sjO'invltti rnmmmilnitlntiii from nil person who lire

ymrtiuent. To Destroy Caterpillars on Trees.
Having observed several methods of
destroying the cnterplllnrs that InfeRt
apple-trees In the spring, audi ib rub
bing them off, burning them with shav
ings, cotton and turpentine, Ac, I am
induced to give you the simple and per
fectly effectual method practiced here :
Take common soft-soap, and thin It with
water so thnt It will not slip off the
brush, and a person may stand upon the
ground and npply It to the nests with a
common painter's brush, inserted in a
hole bored through one end of a long
strip sawed from a pine or other light
board, and all that it touches It will in
stantly kill. If applied while the nests
are small, very few will escape the first
application. After the worms are larger,
it is equally eflleactous, but much more
difficult to apply thoroughly.
Any thin oil, or oil mixed with spirits
of turpentine, Is equally destructive to
the worm ; but the soap is less injurious
to the trees.
Don't Rob the Birds' Nests. .
In the course of a recent lecture in
Farls regarding the uses of birds, an
estimate was formed of the damage to
crops by the robbery of a nest contain
ing five eggs. During the first month
each young bird eats on an average of
about fifty-eight flies or other insects in
a day. The aggregate, multiplied by
thirty, for the month makes 0,500 insects
to every nest. Every insect eats dolly
from blossoms and leaves an amount
equaling Its weight until it reaches ma
turity. It was calculated that in thirty
days each insect would damage thirty
blossoms, and thereby destroy thirty
fruits, and that 7,500 insects would kill
225,000 fruits. It will be well, therefore,
for farmers' eons to reflect upon the
damage done to their parents by the
wanton robbery of a single nest.
In selecting flour first look to the col
or. If It is white v 1th ayellowlsh straw
colored tint, buy It. If it is white with
a bluish cast, or with white specks, in it,
refuse it. Second, examine its adhesive
ness wet and knead a little of It between
your fingers; if It works soft and sticky,
it Is poor. Third, throw a little lump of
1 riotl flour against a smooth surfuce ; if
it fulls like powder it is bad. Fourth,
equeexe the flour tightly In your hand ;
if It letalns the shape given by the pres
sure, that, too, Is a good sign. It is safe
to buy Hour that will stand all these
tsts. These modes are given by all our
flour dealers, and they pertain to a mat

The Care of Colts.
If aeolt is never allowed to get an
advantage, it will never know that it
posKcsHCs power beyond its master's
control; if mad familiar with strange
objects, noises, rings, it will not be
nervous or skittish. If a horse is accus
tomed from his early youth to having
objects hit him on the heels, back and
hips, he will not attempt to run away
when a harness gives out or a wagon
runs against liiui. If all the colts in
this country could be managed for the
first few years of their lives by good,
careful, competent managers, we would
have a race of well-broken horses.
The souring of foods seems to add to
its value for certain purposes-: thus ex-
jriments have convinced many in the
belief that pigs thrive better on soured
food than any other, but is yet a mooted
question regarding the use of such food
for other kinds of stock. The souring
of food is owing to a change called the
lactic-acid fermentation, by which this
held (the acid of milk) is produced from
6ome of the carbonaceous principles of
the food. The same acid occurs in the
gastric juice of the stomach.
. Preserving Dried Fruits from Wcr.n..
In the spring, before the worms have
made their appearance (or even after
you can detect a few), wash your fruits
in a liberal quantity of warm water, as
if you were preparing them for cooking.
Shake the water from them, and dry,
either in the house or out, as may be
convenient. They will dry in a few
hours. And this time you will be too
early for the insects, and therefore se
cure the eating of your own delicious

healthy, an ill-aired house, and a dirty
bouse. Want of light stops growth
and promotes scrofula, 'rickets, etc,
among the children. People loso their

tycome ill they can not get well in it.
