mix thoroughly into a mash with 4
gallons of water, in which has beer

of cultivated crops. After the mash
has stood for several hours scattei
it in lumps of about the size of a mar
ble over'the fields where the injury
is beginning to appear. Put it abou
the bases of the plants which hav
been set out. Apply the mash late
in the day, so as to have the poison
in place around the plants before
night, when the cutworms are active
Apply a second time if necessary.

CULLING OUT THE
Clemson College, June 12.-No
herd can be brought up and main
tained at a high standard without
constant culling, according to L. V.
Starkey, Chief of the Animal Hus
bandry Division, who believes that
the hog offers the greatest oppor
tunity for culling and selection of
all classes of livestock.
The best time in the year to de
cide whether or not a sow is worth
keeping is just after weaning time.
Then is the time to decide whether
or not a sow has proven profitable.
If a sow does not farrow a litter; if
she farrows a litter and does not
raise them; if she fails to come in
heat; if she produces an ununiform
litter; she should usually be dis
posed of. If such sows .should hap
pen to produce a litter, the pigs are
likely to show the same weakness
as their dam.

REMEDY AGAINST LAWN ANTS
To get rid of lawn ants entomolog
ists of the United States Department
of Agriculture suggest drenching the
tests with boiling water or pouring
in a small quantity of kerosene oil.
Similar treatment may be applied to
nests between or beneath paving
stones. Spraying the lawn with kero
sene emulsion or with very strong
soap wash is also recommended. For
large ant nests disulphid of carbon
injected into the nest by means of an
oil can or a small syringe is recoip
mended to kill the ants. The fumes
of disulphid of carbon have a very
disagreeable odor and are inflamma
ble, but they are not injurious to
higher animals in the open air.
