M E L V I N , STEELE JOHNSON EDITORS AND P R O P R I E T O R S . SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH 5. CORN ROOT WORM. A Serious Western Pest Advancing Kast- wanl--Southern Corn llont Worm. The farmers aud entomologists of the central states hove loiig known Diabro- tica longicornis say, the western com worm, as one of the worst pests with which they have to deal, and its recent progress eastward through Ohio hat heeii a matter of considerable interest E. D. Sanersou, writing from Cornell (N. Y.) nil i varsity to Couutry Gentle man, gives tho life history of this yest and the remedy, accompanied with illustrations. Tho eggs are laid in the early fall, within a few inches of the base of tho stalk, from one to five ^inches deep iu tho soil. The larvae hatch from June to August, and at first eat the small root- 1 lets entire, and then commence barrow- ing under the outer layers of the larger roots. If on a ricb loam, this causes the stalks to be easily blown, over, or small ears aud a general dwarfing of the plant if oil poorer laud. The adult; worm is nearly white, with brown bead, a little less than half an inch long, by less than oue-teuth of an inch iu diameter. Three pairs of short legs are fonnd on the segments immediately back of the head, but otherwise the long, cylindrical body appears perfectly smooth to the unaided ,--6y.e, though seen to have numerous 'hairs and bristles uuder the microscope. Before pupation the color becomes slightly darker and the body shortens, WESTERN COKN ROOT WORM. becoming more like a common grab. They then leave the roots, forru a small oval cell in the soil, transform to pupae, and in a short time come forth as adult beetles. The beetles are of a greenish or greenish yellow color and abcrat one-fourth of au inch long, resembling in form the common striped squash beetle. The adults are fonnd in the fields from the latter part of July until the corn silk becomes brown and dry, and often Inter, feeding upon the silk and pollen, tutis doing more or less damage, though alight when compared with that of tbe larvae. The remedy is so simple and effective that it wonld Etr:n that no one ought to suffer from tLicir injuries. As far as known they have never been injurious " to corn after a previous crcp of wheat, rye or barley, though tbe field may bare been infected before that, and n crop of corn is then safe for at least two years. Thos a simple rotation, which is also to be recommended on many other grounds, is. entirely effectual. Though corn is usually almost its only food, it ·nas been recorded eating various weeds, clover, beans, cucumber aud squash vines, apples of which the skin has been broken, 'cotton flowers, pumpkins aud various fuugi. Tho 12 spotted diabrotica (Diabrotioa duodecem pmictata', distinguished from the above by being larger and having three transverse rows of four L*ack spots on tho wing covers), wboso larva has very similar babiunndisvery injurious, by eating the corn roots throughout the south, has not been known to do so iu the north, but is everywhere exceedingly abundant, aud the food of the adnlt is most varied. The beetle is probably best known ns attacking squash, mel- SOUTHERN CORN ROOT on and cucumber WORM. vines, of which it eats voraciously both ·leaves and fruit, but has also been noticed as injurious to clover, cabb::ge, cauliflower, beans, beets, bops, cotton, chrysanthemums and various fruit tiees.

Here is what a Maryland farmer writes to American Gardening: No corn is wormproof. The worm is the boll-worm of cotton, bud worm of the northern states or corn worm when found in corn ears. Late fall or winter plowing exposing the pupa or hibernating worm to frost and natural enemies and trapping with lantern traps are about tbe only remedies practicable. Spraying fails to reach the rascals. Sent Hew York State Fair. It has been decided to bold the fifty- eighth annual fair of the New York State Agricultural society at Syracuse ' the week commencing Monday, Aug. 29, and to offer a premium list which will bring out tbe best exponents of'the industrial progress of the state.'. Benjamin F. Tracy, New York city, was elected president and James B. Docharty, Albany county, corresponding secretary. From Various Scarce*. William H. Caldwell, Peterboro, N. H., secretary of the American Cattle club, reports a marked increase of interest in Gneruscys. £2?s J The Pennsylvania Jersey Cattle club will be incorporated, application having been made for a charter. At a meeting of the Massachusetts board of agriculture there was a potato exhibit grown with this formula per acre: Nitrate of sodu, 240'.pouuds; plain -superphosphate, 400 pounds; sulphate "of. potash, 360 pounds;, tankage, 240 pounds; dried blood, 1,000 pounds.

