The Affriculttqpil G-oifJIJU publishes an article with reference to the Colorado beetle accompanied by a coloured plate exhibiting the beetle in its various stages. It gives at the same time a risumi from the pen of Mr. Andrew Murray of its history, its habitq, and the proper mode of dealing with it. About the end of October the perfect beetles, it is stated, descend into the ground, to pass the winter, so that littl6 need be feared from them this year in England. For getting rid of them an arsenical poison known as Scheele's green is recommended, but whether in powder or in liquid the poison must be used sparingly or it would kill -the foliage of the potato. When applied in liquid it ought to be mixed in the proportion of three table- spoonfuls to eight gallons of water.
