A 1'rvUncuant) Innect \Vhlch Fccdn Upon Harmful I'nntttlten. The insect Erastria scitula bolonffs to tho order or family of Lepidoptera (this order contains all insects having broad, thin and usually bright-colored wings, as butterflies, moths, etc.). This member of tho family is a small moth of vhe night-flying variety. It occurs most commonly iu foreig-u countries, but has lately been found in the western part of tho United States. Being of a predaceous (or preying) nature it lias como to be a factor in the life histories of numerous shrubs and trees, particularly the olives, feedinp as it does upon the coccidto (or bark lice) which infest those trees. There arc live successive annual generations. Tho first appearance of the adult occurs about the middle of May; the next generation about a mouth later. About the middle of July a third and very abundant generation is found; the fourth appears near tho end of August, aud the last a month later. The first and last generations are generally few in number owing to the scarcity of food at those seasons of the year. The egg-laying period lasts several days, each female producing about one hundred. They are deposited, one at a time, upon leaves or young buds, and are ofteu laid directly upon the backs of bark lico. As soon as hatched tho larva enters the bark louse, devouring the internal organs, leaving only the shield-like covering which is morn or less thick and hard. As soon as the contents of one bark louse has been devoured the larva abandons it and seekd another. . Burying itself in a new victim is but the work of a few minutes. When about tea days old tho : larva, while under the covering or shell j of one of its victims, begins tho con- I struction of a silken web about itself, using the bark louse shell as a frame- DARK T.1CK DESTnOTRR. fa, lurva rrom below, b. nutnu from abovo. c, larva !n ea«c. 0, case of full-grown larva, e, pupa. J, moth.] work. Openings are left for the head and feet, and it now crawls about carrying its artificial case and devouring several victims each day. The full- grown larva is much larger than a bark louse and as it pro'.vs its case Is built out with silk and fragments of its victims. When full-grown it searches for a favorable position ia which to fasten its case (usually selecting the angle formed by two ' branches or a largo crevice in tho barU), prepares Its cocoon and transforms to a puna. Before transforming, however, the larvto prepares a point of exit for tho future moth. Upon emerging from the cocoon the moth falls to the ground. Three or four minutes later its wings expand and it flies up among the branches. During daylight it remains motionless, holding its wings close to its body. Tho possibility of transporting the Insects from place to place has received attention. It is found that tne half-grown larvra . will live eight days without nourishment Nor will they destroy each other as is tho case with most carnivorous larvoo. Placed in bottles they can bo transported lonfj distances, aud tit tho end of the journey need only to bo placed upon plants or trees infested with bark lice. The cocoons containing full- prown larvto will also st:ind a journey of eig"ht or ten du.ys. In winter tho cocoons or eggs can be sent great distances, and there is no reason why they cannot bo acclimated in all countries where tho injurious bark lice prevail.

