"We want to become a state," says

ble between San Francisco and Hon
olulu, I have a bill already prepared,
which I will Introduce when Congress
meets, to authorize the laying of a
cable between the Islands an- Califor

"I do not enre whether the cable is
laid by a corporation or by the gov
ernment. 1 am told there are numer
ous business men who are eager for
the necessary authority to lay a ca
ble from San Francisco to Honolulu,
thence to the Philippines. I am satis
fied that the next Coneress will en
act the necessary legislation.
"When the cable is constructed there
will Im* a fresh impetus added to the
commercial relations between the
United States and the territory of Ma
nila."

Poultry for Market—Minor Harm Notes
The Yuralpo cherry crop has been
harvested and it amounted— as nearly
an can be figured out-to IGO.OOO to
170.000 pounds. The crop In tho up
jier Yucalpe was cut short by late
fro*t« elso the total would have been
much larger.— Redland* Cltrograph.
"A Snnta Paula man recently dis
posed of three carloads of beans to a
Boston coffee house."— Times. Yes.
and the aforesaid coffee house will
send them back to California In nicely
printed packages and sell them to the
bean grower at 25 cents a pound, if
that Isn't Intensive culture we'd like
a better Illustration.— Cultivator.
Paint for Poultry Howe*
Rough buildings can be cheaply
painted, kept wholesome and clean,
both outside and Inside, by making a
thick paste of bolletl rice, then adding
fresh whitewash. Spanish whiting and
sweet milk, making it of a consistency
to spread well with a brush. It will
be found very durable, and of course
it Is not expensive. Half the trouble
In Southern California poultry yards
comes from unpalnted chicken houses,
which are so convenient for vermin.—
Los Angeles Herald.
Prune Figure*
The California Cured Fruit associa
tion, according to President Bond's re
port, has under contract SM"- acres.
32.236 acres being in Santa Clara \ al
ley, or S7 per cent, of the total acre
age of the State. There are 3737 mem
bers of the association. clghty-f«.e
packing houses and five receiving sta
tions.
The Inspector's department has cost
$23,324.41. or 371£ cents per ton. to
date: total cost of Insurance. $31.
621.40. The president says n mistake
was made In placing the basis price at
3 cents In view of the large crops of
fruit that were harvested last year in
thU country and In Europe.
The receipts of fruit for the year In
the vaious warehouses amount to 124.
912.102 pounds; total sales. 139.417.491
pounds, leaving on hand. 65,506,611
pounds. The total receipts are $ 1.730.
640.61. The office expenses. Including
salaries, advertising, taxes, etc.. ag
gregate $93,229.23. which Is more than
half chargeable, he says to the fruit

Fighting Purpie Scale
As previously mentioned. Rivera and
Downey orchard lats. under the direc
tion of the Horticultural Commission,
are carrying on a determined and vig
orous campaign against the purple
scale.
Inspector Maskcw la personally su
pervising the work and reports regu
larly to the commission. He takes full
and careful notes nml tho experiments
bid fair to be of great value, not only
by reason of ridding that section of
the pest, but showing efficacious meth
ods therefor.
So far. contrary to generally-ac
cepted Ideas, the distillate wash has
proven successful, a careful examina
tion of specimens received nhowing
92V4 per cent, killed of all scale, lar
vae eggs. etc. Of courae this means an
other spraying, but resultH ho far are
very natlsfactory. Microscopic exam
ination of the Hcalo treated by fumi

Watch the Pear Slug

nually, h«\ with others of his Ilk, la

time of tbo reunion. Is at hand, .and
tho ownen of pear trees will do well

Not Prepared
Rose gardeners, walnut crowcrt,
vegetable men, and, In fact, the pro
ducer of all kinds of fruits and plants
complain of tho fungolds this season.
Plant life could not be fortified
against the sudden chance from five
yours of desslcated atmosphere and
waterless soil to one of cool and moist
atmospheres. Only tho plants that
have become Imuno to fungus and bac
terial attack through long nge« of re
sistance, have escaped. The oaks, the
sycamore and the wild growth General
ly were never so verdant, never so
revelling In foliage ami wood expan
sion. They have no fear of blight,
mildew, mold, mushrooms, root fungus
rust or other ailment that curl, blister,
devour or destroy In some way tho tis
sue of so many exotics that have not
had time to n».'ht the battles and win.
Next Beanon wo shall probably have
smooth poach leaves, whole walnut
hullsi bright rose foliage and clean
vegetable*. It Is not the climate wo
have this year that did It. but the
change of the climate, If you will per
mit a mild Irish vagary.
Red Spider
An Interesting point In connection
with killing red spider by fumigation
has come to light In the experiments
with fumigation being made at Rivera.
When the purple scale is entirely
killed, Mr. Spider hi as lively as can
bo, the gas "never touched him."
At Covlna this spring, the fumlga
toM were sure they had solved the
spider question with cyanide, but
some doubt wns expressed nn to the
success of the experiment. This Ri
vera experience scorns conclusive. —
California Cultivator.
Raising Market Poultry
In raising chickens for the market
a large fowl must bo selected, which
has superior tnble. qualities, and then,
says I*. T. Trott. a noted breeder way
down In cast Maine, "choose male and
females that are monsters of their
breed nnd hatch the cj?e3 of these co
lossal creatures. The chicks are like
ly to be prize winners. Continue thus
year by yoar. saving the largest of the
hatch for breeders, changing only the
cock, and that for every time a larger
one. For a laying breed, choose a
strain that ranks high among the lay
ers, nnd after testing, separate the
beat layers of tho Hock, hatching only
their eggs for breeders, and culling
year by year."
For Southern California n breed
should be chosen which Is well adapt
ed to the cllmntc, hardy, full of vi
tality when young, nnd moderate feed
ers, for feed Is too expensive for tho
voracious breeds. In this class the
Huff Orpington stands first, beyond
cavil. For a week after wo bought
our small pen. wo feared nome ailment
would Boon end their career, ns they
ate ho little; but they are nil right.—
