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
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

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

of the screen is to lap them over
abo’at an inch and run a straight wire
down through the openings, like ma

of cloth. T! can be easily removed.

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 reconstruction has been carried on through
many yesrs by a large force of trained workers,
under the supervision of Dr. W. T. Harris,
former United States Commissioner of Educa
tion, and reenforced by many eminent special
ists. The definitions have been rearranged and
amplified. 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.
In s: e of vocabulary, in richness of general
i information, and in convenience of consulta- j
tion, khv book sets a new mark in lexicography.
