A NEW DEPARTURE.
In 1872 I suggested the use of paris green to de
stroy this iR'st, and iu 1873, confidently recom
mended it for the purpose in an address which was
very generally copied in southern journals.
Tlie planters in the more southern portions
the cotton belt, who, after the war,
and while struggling against many ud verse influen
ces, had seen their crops ruined year after year, and
??? become well nigh discouraged, hailed this
soldier-bag; the jaws of the lion are fur weak
er than those of mi unt; the tongue of a lizard
.shorter than thut of a hawk-moth. What is the ar
chitecture of tlie beaver by the side of that of tlie
bee? Compare the jumping of a kangaroo with
that of alien; the fecundity of the herewith tout
of the aphis or termite, the queen of which will lay
mi egg a second for twenty-four hours; the climb
ing oi the squirrel with that of a lly; the swiftness
???of the antelope with Unit of a siciudcia, and you
will find that, if the acta be measur'd bv tlie size of
the actors, insects invariably carry off the jailm.
The electricity of the gymnoius or of the torpedo;
the horns of the stag and rhinoceros; the burrow
ing of the mole; the phosphorescence of the jelly
fish; the changing colors of the chameleon, arc all
reproduced and intensified in the ??????reduviusserra-

cricket, the glow-worm or tire-flics, and the tortoise-
beetles. Iu short, there is hardlv a striking peculi
arity among other animals that does not find its
counterpart among insects; while these, again, pre

The popular contempt for insects is only equaled
by thegem-ral lack of Information about them.
Few, even among tlie better educated, have any
very exact idea what constitutes an insect and dis
tinguishes it from the rest of thcnnimal kingdom.
Sidney Smith, that great wit and philanthropist
and one of the founders of the Edinburgh Review,
ill describing the trials and torments incident to
tropical life, talks seriously on page 81, of Ills
'???Wanderings in South America,??? of insects with
eleven legs, of others with nine wings and of cater
pillars with numerous eyes 111 the belly! It would
lie about us sensible for me to talk to you about rats
with eleven legs, tigers, with nine heads or lions
with eyes staring from the tips of their tails; yet
Sidney Smith???s description of tropical insects will
pass even to-ilnv among many otherwise well edu
cated people, while any such description of rats,
tigers anil lions as 1 have supposed wquld lie laugh
ed at by tlie veriest child. No insect has eleven
legs; no insect has nine wings and none hare eyes
in their belly.
Insects have ail important part to play in the
economy of nature. They net as scavengers in re
moving offensive animal and vegetable material
Which would otherwise poison the air we breathe;
??? they fertilize our plants many of whieli could not,
indcid, exist without tlicir insect poiliuizcrs; they

Nay, they are essential to his very existence for if
some of the lower supports in the complicated
structure of the living world which has man for its
apex and outcome, wore to be removed, the whole
structure would topple over or collapse. We also
receive some direct benefits from insects ns the
honey, wax, lac, silk, cochineal, canthar-
Ides, etc., of commerce hear witness; but
the direct benefit which man derives irom insects
is insignificant compared with the immense injury
which lie sustains from species which ravage his
crops, and it is in the economic hearings of ento
mology that the science assumes an importance to
the agriculturist that commands hi- attention, how
ever little he may be interested in . the other bear
ings of the subject.
Whenever we begin to carefully estimate the
losses which, ns a nation, we sustain from insect
ravages, the figures always startle, and you will
doubtless ia' surprised to learn that they have
reached in a single year nearly 8100.000,000.
Now, it is, in my judgment, one of the highest
C rivileges and prerogatives of the entomologist to
e al.lc to point out to the farmer how bis insect
enemies may Ir-m be controlled, i.e., how best to
decrease their Injury and save to the nation ns
much as possible of the vast annual loss it sustains
thereby. 1 say this because there are men who
think that it is beneath them and ignoble to make
practical application of science, and the average en
tomologist deems that he is doing far nobler work
in describing sonic new species, or in tediously
working at some problem of classification, than he,
who. delving for life, secrets or patiently unravel
ing some biological problem, dissevers truths of

METHODS OF COUNTERACTING INJURIOUS INSECTS.
The means within man???s power in combatting his
insect enemies are two-fold???preventive andeura-
tlve. The first is infinitely the most satisfactory and
always requires exact entomological knowledge of
the particular species to be dealt with. The cure
oi the evil is also often impossible without special
entomological knowledge, but gives scope in addi
tion for mechanical and chemical experiment. It
may also bo brought about by the encouragement
of the natural enemies of the insect to bo dealt with.
It often seems as though man were utterly power
less before some particular insect as it sweeps over
his fields with uresistable impulse, carrying de
struction in its wake, and the disposition
in face oi any general calamity of this
kind is too often one of passive acquiescence in
what is considered inevitable. Such visitations are
too often looked upon as dispensations of Provi

