TOTS OITIZKN, WKDNBSDAY, MAY 18, 1910. THE I GRANGE FACTS II FEW LIS TREATMENT OF FALSE HAIR. "LA8T 81QH MOOR." ANOTHHIt I'LAOUE OV IilCH. Tho following la n sample of many letters, In rcgnrd to tho appearance of plant lice on vegetables, received nt the Dlvisron of Zoology of tho Pennsylvania Department of Agri culture: "We are having a 'plague of lice' In this section. A small, green louse Is killing our potatoes, tomatoes, radishes and other vegetables. The lice cling to the under sides of the leaves, and some leaves aro entirely covered. 1 sprayed tho potatoes with Bordeaux mixture and Paris green, nnd also dusted them with air-slaked lime, but to no purpose. Coll oil cnlulslon seems to kill them when applied directly to the under surface of the leaves, but that, of course, Is too tedious an operation to be prac ticable. Can you suggest anything to help us out?" To this State Zoologist Surface re plied as follows: "I beg to state that the plant llco of which you write are sucking Insects and are, therefore, not to be destroyed by the Bordeaux mixture or arsenical poisons, such as Paris green. The Bordeaux mixture is only for plant diseases, and the arsenical poisons are only for chow Ing Insects, Biich as the potato beetles and codling moth. Two good pre paratlons can be used: one Is kero sene emulsion, containing about eight or ten per cent, kerosene, an nlied with a sprayer having an ex tension rod on the end of the hose. On the end of this extension rod use an eighth-turn with a "Y" carrying two up-turned nozzles. You can spray the under sides of the leaves on each side of the potato row, al most as fast as a man can walk along, and you will kill the lice very soon. The other remedy is whale oil soap: One pound of the soap should be dissolved In six gallons of water. Two pounds of soft coap or of com mon laundry soap In four gallons of water will also kill them. Apply this In the same way. The pests must be reached by a contact Insec ticide which actually touches their bodies, or they will not be destroyed. These are the remedies for all kinds of plant lice." 0 0 THK ELM LEAF BEETLE. An esteemed Adams county cor respondent Inquired of Prof. H. A. Surface, State Zoologist, as to the elm leaf beetle, and said: "1 will be very glad to receive Information con cernlng the proper treatment of elm trees, to prevent the ravages of the Insects which caused so much trouble last summer. I would like to know in this connection what merit the home-boiled lime sulfur solution would have." Professor Surface answered this request for information as follows "Replying to your recent letter making inquiry for the proper treat ment for the Elm leaf beetle, I beg to say that this consists of arsenate of lead, or some other poison, like Paris green. If the latter Is used one-third pound in fifty gallons of water Is enough. However, I much prefer tho arsenate of lead, of which you should use two or three pounds In fifty gallons of water. Apply It soon as a spray on the young leaves When the beetles first commence their work, they should be destroyed by this poison. The lime-sulfur wash Is not a poison, but kills Insects only by contact, and when It Is strong enough to kill the Insects like Elm leaf beetles, It would bo strong enough to destroy the leaves. There fore, I do not recommend It. "The Elm leaf beetle Is very de structive to the elm trees In certain localities of the southeastern part of ' this State. This Is to be regretted, as the elm tree. Is one of our most magnificent and beautiful shade trees, and this pest Is very serious In Its efforts. However, It does not spread to other trees than tho elms, and Is comparatively easy to hold In check by thoroughly spraying with a poison, such as arsenate of lead used whenever tho beetle commences to make Its appearance and feed on the leaves. The Injury results gen erally In perforated and netted leaves, which really are reduced to skeletons In a comparatively short time. This forces tho trees to put out another crop of leaves, which, of course, Is quite a drain on their vi tality." The Old Surf Bath. It la not so many years ago when surf bathing of a very primitive kind nrevalled at the eastern end of Long Island and, for aught I know, at other points. Every Saturday morning, or afternoon, as the tide willed, through out the Summer big farm wagons trun died down to the beach and were swung around abreast or the line of breakers. Old flshhouBes served the nurnooe of modern bathing pavilions and the sea costumes were those of last year's village street. A long rope was drawn from under the seats and hitched to the wheel, and thou some Btuidv ex-whaler or life crew man In red flannel fihlrt and old trousers tied at the ankles Bllpped his waist through the loop at the end of this primitive life line and, wading out, kept It as taunt as circumstances permittee while the women and children hunt to it and reeled and wallowed and shrieked, rejoicing In their "Saturday The Chlue decline to buy phono graphs hnvlntf black irunilvti.

