I>etroylnK the fabbnge Worm.
Dr. Sturtevant, director of the agri
cultural experiment station at Geneva,
JS T . Y., says of his efforts to destroy
the cabbage worm:
"We have warred against them with
tobacco water, saltpetre, alcohol, bo
racic acid, bisulphide of carbon, etc.,
in various combinations, but we finally
settled upon an emulsion of kerosene
oil and soapsuds as the remedy tliaQ
all things considered, was the most
satisfactory. It appears that one
ounce of common yellow, hard soap,
one pint of kerosene oil, and one and
one-half gallons of water, well mixed
and stirred, and applied by means of a
rose from a watering pot destroys all
worms that become thoroughly wet
with the mixture, and does not injure
the plant. Care must, however, be
taken to keep the ingredients thor
oughly mixed in the pot, for if tho oil
is permitted to rise to the surface, so
that it will pass out upon a few plants
it will prove fatal to the few, while
the remainder xvill not receive enough
of the oil to destroy the worms."
Texture of Sofia.
Soils differ not only in chemical
properties, but in physical character
istics. In respect to texture soils
range all the way from coarse pebbles
to the finest and most tenacious of
Speaking in a general way, soils best
adapted for agriculture are those
which consist of mixtures of sand
with a moderate quantity of clay and
a little vegetable matter. When sand
or other coarse material
the soil, as all farmers know, is easy
till and will grow a great variety of
crops, but it is deficient in absorbent
and retentive powers.
On the other hand, when clay is in
excess the soil becomes too heavy to
to till and will grow fewer crops; it is
retentive of water, is cold and does
not facilitate the chemical changes in
the soil and the manure placed in it
necessary to prepare proper food for
Clay lands are tho most difficult to
work; sandy soils the most easy. Less
work can be done in a day with the
same power on clay and heavy soils
than on light, sandy ones, and this
consideration ought to be borne in
mind when stox-king a farm with work
ing animals and when making esti
mates in the cost of growing crops.—

Sweet cream just removed from the
milk does not churn as readily as older
cream that has been "ripened," if any
one knows exactly what that term sig
nifies, says the New England Farmer
Cream that is too warm sometimes
gives trouble, but if it is much too
cold it is very sure to. Yery thin
cream is longer in coming than cream
that is moderately firm, but a very fre
quent cause of delay in bringing but
ter is from filling the churn too nearly
full of cream. Something depends
too, upon the character of the churn.
A churn that agitates the cream with
great violence, as when the floats are
small, and are revolved at a high rate
of speed, is likely to tear the cream to
pieces and beet it into a froth, like
eggs under a beater. The churn, how
ever, is usually less at fault than the
cream or the operator. If cream is
churned very slowly there may be so
little friction that it will never come.
By slow turning the temperature may
change so much during the operation
as to prevent success. If a plain box
or barrel churn is filled very full, and
the cream swells, the revolutions may
go on without agitating the cream at
all, and if the churn has a Crank and
floats the cream may he revolved in a
solid body without friction, except
upon very small portions of the cream
As a rule, a churn should be not much
more than half full of cream at any
time, though much depends upon the
character of the cream. If it has
been raised from scalded milk it will
churn under almost any condition. It
is in cool weather in spring and fall
that trouble is most frequent, but very
hot weather, unless ice is used, is
almost as bad. Those who change
from the old-fashioned open pans to
some one of the new deep-setting sys
tems, are pretty sure to have more or
less trouble in churning, chiefly be
cause in deep-setting the bulk of the
cream is increased, and the churn is
consequently much fuller when used.
This alone is often a sullicient expla
nation of the cause of the cause of the
difficulty when cream refuses to be
changed into butter.

