111- for some time. It was built sev
nty-two years ago by Captain James!
1 eazlev, on Suift Run River, and for

Johnson's Camp, or Ambulance, Car
The above picture shows Norman H.
John .son's automobile, converted Into!
:? ramp or ambulance car, the arrange
ment being the result o/ a littl? |
thought by Mr. Johnson. The idea oc- I
cur red to him last Hummer wheri ho
whs planning a camping trip. Mr.
Johnson worked over several designs i
and finally converted bis auto into a
"camp car," which makes a tent un
necessary for camping.
The problem of cutting the seat
without weakening the tonneau was
overcome by placing a post at either
und of the seat, and also a post at
either end of the tonneau. This was
done without defacing the car by us
ing metal beading.
To provide a lock that would hold
the seat up without rattle or looseness,
two locks are used at either end of
the seat, and are somewhat similar to
the locks used on an upper berth on a
Pullman car. The seat when turned I
back rests on two rubber tip stand
ards which fold down when the seat i
is up. The sent can be let down in ?
less than thirty seconds.
The upholstery in automobiles In
equal to a hair mattress on springs.
It provides all the comfort possible,
and will accommodate two persons
comfortably, as the width of the car
Is about three-quarter-bed size.
Mosquito net curtains are also a ,
part of this equipment. These are :
folded up in the interior of the regu
lar curtains, and consequently the oc- I
cupants are protected in all kinds of
weather.
A trunk running the entire length
of the running board and divided into
Ave compartments is another part of
the equipment.
AS TO RED CEDAR TREES;

The tenth annual report of the Stute
ICntomologist and Plant Pathologist, by
W. J. Schoene, Virginia Polytechnic In
stitute. has Just been issued und is now
being sent out.
Tho report should he of special in
terest to fruit-growers, nurserymen and
farmers generally. Besides a general
statement of the work of tho State in
tomoloKist it publishes the results of
"Inspection of Virginia-Grown Nursery
Stock at I'olnts of Delivery," and "In
spection at Destination of Stock Ship
ped Into Virginia During 1014-'15,"
giving the number of shipments in
spected, amount of stock and stock con- j
demned. mentioning the diseases and ,
insects on the. trees which made them
untit for planting.
The report presents a somewhat ex
haustive discussion of the present cedar |
rust law, giving the results of a case '
In the Circuit Court at Winchester, ;
which resulted In a victory for the
fruit growers. The law was modelled ?
after certain sections of the Virginia
crop pest law, and was intended only i
as an emergency measure. It is local
option in character, and is not effective
in any county until adopted by the su- J
pervisors. The act by the General j
Assembly makes It unlawful to keep j
red cedars within two miles of apple J
orchards.
