During summer and an- bomn the root lice of two or three different species locate upon the roots and pump the juices which should go to tho growth of the plant and the formation of corn. Almost all of these underground species are to be dealt with entirely by treatment previous to the planting of the corn. Bulletin No. 24 from the Iowa station says: The wireworms, cutworms and god webworms are almost entirely confined to laud which has been in grass, and their injury can be largely prevented by early fall plowing of the land which It is intended to plant in corn. This applies as well to cutworms that may occur on land which has been in small grain the previous year and is plowed late in the fall after an abun- lanf growth of weeds. The habits of ;hese insects and the experience of planters generally favor the plowing of )od land as early as the 1st of Septem- oer. for the corn root worm is recommended » rotation of crops. Thorough cultivation is advised for root lice. For the insects that work above ground there are few available measures of treatment. We have the stalk borer, a small, wormliko insect, which bores into the stem, usually near the ground, and causes the stalk to wither. -No method of treatment to save the affected stalk can be recommended, but if they are pulled up and the worm destroyed it will assist the reduction of future injury. Chinch bugs may infest the field bom adjacent fields of wheat, rye, barley or oats, but can bo excluded by proper barriers at time of migration. The loaves of corn are sometimes catou off by grasshoppers, but this is always along the sides of tho field and adjacent to sod laud, where the eggs of the grasshoppers have been deposited, and can be avoided by destroying tbo grasshoppers during July by spraying the grass alongside of tho cornfield with arsenical preparation or by catching them with hopper dozers. Plant lice sometimes affect loaves, but it is rare that they demand any attention, except in plantings of sweet corn, whore spraying with kerosene emulsion will bo effective, Tho coru worm, or bollworm, of the south, which is injurious to cotton, corn, tomatoes and other crops, is quite common in many sections as a corn post. Tho attacks of this insect are such that it is a difficult matter to apply any direct remedy, but if it is remembered that tho injuries occur mainly upon early varieties it will bo soon that by planting a few rows ol particularly early corn tbo bulk of the injurious brood conn WOKM ou UOIXWOIIM. will bo uttniotod tothoso, and us soon as the injury appears thoao rows may be out up uud fud to hogH, aud thereby thu latMT ooru will bo quite fully protected. llluBtrutiuns ure presented ehowiug, 11 rut, tho gdiuu'iil npijouranoo of one of tlio BpcciciB of M'miwurwB anil tho wluH form; Buooud, thu uorit worm, injurtxi nur, lurvio, cocoon, pupa tuid moth.

FALL PLOWING-8UBSOILINQ, ii far Brmfting Stnbble — THe Druhiag-o nnd time For Old Farms. The Farmers' Review has taken the position that, no matter how dry aurt hard stubbles may prove in fall, they should bo plowed ns soon ns possible after tho prop is harvested and no mnt- tec how miBightly tho job. of plowing may leave it. Slow, hard work it is, to 1)0 mire, this tearing- of drv stnbbfesoi!, bin bc-UcT-jvut i'diir horses on one plow Ihnu le.wo tho work undone, uo,,pmaitcr how small a:i area is daily turned ovvr. It is not ronlly turned over, right).' 3p,';akiug, for tho Held looks as if aa aarthqnnke had caused a simultaneous eruption over the entire surface, but thn soil is exposed to the weather, and that is the uiaiu thing, no matter how unsightly the field may appear to the farmer that likes to seo neat work, Were it possible to explode, a dynn- mi* • cartridge upon every square yard of stnbblo land that has been plowed and cropped year after year the result would doubtless be m.irvelously good. Old, worn farm land requires ft vigorous shaking up, and it would be well could such an active agent. as dynamite be used for the purpose. Down south they plant apple trees in holes blown out by dynamite and report that trees so planted make twice as rapid growth as those planted in holes dug with a spade. The reason for this is simply that ;he subsoil is thoroughly shattered, so that the roots may ramify in every direction in search of food. The fall plowed stubble broken up when the soil is Iry appears a mighty aggregation of inge hard lumps, but by spring these lave disappeared, having been "weathered" down by the action of frost, thaw, rain, etc. The soil is now in a condition 'or spring work that could in no other way have been obtained, and so we say >y all means plow stubble in fall, no, matter how dry it may be. The fact that dynamite has been f ouud useful in preparing stubborn land for the reception of trees in the south is merely an argument in favor of subsoil- ng, and it seems probable that snbsoil- ng will have to be done sooner or later on many of our prairie farms. The rea- on that subsoiling has not been more practiced iu the west is doubtless that and has been okeop and plentiful f ar- her west, upon which crops could be grown without much work or expense or fertilizers, while the new buyer of the worn land, by thorough cultivation and lavish use of manure, has staved off the day when subsoiling will be necessary. Today there are many old worn 'arms which would respond more qnick- y to subsoiliug than to manure, aud the >enefits from the former would be no- iceable for years, yet the expense of ubsoiling is so great that little of it will be done for years to come. Before ubaoiling western lands need tile training everywhere, and lime freely applied would also do the old farms a world of good, but sooner or later, we >resnme that subsoiliug will kave to be nracticed.

