Paris green, is the sovereign remedy, but it is Only Within a edffi- paratively few years that a successful treatment has been found for the blight. It seeins now, however, that an effective remedy has been found in the Bordeaux mixture. CAtiSE OF BLiGfif, The blight is caused by the growth in the potato vines of minute parasitic plants, known as fungi. There are two distinct Species of funpi which prodnee the blight in potatoes—one, known botanically as Macrosporium solani, causes what is now known as the early blight, the other, Phytoph- thora infestans, causes the late blight which has been the most common and destructive. Blight, rust, and rot are the various names by which it has thus attacked ate Very likely todficsy, and great loss occurs, not only befote they are du# but even after they are stofed ifl the cellar, if the Conditions thete should ba favorable. %e threads of the fungus Iiv6 over wifltef in the tubers, whichj if used for sfi^d, serve to start the disease again the following If it can be avoided, potatoes which Vnowtt to be diseased of which have befeii gAm in & field attacked* by' the blight should not be used lor seed. However, a fentedy has been found Which, if used in season, seeing to be v&ry efflcieat in 6he6k* •ing of preventing the dist ease. This remedy is the Bordeaux miittii-e, whidh, wkeft applied to the vines, destroys the vitality of the spores with Which it comes in contact and thus prevents the infection of healthy plants, tt should be applied, if possible, before the disease makes its appearance, at least by the last of ouly, and the applications, should be repeated at intervals of ten to four* teen days, and oftener if the mixture is Washed off by rains, until the tubers have matured, Usually three anplica" tions will be sufficient but a fourth may sometimes be required, EXAMPLES. In experiments made in the summer of 1803, the vines on the sprayed plots remained green from one to four weeks longer than those on the un» tprayed plots. In one case the yield of merchantable potatoes from the sprayed plot feft. Some fine specimens of American tea nave been s6nt ffom Fayette, 0., this sea'soa to northern markets,, Snd, according to the New York Evening Post, the results of the sales seem to indicate that the culture of this t&fropin patts of the south may yet leftd to large fortunes. It is not get)" 6*ally known that attempts wei-6 made to establish tea gardens here before the War, and since the end of that outbreak systematic efforts have been fflade to revive the old gardens. Pro! .Massey oi the State agficttltUfal coi- lege has been instrumental in trying ito 6 l*ead information among the farm- els concerning the culture of tea, and & few have been induced to put out gardens. The tea sent from the old Smith farm this season brought 80 cents a pound, and some from the Stiinmerville gardens in South daro^ Una brought as high as $1 a pound. Last summer the tea cut at Summer- •viiie amounted to a dozen or two pounds, and this year several times that amount has been sold. Dr. Shep&rd says that the leaf grown in the south is better for black than for green tea and that the cost Of picking is about 25 cents a pound of cured tea. On & large scale, with the best apparatus for gathering and curing, this cost might be largely reduced, He feels confident, however, that cheap rate culture could never be made profitable here on account of the lower wages that rule in Japan and India and China, but the higher grade teas can be grown Take no Substitute for Royal Baking Powder Pure Absolutely All others contain alum or ammonia. :\ A GROUP OF ANGORA GOATS.—FARMERS' REVIEW. been called. Tfiis disease seems to have been especially prevalent during the last few years, doubtless owing to the peculiar conditions presented by the weather, a warm and moist season being most favorable to its development; , TIME OF Ari'BABANCB. It usually makes its first appearance during the month of August when the vines of the later varieties are in full growth. Early varieties often escape its attacks altogether. The leaves are the first to show its effects. They become more or less discolored, then begin at the edge to turn brown and curl up, or, if the weather be very damp, to rot. If a leaf which, is only partly dead, is 'closely examined there will be seen on the under surface, especially along either side of the line separating the dead portion from the living, a very fine white fuzg; this consists of the ' spore stalks of the fungus which, is growing within, the tissues of the leaf and which constitutes ^tlie sole cause - of the disease, If a portion of the lea* thus affected be ' placed wpder a suitable power of the microscope, the fine white brancWuiT stalks, way be plainly seejj growing out of the breathing pores Qr^toreata in the epidermis, sometimes one and. sometimes several growing from a'aingje openings P» t>J?e sid,es aijd tips of th^ir branches, will •be B§§» Jittle. whifce e£g-sh,ap§d b.pd,iesj the,s,e aye. tbe jpprgs gr - se§d 9!

SEEDLESS GRAPES—It has been stated in a recent essay by a prominent horticulturist that seedless grapes are produced" by growing a plant from cuttings for several successive generations. The theory is that a plant becomes'accustomed to,this mode of propagation.,' and then ' the natural process of'producing seeds becomes abortive ^by disuse. While those of wide experience may smile at this speculation, it is really one on which many • scientific men, differ, That there is no 'ground whatever for -believing that seedless grapes can be produced injthis way is evident from the'cftse pf l^e red currant in our gardens. *! Whis * has been contiw'tyousiy propagated b,$r<cuttings frbm$ie time when the Romans haf sway' in *England, and yet, as it is well hnpwn^it produces seeds as 'freely tO' d ey as if it'had been raised 'continuously from seeds for a couple of thousand >f years, Juj&t bow nature 4oes produce the ieedless grapes, is fee^ yet well ; a»d the honest answer to the hew ^gfljeis grapes with considerable profit Dr. Shepard is increasing- his tea gardens every year, and when the plants are old enough to yield good crops he proposes to put in good machinery and start into tea selling or money. Prof v Massey says that the finest tea he ever tasted .was grown in the south, and he has no doubt but it will be a future profitable crop , in the Carolinas. Mr. Jackson, an expert tea grower from Assam, who had charge of the Summerville •> plantation under Gen, Le Due, says that with negro' labor he c~an raise tea more cheaply than is done with coolie labor in India, because of its greater reliability. In regard to the hardiness of the tea plant, all observers seem to agree that north of thirty'five degrees it is unwise to attempt to cultivate it, Around Old Point; Comfort, where some plants- have been growing more or less feebly for years, the winters cut the plants badly, and on the upper part of the Delaware peninsular they were en* tirelyv Billed.

The greatest evil which ever befell New York city was the division ot the blocks into lots of 25 by 100 feet, says Scribner. .So true is this that no other disaster can for a moment be compared with it. Fires, pestilence and financial trouble are as nothing in comparison, for from this division has arisen the Now York system of tenement-houses, the worst curse which ever afflicted any great community. The fact that so much of the land is held in such parcels is our misfortune, but the obstacle is not insuperable, as shown by our office buildings. The difficulty has arisen and persistently flourishes Giving entirely to our lack of knowledge of tho art of scientific planning. For who would wasto money in erecting unnecessary walls, halls, etc., if lie knew how to obtain the same amount of rentable space much better lighted without them? By the present system the ground is encumbered, tho light, obstructed, and the structure rendered unhealthy and unfit to live in, and all this is accomplished at a vastly increased expense over what the same rentable space, well lighted might be obtained for. Great suras of money aro yearly squandered upon making the structure unfit to live in. Then other great sums are contributed by charitable people to relieve the distress which these horrible structures engender. Hospitals are kept full, children die, misery,, disease and crime flourisheth. because people are huddled together without light and air, and all this happens simply because the principles of economical planning are not understood.
