Cuba was third. The best markets

Way Has Been Found to
Stop Ravages of
Mountain Pine Pest
Washington. Jan 30. As a result
of experiments carried out under the
direction of the department of agri
culture, a method of combatting the
ravages of the mountain pine beetle
has been found, according to a de
partmental report issued today rhe
experiments were undertaken in
northeastern Oregon where beet',.
had worked havoc over more than
one million acres of valuable timber
land. The pest had destroyed nun.
i hau eight million trees
In conjunction with the foreaj Berv
ice and private owners of timbri the
departemnt experts confined their ef
forts to an area of ninety thousand
acres with such iUCCess that while
surrounding territory suffered heavily,
the experiment grounds' loss was "
per cent leas. The march ol the he.
tie to the south and southeast, it is
believed will be checked as a result
of the knowledge gained from the
tests which have been rontiuued over
'a space of nearly five years.
