Huttlo, Director, i. C. Experi ment Station. Advanced Moulhly .Summary of Meteoro loglral Iieorl for Norllt Carolina, March, 1X94. The North Carolina State Weather Service issues tlie following advanced summary of the weather for March, 18S4. as compared with the correspond ing month of previous years: The past winter has been a milrl one in North Carolina, The month of .Ian nary was throe degrees above the nor mal in temperature, and February only" half a degree below. The rain-fall was detictent in January and March, and about half an inch above tlie normal in lfcbrupry. The conditions w ere gene rally favorable for farm work. The weather during March was very unfor tunate for agricultural interests. Erom the 1st to the "lith the temperature averaged twelve degrees per day above the normal, reaching on the -'2nd a maximum of VI degrees at Southern Fines, and 89 at many other places; temperatures sohijrh were never before recorded in North Carolina during March. Vegetation was pushed from two to three weeks in advance of sea son. The severe freeze of March -'7th, and 28th, consequently did enormous damage everywhere. Undoubtedly the peach crop is ruined, but there will be a small yield of other fruits, especially apples. Gimm also were badly dam aged, but will arrow out again, produc ing something like half a crop. A good many strawberries were saved by cov ering. as were also some potatoes in the Pimples, Blotches and Old Sores Catarrh, Malaria and Kidney Troubles Are entirely removed by P.P.P - Prickly Ash.

Experiment Stat ion. North Carolina Meekly Weather Crop Itulletta. The first crop bulletin of the State Weather Service of the X. C. AgKicul tural Experiment Station, co-operating with the U. S. Weather Ilureau, was issued from the central office in Raleigh April 9th. It is mailed on Monday, covering the previous week, to all news papers ot the State in time. to reach the papers just going to to press. There are now over 300 correspondents loca ted in every one of tUe 0l counties, suf ficient to give very accurate summaries of the effcot of the weather upon the crops as to ruin-fall and temperature, and the general condition of the staple crops, trucking crop, fruit industry, etc, in various sections of the State. To facilitate comparison the State is divi ded into the eastern district, central, and western. The bulletins will be continued each week during the grow hig season, ending about October and will be sent free to applicants who after reading them, will agree to post the bulletin in a aouspiouous place. Spraying Orchards and Vineyards. The general destruction of the fruit crop this year by the March freeze will make fancy prices for those who have been able to save a part of their crops, winie the iruit buds ot peaches, plum and blackberries are nearly all destroy ed, of grapes we may still expect from 1-3 to 1-2 an average crop, and of late apples and European pears a nearly full erop. Many fruit growers will be discour aged and think it not worth while to iitrht fungi and insects this year. This is very unwise etren where there is no prospect of fruit for the present year, If these pests are allowed to multiply and spread without hindrance this year tney may get such a firm foothold in an orchard or vineyard that it may take years to dislodge them. The more ten der kinds of trees and vines are more or less enfeebled by the frost and these will be attacked with special virulence by the pests. Unless aid is triven bv the owner the pests may completely destroy tne attacked plants this season 1 lie only sale plan is to start the snrav er as usual and keep it going as long as any signs ol noxious insects or fungi appear, run directions for spraying iruit trees ana vines are ctven in Hulle tin of the North Carolina Experiment station which is sent free to residents of the State and to non-residents who send 10 cents in stamps. Gerald Me- C arthy Botanist, N. C Experiment Sta tion. Dehorning t'attla or Calves. This is a humane practice wherever a number of. animals are to be kent to gether. There is always more or less friction between different animals and the stronger are inclined to crowd and hook the weak or fight among them selves for the mastery. Dehorninjr not only checks this in part, but it prevents personal harm being done to some ani mals, while it frees the majority from the fear of tha master animals in the herd. We have Buccessfully used the de horning clipper made by the LeaTitt M f g Co., Hammond, 111. This is a safe rapid method, and for adult animals no one wants a more rapid way of remov- ing norns. rso narm results to the am mal. We have taken off horns during warm weather and in early winter with uniformly good results. No applica tion aiier removing tne nornsin needed though if m warm weather and there is fear of flies, a little carbolic acid may be sprinkled over the stub and surround ing hair to keep them away by its strong Bine ii. If it is desired to prevent horns crow ing in young- animals, hair can be clip ped from the point where the horn is about to appear, and the horn stopped oy ine nse ot a little caustic potash. Take a dry stick of potash and touch to water, then rub on the little protuber ance where the horn is coming. Re peat a few tunes and the horn is killed. It has been known and recommended in bulletins and the public press for some time and belongs to the people if there is any value it. Recently we have beeu enjoined from using or spreading this information by a company claiming a patent right to sell and make a profit on all caustic potash used for this pur- If any of our readers wish to use pot ash to stop the growth of calves horns they need fear no evil will come to anyone if they buy the chemi cal from their family druggist, nor that they are infringing on any one else's right any more than to breathe the free air or drink at the roadside spring.

