Illinois IIortlrultur.il Convention.
(From Farmers' Revlow.)
Tho fourteenth annual convention of
tho Illinois Horticultural society was
held at Kankakee recently.
In rovlcwing tho fruit lists for
Illinois a discussion aroso on the pro
tection of fruit trees from rodents. Va
rious mothod3 were advocated, among
them being fish oil nnd axle grease.
Thcro was, however, danger of using
theso too much, especially on young
trees. Instances wero given where
such trentment had resulted in the
death of tho trees. Trees ten years old
would not bo harmed by tho treat
ment An apple grower said he know
of an orchard of 2,000 young trees that
had been killed by using too much oil.
Mr. Williams had been using for
twelve years a paint mado of soap, tar,
sulphur and lime. Ho put it on the
trees with a common paint brush. It
makes a thorough glazo and will destroy
! every insect. Ho bolieves also that this
1 paint has tho tendency to protect from
I sun-scald. Tho llttlo lime, in it, when
! tho dry weather comes, turns the mass
, to a grayish color that throws oft tho
rays of tho sun and thus keeps tho bark
of the trco from cracking.
Ono man that had tried tarred paper
thought thoro was great danger from
using this, as It was not takon off early
enough In tho spring, in which case
the tar from tho paper works into the
troc. Ho had trlod paper mado out
of felt, and untarred, and found this
to work very well, if It wero but takon
off early enough In the season. Ho now
uses strong muslin, putting it on every
fall and taking it off every" spring. He
had trlod this now for-threo years.
Mr. Burnhardt expressed himself ns
cortaln that the rabbits would lot tho
trees alono ir they only had enough of
other things to oat. He had beon Bt
tlrg out treos for twanty-flvo yoars and
had never had any trouble from rabbits.
But there had always been nbout his
placo somo brushwood or trees for
them to work on. Tho scattering ot
somo kind of grain on tho ground
would servo to kcop them away from
the trees.
Mr. Augustlno suggested that there
must bo dlffcront varieties ot wild rab
bits, for tho kind thnt lived In his vlcln.

Mr. Gilbert protects his trees by using
only common wrapping paper, such as
can bo obtained In any grocery or dry
goods store. Ho tearB theso papors Into
strips eight inches wide. Theso ho
wraps around tho treo on tho bias, be
ginning near the ground, nnd stopping
twenty Inches abovo it, whero ho ties
tho paper.
A discussion aroso on tho value ot
tho yellow transparent for commercial
orchards. Somo believed It a mistake,
to plant largely of this variety on ac
count of Its poor keeping qualities.
However, when In good shape, it sells
readily, and men from Southern Illi
nois expressed great faith In Its com
mercial value.
Much tlmo was devoted to tho discus
sion of tho efficiency of spraying, and
successes and failures wero reported.
Tho prevailing opinion was that tho
failures wero duo to Ignorance in do
ing tho work. !
Question. How many havo experl- '
mented with spraying mixtures?
Twenty-seven replied affirmatively.
Question. How many recommend
Thirty-flvo votes wero cast for It, and
none against it.
The growing or small fruits was dis
cussed, and the growing of straw-berries
in hills came up. While hill culturo
gives largo, line berries, yet growers
on a large scale do not follow It, aa
It does not pay for tho extra trouble.
Tho question of fertilizers was dls
cuBsod at length. The most impor
tant point developed was that tho ex
tensive uso of barnyard manuro mndo '
It possible for tho soil to use a greater
mass of chemical fertilizers than If
It wero not used at all. Thus In tho
neighborhood of large cities the market ,
gardeners aro enabled to use immense
quantities of commercial fertilizers be
causo they also uso immense quantities
of barnyard manuro.
Mr. Morrill, of Michigan, spoke on tho
marketing of fruit. Tho first requisite
is to havo something desirable to mar
ket. Ho could not tell a man how to
market undesirable fruit. Tho great
necessity with farmers is to learn how
to co-operate in the sale of goods. The
co-operative organizations havo largely
failed for the reason that there seemed
a jealousy against any man being paid
to look after the work. He believed
tho tlmo to bo approaching when farm

being extremely offensive to all in

Unadllla, N. Y., (Special) Ono of our
substantial men here, Fred J. Joyce,
recently mndo a $2.50 Investment, nnd
considers the results worth $500 to him.
For over fifteen years Mr. Joyce was
an Inveterate smoker, nnd the tobacco
habit gained euch n hold on him thnt
It affected his nervous syatcm and
mado It Impossible for him to quit.
Upon realizing the loss of health and
money which threatened him, ho mado
many unsuccessful attempts to break
himself of tho llfc-sapplng habit, until
on a chnnco ho took No-To-Bnc, tho
great euro which has saved over 300,
000 tobacco victims. Two boxes com
pletely cured Mr. Joyce, and ho has
no desire for tobacco now whatever.

him as dizzy an when he first acquired
tho habit. He now is in the very best
physical condition, and $ouO would not
tcniot him to use tobacco again.
It is hotter to bo o cood cook or wnftrosa
than a poor tyiowriter.
