Wheat and the IIchkIuu Fly.
The insert known by the. common!
Mime of UesHiaii lly is a wididy din-,
tributed ii?st. and i'h sometime so'
abunilant over certain region) tbiit,
farniors aro compelled to "abandon the.
cultivation of wheat.' It has been
known for over a century, and, while
first discovered attacking wheat near
thin city, it is now found almost everywhere-,
from Niiiiuo to Kausus, and will
))obahly, KoouiT or later, appear In nil
the whebt-jirowiiiy regions ol the Culled
lHaten. An early us liH it iiluiost to
tally dt'htroyed the. wheat crop in east
ern I onf Inland ami there has been
(scarcely a season isiiiue in which thn in
fect bus not appeared in someone or
more places, seriously injuring the
crop, and sometimes destroying the
plants for several years in succession,
and then suddenly disappearing as
mysteriously tus it came.
"'Ibe Jlessian lly is a two-winged in
sect, and belongs to a group of minute
Hies w hich aro all more or less injurious
to plants. There are several species
known to bo destructive to cultivated
plauU. but this wheat pest is probably
the worst of the family. It is double
brooded, one brood appearing late in
the summer, and tho other cany in the
spring, but tbe summer or full brood is
generally tho most destructive. The
llies come in August and September,
and depos't their eggs upon the young
wheat plants very soon after they ii
jiear ahovc ground. The ejrgs hatch in
a week or ten days, and the grubs
crawl down tbe leaf ami feed upon the
Rtalk, causing it to wither and die.
The early spring brood attacks tho
wheat in the same way, but the plants
often outgrow the injury at this season.
The presence of the Hessian lly in a
wheat rield is soon made apparent by
the number of plants that turn yellow
and die, and if these are examined the
crubs, or the bright chestnut-colored
pup.e which resemble a small flaxseed,
will be found imbedded in the crown of
the plant, or within the folds of the
leaves. Various remedies and preven
tives have been tried, but all fail in
some seasons while successful in others.
I. ate sowing, or after the llies have;
been killed bv frosts, is quite com
monly practiced in the Northern States,
and by many fanners is considered the
best preventive. Kntomologists who
have closely studied the liabits of this
insect recommend late sowing, even at
tbe risk of having the wheat injured by.
the frosts and cold of winter. In our
more Northern States, wheat sown,
about September 'i will not usually
appear above ground before October 1,
at which time tho llies will h:ivo mostly
disappeared. Of course there are ex
ceptions to th's rule. and. if the weather
happens to bo very warm during Sep
temtjer, the llies may live and deposit
their eggs on th wheat plants in Octo
ber, but they will not be very unbiind
ant. In tho report of the "Ohio Agri
cultural Experimental Station'' for
18:!, we find tho following very prac
tical suggestions in regard to the best
tin o for sowing winter wheat fn order
to escape the attacks of tho tly:
Winter wheat may bo sowed too
early in the season or it may bo sowed
too "late, so thcro must be a certain
time, neither too early nor too late.
Many factors must be considered in
designating the best time to sow. Tho
condition of the soil, and exposure, tbo
presence of the Hessian lly, etc., must
all be duly considered. The best timo
for sowing wheat in Central Ohio is
from September ID to September .so."
In a few instances very early sown
wheat is reported to have been fe-s in
jured by the lly than when sown in tho
intermediate or late season, and it is
supposed that the reason of it was that
while the lly attacked it, the plants
were growing so rapidly that they es
caped serious injury. Uut where early
sown wheat has escaped only loss in
jured than late, it may bo considered
as an exception to me rule, ami wnere
the tly is about farmers should put oil'
sowing their winter wheat until thcro
havo been a few light frosts or at least
u;ili.c cool nights. AT. i'. Sun.
Mnco tho blood is tho life, tho itegreo
of its purity will determine the amount
of lifo that can be sustained. (Jood
health is utterly incompatible with im
pure blood, that which does not con
tain tho proper elements from which
tho various organs and tissues of tho
body must secure their nutrition.
Puro blood, such as Adam and Eve
had, is natural, tho impure boing acci
dental, resulting from deviations fiom
naturo's rules, violations of her laws.
Tho air is naturally pure, but if we con-,
taminato it by encouraging tilth, by al
lowing a piirgery, a foul stable or any
outhouse, reeking with tilth, in tho im
mediate vicinity of our dwellings, poi
sonous gases, foul stenches constantly
entering tho homo, such pestiferous ex
halations will and must contaminate,
corrupt our blood, as puro air is ono of,

cation, lfwoconline tbo Itir in our
sleeping apartments, any room of the
house, in tho church, lecture-room,
shops, anywhere, breathing it over ami

blood till it Is purified bv tho vegeta

If, tlieroforo, wo would havo puro air,
such as will aid in the luvigoration 'and
ntrilieation of tho body, if wo would
itvve our apartments fresh and sweet,
we must open tho doors and windows,
never fearing that tho night nir is
poisonous, for tho most poisonous nir Is
that which is confined, tlio free nir nov
or bolng impure, ouly so far as it is
inado so by local causes, stagnant wa
ters, piggeries, distilleries and tho like.
The use of impure food, also, is a source
of Impuro blood, from tho fact that all
blood is made from our food. If tho
material is not good, therefore, tho
product can not be good. Wo can not
eat lilthy pork -tho most naturally Im
pure of any animal food which wo oat
diseased meats, rancid butter, lard
and meats, oggs whk h aro too old to bo

