l. It is generallytrue that one-half of one per cent of seedlings are affected with thecrown-gall form, and one per cent with the hairy-root form. That isone method. I have stated that disease occurs only at wounds, so anyreduction in the amount of wounds reduces the effect upon the trees inthe form of crown gall in the nursery. It is also found that disease ismore prevalent upon root-grafted trees than upon budded, for the rea-son that less serious wounds are made. It is found that the diseasedevelops at the graft union, when it is not well made. Q. Are irrigated trees more su))ject to this disease? A. Not so far as we know. Q. Are seedlings grown in France and otiier countries as sus-ceptible as those grown in this country? A. The question has often been raised as to whether the Frenchstock seedlings grown in France were more or less susceptible inother countries. It is found that there is a slight difference in favorof the American grown seedlings as far as crown aall is concerned.

I doubt very much if scien-tific farming (and orcharding is farming) can be conducted alongany line in these times without poultry. I have been interested in poultry culture for something like twenty-tAvo or twenty-three years, and I have been studying and observingduring these years the work of those who were interested in the samelines of investigation. About 12 years ago I had occasion to ascertainas nearly as possible the amount of money that the State of Washingtonwas sending abroad for poultry and poultry ju-oduets. and learned thatwe were sending out $300,000 annually. The farmers of the MiddleWest were getting the money that our own farmers should have had. Tna more recent i
