SPRAY OUTFIT HELPS
Equipment Necessary Depends
on Work to Be Done.
General Purpose Pump Should Be
Made of Brass to Prevent Corrod

in Bordeaux Mixture.
(By H. G ARMAN.)
The kind of a spraying outfit tb
get depends entirely on the kind of
spraying to be done and the extent of
the work proposed. If one has a few
rose bushes or tomato plants about a
dwelling, or even a few small fruit
trees, he can get along with a small
hand pump known as a bucket pump.
With a little extra hose and a pole, or
a bamboo rod, with which to elevate
the nozzle, lt ls possible to spray trees

an outfit Grape vines can be sprayed
very well with a bucket pump, pro
vided there are not many of them. If
there are many ^ ines to spray a knap

very convenient outfit for spraying
tobacco, potatoes and other low
growing plants, which from the man

For extensive spraying, it is well
to secure a strong pump attached to
a barrel or trink that can be hauled
about in a cart or wagon. Hand
pumps so attached are used for small
orchards and other plants grown in
a moderate way, but power pumps are
necessary for extensive spraying and
for that required by tall trees.
A man engaged in fruit growing or
potato growing, as a business, ought
to have a power sprayer of some sort,
either operated by the wheel of the
vehicle carrying the outfit, as In the
compressed-air sprayers, or by a gas
A general purpose spray pump
should be made of brass so that it
will not be corroded by the copper
sulphate used in bordeaux mixture.
Nozzles, too, should be made of brass,
and ought to be constructed so that
they can be quickly cleaned of solid
particles that may lodge in the outlet
The pump:, will last longer and give
better service if washed out with clear
water whenever done using them.
Hose should be of the best. For
trees it 1B well to have a sufficient
length so that the nozzle can be ele
vated on the end of a pole among the
branches. The precise length will de
pend upon the size of the trees. For
orchard work a length of 10 to 16
feet will serve when the pump is
operated from a wagon bed. For

$150,000 PAID FOR HORSE
Government of Argentina Buys Crag
' anour, Which Was Disqualified In
Recent English Derby.
The sum of $150,000 was paid rt?
cently by the government of Argen
tina for the horse Craganour, which
was first past the winning post in the
recent derby race, but was dis
qualified for bumping. Only on four
occasions has the price paid for
Craganour, which is to be used for
breeding purposes in Argentina, been
exceeded in the amount paid foi a
race horse. These were Ormonde,
which was sold for $156,250 to an
American sportsman; Cy Ilene, which
went to an English sportsman for
$157,500; Diamond Jubilee, sold to an
Argentine breeder for $157,500, and
Flying Fox, which holds the record
for price and was sold to a French
sportsman for $196,875.
Corn, for Silage.
Com for silage should be plowed
only one way. The corn should be
drilled in the row and thinned to one
stalk to the foot A small-sized stalk

silage than the large stalk and ear
that usually results where the corn
ls cultivated for feed.

Giving Hogs a Bath.
Kansas Agricultural College says:
Few things retard the growth of a
hog so much as lice. Years of ex
perience have shown that the best
remedy for destroying the lice and
fleas is dipping in chemical solutions.
Dipping also keeps the skin of the
animal in a healthy condition and
thereby aids growth. Because of
cheapness in first cost and lasting
qualities, most dipping v&ta are now
built of concrete._

TO KILL TENT CATERPILLARS
Single Spray of Arsenate of Lead
When Incests Are Observed
Would Stop Depredations.
If a grower is spraying his fruit
trees faithfully with arsenate of lead
from tent caterpillars, or the tents
may be crushed with the gloved hand,
when they can be reached, at a time
when the caterpillars ure inside; or
burned by a torch on the end of a pole,
twisted out of their place by means of
a wire brush, attached to the end of a
long pole. These remedies are effect
ual only when the caterpillars are in
their tents, early in the morning, or
In stormy wet weather. A single
spraying of arsenate of lead, when
caterpillars are observed, would prob
ably stop 1 eir depredations.
The forest tent caterpillars can be
destroyed when they collect in bunch
es on the trunks of trees. Prune off
and destroy the twigs holding the
Breeding Draft Horse*.
The breeding of heavy draft horses
is one of the most profitable branche?
of live stock farming. Few farmers
realize the importance of size in a
draft horse, when put on the market,
either in public or private sale. A
horse that weighs less than 1,500
pounds is not considered a draft
horse in any of the horne markets of
the country, yet the mares kept on
the ordinary farms are usually light
er than that. This accounts for the
small, scrubby lot of horses that are
constantly being put on the market
at a loss to the breeder.
Care of Swine.
Two things which should be avoid
ed with swine in cold weather are,
first, do not let them sleep in or upon
heating manure, because they become
-warm and then rush into the cold air,
frequently contracting colds, coughs
or severe pulmonary diseases that
are sometimes fatal; second, bed
them' well in dry quarters where
there ia no draft of air blowing across