FOOD FOR THE DAIRY. TThy Farmen «:»nnot Afford to Feed II»y to Cour». Moat of the hay substitutes are substitutes in furnishing tho required bulk rather than in furnishing an equivalent in nutrition, and the practical question is how to use them in order to obtain increased dairy product.'i. The best feed is tho one which accomplishes most economically the object in view, and tho best use of a feed for dairy purposes is that which meets tho need of tho animal Coarse fodder, bay and hay substitutes are deficient in the nutriments best calculated to pro- duco a large milk flow. To insure this, these fodders must be combined with feeds richer in protein and fat to make a well-balanced ration. There is such an abundance of cornstalks and stover produced on most of our furma that there is no necesulty for our giving much attention to the less valuable coarse products till these are better utilized. Of tho crops ordinarily jfrown, the corn plant will doublcss furnish the larger part of tho hay substitutes. It would be of advantage if our farmers got more into' the way of growing other crops for winter feeding. The legumes (clover, peas, etc.) deserve to take a more important place in dairy foods. Not one of sixteen rations examined contained clover hay or hay or ensilage of the legumes. Some of the reasons why some of the legumes »r« especially valuable may be concisely stated as follows: Thoir large percentages of protein compounds—which sewve to form blood, muscle, bone and milk—and their consequent feeding value, which exceeds that of the grasses, corn fodder, corn stover, or straws. They may be used to supplement these fodders in place of the concentrated nitrogenous feeds, such as bran, cottonseed, linseed and 'gluten meals, etc. Hay from the legumes is twice or more than twice fts rich in protein us that from grasses. Their power of gathering large quantities of plant food from natural sources. Many, it not all of our common legumes acquire considerable quantities of nitrogen from the air. Their roots penetrate deeply into tho subsoil, and they thus obtain plant food from depths beyond the reach of plants with smaller root development. Their manorial value. When tho crop is fed, most of the nitrogen, phosphoric acid, potash and other fertilizing ingredients go into excrement, liquid and solid, and if preserved make a rich manure. The largo amounts of plant food left behind in roots and stubblu after removal of the crop furnish a cheap and valuable store of plant food for following crops,—Farm and Home. to the lact. Hut the wise woman did nothing so foolish. She imule the girl dress leisurely before a good lire. She taught her it is a groat ,mi.sLake to stand before a lool<ing-glu.ss to do the hair. It is better to sit and take it easy, else a tired expression comes into the face. She allowed no hasty washing with water to irritate the .skin, but refreshed her face gently with a cloth dipped in rose-water. She kept up a running commentary on the girl's points as she brought them out one by one, "Your hair looks bright'as the light fulls on it. I admire that pretty chestnut brown, with shades of red and gold in it. There, row your complexion looks as clear as possible. My dear, how bright and rested your eyes look! Now do use tho hand-mirror to see how pretty that curve of .your neck is, with those little -curls just waving about it!"

CANCELED POSTAGE STAMPS. KILLING THE BUGS. The Clover Machine DftTlsnd by a New York IIoriU-clUiiNt. Mr. 8. D. Willard, of Geneva, N. Y., describes in American Gardening the "bug machine" which is used on bis place in killing the curculio. It consists of un inverted umbrella-like contrivance made of sheeting, having a diameter of nine to eleven feet. This is mounted on a two-wheeled wheelbarrow, und it having a slit in ono side ending at the inverted apex tho man who operates it can readily push it under a tree until tho trunk is in th« center. Then, with a long, padded stick, tho operator strikes the limbs a quick blow and the curculloh fall upon the sheet, and tho wheelbarrow is moved on to tho next tree. Just under the center is a tin drawer into which C -f -0 B _« A FRESH DAIRY NOTES. IF your dairy has no pedigree, sta,rt one at once. THE cow with a ruffled temper will yield poor milk. ALL straw and no hay will turn a bright heifer into a dull cow. A GOOD way to choke it, valuable cow is to feed her uncut vegetables. A DIKTV strainer reflects as badly On the milker as on her who washes it. Too MUCH carbonaceous food in the dairy will make fat beef faster than butter fat A cow THAT begins to lose flesh before the winter is gone will be "spring poor" by the month of May. Do NOT let tho milk get cold before it is carried from the milking stable to the dairy house to bo strained. GIVE the animals plenty of room in the stable in which to lie down, if you would make them comfortable. SAWDUST in tho manure heap represents so much inert matter; land plaster is an absorbent that is also a fertilizer. To FEED economically, and yet sufficiently, give the cows only what they will cat up clean. Trying to stuff them beyond this limit will result in loss aud not gain. Do NOT feed tho hay down to the bare boards in the mow over the stable: for if you do tho Ingress of cold air from this source will result in a veritable exposure to your dairy. THINK twice before you go into tho business of raising veal calves by letting them suckle their dams.