A dread to the cotton grower, of the United States
???since the beginning of the century. A native of
Central and South America, its advent in the north
ern iwrtlon of the continent was no doubt coetane-
ous with the introduction and cultivation of cotton.
Appearing m destructive numbers at irregu
lar intervals, it was looked upon as
ah unmitigated evil entirely beyond
man???s control. Owing to causes which
I have not now time to consider, its injuries have
been more persistent and frequent since the late
fratricidal strife than previous to that memorable
epoch in our historv and no year now passes but the'
worm lays heavy toll on the crop in some portions of
the cotton belt. The most careful statistics, come
pleted at mv request by the leading agricultural
statistician in the country, show that during the
period from 1865 to 1879 the average annual loss to
the cotton growers from this cause was fifteen mil
lion dollars, while in some years it reached nearly
double that sum. On . the principle
-of ???a penny saved is a penny earned.?????? this Is
so much stolen from your pockets. Since 1873
notwithstanding increased acreage the - loss has
bceeu less, owing to the more general adoption of
methods for repressing the worm. It at first seems
astonishing that with such large losses to the staple
crop no svstematic attempt should have been made
bv the people of the South to overcome this-the
planter's worst enemy: that no enthusiastic natu
ralist should have arisen among vou either before or

to the paralyzing effect of slavery
remedy with profouud joy, and many were tlie
touching expressions of appreciation and thankful
ness which I received from various quarters. Men
more zealous for their own gain than for the public
welfare patented various combinations of Haris
green and other arsenical poisons, and did a lucra
tive business in selling rights to use their vnriotis
compounds under names that conveyed no- idea of
their nature, T hey all had arsenic iu
some form os base, and feeling that
the i??teiitees were, in great measure,
imposing on the public, I used my pen and influ
ence to stay the impositions. The period between
1875 and 1878 was one of activity in the improve
ment of appliances for using the poisons, but they
ull had for their object the throwing of these last in
liquid or jmwdcr, broadcast over the plants.
Although I had long felt that the subject was one
of the greatest importance, well deservingthe atten
tion of the national government, the opportunity
to begin a thorough investigation of it was first
offered in 1878,when, as entomologist to the Depart
ment of Agriculture, aud with the hearty assistance
of Senator Morgan of Alabama, and other southern
senators aud representatives, I secured a small ap
propriation of 33,000 for the purpose. The investi
gation has not been without obstacles and difficul
ties. During the first two years the prevalence of
yellow fever was an impediment, uudasthe mod

safe to his home in tne north. I mention these
facts because the synopsis of results which I shall
now endeavor to present to you will convey no ade
quate idea of the time and labor involved iu getting
at the truths which, once obtained, appear simple

NATIONAL UISTOUVOF THE COTTON WORM.
Here you have, illustrated a worm which.you
are all more or less familiar with in its general as
pects anil its consequences. It belougs to the same
order(Lepidoptera) as the silkworm. The one indus
triously spins for us that mot lustrous and unc-
nualed fiber that plays such an important part in
tne commerce of the world, aud was for a long time
a fit emblem of royalty: while the other is bent on
destroying that fiber which, though less rich and
costly. Is more important to the multitude. The
one by study, experience and experiment, mail
has succeeded in artificially propagating; the other,
by the same methods, he may succeed In destroy
Oinno vivum ab ovo. All life comes from an egg.
Modem .scieneeconfimis this Liniuenn aphorism
Onrcotton worm invariably hatches from an egg
and the very common belief among planters that it
husa spontaneous origin, orin some way comes from
cotton seed iscbiUlish. The egg is 0.6 mm. wide,
circular, much lluttenciland ribbed. Bright, bluish
green in color, when first laid, it is attached singly
to the underside of the largerand lower leaves and
is easily overlooked. In irom two to four daysafter
being laid???the time varying with the season??? the
young worm hatches. It feeds for a lew days upon
the underside of the leaves, making yellowish and
semi-transparent blotches. These to the well posted
planter betokeu its presence where otherwise it
would remain unnoticed. It sheds its skin five
times anil acquires full growth in from one to three
weeks after hatching, according to the season. It
riddles tlie cotton leaf only in the latter half of its
worm life and eats more during the last two dayi
than during all the rest of its existence. I want
}*ou to bear this fact in mind, as it explains the ap-
parcnlly sudden appearance of the worm so often
remarked upon. When full grown the creature
spins a slight-web. usually in a piece of rolled up
leaf, and becomes a chrysalis which from its
nature must always be formed above
ground and cannot burrow beneath the
sutface of th?? soil. This state lasts on an average
about one week in mid-summer, but two or three
times as long in spring or fall. In due time the

