Lime-Sulphur Spray
We are indebted to Mi. A.
Smith of Kemp's I' i\, Audi' s,
for the accompanying cutting
from the "Family Herald and
Weekly Star of "Montreal Caaa
da. He sends it in tlie i
thai it maj prove beneficial to
fruit growers.
Last year the orcfiardists wl o
had a large percentage of their
fruit grade No. i, were those
who sprayed and sprayed thor-
oughly. The season for effective
spraying is here and everything
should be got in readiness.
One of the most effective
sprays is lime sulphur since it
"jh be used satisfactorily for a
eflter variety of insects and
fungus diseases than any other
spray. The following are some
of the pests which can be con-
trolled by it: Ked spider, aphids,
pear psylla, leaf blister, mite,
oyster Shell scale, San Jose scale,
pple scab, currant leaf spot,
powdery mildew of the goose-
berry, black-rot canker, pear
scab leaf blight, peach leaf curl,
brown rot or plum and cherries,
peacli scab, and brown rot of
peach.
This spray may be purchased
in the concentrated form or it
may be made at home. The
home made concentrated can
easily be made and the rules for
diluting it quickly learned, and,
as it is much cheaper, fruit
growers should learn to make
their own It giVee just as satis
factory results, but it is not
quite so strung as the factory
made. The point regarding
lime-sul| hur which appeals t"
the fruit grower is that it may
be made in the concentrated
form during March, or when
\vorltaa>>''ick, and stored away;
tkenatf thai is nei rosary when
the spraj ing season comes is to
dilu e it to (lie and apply 1 In lime sulphur
may be kept foi in- (ltllS without
deteriorating in the least.
A large iron kittle may be
-
lised foi making small lots, or
i larger quantities are required
i lank can be fitted up at small
cost. In the case of large or
chards an outfit which boils by
Steam is preferable.
PREPARING THE MIXTURE.
In order to make the concen
trate in 40 gallon lots, the foi
lowing are needed: Sulphurof
a good grade, 100 lbs.; fresh
stone lime, 50 lbs.; and water,
40 to 50 gallons. Put enough
water in the boiling outfit to
make a moderately thick paste
with the sulphur. Then light
the fire, and, while the water is
heating up, throw in the sul
phur and stir well to make a
paste and break any lumps
there may be. Next add the re
niainder of the watei, and,
when it is read) to boil, add the
lime. When this has begun to
slake, stir well to prevent cak-
ing on the bottom, and to keep
the lime and sulphur in suspen-
sion. The stirring should be
frequent for the first half hour,
after which it need only be done
occasionally. Boiling should
be continued for an hour and
water added in small quantities
from time to time to keep the
total always up to at least 40
gallons Then strain into bar-
1 'Is through a screen of 30 mesh
es.to the inch. Do not leave the
barrels exposed to the air, but
either covet th m or pour a thin
layer of oil nn the concentrate
When cold and the sediment
has settled each lot should be
tested with the hydrometer to
get the strength. The cost of
making this concentrate, in-
cludig the materials and labors
involved and reckoning on a
basis of spraying efficiency, is
little more than half that < I'ttie
commercial concentrate.
USE OF HYDROMETER.
The cow entrateshould never
be diluted without hist deter
mining its strength by the use
of a hydrometer This is nn re
|j a float which sinks higher or
lower art 1 rding lo th< strength
of the solution, in which it in
placed. For convienience and
accuracy in reading a glass cy
Itndei should be used in making
determinations, as then the h
j^uies and the surface of the li
quid may be brought on a level
with the eye. Such a cylinder
can usually be obtained with
the hydrometer, and both will
cost in the neighborhood of a
dollar.
In making a determination
fill the glass cylinder to within
an inch of the top with theCon
centrate, which must be cold
and free from sediment. The
hydrometer is then placed in-it,
and the reading taken at the
surface when the instrument is
steady and floating free from
the sides. After using wasli the
hydrometer Carefully. Theie
are two scales on the hydrome
ter, but always use the specific
gravity readings.
In determining the amount
of water to arid to the concen
trate to make it ready for use,
proceed as follows: Following
the above instructions, take the
reading: Suppose this is 1,270,
and we require for spraying a
strength of 1,030; divide the
last three figures of the reading
just made (270) by the last din e
of the strength required (30),
ainl the result will give the di
lution, in this case 9, 'which
means that we must mix one
gallon of the concentrate with
eight of water. Similarly, if
from a concentrate of the same
strength (1,370), it was desil
to make a spray, testing 1 ,(f
the dilution would be 6 27J
45. or one gallon of theconc|
trate with .|4 of water.

Washington:- In view of
the disturbed conditions on
the Mexican border and to
insure complete protection
to Antericai s tlie President
has called out substantially
all state Militia and will send
to the border wherever and
fully as General Funtton may
determine. An effort will be
made to releive from duty
those now serving on the
border.
It is not intended that
more troops be sent into
Mexico except in pursuit of
bandits who may commit
outrages on American soil.
June 19th 1916.
London, 17:The Russian
drive in Volhvnia, Galicia and
Bukowina shows little slacken
ing in power although ilir pro
tress of General hrussiloiTt; ai
mips apparently is much less
rapid than in the earl) stages of
the campaign.
From the Volhvnian triangle
fortresses the Russians have
thrust sharply to the West and
Southwest. In the former di-
rection they are battering on
theAustrian defensive line along
the Styr and the Stokbod not
more than 30 miles from Kevel
the important railwaj junction
essential to close connection
between the Southern 1 eutonic
armies and those to ilie NortlJl
In the latter direction LheyJ
have scored new progress and
are close to the (ialician border
pushing down therailwa) fi< ni
Dubno.
The current Russian official
statement reports the OCCUUa
lion of Radzilowo less than ien
miles from Brodj aCsosi tht
frontier .line and B| pr< atn ately
sixty miles Northeast nf l.trn

North of Pn zwolka.
On the West front the fight
ing at Verdun has again been
left to the artillery for the most
part. The Germans are violent
ly shelling French positions in
the Deadman Hill section and
incidentally have made hand
grenade attacks in this vicinity
which Paris declares were fur
tile.
Athens, 17:The continues^*
strictness ot the Entente Allies
blockade against Greek ports is
engendering a growing feeling
of uneasiness 111 government
circles, rumours are rife that
ill* Entente ultimatum which is
expected to be delivered Mon
day may present as an alterna
live to complicance with its de
mands the rupture of diploma
tic relations between the Enten
te Allies and Greece. It is not
thought that the Greek Cabinet
can long stand the pressure.
The lack of foodstuffs on the
outer islands of Greece and in
the not-readily accessible parts
of the kingdom is already caus
ing disturbances although the
government insists that the
available wheat supply at Pirae
us is sufficient for more than a
month.
1 he great drive of the Russian
armies against the Austrians
apparently is continuing with
tindiininished successes. From
the I'ripet Marshes Southward
to Caernowita General Brussi
loffs forces are throwing back
counter attacks and are advaflj


iug steadily, according to nffi
cial Petrograd statements.
In 13 days the Russians
