What is the object in spraying and why
do we spray? We spray for checking dis-
eases, destroying obnoxious insects, keep-
ing our trees healthy and bringing the
fruit to perfection. Can that be done?
Yes ; if any man knows how to take care
of his trees with pruning, tilling and fertil-
ization, how and when to spray, and what
to spray with, then his trees ought to be
healthy and vigorous, and his fruit perfect,
but take one link away and the chain is
When spraying, use as fine a nozzle as
you can and be sure that you get all over
the tree so that no part is left unsprayed.
This is more easily done with a fine nozzle
than with a coarse one. And always re-
member that one really good thorough
spraying is worth more than three less
The fungicides mostly used for orchards
are : (a) Copper sulphate solution ; (3 Ibs.
of pulverized sulphate of copper to 45 or 48
gals. of water.) (b) Bordeaux mixture ;
6 lbs. sulphate of copper and 4 lbs. of
quicklime to 50 gals. of water.) At times
it may be necessary to take only 4 1bs. of
sulphate of copper instead of 6, but it is
very seldom that the foliage shows any
effect from the stronger solution ; and Yor
that reason it is, as a rule, preferable, be-
ing more effective. (¢) Ammoniacal copper
carbonate. (5 ozs. copper carbonate,
ammonia enough to dissolve the cop-
45 gals. of water.) The Bordeaux mixture
should, as a rule, he used with Paris green
at the rate of 4 to 5 ozs. to 50 gals. of the
mixture. When mixed thus it is ag valu-
able an insecticide as it is a fungicide, and
the Paris green can be applied with more
safety when mixed with Bordeaux mixture
than when it is used alone. Ammoniacal
copper carbonate can be mixed with Paris
green too, and it is then.a very valuable
insecticide. However, there oughtnot to be
used more than 2 ozs. of Paris green to 45
gals. of this solution, as otherwise there
will be danger of injuring the foliage.
When ought these different fungicides to
be used, and when is one preferable to the
Use the copper sulphate solution in the
spring while the buds are swelling, but
never use it on foliage, it will burn.
Use Bordeaux mixture and Paris green,
first, when the leaf buds are open, but be-
fore the flower buds expand ; second, as
soon as the last blossoms have fallen, and
then every tenth or fourteenth day, or at
longer intervals, as needed ; but do not
use it on any kind of fruit after the fruit is
half grown, as it then will spot it, and the
spots will hurt the appearance and sale of
Use ammoniacal copper carbonate and
Pairs green when a fungicide is needed,
after the fruit is half grown or later. It
will not spoil the looks of the fruit, and is
very effective. When used without Paris
green it can be safely applied within three
days of ripening of currants and ooseber-
ries without staining the ru There
are other fungicides as iron sulphate and
sulphuric acid solution and potassium sul-
phide solution, but they are not so all-
around useful as the three first mentioned.
Before leaving the fungicides I would
caution you to never mix the coppef prep-
arations in tin or iron vessel, as they will
soon be destroyed. Always mix in a
wooden, a brass, or. an earthen vessel.
And again, do not use Paris green with
ammoniacal copper carbonate without ad-
ding 3 1b. of lime for 45 gals., and then
not more than 2 ozs. of the green. One of
the reasons why Paris green cannot be
used with the carbonate when fruit is near
ripening is that it~ will stain, while the
ammonical copper carbonate, pure and
simple, will not. .
Of insecticides there are quite a large
number. However I shall only mention a
few of those best known and most exten-
The insecticides may be divided into two
classes, viz : internal poisons for insects
which chew, and external poisons for those
causing death by contact. The last men-
tioned poisons are used exclusively for
those termed ‘‘true bugs,” that is insects
which suck. as the aphises and scale lice.
Besides, they are used with very good suc-
cess on soft-bodied insects.
. Paris green is very well known and de-
serves to be so. It is a very vauable insec-
ticide. It may be applied at the rate of 1
oz. to 10 gals. of water, provided there is
added 1 1b. of quicklime to every 50 gals.
However, the best and safest way to use it.
is with Bordeaux mixture. London pur-
ple is another well known insecticid=. It
should, however, be used with more care
than Paris green. The arsenic in London
purple, is, as a rule, more soluble, and
consequently it is more liable to cause in-
jury to the foliage. It should not be used
at g greater strength than 4 ozs. to 50 gals.
of water and always in connection with
lime or Bordeaux mixture. Besides it
should never be used on peach,” plumb,
nectarine, apricot, or cherry. And it may
be said that Paris green is safer to handle,
and gives al ther better satisfaction.
Arsenate of lead is made of three parts of
arsenate of soda, mixed with seven parts of
acetate of lead. This can be applied very
strong without injuring tender foliage.
For most larvae it will be strong enough
at 1 1b. per 15 gals. However, it can be
used with safety at1 Ib. per 15 gals. If
there is added one pint of glucose for every
45 gals, it will be more adhesive. ;
White hellebore kills both by contact
and by being eaten, as does pyrethrum
powder. Both of these can be used at the
rate of 1 oz. to 3 gals. of water, and they
are very good, particularly for the currant
worm. Kerosene emulsion is a contact
poison, and a very good one. It is mixed
in several ways and after different formu-
lee, as the Riley Hubbard Emulsion, Prof.
Cook’s Emulsion, kerosene and milk emul-
sion, and pyrethrum kerosene emulsion.
Of the kerosene emulsions I consider the
Riley Hubbard the most convenient, be-
sides it is perfectly safe to use. The for-
mula is 1 1b. of hard soap dissolved in 1
gal. of boiling water ; remove from the fire
and add 2 gals of crude kerosene ; mix it
with a large hand syringe till it has the
consistency of loppered milk. This stand-
ard emulsion can then be diluted with as
many parts of water as may be wanted for
the treatment intended. In using for the
four lined leaf bug, it should. according to
Mr. Singerland, of Cornell Experimenting
station, be used in a strength of 1 part
of the emulsion to 4 or 5 parts of water,
and, according to the same authority, it
should he used for the pear leaf blister
mite at a strength of 1 to5 or 7. The lat-
ter-corresponds with our experiments.
During the years 1895 and 1896 we have
carricd on several experiments, some of
them directed against certain insect pests,
others to ascertain how strong the different
solutions, mainly kerosene, can be applied
to trees during the growing season. with-
out killing the trees or injuring the foliage.

