THE HESSIAN FLY.
Professor Cordley, entomolo-1
gist at the Oregon Experiment!
Station, has determined tnat tne
specimens of insects sent to the
station by a Lewisville, VVasli.,
wheatraiser, are the true Hessian
fly. ' 'This is the principal wheat
pest of the world," says Prof.
Cordley, ' 'one that is estimated
to destroy annually not less than
40,000,000 bushels of wheat in
the United States alone, but one
which has hitherto attracted no
attention in the Pacific North
west. "It is supposed to be of Euro
pean origin and to have been in
troduced into the United States
in straw which was brought by
Hessian troops. It has since
spread over practically all
the wiuter wheat regions of the
world, reaching California in
1884, and Oregon very near the
close of the century.
"It has obtained a firm foot
hold in the nery midst of the ex
tensive wheat-growings sections
of Western Washington and Ore
gon, and in view of the fact that
our system of extensive farming
with wheat is particularly favor
able to the development of this
pest, we may expect it to spread
rapidly and in the near future to
exact a heavy tribute from the
wheat-growers of this region.
"No. methods have been found
whereby this insect can be held
in check by application of insecti
cides. Reliance must be placed
wholly upon the practice of such
agricultural methods as are least
favorable to the development of
the insect. Among these may
be mentioned cutting the wheat
high and burning the stubble
immediately after harvest, the
destruction of all volunteer wheat
that starts during the summer
months by harrowiug and plow
ing, that there may be no plants
in which the supplemental spring
brood of flies can develop; early
sowing of strips through the
field to wheat which is later to
be plowed under, this to be fol
lowed by late sowing of the main
crop; rotation of crops."
Prof. Cordley does not view
with alarm the spread of this in
sect pest, but sees in it, rather, a
blessing in disguise, for he wise
ly says, in conclusion :
"The last method mentioned
will undoubtedly prove one of
the most important. In fact, if
the Hessian fly shall prove a
means of breaking up our exten
sive wheat fields and converting
them into fields of clover,
Tetch ad various other
crops, it will add not only to the
revenues of the state at large,
but of the wheatgrower himself. ' '
Speaking of the O A C the
La Grande Observer says: "This
chool occupies a field of its own
and the fact that its enrollment
is constantly increasing is con
clusive proof that the advantages
here offered are becoming gen
erally known. This is the only
school in the state where a prac
tical education can be obtained
and where a student can secure
industrial training. Aside from
other liites of education he can
become a competent mechanic,
civil engineer, electrician, chem
ist, dairyman, farmer and many
other trades, as we have in the
past made frequent mention.
Union oounty has sent several
students to this school, all of
whom have only praise for the
advantages there presented as
well as the capable managers
and instructors at its head. ' '
Taxes rolled in heavily at the
sheriffs office' Wednesday, over
$1,500 being paid to that officer.
Tne delinquent list tms year
will be the smallest in years.
When the money is paid over to
the county treasurer, warrants
can be paid up to about Febru
ary, 1900, leaving the county
practically out of debt. These
are arguments in favor of the
improved financial condition of

Yesterday, J A Klakenshid, who
has a forty-acre wheat field in Polk
count', about two miles from this
city, brought in the Statesman
office a groen worm about three
fourths of an inch long. He says
his wheat is literally covered with
the green aphis. The first of the
week this worm appeared and on
Tuesday he counted ten on a patch
of wheat four feet square. Yester
day they appeared to be on every
other head of wheat. They seem to
be the thickest near the timber and
are increasing very rapidly. It
to lies about two hours to clean all
the aphis from one head of wheat.
One of the worms sent to Prof A D
Cordley, Corvallis, Oregon, for ex
amination. The Statesman awaits
with interest his report upon it.
