DEAL WITH CUT-WORM PEST
Test Course ka to Plow In Fall and
Renew War In Spring-Poisoned
Bran May Bo Used.
Tte test course in dealing with cat
worms ls to plow early In the fall and
continue cultivation with a Bprlng
tootbed harrow until freezing time
prevents it and then renewing the
war on them by extra early spring
There is no easy method of dealing
with these pests, but they may be
killed if one ls willing to go after

them with determination. An effec
tive method of combating them is to
use sweet and poisoned bran, says
the Prairie Farmer. The method is
to add one part of Paris green, by
weight, to thirty or forty parts of
bran, stir this together, while yet dry,
and then mixing lt with water that
has been sweetened by the addition of
strong or coarse molasses. The old
er and stronger the molasses, to give
it color, the better it will be.
The bran should be moistened with j
this sweeter cd water until it is made
into a damp mass, just wet enough
to stay in little heaps. A very small
pinch of this placed at the ba6e of
each garden plant to protect it will
be effectual. The cut-worms will eat
it in preference to the plant.
Tonoprotect corn it is advisable to
drop a pinch In the corn row each
step or two across the field, so that
the worm will find this and eat lt and
let the corn remain. It would be bet
ter to put the poison out before the
corn appears above ground and thus
kill the worms early, than to let them
remain untreated until after the corn
is once cut off.
It is much better to put out the
poison bran in the evening while it is
damp, or on a damp day, so that it
will not be dry when these pests
come forth at night to seek their
food.- It will be found by them just
about as readily if it is slightly cov
ered with earth and for this reason,
if it should become necessary to pro
tect domestic fowls from it, one could
cover it with loose earth at the time

PLUM TREES NEED SPRAYING
When San Jose Scale Is to Be Treat
ed Lime-Sulphur Will Be Given
lr. the Spring.
Plum trees need some spraying,
usually on about the same lines as
the work given to the apple orchard.
Spraying should be given annually,
usually two to four timps each year,
and in all cases must be thorough to
be worth while. Careless spraying is
a waste of time and material. When
the San Jose scale is to be treated,
the lime-sulphur spray will be given
early In the spring. A heavy spray
ing of Bordeaux mixture or of plain
blue vitriol solution before the buds
open will aid in checking brown rot
and other diseases. Another spraying
of Bordeaux mixture, with arsenical
poison added, should be given soon
after the blossoms fail. It should be
specially noted in this connection that
Bordeaux mixture should be only half
strength for plum trees. Some varie
ties, especially those of the Japanese
group, have the foliage seriously in
jured by strong Bordeaux. Perhaps
the best formula for this work is as
follows: Fresh unslaked lime, three
pounds; copper sulphate, two pounds;
water, fifty gallons.
The mixture is uen made up in the
usual way, an?' applied with a nozzle

GRAFTING OLD GRAPE VINES
Cleft-Graft a Little Above or at Leve/
of Ground, or Even Below,
Is Best Method.
Tn reply to a query as to whether
an old grape vine, trained as shown
in the iluBtration, can be successfully
grafted, F. E. Gladwin of the Geneva.
N. Y., experiment station, writes in
the Rural New yorker as follows:
"I should say from your diagram
that the vine in question is trained to
the horizontal arm spur system and
that you desire to graft the numerous
spurs along the arms. It ls very
doubtful that you can be- successful,
as there is too much opportunity for
the pans to dry out before a union
takes place. I should much pr??er tc

level of the ground or even below.
