There are two things that the rail road strikers are standing for that never can win : By their actions the assume to say "I will not work and you shall not." "We are willing to accept the find ings of the labor board when it raises our wages,, but will not submit when it reduces our wages." , . Every person, be he union sympa thizer or not, is bound to see that such a position will not be counten anced by the 'majority of the people. If the union element of the country : which is admitted not to exceed ten millions thinks it is reasonable or possible for that small minority of the one hundred and ten millions of people to control the other one hun dred million, they are doomed to dis appointment. If the railroad workers only could see it, they are doing the very worst .thing possible for their future inter set. Even now there are many thous and trucks hauling millions of tons of freicht. and nassenoer hnue nrp hauling many thousands of people that were formerly hauled by the' railroads. The present strike will do more to impress people with the necessity for more good roads than anything that has happedend for years. The more good roads the more trucks and pas senger busses and the less strikes will effect the people as a whole. Within teu years the number of men employed by railroads will be many thousands less than at present for the mofor buss will drive the railroads more and more to tlxe long haul, which means that fewer men will be needed ,io operate the trains. A .There never was a situation so bad i"J nal tne Public would not find a way f io remedy it. i'nis present tiniair and unreasonable strike is sure to drift' the public to a remedy that will utterly defeat the strike idea for all time. However, the fault is not all with the raihvorkers. 'Hie time will not be long in coming when paying a presi dent of a railroad $50,000 to $100,000 a year will have to stop, Also having from three to six vice presidents on huge salaries, along with a multitude of other relatives and friends on the pay roll who render little or no ser vice, but who are allowed to draw ' a handsome salary, and the public forced to foot the bill, will also have to cease. All the necessary remedies will come in time, but they will of necessity come slowly. "God riries and the government at Washington still lives." No one need fear the disolution of this government it has stood many hard shocks and is better able to stand today than ever before. True patriotism dwells in the hearts of the majority of our people , whether or not wc realize it. That i patriotism will assert itself when nec- cssity requires. j . ; i An eastern genus is said to be work- ; ing on an auto engine that will run aj car ,oo miles on a single gallon of1; gasoline. ) When he yets thit engine perfected ! and a "Tin Lizzie" ran be bought for a year's subscription to the Chronicle we intend to steal ;i half gallon of gas oline and try to swap for a car.

"Yes, dear, "fell me a fairy story before I go to bed. will vou? "Wait till your father comes home, dear, and he'll tell Us both one." Capt. Peck's Weekly Talks to Farmers By T. F. Peck, Commissioner of Agriculture THE MEXICAN BEAN BEETLE The following article on the Mex ican Bean Beetle has been prepared by G. M. Bentley, State Entomologist. Chief among the insect pests in Tennessee at present is the Mexican Bean Beetle. Dozens of letters with speciment are coming to the office of the State Entomologist, Knoxville, Tennessee, daily. If you have not done so, acquaint yourself with this most destructive pest and realize the heavy losses that fcave already been made, and probably greater devasta tion awaits the agricultural interests of the state from the injury of this insect than yet known. It is a mat ter of considerable alarm and every one should learn to recognize the beetle in its different stages and how best to control it. From the stand point of agriculture the pest may be even more serious than the boll weevil. The latter affects only one crop, where as the bean lady-bird beetle destroys the most essential crops of the South, as' peas and beans are grown iQr hu man food, for stock food, as forage, and are very necessary for soil im provement and the conservation of soil fertility. EASY TO RECOGNIZE The pres ence can best bo determined by ex amining the leaves of garden beans, lo hnd those with leaves eaten in irregular patches with the thin upper tissue of leafe entirely or partly covering those eaten areas of the leaf; or to find yellow and dry leaves with practically all of the body of leaf eaten, the fine net-work of leaf alone remaining, is the first thing to look for. Finding bean