INTERESTING READING FOR TAX
The Luxurious Tastes of Our State Officials.
From Doctor Swallow’s paper we copied
an article, last week, giving a few of the
Juxuries the administration at Harrisburg
had indulged in in spite of the hard times.
This week the list we publish is only a
little of what Hastings, Delaney, Haywood
and the others require to make life en-
durable at the capitol to be charged to the
“In 1896 the modest number 1,872 pieces
of fancy toilet soap, 50 pounds of best white
Castile, were called for at a maximum ag-
gregate of $398.25, and thirty-eight boxes
of serub and cleaning soap at a maximum
of $194, making a total of nearly $600. But
as in the matter of brushes published
last week, they evidently anticipated, as
the sequel shows, a great increase in dirt for
1897, and hence must provide a much larger
quantity of soap. The details may be in-
teresting : Twenty boxes of elder flower
24 pieces in a box, at $4.25 a box, ag-
$85 ; 45 dozen German glycerine
soap, at $5 per dozen, aggregating $225 ;
two dozen tar soap at $4; 36 dozen cuti-
cura at $2.25 a dozen, aggregating $81;
60 dozen Colgate’s superfine, at $4 per
dozen, aggregating $240 ; 18 dozen -Col-
gate’s sand soap. evidently feeling that
they would need sand this year, aggre-
gating $13 50 ; 175 pounds of Yaritu Cas-
tile, aggregating $52.50 ; 10 pounds Wil-
liam's soap at $4.50—making a total of
8505.50 for fancy soaps for one year to
which must be added $348 for scrub and
cleaning soap, making a grand total for
the year for soaps of all kinds of $853.50.
But who shall complain at this? Did not
a great man once say that ‘‘cleanliness was
close akin to Godliness?’ Was all this
soap used on the Hill? Who will answer.
Where so much soap is required, a cor-
responding quantity of water must be used
and the use of water implies the use of
towels. What surprise, therefore. if, in 1896
180 fine bath towels are needed costing
$150 ? Sixty flner bath towels, aggregat-
ing $75; 300 hemstitched huck aggregating
$225 : 36 old bleach at $45 ; 80 common at
$16 ; 144 hand huck at $36 ; 1,200 bird's
eye huck at $300, -hemstitched with words
‘Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,’’ the
whole aggregating $847. In 1897 they
must provide for the Legislature, which
means only a slight increase, as they want-
ed but 1,342 towels at an aggregate of $917.
Query : What use was made of the nearly
1,000 towels not marked some of them
maximumed at $1.25 a piece? Perhaps the
high price was thought to be sufficient to
indicate to thoughtful people that they
could belong only to the State, and were
not to be appropriated for private use and
hence did not need” marking.
We respectfully suggest to Messrs. De-
laney, Hastings, Haywood and Mylin, that
having submitted to Attorney General Mc-
Cormick the question of the privilege of
tax payers entering the burned building to
ascertain whether their own property had
been set on fire according to law, and he
having decided with these Commissioners
that tax payers have not this right, but
that it is reserved for such men as Mr. De-
laney shall designate, that they submit to
him other questions equally profound, and
which must have taxed their learning to
the utmost, provided they gave them any
thought whatever. For instance : Give the
present condition of Susquehanna water,
the number of bath tubs to be found on
the Hill, and the condition dirt ward of
those who have a legal right to use these
bath tubs, how many pounds of fine soap,
and how many dollar and a half bath tow-
els should be allowed to actually disap-
pear on an average for every bath actual-
