Nurserymen in Michigan are now compelled to give bond
for $1,000 that their trees are true to name and free from
pests. Good law.
The Skookum Box Factory has changed its name to the
Skookum Box & Lumber Co. Its motto as printed on its
stationery is: "Not How Cheap, but How Good."
A gentleman recently in Fairfield says that the people of
that town are endeavoring to have a beet sugar plant located
there. A young man, who heard the remark, says he has a
plant of that kind and it's a most successful success. Beats
fugar, beats honey, or anything else in the saccharine line.

The city hunters, as a rule, are a nuisance. The exceptions
aie too few to prove the rule. If they fail to shoot the best
cr.w or steer on the farm they will scare off all the fat which
has accumulated in the few days preceding their visit. As a
rulfc, in their ecstacy at the prospect of getting some little
bird, they forget the direction of the dwelling or the feed
lots, and are very apt to shoot that way.
Certainly upon the showing of the agricultural depart
ment itself this showing broadcast of cheap, common seeds in
packets —"free," since they only cost the government a mere
bagatelle of $150,000 a year—should be stopped. It is not
probable, however, that it will be, since the political sowers
wil be abroad again next year in force, sowing packets in
the hope of reaping ballots.—Oregonian.
Taking everything into consideration, I am led to believe
that Mr. McDonald, the state dairy commissioner, pursued
the very best policy in settling in such a firm manner with
the restaurant men, the cases he brought up against them
la&t week for serving patrons with oleomargarine without
notifying them by means of signs or announcing the fact on
their bills of fare. Mr. McDonald has given those fellows to
understand that he means business, and the result is that they
will have a little more respect for the statutes.

Seed that has bad weeds in it, such as spiny nightshade,
ex-eyed daisy, Canada thistle, or rib leaf plantain is dear at
any price and should not be sown. Seed that contains tim
othy seed, alsike, or even the common weeds, such as hog
weed, fox tail, etc., is comparatively harmless. These can
be taken out with a good fanning mill, and even if sown
would add very little to the stock of these weeds that are al
ready in the ground. We would buy the seed, therefore, now,
because we can get it cheap and because we can select and be
sire of getting seed, the use of which will not compel us
plant and cultivate weeds that will be a curse to the farm in
'i ne prospects are that a large acreage of alfalfa and clover
t?ted will be sown next year. With the amount of stock cattle

RANCH AND RANGE
we are getting into the Northwest there will be a necessity
for a much larger acreage in grass, and in all grass mixtures,
for west of the Cascades the common red clover should form
096 of the principal ingredients. We suggest to our readers
that they buy their seed now.
Messrs. Thomas and B. F. Parker, of the Cowychee, are ex
hibiting the model of a very practical cattle guard which they
liave had patented. When in position, it resembles an or
dinary fence built across the track, but as a train approaches
an automatic arrangement throws it down face to the earth
Avhere it lies until the train has passed, when it assumes an
upright position again.—Yakima Herald.
Within my little cottage are peace and warmth and light;
And loving welcome waiting when I come home at night.
The polished kettle's steaming, the snowy cloth is spread—
And close against my shoulder there leans a smooth brown
Her eyes are lit with laughter (they light the world for
"For how much would you sell me? now tell me, sir!" cries
'Tis then I answer, somehow, between a smile and tear,
"Not for all the gold in Klondike! the gold in Klondike,
When the cosy tea is over, with many a frolic fond,
I sit and read my paper; and from the room beyond
I hear the clink of china, the tread of nimble feet,
And broken bits of singing that somehow ripple sweet.
I hear a rush and rustle behind my easy-chair;
Short, chubby arms enclasp me and choke me unaware!
Into my arms is tumbled a crinkled, golden head,
A ball of fluffy whiteness that ought to be in bed.
She asks her mother's question—l kiss the answer clear;
"Not for all the gold in Klondike; the gold in Klondike,
In dim and dusky office I dig my bits of gold;
I suffer not with hunger, nor perish with the cold.
My nuggets needs be tiny (I dig them with a pen),
But the Yukon's golden gravel I leave for other men.
My treasure lies exhaustless, My claim is staked with care:
What is all the gold in Klondike, Since I'm love's million
