Babytown is the odd name given to
a little Pennsylvania hamlet of less
than a dozen small houses on the road
from Hartsville to lvyland, up in
Bucks countty. A stage coach passes
through there once a day, and an in

asked the driver how it received its
queer name. "Several years ago," was
the reply, "there were eight houses,
and during that year a baby was born
in each house. Before that the place
had no regular name, but since then it
has always been called Babytown. It's
a good name, too, and the natives seem
to live up to it. Ever3' year the occur

has more babies according to its popu

If the history and- experience of the
last twenty years have taught us any
thing, it should be that we meed to
strike hard and often at our insect
and fungous pests. There are some
men that oppose all attempts at legis
lation to exterminate such pests, and
generally, if their motives are sought
out, it is found that they are to be
hurt in their property by the legisla
tion In question that they have goods
to put on the market that they do not
want inspected, or else they want to
escape the expense and annoyance of
InspecUon. The policy of letting
things alone always finds advocates.
But with Insect and fungous pests
the careful farmer and fruit grower is
largely at the mercy of his nearest
neighbor. What advantage is it for
a man with a plum orchard to cut out
every sign of black-knot as it appears,
if his neighbor on the windward side
Is to be permitted to have an orchard
that is half dead with black-knot? The
officers of the state should have full
power to go into any orchard and rid
it of dangerous parasites, if the owner
of such orchard, after due warning,
does not attend to it himself. The
whole community Is interested in this,
as much the man that consumes fruit
as the man that raises it It is for
the interest of the community that as
much produce be raised as can be con
sumed, that the prices may place it
within the reach of all. Every state
should have a thorough quarantine
against pests as yet outside its bor
ders, and the national law in this re
gard should be made as stringent as
can be enforced.
We are all the time bringing trees
and plants from foreign countries.
With them are likely to be introduced
pests that are new to us, or have as
yet obtained only a slight foothold
here. In the country from which these
pests come there are other parasites
that keep them in check. On their
Introduction into this country the
parasite is often introduced with the
insect we do not want, and the latter
multiplies beyond all experience with
it in its home. The writers on ento
mology assert that some of our worst
pests could have been stamped out by
the expenditure of a few thousands of
dollars, if that expenditure had been
'made within a year or two after the
insect was introduced. It is a mistake
to suppose that these pests spread
rapidly all of them. Some are very
slow in extending the limits of their
visitations. An example of this is seen
in the gypsy moth; which is still con
fined to Massachusetts. Another illus
tration is the imported elm leaf beetle,
which has as yet hardly passed the
We do not find it at all difficult to

to destroy hundreds of millions of dol
lars' worth of property.
' Horticultural Observations.
A gentleman last week called at the
office of the Farmers' Review asking
what should be done with a cherry or
chard that had become infested with
black-knots. The farm on which Is tbe
cherry orchard menUoned is in Penn
sylvania and the owner has been west
for fifteen years. During that Ume he
has rented the farm and the orchard.
He now finds that his orchard is a
mass of black-knots. The advice was
given him to cut down the orchard and
burn all, and not to put either a plum
or cherry orchard on its old site. Even
ground under such an orchard be
comes dangerous as a producer ol
spores from fallen parts of the knots.
a a a
The fate of this orchard illustrates
the result of ignorance in handling
such orchards or in fact any orchard
or farm crop. Had the ones that
rented the place known or understood
the nature of black-knot, it could have
been stopped in its first stage. The
knots need never have been allowed to
ripen and become sources of the pro
duction of new spores. These knots
and the limbs with them on should
have been removed with -care and
burned. Fortunately a law has Just
been passed in Pennsylvania that com
pels owners of such orchards to re
move trees badly infested with black
knot and to cut off and burn limbs
with black-knots on them. It seems
a pity that it should be necessary to
pass such, and they are an index of the
Ignorance of the people, but if men
will not of themselves remove such
centers of contagion, the law must
come in and do its part, till such time
as we become more fully civilized.
The American fruit exhibit at Parts

of horticulture since he was a boy. He
has occupied leading positions in the
state horticultural society, having been
for several years secretary of it He
has traveled extensively through the
fruit regions of the United States
studying their conditions relative to
horticulture. He has been and still is
one of the most powerful friends in
the Illinois senate, of the University
of Illinois and the agricultural col
lege, having been the introducer in the
senate of Illinois of many of the bills
appropriating money for those insti

