Souf Scab Attacks Sweet Orange.
The sour scab seems to bo adapt
ing itself to new hosts. The latest
addition to the citrus fruits attack
ed by the pest is the sweet orange
which was thought to be immune. II.
E. Stevens, plant pathologist to the
University of Florida Experiment
Station, received specimens, last
spring, of sweet seedlings which were
infected with the disease. It was
thought then that some mistake had
been made in the seedlings and furth
er developments were awaited. The
seedlings were sent from Bulow, Fla.
Mr. Stevens received specimens of
sweet orange fruits recently which
were attacked bv scab. These came
from Palmetto, Fla. Scab has appar
ently adapted itself to this new host.
Infestations should be destroyed as
soon as they are noticed. This may
be a variety which is adapting itself
to the sweet orange and if it is dcs
stroyed may not reappear.
The ability of scab to adapt itseli
to new hosts is well known. It was
probably introduced from Japan on
the satsuma. Until a few years ago
, it attacked only a few citrus fruits,
nmone which were the sour orange,
the satSama and rough lemon. A re
port from the Florida Station in 18v'j
shows that sweet oranges, kumquats,
tangerines, mandarins, the king or
ange, grapefruit and shaddock were
nearly or quite exempt. Even in
191 the grapefruit was rarely at
tacked. Now it is severely attacked.
Within the last year reports show
that scab has adapted itself to the
' sweet orange. Agricultural ewa

Citrus Trees Should Be Planted in
The best time to plant citrus trees

(trees are as nearly dormant as they
will be and consequently a-better
j stand can be had. W. L. Floyd, pro
cessor of horticulture in the Universi
ty of Florida College of Agriculture,
! advises that the land which is to be
planted to the citrus grove should
have been cultivated a year or two in
some field crop. New land usually
contains enough roots and sprouts to
interfere with the growth and culti
vation of the young trees.
The land should be as well prepared
as for a field crop. Plow the weeds
and grass under and work the land
down with a disk and spike tooth har
row. The trees should be from one
to two years old on two to four-year-old
Set the trees just as deep as they
stood in the nursery. Prune off all
broken roots and make the hole large
enough that roots may be placed in
without bending. Fill the earth in
around the roots and press firmly.
The tops should be cut back to about
24 inches from the ground. This is
the first step toward the low headed
tree which is best for Florida condi
tions. If there are any long branches
trim to about three buds. Agricultur

Popular Young Lady Married.
Miss Jessie Harrison Burton,
daughter of Maj. and Mrs. J. L. Bur
ton of this place, and well-known as
the Putnam county agent of the Girls'
Gardening and Canning Clubs, was
united in marriage on Wednesday af
ternoon to Mr. Herman Dane Collette
The News is not informed as to the
details of the wedding, except that
the ceremony was performed by Rev.
R. Shull Burris, pastor of the Presby
terian church. It is presumed, how
ever, in the absence of announce
ments, together with the well-known
wishes of the bride to shun display,
that the wedding was a simple, quiet
affair, and that the vows were pro
nounced at the Burton home, with
none but the family and a few inti
mate friends present.
The happy couple left the same af
ternoon for Summer Haven, where
the Burtons have a cottage. They
will remain there until Sunday when
they will return to Palatka to make

and the best wishes of all our people

They Are Always Struck From New
and Specially Prepared Dies.
Froof coins have been struck nt the
Philadelphia mint for many years, but
at no other mint, to be sold to collec
tors. A premium of about 10 per cent
Is charged wheu a lot includes coins
of all iloiioniiimtions. For minor proof
sets, however, when ordered separate
ly, a little uioru than double the face
value is charged.
The coins are struck from new and
specially prepared dies on plane-beta
previously bun.ished, a hand press In
stead of the regular steam press belns
used. When there is a smooth Held
around the raised portion of a coin the
burnishing yives the surface a lusting
brilliancy that is very attractive.
Our silver coins still have such a
field, but the gold coins, particularly
the $.j and $2.50 pieces, and Hie minor
coins no longer present this desirable
feature, lu fact, outside of the lines
belug a little finer, proofs of these
coins differ little in appearance from
pieces struck for regular circulation.
The incused Inscriptions on the gold
coins do not uuraonize with the Held
as did the old raised Inscriptions, while
on the minor coins the field Is not
smooth, and the nickel has really no
field, an excess of lettering disfiguring
what is not monopolized by the Iudian
bead and the buffalo. The $20 and ?10
pieces present artistic designs, but
proofs of these coins are far from be
ing as attractive as were those of the
old designs. Pittsburgh Press.
