cussions and treatises it contains on all topics of interest to our agriculturists

With regard to the sulphur question, I am securing exact comparative
value between crude and flowers of sulphur, but have not received an an
swer yet. Ido not want to quarrel with any one about brimstone in this
world, as there will be time enough for such a fitting subject in the next.

much pleasure to see you bring these things home to the farmers, as you do

information to me that it would be difficult to get in any other way. —A. B.

the superior court on Monday. Mr. Snively, representing Thompson &
Kain, objected to the complaint, claiming that it was defective. The court

cure the defects in the complaint. This case has already attracted much
newspaper attention, but this is the first attention had by it in court. Porter
is the assignee of J. \V. Of field, a fruit raiser on Snake river, who sold his
crop of fruit to Thompson & Kain. They claim that he misrepresented the
crop and that they lost a large amount of money thereby.—Yakima Herald.

The life of the flockmaster in the Northwest is anything but pleasant,
being subjected to the rigors of all kinds of weather; and yet as a class they
are the hardiest and most fully developed of any of our people. A remark
able physical specimen is Ira Henderson, of Henderson Bros., who measures

I have an eighty-acre farm in St. Croix county, Wisconsin, three miles
from railroad town and only forty miles from St. Paul, Minn., all improved
and clear of debt, which I would like to trade for a forty-barrel water-power
roller flour mill or for a stock ranch. If you know of any parties that have
such property to trade please let me know, and oblige, yours, W. B. Hushing,

Ten thousand dollars has gone east from Spokane this fall to purchase
poultry and eggs, and it is estimated that $30,000 more will be taken from
this city before summer to buy such products from the East. Every cent
of this sum could have been retained had the farmers of the Inland Empire
given the poultry business more attention, says the Spokesman-Review. The
importations of these products are increasing rather than diminishing, the
C. I. Helm, of Ellensburg, shipped a car load of horses to Honolulu last
week. The car was made up of roadsters, come three or four inside the 2:30
limit, and some French Percheons. The heavy horses went 1200 to 1300
pounds, and were contracted at $-400 to $450 per span. Mr. Helm has been
breeding the big horses all through the depression in the horse market and
now feels very cheerful at the outlook. He has 800 to 1000 head on his place

cannery at Linnton, near Portland. He recently purchased the Looney and
Cecil bands of about 500 head. The Heppner Times applauds him as a

A little farm well tilled,
A little barn well filled,
A little wife, a boy, a girl,
The happiest trio in the world.
We've plenty to eat, and plenty to wear.
And a little money to go to the fair;
We have no mortgage, we have no debt
Over which to wriggle, foam and sweat.
We have a plenty and some to spare,
We give to the needy whoever they are.

I've all there is—this side the grave.
