Recommendations for the spraying of alfalfa to control the alfalfa weevil, Phytonomus murinusFabr., have been guided largely by Dr. H. C. Gardiner's work on the arsenical poisoning of domestic animals, which was recorded in the transcript of the Riverside Dairy Case in the United States District Court of Utah, but which has not heretofore been readily accessible to entomologists and the public, to both of whom it is of the highest importance. Dr. Gardiner, in an exhaustive series of feeding experiments, clinical observations and autopsies, determined the physiological effect of various doses of arsenic, continued for various periods of time, upon farm animals. The dangerous dose was shown to be far greater than thc amount which is contained in a feed of sprayed hay.