Evolatle eC the Tile Drala.
The tile drain in its perfecUon did
not come at once. It is the result of
gradual development we might' say
of evoluUon. Man first attempted to
drain wet land by throwing stones
into a ditch, coveriug them with
branches of trees and faggots, and
covering that combination with dirt
This method was evidently used ex
tensively and for a long period. In
time some smart fellow found that
three poles laid together would give
a fairly good drain, as they left a
space in the center. They had only
to be covered with grasses to keep out
the dirt, and required but a small
ditch for their recepUon. One wonders
if there was not a good deal of trouble
about joining the ends. Some one Im
proved on this method by making the
hole in the middle greater. This was
done by splitting the three poles and
having the' split sides touch each other
t Ua edges, forming a triangle. After
that men got to laying two parallel
walls of stone and covering them with
fat rocks. We may be sure that these
stone drains were at first small. Cor
It has taken men a, long time to lad
out that drains should be of good slse.
These stone drains are still extensive
ly constructed in countries where
stones are plentiful, even in our own
New England states. The first tile
drains were primitive. The tiles were
made like an inverted U, and were
placed on the smooth mud, having no
other bottom. The edges of the tiles
were pressed into the mud, and the
whole drain thus easily became un
even. It is no wonder, then, that the
next step was to make a tile with a
lapping Worsn-Eatea Maples.
Shall worm-eaten maples be tapped
this spring? This question is being
asked so frequently and so earnestly
that the following opinion is given in
reply by the Vermont experiment sta
tion: Whether or not to top will depend
upon circumstances of which the sugar-maker
is the best Judge. His de
cision should be influenced by the fol
lowing considerations. The sugar is
the reserve food of the tree stored
last season to feed the buds this com
ing spring. The amount of sugar
taken from an ordinary maple tree by
tapping Is from 2 to 4 per cent of its
total sugar content This is so small
a fraction as usually to cause no ap
preciable loss to the tree. But if the
tree has been so badly eaten by worms
during the past seasons as to have its
life endangered, it might be unde
sirable to make even this small drain
which would somewhat decrease the
chances of life for the tree.
It is to be remembered, however. In
this connection that all of the stored
sugar was manufactured in the green
leaves last season. Now if those leaves
were eaten by the. worms there would
be proportionately less sugar in the
sap, and In case the damage to the
foliage was really serious the sap will
be of so low quality as regards sugar
content that It will not pay to tap
the trees in any case. On the other
hand, if there is enough sugar present
to make tapping profitable, then there
is enough so that the removal of the
2 to 4 per cent will not appreciably
affect the tree.
It is believed, therefore, that the
safest way for one who is in doubt is
to determine the quality of the sap
from his trees, selecting several rep
resentative trees and taking samples
from these before tapping the remain
der. If the sap is of good quality he
may safely tap. If, however, it is of
poor quality that Is, deficient in
sugar it will be both unsafe and un
profitable to tap. The directions may
oe tersely put thus: Tap if there is
sugar enough to make it pay to do so.
It is rare that farmers' stables arc
constructed with the three-fold idea ol
giving proper light, proper ventilation
and proper drainage. Any one of these
defects is likely to cause much suffer
Ing to the animals and loss to the farm
er. If the stable is too dark, the eye
sight of the animals is injured, and
the same is true when the light comes
in in doubtful rays from this crevice
and from that Even light from a
dirty, small window obscured with
cob webs is not of sufficient quality
or quantity to give the light needed
for the development and health of the
eyes. Stables that are built compact
ly with light and that high up are
generally also poorly ventilated, and
the bottom part of the barns or sta
bles become a pit to catch and hold all
the bad odors, including the carbonic
acid gas from the lungs of the ani
mals. If, in addition, the drainage
is poor the odors are increased, for
me urine remains in the stable and
throws off ammonia. It is a wonder
that animals can live at all in some
of the barns and stables in which they
are kept all winter. Stables should be
constructed on high ground where pos
sible, that the drainage problem may
be reduced to its smallest proportions.
If a stable has to be constructed on
the level, great care should be taken
to see that it is perfectly drained, and
that the drain is not clogged up and
the urine forced back in wet weath
er. If the drainage is noor the onlv
alternative is to use a large quantity
of absorbent- material, by the assist
ance of which the urine may be taken
up and removed. Even in stables that
have good drainage absorbents should
be used to a considerable extent
To Sell Animals.
Buyers of animals are to a very
large extent influenced by their first
impressions. This may not be strictly
true of the professional horse buyers,
but most of our horses and other ani
mals are sold to men that are not pro
fessional buyers. So, much does the
appearance influence buyers that the
professional horse buyers make a point
of picking up poor looking but val
uable animals and putUng them in
shape to bring the most money. Some
times a few hundred weight of corn
put onto a horse has brought a buy
er that made the operation exceeding
ly profitable. There is no reason why
the farmer should not make a special
effort to put his sale stock in extra
fine condition. A clean stable and in
viting surroundings have a decider! in-
fluence in biasing the opinion of the
woum-oe purcnaser. If a horse is to
be sold time spent in grooming him till
his coat shines will be time well spent
The fat that the farmer can nut nn
his ribs will be sold at a fancy price."
The same applies with equal force to
cattle, and the well-fed, well-carded
animal, kept in a clean, airy stable will
sen tor an advance over the good anl
mal that is not so cared for.
Tapplag Staple Trees,
Theoretically the tapping of normal
maple trees does not noticeably reduce
their vitality or interfere with their
growth. But the fact that many maple
trees have died after being ravaged two
or three seasons by caterpillars shows
that their vitality must be reduced by
the work of the insects, says M. V.
Slingerland in Rural New Yorker. And
in case the trees do not put out a vig
orous second leafage in the fall, It
would seem wise not to tap them in
the spring. The drouth was so great
in many sections during the past sum
mer that doubtless many of the tree
which were defoliated by the caterpil
lars were unable to develop a full sec
ond crop of leaves. In brief, then, it
wonld seem best not to tap tbe trees
which put out a scanty crop of leaves,
and one should at least hesitate before
tapping trees which did put out a very
vigorous crop. And yet it is doubtful
if in either case the tapping of the
trees would noUceably hasten the
death of the trees. The amount of sap
obtained from such trees next spring
would probably be less, and possibly
of a different' quality, from that ob
tained from normal trees which had
not suffered from the caterpillars.

