Cabbage Worms and Aphids. Grasshopper plagues 'date back to biblical days. In India the grasshop pers attack and eat up the crops: In turn, the starving people attack and eat up the grasshoppers. As this is an appetite that we have not as yet acquired, we prefer to attack and des troy these pests by other means. The most practical and successful method of combating grasshoppers Is by broadcasting the following bran mash early in the morning before sun up. especially along the ditch banks and fence rows: Coarse bran. 20-25 pounds. Cheap molasses, 2 quarts. White arsenic. X pound. Orange or lemons, 3. Water, 2 1-2 gallons. Mix thoroughly bran and arsenic In dry state. Add syrup to water. Chop fruit up line or run through grinder, and add to the liqlud. Add gradually the liquid mixture to the dry mixture, stirring thoroughly. The consistency of the mash should be moist and crumbly so that it can readily be broadcasted, but there should be ne. large chunks. When the young grasshoppers are first noticed, do not delay tn broad casting your poison mash, as It Is much easier to poison them before they are able to flv A second broadcast ing is advisable a week or Ion days after the lirst. Grasshoppers lay their eggs about one inch below the surface of the A. ground along neglected fence rows, and In grass grown and weedy Helds from the middle of August until frost. Fall plowing, thorough disking harrowing in fall or early spring be fore the oggH hatch, w ill break up and destroy most of these egg masses. Community work counts In poisoning grasshoppers the same as in poison ing squirrels. or Cabbage Worms. The greatest insect injury to cab bage is caused by either the Imported cabbage worm, which is the velvet green caterpillar of the white butter fly so commonly seen around gardens, or the cabbage looper, which Is a greenish worm striped with whitish lines. The presence of these worms cun be recognized by the riddled ap pearance of the leaves and by the presence of considerably crumbly, excrement. If the gardener has only a few plants, hand-picking is the best way to get rid of these worms. Where large patches are Involved, the follow ing spray Is recommended: Lead arsenate paste, 2 pounds, or lead arsenate powder, 1 pound. Water, 50 gallons. Soap, 2 pounds. v Use any cheap, soft, yellow simp to make the spray stick to the leaves. Dissolve soap in a little boiling water and add enogh water to make fifty gallons. Add lead arsenate to this water. Mix thoroughly. The mixture should be kept agitated while using, to prevent the lead arsenate from set tling. This same spray will kill worms attacking the leaves of other plants, as turnips, beets, etc. Cabbage Aphids. These are the "rooties" of the cab liage patch. When the cabbage leaves I begin to curl, look for the "cooties" 1 on u,,. under side and in the axil of »he ) c . a ves. Sprinkle thoroughly with i handfuls of tine dry dust, ( „„.„„„ary to repeat this ! or mice later before the pests j ftre eliminated. j To handle large patches, si ray be fore the leaves curl with "Black leaf 40." using one part tn 1,000 parts of water. This same spray will kill (aphids (plant lice) attacking (he leaves and shoots of other plants. If both cabbage worms and aphids [are present, mix the lead arsenate spray and the "Black-leaf 40" spray j and apply at the same time. It may be treatment I j I I I'resertstive Treatment of Fence Posts One of the big expense bills that the Idaho farmer pays annually is for fence posts. Numerous tests extend j ing over many years show that this heavy expense may be cut in two by preservative treatments which will I lengthen the iife of wooden posts to twenty-live years. j The kind of post to treat should de i pend iargely upon their price. In j general, the posts to I«; treated should those near at hand or those which may he secured at a small cost. Preservative treatment not only lengthens the serviee of the fence post wood now commonly used, hut it. also makes possible the use of many com mon soft woods (cottonwood, soft ma ple, ash) which heretofore have been considered worthless. Many of these i Inferior soft woods actually have an advantage over the harder woods. since they take in preservatives more readily. The quality and amount of preservative in a piece of wood and not the wood itself, determines large i> the length of service of treated timebrs. A 4-inch post,of the less dur able native woods, after a good treat ment with creosote, will last pract ically as long as a 7-inch post, and In treatment only absorbs about one-half the amount of preservative. Creosote la by far the moot import ant preservative for wooden fence posts. In the open Tank Method (in expensive tank set over open tire) the posts are allowed to remain iu the hot preservative for a period of front two to six hours, during which time the air and moisture in the post are heat ed. expanded and partly driven off. The posts are then allowed, either to remain in the preservative as it cools (single tank method), or are changed quickly to a cool tank of creosote (double tank method, and allowed to remain from one to several hours. In either case the cooling process causes a contraction of the remaining air and moisture In the wood struct ure. and. as a result, additional pre servative is drawn Into (he wood.
