ENEMY TO GRASS AND CORN.
The So-Called Grass Web Worm, an
How It May Be Combated.
Grass web worms, It will be remem
bered, were somewhat destructive last
year in portions of Honsselaer, Colum
bia and Albany counties, New York,
says the Country Gentleman. The In
juries were In most cases confined to
grass lands, particularly tho drier
knolls, and tho damage was empha
sized by tho prevailing dry weather.
Tho largo amount of rain the present
season has prevented depredations of
this character from being noticeable,
though grass web worms appear to be
abundant in some fields, sinco a re
lort has just come to us of rather se
vero injury In Columbia county to
corn planted on recently plowed sod
Grass web worms, sometimes known
as corn web worms, come from mi
nute whlto eggs deposited by tho
light-brown, white-marked moths so
frequently observed flying in largo
numbers in late afternoon and early
evening in grass fields nnd Invariably
alighting with tho wings wrapped
closely about the body, the latter par
allel with tho grass stem upon which
the Insect rests. Tho web worms
themselves are dull-colored, sparsely
haired, brown-headed caterpillars
nbout half an Inch long. They live In
web-lined retreats at or just beneath
tho surface of tho soil, and a little In
vestigation In infested grass lands or
about hills of corn troubled by this
Insect should result in uncovering tho
depredators. They work on corn in
various ways, sometimes tunneling tho
stalks, occasionally eating holes lu
the sides of tho stems or feeding to
sonio extent on tho leaves.
There were some Injuries of this
kind last year, and as a rulo trouble
of this nature mny bo prevented by
early fall plowing, slnco this de
prives tho web worms of their accus
tomed provender before they have an
opportunity to go Into hibernation, nnd
we should expect u considerable num
ber of them to perish before any
green food such as young corn is
available in the spring. Another pre
ventive measure would bo to delay
planting as late as possible, Ir. tho
hopo that a considerable number of
tho web worms would succumb before
tho corn camo up. Another precau
tion which might be taken In plant
ing sod lands would bo to put In
about twice the usual amount of seol,
lu the hope that u fair stand would be
secured, in splto of web-worm Inju
ries. This would necessitate somo
thinning on areas where web worms
were not nbundnnh but In any event
this would be preferable to replanting.
There Is no piactlrul method of check
ing outbreaks of this character In cul
tivated Holds, owing to the expense In
volved. About tho only thing that
can bo done following severe injury is
GRINDSTONE WITH PEDAL.
Bicycle Is Used to Transmit the Pow
er from the Foot to the Stone.
A reader of one of our exchanges
has devised a simple means of turn
ing tho grindstone by foot power. As
shown in the illustration, tho gearing
of a bicycle Is tised to transmit the
power from the foot to the stone. This
device, says I'ralrio Far'mer, Is said
to work satisfactorily when properly
adjusted. A moro steady power is se
cured for tho stono than when ordi
nary one-way foot lever Is used.
Paint the Farm Wagons.
During the summer months, after
the busy work Is over, Is a good tlmo
to clean up and paint the farm wagons
and Implements. A strong paint can
bo made by using equal parts of red
lead and Venetian red, mixed to work
lug consistency with pure raw oil.
Keep well stirred whllo using and ap
ply with a brlstlo brush. If a gloss
finish is desired, Farm Journal says to
apply two coats with a little coach
varnish added In mixing second coat.
This paint is durable and not ex
pensive and will suvo dollars in repair
According to Folsom's Entomology,
tho number of Insect species already
known Is about 300,000, and it Is safe
to .estimate tho total number of exist
ing species as at least 1,000,000, Con
servative observers hold, remtuUa
Hural New Yorker, that n majority of
theso species can be found In attend
ance at anv Siimlav school ulcnie.
There arc two classes of remedies; those of known qaal
ity and which are permanently beneficial in effect, acting
gently, in harmony with nature, when nature needs assist
ance; and another class, composed of preparations of
unknown, uncertain and inferior character, acting tempo
rarily, but injuriously, as a result of forcing the natural
functions unnecessarily. One of tho most exceptional of
tho remedies of known quality and excellence, is the over
pleasant Syrup of Fiirs. manufactured by tho California
Fig Syrup Co., which represents tho nctivo principles of
plants, known to act most beneficially, in a pleasant syrup,
in which tho wholesome Californian blue figs nre used to con
tribute their rich, yet delicate, fruity flavor. It is tho remedy
of all remedies to sweeten and refresh ui.d cleanse the system
gently and naturally, and to assist o:,o in overcoming consti
pation and the many ills resulting therefrom. Its active princi
ples and quality nro known to physicians generally, and the
remedy has thcrcforo met with their approval, as well as with
tho favor of many millions of well informed persons who know
of their own personal knowledge and from uctual experience
that it is a most excellent laxative remedy. We do not claim that
it will euro all manner of ills, but recommend it for what it really
represents, a laxativo remedy of known quality und excellence,
containing nothing of an objcctionablo or injurious character.
There aro two classes of purchasers; those who are informed
as to the quality of what they buy and tho reasons for tho excellence
of articles of exceptional merit, and who do not lack courage to go
elsewhere when a dealer offers au imitation of any well known
article; but, unfortunately, there aro sonio people who do not know,
and who allow themselves to bo imposed upon. They cannot expect
its beneficial effects if they do not get tho genuitio remedy.
To tho credit of tho dnipj-ists of tho United Stales bo it said
that nearly, all of them valuo their reputation for professional
integrity and tho good will of their customers too highly to offer
imitations of the
Genuine Syrup of Figs
manufactured by tho California Fig Syrup Co., and in order to
buy the genuine article and to get its benuilcial effects, ono has
only to note, when purchasing, tho full uauio of tho Company

Is a whlto He ever Justified? That
at least sonio peoplo believe it has
no exctiso Is proved by the following
tale: An ancient rabbi camo to a city
where all the peoplo wero truthful,
married ono of tho inhabitants, had
two children and prospered. Ono day
a neighbor called when the rabbi's
wife was washing her head, and tho
rabbi, going to tho door, was seized
by false modesty and said that she
had gone out. Thereupon both of his
children died, and, as no one died in
that city beforo reaching old age, the
neighbors made inquiries, the rabbi
confessed what he had done, and was
ordered to leave the city immediately.
