It is the time of year now that
insects really damage the garden if
care is not taken to prevent or de
stroy them. H. R. Niswonger, exten
sion horticulturist of State College,
says '"Look Out for. Diseases and
Insects. Rotonone dust containing
.75 or one per cent rotonone -will de
stroy many leaf insects such as bean
beetle, cabbage worms, where applied
in a dust form. It will also have an
effect on plant lice and the Harlequin
cabbage bug when the dust comes in
contact with these pests. Poisoned
Bordeaux dust which can be pur
chased from your seed dealer will
control'' the Striped . cucumber bug
when dusted on the plants as soon as
they appear above the ground and
again in about ten days. This dust
is good also for flea beetles feeding
on tomato and pepper plants. Use
Bordeaux mixture for control of the
leaf spot disease of tomato, pepper,
cucumber, and cantaloupes.

"""'mission Agent Fo? The
Sanitary Pigs Profit Owner a Dollar
a Week "
Time is not worth much to a hog,
according to an old saying, but a
difference of a few weeks in its mark
et age is a matter of several dollars
to its owner. One of the advantages
of the swine sanitation system, which
prevents infestation with internal
parasites, is that the pigs thrive bet
ter, make more rapid gains, and ma
ture earlier than pigs' allowed to run
in old hog lots.
The sanitation system, developed
by investigators of thj United Slates
Bureau of Animal - Industry in co
operation with producers in McLean
County, Illinois, calls fir placing
clean sows with their litter on pas
tures that, since being planted, have
not been used for pigs. Here they
seldom pick up eggs of round worms
or other internal parasites especially
harmful to young pigs.
The difference in the tim lequired
to reach market weight, according to
reports received by the bureau, is
often as much as sik weeks aid the
early pigs usually bring the better
prices. As" an example, som.3 early
pigs raised under sanitation were
ready for market early in September
before prices dropped. The top prices
for 200-pound hogs at Chicago drop
ped from $12.90 a hundred on Sep
tember 15 down to $9.60 a hundred
on November 1. That was a decline
of $3.30 a hundred in six . weeks, a
difference of over $6 or a dollar a
week in favor of sanitation pigs.
Another advantage of the plan is
that it reduced the cost of production
