The effect of spraying apple trees with
London purple to prevent ravages of tho
co■ iling moth or apple worm is well il
lustrated by the experience «>f Lupton, of
\ irginia, as -ta'ed in a recent issue of
Insect Life. The work of spraying was
undertaken in _Mi Lupton's orchard, but
was discontinued when h'ss than one
third of the trees had been spraved.
I'rom these trees 1.000 barrels of apples
nearly free from worms were gathered,
while from tin* remaining two-thirds of
the orchard only M;> barrels of sound
fruit were obtained, quite one-fifth of the
apphs from th«• on-prayed trees being
wormy and unfit for use. Mr. Lupton
estimates that his returns from the or
chavd would have been increased $2,500
had ali the trees been sprayed.

Senator Washburn having introduced
a bill fixing al! transactions in futures
he has been called ti| on to defend his po
sition In response to some inquiries
from the Chamb' r of Commerce of Miu
.Teapots, he said :
Of course the Hoard of Trade folks up
there occupy the same position as the
Chicago board, they claiming to believe
that the bill means the utter demolition
of all titiding it; futures, but they will
!ind their mistake when the
bill formally becomes a law and goes into
dlccf. ! was especially surprised at the
statement made then by President law
yer, of tlie Sawyer Elevator Company,
when he said that not over 10 [ rr cent of
the sales made on the boards of tra'ie in
the country were of the gambling char
acter. I had not the data with me. but
I find in looking the matter up that a
quite different state of affairs exists. No
board fumjshes any data to make a c.»m
paiison from except the New York board,
which is s;u;i i compared with the Chica
:;* .board, but even then the figures are
startling. Here is a very interesting ta
ble thai 1 came across the other day. It
shows that fluting ten days of the sum
mer of 1800 the refd aud bogus sales of
wheat were as follows:

The facts are that duiing the la\s
named, for ,-v.ii bush' 1 of wheat sold,
New Vi rk maiket wreckers sold :>?2
bushel- of fiat grain, and that it would
require but thirty-six days for them to
sell option- equalling in amount an aver
ago wheat crop.
An expert, writing on the subject, «
says: *Tt is not unusual for as much fiat
to be sold i:i a day a- there is of
actual graiu recti veil in a year. For in
stance on the 14th of Ami', Nov
York spci ul itor- sVt.i 14.000,000 bushels
of-fiat wheat, probd.lv more than twice
as much as reached 'ha: city during the
year. While the offerings"' in i single
day. at,either ( hicayo or New York, are
said to often exceed 1100.00U.000 bushels,
such offeiiugs h ivi- g the intended effect
of dept- -sing p:icc-
M'hat would wheat he..- bceu
worth had it not b'en foi the board of
Well. 1 think that ever'y bushel would
be.worth '2«» icnts mote to day.
Add two m >rc States to the National
faruitia Alliance tnd liidustiial Union's
coluuiD. At their icceut state meetings
the open Alliance of the States of Min
nesota and Nebraska voted unanimously
to consolidate with the National Earm
eis' Alliance and Industrial Union. Such
action demonstrates the wisdom and
power of conservative methods, and is
cuucliisivt proof that the great Noithv. est
is not afraid of the so-called "Southern
invasion." The order in these two States
have carefully considered the matter
and. in. spite of political trickery and
falsehood, hive joined their fortunes
with the National Farmers' Alliance and
Industrial Union. This will do gnat
good, since it btings with it all the pow
er and prestige that waits upon a united
eiiort under one central management."
Doubtless during the year all reform :«lg i

THE FLIGHT OF THE JONES BROS.
Supposed to Have Made $120,000 Dy
Selling Poor Cotton as
MEMPHIS, TE.N.N.— The publication in
the morning newspapers of the disap
penranee of all the members of the firm
of Jones Rrothers & Co., as well as the
bookkeeper, loosened many tongues. It
is evident now that it was premeditated
ami that they have been preparing foi' it
for some time. They have been buying
low grade cotton, some of it known as
"log tail," and entirely unlit for the
spinners'export trade. *•
It was shipped to New Orleans. A
few weeks ago the Jones Brothers and
Mr Fleet, special partner, went to New
Orleans, chartered two. vessels, the Straits
of Gibraltar and another, and loaded
them with 10.000 bales of cotton, billed
as good mid 1 ing. If low middling htfd
been sent they would have cleared |7 a
bale on the lot, but they bought worse
than low middling in marly- cases, and
the whole profit may foot up ti>^l^o,o(>o.
It was rumored so strongly before the
flight that they li rd done this that local
credisors were warned to look out. The
bank to which they .owed de
inaadc I additional security for their
overeheck, and they mortgaged their
resilience property und their interest in
the Newport cotton compress,. Their
ovt-rehji lis were given for cotton pur
chases, lmt as they drew on- the con"
s gnees after shipping, they got the

and then spend days and nights trying to
