STRAWBRIDGE & CLOTHIER,
CLOSING SALE OF DRY GOODS
AN EXTRAORDINARY SCALE.
We hereby announce te the public that our Rebuilding Operations, new in pi o e
gress, will include sonic radical changes in our picscnt store, and duiing the summer
materially reduce the size of the building. "W'c find ourselves with the largest stock
we have ever had at this stage of the season, aggregating almost
A ILLION DOLLARS IN VALUE.
And it is net only desirable, but necessary, that a large portion thereof
should be closed at once.
Although the great bulk of this stock was contracted for en a basis of values much
lower than new, we have determined, after careful consideration, instead of storing
away the goods, te distribute among our patrons and consumers generally, say one
FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS' WORTH,
At such Prices as may be necessary in order te speedily close. We have, there
, A GREAT CLOSING SALE
In Every Depirtmcnt, and propose te distribute such bargains among the people,
far and wide, as will be our most effective advertisements for the new store we pro
pose te open in tins early autumn.
PAKE PARTICULAR NOTICE
We de net claim te have reduced everything, for there are certain goods in such
limited supply that we can scaracly meet the demand. SUCH GOODS WIIL NOT
BE REDUCED. Rut outside of these a radical mark-down has taken place, and
many goods that are selling well are maikcd away down te insure their immediate
clearance. The opportunity te secure bargains is a very unusual one, and buyers of
Dry Goods the country ever should promptly put in appcaraucc at our house.
Our organization and our facilities for distributing large quantities of goods, are
believed te be unequalled, but every effort will be made te strengthen it and increase
its cHiciency during this closing sale, se that all who visit us may be waited en prompt
ly and te their entire satisfaction.
Discarding all sensational or exaggerated statements we threw upon the market
this immense stock of Dry Goods, determined te sell the amount named at whatever
sacrifice may be necessary te accomplish the object.
All who need Dry Goods 01 who can be induced by the certainty of saving, te an
ticipate their wants, should visit us in person. Frem present indications the goods
will be sold tee rapidly te insure in all cases perfect satisfaction in the filling of orders

THE ARMY WORM.
T11K ALARMING EXTENT " ITS RAV
Ne Decrease in Its Devastation en Leng
island unci iu New Jersey.
Farmers in Despair Compelled te Cut Down
Their Green Ciep te SaveTheni
from the Insect.
The Leng Island plague continues with
out abatement en the south side and the
pest has made its appearance at several
places en the Sound. At Nortbpert es
pecially, the army worm is in great force,
and, as en the sheics el' the Great Seuth
Bay, is devouring everything along the line
of march. Se far the cenii.ti parts of the
island have escaped, hut in is only a ques
tion of time as regards the existence of the
insect whether the entire grain crop of
Leng Island will net be devoured. Ahcady
the wheat, rye, eats and corn en nearly
every fai m within tin ee miles of the beach
en the south side arc destroyed, and where
a few days age there was still hope among
the farmers tbeie is new only despair.
Cleser observation has shown that the
worms de net feed at night, as was sup
posed, but in the afternoon and evening.
During the night and while the heat is
greatest in the daytime they He dormant,
but about three o'clock each afternoon
they begin te travel, and then the ground
which they are traversing becomes literally
black with them. Early in the morning
there are scarcely any of them te be seen,
but by turning up the sod clumps and the
ether places where they can lind protec
tion or shelter they will be found in gangs
of from twenty-live te fifty, enjoying their
repose. When the daily inarch begins it
is by the million, and they sweep every
thing before them which they lind te their
taste. Se far ticcs and shrubbery and
potato vines and clever te some extent
have escaped, but rye and wheat fields are
stripped se completely that often nothing
but the stalk remains. Cern is cut oil'
even under the earth, se that it is feared
even the roots will be devoured, and tim
othy eud "red top" are eaten up se com
pletely that a lire passing ever the
meadows would net leave them mere arid.
Mr. Plumb's thirty acres of rye were
completely stripped in sixty hours, and
new the staiks are dying iu the ground.
The Jield begins te leek as if it were ripen
in'' for the haivcst, but of the heads only
the chalfieniains. Even the beards have
been eaten up. When the head was espe
cially young and tender the chalf as well as
the ijrain and beards was eaten. An ex
cellent proof of this was found in Mr. Dox Dex
sce's wheat field. The heads of the wheat
rcniaiu, although the grain is generally
grown, but wherever a clump of rye was
found among the wheat it was completely
stripped. A pine tice in winter could net
leek mere barren than these rye stalks.
In a wheat Held en the farm of Mr. lirad
ish Jehnsen there is another phase of their
destiuctiveness. Te leek at the wheat as
it waves gracefully in the wind it presents
the appearance of a most premising crop.
