Trial Sprays for Apple Fruit Flies. The apple growers of Maine are familiar with the work of the apple maggot or railroad worm as it tunnels through the ! fruit and with the fact that these hatch from eggs laid by a banded winged fly. j Many orohardists have been interested in | the hope held out byT recent experimental spraying that it may be possible to poison ! off the flies and thus prevent the appear j ance of the maggots in the fruit. The two following methods have been reported to be successful means of con troling the apple maggot by poisoning the parent flies before they deposit eggs. They are offered by the Maine Agri cultural Experiment Station as suggest ions to owners of isolated orchards, who have been troubled by this pest. Any one who will test either method and re port results, w'here favorable or unfavor able will be contributing to an important subject. I. Soluble poison. Arsenate of soda (or arsenate of potash) 1 ounce Molasses (the stronger the better) 1 pint Water 4 gallons Dissolve the poison in a little hot water and mix with the water and molasses. This mixture will burn foliage a little. Apply it to scattered trees of the suscep tible varieties in the orchard. Use a hand spray outfit and on each tree sprayed only cover a place as large as an umbrella top. The slight foliage injury to so small an area does not interfere with tree growth. This amount of spray mixture is sufficient for four sprayings in an orchard of 20 acres. Time of application: The first spray should be made about July 15fh and the last about August loth. The number of applications necessary would depend upon the frequency of rain storms. II. Arsenate of lead: Formula: Arsenate of lead paste form, 2 pounds Water, 40 gallons Method of application: Through leaf spray such as is ordinarily practiced for | leaf feeding insects (caterpillars). Time of application: The first spray about July 15th and the second two weeks later. If a heavy rain follows the second spray it should be repeated, other wise two sprays are all that are neces sary. The theory of the first method is to have the poison serve as an attractive bait and thus only a partial spraying is required. The second method requires covering all the leaves of all the trees, so that wherever the fly feeds while in the orchard it will find poison. In case any one wishes to try the first method and cannot obtain the poison, this Station can supply a limited amount. It is very difficult to secure conclusive checks on such experiments as these both because of their nature and because so many factors are involved. For this reason this notice is given in the spirit of a suggestion for trial tests to such apple growers as may be interested, and is nof to be considered in the light of recom mendations based on conclusive date ap plicable to all localities and conditions. It may be said, however, that the first method has been tried by the Maine Agri cultural Experiment Station and the second by the Department of Agri culture, Province of Nova Scotia, ant that both gave, apparently, successful re sults. In each case orchards previouslj heavily infested, gave practically clear fruit after the sprays. CHAS. D. Woods, Director.

The recent changes in the Maine Supreme Court, the nomination of Leslie C. Cornish of this city to the chief justiceship and the nom ination of Albert M. Spear of Gardiner as associate justice, still leave the bench naif and half, politically. The four Democrats of the Supreme Court are Associate Justices George E. Bird of Portland, George F. Haley of Biddeford, George M. Hanson of Calais and John B. Madigan of Houlton. The four Republicans are Chief Justice-elect Leslie C. Cornish, Associate Justice elect Albert M. Spear, and Justices War ren C. Philbrook of Waterville and Arno W. King of Ellsworth. By the reappointment of Justice Spear, Kennebec county again has the distinc tion of having within its borders three of the eight members of the Supreme Court. By a singular circumstance both Mr. Cornish and Mr. Spear will retire from the bench about the same time, if they should decide to take advantage of the pension provision. Justice Cornish will complete his third term in March, 1921, and will be 70 years of age in 1924, so this | will enable him to complete about half of his fourth term before he retires. This is the third time in the history of the State that Kennebec county has had the honor of providing the head of the Supreme Court of Maine, Nhthan Wes ton, William P. Whitehouse and Leslie C. Cornish, and once the honor of pro viding the head of the United States Su preme Court, Melville Weston Fuller. Maine Man “Walks 75 Miles to Enter Army. Bangor, Me., June 23. Henry Me- j Neil, a lumberjack, presented himself at | recruiting headquarters today and said that he had walked 75 miles to enlist in the Canadian Army because he wanted to take the place of his brother, who had lost a leg in the trenches. He was en rolled in the Kilties batallion by Sergt. Leonard. four U. S. Wooden Ships to be Built in Portland. The Portland Ship Ceiling Company has been notified that its contract for four wooden ship hulls, which had been approved by the State Shipbuilding Com mission, had been signed by Gen. Goe thals. The price is approximately $300, 000 for each hull. The work will be done there and will start immediately. Two Maine Boys Drown When Canoe Upsets. MACHIAS, Me. Stillman Berry, aged 17 years, and Harry Bagley, a lti-years old companion, were drowned when their canoe upset in the east branch of the Machias river. A third man, Percy Kil ton, managed to reach shore. Berry and Bagley were employed as assistant cooks under Kilton at the lumber camp of Tal bot Brothers. ] Logging on Merrymeeting Bay. There were 14,000 of those big sticks of pulpwood that came down from Rumford Falls during the freshet. They passed Pejepscot on the Androscoggin’s ten foot flood at 10:15 that night and most of them reached Merrymeeting Bay Tuesday. The owners of the logs engaged all the help they could find in Brunswick and Bath to corral the runaway sticks, but thousands have gone to sea. One North Bath fisherman made $40 hauling in 160 logs at 25 cents apiece. One bifnch of these logs was roped to gether and coming down the tide like a racehorse. He managed to make fast to the bunch and succeeded in slanting the raft in to the shore. A Bath man in a dory worked until an hour after darkness came on landing pulp wood logs from the river and piling them up at the ferry landing. Capt. Perkins of the Virginia reports that just before day-' light Tuesday morning thousands of logs passed Popham at the mouth of the Ken nebec and went to sea. In Merrymeeting the waters were crowded all day Tuesday with pulp wood that had come down on the Androscoggin’s flood and men were busy rescuing what they could.