San Joso scale has become so' destructive during tho last few years throughout fine southern limits ol the. apple bolt In the Central Western Statos that It threatens the destruction of the apple Industry. Realizing that the scale must be controlled or many growers would' bo driven out of the orchard business, the United States Department of Agriculture began as soon as practlcablo a series of experiments for controlling tho pest. Climatic effects, with more or less carelessness In spraying method* on tho part of many growers, Is responsible for an Increase in the spread, of scale. When the >scalo began to'In­ crease because of unfavorable weather Circular 263 discusses the methods' of spraying also was difficult and consequently not as efficiently done as necessary. Failure to spray during tho dormant season with liquid ltmo -HUl- ptmr had much to do with poor results. Because of the urgent need for relief based on preliminary results of the experimental work recommendations wore made by the department for tho control of tho scale and. so far havo proved satisfactory. Department jpraylng found to bo effective. Of all ilia Insecticides used In the expert- ftlOTHM OF URGE FAMILY Recommends Lydia E. Pink- horn'* Vegetable Compound to Other Mothers mental test* beat results wore obtained wit lithe so-called paraffln-oll or lubrlcatlnf-o!l emulsion. ' Through spraying with an emulsion containing 2 per cent of oil should clean up bad Infestation of scale. Although the time to spray is In tho dormant season, when'it 14 advisable to make two applications, summer sprays of oil emulsion will give a partjal checking of the scale. When this Insecticide to used during the growing season, precaution should bo taken to make the application during the cool part of the day. Injury to fruit and especially to follgae Is Hkoly to result from Ha use during extremely high temperatures. Methods for preparing the oil-emulsion sprays an.d tor their application as well as tho results ot the oxperl- j mental work ut various stations and sections of tho Infested orchard territory are given in this preliminary report." FARM GOSSIP Windom, Minn.—"I was so run-down that I was just good for nothing. 1 was to 1 become the mother of myninth child,and I thought I did not have" the strength to go through with It. I took Lydia E. Pinkhom's Vegetable Compound, and it has surely done all I could ask It to do and I am telling all my friends about it. I have a nice big baby girl and am feeling fine. Yon may use this letter to help other sick mothers." — Mrs. C, A. MOEDE , Box 634, Windom, Minn. ./ ~ My First Child . Glen Allen, Alabama.—"I have been 1 greatly benefited by taking -Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound for bearing-down feelings and pains. I was troubled in this way for nearly four years following the birth of my first child, and at times could hardly stand on my feet. A neighbor recommended the Vegetable Compound* to me after I had taken doctor 'B medicines without much benefit. It has relieved my pains and gives me strength. I recommend it and give you permission to use my testimonial letter."—Mra.lDA RYE,Glen Allen, Alabama. Tho Nowkirk family near CSeneaeo nro the largest wheat ralserB In Rico county and had about 1,450 acres this Beason. Jono iVirrls of near McCracken says he has 130 acres of premium barley In tho shock and the Job Is well done. The big rains in lhe\Elkhart territory spell moro broom corn than buyers can "buy or fanners can care for, it is said. Quito a uumher of the fanners near Ellin wood have started plowing the wheat ground -asain. The ground 1 B In oxcellont condition Tor plowing at this time.

