The treatment recommended is as follows:

“When sooty mould followed the attacks of the orange mealy wing, spraying with resin wash or fumigation with hydrocyanic acid gas was found to be very effective. When resin wash is used, the best time for treament is in winter."

" The following is the formula recommended for resin wash :- Resin wash, 20 lb.; caustic soda (98 per cent.), 41 lb.; fish-oil (crude), 3 pints ; water to make 15 gallons. Place the resin, caustic soda, and fish-oil in a large kettle. Pour over them 13 gallons of water and boil till the resin is thoroughly dissolved, which requires from three to ten minutes after the materials begin to boil. While hot, add enough water to make just 15 gallons. This may be most readily accomplished by taking a tight keg or other tall receptacle and measuring into it 15 gallons of water. Then plainly and permanently mark the height to which the 15 gallons reach. After boiling the hot solution may be poured directly into this measuring keg, and sufficient water added to bring it up to the 15-gallon mark. This serves as a stock preparation.

“When the stock preparation cools, a fine yellowish precipitate forms and settles at the bottom of the vessel. The preparation must therefore be thoroughly stirred each time before measuring out to dilute, so as to uniformly mix this precipitate with the clear, dark, amber-brown liquid, which forms by far the larger part of the stock preparation. An instrument like a chum-dasher, without perforations, greatly facilitates rapid and thorough mixing. When desired for use, take one part of the stock preparation to nine parts of water. If the wash be desired for immediate use, the materials after boiling and while still hot, may be poured directly into the spray tank, and diluted with cold water up to 150 gallons. This requires the addition of about 135 gallons of water.

“If a fuid stock solution is preferred, the wash may be prepared as follows:-Place the same proportions of resin, caustic soda, and fish-oil in the kettle, and pour over them from 15 to 17 gallons of water. Boil until the resin is thoroughly dissolved, and then dilute with cold water while the solution is still very hot, to exactly 21 gallons. To get this exact amount, the barrel may be prepared and marked in the manner already described. This will form a clear, dark, amber-brown solution, which at ordinary Florida temperatures will remain perfectly fluid. For use, dilute the whole formula to 150 gallons; or use in the proportion of one part of the stock solution to six parts of water."

It must be carefully noted that the American gallon differs from the English gallon proportion.

"When sooty mould follows attacks of the war scale, mealy bug, or orange aphis, thorough sprayings with the resin wash or standard kerosene emulsion will be found effective. The time when the treatment should be made is not important in these cases; but if the resin wash is used, a dry season should be selected, when the work will not be rendered uncertain by the liability of rainfall."

General Notice.

This number of the Agricultural Gazette, containing seasonable notes for the month of December, will conclude the series for the year 1896.