L. Dixon and hit wife, A. A. Dixon, were appointed superintendent and matron of the state deal and dumb institution at Olathe. Dixon resided at Wichita. He has made affidavit charging Mm. Mary JD. Lease with advising him as superintendent of the institution to plunder the state to the amount of $20,000. This affidavit was handed over to the Republican state central committee. It states that Mrs. Lease approached Dixon and requested him to take charge of the Institution, promising him the place and also agreeing to make hfs wife matron. One month later she informed Mr. and Mrs. Dixon that she had secured tho positions and advised them to sell their household goods and be ready to go to Olathe at once. The affidavit says: "The first time Mrs. Lease met with the board after we had taken our situations, she came into the Matron's room and said: "Now, Judge, you have got a chance to make money. Pay yourself from the income of the institution and charge it to the maintenance and repairs of the institution. All you will have to do will be to make your books agree with the amount yon take." "My answer was: I can't do that, I never had that kind of a record." "She again remarked: 'You let about $20,000 go by yeu when yon were police judge of Wichita. Now yon take care of yourself. Don't be foolish. They aw all doing it, from the governor down. No worse tor yon than others." "The next time she approached me about taking money belonging to the state, she stopped over by herself, got off the train in the evening. After supper she came into our room. After talking a short time she again came to the money question, of what is called 'knocking down' money that is not yon own. "She looked at me very earnestly, telling me to take enough money to buy » farm; but not omit enough to buy her a farm. I then repeated my former answer that I could not do that. She then used a part of her former statement that they were all boodling. > "Then she went into a statement as to what the board of charities did after they had concluded their work over the state. All of them wanted to go to Chicago to the World's fair and did not want to use their own money. They decided thatit would take (60 apiece to make the round trip and board them. She said they ordered the steward to make up a voucher for maintenance and repairs, and the board allowed it, drew the money and went to the fair. This, she said was done at the insane asylum, Topeka. "She affirmed that I could do the same way in this case, all of which we notified the governor in due time, he ignoring our statement." Several months swjce Diaqn and. wHe were discharged from the institution upon the recommendation of Mrs. Lease. Pottage Stamp Theft*. WASHINGTON, Oct. 15.— The officials of the bureau of engraving and printing express the opinion that the losses of post- ' ago stamps by the thefts of Smith and his confederates will not exceed f 1,200 to $1,500. Up to this time four postmasters in different parta of the country in addition to the one at Ionia, Mieb., have made complaints of shortage in the invoices of stamps shipped them, but in each case the loss was very small. It is expected by the middle of. tho coming week they will have received reports from all postmasters whose shipments of stamps could- have been tampered with. William A. Beach, who waa arrested at Orange, N, J., and released, is now being looked after by the postal inspectors ut Now York and with his capture it is believed that all those who will be implicated will have been appro- bended. _ Printer Take* a Jump.

Smith is the same fellow who recently eloped with a Lincoln girl named Ida Clark. Before leaving Lincoln he robbed a store. He then came, to this city, and with -the proceeds of the stolen horse and buggy, Journeyed with the Clark girl to Wymore.
