Editor Coubicic For the benefit of other farmers, I dreire to give you an account of ray success In Introducing the white-lungua disease among chinch-bugs. Oa June 14th 1 received a box con taining some four or five buga from Prof. Know, of Lawrence, Ka. The next day I gathered some from my field and put them la a box with about an inch of garden soil. My box la about 14 by 18 inches and enough bugs should be put In to cover tha bottom. Three days altar wards, Jane 18th, 1 bod a sufficient number of white-fungus" bugs to scnttsr thinly la my corn field. I bad, perbape, not more than three or four dosen bugs, bat I took soma of tha top soil from tha box, which Prof. Snow aald would likely be filled with the spores of the disease. On June 21st, or Just three days after patting out the first bugs, I again went to tha field to scatter mora of tha dead fa njruf -covered bugs, and waa much eurprieed to ace that th buga bad already taken tha disease la great cumber. Even eight or ted rods from where any diseased bugs bad been put, dead bugs with the characteristic white, cottony ap pearance could be found , at nearly every hill. When first dead they look like little balls of cotton. This morning, June 24th, the ground to the depth of a half Inch or more contains many, very many, of these white, dead bugs. When tha disease attacks them they aeek hade and shelter, hence the reason for finding them beneath the surface of the ground: I do not know what kind of bugs the Missouri station is sending out this year, but I am certain that the ones Prof. Porter sent to this part of the county last year were not the true white-tungue bugs. They were not white in appearance and none of of as even got them dieeased in the infection boxes. Later 1 eeut to Prof. Snow and got the true fungus bugs and succeeded all right with them in the infection box, but as it was so late and the bugs had scattered so much I did not give It a thorough trial in the field.

Drs. Welch and Baker were called and extracted the bullet, and they inform ua that if inflammation doea not aet in the patient will get along nicely. Ye editor's Garden.
