SILK WORMS.
How They Should be Fed aud
Hatched.
CHINESE AND ITALIAN METHODS
WHICH HAVE BKBN ADOPTED WITH
SUCCESS.
It is 01 the first importance in the
production of silk that one in partic
ular of the many species of mul
berry should be cultivated and that
it should be so favorably situated in
regard to climate that' its foliage
will be in readiness for feeding the
young worms when they are° first
hatched from the egg. The species
best adapted is the white mulberry
(moms alba). The extreme lateness
of season at which the black mul
berry produces its leaves prevents
its employment generally, while it
is said that this tree does not bear
the loss of its leaves as well as the
other. In some parts of China the
silkworms are easily reared upon the
trees in the open air, and so little
have they a tendency to wander
away from the place ot their birth, if
food be at hand, that it only requires
a warm and dry atmosphere to bring
them to perfection. In other coun
tries, however, it is thought desira
ble to raise them in properly ar
ranged buildings where they are
supplied with leaves gathered from
day to day. In tropical countries
the eggs hatch readily at the proper
time by the natural heat, but artifi
cial heat is almost always required in
Southern Europe. Formerly the
heat of fermenting dung was used,
and the warmth of the human body
was found servicable, the eggs being
carried in little bags in the bosom of
the cultivator. The present custom
is to hatch them by stove heat, be
ginning with a temperature of 64
degrees, F., which is gradually in
creased through ten days to 82 de
grees, at which it is maintained un
til the eggs are hatched. Experi
ence has shown that the operation is
facilitated by washing the eggs in
the first place with clean water, and
some cultivators also wash them in
wine, the use of which is, however,
questionable. Water has been found
useful in removing a certain gummi
ness and other impurities from the
ggs, which would otherwise impede
the hatching. When the silkworms
have been regularly developed aB
thus described it is usual to place
above the trays upon which they re
pose little contrivances in which the
caterpillar can spin. The contriv
ance used by the Italians consists of
a number of thin slips of wood
about an inch and a half broad, all
cut sufficiently long to reach across
the trays. They are cut, at inter
vals of an inch, half through so that
one will fit into the other, and when
complete they all form a Benes of
cells which, set in a tray, form the
best receptacles for the silkworm to
spin in. When not in use the whole
arrangement can be compressed into
a very small compass for conven
ience of storage. In other coun
tries the weavers use little cones of
paper, or small twigs, among which
the cocoons are spun.
In feeding the worms great care
should be taken to so distribute the
food on the shelves or in the trays
that the insects will not crowd to
gether, and to prevent this the most
careful cultivators chop the leaves
small and strew them very evenly
about. Care should also be taken to
keep the worms of the hatch from
mixing with those of another, unless
of exactly the same age, otherwise
the stronger insects will deprive the
younger ones of their food. Many
other niceties of attention are re
quired, which altogether render the
successful rearing of silkworms a
matter of much anxiety and labor.

bong Book, by tbo well known musical
author. W.O. Perkins and published by

Boston. It is well printed, in convenient
form, and contains 128 pages, over one hun
dred of which are devoted to music adapt
ed to new words, suitable for all kinds of
gatherings where temperance music is re
quired. /here are several pages of hvmns
adapted to old familiar tunes, for gospel
temperance meetings, and other occasions
where all wish to join in the singing. The
remaindered the book is devoted to the
Odea and Responses, and the accompauv
mg music, of the Temple of Honor, Good

Temperance Organizations. The most of the
music is easy aud will be readily learned,
but there are several pieces suitablo
