Prof. Brittoo's Lecture -Elm Tree Pests Scrap ng Trees Value of Trees Spraying Chickens The Chsed School Pemnal. A good sized audience assembled at the library lecture room last evening to listen to a lecture by Prof. Britton, of New Haven, upon the care and pre servation of the shade trees of the town. It was profusely illustrated wi.h lantern slides. A few of those present included Mr. and Mrs. Huntington, Dr. Donaldson. Mr. John Mills. Rev. Dr. Child, Rev. Allen Beeman, Miss Kip pen, Miss Bessie Bette. Mr. Charles Jennings and others. Mr. Benjamin Betts. president of the Vil'age Im provement society, in introducing Prof. Britton spoke of a trip he had made into some of the far western states, and through some of the Southern states, where he saw villages and large towns without a single tree, and how glad he was to get back to the New England paradise of Fairfield with its beautiful trees, its well kept lawns, its neat sidewalks, etc. Prof. Britton agreed with Mr. Betts that shade trees add rluch to the beauty and value of a vil'age and its homes. He said that a census had been taken of the shade trees of Hartford and it wa3 found that city has over 7,000 which are estimated to be worth $15 each. Ha thought this too low an estimate, and asked what would Hart ford be without its trees. He said there are over 17,000 trees in New Ha ven which he considered to be worth one million of dollars. He threw upon the screen a picture of Temple street as it was 40 years ago. when it was lined with magnificent elms which made a perfect gothic arch the whole length of the street, and then save a picture as the street is to-day. rbb3d of its beauty and almost bare of trees. He said the people of that city are waking up to the necessity of do'ng something to preserve the anc ent beauty and renown of the town as th'j Eim City. He then went into the dif ferent causes which destroy trees, showing how they are improperly pruned: how the leakage from gas mains: the cutting and mutilating by telephone and telegraph companies, and the injury to the bark by horses, all help to ruin trees. He stated that 33 per cent, of the trees in New Haven had been injured by horses prnawins the bark, and sad there is a law th it if any one leaves a horse where he can injure a shade tree, he is subject to a fine of not less than $j; but. he added, the law is not enforced and the policeman never sees an injury done by a horse. The various methods of preserving trees by filling envities with Portland cement were U'ustrated and also the appliances for the protection of the trunks of trees. Comin; to the elm tree and its enemies. Prof. Britton skl he was sorry to see that in some pieces, as in the pub'ie square at Nor walk. much time and money had been spent scraping the trunks of elm trees smooth, under the mistaken notion that by so doing the worm of the e m tree beetle would be destreyd. He said the worm which comes from tho eggs of the elm tree beetle had des cended in the fall, from the foliage of the tree, and that the papuae from the eggs could be found at the foot of th tree, and then was the best time to destroy them. The moth hybernates in all sorts of places, and flies up into the tops of the trees and it is a waste of time to scrape the trunks. A good deal of this work has recently been done in Fairfield. Spraying the trees with an arsenical mixture was his sovereign remedy, and he said there were firms in Massachusetts who would take the contract to do the spraying for from $1 to 2 a tree, according to the number. The town of Saybrook has decided to have its shade trees sprayed in this manner. The best way is for a man to use a hand pump and go into the tree and sorav the nnder- ! side of the foliage. If a tree is at I tacked by the beetle for three succes- " - " - ovrovii. it. is (Uiiiubl sure lo KJli it. Prof. Britton considers the coming summer will decide the fate of many trees: that the crisis will be reached, and work must be done In May or June to head off the beetle and its progeny. . A large part of the lecture was de voted to an exposition of the various pests which destroy both shade and fruit trees. The elm tree beetle, the gypsy moth, the brown tail moth, canker worms, caterpillars, the San Jose scale, and other insects were de scribed and many graphic and dis couraging views thrown upon the screen. Some of these pests have been imported from Europe, and recently Prof. Britton found 50 specimens of dangerous Insects on nursery stock 'm ported into this state from France. The brown tailed moth has cost the state of Massachusetts no less than two million of dollars in its efforts at extermination. This can only be dine by saturating the nests of eggs with creosote oil, and these have to be searched out on every tree by climb ing onto the limbs and going over the tree carefully. It was ev'dent from the import of the lecture that many shade ana rruit trees are m danger and ; those who would preserve them must i be up and doing. After the lecture a I vote of thanks was tendered Prof .Britton. Last evening Mr. Wil'iam O. Burr of this place read a paper on "Chick ens and How to Got Them." Mr. Burr is a member of the Greenfield Hill Farmer's Institute, takes a deep in terest in the annual fair held by the Farmer's club, and is a member of the School Board. He has made a special ty of poultry for some vears, and usually takes premiums at the poultry shows as well as at the fairs. Som' gentlemen think they can eret chicke 's i just as well from an incubator as from j the mother hen. but as Prof. Stonebu'-n of Storr's college said, when in town not long since, he preferred th s in I cubator. since one cannot always con j trol a hen. But incubators have their ; disadvantage, if they are run w'th an oil lamp. Two gentlemen in th's town have lost their chickens by the ex I plosion of the lamp, or the overheating ' of the room. Prof. Stoneburn wou'd feed the chickens red or white c'-over and he would fasten a mangel wyrzsl beet against the wall just high enough for the hens and chickens to pick at. In a short time they wou'd eat but the whole inside. He would use com mercial food for the feeding of young ch'cks, but would not give them any th'ng to eat the first 4S hours. Let them have all the sour milk they want and keep them out of a draft. Like everything else chickens must be care fully looked after. Supt. Wheatley of this town has ex plained the situation to the parents of the West Long Lots school, and why the School Board of Westport thought it best to close the school. It was stated that there are living within one mile of the school house 50 children". 30 of whom are under 11 years of age. It was finally agreed that if there are 20 children under 11 years of age who will go to the school, it may be reopened. Mrs. W. S. Merwin is reported to be quite 111. Mr. Stephen Jennings is said to be improving in health. He suffered a slight shock a few days ago. Mr. William A. Smith, an old resi dent of Greenfield Hill, is quite ill a th2 home of his daughter. Mr. Ervin Nichols has found em ployment in Seymour. Conn. Mrs. A. D. Penny is visiting her daughter in Bridgeport. Prof. Harvey Swan of the Hargrove school leaves to-day for his home In Salem. Mass.. where he will spend his spring vacation. The book committee of the library held a meeting this afternoon to de cide what new books shall be pur chased for the coming month. Mr. Frank Deitschman. former'y gardener for Mr. H. C. Sturges, with his family leaves town to-day for other fields of usefulness.
