for fifty cents for one fourth of an apple piefor said he Any count y which hascities whose inhab itants have the nerve to charge such prices will some day be a great corn try toTruly was his prophec correct Leaving our old Ken tucky home on the morning of June 25th we traveled almost con tinuousally at a high rate of speed until 8 oclock P M the 27th when we arrived at Denser whert we were to spend a few days with our relatives Atty any Mrs Chas R Brock We had read and heard much of Denver and had pictured it in our mind as the garden spot of the world where money grew on the trees and its people lived forever But little did this beauti ful city with its 180000 population fall short of our expectations With its beautiful streets lawns and parks its towering business and of fice buildings its handsome resi dences its large enterprises and wealth its exhilarating breezes its magnificent scenery especially that afforded by the snow capped peaks of the Rockies which rise in the distance and the beautiful sun set the richness and splendor of which the most skilled artist would not attempt to reproduce seems that it should make italmosta verti able paradise for the habitation of man We found no money on trees but there is employment for unIliketreme poverty is confined to a comparatively few but on the other hand the laboring classes have comfortable quarters and all the other necessary comforts of life It is there that the lungers or bug gy classes using an expression of the natives find a fountain of healthtThere are many things 01 inter est in and about the city of Denver but during our short story of only two weeks we were able to visit only a very few One of the two side trips which we took and which is a special attraction to all tourist who go there was over the famous Georgetown loop of the Colorado Southern railroad Of the four loops in the world this is said to be the most famous one and no visit to Colorado is com plete without this trip At Silver Plume the terminus of this division of the C S R R and four miles from the loop are the silver mines of the Dives Pelican and SevenThirty Mining Co of which Mr Joseph H Eaton a son of Di Eaton the noted Baptist preacher of Louis ville and editor of the Western Re corder is general manager Through the courtesy of Mr Eaton we were shown through the mines seeing the miners at work 2500 feet back in the mountains After passing through the mines we next visited the Concentration mill It is at this mill that the different ores are separated from the quartz before shipping to the smelter when in the natural stage the value per ton Jails below a certain amount The richer ores which assay a sufficient amount to ustify it are shipped direct to the smelter From the smelter the ore goes to the refinery and then ready for use The smel ters are located at Denver but since the refinery was closed down two years ago all metals have to be sent either to Omaha or Philadelphia be refined Not only is the Sate of Colorado rich in silver goldand other metals but also in fine build ing stone granite and marble and where irrigation has been effected agriculture has become a valaable occupation Our next trip of special interest IE was over the Moffat route to Arrow Head a line being built from Denver to Salt Lake City the purpose being to extend it on to the Pacific coast This is beyond question one of the most senic and picturesque routes in all the West II and a trip that every visitor to the West should take advantage 01 Just before reaching Arrow Head the road passes over the Continent il divide at an elevation of 11660 feet This is conceded to be one of the most wonderful pieces of en gineering ever perfected the ele vation of the road not being more than two per cent at any point vet it seems to climb right up the mountain side There are many Kentuckians in Denver and those whom it was our ileasure to see while there are dong well Chas R Brock is enjoy nga splendid law practice Elmer Brock has a lucrative position with the Colorado Telephone Co W R Ramsey the London lawyer is Assistant Attorney General of the State and through his kindness we were shown through the State House from the basement to the dome a building which cost over 53000000 and built exclusively f materials produced in the State Dr Russell Ramsey also a former citizen of London is doing well in the practice of medicine Before closing this little article we wish to say something of the country through which we passed on our journey To St Lou is the trip was made via of the old reliable L N and L H St L railroads passing through the Southwest corner of Indiana and the entire width of the State of Ill inois This is the great agricultur al section of both States and while our trip was made at night yet we were informed by citizens of differ ent sections that crps never looked better Leaving St Louis the trip was made by way of the Missouri Racific railroad a distance of 1023 miles covered in a little more than twentyfour hours From the rug ged hills and rich river bottoms of Missouri to the large wheat fields and barren prairies of Kansas we saw it all A stop of one and a half Lhours at Kansas City was enough to reveal to us that itis a city of push and hustle the gate way to the greatSouthwest From Pueblo to Denver sightseeing be came more interesting viewing the wonderful formation of Rockies as seen from the Denver Rio Grande trains The Vest is certainly the home of thrift and plenty- E S A POLITICS AND POLITICIANS John D White known as tht Crested Jayhawker yesterday

