The rose is rightly called the‘‘Queen |
of Flowers,’ and June is the month of |
roses, yet roses are becoming more |
rare because of the difficulty in grow- |
Ing them, and many persons think that |
this is due to changes in conditions of
climate or soil. Professor H. A. Sur-
face, State Zoologist, Harrisburg,Pa.,
makes the following statement that
if rose bushes are given proper atten-
tion for the suppression of theiripests,
roses can be grown to as high a state
of perfection,and in as great abundan-
ce as ever before. However their
pests have been increasing, andjsome
knowledge and skil must be used in
their suppression. He giyes the fol-
lowing directions for combating 2the
pests of roses and jgrowing beautiful
flowers. ’
“The rose leaf is likely to become
more or less blotched with gray, and
upon examination small white insects
are to be seen which, as they become
older, fly quickly. These are the Rose
Leaf Hoppers. They pierce the rose
leaf from the outside with the sharp
beak, and destroy the chlorophyll, or
green coloring substance. They can-
not be killed by spraying with arse-
nical spray as they are tnot chewing
‘“The best remedy for them is to
spray with a tobacco decoction or
with soap solution, or with strong de-
coction of pyrethrum or hellebore,jor
(with about ten per cent. kerosene
: A small ‘hand sprayer or
atomizer will do for this purpose, but
it should be held so the spray will
strike the undersides of the leaves. If
the pests fly to the ground they should
be sprayed there. and be thoroughly
covered with spray liquid.
Another sucking insect seriously in-
juring the rose bush and stunting the
growth of flower and leaf is the Aphis
or plant louse. This pest is destroyed
by spraying or washing with one of
the above applications for the Leaf
‘‘Certain worms or larva of insects
like shell-less snails or slugs are
likely to feed upon the leaves]of roses
These are known as the Rose Leaf
Slugs. They are easily destroyed by
spraying with one ounce of arsenate
of lead in each gallon of water, or by
dusting with one-fortieth part of Parig
green mixture with slaked lime or
fiour. Care should be taken not to get
any spraying application too strong as
it may injure the delicate parts of the
plants. Certain insects may feed on
the flowers of the rose, eating away
the petals. These can be killed by an
application of the same remedies as,
the Rose Leaf Slug.
The Leaf-cutting bee is likely to cut
out circular discs from the rose leaf
It also
can be destroyed by spraying with
one ounce of arsenate of lead in each
gallon fof water, or dusting with
poison dust when the dew is on the
‘‘If there are scale insects on the
trunk of the rose stalk, wash these
with a very strong solution of soap
and water, applying it with a brush
or use strong lime-sulfur solution
made by boiling lime and sulfur to-
gether as for San Jose scale.
‘If the rose plants are not thriving
well and seem to be feble, there may
be pests at the roots, in which case
tobacco dust worked well into the soil
in great abundance is found to be an
excellent insecticide as well as a ferti-
lizer. To push the growth of the plant
and make more beautiful leaves and
flowers, scatter one ounce of nitrate
of soda on the ground around the
plants once or twice per month. This
should be finely pulverized and scat-
tered over a radius of two or three
feet from the plant.

Becomes lame, weak or aching;
If urinary troubles set in,
Perhaps your kidneys are ‘‘in a

Don’t delay—use Doan’s Kidney
Here is
P. T. Miller, retired farmer, Main
street, Berlin, Pa., says: ‘I have
had no reason to change my high
opinion of Doan’s Kidney Pills and I
recommend them just as highly to-
day as I did in October. 1907. I have
Hot had to take a kidney medicine
during the ‘past several years. I was
severely troubled with kidney and
bladder complaint. The kidney se-
cretions were irregular in passage and
it often seemed as if my kidneys
were not acting at all. I also suffer-
ed from acute pains in my back.
When Doan’s Kidney Pills were
recommended to me I began using
them. They acted just as repre-
sented and it was not long before
I had relief. My advice to other
kidney sufferers is to give Doan’s
Kidney Pills a trial.”

On Monday. June 23rd, Judge J. Q.
| Van Swearingen, of Uniontown, will
preside at a hearing in the equity case
of Edwin D. Schade and others, of
Johnstown, against the Windber Tel-
ephone Company, in which it is alleg-
ed that the officers of the concern il-
legally voted themselves sufficient
shares of the capital stock of the com-
pany, about a year ago, to make them
the majority, or controlling Zstock-
holders. The stockholders of the
Windber Telephone Company are di-
vided into two factions, one lead by
Schade, who is also general ananager
of the Johnstown Telephone company
and the officers and directors of the
big coal town company. Their dis-
putes during the past year have caused
several suits in the Somerset courts.
Last October the Schade faction se-
cured a mandamus compelling the
management of the company to ,per-
mit an examination of the company’s
books. An appeal was taken to the
Supreme Court. In November Schade
and others were granted an .injunct-
ion restraining the alleged majority
stockholders from voting disputed
shares at the company’s annual elec-
tion. On the same day George A.
Smith and other reputed majority
stockholders secured a second injunc-
tion restraining the company from
holding any election at all until the
legality of the ownership of the stock
in question was finally] determined,
because the present majority stock-
holders, deprived of voting fthe full
value of their stock, would be in the
the minority. Alfew weeks ago the
Supreme Court sustained the Schade
people in the mandamus proceedings
which were thereby terminated. An
inspection of the Company’s books, it
is alleged, brought out additional
reasons for cancelling some of the
stock of the reputed majority holders,
and the plaintiffs have accordingly
amended their original bill of com-
plaint. Judge Van Swearingen will
hear the case specially presiding for
the reason that the suit was commen-
ced during Judge Kooser’s adminis-
tration and Judge Ruppel was interes-
ted in the case as counsel. The break
between the stockholders and the
Windber company occured several
years ago and was followed by the
cancellation of a working agreement
between the Windber and Johnstown
telaphone campanies, resulting in de-
priving the subscribers of the Johns-
town company in Cambria and Somer-
set counties of service to Windber.,
Later the Windber concern connected
with the Beil telephone lines and up
until the present time there is no other
means of telephoning to the county’s
metropolis. ad

