Why the Fruit Falls to the Ground
When Half drown.
Every sonsnn In this western conn
try largo numbers ot plumi aro lost
by tho fruit falling to tho ground In
tho half-grown state. An examination
ot this fruit will show that It Is In
fested with whlto grubs, which eat
Into tho kernel nnd causa it to drop,
Tho work Is very similar to the plum
curculto, which Is such a serious pest
In tho eastern states.
This Insect, howevor, Is a''natlvo
western form nnd finds its way Into
our plum orchard from tho patches
of wild plums which grow along al
most ovcry creek.
It Is a very difficult Insect to com
bat, becauso the work Is done Inside
tho fruit, and poisons ennnot be ap
plied for tho larval forms of tho In
sect Tho adult Insect can sometimes
bo killed by spraying tho plum trees
with nrscnato ot lead or other poisons
of a similar naturo In tho tamo way
that npplo trees aro sprayed. Tho
adult beetles cat the young leaves or
cut off tho stems ot the young fruit.
nnd poisons placed in these localities
aro likely to provo helpful remedies.
Tho adult beotlos may bo caught by
Jarring tho trees. Tho Insect "plays
possum" when a limb is Jarrod and
drops to tho ground. If tho ground Is
covered with sheets, tho Insects may
bo gathered In them and destroyed.
This Is best dono early In tho day and
should bo contlnuod from tho tlmo tho
plum trees aro In blossom until tho
first of June.
Tho insects are reddish brown snoot
beetles about a quarter of an Inch In
length. Thoy aro qulto oaslly rccog'
nlzcd, and It present, somo will be
found usually each morning. A fow
Jarrlngs of the tree will Indicate
whether or not tho Insects aro nu
merous and whother this remedy
should bw continued. Probably this
remedy Is tho most usoful ono jln the
homo orchard pr gardon.
It is a good plan to permit chickens
to run around about tho trees, since
they often pick up tho wcovits or the
larvae that havo como to tho ground.
During tho summer all plums which
fall from the trees and even those
which show tho marks whllo they are
still on tho trees should bo taken and
destroyed. By destroying we mean
burning or somo other mothod which
will mako suro that tho Insect inside
tho plum is killed. S. Arthur Johnson,
Assoclato Professor of Entomology,

In every region ot tho United States
there Is nt least ono forest tree, and
generally thero aro several forest
trees which can bo planted with a
completo assuranco of commercial suc

government has mado a very careful
study ot most ot tho forest plantations
In tho United States. Its publications

on which they wero based were mado
especially for tho benefit ot farmers
and other land owners, nnd to prevent
the wasto of thousands of dollars an
nually lost by planting the wrong trees
or by Improper care of plantations.
From tho manner In which our nat
ural timber has been cut It Is clear
that each, region will have to bo made
as nearly self-supporting In timber
growth as possible Tho lesson of the
past is that tho right forest trees