—Bath In dependent. Yacht Isabel is Fast. Bath, June 27. The million dollar yacht Isabel, built after the style of a tor pedo boat destroyer and turned over to the government by John N. Willys of Toledo, made 28.4 knots an hour on her trial trip yesterday, or 2.4 knots in excess of contract, it was announced today at the Bath Iron Works. Yacht Katrina in Patrol. The seventy-foot Lawley built steam yacht Katrina, owned by Mrs. Thomas Ewing, who spends her summers at Sor rento, has been turned over to the Gov ernment for service in the First Naval District. The Katrina is one of the well known yachts along this coast and will undoubtedly prove a valuable boat in the patrol fleet. 7 Diseased Fruit Trees Burned. Mr. Dudley, our State Horticulturist, has condemned and burned 4000 fruit trees which were from John H. and P. T. Reilly, Dansville, N. Y. It is not known how many have been consigned to dif ferent parts of the State, but inspectors are busily engaged in tracing all ship ments. Milo Man Shot. MILO, Me., June 27. Oscar Mayo of this town was shot and killed today as he stood with his 12-years-old son in an open field on his farm. The identity of his slayer is unknown and the authori ties have been unable to determine whether the shooting was deliberate or whether a hunter mistook Mayo for a deer. The boy said that two shots were fired, the first of which whistled past his head At the second shot his father fell dead with a bullet in his heart. Clip This and Pin On Wife’ Dresser Cincinnati Man Tells How to Shrivel Up Corns or Callouses so They Lift Oft With Fingers. Ouch !?!?!! This kind of rough talk will be heard less here in town if people troubled with corns will follow th * simple ad vice of this Cincinnati authority, who claims that a few drt ps of a drug called freezone when applied to a tender, aching corn or hard ened callous stops soreness at once, and soon the corn or callous dries up and lifts right off without pain He Bays freezone dries immediately and never inflames or even irritates the surround ing skin. A stnali bottle of freezone will cost very little at any drug store, but will positive ly remove every hard or soft corn and callous from one’s feet. Millions of American women will welcome this announcement since the in auguration of the high heels. If your druggist doesn’t have freezone tell him to order a small bottle for you. Cultivate Your Com.' Cultivate as soon after rains as the soil has dried sufficiently. Keep the soil sur face well stirred and light. This will let rain soak in quickly and reduce waste. In fair weather it will prevent the subsoil from drying out. A well-stirred surface soil will send moisture, laden with plant food, up through the corn roots and stalks to make ears. Every weed in a cornfield is an enemy. Weeds drink up moisture and consume plant food that should go to make corn kernels instead of weed seeds. Destroy your weed enemies when they begin to appear. Don’t wait for them to mobilize in strength. Attack weeds if possible in fair weather. You will then have the sun as a powerful ally. Evapo ration of moisture lowers temperature. A wet, evaporating soil surface, there fore, is cold. A dry soil surface is warm. A loose soil surface dries quickly. The blan ket of loose, dry soil then stops further evaporation. It drinks in sunshine and becomes warm. In northern localities and at high altitudes the warming of the soil frequently is as important as conser vation of moisture. The condition of your soil should determine when to culti vate. Cultivation by a hard and fast rule may do more harm than good. Don’t let cracks form. They are holes through which valuable moisture escapes. Don’t cultivate when your ground is wet enough to form clods. Clods tie up plant food so that the corn roots can not use it. Don’t waste cultivation. Cultivation may be a waste of time or may be actually injurious when your soil is in good condition— moist below, dry and light on the sur face, free from weeds. Failure to culti vate promptly and prevent the soil from becoming cracked, hard, or weedy may mean a material lessening of your corn yield. While the plants are small cultivate as deeply as the condition of the soil makes necessary. Deep cultivation then is de sirable if your seed bed was not well prepared before planting. Who would attempt to grow good corn in a small flower pot? Remember that hard ground can confine roots as effectually as pot tery. Get your soil into open condition so that the corn roots can reach out for food. After the plants become a foot high shallow cultivation only should be given. The roots have then spread out close under the surface of the soil and would be injured by deep cultivation. Never cultivate deeply close to corn plants after they are a foot high. Such cultivation will break feeding roots and cause injury to the plants.—U. S. De partment of Agriculture. Safety First with Cough and Cold.

Mighty forces are marshalling, great stores of food and munitions are being gathered, and the energies of the the nation are focused on problems incident to the war. At the very beginning of the war, the whole Bell System was placed at the disposal of the Government. No nation has entered the war with such a comprehensive and efficient telephone service. as our military establishment grows, the demands of the Govern ment upon the Bell System are bound to increase and always they must take precedence over all others. Increased activity in commerce and industry as the. result of larger demands for food and munitions from our allies and for our own use means more need of telephone service by private business. But private business must always be subordinated to the Government service. Each individual American will co-operate in this patriotic service aud submitcheerfufly to inconvenience or delay in his telephone service’ when he understands how vital it is that Government service shall take precedence over all else, NEW ENGLAND TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH COMPANY ___ _ E.
