Information following, which is sent

of agriculture, will be of much aid

The homo gardener must count al
most Inevitably upon the presence In
his garden of plant discuses and
pests, Bays a new Farmers' llulletln
No. 818. "The Small Vegetable Gar
den." It Is pointed out that if these

It lu hard for somo gardeners to
reallzo the importance of making
early provision to combat these ene
mies of plant life. It can not bo too
strongly emphasized, however, that
-turn provision is of equal Importance
ll h other phases of gardening and
i 'hat It should under no circumstances
j lio neglected. The wise gardener
: does, not wait for tho appearance of
1 Insects and diseases, hut takos steps
I to combat them by spraying the
1 plants at reasonable Intervals from
early spring until his crops have been
i harvested, or by other protective
I measures. He thus Insures himself
I igalnnl the likelihood of loss.
' Tho necessary Implements and ma
terials for protecting the home gar
den ngalnst insects and diseases
1 should be assembled early In the sea
son. Tlioso consist of a substantial
; hand sprayer and the necessary con
centrated solutions, which, after dl-
: lutlon with water, are to be sprayed
1 011 tho plants.
I The diseases which affect garden
plants may be divided Into two
1 groups, parusltio maladlos, such as
'the blights, ore caused by fungi or
germs, and usually may be prevented
or controlled by spraying with nor
doaux mixture. I-lttle Is known, how-
over, of tho so-called constitutional
dlsoaaos, and little can be done to
nrovent thulr ravugos. If some mal
ndy which doos not yield to treatment
with liordeiiux mixture manlfosts
Itsolf on Isolated plants lu the gar
don, It may be well to pull up these
ntants and burn them.
Tho Insects which attack garden
plants may be divided Into two groups
those which eat or chow llie irun
or follane and tlioso which suck the
plant Juices. Eating Insocts may be
killed nsuully by spraying poisonous
solutions or dusting powders on the
..i..ni. urliloh thov attack. Arsenate
of load Is the poison Id most general
use for this purpose. This substance
Is poisonous to persona as well aa to
Insocts and must be used with care.
It Bhould not be applied to vegetables
thut are to be used soon. All vege
tables should be washed carefully be
fore they are eaten, regardless of
whether they have been sprayed.
Most of the garden plants may be
guarded against disease and at the
same time protected from attack by
outing Insects by spraying at Intervals
it two weeks with a combination of
llordeaux mixture and arsenate of
Other methods of protecting plants
from the larger eating insects are to
lick the pints by hand or knock them
A-lth a stick Into a pan containing
water on which a thin film of kero
leno Is floating. Insects collected by
land should be destroyed promptly.
Voung plants may be protected by
sotting over them wooden frames
'.evered with mosquito netting, wire
mesh or cheesecloth. Cutworms may

niper collars into the ground around
Sucking Insects, such as plant lice,
an not be killed by poisoning the
mrface of the leaves and fruit, since
.hey feed by puncturing the plants
.nd extracting the internal Juices.
Poisons which will kill by contact or
luhstnncea which envelop and
imother the pests are, therefore, em
iloyed against the sucking Insects.
Tho principal remedies of this sort
ire nicotine solutions, flsh-oll and
j Hi or sonp solutions, and kerosene
The gardener should remember
that many plant diseases and Insects
ixlst In the garden from year to year.
U tho end of the growing season,
horoforo, the garden Bhould be care
ully cleaned of rubbish, the stems of
iilants. leuves, etc. It is necessary to
urn this debris promptly, as any
disease spores or Insects which may
be present are then surely destroyed.
BEAN AND PEA VEEVIL

Hole Need Treatment.
Deans and peas stored for seed,
showing large round holes In the
-tides, are Infested with weevils and
need fumigation with carbon blsulfld
gas before being planted, says A. L.
Lovett, entomologist of the O. A. C.
"The adult weevil Is e small, olive
drub beetle that appears In the field
ut blossoming time and deposits eggs
jlotig the keel of the developing pods.
The eggs hatch into grubs that enter
mil feed on tho muturlng seeds In
which they are still present when the
seed Is stored."
Carbon blsulfld fumigation Is the
standard treatment. The tin or con
tainer In which the seeds are stored
is made as nearly gas proof as pos
sible. For each 15 bushels of seed,
one pound of carbon blsulfld Is used.
It may be poured over the seeds or
placed In shallow tanys above them.
The blu should be securely closed for
24 hours, then opened and thorough
ly aired. i
Caution should bo used In handling'
the carbon blsulfld, cs It is very In-1
flummable. Do not open noar a hot !
move or use a light or smoko while ;
treating tho seed. j
Anothor treatment for the weevil
Is to pour the seed Into a vessel of ;
lolling water. Before doing this have:
ieady for Instant use a supply of cold
water which must immediately be
(dded to the water containing the
sends. The infested socds will float
and may be skimmed oft. This treat
ment Is advisable only when the
seeds can be planted at once.
Neither of the treatments, should
injure the vitality of the seed.
When brought to our store, will be accurately and
carefully filled and none but the best of drugs used.
So both you and he will feel perfectly safe.
