Treatment—Early blight may be
held in check by the application of the
fungicide Bordeaux mixture. This is
prepared and applied as follows: Pour
into a fifty-gallon barrel twenty-five
gallons of clean water; then weigh out
six pounds of crushed bluestone, or
copper sulphate, and after tying it in
a piece of coarse sacking, suspend the
package just beneath the surface of
the water by means of a string tied to
a stick laid across the top of the bar-
rel. In another suitable vessel, such
as a tub or half-barrel, slack four
pounds of fresh lime. Slack the lime
carefully by pouring on small quanti-
ties of water at a time, the object being
to obtain a smooth, creamy liquid, free
from grit. When the lime is slacked
add sufficient water to make twenty-
five gallons. As soon as the bluestone
Is dissolved, which will require an hour
or more, pour the lime milk and blue-
stone solutions together, using a sep-
arate barrel for the purpose and stir-
ring constantly to effect a thorough
mixing. It sometimes happens that
sufficient lime is not added, and as a
result the foliage may be injured. To
be certain that the mixture is safe,
hold a steel knife blade in it for two
or three minutes, and if the polished
surface of the blade shows a copper-
colored tinge add more lime, but if it
stays bright the mixture is safe to use.
Application of the mixture should be-
gin when the plants are four to six
inches high, and should be repated at
intervals of twelve to fourteen days
until five or six treatments have been
made. By adding eight ounces of
Paris green to each barrel of the Bor-
deaux mixture a combined fungicide
and insecticide is obtained, and this
will prevent the attacks of the Colo-
rado beetle, the flea beetle and other
insects. Before adding the Parij green
it should be mixed with a small quan-
tity of water, and when a thin paste
is obtained this should be thoroughly
stirred into the barrel of Bordeaux so-

oats were practically uninjured, and
the result in the harvest was equally I
good, for the binder got around the
sprayed plot without a hitch, while in
the other it was being choked at every |
round on account of the luxuriant
growth of the charlock.
Another experiment was carried out
in an oat ileld sown down with clovers
and rye grass, and the effect upon |
these plants is the question raised by |
our correspondent. Naturally one j
fears that what destroys charlock may j
destroy clover, but, so far as the Torr
experiment is concerned, this does not j
appear to be the case. The spraying
in this second trial took place when
the oats were about 14 inches in length,
and two plots were selected— the one I
getting a 15 per cent and the other a
20 per cent solution of sulphate of iron, j
In both cases the charlock was ex-
terminated, and the clovers at harvest
were found to be as luxuriant on the
sprayed as on the unsprayed plots.
Another satisfactory feature of the
spraying was its effect on thistles. 1
These in every case were blasted, and [
in the case of the plot subjected to the j
30 per cent solution, effectually made
harmless. As the result of what he :
saw in these experiments, Professor
Campbell has every confidence in rec- |
ommending farmers to adopt spraying
with sulphate of iron in doses of a
10'per cent solution for the general
extermination of this most trouble-
Spraying Wild Mustard.
The following account by the Scot-
tish Farmer of experiment carried on
in England, for the destruction of wild
mustard, or "charlock," are of un-
usual interest. The following is a
brief account of an experiment con-
ducted last year by Mr. Ovens, of
Torr, on behalf of the Lancashire
County Council, in a ileld badly infest-
ed with charlock. Professor Campbell,
under whose direction the experiment
was conducted, could not find a field
badly enough infested in the County
Palatine, but Mr. Ovens -was, unfor-
tunately, able to supply the deficiency
in t very marked degree.
The field selected was under oats
after lea. A portion containing 110
square yards was reserved for spray-
ing, and another portion, of equal ex-
tent, was left unsprayed for compari
soc with it, and the remainder of the
field was gone over with a "charlock"
weeding machine. The spraying took
place on the 14th of June, when the
oats were fully twelve inches in length
and the material used was a solution
of sulphate of iron, diluted to 13 per
cent. A remarkable result was ob
tained. The "charlock" was totally
destroyed, and in a few days the con-
trast between the two plots was strik-
ing to a degree. Where the spraying
had been performed the field bore a
dark green hue, while the unsprayed
| plot was quite yellow, with charlock
' in full flower. This is conclusive
' enough as regards the destruction of
I the charlock, but the important ques-
| tion remains. What effect had the
I spraying upon the oats and the clover?
I It is satisfactory to find that the an-

Oklahoma Wheat Experiment..
The experiment wheat plats at the
Oklahoma Experiment Station were
ut. with few exceptions, June 12-13.
The wheat was grown on medium tip-
land prairie soil, without special prep-
aration aside from manuring a part
of the plats and green manuring others
by plowing under cow pea stubble.
Thirteen varieties averaged 22.6 bush-
els per acre, only one yielding less
than 20 bushels. The largest yield of
any of these plats was 27.9 bushels.
Eleven of these varieties have been
grown for four years on the station
farm giving average yield of 28.5 bush-
els. Sibley's New Golden, Mo. Blue
Stem, Nigger and Early Red Clawson
have given slightly largest average
yields for the four years. In the time
seeding trials early sowing gave best
results. Twelve plats sown in Septem-
ber gave average yield of 28.7 bushels;
eight sown Oct. 5-15 yielded average
of 21.5 bushels: 12 sown in November
gave average of 5.4 bushels of low
grade wheat. All these plats were
sown with the lted Russian variety.
Plowing in July gave average yield
G.3 bushels greater than plowing early
Plowing four inches deep gave slight-
ly less yields than plowing eight inches
deep. No gain came from subsoiling
land plowed eight inches deep.
Manuring with stable manure great-
ly increased yield in all cases. Four
manured plats gave averaged yield of
27.5 bushels, while four under like
treatment except with no manure gave
average yield of 14.5 bushels. On an
acre in wheat continuously for seven
years, the half manured in fall of 1898
yielded at the rate of 30.6 bushels; the
half unmanured 12 bushels per acre.
Improving the physical condition of
the soil rather than adding plant food

