Insect Pests That Might Have Been Kept Out of the United States. That the Uuitetl States stands constantly in danger of having some agricultural pest or dise.ise introduced from a foreign country, just as the San Jose scale was introduced from China about thirty years ago, that will absolutely ruin certain branches of agriculture was one of the significant statements made by Edward A. Sea-to- n of Miuot, X. D., the speaker who represented the students of the college of agriculture at the commencement exercises of the University of Wisconsin. The only way to ward off this peril, said Mr. Seatou, is to provide a strict system of quarantine which will rigidly exclude all diseased plants from the country and a good domestic quarantine system that will confine destructive insects and plant diseases to the localities where they are discovered. "In no other country in the world do insects and plant diseases impose a heavier tax on farm products than in the United States," declared Mr. Seaton. "They taUe fully 20 per cent of our crops and entail a loss to agriculture of $3, 000,000,000 a year. "This situation has been brought about simply by the introduction of diseases and pests from foreign lauds," continued the speaker. "Three-fourth- s are of our pests and of foreign origin, and the number is constantly increasing. The San Jose scaled the codlin moth, the Hessian fly, even the common house fly, are all of foreign origin, and they all could have been, excluded by proper quarantine measures. "The United States is the only important nation of the world which does not provide for such quarantine. Even Turkey will not permit the importation of American nursery stock, .and Germany will admit no American potatoes." dis-eas-e- s SELECT GULLINOS NEW TALES Turpentine as an Antiseptic. One of the most famous surgeons In Xew York writes, apropos of a discussion about the safety of carbolic acid, bichloride of mercury and other violent poisons as antiseptics, that one of the best and certainly the safest things for the layman to use on wounds is turpentine. He is Dr. Morris Stark, assistant attending surgeon at Bellevue hospital and lecturer on surgical dressing to the training school of the French hospital. His words arc as follows: "Ordinary turpentine, if rubbed into a wound which has not bled properly, provided the wound seems to ha've gone through the skin, wiJI not only act as a most powerful germicide, but will start bleeding, a most desirable feature wlien a wound is first received. When free bleeding has begun the turpentine should be washed away with a little alcohol. This is au absolutely safe procedure. The wound is then dressed with any mild antiseptic, such as boric acid or ordinary salt solution, and kept moist with this solution." New York World.

Numbers of schoolboys and schoolgirls were consumed with indignation and horror on presenting themselves at the examination and finding that the principal question set to them was the following: "Explain, with reference to the principle of causation, what is the signification and what is the Interest of the problem of the objective value of knowledge." When It is remembered that the candidates for the French baccalaureate average seventeen years of age it seems very reasonable that they should protest against a question which would puzzle most professors and which would certainly embrace the whole of metaphysics.

In several of the northern states horticulturists have been looking into cac causes ?f the death or greatly weakened condition of many apple trees. This loss has seemed to be especially severe in the case of the Beu Dftvia and Black Gano, the latter a first cousin of the Ben. A report made pnblic within the past three weeks by Professor Beach of the Iowa station gives consideration to the causes and conditions which he believes are responsible for the condition referred to. A part of the trouble seems to be due to n appearance of the Illinois canker, a bacterial disease that attacks and spreads in the cambium layer aud just beneath. Thia trouble has been aggravated by early fall and late spring freezes of the past two or three years; also by two unusually dry suiititiera and lastly by the fact that most orchards in the northern statev i ore to the breaking point last summer, when the trees were in a depleted condition and soil moisture short. An interesting statemeut in Professor Beach's report is that which states that the ona sustained has been far less in orchards that havp 'Heen given careful cultivation during the dry summers of tho past three years, and It is noted that sick trees in such orchards are making much more rapid recovery than theso in orchards where the soil was not cultivated.

Lewis, an official of the Arnold Sand and Gravel company, has toured the world. Captain Lewis in recalling some of his trips said that he met a friend one time, and they talked of the dangers of Icebergs. He remembered that his friend, also .a tourist, said: "One night while returning from Europe I came out on deck. It was so foggy that nothing could be seen. The captain of the ship was walking the deck, and I approached him and said: " 'How fast are we going?' "The master replied. 'Twenty-tw- o miles an hour.' " 'Is not that a violation of the law? I asked. The captain admitted that it was. "Then 1 asked, 'Why do you run so fast through a fog?' The captain replied, 'My official standing orders are.

"I do not think it was maliciously in-vented," he said. "There is a rather well known writer Avho signs herself Mrs. Wilson Woodrow, and she no doubt has been confused with Mrs. Wilson." Mrs. Wilson Woodrow was formerly married to a relative of Governor Wil- -' koii, and it is understood that her views on the matter of women who smoke are different from those held in the household of the Democratic candidate. 1 The divided Republican party is like the boy "blowing against the wind." There will be a lot of bluster, but it will not take votes away from Wilson and Marshall. Winning with Wilson means more than a mere Democratic victory; it means restoring real prosperity. Wilson, is the best equipped man nominated for the presidency since Lincoln: : , -- i.

Professor J. C. Whitten of the Missouri horticultural station has lutel? made an interesting report of sou?" experiments he has conducted ',-ina period of ten years In the matter of whitewashing the trunks of peacb trees for protective purposes. He reports that this treatment enabled the trunks of the trees to reflect the raye of the sun, and as a result tliey remained dormant much longer thaa trees that were not whitewashed. In a period of ten years he reports eight crops of fruit from whitewashed trees and all but two of them full erop. while from trees of the same variety that were not whitewashed live crops were secured, and only three of these were what could be called full crops. He summarizes the results of the whitewash, treatment by saying tbafc in the period of ten years the treated, trees produced just twice as mtiel-frui- t as those not treated. The experience the writer has had with son sap the result of a too early and uneven starting of the ap in the lata winter or early spring leads hlio to believe that this treatment Professor Whitteu recommends for peach trees would give very good results in the case of both pear and apple trees in sections where they are liable to dam; 1 age from sour sap. g ---.- -" , .- tops-ston- e - - days" George, W..

Better results are claimed to have 5S3 been obtained by testing different varieties of .potatoes. A number of varieties have been found to be resistant iu England, but one authority maintains that "all the best varieties oC potatoes i. e., all those most profitable to grow, are excluded as susceptible." lie also states that one variety said to be immune is very susceptible to late blight. None of these varieties are of commercial importance in America. At present crop rotation is the best method of dealing with the disease. Unlike late blight, which is checked some years by climatic conditions, the wart disease when once in the soil grows worse each year on land that is planted to potatoes. Since the fungus has been known to live iu the soil for eight years, potatoes should not be planted in that soil during that period. Fortunately, so far as known the fungus attacks no other crop. A vigorous effort should be made, if found in the United States, to eradicate the trouble. All infected tubers should be boiled or burned, and no more potatoes .should be planted on that field for eight years. Stock should not be allowed to run over infected areas, and no part of any lot containing diseased potatoes should be used U. for seed purpoes. mmamm Attention!

The answer is that Cardui is successful, because it is composed of scientific ingredients, that act curatively on the womanly system. It is a medicine for women, and for women only.
