TWO BARLEY LEAF DISEASES
Blights, Commonly Called Rust, Has
Appeared In Many Sections In
Past Two Seasons.
(By WALTER B. L.EUTZ.)
During the past two seasons there
oas appeared in many sections a
widespread disease on barley, com
monly called rust, but in no way re
lated to this disease. It is caused by
an Imperfect fungus.
There are two forms of these leaf
spot diseases of the barley, one an
early blight which has been desig
nated as "the yellow leaf disease."
The yellow leaf disease appears
early during the season. This Is

The size of the crib is according to

IN REPAIRING A DIRT ROAD
Few Little Hints That Will Tend to
Make Work of Fixing Up
In repairing a drrt road:
Don't fill up the holes nnd ruts In
the dirt road with brush, with rocks
on top, and a little dirt to cover the
rocks; but fill up the hole with dirt
of the same character as the balance
of the road.
Don't throw all the refuse from the
ditches Into the middle of the toad,
thus softening the surface and de
stroying the solid, firm bed that you
have obtained by previous work; but
throw this material out on the op
poslte ride of the ditch.
Don't leave the center of the road
the lowest point; but make It the
highest and give the surface of the
road a slope of about 1 In 20 to the
Don't carry the water across the
surface of the road from one side to
the other; but carry It by means o'
culverts underneath the road.
