An Indiana County Game and B'ird .Protective League chairman says: • :., Farmers of Tippecanoe county, if you value > yonr orchards, put up blue bird boxes in. them. Blue birds live on coddling moths; the. gypsy and brown tail moth, weevils and cut worms. One pair, of blue birds 'in your orphard-;will be-worth .many gallons of Insecticide, will cost noth- liug and .will not 'poison the fruit blossoms for 'the T»ees. ••':.',.• .'Put up the .boxes now. .Blue._birds return in .-February and seek for a location', 'before we know they are here. Moreover, the houses should be well seasoned and" weathered. They should be 12 inches deep by six inches wide, with en-trance hole the size of a 50-cent piece,-and a sharply slanting roof 'almost over the hole which will help to keep out the sparrows.\ ' Then, if, blue birds' take the box (for there are •few of them left) paint the trunks of the trees with, a 'thick circle of tar ,or circle 'it with sticky .flypaper and strew the ground around it, if cattle are not in the orchard, with thorne .tree branches,, to" keep away the cat. Guard that brood «f blue birds, if you have it, as you would a gold mine. _It will be worth that to you. And while you are preparing for the blue birds, why not put up a the air have nests, but the martens Foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests, but .the martens have no longer any refnge unless we provide au artificial one.. Martens- will free your premises ot./'mos- quitoes and obnoxious insects if they j can overpower' .the sparrows for possession. of the house. Help them to .--do so by, killing the sparrows.
