One of the largest grain checks ever reported from the state of Washington ■was for $45,364, paid to a wheat raiser of that state for 62,000 bushels of wheat, the product of a 1,500 acre field. A Siberian landowner of the name of Jovanovitch is said to be the larges' sheep owner in the world, having a flock or flocks numbering 1,750,000 head, in the herding and care of which he requires 35,000 sheep dogs. Dairymen received prices for their butter product during the year 1907 which ranged from 4 to 5 cents per pound higher than the prices received during 1906. While this did not mean a large sum for any individual farmer, it meant for all an additional income of from $20,000,000 to $25,000,000. The authorities in charge of the man agement of affairs at Chicago univer sity have lately decided to add a com pletely equipped dairy department to the courses which they already offer. This will include, besides thorough courses of Instruction, an up to date dairy of pure bred Holstein cattle of well known milking strains. With a view to determining the cost of filling silos in different sections of the country the government last year tabulated the experience of thirty-one farmers and, after exhaustive inquiry as to methods and details, found that the minimum expense for filling was 46 cents per ton, the maximum 86. while the average for the total number was 64 cents. On o of the remarkable industrial de velopments of the Pacific coast has been that which has been noted in con nection with the salmon packing busi ness. No salmon was packed for ex port until 1870, when there were two small canneries on the Columbia river. ■*spdaj’ there are twenty-three such es tablishments, fifteen on the Oregon and eight on the Washington side of the river. The present annual output of tlje fish is 1,000,000 cases, worth The effect of a thoroughbred sire in the matter of improving the milk ca pacity of dairy cows has lately been given a practical demonstration at the New York state dairy farm. A scrub or common cow was taken which test ed 220 pounds per year. Her calf, from a thoroughbred dairy sire, showed a butter yield of 275 pounds of butter fat per year, while two cows of the fourth generation gave 450 pounds of butter each. These results would seem to give a black eye to the forty dollar bull theory held by some. With clover seed bringing the price It did this year, in the neighborhood of sl4 per bushel, there was great temp tation to adulterate it with harmful or worthless weed or grass seed, while it Is quite certain that seed of question able quality and vitality was shipped from distant points to satisfy the ex- I traordinary demand for it. In illustra tion of this we have in mind the case 1 of several Mississippi valley farmers who this year sowed clover seed that was quite foul with grass seed native I or at least growing in Wyoming, which , would seem to be pretty conclusive ev- I Idence that the seed came from this j latter region. Whether the seed Is pos sessed of good vitality and came from plants which will be able to stand the winters of the central northern states Is a question which it will take a year or more to determine. An excellent method of treating po tatoes for the blight, which is likely to be a serious menace to the crop in wet seasons, Is to take five pounds of cop per sulphate and dissolve it in half a | barrel of water. To this should be added five pounds of freshly slaked lime diluted to half a barrel in volume In some other receptacle. It is usually considered the more dilute the form in which the two solutions are mixed the better will be the quality of the re sultant bordeaux mixture. This solu tion. which should be of a delicate, light milky blue tint. Is for the blight only. If it is desired to swipe the bugs at the same time, parts green | should be added, first carefully mixed with water in a can at the rate of I about five ounces to a barrel full of the bordeaux mixture. The potato vines should be sprayed for the blight at In tervals of ten days so long as the pest seems to persist. Perhaps the two greatest enemies of the little chicks are dampness and lice, the first bringing on roup and kindred disorders and the second tending to sap the system of the growing chick and either killing it outright as a re sult or tending to make it susceptible to the attack of other ailments. While the chicks cannot always be kept from running out in the wet grass or being In a soaking rain, their coop or roosting place should always be dry and warm. As for the lice, they may be fixed usu ally by rubbing a good strong Insect powder through the feathers of the body and head, by rubbing lard on the head and by putting coal oil in the cracks and on the floor of the coop where the chickens roost. Often the chicks may be supposed to be suffer ing from this or that ailment and look generally dumpy, yet a pest of lice be the real cause of the trouble. A care ful examination of the head and under the wings of each chick will show whether this is the case. There are many parents with a good sized family of children who are so sit uated that there is little chance of their doing much for them financially, but they should see to it. so far as lies in their power, that the children are allowed to make the most of the edu cational advantages which the com munity offers. The report of the state entomologist of Minnesota, who was requested to make a thorough investigation of the green bug damage of last year, is to the effect that the actual damage done by these bugs was very slight, but that the scare was quite serious, resulting in violent perturbations among specu lators on the board of trade. As a