J $500,000,000 banquet to alien enemies has been given annually by the American public. These aliens were not invited here, have performed no service, and yet have been fed on the fat of the land, adding to the high cost of living. They have tremendous appe tites, consuming trees or entire forests, garden crops and fields of grain and cotton. These undesirable citizens that have made America their adopted home are insects and plant diseases which have been introduced from for eign countries, writes Charles Lnthrop Pack, president American Forestry as sociation, in American Forestry. There's a pest for every plant. Some plants have more than a thousand in sects and fungus diseases which attack some portion of them, causing death or injury. However, most of the pests which attack our plants are native to Aierica and have natural enemies which keep them in check. "And all those fleas have little fleas, upon their backs to bite 'em. And those again have lesser fleas, and so "ad infinitum." Thus native insects have a host of voracious enemies, including birds, an imals, and other insects, which pre serve the "balance ot nature. The ravages of native pests seldom become devastating except occasionally in small areas and for o short time when conditions become exceedingly favor able for their rapid propagation. Hitherto, America has maintained an open door to plant immigrants and. year after year, destructive insects and plant diseases have come to this coun try on these plants from abroad. Some of these pests have found the land of freedom entirely to their liking. Some times the climate here has been ex ceptionally favorable for their rapid development, at other times they have found new food plants. In such cases they have propagated rapidly because the balance of nature was no longer maintained. In most cases the fight against Imported plant pests has been begun too late. The uncontrolled ravages of the late blight and rot of potatoes in 1916 was responsible for the shortage in the po tato crop which sent prices soaring. Powdery scale and scurf are two other potato diseases which have been brought in from abroad. More recent ly, the potato wart disease, establish ed in Pennsylvania from European im portations, has given cause for alarm. The Hessian fly, introduced from Eu rope in revolutionary times, causes an average annual loss to the wheat crop of fifty million dollars, and in some years the loss from this one insect has exceeded one million dollars. The loss of fruit due to the codling moth, to gether with the money spent in control ling this insect, costs the United States about sixteen million dollars a year. Another imported fruit insect, the San Jose scale, entails a loss of at least ten million dollars annually. The tale of the gypsy moth, in ri bald rhyme, illustrates what nappens when an insect reaches the United States from another country. To paraphrase : mm Emm. CONTROL SHEEP-KILLING DOG THIN PEOPLE SHOULD TAKE PH0SP1 IATE There- was a man vrfm- fireed two moths,. And! those tvo moths were mothers-;. TYiat year there were ai million more;. Tlte next a million others. They had tremendous- appetites, And wrought great devastation, Until the state wlt&i wrath arose,. And fought like Clairrie Nation.. A fight was begun which has lasted for years and today 3t has cost more than fifteen milli-orx &allars in cashi for applying control measures, besides many times tMs anaount of property damage. The chestnut blight is a bark dis ease which was brought to this; coun try from the Orient on Japanese chest nut nursery stock. It was first found on western; Liong Island in 119M. In ten years it spread over half of the chestnut area of the United States and at the present time it has practically exterminated the chestnut trss within a 100-mile radius of New York and is rapidly accomplishing the complete ruin of our magnificent clSaestnut for ests of the South. The loss is many million dollars and its ultimate end! will be the extinction of one of the most useful and most profitable Amer ican forest trees, as im remedy has; been found. Only recently it was found that a similar disease attackSusg the poplars had been' imported from ! the nurseries of France and had spread over a wide area of the United States. Other dangerous pests introduced from abroad are the Oriental peach moth, the Japanese beetle, the Euro pean earwig, the Leopard moth, the alfalfa weevil, the European eelworm. The European corn borer is a pest which apparently was brought to the United States in, a cargo of hemp un loaded at a rope factory near Boston. It is exceedingly destructive to corn, feeding by boring in the stalk. In its operation it works upward, eating out the stalks in a com field may be in fested. Over two hundred borers have been found: in the stalks growing: la one hill of corn. Control is made more difficult Sy tbe- fact that the borer feeds on a? number of other plaints including the- staTks of weeds and flow ers, and may Tltre o-ver winter in graiss roots. It is so- menacing: that the pne? cnt agricultural" department appropri ation bill contra an. fCercr of $250.00 for fighting' it- The bureau of entomology.

Tbe life- stories of some- of thse pests, as unfolded by years of study on the- part of patient scientists, are so amazing as to be classed" with fairy stories by those who- are little av quainted with the wonders of nature. White pine blister rust is- an instance. This parasitic fungus- is-- native to- tfte old woiiVV, attacking the stone r.irve and other- native five-leaved pines- of Europe.. White pines- imported from Germany, France and! Holland, brovigfit this disease to the United States, prin cipally ijn 1908 andi 1909. CuriousJy. the safety of our white pines depends entirely on whether we can control' i?he sprea-d1 ef the disease on eurrai and goosebrry bushes. The fungus can not g5 directly froiro ne pine tree to another but first mttst spend" part of its lliftp on currant or gooseberry leaves and in this stage- it has the power of spretsing rapidly aud widely to other currant and gooseberry bushes. The fungns then develops another stage by wMh it is enabled! to pass back to the pfnes. If we destroy the currant and gooseberry hushes we prevent the dis ea-se from infecting our whit pines. Hence, the saltation of these magnifl cent trees depends to a large degree n whether people are willing to fore go the luxury of currant Jelly and, gooseberry Jam. The system of inspecting- the impor tations of foreign nursery stock hs proved ineffectual because the eyesight of the most competent inspector is mot capable of discovering ewy insecir or plant disease on every plant. Many of them, especially finssg?, are hidden under the bark and are entirely invis ible. It must be remembered that of many of these pests; we have no con ception, based on experience In its na tive land, as to Its destructive powers under American conditions The question "what shall we do abont It?" has been answered correctly by the federal embargo, Avhich prohib its further importation of plants from abroad except such as are specifically Secretary of Agriculture Asks Twenty Governors to Urge Laws Pro tecting Sheep. (Prepared by the United States depart ment of Agriculture.) The enactment of more adequate state laws to control sheep-killing dogs is urged by Secretary Houston in a letter just sent to the governors of 20 states. The secretary points out that, although there has been a grati fying increase in the number of sheep in the United States in the past year, there is room for further expansion of the Industry. Farmers, he says, are discouraged in many instances from keeping sheep on account of the dan ger of damage by dogs. The letters were sent to the governors of Arkan sas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Indi ana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Mary land, 3Iinnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hnmpshlre, North Carolina, Okla homa, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vir ginia, West Virginia and Wlscorasin, where state legislatures are now in session. Following is the letter: "I understand that many states nw have under consideration the matter f legislation to encourage the larger de velopment of the sheep industry by re moving or controlling the dog menaces During the past year, as you perhaps know, there has been a gratifying in- crease in thie number of sheep in the United State-si There is undoubtedly room in many sections f the country for further e:ipansion along this line; especially i tBre settled farming areas. The field representatives of this de partment, however, generally report that farmers am discouraged in many Instances from' keeping sheep on ac count of tlie- danger tf damage by dogs.
