Agriculture indicate that with a
continuance oi fair weather much
of the big con: crop of Pennsyl

will be out of danger of frost. In
some years gone by September
frosts have caused damage and this
has caused extra effort to bo made
by farmers and growers to speed
up the cutting. Two years ago a
considerable part of the corn ciop
was never cut owing to the early
appearance of cold weather which
ruined much of it. In many sections
of the State plowing is in progress

are for a big acreage, say State of

that there should be no waste of
the fruit. "One apple out of every
four goes to waste either by rotting
in the orchards or in the cellars.
This is a loss which if avoided
would mean considerable to the
farmers and fruit growers" says he.
The yield this year represents only
fifty-two per cent of the normal

Americans Secure
Trade in Germany
Cologne, Sept. 17.—British busi
ness men have taken notice of the
strides made by Americans in ac
quiring trade in Germany. At a
meeting in Cologne reqcntly of di
rectors of the British Chamber of
Commerce for Germany, C. Knott,
of London, said:
"America has more than 1,700
Chambers of Commerce in all parts
of tho world, and these associated
chambers some time ago sent a dele
gation to Europe which visited Co
logne and Berlin and departed with
Germany orders in fabulous
amounts. The goods are to be de
livered at once on three years'
credit. In this way the United
States is securing the lion's share of
Germany's import trade. Such is the
result of the co-operation of their
Chambers of Commerce. I see no
reason why British Chambers of
Commerce cannot employ such
Canada Offers Hand
to British Soldiers
London, Sept. 17. —Canada is of
fering a cordial reception to de
mobilized British soldiers who have
not found in England satisfactory
employment upon their return to
civilian pursuits. North American
emigration is being suggested as
possible solution of England's press
ing resettlement problem.
While nil British emigrants will
be welcomed, Canada is particularly
warm for the coming of professional
men. Canadian professional socle
ties are said to be prepared to give
special preference to men of this
class. Qualified accountants, chemi
cal tyid forestry Interests, for in
stance, have many positions which
it is hoped may be filled through
absorption of this excess of British
professional men.
Using Substitute For
Gasoline in Paris
Paris, Sept. 17.—The government
has authorized experiments with a
benzol and alcohol mixture as a
substitute for gasoline in automobile
engines, in view of the high price
of the latter—a dollar a gallon.
While benzol used alone undoubtedly
gives more power than gasoline, it
has an objectionable odor, and
chauffeurs who have tried it assert |
that it corrodes carburetors and
cylinders. Both these disadvantages,
it is claimed, may be to some extent
removed by mixing the benzol with
alcohol or ether or both. I
Department of Agriculture Is
sues Warning in Regard to
the Dreaded Pests
Fred Rasmussen, Secretary of
Agriculture, who has returned from
meetings in Albany and Boston of
the Commissioners of Agriculture
of the various States to discuss the
control of the European Corn Borer
and to study the methods of con
trol in operation in the infested
area says the European corn
borer, unless its spread is checked,
is likely to prove the most destruc
tive of all Insects to America. The
total value of the corn cro> last
year was three and one-half billion.
The European corn borer has
been found in sections surrounding
Albany and Schenectady, in the
vicinity of Boston, and recently in
three places in southern New
The borer passes the winter tn
the corn Malks and its eradication
in infested areas depends on the
complete destruction of all the
stalks. It has also been found that
when corn is not available the
borer will live in the stems of
other plants. As many as forty dif
ferent plants up to the present
time have been found to satisfy its
appetite. This makes the problem
of eradication a most difficult one.
Every effort possible is being made
by the State and Federal govern
ment to eradicate this nest where
found. Experiments are being
made with liquid fire as well as
machines which will crush infested
material to a degree that will des
troy the borer.
The infection of fields in New
Tork State is estimated from one
per cent, to five per cent, while in
Massachusetts fields are from one
per cent, to practically one hundred
per cent, infection.
The danger of the spread of this
disease is so great and the control
so difficult that resolutions were
adopted by the conference to ask
Congress to make an appropriation
of two million dollars for the con
trol and possible extermination of
the European corn borer.
Scouting for the European corn
borer has been done by representa
tives of the Pennsylvania Depart
ment of Agriculture. Up to date
no infection has been found in this