The Cunard line steamship Umbrln has been sold to ship brenkcrs for $100,000 and will now go to tho scrap heap. The Umbrla was built twenty five years ago and at tho time was the crack of the Cunard fleet A woman in Chicago society says that It would bo nn excellent thing for the men of that city and New York to spend n little time reading Lord Chest ertleld's letters. She thinks It would Improve their manners. The first trust In the United States to pass the $100,000,000 mark In capi talization was the United States Leath er company, organized In 1893.

A German genealogist. Professor Otto Forst, a leading authority on me diaeval lines of descent, has tried to demonstrate that two emperors, tho German emperor and the czar of Rus sia, nnd four kings thoso of Spain, Portugal, Italy and Saxony; also Arcn- duke Ferdinand of Austria are de scended from a fifteenth century bar ber named Babou, who was born about 1450 and who earned his living as a barber In Paris, whero ho was a skill ed beard tralucr. Tho Archduke Franz Ferdinand of napsburg is a nephew of the aged emperor of Austria and heir presump tive to tho imperial throne. lie is a son of tho lato Arcbduko Karl Ludwig and Is married to the Princess of Ho henberg. Ab, howorer, his wlfo was not of a royal family, their children cannot ascend the Austrian throne, nnd tho archduke was forced to form ally renounce tho throno on behalf of any of his descendants before bo could obtain permission to marry. How to Clean It Properly and Make It Lat and Look Better. False hair will last longer nnd look better If properly cared for, nnd as tho best qunllty Is not Inexpensive and! should be selected It behooves a wo man, now that quantities of It aro worn, to know how to make It last. To begin with, then, n cheap qunllty Is the most expensive, for after little wear It becomes cither scrubby look ing or so harsh that It cannot bo used. Cheap pieces lose color and cither streak or fade quickly. Ono of tho most Important and dif ficult details of caring for chignons Is to keep them free from dust. Like hnlr growing on tho head, they hold Impurities nnd unless cleansed will grow dull looking nnd old. In their care a soft brush Is an essential, and every night when the pieces nre re moved they should bo stroked lightly, but thoroughly, with bristles In such n way that tho dust Is taken out. This should not bo omitted even for one night, for once the Bwitch or puffs be come dust laden they nre difficult to clenn. No fnlso hair, when not being worn, should be exposed to tho light, for sun and nlr will absorb Its dressing un necessarily. After being worn It must never be put nwny until It has been well smoothed. To wnsh a switch or puffs is prac tically Impossible, but as cleansing Is necessary nt intervals cornmcnl shduld bo applied. The meal must be rubbed ccntly, but thoroughly, through tho strands, nnd then, fastening the top of the piece securely, a long bristle brush must be applied vigorously to remove tho grains. m Before this, how ever, the long hnlr inust be rubbed be tween tho hnnds, so the meal will ab sorb the dust. Once In a long while, perhaps every two months, a little oil rubbed on the false piece will keep It lu condition and nld In preserving tho dressing. For this glycerin Is excellent, and the manner of applying should be cnreful ly followed. Too much of the grease will almost rulu it, while too little will not be effective. When using the glyc erin the tip of the piece must be se curely fastened where tho long hair will hang free. Then a few drops, scented, may be rubbed between the palms of the hands to distribute It evenly nnd then put directly upon the hnlr, the only difficulty being that un less care Is exercised the crease will adhere to only one part of the switch, This is most apt to be avoided by pressing the palms lightly when first thev aro nut on. making the stroke heavier as the grease Is absorbed. Under no clrcurastnnces must there be an appearance of grease. It Promises to Be the Most Distress ing of All for Spain. Fore raoro than 400 years tho bodies of dead Spaniards have filled tho trenches and tho bnttlo plnlns from North America to Torro del Fuo go and from Cuba to tho Philippines. Every family's dead Is scattered over tho earth. And It lms all been lu vain. Iho people of Spain have only really prospered since wo relieved them of this burden of world-power nnd world meddling which wo aro finding so costly nnd troublesome. Thoy havo Eccn all go. save n fow rocks on for eign shores, of which Ccuta nnd Melll la are the most vnlunble, and they nro wihtng to lot them go rather than pay tribute to the war gods. Tho Liberals, the Republicans, the Democrats, tho I .i.gresslvo common pcoplo, and tho mothers of Spain have had enough of It all. They demand less war and more education for Spain. The Morocco wnr Is not new. It Is only another echo of that momentous reign of Ferdinand nnd Isabella. Tho present war is directly attributable to the opening of minc3 and raids on those mines fifteen miles Inland from Melllla. But as a matter of fact this Is only the present day provocation. Underneath and behind It, smoldering through centuries, are the fires of tho hatred for tho Spaniards that tho Moors brought over to the Riff coast when they wore expelled from Spain and when, leaving Granada, they even carried their keys with them to Africa with the determination to return to use them. The present war began In Melllla only five years after Columbus dis covered America; when the Spaniards following tho Moors, established tho Spanish town nnd convict station on tho rocky peninsula which Is now Melllla, and to which Spain Is now sending her soldiers. And this time the Moors are equipped with tho very rlfies that the Spaniards carried In Cuba, sold to them by a snort-sighted government. They have the hatred, the villainous appearance, nnd tho arms to make this "last sigh of tho Moor" the most distressing ono of all. The Evolution of Booster Bill VIII.

