VERMONT WATUHMAN & STATE JOURNAL, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMJ3ER 17, 1902.
Tho contiiiucd wet weathor follow
lug tho bllght, is lcnding to serlous
Totting of potntoes. Tho Vermont ox
porlment statiou is roceiving bo
many iiiqairics as to tho niattor, tlmt
tho followlng stateiuonts soem timely:
Tho lato bllght or "rust" which
has beou so provalent tliis year, la
oaused by a fungiis, a klnd of mlldow,
whioh Is carricd through tho wlntor
in tho seed potato and so f ur as known
only in this way. Whoro suoh infect
cd potatoes aro planted tho fungus
dovolops iu tho potato shoots and
ilnnlly canses tho bllght of tho leaves,
providing weathor conditions aro at
all favorablo, Tho gorms or Bporcs
aro produced in cnornious nunibors on
thoso blighting leaves and by these
tho infection Is spread to ueighboring
plants. Many of tho sporosfall to tho
ground also, and invading tho tubors,
causo tho rot, Spraying with bor
deanx rnixturo killsthcso spores, and
so provonts both tho bllght of tho
leaves and tho rot of tho tubors. Tho
plants at tho oxperiiuent station farm,
which have beon sprayed, aro now
green and healthy now (Sopt. 0) as
thoy wero a month ago, whoreas tho
rows in tho flold loft unsprayed aro
doad. Many farniors throughout tho
Stato havo had cqually good results
from spraying. Where tho plants were
sprnyed little rot is doveloping, but
in the unprotected fields where tho
tops havo blighted, rot is serious.
Tho question is boiug askcd whothor
it is bottor to dig at ouce in thoso
iiolds. Tho Exrierinient station odi
ocrs advise pronipt tligging. They
havo not decidod this by oxperirnents,
howover, so are now carrying on some
to settlo tho matter. A half dozon
flolds havo beon selected on different
soils, where tho vines are blighted.
Ono-fourth of tho rows in eacli flold
wore dug on Angnstsri; one-fourth
on Sept.O; oilo-fonrth will be dug
Sept. 18, and tho last fonrth on Sopt.
30. The condition as to tho total
yield, nmount of rot and keeping
qnalities will thon be compared.
Some other interesting experimeuts
upon potatoes are also uiuler way,
tho results of whieh will bo published
lator. One of thoso is to determiuo
whether, when tho vinos make a rank
growth, it is better to cut them back.
Auother seeks to flnd out whether

BUYING HOGS CHEAP.
No swiuo breeder can allord to buy
animals just because they are eheap.
It not infrenuently happens that tho
cheapest animals provo to be the most
oxpensivo in tho eud, whether that
end may be iu tho way of breeding
or ot butchering. If an animal is
cheap it is oecauso it is not worth
much, except iu rare cases, when a
good animal has to be disposed of un
der the couditions of a forced sale.
The man that buys a eheap boar finds
that he has to sell the progeny of that
boar at a correspondingly low price.
The man that buys a cheap sow
frequeutly finds that sho is cheap be
cause sho bears few pigs, and they of
poor quality. By tho time ho has dis
posed of tho pigs and figured up his
accounts, ho finds that tho cheap sow
was really a very expensive sow, for
into her went not only tho purchaso
money, but a great deal of labor and
feed. No progressivo man will allow
the prico to diotato his purchases.
Quality is what ho must havo, and
that is what ho is aftor. The man
that really buys cheap is tho man that
pays a good prico for a good animal
aud gots a good proflt out of it. It is
very seldom that a good profit comes
out of a poor price aud a poor animal.

NEED BROAD CULTURE.
A writer in tho Tribune Farm

turo is nifro vital 011 tho farm than
in professions. Ho thinks that eondi

volve moro soholarship than thoso
which tho lawyer has to discuss. "It
follows that tho farm should bo tho
best educated man in tho community. "
This is also corrcct ; and I belivo that
it will sliortly come true. A farmor
farms it at guess work who has no
knowldge of eutomology, botany, geol
ogy and tho corrolated scionces. Real
horticulturo is a wondorful scienco of
itself, besidos being tho applicatiou of
a dozen othor scionces. Theu look
at tho interests which aro dopondont
upon a farm. "i ou will oxamino this
question but a little way boforo you
will concludo that agricultnro should
not bo left iu the hands of iguorant
or half educated people. This is all
the more true now that intensivo
farming is taking tho placo of tho

