WHEAT TOOK ROOT.
Singular Cause of a Tumor Which
YARDLEY, Pa., March 31. Surgeons
In cutting away a tumor from the
aheek of 5-ycar-oIJ Landsford Bcrger
found In the flesh a growing grain of
wheat, with numerous little sprouts.
The Jump caused by the development
of the cereal was the size of a hickory
nut, directly under one of the child's
yes. Two years ago a little swelling
was noticed, but no particular atten
tion was paid to It, as the lad was not
in great pain. It gradually enlarged
and become more troublesome, and a
few days ago the boy said It felt as
though something was moving Inn. le
the lump. His mother took him to ;he
Trenton Hospital, where the operation
"was performed. The wheat wag thriv
ing as well as It would in the earth.
The surgeons think the grain lodged
In the boy's right eye and worked its
way down from the socket Into the
Entomologist Tells of
He Brings Bugs to Prey on Other
Bugs That Hurt Hawaii's
Trees and Plants.
Professor Koebele, government en
tomologist, returned to Honolulu yes
terday morning from a trip of seven
months in search of parasites to kill
scales and insects that infest and de
stroy plants and trees. He went first
to Australia, then to FIJI, and later
back to Australia, where he spent most
of the time, and returned home by way
of Hongkong. He was sent by the Ha
waiian government to find the lady
bugs and other parasites that feed upon
certain scales that kill trees and plants
in these Islands, and he sent home to
Mr. Haughs of the government nursery
several hundreds of these creatur&s.
They arrived in good order, and were
promptly liberated to begin their work.
Besides these. Profesaor Koebeie
brought home a few Insects in bottles.
Un these he tried a curious experiment.
Wishing to know how long it la pos
sible to carry these little things and
keep them alive without food, be col
lected them on March 4, and brought
them all the way here without feeding
them at all, except during the last few
days, when he turned them louse on
some nee which were destroying plants
on the Nippon Maru. Most of them
survived the Journey.
This work which Professor Koebele
does is extremely Interesting, the more
so because it is not a matter which
can be learned from books. The pro
fessor has learned It for himself anu
wnile there are other men who have
made a long study of the tcience, prob
ably no one has had his wide exper
ience in travelling to various countries
and doing the actual work of collecting
the bugs. He has worked it up for him
Nineteen years ago he went to Cali
fornia and engaged in this sort of woik
Among other services of greit Impor
tance to the state he imported the
parasite (vedolia cardinal) which
killed the cottony cushion scale which
was destroying all the fruit trees, par
ticularly the orange trees. It threat
ened the fruit Industry of the state,
amounting to several millions a year.
Seven years ago he came here, and
since then he has been doing the same
service for Hawaii, except that his
work has been less hampered and bet
ter appreciated. When he first came
here the trees were black and bare of
leaves, and the sidewalks were slippery,
sometimes, from the beetles and other
Insects. The way to exterminate these
was to go to some other country where
they have tho?e creatures, study out
the parasite which feeds on them. Im
port the latter In adequate numbers,
and pet them at liberty In or near trees
thus infested. This he did wish great
bucccss, as the appearance of the city
Another pret threatened the coffee
trees on Hawaii, and was taken care of
in a similar way. Many years ago there
were quantities of roses in these Isl
ands. Japanese beetles came here and
killed them all. Then-a parasite was
imported which killed the beetle, and
now we have ro?es once more. There
will be plenty of beetles two or three
moatlui hence, but the parasite is
here, too, and as fast as the beetles
commence operations the parasites
will multiply and kill them off, so that
the roses will not suffer very greatly,
and the beetles will be constantly kept
down. A scale attacked the orange
trees here, and Professor Koebele Im
ported an insect that fed on the scale,
and now the orange trees once more
have a chance. In some parts of the
city one may still see them citing
away the blight.
They tried fiprayin? trees In Aus
tralia to get rid of a pe3t of the Insect
kind, with the worst results. The par
asites were there as well as the harm
ful Insects, and the poison killed all
the former, which are delicate, and
only a few of the latter, which are
hardy; and no amount of spraying
would kill all the pests. Tnree
months after they finished spraying
the peets were there again a bad a3
eer, and there wtrc no beneficial In
sects to combat them. It Is never nec-c.-s.iry,
as Professor Koebele remarked
ludt night, to interfere with nature or
to fight her. There is a beautiful bal
ance in nature, and when a pest rav
ages a country It means that the bal
ance is out and uee.ls to be restored.
It is necessary In these cases to help
nature to right the. balance, not to op
pose her. The pests which have come
to Hawaii, for example, arrived pre
sumably ia fruit, or plants, or mer
chandise, or seeds. The pests that in
fest trees and shrub3 elsewhere travel
ed with the seeds or cuttings and came
into active life whore they couid prey
upon their natural food. m The thing to
do was to import the parasite which
in other countries keep3 down this
pest, or blight, or scale , and put it
where It can find Its usual food. If it
should succeed In destroying the pest
entirely, it would perish for lack of
food; and In any case It would do no
harm, none of these lady bugs being
Injurious or predatory.
Massachusetts has been fighting the
gip?y moth for ten years, and has dur
ing that time spent hundreds of thou
sands of dollars and employed a large
force of men. It is now stated that It
will take several millions more to ex
terminate the moth. They can prob
ably keep on at this work for an lndefl
nite number of years without getting
any nearer the desired result; whereas
the sensible thing would be to send
some one to Europe, to the countries
which have the same pest and gather
and import the parasite which feeds
One of the Interesting features of
this work which Professor Koebele is
doing la that It has not yet been re
duced to an exact science, and what a
man can do In it depends upon iim
slf. Books on entomology there are
in plenty, but the first book on the
parasites which feed on the Insect pesta
of the world will not be finished for
many years to come. It is now being
prepared In Washington. Another in
teresting fact in the same connection
is that new pests are constantly ap
pearing, carried from one country to
another; and the work of hunting out
the parasites and conveying theiu to
me pian where they are needed Is
never ended. Moreover, there are
n.any pes;s of which the parasites tave
not yet been discovered, as, for In
stance, the cane-borer of Kauai and
Fiji, and the little Nile green jumping
insect which we have on thl3 Island.
Besides the lady bugs. Professor Koe
bele brought home with him some two
hundred plants of various epecies and
eeds for a quantity of valuable tim
ber trees. He hopes to remain in Ho
nolulu for some time. At present he
is staying with Mr. Haughs m the Gov
