FUNSUS LIVES IN THE SOIL four Varieties Have Been Developed Which Will Produce Heavy Crops of Excellent Fruit on Soil Badly Infested. • Prepared by the United States Department pf Agriculture.) The only successful means of con trolling tomato wilt is through the de velopment of resistant varieties, says the United States Department of Agri culture. Tomato wilt causes an an nual loss of more than 115.000 tons of tomatoes in the Middle Atlantic, Gulf and lower Mississippi states. The wilt fungus lives In the soil and In vades the tomato plant through its roots. Spraying the plant- has no ef fect on the disease, and no important results have been obtained in the con trol of the trouble through soil treat ment. Varieties Developed. Four varieties of tomatoes have been developed which will produce heavy crops of excellent fruit on hind so badly infested by wilt that ordinary tomatoes cannot be grown upon It. 'jjjß Excellent Wilt-Resistant Type of To matoes. They are selection* from the Greater Baltimore, Stone and Merveille des Marches (Marvel of the Market), three of the best commercial varieties grown. They possess, in addition to wilt resistance, all the good qualities of their parent varieties. Extensive field tests have shown them to be well adapted to all parts of the United States in which tomato wilt is present. The work dime in connection with the development nf these varieties is de scribed in a new department bulletin. No. 1015, Development of Wilt-Re sistant Tomatoes, by F. J. Pritchard, physiologist, which may be obtained upon application to the United States Department of Agriculture, Washing ton. Very few commercial varieties of tomatoes possess appreciable resist ance to wilt. The Duke of York and the Buckeye State, apparently one va riety under two names, are highly re sistant, but they produce poorer fruit than the varieties developed by the department. Livingston’s Globe is somewhat re sistant. but its fruit, although of good size and shape, is objectionable to canners and also to dealers in some other* markets because of its purple color. Moreover, It Is very susceptible to nailiiead rot, a destructive disease prevalent in the South. Obtain Resistant Varieties. Superior wilt-resistant varieties may be obtained by selection from varieties that normally produce a heavy crop of excellent fruit, and vary considerably in the degree of wilt re sistance possessed by their individual plants. Even If such varieties are sus ceptible to wilt, if they produce occa sional resistant plants, they afford good material for selection, but the se lections have to be carefully tested on uniformly wilt-infested soil for a period of several years In order to ob tain the best strains or varieties —a process requiring more time, skill and expense than the average grower can give to it. Most varieties transmit ap proximately the same degree of wiit resistance to all their plants and con sequently offer little opportunity for Improvement by selection. Tomato plants selected for wilt resistance usually transmit to their immediate offspring as much resistance as can be developed from them by subsequent selection. In a few instances Increased resistance lias been obtained in the second selection, hut not In later se lections.

Growth Has Been Most Marked in Sections Which Have Made Great est Progress—No Cause for Alarm, Says Bulletin. (Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) While the increase in furin mort gage indebtedness during the last dec ade appears almost startling, the increase is not in Itself a cause for alarm, declares the United States Department' of Agriculture in De partment Bulletin 1047, Farm Mort gage Loans by Banks, Insurance Companies, and Otho Agencies, a new publication prepared by V. N. V’algren and Elmer E. Engelbert and now ready for distribution. The in crease, say the writers, is rather a logical result of increased market value of farms. The rise in these values, in turn, reflects better farm incomes during the decade than pre vailed during the preceding years, these incomes being to a considerable extent invested in added permanent improvements in the form of build ings, fences, silos, and drainage and irrigation systems. According to pre liminary reports for the census of 1920, mortgage indebtedness on farms operated by full owners amounted to $4,012,711,213, as against $1,726,172,- 851 In 1910. The information avail able concerning the amount and sources of farm mortgage loans in the United States is fragmentary, the bulletin points out. A very large percentage of farm mortgages is the result of land trans fers, the mortgage, like tenancy, form ing a rung in the agricultural ladder to farm ownership. The size of the mortgage naturally tends to bear a direct relationship to the purchase price of the farm. To the extent I that farm mortgages are the result of investments in productive pernia , nent improvements and equipment by 1 existing farm owners, they evidence i progress and not regression. In gen [ eral. the increase in farm mortgages during each decade since data were first gathered by the census has been most marked in sections which have mane the greatest progress during that period. Even where improve ments are paid for out of savings in stead of with the proceeds of loans, the increased value and price of a farm is quite certain to result in a larger mortgage in case the farm is transferred to a new owner.

A hoe or spade left overnight in the garden is sure to be rusted and in poor condition for use. Garden tools not in use should be placed upright against the fence or house. At night they should be placed indoors. SILAGE NOT EXPENSIVE FEED It Is Cheap When Compared With Oth er Roughages Which Are Higher Than Grain. Although many farmers believe that silage is an expensive feed, especially when the work in producing it is con sidered, is a cheap feed, as compared to other roughages which are higher than grains this season. When corn was high many farmers used silage because they could save corn. ROTATION URGED IN GARDENS Farmer Should Avoid Planting Same Crop on Same Land for Two or More Seasons. Remember that it is Just as neces sary to rotate for garden crops as for field crops; therefore, in the manage ment of the garden keep this fact In mind and avoid planting the same crop on the same land two or more sea sons. WYOMING STATE NEWS (Western Newspaper Union New» Santcn.) The enrollment for the six weeks in tra-session of the University of Wyo ning has reached 96.

Marston of Buffalo, Johnson county, that about 350,000 pounds of wool not yet shorn, and part of a pool of about a million pounds offered at a sealed bid sale in March, for which there was no offer, had been sold to B.

Anna Richey, who was convicted of cattle rustling two years ago and who was recently ordered commuted to the penitentiary by the State Supreme Court in July to begin serving sentence was found dead on her ranch, twelve miles north of Kemmerer, and Otto Palzenberger, a ranch hand, was rushed to a hospital at Kemmerer suf fering from convulsions. Both had been poisoned. Colorado coal, tlie first placed on the market in many years in Casper, is being retailed in relieving a coal short age caused by the mine tieup in Wyo ming. It is one tiling to refuse to work in a property, but quite another tiling to stand Idly by while the property is be ing destroyed, a fact demonstrated by the action of striking coal miners at Almy, near Evanston, when fire broke out in a lower level of mine No. 3. which had been idle since the strike be gan April 1. The strikers promptly volunteered to tlie mine management to risk their lives by entering the mine to fight the blaze and combated it ef fectually.
