Remedy For Sugar Beet Web Worm Prof. C. B. Waldron of the Agri cultural College, in answer to an in quiry for a remedy and prevention against the worms now working around. Williston in the garden and fields, states that the worm is known as the Sugar Beet Web Worm. Poison ing and plowing deep furrows will keep them in check in small areas but all energy should be spent in destroying the nesting places of the worm in the ehrysalis stage in which condition they live over winter. This is done by burning all rubbish and grass wherever possible this fall and by plowing the gardens ar.d fields and harrowing the land this fall and early next spring. This is the cheap est and safest manner of destroying the worm to prevent reappearance next year. E. G. Schollander, County Agent.

We have shopped all last week and have bought merchandise to re tail at medium prices that will take you off your feet when you see it.

Off to the north of London is a part of the British fleet, a minor part, we are told. Light cruisers they are in name—great masses of steel, built and manned for fighting in reality. There they lie at anchor, like dogs chained in restraint, ready to be let loose at a moment's notice. One won ders that there ever was so much floating steel and power and so many guns in the world. One does not wonder that the German navy stays tied in Kiel, afraid to come out, and one breathes thanks for America that the British navy not only stands as a protection for Britain's shores against an invader that now knows no law or rule of decent warfare, but also to bombard any city which it can bring within range of its guns. Count the cruisers, one does. There is an understanding, however, that figures shall not be published, but let every American breathe easier for that part of the navy, and let each of us, when inclined to think that we are placing Great Britain under cer tain obligations to us in sending troops over to help in the fight, re member that we are under lasting obligations to Great Britain for the protection she has afforded us with her fleet, ever on the watch in the North Sea. But the light cruiser squadron is not all, by any means. Farther to the north is reached another and greater part of the North Sea fleet. Battleships, they are. Veterans of the Jutland and of the Dardanelles are there. Luncheon was served on one that came out of the Jutland fight with wounds, but it was not be yond repair. Powerful and great and new with others, the pride of the British navy is there—the great est battleship afloat. To the left the floating fighters are seen, in great numbers and tonnage beyond comprehension. To the right are more battleships. Farther and farther, and still beyond in the mist are seen the forms of more hulls, more stacks, more protectors of our shores and theirs. "If the Germans would only stay and fight if they only wouldn't run," said Durobeck, veteran admiral of the Dardanelles, modest of men, as he put to sea with his squadvor. to take up the watch for his land *»nd ours. Boys In The Trenches A company of British infantry that I saw marching away to- the trench es was made up of boys just turning 19 years. England takes in the hoys at 18, trains them a year and th^n sends them to the front. With the coming of American troops there was an agitation in England to send the 18-year-old boys to the trenches with six months' training instea of wait ing a full year. Three companies, seen marching along the Strand for the front, were made up of men from 35 to 40 years I old. All over England one notices the absence of young men, of men under 41 and boys over 18. They are either at the front or in training. It seemed to me that America would have to send at least 10,000, 000 to the front before our manhood would be combed as fine as it is comb ed in England.