Fifty-eight plats, including every
plat on the farm except those sown
late in the season, gave an average
yield of 22.67 bushels per acre, or about
10 bushels more than the average
wheat yield of the United States for a
series of years.
TI ..Hitmen's MarTelons Sight.
It has often been remarked that civ-
ilized people tend to become short-
sighted. This is because in tewns and
cities their vision is mostly confined to
short distances. Savage races, on the
other hand, are generally gifted with
remarkably keen sight, and a few
tribes are more noteworthy in this re-
spect than the African bushmen, whose
eyes are veritable telescopes, says
Chums. This power is no doubt a wise
provision of nature, for bushmen are a
small race, and if they were not able
to see danger a long way off they
would be exterminated by their various
enemies, whether savages of other
tribes or wild beasts.
A traveler in South Africa relates
that while walking one day in com-
pany with a friendly bushman the sav-
age suddenly stopped, and, gazing
across the plain, cried out there was a
lion ahead. The traveler gazed long
and earnestly in the direction indicated
by the bushman, but could see nothing.
"Nonsense," he said, "there's nothing
there." And he went forward again,
with the bushman following at his
heels, trembling and unwilling, and
still asserting that he could see a lion.
Presently the native came to a dead
stop and refused to budge another
inch, for this time, he declared, he
could cee a lioness with a number of
cubs, a fact which made the animal
more dangerous than ever. But the
European who could see no lioness,
much less its cubs, pushed ahead.
After walking a quarter of a mile,
however, he could dimly make out an
object moving across the horizon.
Still doubting that it could be the ob-
ject which the bushman said he had
seen, he continued to advance, and at
last was able to distinguish a lioness,
with her cubs around her, walking leis-
urely toward the woods.

Vienna Special to the London Tal£
graph; The Vienna opera house eva^
year stages "Fledermaua" with its be t
artists, as does also the Berlin opera
house. Unfortunately this masterpiece
was the Indirect cause of its compos-
er's sickness and death. On Whit
Monday "Fledermaus" was played at
the opera, and Strauss was persuaded
to conduct the overture himself, as the
representation was for charitable pur-
poses. Doctors had forbidden him to
undergo any fatigue, as he suffered
from chronic affection of the bronchial
tubes. The master was always excited
while conducting, and had been espe-
cially warned against any sudden
change in temperature. He left the
opera In a heated Btate, took cold and
felt ill on returning home. Although
astonishment filled the opera bouse at
the freshness and vivacity of Herr
Strauss, who was 74 years old, and thA
vigor with which be bandied his batoli,
it soon appeared how weak he was, and
how little fitted his nerves were any
longer to bear the fatigue and excite-
ment of public appearance. He was
soon afterward seized with general
feebleness, and was unable after that
day to leave his room, but nothing
serious was apprehended. He worked,
according to his custom, during th
^ight, sometimes till the morning, at
the composition of a ballet, "Cinder-
ella," to be acted at the opera house.
This work gave Strauss much pleasure,
and he caused the first act, which he
had just concluded, to be played be-
fore him by his stepson, the pianist,
Herr Epstein. He intended to finish
the two other acts at IschI, Salzkam-
mergut, to which place he was to have
removed soon afted for the summer. Oa
a Friday he was seized with shivering
and pronounced inflammation of tho
lungs, which pursued such a rapid
course that the doctors declared tho
case hopeless on Saturday morning.
During his delirium the great composer
talked of his music, but when he parti?
recovered consciousness he expressed
hopes for recovery and entertained no
idea of death, of which he always dur-
ing his lifetime was so afraid that *ho
word was never pronounced before
him. His last words to the doctorf
were "Auf wiedersehen." He died
painlessly, surrounded by his friendj.
His last thoughts were devoted to th«
progress of his music.
It Tlas Iliid Km Development Under Pro*
The Hawaiian Islands are an ex«
ample of commercial development un-
der a close or protected system. It
was in 1866 that the islands first
touched an interest of $1,000,000 In our
import trade, chiefly through the whale
fisheries, as they made a convenient
stopping place for American whalers*
The interest was not doubled until the
reciprocity treaty went Into effect
(1877), and sugar became the great ar-
ticle of commerce, with rice as the sec-
ond in importance, but representing
only one-tenth the value of sugar. The
granting of free entry into the United
States for these two products wa
equivalent to remitting to the Ha-
waiian planters the sum of $1,000,003
a year, every dollar of which acted a$
a bounty on production. It was nat-
ural to find that so liberal a gift wai
soon appreciated, and the energies o(
the Islands were directed into laying
out plantations of sugar and rice. A
rice proved of uncertain profit, th'i
cultivation for export has not pros-
pered, although the domestic consump-
tion increased through the Influx of
Asiatics. The exports of this graiaj
were 2.250,000 pounds in 1876, attained
a maximum of 13,6.t4,200 pound3 In
1887, and are now about 6,500,000
pounds a year. Very different was tho
course of sugar, for which the only
market was the United States. Be-
ginning with an export of 26,OKI,00®
pounds in 1876, it passed 100,000,000
In 1882, doubled itself within four
years, passed 300,000,000 pounds in
1893, was 443,500,000 pounds in 1896,
and in 1897 touched 520,000,000 pounds,
giving no sign of halting or any ab-
sence of power to increase In the fu-
ture. The annual bounty of $1,000,00®
given in the first year of the operation
of the reciprocity treaty was than
more than $5,250,000—a little less than
one-half the grant made to the Louis-
iana planters in the best season of the
direct bounty In the tariff law of 1890.
