Come on, Willard. Meatus News. I Cive to the Red Cross Peach-leaf curl is one of the com monest diseases of the peach. It is characteristic in its appearance, and shows up strikingly during May. The disease ' really appears early in the spring wnen tne leaves begin to ap pear. The young leaves become curled or towed, 'ihe leaf blade is thickened in certain parts and this causes curl ing of the leaf. The thickened areas become vnllnwish with n ti and a little later, the leaves become quite brittle and show a silvery bloom on the upper surface. The curling may be confined to a small area or the whole leaf may be affected. The leaves finally die and drop from the tree. In serious infections the tree may be practically defoliated and the new buds begin to develop and form a new set of leaves during the summer. The twigs also are affected to a cer tain extent. They arc somewhat swol en and stunted. The disease is serious because of the loss of the leaves in the snrinir. This results in forcing a second growth of leaves ine same season and a loss of vitality to the tree. Killing of the iwigs is also damaging. Peach-leaf curl is caused by a fun gus. The full life history of the fun gus is not fully known and the time or intection still remains unsolved it is probable, however, that the spores produced on the diseased leaves in tne late spring remain dur ing the summer on or beneath the huH scales and the .next spring the spores germinate on the young leaves and nujurent tissues. Arter curl appears on the ' trees, iuuiiiiK can do aono to prevent dam age at that time. It is of no use to spray witn anv lumricide. The num. -er should know, however, whether the disease occurs and take proper steps w cumroi it ounng tne winter and very early serine. The disenne ran be prevented by spraying the tree iate in me winter betore the buds be gin to swell in the spring. A thor ough spraying with the fungicide at thut time is recommended by the University of Missouri College of Ag riculture in controlling the disease. Any good fungicide, such as Bordeaux mixture, or lime sulphur, is effective. Perhaps the best method is to use commercial lime sulphur, about one part to eicht parts of wnter. This will also be effective acainst S:in .Ins. scale it that is present. - Give to the Red Cross STATE COULD SAVE 251,832,420 LBS.

This milk could make 138,-e3,132 pounds oi cottaee cheese on the hasis. of 15 pounds of cheese to 100 pounds or milk. Ihis amount of cottage cneese is equivalent in protein value to 251,823,420 pounds of beef. If the cottage cheese coold be manufactured and would be consumed without waste, it would be equivalent, from the view point of food production, to an in crease of 475,138 head of beef cattle, or approximately 27 per cent increase over the number of beef cattle in Mis souri in 1910. The value of the beef at 30 cents a pound that could be saved by substi tuting cottage cheese made from the skim milk would be $75,547,026. these hgures were taken from data com piled by the United States Denartment of Agriculture to further the manu facture and consumption of cottage cheese. Mrs. E. H. Hughes, who is stationed in the University of Mis souri College of Agriculture, has been assigned to Missouri as a special agent of the department in cottage cheese work.