It can. not bo pure, can not furnish goodj
materials for theslructnrc of the tissues!
ef tho body.
Tho purification of the blood, there
fore, Is efl'eelod naturally. A cheap
means of doing it is to breathe all of i
tho puro air available by day and by J
night, as tho supply can never bo ex
hausted, while it is not probable that
tho heartless speculators can evermako
a "corner" in this commodity. If wo
render il Impure by breathing, it Is waft
ed away from us, coming in contact with
thn leaves, is robbed of its noxious
poisons, that part sustaining vegeta
tion, while it soon may return to us re
vivified, ready for use again.
To make good blood, as already in
timated, tliero must be good food-materials.
And hero, I would emphasize
tho (act that the most wholesome and
nourishing food is the plain and sim
ple the most easv of digestion. A piece
of mince pie, rieli pastry reeking with
grease and sugar, can not favorably
compare with plain, lean meat, the
grains and fruits. When the food is
sutlicieiitiy simple, taken in moderate
quantities", all may be assimilated, ade
quately nourishing tho I oily, with no
waste to putrefy tho body,.
Since tho body is constantly dying in
all of its parts, tho old and worn-out
tissuei passing oil', being renewed by
new materials made from the blood,
daily produced from our food, and
since more than one-half of this waste,
dead matter passes oll'lhrougli the pores,
it is a matter of much importance that
tho siir.aee should bo kept in a good
condition. ,,( 'leanlinos is next togod
liness." Of course tho most import
ant means of purifying tho blood is by
the escape o: this dead, wasto matter
through the pores seven millions in
numbers -when this wasto is properly
removed bv washing, that it may not
lx! absorbed, re-entering tho body. To
prevent this absorution, it is necessary
to wash the whole body daily when the
'-scape is the most profuse changing

jf which a large per cent, may become

Such garments may be half cleansed

it so hung that both may gain access.
It was only a few years ago that the
attention of Illinois farmers was direct
ed to the subject of underdraining as a
means of improving tho productive ca
pacity of their lands, and carrying oil
the surface water that retarded lield
work so late in the spring. They at
once recognized tho value of drainago
as a necessary feature in the agricul
ture of a State whoso surfaeo is monot
onously level, ami began to tako steps
to introduce it. How far they havo
progressed may be learned from the
fa 't that there are now .O.'iu drain-tile
faetores in tho State, nearly all of them
established since l7.i. The greater
number of them are to bo found in the
central portion of the State east of tho
Illinois lirter, which embraces tho grain
district. Thes ) factories have an ag

The following is a description of the
manufacture of a very popular cheese,
knosvn in France under the name of
( Jerome It is largely consumed in
Paris just as it is ripe, and it svould be
dillicu't to mention any choose which is
more delicious at this parti ular period.
It is a soft, round cheese, vary.ng in
weight from four pounds to eight
pounds, and is sometimes made with
tho add:lion of anise-seed. It is made
with milk at tho temperature at which
it comes from tho cow, this beingplaeed
in a deep copper vat holding some forty-five
quarts, when it is covered with
a" sv ooi ten lid, in the center of which is
inserted a wooden funnel resembling in
form a cup. To tho bottom of this is
attached a cloth for straining. When
this is not used a small disc is drawn
over tho hole. The rennet is imme
diately added, in quantity according to
tho weather and its strength. In half
an hour the whey is divided from the
curd with a ladle, and tho sat re-covered.
In another half hour tho separa
tion is continued, with the aid of a cop
per strainer tsvolvein hes by four inches.
When tho curd is divided in
to pieces about tlio sio of a
small nut it is taken out and
placed in small cylindrical molds,
from five inches to nino inches in di
ameter. Tsvo molds aro used for each
cheese, tho ono being fixed into tho
other, ssh'ch Is soinosvliat larger in di
ameter, and has a iiuml or of holes
pierced in tlio bottom. The total height
of the tsvo when tixed is from fourteen
inches to sixteen Inches. Tho curd en
tirely drains lu this mold mid In about
tsvelvo hours will have sunk to about
tho height of the bottom and tho larger
part of it, so tho top part can be taken
oil'. Tho cheese Is then placed in an
other mold of tho same diameter as tho
bottom ono, and put upon the shelf up
side down. After six hours It is again
turned, and this turning is continued
tsvico dally for tho tsvo follosving days.
In draining tho svhey tho molds are
placed upon sloping shelves which aro
luinlsheu with a rim at tho odge, as in
tho Camcmbert eheoso rooms In Nor
ni'iudy. Tho whey runs off and is col
lected in a receptacle placed at thq
side of tho table for the purpose. Tho
teiupcraturo of the room in which
this operation takes place should bo
from liftv-nlno dogs, to sixty four degs.
Fahr. The next tiling to be done is to
salt tho cheeses, svhlch for this purpose
are placed upon small boards made of
beech; and upon which layers of flno
salt nro sprinkled. Tho surfaeo of the
cheese must bo well saltod, and tho op
eration repented every three or four
days, caro being taken that It Is ttintcd
each time. This turning Is continued
twice daily for three day after salting,
and tho surfaces of tho cheeses each
time aro gently moistened with tepid,
water. When stiOlciontly dry on the
crust they are removed to the drying
room, thirty grammos ot salt having
shelves are built one above tho othor,.
ho that largo' numbers of chooses can
bo kept in a small space aud well cured,
providing tho temperature and aera
tion are comp'cle. In summer tho
process of ripening is frequently con-,
ducted in the open air, tho cheeses be
ing protected with cloths to keep off
llies and the sun; but during tho other
parts of tho your a specially prepared,
room is invariably used. When!
thoroughly dry they aro removed to
the cave o"r cellar 'or the completion of
the process, ami they are very carefully
managed. This i ave must lie in good!
condition, with a draught of air passing
through il; but if the temperature is
to ) low tho chooses crack and lose qual
ity. Tho timo they remain hero Is de
termined by the senson and sio of tho
cheese, tho maker ..udging this for him
self. Tho largest, hosvever, are genet
ally kept irom three to four months.
While in this compartment they are
often turned, and svashed with tepid
water slightly saltod, an I daily exam
ined to see whether they are ripening
too rapidly. When they are brick-red
in appearance and tho surfa e suf
lie'ently firm to yield to tho pressure of
tlio linger they are ready for market.

