Insect Pests on the Farm.
In hef "Guido to Methods of Insect
Life'' 3I!sa Eleanor A. Ormeroil, con
sulting otomologist to tho Royal Agri
cultural Society, divide the insect
enemies of tlio farm into three orders,
which aro subdivided and classified in
n manner readily understood by non
scientific readers. Of wirowornis she
says i "Tho skip-jacks, or click beet
le.?, do little if any harm in tho bectlo
state, but in tho grub state that is,
what wo know ns wiroworms tho
mischief and loss they causo to tho
country are boyond calculation. Tho
wiroworms will feed on tho roots of al
most all farm crops excepting mustard,
and llvo for flvo years before thoy
oeaso eating to turn to chrysallds and
thenco to click beetles. They nro .
. . commonly of a yellowish color,
and tako their iiatno from their great
likeness to a short, thick piece of flat
tened wire. Tho click beetles aro of
many, kinds, and commonly about a
quarter to half an inch long and about
a third of that in breadth, and of a
brownish color, and tako their name
from their power of regain'mc their
position when laid on their backs by a
sudden jerk or skip into tho air, accom
panied by a click. Tho femalo beetles
lays her eggs on, or a little beldw, tho
surfaco of tho ground amongst leafage
and roots, and especially in such places
a9 grass meadows or clover leys, where
tho surfaco is undisturbed for a time,
possibly for years, and consequently
tho ground below swarms with wire
worms of all ages. When tho pastures
aro broken up theso tough-skinned
grubs aro in no way hurt, but remain
in the ground ready to feed on each
succeeding crop that is put in until tho
timo for their change comes . . . .
To prevent egg-laying tho ground
should bo mado as unsuitablo as it can
bo for the purpose. It is advised to
feed down tuo grass as bare as possiblo
fold theep on it, gradually moving
the hurdles forward so that every part
of tho field may he thoroughly trodden.
Tho sheep in this case are fed with
turnips and other regular feeding
stuffs, and the amount of liquid and
other manuro thus worked into the
land thoroughly prevents tho field beiug
inviting for eggs to bo laid on it and de
stroys any that might bo upon tho sur
face." From this it would appear that
ploughing the land in tho fall would
favor tho increase of wiroworms, since
the looso soil would afford a suitablo
place of refuge for them. Miss Orrae
rod has this in mind when ehe says :
"It is advised to plough in good
timo in autumn, and work tho land
well so as to get it in good order and
consolidated, and, either by burning,
rotting, or whatever means may bo
preferred, prevent it being kept open
and full of harbors for wiroworms ;
stubble and roots, cabbage stalks or
bean-haulm, and all such matters arc
Barnyard manure is often found to
harbor wireworms j but thoroughly
salting it wdl destroy the pest.
Dangers of Breathing Through the
A paper recently read before tho
Canada Medical association in Mon
treal treats of tho causes, serious con
sequences, prevention and cure, of what
the writer terms buccal breathing in
plain English and moro correctly,
breathing through the mouth. As it
is the fate of all hobby riders, sooner
or later, his hobby has run away with
him, and ho undoubtedly exaggerates
the serious consequences of tho habit
against which he inveighs. Neverthe
less enough remains, after making duo
allowance for bis enthusiasm, to war
rant both tho public and tho medical
profession in paying more attention to
the subject than is usually done. Ath
letes, professional trainers, hunters,
mountaineers, all physicially strong
and perfect men, habitually breathe
through tho nostrils. Ono may breathe
mephilio gases or the smoko of a burn
ing building for a short time through
the nose if th'o lips be kept tightly
closed, when he would quickly suffo
cate if he attempted to breathe through
tho open mouth. The function or sense
of smell, which is commonly consider
ed the chief end of a man's nose, is
really a very subsidary part of its busi
ness. Through the nose the air is puri
fied, tempered and moistened before
it reaches tho sensitlvo larynr and
lungs. Foreign and irritating particles
are arrested in their passago through
the nasal cavities j tho temperature of
the air is raised to that of the body,
while it is moistened by tho secretions
of tho membrane which lines it laby
rinths and of tho glands which it

on the moist mucus surfaces of the

proper breathing. Tho usual effect of
the first mouthful of cold air in a sharp
winter atmosphere is to provoko a
cough and a prompt closure of the lips
to guard the sensitive structures of tho
larnyx and vicinity, and there are few
who havo not awakened in tho morn
ing with dry, harsh tongue, throat and
palate when from any cause nasal re
spiration has bec'n impeded during
sleep, tho secretion of tho mouth being
neither suitable nor suflicient to keep
tho surfaces moist under such circum
stances. Catarrh and throat affections
aro much less common nmong those
who keep tho mouth shut and habitual
ly breathe through the nostrils. Cti

ltr.MAltKAlll.i: STATEMENT OF I'MtSONAt
l.ANOl'.Il AND VKOVlllENTIAI. r.SDAl'K.
