Cattle Comes Second In Indiana,

the poultry and egg industry of Indiana?

I have been making some figures on the
proposition, he continued, and I find that
the chicken and eggs product of the state
last yea i was sold for more money than
the whole cattle product in Indiana,
Those are rather startling figures, but true,
At the meethjg of the farmers' congress
in this city the other day the poultry and
egg product was touched upon and some
of the members asked the statisticians of
fice to prepare some figures on the subject.
M r. Geeting spenl several days this week
looking up figures. He finds that in I904
the value of the poultry and eggs sold in
the stale was $o'053,o24. Thecattlesold
during the same year was 58,334,120,
The sheen industry, including the wool
clip, aggregated $8,000,000. Deputy
Gceiing's research showed him that ovei
5 1, 000,000 dozens eggs were gathered
and that 1,240,057 dozen poultry was

Ducks Have no Crops.
It will be a surprise to many people to
leam that the duck has no crop like othe
domestic fowls. The food passes directly
from the throat into a lajge, roomy duct
which opens " directly into the gizzard.
For this icason duck! need soft food, and
when fed such lood ' it Is quite necessary
for them to have water where they can
drink when the food refuses to pass down
the passage which takes the place of a
.if t .!
crop, it is also, tor tnis reason inai smiu
i mixed with thctr feed, which passes
through into he gizzard and aids grinding.
Ducks are fond of all'fkinds of gicen
food and vegetables. They are fond of
ooiatocs when they aie prepared in such a
nnnnerthat tney can easuy eai mem.

SOME SUGGESTIONS ON
KILLING THE CUT-WORM
Thousands of newly-set fruit trees,
grape vines, etc, did every spring "un
accountably." ' Usually," too, the nursery
man who'furnished the stock is blamed;
when, in reality the trouble is often A
climbing cutworm who comes, like a thief
In the night, to fcif oh' the" swelling, lus

he crawls down 'and hides iw the soil or
unde; a stick. Qh, he's a Sly. fellow!
Take a lantern, some - pighPaftcr fruit
buds have begun to swell, ahd Mr. Cut
worm will be caught on the trees, "red

hunt and 'destroy him: but there's an
eaaicrway. - , Si

How many cousins, uncles and aunts
this cutworm has would take a lot of room
to relate. Some of his relatives do not
climb, contenting themselves with biting
into the1 ba'rk stems of tender vegetation
like' cabbage, corn or tomatoes;' some
Coumds are white, and some arc yellowish,
gicenish or grayish; some are short, and
some are longer.
Fortunately, this nrcedy wo?m has

etc., toads, and even spider. But these
good friend ( of the farmer can not do it
all. No. The farmer should help
Several methods of combating cutworms
have been . invented, but Tor medium-size
areas the best way we know is to "fence
'em out." Not with a rail fence, or a wire
fence or even a stone fence. Easier tharr"
that! lust a tiny barrier 6T paper. That's
The picture gives the idea- Cut some
stiff tar-paper into stups about nine inches
longsand two or three inches, wide. Put a
strip,around a tree trunlc, '. tightly lap' the
edges an inch or more, and push the low
cr half of thechcle into the soil to anchor
it and to prevent worms from from easily
buirowini? beneathT It takes bui a short
timc-and only a few cints-thus to protect
several hundred newly-sct trees. '
Forcabbage plants, etc., a smaller band
may prove-more convenient. All that is
to have the paper at least an inch and one
half away from all parts of.the plant or tree;
to have the edges lapped tightly; and to
make'sure that no worms are'.hid in the
soil' between the paper and' the r plant.
Any kind of stiff paper, or wood veneer,
ortin.will do; we prefer tar-paper because
it is lasting and cheap.
An orchard prgarden thus protected is
safe for many weeks-until cutworm danger
is mostly over. Just why the worms do
not "climb over the fence,'' is a puzzle.
But they very rarely do. The writer of
this article has watched them in his own
orchard at night, seen them climb up the
paper fence on the outer side, crawl all
around the top, reach inwards in a vain at
tempt to touch the encircled tree, and
then sullenly, disgustedly crawl down
on the outside, the way they had come!
That they do not often crawl down on the
inside! is a curious fact.
Another way of fighting cutworms, is to
scatter bunches ot poisonea vegiation
(clover, weeds, etc., moistened with paris
green and water) here and there in field or
orchard. Some people recommend
poisoned bran too. But, personally, we.
prefer not to scatter poisoned eatables
about the farm, so long &'s fre
enough paper fences.
