yet the whole race is affected, and if
we do not adopt measures so as to
assist nature to regain her power, the
potatoe will eventually be lost to
mankind. Nature allows a consider
able margin for casualties and indis
crelions, but she will not forever be
trifled with. A practical farmer in
Jasper county, Idrwa? Jas. Warren,
who has been familiar with potatoe
culture about 43 years, in various
countries and climates of both hemis
pheres, says :
"My earliest recollections are that
most of the plants bore clusters of
seed balls, and some of them did not,
which shows that the disturbance was
progressing even then, but not far
enough advanced to cause much of a
damage. The later varieties raised
Je9s seed than the early kind, simply
because the preceding generation had
been prematurely cut down by frost
in Autumn, and from that tme there
has been a gradual decrease, until of
bite years a cluster of seed balls is a
novelty. Now, the potatoe being in
character hermaphrodite, it is the in
tention of nature that each blossom
should fructify itself, and others near
by it that each plant should bear
and mature seed to perfect ripeness.
Either tig seed or the tubers is then
in a fit condition to propagate, and
not otherwise for there is a sympa
thetic action going on, between and

parts of trie plants during the process

the vital principle in their proper
proportion'--, which is to insure to
both seed and tiu;er the ability to
transmit a perfect organism to the
next generation. It this natural pro
cess is frustrated in-a small decree,
the organism must be imperfect, and
although a tribe of tubers may carry
on the wrk of reproduction for a
nirtli or time under these adversc-eiif.-umstanccs,
their vitality must at
ngth be expended. Fungus now

cut back by frost, and the last ts so
lute the vine is often cut down before
the seed igatures. As soon as the
.early tubers attain the size of hickory
tints the roots are laid bare, and the
plant remoi st lessly robbed. Being
once thus robbed they are left in the
ground to be dug up at the time of
the late cfop, and if they have made

with me, your potatoes bhall die.
Generally no selection is made for
the next year's sets. Those not sold

taken, for table use ; and misshapen
ones left for seed which is wrong.
