Rye as a Hay Crop.
r i he more oiu- ranchmen grow rye ior bay, the more i4 is demonstrated "hat it is the one crop that yields heaviest and is proof against the ajt faeke of the squirrels. Henry lloflf had never had Miuoh 4auh in rye but last year he put in -seven acres as an experiment.- "fine year on June 1st he out 19 big loads 1: om tire piece. On July 5th he cut a load to t he acre more from part of the same piece, leaving the rest for seed, and at the present time he says «he could out another load to the acre, from the. part that Ita« alret*dy been out tv,'ice. The yield this year has therefore run at least three tons *>»' hay to the acre. The hay, when cut at the right time, -makes one of the best to feed that is grown in Hear Lake or anywhere else. Stock eat it in preference to timothy or lycern. It has all the good point-s of tne former grass and is a -better hood for horses to work on than the latter hay. Mr. Hoff was s© well pleased with his first trial that he put in 20 acres this year and expects to put in more next season Mr. Iloff says it will stand all hinds of dry weather, and frost does not injure it. The last cut ting is as good for feed as the» first, and he thinks it is the coming hay of the valley. Judging by what we know of it rye is destined to he j xt big factor in Bear Lake's future ! as a stock growing and feeding see To the Editor of the Herald ? In your issue of the 0th you give an account of an interview with a prominent p olitician of Idaho, who : assumes to give out what he, alleges to be an agreement to the effect that three of the democratic norni namely, James Graham of C harles H. Harvey of pf Bear lion. Mr. Barrett's Position. Dees, Kootenai, Blaine and. J. -S. Barrett withdraw to make Lade, are • daces for populists, and that this agreement -will be confirmed lit Chi to eago. diie writer is not prepared to si y now -prominent the politician is or how close he is to our democratic leader, William Jennings Brtan, his name is not mentioned. since but the gentleman assumes to much when he undertakes to speak for Lake or its nominee, .and in Bear this connection 1 have reason to dmifet the authority for any part of the statement. As to myself, 1 have not authoriz ed the -statement have not thought from Ike ticket., of withdrawing have no intentions of do-ii.-^r so n o w, and besides, my county would not ask it of me. We are in sympathy ''with our populist friends andwanf their help to elect W. J.

We have made a thorough canvass of the situation all over the state and are fully persuaded that there is ne occasiod for the auditor (pull ing off and incline to the opinion that southeastern Idaho, whidh .rolls up the vote, will insist on the ticket remaining intact, so far as the nudi fcor is concerned, believing it suits all three parties. We were willing to give them tl*e auditor, but not now. Yours truly, J. S. Barrett, Nominee for Auditor. The Deal is Arranged. Iv I. Perky, Chairman of tlie democratic state central.committee, passed through town Wednesday en route home from Chicago. He said the basis of agreement be tween the democrats and populists had been agreed upon. It wus for the democrats to withdraw their nominee for congressman, auditor, mining inspector and J. W. Raid for presidential elector. The popu list were to submit their nominees for these positions, except elector. !' nît;ni ' ■ On the other iiund, if a consoli dation is affected, Thos. L. Glenn will poll more votes than Graham could, for he would bring all the .populist strength to the ticket and all the democratic votes, too. He is the least objectionable to tin* democrats of any populist on their ticket, while his own party will sup-1 port him to a man. Tlx: votes that ! Mr. Glenn would bring to the tick et for himself would, in a large measure, be cast for all nominees on the joint ticket, thus insuring its election. We believe the consolidation will j as to Mr. Reid be withdrawn, which R ought to be. Those who come j off the ticket will lose nothing it be effected, especially if the-demand | may be safely assumed. t -y ^ ^ y G H J| ^ Ay A 5 . » p 4 ff % % % % Spring Arrival » w s ite ..