Pages 1 to 4 BRIDE AT SHIPS HELM MRS G W ROBINSON ASSISTS HER HUSBAND IN DARING OCEAN RACE TwentyEieht Foot Yacht Braves Dangers of Gulf Stream and Treach erous Waves Off Cape Hatteras Winner Received 500 Lipton Cup After a daring ocean race of 650 miles the sloop Gauntlet with Mrs Thora Lund Robinson at the wheel finished second in the contest for which Sir Thomas Lipton offered a 500 cup The course of the race ex tended from Gravesend Bay New York Harbor to Bermuda Mrs Robinson is the two months bride of George W Robinson the owner of the boat It was a daring race for each of the three small yachts that competed but more so for the Gauntlet because she was the smallest of them all being only 28 yawlTamerlanefeet long and the yawl Lila 39 feet BrooltlynYachtboats were at the mercy of wind and wave so much so that the yawl Lila was compelled to put into Norfolk har bor to save itself from destruction while the smaller yacht bravely stuck to its task They had to cross the gulf stream 150 miles off Hatteras one of the stormiest spots on the Atlantic Experienced yachtsmen were much surprised that the little Gauntlet was not wrecked or foundered somewhere on the way BUT TWENTY YEARS OLJ Mrs Robinson Is only 20 years old but ever since childhood she has been used to boating and swimming For eighteenfootmer headquarters near Amboy on the lower New York bay Though small she Is athletic and skilled in handling a craft and Is said to be without fear on the water Storm or sunshine is all the same to her One of the conditions of our mar riage on April 17th said Mrs Robin son before starting in the race was Georgetried keephisthe chief mate and bottle washer If you will of the Gauntlet I have an Idea that I may superintend things before Lget throughIed a knockabout for years In the lower bay I learned to swim because I was capsized so many times that I had to learnMr Robinson and myself are to stand watch together while J L Dun lap and H Higgins the remainder of the Corinthian crew will alternate in seeping watch Steer Why you dont suppose Im going to be a passenger I can and am going to do everything that a good navigator must do STUMPED PROFESSIONAL SALTS Professional sailors stood aghast at the courage of the Corinthian tars in undertaking such a perilous voyage Disaster was predicted from the first The yawl Lila lost her mainmast shortly after the start outside Sandy Hook and had to put back for a new spar which was immediately prepared to permit her to restart the following Tuesday The Tamerlanes navigator seeing the Lllas plight decided that it would be an unfair advantage to con tinue in the race and she too put back The people of the littl Gauntlet did not see the accident to the Lila it is supposed for the sloop kept right on in her seasmashing trip to Bermuda The three yachts that contemplated Brooklyndock preparingthemthe little Gau set Mrs Thora Lund Robinson was as busy as the rest mak ing things shipshape about the boat Until the day before the race no one took seriously her statement that she proposed to accompany the yacht and it was with consternation that the regatta committee learned that she meant to go Refusal to permit her to start threatened to disqualify the boat and all appeals were in vain At last the committee yielded and permitted her to start The Tamerlane finished the course at Hamilton Bermuda at 3 oclock Tune 3rd while the Gauntlet did not arrive until 24 hours later The result was in doubt until the finish of this tiny boat as the Tamerlane had to al low it 16 hours and 10 minutes owing to the difference in their lengths Thomas Jeffersons Bible The Jefferson Bible with Its beauti ful red Morocco binding made no little trouble in the House while it was a single forgotten volume reposing under lock and key at the Smithsonian Insti tution Now that it has been photographed and reproduced in numerous copies the little volume has multiplied care for the Senate Hardly a man of the ninety but has had thousands of requests for the book and more are comin r in hv every mail It seems that some enterprising busi ness man advertised the Jefferson Bible prominently in a wellknown magazine He announced that it could be had for nothing if one would write to ones Senator or Member of Con gress concluding his advertisement with the further statement that he had gone to considerable expense in having the advertisement printed and hoped readers would turn to his business an nouncement on another page So it Is that requests are rolling in publicthey are more legitimate prey than gentlemen at the other end of the Capitol Each Senators quota is but thirty copies and the only good way out of the dilemma appears to be to print more just as Congress has done popularreprintisy Who For Next