Tho following storv which is at
tracting wido attention from tho prct
is so rcmnrkablo that we cannot ex
cuse ourselves if wo do not lay it be
fore our readers, oven though its length
would ordinarily precludo its admission
to our limited space.
n itif Xitltor Itochetter (.V. r".) Democrat i
Slit, On the first dsv of June, 1881,
I lav at my resldenco In this city sur
rounded by my friends and walling for
death. Heaven only knows tho ngony
I tli.ui endured, for words can never
describo it. And yet, if n fow years
previous any ono had told mo that I
wan to bo brought so low, and by so
terriblo a disease, I should havo scof
fed at tho idea. 1 had always been
uncommonly strong and healthy, and
weighed over 200 pounds and hardly
know, in my own experience, what
pain or sickness were. Very many
people who will read this statement
realize at times that they aro unusually
tired and cannot account for it. Thoy
feel dull pains in various parts of tho
body and do not understand it. Or
they aro exceedingly hungry ono day
and entirely without appetite tho next.
This was just tho way I felt when tho
relentless malady which hart lastcnert
itself upon me first began. Still I
thought nothing of it ; that probably I
had taken a cold which would soon
pass away. Shortly after this I noticed
a heavy, and at times neuralgic, pain
in one side of my head, but as it would
como ono day and bo gono tho next, I
paid little attention to it. Then my
stomach would get out of order and
my food often failed to digest, causing
at times great inconvenience. Yet,
even as a physician, I did not think
that theso things meant anything eeri
ous. I fancied I was suffering from
malaria and doctored myself accord
ingly. But I got no better. I next
noticed a peculiar color and odor about
the fluids I was passing also that
thero were largo quantities ono day
and very little the next, and tli&t a per
sistent froth and scum appeared upon
the surface, and n sediment settled.
And yet I did not realizo my danger,
for, indeed, seeing theso symptoms
continually, I finally became accustom
ed to them, and ray suspicion was
wholly disarmed by the fact that I had
no pain in tho affected orgariB or in
their vicinity. Why. I should havo
been so blind I cannot understand.
I consulted tho best medical skill in
tho land. I visited all the famed min
eral springs in America and traveled
from Maino to California. Still I grow
worse. No two physicians agreed
as to my malady. One said I
was troubled with spinal irrita
tion j another, dyspepsia, another,
heart disease ; another, g e n
eral debility ; another congestion
of tho base of tho brain ; and so on
through a long list of common diseases,
the symptoms of many of which I real
ly had. In this way several years
passed, during which timo I wa9 stead
ily growing worse. My condition had
really become pitiable. My weight
had been reduced from 207 to 130
pounds. My life was a burden to my
self and friends. I could retain no
food on my stomach, and lived wholly
by injections. I was a living mass of
pain. My pulse was uncontrollable.
