THREE FLTIK GDTTOH NUfSANCECANBB DONE AWAY WITH Forest Pathologist of. United States Government Gives Out Result of Experiments; Pruning Ineffective, Of especial Interest to Albiuitierriuo citizens at this time I n letter re ceived by the Journal from District Forester Arthur C. JiitiKlniid, enolos Inir 11 lot'11'' tram Forest Pathologist V, il. hong, ot the United Mates tor ,Mt stivice, giving the result of xpcr Inieiits conducted with a view to elim inating the flying cotton nuisance which at this season in always so ob tci'tionnula: "Kdltor Allu(ueriie Morning Jour nnl: A plan to abate the 'cotton' nuisance in this city and ut the same time obviate the unnecessary de-at ruc tion of Imperatively needed tdiade treea should be of Interest to every eitixen. Dr. Long In his report pre sents a suggestion that meets this con dition. "In my judgment, however, the city niithorlticn should do more thnn merely abate the 'cotton' nuisance. A tree ceiiaus should be made and ft plan for an Intelligent system of street ifie planting determined upon. The. cottonwood is a short-lived tree, bo it would we he well to give considera tion to the planting of more enduring xpeciCR, such "s the elm, ash or lo cust. (Noto the fine young elms on the Alvarado hotel grounds.) How cvi r, I wniiM not advocate the entire replacement of the Cottonwood. As you know, It U a rapidly growing tree; some of cur streets are so lacking In shade or beauty thnt we can hardly afford to wait for other species to reach the necessary sisie. This sug gests the planting of the Lombardy poplar. This tree will grow as rapid ly ns our common brondleaf cotton wood, is free from cotton, and Is one of the most beautiful trees known. It grows tall and straight, forming an aisle of f,rcen on the streets whero nbnted. (Pome of the most beautiful j struts In Washington, 1. C, are lined with Hie I.cmhardy poplar.) "AlbiKiucriim needs shade trees! Even if we do nothing In the way of plum intr. let us not destroy In a day nature's work of years. "YYrv iruly yours, "AKTHl'R O. RIXGLAXD, "District Forester." Mr. I,ong letter Id Mr. Uingland is as follows: "Mr. Arthur C. Ttingland, District For ester, I'nited States Forest Service. "Dear Sir: In response to your re quest I am glad to submit a report on experiments to prevent formation of cotton on the cottonwood tree. One of Albuquerque's greatest as sets in drawing tourists, homeseekers and others to locate here are her streets lined with many beautiful shade tres. This is an asset that her citizens apparently have not fully ap preciated or appraised at its full val ue; otherwise they would never per mit the contemplated destruction or mutilation of so many of her lnrge-t and finest trees. All of the cotton hearing trees on the streets of Albu querque have been iixe-marked and the owners' are expected to eltlierViit them down or prune back the tops until only (he trunk and a few large branch stubs are left. It Is claimed that these trees bear such an abund ance of cotton that they are a pub lic nuisance, and should either be de stroyed outright or pruned back so severely that they would not form cot ton for several year. This severe pruning it best Is only a makeshift, for after a few years the new branches commence to bear cotton, thus neces sitating a rrcond severe pruning. Each limning seriously injures tho vitality i of the tree. It was to prevent the for-! mallon of this cotton nn thereby j save from destruction hundreds of beautiful cottonwood treei that an In vestigation was undertaken l.y the forest pathological laboratory at the forest service hetidiiuarters in this city. - "Cottonwood trees are usually of two kinds. One bears the flowers which later produce the cotton; the oilier, known as the slaminate or "male" tree, does not produce cotton. The statninute blossoms or catkins purplish in color, while the pistillate or cotton-bearing: blossoms are green ish. It is, therefore, easy to tell which ni'e the cotton-ibearing trees ut blos soming time. i "If tho blooms which later produce the colton are destroyed, then natural ly thtf'tft will not bear any cotton that year. The only feasible plan for killing the young blossoms la by the use of sprays which would destroy tho tender flowers and yet not lnjuro the rest of the tree. This Is made, pos sible by the fact that the cottonwoods bloom before the leaves unfold. Very strong sp:ays can, therefore, be used on the blossoms without danger to the future foliage of the tree. Naturally the sprays would be capable of de stroying tender vegetation, or weed killetiH, as some might call them. "Several chemicals were used in the spraying experiments. The most promising, all things considered, were: (l) A saturated solution of common salt, (2) crude oil and (3) 1 per cent solution of sulphuric acid. The salt solution did not kill all the flowers. Th crude oil did, but It in jured the trees to some extent as well as the luwiv under them. T 1 per cent solution of sulphuric acid when thoroughly upplied to the blooms killed all of thoiii and did not Injure the tree, the men doing the spraying nor the lawns or adjacent houses. 'This spring, the cotton-beaiing trees were blooming during u period of from four to six weeks, and the length of time in which any single, tree could bo sprayed was about three weeks, Hinee all of the trees do not bloom at the same time, there Is am ple opportunity and time to siirny in succession all ut the trees as they bloom. "A good power outfit with high platform for spraying trees, like the outfits used In the east for spraying the big elms for the elm-leaf beetle, would easily and rapidly destroy the blooms on all of the cotton-bearing trees. The expense Incident to the spraying would not be great. "While the experiments iso far con ducted are by no means complete or conclusive as to what may finally prove to be the best and cheapest spray, still enough has been done to show that the cotton nuisance enn be controlled by spraying the trees dur ing the blooming season. This meth od Is feasible, practicable and cheap. It will save from death by the uxe or mutilation hundreds of beautiful cottonwoods which are not marked for destruction. "Which is preferable, to spend a little money annually and save our trees, at least until we can grow oth ers which do not have this objection able feature, or to permit the pres ent methods to continue, whereby many trees each your are destroyed or severely injured by severe prun ing and still have the cotton nuisance with us?

