* CORN EAR ROT. *

* tIele 20. *
During the past two years there
seems to have been a gradual increase
in the amount of damage or rotten
corn in the fields throughout the~
State. Investigations started last fall
and continued this summer show that
the large majority of this trouble is
due to a fungus disease known as dry
rot or ear rot of corn. In one field
recently investigated in Darlington
county we found 20 per cent. of the
ears destroyed by this disease. Re
ports have come in from other sec
tions showing that the disease is
wide-spread and is causing consider
able damage. Now any disease that
injures our corn crop is of vital inter
est, and every farmer should know
enough about such a disease to enable
him to combat it where it causes loss.
It is hoped that at least a part of
such knowledge will be gained from
Symptoms of the disease are very
characteristic. At the time the corn
begins to ripen, the husks on the dis
eased ears turn prematurely yellow.
Later, they assume a mottled or
blackish appearance and seem to
stick very close to the ears. When
the husks are pulled back from such
ears, the grains will be found to be
shriveled and immature and the ear
will be noticeably decreased in
weight. Later, the grains appear
very brittle and frequently assume a
brownish color. At this stage the
whole ear is usually overrun with ia
white looking mold. When the dis
eased ears are broken across, small
black fruitng bodies of the fungus
will be found on the tips of the grains
and izr the cob.
This rot is caused by a parasitic
fungus, Diplodea maydis. Si-idies of
the life history of the fungus recent
ly made at the Nebraska and Illinois
Experiment stations shows that the
fungus lives over waiter on the dis
eased ears and stalks 'ich are left
in the field. It spreads from these
to the new corn the following season
at the time the corn is in silk and
tassel. The infection takes place
through the silks. If the weather con
ditions are favorable for the develop
ment of the fungus at this stage the
disease spreads very rapidly. At the
Illinois station the fungus has been
found tc live on the o1d corn stalks
in the flid for two years, and in some
cases for three years. They recom
mend that the corn stalks be removed
from the field and destroyed and that
a rotation be practiced which will
keep corn off of the land for two
years. It seems that such measures
would eliminate the disease. I have
in mind one case in this State, how
ever, where the disease has done con
sieable damage in the face of such~
rotaTion, so it seems that some fur
th;.r data are needed before we can
giv- definite measures for controlling
the disease. In this connection it is
well to keep in mind the fact that re
moving the corn stalks from the field
eliminates one of the principal sour
ces of infection for the next season.
This emphasizes the advantage to be
gained by cutting and shredding the
corn. As stated above, however, we
need more data which will apply to
Southern methods and conditions. In
order to secure such information, we
need co-operation. We are pushing
this investigation now and are asking
that every one who has the disease
in his field will write us about it and
send us specimens. We have on hand
a number of franked tags which will
bring specimens through the mail
free of cost, and we will be glad to
send these to anyone desiring to send
such specimens. Where cases seem
to warrant it, we will be glad to visit
fields where the disease is causing
trouble and look into the conditions

The Phone and the Rural Problem.
Roosevelt's country life commission
designated the telephone as one of the
foremost influences making for the so
lution of the rural problem. The ex
perience of Georgia and other Southern
States is convincing testimony in that
The following extract from the Un
ion (S. C.) Times sets forth this fact
in remarkably brief compass, while
drawing attention to the unique role
the rural 'phone plays in politics:
There is no disputing the fact that
the rural telephone has come to stay,
and that it is one of the greatest con
veniences of modern times. The ef
forts now being put forth by the South
ern Bell Telephone and Telegraph
company to establish these rural lines
should receive the liearty indorsement
of all our people. The line out to
Kelton is already proving itself a very
great convenience. Now that the elec
tion is to come off on August 30, we
expect to get the returns within a few
minutes of the time that the vote there
is counted. Now, if we had a direct
wire to Cross Keys and West Springs
and to Meador's and to Whitmire, what
an easy task We would have to get the
returns from every box in the county!
Not only that, but the people living
along these lines could get the returns
from all over the county just as fast
as the papers could add up and tabu
late the results here. Look here, Mr.
Farmer, let's get busy and get these
lines scattered throughout our coun
ty before another two years. And
election returns is but one of the many
advantages. If we had good roads and
telephone lines how easy to get a doc
tor in time of sudden illness. Then,
too, how easy for the resident in the
country to ring up Union, Jonesville,
New York-in fact, any market, and
get prices or any other valuable infor
mation in connection with the market
ing of his products! We believe the
day of the rural telephone and of the
good roads is at hand. An advancing
civilzation is crying loudly for these
two marks of a progressive people.
The farm lines that make almost a
network of Georgia comprised a mater
ial factor in the case with which the
Constitution made its unprecedented
reports of the results in the State's
recent gubernatorial election.
It was notable that returns came in
from those counties well supplied with
the rural 'phone infinitely more quick
ly than from those counties that have
not yet seen the light in the right
The Times is correct. The political
usefulness of the rural 'phone is one
of its smallest advantages. The far
mer with this instrument in his house
keeps a finger on the pulse of the mar
ket, has the doctor almost next door,
is protected in the event of fire and is
in immediate touch with his neighbor
as well as with civilization, so far as
this country is concerned.
When it is considered that the aver
age farmer can install this advance
agent of development at a cost less
than the present return from a bale of
cotton, it is not difficult to understand
why the rural 'phone is making great
strides in this as in other States.
