Standard Spray for Plant
Stock solutions may be made now
for the season's operations and kept
on hand for use when needed. To
make this solution, dissolve blue
stone (copper sulphate) in water at
the rate of one pound of bluestone
to one gallon of water. Use only
-wooden, glass, copper or earthen
ware vessels. Place the bluestone in
a cloth bag and suspend it for a few
hours, just under the surface pf the
water. Then slake one pound of fresh
stone lime for each pound of blue
stone, adding enough water to make
one gallon for each pound of lime
used. Thus if you use four pounds 'of
bluestone you will have four gallons
of lime solution.
To prepare the spray for use, put
one quart of the bluestone solution
and 10 quarts of-water in the spray
er tank. Start the pump with a
stream, not a spray nozzle, and with
good pressure direct the stream back
into the tank. Then while the pump
5s running strong, pour in slowly one
quart, of the lime solution. Pour the
lime water slowly and let it enter the
liquid in the tank at the same point
.where the bluestone spray is being
pumped in. This insures quick and
thorough mixing. After the mixing is
complete, continue to pump the-solu
tion back into itself for a minute or
two. Give careful attention to strain
Do not use muddy water. Well wai
ter is better than warm stream or
Spray as soon as the dilution is
made, since it should be applied while
Another way for mixing the solu
tion is this: Add three quarts of wa
ter to one quart of bluestone stock
solution and three quarts of water to
one quart of lime stock solution. Pour
these together slowly and stir vigor
ously all the while, (For large quanti
ties of spray material increase the
two solutions by any equal number
of gallons desired.)
If one ounce of arsenate of lead
powder (or two ounces of arsenate
of lead paste) is added to this solu
tion, it becomes highly effective in de
stroying chewing insects. A little
more than a teaspoonful of nicotine
sulphate added to eight quarts of the
mixture will be effective against suck
For caterpillars, beetles and other
chewing insects poison powder ap
plied with force is one of the easiest
and most effective means of control,
and every gardener should be provid-1
ed with a dust gun. Mix one part of
arsenate of lead powder with eight
parts of air slaked lime or finely sift- j
ed ashes or road dust. Apply liberal
ly and preferably when the plants are
wet with dew.
For Plant Lice.
Many gardeners have difficulty in
controlling this insect. This is effec
tive: Djssolve one ounce'of soap in a
pint of water. Dissolve one teaspoon
full of nicotine sulphate in a pint of
' water. Mix well and add three quarts
to-make a gallon. Spray with force,
using a fine nozzle. If leaf tobacco is
available, it makes a good substitute
for the nicotine sulphate, if properly
prepared. Boil one pound of tobacco
in water for half an'hour, strain and
add water to raise to two or three
gallons. It is then ready for use.
These two solutions may also be used
with some effect against the harle
quin or calico bugs.-Home Deemon
What's an education? It's the right
development, in the right direction,
all the time, of the whole being, for
the purpose of giving one as mum
life as possible for himself, and to
share with others.
This means that the whole person
must be taken into account.
.Education means more than a one
sided development of one talent or
ability. It means symmetrical and
many-sided growth. The reason why
there are no more interesting people
in the world is because so many peo
ple are content with a one-sided de
velopment. They are willing to be mu
sicians and nothing but musicians.
They are willing to be newspaper
men and nothing but newspaper men.
They are willing to be lawyers and
nothing but lawyers; teachers and
nothing but teachers; ministers and
nothing but ministers. And so their
range of thinkings of conversation',
and of action is limited. True educa
tion takes into account a whole being,
with many possibilities-a life which
has in it the elements of surprise and
an eagerness to know everything that
can be known about a very great
world, in order to sympathize with
and enter into the thought, so far as
possible, of all sorts and condition
of men.-Jtev.Charles M .Sheldon in

Education Board Names Text
Adoption of textbooks for the pub
lic schools of South Carolina was
completed yesterday after several
days of conference on various texts
which had been submitted.' The board
of education has been in session sev
eral days and yesterday announced
that its work had been practically
Approximately 32 contracts with
book publishing houses remain to be
signed up, but this work will be com
pleted within a day or'two. Repre
sentatives of various publishing
houses have been in Columbia in num
bers recently and many texts have
been brought to the attention of the
iboard. The books for the next five
years will be somewhat higher in
price, it was understood yesterday,
than they were under the old con
tracts as the cost of practically every
thing that goes into their making has
advanced in recent years.
J. E. Swearingen, state superin
tendent of- education, when asked
yesterday for a list of the books
adopted by the board, said that a list
had hot been prepared, yet for pub
lication. He said, however, that the
list would be available in a few days.
The law of the state, as is general
ly known, provides for a readoption
of textbooks for the public schools
every five years. The books adopted
by the board at its meeting will be
used over the state in the schools
during the next five years. Provision
is made with the book companies
whereby old books may be exchanged
in part payment for new books, this
arrangement saving much money - to
the people of the s tate.-The State.
The teacher-usually-lives and
labors too much in an atmosphere of
social isolation, created by the
thoughtfulness of the world outside
the schoolroom walls.
Parents look to the school to re
place the home for a few hours each
day. They delegate parental respon
sibility and discipline-sometimes
with a feeling of great gladness to
be rid of a burden for a little while.
Do they hold up the hands of the
teachers as they should? Commonly
they do' not. Too many parents, with
out investigation, take indignantly
whatever complaints the child pleas
ies to bring home. If the child says
the teacher is unfair, the parent, in
stead of having it out with the child,
goes on the warfare, with blood in
the eye for the teacher.
The marvel is not that many of
our public schools are poorly taught.
The wonder is that so much of the
teaching maintains so high a stand
If you are a parent what do you
know of the woman or the man who
teaches your child? What interest
have you taken in what is being done
for your child beyond writing an oc
casional note of request or remon
strance? Is your child's teacher your
friend. You ought certainly to have
a common^ interest in the training of
the young person who carries your
name and is to do the work of man
or'woman in the days to come.
Take in the teacher's problem, and
with a little serious thought make it
your own. The teacher's day is spent
in a room not with two or three chil
dren, but with, it may be two or three
You say to the teacher, "Keep
them interested"-and how would
you do it if the task was yours? What
arts would you use to fascinate that
roomful and make the printed page
and the oral recitation perfectly de
You need not wonder if teachers'
nerves are sometimes rasped to the
raw. You need not be surprised to
find them human and fallible. You,
in the same place, would be.
The teacher needs contrast, recrea
tion, refreshment more than most.
The teacher must have chances to
play. When the salary is paid the
smaller part of the community's ma
terial obligation^ is discharged. We
pay those who rear houses of brick
and mortar more than we pay those
who are building temples not made
with hands wherein the human spirit
The teacher enriched by the red
blooded circulation of life between
schoolroom sessions is the teacher
who has most to carry 'to the pupil
and thus to give to the home.
'Contacts for true friendship's sake
between teacher and parent ought
in all ways to be encouraged. The
teacher deserves to be an honored
guest at the family fireside of any
pupil-and at firesides of many
families unrelated in any way to her
daily routine. Parents who come to
the schoolhouse to interfere with dis
cipline and the day's work are a pest,
not to be tolerated: the other sort,
who want to help, should be made
welcome, as partners of the teachers,
as true friends of the taught.-Se
