Prevent Sweet Potato Disease
bweet potato growers in Newton
and St. Louis Counties have snf
feral severe loss to their sweet
potato crop for several reasons on
account of the bind: rot tlisense.

nails of tho State. Control me
thods nrn outlined by Professor
Wosii as follows:
"Demonstrations of control
measures for this and other sweet
potato diseases were made on the
farms of several extensive growers
of sweet potatoes in the spring of
1920. Results show that black
rot was prevented almost complete
ly by the methods used. The
treatment consists of three steps,
the first being to prepare tho plant
bed with fresh soil each season.
'Mean sand, or scil from the wood
lot, aro Hie best materials to use.
The next slop is to sort over the
seed potatoes carefully before
bedding, removing and destroying
all roots showing rot of nny sort.
The Inst and most important step
is tiisinteution ot the apparently
sound roots, just betore bedding.
The material used is corrosive sub
limate (metcurio chloride) dis
solved in water at the rate of one
ounce, to 10 gallons, in which the
roots are soakud for 8 to 10 min
utes. This destroys the spores of
black rot and several othor sweet
potatoes diseases which may be on
the surface of the sound seed,
thereby preventing infection of
the roots of the sprouts or plants
"lieeauso of the increasing im
portance and valuo of tho sweet
potato crop, it would he well for
all growers to take this inexpen

"Tnetlllsm" Is the name of a new
"art" Invented by Slgnur Marlnettl, Uio
Italian futurist, who, recently, to a
large audience of pnlnters, urt critics
and society people In Paris, explained
Its principles. It la a method of con
veylng Impressions through the sense
of touch, "which bus hitherto been
neglected by the' arts."
Martnettl told how he had tried to
establish a series of conventions,
which could be easily learned, by
which different touches would bring
forth definite Ideas. For Instance,
something rough, spiky and hot to the
touch would give the Idea of the
Sahara. The scan would be conjured
up by something smooth and cold, llks
stiver paper, and Paris by a mixture
of slue nnd velvet. It Is an evidence
of the readiness of the day to take
up anything new that this adventur
ous futurist pioneer is now the lion ot
tbe season. Ue Intends to bo In Paris
for some weeks, but hn.i nlreatly re
ceived so many Invitations to attend
fashionable receptions and evening
parties that be confesses that he hard

done by placing a rope around the ani

a quarter ot an Inch or so more, but
never less than tho exact height.
Use of Peat as Fuel.
Pew hne realized that peat might
replace coal and break to u large ex

Pnr several months a Minneapolis
cempany has been engaged In the prep
urutlon of peat for tuel, said to bu the
only enterprise of Its kind In the coun
try'. A machine has been perfected that
djg, macerutes and spreads out to dry
TOO tons of wet peat In a day, or a
quantity sufllclent to produce 100 tons
of dry fuel. That's how much peiit
contracts In the drying process. One
man operates the machine.

operated on a bog near Minneapolis,
and peat, processed at the University
of Minnesota, was burned with satis
factory results In a Minneapolis offlce
A crusher plant, with a capacity of
MX) tqns of peat a day, has been built
In Minneapolis during the winter to
produce powdered peat, and In the
spring ten peat digging machines are
to be started on tbe Minnesota bogs
Delivering the Goods.

"Of course, the transmission of
photographs by wire was thought out

could not put It Into practice. .So
nothing much came of their work, for
an Inventor's backers Insist on the
prompt delivery of the goods.
"An Inventor can't treat his back
