THE SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE. NORTH PLATTE, NEBRA8KA. J- ( ;' SAN JOSE SCALE IS kh cgjtS.. TJjKS Gasoline Englno Sprayer. (By G. M. HKNTLRY.) Parnmount of all tho insects caua 3ng loss to tho horticulturists and nurserymen Is a small scalo Insect no largor, when mature, than tho head of a. common pin. This Insect la tho San Joso scalo (pronounced San Ho-zay), Aspldlotus pornlcloaua. No Insect yeat haa received more attention and Jiaa had more written concerning it. Nearly every experiment station in tho land has published ono or more "bulletins aa to ita life history and lavages, and remedies for its control. Newspapers, Journals and maga zines have issued volumes calling tho attention of fruit growers to tho ef fects of this scalo peat and oncour aging legislation for its control. Those who have heeded this admoni tion of the entomologista and fol lowed their recommendations have (satisfied themselves that In splto of tho enormous damage done by this scale, there aro methods which, If properly pursued, will reduce Injury to tho minimum. Tho careless, un heeding grower who has scale-Infested stock and has dono nothing by way of controlling tho peBt suffers heavy losses and eventually is compelled to .go out of business (bo ho horticul turist or nurseryman) or is advised to start anew. Perhaps tho worst feature of an at tack of San Jose scale is tho difficulty of recognizing tho insect, due to its size and color; it Is about 1-1G of an Inch iir. diameter when mature, and Jn color it resembles tho bark of tree or plant infested. If there is a very liad infestation an ashy-gray appear ance Is noticeable; again one may de termine tho presence of scalo by crushing many of them, when an oily appearance is noticed. If a female scalo be carefully turned over with a knife or a pin, there will bo found underneath a flat, yellowish insect, looking very much like a small piece of rich butter. It Las no logs, no wings, no eyes, no antennae (feelers), nor a distinct Adult Malo San Jose Scale. Jiead, but it does have a long, thread llko sucking proboscis, with which It iores through tho bark of trees into tho young, growing wood and draws out the sap. Early in tho spring the adult fe malo begins to give birth to living young, continuing to do so for about six weeks after which she dlos. Tho young scalo has legs, antennae and oyes, It moves about over tho twigs for some hours, then settles down and begins to push its mouth parts slow ly Into tho bark to tho sap beneath. BAD ROADS ARE EXPENSIVE TO FARMERS Good Roads Help In Every Way Being the Cost of Dad roads aro an extravagance that sio farming community can afford. Just what they cost in unnecessary ex pense it takes but a moment to deter mine. A team und driver la reasonably worth $3 a day, and by tho usj of theso it Is posalblo to deliver to Mar ket, from your homo, 100 buahels of corn. Hauling over good roads, tho cost of dollvory Is threo cents per bushel. But, if in consoquenco of bad r oasis but SO bushels can be delivered, WORST FRUIT PEST A scalo-llko covering now 'begins to be formed, coming from all partB of the body and looking at first like waxy filaments or threads, which later fuse together, making, with tho cast skins, an entiro covering over tho In sect. All young San Joso scalo look alike in size, color and shape until tho first molt, nbout twelve days' after birth, but from then on thoro la a very great difforonco. Tho male scalo, which is smaller, la now elon gate, whllo tho femalo scalo Is circu lar, or nearly so, both sexes 'losing legs and nntonnao, and tho femalo her eyes. In from 24 to 20 days from birth tho male comes from under tho Adult Female San Jose Scale. scalo in tho form of a mlnuto and extremely delicate two-winged, fly like Insect. It takes the female about thirty days to develop fully. From thirty threo to forty days from birth ''f gives birth to a new generation. Each femalo Is supposed to produce 200 male and 200 female young; this being so, and counting four genera tions in a senson, there will bo pro duced, according to Dr. L. O. Howard. 3,210,080,400 malo and femalo acales from one progenitor in a yenr. Thus It is easy to under stand why a slight Infestation, if untreated, soon becomes bad. If the scale are allowed to in crease unmolested they will kill a young bearing peach tree In about three years, and an apple tree In about four or flvo years. Consequent ly, when San Joso scale aro first dis covered in an orchard lmmediato preparations should bo mndo for ap plying a remedy, the most satisfac tory of which is the boiled lime-sulphur solution. Clean Feed for Horses. Don't feed dirty grain to youf horses. The dust, weed seeds and oth er foreign matter In tho grain Is in Jurloua. Uso a slevo to menauro the grain, and give It a few shakes to allow the dirt and aeeda to fall out before feed ing. Somo pour water over the grain in tho slevo, or dip the slevo of grain In a bucket or tub of water a few times. This Is a good plan as It re moves all dust and smut. Tho feed boxes are kept cleaner by treating tho grain in thiB way before feeding. Low Vitality of Hogs. Coarseness In hogs indlcatea low vi tality, sluggishness and slow feeding; qualities. Able to Haul Over Roads Reduces Delivery. the cost is doubled and tho difference Is what the Impassable roads coat you. Continue this calculation, applying it to the hauling of all of your crops and It quickly becomes apparent that it amounta to n vory burdensome tax. Good roads holp in every way, they promote sociability by making friends and relatives ncceEIble, and by moans of them it la easier to reach tho schools and churches, and to generally do and enjoy thoso thlngB which make life really worth living.