The man or woman whoso digestion

When a fowl has scabby legs tho
greatest precautious must be taken.
An ointment hould bo used early
aud ofteu, or elso the birds should be
killed, as tho diseaso is coutagious.
Do not allow a bird with scabby legs
in tho llock, as it is a filthy, disa
greeable object. When tho diseaso
first apears an easy way to ouro it is
to rub on tho legs a grease composed
of ono part qf koroseno to oue part
of lard. This will iu nearly overy
caso entiroly clcar off tho scabs.
When tho logsbecomo thickly covered,
howover, the first duty Is to scrape

aftor which greaso tho logs from toes

of ono toaspoonful of carbolio aeid

of coal-oil. Tho paiasito will succumb
to tho ointment, and tho scalos will

Paris, Sent. 11. What was at first
an uuconfirmed rumor, that tho Bank
of Franco had been robbcd, is given
out oillcially today as true. Scveral
morning uowspapers dovoted quito a
bit of space to tho rumor Wednesday
but it was not until lato that aftor
uoon that the story was vcrifiod.
Thero is but little doubt that tho
work was dono by professionals. Tlio
bank oflicials aro roticent about tho
affair, but being pressed for a stato
mont said: "The robbery amouuted
to 644,000 in gold. It was discovered
yesterday, but was kopt quiot on tho
advico of tho polico. It was not tho
work of burglars. Tiio gold was tak
on in tho dayti-ue, evidently by a per
son or porsons having nccess to tho
cash vault, but suspioion yet rcsts on
Tho secrot service of Paris aro in
clined to believo that professional
bank robbers in tiio guise of employees
aro rcsponsible for tho robbery.

New York, Sept. 11. A big red Texas
steer, which had evidently become fam
ished for want of water anJ fodder, ran
wild in Williamsburg this morning and
imperilled more than 1,000 children. It
was one of tho most exciting mornings
that Williamsburg has ever had, aud
about a dozen children who were unable
to get out of the animal's wav were more
or less injured, but none seriously enough
to warrant removal to an hospital. They
were taken home by their parents, while
about fifty more children who had become
frightened at the steer's exploits suftered
too much from the shock to attend th
school session. Before the steer was
killed it had become impaled by the
throat on one of the pickets of the school
The animal waa lassooed, but freed it
self again, and nothing further could be
done until two of the drovers who had
got on the track of the runaway steer
reached the school. After lassooing the
animal one of the men cut its throat

SEPTEMBER WILD FLOWERS.
Rnggcd nnd frayed ln Soptembor
dross, but withnl, thoro is a beauty
peculiarly its own, snys Coufitry Lifo
in Amorica. So would wo fain ho
cvor aflold. Tho botaulsts strolling
over tho hills aud through tho swamps
roalizos this is practically tho end of
tho ilowor year. As iu tho provions
month, tho flowors nro vory largely
compcslto. Thegoldenrods, thonsters
and tho sunflowors lend vivid patches
of color to tho prospect. There aro
comparatlvoly fow now flowors to bo
Howover tlwro nro sovoral, tlio flnd
ing of which will be among tho cal
endar ovents of tho year. " Perchanco
it is that in tho lattor part of tho
month our wandorings may load you
to tho retreat of tho most beautiful of
all fall blossoms, tho fringed goutian.
Its color is of heaven's own hue, and
lt dolicato beauty is so elusivo as to
defy most skilful brush of tho nrtist.
Who cnn forget the flrst introduction
to theso floral boautios of tho fall
mcadows. Twj other but loss hand
some consins, the stiff gontian aud tho
closed goutian, also como this month.
Datnp places nre mado beautiful by
tlio Jorusalem artichoko, commonly
callcd tho wild sunflower, whoso
briglit cheerful faco seems ovor sinil-
lng a greetinc to tho passorby.
Anothbr of Soptembor' s Ilowor folk
robed in blue or violet is the smooth
or blue ater found in dry soils and
open woods. A famillar little frlond
with whom nlmost everyono is ac
quaintcd, tho white hcath aster, somo
times called white rosomary or faro
well summer, is found in dry soil
everywliero. Not far distnnt you aro
sure to flnd tlio wavy aster or small
firebano, with its thick, rough, heart
shaped lower leaves. The yollow of
the witclihas'.el also gladdeus tlio oyo
of tho loiterer in September woodlands
Flowors should be arrauged accord
ing to thoir natural clusters. Thus
thoso growing in largo groups should
bo arranged in a mass, while thoso
growing separntc nnd apart from their
follows aro moro ellective in lighter
The materials of tho vasu must not
attract nttention. For wild flowors,
especially, tho simpler aud moro rns
tie tlie charactor of the receiver, tlio
better. The eolor must be unobtru
sive, for the attention must bo devot
ed to tlio flower, not tlio vaso. White
or green glass vessels, or those of opal
tints, are often extremely effective if
tliey harmonizo with tho color of tho
ilowers and leaves. Opaquo white
neutral gray or gray bnff are desir
able. Whothor the Iloweis are placed iu
vessels transparent or opaque depeuds
greatly upon tho character of tho
stem, i.e., whether in itself the stem
be graceful or awkward.
Thero is a French aphorism that
says: "Woman should always appear
at her best for her liusbaud. " It
would bo a small wonder indeed, if
less marital defection would result
from a better uuderstauding of tho
home nttire by tho avorage woman
who regards today the lessening at
tentioiis of lier life partnor asareruis
siou on his part, aud fails to under
stand the mission on her sido. Thoro
is nothing liko pretty clothos and well
eousidered attire to mako a suucess
of auy womau's power of attrac
tion. It doosn't take monoy; it sim
ply takes good taste, senso a'uda prop
er view of fitness for flt occasioiis.
B'Elght young Chineso women of
the highest circles in Kiagnssu have
been sent to Japau for tlireo years'
education. It is tho first known caso
of the kind.
It is announcod nt Corneli Uiiiver

