By XEA Service DENVER.—Probably the greatest i'rsucl nest groin farmers have ever known, (he grasshopper, has appeared in huge numbers in the fields of Colorado, Texas, Montana, North and South Dakota this year. And because of the belief that a dry season heralds n ssrlons outbreak of the Insects the following year, farmers in this section, which experienced an extensive drought this year, are being urged to prepare poisoned bran bait for the pests before they get beyond control. Grasshoppers have been a plague to man ever since Biblical times. Even ancient Indian writings tell of vast clouds of these insects swooping down on green fields and devastating them. They have been especially damaging In the west and middle west. Large acreages of grain have been laid waste' by the voracious insects. One of the most dramatic stories of the west is written about them. It occurred during the Mormon occupation of Utah. The story tells that grasshoppers one seasor were devastating grain crops and the Mormons were facing starvation. The Mormon church prayed in a body for deliverance from Ihc pcsls. Saved by Sex Gulls As if in answer to their prayers, uncounted numbers ol sea gulls appeared to deliver Ihe Mormans from the plague. The sea gulls ^devoured the grasshoppers. In appreciation for Ihe help, tlie Mormons erected o monument lo the sea gitl in Tcmplr Square, Salt Lake City Grasshoppers, both young and old, Injure crops In only one way: by gnawing and devouring them v.-liolcsale. Where very numerous era Africa, Egypt, Greece, Ru mania and Palestine IhLs year. There poison, fire, flame-guns, air Dalies, equipped with spraying :\p jjiiiatus, lanks nnd oilier weapon; are boing ussxl In control of Ihe pest. The grasshopper should not be contused- with Ihe 17-year-old cicada, commonly called "locust," in the Untied Stales, it docs little damage, and Is the longest-living insect known.

Poison Bran Mash Probably the best melhod of combating the insect is the poisoned bran mash suggesled by the U. S. Departmcnl of Agriculture. As prepared for ordinary use, it is composed as follows: Wheat bran, 12'.; pounds; crude arsenic or Paris, green. cne-haK jxmnd;. lemons or oranges, ^lirec; finely cropped fruits; "black strap' molasses, oiie nirart; waler, one to two gallons, according lo climatic conditions. The bran and arsenic are thoroughly mixed while dry: the fruits are then finely chopped and added, and lastly, the diluted molasses Is poured over the bait and thoroughly kneaded. This amount of poisoned bait is sufficient to treat about IVi acres when the grasshoppers firsl halch. Birds Are Nature's Weapons Wild birds piny a great part in the natural control of grasshoppers. From the largest hawks to the tiny hummingbirds there are no exceptions other than the slrtctly vegetarian doves and pigeons. Domestic fowls are also fond of grasshoppers and feed greedily upon them whenever possible. What are known as grasshoppers in the United States are most often called locusls elsewhere, nna while Ihc species arc dlfferenl, there is a close kinship between them.
