TO DESTROY THE CUT-WORM.  o |J|   ,   ,  Remedies Suggested for the Plagues Infecting the Gardens.  (Extract���������>   froni   the   ltepoit   of  Dr. J-'letcliur,'  Dominion Eiiiomologist.  In view of the disastrous invasion of  cut-worms, reports of which are pouring in to the "Department of Agriculture, Mr. .1. 1?. Anderson, Ihe Deputy  Ministe: lias asked the Colonist to publish the following extracts, taken fiom  the ISOfj report of Dr. James Fletcher,  Dominion Entomologist:���������       ,   '  Cut-worms aro the ' caterpillars of  dull coloured, active mollis, belonging  lo the noctuidae or owlet moths-, of  which there ,-ire upwards of -100 kinds  in North America. The caterpillars oi  these different kinds vary somewhat  in their habits.' but,'1 on the whole they  are very s'iniila-, being smooth, almost  naked,' gray looking caterpillars of  some dull shade of colour similar to the  ground 'm.whichrlhey hide-during the  days The head is smooth and shining,  as well as'a small horny plate and the  segment noxt,lo the head.' Their habits are almost always nocturnal; dying  hid by day just beneath the surface of  ,the soil, lhey coineout. at night lo feed.  When tlu\y occur in laige numbers  lhey change their habits somewhat,  and feed by day as' well, owing to the  reduced food supply 'consequent"upon  their ravages. The eggs from which  cut-worms hatch are laid by some  s-pecies iu the autumn, and by others  in the spi ing or summer,'anil as a consequence cut-worms of all sizes can be  f.Hind in lhe spring : for these insect',  according to ,lhe species, may pass lhe  whiter in tlie,state of eithei a perfect  moth, a chrysalis, a partially grown  caterpillar, or an egg. ��������� &  Largo numbers may be destroyed by  p'acing between lhe rows of an infested crop, or iit a .short, distance a pari on  in felted land, bundles of any succulent  weed or other vegetat ion" which have  been previously' poisoned by dippirg  then) into a ttrong mixture of Pan's  green (two ounces to a pailful of water).

'  It was in these circumstances that  riper Farquharsou robbed the dead on  Magersfontein. ". .- -   -  His field of operation was "limited,  but he had many within- it limited  though it might be.  Duncan pillaged from nn ofliccr a silver flask which.its owner would never  more require. , ,  With other melancholy loot Duncan  crawled slowly back to the ,laird, and,  feeling for his face, he poured whisky'  a'ud water between his lips.

"  Duncan, whose head was throbbing  with the effort in playing the reel,  crawled down beside his laird.  "Aye; I think it will be snow afore  morn In," he said.  Thou Piper Farquharsou played  marches and strathspeys, and in the  cold and darkness death came to many  of his ai'dienee. But ns they fell  asleep and their thirst was sated and  .their pain eased, their lullaby was, to  them, the sweetest they had heard  since childhood. .  Duncan coHld play no more.
