THE BROWN TAILED MOTH.
The brown tailed moth. a pest which
was Introduced into this country from
i Europe some years ago, bids fair to
increase the area of its devastation In
spite of vigorous measures that have
been taken to keep it within a rather
restricted area in the New England
states. The Rural New Yorkeran ag
deaultural paper that Is always keenlyI
stive to dangers of this kind which
are a menace to the public welfare.
has lately sounded a warning of a
probable spread of the scourge to New
York state from New Mmpshre,
where it has had a foothold for ser
eral years past. Unless the precan
tions taken to keep It in check are
materially augmented the chances
seem good that it will spread over an
ever increasing territory. Tf: ;adult
type is a pretty moth about seven
eighths of an inch In length. with .1
brown tal about an eighth of an inch
in length, from which it takes its name.
The female lays her eggs in the last
two or three weeks in July. depositing
them on the underside of lea-es. her
choice being those of the pear and eli.
The little caterpillars emerge in the
course of about three weeks and im
mediately begin to eat the leaves. con
suming the green portion and leaving
but the leaf skeleton. In the fall the
little worms, which have done slight
denage thus far, make nests for them
selves, which they fasten securely to
the limbs of the trees in which they
have been feeding. In the spring ther I
get out and are at work as soon as
the leaves start. eat voraciously and
grow rapidly. soon attaining a length
of an inh ani a quarter. When the
worms reach this size they will strip
a tree of its leafage in short order
Dunee prevented by spruying ti~or
ughy wIth some arsenical compound.
In sections where the worms have
been worst they have been known to:
strip fruit and shade trees of all their
leafage. and when this is done early
I in the season it means death to them.
Whie this pest is one of the very
worst which horticulturists have on
their hands. it is a matter of con
gatulation that it does not spread to:
new territory al rapidly as some foes i
with which the orchardist has to deal.
Serious enough is It. however, to call
for the cooperation of federal. state
and local authorities In the suppres
sion of It. _ _
SHOULD KNOW IT.
The adobe or "sticky" soil, as It Is
common',y called, found in several sec-1
tions ot the west, while very rich and:
well suited to the growing of apples,
pears and some other fruits, is very
dfmcult to handle and must be plowed
at just the right time-a few days fol
lowing a rain, when the "slacking"
bas advanced to the proper stage-toj
secure results that are at all satisfae-i
tory. -Rather oddly, though, while.
continued hot and dry weather tends
to form a hard crust a few inches be
neath the surface, there seems to be
no other soil which retains Its subsoil
moisem'e more completely or on which
fruit trees will stand more protracted
drought. When one buys a "sticky"
Ranch he anould have In mind that It
will either be necessary for him to'
have a solid macadam road leading to
his place. If he Is to reach It during
the wet season, or to lay in a sufmcient
stock of supplies and provisions so
that he will not have to leave hisj
piice for two or three months ata
time. The only pointer that the pro.
speetre bayer of a "sticky'' ranch
needs Is that he should be thoroughly
acquainted with the ant~c of the soil
duig the rainy season, so that he:
will not be taken by surprise when the
sticky time comes.
*PROTECT THE ORCHARDS.
All through the northern states the~
snow lies deep tn many sections. Thi
means that the orchards are In espe-'
cIal danger of injury from rabbits
whose other food supplies are madd
inaccessible by the heavy blanket of
snw. And as the winter advances
the hunger of these ever present pests
increases, making the likelihood of
damage by them the greater. If the
tes have not been protected and the
rabbIts have begun their work of de
struction, radical measures should be
adopted. These should include wrap-;
ping of the trunks of all young trees

aready made with a strong resin soap,;
the use of traps. dogs, ferrets and guns
In exterminating the offenders and, If
worst come to worst, the scattering in
the runways of pieces of apples on:
which powdered arsenic has been
placed. Of course such poisoned baits
should be covered with brush in case
any of the farm animna have the run
of the orchard. The trees should he

the rabbits will not have made serious
havoc before their depredations are
A Ban on Patterns.
"There is one kind of correspondence
sometimes received by women olerksj
that makes heads of firms hoppingf
mad" said the pretty stenographer.
"That is dress patterns. They don't
mind letters and magazines, but if a
girl wants to keep on good terms with
her employer and maybe keep) her job!
she had better advise pattern compa
nies to send their communication's to
some other address. I know one em
ployer of about 100 girls who has put
up notices in the workroom to the ef
feet that nO patterns can be received!
at that office. Not many men go that
far, but all hold the sauxe grudge
against patterns. A girl who has a.
new dress to make up can't help
spreading the pattern out the minutes
she gets it. Thea every other woman~
In the offce becomes interested. Noth
ng is so disorganizing to women
clerks as patterns. Nothin:r takes up!

for putting a ban or. patterns."-New

In sections where the inroads of the
woolly aphis are likely to be serious
the young fruit tree may be protected
by removing the soil for a distance of
two or three feet around the tree to
the depth of a couple of inches and
placing a layer of tobacco stems and
leaves or dust. These should be
soaked thoroughly and the earth re
placed. While the same means may
be used to protect the root systems

In many of these localities oats are
not doing as well as in the pat. and

An attorney went to a ilvery stable
and hired a team for two or three
hours and at the end of that time, in
a state of absentmindedness, left the
team at another livery stable, where
it remained eight days. At stable No.
1 there was no worry about the team.
They knew the attorney was perfectly
good for the pay. They knew that If
he kept the team a month the bill
would be pauil promptly on presenta
tion. They presumed that he knew
what be was about and concluded It
was his business and not theirs. At
stable No. 2 there was equal freedom
from anxiety. The attorney came
there. left the team and went away.

into a stall and "chalked It down" on

Salad of the Shoes.
Freshmen have troubles the world
over. The "conserits," as they are
called at the famous Ecole Polytech

amusing Initiation called the salad of
shoes. The freshmen report some
days before the upper class men so
that they can receive their uniforms
and become familiar with the routine
of the school. The first morning after
their tormentors retrn the freshmen
are aroused by a demand that they

that pile of shoes.

we no longer invite people to break
fast. The reason is to be found in the
state of moInd that usually posess
the free and Independent citizen a
that hour In the morning, a state of
mind that makes him unbearable to
himself and to every one who comes
near him. Presumably It was not ever
so. for Invitations to break-fast were
once comamon enough. and not so long
ago either. Mr. Gladstone used to
have guests to breakfast every Thurs
day morning as recently as 1884, and
It was thought sufficient to supply tea

From the rapidly moving ranks rQse

What a Summer Cold May Do.
A su-.mer cold if neglected is just as
apt, to develop into bronchitis or pneu
monia as at any other season. Do not
nelect it. Take Foley's Honey and Tar
promptly. It loosens the cough, soothes
and heals the inflamed air passage, and
expels the cold from the system." W. E.

Costa Rican Volcanoes.
Costa jilen hns been sufiject to earth
quakes for many years. l'art of the
republIc Is exceedIngly mountaino~s.
and In this part of the country there
are more than a score of volcanoes,
some of them dead, but a few that
break out periodically. There are
three or sfour that have been active
for raore than a century. Some of
these are near San .Jose, the capItal.
Costa Ricans have always believed that
earthquakes, which the country has ex
perienced ever since It was first set
ted by Spanish adventurers were
caused by the volcanoes. There is
good ground for this belief, because it
has been noticed that earthquakes of
more or less intensity followed the ac
tivity of these volcanoes. If the vol.
canic eruptions were violent the earth
quakes were correspondingly severe.
