So far there has been practically no damage to the fruit crop in Pay ette valley and the indications are for the bumper crop of the valley this year.

"We also invite all fanciers to be present and organize a State Poultry association.

Murphy of Bordeaux forwards the following from a French journal on a new method of preserv ing eggs, which, he says, appears to have the double merit of cheapness and simplicity. The article was bas ed the experience of Doctor Campanini, as reported by him in the December bulletin issued by the Ital ian minister or agriculture. Doctor Campanini, after reviewing the various known methods of preser ving eggs—by salt water, lime water, silicate of potash, vaseline and cold storage—described his experiments, which showed better results than all others. His theory is that to preserve eggs some system must be adopted that will absolutely prevent the exchange between the air outside and that in side the egg—for it is this continual exchange that causes putrefaction. Doctor Campanini selected perfect ly fresh eggs and covered them with lard, so as to effectually stop up all the pores. The shells were thus with the Association in the matter of making arrangements for the next annual meeting of that body. The prizes to be offered and the fa cilities for the proposed exhibit were mentioned as named as among the things about which early action should be taken. In response to the suggestions of Secretary Price a committee from the club was named to confer with him, consisting of H. W. Dorman, N. S. Miller, Chas. Par sons and A. E. Gipson. The commit tee will doubtless take up the pro posed exhibit soon in order that those who are to contest may have ample time. Fruit Trees Heavily Loaded at Ros well. Manager C. E. Paine of the John Steele orchards, at Roswell, informs the Gem State Rural that the apple and prune crop there promises to be large—the prune trees in par ticular being very heavily loaded. The apples will require vigorous hand thinning and the prune trees will need to be relieved of surplus fruit, but nature looks after the latter in this respect. rendered impermeable, the exchange of air was prevented and, the obstruc tion of the pores not permitting the evaporation of the water, there was no loss of weight. The whites and yellows of the egg retained their col perfectly and the taste was not modified in the slightest degree. When properly coated with lard—not too thickly—the eggs are put in bas kets or boxes upon a bed of tow or fine odorless shavings and so arrang or ■■ ■ sS i T : : > f; m ed that here will be no point of con them—otherwise a mold will develop and putrefaction result.