In less than fifty years we shall
have liquid air engines that will drive
through distance at 200 miles an hour,
prophesies a New York writer. This
will necessitate straight tracks. The
Pennsylvania railroad, for example,
between New York and Philadelphia,
will be as straight as the alleged road
from St Petersburg to Moscow which
the czar surveyed on a piece of trac
ing paper with a foot rule and a pen
cil mark. We shall travel from one
city to the other in less than half an
hour. We shall have an air trunk
line from the Atlantic to the Pacific,
which will enable a New Yorker to
reach San Francisco in fifteen hours.
"Airships will be as common fifty
years hence," he continues, "as stage
ccaches were half a century ago. They
will be operated by trolley. Ships
will be provided with machinery that
will receive momentum from electric
stations along the route, say, 150 miles
apart. There will be no limit to speed.
We shall go to Chicago in two hours."

"Dear Sir Pe-ru-ha has been my
salvation. It has given me back a
beautiful voice, a gift of God; it has
brought me once more to my old pro
fession. I can talk now, and sing,
where before I could scarcely whisper.
Can you wonder at my delight? I
wish every person who is suffering as
I suffered might know Pe-ru-na. Only
those who have been afflicted can ever
know the intense satisfaction and
gratitude that comes with a complete
cure. My voice was completely gone.
April 15 I felt so elated over the res
toration of my voice that I inserted an
advertisement in The Star for vocal
pupils. The advertisement, which cost
me 65 cents, brought me five pupils,
and that was the beginning of my pres
ent large class. Yours gratefully,
A congestion, inflammation or ulcera
tion of the mucous membrane, whether
of the head, stomach, kidneys, or other
organ, is known to the medical pro
fession as catarrh. It is known by
different names, such as dyspepsia,
Bright's disease, female complaint,
diarrhoea, bronchitis, consumption
and a host of other names. Wherever
there is a congested mucous mem
brane there is cdtarrb, acute or

When George Wyndham entered the
British war office, a little more than
a year ago, he did not have a gray hair
and now his hair is silvery white. A
similar change was noticed in the ap
pearance of Sir George Trevelyan. In
1882. when he became chief tecretary
for Ireland, immediately after the as
sassination of Lord Frederick Caven
dish, he was described by Mr. Parnell
as having hair of raven blackness.
Three months afterward his hair had
become as white as snow.
The famous "man milliner," Worth,
is brought to life again in Richard
Whiteing's "Fashionable Paris," in the
April Century. Mr. Whiteing once in
terviewed the great modiste on the
subject of starting the fashions. Under
the republic, said M. Worth, "the.
fashions were not started at all; they
simply occurred." But under the em
pire, it was simple enough.
He who is never guilty of follies Is
not as wise as he imagines.