YAOUI INDIANS DDDNSILLT01 IN SONOIA STATE (AwH'latnl rma rurmpondoiirO Stockholm. Miiy, SI, There has been much discussion about the smug gling of contraband from Sweden to Germany though It Is well known that the customs officials have been alert to prevent It. The suspicions were Justified apparently in the case of the steamer Kolve which left Stock holm In January loaded with plaids, copper, rubber tiros and a miscellan eous cargo of other articles. She was' bound for N'orrkoplng where addition al cargo was to be put aboard. Then It was Intended to have her go to Malmo nnd off the const where It would be outside Swedish waters have tho ship seized 'by Hermans. In February there was another at tempt. Three big steamers loaded with maize came Into Landscronu har bor, the bills of lading signed to or der. A German presented himself as the owner and ordered the ships on the same day to go to N'orrkoplng around Falsterho, evidently with tho Intention of being taken by Germans. Hut the government declared that the ships must unload in Lnndscrona. In the first week of April there wns another striking case when the steam er Kngland, belonging to the recent Swedish minister of marine, was cap tured off Falsterho nnd brought to Stettin, where much of the cargo was unloaded ns belonging to a German, rt was another cargo of malxo and came from America, being under the authorization of the Swdlsh govern ment for use In Sweden. During the journey one of the interested firms sold its part of tho cargo to a Stock holm firm which In turn sold It to the (iertnnn government. I As a result of such attempts the; Swedish authorities now demand that every vessel bound for the east const shall call r.l Malmo for Inspection. It' niny bo thnt some tons of copper may have been smuggled across the fron tier, but there has not been uny sys tematic tride in contralinnd.

Colorado, Off San Diego, by I'adlo to San Diego, Calif., June 12. Yao.nl Indians, it was re ported today, have burned the small town of Yuiul, Sonora, nnd havet tightened tboir besieging ring around a, farm where six civilians and fifteen soldiers are holding them off. All communication with tho surrounded party has been cut off, Tbe burning oYnnuis included the destruction of a hotel and warehouses owned by ti mining company. Cumin.a officials, It was reported today, have made full reparation to the British consul at Colima, state of Collma, for prop'crty losses there. I'avment has been made for hordes stolen nnd an apology offered. A. Ochner, an American who has been molested, has been promised protection along with all foreigners by the military commandant at Colima. MR. SQUEEGEE AND HIS POPULAR UMBRELLA The queer little character who has recently been appearing in advertis ing under the name of Mr. Squeegee, seated on top of a Diamond Squeegee Trend Tire with an umbrella over his head to protect him from the rain, has attracted a great deal of attention and has caused many people to won der where such a name as Squeegee could have originated. Storo owners have long been accus tomed to clean their windows with the edge of a thin piece of rubber, in serted in a &ino holder, and in some manner or other this utensl" became known an a Squeegee, although the word seems to have no particular sig nificance. When Diamond Tires were mado and it became necessary to provide a name for the tread the word "Squee gee"' nppeured to express the Idea of; the tire, makers exactly. The trend consists of five bars of rubber which. circumscribe the tread, the three In j ths center being continuous and thei two nn the outside broken at regular; intervals, an noiinii logeiner oy cross bars. The non-skid which this tread gives results from a sqneegee-likc workitm of these five bars. When the ear begins to skid tho j outside nar wipes away mo muq ami slime much us a Squcegcr. takes the water from a wet window, nnd per mits the other bars to grip tight to tho pavement. In fact tho principle is exactly that of a "Squeegee" and the tread has been well named. Mr. Squeegee wns originated to typify the Squeegee tread in advertising and to tell car owners about the virtues which his tread holds out for them, especially In wet weather. Whenever he speaks It is raining, for he always has his umbrella up whenever ho Is seen. "Po.trly" wi'Moh: "Pionr pronerlhe f..r mo.
