L.ULD TOGETHER AND OY POMP .pray Applied In Growing Season Will Kill Trees-hould Be Used During Winter. On account of the resistance of these insects to spray materials it is impracticable to apply remedial meas tires during the growing season. A pray that will kill these pests in most rases will either kill or seriously in iure the tree if applied during the growing season. For this reason these sprays are given only in winter when the trees are leafless and dormant. Spray pumps an( spray materials are unusually high in price at the present time. Many people who fool that they can not buy a Pump at the present price could no c'oubt arrange to bor row or rent one from some one in the neighborhood. In other cases neighbors may prefer to club together and buy a pump to be used by the various members of the club. In buy ing a spray pump for orchard use pur chase nothing less than a good bar rel pump. These vary in construe tion, some having more desirable fea tures for certain purposes than oth ers.

An tlension rod can be made from one tourtl inch iron pipe having standardI treads cut at each end.

This div ision used the following method which s adapted from Mr. Stewart's bulle . of the Pennsylvania Experiment station: ' A one and one-half or two inch steamn pipe is fitted to a steam bqiler, horizontally with a gate valve at the 01nd so that the escape of steam can he iregulated.

DRIED BLOOD IS EFFECTIVE When Applying a Top Dresser Appli cation Should Be Made When Blades Are Dry. The topdressing of small grain usu. ally adds materially to the yield. During these times when the in crease in production is so vitally im portant the proper use of nitrate of soda, sulphate of ammonia or dried blood as a topderssing for grain should prove very effective. At pres ent prices the use of nitrate of soda and sulphate of ammonia should prove most profitable, as they are consider. ably cheaper per pound of actual ni trogen than dried blood. The addition of topdressers to oats has been particularly effective at the Coast Station: dried blood applied at the rate of 120 pounds per acre show ed an average increase of 24.6 bushels of oats per acero when applied in addi tion to 600 pounds of 8.4.4 fertilizer per acre; sulphate of ammonia at the rate of 75 pounds per acre, 34.0 bush els increase; and, nitrate of soda at the rate of 100 pounds per acre show ed an average increase of 20.7 bushels per acre. At the Pee Dee Station the use of nitrate of soda as a topdresser for oats, that had been fertilized at plan' lng time, applied early at. the rate or 100 pounds per acre has shown an average increase- (r 19.5 bushels of oats per acre, a la' ' application of the same amount of ' "ate of soda show ed an average iner ,e of 17.0 bushels per acre: while ''-uble application made at both tim- showed an aver age increase of 22 bushels per acre. These results in(d >ate that an early topdressing at the rate of 100 pounds of nitrate pf soda or its equivalent of sulphate of ammonia, pounds, or the equivalent of dried blood. 12) pounds, will give most economical re sults. The early applientions are made about March 1st. Vhen applying a iCpdresser the application should be made when the blades of the plants are dry to prevent scalding. Generally speaking, larger increases are obtained from topdressers w'here the grain has not been fertilized. Under this condition at the Coast Sta tion 120 pounds of dried blood showed a gain of 38.8 bushels of oats. 75 pounds of sulphate of ammonia 45.0 bushels, and 100 pounds of nitrate of soda 39.4 bushels. However, the total yield is generally greater when fer tilizer is applied before planting and Iatelr a topd)(ressing is used as indi cated. The use of topdressers seems1 to be more effective on light sandy soils than 01n thle heavlier phases. T. E. KETTT. Chief, Division of Soils and Chemistry.
