Precautions Taken to Prevent
; Spread of Two Dreaded For
eign Foes of Plant
STRAW AND STUBBLE BURNED
Experts Realize Possibility That Some
? Infested Spots May Have Escaped
Observation - Quarantine
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Indications are that the two dreaded
foreign foes of wheat, flag smut and
take-all, will not become widespread
In the United States. The United
States department of agriculture an
nounces that the two states where
these diseases appeared, Indiana and
Illinois, have taken steps that will pre
vent the spread of the diseases from
the infected fields and that should
wipe ont in a few years the infection
In fields where it exists.
Indiana officials came td the recent
hearing in Washington with adequate
safeguards already placed. Shortly
after nie hearing, Illinois established
similar safeguards. All the infected
wheat in both states is under control
and will be disinfected before any use
whatever is made of it All straw and
stubble are to be burned, threshing
machines are to be thoroughly disin
fected and no wheat is to be grown In
infected areas for several years.
But Fight le Not Over.
"Under these conditions full confi
dence is felt that neither of the dis*
cases will spread from the diseased
areas in Illinois and Indiana. That
does not mean, however, that the fight
against flag smut and take-all Is over.
It is possible that one or both of the
diseases exist this year In places where
they have not been recognized. There
is, however, no great probability that
this is true. The department of agri
culture and its co-operating agencies
have been diligently on the lookout foi
these two diseases all summer and
have found no evidences of them ex
cept In the two areas. Both flag smut
and take-all occur in Illinois and only
take-all in Indiana. The experts, how?
?rer, realize the possibility that some
infested spots 'may have escaped ob
servation and lt would not be surpris
lng if diseased fields are found eis?
where next spring.
In the meantime there will be no letup
in the work of preventing either of the
diseases from getting a real foothold
anywhere in the United States. The
'federal department ls working with
the authorities of illinois and Indiana,
giving them every possible aid. Ita
pathologists are energetically studying
'?he disease and. tte representatives are
. searching the country over to make
Good Crop of Wheat in Southern liv
certain whether or not there are other
infested areas and to see that effective
measures of control are available if
any such areas are discovered.
. Prompt State Action Prevents Quar
The co-operation of state authorities
ia essential In order to prevent hard
ship if further infestations should be
'discovered. Only the prompt action of
indiana and Illinois prevented the
placing of a quarantine against all the
wheat In those states, a measure
which would have meant hardship, not
only to all the wheat growers In the
two states, but to dealers, millers and
consumers. Even prompter state action
will be desirable if either of the dis
eases is found later to exist in any
Neither of these diseases ls likely to
find Its way into the country again
from outside sources. The department
of agriculture has established quaran
tine regulations against all the rest of
the world in which either of the dis
eases exists. No small grain can come
In for any purpose unless it has been
thoroughly sterilized with steam heat
It ls the purpose of the department,
say Its officials, to make the cleanup
of these plant plagues as thorough and
as prompt as it did the foot-and-mouth
disease of animals a few years ago.
' Depreciation of Machinery.
Did you ever think of the relation of
the farmer's bank account to the tool
shed? Machinery depreciates faster In
the weather than It does In use. The
time saved by having a rust-free Im
plement will soon pay for the shed?

Piano Prices Very High
My Pri?es Lower Than That of Others
I There is only one factory oppn in the State of New York.
j Workmen are out on a strike, and every factory has orders for more pianos than
|fe they can possibly make within the next six months.
; Tn the West conditions are somewhat better.
I have orders already on file for eighty pianos and players, and I hope to get some,
along for my trade. The highest priced upright piano I have on hand now is worth
$550.00 (Five hundred and fifty dollars). It is a Kroeger, and is a strictly high-class
piano. I have, in the past few days, received over twenty letters from the piano
factories telling of the scarcity of pianos, and declining to offer me any inducements,
or hopes of getting any instruments from them any time soon. Pianos are difficult
to obtain, and some manufacturers, and also dealers, are taking advantage of this
situation to get big prices. I give below a letter which is a sample of what piano
factories write, and gives one some insight into the condition of the piano market. I
hope to get some Carlisle Pianos in the next six weeks at four hundred dollars each, ,
and some H?ckley Pianos at four hundred and twenty-five dollars each.

Whenever you want anything in the way of a piano, either see me or write me,
or phone and I will do the very best for you I can. Letter referred to follows :

Mr. John A. Holland,
Greenwood, S. C.
Answering yours of the 14th inst., .sorry to state that we are not in a position at
this time to consider new business, as we are not able to fill the orders now booked
within the next six months. We manufacture only a strictly high-class piano, sell
ing retail from $750.00 up, for regular uprights.
Thanking you for the inquiry, we beg to remain,
(Signed) Julius Bauer & Co.
Any one that is acquainted with the piano market and with my prices knows that
I sell the same quality of instrument much lower than is generally the case.
I shall be pleased to serve you at any time.
