icumber beetle. This beetle or pa

most any other green 'vegetation

The larva or grub confines its ac
ity to corn and various grasses
und growing in low moist lands,
mmonly known as bottom lands.
e eggs are laid by the parent beetle
m about the first of March to the
iddle of April. Corn planted on low

ry often seriously damaged and
metimes completely destroyed by

a height of about ten Inches no
rious injury occurs.
Avoid planting bottom lands infested

There are several other diseases of

Uses and Abuses of Fertili zer

6. FERTILIZERS AND THE HOME GARDEN.
The Last of a Series of Six-Articles.
A farmer that we used to know quite .well always put on WS garden plot
a sack of guano and three or four loads of stable and other kinds of berUm
yard manure. His garden covered about one-fifth of an acre, and was good
land to begin with. In fact, he had selected a good, rich spot of ground for:
his garden. The fertilizer he applied amounted to- a thousand pounds. per
acre, and the barnyard manure to about seven or eight tons. Of course ha -
grew a good garden, as most people do, and yet he often wondered why his.
garden was s'oriuch better than other parts of his farm. . Be was a good
farmer and made plenty. of everything, and to spare. He -knew that he mide
liberal applications of fertilizers and manures to his garden, but was nper
quite willing to acknowledge that these made all the difference in the Ylds
Our- gardens are usually the richest spots on the farm, and are so only, be.
cause we make them so by fertilization and cultiyation. Every acre in. the:
average farm could be made just as rich.if we tried to miake It so.. We do
not consider sufficiently the factors which make fertile land. We- do 30%
strive to- do intensive farming, but rather make it as extensive as our acres
will allow. When we wish to make an additional bale of cotton, or bushel. of
corn, we take in more land instead of enriching what Is already under culta
Dr. L. H. Bailey has given in his book, "The Principles of Vegetable Garde:
ing," some valuable suggestions on the use of commercial 'fertilizers. "The
kind and amount of fertilizers," he says, "are to be- determined by o-fera
circumstances: (1) The earliness or quickness with which the crop is.o IS
obtained; (2) the intensity of the operations to whichithe man is conitted
(3) the character of the land as regards tilth and texture; (4) the characte.'

it must be fertilized If the gardener meets with success.- Competitionn ie
truck-growing business can be met In no other way'than by lIberallydfertm

fertilizers must be applied in excess of'the actual needs of te plants. ItIs
Impossible to distribute a very small quantity of fertilizeftrover -large'ares.
Vegetables are such rapid growing plants that one need not fear tki
mtich of the fertilizer will. leach out through the soil on account of rain. If
It Is applied close to or in the drill row, all of it should be saved. The
plants will absorb It before it gets .away. .*The formula- generalle reedono
ed consists of a complete fertilizer, though the acid phosphate and nitrogefl
should come from different sources, even in. tihe same fertiliser applied -at any
given time. The mixture for gardens should be composed of as many k~
of Ingredients as possible, carrying the three fundam'ental elements of plant
food-potash, nitrogen and phosphoric acid.
Voorhees recommends heavy applicatlins of such mixtures to the corn
mercial gardens and to truck patches. He says 1,004) to 5,000 pounds- per se
of such mixture should be :applied to asparagus, and as much to beets a &
turnips; less than that to peas and beans. With anly amount an after-appliea

Baley that any. delay In the gi'owth of -lettuce or radishes wi

ble. It cut down the markiet.value. The way to remnove aniy caus. for this
Is to fertilize well and properly and then cultivate. *The tursiip is inade very -
inferior when there is a check in growth. Thie vegetables that are- thus stunt
ed seem to revert to the original type fromnwhich they were derived,-espeil

to fertilization and cultivation. Fertilizers should be applied to thO egS'8
table garden as early after the spring breag as possible, as the soil ought .
to be saturated with rich plant food- before the plants begin to grow very
much. Then they will grow much more -rapidly and. mak far hietter voe
tables. The second application, should be made about the time the -young
plants are half grown. This is as definite as a statement regarding this
practice can be made. For all prize crops; a third and four'th application is
