dered your poor brother and whose

known In this town, haviug been articled
to a leading firm of solicitors, Brown

camped to America, taking with him, to-
gether with other pnrloiued properly, u
tine magic lantern which had been lent
him Ly a doctor in Hyde, named Sldebot-
tom, which uamc being on the magic lan-
tern, It was supposed that this was

customer of ours In Manchester, wheie

We occasionally hour a young mnn
Hpenk with a foul mouth and n dirly
tongue. Wo have noticed that tho pres-
ence of older persons does not ppota to I o
any check to the uttoranoen. The pftrwm
who is guilty of thi?, aud at the same
time knows no shame, ip. fast making a
reputation that is auythiug but enviable.
Oue may have a good character and a
bad reputation, or a good reputation and
a bad character, but this doeH nut often
occur. A man's reputation is worth more
than stocks and bonds. Those do not
always command respect, while o good
reputation doef, and brings confidence
and friendship, and when coupled with a
good character it is likely to bring suc-
cess and a competency. A mac is weighed
by the eenUmeuts be expresses and tho
acts he performs. Nothing aids a man
more than clean speech. The young man
who reads this should rernoraber it. It
may be to him wealth and position, if
rightly followed.—J''ckin Times,

THE CODLING MOTH.
Habits of This Destructive Insect aud Qow
ita Ravitget* May )>« Prevented.
Onr Consul at Auckland, New Zea-
land, informs the Department of State
that tbe importation of apples and
pears in any way infected with the
codling moth or in •which said insect is
or .bus been present in any iorm or
stage of development, together with
the packages containing them, has
been by official proclamation prohibited
in that colony, lie further states that
the importation of apples and pears
from California has been very large,
and affirms that the codling moth is
only ionnd in those picked in the early
part of the season. In his communica-
tion on the subject he writes:
A singular feature about the codling
moth is that it deposits eggs in tho
eyes of the young apple, and, when
hatched out, eats into tho fruit aud
eventually destroys it. At first it at-
tackfl tho apple obliquely toward tho
center, thus avoiding the core and
pips—so essential to the growth of tho
fruit. It can bo traced by tho brown-
ish- powder it leaves behind. At a later
fxiriod it enters tho coro and feeds
upon tho seed, tho dainty rnon-pK ot
which are said to bo essential to the
Alter surfeiting HscU
on these aromatic kernels, it cscaprs
through a hole which it makes m tuu
side ot tho apple and takes shelter in
tho scales of the bark of tho tree, or
such other suitable place a.s it can lint!.
The insect completes its transforma-
tion in a few weeks and produces :i
socoad l>rood of moths which lay thuiv
eggs and again stock the apples with
worms. The body ol tho moth H
about three-eighths of
length, and tho wings when expanded
are three-fourths of an inch in width.
The head anil thorax are brown, tho
fcody underneath tho hirulwiuffs ii pale
fci^pwu, with a, silky glos^. The. for*
•wings are gray brown and are deli-
cately b.xrred with dark purplo (iMu-t-
•verso lines, and on tho hind marg.n js
a largo dark brown spot, within which
is another spot almost circular and
bordered with scales of a ghtlcring
Jiery copper color. The apples allectod
by the codling moth lall oil' the tree
early in the season.
An excellent way to destroy thi";o in-
sects i-; to turn either pigs or sheep into
the orchard to eat tho fruit as .->oon as
it fall0 to tho ground.
Sheep arc faiil
to bo better tli.in pigs for this purpo«i>.
They should ho allowed to remain in
tho orchard until autumn, and if this
course is continued for several yearn
the insects will entirely disappear. A
mixture of lime, wash soap, and sheep
manure applied to the trunk of tho
tree will pre\tnt the sheep from touch-
ing the bark. Another method for de-
stroying tho codling moth is to spray
the tree with a weak solution of 1'ario
green; a table-spoonful to the barrel ol
water is said to be sullieient. The best
time to spray the tree i.s after the fruit
sets. The cah x end of the fmit points
upward, aud tho poison will lodge in
tho blossom end of tho apple.
young worms are poisoned as soon as
they begin to eat into the fruit.
bark ot the tree should be thoroughly
cleaned and scraped in tho spring so
that no cocoons will bo loft m the
The greatest difficulty in getting rid
of these insects K to prevent tho lurv.e.
from again ascending the tree after
they have fallen to tiio ground.
G. W. Bissell has made a series of ex-
periments for this purpose, and has at
last invented a trap which, it is said,
i.s the most effective way of destroying
tho pests yet discovered. The trap con-
sists of a circular tin band, having
round tho lower border many small
holes punched from without so as to
leave their projecting edges on the in-
Around the tin band is soldered
a flaring- tin b.isin for holding a lluid
which the codling moth or any other
larvic can not puss.
On the upper ed^o
of the tin band is a wire to which is
si'wed a piece of burlap, and which
may be tied ut the top, close up to the

tui'c Lias made tkc Jlcrino a superior

goat can not be made to approach tho
Merino in that respect while it remains
purely a goat. It is true that this may
not bo so strikingly true of tho Angora
as it is of the common goat. Nor is it
policy while wo are clamoring for an
increased production of wool, to sup-
plv our home needs, to force a compe-
tition which would lessen the consump-
tion of mutton. The wool of the sheep
is of far more importance to mankind
than the hair of the goat.

though we observe iu an exchange the
statement that the prospect is that we
shall very soon produce more, wool
than we can use at home.acoospicuous
cause of anxiety upon ths part of the
thoughtful is to produce as much wool
as we need. Wo have no idea that the
people of this country will ever eat
goat meat. But there is to be an effort
made to try to convince them that they
had better do it, and if there is any re-
sult of note at ail from it, it will be th»
hindering of the full development of
