The Carbonic acid gas was calculated to get the leavening strength ana the quantative analysis to ascertain the comparative wholesomeness, purity, and general usefulness of the leading Powders. The result of Prof. Collier's examination and test, reveals the fact, that, with but one exception, every brand tested contained either Ammonia or Alum, and a number both. Not one woman in ten thousand would use an Ammonia or Alum Baking Powder if she knew it Such Powders not only undermine the health, but ammonia imparts a sallow or blotched complexion. __, . ... , Note —Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder, as shown by Prof. Collier a examinations, is the only pure Cream Tartar Powder found free from adidter th..

The ground is now in better condition than when plowing began last spring. More rain has fallen in the last two months than did all last winter. In October the rainfall was 1.07 inches, but 1.37 inches has already fallen in tbe present month. It seems likely now that the deposit of moisture for tbe winter will be equal to that of 1886, which made the glorious crops of the next year. The farmers are greatly enoouraged by the prospect and a big acreage will be put in this fall and in the spring.

Hardy, convicted of grand larceny, for a term of five years. The term will date from the arrival at the penitentiary, where be will be taken to day. It is the general belief here and at Spokane that Hardy Is the chief of the gang of horse thieves that have so successfully worked this country for several years past He well deserves tbe sentence passed Upon him.

Coburn et al. The defendant demurred to the com plaint. Tbe demurrer was sustained by the court, and tbe case rests for the term on the tiling of tbe amended complaint. Harry Ridgway vs The Lewiston National Bank and John Keenan. This is a suit on contract and was tried before the court who now has tbe matter under advisement. ex of of There were but two new cases of diph theria this week and both in the infes ted neighborhood. They will continue to develop no doubt till the cause is re moved. When will the Board of Health take action in having the old pack shed floor cleaned up and purl fled? Two weeks now are passed and nothiug is yet done. Rain and the wet weather only aggravate the cause. How many more lives must be endan gered before proper action is taken in the matter.

Robbins was depu tized to convey him to the capital He broke into a house recently and stole fifty dollars. This is his second offense and it is thought best to cage the bird before further damage is doiie He was lodged in jail here more than a week.

The gentlemen were in the stage, proceeding from Warm Springs to Hailey, wheu tbe vehicle was over turned, the passengers being hurled violently to the ground. Congressman Sweet struck the back of his head against a sharp corner, and sustained painful Injuries. Attorney General Roberto received bad bruises upon va rious portions of his head and body. Attorney Parsons was crushed so se verely that a hemorrhage of his lungs resulted. All the other gentlemeu were badly shaken up and bruised, and it will be some days before they have entirely recovered. Tbe cause of the accident was a mistake of the driver of the stage. Near where the vehicle was overturned two roads oonverge, one being lower than the other. Tbe driver thought that he had arrived at the place where he usually leaves the upper road for tbe lower, but when he swung his animals around he realized that he had made a blunder.

San Jose Fruit Scale! CONSIDERED TO IE A DEADLY FRUIT PEST Protect Tour Trees! Ladies Of the United States to Show Their Friendship to the French People. of at he Much attention has been attracted both in Washington and this state to the appearance of some of the deadly fruit pests in the orchards. The San Jose scale is the most common of these. It is a product of California and It to brought into this country by the Im portation of California fruit L. D. Morris of Yakima, lost this year a fine orchard valued at $6000. A box of California fruit was brought to hto place one day and left under one of the trees. The scale soon attacked that tree and spread to the entire orchard ruining both the fruit and the trees. This pest has also appeared In Lewis ton. Many of the orchards are Infested. L. A. Porter brodght to our notion specimens of fruit rained by the scale. A limb of the same tree showed the effect of the deadly pest Orchards will have to be carefhlly guarded and thoroughly disinfected or a quartntioe will be placed upon all fruit or trees going out of this place and the market rained. Both Washington and Idaho have passed stringent laws concerning the matter. The Washington state Board of Horticulture at its recent sion decided that the moot effective work in dealing with the fruit pests could be done in tbe winter, When the trees were in a manner dormant. To penetrate the wooly material with which the eggs of many noxious In sects are surrounded and the scales of the San Jose pest, a strong wash to needed, and one can be used In the whiter that is five times stronger than one which would Injure the foliage at another time. Lyes and sulphur can be used in the off season without In jury, as can also soap and kerosene emulsions. The board have frirther is sued a bulletin containing the names and description of certain insects that i u fest the orchards of their state, gtoo the remedies recommended, that grow ers may adopt and use such remedies for the extermination of such Insects and fruit pests. The most dangerous of these dreadful Insects are the San Jose scale, tue Red scale, White scale and the Codlln Moth. Under the reg ulations all persons dealing In Infested fruits shall disinfect the same before putting it on the market. All boxes, bales, crates, sacks or other material shall be burned or disinfected by some known destructive solution. All fruit growers are notified that they shall disinfect and destroy all such insects betöre selling or offering tor sale such fruit. Tbe law prescribes that any person neglecting or refusing to com ply with tbe regulations shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and fined not lees than $25 or more than $100, and the material Infested shall be declared a nuisance and abated at the cost of tbe party convicted. The Idaho law to very similar and our growers will have to take all due regard to the condition of their orchards and fruit, or suffer the penalty of toes of market An Inspector has been appointed by the State board and all orchards will be inspected. It might be well for tbe careful grower to send to C. A. Tom eson, Tacoma, Wash., and get tbe blü hten issued and give attention toward exterminating theee pests. at In or The leading ladies of the United States have formed an association for the purpose of erecting a memorial statue, to be sent to the French people as a gift, signifying our amity and friendship for tbe citizens of that re public.