The First Russian Printer.
It may not bo altogether superfluous
to remind Westerns that Hussia has
celebrated tho three hundredth anni-ver-ary
of her tirst printer, Ivan
Fedorof, svho diid at Lvof on tho 17th
of December, W3. '1 he solo fact that
iho introduction of typography into
Russia dates a century later than tho
establishment of tho press in tho chief
centors of civiliod Europe speaks vol
umes. 1 he opposition and persecution
which met F'edorof on all sides would
havo been sufficient to mako most men
abandon oven their darling schemes.
Hut Fedorof was a man with a firm pur
pose and a firm faith in that purpose.
.No base motive prompted tho one en
deavor to which uis life was devoted;
the diffusion of tho Scriptures and that
which lie deemed noblest in literature
among his countrymen was tho purpose
which animated his life. In his own
country accused of heresy, subjected to
sore trials of bis faith in Lithuania,
whero ho had sought an asylum, vol
untarily renouncing tho support offered
by bis friend Khodkevich, who wished to
confine hisenergies to agriculturo.driven
from tosvn to town, dauntless and un
wavering, he pursued the ono object
for which bo existed, tho foundation of
the Russian press, upheld doubtless by
a linn belief in h!s mission and regard
less of the clouds which losvered round
his outer life.
Liko Caxton, ho was not a mere prin
ter. In ono respect he may be looked
on as superior to him, lor isi. I'etrusho
vich shosvs that ho was la-gely instru
mental in preserving tae purity of tho
Croat Russian language, and that ho in
this intention resisted pressing solicita
tions to print the Scriptures in local di
alects. Ho maintained a strict adhe
rence to tho Church Slavonic, in which
the tirst printed Lussiau book, the
"Apostol" (tho Acts aud Epistles), ap
peared in lo(!4.
It is necessary to remember that Pe-'
ter the (Jreat only introduced the civil
alphabet in 170 i. "ono hundred and fifty
years after tho date of tho foundation
of tho first press in Moscosv. During
his thirty years of arduous toil under
tho most disheartening difficulties Fe
dorof printed the svholo of tho Script
ures besides various liturgical books.
The chief production of his types svas
the great Hiblo printed under
tho patronage of Prince
Osthrohsky. 'Iho opposition which
beset Fedorof has never been per
manently and effectually relaxed in
Russia. For tsvo centuries tho print
ing press remained a State monopoly,
used almost exclusively for tho produc
tion of Government publications or re
ligious books. Only in 1771 was tho
first free pn ss established in St. Peters
burg, aud this with permission only to
print in foreign lauguages, in order to
prevent injury to tho Government
presses. It was no moro than a eon
tury ago that frco printing establish
ments svere allowed to set up in tno
towns of the empire and to print in tho
native as well as in foreign languages.
Perhaps only thoso svho havo lived
in Russia can fully recognize how tho
samo policy of suppression is pursued
in Russia to this day, and to svhat a
degreo tho Government, through tho
machinery of tho censorship, is still
master of public utterance This not
withstanding, Russia, with lior vast
area, sparse population, bad internal
communications and vast distances bo
