Practice of Fall Plowing and Burning
All Rubbish Will Lessen Num
ber of Harmful Bugs.
It ls much easier to ward off an
attack of Insects or to make condi
tions unfavorable for their multiplica
tion than to destroy them after they
are once in possession. Certain meth
ods of control have long been recog
nized among farmers and horticultur
Control by cultural methods must
come first, for Insecticides can only
stop an injury already begun. Insects
thrive on neglect, multiply most rap
idly in land seldom or never cultivat
ed, and winter over in rubbish, prim
ings or the undisturbed soil where
they get their food. It is the neglect
ed farm, vineyard or orchard, filled
with weeds or wild growth, which is
certain to contain the greatest stock
of insect enemies.
Thorough and constant culture, with
the removal and buming of rubbish,
diseased fruit, etc., with the practice
of fall plowing, will almost certainly
lessen the number of destructive in
sects. Constant cropping of large
areas of lend year after year to the
same etaple is largely responsible for
the excessive loss from insects in this
country as compared with Europe. A
most valuable cultural plan, therefore,
is a system of rotation of crops.
Plant All Trees In Straight and Even
Rows-Wire Netting Affords Pro
tection From Vermin.
The fruit garden may be adjoining
the vegetable garden, but should not
be a part of it.
Plant all trees in straight, even
rows. Standard apple trees 40 feet
apart each way.
Standard pears 25 feet apart each
way. Peaches and plums and morello
cherries 20 feet apart each way. A
peach or sour cherry tree may be
planted in between the rows of ap
ples, as the apples will not shade
these trees for six or eight years.
After planting two-year-old :rees,
stake and tie the trees to the stakes.
To prevent injury to the trees, it is
well to run a piece of wire netting
wound each tree and tie it securely to
the stakes. The wire netting should
be four feet in height. This will af
ford protection from vermin and also
from careless cultivation.
Low-growing vegetables may be
planted in between the rows of trees.
Give thorough culture throughout the
season. No grass or weeds should
be allowed to grow around the trees.
Keep the ground mellow.
Automatic Machine Shown In Illustra
tion Designed Especially for the
Smaller Orchards.
Spraying becomes more popular
every year, not only for apples,
peaches, and other orchard fruit, but
for potatoes, garden and even field
crops as the farming business comes
to recognize the value of fighting
pests that cut off the profits. For the
one-man orchardist and gardener the
Spraying Machine.
automatic spraying machine shown in
the illustration is especially designed,
though the automatic idea will likely
be seen soon on larger sprayers. As
the sprayer is wheeled along it auto
matically pumps the material to be
sprayed through the hose line, and the
man wheeling the machine along like
a wheelbarrow can pass around a tree
or bush, spraying it as he trundles the
Weil-Known Spray.
Some people have been looking for
a better and cheaper spray than ar
senate of lead and have been trying
arsenate of zinc It is advisable to go
a little slow In this matter because so
far arsenate of zinc has been found
to be much more dangerous to iota
fruit and foliage and also fully as
costly. Arsenate of lead has been
used for a long time, for its strength
and character is known to practically
Frost Protection Pays.
Does frost protection pay? Judging
by the experience of the citrus fruit
growers in California, it seems quite
apparent that it does, that it is one of
the greatest factors in assuring a fruit
crop, and that while the expense of
equipping an orchard is considerable,
lt pays dividends that are almost fab
Orchard ?s Neglected.
Many good farmers will keep every
thing on the place in ship shape al)
the ye?? except the orchard. These
men are a'. unis ....ag that, if

Vegetable Soup as ft Should Be Made
for the Best Results-Potato That
Will Be Attractive to the
Vegetable Soup.-Take one large po
tato or two small ones, one carrot and
one turnip of medium stae, and on?
small onion; wash, pare and slice
them, and let them boll for one hour in
one quart of water, adding parsley 01
any herb preferred for flavoring, and
more water as lt boils away, so that
there will be a quart when done.
