John Davis had eome thickens last week,
A tooster jray, and loving bens;
But he don't have some chickens this week.
Since Monday night 'bout half past ten.

Or some one thought that he would be.

A '"ft they've jrone for parts unknown,

And no one thinks theyVe ever FLOWN,
Or that they'll ever come to stay.

iTobatco growers wtiio ret-all the

a sharp lookout for the trouble again
Dr. S. G. Lehman, nlunt
specialist for the North Carolina
experiment Statinn nrf, . wj
in Robeson County afTected and be
cause of the prevalence of the
trouble last season, he looks for an-
omcr epidemic this season. This dis

Downv mildew wm tnwnA : v,
Robeson County plant bed on Febru
ary Si. Last year the first trouble
wa reported during the third week
n April. This shows the disease is
appearing some two months ra-iarr
than last year and means that grow
ers should begin to inspect their beds
regujariy now, says Dr. Lehman.
TKfl v.;L4 a.:nAU n...,i . it-
iiuivi nuuir nrsvuer prevailing
through moet of the late winter and
the abundant occurrence of the dis
ease m so many plant beds in 1931
means that there may be a large
quantity of over-wintering diseased
material trora which the disease may
get a new start this neaton. The
forward development of the trouble
in Georgia and the early re-appearance
fn this State also indicates the
opportunities for an early start
Dr. Lehman advises good ventila
tion and thorough drainage for the
plant beds so that the surface of the
bed may be kept dry. Where the dis
ease appears, he suggests that the
affected plants be destroyed and the
others sprayed with Bordeaux mix
ture. Some insecticide may be used
with the Bordeaux to keep down the
flea bceHes and other infects.
Definite instructions about how to
spray the beds and control the din
ease will be given to nnv one who
will write to Dr. I.clniiHii for tlu. in
