It is at the western end of the lake that the borer also threatens a descent upon this country from Canada by crossing the Detroit river.

Farmers will be urged tol cut their cornstalks as close to thai ground as possible, as the Insect makes Its winter home in the stalk. For tils' reason, too, fall plowing Is recomi' mended. The Ohio authorities. It la said, are fully alive to the need for checking the spread of the pest, and are with the department! and conducting work of their own to--i ward this end. Floating Cornstalks a Source of Danger This Is the first Instance known Ip which the corn borer was carrledj any great distance by wind. It has, been known, though, to travel by watery in floating cornstalks, and in this man- ner has made its way to islands. This; Is one ominous feature of the presence of the borer in Ohio, It is" said. Aj present the infestations are In a strip that drains Into Lake Erie, and floaty ing stalks are not likely to do much harm. However, the divide where the drainage of the Ohio river begins is only a few miles south of tha infested area. Once over this watershed. It is said, there is no telling where the pest may be carried. It is thought nlJ toeether possible that Infested stalks in that event might be carried even to places far down the Mississippi river. The European corn borer has been known In this country only a few years. It is well known in northern Europe, where it does great damage to corn, especially in Austria. It Is supposed to have come to this country and to Canada in importations of broom corn from Europe, and at present several- large areas In New England and New York are under Federal quarantine to prevent Its further spread. Its presence in Ohio is one of the most important developments since It entered this country. SUGGESTIONS TO AID FARM TIMBER OWNERS Product Calls for Good Business Methods.
