Fire Blight ot Pear and Apple.
Tho University of Idaho has issued
a press bulletin upon "Fire Blight A
Bacterial Disease of the Pear and Ap
ple." The people of the Pacific Coast
commonly call this pear blight, but
those who have come to this country
from Minnesota and adjoining states
familiar with the blichtinc of the
apple trees which is especially common
with Russian varieties and crabapples.
In the bulletin Prof. Henderson says
the blighting of apple trees is becoming
common in Idaho. He pronounces the
firfi-hlioht the worst and most to be
dreaded of all the insect pests and
fungous diseases with which the or
chardist must contend. Three years
ago it was unknown to him in the
Southern part of Idaho; now there is
hardly an orchard in certain districts
which is not more or less blighted. In
the northern part of the state the dis
ease has been known in pear orchards
for ten years but has hardly ever at
tacked the aDDle. The disease should
not be mistaken for the pear-leaf blight,
a disease which attacks the leaves of
pear trees and also injures the fruit
Prof. Henderson describes as follows
Appearance of BlljjUt:
"Luckily the disease is a very con
epicioas one. which renders its presence
in an orchard the more inexcusable
when well known. It affects twigs
branches or trunks. From the ex peri
ments of Waite, it has been found that
it cannot attack the plant Ithrough the
uninjured bark or leaf. It can, how
ever, gain entrance through any injured
place on trunk, limb or even leaf. Its
most common points' of entrance are
natural ones. These are the young
growing tips of the branch, the stigma
of the flower, or the elands which ee-
crete nectar. Therefore the flower-
blight;' the 'twig-blight,' and the
branch or trunk blieht' are all forms
of this disease.
"In the first, the young twig, especial
ly if it be growing rapidly, turns black
in both leaf and Etem, and wherever the
leaves are blighted, they remain- black
and dead through the ensuing winter.
This black, niratkal flag is the surest
evidence of its presence.
"In the 'flower Wight' a whole bunch
of flowers, or frequently every bunch
upon the tree will be affected, and dying
back to the beginning of the spur, hold
the blackened flowers and young
fruit also through the entire year. This
is the most common form on the apple.
"Freauentlv an entire limb or even
the trunk will be affected for only
""short distance, while the top will still
be entirely free from the disease, and
this can onlv be understood when we
speak of how the disease is spread.
"More frequently upon the pear eev
eral limbs and even the whole trunk
will be affected, and when this is the
case the tree should be cut out, root
Means of Dissemination.
"If the young shoots of a tree affected
with blight be examined, email dropi
of sticky, thick fluid will be found ex
odinz from the edce of the diseased
area. If one of these drops be exam'
ined with a high power of a microscope.
myriads of little oblong bodies will be
seen, some separate, some in short
chains. These are bacteria. Arthur
proved that these bodies, innocnlated
into a sound tree by a needle, would
produce the disease: Waite proved to
na beyond dispute that insects, especial
ly bees are the main instruments
their dissemination. They are attracted
by the viscid Eap, suck up part or all
of the drop, and then carry thousands
of these germs with them to innoculate
flowers, shoots, or wounded places
. the bark. Undoubtedly heavy currents
of wind assist in spreading the disease
and probably account for the common
ness of 'twig blight.' The question
comes right here: Shall I keep bees if
I have an orchard? Certainly, and for
two reasons. First the honey, and the
revenue derived from it, are often not
small object to the farmer. Second, the
bees'are absolutely needed to assist in
proper cross-fertilization or pollination
of the flowers. This leads us to the sub
ject of remedies, for preventives there
"As soon as the bacteria are carried to
young flower or wound, they effect
entrance, and living upon the sap and
starch, multiply nipidly. If they gain
entrance along a limb or trunk, they
live in the inner bark and cambium'
laver. that layer which adds yearly to
the growth of both bark and wood.
"It can readily be seen from this
that they are well covered, and conse
onentlv snravinz does no good. The
only remedy thns far found has been
and is the careful and continuous use of
the saw and pruning knife. All dis
eased shoots and limbs should be cut
off at from 6 inches to one foot below
the place of evident infection or injury,
as the bacteria have always gone down
deeper into the limb than seems to be
the case from the outside. Many prun
era have the habit of splitting down the
bark to see how far the disease has pro
ceeded, but this practice is to be con
demned, as they never can see how far
the disease has proceeded, and the in
cision of the knife may carry the bac
teria from diseased to healthy tissues.
If the blight is bad in either the pear or
apple orchard, the knife or saw should
be sterilized each time it is used, by
either passing it through a flame or dip
ping it into weak carbolic acid-water,
or into kerosene. The pruned limbs or
fragments should be collected and
burned and both pruning and burning
should be done mainly in the dormant
season, before the eap has started, the
bacteria have awakened, and the bees
are visiting the orchard. This is the
best time for pruning and burning, but
not the only one; it should be done
whenever the disease makes its appear
ance. All large wounds should be
painted over with paint as soon as ihe
tree ia trimmed, to prevent the reinocu
lation through the exposed tissues.
Where the blight is bad, even young
shoots orwater sprouts should have
their put bases painted, for it has been
shown time and time rgaiii that the
limbs atid even trunks have been inocu
lated through these cut stubs.
4 'The pear is much more easily pi uno ,
for thiB disease than is the apple. Un
the former it commonly manifests it
self in dead or dying shoots, limbs, or
trunks, which can readily be cut away
below the progress of the disease On
the apple, however, it is commonly tho
shoots all over tho tree, and especially
the fruit spurs and their clusters of
flowers, which are most a ffectcd. Prun
ing here becomes a much more difficult
and even serious undertaking. hero
only a few Bhoots and fruit spurs aro
affected these can be cut away close to
the tree, and the wound immediately
covered with paint. When, however,
almost all of tho fruit spurs on tho
whole tree havo died, the best way is
to cut off entire and largo limbs, cover
the wounds with paint, and stimulate
the production of new Bhoots and subse-
auent fruit spurs. Many such trees are
to be found in and around Boise, Iew
Plymouth and many other places. In
the former place my attention was
called by Inspector McPherson to a very
interesting tbouch sad evidence of the
efficacv of bees in spreading the disease-
All the splendid larce apple trees near
the hives were without 'exception sen
ouslv injured by blight, while as we
proceeded on radii from tho hives tho
blight grew less and less, and almost
disappeared on the edge of the orchard
farthest from the hives
, Other Helps.
It haB been often noticed that rapid
ly growing trees are more subject to
blight than slower growers, and that
those in low ground or 'swales' are more
subject than those on drier ground. Or
chards should therefore be planted on
well drained land, and should not be
stimulated by too much water or too
"Though all of the varieties of the
pomaceous fruits are subject to this
disease, as said before, some varieties
have been found more subject to the
attapkn of bliuht than others. Ol the
apples, the crabs of all kinds have been
found very prone to blight. Amongst
the pear, in most places, the Anjou, An
gouleme and Seckel are most resistant,
Bartlett and Flemish Beauty are less so,
while the Idaho. Clapp and Winter
Nelis are very subject to blight."
Angora Business In New Mexico.
The American Sheep Breeder publish

