Wheat Grades the Same.
Tacoma, Wash., Sept. 19.—At
its session tonight the state grain
commission voted to reestablish the
old wheat grades. The rules estab
lishing the old grades provide that
it' in inspecting grain it is found that
any of it has not been properly clean
ed, the inspector shall place upon it
the grade it is entitled to "if properly
cleaned." It is not thought prob
able that the commission will adopt
any system of dockage this year.
Samples of grain fron which
grades and tests from the 1904 crop
will be established show a better
quality than those of the 1903 crop,
and less wheat will be rejected this
year. All of the new grain from
the present crop already moved was
made subject to the grades estab
lished for 1903. The remainder of
the crop will come under the present
ruling of the commission.
While the crop as a whole is short
of first estimates, being now esti
mated by the state grain inspector
at 26,000,000 bushels, instead of
30,000,000 bushels, its better quality
will make it run larger to No. 1
Inspector Arrasmith who has re
turned from an extended trip over
the state, says the good price of
wheat will undoubtedly result in a
greatly increased acreage this year.
A good portion of the 1905 crop
will be summer fallow, and this
usually runs heavier than new

Week ending Sept. 19, 1904:—
No rain has fallen in the western
or eastern portion of the state since
the eight inst.; the pastures from
lack of moiiture are drying up.
Streams and wells are getting low,
and the roads are exceedinly dusty.
The weather has been generally
clear and warm with more or less
euioke, although it was ideal weath
er for hop picking and harvesting
oat and late wheat crops which are
now practically finished: Thresh
ing and hauling whaat to waae
houses is rapidly progressing. Some
plowing is being done and seeding
of winter wheat, but it is too dry
for the work to proceed in general.
The corn crop in Klickitat county
is reported good, ripe, and being
Potato digging is progressing;
the crop is reported light; quality
excellent. The apple crop yield will
be large. Fall picking has com
menced. Plums, apricots and prunes
in most places are reported as fail
Rain is ver/ much needed to re
vive the pastures and to put the
ground in condition for general
farm work, also to extinguish the
forest fires and lay the dust.

So much curloßlty was awakened bj
.the statement made at the annual meet
ing of the Massachusetts Horticultura
■" iety that the society had receivec
inure than $300,000 from the Mount Au
iriirn ct'iii' tery corporation that It was
Ided to give out an explanation ol
why the money was paid.
It appears that In 1829 there waa not
an ornamental cemetery In the world
and sevt ral Boston men, including Dan
iel Webster and Edward Everett, felt the
need of a beautifully laid out burial
place. Hy 1831 the Idea had taken shape,
after having been presented to the Horti
cultural society, to which all the men
Soventy-two acres of land, which now
forms about the central part of Mount
Auburn, was bought, and was conse
crated on September 24 of the seme year.
Friction arose, however, between the
cemetery committee and the Horticul
tural society proper, so that in 1834 the
two had to separate.
The terms of the separation provided
that, the proceeds of the sale of any lot*
In the 72 acres should be divided be
tweon the society and the cemetery com
mittee, one-quarter to the society and
three-quarters to the Mount Auburn cor
It was thus that the $300,000 has been
turned over to the Horticultural society
by the Mount Auburn committee.

King Edward VII. has given hi» con
sent to the marriage of his niece, Prin
ces* Alice of Albany, to Prince Alex
ander of Teck.
It seems odd to Americans that an
uncle, not a guardian, should have the
power to forbid the marriage of his
niece. But the king of England has
such a power by act of parliament.
This act provides that all descend
ant* of George 11., except the issue of
princesses married into foreign houses,
are incapable of contracting a mar
riage without the consent of the reign
So King Edward may forbid the mar
riage of his sisters and his cousins and
his aunts and all degrees. Uncles and
nephews, no matter how remote, may
marry whom they like, if the king co
incides, but not otherwise.
What an unspeakable bore It must
be to be a king. And what slavery
for the kinfolk who cannot bestow their
love upon the objects loved. But it
is admitted that the law creates no prac
tical inconvenience, since the sovereign
is good-natured and doesn't exercise the
veto power except in the case of chil
dern. or, perhaps, to prevent a po
litically inexpedient marriage of an heir

regular communication with the moth

the outside world 1b by an occasional
banana steamer from New Orleans, or
a loaky logwood schooner infested with
cockroaches. The colonists are a com
munity of hermits, so far as the great
world in concerned. They hare no ca

the globe, and they generally hear of a
great event about six months after It
They celebrated King Edward's cor
onation on the day originally appointed
for it, and did not hear of his illness
until weeks later. When at last the
king was crowned, his royal subjects in
British Honduras were holding inter
cession services to pray for his recov

An attempt is to be made to domesti

to catch large numbers of wild zebras
and allow them to breed in captivity,
training the young as draft animals.
No attempt apparently will be made
to tame and train the captured ani

often been accomplished with selected
The zebra proper is very difficult to
