LIFE OF THE SILKWORM.

it limy Kxlttence.
The silkworm it the larvae of ..the
mulberry-feeding moth, on inconspic-
uous moth of ashy white wings. The
male is not half an inch long, anil the
female is little longer and stouter. The
silkworm is hairless, of an ashen gray
or cream color, grows to a length of
three to three.and a half inches and is
slender. Its ;■ tur.i! .ford is the leaves

or vesseln consist of two long sacs
running along the sides of the body.
When the larva is fully matured fine!
ready to change to the pupa condition,
it proceeds to spin its cocoon, in which
'operation it ejects from both glands
at the -same time a line or thread
about 4,000 .yards long, moving its
head around in regular order for three
•days or thereabouts, wrapping itself
lip completely. The cocoon; with the

it. The prospects are Unit, it may now

results thus obtained by improved ir-
rigation facilities in lower Egypt, the
British are sanguine that an even larg-
er proportional benefit will be derived

the upper Nile. Tt is proposed to dam
one of the lakes which form tlie sourc-

reservoir to draw upon at need. Sir
