While there is a big discrepancy be
tween the prices which It was claimed
could be got for ginseng in the craze
which swept over the country four or
five years ago and those which are
quoted today, the returns are never
theless suficient to give a good In
terest return on the money invest
ed provided one has the patience to
bide his time for results. The present
prices of ginseng range from $4.50 to
$43.75 per pound for the dried roots,
the higher prices being received for
the wild product, which finds a conge
nall home in moist, moldy wood tots
where the shade is sufficiently dense
to keep blue grass from getting a foot
hold. The roots should not be gath
ered before they are two years old,
while much t'arger and a better quality
of roots are secured if they are al
lowed to grow a longer period. In the
artiicial cultivation of ginseng the
conditions of moisture and shade re
ferred to as existing In a native wood
lot are repro'-/.ed as nearly as possi
ble, the beds being shaded by the erec
tion of slat roofs and abundant miois

Black Rot of Sweet Patatec.
ne of the miost wid.- spr.-ad an! mnost

Present Is the !aek :')t of Sweet P'
tatoe. Tlis disrase occurs quite com
rmonly and does considerable dam:sge on
potatoe- both in the field and in .sora:e.
The rot is caused by a parasitic fungus
which. under certain conditions. is able
to pa.-s from one plant to another and
thus spread the disease.
The trouble first appears as brown or
black patches or mottled. discolored
areas on the surface of the potates.
Quite frequently these discorbred areas
are obsered in potatoes when they are
du-. but at this stage the diseases only
seems to penetrate the skin and is ap
parently doing no serious harm. Later
the rot extends into the potatoe and
causes the allected area to turn black
and to emit the odor which is so char
acter stic of rotten potatoes. When such
wotatoes are stored in warm, moist
places. the rot producing fungus be
comes especiaily active and by means
of Liuy spores, which are produced in
small black pustules on the surface of
the diseased areas, spreads rapidly from
one potatoe to an(.iher. Under such con
ditions the disease is also spread by the
filaments of the fungu, growing from
the rotten potatoe directly into adjoin
ing healthy potatoes. In this wa-: the

I y diseased potatoes seem to sprout as
readily as healthy ones, and the slips
fron such potatoes are diseased. The
disease tra.ferred with such slips .to
the field remains on the plant and at
tacks the potatoes when they develop.
The fungus which causes black rot. also
lives over in the soil from year to yer
and where potatoe% are planted every
I year on the same land, the disease con
stantly gets worse.
To prevent black rot then we must:
First. secure disease free seed for plant

Quite frequently it is impossible to

it is well to use vines instead of slips,

Now, as I have said, black rot occurs
on the majority of the farms in this
state. and is responsible either directly
or indirectly for the loss of thousands of
dollars worth of potatoes annually, so it
is well for every farmer to look out for
it and guard against its spread. If you
have already bedded your potatoes and
I are not sure that they are free from dis
ease. plant as much of your crop as you
can from vines and on lanu not previous
ly planted in potatoes. When 3 ou gather
these potatoes, bank sepa rately the ones
grown from the vines and the ones
grown from the slips and note the keep

Potatoes should not be banked for two
ears in su.ession in the same place.
because the fungi which cause these
rots will live over in the old banks and
attack, the new potatoes as soon as they
are baniced. Where potatoe houses or
cellars are used for storine. they should
be cleaned out and disinfected before

Literary Censorship In Russia.
In an article on the literary censor

furter Zeltung says that some of the
queer examples of this work on the
part of the czar's government are
worthy of note. In a poem the line
"Under strange skies we may be hap

that "no sky can be more conducive
to happiness than that which spreads
over Russia." A biography of Sum=

In the book of Job appears the sen
tence, "I am escaped with the skin of
my teeth." which is modernized "-by
the skin of my teeth" and gives the

as to be just by the thickness of the
skin on the teeth, which is so thin
that no microscopist has yet been able

mnner of an action full of frenzied
fury, typitied by biting and scratching.