Other means may be utilized in special emergencies, but tho ditch-log ImrrleiMa the first and moat impoirtant line of dorenso against the vast broods of young chinch bugs that will soon advance upon corn holds. Herbert I>r.esso and Virgil Curtis of Lamed arc said to have broken the record in cutting wheat. Thoy cut and 'bound 80 acres In two days and used only three pints of water, two gallons ot oil and fifty gallons of gaB. The hall storm at Colby last week dstroyod 60,000 acres of -wheat, a crop estimaied at 8 ,<KK >,000 bushels WRS cut to 7«4>,0O0 bushels. Many fhou- b-ands of corn and barley were also, laid waste. Tho track of the storm was seven miles wide. It Is extremely hard to cut wheat this year. It Is almost Impossible to get good bundles. Badly twisted, the wheat gooa up the elovators of the machines lu all ways and shapes and ["tho tmndlos are poorly bound and .when dumped onto the ground assume all manner of shapes. Jean Gray, west of Lyons, set a new record UIIH season when ho cut his entire wheat crop of 215 acres with a binder and had the entire crop In shock almost beroro headers started In other fields, iHo used a tractor and stepped right along. John Blessing has also finished 340 acres. The straw on Kansas wheat is extraordinarily long and It makes nearly twice the straw ot the average harvest, farmers say. Usually' It takes sibout twenty acres to make a good big stack of straw, r This year it Will take about six rtcrcB to make the same stack. Tho wet spring bus materially Increased the straw. There 1B stored up moisture enough In Rice county from recent rains to mature abundant crops providing it Is hoarded. A. I, Gllklson, county agont, urges that this moisture "bo corked up by keeping down the weed growth after harvest." Uepoated rains have encouraged weed growth, making It more desirable to plow early than for several seasons. M. K. Kllnconsmlth of Camaneho county reports that ho nad one peach tree this year which bore a few peaches, 'but, says ho, aB soon as tho fruit began to ripen, not only the birds but the ants "attacked tho fruit and caused it to decay. Mr. Klingonsmlth says that tho hlrdB nearly always got good portion of his grape" crop. Ho has tried putting sacks over the fruit to protect it from tho birds, apparently with good results. j Judge F. W, Truesdell, who has been adjusting hail IOSBOS In Rice county, returned last evening from a trip north and wost of Chase with word that there are hundreds of acres In that section which have Bcarcoly been touched by harvesters. In the Sterllng-Alden vicinity practically all cutting is finished. South ot Chase aibout two-thirds of tho fields are cut, but towardB Bushton it will probably bo the mlddlo of tho week 1 >efore headers and binders can stop. JClmar Conard ot Pawnee county, says that tho hall was six inches deep In the draws on ho went homo after the storm. He had bought $-200 worth ot twine with which to harvest. After the storm, which harvested his whoat for him In a few minutes he returned ft to tho merchant, who willingly took it back. Many farmers were caught with a large amount of twine on hand with which they had Intended harvesting, and when the hall destroyed their wheat had to return the twine, which the merchants Willingly accepted. William Porter, an old wheat raiser of Rice oounty said he would sell his whoat from tho machine right now even though it la bringing only 80c a bUBhel. "Over a long period of years I found It paid to sell my wheat right after harvest. Sometimes It advances in price later but the shrinkage la alwayB considerable and a man should be able to use the money It brlngB to earn from Blx to eight per cent Interest, perhaps more. Wheat iu bins is as good as money but It Is bringing no Interest—Is earning nothing," Ire said. MILLIONS VIEW U. S. EXH1BTS Portable' Displays by Department of Agriculture Prove Very Effective. The use of portable exhibits Is one of tho very effective means developod in recent years to bring the findings ot the United States Department of Agriculture boforo the people of the country. That, this method has become popular is Indicated by the estimates made on tho number of people reached last year at various types of fairs, shows, and meetings. The Office of Exhibits prepared attractivo models, scenes, and charts for use at 100 places In this country and for the Brazilian International Exposition at Rio do Janeiro, Brazil. Hough estimates, based on attendance at the various places, indicates that department findings were communllcatod to nearly 8,000,000 persons In this country , Of the 101 exhibits made, 3 wj)re at expositions of international BCOPO , 1 at Chicago, 1 at Portland, Org., and the other In Brazil; 23 were at State fairs or shows of similar nature; 11 at interstate fairs; 28 at regional fairs; b wore presented during farmero' weeks at agricultural colleges; l at a national show In St Paul; and 80 ot tbo meetings are classified as miscellaneous. Thoy were held in 43 States, tho District ot Columbia, and 1 foreign country. Along with the Improvements in the type of exhibits sent out by tho department has come a greatly increased demand for them from many parts of the country. So far it has been impossible to comply with all the requests. Tho exhibits now used are designed to convey, In a way to pursuade acceptance of recommendations mado as a result of departmental research, lessons concerning crops, products, or Ip-actlces. Distribution la carefully looked after so that different amotions will get only such exhibits ua will bo of greatest. Interest thero. State colleges and various organizations cooperate with the Department of Agriculture In making exhibits, which has had a beneficial effect lu stimulating closer cooperation. The government had ,-i fine exhibit at tho Kansas State fair here last year and will be here again this year. sXp one need be without " Jresh "Live" air! Balanced Evenly.

"Since the beginning ot 1922," says J. S. Wade, ot tho United States Department of Agriculture, "thero has boon very little chango in tho corn borer situation In tho United States." However It may Bhow up most any place this year and if any now bororB are noted working in the corn, or other plants, better play safe and send specimens to your state agricultural college at once.

Pk »M 25 O H, MERCY, what a mess I" said Mrs. Malone as site sweated over her cookie board hi her hot, stuffy little kitchen. "Oh, dearie me! Oh dearie me! Where do they all come from ?" said a little Doo Dad Mother, as she was rocking her little Doo Dad baby to sleep. And well she might wonder, for flies—big black hungry flics—were everywhere and from the East they continued to come in great swarms. Just a few days ago, Doctor Sawbones had opened a new candy shop. It had nice shiny show cases and they were fairly crowded with sweets. Just like an army, the flies came from over the hill and headed straight for the candy store. Doctor Sawbones is almost distracted. In the front door he stands with a fly swatter in each hand and all day long he is swattching at the horde of flies. He called Flaunclfeet to help him, but Plannelfecl has nothing but a handkerchief and his billy and the flies buzz and buzz and bite his nose. Doc, had also given a swatter to a little Doo Dad. A fly lit on the big plate glass window of the candy shop and—the little Doo Dad/sSvatted it. Poor Doctor Sawbones will have to buy a new window for his store. In the house across the street the flies buzzed and buzzed and buzzed. There were a dozen or more of them on the window and the little Doo Dad lady threw her ilat. iron at them. Now the flies will have no trouble in escaping but,— more may come in. The little old Scotch vendor has been doing a rushing busim-s in sticky paper and su-attcrs. Tiny has one on each em*. I am afraid there won't be many eggs left in the little wagon when Tiny will have finished. It wouldn't surprise me, cither, if Nicholas made Tiny go without hi' supp'-r for killing thc_ fly that had settled on his ear. I am quite sure that the little lady Doo Dad, in the upstairs window, caught the flies that were lea tine, <ni the pie she had placed on the ledge to cool. She may have to bake another pie, though. Old Sleepy Sam is in luck! A wise spider saw a great opportunity and quickly spun its web. Soon it should have a good dinner. Roly has a new kind of trap. I wonder what he will catch? Surely IVK. a-t many flies aas the little fellow who has placed the piece of ehec e on tie lamp post. The little Doo Dad missed the fly that wis scaini» ring around on Old Man Grouch's r.osc. 1 wonder—1 just wonder what Old Man i.iroucil is thinking. .. • . ^ i
