Red Blood and Courage 1
(NY DR. W. C. LUCAS. )
What drives the men right up to the
trenches in this war is courage, and it's
red blood that "puts the heart" in the
men. Did any one ever see a punv, thin
blooded man ever rush into the fight with
any chance of winning out ? With rich,
pure blood you can face any hardship,
reach any goal. But you are handi
capped in the race of life without it.
Every tissue, bone, muscle, should take
from the blood certain materials and
return to it certain^ others. When the
poisons accumulate in the blood, perhaps
the face breaks out in pimples, or boils
appear on the neck, and we feel languid,
tired, our vitality is at a low ebb, and
we easily catch cold.
It's time to take an alterative extract
and blood-purifier, taken from Nature's
forests. Such a one is made up of

ROOT-KNOT SHOWN ON A COTTON PLANT.
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Root-knot of cotton and other crops
Is caused by minute eelworms, or nema
todes, which bore into the roots and
live there. The irritation of their pres
results in the formation of irregu
lar swellings, or galls, varying in size
from tiny enlargements on the small
roots to knots an inch or more in dia
meter on the large ones.
too small to be seen with
the naked eye, but the females when
full of eggs assume a spherical shape
and may often be distinguished in
pearly bodies half the size of tT small
pinhead. Each female may lay several
hundred eggs, and thus the worms are
roots as glistening
How Root-Knot Is Spread.
Root-knot may be carried from one
field to another by any agency which
will transfer some of the nematodes or
their eggs, in exactly the same manner
that wilt is disseminated. Drainage
water is perhaps one of the most Im
portant means of spreading root-knot.
In addition, a common agency for the
Introduction of the nematode into new
territory Is nursery stock. Seedling
pecans, peaches, figs, mulberries, or
pomegranates, and young asparagus,
cabbage, eggplant, strawberry, tobacco
and tomato plants purchased from in
fested sections may carry the worms in
their roots or in the soil adhering to
them. In the West, where the nema
tode occurs quite commonly on the po
tato, the worms are carried in the
Sandy Soils Most Subject to Root
Root-knot is essentially a disease of
light soils. Although the disease may
occur on heavier soils than wilt, yet It
is not, as a rule, serious on soils con
taining a large proportion of clay. In
general, the lighter the soil the more
severe the root-knot injury. 'The places
of greatest damage are usually light
sandy spots or ridges in infected fields.
In gardens which have been highly fer
tilized with stable manure root-knot is
often very severe.
Root-Knot Attacks Many Farm Crops.
Unlike wilt, root-knot attacks a very
large number of plants, many of which
are important farm crops. Those sub
ject to root-knot injury may be di
vided into two groups, according to
their degree of susceptibility. Some of
the crops most severely attacked by
; root-knot are as follows :
Bean, soy Eggplant
Bean, lima Fig
Clover, bur Pomegranate
Clover, crimson Potato
Cowpea (all varie- Salsify
ties except Iron, Squash
Brabham and Mo- Tobacco
Plants less severely injured by root
knot are the following:
! Clover, sweet
A few common weeds are subject to
nematode Injury and should therefore
be eradicated where the attempt is be
ing made to reduce root-knot in fields.
The most severely Injured are the bal
loon vine, the maypop or passion flow
er, and the papaya or melon pawpaw.
Weeds less severely affected by root
knot are mayweed, purslane and sweet
fennel. - ' .
Some Farm Crops ReHstant to Root
Fortunately, a few farm crops are
largely or entirely immune to root
knot. By employing these in suitable
rotations, nematodes may be starved
out on infested fields, so that suscept

ON A COTTON PLANT.
Ible crops can be grown until the
worms increase sufficiently to cause
damage, when another rotation is nec
The following crops are largely or
entirely Immune to root-knot:
Root-Knot Increased by Most Varieties
Such varieties of cowpeas as the
Whippoorwill, Clay, Black, Unknown,
Red Ripper, New Era, and others are
so susceptible to root-knot that not
•only are they seriously injured, but
the «growing of them on nematode-in
fested fields greatly Increases the num
ber of worms In the soil, and conse
quently the damage to subsequent cot
ton or other susceptible crops. It is
a common complaint of farmers In wilt
sections that the wilt is noticeably
more severe after a crop of cowpea a
of a variety which is susceptible to
root-knot. This is due to the fact that
the nematodes make points of en
trance for the wilt fungus, which then
kills or further Injures the plants. A
few varieties of cowpeas are highly re
sistant to nematodes, including the
Iron, Brabham, and Monetta. These
should be the only cowpeas planted on
land Infested with root-knot.
How to Recognize Cotton Root-Knot.
The detection of cotton plants affect
ed by root-knot, except by an exam
ination of the roots, is much more dif
ficult than in the case of wilt. Badly
diseased plants are distinctly stunted
but not appreciably deformed, as lu
wilt, and both leaves and stem have a
peculiar sickly yellowish green color.
Measures for the Control of Root-Knot.
The rotation and diversification of
crops are of fundamental Importance
to southern agriculture everywhere
and become absolutely necessary
where the root-knot nematode Is pres
It has 'been repeatedly demonstrated
by many farmers that root-knot can be
controlled by the use of proper crop
The principles on which
Grasses (nearly all)
Flor- Millets (nearly all)
such rotations are based are ( 1 ) the use
of crops immune to nematode attacks
until the nematodes are sufficiently re
duced so that susceptible crops may be
profitably grown and ( 2 ) the eradica
tion of all weeds subject to root-knot
The use of crops that will return a
profit and the building up of the fer
tility of the soil are also important con
siderations. Every farmer must work
out for himself the particular rotations
suited to his farm and his type of
If land Is very badly infested with
nematodes as well as wilt, a two-year
three-year rotation with immune
crops is recommended before suscepti
ble crops, including cotton, are grown,
and they should not be grown for rfiore
than one or two years thereafter be
fore the rotation with immune crops
should be repeated. When the infes
tation Is less severe, a one year or two
year rotation will do much to put the
land in condition to grow the crops de
In planning rotations for land in
fested with root-knot, susceptible
crops, such as tobacco, sweet potatoes,
cotton, cantaloupes, okra, and toma
toes should never follow one another.
The damage increases each year so
long as susceptible crops are planted.
If the first crop should escape serions
injury, the nematodes will 'increase in
the aoll to such an extant that the sec
ond crop will be almost sure to . show
•a decided loss. Immune crops should
always be alternated with susceptible
ones and the nematode Injury thereby
reduced to a minimum.
Causes for Scours.
Scours are caused by three things:
filthy quarters, unclean drinking ves
sels and overfeeding. Prevention is
better than a cure.
Keep Boar Thrifty.
The boar should be kept thrifty dur
ing the summer, but should not be.al
lowed to fatten.
Kill Chickens and Eggs.
Rats are great destroyers of chide
.eus and eggs.