In my agony I frequently fell to the
floor and clutched the carpet, and pray
ed for death. Morphine had littlo or
no effect in deadening the pain. For
six days and nights 1 had the death
premonitory hiccoughs constantly. My
water was filled with tube-casts and
albumen. I was struggling with
Bright's Disease of the kidneys in its
While suffering thus I received a
call from my pastor, the Itev. Dr.
Foote, at that time rector of St. Paul's
Episcopal Church, of this city. I felt
that it was our last interview, but in
tho courso of conversation Dr. Footo
detailed to mo tho many remarkable
cures of cases like my own which had
come under his observation, by means
of a remedy, which ho urged mo to
try. As a practicing physician and a
graduato of tho schools, I derided the
idea of any medicine outside the chan
nels being in the least benpficial. So
solicitous, however, was Dr. Foote,
that I finally promised I would waive
ray prejudice. I began its use on the
first day of June, 18S1, and took it ac
cording to directions. At first it siok-
kened me : but this 1 thought was a
good sign for ono in a debilitated con
dition. I continued to take it ; tho
sickening sensation departed and I was
hnaiiy able to retain tood upon my
stomach. In a few days I noticed a
decided change for the better, ns also
did ray wife and friends. My bio
coughs ceased and I cxperiencd lets
pain than formerly. I was so rejoiced
at this improved condition that, upon
what I had believed but a few days
before was ray dying bed, I vowed, in
tho presence of my family and friends,
should I recover I would" both publicly
and privately make known this remedy
for tho good of humanity, wherever
and whenever I had an opportunity,
and this letter is in fulfilmnet of that
vow. My improvement was constant
from that time, and in less than three
mouths I had gained 20 pounds in
flesh, beta mo entirely free from
pain and I believe I owo my life
and present condition wholly to War
ner's Safe Cure, the remedy which I
Since my recovery I havo thorough
ly re-investigatcd the subject of kidney
ditlioiilties and Bright's disease, and
tho truths developed aro astounding.
I thereforo state, deliberately, and as a
physician, that I believe more than
one-half the deaths which occur in
America are caused by JirighCs dis
ease of the kidneys. This may sound
like a rash statement, but I am prepar
ed to fully verify it. Blight's diseaso
has no dhtinctivo symptoms of its own
indeed, it olten develops without any
pain whatever in tho kidneys or their
vicinity,) but has the symptoms of
nearly overy other common complaint.
Hundreds of peoplo dio daily, whole
burials are authorized by a physician's
certificate as occurring from "Heart
Disease," "Apoplexy," "Paralysis,1'
"Spinal Complaint," "Rheumatism,"
"Pneumonia," and other complaints,
when in reality it is from Bright's dis
easo of the kidneys. Fow physicians,
and fewer people, realize the extent of
this diseaso or its dangerous and ineid
nous nature. It steals into the system
liko a thief, manifests its presence if at
all by tho commonest symptoms and
fastens itself upon the constitution
before tho victim is aware of it. It is
uearly as hereditary ns consumption
and fully as fatal. Entire families. In
heriting it from their ancestors, have
died, and yet nono of the number knew
or realized; the mysterious power whiuh
was removing them. Instead of com
mon symptoms it often shows none
whatever, but brings death suddenly,
from convulsions, apoplexy or heart
disease. As ono who bus suffered and
knows by bitter experience what he
says, I Implore every ono who reads
THE COLUMBIAN AND
theso words not to neglect tho slightest
symptoms of kidney difficulty. Cer
tain agony and probable death will bo
tho sure result of snob neglect, and no
one can afford to hazard such chances.
I am nware that such an unqualified
statement as this, coming from me,
known ns I nm throughout tho entire
laud ns ft practitioner and lecturer, will
nrotisb tho surprise) nnd possiblo ani
mosity of tho medical profession and
astonish all with whom I am acquaint
ed, but I make the foregoing Btato
ments based upon facts which I nm
prepared to produco and truths which
I can substantiate to tho letter. Tho
welfare of thoso who may possibly he
sufferers suoh as I wns, is an ample In
ducement for me to take tho step I
have, and if I can successfully watu
others from the dangerous path in
which I once walked, I am willing to
enduro all professional and personal

Rochester, N. Y., Dec. 30.