Thicken with a spoonful of flour 01
cornstarch, dissolved in a little cold
water; or a spoonful of rice or any
coarse cereal may be added when the
vegetables are half cooked. Strain off
the liquid, season to taste, and add a
few spoonfuls of sweet cream. If a
dish a little more substantial is de
sired, the vegetables may be rubbed
through the strainer also and mixed
with the liquid.
Bread Panada.-Toast slowly several
slices of stale light bread, until they
are a golden brown all through. Pile
them in a bowl, sprinkling each one
with a little sugar and a pinch of salt;
then cover with boiling water, close
tightly, set the bowl in a pan of boil
ing water and let simmer gently until
the bread is like Jelly. Serve warm,
with sugar and cream and a grating of
- Potato foran Invalid*-Where potato
is allowed, select such as will boll up
dry and mealy. Peel them and boil un
til well done, then mash very thor
oughly with a wire masher until per
fectly free from lumps. Add rather
more salt tinn usual and several
spoonfuls of thick, sweet cream; then
beat until perfectly smooth and light,
and serve at once. Potato served in
this way is delicious and much more
easily digested by a weak stomach
theta when eaten with butter.
Fruit Toast-Fruit toasts are de
licious and appetizing and may be
made either with fresh or canned
fruit. Dip the slices of toast in the hot
juice, removing them quickly to a hot
dish, tUen thicken the juice slightly
with cornstarch, adding the pulp,
rubbed through a sieve or finely
chopped, ar d pour all over the toast.
Fruit Whip.-A nourishing way of
serving fruit, either fresh or canned,
is to press it through a sieve or wire
gravy strainer and then stir it Into
whipped cream, regulating the amount
of fruit as desired and sweetening to
Egg Souflle Toast.-Place a slice of
toast on a white enameled plate,
spread with fresh butter or very thick
syeet cream, heap'on top the stiffly
whipped white of an egg, hollowing
out the top to form a nest In this
place the yolk. Set In the oven to
cook the egg lightly.
Oyster Pate.
One pint oysters, one tablespoonful
each butter and flour, one cupful
cream, cayenne, grated nutmeg, yolk
of one egg, chopped parsley. Line a
shallow baking dish with rich crust.
Make sauce of butter, flour, cream,
sauce, and when heated through whip
in the well-beaten egg yolk. At once
pour into the pastry crust (previously
baked) and heat in oven about eight
minutes. The crust can be molded
over inverted muffin cups or made in
the regular baking dish lined with
paste, and even covered with a second
crust is most attractive.
Economical Cake.
The most surprising of cakes can
he produced without eggs or butter.
To a teaspoonful of bicarbonate of
soda dissolved in a teaspoonful of
warm water add a cupful of sour milk,
three-quarters of a cupful of brown
sugar and a half a cupful of treacle.
See that the sugar is well dissolved,
and then add two cupfuls of brown
flour, a good pinch of ginger and a
teaspoonful of cinnamon. Beat to
smoothness, and pour in while stir
ring a quarter of a pound of floured
raisins-less can be used. Bake in a
slow oven for a good hour. This cake
is economical, and will keep a long
time, but it is better not to cut it
for a day or two.
Manhattan Pudding.
Mix together the juice of three or
anges, a lemon and a half cupful of
sugar; let stand several hours. Whip
a cupful of heavy cream, add a half
cupful of powdered sugar and a cup
ful of chopped nuts or candied fruit.
Rub a mold sparingly with olive oil,
pour in the fruit juices, spread with
the whipped cream mixture and cover
with paraffin paper, put on the lid and
bury in ice and salt for three hours.
Serve garnished with sections of or
ange which have stood over night in
a thick sirup of sugar and water.
Scrambled Eggs With Asparagus Tops.
Melt three ounces of butter in a
saucepan, break into it six fresh eggs ;
season with a pinch of salt, half a
pinch of pepper and a third of a pinch
of grated nutmeg. Mix thoroughly
without stopping for three minutes,
using a spatula and having the pan
cm a very hot stove. Add a quarter
of a bunch of freshly boiled asparagus
Apple Float.
When making apple float, try bak
ing the apples instead ot stewing them.
The pulp is removed from the skins
and nixed with tho whites ot the egg
which makes the float much ltghtei
than the old way.