to be earned by a willing laboring man In the great city of Chicago And after many argu ments and much discussion he had prevailed upon his father and Ona the sweet blithsome lass to whom he was betrothed and her mother and several children and relatives to emigrate to splendid America where a man may not always remain a peasant but where he has a chance to Imorove him self and rise In the world Ten dollars a week was an unheard of fortune The peasants of Europe make a few cents a day So they all went to Packlngtown and the first day that Jurgis stood In line being altogether the finest specimen of a man In the yards he was beckon ed to by the boss and given a fob He went home jubilant Two other mem bers of the family one a great strap- pIng woman also got jobs at once Jurgis laughed

were turned out and the house resold the first month they failed of payment what a different history woud have been told by the author What If the great packing trust in stead of killing men and women should provide that its employes could live on an acre of ground each or a half acre out on the great fertile prairies of Illinois quickly reached from the stockyards by a modern trolley so that when they were of necessity perhaps laid off for a period of a week or six weeks or on half time they would have a piece of rich land which they could till and raise enough potatoes and corn and beans and cabbage to keep them from starving to death But the packing trustMr Ogden Armour and other millionaires and multimillion aireswould make less money it would decrease its dividends perhaps several per

to speed a maR up to the wrecking point and then get new men This process of trafficking In human life coupled with the abominable and poisonous adulterations and use of diseased animals which Mr

described by the Times as- a simple little story one that happens day after day In a room of the big immigration building with its desk and its blue coated official an Italian workman walks excitedly up and down His clothes are cheap and poor but they are plainly not his working garb and a bright holiday handkerchief is knotted about his throat His eyes are keen and expectant Evidently it is a great day for him It needs little encouragement from the goodnatured officer to bring out the whole story A big Mediterranean steamer is just landing its steerage passengers Luigi as he peers through the gates at the incoming crowd is almost beside him self with delight- I waita three year he explains breathlessly I worka verra hard and 1 sava de money to bring to me my Maria and my two little

kind but his words are terrible It appears that the little wife does notcome up to the requirements She is not healthy She has no money and Luigi has only that 9 a week It is not enough to support a

Benefit or Detriment to the Farmer and the Country Generally Chicago is to have the greatest build ing the world ever constructed forcora mercial purposes It will have a floor space of 50 acresa good sized farm It is to be 10 stories high including the basement and were it to be all stretched out on one floor it would cover 13 of the big city blocks in the windy city It will be 900 feet in length and 270 feet wide and will be built of steel and concrete The cost will be 2500000 The present building occupied by Mongomery Ward and Com pany is a huge affair but is stated to be entirely inadequate to the needs of this enormous mail order house and so this new pile is to be constructed- It seems to be the time of big com merical houses in the great centers of the country Another big firm is to erect a building on Chicago avenue which will contain a million square feet200 feet by 800 feet Sears Roe buck and Company is a big Chicago business rival of the Montgomery Ward firm and has just also been incorpor ated to do business in New York with a capitalization of 40000000 paying the State incorporation tax of 20000 TO BE PKOUD OF These are fine projects and at first thought may make one proud of Amer ican business institutions but what is the real effect of the success of these gigantic commerical houses upon the countrys prosperity How does their business affect the country merchant the country banker the country town Itself and in fact the country people who are the patrons of the great mail order houses What creates the village the town the thriving city What keeps it a live and bustling center ra ther than a dead congregation of a few houses with one or two miserable stores It Is the patronage and sup port is it not of the surrounding coun try homes Towns Ire buit up only when they have support from an agri cultural territory if agriculture is the surrounding industry which is the case in nine out of ten instances But conversely the richness of the soil alone does not make the most valuable farms THE MARKET FOR PRODICTS There must be a good market for the farm product if the farm is adjacent to a live growing town supporting ac and IeItivebe a dead one he will have to turn elsewhere to dispose of his products and perhaps incur heavy transporta tion charges In their shipment This fact Is set forth unmistakably in the last census figures which show that in a small area of te United States the disIover percent of the United Statesthe value of the farm lands Is over half that of all of the arable land in the entire country The farms In these regions are located close to the factories which afford a profitable home market A HUGE CHICAGO MAILORDER STORE TO BE DESERTED FOR LACK OF ROOM tor all the agricultural products So that the greatest factor in