Remedy for Insects.
The damage annually done by insects,
jays the Philadelphia Record, is so great
that farmers naturally welcome any remedy
that may be suggested as efficacious, and in
order to enlighten them Prof. Riley, Ento
mologist of the Department of Agriculture,
tested nearly all the remedies that had been
recommended by individuals or through the
newspapers. His results show that ice-water
is not reliable as a remedy against the cab
bage worm, while salt and water, and salt
petre and water also failod; One part car
bolic acid to 100 parts of water injured the
leaves and did not kill the worms under the
leaves. Pyrethrum, one part, and flour,
three parts, dusted on the plants, killed
three-fourths of the worms, while Wolf’s
soap, one ounce to a gallon of water, applied
at a temperature of 90* killed one-half.
Kerosene emulsion destroyed 80 per cent, of
all worms exposed to it, but buckwheat
flour, ammonia, powdered alum, copperas
water, earbolized lime, black pepper, tar
water and tomato water were failures. Cop
peras water (one ounce copperas to a quart
of water) had no effect, but when reduced
to half that quantity of water it killed all
the worms. Carbolato of lime drove them
away but did not kill them. With the
striped cucumber beetle Wolf’s soap did no
good, though carbolate of lime in the male
blossoms of squash vines killed the beetles.
Tar water and Wolf’s soap drove the mar
gined blister beetle from beets, but they re
turned. Copperas water and ammortia
water had no effect on them, but 1 part car
bolicaeid in 64 parts water drove them away
permanently. Kerosene emulsion destroyed
the yellow-neoked caterpillars, but potas
sium sulphide, Wolf’s soap, copperas water
and ammonia did not injuro them. Two
applications of a saturated solution of salt
killed the lice on lettuce, and so did Wolf’s
soap. The soap also killed the aphides on
green-house plants but damaged the foliage.
The woolly aphis on apple trees was de
stroyed by kerosene emulsion but uninjured
by tar water and other remedies. The re
sults show that kerosene emulsion is about
the best insecticide, but when used on cab
bage it imparts its odor. The difficulty is
to destroy insects without injuring the
Mr. George E. Walsh, writing to the Her
ald about buckwheat and its Successful pro
duction, says that if it is sown on rich land
it will, of course, yield better than when
sown in new land which has just been
scratched over with the plow or harrow,
and in proportion to the fertility and state
of cultivation of the soil will be the need of
more or less seed per acre. If the soil is
mellow and well worked a peck of seed to
the acre will give a good yield, while on a
piece of rich lowland meadow broken up for
reseeding a bushel of seed will be sufficient
for five acres. There is one advantage in
thin sowing which is not always appreciated.
It greatly encourages the branching of the
plant, and upon these branches the seed is
borne vefly thickly, while the grain is larger
and plumper than when sown thickly. On
new land the grain is sown thicker, owing
to the fact that a great deal of the seed will
fall upon spots where the ground has been
unbroken, or on stumps and roots, so that
about twenty per cent, of the seed put into
the ground will fail to come up. T.hq choice
of the seed also affects the growth of the
plants considerably, although the black and
the gray appeal - to grow almost equally well
on averagejsoils. Upon a thin, gravelly,
slate soil, which is in good condition, the
gray variety yields more and better flour
than the dark, thick-skinned kind. But
these conditions of soil are not always ob
tainable on a farm and, under other cir
cumstances, either variety will yield a good
The question of fertilizers for buckwheat
is one to which little attention has been paid.
Why any fertilizer should be used may seem
strange to those who have been accustomed
to raise the grain on poor land, where it
seemed to flourish under the most unfavora
ble circumstances. On rich, well cultivated
land, tlien.it would seem that manure would
lie sheer waste. This is partly true, but if
the crop is to be raised in the most approved
manner, the same as the other grains, the
application of n little superphosphate of
lime would not bo money lost. Buckwheat
Is a great nitrogen gatherer, and in the hot
season when this crop is grown the produc
tion of nitrates in the soil is going on ac
tively, and the crop is naturally well sup
plied with nitrogen in any soil in which this
fertilizing agent can be developed in an ac
tive condition. The application of piaster
is also beneficial.
Something About Cut Worms.
Wo are so generally asked, says the Ame
rican Agriculturist , about the “cut worm”
that It is evidently the popular idea that
there is but one Insect deserving that name,
while in fact there are half a dozen or more,
all larvae of different species of moths.
Practically they might be regarded ns one,
did not some of them ascend trees, shrubs
and other plnutspn their destructive work,
while most of them confine their operations
to the surface and wor k their mischief by
cutting off young and tender plants even
with the ground. Their work is done at
night, and as daylight approaches they liido
themselves in holes in tho ground. Cabbage,
when first set out, and lettuce and other
plants of tho garden, up to squashes and
other plants of tho farm, are attacked by
them. Growing muskmelous and water
melons for Northern markets is now an im
portant industry in the Southern States,
especially wjtliin easy reach of the shipping
ports, some hundreds of acres being occu
pied by watermelons alone. Tho grower of
melons, as well as of cabbages, etc., finds
that his greatest obstacle to success is in tho
attack of cut worms. Various devices have
been proposed to ward off their attacks, but
among these none appear to be so sensible
or so effective as that devised by Dr. A.
