InBct Cnn He Measurably Eradicated Kcience MiiKt Aftalst Nature. In pioneer times ou this Coast if a jnan planted an apiile tree and it grew, and if he cultivated, pruned and watered it where water was needed it fruited abundantly and jthe tree was healthy and perfect. There were no worms in the fruit, no black scabs and blotches to mar its beauty, the foliage had no rusts and mildews destroying the func tions of the leaves, no borers in the tree trunks inviting decay, no scale bugs or wool' aphis sucking out the tree's life. All was perfect if the planter did his part. The same was true of the pear. How is it now V All who know any thing of the subjeut know that today it is hard to find a healthy, vigorous tree or a perfect, soend apple. All their in sect enemies and rlidases have been im ported, leaving, for the most part, all the enemies of the noxious insects be hind. , There is light ahead, and relief, in part, by nature' i own slow way. But we cannot afford to wait for that. We live tor today and want our fruit for to day. Here is an eiample of how nature helps us out of such troubles. Among the first pests to give a check to the vigor of the apple tree here was the oyster shell bark louse (I shall use no technical names) or scale bug us we now call them. It ' jis imported to this Coast from Etirqpe via the Eastern states. Reaching ere, the climate suit ed it and it bred , . J-ipread with great rapiu..Ti''inu2ie0',j I Mastered the appU tree.- ,,-, t '' fU iaiftropicnnUf1 scale, greasy st Jig the vigor of the tree. There was 'nothing whatever to interfere with it. It had nothing to do but eat, breed and sprRd. A subsequent importation of trees was infested by an exceedingly smajl and pretty parasitic fly, which graJually destroyed nearly every one of the first variety. And now in the older section, where this oyster shell bark louse was first intro duced, it is difficult to find a living spec imen. Yet their old scales can be seen by the million, each with a tiny hole in its back where our little friend, the fly, had made its exit to go on with the good work. The same thing wonld happen to nearly every one of our fruit and tree pests if we have patience and can afford to wait. But can we? Most certainly not, if we can do better, and we can. The destructive San Tose scale is an other example. It was introduced several years ago. It announced itself; "Neither trees nor fruit will you have if you let ine have my way, " The Ban Jose scale dou't he, whatever its other faults may be. In spieading, and ruin ing orchards it was a terror. The fruit growers of the state were all up in arms against it. Hundreds of sprays and washes were invented, concocted and used against it but the scale marched serenely on. Some checked it somewhat, making it possible to grow some fruit, But not one of the many things used could eradicate it. It is still a serious question. Among economic entomolO' gists, many believe it would have disap- peared much sooner if it had been left entirely alone. It is now disappearing very fast, being exterminated by a little gnat. It is being destroyed most rapidly in old settled places, where no spraying has been done and where only two or three years ago they covered everything. So they would all go could we find and scatter among them their most effective natural enemies to be found among other insects. But can we find and in troduce them? There is another point which must be -kept in mind. Any cause that weakens vigor or vitality in a life renders that life more susceptible to chronic diseases, This is especially so in vegetable life. Scale bugs, leaf lice, root lice and leaf feeding insects all weaken the tree they prey upon. Therefore, since our fruit trees have been preyed upon by lice there are more leaf, fruit, bark and root dis eases now than in pioneer days. There is absolute proof that a thoroughly sound, heahiiy, vigorous tree is quite re sistant to low forms of injurious insects and diseases while one low in vitality is the one first attacked. The same is true of the poorly fed calf or colt. They are found lousy in the spring and it is the weak chicken which is first attacked with lice and the first to die with roup or cholera. The man of low vitality dies first in epidemics and succumbs more quickly to malignant diseases. Then if we keep up the vigor of fruit trees by freeing them from the insects that are sapping their vitality away, we render them less liable to disease. If we can prevent the diseases we will leave them with vitality to withstand the drains the insects make on them. We can do both nearly nerfectly. How, will be considered in another issue of this paper. D. Wiek. The Off Year In Fruit Tree. Why do not fruit trees give a full crop each year? is often asked. This is a more important question in the Kasteru states than on this Coast. Here fruit trees git quite regular crops if well cared for. and if given the best riossibU care the yearly crops would be quite regular. The only reason why fruit trees generally bear a heavy crop one year and scarcely any the next, is be cause the trees were thrown into that habit while young, by allowing thorn to mature their first full crop without prop er pruning the preceding winter, and thinning the fruit properly after it had set. If this is done promptly and hero ically, and the tree given proper culti vation, it will have a surplus of nutri tion above what is necessary to mature the fruit, to form flower buds for a crop the succeeding year. Though as a rule wild trees left to nature give great crops only periodically. But they do not have artificial care as above. AUSTRALIAN SYSTEM OF VOTING. Section 31.

"I cannot neglect to express as my profound conviction that mutual ambas sadors to foreign powers are absolutely demanded by the Union which exists be tween Sweden and Norway. A change in the existing arrangements will not be compatible witb the stability of the Uniou." The other Swedish members ot the Cabinet expressed a similar opinion, but the Norwegian members declared them selves in favor of separate ministers and consuls. As to the best of their judg ment they did not think the union threatened by such appointments. The opinion of the crown prinoe and ot the Swedish onbinet members is, it is said, the king's own. li.lOUNbON is MAI).
