SPRAYING AWAY Ti
tetro! Measures For Orch
ard And Garden.
Clemson College.-"Within the next
os&utu the orchard trees will probably
be in the proper stage for the spring
?sqcR-uyiugs to control worms. Arsenate
ai Lead should be purchased as :?oon
?a possible and should not be put off
?til the day the spraying should be
ofcr.e. Everyone who expects to have
fcteit without worms this summer
i/tould consider the purchasing of
?Way materials for the spring and
rammer sprayings as an obligation
a?: to be neglected. The first spray
iafcr of peaches for worms should he
dfcn?i when the petals have fallen and
mest, of the shucks slipped, which is
rifcmt ten days after full bloom. The
spraying of apples should be immedi
ately after all petals have falleu and
baicre the calyx closes.

Apple Lice: Apple "trees when tho
?erpves begin to grow are very fre
qgpently attacked by lice or aphis. The
ywng_ leaves curl and the tree's
SfBwth is checked bj" the lice sucking
tile plant juices. The fruit yield ?
reduced and the fruit will be deform
ed and poorly developed.-and this
alfce assists in spreading diseases.iFor
Gfeitrol: Begin just as soon as the
fifce are noticed on the tender young
lewsres and when the leaves begin to
ciwi and turn yellow. Spray with nico
tine sulfate (also known as Black
Leaf 40), diluted at the rate of abort
1 teaspoonful to 1 gallon of water, or
a haut y? coffee-cup full to 50 gallons

Gfffden Insects for March and April.
Among tho snring garden insocts
which usually require attention dur
reg March and April are the potato
beetle or bug. the cabbage worm, and
the cribbage lice. Very little troublo

tliese pests. The main point in the
control is to watch the plants closely,

pegts, start controlling them.

To Control the Cabbage Worm: -

ECONOMY IN GOOD HIGHWAYS
2cod Demonstration Made by Motor

At Its meeting in Chicago the
Jnitcd States Chamber of Commerce

nent, through the president and the
lirector general of railroads, be peti
ioued, among other things, to "com
pete trunk highways for heavy traffic
vhere they can be used in relieving
.ailroad congestion." Note the phrase
'heavy traffic"-which calls, not mere
y for graded highway rights of way,

The day is coming-In fact, It is

Double Amount of Team Power Re

To see what happens at the end of