Oemler, author of “Truck Fanning for the
South.” Dr. Oemler kills off the cut worms
before the plants appear. Upon his water
melon fields he sets poison traps at about
fifteen feet apart each way. These “traps
are cabbage or turnip leaves, which have
been moistened on the concave side and then
dusted with a mixture of paris green with
twenty partsof flour. Those leaves are placed
over tho field, poisoned side down, at the dis
tances above stated,before the plants appear.
What follows? The doctor facetiously says:
“Two such applications, particularly in
cloudy weather, at intervals of three or four
days, will suffice to allow the cut worms to
make way with themselves, which they gen
erally do with perfect success."
Fruit Trees and Soil.
In writing about fruit trees Daniel Den
nett says that it is pretty certain that most
u nit trees in the South suffer severely from
poverty of soil, from lack of lime, potash
and humus in the soil, and are choked and
robbed by grass mid weeds. If one could
put around each tree half a peck or a peck of
imie and half a bushel of ashes, and then
Pile up half a cart load of rotten leaves and
i otten woods to be scratched down by chick
ens in search of bugs and worms, the trees
would be far more thrifty and would bear
more and better fruit.
Then, whatever others may think, we
ould prune peach and apple trees closely
immediately after the last fruit is gathered.
*\ e tn<xi this last season and it worked ad
mirably. It may not do well in all orchards
every year, but it certainly did well in our
orchard last year.
It is recommended to tie up a piece of
rosin soap in a rag and place it in the fork
of an apple or peach tree. The rains will
gradually wash the soap down in the fork
where the blight attacks in the apple tree
and it will do good at the roots of any fruit
tree when it gets there.
We believe in plowing an orchard with a
light good turning plow after the fruit is
taken off. If roots are broken or wounded
they will have time to heal and recuperate
before tho blossoming and fruit season.
Plow - in most of tho rotten leaves and rotten
w-ood applied in the winter and add another
hnlf cart load the next winter. The fruits
•will pay for such labor.
Utilizing - Feathers.
'I he Poultry World says that feathers,
properly saved, have a market value and it
pays to save them. But many people, upon
farms and in villages, scarcely deem the
small quantity they have worth the trouble
of saving for market. Feathers, however,
make a valuable fertilizer when properly
treated. Plowed under they may be of
some service mechanically, but of very little
in furnishing plant food for many years.
1 hey are rich in nitrogen, but the nitrogen
is in a form which is unavailable for plant
food. The nitrogen can be freed, however,
in the following simple way: Into a glazed
earthen vessel pour a quart or so of sul
phuric acid and then add the feathers. In
a few days those placed in the acid will be
dissolved and another lot may be added. A
quart of the acid will be sufficient for the
feathers of eight or ten fowls. When the
acjd will no longer dissolve the feathers pour
it upon the compost heap, or mix it with
any absorbent like dry earth, muck or ashes
and you will have a valuable fertilizer,
readily assimilated, in place of the unsightly
feathers blowing here and there.
Florida and California Oranges.
The well-known Entomologist, Prof.
Riley, of the Smithsonian Institute, who
has lately spent some time in California, on
being asked which State produced the best
fruit, Florida or California, said: “Com
parisons are odious. Conditions of climate,
treatment, marketing, etc., could not well
be more markedly different than between
the two sections. The Florida fruit is gene
rally marketed before the fruit of Southern
California is ready. As to quality I have
seen every degree, from the minimum dry,
pithy pulp surrounding closely packed seed,
and itself surrounded by a rhinoceros-thick
rind to the most delicious seedless fruit. As
a whole, the California fruit is thicker
skinned and more acidulous than the Florida
fruit. The former has consequently a bet
ter shipping quality, the latter is the most
delicious. Thajgis at least my opinion; but
you know tastes vary and the average Cali
fornian doubtless finds the Florida fruit in
How to Destroy-a Pest.
Many farmers have a great deal of trou
ble to get rid of lice which afflict their
chickens. The Home and Farm says that
before treating the chickens let the nests
they brood in, the coops and roosts be cleaned
out thoroughly—even the dust removed.
Then whitewash, using a wash strongly re
inforced by ten to twenty per cent, of kero
sene, everything, high and low, and sprin
kle the ground or earth floor, and the fowls’
runways, with a solution of copperas—one
pound to the gallon of water. Procure
three or four ounces of mercurial ointment,
extend it in three times its bulk of lard, and,
with it, annoint lightly the parts where the
insects gather and burrow, and also touch
the mother hen under the wings and on the
breast with the same. But be careful and!
not use too much of the ointment; an ex
cess will kill the chickens. It will be well, •
too, to improve the diet of the chickens by
the addition of fresh meat and onions
chopped up together and fed once or twice
a week. ._
The Dust Bath.
Our domestic fowls, says the Southern
Farmer , go to their dust bath with eager
ness, and it either makes them “feel good,”
or it prevents them feeling bad, for to all
appearance they enjoy it exceedingly. A
louse will stand considerable water without
being suffocated, but very fine, dry dust is
death to vermin, for the reason that it closes
tne small spiracles by which air is admitted
for breathing, and thus they are suffocated.
This is tho means provided by nature by
which the fowls may rid themselves of a
torment. They seem also to take a positive
pleasure while wallowing among clean dirt.