leaves thus in jured look beneath these leave.s More than likely you will find some stage lof 'the bean beetle. Finding yellow or copper colored lady-bird like beetles about one-fourth inch in length with 16 small dark dots upon their backs, you may feel reasonably sure that they are the adults of the Mexican Be?n B-:tle. To find bright yellow, soft and spiny-bodied insects from one-eighth to three-eighths inch in length feeding on under sur faces of bean leaves is almost posi tive evidence of the presence of the young beetles. Immediately report your finding and send in a tight, tin box some specimens to your State Entomologist, University of Tennes-, see Knoxville, Tennessee. HABITS The pest breeds rapidly and feeds voraciously. In 3 to 6 days it vvill ruin an entire crop. Its life history n the West confirmed by ob servations in Tennessee indicates that 4 weeks are required for its 1 or velopment from egg to adult. It pas ses the winter hidden away beneath rubbish, trash, leaves, stems, etc., in the adult stage to become active in March if food plants can be found. Eggs are laid in yellow masses con taining from 50 to -75 eggs in each. Occasionally we find a smaller egg mass. The female may deposit her eggs on the underside of bean leaves or on nearby growths. The young feed entirely on the underside of the hos: p'ants. WOW SPREAD Adults are strong fliers and by this means they infest new ;ircas The eggs, young or pupa, may be conveyed on fresh or dried host plants or 111 case ot pupa and e,Tgs they mav ne Ticauei cu iu mhj-m peel gworths taken near an infested .. t . i. 1 - host plant The bean beetle seems to nrefer the higher sections of the , state, although by no means do we CinH them alone in such sections.

It is sup posed to be a native of Mexico and first established in arid regions of the Western United States perhaps in Colorado. From Thence on alfalfa hay to Birmingham, Alabama, possibly in 1918, but certainly in 1919. In the summer of 1920 reports of the beetle were sent to Alabama Entomologist. In the spring of 1921, it was discov ered in Chattanooga section of Ten nessee. On June 2nd specimens were found 11 miles north of Chattanooga and by November it was located in 32 counties in Tennessee. A very care ful study of the dissemination of this pest in Tennessee was conducted by the United States Bureau of Ento mology, and the Tennessee Board of Entomology in co-operation. Since 1922 the spread has continued and to day it occurs in many new territories. Almost daily new areas are being ad ded. To complete this study of spread of the beetle in Tennessee you can render great assistance by sending in tight tin boxes specimens taken from any section of the state, to G. M. Bentley, State Entomologist, Knox ville, Tennessee. HOST PLANTS Among the food plants the Mexican Bean Beetle are all varieties of table beans, including cowpeas, shell beans, lima, or -butter beans and all kinds of field beans, soy beans, exceptions being taken on English peas and velvet beans. May occur and eat portions of many plants grown near to host plants. CONTROL Keep watch of bean plants finding a few bean beetles pres ent, destroy by hand picking the in sects or brushing them. Several plants infested should be treated by thoroughly dusting of under surfaces of host plants with one part calcium arsenate and nine parts hydrated lime well mixed. Never ue acid or ordi nary lead arsenate or Paris Green. The bean foliage is susceptible to ar senical injury. Where the infesta tion is serious only bufh varieties of beans should -be planted as they caii be dusted easier and they mature soon er. Where the infestation is light, however, pole beans can be success fully grown with a little care. There are several types of dusters on the market adapted to different condi tions, ror gardens or small acreages a hand duster is practical. A depend able and practical liquid spray at pres ent is not known, since basic lead arsenate and magnesium arsenate are de-!not commonly available, CLEAN CULTURE Leave no ac cumulation of weeds, grass, leaves or stems under which adults may pass winter.. CONCLUSION Look for the bean beetle and finding it act at once to control it. It is a matter of great im portant especially to the inhabitants of those states where the pest occurs, Colorado, Alabama, Tennessee, Geor gia, Kentucky, North and South Caro line. Its ability to spread rapidly and to completely destroy esseutialcrops also considering the fact that the host plants of this insect are generally grown and are of great importance for food and soil fertility, and also that the insect will survive a temperature utBi.va ...w. ...
