The posters are written by Professor Severance and embody the essential principles to be followed in growing these crops as follows: GROW CORN Washington is well adapted to corn. High 'ands, low lands, non irrigated lands, irrigated lands will grow corn if proper seed, proper soils,proper cultivation and properly selected locations are used. Avoid frosty spots. 1. Secure acclimated seed. 2. Select warm, rich, well drained soil. 3. Where rainfall exceeds eighteen inches, plow deep in fall and harrow in early spring. 4. When rainfall is less than eighteen inches, summerfallow as for wheat. 5. Cultivate shallow frequently in spring to conserve moisture, kill weeds, prepare good seed bed, de velop available plant food. Note —Moisture cannot be con served after it has escaped. A good seed bed cannot be prepared from dry, cloddy ground. 1. Plant early, but so as to es cape late spring frosts. The date will vary from early April to the middle of May. 2. Plant in hills 3£ to 4 feet apart each way, 3 to 5 kernels per hill, or same amount of seed in drills. Cul tivate with harrow until corn is 3 or 4 inches high. Always catch weeds when small. 4. Keep soil clean and surface loose throughout summer. Level, shaliow cultivation is best. Do not cut corn until it is fully glazed (unless whether for silage or for grain. Select next year's seed from stand ing corn. The agricultural college wishes to co-operate with the farmers in test ing this crop. It has matured suc cessfully on the college farm for the past ten years. GROW FIELD PEAS Field peas are one of the best crops to grow where adapted. The crop makes rich hay or soiling food; makes rich grain, especially for hog feed, and enriches the soil. Peas do best in a cool climate with considerable moisture. At home all over western Washington ; do well in eastern Washington where rainfall exceeds eighteen to twenty inches, except in wet draws or on clay points. 1. Plow deep in the fall, if possi ble, leaving the ground rough; or, if it is impossible to fall plow, plow as soon as the soil if fit to work in the spring, medium depth, harrowing at once. 2. Work up deep mellow seed-bed as early as the ground is fit to work. 3. Seed as early as seed bed can be prepared, using grain drill to set seed deep —four or five inches. 4. Seed two bushels of peas per acre, if seeded alone. Seed four to six pecks of peas and one busbel of oats if mixture is desired for feed. Pea vines are less likely to lodge and be damaged for feed when seeded with oats. Seed the oats about one week after seeding the peas, setting the drill to seed the usual depth for oats. When seeded on same date, oats are apt to hold down the peas. 5. Make very rich hay if cut when oats are going into the "dough" stage and the first peas are full grown. Cure like clover hay. 6. May be fed off profitably by hogs, turning in when first peas are full grown, confining the hogs to a small patch at a time, to avoid waste. 7. If cut for seed, the beat results are u3ually secured by cutting when thefirst pods are beginning to shell. 7. If cut earlier, too large an ad dition will usually be quite green. 8. Yields on the state farm have ranged from two to four tons, cured hay per acre; $25 to $30 in pork, or, 20 to 40 bushels per acre, usual ly, if threshed. The State Experiment Station, Pullman, Washington, desires to co operate with a certain number of reliable farmers in testing this crop. Write for particulars and for bulle tins on peas. THE KENNEW3CK CJUMER. KENNEWICK.WASH 1 CUT OUT THE MUD SLINGING I The followers and opponents of the fruit marketing plans in use in the Pacific Northwest as represented by the Northwestern Fruit Exchange and the North Pacific Distributors continue agitating the marketing question, and a great deal of not only argument but plain mud sling ing is still being indulged in. There is no particular value here, in our opinion, in going into the merits or demerits of the various argument which at present seem to be ex tremely voluminous in the Pacific Northwestern publications in some sections. California Fruit Grower is of the opinion, as it always has been, that the more or less co ordinate operation of several differ ent marketing plans and agencies and firms is to the advantage of all concerned, and it is better that there be several than that all hands unite in one so far as the general community is concerned. We do not, however, see that there is any thing gained by a continual news paper agitation of slander and villi fication, and are of the opinion that more harm than good is done there by. - The Pacific Northwest, how ever, is comparatively new in the fruit shipping game and must go through this phase of it, which Cal ifornia did some years ago and sur vived. —From an editorial in the California Fruit Grower. HOMES WANTED The Washington Children's home Society has undertaken the great task of finding good family homes for all of the state's wholly depend ent children. It has placed more than 500 of such children in a single year. One of its fundamental prin ciples is to avoid the separation of brothers and sisters, if possible. As many as six children have been placed in one home. Recently two brothers and one sister went into one home, and a brother and sister together have been sent to a home near Pullman, and two sisters to a home near St. John. At the Spokane Receiving Home the society now has several sets of brothers and sisters needing homes. Is there any better exemplification of Christian charity or service to humanity than giving the shelter of your home and the personal in fluence of your life to these home less waifs? Rev. M. A. Covington, superin tendent of the Spokane district, with offices at 526 Hutton Block, would be glad to receive applications from homes willing to take such children.