Experiment blat'On-J Ko experiments that we know of have been made in this latitude in the artificial culture of cranberries. Tiny are indigenous to the high valleys of our northwestern counties, but' their suocess in the lower part of the state is problematic). The preparation of a bog for cranberry culture is an expensive matter, more so in fact than for rice culture. The land must be thoroughly ditched so as to drain, and must be at the same time diked, so that it can be overflowed urtilicially, when needed, and protected from overflow at all other tunes. All bushes and all the grass Bod must be cut off and removed, and the surface covered with sand. Cuttings of the vines, made by running them through a feed cutter, are planted in drills and kept well cleaned from all wild growth until they cover the land after which they take care of them selves, excepts as to overflowing and draining.

We had a hundred dwarf pear tress, but they are dying off one by one. J. S. H., Bowman's Bluff. N G. (Answered by Gerald McCarthy, Botanist, N. C Experiment Station.) The disease on both apple and pear trees is the same the so-called fire blight. This is caused by a species of bacteria, micrococcus amylovorous. There is no remedy except destruction of affected parts. The disease is very contagious, and the cutting out must be promptly attended to or it will in fect the whole orchard.

G. i Answered by W. F. Massey, Horticulturist, N. (J. Experiment Station.) First apply the Jfitrate 1-2 at two dressings first as soon as growth ce gins: second when fruit is setting. Second. Always apply in dry weath er when the foliage is dry, never in wet weather. Third. If the leaves are wet with rain or dew it will burn them if applied directly. Best plan is to scatter it on both sides of the row. It dissolves at once on the soil. Fourth. 1'se 100 lbs., per acre, 1-2 at a tim, as suggested. Injury to Acid Phosphate by Marl. Please inform me by return mail whether Marl will injure a. id phosphate or not, if composted together? Will the lime in the marl destroy the acid in the phosphate and leave the phosphoi ic aeld insoluble as thoug:: It had not been treated with acid ornot? ,J. C. M. Resai-a H. C. i Answered by H. B. Battle, Hirector, N. C Experiment Station.) Marl will have a tendency to injure Acid Phosphate. By its contrat with the soluble Phosphoric Acid in the lat ter, it will have a tendency to change it to the reverted Phosphoric Aeld finally to the insoluble, which are not so useful as the soluble form.

