BUSHES DIFFICULT TO KILL Large Number of Seedlings Some times Are Found Growing Under Dead Plants That Were Dug When in Fruitage Stage. (Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) In carrying on the fight against the •ommon barberry, the plant that har bors stem rust of wheat, the United States Department of Agriculture has ’ound that it is vdty important to do he job of digging thoroughly and to destroy plants having berries, even though they are only partly matured. The bushes are hard to kill, and seeds Ito The rroper Way to Remove Barberry Bushes Is to Dig Deep Enough to Remove All the Roots. from plants that were dug August 1 produced a high percentage of seed lings. After the bushes are taken out the tops should be separated from the crown and balls of earth shaken from the roots. Grubbed bushes, lying on the ground, have been found produc ing green leaves. In such cases one or more roots were in contact with the soil. Some of the grubbed bushes were completely severed from the soil, but there was enough earth left on the roots to hold moisture until secondary roots were formed. This condition hap]>ens most frequently In wet weather or in moist woodlands. Seedlings Under Dead Bushes. Great numbers of seedlings some times are found growing under dead bushes that were dug when in fruit. The last of September berries were collected from bushes dug August 1, and 1,000 of them (about 2,000 seeds) were scattered on loose earth and lightly covered with dirt and leaves. The following June there were 282 seedlings on this area. The same num ber of berries were collected from standing bushes at the same time and sown under similar conditions. The following June there were 307 seed lings on the area, showing that the immature seeds were almost ns viable as the matured ones. It is probable that seeds from bushes grubbed out even before August will grow’, and for this reason It is important, says the department, to destroy them. Advisable to Watch Sprouts. It also is advisable to watch the sprouts that may come up where old barberry plants have been taken out. These sprouts produce seed much earlier than bushes that grow direct ly from seeds. Bushes were dug In the fall of 1920. That same fall sprouts w’ere produced, and during the following year they grew vigorously. By 1922 these plants were bearing flowers In abundance. This summer, therefore, special attention must be given to places where bushes were dug lu 1920 or earlier, says the de partment. KEEN INTEREST IN POULTRY Between 5& and 75 Letter. Seeking Information Received by Animal Induatry Bureau. Mnny requests for information on poultry raising—averaging between 50 and 75 letters a day since early In the year—are reported by the bureau of animal Industry, United States De partment of Agriculture. In addition the supply of poultry literature dis tributed by the division of publica tions has surpassed the records of all previous years. The department's literature on poul try raising Is unusually completp, ranging from discussions of the prin cipal breeds of poultry to manage ment, housing. Incubation, brooding and culling. The department's poul ry publications Include mere than Idrty bulletins for general distribu te) and many others of technical '■nrncter on apeclal phases of poul r wort. WALNUT AND HICKORY TREES HURT BY PEST Species of Snout-Beetles Attack Immature Fruits. Methods of Controlling Nut-Infesting Curculics Include Burning Fallen Nuts and Spraying With Arsenate of Lead. (Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) Several species of snout-beetles nearly related to the common plum curculio attack the Immature fruits, tender shoots and leaf petiples of walnut and hickory trees. A discus sion of four such species, all belong ing to the genus Conotrachelus, which closely resemble one another In ap pearance, habits and seasonal activ ities, is given in United States De partment of Agriculture Bulletin 1006, Curculios That Attack the Young Fruits and Shoots of Walnut and Hickory, by Fred E. Brooks, entomol ogist. Special characteristics of the but ternut curculio, the black-walnut cur culio, the hickory nui, the hickory shoot curculios are separately de scribed. Methods of controlling nut infesting curculios include burning the fallen ntits, spraying the leaves which they eat with arsenical poisons, and spraying the nut trees with lead ar senate. While the dropping of cur culio-lnfested walnuts and hickory nuts before the larvae in them mature affords an opportunity for destroying the young Insects by collecting and burning or otherwise disposing of the fallen nuts, this method Is successful only In cases of Isolated trees or plantations. Lead arsenate applica tions on the stems, leaves and fruit, soon after growth starts in the spring, can be counted on to give godd re sults in reducing injury from butter nut and black-walnut curculios. Spray ing walnut trees with lead arsenate at a strength of six pounds to fifty gallons of water is an effective method of controlling the butternut