Wonder of Insect Life Are Almost ea Incomprehensible to the Aver lie Man aa the Marvels ot Ilant Lite. tSpecial Washington Lette. CI1E3TXUTS this season are verj .wormy, and many people are - asking how does the worm get into the chestnut? The entomologist of the depart ment of agriculture, who knows all about all sorts of bugs, says: "The worm is put into the chestnut by o long-snouted beetle. This insect has a proboscis of most extraordinary pro portions, as mucli'as twice the length of its bedy. In the business it con ducts such an exceptional nose is ab solutely necessary, inasmuch as when the female desires to lay her eggs she crawls over the chestnut burr as it hangs cm the tree r.ct yet ripe and seeks the little opening at the top, through which she inserts tli snout. The snout thus introduced is projected clown through the thick prickly husk to the chestnut inside It may be that the beetle thrusts hei proboscis actually through the shel'. of the nuts themselves, but my im pression is that she simply lays hei eggs and pushes them with her snoul in among the nuts, leaving them there to he hatched, after which the littk worms bore their way in search 01 food into the kernels through holes 60 small as to be imperceptible. At all events they are quickly closed uj with the growth of the nuts. "You never find worms in chest nuts you obtain by smashing tin green burrs open. It is only the nuts that are found upon the ground, loose, or taken from ripened burrs that hav fallen, which appear to contain thes unpleasant intruders. Presumably the reason for this is that the worm, imperceptibly small in the freshly de veloped nut, begins to feed and tc grow very rapidly as soon as tin fruit has become ripe. At all events; you never find a worm in a chestnul that has a hole in it, but only tin destroyed meat. that it. has eaten and discarded. When the creature has tin ished devouring the kernel it borei its way out through the shell ant leaves the -hole behind it. "By the time the worm has con Rumed its chestnut and crawled out to look upon the world the weathei has begun to be. pretty cold, and it seeks shelter by burrowing into tin ground, where it lies in a torpid con dition for many months. Eventual) from the earth it emerges, though no1 in the shape of a worm, but as a beetle with a long snout. AA'hen au tutnn comes, it waits upon the chest nut t-ree or in its neighborhood, if if is a female, and chooses the propei time for shoving its eggs into th burrs wheit they are ripening. These worms are the new .crop, ready to be gin anew their destroying work, and so the thing goes- on from year tc year. In some seasons the beetles art comparatively scarce, and chestnut worms proportionately. Shippers o! chestnuts avoid sending their product long distances, so far as- is possible because the contents of the barrels become 'heated,' . as. they call, it, anc the . worms are rapidly developed, sc that a consignment-may reach the market altogether unlit for use. Tin best way to prepare chestnuts is tc immerse them in boiling water foi about ten minutes as soon as gath ered. AVormy nuts .will float on tin surface and may he removed. All eggs will be destroyed, and the condition o: the meat of the nut will be so changec that it will not become flinty by fur ther curing for' winter use. At the some time it will be in nowise a boiled chestnut. The nuts may ht OPENING OF THE CHESTNUT BTTRIi. dried in the sun, or iu dry houses, after being placed in sacks in quanti ties to admit of their being- spread to the thickness of about two inches, the sack frequently turned, and shaken. Dried by this method they remain quite tender and retain for a long time their delicious freshness and flavor. . "The worm of which I have spoken is not the only one that attacks the chtstnut. There is a species of moth that-lays its eggs upon the nuts as they lie upon the ground, and the little caterpillars hatched from the eggs attack the fruit. The chestnut Worm also' devours the .hickory nut, the ch'nquapia and the acorn." ' Xut growers understand that from the sprouting of the nut to the time when fruit is harvested there is much necessary care and culture common to all species of nvt -bearing trees. In nut orchards varying distances- are found to ber advantageous for plant ing." The most widely prevailing error has been in planting too close. Prop agators of chestnuts and pecans in sist that they do best without culti vation: .. '" One of the best-known growers in- 00., fr vr. forms the department of agriculture that after a chestnut orchard has at tained bearing age it jshould be sown with grass and pastured with sheep to enrich the land The department believes that it is questionable economy- to tax the land for the produc tion of other crops at the same time, but concludes that ordinary -cultivation