Gambled Into Slavery,
There are ten kinds of legalizod
gamboling in Siam, and so absorbed
do tho Siamese become, in gaming that
when their money nnd personal effects
aro gono tbey will stake their own
bodies on tho turn of tho game, going
into voluntary slavery if thoy lose. In
this event before ho is permitted to
lcavo tho place, tho gambler must sur
render himself, in feu siuiplo to his
owner, who procures from the Amphor
(District Judge) a san kromatan (deed)
in which, among other stipulations, ho
bindi himself to render such services
as may bo required until tho pecuniary
obligation is discharged. The owner
may also exact interest on tho amount
of indebtedness at the rate of fifteen
per cent, per annum, but no more, as
this is tho highest rato the king per
mits his subjects to charge. If a great
er sum is demanded, and tho fact can
be established by acceptable testimouy
in a native court, the debt is cancelod
and the slave becomes freo. If for
any reason ho becomes dissatisfied
with his ownor, or master, which is of
ten tho ease, he may securo another one
by transferring tho deed, without ask
ing tho consent of the owner, provided
the redemption or "taking over" (as
tho Siamese express tho transaction) is
mado in pursuanco of law. If ho can
prove to the satisfaction of tho district
pjdgo that his wife possesses tho requi
site" amount, he may apply to the court
for an order compelling her to pay the
debt and thus redeem him from servi
tude ; but, inasmuch as the government
is not supposed to eucourago gambling
with a wife's money, the law requires
that the assignment of the san kromatan
shall bo mado to tho wife ; so that,
when possessed of this formidable do
cument, with tho official scale duty at
tached, she becomes the absoluto and
bona fide owner of her husband by an
Indisputable title which nothing but a
royal decreo can possibly annul. The
American Carriages Abroad.
There is a steady demand for car
riages to be exported to South Ameri
can States, the West Indies' and South
Africa. Every carriage is mado on an
order from tho purchaser. Only
wealthy government officials or mine
or plantation owners are able to buy
carriages in America. The demand
comes mostly irom too West indies
and from tho Pacific shore of South'
Carriages sent to South America are
usually large, four-wheeled family con
veyances, covered to keep off the
scorching rays of tho sun. The top
and sides ot the cover are of heavy
white watorproot cloth, lorming a part
of tho carriage lop. Carriages sent to
South America aro mado as heavy and
strong as possible becatiso of the con
dition of the mountain road-i, Thev
are so rough that a carnage liko those
which are trundled around Central
Park would be knocked to pieces.
Tho first cost of a carriage m How
York city is only a small part of its
cost when it reaches its purchaser.
From a manufactory m this citv recent
ly a carriage which cost $500 was sent
to Bogota, South America. On land
ing it at the coast town the carriage
was taken apart as much as possible
and each piece was packed on the back
of an Indian. Thenco thero was a long
and tedious journey up tho mountains.
The final cost to tho purchaser was not
less than $1,500
Spkeh op the Arab Hokse-.TIio pop
ular notion about the speed of the Arab
courser is, I think, erroneous. Great
speed is not his strong point ; the
chances are that on any ordinary raco
course tho best Avab in tho world
would be beaten by a second-rate Eng
lish raco horise. These Arabs wero
not, of course, first-rato specimens of
the race, but they were certainly not
bad ones. A fortnight or so after
ward, when I was at Tebessa, the com
mandant showed me an English thor
oughbred, which, ho said, had easily
run awav from overv Arab ho had
ever tried him against. But what was
far more remarkable about this horse
was that onco acclimatized and accus
tomed to the hard life and hard fare
of the Arab horses ho quite equaled
them in hardiness and endurance, as
had been proved in the course of many'
expeditions and tours of inspection
among the tribes of the district. Lon