COSTS BUT LITTLE TO BUILD C«n Be Built Without Skilled Net Recommended In Humid Sec tions Where Water Comet Near to Surface. Pit silos are not advocated in humid sections. Where the ground is firm and dry, pit silos will serve the pur pose as well as more expensive struc tures. They are durable, and the cost Is small, and they can be built with out much outside assistance. in constructing pit silos, the com monly accepted rule of a depth equal to twice the diameter is a good one to follow. If the ello is too shallow, there Is too large a surface exposed and the pressure is not sufficient to pack the silage close enough for the best re sults. It is not advisable to dig the silo too deep because of the difficulty of getting the 6ilage out. In case a large quantity of feed is required, it is better to dig two small silos. Level the ground off before starting to dig, as this makes it easier to keep the walls perpendicular. A plumb line or straight edge should be used fre- Cheap Hoist for Silo. quently to be sure the walls are straight A curb should be built ex* tending above the ground high enough to keep out the water and deep enough to get below the frost line. Advantages of Pit Silo. 1. Small cost of construction. 2. Adaptabgity to the siae of the herd. It costs no more to make in proportion for six head than for 600 3. Can be made anywhere where the water is more than 20 feet below th« surface of the ground, and the walls of a common dug well will stand with out bricking up. 4. Anyone can make it who can dig a cistern. 5. Small cost of machinery needed to fill it. 6. It will not blow over nor rot down. 7. It keeps the ensilage perfectly. No freezing. The temperature is the same winter and summer. Essentials of a Good Pit 8110. There points that must be kept la mind wheh constructing a pit silo: 1. The walls should be plastered from thrfe-fourths to one inch thick. 2. The walls should be washed with a cement coat to make them air and water tight. 8. The walls should be perpendicu- Derrick for Taking Out Silage. lar and smooth, so that the silage will settle evenly. 4. A covering must be provided that will keep out dirt. 5. If walls become drf before plas tering they should be sprinkled lightly. This helps the plaster to stick, and keeps it from drying out too rapidly. WASHINGTON BTATE QRANGE C. B. Kegley, Its Master, Extends Ef> fective Support in Every Way Possible. Daring the recent campaign for al falfa on every farm in the Pactllo northwest, the awakening for a better system of farming was very marked. I have traveled over much of the ter ritory since and find the prevailing sentiment very favorable Indeed. The State Grange of Washington especial ly appreciates the educational feature of the movement and extends effective Bupport to the Holden Improvement committee from every possible angle.

