IX MY DREAMS.
In my dreams, when the day is ended,
And Its wearing cares are o'er,
I meet once more in the dear old home
With the friends I loved of yore.
I meet my father's pleasant smile,
I am sure of his loving care;
There are no lines on my mother's face
As she smiles on her children there.
My brothers—o'er from the silent land:
In my dreams they are not dead;
Xor is one a man with care-worn brow:
Both are laughing boys instead.
My sisters—women with busy lives —
As little children I meet:
I hear their voices call my name
And the sound of childish feet.
'Twould be sweet to meet in my old
With the clasp of a friendly hand;
But I still should Ions: for the faraway
And the loved in the better land.
Here I can see them all once more,
In my dreams they are just the same:
Not one has ever grown old or changed
As they answer to each loved name.
I go once more to the cottage door
And gaze on the distant streams'
I've nothing to wish or long for then,
When I go home in my dreams.
And I love to think in the Father's land,
When I cross o'er death's cold stream,
I shall meet the ones I loved on earth
And It will not be in a dream.
State College Bulletin Deals With
The first of a series of bulletins is
sued by the State college giving brief,
up-to-date information on timely
topics in agriculture, is the follow
ing dealing with the smut problem:
The loss to farmers of the wheat
belt in Washington, Idaho and Ore
gon from smut in the wheat crop of
1911 is estimated by the Chief Grain
inspector of Washington to amount
to $7,000,000. This enormous loss
has led to the organization of a defi
nite "Anti-Smut Campaign." The
leaders in this movement recently
met in convention at Pullman to dis
cuss the situation and to plan for a
systematic campaign of education,
experimentation and organization to
eradicate this costly pest. As a re
sult of their deliberations, the fol
lowing conclusions were reached:
The increased prevalence of smut
is due largely to the increase in acre
age of fall-sown wheat, as fall-sown
grain is more susceptible to the dis
ease than spring-sown, but spring
grain is not entirely free from the
Smut infection comes mostly from
smutty seed, but weather and soil
conditions influence the amount of
infection, and there is a possibility
of infection from smut in the ground
if very smutty grain has been recent
ly threshed near by.
Solutions for treating seed wheat
should be carefully made in certain
definite proportions. Some wheat
growers have been successful while
using haphazard methods, but they
are men whose long experience en
ables them to "guess".very accurate
ly the strength of solutions used.
Safety lies in exactly measured
The strength of vitriol solution is
one pound of vitriol (copper sul
phate or "bluestone") to five gallons
of water. Wheat should be soaked
in this solution for not less than ten
nor more than fifteen minutes. Some
successful farmers have used as
strong as one pound vitriol to two
and one-half gallons of water, soak
ing not more than ten minutes', with
out serious injury to the wheat. Too
strong solution or too long soaking
will kill the wheat.
Formalin should be used one
pound to forty-five gallons water the
wheat thoroughly wetted by dipping
or sprinkling, then covered with wet
sacks for two hours, then either
seeded at once or allowed to dry
Unbroken smut balls must be re
moved from seed wheat, as no meth
od of treatment destroys the germs
in these balls, and if later broken in
the seed wheat they infect the grain
Experiments by the Experiment
Station and by practical farmers will
be begun this fall, to determine what
solutions are most efficient and what
conditions must be guarded against
Complete eradication of smut by
the united effort of every wheat
grower is the surest protection
against the pest.
"THK GIRL, in THE TAXI."
"The Girl in the iaxi," which f
comes to the Ridgeway theater Vor I
an engagement of one night, Thurs
day, October 26, was first produced in
Paris under the title "Le Fils 8
Papa," which might be rendered
"Like Father Like Son." The piece
created one of the greatest sensations
the French metropolis has ever
known and ran for more than 1000
nights. It was originally written by
Anthony Mars, that past master in
the art of intrigue. The American
adaptation was made by Stanislaus
Stange, and holds the record for the
long runs of any similar play in New
York, Chicago and Boston. The
locale has been changed from Paris
to New York, but the play retains
all the humor and atmosphere of
midnight life which made it so pop
ular abroad. In the author's opinion,
"The Girl in the Taxi ' is by far the
cleverest and funniest piece credited
to his facile pen. It contains more
wit and humor, more interesting and
amusing characters, and more ludi
crous, yet possible complications and I
embarassments than half a dozen of
his other plays combined.
