Disease' Kills Canada Thistle '
"Can science kill Canada thistle
with artificially propagated disease
germs?" This is the problem plant
pathologists of the O. A: C. experi
ment station have set themselves to
answer. Large areas of this weed
pest have been found in Lane and
Polk counties dead and dying appar
ently from an attack of a fungus
disease that strikes the stalks a little
way above and below the surface of
the ground. Under this attack the
plants wilt, die and shrivel up. Cul
tures of the fungus have been made
for II. P. Barss of the station and
when properly identified will be used
to inoculate healthy thistles with a
view to wholesale destruction. Far
mers are asked to assist in these in
vestigations by sending specimens of
plants suffering from disease, should
they be able to find any. Applica
tions for cultures , should not be
made until, their worth is tested.
SERIOUS SHORTAGE OF LABOR
I walked into a Chinese laundry. It
seemed to be the easiest v. ay of get
ting in. He stood behind a little cage,
evidently a protection against vio
lence. He was scratching both elbews
at the same time. I summoned up my
best Chinese. "Very dirty iwashee.
How lonee takee. Two weekee?"
He stopped scratching long enough
to stare at me. v.y: . i
"I will endeavor to have it for you
then, sir, but you know that the short
age of colored labor hampers our ef
ficiency, .considerably." , .
Whereupon he handed me the cov
er of a package of firecrackers and I
left the shop. Exchange. :.
