Annual Loss From Cabbage Pest
NOT DIFFICULT TO CONTROL
Arsenate of Lead and Paris Green Are
Preferable to Other Poisons
Number of Sprayings Depends
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment ot Agriculture.)
Arscnlcals are being genornlly used
to control the cabbage worm. There
are now few Instances of the total de
struction of crops of cabbages as was
formerly often tho case. Neverthe
less, a conservative estimate would
place tho present unnual loss from tills
pest to cubbage alum. not Including
cauliflower and other related crops

or one-tenth the value
"H'ha cabbngo worm Is not difficult
to control,' and It should he borne In
mind thnt most other cabbage posts,
more often present than riot, will be
controlled by the same methods.
Repeated experiments hnvo shown
that arsenate of lend nnd parts green
are preferable to other arsenlculs In
common use. If pnrls green Is used,
It may bo applied either wet or dry,
preferably, however, as a spray, at the
rate of one pound to CO gallons of wa

Insect attack when they are set out
and should lie sprayed a few days later
to make sure thnt tho poison reaches
the young caterpillars before they have
burrowed far Into the heads. Other
applications should follow as Inspec
tion of plants shows thut they are nec
essary. These applications of arscnlcals can
be made with absolute safety even af
ter the lieads are formed, ns the" poison
disappears from plants almost com
pletely within two to three weeks af
ter application, and even earlier In
event of repeated or lienvy rainfall.

CONTROL OF SOIL DISEASES

With the possible exception of seea
treatment, there Is no form practice,
which, from the plant disease point of

assertion of Prof. .7. O. I.ench of tho
Colorado Agricultural college. There
are a great many plant diseases such
as wilts and root rots for which no
specific remedy is known and which
can be held In check only by the com
bined prnctlces of seed -selection, seed
treatment, and crop rotation. These
discuses become worse and worse each
year the crop Is grown In the same
soil, and ench one taking their annual

Why Exclusive Agencies
Cost More to Operate
A roofing dealer who has an exclusive
agency has no competition on his pri
vate brand.- As a result he can charge
a large profit if you'll buy.
In addition, he is usually a long distance
from his little manufacturer and must
invest more money to keep his stock up.
Now look at the Certain-teed way. Any
responsible dealer can sell Certain-teed.
Each dealer carries a small represen
tative stock. If he needs more he orders
from a nearby Certain-teed warehouse
or jobber. It usually takes only a day
or two to get it.
The result is small investment, small
storage cost, light insurance, and no

to wear out on the roof. It is guaran
