1 Farm Notes -gg-gg-gj Errs? 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 the 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 and branch. 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 are none. Remedies. "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 much fertilizer. "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 ed an interview with Secretary Fulton, of the A. A. G. B. A., upon his observa tions during the recent trip to theSouth west. from which we quote the follow ing: "New Mexico is certainlv one of the banner Angora districts of the country There 'tis a land of a. 'thousand hoofs on a thonand hills.' Angoras everywhere. The fine condition of the animals and the success of their owners tells the story the story, i. e., that the Angora ia a decided money maker. "But, Oh, my! Oh, mel The poor things must think it is a long time bet tween drinkB down there. The last rain was 2S6 days behind its fondly remem bered predecessor, and in Lake Valley, where the precious stuff costs 35 cents a barrel, a fellow is supposed to think twice before he throws any to the birds But that doesn't feaze the local goat men. They know right where all the geysers are at least I am satisfied the Sierra county delegation do. All happy and contented. Flocks in fine condition and all the breeders are looking forward to a most prosperous season this year. "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 from 246 does. Another good story is one told at the Ludlow ranch, for there they shear by machines, and during the repairing of some little accident that kept the wheels from going around the Mexican shearers worked with the ordi nary shears. The few head thus shorn were afterwards gone over with the machine clipper and moluir of weight equivalent to a value of from 30 cents to 40 cents was obtained from each animal. A consoling thought for the machine owner when he ia struggling with nerve trying task of keeping the cutteia so they make a better showing than would the average buzzsaw. Once mastered, however, and kept sharp, they certainly do splendid work. The trick is in know ing how to grind them. Machine shear ing is unquestionably the best. They are all gradually coming to it in New Mexico. Mrs. Artner's splendid flock is in fine condition and her home is in the most picturesque spot of any of the breeders, bnt one needB to start the day before to get there. She is not worried the least bit about her chickens getting over into her neighbor's yard. In one of the plays picturing country life the act of 'dropping in on dad,' whose farm is at the base of a mountain from the opposite side of which his son frequently visits him, is performed by In marriage only when there is equality of health as well as affection. Affection may be the basis of unity in marriage, but the superstructure depends largely on the womanly health. When the wife it tormented with backache, distressed by headache, and racked by nervous ness, she has no ambition for exercise or pleasure. Doctor Pierce's Favorite Prescriptioa makes weak women strong and sick women well. It cures headache, back ache, and other womanly ills by curing the diseases of the womanly organism which cause them. It establishes regu larity, dries weakening drains, heals in flammation and ulceration and cures female weakness. Weak and sick women are invited to consult Dr. Pierce, by letter, free. All correspondence is held as strictly private and sacredly confidential. Address Dr. R. V. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y.

CHILDREN ROBBED OF THEIR BIRTHRIGHT. 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 sympathy. 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. PROPER. PREPARATION. 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 : "I take pleasure in informing you of the birth of a boy in perfect health, on May iSth, 1899," writes Mrs. L. ECorti, of Waltonville, Pa., Box 25. "I cannot find words sufficiently strong to express to yon my thanks, for the baby's coming was almost without pain, and when my husband arrived with the doctor the child was already bora. The neighbors who were with me, and my husband and the doctor could not believe their eyes. Hav ing suffered so much before I never bc EeTcd myself able to be delivered of ft sliding down a chute to tho father's dooryard. That is about the way one drops in on dad when they vit the Taylor ranch. But when you once got there you are quite contented to stay, for they do have good stuff to eat down in that country and the Taylor ranch is no exception to the rale. There is a lit tle coterie of coffee pots in the territory, of which I will ever hold most tender recollections." For n New Political Party. A Chicago news dispatch of Tuesday's date says : "The supremacy of 'some political party with a settled policy regarding the great corporations of the country,' has been declared by Judge Peter S. urosscup to be the means 01 escape from an 'Impending transformation in the ideals lying at the foundation of a republican form of government.' "Speaking before tho Chicago Congre gational Club at its monthly dinner at the Auditorium, on 'The Church, the. State and ihe Individual,' the jurist de clarcd himself a friend of the 'honestly managed corporation,' while deploring uiai ine individualism 01 M .years ago has been lost in vast merges of capital. "The platform of his proposed politi cal party was outlined by tho speaker as follows : 'Recognition of the fact that the corporation is 'here to stay,' and cannot be driven out by a 'mad dog' policy.' " 'A demand that the capitalization of a corjtoration shall represent its assets.' " 'Insistence that the great seal of a state shall not be employed to sanction the existence of institutions 'born bank rupt.' " 'Restrictions on the organization of corporations of 'Eiffel tower construc tion,' offering 'ground floor privileges' to a few stockholders.' " 'The subjection of all corporations to Government supervision.' " 'The dishonest corporation as an in stitution of this country will never be broken up until some such policy has been adopted by a courageous, high minded political party, and no such party will ever take it up until it is as sured of favorable public sentiment,' said Judge Grosscup."

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.