does not injure' chestnut trees. Chestnuts are used very extensive ly in the eastern and southern mar kets, but their cultivation in the states along the Mississippi and Ohio valleys, during the past ten years has been very greatly increased. They are usually bought in little bags on street corners from strolling vendors, who sell them in a superheated state. Ex perts in the development and nse of chestnuts say -that they should be GATHERING CHESTNUTS. purchased from green grocers, taken home, and either boiled or roasted, and immediately used. They are also regarded as wholesome and nutritious when eaten raw, with plenty of salt and a little pepper. People usually regard nuts of all varieties as luxu ries, but the department of agri culture says they should be regarded as food, and should be studied, as such. It is said that peanuts as we!l as chestnuts, properly prepared, are good for dyspepsia and other stom ach ailments. This seems rather singular at first, because the prevail ing popular impression has long been that these nuts are indigestible. One of the learned professors says: "Dyspepsia is unknown in Italy where olive oil is so freely used as to be al most nauseating to people of this I country who visit there. But physi- j ciaris who understand -their business j prescribe olive oil in this country in ! cases of acute dyspepsia, and always with favorable results. 1 believe that j cottonseed oil, and peanut oil, and j chestnut oil are as beneficial for the i people of this country as olive oil is i for the people of Italy; and I am in- clined to think that those oils are bet- j ter for our people, because nature has i provided them in such luxuriant abun dance. And I think that the best, way to assimilate those oils is to take them directly from the nuts, by making them a part of the table food." Cultivators say that there is great variation in the fruitfuiness of individ ual trees even when their environments are similar, and almost identical. Most species of both sees are bisexual that is, the flowers of both sexes are on a single tree. But exceptions have been noticed by many observers of supposed unisexual individuals that is, having- the flowers of the two sexes on different trees. In such cases trees of both sexes must be planted in close pro'ximity in order to secure good crops of fruit. This is a singular fact, known to very few readers and , ordinary observers, that trees and other plants have sexes. Learned men know such facts, but com mon everyday newspaper men and readers of newspapers know not this wonderful provision of nature. There are male trees and female trees, or there are fruit flowers of both sexes growing- on the ssame tree. The male flowers of the chestnut are produced in the axils of successive or alternate leaves in early June, in cylin drical catkins as long as the leaves, and sometimes longer. They appear after the leaves are nearly grown, Later than the bioom of most other trees. The fe male flowers are borne in four-pointed burrs on stiff pikes which grow from the axils of the leaves on the extended shoot. They are thus developed later and on younger wood than the male blossoms. Very rarely ie trees of the American chestnut have the habit of maturing fruit from all, or nearly all, of the female flowers along the entire spike. There are European and Japanese chestnuts in our markets, and they used to have preference over the Amer ican product, but during the las.t ten years the foreign chestnuts have been almost driven from our markets by the cultivation and extensive marketing of our own growths. The imported trees and seedlings have been killed by our severe winters, and the trees which na ture intended for American growth re tain their natural precedence. But these men of science would give us so much information of a technical character that we would become con fused in the presence of the harmless and nutritious, as well as palatable, nut food, and we will simply take their word for;-the attested fact that they are good fcjr our healthy good for our stomachs, good for oursystems, and take them home for preparation and consumption.

IN BRITISH AMERICA. Canada expects a population of G,000, 000 in its census returns next year. Anticosti island, in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, though owned by a French man, is under the British flag and sub ject to the Canadian laws. "The Canadians are far ahead of us in the matter of packing fruit for ex port," says a Maine business man, "and consequently they have less trouble in disposing of their fruit." Political buttons cannot be worn in Canada during the heat of a campaign. This is due to a clause in the dominion franchise act which says that no person shall exhibit any sign of his political faith after the official nominations are made. TRADE AND INDUSTRY.
