If the average mother of an aver

to borrow from her husband to pay

According to census reports more

The index numbers continue to
reigster a checking of the down
ward movement of prices. July
and August prices, averaged by
commodities, show a firm upward
trend. As prices now stand, this
means a fixed change in the relation
of farm products to most other
goods, for the fall in price of the
latter is checked far short of the
depths reached by the farmer.
Farm products must rise, or other
products continue to fall, or agri
culture must submit definitely to
a less favorable situation relatively
to other industries than it occupied
prior to the war.—Lincoln Journal.
What is gambling? That depends.
If the colored brother shoots craps,
that's gambling. If fellows in a
back room play cards for cigars
thats pleasure for the man who
wins. A half dollar on the side
makes it sport. If a selected few
in a parlor play poker, that is
sociability. If a city exchange
fleeces the innocent that's business.
If the W?ll Street wolves clip the
wool from the lambs that's big busi
ness. Life is a gamble, and the
coffin holds the stakes—Ex.
It is estimated that 2 million tons
of sugar will be cairied over in the
U. S. this year. This amounts to
6 months consumption. The Cuban,

all unusually large. If consumers
du not greatly benefit by still fur

will be because some where along
the line between producer and con

The local lodges would feel utter

of the traternal temple. Mr. Brocke
not only looks after his duties as

they have during the past few years,
it will be only a question of a short
time until the people of this local
ity will have to import practically
all of their fruit. As it is, there
are few saleable apples in any of
the orchards here. Many of the
trees are dying from the lack of
care and scale is killing or damag
ing trees, particularly in orchards
in the Potlatch canyon. This
country can produce splendid fruit
if the trees are given the same care
that they get in other localities
where fruit is the principal crop.
Intensive cultivation, spraying and
pruning are as necessary to grow
good fruit as plowing is to produce
big grain yields.

CULL P00H PRODUCING HENS
Work Should Be Started in Summer
and During Early Fall Months—
Comb Is Indicator.
The liens should he culled out dur
ing the summer and early fall
months, beginning to cull out the poor
producers just as soon as they stop
laying, which is usually in July and
August. When a hen is laying her
comb will he large, full of blood, and
bright red in color. As she stops lay
ing. the comb becomes small and
shrunken, pale or dull in color, and
is usually rather hard. Another good
indication to use in selecting thosi
liens which stop laying early is molt
ing, as the hens that start to molt
early—that Is, in July and August—
are usually the poorest producers.
While a hen which has molted most
of tier feathers is very easy to pick
out by sight u i'hnut examination, the
only way to ascertain accurately
when tile liens begin to molt is to han
dle them. Before the body and wing
feathers are molted in any great num
ber you will find short pin feathers
growing thickly on the back and in
ttie feather tracts running bark from
the breast, indicating that these liens
have started to -molt and probably
have stopped laying If their eomhf
and general appearance indicate non
production. The pelvic hones are alsc
helpful in making this test ns these
two hones tend to close up when th*
hen stops laying. If the spread be
tween these hones measures tw<
lingers or less the probability is that
the lien Is not laying, while If the
spread Is greater, together with othet