Fow persons know the convenience and delicate taste of cooked bananas. Few not to bananas bora realize their nutritive value. Yellow bananas can be employed In ninny excellent ways. They are fine plainly boiled In their skins and served with cream or sweet butter for breakfast. They may be boiled with salt pork or baked around a leg of fresh pork (peeled in last in stance) or fried and served with broil ed lnmb kidneys and bacon. Used in this way, both the kidneys nnd the bananas take on an added flavor by being together. Select fruit which while ripe, Is yet perfectly firm. Ten minutes nre required for boiling and five or a llttlo more for frying. The fruit will let you know when It is done, for It falls Into a pulp as easy to digest as baby food. Baked bananas mny take the place of potatoes on a luncheon table, as they are excellent with all meats. Bake them In their skins in a hot oven nnd punch them occasionally with the fingers to see bow they nre progressing.

THE NOBBY LONG COATS - - AT - - taer & Cos Stores Soap for the Orient. It is told by travellers that the homes of the common people of China nre so wanting In cleanliness that a Russian dog would refuse to live in one of them. The peasantry are said to be unacquainted entirely with the benefits of water except for irrigat ing and drinking purposes. From the report of the Deputy Con- sul-General at Hong Kong It appears that a new order of things Is begin ning to interest tho Chinese. Among the Inhabitants of Southern China a brisk demand has of late sprung up for soap. In the year 1906 Great Brit ain sold more than $500,000 worth, and In tho same period soap to the value of $22,000 ha3 been Imported from the United States. Tho Euro pean business has almost doubled in a year, and the Americans are doing better than ever before. Tho Deputy Consul-Qeneral says that the demand Is a growing one, the taste of the buy ers running toward the highly scented grades and those with attractive wrappings. He thinks that American manufacturers could do very well If they went after the business, putting their products up In cartons marked with Chinese characters. Toledo Blade. How to Make Cleaning Balls. Cleaning balls arc easily made and cost less than If bought of n chemist. To mako them take half a pound of dry fuller's earth and moisten It with a little lemon Juice. Then add half an ounce of finely pulverized pearlash, and make all into a thick paste. Form Into llttlo balls, and dry them in tho sun or at some distance from a Are. In n few hours the balls will be ready for use. When required the stained cloth should be moistened with warm water and rubbed with a ball. Let the garment dry, then brush off the pow der, nnd wash It out If necessary. Japanese Coins the Finest. If comparison Is made with coins of other countries it is found that, so far at least as the experience of the New York assay office goes, the American coin, although falling considerably short of the absolute fineness, Is about as good as any other gold coin cur rent In Europe, and better by a good deal than some of them. The average of German coins that have been melt ed down at the assay office has proved to bo about 899,626, the average fine ness of French coin about 899.4, while the Spanish coins havo frequently been found to bo as low ah 896. In all these countries the legal flnoness Is 900, so that these figures show that there is considerable variation from the nominal fineness of coins, not only here, but In Europo as well. It is an Interesting fact light recently thrown on Japaneso affairs In gen eral makes It possible to say a curi ous fact that the Japanese coins In tho matter of fineness aro superior to all others.
