A New Fob. — A new enemy to wheat has been discovered in Ontario. In its mature form the insect is in shape like the common house fly, but much smaller, and rather more slender in proportion to width. The larva lives in the stem of wheat, and destroys the plant by devouring the substance of the stalk, which becomes nearly dissevered, and the head of wheat consequently dies off prematurely. The pest will attack oats, barley, or rye, but it is said to prefer wheat.

The purchaser of the hull has made a splendid bargain, as everything has been stripped and taken on shore.