After wandering for three years through the wildest parts of central China in search of his wife and child, j Dr. George Hadden, a missionary from Ireland, tells the story of his adven- j tares. The wife and baby were found j in Hongkong. In his hunt he covered 10,000 miles, traversed Hunan province to the bor der of Tibet, was pelted with clods by 2.000 semibarbarovig Chinese a$ Kyel yangchow and had many tnrflling es capes from death. The Haddgns were stationed at the mission of Yungchowfu, where Dr. Hadden was a missionary for seven years. They were separated in March, 1910, by the Shangsha riots on the Yang river, a tributary to the Yangtze river. Mrs. Hadden was carried to Hanghow, where her child was born on St Patrick's day. Dr. Hadden was carried up the river, losing knowledge of his wife's whereabouts. He wrote many letters, none of which brought him news of his wife, and, having no other method of travel, he walked from place to place through the-great interior of the country. When making his way across the plowed fields of Kueiyangchow the half civilized natives regarded him as a devil in flesh and blood and followed him 2,000 strong. He felt to run would be to invite destruction, so he walked calmly before the excited horde, but he admitted he walked "rather fast" After three years of travel he finally got back to his old station in Yung chowfu and there learned that his wife was in Hongkong, where he join ed her, and for the first time saw his boy, who had been named Patrick by Mrs. Hadden because he was born March 17. They went to Canton and are now going to their home in Ire land on leave of absence. FOR WHAT IS SCHOOL USED? Federal Bureau to Study the Social Center Movement. The federal bureau of education Is undertaking, with the aid of the Rus sell Sage foundation, a most extensive investigation into the wider use of schools, especially the social center idea as it has been developed in Kan sas City. Commissioner Claxton, head of the bureau, has sent out more than 1,300 letters to school superintendents in towns or cities of more than 4,000 pop ulation asking for a complete record of all after school uses for the build ings during the months of February, March and April. These blanks when filled out will be returned to the bu reau of education for use in compiling the most complete report yet made on the subject of the use of school build ings. The department of education is a strong advocate of the use of the schools as social centers and for public meetings and lectures. It hopes by gathering the different plans followed throughout the nation in making the school buildings more useful each city can get new Ideas from the reports that will be issued. A BEGGAR'S HUMP OF GOLD. Man Who Ate From Ash Cans Had $34,000. William Kabler, aged seventy, has been a hunchback beggar in San Fran cisco for twenty years, eating the food he found in ash cans and sleeping wherever he could find shelter. A" pa trolman arrested the old man and took him to the lockup so he might have a comfortable bed. In searching Kabfer it was found that his "hump" was uncommonly hard, and Investigation revealed that it was not a deformity, but a tin box packed with gold coins and paper mon ey. Various false pockets in Kahler's clothes were emptied of additional money. When all was counted the to tal was found to be $11,000. Kahler's "hump" also contained three bank books that showed deposits amounting to $23,000. He was held on a charge of vagrancy.

The central part of the farm, com prising about sixty a< o es, will contain the buildings, of whi *h over seventy- 1 five are projected. The relation of out . structure to another has been carefully ; studied. Tbe grounds of this central group center about a big octagon, which has a band stand in the center. The bif> gest structure will be the administra tion building, facing the entrance, but * is on the opposite side of the octagon. Besides this, the educational frroiipijE#B» - consist of the agriculture,< agrop , omy, the science and the domestic "C#- ence buildings, the gym nasi f greenhouse, the library and the stent;g Just back of these buildings will be i the residences of the director and tiM professors. In the rear of the '( tional group will be the farm consisting of machinery, farm ics, poultry and stock judging build- • Ings, horse barn, cow barn, storage" : barn and power house. Tbe cow barns will contain forty cows, which will not only produce milk and butter for the school, but will b» used for breeding. The horse barn will contain from ten to fifteen horses. Each boy will learn to drive, feed, clean and care for horses, and the lat» = ter will be used for judging. In the - poultry building, which has big yards behind it will be studied all the phases of poultry raising. To the left of the educational group will be the boys' dormitories and their refectory. There will be ten dormi tories, each accommodating from fifty to seventy boys. Near by will be a small hospital with a nurse in charge, who will also-teach nursing to the girls. On the right of the educational g.mup will be thirty-five or forty girls' cot tages, costing about $4,000 apiece. They will contain eight rooms, nd there will be six or eight girls in each house. Daily Mark For Housekeeping. The girls will get their first training in the domestic science building, but much of it in their third and fourth years will be in the cottages. They will be marked each day on the way they keep house. The store will be located near their quarters, and there they will get their training In buying. Then they will have to prepare their food. After a little time the senior girl in each house will be responsible for it, and during the course each girl will have had one year's experience in actual charge of a house. For each cottage there will be flow er and vegetable gardens, and the girls will be expected to take care of these. Each house will be different from the rest, and the whole group will be a sort of restricted village, the houses beinsr mostly of a bungalow type. The eventual capacity of the school will be 1.000 students. Sessions will take place during the twelve months of the year. Profits In Cauliflowers. Efficiency methods are helping the farming sections of Long Island, to judge by the work of the Long Island Cauliflower Growers' association. The association helped farmers to sell $*>00,000 worth of cauliflowers last year, and upon a capital of only $6,000 has built up in two years a $'25,000 surplus. Probably it will pay an extra 15 per cent dividend this year. The officers charged $65 for their services during the year.