PESTS OF SHADE TREE]
Proper Protection ls Problem of|
Sudden Losses Are Frequentfyj
Caused by Overwhelming Attacks
of Leaf-Eating Insects-Keep ?
Pests In Subjection.
(By S. A. FORBES.)
The protection of the shade trcosl
and ornamental shrubs of our city
parks against insects has been for
?several years a problem of increas
ing importance. Many of the most de
sirable trees and shrubs are liable to
shew destruction by obscure insect
pests little understood, if at all, by
those Immediately concerned.
Trees which have grown for years
becoming more* attractive, more val
uable and more highly valued year or
year, begin to weaken and decay, andi

A Trap for the Elm Leaf-Beetle, Made
of Strawboard and Smeared Wl*h
the owner does not know why. This
is often due to borers or the scale
insects or beetles, the presence of
which has not been detected or sus
pected, but which injuries might have
been prevented if the facts had been
known in time. More sudden losses
are caused by overwhelming attacks
of leaf-eating insects, which, although
conspicuous, ara not dealt with be
cause proper measures of procedure
are not known. \
But, of late years, a great work has
been accomplished along this line
through proper experiments and ob
servations. Careful examinations are
being made of the affected trees and
shrubs and the life history of the
Insects causing the injuries is being
studied deeply. This is in order that
authorities in control of parks, boule
vards and streets, and owners of
lawns and other private premises may
become posted on the habits and char
acteristics of the pests, and know
how to combat them.
Take, for Instance, the elm tree.
The spraying of large elms is, ot
course, a difficult and expensive oper
ation, and the canker-worms, which
cause great injury to these trees, are
less susceptible to arsenical poisons
than many other insects. A cheap
and efficient method of protecting the
tree is the preparation of adhesive
preparations, for trapping the insects
which creep up or down the trunks
of' the trees.
When the elm caterpillars are full
grown they leave the tree to pupate
in the earth, and the female moth
emerging, being wholly without wings,
can only reach the tree to lay her
eggs by climbing up the trunk If
this is encircled at the proper time by
a sticky band impassable by her or
by young worms just emerging from
the egg, the tree Ie virtually secure
against canker-worm injury.
The sticky substance may be ap
plied directly to the bark as a deter
rent against the attack of borers, or
may be used on bands of paper, tin,
or strawboard. For the elm leaf
beetle a trough shaped band, the in
side of which is smeared with the
Trap for Elm Leaf-Beetle, Made of

ices Filled in to Prevent Larvae
sticky material, entraps great num
bers of the descending larvae. Used
in connection with spraying arsenate
of lead on the leaves, it affords a very
satisfactory means of keeping the
elm pests in subjection.
Use for Cull Potatoes.
WTien potatoes come In, use the
small ones that are of the size ot
marbles for the hens and chicks. Cook
them and throw them into the poultry
yard, and no preparation will be nee?
essary, as the chicks can easily pick
them to pieces. It is economical to
use potatoes in this manner, those that
are usually unsalable can be converted
into eggs and assist in adding to the
profit from the farm.
Cowpeas in Corn.
Every farmer should consider the
sowing of cowpeas in his corn. The
cowpeas, besides enriching the soil
with nitrogen, will furnish good win?
Ur pasturage, and if the corn Is cut
for silage the cowpeas will help bal
ance the ration. About the best way
to sow the cowpeas is to drill them
.in between the rows of the corn al
