On Friday of last week there were examined by W. H. Brown, the
county inspector, 800 boxes of oranges landed from Japan, 290 boxes con
signed to the J. W. Godwin Commission Co. and the balance to a Japanese
trading company, and found them to be infected quite badly with the mealy
bug and five species of scale. He concluded that it would be necessary to
have the oranges removed from their paper wrappings. The infected ones
were to be picked out and dumped, the balance to be fumigated as a pre
caution. This order would necessarily incur a considerable expense and
trouble, and the Japanese informed their consul in Tacoma of the facts,
and objected to the ruling. Horticultural Commissioner Baker, of Tacoma,
was also informed by the inspector of the matter, and an appointment was
made so that a meeting was held and the fruit examined. The horticultural
commissioner agreed with the county inspector in regard to the fruit being
infested, but modified the ruling so that the fruit could be placed on the
market after being fumigated in the boxes and with the wrappers on. Mr.
Brown held out very vigorously for the carrying out of a more thorough
fumigation, claiming that the pests would not be killed unless the fruit
was taken out of the wrappers. "Mr. Baker's decision is against me," said
Mr. Brown, "and it now remains for the scientists of the Department of
Agriculture to give their decision."

The Hill Syrup Company, of Seattle, is enlarging its business at a rate
that is particularly worthy of congratulation. Our readers, from previous
descriptions we have given, are already familiar with the history of the estab
lishment and development of this house, which now covers with its travelers
all the Northwestern states, reaching into Montana, California, Utah and
Nevada, and all intervening territory. Mr. E. G. Hill, the founder, who is
a native of Moore county, Vermont, and is 74 years of age, is still actively
engaged in its management. Recently, in order to supply the trade in Brit
ish Columbia, a branch has been established at Vancouver. Besides the
famous Vermont Maple Syrup, there are put on the market a number of
brands of sugar cane syrup and molasses, and also a fine grade of refined
honey in one and two-pound jars.
The man from Wisconsin condensed much common sense in his brief
directions for successful immigration work: "Give the facts/ That's all
the Inland Empire needs to do—give the plain facts, good and bad together,
without any fancy work about them, and let the people of the Eastern and
Middle states think for themselves. Settlers who must be made to believe
Washington is a second edition of Utopia before they will come west are not
the kind who will be of any use to the state. The plain facts are good enough
for sensible men who are seeking homes. —Spokane Chronicle.
The accompanying engraving shows a portion of the extensive manu
facturing plant of the Denny Clay Company. This company employs 185
men in mining their clay and coal at the works. They manufacture the best
of tiling for draining farm lands. Often the most productive land on the
farm is not used simply because it is too wet, but when properly drained it
becomes the best land on the ranch. The only proper way to do the drain
ing is to use a first-class drain tile such as this company manufactures. An
other part of the farm that should be attended to is the barn yard. It should
be properly drained and kept dry and clean. A clean barn yard means, clean
milk, and clean milk means the purest butter. By using this tile you will be
secure from the ravages of all kinds of rats and mice, which will destroy cedar
wood drains as fast as one can put them in. The cheapest investment for the
farmer is drain tile. Tt will add much to the productiveness of your property
and will undoubtedly add much comfort and health to the farmer and his
