As millions of dollars nre lost nn
("mil through Insect Injurious to
corn, n better knowledge of tho sub
ject seems almost Imperative. It
would pay to devote careful study to
the habits of corn Insects, nnd to those
who wish to do so It Is suggested
that they write to tho State Agricul
tural College of Illinois at Urbana for
n free copy of Bulletin No. 05, which
contains n full description of nil Uie
InsecU In question and many valuable
In discussing; the effects of Insects
nnd the general remedies that msy be
applied, the bulletin says;
"With few exceptions, the effect of
Injury to corn by Insects whore they
do. not amount to n Total distinction
of tho plant mny be compared to the
effect of simple starvation. Anything
which lessens the store of food laid
up In the corn kernel for use In germi
nation and early growth, or damages
seriously the roots or the leaves, or
draws nwny the snp before it has
served Its purtMMe In the plant, prac
tically amounts to the diminution of
the available food supply. An Im
IKivcrlshed soil, very dry weather, the
capping of cells and vessels of the
plant by sucking Insects, or destruc
tion of nny considerable part of Its
root hnve consequences which may
he clnssed as starvation effects.
"In view of these facts. It follows
that nny management which helps to
mnlntnln and strengthen the plant by
furnishing It better or more abundant
food will lessen or perhaps wholly
prevent losses from Insect Injury,
which must otherwise be serious or
complete. A strong, rich soil, well
cultivated, wntereil ond drained, may
grow a good crop notwithstanding an
amount of Infestation by chinch bugs,
root lice, root worms and white grubs
which would be fatal on poor land.
"Tho good corn farmer may thus es
cape with a profitable yield under In

established fact that many Insect

quickly growing plant as on one In
".More special measures are a proper
rotation of crops, such thnt corn will
not be exposed to Insects which hnre
bred on the same ground the preced
ing year, cither In other crops or in
the corn Itself; timely plowing to
forestall the breeding of Insects by
destroying them or their food; timely
planting with reference to the period
of the greatest abundance or greatest
nctlvlty of certain species; and the use
of barriers ngnlnst the movement of
certain destructive speclos Into the
corn from flelds adjacent, combined
with Insecticide measures ngnlnst
hordes of destructive Insects, which
If left to themselves will work great

else that a farmer buys. Unquestion
ably the cheapest way of buying fer
tilizer is to buy the several materials
and do the mixing on the barn floor,
but assuming this Is not done, then
one should make It a point to see that
they buy the fertilizer which will give
them the greatest amount of the plant
food they want In the smallest bulk,
which means, of course, at the lowest
price. For example, If a ton of the
fertilizer, according to the analysis,
contains 0 per cent of potash (or any
other plant food may be figured on tho
same basis), this means 120 pound of
potash to the ton.
If another fertilizer contain 12 per
cent, or 2(0 pounds to the ton, the lat
ter Is cheaper than the first by exact
ly the number of cents It costs less
than double the first. Reducing It to
pounds, If one costs & cent a pound
and the other 0, the last U the cheap
est. If you get It at tho rate a pound
for the bulk. If you want potash, and
pay 20 for a ton of fertilizer contain
ing 120 pounds of potash, It Is cheaper
to pay (33 for a ton of fertilizer con
taining 210 pounds of potash.
The same plan of figuring works
through all the fertilizer bought, so
that It Is easy to see that a fertilizer
cheap In price Is not always cheap
when results are figured out. The mere
matter of bulk has nothing to do with
the case. It might as well bo sawdust
If It does not contain the elements
you want and at fair prices.

The yields of thirty-three of the
principal Germnn, Hugllsh nnd French
varieties of fodder beets are reported
by n German experimenter, and the
experiments briefly described. Tho
cylindrical shaped varieties yielded tho
largest quantities of beets, the small
est quantities of leaves, and stood
lowest in sugar content, while the va
rieties approximating the shape of tho
sugar beet gave the lowest yield of
beets, a very high yield of leaves, nnd
ranked first In sugar content Tho
tankard varieties stood close to tho
cyllndrlcnl-ahaped sort In yield and
composition, and the globe varieties
produced very large yield of leaves
and a medium quantity of beets, with
n sugar content ranging from satisfac
tory to high. The color of the beet
