Pinkham’s Vegeta-_ ble Compound. . Baltimore (Prepared Oriole—Brilliant hy the ment of United States Agriculture.) Orange Depart- The oriole is one of the most attractive of American birds. Both the “Baltimore” and “Bullock” varieties are described in the United States department of agriculture’s ~Farmers’ Bulletin No. 630, entitled “Some Com-mon Birds Useful to the Farmer.” Bri'liancy of plumage, sweetness of song, and food habits to which no exception can be taken are some of the striking characteristics of the Baltimore oriole. In summer it is found throughout the northern half of the United States east of the Great Plains. Its nest commands hardly less admiration than the beauty of its plumage or the excellence of its song. Hanging from the tip of the outermost bough of a stately elm, it is almost inaccessible to depredators and so strongly fastened as to bid defiance to the elements, -Observation both in the field and laboratory shows that caterpillars constitute the largest item of the fare of the oriole. The other insects consist of beetles, bugs, ants, wasps, grasshoppers and some. spiders. The beetles are principally click beetles, the larvae of which are among the most destructive insects ,.known; and the bugs include plant and bark lice, both very harmful, but so small and obscure as to be passed over unnoticed by most birds. Ants are éaten mostly in spring, grasshoppers in July and August, and wasps and spiders with considerable regularity through- out the season. During the stay of the oriole in the United States vegetable matter amounts to only a Jittle more than 16 per cent of its food, so that the pos- sibility of its doing much damage to crops is very limited. The bird is accused of eating peas to a considerable extent, but remains of such were found in only two cases. One writer says that it damages grapes, but none were found in the stomachs.

It does aot essen tially differ in its habits of eating or in its food from its eastern relative, but it is less beautiful in plumage. The examination of 162 stomachs shows that 79 per cent of its food con. sists of insects, with a few spiders, a lizard, a mollusk shell and eggshells. One of the most interesting articles of food in the oriole’s dietary was the black olive scale, found in 45 stomachs, and amounting to 5 per cent of the food. In several cases these scales formed 80 per cent or miore of the contents, and in one, 30 individuai scales could be counted. They were evidently a standard article of diet, and were eaten regularly in every month of the oriole’s stay except April. The same family of insects other than scales, eaten quite regularjyy, make up a little more than 5 per eent of the food. They were mostly stinkbugs, leaf hoppers and tree hoppers. Plant lice were found in one stomach. Moths, pupae and caterpillars compose the largest item of the oriole’s animal food. The average consumption during its summer stay is a little more than 41 per cent. Of these, perhaps the most interesting were the pupae and larvae of the codling moth.. These were found in 23° stomachs, showing FRENCH EXECUTING A GERMAN SPY a Remarkable diers were photograph firing the fatal of the execution of a German spy taken at the moment that the squad of French sol- volley.

After the eggs have been in the incubator for this period they are distinctly stale and rot very quickly if kept any length of time.

The spring keeping for winter be absolutely good. egg packers in the spring do not candle eggs but hold them three at a time in the hand and elink them to discover any crack and then judge their freshness by their fresh powdery look on the shell. The mixture of infertile incubator eggs with fresh eggs interferes seriously with this clinking and forces the pack- er te candle the eggs. He then deducts this added expense from the price he offers to the producer. Eggs which have once been subjected to the heat of the incubator eannot be stored, even though frozen. The farmer who sells incubator eggs to the dealer, therefore, is very liable to injure his own market for fresh eggs. When dealers find a percentage of low grade incubator or other eggs in their fresh spring egg supply they lower the price for all eggs so that they will be certain that they have covered themselves against losses from this cause. The department’s specialists advise farmers to use any infertile eggs they may take from their incubators for home consumption and to send only fresh eggs to market. ; Lamb’ for us?” Plans for Eradication Foliowed ITALIAN — proach, and keep it up until the enemy eggs, A good bird will annually lay about which can be sold same price as hens’ eggs.

However, no great complaint is made against the bird, and it is probable that as a rule it does not do serious harm. With such a good record as an insect eater it can well be spared a few cherries. - RS takes i : 3 CUTICURA SOAP BATHS FRESE A number of poultry raisers have been in the habit of putting on the market infertile eggs that have been tested in incubators from three days to a week.
