The chief papers and discussions are on apples and grapes which give much valuable information on these kinds of fruit for which Canada is so famous. In a paper on the codling moth, Mr. Bowles tells us that the insect was brought into America from the Old World about the beginning of the present century, and that the best remedy found in Canada is picking up the fallen fruit, which fall, of course, because they have worms in them. The "hay-bound" system does not seem to have been tried there, but the numbers of cocoons which have been caught in this way, show that those which fall with the early fruit, are comparatively few. To keep down the moth both plans should go along together.
