Professor J. 3L Stedman. entomologist of
U. , station, has Just prepared a statement
for publication in which he takes the stanJ
that this method Is Ineffective In doing
away with the chinch bugs. In making this
statement, however, he points out other
methods, which, by experiment at tho na
tion, have been found to be effective. Pro
fessor Stedman says:
"Chinch bugs always hibernate in the
adult condition during the winter. Late in
the fall, when the proper food plants have
become more or less dried and cooler weath
er Is approaching, the chinch bugs begin to
migrate and scatter In search of suitable
places in which to pass the winter. Tbls
migration usually occurs in Missouri at the
time most people call 'Indian summer.'
"The quarters aought by the bugs are such
places as the edge of timber, osage orange
hedges, wind breaks, places where there Is
plenty of rubbish, as along fences, among
stone piles or wood piles, hay and straw
stacks, and places where there are great
masses of rank growth of grass and weeds.
"Unfortunately for the agriculturist,
at least, the chinch bug has few natural
enemies, especially is this the case with
its Insect enemies. The chinch bug seems

everyone, young or old, and one that is
without an equal as a tonic, an appetite

need suffer from the many complaints
arising from a disordered stomach when

people are using it to-day in preference to

to be largely immune from the attacks of
either Insects that devour them or that
Earasite upon them, and it therefore fcems

in check by other Insects.

"There are certain fungoid and bacterial
diseases that attack chinch bugs under cer
tain conditions, and these diseases do more
good toward keeping the chinch bugs In
check than all the ether natural enemies
of the chinch bug combined. However, we
cannot hope to ever see the day In this
region of the United States whn tha nat

"In the first place, every agriculturist
should take advantage of th fact that
chinch bugs hibernate In the adult condi
tion during the winter under rubblih f
various kinds. If tho farm is kept thor
oughly clean, and no rubbish of any de
rcrlption. or no hedge fences or other place"
where the insects can readily hibernate are
allowed then there will be l.ttlo chance of
the chinch bug hibernating on that farm.

like you In this country. If the slightest
vestige of th catarrh remains over during
the hot weather It will begin to make it

cured this Is the way to do it.
Get a bottle of Peruna and take a table
spoonful between each meal and at bed

thirty days lit down and write a letter to
Dr. ilartman. Columbus, O. Tell him ex
actly vour symptoms? how losg you have
had catarrh: what effect the medicine- has
had on you. He will answer your letter
promptly, telling you what to do further.
He will make no charge. And If you will
continue to write to the doctor vou are
sure to get cured. Some cases take longer
than otherp. Perhaps the average length
of time it takes to cure a genuine case of
catarrh Is three months, borne get cured
much aulcker than this. Stubborn cases
may require longer treatment. Time or
