Ftp urn by Tow United Stales Devert mint of agriculture Farmers of Delaware. Maryland. Virginia West Virginia Kentucky and Tennessee have it in their own Power to save the red Clover crop from fur ther decline and destruction in these states says a. J. Meters agronomist of the United states department of agriculture. All that is necessary is to harness the old Law the survival of the fittest and develop strains of red Clover that Are immune or highly resistant to the Anthracnose disease. Acreage decreased. The acreage in red Clover in these states has not kept Pace with the do Mamis for Hay and forage during the past 25 years. While there Are Many causes for Clever failure the one cause generally responsible in this area is Anthracnose. On limed and Fertile soils Anthracnose is almost surely the e Only cause of failure Here. There is Only one remedy says doctor pleters and that is the use of Anthracnose resistant strains. Experiments by the department As Well As observations of work done by Farmers have shown that it is entirely feasible to develop such strains. However they must be developed by selection of the resistant plants in ileitis where the disease is consistently very severe. At present there seems to be Only one known resistant Strain the one developed by the Tennessee Experiment station several years ago but not much seed is yet available. Save resistant seed. There is reason to believe that some Clover now growing in this infected area is resistant. It should be located and saved for future seeding. When a Field is Beverly attacked the plants surviving will Likely be somewhat resistant. In such cases it May seem that the Field is worthless to Cut for seed but it is at just such times that nature has pointed out the resistant plants. By following this practice year after year until All susceptible plants have been eliminated by the disease and Only resistant ones remain it will be possible to develop strains that Are much Superior for local needs than any now it existence. 1-Fine arts building of Chicago worlds fair which will endowed by Julius Lios Enwald. -2-president Coolidge Greet lab to a Poi session at til in Pine Camps or.

Sulph Hur Lime As summer fungicide for peaches the new Jersey agricultural Experiment station is still recommending dry mix Sulphur Lime As a summer fungicide for peaches for the control of Scab and Brown rot. Four pounds of High Calcium Lime should be added to every 50 Gallons of s-4-50 dry mix used in combination with Lead arsenate in order to avoid Arsenical injury. Growers making their own dry mix should use eight pounds of Lime with every eight pounds of Sulphur when preparing mixtures to be used in combination with Lead arsenate. It is also recommended that the amount of Lead arsenate be limited to one Pound of the powdered to if to 50 Gallons of Spray mixture. Special care should be exercised in measuring or weighing Lead arsenate since More than the recommended amount May cause serious injury to twigs and foliage. We have never had any serious difficulty with dry mix so far As staining the fruit is concerned says a writer in the Rural new yorker. As a matter of fact the fruit staining caused by dry mix is much less than that caused by self boiled Lime Sulphur. Copper Carbonate found not a virulent Poison an Experiment was recently carried on at the South Dakota state agricultural station to obtain direct evidence whether wheat and other Grain treated with Copper Carbonate was poisonous or harmful to animals. Laying hens were fed exclusively i for two weeks on wheat which had i previously been treated with Copper Carbonate and these fowls were in As Good condition throughout the period As similar Birds fed exclusively on untreated wheat. The results May be regarded As a hit of direct evidence indicating that Copper Carbonate is at least not a virulent Poison.

