Hedge laying If hedges are not maintained and trimmed regularly, gaps tend to form at the base over many years. In essence, hedgelaying consists of cutting most of the way through the stem of each plant near the base, bending it over and interweaving or pleaching it between wooden stakes. This also encourages new growth from the base of each plant. Originally, the main purpose of hedgelaying was to ensure the hedge remained stock-proof. Some side branches were also removed and used as firewood. The maintenance and laying of hedges to form an impenetrable barrier for farm animals is a skilled art. In Britain there are many local hedgelaying traditions, each with a distinct style. Hedges are still being laid today  not only for aesthetic and functional purposes but also for their ecological role in helping wildlife and protecting against soil erosion. Trimmed hedges at Mission San Juan Capistrano in California An alternative to hedge laying is trimming using a tractor-mounted flail cutter or circular saw, or a hedge trimmer.

The first rumblings of secession were heard in the s, some 20 years after Bradford and Susquehanna counties had broken off, due mainly to the impracticalities, not to mention the social regression, of having to travel to Wilkes-Borough to transact official business. When suggestions started floating about that another northern chunk of Luzerne County wanted to break off, the PTB powers-that-be of Wilkes-Borough became alarmed, so they developed a two-point scheme.
A hedge or hedgerow is a line of closely spaced shrubs and sometimes trees, planted and trained to form a barrier or to mark the boundary of an area, such as between neighbouring used to separate a road from adjoining fields or one field from another, and of sufficient age to incorporate larger trees, are known as hedgerows.

Share The word asceticism comes from the Greek askesis which means practice, bodily exercise, and more especially, atheletic training. The early Christians adopted it to signify the practice of the spiritual things, or spiritual exercises performed for the purpose of acquiring the habits of virtue. At present it is not infrequently employed in an opprobrious sense, to designate the religious practices of oriental fanatics as well as those of the Christian saint, both of whom are by some placed same category.
It is not uncommonly confounded with austerity, even by Catholics, but incorrectly. For although the flesh is continuously lusting against the spirit, and repression and self-denial are necessary to control the animal passions, it would be an error to measure a man’s virtue by the extent and character of his bodily penances. External penances even in the saints, are regarded with suspicion.
