Horticulture HARM DONE BY BARK BEETLE Like Other Members of Their Family They Always Attack Weakened and Starved Trees. In peach orchards from New York, southward to Virginia and westward' to Michigan the peach tree bark bee tle lias given occasional trouble since about 1850. It Is a hard-shelled in Bect about % inch long, and when it emerges from the tree leaves tiny holes like small shot holes in the bark, lienee it is sometimes called the shot-hole borer. The full-grown beetles appear in early spring, burrow through the bark to the sapwood. and lay their eggs The larvae soon hatch and make little burrows of their owns in various directions. In about one month they emerge and start a second brood. The numerous burrows eventually girdle and kill the trees. Like other members of their family, they rarely attack healthy trees, but promptly recognize weakened and starved trees, which soon show the gummy exudations at points of at tack. This peculiarity suggests that orchard trees should be kept in the best possible vigor, and all that show serious Infestation should be prompt ly cut out and burned at once, so as to destroy all the insects under the bark. Delay is sure to increase the risk to other trees from increased Ak Peach Tree Bark Beetle. numbers of insects. If only slight in festations are noticed all trees should be closelj examined to determine tire original source of weakness, and should be stimulated with applications of fertilizer, and the trunk kept cov ered with whitewash to which parts green has been added. Strong whale oil soapsuds with a little crude car bolic add also aid the effectiveness of whitewash. A recent bulletin by II. F. Wilson of the United States department of agriculture recommends severely trim ming hack trees that are seriously Injured and the application of farm yard manure and commercial ferti lizer prior to the application of a thick coat, of whitewash to the trunks and limbs three times a year; first, in the last week of March; second, during the second week in July; and third, about October 1. For apparent ly healthy but sllg. t'y attacked trees, Mr. Wilson reeomm ids rhe white washing and the ren ivul of all dead limbs and trees, not only in the or chard, but in the !a ighborhoad, so us to destroy the breeding places. KEEPING PE3T: FROM TREES Injury by Rabbits and Mice May Be Avoided by Fastening Screen Around Trunk. To keep rabbits and mice away from the trees, take a length of plain wire screen; form it around the trunk of the tree, fasten the ends together and push it down an inch or so into the /I. 1 X ■ ■ To Protect Trees. soil. A good way to fasten the ends of the screen is to lap them over abo’at an inch and run a straight wire down through the openings, like ma king a seam with a needle in a piece of cloth. T! can be easily removed. “ — Just Published Webster’* NEW INTERNATIONAL Dictionary, (G. & C. Merriam Co., Springfield, Mass, surpasses the old International as much as that book exceeded its predecessor. On the old foundation a new superstructure has been built.

The number of terms defined has been more than doubled. The etymology, synonyms, pronunciation, have received un sparing scholarly labor. The language of English literature for over seven centuries, the terminology of the arts and sciences, and the every-day speech of street, shop, and house hold, are presented with fullness and clearness.
