THE EPFEOTJOP BLIGHT. The Decidedly Narrow Views Talc- en by Director Speer. Capt.R. P. Speer, director of the Iowa experiment station, at Ames, has an article in the last report in which he discusses the effects of blight. He takes a very pessimistic view of oats, especially, living as he does out of the oat region of northern Iowa, and sums up a long statement as follows: From the frequent partial failures of our oat crops on account of rust and the rapid deterioration of good varieties which we have imported >*» IhebesSat ^«--w ft o«^aw no yer Koa 3 Bepublican says if any agent tt was without authority, and 1.60 to them.

Martin to. the cotton commission business. In that he prospered fairly well, and eventually ma ?ried his benefactress. Retiring from the cotton trade he went to New York sometime in the seventies. There he struck in, it seems, with the 'magicians of finance' in the great metropolis, and prosperity has beamed on him ever since. "At the annual election of stockholders of the Central railroad in Savannah Gen. Alexander, the president, voted by proxy 8,700 shares of that stock the m-opbrtyof Adam Dudenheifer, of New York, and that was only a meager portion of his accumulations. The Adam Dudenheifer that lived in pinched circumstances in this county years ago is now the same Dudenheifer that is accounted almost, if not entirely, a milhon. aire in the most populous and wealthiest city in the Union. "His life, so far as vapid money making goes, is a marvelous success, and yet it is but the history of other men.

Next lay the letter or manuscript on this, and if another sheet is to be copied add another oil sheet, a wet cloth, the tissue leaf, and so on for as many sheets as there may be to copy. Bv this process as many as twenty sheets may be copied successfully at the same time, while the most expert with the brush, or any similar device for moistening the tissue leaves, will sometimes fail on a single copy.

It is said that the process of dyeing roses is becoming a remunerative branch of industry with English horticulturists. Instead of growing new varieties of roses, which is a process of years, they simp y grow ordinary white roses and dS them in a chemical solution which in a single hour converts them into the most magnificent yellow tea roses, the rare scarlet red or the peculiar shaded bluish violet which has been one of the favorites of the season, In a similar way pink roses are turned into blossoms of the deepest red. Some years ago, before this branch of "floral chemistry was developed, the first experiments were successfully made in France with the popular pink hortensia, which, by being watered with a solution of iron, assumed a blue shade.-London Letter.