For Good Roads.
A vigorous campaign in behalf of
the ratification of the proposed con-
stitutional amendment to permit the
the State to borrow $50,000,000 for re-
construction of 1ts highways is to be
inaugurated this summer by the Penn-
sylvania motor Federation and it has
been assured of the support of many
and of individuals
throughout the State interested in the
movement to secure good roads for
Pennsylvania. The Federation has
undertaken to inform the people of
tke State as to the purposes of the
loan and to make the plea for its adop-
tion so that 'this State may obtain
alike for the farmer and the dwellers
In cities and towns the advan‘ages of
better highways.
The Federations plans include a big
State convention in the interest of
good roads to he held at Harrisburg
in September. The Federation will
ask the use ofthe hall of the House of
Representatives, and the whole sub-
ject nf highways in Pennsylvania will
be gone into. All motor clubs will be
urged to send delegations and the
public generally will be inyited to
participate. The road improvement
proposition, which can not be under-
taken until the next Legislature pass-
es enabling legislation to issue bonds
after approval of the amendment, will
be utterly divorced from politics and
considered from the standpoint of
general good, economy and increase
of facilities for getting about the
This campaign will then be pushed
in every county . Good roads meet-
ings will be addressed by speakers on
behalf of the federation and publicity
forces employed so that the issue in
its broadest sense may be laid before
the people. The Federation will co-
operate with other organizations in-
terested in the bond issue as a means
of advancing the interests of the
State. After a thorough study of the
proposition men active in good roads
have become convinced that the
$50,000,000 loan proposition affords
the only systematic way to get the
roads improved and they will work
vigorously in its behalf.
These plans were made by the
State Federation at its recent annual
meeting in Philadelphia. Support is
being tendered from all over the State.

Fixes Milk Temperature.
The House passed, 117 to 18, the
bill of Representative James J. Camp-
bell, of Philadelphia, which will pre-
vent that city from fixing the tempera-
ture of milk there at less than 60 de-
grees. The Department of Health and
Charities thinks the temperature
should be 50, er at most 55 degrees.
The Campbell bill is State-wide in
its scope, although, the ¢# degree
minimum is eptienal with the Boards
of Health. At present Philadelphia

The House defeated the Humes milk
bill for State imspection.of cews and,

Wednesday, and the House tonight
reconsidered, - then on final passage
defeated the bill.
Fire Marshal Bill.
Director ‘of Public Safety Porter,
Powell, Evans, of the Fire Prevention
Cemmission; Chief Edwin Clark, of
the Bureau of Building Inspection, and
other Philadelphians are working
against the State administration bill
repealing the clause, passed two years
ago, exémpting Philadelphia from pro-
visions of the act creating the State
Fire Marshall. ,
The present bill would place the
Fire Marshal’s department in Philadel-
phia under the control and direction
of the State Fire Marshal. Backed by
the administration, it has passed the
House and is now with the Senate Ju-
diciary Special Committee.
The Director was emphatic in de-
claring that the only purpose that he
can see in the repealer is to provide
jobs for erganization werkers, the
measure fixing a per diem fee of $3
for an unlimited number of deputy
State marshals. It also allows the
deputy 25 cents for reporting eath fire
in his district. i
“When the bill creating the State
Fire Marshal's department was before
the Legislature two years ago, a copy
of it was sent to Director Clay, and
at his suggestion a clause was insert-
ed exempting Philadelphia and Alle-
gheney counties,” said Director Por-
ter. “This action was taken because
there were already well established
fire marshal’s offices in Philadelphia
and Pitt:burg.”

Streams Being Purified.
The tanneries of the State are
co-operating with the Department of
Health and Fisheries in purifying the
waters of Pennsylvania. For years
the Fisheries Department has been
trying to get the streams clear of
chemicals and manufacturing plants
and tanneries have been constructing
devices “for the purification of their
wastes which were formerly poured in,
to the rivers and creeks unadulterat-
ed, causing the death of many fish.
Fish Commissioner Buller has just re-
ceived a letter from M. J. Beach,
president of the Elk Tanning Com-
pany, which owns a large number of
tanneries, advising the Department
that it is making these improvements.'|
