A court of law is about the hist pla e in the world a fellow should get into. This holds eipiully whether in the ca pacity of plaintiff' or defendant. It is far I- tor if one has a grievance against another to settle it outside of court, while it will be quite generally conceded that one should so conduct himself as not to appear in court in the capacity of defendant. That student stock judging teams are getiing the question of judging down to a point of considerable ac curacy is shown in the score made by lour teams competing at the recent Portland (Oie.i live stock show. The Idaho team ranked tirst with a total of Mb, points out of a possible ff.onff; the Oregon team stood second with a score of k'.lifii points; Washington, third with •-'..'till points, while Utah stood fourth with g.g.H" points. Tilt* federal pure food investigators are looking into a trick that is being worked by a certain class of middle men in the matter of starving live chickens and then stalling thorn on a diet consisting of a little ground meal at si a good deal of pulverized rock and sand. The chickens eat of tlsis mixture greedily, and at the time they are sold to the economical housewife she pays from '.'ti to 2."> cents a pound for from seven to eight ounces of this truck. The department of agriculture has is sued a most timely warning to potato growers along the line of exercising great caution in the use of secondhand foreign potato sacks, which are likely to contain the spores of a number of serious potato diseases. The sacks may lie sterilized by heating with live steam for an hour or Isdling for two or three hours in water. Unless secondhand sacks are guaranteed to lie sterilized or one can do tlie sterilizing himself none hut new sacks shun Id be used. Director Evans of the Missouri fruit experiment station at Mountain Grove, Mo., lias succeeded after years of ex perimenting in crossing tlie Jonathan and Ben Davis apples. The reason for making the cross was not with the idea of getting a fruit that would be superior to the Jonathan, but a tree that would be able to withstand tlie cold winters which have visited the Ozark apple region in late years. The cross was effected by fertilizing the pistils of a Jonathan blossom with the pollen from a Ben Davis stamen. Wlint is said to be the lirst spineless cactus ranch of the southwest is soon to be established near Kl I'aso, Tex. Seven hundred plants of the variety originated by Luther iiurbauU of Cali fornia have been ordered, it is claim ed that each plant will produce thirty five stalks per year and that these leaves make excellent fodder for horses, cattle and hogs. The cactus flourishes on alkali soil and in the dri est climate, and if it makes good in practical tleld tests it will be a great boon to vast areas at. present prac tically desert in the great southwest. The leaf roller, an insect that in its larval state is a small greenish worm and takes its name from the fact that it makes its nest by spinning a web on one side of a leaf and curling it, has been doing a good deal of lumage in western orchards during the past two or tlwce years. The worm not only devours the leaves of the trees, but eats boles in the small fruit. About the only methods of control are winter pruning, which removes many of the egg clusters, and spraying with n kero sene emulsion or Itlaek leaf solution shortly before the eggs hatch in early April. The other day on a sunny knoll in the spacious grounds of the depart ment of agriculture at Washington Secretary Houston presented diplomas of merit to eighty-two hoys and girls, prize winners from an army of '200,000 of the brightest .and most enterprising boys and girls in the United States iu contests for the raising ot bumper crops of corn, potatoes, tomatoes and poultry. It is worth recording the fact also that these same hoys ami girls had their ear fare and other expenses paid from their homes to Washington and return, beside- receiving valuable cash prizes A little seventeen-year-old miss of Cedar Calls, la., was the slate's win ner iu the tomato growing contest and u ;s one of the company of eighty or more bright bo.\s jnid girls that were given a free trip to Wash':: ! u.

If llie bed is made early care should be taken to have a covering of hay. straw or old carpeting handy for ci Id snaps. A good many hotbeds dis appoint because they are too hot and have too little moisture. Before trans !' fling plants to the open ground, when milder weather comes, it is well to leave the sash off for several days in order to harden the little plants. Early radish and lettuce may lie grown in the hot hod; also set onions, early enbbage ami cauliflower, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and pansy plants. THE WORST FRUIT PCST. The citrus fruit growing industry of the United S. tes. and this itppii. s tit present chiefly to California ami Florida, stands in great peril of e.\ termination unless a rock ribbed quar antiue is maintained against foreign fruit tint is infested with the mag gots of the Mediterranean fralt fl.r, known to entomologists as Cerntitis eapitata. The liy is about the size of the common housefly, yellow in color, with eyes of n reddish purple tint and with a blackish blotch in the center ot the forehead, from which spring two bristles. The eggs of the insect are often laid at from six to twelve inches underground, and no liquid has been found that will kill the maggot (hat does not at the same time kill the foliage of the plant or tree upon which it happens to he feeding. The mag gots have been known to survive a half hour bath in spirits and in kero sene oil. The most dreaded feature of this pest is that It works solely front tlie inside of the fruit, while the out . side is apparently all right. While the i fly is partial to citrus fruits, it nlso feeds on peaelies and other fruit* and ! also vegetables. The fly came qrigi nally from the fruit districts of the i Mediterranean, but has spread to New ; Zealand, Australia, the Hawaii n Is ; lands and even Bermuda. All illustra | tion of the devastation whieli follows its coming is shown in ease of one ot i the islands of the Hawaiian group, where the fruit growing industry was wrecked within a year after it put in an appearance. TWO IMPORTANT FACTORS A hog raiser with whom the writer was talking the other day said that his hogs had not been hit with cholera for more than twenty years and this in spite of the fact that many of ids neighbors had sustained severe losses. He referred to two features in connec tion with tile care lie gave ids hogs that may have had a good deal to do with their freedom from disease, and the writer is inclined to the opinion that tlie points mentioned do not re ceive the