Not to enlarge the
collection. It is for the purpose which I have indicated. If there are any particular specimens of insect life that are infesting our crops or orchards, of course they will be added to our collection. But we hope to curtail the activities in whatever particular branch of this appropriation we can without affecting the field work which is taken care of in the next item. I do not know why this item was inserted in this way. It was here when I took office and I have often wondered why it could not be merged with the next appropriation, because it is confined entirely to the office and its equipment and supplies in the city. I suppose this was done to separate the Ottawa activities from the outside.