of the A. A. G. B. A., upon his observa

"I believe that the prize kid story of
the district is one credited to Mrs. J. A.
McGregor, of Lake Valley, who won the
honors down there by raising 3SS k ds

one told at the Ludlow ranch, for there
they shear by machines, and during the

kept the wheels from going around the

CHILDREN ROBBED OF THEIR
The most serious thine in life is ma
ternity. The child who inherits weak
ness is handicapped tor lite in tne strug
gle for existence. The weak and sickly
mother surely devotes her offspring to
misery and nnstortune. Ihe romantic
idea of marriage is based on love and love
alone. The scientific idea of marriage
demands sound health as a basis of mat
rimony. The utter helplessness of love is
written in a thousand experiences of
young motherhood. The child, the
mother would die lor, cnes in ner arms,
and she is too weak and worn to comfort
it She can do naught but weep in
As surely a the most serious thing in
life is maternity so the most necessary
thing for the prospective mother is pre
paration. For preparation is possible.
There is, in general, no need for the
weakness and weariness so often associ
ted with maternity. There is no need
for the nervous anxiety, the prolonged
birth pangs, and after enervation, to
commonly experienced by mothers.
In this day, even women understand
the training necessary for athletic ex
ercise. They know that to successfully
sustain the strain of outdoor sports they
must prepare themselves by training.
And yet the average woman will face the
great strain of maternity without the
slightest preparation for the extraordin
ary event before her Nerves, muscles are
all to be submitted to an extraordinary
strain and yet there is no attempt to fit
them for the ordeal.
The fact needs to be impressed on
every woman that she can prepare for
the strain of motherhood as she can pre
pare for any other extraordinary demand
to be made upon the vital forces. The
nature of this preparation is well set
forth in the following letter :

On last Saturday we peiziid the oppor
tunity to take a vacation, ami in con -
pany with Mrs. (5. W. Roberts, we went
by stage to Boekeydell, whero we en
joyed the generotiH and refined hospital
ity of Mrs. A. H. Redfield and her
laughter, Mrs. W. C Levena. After
many busy weeks of work this day
stands out in memory as the Oasis irj
the desert to the way-worn traveler in
the far off eastern land, the sweet com
munion of friends. The sad, but sweet
remembrance of the loved and lost, the
tender memories of pioneer day, the
hopes we all expressed for the future
that soon will lead us who are on
the shady side of life beyond the con
fines of time to the joyful reunions with
our loved ones who have gone before.
The dinner at-this typical New England
home was certainly an unwritten poem,
because word could not do ju-tica to
the delicious viands of which we par
took. It was with rvarot that we noticed
the evening sun that indicated to us
that like all pleasant days that one was
closing, and we were compelled to re
turn to our post of duty and take up the
bunlen of life again. Wo thank our en
tertainers for that one glad day.
Dairy and Food Cjmimsslo ier Bjiley
haa been busy lately in bringing viola
tors of the food laws to Justice. The
lraclico. taking .tiuiplej of milk from
the waotis and testing them has dis
cloeed a rec!nt tendency to uater milk.
The supply of milk is Mtort now and
some dairy men of large business and
good repuution have succumbed to
temptation and watered their milk.
These have not been denying the fact
when arrested. One prominent iniU
man who was delivrriog to wholesale
customers milk that tested onlv 3 per
cent while his cans intended for retail
customers conuine 1 4 per cent milk,
when asked by the ju Ige what he had
to say in explanation of the unlawfully
low supply of butter fat in the whole
sale cans, replied tliat there was noth
ing tq say. One p3cnlbr cae to which
Commission-r Iiailey's attention was di
rected was that of an old man who de
livers milk to a limited number of cua
tomera with a 'hand wagon. Some of
these customers have recently found
their supply of milk peculiar and a
sample was sent to Mr. Bailey. It con
tained less than 1 pr cent of fat. The
man who supplied the milk, under ex
amination, admitted that his available
supply of milk had proved inadequate
and he had made up for deficiencies by
adding diluted condensed milk. Be
tween the investijrations of the Sute
Board of Health which is looking into
the cleanliness of the city's milk supply
and the dairy and food commissioner's
