HOW TO COMBAT
For the purpose of controlling them
insects may be divided into two clas
ses, viz., biting and sucking. The bit
ing insects obtain their food by chew
-._4 ing the substance upon which they
are feeding. Sucking insects on the
other hand obtain their food by in
serting their beaks into tissues and
sucking the sap. Potato bugs or beet
les are good examples of the
first class, while plant lice
are good examples of the second class.
Bearing this point in mind the in
secticides are classified into (a) pois
i.,ns and (b) contact sprays. When
insects eat the foliage the plant is
covered with a poison which when
taken into the stomach will kill the
insect. As arsenic is the principal
element used in making sprays, they
are gently spoken of- as arsenical
When, on the other hand, the insect
obtains its food by sucking, it is use
less to apply a poison spray because
the past -would not get it into the
stomach; therefore, another class of
sprays is provided for which kills the
jnsects if they come in contact with
it or if covered with it. -These are
known as contact sprays.

AS TO PENSIONS.
r. Setzler Argues that the Pension
Laws Need to be Changed-State
Editor The Herald and News: I
herewith submit some questions in re
gard to our pension laws of Cofdr
First, I would ask what use is there
Q State ~board, as 'we have county
da who examine and pass on all
applications for pensions? Are they
not the Imost competent to decide who
are worthy of pensions, being elected
by the old Confederate veterans from;
diffrent sections of the county, than
the State bouardl? I verily believe they
are and should be sole arbiters of
sin,and that the State bot.

I know of one old veteran in his~
sever ty eighth year, a volunteer in
Ca&~pt. John M. Kinard's company, serv
ed in defence of Fort Sumter, after the
*evacuatioIn of the fort was sent to Vir
ginia and when Capt. Kinard was kill
ed at Cedar Creek, Dr. Willie Kinard,
first lieutenant of 'the company was
promoted to captain,' under whom he
served until the end of the war. He*
*has three children, the oldest a daugh
ter 16 years,\a son 12 years, and a.
baby 2 years. I will also state he
owns a tract of ninety acres of poor,
hilly land. Although he and wife and
two children work on the farm, for
the last three years have not made
over three light bales of cotton a
year and he has no other source of
income. I ask in the cause of justice,
/does he not deserve a pension?
I1 will also state that his application
for a pension was accoinpanied with'
a petition signed by seventy-five or
eighty of the tax payers of the com
munity, and among those who knew
his circumstances, and who were
some of the most prominent men of
I will also state that the chairman
and all the members of the county
board endorsed his application for
pension and sent it to the State board*
for approval. Lo! and behold, that:
august body sent it back disapproved.
"Oh!-justice, whither hast thou fled?"
~also hear that all of the money
aid by the tax payers of Newberrvy
ty for pensions is not given to the
eteans of the county, but some J

quantity of water to form a paste, and
dilute this to about two gallons. Slake
the lime in another vessel, add it to
the Paris Green mixture and stir. It
is then ready to be diluted. Where
the spray mixture is prepared accord
ing to the above directions it will
avoid the formation of lumps, which
can not be avoided where the Paris
green is added to the barrel of water
in dry form. The milk of lime must
not be omitted as this will prevent
the Paris green from burning the
Paris Green Dry.
Paris green may be applied to the
plants in a dry form by diluting it 10
to 50 times with land plaster, flour,
road dust, or some similar material.
The action of dew and heat will dis
solve the arsenic more or less, and
when Paris green is used in this -form
some burning of the foliage may al
ways be expect.A. There are pow
der guns on the market especially
adapted for the application of the dry

Diss'olve the soap in the wate over

This will give a smooth, creamy emul

arate after it is left standing several
weeks. Where a spray pump is acces
sible the emulsifying may be done
much more quickly by. pumping the
solution into itself from three to five
minutes. This stock solution may be
diluted to the proper percentage, as

of it is given to other counties. I am
also fully cognizant of the fact that
there are instances in the county of
persons drawing pensions who are-.not
as worthy as~ the one I have mention
I might also say he had only two
brothers then living, who served
through the war, who are taxpayers,
but have never asked for pensions.
I would respectfully ask, is there
not a pressing necessity for a change
of the pension laws to the end that
every needy Confederate veteran may
receive some compensation for the
faithful services to his country?

CILNCES OF LIFE.
Probability at Your Age of How Long
You wml Live.
After 'we are dead it probably will
not concern us whether we died at 20
Dr 50 or 90, but just now most of us
are intensely interested in the mat
ter, and being average ' persons in
sound health, we can figure out with
certainty just what our chances of
reaching any particular age, says
If we are just 20 years of age, our
ahances of liding to or beyond 30 are
nearly 12 to 1; of living to be 40, 5 3-8
to 1; to be 50, 3 to 1; to be 60, 1 2-3 to
1. Of living to be 70 we have less
than I chance in 2 1-2; to be 80, less
than 1 chance in 5 1-2, and to be 90,
less than 1-2 chanlce in 100.
If we have reached 30, our chances
to reach 40 are nearly 11 to 1; to be
50, nearly 4 1-2 to 1; to be 60, 2 1-3
to 1; to be 70, 4 1-2 chances in 10; to
be 80, 1 chance in 5 1-2; to be 90, 1
chance in 100.
The average man of 40 has 8 3-8
chances to 1 of reaching his fiftieth
birthday, 2 7-8 chances to 1 of attain
Ing 60, only 5 chances out of 10 of
reaching 70, 1 chance in 5 3-8 of
