Marble Rock Weekly, The (Newspaper) - June 28, 1900, Marble Rock, IowaBuffalo tree Hopper. Info Matlob circular the numerous inquiries from different parts of this and neighbouring states accompanied by specimens of and branches showing the work of the Buffalo tree Hopper Lead us to believe that the Apple growing Public it be coming awakened to the abundance of this Orchard insect though not aware of the methods of avoiding the injury its numerous punctures. The facts drought Forth by correspondence with those who report the damage confirm the previously published deductions of this station where the True nature of these injuries was first made known. Upon inquiry As to the condition of the injured Trees during1 the previous an simple hat rack. It out at b bully astr the Hay rack illustrated herewith for use on a common High farm Wagon. Bide till Are two pieces two by four inches by 11 feet for a Low Wagon two by six inches is better. To these attach four by 3 inches on Bottom Edge by Means of half Inch bolts run Ding through the semicircular arms by 3 inches. Two pieces of one by four Are Laid on both ends of arms and bolted on so that the Hind wheels can operate Between and up through them. To Lush pc arc u Over wheels three pieces of Wood or Buffalo tree Hopper. A. Position Ovi posting in silts a the eggs a arranged As at c. Old scarred punctures Are shown at e. Gust and september it appears in each Case that the Trees were grown at that time in weeds and grass cultivation having been suspended for one cause or another and the Orchard weeds Al Lowed to grow unchecked. Inquiry from the same reporters As to the amount of injury in Orchards where cultivation was not thus suspended shows in such an almost entire immunity from the work of the pest. The inference is too Plain need argument. Clean Cul Ture daring the late summer to keep the ground free from the weeds on which the Young hoppers feed will protect the Young Orchard from attack. When the Trees Are already badly punctured the Only thing that can be done is to cultivate generously the com ing season to keep the injured Trees in the Best of Thrift and so assist Theiu in outgrowing the injury. It has bees suggested by some that the injured branches should be pruned out and the pests the next season but if such a plan were to be put in practice it would result in Many cases in the re Moval of entire Trees no part of the Small tree being exempt from attack. The eggs which Are Laid in August in the wounds in the bark Hatch the next May or june and it is suggested thai at the time when observation shows the Icse cts to be emerging it will be possible to destroy most of the tender Young by a Spray of kerosene Emul Sirn at a moderate strength. So much Reliance May be placed upon clean Cul Ture however that this spraying is not considered necessary though a prac tical method of destruction if done at the right time. Fooling the crows.

It was at a Stag banquet last week at the hotel Cadillac and a number of gentlemen of the Middle age Bald headed Genus were lagging behind in the reception Hall the younger Mem Bers of the society having taken their seats at the tables in the Ordinary. All were chatting and laughing with a vim that would have put the woman s whist Congress to shame says the free press. I go Home any time in the morning i Ciosse to n Mac. My wife molests me not. Her Caudle curtain lectures Iare reserved for some future occasion i presume but at present i m Safe. This is How such a state of things came to pass i returned from a Lodge banquet the other evening expecting to meet the usual White Robed recep Tion committee at the top of the stairs. I took Oft my shoes and creaked stealth 113 to my room adjoining that of my wife without being compelled to run the usual disagreeable Gauntlet. I chuckled inaudibly and Shook hands with myself As i disrobed and Lay me Down to dream of squads on Toast and broiled Shad As Well As other things that weighted Down my digestive apparatus but my mind As As Clear As a Bell. I was tranquilly gliding away into a close to the imaginary strains of Margery when i was aroused by a most unusual a most lugubrious noise. It sounded like the caving in of a potato bin and then there was a raucous shriek almost masculine in expense of hauling. Heir Jersey it has been reduced to m minimum by the building of Stone regarding the making of Stone roads the question is frequently asked whether the increased taxation does not amount to More than the advantages gained. State commissioner Budd of Jersey reports that before the construction of Good roads the expense of Cai Ting a few pounds at produce to Market was so great that Farmers where possible found it much cheaper to Send by car or boat. But now they Are purchasing Broad tread wagons which carry from 130 to 225 five eighths Bushel baskets of vegetables and fruits while before they Only carried from 30 to 50 baskets and Are returning with from three to five ton loads of manure. In the ferry leading to the Philadel phia markets this year the passage of teams per Day was counted carrying from three to five tons on each Load. Stone roads place the Farmers almost at the door of the consumer saving Many intermediates All of whom Are forced to have a profit.

It has been proven that wide tires Hunting the Road s Bottom. Make draft lighter and travel More rapid and at the same time maintain a uniform evenness and smoothness of the Road s surface which at once Marks them As Public benefactors. Note in the accompanying illustration the narrow tires Hunting the Bottom of the forming ruts that will make travel rough disagreeable for weeks and weeks. Wide tires should come into general use on country roads and no heavy farm Wagon without them should be driven upon any thoroughfare when the ground is saturated with water or after heavy Farmers voice. Spraying. A correspondent of the Farmers re View recently Virote that he had no Faith in spraying that if the Birds were protected there would be no need of spraying. The attention of the Cor respondent should be called to the fact that the prime reason for spraying is to prevent fungus attacks Stich As those producing the Apple Leaf Scab. Birds can have no effect in checking troubles of that kind. Spraying1 with Bordeaux mixture was first tried in Bordeaux. France to keep the boys from stealing the grapes. The owner of the Vineyard found that it Alro saved his grapes from mildew. Sow Birds have no effect on .
