Owing to his fondness for flowers, Brothel Matthias has given especial attention to the pest known as the Japanese beetle, which preys upon the island roses. Hut for this pest Hawaii would blossom with every variety of lich and rare flower, and until lately all elTorts by housewives and others to cultivate roses in the islands have failed because of the Japanese beetle. About seven years ago a dead caterpillar with a pecu liar fungus growth enveloping it was brought to Brother Matthias for his examination. It had been found in Olaa by Prof. Koebcrle, and its appearance was the source of considerable speculation as to the cause of its death. With the aid of the microscope, Brother Matthias soon discovered in the fungus growth attaching to the caterpillar myriads of spores, or eggs, which were capable of reproducing a simi lar fungus substance. He made a series of experiments, among others upon the Japanese beetle, and his hopes were soon rea lized. I?or wherever the infintesi mal spores of the fungus came in contact with the beetle, or with the foliage upon which it fed, the beetle became infected, and he found that he soon had all the cultures he re quired iu the shape of dead beetles. With these as a start he instituted a vigorous campaign against the pest, and the scarcity of the insect attests to the wonderful work he has accomplished. l?or three years he daily inocu lated and let go thousands of Japa nese beetles, which iu turn spiead the disease, and beetles subsequently captured iu various parts of the isl and have shown evidences of the fungus growth. He was gteatly aided by John A. Scott, whose gar dener kept -Brother Matthias sup plied with quait pails full of fresh insects, which after inoculating he scattered broadcast or sent to other localities. Brother Matthias esti mates that over 200,000 Japanese beetles have thus been gathered and inoculated by himself and the pupils of St. Mary's School with the dis ease, which has rapidly spread to other beetles, until now hardly a beetle can be found without having signs of infection. He recommends, however, that the, work be carried on until the Japanese beetle exists no longer in the Hawaiian Islands. It is an in sect dangerous to many other plants besides flowers and roses, nnd is especially injurious to the cocao, or "koko" plant, experiments in the growing of which are now being made. Below is given the method adopted by Brother Matthias for securing his cultures and the inocu lation of the beetles, which he claims njiyoue can do: Take a box about a foot square and six inches deep and fdl iu about two-thirds with damp soil. Keep Ibis soil moist, not muddy, by occasionally sprinkling with water. Dry soil will not work. Place about two hundred beetles iu the box and more if the box be considerably larger. He careful to put only live beetles into the box, as dead beetles if sufficiently 1 for two or three tlavs will become diseased nud should then be liberated so ns to carry the infection n broad. Liberate the beetles in the evening simply by raising the lid. It is advisable, however, to retain some liccllcsench time that others nre liberated, so that the fungus supply may not be come exhausted. Dead beetles having developed the fungus may also he scat tered about plants that have been at tacked, or they may be mixed with the soil around those plants. Hectics placed in the box for the pur pose of inoculation will have to he fed, ns otherwise they will statve nnd cause cor ruption, beetles that die of the infection do not cause corruption. They nrc as it were embalmed by the fungus. to ruY uoi.r. Tom Mussnii Tolls hi Ladles Homo .Ion mill How 1o Tench n (Jlrl (loir. Select an abandoned links, and one that is as secluded as possible from the public eye. A links that is iu use is not at all the thing for your purpose; other players will interfere with your play, and when you are teaching a girl how to play golf there are so many fine points to the game that any interruption is distracting. Your choice of a girl must be carefully considered. It is a great mistake to suppose that any girl will do. Get one, if possible, about five feet five, with real golden hair, an alabaster complexion, rosebud lips and eyes with limpid depths the limpider the better. She should also have about a million dollars iu her own name, and be willing to learn. It is well to start out with two caddies iu the interests of good form. When on the first "tee" give the caddies one dollar apiece and tell them you are going to play slowly and will not need them. Now step upon the teeing ground and make a tec. The amount of sand you need will depend entirely uponthe kind of girl you have. Place the ball on the tee, instruct her to address it iu all the endear ing terms she knows just for the sake of practice and then try and send it as far away from a certain shady clump of trees as she can. After a few trials she will drive the ball just where you told her not to. The ball is now lost. Leaving your clubs lehiud you for hence forth they would only impede your progress you start out toward the trees to find it, in company with the girl. This is important. No matter how many balls are lost dur ing the game never lose ,sight of the girl. Select a spot that is as free from sunlight and the vulgar curiosity of a commonplace world as possible, put your arm around the girl's waist, and her head upon your i shoulder. Kxplain to her that this is mak ing an npproaph. Then leave the rest to the girl. Liaoyaug, Sept. 7.