result of the operation of pure seed laws in force in several states, houses doiug business in such states this year quoted virtually no prices on good quality clover seed because they were not in shape to guarantee to re tail buyers seed which in many cases was shipped in from other states and under no guarantee, there being no fed eral pure seed law covering the sale of such seed. Recently published data relative to , the creameries of the United States show that there are in the country 6,000 such plants. Of this number 1,800 i companies |re co-operatively managed, , and its number seems to be steadily increasing. Other figures complied show that patrons of the co-operative plants . realized from 2 to 3 cents per pound ■ more for their butter fat than those , who shipped by express and sold to large central plants. The Kansas State Agricultural col lege at Manhattan has done a com mendable work in engaging the serv ices of an expert of the United States forest service for several weeks’ talks to institutes In those portions of the state where the tree planting gospel is especially in need of being proclaimed. Besides this mode of instruction, it has issued a pamphlet on tree culture for study in all of the rural schools. Much practical good should come from ef forts directed along such sensible lines. As showing the value of an accurate testing of the milk yield and quality of the dairy herd it Is stated that be fore Colantha IV.’s Johanna’s milk was tested she was valued at several hun dred dollars. After making a scientific test of her milk her owners refused for her an offer of SII,OOO, while one of her bull calves sold for SB,OOO. It is not likely that a careful testing of the cows of the average dairy herd is going to develop any SII,OOO prize cows, but it will at least enable the dairyman to eliminate from his herd with dispatch those that are not paying for their keep. The small boy about the home may very easily make a nesting place for the wrens by taking a cigar box of good depth or a good sized tin can, cut ting a hole about an inch in diameter in one end and fastening it under the eaves of the shed or house or in the crotch of a tree. Pains should be taken not to have the hole large enough so that the English sparrow can get in. The wrens will not have any trouble finding the nesting place, and the songs they will sing through the summer months, coupled with their tameness and the fact that they are among the best of insect destroyers, will more than make up for the trouble one is put to fixing them a place to nest In. A friend who recently seeded down a piece of greensward bordering the road has set it out to elm trees two or three years old, about the size of a broomstick. While there is no ques tion that in time these little slips will make nice trees, It is going to take seven or eight years longer, and possi bly ten, to get a tree equal In size to what he would have had In six years if he had cut back the roots and branches of trees three inches in diameter and set them out. The writer has a row of | elm trees which were handled in this manner nine years ago which today run from ten to fifteen Inches in diam eter at the ground. While the ash, hackberry, hard maple and box elder may also be transplanted in this way, none of them recuperates as satisfac- I torily from a severe cutting back as do i the elms. A walk across a number of pastures In the locality where the writer lives shows that even in the middle of May, j when they ought to be at their best, so far as rapidity and luxuriance of growth go, they are already badly overpastured. This works injustice not only to the pasture, but a double in justice to the cows which depend en tirely upon the feed it furnishes for sustenance and dairy utility. Doubt less the conditions above noted are to be found in sections all over the coun try. It is an easy matter to pace off and get the dimensions and area of a pasture. If it is carrying cows or horses at the rate of more than one to each acre it is overcrowded, and the long headed owner will put his stock where feed is more plentiful. He may have to pay a trifle more for the next pasture, but this will prove economy in the long run. A NEW WAY TO TREAT FLAX. Considerable interest has been mani fested within the past few weeks in i the announcement which has been ■ made of the invention of a new process of making linen from flax straw, which in years past has been a waste product except for very limited use in feeding and in the manufacture of small quan tities of binding twine. In the foreign | method of treating flax extensively fol j lowed in Holland from sixteen to thir ty weeks are required in the process of transforming flax into linen. First comes the “rotting” or weighting down of the flax straw in popls of water ex ; posed to the sun until the wood or I “shive” rots away. Next comes the “scutching” or beating of the dry straw, followed by the “hackling” or combing, softening and bleaching. By the new process, which is the discov ery and invention of a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the tedious processes above referred to are reduced to mechanical and chem ical operations which are completed in twelve hours, including degumming, softening and bleaching, the finished product coming out a glossy white color and with an expeedlngly tough THE DEMOCRATIC ADVOCATE. WESTMTNSTHR, MP. j fiber. Another point in fhvor or tne . i American process is that it will yield f 250 pounds of fiber from 1.000 pounds . of straw, while the foreign method s gives but 170. In addition to this, the e new process saves the seed and the shive, which is utilized in paper mak !