land value Is the nearness to good markets It becomes plain therefore that the bet ter the home town can be made the more valuable is the farm land trIbu- tary to it In the purely agricultural sections the average country town is located In the center of from 75 to 150 square miles of territory that is the town Is supported by the trade result Ing from that area of farms Accord ing to federal statistics the average farmer spends 627 a year for supplies clothing for his family household utensils food that he does not grow himself farm implements etc t Now It must be evident that if a plan 4cc to be followed looking to the greatest good for the greatest number the farms of each agricultural area surrounding a town should support that town to their uttermost KEEP THE MONEY AT HOME Every dollar that the farmer spends in the town indirectly comes back to him in the way of benefits The town grows it supports better stores more churches better schools to which he can send his children furnishes bet ter nearathand markets for his products and finally increases the very value of his farm land As a good il lustration the Dry Goods Reporter as sumes that such an agricultural town has a population of 1000 its support coming from the country tributary to it The life of the town is its retail purchasingnecessity grow rapidly But Mont gomery Ward and Co Sears Roebuck and Co and others of the enormous greatfourSupposethatyear in his home town each farmer in the community diverts 50 per cent of his trade from his town and sends 300 a year to the catalogue houses it means that half of the business of the town is gone On the basis of one hundred or one hundred and fifty square miles of territory to support the town it can be estimated that there are five hundred farmers in the district Three hundred dollars a year in trade from each of the farmers means that one hundred and fifty thousand dollars annually is taken from the home town EARTH In the course of ten years this means one and onehalf million dollars Aver aging the profit on this amount at twenty per cent it means aat in ten years time three hundred thousand dollars profits are taken from the town Now on the other hand should the farmer instead of sending away his goodshehome town its business would be im mediately doubled and with twice the employment for the people Year af ter year the profits made by the mer chants would be retained in the town would seek investment in starting new industries and at the end of the ten year period instead of a town of one thousand there would be a lively city of from two to three thousand and every acre of farm land within the trade radius of the town would be en hanced in value from ten to twenty dollars ENRICHING THE BIG CITIES theIindividualhalf his trade to Chicago New York or some other foreign city In the course of ten years would send away three thousand dollars If it were possible that he could save ten per cent on this amount in ten years time he would save three hundred dollars His vnh compensation would be a dead hometown poor schools a poor home mar ket and no increase in the value of his realestate holdings On the other hand by giving his patronage to the home town even though he must pay the merchant ten per cent more than the foreign house the result would be like this On ac count of Increase In farm values one hundred and sixty acres of land worth ten dollars more per acre sixteen hun dred dollars or thirteen hundred dol lars better off in ten years than if he gave half his patronage to the foreign concern His home town Is a lively one all public improvements all mod ern conveniences high schools to which he could send his children cheaply good churches good roads and everything that can add to the corny fort and happiness of its residents and those who reside near it Not withstanding that the farmers land is enhanced in value his taxation will be but little greater as the business inter ests of the town will pay the burden of taxation and the amount of each taxpayer will be less in proportion to carry on government- IS TilE SAVING A REAL ONE While the country household in looking over one of the big catalogues and sending an order for 50 worth of goods may be able to figure out an immediate saving of five or six dollars even after they have paid the freight there is no question as to the final out come if the practice is persisted in by all the people of any particular local ity The home town will suffer the home market will fail to increase if it does not decrease as will also the value x f the farm lands Undoubtedly the catalogue houses can sell goods cheaper than the average country store for they do a cash business you send on your cash with yorr order There is no risk in the cata logue or mail order house business Possibly if you arranged to do business on the same basis with your country merchantcash down with your pur chaseyou could get almost as favor able prices But the country merchant is supposed to extend credit to every one he has bad bills which Le never collects and consequently must make a greater percentage of profit on the things he sells Every community which is imbued with the spirit of building up its own industries and of supporting its home town with local pride is sure to be the most prosperous