THE DUST SPRAY.
Ita Advaatasee and Disadvantage.
Machine and Formula.
In response to general Interest In the
subject the Country Gentleman has
collected InformaUon from various
fruit growers and also presents a cut
which gives some Idea of the construc
tion of one type of apparatus or dust
spraying. The cylinder Is the dust box,
and the wheel works the air blast. D.
W. Maxwell says:
Lime being your conveyor, you have
t basis upon which you can make a
compound with perfect safety to your
foliage that will exterminate Insect
life. You will never see any discoloring
of fruit It gives you a perfect foliage.
In the liquid process you cannot have
thorough work, but In the dust every
particle of the tree is covered; not only
that, but everything around It As a
fungicide there Is no comparison of the
two methods nor In destroying the enn
kerworm and codling moth. You can
apray from forty tp fifty acres in a day
of trees from fifteen to twenty, years
old at one-half the expense of liquid
spraying; cost of material per tree, 8
cents. By our experience we have per
fected a formula.
i How to Make the Bprjy ,
One barrel of fresh lime,! 25 pounds
bluestone, B pounds concentrated lye,
29 pounds powdered sulphur, S pounds
parls green (pure). ' Increase the parls
green to 10 pounds for cankerworms.
Break the lime Into small pieces and
put it Into a box 3 by 6 feet Dissolve
the bluestone In boiling water, 6 gal'
Ions., Dissolve the lye In B gallons hot
water. Keep the two solutions sepa
rate. Take a sprinkler and sprinkle the
solutions on the lime. If not enough to
slack Into dust, use water. Cover over
the dust when through slacking. Make
a sieve of fine wire and attach a long
handle. Sieve out the dust Rub the
sulphur through sieve Into the dust and
put the parls green in. Stir thorough
ly. Be careful not to get the dust too
damp. Your compound Is now ready
for use. Spray Just before the bloom
opens, then as It drops, then once a
week until you have sprayed six times,
then once every two weeks until the
1st of August.

that the dust process cannot take the

bwecrjcldes In: all cases,;, but that In
iikny' UisWu'cps It Is Just as effectual,
wnlle'ln'sijrew It seems to be more ef
fectual. , .Where one has a number of
ainalr plants, such as cabbages, straw
berries and the like, It frequently hap
pens that the dust process Is more ef
fectual than the liquid and also has an
advantage over the liquid process, In
that It Is much more readily managed.
On the other band, In spraying large
orchard trees It Is not as effectual, es
pecially for the codling moth, as is the
liquid. Many orchards ara located on
steep hillsides, where It in practically
impossible for a team to draw a heavy
load of water. The ground in other
orchards Is so soft during the spring
that it Is practically impossible to
draw a heavily loaded water tank
through the orchard. In still other or
chards the location is such that It is
Impossible to obtain sufficient water
for the spraying. In such instances
It becomes a matter of using the dust
process or none at all.
Handy In the Garden.
For the garden the dust process is so
much lighter that a person can readily
carry the machine and do the dusting
that would require a barrel of water In
case of the liquid process. The dust
process also has an advantage In that
In' Vuany instances It Is much "more
readily made up, and many people will

they will not go to the trouble of using

chine readily floats In the air and' la

wind, so that in diluting the trees on
should be careful to see that the dust
does not blow In the face, otherwise

In the use of the dust to apply It early
In the morning while the dew IS" upon
the plants or soon after a rain, and It
Is bIbo well to apply the dust when
there Is a slight breeze.