The beaids remain and many of the blades
have been left en the stalks, but there are
no kernels in the chaff the field will pro
duce nothing but straw. Mr. Jehn Law
rcuec's beautiful lawn which surrounds
his residence at Babylon is completely
ruined, at least for the present. A pro
longed drought could net have been se
hurtful as the passage of this army of
worms aci ess his pleasure ground. Even
the grass by the roadside has been con
sumed wherever a brigade or division had
occasion te cress the read from one field
Bctwccu Babylon and Amityville nearly
every farm is occupied by the army worm.
S. C Jervis's eight acres of corn was at
tacked a week age, and nearly half of it
is destroyed, cut down te the ground se
that net a green sprig can be seen. Mr.
Jcrvis ploughed ditches, but the worms
walked through them. Then a happy
thought struck hiin. He owned 200 ducks.
His neighbors leaned him 300 mere, and
he drove them, quacking their objections,
te the field. They learned in one day,
however, te cat the worms, and began, he
says, te scoop them up by the shevelful.
The ducks throve, and the worms began te
weaken. Still the ducks kept en, eating
sometimes se much that they sat down en
the ground, unable te stir. In fifteen min
utes they were up, and as eager as ever for
the fray. Unluckily seme of the ducks
wandered into a potato Held and ate some
of the Colerado potato bugs that had been
dosed with Pai is green. A dozen ducks
died. Mr. Jervis's corn destroyed was val
ued at $400.
The scourge struck. Jehn Robbins's place
just beyond, a week age. The worms have
inaichcd through live acres of wheat and
three acres of rje, and new they arc in a
bread field of timothy. Less se far $300.
James T. Merris, across the way, had five
acres of wheat. He saw the worms cross
ing the sticct in myriads te attack it. He
hud a hone with which the weeds aie
scraped every spring, and he hitched his
horse te the hone. Mounting the scat,
Meri is whipped up his horse and drove
back and feith for hours en a keen jump,
crushing the grubs in his way. But his
grain was net saved. Themas Powell,
Powell, near by, lest $300 in eats and
"Where Did They Come Frem?
As a matter of course the Leng Island
farmers are much interested in the solution
of the question as te where these worms
came from ; but upon this point there is
much diversity of opinion. Dr. Mewbcrry
believes that the moth deposits its eggs in
the fall, and that if there had been an
early frost or severe winter the worms
would have been killed in their incipient
stage. The deposit, he says, is made at
the junction of the second leaf in the
formation of the first joint, as with grain
insects generally. Where rye and wheat
was sewed se late, he argues, that the
second leaf was net yet forming when the
moths were laying their eggs, the areps,
comparatively speaking, have escapes, and
he points out the fact that Captain Cleck's
wheat, which was sewed early, has a
hundred worms te one in his fields where
the sewing was late. Sir. Jarvis Smith,
en the ether hand, will net hear of this
because his splendid field of thirty acres of
rye en Mr. Plumb's farm was sewed early,
and he triumphantly points te the early
sewing in the rye field opposite the Pres
pect beuse in disproof of Dr. Mewbcrry's
theory that the egg is laid in the fall. Mr.
Smith feels assured that an impertinent
fly, which flew in the faces of his men
while they were planting potatoes, is the
parent of all the evil, and in this be is
sustained by Mr. Baker. "Three weeks
age," Mr. Baker said, "my fields were
black with a green fly. It looked like a
fish fly but was neither a fish fly nor a
house fly." This, he thinks, did the mis
chief by depositing its eggs in the ground.
Mr. Michael Bennett inclines te the ether
side and gives it as Iris opinion that the
eggs were deposited in the fall. While he
was planting last fall he says he saw the
moth but thought the result would be the
weevil. Nobody agrees in regard te the
origin of the plague but all are anxious
that entomologists shall make this new
pest a special study and if possible afford
valuable information te the farmers.
When Will They Disappear?
In regard te the disappearance of the
pest there is also as much difference of
opinion as in legard te its appearance.
"The largest of the worms," Mr. Plumb
says, "are new burying themselves in the
earth, about three quaiters of a inch from
the surface, and I think from their ap
pearance that these have finished their
work above ground. But there is another
crop coming en, of a lighter color than the
fiist ones, and from an eighth of an inch
te an inch in length. They have
the same head but in color they
are of a greenish shade and the
stripes are less prominently marked. This,
I think, is the reason that while the largest
ones af the old stock are fast disappearing
the number does net diminish." Their
rapidity of growth is wonderful and the
better their feed the faster thoygrew. Mr.
Plumb is collecting a number of the warms
together with the ground they are buried in
He places them with the dirt in a large
glass aquarium open at the top with a
view of studying their future develepemcnt
It is hi intention te watch them pass from
the larva state into the chrysalis and from
the chrysalis into the moth, and se solve
the question that is vexing all his neigh
bors, lie was the first te discover their
presence and has made their habits a par
ticular study during the fortnight that they
have been eating up his farm. "They ap
peared at 'Deer Ranee' last Wednesday a
week age," he said "and in that time
have done infinite harm."