there can be no gain saying this fact THE HOME GARDEN The Story of the Boy and His Little Plot of Ground At the age of five every boy is by instinct a gardener If guided by op portunity example and intelligent rection he will dig plant and develop an interest in growing things lacking these the call of mother nature leads to mud pies Given a square yard of mellow ground a tiny hoe and a hand ful of beans a healthy five yearold boy will have a combination that ex cels anything yet designed in nature stud v From five to ten the world begins to dawn He looks up and out he sees and imitates but does not reason He should play without hindrance If the square yard of ground be enlarged to a rod the handful of beans to a collec tion of seeds the kinds for sale in the grocery stores are best as these have brilliantly colored pictures on the pack ages and the boy learns thereby what manner of a thing he is to expect this square rod will be the play ground to a surprising extent He may not plant the kinds you expect or want him to plant as his view point is different from yours It is un wise to Insist on any given plan Let this garden be his own If It has been entirely to carrots or cabbage let it remain carrots and cabbage for they are more to him than your choice variety It is unwise to expect careful pains GETTING ACQUAINTED WITH MOTHER taking effort and constant care from a boy of this age encourage it but do not compel it He can be taught by example all of the needs of plant growth but his hoe ing and weeding may be superficial If you ask him he will allow you to dig in his garden to loosen the soil deeper than his strength permits It is wise to do this for tnere must be carrots and cabbage to harvest or there will be no play ground here next year If the boy of five has been allowed the run of a garden if at eight he has a garden of his own at ten he will love gardening and will have absorbed an amazing store of knowledge and to him may be imparted at this age in a way and manner that will awaken the the purest and best that is In him the mystery of life A pumpkin plant on a compost heap sending its vigorous shoots over the weeds climbing where it cannot creep trusting its snake like head through the garden fence is a thing of wonder to a boy if he is but taught to see it and when its great golden blossoms appear there is a still greater wonder twelve and fourteen may de sert the garden for the ball field or theI fishing rod and it is well they for the serious time of life is coming soon and play days should be as many and long as school and home duties will permit But a garden for a boy at this age may be a greater factor in his training for life than at any other for by this time the root of nil evil has entered his soul he has learned that money is essential in order to procure the many things a boy must have and the garden which to this time has been a recreation field a place of won derful possibilities In the way of good things to eat and pumpkins for Jacko lanterns may be a most fertile field of revenue Whatever the crop the proceeds should be wholly his own If he has produced the crop wholly by his own efforts There Is but one way that he can learn the value of money and that is by earning It The wise use of money must also be learned but that Is outside the sphere of gardening From address of Prof Cranefleld Wise Agr College BE A HOMECROFTER Learn by Doing Work

organizations of society But today one can make a specially strong argument that great and radical changes are im pending No one can believe that existing conditions will continue in a world where all things move and change Waste extravagance political corruption fierce mercantile rivalries colossal monopolization of wealth and of the industrial plants of the world masses of dreary poverty these are natural subjects for profound patri otic and humane concern Is not the old social and industrial machinery the competitive or wage system showing signs of breaking down beneath its question is quite fair whether any system is just that permits individuals to roll up immense fortunes as the result of lucky speculations or of the rise of land values about a great city that permits other individuals to inherit almost unlimited money power as men once inherited duchies and kingdoms while millions of workingmen with small wages live close to the danger line of debt or even of cold and starvation and are liable to be thrown out of employment for months at in the face of natural wealth never so abundant and forces of pro duction augmented indefinitely by science and invention so many almost fail to reap any benefit from the re sources which surely belong to the race it must at least be confessed that our present system both of production and of distribution is not intelligently or humanely managed Its results do not represent an ideal democracy a brotherhood of manFrom The Coming People by Chas F Dole It behooves everyone who has eyes to see and ears to hear and a brain with which to think to study the tremendous social problems with which we are face to face today Whether they are settled right or wrong will affect every member of the community No one can escape the

