These are p.ile green caterpillars, which grow lo an inch and a quarter long, and cat holes in (he leaves, flnnlly devouring the plant. They arc hatched from eggs laid by white butterflies; and as .soon us these nrc seen flying about the gnrdcn, begin dusting with Ihc same calcium arscnnte nnd gypsum mixture upcct against cucumber beetles; or with rotcnonc. Aphids also ntlack Ihc cnhbnf'cs, and protection should begin as soon as lint weather comes. They are likewise found on pens. There arc red, black and green apbids, but those on vegetables nrc usually pale green. They cling lo the under side of leaves, or on the growing ends of stems of many vegetables, multiplying with ama/.- ing rapidity. Use rolcnonc, py- rcthrum. 01- nicotine dust or spray, immediately first specimens are detected. Asparagus beetles arc blue-Mack with lemon spots, one-quarter inch long.

Swift's Newly Developed Provides These Essential Minerals Needed in the Feeding of HOGS-CATTLE-POULTRY: * CALCIUM and PHOSPHOROUS * IODINE * SODIUM and CHLORINE * COPPER * MANGANESE SULPHATE * ANISE * FERRIC OXIDE (Iron) * COBALT SULPHATE There is no need to run the risk of mineral deficient rations. Thousands of farmers have discovered th«t by feeding Swift's Mineral to all livestock they can provide just the minerals needed with home-grown grains—at low cost. A product of the famous Swift Research Laboratory, this feed was developed by nutritional scientists to provide, in correct proportions, the 70 essential minerals needed with home-grown grains. It is the experience of livestock men that Swift's Mineral helps hogs make faster, more efficient gains, and is especially helpful during the gestation period when bone-forming minerals arc so needed. Because Swift's Mineral is rich in milk- making calcium and phosporus, it is an important feed for nursing sows and for dairy cattle. Producers of beef cattle feed it to supply the minerals lacking in range feed and concentrates, Buy Swift's Mineral Supplement And Soy Bean Meal At Blytheville, Ark.
