SUGGESTIONS FOR PROLONGING THE LIFE OF SILK GARMENTS With both woll and cotton high in price, silk is being used increasingly for both outer and under garments Unless given careful treatment, the lifetime of a garment made from either wool or cotton. The following suggestions for its care are made in a recent bulletin Issued by the United States Depart ment of Agricnlture on the selection and care of clothing. Bilk garments should b'e brushed carefully with a piece of velvet or a very soft brush. Silk may be cut or marred by too vigorous brushing. Spots may be removed in much the same way as from woolen garments. Silk garments may be dry-cleaned at home if one is very careful to use gasoline or other inflammable fluids out of doors where there can be no risk of explosions; or it may be ad visable to send them to a professional cleaner. Suds made of neutral white soap or soap chips and cold or luke warm water should be used for wash able. silk garments. White silk shirts and waists washed in such suds, wrapped In a both towel to absorb the extra moisture, and then pressed with a warm Iron, will not turn yellow* for a long time. Avoid expo sure to strong light while drying, and really hot irons, for both tend to turn white silk yellow. Silk must be pressed carefully; In foot, irons should be used on it as littWaa oossible during either makins Strand Wednesday & Thursday I A Snappy, Full of Real Action Northern Picture Called, "The Girl And The Law" Also 4TH EPISODE OF THE "MOONRIDERS" and an up-to-date weekly.

If healthy breeding stock is obtained, the houses and yards kept clean, and careful attention given tto the birds, disease and parasites should not be a troublesome factor in squab raising. The stock should be carefullv watched and any sick birds removed I from the breeding pens. The house 'should be kept dry, clean, well venti lated, and free from drafts. Have the floor covered with 1 inch of fine gravel and rake off frequently the manure which collects ort the top Keep the yards clean either by scrap ing the surface and adding fresh sand or gravel, or by digging over the land and. if poss'ble, planting it to grain. The nests, nest boxes, and pens should be kept clean, but it is not advisable to disturb more than neces sary the nests that contain eggs o~ squabs. Spray the pens frequently with whitewash containing a little crude carbolic ac'd. or with a coal-tar disinfectant; examine the birds for feather lice, which are troublesoni", having many lice should be treated with sodium floride, either dusting b/ the pinch method or dipping in a solu tion, the latter method being pro should be cleaned out and the nest ing material removed whenever dirty, care being taken not to disturb the squabs any more than is absolutely necessary. PUTTING FLESH ON FLOCK AH MARKETING TIME NEARS Four Methods of Fattening I'oulty Ad vocated by United States Depart ment of Arglculture Specialists. Until late summer or early fall, the majority of poultry raisers make little effort to fatten their birds. Up to this time the flocks are usually left on free range and their gains are more of growth in size than flesh. In September, however, the wise among those who have birds to dis pose of confine the surplus of their flocks and put them on a fattening ration. Three methods of fattening poultry are practiced In this country—pen fattening, crate fattening, and ma chine cramming. The first two are the most common to-day, poultry spec ialists of thp United States Depart ment of Agriculture say, while the third ,1s used in a few places where fine quality Is appreciated. Pen fattening is practiced by manv people who do not have time or incli nation to use other methods. The essentials of pen fattening are quite,' and plenty of soft feed given at reg ular intervals, usually three times a day. Birds may be kept in flocks of 15 or 20, but the sexes should b* separated. Only cockerels are usually fattened, as it pays to keep the pullets for laying. In crate fattening a few fowls are confined in crates and fed from a [trough. A crate 6 feet long, 18 inches high, and 18 or 20 inches wide is suitable and is large enough for a dozen birds. Sometimes such a crate is divided into two or three compart ments, with four to six birds in each compartment. Only a little room for the birds to move about Is desirable, J for the less the exercise a bird obtains the more rapidly it fattens. The top, | back, and ends of the crates should be solid if they are to be placed out doors, but if they are to be in a build ing they may be built of lath or wire. These slats should be 2 inches apart in front, so as to permit the birds to eat from the troughs, which are hung I just outside the coop. The slats of the bottom of the coop should be about 1 inch apart to permit the droppings to fall through. In indoor feeding the crates are placed In tiers to save space and ar range to allow for convenience in feeding and to give the chickens good ventilation. They are usually fed three times a day and are permitted to eat for half an hour at a time, when, the uneaten feed Is removed. The chickens should be given a heavier feed at night than in the morning or, at noon. For the highest quality a machine is essential, especially for the last 10 days; otherwise the birds wil not eat nearly so much as they can digest j and assimilate. The labor involved by this method makes the cost rather excessive in this country. In this method thf> bird is held between the 1 arm and side of the operator and the machine, which consists of a reser-j voir and small force pump, is oper- The Dag After STETSON, NO-NAME, or VARSITY HAT.

