When to Stop Cultivation.
Cultivation of the orchard should
generally bo stopped by tho end of
July. This Is especially the case with
old orchards that are being cultivated
for tho first time. In tho caso of an
orchard that has been cultivated right
along there can bo Httlo or no harm
In cultivating at any tlmo of year. It
will then stop growing In midsummer
and will spend tho rest of Its tlmo
and onergy In hardening up Its wood.
But tho orchnrd that has not been
much cultivated or even that has not
been cultivated In the spring of this
y jar will be injured by giving It extra
attention of this kind in the late
summer .and fall. If, however, the
trees are carrying a heavy crop of
fruit, cultivation may bo continued
later than if tho trees aro bare or
havo little fruit on them. Tho extra
amount of plant food set loose will
then go into tho fruit that is belne
produced nnd tho late development
of buds and of wood will not occur.
In fact, in dry climates and dry sea
sons the lato cultivation may prevent
the fruit-laden trees from becoming
weakened from laclc of moisture. Then
as thoro Is a great deal of loss of
moisture from the uncultivated ground
nnd tho fruit on tho trees is requiring
a great deal for its development, there
Is sometimes Injury to the tree from
the supply of moisture being lessensd
or cut off.

Tobacco for Wooly Aphis.
Tobacco dust can be obtained from
the groat tobacco manufacturing es
tablishments for about one cent pet
pound If purchased in largo quantities.
Somo of our best investigators of in
sect troubles of tho orchurd say that
this dust is a destroyer of wooly aphis
and enn be used to advantago around
ovory fruit treo that Is or has been
affected. Tho usual mode of appli
cation is to dig away tho soil from
around tho trco to a distance of two
foot each way and to a depth of say
four Inches. About five pounds of the
tobacco dust is spread over this place
and tho dirt put back. This is to
provont the dust bolng blown away
by the winds or washed away by the
rains. Tho rain that falls will carry
tho nicotine from tho tobacco to all
parts of tho roots of tho treo affected
by tho aphis and they will bo killed.
It will also prevent tho coming of
other broods of tho aphis. Tho to
bacco Is worth for fertilizer all it
costs, and its Insecticldal valuo Is an
absoluto gain. Tho work of nppllca
tlon may therefore bo set down as
tho only cost of tho protection it a

The New Strawberry Bed.
Tho now strawberry bed can bo so
managed thnt It will require tho least
caro and will produce tho largest pos
sible amount of fruit. Wo think It n
great mistake to allow tho vines to
occupy most of tho ground as they
are allowed to do In too many gar
dens. Wo havo seen such a bed on
tho second season becomo a solid
mass, with tho result that tho berries
aro small and hard to pick. The next
year ovory Inch of space Is covered
with plants aud generally no fruit to
speak of is secured. If the hedce-row
systom is followod tho results will bo
better and tho bed may bo kept for
several years without being renewed.
That method is to allow the plants to
grow say six inches apart and the
rest of tho ground Is kept clcam of
both plants and weeds. The roots of
the plants havo -an abundance of feed
ing ground and gather largo quanti
ties of plant food for tho making of
the crop of berrleis. Tho row of straw
berries will not then be generally
more than one foot across, and the
rows should bo at least three foet
apart measuring from centor to center.
Must Look fttr Prevention as Well as
Cure of Disease
Not only he engineers, but also tho
doctors, will havo much work to do in
connection with tho construction of
tho Panama canal. The health con
ditions In tho vicinity aro very bad;
Jt would be difficult to find worse.
Tho Chagres fever, which Is peculiar
to this region being named, indeed,
after tho river of that name prevails
constantly, and Is a very serious men
ace to tho lives of men from tho
north. I am confident that it can be
stamped out, but this will bo a difficult
task, well worthy of tho efforts of
tho best medical ability in this coun
try. Tho climate Itself is not unfavorable
to health. Tho danger lies in the
swamps on tho coast and In the abso
lute lack of sanitation in the towns.
The swamps will havo to be drained
and a civilized sanitary system put
Into oporatlon. This work must be
under tho direction of a medical man
of firmness, sound ideas and strong
oxecutlvo ability. Though tho man
ual labor on the canal will bo done
by acclimated natives, a large number
of men from the United States will
bo employed as superintendents for
other work requiring skill and edu
cation. Many young American civil and me
chanical engineers are looking to
Panama for opportunities, and there
will be places for a considerable pro
portion of thoso who want them. The
lives of these men are too valuable to
be sacrificed to unhonltliful conditions
that can be remedied. Some of the
first and most Important undertak
ings In tho canal country must be
prosecuted by physicians. Success.

but Lydia E. Pinkbam's Vege

added health and strength. I am so

its use." Mns. Florence Danforth,
