The rapid spread of the disease is jdependent upon certain condition of (moisture and heat. A daily mean or (normal temperature of from 73 degrees t to 74 degrees F. for any considerable jttme, accompanied by moist weather, {furnishes the best conditions for the •pread of the disease. On the other jhand, if the daily mean or normal tem- iperature exceeds 77 degrees for a few days the development of the disease is checked. This fact; explains why the potato blight fungus seldom occurs to any serious extent in section where the mean or normal daily temperature exceeds for any length of time 77 degrees. The macrosporinm disease attacks the leaves and sometimes the stems, but never the tubers. The disease may appear at any time after the plants are from four to six inches high. It progresses slowly, three weeks or more passing before all the leaves succumb. The tubers stop growing as soon as the leaves are attacked. I The effects of potato scab on the itubers are too well known to require de- SWARMING APPARATUS. Description of One of These Valttable 0e • vt<HH, With Imtrnctloiu Jfor Using It. Almost every apiarist has his own pe cnliiw notion aa to how » summering device should be constructed. Some o: these implements are vary ingenious and -valuable assistants ..'daring the swarming season. Their particular use is to remove a swarm after it Jins clusterec and place it in the hive Where it is de sired that the new swarm shall take tip its abode. A tripod apparatus known as Maunm's device is a popular anc practical one. It is simply .a-wire cloth cage fastened to a pole, with two legs so attached to the pole that 'they can be set out or in, something like; a tripod. The lower end of the pole mayr.be sharpened to stick in the ground, in order to steady the catcher and to prevent il from being tipped forward by the weight df the bees. The cage sis 10 by 10 inches square by 1% thick.and is covered on each side with wire cloth. It is made, in two parts and hinged to gether so as to open and close. When closed, it is held together by A small hook. One of the parts of the head is fastened tosthe pole, forming a catcher. The head ie made of seven-eighths by -.three-eighths stuff, hence is very light. Mr. Marmon, who clips his queen'? wings, proceeds to catch a swarm just .coming out by opening the catcher and holding it to the entrance to catch w/hat •cription. The first two diseases are of- iten confounded. Fortunately the bor- deaux mixture is the most effective remedy for both blight and mascroepo- rinm. For the treatment of scab a solution of corrosive sublimate has given best results. This may be prepared by dissolving SJ£ ounces of corrosive sublimate in about 3 gallons of hot water and after an interval of 13 hours diluting with 13 gallons of water. , j For blight and the inaorosporinm disease apply the bordeaux mixture when ^the plants are six inches high, and continuing At intervals of 13 or 14 days until five or six applications have been made. If the season is rainy, it is best j to make the treatments every 10 days, the object being to keep the plants at jail times covered with the fungicide. By adding four ounces of pans green to each barrel of the bordeaux mixture the ] treatments will not only prevent the .disease under consideration, but keep in joheck the Colorado beetle and other insects as well. Before adding the pans green to the bordeaux mixture the for- j»er should be made into a thin paste by 'mixing with a small quantity of water. AFFECTED WITH 1UOB08POBIUM DISEASE. Potato scab has been very successfully prevented by the use of the corrosive sublimate solution, The potatoes to be planted are limply immersed in the •olntiou for 1 % hours, then spread out to dry, out and planted in the usual .manner. A large barrel offers a con- 'Tenieut receptacle for the solution. The potatoes may bo placed in a coarse sack and suspended in the liquid. The corrosive sublimate is very poisonous; therefore it must be used with great care, •ays Professor Galloway in farmers' bulletin No. 16, from which the foregoing ii on abstract. Irrigation of Orchard*. The growth of fruit is destined to be- A great industry upon tho plains. The soil and climate are well adapted to fruit culture. The flavor is flue, the alee of the fruit large, and its appearance very rich and beautiful, but fruit culture cannot be a success without irrigation. It does not take a great deal at water to irrigate an orchard. The (water does not have to be applied fre- fyueutly after the trees once take firm poot, but to mature the fruit irrigation Ii necessary, according to Irrigation { Varmer.

