Two Practical and Intxpantiv Plana
to Prevent Ravages of Borers.
The most ditllcult matter about
growing stjuashca U to protect the
vines from the various Insects that
prey upon them. This I esiccInUy
true In the home garden mill small
plots ueur building or near where
squashes or other vine crop were
growu the previous year. because the
Insects hilK-miite In the buildings nnd
In the ground near the vine they fed
upon for the winter. For the airletl
cucumber beetle there In no mlsnn or
repellent that will prove effective and
satisfactory nt oil time. The liox
plant protector showu In the cut la VZ
by 12 Inches and nix Inches high, cover-
ed with wire screen, which Is set over
the hill when the seeds are planted
nud left on until the plants get too
large. Protector of this type may be
made of old pine boxes or other odds
and ends, nud they need not cost over
5 cents u piece, even if the lumber must
be purchased. Another style, In the

seceiid tut, Is made eutlrcly of wire
screen. The one shown was uindu by
cuttlns n circular piece of wire screen
twenty-four Inches In diameter nnd
then folding over a section, nmnuutlng
to one-fourth to one-third of the cir
cumference, and fastening with short
ple.es of small wire pushed through
the meshes nnd the ends twisted t
gether. It gives a good Idea us to
bow these protectors nre made. At re
tail priceti the protectors inado this
way will cost 8 cents each, but they
have this ndvautage over the box
style the light aud nlr have full ac
cess to the plants, as a glance at the
ink buttle In "the wire plant protector
will prove, the bottle being placed In
the tvutcr of the protector. These
pictures were takeu early In April, nnd
t!io Ink bottle hud to do duty In place
of the plants. Another advantage of
this style Is that the protectors may
be nested together aud stored easily
PAYS TO RAISE WEEDS.
Thoso "Planta Out of Place" Have) a
Fixed Market Value.
Money In weeds? To te sure. The
national department of ngrlculturo tins
been for many years telling tho fann
ers of ttie large money vnlue going to
waste each year l:t this country In the
shax of x'rnliitus weeds nud hits
been Issuing bulletins with directions
for collecting, curing nud selling the
weeds. A tpiarter of a century ngo
lr. George B. I.orlng. the commission
er of agriculture, called atteutlon to
the fact that In Ueruiany many of the
commonest nnd most jiernlclous weeds
that the American farmer has to con
tend with were successfully aud prof
itably cultivated, lturdock. dandelion,
witch pram, foxglove, mullein, hore
hound, Jltr.sou. mustard nnd water
hemlock are among our commonest
weeds and grow In grcnt profusion al
most everywhere In the 1'nlted Slates.
Ordinarily they are regarded merely
us troublesome weeds. The trouble, of
course. Is In the lazy habit of attempt
ing to grow weeds nud cultlvatl crops
on the same laud lit tne same time.
So It often happens that the witch
grass between the potato rows Is more
valuable than the tubers In tho hills.
When you raise weed you must make
a business of it. I-iuid that will raise
nothing else will raise weeds. The
jlmson grows In rank profusion nlsiut
the feed lot. the front yard Is yellow
with dandelion Bowers, nud the flow
ers of the mullein bedeck the pastures.

fence corners, nnd the waste lot pro

where the bush siUt:shes are about

vines should le pulled nnd destroyed

well to remember that the soil should