is recommended: After tho peaches are

make a syrup of the sugar; when the syrup
is quite clear just scald tho peaches in it and
then place them carefully into medium sized
glazed stone jars; sprinkle plenty of stick
cirtnamon and a few cloves lietween the fruit.
Let the syrup boil for live minutes longer,
sufficient to give a pleasant sun-acid taste,
let it boil up again and at once porn - over
the poaches. When cold tie up well and
store in a dark, cold place.
To make ice cream take one gallon fresh

Since wool declined there has been a
steady demand for sheep of the mutton
breeds, and many farmers have come to the
conclusion that they can make larger profits
from mutton and lamb than from wool.

Prof. Henry, of lowa, is very positive in
some of his statements respecting the best

dead air space.
A crop of carrots should be grown on all
farms. It is too late in the season now for
such a crop, but a piece of ground should be
plowed and kept clean until next spring in
order to destroy the weeds before the next
season. The great difficulty in growing car
rots is slow germination of the seed, thus
allowing the weeds to get ahead.
Dragging a harrow over the plowed
ground is one of the hardest tasks that
hofses have to do in farm work, and teams
are often imposed upon while doing it. The
walking is hard for Doth driver and horses,
and the former is often tempted to ride
either on the harrow or on one of the horses,
not thinking or caring what the conse
quences really are.
Oxford Down sheep attain to very heavy
weights, the rams at 3 years of age reach
ing as high as 400 pounds and ewes 300.
They are the largest of the mutton breeds,
and yield a fleece of medium wool weighing
20 pounds. These weights are for special
individuals that have iieen on exhibition,
but 300 pounds is not an unusual weight for
rams over 2 years old.
It is not so much the little red mites in

them, as they do not leave the body of tho

ing spirits of the bens and failure to lay,
though well-fed and in apparent health, may
be traced to the large lice on hens.

The manufacture of real Russia iron in
this country is an assured fact, and a plant
will shortly be started in Cleveland, Ohio,

manufacturer has possessed himself of the
secret process in use in Russia for making
this variety of iron, after journeying-to
Siberia to obtain it. Some specimens of the
improved imitation iron have been shown
which apparently possess all the good quali