curculio. HENS HAMPER GRASSHOPPERS Make * Better Showing on Infested Nebraska Farm Than Poison— Fowls Bring Profit. (Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) On the Scottsbluff reclamation proj ect, Mitchell, Nebraska, where the grasshopper pest has been particular ly bad this year, various methods of control have been tried out. One of the most successful methods observed so far was used by a farmer who has a quarter-section of land. Five hundred chickens divided into lots of 100 were kept in colony houses on 80 acres of the farm and moved about as occasion required. As a re sult. on the half of the farm where Chickens on Free Range Devour Many Harmful Insects. the chickens were pastured there were only about 20 per cent as many hop pers as on the other 80 acres. This is a better showing than has been made on most of the fields where poison was distributed. The owner and the renter found the method profitable. After they had used what they needed of the poultry for domestic purposes, and after the weasels and coyotes had taken their toll, the rest were marketed and brought In about 75 per cent of the orlg'jial investment. Tills year the owner Is stocking the farm with 1,000 chickens as insurance against the grasshopper pest. PRODUCTION OF YOUNG TREES Unless Allowed to Overload, They Will Not Be Injured by Rather Early Bearing. Growers of fruits sometimes are alarmed because very young trees may set rather heavy crops of fruit. Since it is perfectly natural for fruit trees to bear, they will not be injured by early production unless allowed to overload. As long as a tree makes a normal growth, fruit production will not hurt it. Peach and plum trees may pro duce considerable fruit at two or three years of age; even when only one year old they sometimes begin bearing. Under the long system of pruning, which is now being so generally prao tlced, there Is a tendency for trees to bear more heavily and earlier than under the old system of heavy cutting back. It has been noticed that despite rather heavy fruit production at an early age, such trees will make a fine growth and apparently there Is no In terference with their general condi tion. While heavy thinning may be desir able in the case of young fruit trees, they may be allowed to bear some fruit, and the practice of those who. pull It off seems to be unwarranted In the face of extended observation*. ©TfIE ®. AMEBIffiN LEGION (Copy for This Department Supplied by the American Leginn New» Service.) FOUR MEDALS ON HIS BREAST Carl M. Lange of Nebraska Is That State’s Most World War Veteran. Four medals on his breast and the French cord on his arm make Carl M. Lange of Hart ington, Neb., that state's most dec orated World war veteran. Com pa ra 11 vely few men who fought for or with France have had the coveted Me dal 11 e Militaire bestowed on them.. This dec oration goes only to enlisted men and to commanders-ln-chlef of armies In tlie field. No officer in between is eligible to receive the medal. Yet Lange was awarded two. One Marshal Petain pinned on his 0. D. Several months aften the armistice Lange opened a registered package with a French stamp on it and found another Meduille Militalre. The highest honor Nebraska could give one of its World war. heroes went to Lange also. He was chosen by the state commander of the American Le gion to officially represent Nebraska ■ t tlie burial In Arlington cemetery of the “Unknown Soldier.” The Distin guished Service cross, bestowed person ally by General Pershing, the Croix de Guerre with palms and the knowledge that he carried Merle Hay from the trendies are other things that remind Lange of his war service. Hay was the first lowa boy killed in the war and one of the first three American boys to die in action. WILL CONDUCT BAND CONTEST Charlej E.

I'd like to be a corpril and with the cor prlls stand, A chevron on my coat sleeve arid a war rant in my hand, But when I think it over all my hope to gloom descends. I'd like to be a corpril—but I’d rather have my friends. The private marches dumbly—this way, that way. what’s the odds? While the corpril joins the shouting when the order's "Right by squads!” But when the drill is over then the cor prll’s glory ends, Oh, I’d like to be a corpril—but I’d rather have my friends. The extra pay comes handy and the chev ron makes one proud. But it’s tough to be a noncom when your h*»art is with the crowd. To persecute your buddies with commands the captain sends.

The colonel had heard of two recent disasters In the family of his colored orderly and was surprised to find him apparently as cheerful as ever when he returned to duty after a brief fur lough home. “Well, Sam," said the colonel sym pathetically, “I hear you have had Borne bard luck.” "What, me, suh? Nossuh, Ah aln’ ’hud no hahd luck.” “Why, wasn't that your brother who was killed In a railroad wreck recent ly and wasn’t that your wife that was hurt in an automobile accident?” “Ob, yassub, yassuh—but dot’s delr hahd luck —not mine.”—American Le gion Weekly.