YVe espec ially denounce the pemliin.' tariff bill as a .uwaruiy makeliiit tor nmll reform. It not only substitutes I'emocratic protection 101 i.epuuneaii protection on certain matin im-i'ii ai in ics. um aiso strives to iliscniiu- nate aaiii.s! the producers of wealth by put- u:ik u.c iavv inaicriais winch their labor pro duces upon the lrec .ist while it forces them ami every citi.cn lo pay a hi-h Ia. on the manuiaciuieil aiticle. 1 he revenue of the government can and should be raised with out such unjust ami increased discriinina tion. ti. We favor a graduated tax on incomes inai win lax ail incomes, private or corpor ate, ol .5,uou one ier cent., and on all larger iiiwima a proportionate increase so that the -... if I. ,1-fl I I...:-.a x-.i ...........j mil uvui men snare oi tne expenses of the government in proportion to their auimy to pay. il such a law was in force and properly executed, we believe that suf ncieni revenue would he raised from that yinrce ;o enable us to reduce the bunk-ns on uiose in moderate circumstances, now so neavny uixeu, at least one-hall. 7. We favor the enactment of sn.-l. u by Congress as shall effectually prevent the dealing in futures of all agricultural ami mechanical productions. We do not believe that the bill now pending before Corgress is stinicient to remedy the evil. s. That when the State and National plat form come in conflict, our Representatives in Congress shall be bound by the State platform. y. That we are unalterably opposed to the pcii-n.scuoua emigration OI loreiLOicrs into mis country, and tavor stringent .National legislation to scrutinize, regulne and con- L"c aaiuc, so as lO CXCllllie IlOIll OUT shores the vicious, corrupt and degraded ciass oi emigrants. iu. We are in favor of electing Tinted States ."senators by a direct vote of the pOOjllti. 11. We deplore the existence of condi tions which lid aland oi over-product ion" with enforced idleness, destitution, and law lessness. These arc the legitimate fruits of Republican und Democratic lualailiniiiistra tion, betrayal of popular confidence, and perversion of tlie people's government to the use and advantage of a destructive money trust and to other monopolies. We sympathize with the oppressed everywhere; but we are opposed to all lawless combinations of men whether representing capital or labor. We believe in peace and strict obedience to law We are opposed to strikes as tetidimr to infrac tions of the law as wrong in principle and condemn them as we do the unlawlul and unprosecuted combinations of capital against which they contend. We ur-e upon labor the wise use of the ballot as tlie only leaceable solution of the grave conditions that confronts our social progress, condition which cannot he conver-ed into social peace exceiit on the basis of social righteousness. 12. For thiitv years riotous living, de bauchery and shameless disregard for the rights of theiHjople has been the rule rather than the exception at Washington. The present administration, the present Senate and Congress, seem to be composed largely of men who are outstripping their predeces sors. Some of them are old-timers and their new associates have caught the infection liie money power, whiskey, sugar, and other monopolies are represented in the Cab inet and in both Houses of Congress U present we have a government o for and by trusts and monopolies. In striking con trast to the above we point with pride io the clean records made by our little baud of 1 eople s party Senators and Congressmen Always at the post of duty, never arrested to make a ijuoruui, unselfish, fearless incor ruptible, like true Spartans they have stood by their pledges to a man. With this record in our lavor we assert that "honesty in pol itics is not an iridescent dream," ami can in vite all who earnestly desire good govern ment to leave their monopoly-ridden parties and help us to lill our National Legislative halls with honest statesmen. 13. We favor the running of tlie public SCllOO.S of our State at Iciest four mn,, i, ;.. each year as required by our Constitution ior both races, m order that the blessings of education may be extended to all the people of our State alike. 14, We condemn the Democratic admin istration of North Carolina for its fail 11 rt ts bxecnte the anti-trust laws now on our stat ute books, also for the fadure to prosecute the officers of broken hunts i).T...,..ri, ,. i fmollllts of both public and private 'funds iav,e "'l1 lost,a'ul w citizens, widows and ""n-aaiic aim uisiioncsty, iar"e llae L,tn;" '"""e to suiter. 10. we tavor the pstaiiiihi,.i niaiiiuLioii ior me reformation of young criminals). , ,18-.

We condemn the election methods resorted to in certain counties and precincts of other counties in the election of lW con cocted and executed hy the Democratic' ma chine of the State, by which thousands of Citizens who had voted for years under t he same registration were deprived of their suf frage by which ballots of the People's party after being delivered to pel! holders to be properly deposited were destroyed in "bull pens and other tlark hole voting placjs and ballots for the I)emn,r..t; ... c.t,. ........ ...... , , " i.l ui a substituted; by which false returns were i "i nicu county canvassing boards with autocratic iwer, threw out many townships which gave majorities for the People s party, to such an extent as to mu in power a minority party.
