South Dakota will have an enviable opportunity this fall to show to ihn world Juki what she is and whriI she can produce. South Dakota just, now is in the favored belt of prosperity.

Breeders of Hve-stock especially ought to win large premiums on account of the restrictions placed against live-stock from other states. Agricultural Hall as usual will be jammed to the doors with agricul tural and Industrial exhibits. Already more counties than over before in the history of the fair have written to Secretary Mel lvalue assuring him that they will need exhibition space. The State College of Agriculture at Urookings will 1111 the entire South wing with an instructive scientific display. The State University and the Türe Food department will occupy part of the West wing. The Indians will for the first time put on a magni ficent display in the west half of the Horticultural building.

Recent ly he editor of a northwestern farm paper was asked "Is the Stute Fair a good place to select breeding slock?:" The editor's reply Is significant: "1 should say that, the State Fair or any fair is a good place to go and select breeding stock. 11 is a good policy to lie very careful and not buy animals that, have been pampered or evcrfed, but what you can see in that short time it would take days and much money to see. You can also make comparisons between ani mals belonging to different breeders. To-day, fair exhibitors are taking along some stock for sale purposes at the fair, and these are usually in just breeding condition, lireeders of note are reliable and if you like indi viduals seen at the fair th. will se lect animals of the same breeding and individuality from the herd at home."

Commenting on his experience with soldiers. Professor Osier says that trench warfare Is evidently a "nerve racking business," causing all sorts of troubles from simple nervous break down to severe functional disorders, "In many cases tobacco Is a factor. The hardened veteran may smoke from twenty to thirty cigarettes cattle Where silage Is left ov.*r and is being fed during warm weather the use of tarpaulin on the surface of the silage will save some spoiling. Silage can be fed from one half of tlK* silo at a time. The purpose of the tarpaulin Is to ex- 8IB WILLIAM OSLKIt. without inconvenience, but the unsea soned soldier cannot stand such excess. Among the convalescents many cases of rapid pulse and slight anemia are, I believe, due to tobacco." (?as poisoning Is spoken of also. The high explosive shells, the hand grenades and shrapnel all do great damage, but none of them is quite so frightful as the deadly gases. Victims of gas poisoning do not always die at once, but drag out a lingering and painful death, caused by a suffocative swelling in the lungs. Professor Osier has seen thirty eases, of which number only three were very severe. "The other patients," he says, "were convalescent. and nothing amiss could be determined on physical ex nmination. but in several eases there was functional disability. One man had suppression of the breath sounds neither the inspiratory or expiratory murmurs could be heard distinctly, Anatomically, il is an acute bronchitis. The gas appears to be chlorine. Masks saturated with solutions of sodium by perchlorine. with glycerin to keep the material moist, appear to be an effi cient protect ion. Certainly the gas Is a great addition to the frightfulness of war." A WAR TIME HYMNAL Was Lost on Battlefield of Pcachtree Creek.

DISEASES OF NURSERY STOCK. Prt'i: ift Ail- Losses Caused by Various Plant ments Are Sometimes Heavy. hy Xrw York Stat«: O.llvue of Agriculture. The losses in nursery stock caused by various plant diseases are sometimes very heavy, firy bliulit, fyi' v^rn^le, will destroy all the SIOCK attacked un less it is eradicated by cutting out the affected parts of the plants. Some other diseases affect the leaves only, and lo calising them to fall prematurely pre vent the normal growth and develop ment of the plants. Methods of control which are effective on larger trees and bushes cannot be used in the nursery, and. on the other hand, met ho \s umM in the nursery are of no service for mature plants. 1'i.r this reason, a spe cial study of I he principal leaf disease of nursery stock has been made at the Cornell university agricultural experi ment station, and its results are given in a bulletin Just issued. Nursery apple stock Is liable to at tack by scab and powdery mildew pear stock, to attack by scab, leaf blight, and leaf spot cherry and plum, to yellow leaf disease, and hi former to powdery mildew as well, currant and gooseberry stock may be attacked by anthracnose and leaf spot, and the latter by mildew also peach Is subject to peach leaf curl, some varieties ap parently being more susceptible than others, and quince is subject to leaf blight. In addition to this fruit stock, many liore chestnut trees In nurseries are greatly injured by leaf blotch, and nursery rosebushes are subject to blaek spot and mildew. Place to Feed Chicks.

DISPLAY ABILITY Some Believe That the Emden' Orient Investigators Find Many Can Bs Repaired. ISLANDERS WERE FOOLED. Treated Germans to Liquor and Cigars. Captain von Muller Says He Knew From the Start That He Was Out classed and Tried In Vain to Run Vntil recently it has been considered that the Kmden, the German raider wrecked by the Australian cruiser Syd ney last November, would never again be lit for anything except as a relic or scrap In-n. Hut. now there appears to be a possibility of her becoming a unit in the Australian navy. Some experi enced mariners who have visited her since she was beached and burned by tin? Sydney's broadsides believe thai Captain von idler's vessel can be re floated. On the other hand, however, navy men who boarded the hulk to se cure relics for the Australian govern ment reported thai it was hard and fast on the reel's in the Cocos group and that if pulled back into deep water it would sink. This conflict In opinion will not be settled until government salvers get to work. Already several offers have been re ceived by the naval board, and one Australian engineering firm has ex pressed confidence that it can patch up the vessel's bottom and slide her off the sand and coral. The Sydney Is said not to have holed her below the water line. If it is a fact her hull should be in fairly good condition. The flames damaged her machinery, but not so badly as to make it utterly with out use. The ltritish warship Cadmus, which visited the Kmden from Singapore, re ports that eight big guns are yet on board and that a great deal of good metal can be salved. Another report stated that tin? hull had been moving backward and forward and swinging I slightly upon her sand bed, but when the naval authorities here cabled to Cocos island to ascertain whether the wreck was still there the answer came back, "Hard and fast." How He Fooled Islanders. A man who hay reached West Aus tralia en route to Melbourne find who owing h) circumstances involving the question of his nationality was in terned for four months at Malta wilh Captain von Muller and several other officers of the Minden, heard Von Mul ler describe gleefully how he fooled P.rit ish representative on hiego tarda island, in the Indian ocean. The in habitants arc said to be of French do. scent, but the group belongs to Croat Pritain. When the Finden, the bottom of which was quite foul, readied this isolated spot. I he Germans were greeted by the islanders, headed by an elderly and utterly unsuspecting otlidal. who i.sked Von Muller if there was any thing stirring. The captain replied thai the pope was dead. When asked for his unusual presence at the island Von Muller said that he was taking part in some maneuvers with the ltritish navy. The islanders were very hospitable and treated the Germans to liquor and ci gars. They also helped to give the Fin den the overhauling which she needed. Knew He Was Doomed. This man told of Yon Muller relat ing that on the morning when his ves sel encountered the Sydney he did not at first think that she was an Aus tralian cruiser looking for battle. As soon as he realized the fact he knew his ship's doom was sealed, lie sound ed a warning with the siren to the members of his crew who were ashore and about to wreck the Cocos cable station, and he endeavored to draw the Sydney to close quarters so that he could use torpedoes, but when he found that Captain Glossop could not be tempted thus and was pounding the Finden at long range he decided to run for it. lie soon perceived that the chase could have only one ending, and so he ran his burning vessel ashore. He admitted that the Finden was com pletely outclassed by her adversary, and when he was taken aboard the Sydney, a prisoner of war, it was with surprise that he noted that she was damaged so little.
