I wish to call the attention of read

Illinois farmer, to the necessity of
hunting caterpillar eggs now. This
should be done in every orchard where
the insects were present last season.
I have found that it is an easy matter
to discover the eggs when the trees
are bare. They form rings competely
round the smaller branches. A light
boy can climb up and with his knife
cut the rings which can then be easily
detached from the wood. We have
followed this practice for many years
following attacks of the caterpillar.

far easier to do this than-to hunt the
tents of the grown caterpillars and
have to destroy the colony by means

no living creature is made to suffer,
while burning the insects always
seems to me cruel, though it has to be
done when other means of preventing
their ravages are not at hand.

nothing will grow on the grouhd where
the ash-heap is dumped. A much better
practice would be to use the ashes on the

HORTICULTURE AS BUSINESS
For the Winning of Success It Must
Be Taken Up Seriously and
Would-be fruit growers, according to
a recent writer on horticulture as a
business, are in constant danger of
going wrong in the efforts by follow
ing the advice of theorists, of men
who make of horticulture a pastime.
These men "break into our pspers
with wonderful theories and startling
results of so-called careful experi
ments, all of which are valueless and
misleading." In this connection the
student of horticulture who is wise is
advised to look for the credentials of
a writer on this subject, just as he
would look first, before reading, at
the author's name on the title page
of a book, and form his judgment and
base his credence on what he knew or
could find out about this author.
In this article of protest, says the
Prairie Farmer, the author says that
"there is perhapas no other business,
unless it is the practice of medicine,
in which there is so much room for
rank guessing." Yet it is every day
more manifest that horticulture is a
business and one that can be managed
with as great precision, certainty and
success as any other. There are now
a very large number of men in the
country who make a success of it,
that is, a financial success in this
business of fruit growing.
Until recently horticulture as a pro
fession has been looked upon with
some contemept by farmers whose la
bors are of a more back-breaking and
hand-hardening sort. Though thou
sands of farmers have raised a little
fruit as a side issue, yet their care of
fruit tree and plant has usually been
mostly of a haphazard sort. They
have seemed to consider fruit as an ac
cidental product of nature's bounty,
not as something produced and per
fected by man's care and attention.
But horticulture is coming to be one
of the greatest industries in some of
our states, and as such has attracted)
and is attracting many who aspire to
success as fruit growers. Some of
these have already tried and failed,
partly because they have not followed
reliable guideg. Of course, too, in some
cases they have not patiently awaited
results after doing what wise guides
directed. The writer mentioned thinks
that there is a great field open to the
horticulturist, and anyone who reads
the statistics showing the increased
yearly consumption of fruit in our
country must see that this Is so. But,
he avers, this business is one that, like,
any other, must be mastered all its
intricacies if success is to be won. "If
a man masters his business he must
study the laws of nature as governing
soil conditions, effect of atmospheric
changes, plant life, insect life, proc
esses of growth and ripening, fertiliza
tion both of bloom and soil, and when
he his covered all these fields ot
knowledge' he is just where the mer
chant is when he starts in—he has
still all the problems of market which
the merchant has. He must know
what to produce and where and how
to dispose of his production."
The fact seems to be that if success
is to be won in horticulture a man
must take it up seriously. He must
not be led away by any sentiment he
has for nature, and he must not be
satisfied with anything less than prac
tical results. The fascinations of fruit
growing are real, but they are likely
to receive most attention from those
who pay least attention to the sober
facts of the business, and these are
but blind and extravagant guides to

Treating Frozen Plants.
If plants get frozen, as may happen
with the best of care, they should be
thawed out slowly by sprinkling them
with cold water. In this way even bad
ly frozen plants may be saved. Toma
toes, the most easily damaged of garden
plants, have been restored without seri
ous injury after being frozen stiff, by
turning the hose upon them and treat
ing the tops to a thorough bath of cold
water. House plants may often be saved
in the same way. But the work should
be carefully done to avoid injuring the
foliage. Frozen leaves should not be
handled if it can be avoided. If there
are many of the plants, they should be
placed in a cold room and the tempera
ture gradually raised, if it is possible to
do so. On no account should the plants
be subjected to extremes of temperature.
