To Russia For a Parasite.
Pf. L. O, Howard chief of the bu
reau of entomology, department of ag
riculture, has gone to the Crimea to
visit the eminent Russian entomologist
M. Mokhrshelsky and confer with him
:bout a parasite that preys upon the
dlkworm, the Russian having recently
liseovered what he claims to lie the
natural enemy of the destructive silk
worm parasite, says the Washington
Herald. Fr. Howard is convinced that
if the Russian's discovery Is genuine
the way will soon be opened for a
thriving silk industry in the United
States. He left Washington armed
with the necessary authorization to
npply to the American embassy at St.
Petersburg for assistance in procuring
the privilege to export various breeds
;f parasites from Russia, from which
he Is hopeful of obtaining one variety
that will check the nrvngeg of the silk
worm's foe in this country. Experts
ileclare that ns soon as an effective
method tor the preservation of the silk
worm's life Is discovered silk manu
