its use In Fruit Trees, Vines, Wheat, Corn, Flow
ers, and all kinds of Vegetation, cannot be
doubted by any honest man. When applied to
trees, it p metrates every pore, destroying the
worm in the limit of the tree, and by connect
ing with the mineral substance of the earth,
destroys the cause and prevents the creation of
any destrnetive insects. It will prevent Curou
lie from st inging the plum, and every person
using it will have sound plums. It will kill the
peach grub, and make peach trees hear healthy
fruit. It will prevent dry-rot in grapes. It
swells the tree causing the old bark to peel otl
from the body, while a beautiful new green
bark takes its place. It will kill potato bugs
and prevents potato tot. It will prevent weave),
mill-dew. or rust in wheat, and prevent the fly
from touching it. It destroys the cat-worm in
corn—in tact, it will kill any kind of insects that
attack Fruit Trees, and cause all Fruit Trees to
bear sound fruit. It is now extensively nsod in
the Western states. and those who have used it
would not he without, it, for a thousand times
its cos). It has been used in the southern parts
of Barite County,tbis state, on grain. trees, lco.,
