The various species of Ustilaginae, especially U. Segetum,
causing smut in wheat and other plants have been under
observation by a host of competent scientific observers for
many years past, and it is only of late, after much patient
research and many thousands of anatomical observations,
more in the laboratory than the field, that the life history of
the fungus has been elucidated. In the Gardener's Chronicle
for February 23 and March 2, a detailed account of recent
discoveries as to the nature of Ustilaginae is given by H.
Marshall Ward. As this account is replete with information
at present little known, arrangements have been made for its
publication in Webster's Gazette for August and September,
where full details may be found.
