Spraying for Brown Rot

Columbia uuil the Willamette valley to
reduce loses of their prunes and eher

jmblished by the U. S. Department of
Agriculture 'in a professional paper,
Bulletin No. 3(18, of the Departmental
wrics, by Chacles Brooks and D. F.
Fisher, of the office of fruit-disease
5nestigationj in the bureau of Plant
The recommendations, which call for
repeated sprayings at certain times
with Belf-boiled lime-sulphur or Borde
aux mixture combined with resin-fish-oil
soap to make them stick and spread,
are based largely on promising results
obtained in experiments during the last
nea-aon in the orchards of A. W. Moody
at Felida, Wash. The results are pub
lished not as final conclusions but to
j;ive growers the benefit of such know
ledge as was obtained, in the belief that
the spraying system recommended is
well worth careful trial.
Observations for a number of seasons
liave shown that the apothecia, a stage
of the fungus that develops from the
fallen prunes, is tho probable sourrc

It U an unusual thing for a drugg'iBt
to sell medicine under a guarantee to

Tet this is the way Danial J. Fry, the
popular druggist, ii selling Mi-o-na, the
standard dyspepsia remedy.
Never before haa he had bo large a
number of customers tell him that
medicine has been successful ss with

can always be relied upon. The per
centage of cures is so great that there
is little risk to Daniel J. Fry in guar
anteeing to return the money if the
medicine does not relieve. And he
stands ready to do so without any ques
tions. Headaches, all forms of indigestion,
specks before the eyes, dizzy fading,
poor sleep, ringing is the ears and all
forms of liver trouble are helped by
Mi-o-na. A few days' treatment should
show considerable gain in health while

cia. In tho spraying experiments the early
applications of spray were washed off,
which showed the importance of the ad
dition of a sticker, but even under
rather unsatisfactory conditions,
spraying has given fairly good result
The prune plats given both early and
late spraying with self-boiled lime-sulphur
set from two to five times as much
fruit as the umprayed ones, and gave
a yield of two and a half times as much
and had one-ninth as much brown-rot
on the harvested and one-eighth as
much on the stored prunes.
In epraying, self-boiled lime-sulphur

have both given good results, but the
former has seemed somewhat more sat

soap 9hould be used to each 50 gallons
of the mixture. Where this soap can
not be readily obtained, it. may be made
up as follows:
Resin 5 pounds
Potaah lye, such as is sold for
washing purpose-s 1 pound
Fishoil 1 pint
Water S gallons
The resin is dissolved in the oil by
heating in a large kettle. After thi
has partially cooled the potash is add
ed, the mixture being slowly stirred
and carefully watched to avoid its
boiling over. A part of the wnter is
now added and the boiling continued
until the mixture will dissolve in cold
water. This will require about one hour.
The remainder of the water is then
slowly added and the mixture thorough
This soap was found very valuable in
making the snray spread and adhere to

be used with commercial lime-sulphur.

Blossom Infection of Cherries.
Observations made near Vancouver,
Wash., and in the vicinity of Salem.
Oregon, in April, showed that there had
been a blossom-infection of cherries
simiuar to that already described on
prune. It appeared that most of the
infection had taken place after the
petals had fallen but before the fruit
had a rhonre to push through the husk.
Black Republican cherries seemed espe
cially subject to infection, estimates in
dicating that on this vnriety fully fl'l
per cent of the blososms were infected
with Alonilia. In many orchards at least
CRACK AMERICAN TRACK-
MEN COMPETE TODAT
(By United Press.)
. Philadelphia, Mar. 11. Some
of the greatest track men in
the country will compete uere
today in the annual Meadow
Brook club indoor meet at Con-
vention hall in which the Mill-
rose, Irish American and New
York athletic cluus of INew
York have entered their entire
teams. Joe Loomis, the Chicago
speed master, Ray Morse, How-
ard Drew, the negro flash and
Brewer of Washington, also are
among tiie entrants. Keenest
rivalry exists between the New
York clubs alone and the dash
events especially are expected
to bring out star showings.
7o per cent of the blossoms of other
varieties were similarly infected.
The work as yet has not been carried
out as fuily as could be desired. It
seems evident, however, that the Mon
ilia blossom blight was the cause of se
rious losses in the Willamette valley in
th season of 11)15, and that the brown'
rot of tho fruit wan the cause of con
siderable loss at the canneries and
heavy losses in the shipping of fresh
The spraying experiments with chet
ries were begun late in the season.
No early sprayings were made and
therefore no results were obtained on
the effect, of spraying upon the blos
som infections. The brown-rot at the
canneries and in storage, however, was
greatly reduced by lute applications of
Bordeaux mixture and self-boiled lime
sulphur. With tho Royal Ann cherries

deaux mixture than with the self-boiled
It seems probable that a treatment
for cherries similar to that outlined for
prunes would give satisfactory control
of both the blurfom in'fection and the
later brown-rot attacks on the fruit.
