These injured berries begin to appear while the fruit is young and green, as it ripens they increase in number. Frequently several of these discolored and slnivcled berries will be fastened together bv silken threads intermix ed with the excrement of the larva) and the stickv irraoe iuice, the larva) having passed from one to the other. The appearance is not unlike that produced by black rot, and is often confused with the latter. As the larva becomes mature it changes to an olive green or dark-brown color, and not only excavates the pulp, but burrows into the seds ot the grape. It is very active and is apt to wrig gle out of the grape and escape. Fl i the Like biliousness, dyspepsia, headache, consti pation, sour stomach, indigestion are promptly cured by Hood's Tills.

The records of the Department show also that this in sect is a rather general feeder, and it has been bred from seed bunches of sumac and the leaves of the tulip and magnolia. It sometimes enters the leaf galls of the phylloxera and eats not only the interior of the galls, but as. observed by Mr. Pergande, the young and mother louse also. . It has proved particularly destructive at times in Ohio, Missouri, and Pennsyl vania, and in many cases 50 to 75 per cent of the crop has been ruined When full grown the larva attains a by it.

The little slate-colored moth with reddish brown markings on the fore-wings appears in ten or twelve days, draw ing its chrysalis partly after it and depositing eggs for an additional brood of larva). The la.-tt brood of larva; remains in the leaf cases all winter. The moths coming frou these hibernating chrysalides appear in early spring, and the first brood of larva) lives on the leaves, tendrils and blossoms, there being, of course, no grapes for them to infest. This insect was imported many years ago into this 'country from southern Europe, where, in Austria and Italy particularly, it is very in jurious and has two or three near al lies which affect grape leaves and fruit in the same way, but which, Man is ever thankless!

The early brood of this insect is so scanty that it is rarely noticed, and hence pro tective steps are seldom taken. La ter on in the season it multiplies with great rapidity, and particularly does it become numerous and de structive if grape gathering be de ferred until a late period. The us ' of poisons is not practica ble except against the first brood, which develops on the green parts of the vine, and here the result is doubt ful, because it is more than likely to breed on a great variety of foliage, and spraying would not afford much projection. Ragging of grapes as soon as the fruit sets will undoubted y protect them from this insect, and at the same time from black rot. Of greater practical value, especially in larger vineyards, is the, prompt collection and burning of all fallen leaves in the autumn, thus destroying the hibernating larva) and pupa?, and also the collection and destruction of diseased fruit wherever , feasible. Early gatheiing and shipping or dis posal of fruit otherwise is a particlar- ly valuable step, as it ensures the re moval of the larva) in the grapes from the vineyard if not their dc- The "Rossmore, The Businem Cent e.
