ABOUT MOTHS AXU MILLERS.
Mra. "12. A. K.," Taunton, Massachu
aults, asks tho following: I. "Do ull
kinds of millers muku moths? 2. What
lime in the year are motha lonned?
3. JJii tnSfJr::m. hi wisilen iK)da an
the year, or only in warm .weather ?"
Am. 1. Tbo writer, a lady, evident
ly wishes to know about tbo clothe
moth, and her first question may bu
answered No. Hut us the terms
"Moth" und ' Miller" are used in a con
fusing manner, we must explain. The
scaly-w inged insects ( Lrpittoptcrn ) are
divided into butterflies and moths.
Tho larvro or caterpillar hatched Irom
the egg, is a great feeder; when it is
full grown it liirma a pupa, or chrysa
lis, keeps quiet for a time, and then
cullies out a perfect winged insect bus
slender feelers with a (wooly) knob on
the end, and rests with all its wings
erect, it is a butterfly, and if it rusts
wub two or all ol its wings spread out,
il is a moth, and these usually fly at
night. They vary in sine, fnnn very
minute lo large insects wilb six or even
nine inches spmul of wing. Rome
moths are culled millers, aud somu peo
pie give the name miller to all mollis
that are nut showy. It will he seen
that tbe name moth has a wide appli
cation. In spcuking ot tho clothes
moth, it has become to bo culled simply
moth. Il is it cutoi pillar which, feed
ing upon clothing, doe tbo niiscbiuf.
II eats the wool ot the cioui. ami at
tbo same time uses some of it to build
the cane, which it sturta atxin after il
in hutched Irom the egg, and enlarge
it, as in growing it needa mure room.
This cusu. which is open at botb ends,
Ibe caterpillar line with a very soil
wub, and il is curried about with it
wherever il goes in tH-urch of haul, ll
is this caterpillar then, which is gen
erally culled the moth. Thu caterpil
lar is about hull an mru long, ami
uluuit thu sire of a darning needle,
white, with a borti culored bead, and
has sixteen teet. When full grown, it
change to a chrysalis, and al length
comes out an the perfect insect, or mot h
proper, aud which I ollcn culled the
ninth-miller. This is a very delicate
little insect, with a sprcud of wings ot
only about bull' an inch, uf a huff color.
shilling like silk, and nils aisuit very
quietly in suan h of a pluce lo lay eggs.
lha! will breed moths and miseiiiei.
So fur as our clothe are concerned,
the lurge "miller" do no barm. Thu
moths muke theirappeurancein spring,
usually in May, and as several bnssls
aro produced during tbu season, there
in duuger from them until cold weuth
erenines. Tho-e thul are then in their
little cases in the clothing, remain dor
mant all winter, and come out us ninths
tho next spring; thin answers minor
rtymndetit'n 2nd and 3d qnestiuns. As
to preserving articles from mollis; if
the woolens are free from tbe insect
in the egg or caterpillar form when
put away, aud are kept all an miner in
a case or package which is so thor
oughly tight that thu parent muilicun
not get in to hiv her eggs, or it eggs
should be laid on thu outsitlu, there is
nocraok or pin-hula lurge enuugh for
tbo tmv caterpillar to get thniugli
then the clothing will Ins perlectly
sate. Bag uf paper, quite free frum
holes, will keep tho arlicles. Or they
may be Ml led up in successive papers,
each one being carefully pasted down.
A tight box, with every joint and
crack made doubly ure by pasting
strips uf paper over them, Is used hy
some. Others use an empty liquor bar
rel ; the articles being paced in this, it
is headed nn tighllv. the recutita
bio. whatever it may be, ia pmperly
ligbt. no camphor or other aromatic
needed ; these article aro disagreeable
to tbo parent moth, and keep her
away, and some ol thorn will kill the
young caterpillar. Camphor, benzine,
curboliu acid, and other strong smell

as yet, bo bas only emerged once or

Throughout this bolt of country beca