attention they deserve from the average farmer. Our friend said these hogs had u pure spring as the source of their water supply through out the year, while in feeding them— and this was particularly during the warmer mouths- he always fed them in a new and clean place. It would bo interesting to know just bow many of the ills that swine suffer from they contract simply because they are hogs and also how many they fall victims to because they are compelled to exist under insanitary conditions. SETTINC WINDBREAKS, The United States forest service has issued a bulletin containing tlie fol lowing suggestions for those who are planning to sot out windbreaks in tic spring: Place the windbreak at right angles to the direction of the injurious prevailing winds; devote from one eighth to one-tifth of the farm to tim ber; plant only varieties of trees suited to windbreak use to the region and to the locality; plant rapid growers for quick results, but undcrphuil with slower growing species that are usual ly longer lived and more valuable; sup plonieilt a deciduous windbreak wit! evergreens to a,ford prote tion in win ier; s -partite trees by spacing properl for the species used; make the wind break thick from the bottom up, esj-e eially on the sides cxp ised to the wind cultivate the t-iantatioii thoroughly while it is young; do n->t allow execs Five crazing where reproduction is de sired and do not thin the word lot too heavily or rake 'tit the best trees for minor uses. AGAINST ODDS. There is jiii intervtil of a few months In tlio life "f young feeding cuttle im mediately following the failure of pas ture in the fall when they are likely not to do well, in a good many cases this is proliahly due to the fact that they do not take readily to the dry winter feeds and are often nosed away from tile feeding racks and troughs if fed with older aniinaln. Where possi ble cattle of this age should he kept by themselves and should be fed with ref erence to prevent this retarding of their growth referred to above. It is a good plan to re-enforce their rations of roughage and grain with a small al lowance of oiimenl daily. This will give them needed protein, will keep the bowels in good order and will help to put them and keep them in a thrifty condition. Sometimes the unthrifty condition referred to is aggravated by lice and the bacterial disease known as scabies. Itoth these pests can be done away by spraying the animals with dips. or. better, giving them the tank treatment with some of the same stuff. A calf can't make much head way when it is short on protein on its insidos and long on lice and scabs on its outside. A PERPLEXING PROBLEM. It is not surprising that the average fanner is a bit perplexed on the best methods to follow in regard to han dling hog cholera. In several oases which lune come ttuder the writer's notice the following varied results have been noted: in one instance a hog raiser lost fourteen, gave the rest tile serum treatment.', and no more died In another ease fifteen died, and the remaining twenty-four did not eon tract the disease, although nothing was done to stop its progress. In still an other instance a farmer had all of Ills hogs inoculated, some eighty or ninety, before the cholera appeared at all. lait in a few days It broke out and took all of them. In a fourth instance a farm er took no furtln>r precaution than to give his tiogs plenty of range and keep their ipiarters clean and sanitary, ami to date lie hasn't lost an animal, though there is no telling when he may tie lilt. The gist of tile matter seems to be that the serum treatment is gen erally a satisfactory preventive of the disease when the serum is pure and when it is injected by a competent vet erinurlnn. If these two conditions can not he had It is probably better to let it atone. A RAT EXTERMINATOR. A man in .lava lias hit upon a new method of exterminating ruts. After try ing several plans without much success he hit upon the use of carbon bisulphide First he stopped up all visible rut holes with earth to ascertain which holes were Inhabited, for those that were inhabited he found reopened on the following morning. He then pour ed half n teuspoonful of the chemical Into each one of the holes, and after waiting a few seconds for the liquid to evaporate the mixture of vapor and air was ignited. The small explosion which resulted filled the runways with poisonous gases and killed all the rats in a Jiffy. In using this exterminator eare should lie exercised, as the chem ical is of a very explosive character and its fumes are poisonous. A SUGGESTION Here is nil idea for some render who bus 11 stretch of river bottom Itinil tlint Is subject to overflow to su h nil ex tent ns not to be.tl! for posture and yet is too sandy to lie lit for growing crops. The instance which gives tile Idea came under the writer's notice the other day In the shape of the record of the growth of a block of cntalpa trees that were set out on a tract such as that described eight years ago. A sam ple cut was eight Inches In diameter at the ground and was thirty-five feet high. The trees were straight and ex cellent for post timber and oflier uses. This tract, formerly considered worth less because it yielded no return. Is to day considered by its owner one of the most valuable tracts on his farm. A VALUABLE DISCOVERY, Bulletin 5(11. issued a short time ago by the federal department of agricul ture, takes up the question of the grow ing of beans in considerable portions of eastern Washington, eastern Oregon and northern Idaho, where it lias been the practice for years past to summer fallow the land alternate seasons. Ex periments covering a period of fifteen years show that as good cereal crops can lie grown following a crop of beans as after summer fallow. It costs s(i per acre more to grow, harvest and market a crop of beans than It does to summer fallow an equal area. The beans yield about Son pounds per acre and sell for H cents per pound, or s2l per acre. This leaves a margin of $lB in favor *f growing I cans. SKUNKS VERSUS BEES. In view of the good word sp iken In behalf of the skunk in a re ent govern meat bulletin and referred to in this department, particularly as a vora cious devourer of cocoons of range caterpillars, it is a somewhat damag ing charge which a reader of the Rural New Yorker makes against the skunk as a ruthless destroyer of Ills bees. He noticed that Ids hives were becoming so depleted that tlie.v were not produe tug .any honey and. suspecting skunks as the cause, set traps and caught three If readers of this department have had their hives dwindle during the summer months it would lie well for them to follow up the above clew and see if skunks are the cause.
