garrison.

Above a radiator is not the right answer.

The Prince called them and Waverley before him. Regardless, in my state wineries can and do self distribute, and I don’t have a problem with that.

I usually cheat and say I was conceived in ’66, when you can find some decent Bordeaux.” When your great-great-great aunt is none other than Carrie Nation—the hatchet carrying, bar-smashing, bible-quoting leader in the temperance movement of late 19th and early 20th centuries, you’d think that maybe you wouldn’t end up with a wine hobby like Stan Methany’s. “Oh yes,” he says, “she probably would not want to be associated with the likes of me.” There’s quite a lot about her nephew that would turn Nation’s black bonnet askew: He started and ran a decade-long, 100-member wine club for which he did all the choosing, about three-quarters of which would show up with top ratings from Robert Parker within six months (“I’m not a Parker fan, but he does like a lot of the same things I do—I just manage to get there first.”).

Two sturdy arms brandishing such a weapon form the usual crest of the family, with the above motto---_Periissem ni per-iissem_---I had died, unless I had gone through with it. Waverley, lays it open to the plans of the more designing and artful; and one of your friends at least---I mean Mac-Ivor of Glennaquoich---ranks high in the latter class, as from your apparent ingenuousness, youth, and unacquaintance with the manners of the Highlands, I should be disposed to place you among the former.
