SAN JOSE SCALE IS

Gasoline Englno Sprayer.
(By G. M. HKNTLRY.)
Parnmount of all tho insects caua
3ng loss to tho horticulturists and
nurserymen Is a small scalo Insect no
largor, when mature, than tho head of
a. common pin. This Insect la tho San
Joso scalo (pronounced San Ho-zay),
Aspldlotus pornlcloaua. No Insect
yeat haa received more attention and
Jiaa had more written concerning it.
Nearly every experiment station in
tho land has published ono or more
"bulletins aa to ita life history and
lavages, and remedies for its control.
Newspapers, Journals and maga
zines have issued volumes calling tho
attention of fruit growers to tho ef
fects of this scalo peat and oncour
aging legislation for its control.
Those who have heeded this admoni
tion of the entomologista and fol
lowed their recommendations have
(satisfied themselves that In splto of
tho enormous damage done by this
scale, there aro methods which, If
properly pursued, will reduce Injury
to tho minimum. Tho careless, un
heeding grower who has scale-Infested
stock and has dono nothing by way of
controlling tho peBt suffers heavy
losses and eventually is compelled to
.go out of business (bo ho horticul
turist or nurseryman) or is advised
to start anew.
Perhaps tho worst feature of an at
tack of San Jose scale is tho difficulty
of recognizing tho insect, due to its
size and color; it Is about 1-1G of an
Inch iir. diameter when mature, and
Jn color it resembles tho bark of tree
or plant infested. If there is a very
liad infestation an ashy-gray appear
ance Is noticeable; again one may de
termine tho presence of scalo by
crushing many of them, when an oily
appearance is noticed.
If a female scalo be carefully
turned over with a knife or a pin,
there will bo found underneath a flat,
yellowish insect, looking very much
like a small piece of rich butter. It
Las no logs, no wings, no eyes, no
antennae (feelers), nor a distinct
Adult Malo San Jose Scale.
Jiead, but it does have a long, thread
llko sucking proboscis, with which It
iores through tho bark of trees into
tho young, growing wood and draws
out the sap.
Early in tho spring the adult fe
malo begins to give birth to living
young, continuing to do so for about
six weeks after which she dlos. Tho
young scalo has legs, antennae and
oyes, It moves about over tho twigs
for some hours, then settles down and
begins to push its mouth parts slow
ly Into tho bark to tho sap beneath.

A scalo-llko covering now 'begins to

In a bucket or tub of water a few

Lucky Congressman Receives $12,500 Back Salary

over and over again all tho ragtag and bobtnll testlmoit?, stand up undor
cross-examinations that had their origin in Gehenna, and pay for tho stenog

One of Gill's witnesses made n statement which resulted In a cross
examination which coat Gill Just $200. It wbb tho plainest refutation of that
old Ho "talk la cheap" that you could find in a day'a Jo'Hrnoy. Talk "wasn't
cheap to Gill, who would sit thoro and seo his $3,500 rnnnlng out llko tho
sand in an hour glass. Ho had tho thing down so lino thfct ho know tho vory
word which drained tho last cent from hla bank account and mado him

When that tragic word wbb spoken, Gill went out and got a Job. The Job
wan in a glass works in or near Alexandria. Also hla son, Joo, wont out and
hooked a Job playing a violin in a cheap theater. Joo la a natural musician,
yet tho beBt ho could do was to snatch a dollar or two new and then.
That's why many of tho men In the houso voted fnr GUI. Thoy know

How a Western Senator "Ruined" Mis Silk Hat
A WESTERN senator, who Is scnlng his first term In congress, camo to
Washington well-informed upon matters of politics and of general inter
est, but rather green when it came to questions of conventional attire. Ho
visited a tailor and ordered a now out
fit of clothes, which Included a full
dross eult and a dinner coat, both of
them articles of apparel which up to
that time had never graced his figure.
Tho tailor fixed him up with a proper
outfit, advised him as to tho cut of
tho vests and coats and told him that
with tho full dross suit ho must wear
a silk hat
In the senator's homo town a high
silk hat worn on tho main street
would have cscitcd widespread com
ment and probably would have served aa tho target for tho town marksmen.
But renllzlng that ho must adapt himself to tho now conditions and must
uphold his dignity as a senator, he proudly added tho hat to his wardrobe.
At the next White House reception tho senator appeared In full regalia.
Nono of tho deuco-spot statesmen from tho offoto East had anything on him
when it came to comentlonal attlro. His coat was right, ho had tho proper
kind of vest and his ready-made white tlo looked aa good as anyone's. Hut
on his way homo he walked Instead of taking a cab it bogan to rain nnd
before ho reached hla house his fine silk hat was a bedraggled and aorry
looking affair. Tho next day ho stopped to tell tho tailor hla troubles.
"Well. I ruined that fine allk hat last night," ho said. "I went to tho
White Houso reception nnd on my way homo tho hat was entirely spoiled."
"What happened to it?" asked the tailor.
"It got wet," said the senator, "thoroughly drenched. It looka llko tho
dickens and the fur la nil rubbed tho wrong way."
"Woll, call up tho hatter and have him send after it and iron it out, and
it will be all right," said the tailor.
"Why, can it bo fixed up? It can? I thought If it got wot it was gone
for good. Sure, I'll have it fixed, for I want to got ready for tho next recop
Hon." And tho western atresman went away happy.
Senator Kern of Indiana Loses His Pay Check
SENATOR KEUN of Indiana the other day called at the offico of tho senate
disbursing clerk, thern to cash his monthly pay-check. Ho reached into
his right-hand, lower vest pocket, and tho check was not thoro.

lost my safety vault koy out of this pockot," continued tho sorrowful Kern.
"Then I lost $240 In bills nnd change out of it. Now my pay check almost
$700 1b gone, too.
"It'll teach mo a lqason, though. I'll buy a purao and havo a pocket for
it mado in my underwear."
Tho clerk broke in hero to assure tho disconsolate senator that payment
on tho check could be stopped and a now vouchor Issued. Kern thanked
him; tho vouchor was '.Bsucd and tho money pushed across tho countor. Tho
senator pocketed it and wandered away.
"Holy Moaea!" said tho disbursing clerk to his aBalatant. "Did you soo

"Whoro Senator Kern put all that money." '
"Whero'd ho put it?"
