It is reported fron Lancaster that
seVera days ago the cotton crop in
that county was the nnest. for that
time of the vear. ever seen, but now
it is being rapidly injuired by a blight
of some kind, the nature of which
is puzzling to the farmers. for they
never saw anything exactly like it
before. It more closely resembles
the black rust. it is stated, than any
thing else with which the farmers
are familiar, but it has some charac
acteristics never before observed in
rust. Small black spots first appear
on the leaves of the plant, rapidly
growing larger until the leaves with
er. dry tip and fall off.
TREES PLANTED AT NIGHT.
More Likely to Live Tran if Trans
planted in the Daytime.
It was long since observed that
budding trees, when trainsplainted in
the evening, and immediately and
copiously watered, were much more
likely to thrive than those that had
been moved in the'- day. But this
knowledge did not lead to any well
defined theory on the subject until
the experiments of M. Rene Roun
nit, a French expert, proved beyond
a doubt that distinctly beneficial re
suIts could be gained by transplant
ing wholly at night.
Being called upon to transplant a
large tract toward the end of May.
1903. M. Rounault determined to
work at night, and in order to be
sure that he made no mistake he
transplanted a Holland linden, which
had been in his own nursery for five
years, at 1o o'clock at night. Hie
carefully watered the tree, and the
branches wvhich bore buds were freely
moistened. The linden did not ap
pear to suiffer from this transplanting
and continued to grow normally.
without showing any signs of weak
ness. Encouraged by this success, M.
Rounault performed the work of
transplanting entirely in the night
time. The resulhs were excellent, on
ly two trees dying, though the choice
of the species was extremely wide.