^Experiment shows that in the broadcast
methods of sprinkling there is a limit to the
subdivision ol the liquid beyond which it cannot
practically be carried, both on uccouut of the great
er tendency of the nozzle to clog and of the greater
specific gravity of tlie poison compared to water in
fine spray; so that in attempting to throw fine spray
over ten or twelve rows, the outer rows, receive no

The old fashioned punctured sprinklers, and per

have proved impractical, because of the fine holes
becoming clogged by wet poison and other ma
terials. To prevent this, stirring, shaking and

straight line along the back. It is
nocturnal in habit, zesting during the day and
taking but a short, startled tlight when disturbed.
In the eafly part of the night it is busy feeding and
hovering from plant to plant, in flight contrasting
strongly with itsdarting day flight. In the latter part
of the night aud small hoursof the morning the sex
es pairand the female is engaged in ovfiiositing. Its
food is chiefly the sacchurine exudation from certain
plants on the underside of the midrib oi the leaves
and at the bases of the outer lobes of the in volnore,
though it will feed ou all sorts of other sweets
and is capable of fretting tlie surface
and sucking the juices of fruits.
The time elapsing irom one generation to another
varies according to temperature, and therefore ac
cording to season. There is increasing activity and
acceleration in development from the first appes
ance till July, and thenceforth decreasing activity
and retardation in development till frost. Thus in
midsummer the whole cycle of individual life,
from the hntchiug to procreation, may occupy less
than three weeks: while in spring and late autumn
it may occupy twice that time. Taking the whole
season through, however, the time from the egg of
one generation to that of another will average aboi

WASHING WITHOUT LABOR!
A WONDERFUL INVENTION.
In 1871, Mr. II. R, Robbins, of Baltimore invented
and pau'ntcd the now famous ROBBINS??? FAMILY
WASHER AND BLEACHER.
It was the original, and as now improved, is the
best and only perfect self-operating Washer in the

without hand labor, with but very little soap, with
out chemicals and without any wear and tear or
yellowing of Clothes.
More than fi fty thousand of these Washers are now
in use, giving perfect satisfaction. We have thou
sands o. t< stimonials from all parts of the country,
from Public Institutions. Hotels, Clergymen, Law ???
yers,. Farmers, Editors and every class of people,
and we have the Editorial Commendations of all
principal papers In the land.
In 1878 The Bissell Manufacturing Company pur
chased the patent for the Washer and after two
years careful experimenting succeeded in simplify
ing the Washer, and in adapting it to use in any
style and size of boiler as also in the old fashioned
iron wnsh-|iot so much used In the south (in which
the original Robbins??? Washer would not work) and
obtained a reissue of their patent on the 21st day oi
THE PRINCIPLE OF THE WASHER
, The operation of the Washer consists in rapidly
and continuously forcing the hot soap suds con
tained in the boiler from the bottom to the surface,
through a tub at the rate of ten gallons per minute
and then drawing it down again THROUGH THE
SOILED CLOTHING, while that is expanded by the
boiling heat???causing it to remove every particle of
dirt and leaving the articles after rinsing thorough
ly cleaned and bleached. It is impossible for it to
tear or wear, or in any way to injure the fabric, as
there fs no friction whatever.
HOW DOES THE WASHER WORK?
The Waslisr having been ptaced in the bottom of
the boilor or pot, as soon as the water commences to
boil all that which is beneath it, being surrounded
with heated metal becomes hotter and more expan
sive than that iu the remainder of the boiler, and
thus has a tendency to rise through tlie tubs, while
at the same time all the steam formed beneath the
Washer is FORCED to pass out and through the
tube, and carriies along with it the water In the
washer and tube with grent force, its place being
supplied by tho water outside, which is rapidly
drawn into the washer and in turn heated and ex'
pelted, thus creating a constant aud powerful cur
rent upward through the tube and downward
TH ROUGH THE FABRIC, giving a WATER FORCE
which cannot he obtained in any other way. The
fabric being expanded to the utmost by the boiling
water, the dirt, softened by the action of the soap,
is at once swept away by the force of the flow.
Thus we have, 1st, Thcgreatest possible heat; 2d.
Perfectly chemical action of the soap, and 3d. Force
of water. All of which are necessary to thoroughly
clcanse and purify any fabric.
WHAT IS IT THAT CLEANSES the Clothes In
ordinary modes of washing by rubbing, pounding,
squeezing, drawing between rollers, etc.? It is
the filling of the fabrics with soap suds os hot
ns may ^be (BOILING heat, being unattainable
especially in hand rubbing) and then FORCING IT
OUT again, and repeating the process until tlie
clothes are clean. But all of these processes require
HAND LABOR. You must turn or pound, or
squeeze or rub; there is little choice between them,
while with the ROBBINS??? WASHER THE LABOR
IS DISPENSED WITH, and any other works of the
hire sc may be done while the washing is DOING
THE CAPACITY OF THE WASHER,
There are two sizes, the No. lor family size, which
works in any family boiler or wnsh-not having a
