NEWS AND CITIZEN, THURSDAY, JULY ir, 1894. SPRAYINQ POTATOES. . I'OIXTS OK IXTKUKST KHOM THE STATE EXI'EWMKNT STATION. So many are inquiring about tpray ing potatoes for blight that it seems !eet to issue another circular letter . giving directions for the use of Bor . deaux mixture. We are satisfied af- ter five years' experience that it pays to sprny all potatoes in Vermont . with this uiixtuiv. Our potato vius jhp nttnckptl by two distinct blights. Therm l Might attacks earlier potatoes, gptvmJunr elowly in July and August, causing , premature death ol vines, but no rot. The late blight attacks later potatoes in August and September, spreading rapidly in warm, moint weather, and is followed by rot. The. tarly blight is a complex trouble caused by the attacks of insects as well as fungi. It is already appearing on early pota toes. Being a complicated disease, it is less perfectly controlled by spray ing than is the late blight. Our re sults last summer showed that it can be at least partially checked by Bor deaux mixture. The late blight and rot is a fungous disease, and Bor deaux mixture properly applied is an almost perfect remedy. By its use we have invariably kept our later po tatoes alive through September and have lost but very few from rot. The result has been that our yield of later Eotat oes has been more than doubled y spraying. Every potato grower should try it this summer, especially on medium and late potatoes. The formula for Bordeaux mixture is: Five pounds copper sulphate, 5 pounds lime (must be fresh, not air elacked), 50 gallons (1 barrel) water. Dissolve the copper sulphate in clean - wooden or brass vessel, slack the lime . in another vessel, then dilufe with water to a thin whitewash and strain 1 it into the copptrsolution. Stirthor- - oughly and add water to makeabout .. jO gallons (1 barrel). The following suggestions prove of use: may 1. Keep the mixture clean. Chips, lumps of lime, etc., in the mixture, will clog pump or nozzles. Therefore, thoroughly clean all vessels to begin with. Strain all water and copper solutions through cheese cloth unless they are perfectly clean. Strain the lime whitewash through some courser cloth or sieve and throw away all the -dregs and lumps. 2. To dissolve blue vitrol. It may be quickly dissolved in water by heat ing in a braes kettle to the boiling point, or by pouring boiling water over it. The most convenient way wehave found, however, is to dissolve , in cold water byputtinerit in acoarse , sack and suspending this in the top of a tub or barrel of water. As fast . -as the heavy solution forms it settles to the bottom and fresh water rises. By using a gallon of water for each pound of blue vitrol it will dissolve in a few hours in this way. - 3. Keep a stock solution. We find it most convenient to dissolve con siderable blue vitrol at a time in the above manner, nd keep it on hand " in a covered barrel. We put in a pound of vitrol for each gallon of water, and as we wish it from time to - time we simply stir it up and dip out as many gallons of water of the solu tion as we wish to use pounds of blue .vitrol. 4. Other convenient methods. To M iU i.,u. f i.: il. ttVUlU LUC UUUUif J1 Vt?l!UILlfJ, Mie blue vitrol may be measured out (5 pounds equals 2 quarts), and the .lime added by test. This test con sists in pouring a few drops of solu tion of ferro-cyanide of potassium (1 ua. 111 jtA. naici j iulu luv UJiALure. If there is not enough lime in the .mixture Hhis solution will at once vimrn brick-red, but if enough lime has been added there will be no change of color. T. Caution. Strong copper sulphate solution alone will kill the leaves. Freshly slaked lime neutralizes the sulphate and prevents this caustic action. If not sure that the lime is fresh or good, or that enough is add ed, the mixture should be tested as described in 4, or a few plants only should be sprayed at first to test its action. C. Potato Beetles. Bordeaux mix ture alone will not kill potato bugs. Add Paris green when needed at rate pound to 50 gallons. . 7. When to spray. Remember that "Bordeaux mixture is a preventive, - not a cure, and the first application should be made before the diseaseap pears. The following dates for spray- ' ing potatoes are based on ourexperU ence at Burlington : Early potatoes planted April to May 5, spray about July 1, 15, August 1, aud again if needed. Medium potatoes planted May 5 to 15, spray about July 15, Aug. 1, 15, and again if needed. Late potatoes planted May 15 or later, - spray about August 1, 14, 28, and again if needed. ! 8. How to apply it. The mixture . may be put on in any way so as to . cover the surface of all the leaves. "The best way to do this is with a rforce pump which has good spraying mozzles attached. Unfortunately, but ( few have these pumps. Applying with a common watering pot or with 1 a pil "id a broom or wisp of hay takes more time and patience, as well : as more of the mixture, but if thor oughly done will give good results. In most cases where a watering pot is used it will work better if the holes : in the rose are enlarged with an awl Applv thoroughly it will not miure the vines, providing the mixture has been properly made. Further information will be freely given in answer to any letters of in , -quiry. L. R. Jones, Botanist, Experiment Station, Burlington. Why Artificially Diiestel Fool Improves the Appetite. Recent l'rogress in the Treatment o Dyspepsia. Wbn you Mallow a mouthful of pi-di-jrle. food, urh as I'akola, it i at once NlMirlM-l and thu leari t be atomach empty.

Not onW ia it a fattening and health-giving food in itaelf, but it aid tbe digeation ol other food. Aa a coowquence one will find h.maelf able to eat more heartily and of greater Ta riety than was previously possible. Food is the natural cure for diseaaea at tended by thinness and loea of weight. Drugs and tonics will not answer. Tbe good results followiug the use of 1'askola are so immediate that no one who has tried it baa any doubt that it is I'askola that did it. I'askola is pleasant to tbe taste and needs no cooking. It has solved the problems pre sented to physicians who have known that nourishment was the only cure for the de rangements of the digestive organs. Nour ish tbe system and it will throw off disease fur more effectually than device of man. One grateful user of this new product writes as follows : "About six weeka ago, through readiug one of your pamphlets, 1 began to use Pas kola lor indigestion. 1 firmly believe it bus given me more relief than anything I have ever used and I have certainly used pretty much everything that has been recommended for the past five years. I have gained six pounds in flct.li and feel better in health and spirits than 1 have for vears. Mas. Ohas K. Lothian, 111 West 45th Bt., N. Y."
