checks its growth but so weakens it
that it is often brokon by heavy wind

branches and by accumulations of saw
dustlike castings at tho entrance of
tho burrows. Tho discovery of this
evidence, says tho now bulletin, No.

Tho larger ones may bo cut back bo

that has been cut away should bo
promptly burned, in order to destroy
tho caterpillars within. This precau
tion also should bo followed with all
branches that havo fallen to tho
ground after windstorms. Wherever
tho trees aro so badly Injured that
there is littlo hopo of their recovery.
It is best to take them out and prompt

which aro only slightly affected, and
especially in tho case of largo and
valuable trees, bisulphid of carbon
can bo used effectively. It is injected
into tho openings of tho burrows with

Warm Days During Spring

Also Cause Much Damage.
Often tho trunk and largor branches
of fruit trees turn brown in tho spring.
This is duo to sun scald. Tho warm
days during tho winter and spring will
cause tho sap in the trunk to flow,
which is injurious to tho tree. This
Injury can bo controlled through tho
shading of tho trunk.
It is a good plan to erect boards or
burlap sacks on tho south side of tho
trunk of tho tree; this will shado and
provont tho bright days of tho sun
from starting tho sap to flow.
Another injury that is found on
young trees, especially, is caused by
mice. Tho mice gnaw tho bark ou
small trees around which there is a
considerable amount of grass or straw.
To reduce this loss it is simply neces
sary to remove tho straw from tho
baso of tho tree. If this is dono there
will not bo much loss.

many farms. Good crops and good

Two ldO-acro farms in southern Min

HARMFUL HABITS IN
THE POULTRY FLOCK
Fowls Will Pull Each Other's
Feathers and Sometimes
(By C. S. ANDERSON, Colorado Agricul
tural College, Fort Collins, Colo.)
Did your chickens over turn canni
bal? Many a poultryraan has discov
ered old biddy denuded of feathers
and was at a loss to account for hor
suddon lack of modesty. Tho feathers
wero pulled out by her pen mates,
and often tho pin feathers wero pick
ed out as fast as they appeared. When
this vice becomes established, chick

whoso body tho blood is onco started!
Too- picking is a kindred evil, but
only nmong young chicks. Thoy liko
tho tasto of blood and an injured too
is a sourco of nttractlon.
CIoso confinement and unbalanced
rations aro tho usual causes of such
vices. Both grown fowls and young
chicks need green food, meat food
and grit, and if theso aro provided,
along with plenty of oxerclso, tho
conditions favorable for tho forma

Tho best plan Is to kill tho con
firmed feather pullers that go wild
at tho sight nnd tasto of blood. In
flocks kept under close confinement,
tho malo birds aro liable to havo their
neck feathers pulled. It will bo found
beneficial to rub tho naked necks of
such victimB with carbolated vaseline.
Avoid Moldy Feed.
Do not feed tho sheep moldy feed
as it is of no benefit to them. It has
a tendency to bring about scours
which puts tho Hhoop out of condition,

BEST SPRAY FOR GREEN BUGS

Tho npplo plant louse, aphid, ot

spray for theso insects is a tobacco
extract containing 40 per cent or more
of nicotine in tho rorm of nicotlno sul

market, notably Black' Loaf No. 40.
A half pint of this in GO gallons of
water is very effective. If this ma

to bo obtained on tho market, a homo
mado preparation may bo usod, but its
qualities aro not reliable. This homo
made spray is made as follows:

The commercial product may bo

or arsenate of lead plus llmo sulphur.
If tho tobacco is used alone, it is bet

of three to five pounds for every 50
gallons of tho spray.

SAVING THE GIRDLED TREES
Injury Wrought by Pigs Rectified by

(By J. A. IDALU Illinois.)
About two years ago a friend had
her four applo trees, two years
planted, girdled by somo pigs that sho
had turned in tho same lot. Thoy had
eaten tho bark to tho roots and up
for a foot. She nsko'd mc if I could
save them. I told hor it was doubt

thought best. As bridging was not
practical, I cut them off closo to tho
ground and insortod two grafts from
tho top of each treo into tho root tho
beat I could, waxed them thoroughly,
and gavo them protection. Every
graft grow. Tho well-developed roots
caused them to grow wonderfully, and

Occasionally wo soo oil sprays rec