Thoro probably has never boon a man who looked upon $12,500 with quite tho samo emotions aa thoso which llllod tho breast of Michael J. Gill of St, Louis when ho saw Jh if fk ucFFrn and $3,500 In the bank. Thoy cleaned him out boform ho got through with his case. When a person contests a soat in the houao ho has to bring chnrgoa and sustain thorn before an election commltteo. Ho has to g-t witnesses and go over and over again all tho ragtag and bobtnll testlmoit?, stand up undor cross-examinations that had their origin in Gehenna, and pay for tho stenog rapher at tho samo time. Stenographers collect by tho word. One of Gill's witnesses made n statement which resulted In a cross examination which coat Gill Just $200. It wbb tho plainest refutation of that old Ho "talk la cheap" that you could find in a day'a Jo'Hrnoy. Talk "wasn't cheap to Gill, who would sit thoro and seo his $3,500 rnnnlng out llko tho sand in an hour glass. Ho had tho thing down so lino thfct ho know tho vory word which drained tho last cent from hla bank account and mado him mortgago his home. When that tragic word wbb spoken, Gill went out and got a Job. The Job wan in a glass works in or near Alexandria. Also hla son, Joo, wont out and hooked a Job playing a violin in a cheap theater. Joo la a natural musician, yet tho beBt ho could do was to snatch a dollar or two new and then. That's why many of tho men In the houso voted fnr GUI. Thoy know about tho glass works, tho mortgaged homo and tho boy playing at 60 cents a throw In moving picture theaters. That's why that $1S,GOO looked llko tho pot of gold at tho end of tho rainbow to tho older Gill. How a Western Senator "Ruined" Mis Silk Hat A WESTERN senator, who Is scnlng his first term In congress, camo to Washington well-informed upon matters of politics and of general inter est, but rather green when it came to questions of conventional attire. Ho visited a tailor and ordered a now out fit of clothes, which Included a full dross eult and a dinner coat, both of them articles of apparel which up to that time had never graced his figure. Tho tailor fixed him up with a proper outfit, advised him as to tho cut of tho vests and coats and told him that with tho full dross suit ho must wear a silk hat In the senator's homo town a high silk hat worn on tho main street would have cscitcd widespread com ment and probably would have served aa tho target for tho town marksmen. But renllzlng that ho must adapt himself to tho now conditions and must uphold his dignity as a senator, he proudly added tho hat to his wardrobe. At the next White House reception tho senator appeared In full regalia. Nono of tho deuco-spot statesmen from tho offoto East had anything on him when it came to comentlonal attlro. His coat was right, ho had tho proper kind of vest and his ready-made white tlo looked aa good as anyone's. Hut on his way homo he walked Instead of taking a cab it bogan to rain nnd before ho reached hla house his fine silk hat was a bedraggled and aorry looking affair. Tho next day ho stopped to tell tho tailor hla troubles. "Well. I ruined that fine allk hat last night," ho said. "I went to tho White Houso reception nnd on my way homo tho hat was entirely spoiled." "What happened to it?" asked the tailor. "It got wet," said the senator, "thoroughly drenched. It looka llko tho dickens and the fur la nil rubbed tho wrong way." "Woll, call up tho hatter and have him send after it and iron it out, and it will be all right," said the tailor. "Why, can it bo fixed up? It can? I thought If it got wot it was gone for good. Sure, I'll have it fixed, for I want to got ready for tho next recop Hon." And tho western atresman went away happy. Senator Kern of Indiana Loses His Pay Check SENATOR KEUN of Indiana the other day called at the offico of tho senate disbursing clerk, thern to cash his monthly pay-check. Ho reached into his right-hand, lower vest pocket, and tho check was not thoro. f$ 5&JiVE LOST Iudlanapolla, costing $C0, because I lost my safety vault koy out of this pockot," continued tho sorrowful Kern. "Then I lost $240 In bills nnd change out of it. Now my pay check almost $700 1b gone, too. "It'll teach mo a lqason, though. I'll buy a purao and havo a pocket for it mado in my underwear." Tho clerk broke in hero to assure tho disconsolate senator that payment on tho check could be stopped and a now vouchor Issued. Kern thanked him; tho vouchor was '.Bsucd and tho money pushed across tho countor. Tho senator pocketed it and wandered away. "Holy Moaea!" said tho disbursing clerk to his aBalatant. "Did you soo that'" "Sec what?" , "Whoro Senator Kern put all that money." ' "Whero'd ho put it?" "In hla right-hand, lower veat pockot," replied tho dlaburalng clerk Wilson Dodges Sleuths to Go on Shopping Trip SHORTLY nfter ton o'clock tho other morning a distinguished looking per son with a caro'ree expression camo out of tho Whlto Houao and stood for a moment on the portico at tho main ontranco. Ho was attired in a linon suit and carried n small bundle of papers undor his arm. Soon ho swung Into a briak wnlk toward tho east front gato, nodding pleasantly to thoao whom ho met on tho way. nny turned to watch him na ho strode along, probably bolng im pressed with tho air of freedom which ho aeomed to breathe and hla utter Independence. It waa. of course, tho president of tho United States. Hut where wero tho secret servlco guarda? Suddenly thoro waa sound of a commotion in tho vicinity of tho oxecutlvo offices. Two hualty men of tho secrot servlco ranks wero then accn mailing acrona tho lawn. Tho president quickened his paco, appeared to bo about to run, and then gnve up the raco. An tho men, out of breath, caught up witb "aim, ho said: "I camo very nonr getting away that time." Tho prosidont waa on: on a llttlo personally conducted shopping expedi tion Ho stopped at hla bank, Inquired about his balanco, Just na many nn other Amoricnn cltlm might do, and thon looked over somo summer clothing 'ii a drvtut'tan store v that amount chalkod up to his credit In the offico of tho sergoant-at-arma of tho house.

