Engineers report that copper sulfate, also called blue vitriol, sometimes will free sew. ers of troublesome tree roots.

This should be done when the flow of water is not ex- cessive. Occasionall~,, the sewer will be clogged completely a few weeks after the first application. The cause is disintegrating roots which cannot be carried away fast enough. After the large mass of roots is cleared out, it is easy to keep the sewer in good working order by putting 1 to 2 pounds of copper sulfate through the toilet once a year. In a septic ~ank, the crystals can be put through the distribution box, if the system has one. :~: Aiit"~ Fairy Ring Produces Toxic Gas Lawn and turf grasses can be severely damaged by poison gases ~ h?a|fll.

Therefore, it is thought or Do that the k~lling of grass, at least by fairy rings of this fungus, is due to the production of a cy- anogenic compound produced by the fungus. Fairy Rings are first seen as a cluster of mushrooms or a tuft of stimulated grass. T,ne rings enlarge each year from a few in. ches to 2 feet or more. The lush dark green grass of the fairy ring is due to the increased a- mount of nitrogen made available to the grass roots by the fungus as it breaks down organic matter in the soil. The ring of brown "dormant" grass is caused pri- marily by temporary exhaustion of the soil, water, nutrients and possibly the production of cyano- genic compounds produced by the fungus.
