It will be remembered that the peach growers of the Lake Shore of Michigan, believed that they could stamp out the "yellows " from Michigan by law, and so had an enactment by which any one harboring the enemy, could be notified, and in the event of contempt of said notice, summarily dealt with. But the yellows have spread fearfully in Michigan in spite of the law. It is proposed now to have the law amended. The Michigan Farmer says the failures seem mainly to have grown out of the selection of unsatisfactory persons as commissioners, or the ignorance or waywardness of the owners of diseased trees, and a possible lack of thoroughness or independence on the part of such commissioners.