_ ing. while the tow is also a byproduct that is not lost. If the new method does all that is claimed for it. it will t not only do much to put the manufac o tore of linen on a business basis in e this country, but will revolutionize the o manufacture of linen abroad. How e ever, unless the method of growing t flax in this country is likewise revolu „ tionized—that is, put on a basis where there would not lie a rapid depletion of soil fertility—the new process would in the long run mean no boon to the e agricultural welfare of the country. s ADVANTAGES OF RAPE. o i Where sheep, young stock or hogs F are to be fed during the fall and early (- winter mouths there is probably no s method of producing a fine lot of suc -3 culent and nitritious feed that is su -- perior to sowing rape seed in the com f field the last time it is cultivated In addition to the supply of feed which is furnished, a point in favor of the o plan is thdt. covering the ground as it s does, the growing rape takes the place y of just so many weeds that would be 0 pretty sure to befoul the fields if the I, rape were not there. There are a y whole lot of farmers who have not yet p got to the point where they appreciate s the benefits of rape. A few do sow it 1 not only in the corn, but with their e oats and other small grain, as it guar a antees a fall pasture for stock of the kinds mentioned that can’t be beat. - A COUNTY EXPERIMENT WORK. A western lowa county has taken ' advantage of the state law which al -3 lows boards of supervisors to set aside 3 S3OO annually for the purpose of carry- j a ing on agricultural experimental work - at the county farm and this year, in • co-operation with and under the direc -3 tion of the seed corn specialists of the 1 state experiment station, will set aside 1 a portion of the farm for a thorough " testing of the different kinds of seed • corn which are being planted in the community. The several points of va • rlety, yield, early maturity, prepara r i tion of soil, fertilizers and cultivation ■ will be determined so far as possible ■ and the results summarized at the close ■ of the year for the especial benefit of ! the farmers of the county and adjoin ing counties where much the same con ditions prevail. i ■ THE MAN, NOT THE FARM. The vast difference that is often no ticeable between the general appear ance as well as the productiveness of farms lying side by side or in the same neighborhood is quite likely more due to difference in the proprietors and the methods they follow in the conduct of their respective farms than to any original difference in fertility of the soil. An intelligent and farsighted farmer can bring a naturally poor farm up to a fair state of productivity, while a negligent and shiftless one can, with a good deal less effort, bankrupt a nat urally fertile one and make it an un desirable piece of property. “ MORE SEED. ■ A good many have experienced great difficulty in getting a stand of alfalfa. ■ In some cases this seems to have been partly the result of an improper prepa ration of the soil or lack of sufficient , moisture at the time of germination, j but quite as likely to the fact that in-; sufficient seed was sowed. While some ■ authorities in the northern states rec • ommend the sowing of fifteen to eight- ■ een pounds per acre, it is a common practice in Nebraska and Kansas, I where this legume is extensively , grown, to sow from twenty-five to thlr . ty pounds per acre. GUARD THE BIRDS. From this time on through the sum | mer the birds that nest about your home will have the trials of their life 1 in getting their fledgelings past the point where they can use their wings and keep out of the way of the prowl ’ Ing cats. A real service can be ren dered the birds by keeping a sharp ’ lookout and throwing brickbats enough at the feline tribe to give them to un • derstand that at certain times and sea sons their proper place during daylight , hours is under the wood shed or bam. ; HIS TURN CAME. The Way the Liquor Man Got Even With the Bank Teller. j Many years ago there lived in Hut ( land, Vt, two men who bore the same r name, which name we will call W. O. Jones. One of these men was a dap ' per young bank teller; the other was ' engaged in running a cigar store with } a saloon attachment in the rear. This t was In the days of prohibition in Ver j mont. Every three or four weeks the i latter Jones would be haled into the police court and fined for liquor sell ing, which was chronicled regularly In the dally papers. The bank teller grew \r nervous about It, and one morning this a announcement appeared: “W. O. Jones, a the popular young bank teller of the s Rutland National bank, it to be h understood that he is In no way con t nected with the saloon keeper and S hopes their names may not be con i' founded.” a Now, it transpired that a few months i- afterward this young teller failed to ■- appear one morning at his accustomed f window at the bank. Upon a hasty >t examination it was found that $15,000 a or more of the funds of the bank bad also disappeared. The wires were r called into requisition immediately, e and after a few days he was located y in Denver. It was the old story. He r was brought back, incarcerated, tried, y etc. It was now the saloon keeper's turn, e and this notice was duly published in r , the same paper that Issued the pre -0 vlous one: “W. O. Jones, the widely i• known business man of Merchants' a row, wishes It to be understood that he f, is in no way connected with W. O. 1 Jones, tile defaulting bank teller now e in jail, and hopes their names may not h I be confounded.”