During the past four days they have ex
tended te the neighboring farms, and, se
far as I can learn, in every instance are
working north and west and show no in
clination te travel cast. Their favorite feed
seems te be rye. corn, led top and timothy,
esnecially the two latter. It seems te be
the impression of Mr. Jarvis II. Smith,
who has charge of this farm, that though
they will attack and eat wheat they pre
fer rye. Any kind of grass they will de
vour, but they will pass clever if they can
lind anything else gieeu te feed en near
by. When eveiy thing el.se is gene then
they will jie back en te the clever. We
have one held of twenty-ene acres of corn,
new eight inches high, lying directly north
of the lye field, which was separated by an
avenue two reds wide, destroyed. All
our energies were devoted te keeping them
out of this field and a large field of po
tatoes te the east of said grain field,
and we have succeeded thus far in
sav.ing these two crops ; but while doing
se our attention was diverted from a corn
field of twelve acics te the west of said
grain field, separated by an avenue or lane
a red wide, and which we did net appre
hend was in danger, as the army was
working north. As a precaution one fur
row was ploughed, however, befere the
last rain, and that field was considered
safe ; but in twentj'-fuur heUrs time a de
tachment of the army in strong numbers
started for the west, and we think because
they weie fought se persistently with lime,
tar, lire and Paris green te the nor h.
The only effective remedy in fighting
them se far has been in the use of deep
trenches dividing the fields te be protected
from the field already attacked. The fol
lowing diagram will give some idea of the
trench between the old field and the new :
The deeper the trench the better, and it
will be improved by pits or wells dug still
deeper, as indicated in the following dia
Trench With Pits.
With these trenches and pits a boy with
a broom can step an army, but it is better
te keep fiesh "red top" saturated with
Paris green or Londen purple in the bot
tom se that they may eat of it and die.
On Mr. Plumb's farm every means of
destroying them was tried, and all means
except the trenches, even the attempt te
destroy by a heavy iron roller has failed.
On these points Mr. Plumb says :
" Wc have abandoned our iron read
roller as of no earthly use. It weighs
about a ten when weighted, and, although
it of course kills a great many, with such
an army as we have te contend with, it
was but of little use. Wc ran the
roller en the wide avenue (two reds wide)
which divides Deer Range in two sec
tipns (running east aud west) with a view
of stepping their traveling north. This
avenue is as level and hard as any in Cen
tral Park, but in running the roller ever
this avenue it would seen become se moist
with the crushed worms that the dry dirt
would adhere te the roller and make the
roller lumpy ; se that many would escape.
If the grass is sheit the roller is effective,
but if long it is of no use. Next we have
used tar, but with no effect whatever.
They will go right ever it, and if one gets
stuck it simply makes a bridge for another.
Wc have tried salt, dry sewing it in win
nows ; also made a brine of it, with no ef
fect whatever. We used kerosene oil by
pouring it in the ploughed furrows or
ditches prepared for them. It stepped
their progress only momentarily, for the
dead ones only formed bridges for these
marching behind. Then wc tried lime,
without the least particle of effect. They
cared no mere for it than for brown sugar.
The Devastation in New Jersey.
The depredations of the army worm in
New Jersey, while they de net approach
in extent or severity these en Leng
Island, arc in seme respects mere marked
and worthy of study. It is only the fertile
high lands that have been ravaged, these
epicurean insects disdaining the sand
fields en either side. Where they exist,
however, their presence is severely felt.
Frem the highlands of Navcsink away te
the north as far as Cream Ridge they have
appeared in great numbers and seme of
the finest fields of rye, wheat aud timothy
in that fertile section have been complete
ly destroyed. In ti.e lower part of Mon
mouth they are nearer the sea thau in the
neighborhood of Raritan bay and even
the piazzas of the hotels and the grand
drive at Leng Branch are covered by them.
At that favorite watering place they took
Ksscssien of the lawns in Hollywood
Park, the residence of Mr. Jehn Hoey, and
destroyed his beautiful grounds in a few
hours. Frem Leng Branch they penetrated
many miles into the interior, devastating
the whole country between Farmingdale
and Middlctewn, beyond Freehold and
almost te Hightstown. The timothy
and rye crops of Geerge Hance, at
Tinton's Falls, were destroyed in a day.
The farm of Gee. Stilwcll at Shrewsbury
and that of bamuel Hendpcksen at Hum
son suffered severely. It was, however,
in the vicinity of Holmdel, or mere
properly in Holmdel township, that they
were most destructive. This region is the
garden of New Jersey, and the premise of
an abundant harvest was excellent a week
age, but new many fields will yield neth-
ing except straw.
Seme of the Jerseymen say they have a
few or the worms every year, but this year
they came 'earlier than usual ana conse
quently were mere destructive. A het
May, they say, brought them te perfection
just at the critical moment for the crops.