' . . . - . - SPAPFRf FREAKS OF THE EYES. A Remarkable Illuatmtlon or a Cone ol Collective Hallucination. Examples of collective hallucinations are very numerous. Let us cite one that certainly is not generally known, and of which a lieutenant in the French navy, M. Les- tomiat, was the victim. "In May, 1881," said he, "I was on board the bark Caroline. We had just left Ilo'ilo, in the Philippines, aud we were traveling toward the Suntla strait. One morning we were moving slowly, at the rate oi about four or five knots, in n very light wind, when the man on the lookout shouted to me that he saw a pirogue or sharpie on the starboard quarter. Everything tbat we see at sea. however insignificant, is always interesting. Consequently, I placed myself in a position to see the object that the man reported. But, on account of the lower sails, 1 was obliged to go forward. Prom thore I saw, at about two points to starboard, the pirogue, which seemed as if sho was about to cross our bow. Suddenly the mate shouted: 'It is not a pirogue. It is a yawl boat.' Then the sailor came down from the rigging and reported that he saw distinctly a man standing in tho boat and that he was making signals. " 'It is not necessary to be alolt to see that,'replied the mate, can see him distinctly here.' "After having observed the boat with attention, I saw as plainly as possible, and all the crew saw just as I did, a man making signals with something in his hand that we could not yet recognize, but which evidently was a gaff or an oar at the end of which was fixed a piece of cloth. "There was no longer any doubt. We had discovered an unfortunate shipwrecked man, , whose vessel doubtless was lost upon the rocks of the shores called, if my memory serves me correctly, the Thousand isles. I immediately reported to the captain, who took his glasses and followed me to the forward deck. He recognized, just as we did, a boat painted white, and in the bow there was a man dressed in a blue gauzy, who was waving an oar, at the end of which was fastened a piece of sailcloth. " 'That poor devil is lucky,' said the captain; 'for if we had had more wind yesterday we would- have passed him in the night, and, of course, we could not have seen him.' "But as the current was drawing the boat away from us he gave the order to the man at the wheel to let the vessel fall off so as to get the boat well on our starboard. 'In this way we could easily reach it without the necessity of lowering a boat, which is always a tedious operation on board sailing vessels. The man, seeing that we were coming for him, ceased to signal, and sat down in the stern, and with his oar he steered the boat toward us. We coald distinctly see the boat's mast was broken at about three or four feet above the sailing thwart. When she was about 300 meters from us, the captain, who was on the poop, asked the mate if everything was ready, and, on the latter's affirmative reply, he gave the order to head her up a little to starboard. At this moment the emotion on board the vessel was intense. The entire crew leaned over the rail. Then suddenly, as if we all had been aroused from a dream, the man and the boat turned into a block of pumice stone on which were several branches of banana trees. After drifting slowly along the side of the vessel before the stupefied sailors it vanished out of eight. The men were so utterly astonished that several of theoi could-not help crying out: 'But, by jingo, there was a man on it, sure I We all saw him!' "If the sea had been rough, so that we could not reacb that little floating island, we would certainly have been convinced that a fellow creature had been left to perish. "Nevertheless our mind was free from all anterior preoccupation. Notwithstanding the spontaneity of the thing that had started it the suggestion was none the less vivid. Its intensity was as strong in the mind of the officer as it was in the mind of each sailor, and this goes to prove that in the case of a. crowd the mental quality of the individuals that compose it is without any importance."--Paris Cor. Courrier des Etats Unis. Glory the Only Fee. "And now," said the client as he was about to leave, "you really think I have a chance to winl" "Haven't you confessed that you are penniless and haven't I agreed to take the case?" the lawyer asked. "What do you want--an affidavit?" --Chicago News. Making Himself Solid. "Your little Jim seems to be popular with the other small boys." "Popular! The other day he asked if he could give each of his boy friends an apple, and when I came down stairs the entire barrelful was gone."--Detroit Free Press. A story is told of the late Baron Hirsch that .conveys a valuable lesson. After writing a message announcing the gift of a fortune to a school the £jreat millionaire went over the telegram carefully a second time, condensing it so as to save a franc. A report from the office of the registrar general of England contains the intelligence that 225 women reach the age of 100 years, while only 85 men out of 1,000,000 count the milestone of a century. The highest church spire in Europe is that of St. Walburg, at Pres ton, England. It is 303 feet. Englishmen drink five times as much tea as coffee; Americans eight times as much coffee as tea. Something Polished. "I got no use for football and all those rough games," said Con Mann, hitting his cigar to the other corner of his mouth and the cut to the top of the deck. "A smooth game is good eirough for toe." S3 CURE ALL YOUR PAINS WITH Pain-Killer. A Mediotne Chest [n Itself. [ Simple, Safe and Quick Cure for [CRAMPS, DIARRHOEA, COUGHS,!
