BLACK SPOT CANKER.
Time to Spray Apple Orchards for
Spots With Rings.
Apples having this disease have
been examined this week at the State
Experiment Station and found to be
distributing spores. Spores are also
distributed at this season from the
cankers on the limbs and trunks of
diseased trees. These spores are car
ried by insects, water drops and wind
to other parts of the same tree and to
neighboring trees. Many of them
will develop new cankers. To pre
vent this spread of the disease, af
fected orchards should be sprayed as
soon as possible after the apples are
picked. The spray solution used may
be either Sulphur-Lime (specific
gravity 1.02), or double strength
Bordeaux, as preferred. As soon as
the leaves fall another spraying
should be given. The spraying should
be supplemented by a systematic de
struction of all disease-spotted ap
ples. Much of the infection of stored
apples is brought about by mixing
diseased apples with the good fruit
during picking and storing. Observa
tions recently made by Experiment
station men at Chehalis indicate that
flies may be instrumental in spread
ing the disease. Under a number of
trees were decaying windfalls, many
of which showed the characteristic
Black Spot rot. During the sunny
part of the day flies and other insects
were continually flying to these ap
ples and later flying off into the trees.
If the windfalls were carefully gath
ered and destroyed, this source of in
fection would be eliminated.
It is comparatively easy to disting
uish the Black Spot rot from the
Fruit Spot, which is also common in
the orchards of the state. The Black
Spot rot has a small point or opening
in the center. If the spot is small
this will be surrounded by a narrow
border of light brown. If the spot is
larger, concentric rings of light
brown will surround the point and
the spot will be darker brown around
the edge, which is rather sharply de
fined. The spot also seems flat and
shallow as compared with the Fruit
Spot infection. Spots which are pro
ducing spores are usually one-fourth
inch to one-half inch in diameter.

Immense Cost ef Roman Feasts.
The amount of money often expend
! Ed by the wealthy Romans on their
| sumptuous meals appears fabulous.
| Vitellius is paid to have spent as much
jas 404 sestertia (about £4,228 of Eng
! lish money) on his daily supper, and
■ the celebrated feast to which he In
vited his brother cost no less than
£40350. It consisted of 2,000 different
dishes of fish and 7,000 of fowls, with
other equally numerous meats. His
daily food was of the most raro and
exquisite nature. The deserts of Lybia.
the shores of Spain, the waters of the
Carpathian sea and even the coasts
! and forests of Britain were diligently
| searched for dainties to supply his
table, and had he reigned long he
would, observes Josephus, have cx

Must Have Tired His Jaws.
It might be well for those who adopt |
the one meal a day system to become j
chewers at the same time. A chewer,
according to dietetic experts, is one
who chews all things so long as they j
have any taste left la Ihem. Glad- j
stone, it is recorded, used to take j
thirty-two bites to every mouthful of !
food. This would be considered dan
gerously rapid eating by the modern
school of chewers. "I have tried
chewing conscientiously," writes Eus
tace Miles. "A banana has cost 800
bites, a small mouthful of bread and
cheese 240 bites, a greedy mouthful of
biscuit (while I was walking on a
Yorkshire moor) more than a thousand
bites. It still seemed to taste about
as much as at first, but I knew that
taste by then, so I swallowed."—Lon

The Last Dueling Clergymen.
"When did clergymen cease to fight

But. as a matter of fact, the Rev. Mr
