A BAD ORCHARD ENEMY.
June is the month wben careful in

apple and lbear trees to see that the
newly hatched larvae of the borer
beetle are headed off. While some or
chardists iacate the trunks of the
young trees with wrappers of one kind
or another. whiich extend a couple of
Inches into the soil. or paint the trunks
with whitewash in which a rather
strong solution of carbolic acid has
bee added. these precautions should
not be allowed to take the place of an
individual tree Inspection. This is best
done by keeping all grass and weeds
hoed away from the trunk of the tree.

lnebs below the surface of the ground

presence of the newly hatched borers
will be indicated by a drop of discolor

bit of brown woed dust. If the borers

this brown excreta will be considera

This dead bark should be carefully

pests, a little peeled twig will answer
the purpose nicely, the use of It often
preventing a serious cutting of the
bark and tree. When the borers have
been cleaned out the wounds should be
packed tight with moist soil, so as to
hasten the healing process. There is
no other single pest which does as
much prftary damage to fiuit trees as

The present uneampled solicitude
of the fruit jobbers' trust for the finan

just enough returns for their produce

a price for a given shipment of prod

the clique what that price wa-s. and
the victim could wait until he got
black in the face, but he would get no
better offer. In time growers woke up
ad realized how they had been hood

Some dissatisfaction has been felt by

While the sod bound orchard way
produce fruit of a superior color and
make the work at harvest time a little
cleaner, these are about the only ad
vantages that can be claimed for the
plan. The main disadvantages of the
system are that it too often furnishes
an easy excuse for turning the orchard
lot Into a pasture. that It consumes
moisture and fertlity that the trees
sorely need. while It reduces the size
of the fruit from a third to a half

of insect pests which are thus able to
propagate undisturbed. If a careful
survey of the situation seems to show
that there is more money in raising
hay than there Is in producing fruit.

Something About a Historic English

the space between the two horns being
represented by a deep ravine. The
co:se runs round the horseshoe, the
start being at the end of one horn and
the finish at the end of the other. The
result of this Is that the equestrians
who on other courses contrive to see
both start and nish by the simple
process of riding across while the race
is in progress cannot do so at Good
wood. They must elect which they
will see and remain there. On the
other hand. the course is very easy to
follow with glasses.

be put in the glass.