P1ckard mexican catholics Are now seeking a Compromise of their con i Troverso with the government. The episcopal committee made up of Orch Bishops Ami Bishops last week pre a seated to president Calles a petition for suspension of the religious Laws j pending constitutional Reform so that worship education and Charity May from now on enjoy due the committee denies that the priests were rebellious in suspending Public worship in the churches and says they have Given proof of their respect for the Law As far As their consciences permit. The petition continues we answer the charge of not having petitioned for Reform of the Constitution by stating that the governors for one reason or another did not enforce the objectionable clauses so we Are not called upon to demand a repeal of the clauses which were a dead letter. Similar action with regard to the Constitution of 1 17 we considered less called for since president Carranza himself Uuno Lilcik them the religious clauses As unjust and uncalled for and proposed the Reform of certain articles that Are contrary to liberties claimed by the mexican Catholic people. These were not effected because of events known. Nor did general Obregon urge compliance with the objectionable Laws. So we had no reason to object. Now animated by a most sincere patriotism desirous of a True and lusting peace we ask you to use your influence to Reform said articles effectively Ami also the penal prescriptions lately sanctioned. As a basis for tills Reform we request full Independence of Church Anil state so that the Constitution Ami organic Laws and regulations be faithfully interpreted that the state dictate no Laws prescribing any religious or legislative matters As for Exum pie the fixing of the number of priests or imposing conditions on the exercise of the ministry Etc. This is the True Conception of civil Law As observed among people faithfully respecting the Independence of spiritual and temporal Power. Accordingly we ask the following liberties to which we Are entitled As christians and citizens of a cultured nation Anil us men Liberty of conscience of thought of worship of instruction of association of press All without onerous restrictions destroying the substance of the constitutional though the Catholic authorities have repeatedly assorted that they do not countenance any revolutionary attempts the government agents say they have uncovered extensive plans for rebellion and scores of arrests were made. The one actual attempt at revolution so far was scotched by agents of the department of Justice of the United Stales when they nabbed Gen. In Roque Estrada Ami More than 150 of his followers near san Diego calif., on charges of violating the neutrality Laws. The band of insure Rector had an armoured truck machine guns rifles and lots of ammunition and was on its Way to Cross the Border. Secretary of state Kellogg calling on the president at White Pine Camp told him of his discussion with the leaders of the knights of Columbus who had presented that orders demand for intervention in the mexican dispute. Or. Coolidge and or. Kellogg were in Complete agreement that no grounds exist for such intervention or for any variation of the administration s policy of dealing with the Calles government. There has been but one specific complaint of infringement of american property rights in the Church of Brogulo and not any complaints of bodily injuries to american citizens the administration it appears has not Felt warranted in interceding to prevent the expulsion of american clerical from Mexico inasmuch As these expulsion measures have applied to All foreign clerical alike. In the controversy Over confiscatory Oil lands the president is satisfied that the mexican government Lias made Large concessions. Secretary Kellogg took occasion in a speech at Plattsburg n. V., to state the administration s attitude toward the Geneva preliminary arms limitation conference and the government cabled the full text to american diplomatic missions in a a major capitals. Dealing with published reports that the United states might withdraw from the Geneva deliberations which have been complicated by efforts of the French and other delegations to have a limitation formula which would cover Laud and sea forces aircraft mid even National economic resources and possibly Man Power or. Kellogg declared thut we Are now working to make the Geneva meeting a Success and expressed Hope that Progress towards naval limitation As Well As toward limitation of Hind armament will he made it Clear that what we desire is results but left the door open if the Geneva meeting should adjourn without constructive action looking toward reduction of military burdens for the Washington government to initiate n conference among great naval Powers with a View to extending the scope of the Washington limitation agreements. Ret another result of or. Kel-1 Logg s conference with the president was the decision to ask the Canadian government to receive american of Licals for discussion of a plan whereby the Supply of Bootleg liquor from Canadian sources can be completely shut off. The proposed agreement would permit american prohibition forces to arrest liquor smugglers wherever smuggling was attempted. It was Given out that the president was determined that National prohibition being the Law should be enforced 10 the limit of the government s Power. Gen. L. C. Andrews has been persuaded to continue in Olliee at least until the present Congress ends. He believes tile agreement he negotiated with the British will Stop the smuggling of liquor from British possessions and he expects Congress to Amend the volstead act so the diver a Sion of Industrial alcohol to beverage purposes can be prevented.

Pol cake s government in Franco of which ambassador her Lek Home on vacation Speaks most optimistically is putting into effect its retrenchment program the first step being to Cut Down the wheat importations to the extent of 28,000,000 bushels the ensuing year.
