CONTROL DISEASE OF APPLE
Most Bffeotlve Treatment for Blight
I* to Cut Out Every Affected
Twig and Canker.
(By J. B. a NORTON. 54A«* nd B*port-
Tbe molt effective treatment (or
the control of apple bllfbt consists
tn cutting out the diseased parts. In
young orohafds and in nurseries
where there is naturally but little
blight, and In old orchards In seasons
when blight Is not serious, by cutting
out every blighted twig and canker
ae soon as possible, giving special at-
tention to the body and base of the
tree, a bad outbreak may be prevented
in following years. It is also neces-
sary to destroy all blight in the neigh-
borhood on wild or cultivated trees as
the bees may carry it long distances.
Bees are, however, necessary to pol-
lenate the flowers.
When old bearing trees are badly
Infected, winter Is the best time to
cut out the blight. The outs on large
branohes or In the trunk should be
brushed with a disinfectant and when
dry protected by painting with white
lead in linseed oil. In cutting blight
in the ifrowlng season, It is important
to wlpo the pruning Instrument after
each cut on a cloth or sponge wet with
either carbolic acid, concentrated
lime-sulphur, 6 per cent formalin, or
other disinfectant to prevent relnfec
tion of the next out. Cut twice sev-
eral Inches below where the blight
shows, as in spring the germs extend
muoh farther In than they show on
Honey Shortage In Britain.
Even the bee feels the war. Ger-
many has always been the largest buy-
er of American honey, but this year
has taken only $10,000 worth. There
is a honey shortage in England, how-
ver, and our bees may be happy yet.
Taken altogether, according to official
reports coming to the department of
commerce, American bees have be-
haved handsomely this year. They
have made an unusually large crop,
the average yield being 36.2 pounds
for every colony, as compared with
32.2 pounds last year.
Our ordinary crop is 50,000,000
pounds, and it will be greater than
that this year. Prices are down, how-
ever, because of the shifting market
and heavy yield, and also because of
a very much heavier crop In the West
Indies, which is handled here This
country has never sent much honey to
England. Only $4,000 worth went
there last year.
The Leader Needs It?
Proper nourishment, in proper
quantities, is absolutely necessary
to the preservation of good health
—subscription dollars are absolute-
ly necessary to maintain the stabil-
ity of a newspaper—sure that's fact
and we think you'll agree with us.
It's true [taper doesn't much but
tiie little bits put together makes
it cost something and that amounts
to $1.00 a year. Many overlook
paying it because it's such a small
matter but if we could reveal to
you our appeciation of It, prompt
payment would be forthcoming.
We need the subscription money,
if your subscription has expired,
please call and see us. Take care
of it now and we'll feel just the
same as you do when the other fel-
low owes you something and steps
up and lays it in your hand. Do
