The "Red Rust" on Cotton.
The discovery by Prof. Atkinson of the
cause, ana a remeayjor us preveww.
Cor. of the Raleigh Observer.
About two weeks ago the cause of the
so-called red met on cotton was discov
red by Prof. George F. Atkinson. Since
then he has been experimenting on the
prodaotion of tne disease ana lor
remedy. Specimens of diseased cotton
were sent by Mr P. L. Woodard of Black
A rust is prodnced by the growth of a
parssitio fungus upon a plant, lne red
rust, so called, on cotton, is not a rust at
all. but a diseased condition of the plant
produced by a mite which sucks the juices
from the under side of the leaves, and
from the braots at the base of the boll,
causing them to take on the familiar rusty
appearance, to wither and fall to tne
There is uo fungus in connection with
the appearance of the disease. The mites
oan scarcely be seen with the unaided eye,
With the aid of a hand lens they can be
seen running rapidly about, now and tben
stopping to bite into the tissues and suck
out the in ice. The mites are about one
sixtieth of an inch long, of a dull white
color with a brown spot on each side.
They have four pairs of legs and resemble
small spiders. The eggs are about one
two-hundredth of an inch in diameter,
white, and glued to the under side of the
leaf. They hatch in one or two days,
when the mites begin the work of sappiug
the juices, and spin a light, irregular web,
In from three to four days the young
mites are full grown and ready to deposit
eggs. Thus it can be seen that they mul
tiply with exceeding rapidity.
Several experiments were conducted to
prove that the mites were the cause of the
disease. Mites were placed upon cotton
showing no sign of rust, and which was
entirely free from mites. In a short time
minute blotches appear, caused by inflam
mation of the tissues where the .bite oc
curs. As the sap is taken, the tissues
shrink, become r6ddeced, the leaf becomes
sickly and falls oil.
The remedy used to kill the mites was
as follows: A strong infusion of tobacco,
mixed with kerosene oil thoroughly einul
sified with the use of bo a p. Tobacco was
used so that a less proportion of keroseue
oil might be used tban iu the common
kerosene emulsion, to insure no harm to
the ootton from its application. The pro
portion of kerosene oil was 1 to SO of
This Petroleo-Tobacco emulsion was ap
plied in a fine spray to the under side of
the leaves with the use of a force pump.
A tank was drawn on a small Bled and the
hose bent so as to throw the stream from
below. The sled was kept in constant
motion and the leave were thoroughly
sprayed, killing nearly all the miles. No
injury to the cotton resulted. The eggs
are not destroyed, so a second epraying
should be given in two to three days,
before the next generation begin . to de
A bent nozzle oould be made so that
the spray could easily be applied to the
under surface of the leaves.
The Petroloo-Tobacco emulsion is a very
cheap and safe remedy for this and many
The small amount ol kesosene oil needed
and the abundance of tobacco in the State
ought to justify the manufacture of a
Jretroleo-tobacco aoap, which could be
easily dissolved in water and largely and
profitably used in the State and elsewhere,
if some chemist will tell us how to make
such a soap.
The red rust mite, if taken in time, can
be profitably destroyed, and every cotton
grower in the South should provide him
self with the means of preventing the
damage caused by one of the greatest
pests of cotton districts.

Selecting a Cow.
A model useful dairy cow may be
known at a glance by an expert. She
has a fine, long head, broad between the
eyes, and a thin, wide muzzle; the eyes
are large, and of a mild expression; the
neok is thin and long; the ears are thin
and covered within with a deep yellow
skin; the forequarters are light and thin,
and the whole body has much the shape
of a wedge, increasing in size to the rear;
the legs are thin with fine bone; the
belly is large and deep, with great ca
pacity for food; the back is broad and
straight, and the ribs are well rounded to
wards the rear; the bones of the rump are
wide apart; the tail is long and thin; the
thighs are set widely apart; the udder is
large and full, especially behind; the teats
are of good size, and set far apart upon a
broad, level udder, and the milk-vem, so
called, which is the large vein leading
from the pdder and passing into the ab

amount of blood circulating through the
milk glands, and contributing to the

Crops After Peas.
In addition to the good things already
mentioned about peas, it may be said that
after taking off the vines which make
excellent hay, capable of keeping stock
fat with the addition of a very small
quantity of corn the land is left in good
condition. The roots have broken and
mulched the soil to a great depth, while
the growing crop has shaded the ground,
which with its attendant conditions is the
best part of the results of pea-culture.
Three pecks to one bushel of Life Pre
server peas is best for hay-making, be
cause the crab grass will then race with
the vines and make a good mixture, which
shortens the time of good curing. Mown
in the morning after the dew is off, raked
into wind-rows the same evening, or the
next day, and put into cocks the second
evening, it will be ready for bousing on
the third day. To insure perfect safety
posts might be arranged for inserting bars
as the hay is stored, which will give air
passages through the bay. Dry fodder or
straw may be interlaid instead of the bars
(which may benefit all round.) Fine
crops of oats or rye may be grown after
peas without addition of fertilizers. I
know of a patch of rye following peas that
was grazed all winter and till April, and
then made the best crop of rye I ever saw.
Any crop following peas has the ad
vantage of a considerable application of
My first observation of pea-culture as a
benefit to land occurred the second year
of my experience. Not having enough
peas about two acres of corn were with
out a pea crop that fall I sowed oats,
using about seventy-five pounds of guano
per acre. Where the peas had grown the
year before I gathered twenty to forty
bushels of oats, while the oats after corn
alone were hardly stout enough to be
In a certain field, which was partly in
corn and peas and partly in oats last year,
and which is now in cotton without fer
tilizer, the difference in appearance of the
plant is the difference of a moderate appli
cation of fertilizer in favor of the peas.

Hogs and Cholera.
I see that some one wishes a cure for
hog cholera. I think there is none, yet I
can give you a preventive, which is bet
ter than a cure. I feed my hogs, full
blooded Berkshire), graded and common
stock, twice a week, the following in
gredients; I never had the cholera among
my hogs, although my neighbors' hogs
had it: I give to twenty-five bead, bran
about oue peck, salt one quart, wood
ashes oue peck, soda quarter of a pound,
and about one tablespoonful of carbolic
acid all mixed well.
If any one will follow this recipe, and
keep his hogs on good grass and clover
pasture, with plenty of clear running
water (spring,) I don't think he will ever
see the cholera in his herd. A good many
farmers buy fine hogs from the North,
from half to full grown, raised in pens for
exhibition, and such hogs will tumble at
the first attack. If they would patronize
home breeds and buy acclimated stock,
there would be a considerably smaller
loss. Being inysell a swine breeder, I
wish to see the hog raised in the South to
what it ought to be a staple article to
a full and healthy standard. I kimw by
observation and my own trials that Berk
shire males crossed ou the common South
ern hog give very satisfactory results, for
health, fattening qualities, etc., and will
withstand any disease if properly taken
care of. Your head is level on the hog
question, and I wish you success iu try
ing to get the Southern farmer to see his
hogs and his faults through other men's
spectacles. G. Camerer in Southern Cultivator.

or scissors, and on no account pull or
twist them off. One reason why so many
vines die as soon as they begin to bear is
that the vines are injured in cultivation
or in gathering the fruit. Cut freely and
often, for as soon as the seeds begin to in
crease in size the flowers cease to set.