—Exchange. A POOR GROCER. fudubon’s Lame Attempt to Succeed as a Merchant. It is not generally remembered that the worldwide reputation of Audubon as a naturalist incidentally ue *° his failure to establish himself perma nently as a Missouri grocery merchant and dealer in the best brands of Ken tucky whisky. In 1810 he and Ferdinand Rozier of St. Genevieve loaded a keel boat at Louisville, Ky., with 010 barrels of whisky and groceries and started down the Ohio and Mississippi to St. Gene vieve to open a grocery store. The trip was made during the winter, and the streams were so full of ice that the boat was drawn up against the bank and winter quarters were established just below Cape Girardeau. When St. Genevieve was reached, after the open ing of navigation, the firm of Audu bon & Rozier opened their store and did a prosperous business. But the business was done by Rozier, for Au dubon preferred the woods to the coun ter and devoted more of his time to sketching and stuffing birds than he did to marketing the 310 barrels of Kentucky bourbon or any other gro ceries. This led to a dissolution of the partnership. On April y, 1811, Audu bon. convinced of his unfitness for business, sold out to Rozier and took up the work for which he was better fitted than any one who had lived be fore or who has lived since and from a fourth rate grocer became the grt ornithologist. The grocery business which Audubon abandoned grew until finally it “extended throughout all of upper Louisiana.”—Kansas City Star. A WOMAN OF QUICK WIT. Susan B. Anthony Never Lacked a Ready Reply. Few lives so lend themselves to dra matic narration as Susan B. Anthony’s, says the Delineator. It ranged from tragedy to comedy, with scattered bits of melodrama, she ever in the center of the stage. With her everything was always intensely realistic—not acting. Miss Anthony had a peculiar faculty of condensing a whole speech into a single sentence. For Instance, when she heard men lamenting that the pro fession of teacher was not respected as much as the other professions, “Do you not see that so long as society says woman has not brains enough to be a doctor, lawyer or minister, but has plenty to be a teacher, every man of you who condescends to teach tacitly admits before all Israel and the sun that he has no more brains than a wo man ?” And when Horace Greeley said to her at Albany, “You know the bal lot and bullet go together—if you vote, are you ready to fight?” instantly she retorted, “Yes, Mr. Greeley, just as you fought in the late war—at the point of a goose quill!” Again, when she was talking on divorce and the Rev. A. D. Mayo, thinking to annihilate her, said, “You are not married; you have no business to be discussing marriage,” j “Well, Mr. Mayo,” she answered, “you are not a slave; suppose you quit lec turing on slavery!” His Support. A young colored man in Washington who passed with credit a civil service examination was immediately certified for appointment to the treasury de partment. His old mother, a darky of the antebellum type, insisted upon ac companying him to witness his taking of the oath of office. When the official charged with the swearing in of the new clerk put to him the usual formula with reference to “supporting the con stitution of the United States” the old lady’s eyes were seen to bulge with as tonishment. But she said nothing till she and her son were outside, when, turning to him, she solemnly observed: | “I didn't wanter say nothin’ in there, j Joe, but ’deed, honey, I don’t see how youse goin’ to suppote de United States ( when you ain’t been able till now to 1 suppote your folkses.”—St. Paul Pio neer Press. Bird Structure. Birds belong to the vertebrates, or backboned animals. They are distin guished from the rest of the verte brates by the graceful outlines of their | bodies, by their clothing of feathers, toothless Jaws and the fore limbs, or wings, being adapted to flying. Nature has made many wonderful provisions In the bird, especially in the formation and arrangement of the bones. These are compact and in many cases hollow, thus combining lightness with strength. The first bone of the backbone Is so freely Jointed to the skull that birds can turn their beads around and look directly back. What Displeased Him. Two hunters were making their way across a lush meadow after a rain. The ground was moist and soggy, but their feet by quick stepping could be prevented from sinking more than an kle deep. Suddenly the one in advance disap peared up to his neck in a narrow stream that, owing to the luxuriant growth on the bank, he had observed only as he stepped into It With diffi culty he pulled himself out and began wringing the water from his garments. “Well, darn a country,” he remarked, with feeling, “where they set their creeks up edgewise and hide ’em in the grass.”—Philadelphia Ledger. Dreamers. There was never so much need for real dreamers as there is today. The business man, caring only for “his beef, his beer and his pew in eternity," will laugh scornfully and want to know how his balance sheet would appear did he give way to dreaming, forgetting that his operations originat ed years ago In the vaguest visions; also that happiness is not a necessary compliment of a heavy cash box. —Lon- don Academy. Alms From • Tomb. A remarkable custom which has been uninterruptedly in force for 300 years is yearly observed at Ideford, a secluded parish £ few miles from Chudlelgh. It is that of picking up alms from the donor's tomb in the churchyard. The rector and church warden stand at one end of the tomb, i upon the flat top of which they place coins. The recipients of the charity come up one by one to the other end i of the tomb and pick up the money.— London Standard.
