Some 15 years ago John E. Cnra

cover the office and affairs of the late

was in stone for the Krie railroad.
"What do you know about the Erie?"
WMpp-d the irrcat financier.

Severe Infestations In Central Missis.

(Prepared by the United States Depart

Energetic measures against the
chinch hugs which threaten injury not
only to the wheat and rye crops of
Missouri but to corn as well are
urged by the bureau of entomology.
United States Department of Agricul
ture, in view of reports of an impend
ing outbreak of the pest in that state.
Widespread and severe infestations
of the pes*! are reported in the whole
central Mississippi valley region,
starting in northern Texas and ex
tending in a northeasterly direction
over Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri,
touching Nebraska, and expending
across Illinois and Indiana into Mich
Generally Distributed Through State.
The chinch 1 ugs. latest advices say,
have hud a mild winter and are gen
erally distributed throughout the
Missouri wheat and rye fields, breed
ing in considerable numbers in the
St. Louis neighborhood early in May.
The farmers, it is said, hqve been
watching the pest more closely than
usual this spring, but all of them do
not know yet that there is danger that
their corn may be damaged worse
than normal last yeaf. Wheat is
likely to ripen one or two weeks
earlier this year, and the rains have
delayed the planting of corn
The bugs are certain to migrate
when the wheat ripens and the com
will be so backward that damage by
tlie hugs is likely to be very severe.
It fs well to expect the bugs to begin
migrating to corn as soon as the wheat
butts begin to harden into maturity
ten days before the heads are ripe.
Any harrier work or ereosov repellant
line work should begin as the hugs
will migrate in increasing numbers as

riers, therefore, must be maintained
from the time of migration until pos
sibly two or three weeks have elapsed.
Sow a Trap Crop.
It will be found of much value to
sow two drill widths of millet between
corn and the nearby fields of wheat
and rye. The more quickly this is
done the better, so as to make as good
growth as possible of this trap crop
before the bugs attack It. When the
bugs have migrated into the trap
crop it should be pl*wed seven or
more inches deep. Care must be
taken to plow deeply and well, then
to pack the ground with a drag or
harrow or roller. Little time or wort
is required to make ibis strip and the
cost rs small. It has hitherto been
found very profitable.
SEPARATE PENS FOR POULTRY
Not a Wise Plan to Keep Geese, Ducks,
Chickens and Turkeys Together
in Same Yard.
It pays to keep each variety of poul
try to itself. Ducks and geese will
foul a hen yard geese will drive away
all others at feeding time and hog
everything, while young turkeys may
be killed by hens and roosters. A
separate lot for each is best, and will
soon pay for itself in quicker growing
sti,.k. In addition, it is more conveni
ent to handle each when kept to itself.
Usually all that is necessary is an in
dividual feeding yard.

Pigs at eight or ten weeks of age

growth. With some kind of green for

While Canada wants settlers, and Is

keep undesirables out of the country
legislation is passed that will doubt

by the minister, the class of settlers
