from tbo States after an absence
of about six months. Ho has not
como nlono but has brought with
him parasites and other enemies
to tho desttuctivo insects that have
beon brought hero from otbor
countrios. Prof. Koobolo, during
his stay in tho States, visited Cali
fornia, Arizona, Mexico, Texas,
Washington, D. 0., Philadelphia,
Now York. In Washington ho
called on various entomologists
employed by tho Government. In
brief this is what Prof. Koobolo
brought homo with him:
EuomieH of tho horn fly- -bottles
that bury the manure of cat
tle in tho grouud nnd thereby
doatroy the larval of tho fly.
Other insects that prey on the
larvae of tbo horn lly.
Predaceoua beetles that live on
tho cut worms that ore bo destruc
tive to vegetables and plants. Also
parasites for the cut worms.
In this connection it might bo
Btated that ns soou as Prof. Koo
bolo arrived nt tho Govornraont
unrsory, whore ho is now stnyiug,
ho fouud that tho white cabbago
butterfly of Europo bud found its
way to tho Islands from San
Francisco. Somo of tho parasites
woro immediately freed from their
Insects that food on snails. It
is well known that tho Uulccs nre
to bo found in tbe early stages in
tbo shells of snails. Doatroy ing

Prof. Roebolo has also brought
a largo number of plants suitable
for this climate. Among those is
tho Mexican rubbor tree and

Tho settloment of tho dato upon

nmuy exceptions in applying tho
laws of tho United States to tho

tho assumption that thoir bill will
