Usually due to the unfavorable effects

practically Independent of rit action 1

with lime whitewash la I on account of

moil promlilng method of winter pro

whitened buds remained practically
dormant until April while unprotected
buds swelled perceptibly during warm
days late In February and early In
March Richly per cent of the whit
ened buds pasted through the winter
safely while only 20 per cent ot Ibo un
whitened buds escaped winter killing
Whitened bud blossomed three lo six
days later than unwhltencd buds Ther

color of the peach twigs regliteicd dur

over 20 degrees higher than Ihermom
stem covered with white material of
similar lesluie thus Indicating that
whitened peach twigs might be ex
pected to absorb much leas heat than
those tint were not whitened The
whitewash used was four part of
water one part of skimmed milk and
enough freshly slacked lime to make
as thick a wish at could conveniently
be pumped through a llordrnux spray
noule without iluiglng this wash
wit sprayed on tho tree by means ol
a bucket spray pump The Out appli

and three subtcquenl sprayings were
necessary to keep 1lho tree thoroughly

Tho foregoing la I ana way of hunting
beitr nn1 the other li by trapping
ilthcr deadfall or steel traps This
mode of trapping It only practiced In
Ibo spring Shortly after tho bears
come out of their dent they retort tn
creeks and small doer where carp
sad small trout spawn at that teaton
Druln to an expert flthorman and will
stand on the low banks and with n
dash of his fore paw land out one or
two fish at a stroke
The Indian hunter knows these
creaks and risers and It Is I on their
bank he sets his trap with Borne
tempting bait such as mutqiiaih meat
or corn with maple syrup mixed to
gether neither of which Is I It pomlhlo
for Mr Hear to pas without making a
try for
Wooden trap or deadfalls nro made
In the limo shape as the wellknown
flgurcoffour trap for marten and oth
er small animal only many times larg
er and the cruthlng weight or loalllll
much ns two strong men could l lift
Tho bait Is I tied on to a loop of tw lit
ed roots and the latter Is I caught over
the wooden trigger that supports the
loaded crossbar and then on thin peg
at back of the trap The bear after
drawing In strong whiffs of the tempt
ing morsel from the entrance venture
nldly In The depth of tho trap It I
almost equal to the length of his body
to when ho tugs nt the bait the middle
of his body Is I dlreclly under the cross
bar Tho loop slips off the peg and tho
weight of the logs and stones crash
down on poor old MusICwa
The Indian prefers using alto steel
trap as It Is more certain and the bear
keeping alive for several day the
hunter li I not required visit his traps
so often
During the hot spring Slays n bear In
n deadfall very soon becomes flyblown
and rotten and tho meat useless and
very frequently the skin alto
It Is I In tho spring of the year Wn
RaKcJIc takes his twentypound now