Close it and lay it on the ground near by and watch for the queen. As she comes out, catch and put her in the catcher with the bees. < Now set up the machine in some shady place, if convenient The buzzing of the bees and the scent of the queen will eoon attract the swarm, when all will alight on the catcher. A. I Boot, who doesn't clip his queen's wings, describes U his A B C of Bee Culture a modification of the Marmon device. This modification differs in that he uses a larger wire cloth $ase, one containing several quarts of bees instead of one quart, as in the one described. In a drawing of this modified device No, a represents the wire cloth cage or basket; No. 8, the device in position, receiving the bees as they cluster on the outside of the cage. No, 1 shows the bees after they have clustered and the apiarist in tho act of walking off to the hive. Important Point In Irrigation. An important factor, says Irrigation Farmer, is to put your loud in proper shape before attempting to irrigate. Get it as near level as it is possible to do; then plow a furrow on each side and end of your land, so as to protect the water from going to waste by running off at some low place or places. In many instances it pays better to put in an hour's work on a land of two or three acres in making the sides high enough to save the water, leveling the land with a drag or roller to smooth the surface, so as to allow that portion you wish to irrigate to retain the water. Many times when this is not done the water breaks away from you, and you will work for a half day hard with a shovel to remedy the break, and during this time you have lost enough water to irrigate the entire land. After you have your land in readiness it is necessary to have your distributing ditches in a No. 1 condition and have the bonks high, so there ore no chances of breaks, and have them clean in the bottom, and thus give the water free passage. A Good Manure Trap. Rural New Yorker says that a good manure trap con be made out of nails and boards by almost any one who can hold a hammer. Tho best form is that of an open shed in a pasture. It may be temporary or fixed. Shelter and shade are the bait for these traps. In hot or rainy weather the stock will go there for rest or shelter. The result is that manure accumulates on these spots. It is a first rate plan to put one of those traps on the poorer spots in tho field. That is where you want to catch tho manure.

An Important Legal Battle Has Com* menced ID Chicago. CHICAGO, July 34.—What is considered by labor leaders and their counsel to be one of the most important legal battles in the nation's history was begun in the United States circuit court Monday when President Debs, Vice President Howard, Secretary Keliher and Director Rogers, of the A. B. U., by their attorneys, W. V7. Erwin, «. S. Gregory and A. S. Darrow, filed their answer to the contempt rule issued by the court against them last week, and came themselves into court to make a return to the writ. The defense proposes to carry the case-to the supreme court of the United States in event of an adverse decision here and, if defeated there, to appeal through congress to the people. The policy of the defense will be to question the right and power of the court to issue injunctions like that obtained by the railway companies against Debs and his associates and then imprison those enjoined, if the injunction be violated. It will be contended that what the court has done amounts to an usurpation of power not given to the federal judiciary either by the constitution or the law. Tho defense will follow closely the lines of the report of the Boatner committee of congress which investigated the .injunction and contempt proceedings by Judge Jenkins. Labor organizations throughout the country will contribute money to defray' the expenses of this legal struggle. The American Federation of Labor baa given $1,000. Other associations will follow and the contest will be carried to the bitter end. If the circuit court declares the injunction and contempt method to be good law, congress will be asked, local labor.leaden Bay, to amend the statutes and curb the power of the conrte, and every candidate for congress will be asked to pledge himself for such reform. Berloui Wreck In Texas. TEXAHKANA, Tex., July «4.— Brief reports have reached hero of a serious wreck on the Texas and Pacific near Queen City, Tex., in which the engineer, Express Messenger Fred Marshal, Fireman Allen and the train porter, together with three passengers, whoso mimes are unobtainable, were killed.

NEW YORK, July 24.—Baring, Magoun & Co. shipped tc Europe $500,000 in gold which was engaged at the sub- treasury. This, <with the fl.ftOO.dOO taken from the gold reserve last Friday, reduces it to the lowest point in its history, something over $00,5(IO,OUO. In commenting upon this condition a prominent banker declared that white .there was no use in ttrgi&g another bondiissua until the tariff muddle was straightened out, a serious condition is threatened. It is possible, he said, if the gold reserve fell a few more millions for a combination of capitalists to make heavy loans with the banks, call for bills «nd make such a draft .cm the gold in tho treasury as to force up the price. He did not consider such a thing probable, but it was possible mnless the administration took some action soon. Foreign exchange has gone <ap and further gold shipments are expected this week.

