THE ADVOCATE AND NEWS. NOVEMBER 21, Farm Department Sy W. A. PEFFEB. About Insecticides and ThoLr Uses. Clarence M. Weed, la American Culti vator, submits the following: It la well known that there are two principal ways in which insects take their food. Some Insects bite and chew the parts of the plant upon which they feed, while others are provided with a pointed, tube-like beak, which they in sert into the tissues of the plant and suck out the sap. On account of this difference in feeding habits those in sects which bite may be destroyed by coating their food with poisons, while the others must be treated with some substance that kills by simply coming in contact with their bodies. The poisons most commonly used against biting insects are certain chem ical compounds, composed in part of arsenic. Paris green Is the most im portant of these. It Is a chemical com bination of arsenic and copper, contain ing when pure about 55 per cent, of arsenic. When placed in water the fine partic...

THE ADVOCATEnAND NEWS. 1897. Bleep and Chickens. Sheep are especially sensitive to the kind of soil from whlcn they are to feed. Some are better adapted to up lands or hills, and others to lower grounds and richer pastures. Some are better adapted to produce good mutton, others to produce finer and larger fleeces of higher priced wool. The farmer's land and his markets for mutton and wool and the special attention he can give his flock, should determine for him the kind of sheep he should select for the beginning of a new flock. Almost any kind that can live on his farm and under his care, may pay expenses; but only the best breeds and those best adapted to his circumstances will afford the most profit, and these are the kinds he should pur chase for a starter. Sheep and chickens when once estab lished on a farm, hold their place for a long time. The more necessity, there fore, for making good selections In the beginning.

Voluminous evidence was introduced to show that the defendant had shot plain tiff's dog In malice and quite as much to prove that the dog was vicious and had attacked the defendant. Then the lawyers made (their addresses to the court, going over the evidence with great thoroughness. All this time Senator Vest sat with his 'big round head burled without saying a word.

Boston Advertiser: Recent decisions of the United States Supreme court have tended to curtail quite largely the power which the Interstate Commerce Commis Blon has attempted to arrogate to Itself during recent years. These decisions are making It clear that the functions of the Interstate Commerce Commission Is i hlefly executive, and does not command that Judicial quality which the commis sion Itself baa attributed to its office.

THE ADVOCATE AND NEWS. IS STATE COAL STOLEN? Penitentiary Officials State the Pacts in the Case. The criticism of the penitentiary man agement on the part of dally papers etlll continues. The latest Is a story that the State Is mining coal under private lands and paying an enormous royalty on the product while private companies are mining under State lands without pay ment of any royalty. The penitentiary authorities say that when they took charge about half the mining operations were being conducted under State lands and about half under private land3. This policy has been continued because it U necessary to -have a certain amount of room in which to work a given number of men and that the mine has been so opened and worked that It is net possible to confine operations to State lands alone but that as speedily as possible veins under State rands are being opened so that gradually the men are drifting In that direction without interfering with the work of getting out the average pro...
