Something; About;; .the Chinch
The United States Department
of Agriculture has in $ress and will
soon issue Bulletin No. 15,- Divi- -sion
of Entomology, entitled "The
Chinch Bug." The chinch bug is
one of the most destructive insects
whh which the American farmer
has to contend, and the depart
ment receives many requests for
information about it. This bulle-
tin is intended to meet this de
mand, and gives many new facts
concerning the life, history and
distribution of the species, and the
.whole subject of the practical
handling of its diseases in order to
assist in its destruction is treated
at length. It says few insects
have caused such pecuniary losses
as the chinch bug, and no other
insect native to the western hemi
sphere has spread its devastating
hordes over a wider area of coun
try with more fatal effect to tlio
staple grains of North America.
It is widely distributed over tho
world and hibernates in the adult
stage. Ic is of gregarious habits
and migrates in spring, summer
and autumn. The bulletin states
that it would appear that this pest
first made-its presence known in
this ' country in North Carolina
in 17S3, and mentions several seri
ous outbreaks of the bug in the
west, the estimated losses from its
ravages from 1850 to 1887 reaching
$267,000,000. It also says that it
is believed that the losses up to '
1898 amounted to fully 330,000,
000. Skilled Labor.
Generally speaking, the market
for skilled labor presents an ap
pearance of unwonted activity.
Here and there a few strikes and
lockouts present themselves, but,
as a rule, they are in industries
that are seldom free from strife of
this character. These remarks do
not, however, refer to the glass
workers, who could be working if
they were not for squabbling among
themselves. It is in the iron and
steel manufacturing industries
good barometers of trade that the
brightest situation is found. Work
men skilled in the various trades
allied to these industries find no
difficulty in keeping busy at good
wages. Through the activity in
these lines others, including, the
corner grocer, the dry goods mer
chant, and so on along the line,
are all benefitted. On the other
iiand, there is said to exist a heavy
oversupply of clerical workers in
commercial lines but it is signifi
cant that really good stenographers
and typewriters, male and female,
are reported scarce, and comlort
able salaries are easily obtainablo
by competent people.
"The mining of mica is the poetry of
mining," says Godey's. "It is impossible
to conceive of a more exciting and fascin
ating employment. The vein of mica-bearing
quartz, lying between rocks of different
formation, has been found. The cap rock
has been blasted away. Little 'nigger
heads, small lumps of crumbling mica
mixed with slate and other rock are grow
ing plentiful. Tbe rock'is carefully exam
ined by the experienced miner and all In
dications are that mica will soon be found.
A blast is made. The rock and debris are
cleared away, and thera in the bottom is a
block of the precious stuff, a ragged corner
showing itself black and glittering in the
white quartz in which it is imbedded.
With the tips of tbe fingers the miner
gently and affectionately brushes away tbe
dirt and small stones which partly cover it,
Its thickness is carefully noted, its position
in the rock is discussed, and many a specu
lation indulged in as to its size and quality.
Tbe hole is quickly drilled, tbe small blast
is made, just loosening the rock, and all
eagerly crowd around, as one of the men
with bis pick pulls away tbe broken stone.
There it lies, a black, flittering mass.so or
10 inches across its face, 3 or 4 Inches
thick and irregular in shape, as all blocks
of mica are. A good-sized block, and if
solid and of a perfect cleavage, will bo
worth many dollars. Tbe excitement is
not allayed, however, and will not be until
tbe block Is split open and we know how it
looks inside. It is a very bad thing to split
open a block at the mine and contrary ta
all rules, for there Is danger that the fine,
polished faces will be scratched and a sheet
(bin indeed, but valuable will have tq
ba taken off and thrown away,"
