BEST ADV. MEDIUM VOL. 11. NO. 271. A Very Rich Man Says! 'The American people are prodigal, and our extravagance will have to be paid for by some one. People are taking advantage of prosperity, such as has never been excelled in this country, to he wasteful and extravagant. We are not saving up for the rainy day, for the time of need." How is it with you? Are you saving and creating a fund which will work for you when you can no longer work for yourself? Your common sense tells you that it is better to Save Your Money Now even at a sacrifice, if necessary, than to want or be dependent upon others in your old age. But saving is only half your duty. You must invest your savings wisely. An ideal form of investment is a Certificate of Deposit in the Col umbia Valley Bank of Wenatehee. These certificates are issued for deposits of one dollar and upwards. They bear 4 per cent in ierest payable semi-annually or annually, are negotiable, good as collateral security and can be renewed at interest periods. We solicit your banking business be it large or small. The Columbia Valley Bank Wenatehee, F. H. Brand, M. D.

As the questions to be answered are more numerous than ever before it has been requested that every parent should copy this list, and have the answers ready when the enumerator calls. By so doing the work will be greatly assisted: 1. Name of parent or guardian. 2. Names of children. 3. Date of birth of each child — day, month, year. 4. Sex of each-child. 5. Number of weeks each child has attended this school year (since last August). 6. Residence address. In addition to the above, the pa rent will be asked to sign the cen sus sheet. This new requirement is made necessary by a change recently I made in the law. This is to make sure that the census is correct, j It is a noteworthy fact that all mothers remember the date of birth of each of their children —but how many fathers can tell? It might be well to find out. Then again, how many parents know when their chil dren started to school and the ex act number of weeks each child at tended ? (Deduction must be made for absence at any time.) "The enumerator is to include in his report the names of all persons between the ages of 5 and 21 years, who reside in this district. This in cludes some classes that might be overlooked, as— | 1. Married women who are not 21 years of age. 2. Children who are between 5 and 6 and have not yet started at school. 3. Children whose homes are in this district, but who are temporarily away from home attending school, working, etc. 4. Boys and girls whose parents live elsewhere, who have been "given their time," or who are entirely self supporting. Don't forget to give the names of these to the enumerator as they are properly included. Washington No Extra Expense.

State College, Pullman. May 4. (Special—The staff of the State Col lege Experiment station have an niunced a number of experiments that will be carried out during the coming season with relation to farm and orchard pests, one of which will be a careful study of the sulphur lime wash when used as a fungicide. For the purposes of this experiment, the wash will be tried out on apple scab, which is one of the most threatening fungus diseases now now troubling orchardists of the state. "For the purposes of this experi ment we have planned three spray ings," said Professor K. Kent Beat tie, botanist of the college, recently. "One spraying will be given before the leaf buds burst: the next one will be given just before the blossoms open, that is, at the time when the usual first spraying for apple scab loccurs. We shall use several differ lenl brands of sulphur-lime wash, and will spray in the proportions of one gallon of the wash to eleven gallons of water; one gallon to fourteen of water, and one of wash to seventeen of water. "The next spraying will be given just after the blossoms fall, and the i same strength will be used. This i work will be supplemented by com parative experiments with Bordeaux mixture, which will be so planned as to throw some light on the reasons I why Bordeaux mixture scorches fruit, j Different methods of applying the Bordeaux to the trees will be tried. "Spraying with the Bordeaux and Vermorel nozzles will be compared. This part of the spraying experiment is the extension of a series of ex periments carried out last year rela tive to the scorching of fruit by Bor deaux. "Another experiment will be that of making a physiological study of the effect of sulphur-lime wash on the flowers of the apple, the pear, the peach and the cherry. We will do this by spraying the flowers at dif ferent stages of the bud, and when in full blossom, endeavoring to deter mine whether any harm is really done to the fruit by spraying a blooming tree. This will be done in co-operation with Prof. Melander, en tomologist of the station. "The tomato blight has had our station staff puzzled for the past ten (Continued on Page 3.)
