II has been here this winter.

The greatest event of tho season
was the entertaining of Pomona
Grnnge by the members of Indian
Orchard Grnnge. No. 1020, at their
hall on Thusday last. At 9:30
o'clock a. m. the visiting members
began to arrive and by 2 o'clock p.
ra. over two hundred had assembled;
among them were fruit growers,
dairy men, poultry men, gardeners,
and those of many other occupa
tions. Ono of the fruit growers ex
hibited a fine specimen of npple that
had been raised In the west; he also
exhibited some very Inferior apples
that had been packed and shipped
that had been obtained from n mar
ket Hro. Gilpin said that he could
show them apples better than tho
best that were exhibited if they would
fall at his house. They were grown
on trees that he hnd grnftcd along
old stone rows. He would suggest
that farmers graft the trees that
come up along stone walls, in past
ures, and In forests. One of the
poultry men told us how to make
hens lny by feeding them hay. Much
was said about the silo and ensilage.
The diameter of tho average silo
should be about 12 feet, tho depth
25 to 30 feet? Tho greater the depth
of the Bllngo the better it will be
preserved. When lining silo, salt the
silage near the edge to prevent from
freezing. .Many interesting, enter
taining nnd valuable things wero
said on gardening. You should
know what tho soil will grow best,
then plant of tho same, tho vege
tables that you need most. Many
other subjects pertaining to
grange nnd grnnger wore ably dis
cussed by Bros. Bullock, Cody, Kline,
Gray, Taylor, Kinsman. Stevens,
Saunders, Williams, Knorr, linker,

INFECTED TREES SENT
OUT BY NURSERIES.
A bundle of apple trees was re
ceived at the Division of Zoology of
the Pennsylvania Department of Ag
riculture, Harrisburg, from Alle
gheny county. The trees were part
of a lot of 400 shipped last fall from
a New York nursery. Prof. H, A.
Surfaco, State Zoologist, exnniined
the trees, and then reported upon
them as followed:
"We have received the four app)e
trees which you sent to us, and find
that they are infested with the Wool
ly Aphis. You will see these pests as
little white stains, looking like flour
or a touch of whitewash, in tiie in
jured places of the knot holes on the
bark and also on the roots. If tho
nursery from which you obtained
the trees had fumigated them prop
erly .according to the requirement
of this State, before shipping them
into this Commonwealth from New
York, these pests would not be alive
upon these trees at the present time.
I would earnestly recommend that In
getting trees from outside of Penn
sylvania you Insist that they bear a
tag showing that they have been
fumigated, In accordance with our
State law. If the growers decline to
fumigate them, they are shipped in
to this State Illcgnlly and you should
not accept them.
"Since you have received the trees
and found them Infested with living
Woolly Aphis, as these show, it is
necessary to prepare to destroy this
pest at once, because it keeps the
wounded places sore nnd makes
great knots on the trunk, branches,
and roots of the trees. The Woolly
Aphis can be killed by spraying with
nny contnet insecticide thnt is ef
ficient for scnle Insects. Among
these nre to be recommended, of
course, the lime-sulphur wash, kero
sene emulsion nnd strong sonn solu
tions. It cnn be killed by dipping n j
pnint brush Into any of theso solu
tions nnd painting tho mntorinl on
the infested spots. Ono of the best
remedies, however, is to make up a
pnint with rnw linseed oil and pure
i white load and such coloring as you
wish to add, and with a paint brush.,
I put n generous touch of pnint on
each Infested spot. This will not
only kill the Woolly Aphlds, but also
cover that particular placo of abode,
so that It will not becomo Infested
"Where the pcBts nre on tho roots ,
you should discover this before ,
planting, if possible, nnd kill them J
by dipping tho roots Into vory strong
tobacco decoction. Where tho trees I
nre planted tho roots should bo cx-j
amined for Woolly Aphlds, where
theso pestB aro to bo seen on the
trunks or branches. Do this by re-
moving tho soil over the roots nnd ,
watch all knots or Injured places for .
tho presence of pests. If they aro
round, eitner souk mom witn very
strong tobacco decoction, or cover
them with finely ground or powdered
tobacco, and replace the earth to its
normal condition. Do not use to
bacco stems for this, as thoy aro
too coarse to kill tho insects. The
tobacco Is a valuable fertilizer and
will repay tho work."
