University of Idaho Makes Some Inter
esting Experiments.
Professor 1,. 1'. Henderson has com
pleted some experiments he has been
making this year to determine the best
treatment for smut in wheat and oats.
Formalin, copper sulphate and hot
water treatments were all tried with
pood results. This spring he planted
some wheat obtained from warehouses
end which was badly smutted. This
wheat at the present time shows 55
per cent smut. Wheat from the same
sacks was planted after being subject
ed to treatment. The formalin treat
ment pave 100 per cent purity, there
being no smut at present. The copper
sulphate treatmen* showed only ! to i
per cent smut.
Oats were also tried for the same
defect and without treatment pave 7
per cent smut and after belnp treat
ed pave no noticeable trace of smut.
These experiments are to be pre
pared In bulletin form and distribu

Is Made Registrar of the University of
Idaho—Optimist to Be Sold.
Moscow, Idaho, Aug. 12.—Francis
Jenkins, of this place, has been ap
pointed registrar of the university to
succees W. G. Harrison, who recently
resigned. Several years ago the board
of regents Inaugurated a policy of con
centrating and centering all the bus
iness part of the university executive
in this office, and Mr. Jenkins purposes
to carry this policy out on a larger
scale this year than ever before.
Mr. Jenkins is one of the old pio
neers, having come to the state in the
year 1884. and lfns since that time
held many offices of both public and
private trust. In ISSj-O he was treas
urer for Shoshone county and from
1880 to 1893 he was superintendent of
the Bunker Hill mines: from 1893 to
1899 manager of the Virtue Consolidat
ed mines. In 1902 he served as a rep
resentative of Shoshone county in the
legislature and was the leader of his
j party during the session. Last fall
I at the republican state convention he
j was a candidate for governor, but was
1 defeated by Governor Gooding.
! Judge K. C. Steel made an order
j yesterday vacating the temporary ln
! junction heretofore granted in the case :
wherein the Optimist Publishing com- j
! pnny was plaintiff and A. L. Morgan. I
J. R. Greer and TT. K. Greer were de- j
fendants. The property in litigation in :
this case was a printing plant at Oro- !
fino. This plant, which belongs to the
Optimist Publishing company, origi- j
ntllly belonged to Greer Brothers, who j
sold It to the company and took a
mortgage for the purchase price, which ;
fell due April 23. 190.7. Morgan was*
the secretary for the Optimist Publish- ;
Ing company, and during the year end- !
lug June, 1904. was the editor and
manager of the paper. In the latter
part of July last, the note and mort
gage being overdue, Morgan, who is
an attorney, commenced an action to
foreclose on behalf of Greer Brothers
before the constable at Orofino. The
Optimist Publishing company enjoined
the sale of the property under fore
closure and alleged a conspiracy to de
fraud them by Greer Brothers. The
injunction was dissolved because of
the Insufficiency of the complaint upon
which It was based, and it Is under
stood that the plant 1 = to be sold

The temperature of the milk when
separated ought to be uniform. If
there Is a variation of Jo or more de
grees when the milk Is run through
the separator at different times the
richness of the cream will vary with
the temperature, says American Cul
tivator. In some eases, owing to some
delay, the separator may not be started
so soon after milking as In others. The
milk then cools off below the proper
separating temperature, and unless due
allowance is made for this loss of fut
will occur.
The speed at which the separator is
turned has considerable influence on
the thoroughness of separation and
upon the texture of the cream. If at
any time the work is hurried and more
milk is run through the machine In a
given time than is usual, the «inullty of
the cream will he changed. The
amount of skim milk or water run
through the machine when the separa
tor Is about finished will Influence the
quality of the cream, depending upon
whether the machine is flushed out
with a little or u largo iiuantity of
water or milk. After a person becomes
aware of the effect of each of these
things upon the texture of the cream
lie can. if he likes, run the separator
each time so that his cream will be
fairly uniform. Sometimes the separa
tor is started us soon ns milking is
commenced. This is all right if mat
ters are so arranged that the machine
Is running at full capacity all the time,
but v hen tiie supply runs out and the
machine lias to he stopped or to run
empty until a further lot of milk is
brought, then we get a cream that Is
not uniform in composition.
The chief points in running a sepa
rator so as to obtain uniform results
are to watch the speed at which the
machine is run. the temperature of the
milk and the amount of milk skimmed
per hour.