A free trader myself And believing no tax should be levied upon sugar (or anything else) except for revenue, nevertheless as practically every article of general consumption fa to retain protection, I feel no prejudice Againnt'the sugar interest as such and I think a large number of the members of the house entertain the same view. As, however, the sugar trust demands protection, or more properly speaking the taxation of the public for its profit, it should put, before congress and the public Its real condition, BO an intelligent estimate of the merits of its demand may be made. If upon a fair capital it cannot save itself from losses without burdening the taxpayers, then it hag as much justification (and more) for being fed from the public purse by taxation as many industries which we, in passing the Wilson bill, allowed to remain upon the charity list, if, however, its proposition when figured upon an actual cash and unwatered capital stock then you, as a man, may agree with me that you should not have any legislative favors. In such event, a tax of 1 cent per pound upon 100-degree sugar for revenue only would be a fair and equitable one, permitting a reduction of one-one-hundredth of a cent for each degree of sweetness lacking. Such a tax as this, while taking nothing to the treasury of your company, would pour a great/ and the south line of Wisconsin and as for cant as Indiana. Secretary Morton lias appointed 0. L.

Second—What have been the actual profits of the American Sugar Refining company for each full fiscal year since Its organization and what are the profits so far In the current year?

Fourth—What the actual palrt-in cash capital, including the plants turned In at their cash market value, and what is the present surplus fund of the company, including all individual profits? The McKinley bill gives the sugar refiners an opportunity of collecting from the consumer a tax of %c per pound upon all sugar above No. to, Dutch standard, and the consumption of all classes of sugar during the past three fiscal years aggregated 12,956,803,440 pounds, fully 0,000,000,000 of which wan above this limit.

Warner, president of the American Bimetallic league, has issued the following address: "The country has now had a year's experience under the gold!standard policy since tho acts of 1803 closing the mint* of India and the stoppage, of the coinage of silver in the United States. The results of this experience are manifest on every hand in the business depression of the country, in labor strikes and in general discontent everywhere prevailing. Congress will soon complete its work and the general situation and the prospects before the country will theu be fully , disclosed, Some state elections, involving the election of Uuited States senators, have already been entered upon and the campaign fov the election of members of the house of tho Fifty-fourth congress will soon begin. "In view of these conditions tho executive committee of the American Bimetallic league have thought it advisable to call a conference of those who believe that no permanent improvement in the condition of the country can be hoped for as long us the present gold standard policy is pursued, and who favor the Immediate restoration of the bimetallic standard in tho United States with the free coinage of both gold and silver at the ratio of 10 to 1 to he present at Washington, Thursday, Aug. 10, 18U4, to take Into consideration the condition of the country and to decide upon a policy to be pursued to bring about the change in the monetary policy of the government necessary to restore prosperity to the people." _ IN CONGRESS. l*r(«ly OUTLOOK Program for tlio Wvuk Ou III* Turlff I'rublntu.

Witli the tariff bill disposed of the senate will take up the sundry civil and general deficiency appropriation bills if they shall be reported from the committee. These are the only appropriation bills which the senate has not passed Upon. Au effort will be made by the committee to have the sundry civil bill ready to submit to the senate early in the Week, it will carry a large number of changes and is liable to cause considerable debate when taken tip. The program in the house for the present week will depend largely upon the- tariff problem, to which all present arrangements must give way. Tuesday and perhaps Wednesday will be devoted to the consideration of the Moore-Pun- ston contested election case .from the Second Kansas district—in which Moor* claims the election by 1,3(1* votes and. Funston, the sitting member, by 81 votes. The majority of the committee have reported in favor of Moore, and Funston will undoubtedly be unseated, despite the minority report in his favor. The remainder of tjie week will be given to the consideration of bills reported from various committees subject to the decision of the rules committee. Under any rule that is adopted, however, conference reports will have the right of way and should any report be made on the tariff bill, it will receive instant %nd immedintfe consideration to the exclusion of all other legislative matters.

The name of the New Yorker, it is stated, has not been mentioned, except in confidence to one or two of the president's advisers. It is asserted however, that he has accepted and as soon as Judge Trumbull indicates his acceptance the commission will be announced. An Arctic Explorer Dead. HANCOCK. Md.. July 23.