ly taken ? If the average cost of a bath in
soap and towels is found to be twenty-five
dollars or five dollars or even one dollar,
then it might be well for the Attorney Gen-
eral to compare these figures with those of
the average .well-regulated bath house in
Harrisburg and elsewhere, and after mak-
ing due allowance for the dignity of State
officials, and for the amount of dirt to be
washed off, if he finds that the cost of these
ablutions to the tax payers is excessive he
will doubtless give his opinion solidly
against them. If the use of soap and water
and towels on the Hill is found to be in-
temperate, or immoderate, after canvas-
sing the necessity of sone people, for get-
ting a fair share of water into their sys-
tems by absorbtion, as the only method
known to them, the an opinion may restrain
them, as it does the tax payers from enter-
ing the burned building. Or, it may be
necessary to enjoin them through the courts.
There is certainly enough power in the
State, even if it evolves the calling out of
the militia, to regulate these matters.
Experts on the pathology of excessive
bathing say, that one danger lies in the di-
rection of excessive humidity, and the in-
ference is that it tends to dilute the system,
and may unfavorable effect even the states-
man’s brain, and thus furnish a diluted
State government. From the standpoint
of a private citizen taxpayer, we suggest
to the Attorney General that these g-ave
questions be duly weighed and settled in
“‘good faith.” a
Clean people are usually fond of flowers,
and it will be found in this case that the
ratio of increase in soap and towels is far
from keeping pace with the increase
in rare exotics. In 1896 the conservatories
were full, and when transplanted the
rounds were as full ‘of flowers as they
should be. They showed congiderable taste
in their arrangement and were really a
credit to the State. The schedule maxi-
mum called for only $269 worth of new
plants. However the pleasure experienced
by servants of the State in giving away to
their friends, relatives and constituents of
other people's property in the shape of ex-
pensive plants, in 1896, seems to have
whetted their appetites for still greater
claims on the modified scripture th t is
both blessed to give and to receive. In
1897 they call for nearly $3,000 worth of
flowers, plants, seeds and fertilizers, and
well up to $4,000 worth of fountains and
vases, though the average tyro in flori-
culture would wonder where all this would
go. Being the son of a farmer, we have
studied hard to discover wherein one year
they would sow ‘100 bushels of capital
park lawn grass sced at a cost of $380,” or
“5 tons of ground bone dust at $175,” or
2,000 pounds of mitrate of soda at $80.
But times have greatly changed, and it may
be that soils have also changed, so that we
must move cautiously here.
* In 1896, during a part of which the free
barber service in the senate barber shop was
run for the accommodation of -the State
employes, they needed twenty gallons of the
best bay rum at a cost of $55, but Agtorney
General McCormick, having rendered an
opinion that such service was not strictly
in harmony with the provisions of the new
Constitution, however much it might min-
ister to the constitutions of those who got
lathered and shaved, shampooed and bathed,
these requirements for 1897 dropped down
to the minium of one gallon—only one.
There was a call in 1897 for twentyfour
Putz pomade at $8 ; twelve pints of Pond’s
extract at $8 ; and one-half barrel of cas-
tor oil, the latter to cost not more than
$17.25. It may have been used for lubri-

