This loss has seemed to be especially
severe lu the case of the Ben Davis j
and Black Guuo, the latter n first eous- I
in of the Ben. A report made public- j
within the ast three weeks by Pro- i
feasor Beach of the Iowa station gives !
consideration to the causes und comll- I
tlous which he believes are resKuslble j
for the condition referred o. A part i
of the trouble seems to be due to au j
appearance of the Illinois canker, a '
bacterial disease that attacks and
spreads in the cambium layer nud Just
beneath. This trouble has beeu aggru.
voted by early fall and late spring i
freezes of the past two or three years;
also by two unusually dry summers
and lastly by the fact that most or
chards in the northern states bore to
the breaking point last summer, when
the trees were in a depleted couditlon
and soil moisture short. An Interest
ing stntement in Professor Bench's re
port Is that which states that the loss
sustained has been fur less In orchards
that have been given careful cultlvn
tion during the dry summers of the
past three years, and it Is noted thai
sick trees in such orchards are making
much more rapid recovery thua those
in orchards where the soil was not cul
tivated. To lessen likelihood of dam
age from the combined causes men
tloned the orchards In which trees lire
suffering should be cultivated, fruit
should be thinned if tho trees are In
bearing, and canker infections should
be cut out nud sterilized with u solu
tlou of mercurial chloride nt the rate of
1 to 1.000 and the wound painted over
with white lead.

Not In several years has the yield r
hay been lighter than will be the case
In practically till sections of the coun
try where timothy and clover have
been the standby. In fact, so short
has the yield on such meadows been In
some localities that the owner or rent
cr has not deemed It worth while to go
through the formality of cutting It
This means, if it menus anything, that
roughage will be Bcnrce and high pric
ed during the coming fall and winter
This means In turn that the need will
bo correspondingly great of utilizing to
the full the vnlue of the corn crop.
Some successful dairymen still hold to
the practice of harvesting the corn
with the binder and shredding it after
It has cured In the shock, supplylug
siicculence In the winter rntlou In the
form of roots rather than by menu- ut
silage. But innny more will look to the
silo to furnish the cheapest and most
palatable ration. Where one has ti
bunch of steers to feed or is uillklr.g a i
dozen or more cows the silo Is by fur j
the most safe and effective method of !
securing a' maximum amount of fod
der from a given nrea of land. Many
excellent types of silos nre on the niiir
ket and nlso In actual operation, and II
is not a bad Idea to visit several farms
on which different types nre In use be
fore buying one. The cost of the silo
plant will vary from S.100 to $.100. the
higher price being for those made of
cement block or vitiitled brick.

Professor J. C. Whitten of tho Mis
Rourl horticultural station has lutelj
moilo nn Interesting report of some
experiments ho lias conducted cover
lug n period of ten years in the matter
of whitewashing the trunks of peach
trees for protective purposes, lie re
ports that this treatment enabled tin
trunks of the trees to retlect the rays
of the sun. and as n result they re j
ntaliied dormant much longer than
trees that were not whltewasheil. In j
a period of ten years he reports elghi i
crops of fruit from whitewashed trees ;
and all but two of them full crops,
while from trees of the same variety ;
that were not whitewashed Ave crops
were secured, and only three of these '
were what could be called full crops
lie summarizes the results of the
whitewash treatment by saying that 1
In the period of ten years the treated
trees produced Just twice as tmicb I
fruit as ttiose not treated. The ex
pcrlenre the writer has had with sour j
sap the result of a too early and un
even starting of the sap lu the late
wlntor or early spring loads him to
believe that this treatment Professor
Whitten recommends for peach trees
would give very good results In the
cose of both pear and apple trees In
sections where they are liable to dam
age from sour sap.

For any who hare found the usual i
methods of canning corn and beans
somewhat risky the pickling method :
offers a good substitute. Hrlefly, this '
Is putting the vegetables down in salt. '.

are at the stage desired, boil them In
a large kettle or boiler for about flffeen
minutes, or until the .allk Is set, and
then cut and sera hi from tho cob and :
mix with salt nt the rnte of four j
quarts or corn to one or salt. The

and plate or stone to keep out the
dirt. Hefore using this corn it should
be freshened and seasoned to suit one's
taste. Corn kept In this way Is tender
and keeps its flavor remarkably well.
