Thre are two known Mights which
affect the potato in America, the .airly
blight, Alternaria Solani, and the late
blight,   which   causes   the   rot,   Phy-
burg it  is generally  believed  that j tophther-a Infestans.   The early blight
General Kuropatkin was yesterday
fighting a reaiguard action to cover | early in July,
his retreat, aud that the night will
have witnessed a large withdrawal
of troops towards the Tie Pass. All
of the commander-in-chief's ability,
it is considered, will b. required to
extricate his army frcm its present
predicament. The issue, it u expected, will be decided to-morrow,
and much unquestionably depends
upon tbe comparative ability
of the opposing armies to resist the
effect of hunger and fatigue, the
limit of human endurance evidently
having been nearly reached on both
sides.    Beyond the statemeut that
causes the spotting of the leaves
These spots increase
in size, unite and form large masses
of diseased tissue. This blight doe*
not attack the tubers and is not aekr-
ly as injurious as the other. If the
leaves are punctured by beetles or
Irom some other cause the disease
gets a foothold easier.
Tht late Wight is th** one which
causes by far thc greater loss, both
by lessening the crop and by causing
mt. According to Mr. VV. T. Ma-
c.iiin, Horticulturist of the Central
Experimental Farm, this disease
pauses the winter in the tubers, and
in the spring when thc vines begin to
grow it starts to develop, trowing up
the casualties exceed those of the! 'J""*** ,hc ,is'sucf n(   the   -"^
battle of Liaoyang, there is little
known as to the number killed or
wounded. j
Thursday, March 9���Mukden at
noon to-day was still occupied by
the Russians. Fu Pass, twelve!
miles to the eastward, and on the
Hun river, a vital point for General
Kuropatkin in the retreat of his eastern wing was bombarded by the Japanese for an hour early in the day,
Russian artillery replying vigorously. The outcome at this point
seems to be in doubt. A wind
storm of hurricane fury was in progress during the day. No reports
from the commander in-chief later
than yesterday have been given out
at St. Petersburg.
The Associated Press despatches
from Mukd. n indicate that considerable Japanese forces are well north
ofthe city of Mukden and that the
railroad upon which depends so
much for the Russian army is seriously threatened, if, indeed, it has
not been cut.

The annual exhibition of Delta
Agricultural Society will be held ou

Pasturage of grounds will be let
by auction as usual. Due notice
will be given as to time and date.
H. N. Rich and A. DeR. Taylor
were appointed a printing committee.
Tree planting will be proceeded
with ;:nl blanks in the present

Little Wilfred Miller chopped oft
tbe top of the index finger of his
left hand on  Monday.    Dr. King|
fixed it up so that, in all probability,  he will retain the finger!
stem. During the latter part of July
it produces on the underside* of the
leaves myriads of tiny spores, which
ill the mass have a frost-like appearance. These spores make the rust
stage, which is caused by the leaf tissues drying up where the spores have
been feeding on them and causing
dark brown spots. It is from this
stage that future infection takes place,
as the spores are carried rapidly by
the Wind and alight oft the foliage.
They are also washed below the surface of the ground and reach the
young tubers, and in time cause the
rot. The potato rot itself is a dry
rot; the wet rot comes throitgdi decay
of the tubers, lt is when the tubers
begin to form that the blight begins
to appear. This is just alter the potato has passed the most vigorous
stage, the stage when in a wild state
it would be blossoming and producing seed. At this stage the constitution of the plant is weakened, which
probably makes it more subject to
disease at this time. In the Province
of Ontario potato vines usually dry
up during the latter part of August.
Why should they tlie so soon when
they do not produce seed? If the
season is fairly favorable ertn the
earliest varieties may be kept growing right on into September by
thorough cultivation and spraying.
The important point is to get tlveru
past the period when they are in a
weakened condition, without injury
from fungous diseases ot insects.
Experiments conducted at the Vermont Experiment Station proved that
over half thc crop of marketable potatoes was produced after August
22nd. ln Ontario the potato yiaes
are usually dead shortly after that
date. The great gain in keeping potatoes growing until late in September
is here very apparent. Vety marked
results in spraying With I'ordeaux
mixture for blight have been obtained
by the Vermont Station, th�� Irwh
Department of Agriculture, (iftd the
Dominion and Provincial Experimental Farms. In k/>j experiments by
Mr. Nlacoun with eight v��rietie*
showed an average difference ia f,��-
\or of spraying of 100 bttslwl* tit
��� naritfctSsble potatoes, and in 10M witk
eleven varieties the average difference
was 120 btlfhei***!  rrr acre.    YVi'h tl*

Mortgage Sale.
Under and by virtue of the Power of Sale contained in a certain
mortgage, bearing -late the first.day
of March, 1899, and made between
Wilhelm Reinbard formerly of Ladner's Landing in the Province of
British Columbia and now ofthe
city of Vernon in said Province, of
the one part, and Howard B.
Kennard of Kelowna in said province, of the'other part, there will
be offered by private sale the following property:
All tbat certain parcel of land
known and described on the official
plan of the District of New
Westminster as lot number four
hundred and seventy-one (471),
Group number two (2) and said to
contain one hundred and sixty (160)
acres, situated at Laduer's Laud iug,
Sealed tenders will be received for
the purchase of such lands, by the
undersigned, up to and inclusive of
the 1 oth day of March, 1905.

For further particulars apply to
Messrs. Major and Pearson, New

August i.jtli, thc formula used being
> lbs. bhiestone, 4 lbs. lime, 40 gallons water. While the Colorado
beetles were active i-ij-lii ounces, of
Paris green were added to each forty
gallons of the mixture. For Itrgt'
���in:is the expense for bhies't'one wottl i
be in the neighborhood of $0 per acre,
and the total expense probably not
more llian $.S or $<i. Kven at $10 per
acre the result of the above experiment for 1902 would show a profit of
$.���,-** per acre, potatoes selling at 40
cents   a  bushel.
These resulls should convince potato growers of the importance of
-.praying their potatoes ior the prevention of lili^hl anil rot. The Work
must be thoroughly done. Spraying
should be .begun by the middle of
July and the vines kept covered with
the mixture until Ihe close of the
I.t is generally recognized that some
varieties of potatoes have greater
power than others to resist this disease, and it is safer to cultivate only
varieties which are superior in this
respect. All diseased refuse from an
affected field should be burned. It
is also advisable to avoid using for
se.ed purposes potatoes from a diseased crop, even though the tubers
appear healthy.

'Twould Spoil This Story to Tell It in
the Headlines.
To use an eighteenth century
phrase, this is an ''o'er true tale."
Having happened in a small Virginia
town in the winter of 1902, is it a story
very much of thc present. Up to a
short time ago Mrs. John 17 Harmon,
of Melfa Station, Va��� had no personal
knowledge of the rare curative properties of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. "Last January," she says, "my
baby took a dreadful cold and at one
time I feared she would have pneumonia, but one of my neighbors told
mc how tins remedy had cured her
little boy and I began giving it to my
baby at once and it soon cured her.
I heartily thank the manufacturers ol
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy for
placing so great a cure within my
reach. 1 cannot recommend it too
highly or say too much in its favor.
I hope all who read this will try it and
be convinced as I was." For sale by