aggregate of $261. ' They also call for 360

The la grippe, that dread disease that
had such a run throughout this country
three and four years since, left many who
were previously in robust health with shat-
tered constitutions and seemingly confirm-
Prof. A. H. Nye, living at No. 2500
Olive street, Cedar Falls. Iowa, was among
the number left by the disease in a precari-
ous condition, his nervous system shatter-
ed, and with a general debility of his entire
system ; no strength, feet and limbs badly
swollen, in fact, he was almost helpless.
Prof. Nye is a native of New York State,
having come west in 1886—a healthy, ro-
bust man. He is a school teacher by pro-
fession, having served as county superin-
tendent of schools of this (Black Hawk)
county several terms, and he has the re-
spect of all with whom he comes in con-
tact. His helpless condition called forth
the sympathy of the entire community.
He tried the best medical skill procurable,
and spent most of his ready means-in the
vain endeavor torecover his health, and
had about given up completely discourag-
ed. He had stopped taking treatment, be-
ing fully convinced in his own mind that
there was no help for him, and that he
would have to spend the balance of his
days as an invalid, a burden to family and
friends. Some one who had heard of Dr.
Williams’ Pink Pills, spoke to him about
them and urged his giving them a trial.
His poor success with eminent physicians
made him skeptical and he had no faith in
what was called proprietary medicine, and
would not listen to this advise for some
days. The friend being persistent, how-
ever, and having faith in the Pink Pills,
Cedar “Falls, Towa.
would not let up, until he had finally pre-
vailed upon the sufferer to send for a box,
which he reluctantly did, and after receiv-
ing them decided to give them a fair trial.
The first box relieved him in a surprising
manner ; yet he was not convinced that it
“was medicine that helped him, but the
weather which had turned. pleasant, and
did not send for a further supply until he
was again about as bad as before taking
the pills. Then he concluded he would
make another trial, and took three hoxes,
and to-day is nearly if not quite as well as
before the attack of la grippe. It is need-
less to state he cannot say too much for Dr.
Williams” Pink Pills for Pale People, for
people who have been left in poor health
from la grippe or any other cause. Any
one wishing to test the validity of this let-
ter can write Mr. Nye, No. 2500 Olive
street, Cedar Falls, Iowa, and he will
cheerfully recommend the medicine, and
state his condition before and after using.
Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills contain, in a
condensed form, all the elements necessary
to give new life and richness to the blood
and restore shattered nerves. They are an
unfailing specific for such diseases as_loco-
motor attaxia, partial paralysis, St. Vitus’
dance, sciatica, neuralgia, rheumatism,

Much consternation and still more won-

which had become metamorphosed into a

strangest appears to be the most tenable.

ing, when janitor Smith opened the win-
dows in order to air the office against the
arrival of Mrs. Shute, he beheld an object
on the sill outside which caused him to
spring back in horror. Squatted on the
sill. was a hideous, dirty-hued green and
yellow reptile, about ten inches in length,
with a head like that of a bulldog, an enor-
mous mouth, wide open, six web-footed
paws, and a tail that tapered to a lash, and
was curled at the end.

fastened to the toes of one of the lads, and
but for the assistance - of the men present
would have drowned" the boy. To unloose
the reptile its head had to be cut off close
to its jaws, and then not for some time
could the teeth be loosened from the flesh
and bone. The turtle weighed about thirty
pounds, the largest ever captured in Pike
county. The boy became nearly frantic
with pain and fright.

Lived off Bread and Milk for Years. 9 Home Doc-
tors Failed to Cure me, Dr. Salm Succeeded
For more than four years I have had a bad case
of catarrh, stomach and general trouble. Took
cold continually. For one and a half years 1
could eat only bread and milk. . Tried’ nine dif-
ferent doctors, to get rid of my misery, but got
worse and worse. So I went to Dr. Salm for
treatment. and to-day I am as strong as ever, can
eat anything,-and don’t take anv more cold, and
consider myself cured of this terrible-disease.

People Think Dr. Salm Has Done A nother Wonder-
ful Piece of Work.
I have had a very bad case of catarrh and sore
eyes for more than eight years, dnd consequently
it gave me a world of trouble. I was obliged to
see Dr. Salm, under his treatment the change is
wonderfully rapid. My friends are astonished, as
well, and think with me that Dr. Salm has done
another wonderful piece of work. .

A Casc of Catarrh and Throat T rouble Cured by
For more than three years our two children
have been suffering from catarrh and throat
trouble, also entarpen tonsils. They were con-
tinually taking cold. Could hardly breathe at
night. ~ Their constitutions became undermined,
After a short course of treatment with Dr. Salm,

miserable disease. J. F. HARRISON,

Couldn't Walk 15 Yards at a Time, Was no Earthly
Use to Any One, Thought I Was Going to Die, *
but Dr. Salm Cured Me.
For 2 years or, more, I have had a fearful
trouble, begun to get very weak, my limbs would
not carry me any more, couldn't walk a stretch of
15 yards, and my heart would beat a fearful rate,
at the least exertion, It seemed my blood ‘was
turned to water, I. gradually became pale as one
dead. I was no earthly use to any one, and all
my neighbors and relatives thought I was goin
to die. Home doctors couldn’t help me, so
went to Dr. Salm, and to-day, I am happy to state,
that I am stronger than ever, can eat anything,
do a full day's work, and enjoy life as much as
any one, and my color, any one may be proud of.

Suffered for 15 Years With Nervous, Inward and
Ear Trouble, Tried a Half Dozen Doctors, and
a Pile of Patent Medicines, but Had to go to
Dr. Salm to be Cured
For 15 years I have suffered very much with
nervous, inward and ear trouble, and my condi-
tion grew worse and worse. I tried a half dozen
doctors, and piles of ‘patent medicines, to no
avail, 1 went to Dr. Salm, and, thanks to his
knowledge as-a physician, I consider myself en-
tirely cured, Those paing, which came every
month, and the fearful nervous rostration re-
sulting therefrom, has entirely left me and I feel
happy once more. Mrs. W. M. Jos,
