of Certain Disaster.
Krasnoyarsk, Siberia, Now. 25.—
It was learned here today that the
train on which Secretary Tait and
his party are traveling over the
trans-Siberia railroad from Vladivos
tok to Moscow had a narrow escape
from being wrecked yesterday at
Chita. A switch in front of the Taft
train became opened when it should
have been shut, but an employe dis
covered this one minute before the
train came along, closed the switch
and kept the train on the proper rails.
Had the train been thrown into the
siding it would have crashed into a
number of freight trains.

North Yakima, Nov. 22.—With
kerosene oil supplied by the China
man owner himself, forty-seven dis
eased hogs were burned up by State
Dairy and Food Commissioner Da
vies and his assistant, Will H. Adams.
The "barbecue" took place on the
ranch of Sam Lung, a Chinaman, just
south of town, where the diseased
hogs were discovered a few days ago
by Mr. Adams. It required 2 5 gal
lons of oil to consume the 47 car
cases. Eleven more hogs in the bunch
were found to be afflicted with the
disease, and will meet the same fate
as the others. Most of them were
afflicted with lumpy jaw, but there
were also traces of cholera and tu

The moving pictures last night at
the Wenatchee theater were high
j class in every respect and deserved
ia larger patronage. Undoubtedly the
'inclement weather was res\i nsilA*
' for the light attendance. The ma
chinery moved smoothly under the di
rection of Louis Micheal, and the
i songs from the phonograph enlivened
! the waits between changing films.
Although the poetical "Louis" hails
from Baltimore he never sings "Oh,
I'm going back, back to Baltimore,"
for his moving picture shows are
making a hit, and as soon as the
crowds get the habit as they have in
Seattle the performances will be wit
nessed by bunches every time they
are presented.
Tonight the moving pictures will
depict "The Runaway Automobile,"
-whfch is a cure for panics and the
blues any old time, and other meri
torious scenes will be "The Stag
Hunt," and the "Frolics of the Ding
Ding Imps."
Illustrated songs, "Keep a Cosy
Corner in Your Heart for Me" and
'"After They Gather the Hay," will
be presented, and also William Lynn,

ten o'clock Saturday morning," said
M. O. Tibbits, president of the asso

Spokane, Wash., Nov. 25.—While
Washington is not included in the
corn states, the crop this year was of
quality and quantity, the average
yield in the state being 27 bushel 3.
It was the best corn year in the his
tory of the state. The acreage yield
in 1906 was 25.2 bushels, 24.2 bush
j els in 1905, and an average for tho
preceding 10 years of 21.1 bushels.
The quality of the Washington crop
in 1907, is rat d at S9, which is more
than six points higher than the av
erage for the United States as a
whole. In Ohio, Illinois and lowa,
recognized as the three greatest
corn states, the average quality was
distinctly lower than in Washington.
With two exceptions Washington al
so had the largest acreage yield of
potatoes this year. The leaders were
Nevada and Wyoming with 200
bushels, while Washington came
third with 15 0 bushels. The average
for the United States was 95 bush
els. The country as a whole did not
do as well this year as in 190G, but
the average yield in Washington was
'much larger than last year, which
was the record until this year. The
average acreage yield in the state in
1906 was 129 bushels as against 102
for the country as a whole, and in
1305 it was 142 bushels. The aver
age for the last 10' years was 133