limbs and swift grace of a boy His face how ever was tanned of a dull yellow tint and the little beard which he wore was streaked and shot with gray His features were small delicate and regular with clearcut curving nose and eyes which jutted forward from the lids His dress was simple and yet spruce A gold embroidered belt encircled his loins with theargentclasp So stood upon the Avon and talked

are Insects and plant diseases He can by a proper rotation of crops and fertilization convert a poor into a rich soil and he can stimulate plant growth by plenty of fertilization By the same process he can keep down the weeds which rob his crops of nourishment and moisture He can to a great extent overcome with but little trouble all the various smaller hin drances to crop growingall but the bugs and the blight These twain are hard to handle None is so arrogant as to profess indifferent to their at tacks Not many years ago they were expected not the less dreaded especially the blights and the rots and the mildews they were the natural visita tions of providence There was no use trying to combat them If they came they came The farmer prayed that they might not come that earlNow science has shown us that can in most cases be overcome If not overcome they can be prevented Yet the process is often fraught with great trouble and expense to the suppose a man could develop a strain of plants so hardy that blights and rust would pass them by In disgust and so bitter and unsavory for a bug that the Jiymcnoptera the coleoptera and the other toughs of the insect trust would pass by and prefer to eat oak and hickory leaves It would be a cinch for that man would it not He could sit in the shade and hire myrmidons to do his work directing those close at hand in person and those at a distance by telephone Such a condition may be possible The man who gets in first would be the one to sit in the shade and reap the advantage Eventually we would all get on to the scheme and unless the population of the world Increased with accelerated rapidity there would be an overproduction of food products and prices would eventu ally get back to their present level so that we would all have to work Department of Agriculture and some of the experiment stations have been working along this line of se lecting resistant plants with the Idea of at least giving the enterprising American farmer a good big start In the aggregate enormous crop losses millions and millions are caused by the attacks of insects and plant diseases In dry weather In sects are particularly abundant and In eit weather plant diseases flour JACKSON COTTON ON LEFT DRAKE ON to Wilt Ish while in average weather both do the best they can to gather the crop ahead of the farmer Many plant dis eases and insects can be controlled by the various poisons sprays and cul tural methods already discovered but for someas for example the rust of wheat peach yellows cloverseed fly etc satisfactory remedies have not yet been discovered Some Instances may be cited to show Just what is meant by resistant or im mune varieties and their value Grapes furnish a striking example Euro pean grapes planted in country fail wherever the American graperoot louse Is present because the louse is able to attack and destroy the roots of these varieties The roots of na tive American grapes are also attacked by the same louse but are so hard and wiry that the louse can not destroy them In other words they are resistant The unusual resistance of the Kelf fer pear to blight has made it pos sible to grow this pear in the South ern States most other varieties fail because of blight The va riety of cowpea known as Little Iron has proved so resistant to wilt disease that in some fields it has survived when all other varieties have been killed American gooseberries are but little the mildew which seriously affects the larger English vas rieties when grown here With nearly every crop grown some of its varieties are more resistant or immune to some disease or insect attack than varieties of the same plant are but little affected by a disease while others are badly Injured Va rlatlons in this respect also extend to Individual plants of a given variety These facts have been utilized to tome extent in the origination of the TariouB socalled diseaseproof va reties which have been introduced Into cultureas for example the rustproof varieties of wheat oats etc As a rule however these varieties have not been developed by any systematic scientific methods of se tefition and breeding and although a rv pliow merit most of them have ot measured up to the claims made r them Tliey taro however served thethoughtas well in the direction of the de velopment of diseaseresistant varieties proveofPOTATOES During recent years the disease re sistance of potatoes especially has re ceived attention by several of the agricultural experiment stations in the ofMainelIinnesota IndustrytheVermont similarperience of practical growers Sum marizing the results Professor Jones draws the following tentative con resistance in potatoes is relative not absolute no variety lateblight thereforecultural and developmental conditions oftheoriginating new varieties from seed especially of hybrid origin Not all seedlings show superior disease re sistance Early varieties may escape the dis ease by maturing before it becomes exposedtheylate varieties The source of