Borne positive results announced in by Gard to Cucumber planting. Quot experiments and observations on some diseases of plants quot is the title of a bulletin issued by the station at Geneva. Most of tie results obtained in the experiments Are negative but they Are none the less valuable As they How that certain popular beliefs Are without foundation. Ploughing under Green Rye by some thought to be a preventive of potato Scab was found to be useless if indeed it did not increase the amount of Scab and decrease the yield. Potato Stem blight was not communicated to the growing crop when diseased tubers were planted thus confirming the opinion that the affection is physiological in character and not due to fungi or bacteria. It solution either As a Spray or applied directly to the soil in which carnations were Grovv Irig proved utterly powerless to prevent or cure Carnation rust and in Strong solutions at least a was injurious to the plants instead of promoting their growth As Many car a zionists believe it will do. The positive results announced in the bulletin Are in connection with Cucumber culture and relate to the exceedingly beneficial results obtained by spraying the vines with Bordeaux mixture. Last season Vas a most unfavourable one for cucumbers As All the enemies seemed to Combine for the destruction of the crop yet by thorough praying Good yields of both Early salad cucumbers and late quot pickles quot a were secured on the station expert mental plats on Long Island. With decay. It is the great equalizer Ana Harmonizer. It increases the water holding Power of Sandy or porous soils by occupying the spaces Between the soil particles. It separates the Fine particles in Silt and Clay soils that tend to a Range themselves too closely separate Grain Structure giving a sponge like character to the soil so that water moves through it with More Freedom. It equalizes the temperatures of the soil making it warmer in the Winter and Early Spring and cooler in the summer. A soil deficient in humus has a higher summer temperature holds less water and yields it to the air much More rapidly than a soil Rich in humus. The farms of Nebraska and Kansas that have been robbed of humus longest by continual cropping without returning any organic matter to the soil Are beginning to show unmistakable sings of fatigue. Crops succumb More readily when the periods Between showers Are prolonged. The soil must be better fed and made More drouth resistant and less liable to blow by applying stable manure ploughing under Green crops and growing crops in rotation in which Clover the great soil renovator should have a prominent place. It is Only necessary to Call attention to the greater resistance to Adverse conditions in soils under cultivation less than ten years than in those of name formation that have been cropped Jon tenuously for Twenty five or More rears to appreciate the great value of humus to the soil. Humus promotes a higher moisture Content a better movement of the water in the soil a lower temperature in Midsummer Days a better air circus petion promotes also that Harmony Between the three soil workmen water heat and air which it is so important to secure that All things May work together for a plenteous Harvest. Could t afford it Salt As a fertilizer. _ sodium Chloride or common Salt Early cucumbers spraying increased the supplies no special ingredients of Plant yield at the rate of 30,450 fruits or 12,405 pounds per acre a gain of 75 per cent in number of fruits or almost 100 per cent in weight. To Chow what results might be expected if entire Fields were sprayed an exact acre in a Meadow was ploughed up and planted to late Cucumber and the entire plat sprayed thoroughly eight times Between july 22 and september 20. The acre yielded 57,110 Large quot pickles quot and 44,850 quot gherkins quot a total of 101,960 fruits which bold for 126.25. As the aver ago yield of cucumbers on Long Island during 1896 Vas less than 20,000 fruits and decidedly less during 1897, the great Benefit from spraying can be easily seen. This thorough spraying of an entire Field wholly prevented both of downy mildew and Anthracnose. From the experiments of the season it seems certain that spraying of cucumbers for prevention of these diseases need not be begun before july 15. one sufficiently interested May write to the Stattin and obtain free a copy of this bulletin and be placed upon the mailing list for others issued by the station. Food yet it May at times help to set tree some important ingredients. On plants of the cabbage tribe it seems to have a very beneficial effect while on potatoes it has been found to be deleterious lessening the percentage of starch and thereby decreasing the Cash Orchards. 1 grass less Orchards Are too common.

There was something Noble in her resignation. I advertised Joe got other papers to copy and we rounded him up. One morning there was a ten gallon Keg of Moonshine whisky at my Kitchen door and i did not advertise for an promotion by Purchase a famous Orchard an Orchard of seventy five Tresaa which have been bearing for More than sixty years on the farm of Henry Davidson near quot Whitesville ind., has for the last five years yielded a better Quality of fruit and More of it Thau it did a score of years ago. Palestine grown oranges vere exported last year from the Jerusalem consular District to the extent of 290,-000 boxes mostly to the United states. The Peerless Prince a new occupation for tail men. Any very tall thin Man with an angular cast of countenance now acting As a Volunteer in the army of the unemployed can get a More lucrative Job in any one of a Hundred places in new York provided he is Well Over six feet in height. Almost any of the Small clothing firms will take him dress him up As Uncle Sam affix a Beard to his lower jaw and Start him out in business As a walking advertisement. According to his natural physical adaptability to the part he can make from $1 to ?3 per Day and there is one personification of the National Type now parading the streets who is said to get $5 per Day and he certainly earns it if suitability for the part is the criterion. Although clothing firms chiefly affect this style of advertising other lines of business have adopted it and one nationally resplendent Yankee carries a fireworks advertising Banner another bears aloft the announcement of a bargain Sale in flags while others Parade for soap Patent foods and sporting goods. It is even said that one firm has runners out along the bowery and eighth Avenue in the lodging House districts with orders to capture and convey to port any and All persons of the proper build holding them up with broadsides of inducements if necessary. In the course of time it May be that there May be Battles Over the prizes in the streets and the police courts May adjudicate upon rival captors of the eagerly sought models of Uncle Sam. Juist among tho so visors in Coli Elict with Trio spirit of tiie Mijc. Last among the survivors in conflict with the spirit of the age May be noted promotion by Purchase in the English army which retarded indefinitely the advancement of efficient officers and conspired to drop All the honors of the service into the laps of wealthy individuals of no special Talent who could afford to pay for them which Only came to an end in 1871. Under the system Merit and fitness went for nothing and so difficult was it for a Man without Money to get on in the British army that a Good officer without the wherewithal to Purchase a company might remain a lieutenant for Twenty years to be soured in All probability by seeing brother officers of less standing raised above him by the Power of Money again and again and even then Only obtain his captaincy by some unlocked for augmentation in the establishment. Strangely enough in the Navy brains and hard work were Given scope to carve out advancement at the same time that in the sister service promotion had to be bought and that at a Price frequently double the official value of the Post. While traffic in commissions was largely affected by the District in which the particular regiment was Likely to be quartered for some years ensuing the Price was almost invariably 60 per cent., or More above the Normal value of commissions As Given in the quot army list quot which Tariff in 1864 gave the i ice of commission As lieutenant colonel in the life guards or horse guards at �7,250, in the foot guards and in cavalry �4,800, while a major in the two former corps had to Fork out �5,350 for his commission in comparison Vith �3,200 exacted for the same position in the line regiments. Captain cies Cost �3,500 in the life guards and horse guards �2,050 in the foot guards and �1,800 in the cavalry and infantry of the line and lie tenancies might be purchased for �1,785 in the life guards �1,g00 in the horse guards �1,200 in the foot guards and the trifle of �700 in the less considered cavalry and infantry of the line.