Tho simplo'comfortable, serviceablo
nnd good looking shirtwaist suits,
which havo .beeu popnlar this sum
mer, will be reproduced in light
weight wools this fall. A variety of
fabrics will be used in their construc
tion from plain colored, dotted, fleck
ed aud piu striped materials, to the
lightweight wools in tiny checks or
The old'qnery, "Who's got the but
ton?" will not bo difficult to auswor
this fall. One need ouly look at the
gown of the fashionable woman. But
tous will be au important olement
in tlio decorations of the now cos
tnms. Thero are all sorts to solect
from, gnn motnl, dull silver aud
ouamol boiug especinlly appropriato
for clieviots, oloths and othor rathor
heavy fabrics,! while for dainty, deli
ato silks and woolotis aro lovoly little
jeweled affairs closoly resembhug tho
real gems. On somo of tho now gowns
aud wraps tho buttous aro vory largo
Ostrich fcnthors aro always popnlar
in tlio winter millinory, and thoy will
bo tho trimming par oxcollonco for
picturesquo hats for dress occasions.
But flowors and foliago will not bo
uttorly discarded. Hats especially ap
propriato for fall aro of autumu loavos
with fplds of velvet of hariuouizing

oak leaves in tho vnrious tiuts of
brown nnd dull red has a broad bow

shades nt tho back. Somo of tho now
shaggy 4'elt hats aro trimmed with
llowors of sliaded volvet. Tho vogue
of tho" parrot shados," as thoy aro
popularly called, will not pass witii
tho summor. Exquisito efl'ects in
plumago for antumn hats aro achioved
ln tho combination of vivid groon and
brilliant bluo. Boston Reeord.
Is thoro is nnyono who cnn oxplain
why niuo out of overy tou womou of
tlio day cnrry tho trains of thoir
gowns ns thoy do? Thoro is sueh n
ourious siniilarity in tlio way thoy
grasp thoir skirts tlmt ono rnight
nlmost think thoro wns a school to
toaoh tho progross Tho modus opor
nndi is ns follows : Tho skirt is flrtnly
grasped with tho hand nnd drngged
tightly nround tho hody, allowing ou
ono Bido nbont tlireo inohosof material
to swoop tho dnst, whilo ou tlio
othor at lonst tlireo liiehes cf hosierv
is displayed. This xm-thod 1h open t6
objectiou ou many scores. It is not
graceful, it is not thorough, aud it
is not modest. It does not nccomp
lish tho object for whioh it started
out, if that ob,1rct wns really to
gathor tho folds of ono's costumcs off
tho pavomont nnd not to show one's
good looking shoes and sllk stockiiigs.
Tliero havo been prettlor fads than
this, that's sure, but it seems so
unnnimoiis a fad all ovor tho conntry
and particularly at seashoro rosorts
that thoro seftns little hopo it will
