CATERPILLARS OF THE FALL
.Worms Feed Gregariously on Foliage
of Apple, Pear and Quince
Destroy by Burning.
The caterpillars of the fall web
worm construct tents and feed gregari
ously. The tent is large and loosely
Woven, and the caterpillars feed only
on the leaves that are enclosed in the
web. When the supply of leaves with
in is exhausted, the web 5s enlarged
to take in more, and. in this way, the
entire top of a young tree may be
webbed over and defoliated. The fall

ibrood of this caterpillar Is usually
?much more numerous and destructive
?than the spring brood. The cater
pillars attack a great variety of trees
'and shrubs, but are especially fond of
?the leaves of apple, pear and quince.
'"The web wormo may be destroyed by
jhurninc or tearing out their tents, or
?by the use of sprays.
ATTENTION TO GRAPEVINES
.Pruning Should Be Done in Late Fall
or Early Winter Months, and
Never in Spring.
Grapevines should always be pruned
:in the late fall or early winter months
and never in sprin?. If the pruning is
done in spring, die vines are sure to
lose so much sap from "bleeding" thut
much of the vigor of the vine is lost
and consequently the fruit crop suffers
in just that proportion. The grape is
always grown upon canes of the pres
ent year and not upon the canes of last
season, hence it is necessary to prune
away or cut off the major part of last
season's canes, leaving a few buds only
at the base or near the older wood
to produce the canes that ure to be
come fruit bearers. Four or five buds,
or even two or three, therefore, will be
sufficient for this purpose. It will be
.cound also that the best fruit will be
tearest the main stalk or stem of the
r.!ant. For this reason also leave a
very few buds only for fruit bearing,
a few good young canes being worth
?much more than a quantity ol" poor,
MULCHING OF MUCH BENEFIT
Where Barnyard Manure ls Not Avail
able Coarse Straw Will Answer
Mulch the orchard, do not allow lt
.to go through the winter without a
cover. A mulch helps in 10,000 ways,
the benefits are so evident there is
no use to enumerate them.
Mulch with barnyard manure if you
have it, if not, coarse straw will an
swer, but far better still is to grow
I the mulch on the orchard, let that be
j either clover, peas, beans, vetch, rye,
:oats, wheat, or if all these fail, mulch
Don't neglect this important work.
Soil should not be left bare through
the winter, much less the orchard.
PROTECT YOUNG APPLE TREES
Grass, Weeds and Litter Should Be
Removed to Prevent Mice From
Having Nesting Place.
As mice and rabbits are likely to
.girdle young apple trees during the
winter months, the hort icu ll uri.sts of
? the Nebraska College of Agriculture
say that all grass, weeds and litter
;should be removed from the base of
the trees to preven, the mice from
; having a nesting place. Three or
.'four cornstalks tied securely around
the young trees will prevent rabbits
from growing the bark of the trunks.

from Castle Crag. The captain had
erally fallen in his tracks as soon

I Jean used to recall those words di

knew the mining game. Hadn't si
been born up in a mining camp :

Once In a while she wondered wb
Stanley had never answered her le
ter, breaking their engagement 1
was right she felt after the financh
crash, not to hold him, but she ba
thought he might have answered.
One morning old King stopped wit
news. His face was aglow with eagei
"Davy's back home," be announced
"He's my boy, not by any blood ties
but I took him when he was a li ttl
shaver after his paw died and brough
him up. He's been away to school, min
ing school, or school of mines, and be'l

But even that did not prepare Jeai
for Davy as he was. She rode early th?
next morning over to where the cap
tain was at work, aud half way derri
the trail she met him-talL*2Hrown-eyed
bare-headed, his shirt open at tb<
throat with a tame gray squirrel or
one shoulder and a dog at his heels
He had walked down to the main road
he said, to get the mail sack when tb(
stage went by. Aud he handed her c
letter from Stanley. She opened anc
read it after the big, brown-eyed boj
had gone up toward King's Rest.
"When 1 began to miss you and real
ized how lonely you must be 1 fell
like a dog uot to have answered your
letter, but it staggered nie at the time,
of course, and 1 admired you for your
stand. Now I've wakened up, Jean, and
by the time you get this I'll be on my
way West, to you, dear, patient,
brave little girl."
Jean stood and smiled thoughtfully.
Dave was the only person who could
make Matatao smile. Her brown,
wrinkled face would crinkle up every
time she saw him, and her slow black
eyes followed his figure lovingly. Once
she came opon them both, standing on
the trail high above the timberline at
sundown on Lookout rock. Dave leaned
toward the girl longingly, his face
aglow with love, his Hps framing
quick, broken words of pleading, and
Matatao stood like a statue watching
until she saw him take Jean In his
arms, when she slipped out of sight
back Into the underbrush.
It was night when Stanley came up
to the cabin. He was spent with the
long ride and out of humor.
"How are you, captain, and you.
Jean? I rode down some old Indian
woman on the trail. It was dark and
the horse was stumbling. She's down
He got no further. Jean was out of
the door and flying down the trail.
She knew every step of the way even
in the dark. Matatao had dragged her
self out of the path into the bushes
like a wounded animal.
"Me go fust," she whispered. "Tell
Davey gold-under-King's Rest-"
As old King said afterward, lt was
just like an Indian to get humor out

"And captain," he said when ho
brought the news to Un; cai'in. "It
flows right down into your claim too,
so we're going to win out."
But the captain was too busy with
old King to talk, and Dave stepped