seed tubers is a mat ter of importance northerngrown seed giving plants the superior disease resistance in Europe Seed from a crop that was not too highly fertilized is probably preferable Possibly tubers are better for seed purposes if dug before they reach full maturity High fertilization especially with nitro genous manures lowers the power of the plant to resist both blight and rotSo far as skin characteristics are an index the red varieties with thick and rough skin seem more resistant as a class than the thinskinned white varieties So far as stem and foliage characters are concerned the evi dence favors the stem that Is hard rough and rather woody at the base and the leaf that is small somewhat to disease re coloredI at some notably in THE THE RIGHT Comparative Resistance Disease this where Vermont where experiments in breed ing and selection for increased resistance are under way These results have been correlated with information recently secured by a circular of In quiry addressed to a large number of potato specialists in the Northeastern States and in Canada From these it appears that a wide variation is shown in disease resistance among the varieties now in cultivation in America but that no one variety is preeminent Among those which have been widely tested the following deserve mention as of the resistant class Dakoto Red Rustproof Irish Cobbler Sir Walter Raleigh Doe Pride and White BeautyIn made at the Vermont sta tion in 1905 the following varieties Roots of Iron Cowpea Resistant to Root Knot showed marked resistance to blight on both sandy loam and clay loam soils Keeper American Wonder Dakoto BlightlessVarieties of growth moderately branched with firm hairy mediumsized leaves are much more likely to prove resistant to largeI smooth flabby leaves and decumbent stems The evidence at hand seems to justify the hope that the combined ef forts of potato specialists working from both the practical and the scien tific standpoints may soon result in the development of varieties of pota toes combining general excellence with a high degree of disease resistance CANTALOUPES A recent bulletin of the Colorado Station reports the discovery by a local grower of a rustresisting canta loupe which promises to be of im mense value to the Rockyford canta loupe industry In this case seed of the Rockyford variety was purchased from five different seedsmen They were planted and cultivated under sim ilar conditions When rust attacked the field just before the melons began to ripen it developed rapidly and soon destroyed all the vines except those Taylor IRON VS AND to Wilt and Hoot Knot grown from the seed of one seedsman Many of the hills from this strain of greenthroughouta good crop of melons observations in the muskmelon fields of that neighborhood also showed that wherever this strain of Rockyford seed had been used many hills were unaffected with rust while with other of seed of the same variety the vines were all dead The investigator selected a quantity of seed from the rustresistant hills and planted them in comparison with ordinary seed On the rustresisting hills the melons were hidden under a healthy growth of vines and were large solidly netted with thick firm flesh small seed cavity filled with seed On the rusted hills the plants were almost devoid of leaves prematurelylarge seed cavity and practically of no market value In tracing back the history of this Strain of seed it was found that some years before a seedsman had saved the first lot from a single healthy melon taken from a field of rusted vines It had therefore been developed by the simple process of saving seed from the best melons produced by plants which withstood attacks of rust when surrounding plants were destroyed by this disease What was thus accom plished by one farmer with one crop can probably be accomplished by other with the same or with other crops If they will be alert while the crops are growing to select and mark individual plants which show exceptional merit along the lines of pro lific yield early maturity resistance to disease or other desirable quality and save seed separately from the plant showing such qualities Marked va- rIations which may be profitably util ized in this way are constantly occurring and are plainly evident on all point to be emphasized is that improvements in farm crop varieties nearly always trace back to individual plants No one is in better position to notice these exceptional plants than the farmer He is in his fields gar den or orchard every day where these exceptional plants are produced If one plant in a rustinfected wheat field stands up green and free from the disease that is a plant to save seed from as the basis of a rustre sistant strain If one hill of pota toes in a blighted field remains unaf fected by disease seed from that hill may produce a blightresistant variety If a squash punt is found that is distasteful to the squash bug seed from that hill may produce squash vines which the bugs will not molest The Important fact is that some plants are much more resistant to dis ease and insect attacks than others It Is a question of seeing the resistant Roots of Wonderful Cowpea Attacked by Root Knot plant and propagating from it The farmer has as great opportunity for going this as the seedsman