The head of the chicken Is grasped In the left hand and the rubber tube gently inserted until it reaches the crop, the neck being " elongated as much as possible. The lever bar is lowered by the foot and the foo.l is thus forced into the crop. When the crop is sufflc'ently full the tube is removed. Any chickens having feed in their crops at the next feeding period are not given any fresh feed. FIGHT AGAINST FRUIT PESTS GOOD FALL AND WINTER .IOIJ \ In order to increase the production of fruit it is essential that fruit grow ers wage a continuous fight on, or chard pests. Some of the most valu able control work can be accomplished during the fall and winter months. Certain destructive insects are held in check only by spraying during the dormant period of trees, when much stronger washes may be used thaa when the tres are in foliage. Many Insects spend the winter on the tree in the egg, larva, or pupal stage, and the'r destruction in the course of pruning and other orchard work is pract'cable and is of much impor tance in keeping them reduced. Cer tain fungous and bacterial diseases, particularly pear blight and apple canker, are best worked upon at this Practically all of the orchard scala insects can be successfully controllol by spraying the trees after the foliage has dropped. This work may be done either in the fall or during the win ter when the temperature is above freezing and in the spring before the buds come out. During these periods a strong solut'on of lime sulphur lit used by a great many orcharding In controlling San Jose scale and many other serious scale peats. ! Other scale insect pests, such ai the cherry scale, oyster-shell scale, etc., can usually be held in check by the dormant spray with lime-sulphur wash. The treatment is also effective against the per.r leaf blister mite, which is universally present on pears, and In many localities becomes a se rious apple pest. Some plant lie? that are destructive especially to the young apple trees winter in the egg stage and are destroyed by this treat ment. One thing that must be re membered in applying the dormant spray is that the solution should cover every part of the tree or it will not be effective. I ' RHINE SURPLUS VEGETABLES | One of the oldest methods of pre serving food Is by salting it. When the rush of late summer work finds the housekeeper with more garden products on hand than she can can or dry, brining Is the solution of l)er difficulties. | All that ife necessary for brining. United States Department of Agricul ture specialists say, is a crock or bucket, a brine made of 2 pounds of \ salt to 1 gallon of water, a cloth and plate or board, and a heavy weight all of which should be well scalded. For best results vegetables should be blanched in hot water or live steam , before brining. For some vegetables | a weaker brine will do. With string ' beans and a few other vegetables, a .; weaker brine with a little vinegar < added will give satisfactory results. ! I Wash the product, blanch five min- ; utes in boiling water or 10 in live i steam, and put it In the scalded crock; . add the brine, put the cloth over the j top and cover with plate or board. 1 , Place on this scalded weight which is .heavy enough to hold the vegetable 1 below the surface of the liquid. Brine ' of the strength given will act as a 1 preservative without causing any change in the vegetable. ' When the vegetables preserved in this way are desired for use they may i be soaked a few hours in fresh water to remove the salt. They are then ready to prepare for table use. Dande lions, beet tops, turnip tops, spinieh, chard, kale, cc.bbage string beans green peas and corn may be satisfac torily preserved by this method. WHAT CAUSES IMHTUHNI'TS TO ABSORB FAT IN FRYING That fat absorption by fried bat ters and doughs will vary greatly in amount on different occasions, that the more flour thero is In a dough the less fat it absorbs in frying, that reducing the time of frying lessens fat absorption, and that frying dough nuts under fat requires less time than when they are floated in it, are some of the results disclosed in a long se ries of experiments wh'ch the experi mental kitchen of th e United States Department of Agriculture has com pleted recently. Twenty pounds of dough can be so made up and fried as to take up 10 pounds of fat in frying or so made up and fried as to take up only one pound of fat. Doughnuts made with plenty of sugar, butter and eggs ab sorb more fat than those which ar« less rich. The more flour incorpo rated In the dough the less the fat absorption, but sometimes it Is at the expense of the quality of the daugh nut. The longer doughnuts are kept in the frying fat, whether because the fat Ib not hot enough or because the doughnuts are too thick, the greater will be the amount of fat they will take up. At 186 degrees centigrade the temperature fat should be when doughnuts are put in, three minutes will suffice for cooking those which have been rolled to one-fourth inch thickness if the doughnuts are allowed to float in the fat. ,If dough nuts are forced under the fat during the frying, the experiments made prove that better doughnuts will ro sult with less expenditure of time and fuel. Dough rolled to onefourth inch thickness can be cooked in one and one-half minutes by this method at a temperature of 185 degrees C. This method of submersion was found to reduce the cracking during frying and the consequent fat aL sorption. IN TUB SUPKRTOR COURT OF THE State of Washington, in and for Thurston County.
