BiFFlcoU ITsave Trees,
Serious Damage Done Annually to
Fruit and Forest Trees by Vast Army
of Pests, Which Has Been Greatly
Augmented This Summer Precau
tions to Take Against Them.
Tlie forest entomologist of tho Now
York State College of Forestry at Syra
cuse is making a thorough study of
the forest Insocts of that state. He
has found that many kinds of insects
injurious to trees ao move numerous
ond arc doing greater damage this year
than usual. This is especially true of
such insects as tho tent caterpillars,
aphids or plant llco and scale Insects.
This serious damage by insects to
both fruit and forest trees during the
last summer is duo largely to the very
mtkl weather of last winter, which al
lowed a large number of insects to
pass the cold season BuocessfuHyTand,
the long rainless periods of spring and
early summer, which enabled the
young insocts to got a good start in
their life work of destroying vegeta-
tlon, ' ,w-
iiuch can w done in cohiDatmg the
insects so Injurious to our Stefests by
protecting our birds and by learning
of the life histories of tlw insocts, so
that It win bo known when to destroy
them in the mtet effective way.
'Doorlreylng Tent Caterpillar.
'The tent caterpillar, which has been
very destructive to certain fruit and
forest trocs during tho last summer,
tins practically coasod its damaging
work for tho present year. To combat
this destroctrvo insect more effective
ly 'next year wo should begin now to
examine tho trees upon which they
have boon working this summer, to
find tho cocoons or pupa cases nnd ogg
masses. Those coooons and egg mass
es are found usually in sheltered places
.near where tho caterpillars have been
numerous, ns under loose bark or in
tho rubbish and grass under tho trees.
Tho cocoons are of white spun silk and
often are found in masses of a dozen
or mare. They should ho collected and
destroyed. In case of reappearance
next year tho tents shoukl bo burned
off with a torch or piooo of waste
soaked In kerosene.
Many inquiries havo come to tho fo-
est entomologist regarding plant Moo or
aphids, which have been unusually
abundant this y-car. This interesting
insect has liad an excellent opportu
nity to develop m largo numbers, due
to the long dry summer. Many young
trees or branches of trees and shrubs
haw been deformod and in some in
stances killed outright by these lice.
On tho trees in homo grounds and
parks ono of the host ways of destroy
ing tho aphid colonies is by showering
tho insocts with tho full force of water
from a hose. Tho insocts are thus
washed oft and only a very email per
centage of them succeed In getting
back on their food plant again. Chem
ical sprays .may bo used, hut if these
are effective against tho aphids they
aro likely to be Injurious to tho plant
and 'roust be used -with caution.
Many Hickory Trees Dying.
A number of reports havo como to
the entomologist of 'the dying of tho
nattwo hickory In different ports of
tho Btate. In most' cases this is duo to
tho hickory bark beetle, which is a
very small boring insect, Irving be
tween tho lnner barfc and tho eap wood
of tho hickory. This beetle makes a
burrow In which it lays its eggs and
from this burrow smaller burrows aro
madojn all directions by tho young
The 'hickory -tree, from a commercial
standpoint, Is doomed In New York
state, unless -very active work Is done
to prevent tho spread of tho Insect
This can bo done only by cutting the
infostod treo down and disposing of it
in a way to kin oil of the Insects un
der tho bark. This may be done by
burning, by soaking tho logs In water
or by barking tho trunk and burning
tho limbs arid bark, Tho college of
forestry at Syracuso will be glad to
havo tho "work of Insects In forest trees
in any part of the country reported to
them, and they aro ready at all times
to -determine the species and give sug
gestions ad to combating it

The Farm Problem as a Unit; The
Farm Itself as a Unit; The Farm
as a Part of the Community.
(Elien Mumford, State Leader.)
National Crop Improvement Servlce.l
After having organized his various
'.ownship groups and obtained the
cq-opcrat.ign oj all existing organi
sations, the work which the county
agriculturist may do would include
ilt J?ast three Jnipfrtant php.Ses.
First, the 'iohsltkraiori o? specific
farm problem, Whether of farm crops
or of animals and animal products.
Second, the consideration of the farm
as a unit. Third, the consideration
of the community as a unit.
Up to date the emphasis of exten
sion work has probably been on the
first division and that of increas
ing the yields. But one of the di
tinguishing features of modern agri
culture js the dependence of the
farmer upon the market, and one of
the greatest weaknesses of modern
farming is its lack of adaptation to
the 'commex marketing conditions.
Here then is a great field for the
WOrk of district supervisors and the
county Agriculturist. We will need
many careiul investigations of mar
keting cor.flitTons in the different lo
calities for specific products and of
marketing conditions for the farm
taken as a unit and in its relation to
the community. An effort should be
made to control marketing condi
tions; with reference to the elimina
tion of waste and standardization o!
products; to securing for the farCfver
a fairer share of the price the -Consumer
pays; and for helping the con
sumer to obtain the products of the
farm more directly. The county agri
culturist will want to continue the ef
forts to increase yields both by his
own advice or by securing a specialist
to help him, but he will also see that
his work for the special crop is only
half done when he lias looked after
yields and then will turn his atten
tion to markets where again we are
beginning to develop specialists.
The Farm Manager.
The second division of his work
will be the consideration of the farm
as a unit. Here he will be on com
paratively new ground and will pro
ceed slowly and carefully, making
investigations into the most profit
able types of farming. The focus of
his attention will be not upon the
yields of a particular crop, but upon
the largest net income for the farm
as a whole. Of the four factors in
production, management is the crucial
No Robinson Crusoe Methods.
But we cannot stop even with the
successful manager. To stop here
would be at once to emphasize both
the strongest and weakest point in
the character of the American farmer,
namely, his strong individualism and
independence. Such characteristics,
are very valuable and we would not
try to destroy an iota of the farmer's
independent spirit and self-reliance
which are largely the result of th
training ms occupation nas given
him. But the conditions of success
ful farming have changed and the
self-sufficing era has passed. The
farmer now produces not merely
enough for himself and his family
but largely for a market and from
that market he buys many of the ne
cessities and some of the luxuries of
life. In other words, whether he will
or not he Is dependent upon others
for his highest success; he is a mem
ber of a complex organic relationship
we call society. To-day the most
successful farm cannot exist in an un
organized and indifferent community.
The success of a modern farm de
pends as much upon the kind of com
munity in which it is located as it
does upon the nature of the soil or
the individuality of the manager.

Tazewell County. Illinois.
National Crop Improvement Service.
Wherever I have gone in this
county, I have been impressed with
the prosperity of the stockmen. The
man having eome live stock has
generally conserved the fertility of
his land and practiced suitable rota
tion of crops. A crop of clover once
in four of five years is practically
essential to maintain the fertility of
Tazewell County land, and the stock
men have raised a suitable amount of
clover while the grain farmers have
not. Some grain farmers I have met
are selling their clover hay, and that
is as bad as raising none. Frequent
ly the price received for the hay is
not nearly as great as the value of
the fertility it contains. It is a no
table fact that the yields of crops
on this thinner soil of the hills in
Tazewell County "are very nearly as
great as those on prairie lands, al
though the hill farmers have worked
at a great disadvantage. Generally
the hill farmers have kept more
stock. Resent investigations of farm
conditions in Indiana, Illinois and
Iowa, show that while the yield of
the crops of the stock and the grain
