More About Tomato Blight.
Mr, Editor:-! see by the Rural of May 27th that Mr. Sheldon of New Plymouth says that the tomato blight is troubling the farmers of that local ity. This is no new thing. It is a disease, if disease it be, that has in tested our tomato gardens for years past. There has been much experi menting done to ascertain the cause and to find a remedy, but wo far as have been able to learn, no remedy has as yet been found that has given satisfaction. Your correspondent, while travelling on the other side of the Snake river, in Malheur county, Oregon, happened to run onto a patch of tomatoes that looked so thrifty and vigorous that they attracted attention. I noticed that they Storni very thick on the ground and were loaded with toma toes besides being the picture of health. ! remarked that they were very thick and needed trimming. The reply was that they needed no trimming and this was ail that was said about the mat ter. A few hours later while at the dinner table of one of the neighbors of this man, the subject of tomato cul ture came up and I was then inform' etl that tomatoes should never be trimmed or transplanted, and that the blight always attacks plants that have been transplanted or disturbed by trimming. They said to plant iti rows in the place where you want them to grow, about the middle of May and never thin, but keep clean until your plants get up to a fair size. Then stop weeding and let the weeds and grass grow and you will always have tine tomatoes. I give this as I receiv ed it for the benefit of your readers and l wish that someone would try it. 1 was informed that the person who thinks lie has discovered how to raise tomatoes successfully did not s\.mt the world to know the secret. I add, he that lives for self with purely •Itish motives, will die the same way, Ç r mmm innnnnr TBTmnrimnnnf wï inr imnnrB imnnnr v winnr tq £ AT j CAT 1-7 Pure Bred Live Stock, con O/xLLi sistingof Shorthorn, Hereford and Jersey Cattle, Cotswold, Lincoln, Shropshire Sheep, Poland China and Chester White Hogs and Standard Bred Trotting Horses.
