eura vitis are all different names for
one small insect, which is often very
numerous on grape vines during sum
mer. It is about an eighth of an inch
long, of a light color, and marked by
three dark red bands. They fiy from
their positions to the under side of the
leaves when the vines are shaken and
soon light again. To combat them in
the summer when their destructive
work is noticeable is difficult Now is
the time. They may be found under
the leaves near the vines. If the vine
yard is cleaned of all litter and this
promptly burned many will be de
stroyed. The insects remaining on
the ground can be killed by a spray of
soal oil emulsion.

4?hc Kansas board of agriculture has
acquired the reputation of being one
of the best, if not the very best, organ
ization of the kind in existence! This
reputation has been gained largely
through the reports which have been
issued by Secretary Coburn. A recent
editorial article in the San Francisco
Chronicle threw this bouquet at the
board: "The Kansas board of agri
culture is doing some exceedingly val
uable work for the live stock, as well
as other interests, by ascertaining and
publishing the experience of success
ful men. We wish we had such a
board. Oor live stock interests are
actually declining. For some years
we have been urging the dairymen to
demand their share of state aid, and
there are signs that they will do so.
If our live stock men would organize
and join with them great good would
come of it What we need is a strong
state board of agriculture to take the
place of all the other boards and com
missions dealing with the product of
the soil. Then we might expect such
work as the Kansas board is now do
ing." Folks out in the broom corn district
who have any of that product stored
away are strictly in it The price is
hovering between SS5 and S95 a ton.

throw a new and
charming light up
on the character of
ton. They show
that he was a
warm friend of the
college and that
he once journey thither from Vir
ginia to place his adopted son,
young Custis, under the care of
the professors. Custis, however, did
not graduate from King's college,
as Columbia was then called. He
had fallen in love with Nelly Cal
vert, daughter of Benedict Calvert.and
ended his studies abruptly to marry
the girl of his choice. The story
of Washington's connection with the
college, which incidentally reveals
much about the father of his country
as the father of a family and some
thing of college life during the last
century, is best told in his letters to
the Rev. Dr. Cooper, president of
King's college, and to Mr. Calvert.
The first letter, dated April 3. 1773. is
from Washington to Mr. Calvert, and
reads as follows:
"I am now set down to write to you
on a subject of importance and of no
small embarrassment to me. My son-in-law
and ward, Mr. Custis, has, as I
have been informed, paid his addresses
to your second daughter, and having
made some progress in her affections,
has solicited her in marriage. How
far a union of this sort may be agree
able to you you best can tell; but I
should think myself wanting in can
dor were I not to confess that Miss
Nelly's amiable qualities are acknowl
edged on all hands and that an alli
ance with your family will be pleasing
But the couple was very young, and
the letter goes on to recommend a
postponement for two or three years,
in which time Mr. Custis "might pros
ecute his studies and render himself
more deserving of the lady and useful
That Mr. Calvert acquiesced in this
view is probable. In a letter of April
13, to Lord Dunmore, governor of Vir
ginia, Washington bids him farewell
in these words: "The design of my
journey to New York is to take my
son-in-law, Mr. Custis, to King's col
lege. If your lordship, therefore, has
any commands I shall think myself
honored in being the bearer of them."
By the end of the next month the
young man was duly entered as a stu
dent, and Washington departed from

judgment, under a firm belief of your

the better of learning, and Dr. Cooper
was addressed again in these terms:
"Mount Vernon, 15 Dec, 1773. Rev

which you were pleased to transmit to
me, of Mr. Custis' good conduct at col
lege, gave me very great satisfaction.
I hoped to have felt an increase of it
by his continuance at that place un

end, and it has been against my

if you will render me an account of
them. You will please to charge lib

engaged in the same good offices. If
the money with you is insufficient to
answer these purposes, please to ad

Less than two months later the mar

Calvert took place. This ended Wash

troops were quartered in the halls in
which he had placed his stepson.
Knocked Washington Down.
Washington was an eminently fair
man. He had a quick temper, but as
a rule he kept it under control. Some
times, however, it got the best of him.
This was the case once in Alexandria.
One of the county officers told me the
story as we stood on the second floor
of the market house in Alexandria
and looked down at the open court
within it, which is now filled with
hundreds of booths where the farm
ers oring their products for sale on
market dajs. "It was on that spot,"
said the officer, "Washington was
knocked down by Lieut. Payne. Payne
was a candidate for the legislature
against Fairfax of Alexandria. Wash
ington supported Fairfax, and when
he met Payne here, he made a remark
that Payne considered an insult, and
Payne knocked him down. The story
went like lightning through the town
that Col. Washington was killed, and
some of his troops who were stationed
at Alexandria rushed in and would
have made short work of Payne had
Washington not prevented them. He
pointed to his black eye and told them
that this was a personal matter and
that he knew how to handle it. Every
one thought that this meant a duel.
The next day Payne got a note from
Washington asking him to come to
the hotel. He expected a duel, but
went. Washington, however, was in
an amiable mood. He felt that he had
been in the wrong, and said, 'Mr.
Payne, I was wrong yesterday, but if
you have had sufficient satisfaction,
let us be friends.' There was a de
canter of wine and two glasses on the
table which- Washington had ordered
to smooth over the quarrel. The twe
drank together and became such
strong friends after that that Payne
was one of the pallbearers at Washing
The Richest Man of Hih Time.
As the years went on Washington's
lands increased in value, and when he
died, he was one of the richest men of
his time. He owned lands and stock
and negroes, and his estates amounted
j to thousands of acres. He had houses
in Alexandria and property in Wash
ington. He had valuable lands near
the present site of Pitl3burg. He was
throughout his life a money-maker,
and I was told at Alexandria that
when he was a boy he got $5 a day and
upward for his sun-eying. He put hl3
surplus money into lands, and an ad
vertisement In a Baltimore paper of
1773 states that he had 20,000 acres of
land for sale on the Ohio river. His
will, which Is now kept about twenty
miles from Washington, in the safe of
the old court house at Fairfax, Va.,
gives a detailed statement of every ar
ticle he possessed down to the calves
and sheep. His personal estate was
then put down at $532,000, and this in
cluded a vast amount of tobacco, large
numbers of cattle, sheep and horses,
nearly all of which he willed to his
wife. This will is now kept in a
wooden box, the top of which is cover
ed with glass.
CTaihincton as a Drinking Mao.
Every one drank in th.e days of
Washington, and the father of his
country always had wines upon his ta
ble. I have nowhere seen it stated
that he evr drank to excess, although
he usually consumed five glasses of
Madeira wine at dessert. During his
youth he was a very fair politician,
and among the items of his election
expenses "ben he was a candidate for
the house of burgesses of Virginia
were a hogshead and a barrel of whis
ky, thirty-five gallons of wine and
forty-three gallons of beer.
