THE CODLING MOTH.
Intcre.tlnff Experience In Spraying
With Wblte Ar.enle.
It is doubtful whether the codi ng
moth is more destructive in any other
apple growing region than in Utah.
The high altitude and dry climate si bin
to furnish ideal conditions for thisl'n
seet. Not only are apples and pears at
tacked, as elsewhere, but peaches and

plums are sometimes seriously i l;i n
aged by these pests. The following by
the horticulturist of the state station
is therefore of especial interest:!. This
year (ISO!.)) our success in combating
the tiny foe of the apple grower lias
been almost complete. There was much
to indicate that there ought to be at
least four sprayings for summer and
six for winter apples. White arsenic
was found to be more effective, than
pans green, even though the latter was
pure. The writer is well convinced
that white arsenic is a much better
poison for codling moth than pans
green, even when the latter is unadiil
terated. This formula has been used here
with very marked success: White ar
senic, one pound; unslacked lime, two
pounds; water, three gallons.
To prepare for spraying mix the ar-
Fenie with the lime while tlu latter ;
beiug slacked with a little of the wa
ter. When the lime and arsenic are
reduced to the consistency of efcimi,
add the remaining water and boil the
whole for an hour. Put this in 2:n
iillons of water, and the spray is
ready for use.
The foregoing directions must tie
very carefully followed or the foliage
will be seriously burned by Hie arsenic

June 21 and 22 the orchard was'!
ed the second time, as the finding
moths nnd eggs indicated that worms
might soon lie expected.
It is claimed by entomologists that
larvau of codling moths come in broods,
one brood in the east and from tvo to
three in the west in a season. 11 this
Is the ease, it Is hard to account fcr the
behavior of the broods in this ttate.
About the 20th of July the first ipple
worms made their appearance mler
the bands on the trees, and from this
time on worms were found daily. I Jo
not believe spraying can be made ,vi h
any reference to the times the bio4s
come out. Ihe apples must be Ue.it
well covered with the poison all tie
summer.
In accordance with this theory siray
ings were made July 11 and 12, (tie

According to the dlrei ior (jf Ul),

estimated that If nitrate of soda s rat

Sulphate of l-otali.
As t'ue so'e source of n.'tiTgcn for po
tatoi's. in experiments at the khode Is
land station, high .ado, western,
black, dried blood ranked first, fallow
ed in etiicieucy by nitrate of soda and
sulphate of ammonia.
The best combination of nitrogen for
the potatoes seemed to be either two
thirds in dried blood and one-thhd in
nitrate of soda or etpial parts of nitro
gen in each of the three following forms
i-amely, dried blood, nitnTre of soda
and sulphate of ammonia.
For supplying potash high grade sul
phate of potash proved, upon tin nie
wliat acid soil, superior to muriate of
potash. After allowing for the extra
cost of the potash in the sulphate of
potash there remained a net gain of
about .f:!.-10 per acre from its use as
compared with muriate of potash.
Equal parts of potash in high grade
sulphate and In muriate of potash gave
better results than when the entire
amount was in either one of these
forms and the expense was .$1.70 less
per acre than it was where it was all
supplied in high grade sulphate of pot
ash. It is probable that the chief cause of
the inferior result from large applica
tions of muriate of potash is the
chlorine of the muriate, and that this
injury would not be particularly or
perhaps at all noticeable jf the soil con
tained sufficient quantities of carbon
ate of lime to prevent its becoming
acid.
Upon extremely acid soils, like those
frequently met with in IMiode Island,
dried blood would probably prove in
ferior to nitrate of soda. Experiments
at this station have shown that upon
such soils dried blood is but about
half as assimilable as it should be.
hand so acid as that is much too acid
for the successful production of clover
and timothy and should be limed, after
which blood will prove fully effective.
If potatoes are grown upon limed land,
the "seed" tubers should be treated
with corrosive sublimate solution.
Homemade Garden Yl'eeders.
There are some handy homemade
garden weeders for use among onions
and other plants which require a great
deal of careful weeding that no farmer
or gardener should be without. The
weeder shown by A is an excellent
tool for working among delicate plants

Sr stand erect and still do
U Villi care. Take a 25 inch
piece of iron hoop from an oil barrel,
rrrind and file one edge sharp, bend
into a triangular shape and between
open ends of triangle insert the end
of a handle of suitable length, securing
the triangle firmly on the handle at the
angle desired by using nails, screws
or small bolts. When properly made,
the triangle will have C inch sides
and 3'i inches of each end of hoop will
be left to fasten on the handles. Make
the angle of triangle to suit your
preference.
The tool shown by li Is made by
using a piece of an old saw blade or
other piece of steel often found at
hand eight Indies long, tapering from
lVa inches wide at one end to one inch
at the other. A couple of small holes
are made near the narrow end and the
piece bent in the middle so that the
wide end is at right angles to narrow
end or about pitch of a hoe. A 3
foot handle is used, the end being
ripped with a saw to receive narrow
end of weeder, which is held secure
by being riveted and a ring or ferrule
slipped on the handle. File the weeder
sharp on the end and sides, says an
Ohio Farmer correspondent who de
scribes these devices.
Clover Seed Adnlterntlon.
With the sharp advance in the price
of clover seed, the temptation to deal
ers to adulterate it Is great in order
that they may sell at a low price and
yet make their usual profit, says a re
cent agricultural circular. Low priced
'seed is frequently poor, and poor seed
Is nearly always the most expensive.
The adulteration is commonly made
by mixing in old seed which has lost
Ma large percentage of germinating pow
er or even by mixing in screenings,
'weed seeds or grass seeds, such as
imnthv. There Is no standard of qual-

foot from the nature of the plant, but

much lower cost than clover seed,

Selecting finrden Seed.
If farmers would select their largest
i.. jj. 1 ,
and plumpest pram ior , im7
could seed much less heavily than they
do and grow larger crops as well. The
same thing Is true of garden seeds.
One had better pay 1 a pound for
plump, well developed and well ripen
ed seeds than to have inferior seed
given to them. Probably seed will
average better this year than It has
some years because of the favorable
weather for ripening and curing It, but
we repeat our advice to the gardener
to test his seed by putting some of Jt
between damp cloths to see how much
will germinate before sowing, says
American Cultivator.
