of Southern Itcpuhlicaiia that the

treatment shown the president in

increased, and while there is uo

are acme erroneous notions abroad
in regard to this subject, and as

gissl opportunity to olxerve the

seem au opHrtune time for a few
words ou the subject.
The Moon An Erroneous Notion.,
List week a mail earnestly ar
gued with me that the eggs of in
sects always hutched at the lime of
a new moon; said he didn't Micve
it at first, but that observation had
convinced him. That night it was
full moon, and the very next morn
ing I found eggs ou an elm leaf
ahirh were then hatching some
of the larvae were entirely out,
some were just part way out of the
shells while others were still un-
hatched. Three days later I ob
served larvae of potato Wtles
which had evidently only hatched
a day or two liefore. So far as
knowu the moon is without clt'ect
on insects or their eggs. It may la
titat on bright moonlight nights
some sMi-ics of insects might tly
which normally remain quiet, or it
might induce some insects which
normally tly at night to keep quiet,
but it is not knowu that the moon
exerts any direct inlliience on the
life-history of innccts.
Persons often say to me that the
cold winter weather will kill out
certain tests, but I have seldom
known this to result. The truth is,
that mere cold has very little cllect
ou most insects. A cut worm may
lie frozen solid, kept all winter, and
yet when thawed out in spring will
be iu good health and with normal
and destructive aps-tite. Insects
which are natives of warmer coun
tries -as the harlequin cablmgebiig
may lie much reduced by cold
winters as they require some lime
to become acclimated. We do not
remember to have seen as many
harlequin bugs this year us last,
and this may lie in part due to the
cold winter, but there are never
theless a gisid many of them
around, and they will probably
make their presence knowu More
the summer is over. Itut insects
which are native of this or cooler
countries, like rut-worms, potato
IsTtles, Btrawlicrry weevils, grass
hoppers and others are not much
allected by the cold of our winters.
t)ii the other hand, alternate lreez
iug ami thawing is much more de
structive to insects, just as it is to
plants, hence mild winters may he,
exiected to do more to kill insect
pcsls than cold ones.
Warm and Cool Seasons.
If the spring season Is' cool, cut
worms are more destructive. This
may Is for two reasons: First, lo
calise the cold increases the amount
of food necessary to maintain life,
and second, U-cause the cold may
retard their growth so that their
in lines are prolonged over a great
er period. Cool springs are also
favorable for plant lice, such as
rose lice, cotton lice, green louse of
the apple, and others, while these
usually quickly disappear when a
siell of hot, dry weather comes on
Damp and Dry Seasons.
Insects are frequently attacked
with various fungous diseases
which kill them iu great numbers.
Most of these insect diseases are
most virulent in damp seasons.
Hence some insects are so ini.ch af
fected during damn seasons that
they do not become numerous.
The chinch bug is a good example
of this. It is destructive in Pied
mont Carolina in hot, dry seasons,
but is seldom heard from in damp
seasons. This is no uount largely
due to the fact that in such seasons
the fungous diseases chock them
Prolmbly the liest combination of

Inwn this insect would lie hot,
cloudy, wet weather during June
and July. Such a season would be
disastrous to fruit, however, as it
would favor the development of the
nits on the fruits as well as the dis
ases on the chinch bugs.

Japs Eschew Light Literature.
The Japs are serious-minded peo
ple, as their literary habits show.
They take life seriously ami devote
their time to the reading of what
would lie called iu America solid
1 looks. The recent reisirt of the
librarian of the inierial library at
Tokio hIiows that there is little de
maud for light literature iu that
capital, for fiction of any sort, con
trary to the experience of most of
the iMipulur libraries in England,
France aud America. The Japa
nese mind runs to science, mathe
matics, medicine, language and to
what may lie termed the graver
forms of literature. More than 40
ier cent, of the works taken out of
the imperial library are of this
character. The Japanese are very
fond of history, in the making of
which they areexteusively engaged
at the present in the easteru war.
Kngiiieering, military and naval
science receive much attention.
The interest in these subjects has
Is-en greatly stimulated by the war.
Not Wearing Out, merely Rusting.
More than half the folks who
think that they are wearing out are
just rusting out. Kight with a feel
ing of weakness comes a spirit ol
resiguatiou. You kuow what this
is a yielding to conditions a
tumbling down. The chances for
a persou iu this world are fighting
chances. Most that is won is
achieved by activity and energy.
The only time to lie resigned is
when you have to lie. You do not
have to be so long as there is a
lighting chance. When you feel
ike Mng resigned it is time to
summon resolution; that will serve
you ten times as well and keep
your spirits from giving out.
