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.

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." , .
