ARE YOU DOING YOUR SHARE TO GET THEM? THE FARMINGTON TIMES, FARMINGTON, MISSOURI. For over a year, twenty-three public-spirited citizens have, at the re quest of the Governor, been at work endeavoring to reduce our laws bear ing on the case of destitute, neglected, delinquent and defective children to a umiorm warUMBM oasis. They have systematized the work for all counties, centering the responsibility for the care ot IUCB children in one agency. Many of the laws In Missouri for the welfare of children are conflict ing, and enforcement is difficult jit present because of inadequate ma chinery. No one agency in the county is charged with the responsibility of looking after the interests of children. The same conditions exist through out the United States, and a national movement is on foot for a complete code of laws relating to these four classes of children. Our State is one of the first to take up this work, its Code Commission having been ap pointed by the Governor in 1915. The results of their conferences are now before the Legislature under the name of the "Children's Code". It is ad vanced legislation and our Senators and Representatives need the influ ence of their constituents to see the importance of these bills, and it should be exerted immediately by let ter or telegram. So long as neglected, dependent, de linquent, and defective children are not properly cared for, just so long are they a menace to all children and to the State. For the sake of his own children, every father should person ally instruct the men for whome he voted that he expects them to put through the Juvenile Court bill and the bill providing for County Boards of wcuare, wnose duly it will be to look uner unioriunate Children, and see that they are safely cared for. Neither of these bills require the ap propriation of one cent for their exe cution. Even should the State or county wisn to appropriate sums to make them more effective, no father should allow money to outweigh the passage ot laws which will make con ditions better, not only for his owr children, but for all children. ORCHARD WILL RE SPOND TO SPRAYING THESE SUGGESTIONS MILL HELP IN THE PLY CAMPAIGN The Missouri College of Agriculture has received many requests for sug gestions In conducting fly campaigns. Observation of the following steps will bring effective results. (1) Kill as many flies as possible when they appear in spring. These first flies are the parents of the mil lions of germ-laden flies that will make lite miserable throughout summer One fly killed early in the spring il equal to millions killed in August 01 September. (2) Endeavor to prevent flies from breeding on the premises. Some flies will escape because they will breed in decayed vegetable matter or in the droppings of animals in the pastures However these will be almost negligible. (3) Fly traps are essential. They catch the flies coming from breeding places and thus prevent their migrat ing io me nouse. (4) Enlist the co-operation of all dealers in food supplies. Show them the danger from flies and what may result from unsanitary surroundings of their premises. If necessary, pat ronize only those dealers who keep their premises and tlieir products prop erly screened. They will soon clean their premises and eliminate flies if the campaign is brought to them in mis financial light. That orchards respond to care has been demonstrated repeatedly. In spite of the fact, however, many farm ers expect their trees to bear fruit without any attention whatever. It is just as important to care for trees as it is for animals. A highly produc tive tree is no more capable of shift ing for itself and competing with its enemies than an animal, yet farmers will take better care of their live stock than they do of their trees sim ply because they can more readily see the effect of neglect on an animal than on a tree. The Missouri College of Agriculture recommends orchard spraying for two purposes: first, to save the orchard from scale; and second, to save the fruit crop from insects and fruit di seases. Altho it is a little late to spray tor scale, badly infested or chards may still be sprayed with lime sulphur solution if application is made at once. It is too late to use snravs at scale strength after the leaves arc out. Concentrated lime-sulphur solu tion mixed with eight parts of water is recommended. Summer snravs nt best, only help to check the pest. Strong sprays when the trees are dor mant arc necessary for savino- tho or chard from scale. Orchardists who are not sure that their trees are in fested or who are not sure that they are clean, may send samples of twigs to the Collega of Agriculture for ex amination. Prompt action must also he taken if the fruit is to be saved this vnar. If "in soon oe lime lor the one impor tant spray of fruit diseases. the buds burst, showing the unopened blossoms. Never sprav when the trees are in bloom. The all important pray ror me apple worm, just after most blossoms are off, will follow this cluster spray. A spray composed of one and one-half gallons of con centrated lime-sulphur and two pounds of arsenate of lead paste to ou gallons ot water is recommended for these two applications. A spray calendar and other sugges tions on care or me orchard will lie sent on application to the College of Agriculture, Columbia, Mo.