She never thought she had any points; she had quite made up her mind to the irredeemable ugliness which she had been told was her lot. Then spoke a good, sweet, wise woman: "Ask your mother to let you come to spend tho day with me when next you are going to a party, and we will see what can be done." So tho poor, ugly duckling went, and this is what her fairy godmother did for her. She took her first for a short expedition, which interested and amused, but did not tire her. Then she gave her a thoroughly comfortable lunch, and made her lie down in a warm room for two or three hours. The short, refreshing sleep induced by the warmth and quiet ended, and a cup of tea enjoyed, the dressing began. Now, at home, the routine of the day had never been interrupted because there was to be a party that night. The regulation work and afternoon walk having been taken, the girl reached home tired, just in Mftnr Are Sent to Germany Mid Are U«cd In Decoration and In 1'aperlnir Konxnn. This country contributes some thousand dollars' worth of material yearly to the promotion of a fad long prevailing in (Jermany. The nvge for collecting postuge stamps, common enough here, is much more widespread in Germany, and for some time pnst collectors have been using canceled stamps for decorative purposes. Millions upon millions of stamps are used annually in Germany to paper walls. A room of moderate size may be papered completely with one hundred thousand stamps of the ordinary size. Persons who indulge in this fancy exercise great ingenuity in the arrangement of the stumps, nnd remarkable color effects may be produced by tasteful combinations. When the stampa have been affixed to the walls of a room, a tedious piece of work, the whole is varnished, in order to protect the papering from damage. Stamps and parts of stamps are used in decorating tables and cabinets. Those who do this sort of decorating laboriously cut out the head of Washington from the current two-cent stamp itnd paste tho little vignettes by the hundred upon the table or cabinet to be decorated. Then thousands of the tiny figure "i" are cut from tho lower corner of the stamp and disposed so as to form a border about the repeated head of Washington, Scores of other designs are treated iu a like fashion, and stamps of various colors are arranged in accordance with the taste of the decorator. One man in l^ew York, not himself a professional dealer in stamps, sends nearly 2. r >,OUO,000 stamps per year to a dealer in Germany. The same dealer lias an agent in Baltimore who sends him vastly larger quantities. They are sent to the agents from all parts of the east. Children in search of pocket money, women in need of pin money, Sunday-schools, and charities of one sort or another collect and send these stamps to the agents in batches of 10,000 to 20.UOO, 50,000, or 100,000. The usual price is 10 cents per 1,000, but the real 3-cent stamps fetch less because they are easily obtainable, and also because their dye is not well fixed. The Columbian stamps of srnail denominations fetch 30 cents per thousand. Itaru stumps fetch more, of course, but tho German dealer makes no special effort to obtain such 'stumps here. Many other dealers in Germany have long been buying large quantities of stamps in the United States, but as some failed to pay for their purchases it is now a little dillicnlt to obtain large quantities save through resident agents. The craze for stanip^ decorations has as yet made small headway in this country, though at least one collector in New York is inaking ready to' paper his room with stamps. — N. Y. Sun. They are graduates of the streets and slums, have no knowledge of books aud never read the newspapers for the best of all reasons. While shrewd and able to talk glibly, yet from the standpoint of the grammarian they talk badly. Nothing can be more admirable than the adroit manner in which they conduct their cases wheu under arrest They make no confessions under "sweating" processes, but frankly admit their offense—if caught in the fact and the stolen property is found in their possession. It is significant, however, and a sad commentary upon the efficiency of the law's administration that so few of the light-fingered reach Joliet. They are frequently arrested, but readily furnish bail and by means of continuances and divers other devices contrive, to stave off trial until prosecuting 1 witnesses disappear or die Nothing will daunt them and the; "carry off things" in the courtroom with as decided nonchalance, if no with as great elan, as tho Artfu Dodger under the same trying circum stances. The profitableness of the vile trade is shown in the fact that when arrestec j the pickpocket almost invariably has j money provided for his defense. The : most successful ones invariably dress well and spend money freely. It is scarcely possible to estimate the extent of their depredations, for the reason that their dexterity is such that a large majority of the victims have no consciousness of the robbery. When i they finally miss their pocketbooks diamonds, or other valuables they con elude they have lost or mislaid them: and, deciding that what has been lost is gone irrevocably, they say nothing about the matter.
