Th late maneuver of the French
fleet of evolution at Toulon, says the
New York Herald, have demonstrated
the usefulness and advantage of hominR
pigeon for naval purposes. During
tl sham attack on the port of Toulon
the trained pigeons of the central sta
tion were distributed among the
scouts and torpedo cruisers which wen
stationed to watch the approach of the
enemy's fleet. The pigeons were re
leased at intervals, thus enabling the
prefct maritime of the port of Toulon
to In; soeedilv informed of the approach
and movements of the attacking fleet
and to keep in constant communication
with the ships of the fleet defending
The naval messenger pigeon service
was established in France by Admiral
Ucrgasso Dupct'it-Thouars several years
ago with . hcadiiuarters at Toulon.
Every man-of-war leaving Toulon Is
provided with au outfit of homing
pigeons, which are released at various
distances according to the stage of their
respective training. With a few ex
ceptions they return to their home lofts

A loft has been established on ooara
the gunnery practice ship. St. Louis
with the view of accustoming the
pigeons to the report and- smoke of
guns. .They follow 'the vessel in lier
cruises, and never mistake, her for1 an
other. Their usefulness has been especially
demonstrated whenever the ships of the
squadron were beyond the range of the
heliograph, as they enablod the com
mander of, the fleet to Ci-mmumcatc

Difference of Opinion Regarding Sprays
In recent editions of this paper were
published lectures on orchard insects
and horticulture delivered at Stanford
university by the most eminent special
lets of the country. We published those
lectures as the views of authorities on
those Questions so important to orchard-
ists. Professor J. B. Comstock is a rec
ognized authority of this country on
matters pertaining to what we call scale
bntrs or bark lice. He is thoroughly
posted on the economic science of ento
mology. He may uot have the practical
knowledge on the subject that they have
who are constantly observing ana con
tending in the orchard and garden.
He could not go into minuteness of de
tail that is necessary in taking care of
orchards in a short lecture. Some things
of seeming unimportance are of the most
value to the practical orchardist. Many
of the most valuable little details were,
perforce, left out of his lecture, as pub
lished at least. Mention was omitted ot
Hie best and surest means of freeing or
chards of insect pests. Namely, the in
traduction of paraaitio and cannibalistic
insects, whose special office it is to feed
upon the noxious insects. It is unfortu
nately true that in our efforts to destroy
scale bugs by washes and sprays and
even by fumigation, the most perfect of
all known means, we have been killing
only a small percentage of the scale bugs
and at the same time every one of the
parasitic insects. With washes we drive
from the orchard the insect eaters such
as ladybugs, soldier bugs, beetles, etc
Fumigation kills all insects except a few
of the scale. I believe there is no case
on record of killing all the scale bugs iu
an orchard evan by the most perfect
Professor Comstock gives as his opin
ion that the best of the winter washes is
the resinous wash, especially on decide
ous trees. He is right in saying this
wash will come nearer destroying all
the scale bugs than any other, yet I can'
not agree with his recommendation,
The lime, sulphur and salt compound
is nearly its equal for scale and its effect
in destroying the germs of many of
the worst iurms of fungarial diseases is
most valuable. Another important
point left out is that these washes for the

should not be a clean, dry gravel, but
should have sufficient clayey or earthy
matter to give it the binding quality
Any pebbles greater than IU inches
diameter should be screened out, The
accepted way of constructing a gravel
road is to lay down a layer about four
inches thick and roll it thoroughly with
light roller, keeping the gravel wet
while it is being rolled. Then add a
second layer, and treat it in a similar
fashion, and finally put on a top layer,
rolled with a heavy roller. The sides of
the road should be rolled first and very
compact, and then the middle: in this
way tbe middle, which receives the
most of the wear, has the compact sides
to resist the spreading of the material
and can be rolled very hard and solid.
A gravel road well constructed will have
a substantially impervious covering and
will shed the "water to the side ditches.
