Three ladles who were only 40 or 60 feet away wore considerably, shocked by the electricity and badly frightened. It appeared to them as though a large ball #f tiro of vivid brightness, accompanied by a stunning report, descended from the topmost branches of the tree to the ground. A smell as of burning sulphur pervaded the air for a few minutes after the occurrence. A distinct mark is visible down the north side of the tree to within about 0 feet ot the ground where It turned to the south side and ran to the earth, a pi Inters from the tree and fence were scattered 20 feet In all directions.

Other va- iotlcs will do well one or two years longer. The Secretary read the following: IHDS AND INSKOTS; WHICH IO KILL AND W1IICU TO FHOTECT, ANJt HOW. This subject is too largo to be fully die- HBsed in a paper like this but as the question a oltou uskod andeomo of our members liav- ng requested that it be dUcussed ut one ol ur meetings, I will give some general noughts on the uubjcct. Why kill either birds or insects and j ffhen 'I fa. as fruit growers, know to our sorrow that oth birds and insects at times do us great amago and some persons come to the con lusiou that we must wage a continual war of xtermlmitljn against those foes. I, for my 'ftrt, do not think so and have followed a .iffereut course. I make war only on such irds and Insects aa are doing me a positive njury and only when they are dolug it. Moat Irila do us so little damage that the good hoy do probably overbalances the harm and n my experience of over twenty years I have ever had to make war on but two kinds ol Irds, the Cherry bird, or Waxwing, and the irlole, both ot ihusa I have killed by the housand and find that a No. twelve broeoh- oader, with plenty of sheila loaded with No. ten shot in the hands of a boy tun to llftoen ears old, is about the best means to do it with. But, aa uUovo indicated. 1 never kill ny birds of any kind except wnilo I can by o doing protest my crops. There Is, how- ver, one exception to this rule and that is bo Knullsh sparrow. I kill them whenever 1 an find them on uiy place, us Ipieleruur native birds, which the sparrow will drive on f allowed. There are Home birds that never do s any harm and should bo encouraged to iroou on our promises. Foremost among these consider the Wren and Bluebird. These an easily be encouraged to do so by putting p boxes lor thorn to ntibt In where they will 0 secure Irom disturbance by their food, specially the cat, Urows and hawks should also bo protected which to some ot you may sound strange, as jy many these birds are considered great lulsanoes. The ciow. I think, never doeu us any damage except when ho pulls some latu iluuted corn, which can bo prevented by iluntlntt the corn HO deep that the grain will tot oome up when the crow goes to pull It up r by tarring the seed before planting. Tbo row tan knowing blid and,like uiysoli.iH not o fond ol work as to do It when It don't ay, so if ho lluds the corn la tarred and unfit oeat, or If the young slioots break olf and OKve tlui uralu in tlio ground ho will leave your Held in disgust and try aouie other, liut 10 doubt you will ask why not kill the hawks? Jon't they kill chickens? X answer yea, some- linos, and when they do, I kill that hawk, tut hawks live largely on Held mice and liould, on that account, bo lot alone except when one gota a tust» of chicken meat und oes to raiding the barn yard. 1 want to speak a good word for the skunk, 'his little nnlinal, despised imd killed by al- noet everybody, la one of our beat friends, vlngaa it does almost exclusively ou Insects nd unlike most insect eating creatures the uaoots which It outs are largely injurious, And.whilu 1 am about It, I wish to say don't .111 the BiuikuB, oxcept the rattler, which I ollevo is the only one that la really polson- uu In our section of country, Snakes are rout destroyers of Held mice und do us no arm whatever.