Tllf AlTfUt Of K Pl llllltril
llilim Atioul Animal I'rlaotin KIKI l*rt
"Just cast your eye over this," said
a naturalist "There is evidence that
among the animals there is a police
department or an ambulance corps,
one or the other."
The reporter closed one eye. holding
it shut with one hand, and with the
other gazed through a powerful mag
nifier. Ho saw three ants, and one
was apparently in a very maudlin con
dition. It raised its legs in the air,
waved its head to and fro like an ele
phant, and evinced a decided desire to
walk backward. In the mean time
the other two ants were vainly en
deavoring to coax it along, at first
caressing it with their artenna\ and
finally, as if out of patience, seizing it
and marching it oft out of the range
of vision.
"That," said the naturalist, "is a
case of 'drunk and disorderly; $lO or
ten days.' I fed the ant on sweetened
rum, so that it was actually drunk;
then 1 admitted two sober ants to see
if they would tako care of it, and you
see they have done so.
"The idea of intoxicating ants is
original with iyir John Lubbock, lie
found that ants nearly always arrested
other ants that ho had made drunk. In
fact, if you asked me what was the
most intelligent animal next to man I
should say the ant. No, not because
he will get drunk, but for a thousand
"Do you suppose ants imprison their
kind for offences?" asked the reporter.
"There is no doubt of It," was tho
reply, "as they imprison vast numbers
of insects for various reasons. In fact,
the lower animals have their prisons
and prisoners as well as we do. Of
course they are a little different, bit
we must allow for a difference in
tastes. Everybody knows how ants
make prisoners of various species of
aphides, and slaves of their own kind.
One of the most remarkable cases of
imprisonment is that of the bird horn
bill. so called from the wonderful de
velopment of its bill, which is only
used in crushing fruit. The breeding
season is probably not looked forward
to with any great degree of pleasure
by the birds, as it is a period of close
imprisonment for the mother and of
great labor for the father bird. As
the time approaches the female search
es for a hollow tree, and, having form
ed a rude nest, takes her place within.
The male now flies away and returns
with its bill full of mud, which it
plasters about the opening of the nest.
Load alter load is thus brought and
laid on until the crevice is completely
plastered up, with the exception of a
single orilice large enough to admit
the bill of the prisoner. Tho mud
soon hardens, and the bird is firmly en
closed, and so remains until the young
are hatched and well grown. The
male bird is not a hard jailer, however,
but works to obtain food for its mate,
so that she conies out of prison in
much better condition than her unfor
tunate jailer.
"Trees are not the only prisons,"
continued the speaker. "In marine
life there is no end of prisons and
prisoners. For example, here is the
beautiful sponge called Yenus's flower
basket which grows in eastern seas.
They are unsightly objects when lirst
taken up, the rich sheeny silvery
framework that we see being merely
the skeleton of the sponge, so to speak.
So much like basket work is this skel
eton that when they were lirst brought
to Europe they were supposed to bo
the work of men, and so brought fabu
lous prices. In this one that 1 have
you see there are two prisoner crabs,
but how did they get in? Each is as
large as the end of your little linger,
and the largest hole in the skeleton is
not larger than a pinhead."
"The reporter gave it up.
"The truth is," said the naturalist,
"that the crabs are prisoners for life,
and have served out a life sentence.
In their younger days these crabs are
called by different names, and in one
stage—the zoea—they aro extremely
small, and live a roaming sort of life.
During this time our crabs must have
crawled through the minute window
of tho living sponge, and were unable
to got out. The sponge grew, and so
did the crabs. Finally the sponge was
fished up, and the animal matter was
washed away, leaving the bright,
silvery prison with the two great
prisoners crawling about—as great a
puzzle as the egg in the bottle."— New

Mrs. Oliphant writes in the Century:
"There was a story current at the
time, that at a state ball, very near the
period of their betrothal, the young
lady gave her princely suitor a rose,
which he, without a button-hole in his
close-fitting uniform, slit the breast of
his coat to find a place for, and that

1 Like a®i Evil Spirit,
In olden times it was thought that evil spirits came in through cracks
and keyholes. The generally approved way to keep them out was to plug
up the keyholes and stop the cracks with cotton. Notwithstanding these
preventive measures, the evil things had their own way and often came in
as they pleased.
So comes malaria now-a-days. We try to keep it out of the keyhole
and it comes in by the crack. We stop up the crack, and lo! it comes from
a leak in the plumbing, or an opening from some neglected drain, or from
some unsuspected source and unguarded direction.
We cannot always keep malaria out, but we can give it battle and
drive its effects from OUR systems. If BROWN'S IRON BITTERS is taken in
time, malaria has not a ghost of a chance. This is the great family medi
