OWN AND O OUNTY-
We don't like to make apologies, as a
rule, but with this issue of the Herald
we are compelled to in behalf of—some
body else. We sent our newspaper head
ing away for improvement, and with the
usual luck of all who trust Portland for
anything important, we are "left" with
out a heading this issue. We are not
blameable for this, and you can safely
bet it won't occur again.

—The Washington Farmer says that
the farmers of Yakiina valley have ex
ported two-thirds of their wheat of this
year's crop, receiving for it an average
of only 57 cents per bushel. Eight mills
in the county, with a capacity of 510
barrels per day, are now buying wheat
in the Palouso country at 85 cents per
bushel, making a total of $425,000 that
Yakima valley pays out for wheat to
keep her mills running.
—Do yon realize that this territory of
Washington is the "biggest thing out?"
She has more timber, more coal, more
iron ore, more copper, more gold and
silver, the biggest and best harbor, the
finest soil, the mo6t magnificent climate,
the biggest little cities, the biggest
yonng business men, is making the most
rapid development, and has the grandest
future of any commonwealth in the na
tion. These are facts, not "booms."
—Here is a recipe for small-pox which
is guaranteed absolutely to cure that
disease in a few hours; also the scarlet
fever. It was first published in the Cal
ifornia papers, and the statement is
made that it was never known to fail.
The correspondent who offers it says:
" Here is the recipe as I have used it,
and cured my children of scarlet fever;
here it is as I have used it to cure the
small-pox. When learned physicians
said the patient must die it has cured:
Sulphate of zinc, one grain; foxglove
(digitalis), one grain; half a teaspoon
ful of sugar. Mix with two teaspoonfuls
of water; when thoroughly mixed, add
four ounces of water. Take a teaspoon
ful every hour. Either disease will dis
appear in twelve hours. For a child,
smaller doses, according to age. If
counties would compel physicians to use
this, there would be no need of pest
houses. If yon value advice and exper
ience, use this for that terrible disease."
—Farmington Register: Mr. George
Simpson, who has just arrived from a
prospecting tour on Hangman creek, a
few miles from this city, brings samples
of fine quartz discovered by himself.
The samples were taken from a ledge
eight or nine feet in width, which can
be traced for several miles. Himself and
several others will develop the claim this
winter, which, judging from the sam
ples, will prove a bonanza to its proprie
tors. It has long been known that the
banks of Hangman creek, Deep creek
and other streams near there contained
valuable quartz ledges, and why they
did not commence to develop them long
before was on account of the great Coeur
d'Alene district being so close, and when
a person wanted to mine he generally
went to that place.
—The Herald wishes to remark right
here that its first month's business has
been highly satisfactory to its publish
ers, and to the public, also, we hope.
Not a single patron has dropped from

Shall We Have a Creamery!
A gentleman from the East, a practi
cal, first-class butter-maker, proposes to
erect and place in operation at Pullman
at once a good Creamery, provided he
shall bo guaranteed at least 3,000 pounds
of milk daily the year round. This
would require the product of about 150
common cows, and there is no reason why
our farmers could not supply the
amount. The butter manufactured by
the gentleman mentioned we personally
know to be A 1 always, commanding a
good price, and under his management
the Creamery would unquestionably be
come a popular and prosperous institu
tion. Every farmer, or other person,
who will supply milk for the purpose is
earnestly requested to notify the Her
ald, or the Fariss Bros. (Pullman), giv
ing name, location, and the number of
cows, with their probable yield, which
he will contract to furnish. Yearly con
tracts will be made with all at the uni
form rate of 81.00 per hundred pounds
of milk for the first year; the second year
the price paid is likely to be higher. As
three gallons equal 25 pounds in weight,
you can figure out whether the sale of
your milk will be profitable to you or
not. The town and all adjacent country
would be large gainers through the es
tablishment of this Creamery, and the
Herald sincerely hopes the responses
will be immediate and numerous enough
to justify the early erection of the build
ings. Let us hear from you, gentlemen.
