    Tho Army Worm.
While -we do not think there Is'much
likelihood of a recurrence of the army
worm pest nest year, yet it may be-well
l;i eao we should have another nnlc
tios to know a little more about it.
Ihe New York Agricultural Experi
ment Station has devoted Bulletin No.
304 to an investigation of tne beast
and from It we extract sorre facts
t hlch our readers would do wall to
bear In mind. ' ;
The eggs are very small, globulnr in
foim, and nearly white in o'ior. Xhey
are usually laid in the leaf sheaciis of
grasses and grains, and the eaviy
brood, -which does, the mischief, ovi
posit freely in the cut straw of old
stacks, In hay ricks, In old coin shocks,
and In bits of corn stalk that have been
loft upon the surface of the ground in
, T-'iftures. This will explain a fact that
has been noted by many; that the
worms started In blue grasi pastures
on which cord fodder bad b--ou fed to
cattle. f
The young caterpillars come forth In
ancut ten days from the tir.e the- eggs
are laid. In case the eggs were placed
on fresh grass or grain, the young lar-
v&e feed for a time in 'he sl;e;itii
where the eggs were placed, but tinnl-
ly include the whole blade in the bill of
fare. They are full grown In about
four weeks. At this time a single lar
rae measures about an inch and d half
In length and a quarter of an lnj:h in
diameter. They may be briefly d
scribed as being smooth, naked cater
pillars, moderately dark in color, with
longitudinal stripes running the full
length of the body. The third stagre in
the Insects' life begins when the cater
pillars go . into the ground or under
stones to make the wonderful change
from an active caterpillar to an appar
ently lifeless creature. This stage is
called the pupa stage, or, in the case
of the butterflies and moths, is more
familiarly known as the chrysallc
stage. A single chrysalis measure
about three-fourths of an Inch la
length. :-
Cnpaclty of a Corn Crib. '
It is a safe rule in estimating tho
size of a crib, to allow two cubic feet
to each bushel of corn. By a cubic
bushel is meant 70 pounds of ear corn,
"which Is equivalent to 50 pounds of
shelled corn. The rule is to allow 14
pounds for cob in the fall, and 12
pounds in the spring after the corn has
been dried out perfectly. Two cribs
thirty feet long, six feet wide and ten
feet, high, will by this rule hold 1,800
bushels. Ten feet is too high to throw
corn easily with a scoop shovel, but
there can be two openings for each crib
extending down to within four tor five
feet of the floor, and when the crib is
full to the bottom of these, short boards
can be placed across them, as the crib
is filled, and most of the filling can be
done with case. When the cribs must
be filled to the top, a boy or man can
throw corn back to the ends and fill it,
so as to utilize all the space.
Froacrve a Record, ,-
It would be no bad plan for every
farmer,' and particularly for? every
young farmer, to make a resolution
and keep it to preserve in intelligible
record of all his transactions, the
' times, the seasons, the crops grown,
the dates of planting, with such his
tory of their progress as will throw
light upon the results reached. How
one's time has been employed, what
work was done, when, and In short
every fact relating to the economy of
the farm briefly but intelli
gibly noted. Such a record, even for
n single year, would be of value in
planning -for the next year, enabling
the farmer to better plan his work, be
cause the points at which he succeed
ed, as well as those at which he failed
during the previous year, , would be
full of suggestion and reminder. , "
The Advance In Wheat.
The price of wheat has advanced in
all parts of the world, and is due to
legitimate causes. First came a drouth
in Australia, which cut down the last
crop in the colonies very materially.
Later the advices from Adelaide indi
cate great need of rain, and the next
crop there may be dwarfed on that ac
count, iwo bod years In succession
in Australia are . Improbable, but not
impossible. -The crop in the Argen
tine Republic is short .for, the same
reason, find this is1 also true of India
and Russia. The spectacle of Califor
nia shipping, wheat to Calcntta is one
the world has nevef Ufcfore beheld.
Toy Off and Quit."'
Whenever there Is any misunder
standing between omployer sxd em
ploye on the farm, and one or the other
feels that they have not had their just
deserts, it is time to pay off and quit.
These sores never heal up entirely,
and it doesn't pay to doctor them up,
and have them break out in a new
place worse than ever.
A Time for Liberality.
