The Government Expert Declares the
Blight in Thomas County
There is nqflhing of more public
interest to the people of this section
than the investigation, being made by
the Government’s special agent in
Thomas county, of the blight to the
LeConte pear that lias so alarmed the

the blight, oomplair.ad'of in Thomas

result of too vigorous and rapid

The Thomasville correspondent of
the Savannah News, under date of
Mav 25th, gives the following inter
esting letter on the subject:
"Considerable interest has been
awakened in the minds of the public
from reports going out from this point
of damage to pear trees—the famous
LeConte. Tk e £e originated from the
fact that Mr. Waita, an emplpye of
the United States Government in the
Agricultural Department, had been
seut here through the instrumentality
of some of the nigh officials of the Sn-
ranuab, Florida and Western rail
road to investigate the condition of
the fruit crop in this section and no
tably the LeConte pears.

A SKIN DISKASJJ.
Mr. Waite is an expert in his line
and is giving a close and scientific in
vestigation' to the subject. It has
some points of infinitesimal nicety
ihat requires the closest scrutiny, and
Mr. Waite is not yet prepared to give
his opinion on the subject, but goes
go far as to say that the disease is bac
teria, a skill disease, and not the re
sult of an insect, Jlis theory is that it.
is caused by forcing, or a preponder
ance of sap .'Q the tree, and his opin
ion is sustained by the observations
of growers ot the tree.
HOW TO TREAT IT.
He docs not look upon the disease
a8 of great importance, and thinks
that it can best be treated by judi
cious pruning or cutting out of the
diseasea twigs or litnbs. thus stopping
the decay, as you would by removing
an injured finger, hand or arm on a
human body. Your correspondent
docs not pretend to quote Mr. Waite,
who says he is not yet ready to make
a report, hut gives fiis views from gep-
eral conversation. As soon as he is
prepared to make a report he will fur
nish the News with it.
A KISS AT THE DOOR.
We were standing in the doorway,
My little wife and I;
The golden sun uponlhcr hair
Fell down so silently;
A small white hand upon ray arm—
What could I ask for more
Than the kindly glance of loving eyes.
As she kissed me at the door?
1 know she loves with all her heart
The one who stands beside,
And the years have been so joyous,
Since first I called her bride;
We’ve had so much of happiness
Since we met in years before,
Hut the happiest time of all was wi;en
She kissed me at the door.
Who carc3 for wealth or land or gold,
For fames or matchless power?
It does not give the happiness
Of just one half an hour
With one who loves me as her life—
She says she loves me more—
And I thought she did this morning,
When she kissed me at the door.
At times it seems that all the world,
Witii all its wealth of gold,
Is very small and poor indeed,
Compared with what I hold;
And when the clouds hang grim and dark,
1 only think the more
Of one who waits the coming step
To kiss me at the door.
If she lives till age shall scatter
Its frost upon her head,
I know she'll love me just the same
As the morning, we were wed;
Hut if the angels call her.
And she goes lo heaven before,
I shall know her when I meet lier-
Fpr she ll kiss me at the door.
The Power of Faith.
From the New York Mercury.
“Yas, my bruthrin,” said Parson
Gabo Ransom in the course of his set-
mon, “foith can move mountains an'
dig tunnels. When you go to pray
hold on to yo’ faith an’ keep a-wrest-
lin’, an’ you’ll tret what you want af

an' I kept on prayin’, an’ at las’ I

’cause I got up an’ took a las’e of it.
Now, Brer Toleson, I' want you to

Varnadoc, the introducer of the Le
Conte pear in this section, he says
that he is not alarmed about the dis
ease, that he has seen it for the past
ten years to some extent, and jt is
simply a disease to which all things
having life are subject, but that the
LeConte is less liable to it than any
other pear tree. It does not attack
young trees, but only those having
blooms. He thinks it the result of
an insect which feeds on the bloom
and burrows in the twig, and says
that he has magnified the insect and
can plainly see that it is animal life.

He attaches no importance to it,
however, and says that he lias this
year the largest crop he ever made,
and will ship a carload from his
neighborhood, every other day this
season. Sir, Varnadoo savs the Le
Conte can get along with less rain
than any other fruit trec known.
The crop in this section is, without a
doubt, an average one, but it is not
so in other places. The climate, soil,
