■ The larva of the codlin moth is full of resources, and evidently has the faculty of adapting itself to circumstances, as is shown by what Mr James Fergusson, of Cambridge, noticed the other clay. He had some bottle's of lemonade and hop beer stored in a room, in which was also a quantity of apples. Noticing that some of the bpttles were fizzing he investigated the matter and found codlin moth grubs in some of the corks. Mr Fergusson brought down four apparently intact corks to Mr Hewitt, and oh their being cut open, in the presence of Mr Chas. Tuck, grubs were found in each of them, and in one ' instance there being two well-developed ' healthy looking grubs in a single cork. — •' New Zealand Herald."
