COMPARISONS OF CLIMATE.
Some In Both Hemispheres Are Quite
When two regions on different lieml?
spheres possess similar climates there
Is nearly always a similarity In their
native vegetation, und i' Is n demon
Btrated tact that many o( the plants
native to one of the regions find llnun
selves perfectly at homo in the other.
California conditions are markedly
similar to those of the Mediterranean
region, so thai it is no surprise to IIml
more than fifty plants from the latter
region that thrive in California with
marvelous vigor, it is conservatively
estimated that over 75 per cent of the ?
forage mi the California range lands
is Hindu up "f Mediterranean lintlll- j
grants, mostly annuals, such as wild
oats, bur clover, iillllcrillu, broine
grasses, feseuos, wild barleys and
The Croat hasltt and the Columbia
basin resemble California in one
marked respect?namely, that the sum- I
liters are dry and tin- winters wet.
Indeed, the principal difference from
California lies in the colder winters.
The difference has not prevented tin1
Introduction and rapid spread of most
of the Mliropean annuals now so con
spicuous in California, it i-: really
little slmrt of limuxtllg how rapidly
ami extensively some of these plants
have occupied the range lands at the
expense of the native vegetation.
The conditions in Arizona are not ,
very favorable t<> the plants that have
found California conditions so con
genial, with the exception of nltilcrilla.
Arabia of all old world regions is most
like Arizona, and from there, if any
where, we should expect plants adapt
ed to A I'lzomi conditions.
Western Washington and western
Oregon closely approximate in climate
the Itt'ltlsli isles, and practically every
thing that thrives in the one region is
at home in the other.
The middle and south Atlantic states
are similar to Japan ami China in cli
mate, it has long been recogulzed that
till Japanese plants, especially orna
mentals, thrive in this region perfectly.
A number of them are so at home, in
deed, that they have literally taken to
the woods and behave as natives. Wit
ness the Japanese honeysuckle. Japan
clover, nlliinthus, puulownln and the
recently introduced Chinese violet.
The cotton states evidently have
much in common with India and south
eastern Asia, whence we have ob
tained cow peas, crab grass, Itcrmudn
grass, velvet deans and many weeds,
and to a less degree with Argentina,
where rescue grass, carpet ^rrass. pns
palutn grass and a number of common
southern weeds are native.
Of late years there has been Increas
ing evidence that the high plains of
northern Texas resemble the highlands
of India. At least practically every
plant introduced from the India high
lands has succeeded better in the Tex
as Panhandle than elsewhere in the
The great plains region lying east of
the Itoeky mountains and west of the
one hundredth meridian finds its near
est parallel in climate in Asia. This
Is the region that gave us alfalfa.
Homemade Horsepower Pump.
The accompanying sketch shows a
novel horsepower pump which Is used
on a northwestern ranch, This pump
consists of a walking beam twenty to
twenty-live feel l<>m,'. which Is connect
ed at one end to the pump rod and at
the other end to the shall of an old
mower wheel. Tins shaft is lengthen
ed out to about twelve feet and bent

opposite the wheel. The bearings for
this crank are made from a piece of
bar iron. V shaped, with a Hat bottom.
This Iron is bolted dOWIl loosely to a
piece of timber tilted into the ground.
The horse Is hitched on near the
wheel. The V shaped hearing turns as
the horse walks around in a circle, and
the ?rank makes a double stroke for
every revolution of the mower wheel.
Where a well is deep two mower
wheels may be put together to add
tractive weight. A horse soon learns
to operate' Ibis pump without a driver.
Tho Bug Nuisance.
Hr. II. T. Pcnnld of the Massachu
setts Agricultural college says that
live-sixths of all (he living creatures
of tin? globe are Insects and that, not
more than one out of ten is friendly
to man. lie estimates that S'J.OOO.OOO
or $3.000.000 worth of damage Is an
nually Wrought by insects and that
known means of protection, properly
used, COUld prevent tWO-tlllUds of this
loss. He is therefore impressing the
necessity of a close study by all
? lasses of people of this question with
the hope of saving forest and shade
trees ami crops.
How to Exterminate Fleas.
Tin; following directions are given t?
thos?; who are annoyed by liens: In
sect powder Used freely In the house
and about the clothing is recommend
ed by one who tried It. For all out
door buildings use air slaked UlftC.
Scatter the lime about freely.
A surer way Is first to clean all the
loose rubbish out and burn, then take
?ne qtinrt of crude carbolic m id. four
lallOUH of water and a spray pump and
9pray bouse and burn two or three
tln.es and you will get rid of tbein.
