TiikOais frequently receives lit ters of inquiry about Ariola. and as a general anwcr in r iiy to such in quiries, will say tii.it Ariola is a town on the Southern Pacific Railway where tlic Florence Irritfatinji Canal cro-scs tin! track. Three year ak" it was a desert; toflay there is a railway sta tion at which all passenger trains of the Southern Pacific stop regularly, a t olograph otfiee, a iost o!li'o. an ox press oftiec. a hotel, a store, a school liouse. a printing oSice, a stockyard and chute for shipping cattle, and a thrifty and enterprising community, with a new spaper, ThkOams. to speak for them. Three years ago the spot on which Arizola stands was taken up as desert land, for which the govern ment was paid one cloliar and twenty five cents per aero. Today town lots are selling rapidly from one hundred dollars up. and cultivated laud sur rounding the town is worth from forty to sixty dollars an aero and upward. That is what has lieen done at Arizola in three years. Come and join in the grand work of making Arizola a pros perous city.

A circular lias been sent from i'c many to loading foreign countries asking for information as to the pros pects of employment to university men in the learned or skilled profes sion. The appeal caiis attention afresh to the well-known fact that. Kcrniany is becoming terribly over stocked with highly educated men. In this respect, however, little help can lie given by ot her count ri"s. They are all in the same predicament. The lime is past when a line education was a guarantee of a good jn.-.il ion or indeed of any at nil. On Cie other hand, the culture and ivtine mejit which such an education implies is often only a drawback to its pos sessor by making the coarser forms of wage-s!icry more painfully humiliat ing to him than if he had not' hoped for betler thing-. The njultiplica- Pin-ilie Warnl Pre. This being the season of ineiihat ion of poultry. I thought I would give some of my experience of the past year. We Mailed at Iaueka. Cal.. in the beginning in lrj. with four hens and one rooster, and wo raised forty fowls besides the cockerels, which we sold as broiler during the seaaon. and wo never lost a single chick by disease or otherwise. Our success was so remarkable that our neighbors often spoke of it: but the secret of our success was the pains taking care which we bestowed on our fowls. We lived on rented prop erty, and when wo started in raising fowls the place and chicken-houses were infested with chicken tleas. which I exterminated by scattering a plentiful supply of wood ashes about the place and on the lloors uf the chicken houses. 1 kept on hand large iiantities of finely pulverized road dust, which, after cleaning the Houses of the droppings, would ift over the lloors to deodorize and ren der innoxious any etlluvia which mifcht arise: also. 1 would place old barrels on their sides, in which 1 would put road dust for my setting hens. The same barrels with road dust were u healthy place for the hens w ith their broods at night, and the deodorized droppings could be easily removed. We never gave soc food to the young chicks, but. for the first week after hatching, would boil an egg hard and then mix it with oat meal so as to make it a dry as possible. Chick ens will thrive remarkably on such feed. After the til's I week we fed crumbs, cracked corn and whoa;. Whenever a chick would get droopy my wife would give it :JX nux voui about two or three crops in a little sweet oil -and in a day or two it would be all right. Hut wo had very few sick chicks for the reason thst the yard-, henhouses, drinking vessels and everything about the precises were kept clean. Again, w e never let our young chicks out in the morning until the dew had dried oil, or when it was rainy. In the autumn we had as healthy a lot of fowls as I ever saw nut a single sick bird, no mites, lice or tleas, and they commenced laying at five moiiMis. Where the soil is damp, chicken houses should be floored, a the drop pings of fowls falling fin damp soil causes exhalations to arise, which is inimical to tli" health of poultry breathing the sam; and is a fruitful source (coupled with diafts of air; of roup. To watch and care for t he san itary eondit ions i,f fowls contributes as much or more to the suoec of the poultry-raiser as any t hing else. T. S.
