A POTATO SCARB IN THE VALLEY. I THE VARIEGATED LEAF. I Some scare has been created in various parts of the Rhymney Valley, by the speckled appearance of the leaves of the potato haulms. The impression is, that this is the first sign of the potato blight, and some allotment holders have gone so far as to uproot their crops. It is yet too early for the blight to make its appearance. The experts do not recommend spraying of potatoes, as a preventative of the blight, until the first or second week in July, and even then in districts which are weeks in advance of the Rhymney Valley. The actual cqjise of the variegated leaf is dUè, to the planting of eating po- tatoes, and not properly matured seed potatoes. Here we see the effect of the bungling of the authorities over the potato supplies, in the early part of the season. Eating potatoes were dumped upon the market as seed, and eagerly purchased away to the threat of a great shortage. Later on the proper seed potatoes were sold for eating. The effected tubers, may not be quite so prolific as from prepared seed, bat beyond this there is no harm. ■
