were opposed to tho salo of liquor and
yot woro willing to tako that oouoty'u
sham of public school funds from li

Mr. de Loaoh nneworod that tho dis

noblo motivo. It is an outrageous en
deavor to fur00 upon tho pooplo of York
and othor such counties the adoption bf
an obnoxious system by holding oui
tho tempting bait of profit. Ho culo
gis.d tho people of York as a progr?s-'
nive and noblo pooplo.

Loaoh had piolured thom -fighting tho

thoy touch tho.filthy luoro 'earning
.from its tale? He warmly refuted tho

Loaoh disolaitnod.using the word lg
noblo.) Mr Pr i noe then declared
broadly that ho was not tho man to

Tho ability of oort ai n ootton plants to
grow on infootod land is duo to tho fact
that tho wilt fungus is unable to ontor
their principal root system and not to
any lack of infootion. . This has boon
determined by micronoplo examination.
That infootion of thoso plants has real
ly taken placo may bo dcmoesti?tcd by
an examination of their roots for tho
littlo tufts of root-lots whioh mark tho
location of infootiono. Tho roots of
plants takon from tho sow of Janno
vitoh ootton woro attacked by tho fun
gus in OYov a hundred p'.aoes, as found
by aotual oount, yet in no eaao did tho
parasite penetrate as for as tho main
?tom, whllo plants of king ootton in tho
adjoining row woro oompletoly ovor
oomo. A? determined by numerous mi
orosoopio examinations o no h littlo tuft
of roots marks a point ru talced by tho
fungus, so that thoro oan bo no doubt
of tho thoroughness of the infootion
and, furthermore, no doubt that ouch
plants ar? aotunlly r?sistant to the fun?
It ls evident that suoh an effect as,
tho fungus has produced here must in
jure tho plant consider ably and this
was found to ba the ORSO. The averag?
height of plants grown on tho infootod
iaoa WAS twenty-throe inohos, while
plants on adjoining land tory slightly
infootod grew forty-two inohes high.
Suoh injury as this would of eouroo
greatly shorten tho mop, but tho indi

In this connection tho most imo or taut
question is wboihor this qiality of. rc

ronibUnoo to tho wilt disoaso. Work
along this lino has alroady boon started
in a small way by, tho department,
whioh it io hoped may bo onlargod.
It has boon shown that much can bo
aooomplishcd in tho control of tho wilt
diqoasa of ootton by simply solcotlng

probablo that bettor results will be ob
tained by oroos breeding thoso rosistant
individuals, for in this way tho rosiB
tant qualities of two plants will bo
oombinod and thero will bo added tho
inoroiBcd vigor whioh. usually comen
from crossing. On tho other hand, if
tho flowers ora resistant ootton plant
should be.fortilized by poll?n brought
by in8C0ts from a disoasad plant, as
may oatily happon in tho fiold, plants
grown from tho rosulting needs will
wry likely bo less rgsistant than if thoy
had boen fertilized by poll?n from an
other rcs:slant plant. On this oooouat.
in tho Bclcotion of rosistant raoes, it will
bo dcsirablo to cress by hand as many
