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. .
