HENNEPIN CANAL RULES
Captain I. t. Wheeler Replies to
In reply to questions asked by a
fisherman of Captain L. L. Wheeler,
the following extracts from the rules
and regulations governing the Illinois
and Mississippi (Hennepin) canaV
signed by the secretary of war, are
given out for publication:
These rules apply to the use, ad
ministration and navigation of the

of Illinois. The lands acquired and
owned by the United States are held

bidden, and all persons are hereby
warned under penalty of the law.
(c) Not to ride or drive along or
upon canal embankments, except
where such embankments are intend

(d) Not to enter upon these lands
for the purpose of hunting or taking
of game by any means, except with a

The cabbage butterfly, the parent of
the cabbage worw. Is pierius rap a, or
pontla, rapa. an importation, a native
of Europe, but imported, possibly in
the egg or chrysalis form Into the pro
vince of Quebec some 75 years ago, and
spreading Into Ontario and the nor
them states and Into the eastern states
to New Jersey and then south.
I find is now everywhere. The spread
of the wings Is nearly two inches, the
forewlngs yellowish white and marked
with two black dots In the female,
the male having only one. The tips
it the forewlngs of both are clouded
black and the flight is wobbly.
The female lays one egg, gluing it
underneath the cabbage leaf, then files
away to repeat the same elsewhere, but
returns again and again to glue anoth
er; in this she shows her Intelligence;
underneath the leaf is tender est, here
the egg Is protected from the hot sun
and from the keen eye of the watchful
bird and Is most securely hid, as it is
of the same color as the leaf. Butter
fly reasoning, eh? If there are no cab
bage, she seeks some other cruciferous
or allied plants. How does she know
the right kind in a garden or field full
of all sorts of vegetable plants?
The egg hatches out in about a
week, depending on the weather, and
in about two weeks the worm has
grown to one or nearly two inches
long and nearly as large as a goose
quill, afine velvet green and fat and
well favored. By this time it or rath
er they will have riddled the cabbage
to the torment and loss of the grow
er and the disgust of the cook or
housewife. The worm now ceases to
eat, looks sleepy, seeks some place to
hide and wait its change to the chrys
alis state, spinning a thread which It
loops around itself, and. gluing the
thread to some fixed place, hangs sus
pended. In about two weeks the chrysalis
gradually and sometimes almost sud
denly bursts and the butterfly escapes,
dries its wings and flies away to meet
its mate and repeat- life over again.
It is believed that the life circle is
about five weeks and the butterflies
are often seen flying about in Febru
ary here; how many broods will there
bo in one season, even if the last
chrysalis of the fall remain till the
In the earlier '70s this butterfly had
spread to central Ontario and the
worms had become so destructive as
to make the cabbage crop unsalable,
the chrysalides were hanging in every
conceivable hiding place, and many
ways were used to destroy butterflies,
worms and chrysalis. While hunting
one day I burst one and found it full
of small active worms, or grubs. I
learned that these were the larva of an
ichneumon fly that Inserted its eggs
into the body of the cabbage worm,
which eggs hatched in and fed on the
chrysalis; these increasing rapidly
kept the worm in check, nature's com
pensation. There is another cabbage butterfly,
the pierus protodise or poutia, for both
names apply. This Is a native of the
south and I have not found It in the
north. It is much like the last men
tioned, but of a dull white with the
wing spotted with dark brown. The
habit much the same. The worms art
not as large as the other, and In color
pal or dark bluish green and striped
with yellow, with black spots. One
writer says this has disappeared in
many regions: not so In Texas, as I
meet with It everywhere.
There is another butterfly, poutia
napi, the potherb butterfly. This is
much the same as the other, only the
wings are' clear white. The worms of
this do not trouble the cabbage fam
ily very much, but feed more on wild
plants. I have not found this in the
south. There Is yet another, somewhat
smaller, wings clear yellow tinged
green, said to be a native of Brazil,
but as I do not know its habits I can
not write on them.
The best remedies are with the but
terflies, with net, "catch nm and kill
um;" with the worms a spray of parls
green at the rate of one pound to 150
gallons of water, sprayed underneath
the leaves of the young cabbage plant.
When the cabbages are grown larger,
syringe with water hot enough to kill
the worm, or have a trap crop of cab
bage stalks poisoned left in the gar
den or field. William Lomas in the
