"LEARNING THE ROPES." A worthy farmer and his wife were returning from thewiarket town laden with .purchases of every kind, and, .travelling 'by a train which had only recently .been iput on, were uncertain whether it stopped at the little village station near their home, so they asked a young student who was in (jlie same carriage.

So as the station .platform was reached, the.farmer began throwing liis parcels out, and after the whole oi tliem were got rid of from end to end of the door, he tumbled out himselr, falling head-ovcr-heels into a .porter's arms, and knocking that functionary down. Wis wife followed, and can I noned into the stationmaster, damag ing that official's anatomy consider ably ibefore falling.

Concerning the matter an Ame rican bee-keeper writes: "This Is -nother case In which ignor ance is loud with complaint, and whero a little more knowledge would havo made a very different showing. Liko the ease of the spread of pear-blight, there is some truth; but the conclusions arc utterly misleading and wrong. It is true that all scale insects are spread while very young, and while they are crawling about on leaf and twig before settling down to their real business, which consists of sucking and growing. It is also -true that mast of this spread ing is done by Insects and birds. Tho bird or insect alights on the tree where the young scale insects are crawling about in search of the right place to lo cate, and these later crawl upon the feet of the bird or roving-insect.