A little neighborly help and counsel
may go a great ways toward keeping
some people from failure. There are in
every community those who are in a
position to.either distress or to help
their less fortunate neighbors. In most
cases it will do these people no good to
draw the lines too tightly, while such
action may cause the failure of some
who would otherwise have avoided It.
A man may be pretty hard up financial
ly, and yet be all right. If his creditor
knows this and takes advantage of It
in a time of financial unrest the debtor
and the whole business community are
wronged,' usually with no advantage to
the creditor. No one is urged to take
any great risk for the sake of accom
modating a - neighbor, yet all should
realize the good that a little leniency
may do, and the harm that may result
from the opposite course. "
Poultry Feeding Rock.
For the bottom take a board 1 Inch
thick, 6 Inches wide and C feet long,
ends J inch thick, C inches wide and 18
inches long. Nail solid to ends of bot
tom; their ends flush with underside of
bottom. Two strips half an inch thick
and four Inches wide are nailed to the
edges of the bottom, thus making a
trough three inches deep with ends
18 Inches high. Then take strips one
quarter inch thick, 3 Inches wide and
18 inches long, pointed at upper end,
and nail them to the sides of the trough,
leaving a space between pickets of 1
inches for chicks or 2 Inches for fowls.
This gives a complete and durable feed

No American Fat Stock Phew.
There will be no American Fat Stock
Show in Chicago this year. The Illinois
State Board of Agriculture has decided
that the time is too short to allow for
proper arrangements being made. The
stockmen, too, are of the opinion that it
would not be convenlenyor them to at
tend, the time being too short for them
to get their herds In condition. It is
probable that another cause" has oper
ated to some extent. The Springfield
fair involved them in debt about $15,
000, and they had asked to have a guarantee-fund
of $20,000 raised if the fat
stock show was to be held. Only $15,000
of the latter sum had been subscribed.
Dead Furrow n Nuisance.
The dead furrow is always a nui
sance in' preparing land for a crop,
unless It Is upon wet lands, , which
must necessarily be thrown into ridges
a' couple of rods wide to carry off sur
face , water. - The reversing plow Is
how . used and highly recommended
when it . is desirable to have lands
level. We shall Investigate this revers
ible plow and report upon its practical
utility another season. .

There is one official at Scotland Tard
who is but little known to the public,
but who all the same works very hard
and successfully for the public-good
by closely scanning, day in .and' day
out, the advertisements appearing Id
every London newspaper. , : "
This official's primary duty Is to keep
a bright lookout for the very numerous
swindling class which advertises for
managers and so on prepared to invest
money; but, quite beyond this, lie, iu
the most careful manner, notes all ad-,
vertisements as strike, him In any way
as being suspicious, handing them over
to the heads of different departments.
He is himself an expert in all matters
that deal with cipher writing, and part
pf his duty is to translate every cipher
that may appear, handing over a eopy
of the translation to active members
of the staff when anything is revealed
that Justifies, such a course.
The writer, had the privilege the oth
er day of a short chat with this official
a bright young fellow, speaking sev
eral languages, who said: ; , ;
"I am afraid that I am not allowed
to tell you much, but I may say that
no day ever passes without my 'banding
over some advertisement for inquiry.
Our scrutiny in this way has become
very keen recently, for it is an open
secret that certain foreign catch ad
vertisement , swindlers are expected .
here ere long. , ...
"Besides, there have been exposed in
court many cases of swindling recent
ly which have depended solely on al
luring advertisements. In two of them
I gave warning lpng ago, but no prose
cutor would come , forward, Were 1
allowed to do so. I could show vou
hundreds of most mysterious cipher
advertisements in the book over there,
the bulk of these, of course, being be
tweett lovers, but many of them con
taining warnings from one educated
swindler to another,
"Of course, yu know that the thieves
even are all specialists nowadays, and
it Is surprising how soon a bogus ad
vertisement swindler gets to work
again in the same direction when he
is released from Jail. I am advised of
the release of these men, and the char
acteristics of their style are soon ob
servable again in the advertisement
columns. . ; ; " :
"We, as a rule,' warri them at onci;
that we recognize the new plant, and in
this way hundreds of warnings are
sent out yearly and do an amount oi
good that the public knows nothing of.
