With felds heavy with water from recent tains, farmers in this .district never- theless have to lace the serious con- dition of their tomato and potato crops dying from actual drought. The wilting of theso two plants in ;thc past few weeks in an inexplicable manner has puzzled almost every man who has been raising these crops, and Mr. W. A. McCubbin', Assistant Do- minion Plant Pathologist for Uncoln county, has taKen the matter in. hand end come to the above conclusion. To The Globe Mr. McCuhbin said "This strange wilting is the direct tause o! drought, and it is affecting nearly all plants growing in furrows or degressions in the land vdiere most of the has "This state of dr'bught with un- moisture all he con- tinued, "is a direct result of the re- cent heavy.-rains, which have caused a natural decay of the roots of pota- toes, beans and tomatoes. Thin de- cay lies heen assisted by no special organism, but by the natural fungi and soil bacteria, on account of the excessive moisture and hot weather combined. "When the roots said Mr.' JfcCubbin, "the natural product of decomposition clogged up the sap channels of different plants, and con- sequently the plants themselves are suffering severely from lack of wa- ter. "Up to the pwaciu he cpn-j tinued, "considerable damage has heen done, and the heavy rain of to-! day will incrsase to a great extant' the damage already done this sea- son." In some cases Mr. McCuhbin believes the plants will recover, hut there is little hope of the tomato crop, which is already very more se- verely affected plants will die, and the 'damage u'ill be.- very great, though its full extent cannot be esti- mated Mere for some days. Two Kinds of French Canadians (Simcoe Armand Lavergne was once a fol- lower of Sir Wiiiriii Laurier. He sat behind him as a member oi the House of Commons and gave the Laurier policies. his support. When Sir proposed that Canada should comjl.y with Britain's request that the Overseas llomlnions come to the mother coun- try's aid in building up a navy La- vergue and other French Literals broke with Laurier and became Na- tionalists. In -the general election of 1911 they threw all the weight they possessed bBhind Borden. The result was an increase, in the Conservative representation from Quebec from 11 the former parliament to 27 in the present one or a gain on division of 32 two-thirds of the majority in the House .by which the Borden government retains power. After the election Armand La- vcrgne made his influence felt, in a most remarkable manner, practically compelling Uorilen to abandon his own wishes and accept t as colleagues men whose only qualifications wen that 'they had held extreme anti- British views. In discussing Lavergne, it is only fair today to admit that Borden has shared Laiirier's fate in his affections. too, lias erred in being "too Brit- ish." And Government and Opposi- tion are lumped by Armand in the perdition of jingoism. BuVthe unpalatable fact persists. It was lavergne and Bourassa and their ilk that were such potent fac- tors in putting Laurier out of power and Borden in. And the burden of their complaint, was that Laurier was an advocate of a closer union with .Britain. In view of these facts, known to all men, it is not .easy for Liberals to sit quietly by while un- scrupulous partizans malign their leader- Scarcely a llay goes by that some vi'e insinuation is hot cast at Sir Wifrid'fi loyalty by some miser- able sniper of the meaner Govern- ment press. Contrast the stands taken by La- vergne and Laurier now. Both are in the' public eye this week. Lavergne threatens civil war. He'has written a letter to the Kingston Standard, in reply to an editorial in thiit paper entitled, Menace of the Hyphenated French-Canadian." (Discussing the possibility, oi a fight to determine the lights of the French, Mr. Lavergne declares, "We ate and concludes with this sig- nificant statement: "We are not and .shall not be the aggressors, but let me remind you of Canadian history. We are one to three in this country, and we have alwars beaten our enemies in this proportion. We think that history re- peats itself. "The French-Canadian is peaceful and generous, enough not to falter before the threats 01 ignor- ant fanaticism." L What does the greatest of living Qanadians say Speaking at a re- cruiting meeting in Sherbrooke a few days ago, Sir Wilfrid Laurier gave utterance ,to the following "I affirm it with all my power, that it is the duty of Canada to .give to Great Britain in this war all the assistance that is in the power of My confidence iu the present Government at Ottawa does not ooze from the soles of my boots, hut at the outbreak of the war I considered it my duty to sup- port it in its. war policy. I have .supported it in that .piI Icy ever since, and I will support it again. The reason is that this war is a contest between German institu- tions and British institutions. Bri- tish institutions mean freedom. German institutions mean despot ism. That is why we as Canadians have such a vital interest in this war." Does this great Canadian, who, when he has passed from the scene, will be acclaimed by all as one of the foremost statesmen the Dominion has produced, does he, ask, de- serve the dirty and ungenerous treat- ment being accorded him hy some of his political opponents.
