yellow and black stripes running

stripes emitted a brilliant glow or

could be seen for nearly 25 feet.
The worm lighted up its Immedi

The worm moves slowly by the
use of six short legs, three on
each side near Its head. It feeds
on tender vegetation likV lettuce
and cabbage and works at night by
its own brilliant glow. In the

Cherry Growers Warned
To Spray Against Maggot
Growers in the new cherry pool
are being notified that unless they
spray for cherry maggot now their
fruit will be rejected by the asso
ciation. Nearly 200 tons of black
cherries are a' ready in ' the pool
and more are being received. So
far a definite limit' has not been
placed upon the tonnage to be
handled by the pool, which Is to
be managed by O. E. Brooks, of
route 3. He has hopes of receiv
ing from 10 to 14 cents a pound
for BIngs and Lamberts, the possi
bility being based upon reports
from other places.
Word was received from The
Dalles Thursday that one car sold
for 13.05 tor a 15 pound box,
prices f.o.b. -
The Salem cherries will reach
the fresh fruit market stage about
July 1. As other localities will be

anticipated that the local fruit will
command a good price and find a

. If you haven't traveled the Horseshoe
Route out of Merced to Yosemite in one
of the Pierce-Arrow touring cars oper
ated by the Yosemite Stage and Turn
pike Company, you've missed something.
But whether or not you have made
this trip, you'll be interested, as a motor
ist, in knowing that the twenty-five
Pierce-Arrow cars used in this service
are lubricated with Zerolene. The man
ager of this famous stage line writes:
"We have been operating a stage line since
1911 and have always used Zerolene. Re
cently we disposed of some cars that had
been in our service for ten; years, and dur
ing that period none of them had ever had
a bearing scraped."
Whether you drive a Pierce-Arrow or a Ford,
the use of Zerolene, of the proper body, will not
only cut down your oil bill, but give you greater
gasoline mileage, less carbon, lower upkeep
costs, and a longer life for your car.
Big users refuse to pay tribute to the old su
perstition that there is something mysteriously
"better" about "eastern" oils why should you
pay that tribute?
