Prof. Brittoo's Lecture -Elm Tree Pests
Scrap ng Trees Value of Trees
Spraying Chickens The Chsed
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

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
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

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.
