The ' powder gun' has come into general use and is rapidly replacing the spray pump for poisoning the hornworm and budworm. The grow- ers who still employ the spray pump use one pound of Paris green and an equal quantity of quicklime to 100 gallons of water, this being sufficiently strong to kill the hornworms without injuring the leaves. If a stronger solution is used there is danger of burning the leaves, so that patches of green will appear after curing. A mixture of one pound of Paris green to thirty pounds of lime or land-plaster (gypsum) is recommended for use in the powder gun. Zimmer Spanish and Little Dutch tobaccos. The preparation and care of the seed-bed for Zimmer Spanish and Little Dutch varieties, and the preparation of the soil, methods of transplanting and cultivating, harvesting, curing and ferment- ing are essentially the same as for Connecticut Havana. The plants should be set in rows three feet apart and the seedlings set fifteen to twenty inches apart in the rows. The plants should be topped so as to leave about sixteen leaves for each plant. The average yield of the Zimmer Spanish variety is about 600 pounds to the acre, while the yield of the Little Dutch variety is considerably less. Maryland smoking tobacco. The seed-bed should be located on a dark, friable, loamy soil with a southern exposure. The old method of burning the seed-bed has been largely abandoned, but, if used, care should be taken to burn only small timber and brush. A large quan- tity of ashes is detrimental to the growth of the young plants. All trees within thirty or thirty-five feet should be cut down and piled on the north and west sides