"I am deed fool onough to carry all my valuables in that pocket. Up to this time it has coat mo $300 to carry my money and keys there, and now it haa cost mo $1,000." "Wo can stop payment on this ch6ck " began tho clerk, but tho senator did not hear him. "I had to make a apeclal trip to 1 The Deity of f I l Christ Or REV. HOWARD W.

Prophecies ro tating to Christ which wero ut tered hundreds of years boforo hq was born. (Ps. 1G:9-11; 22;l, 8, IS; 08:18; Isaiah 7:14; 9:1-0; 40:. 0-11, 53 ) Theso, prophecies foro toll whern Christ should bo born, tho family of which ho Bhoultf bo born, tho way i n w h 1 o h ho should bo ro celvod (a way entirely dlfforont from what would bo oxpectcd), hla death and tho proclso manner of it, hla burial with all tho accompanying clrcuim Btnncos, hla resurrection, nsconalon, and final victory. II. Tho New Tostamont ascrlbeB to Christ dlvino titles which tho Old, Testamont applies to God (Hob. 1:8). "Hut of tho Son ho salth, 'Thy throno. O God, la forever nnd over.' " In John 20:28, Thomas anawerod and said un to him, "My Lord and my God," and Jesus did not robuko him. III. In Hob. 1:3, 10, tho creation of tho world la oucrlbod to ChrlBt. In Acta 20:28 wo havo tho oxproa8lon, "Tho church of God which ho hatli purchased with his own blood." IV. Jesus distinctly claims to bo equal with God, and to bo entitled to tho samo honor nnd adoration. Ho also assumes divlno nuthorlty and power. "I and tho Father aro ono" (John 10:30). "Hu that hath soon mo hath soon tho Father" (John 14:9). V. John 10:33 shows that Jesua Christ was put to death by tho Uni tarlaiiB of hla day. "Tho Jews an swered him, for a good work wo atono theo not, but for blasphomy; and be cause that thou, bolng a man, rankest thyself God." VI. Tho position which many tako that Jobus la almply a good man, but not divine, la untenable. Elihor ho wan what ho claimed to bo, or clso ho waa tho greatest impostor tho world haa over aeen. That ho waa not an Impostor la domonatratod by two things. First, hla resurrection from tho dead, which ia tho beat attoatod fact in hlatory. Secondly, that ho waa not an impostor la shown by tho ln lluenco which hla llfo und toachlngs Imvo had upon tho world, transforming tho Uvea of millions, mnklng bad men good, and good men bettor, converting drunkards and murderers and liber tines Into saints, and leading multi tudes out of idolatry and sin into tho light and liberty of tho gospol. VII. There aro somo who claim that Josus was thoroughly alncoro in all that ho said, but that ho was mlatnkeu and almply Imagined himaolf to bo the Son of God. They refer to what thoy call tho contradictions in hla testi mony, as for instance in his tcstl ho anya, "I and my Father aro ono," and in another place, "Tho Father Is greator than I." Thoy any that ho cannot bo ono with God nnd at tho samo tlmo Inferior to God. .A young man onco raised this objection in tho Inquiry room and tho preacher nald to him In reply, "Suppose thnt you had boon on enrth whon Jesus waa horo and had hoard him make theao contra dictory statements; and had asked him, saying, 'Master, I do not quito undoratand you. A llttlo whllo ago you said, "He that hath aeon mo hnth aeon tho Fnther," and now you say, "My Father Ib greater than I."'
