GOT AHEAD OF THE BIRDS Almond Farmer Turned Pilfering Tellowh&mmers Into Nut Harvesters. The stranger In the hotel lobby worS a gray frock coat, gray trousers a gray slouch hat and a gray mustach and chin tuft a la Buffalo Bill, says the Cincinnati Enquirer. "1 am a western almond farmer," he said to the reporter. "1 prow almonds, son. the same as your folks grow pota toes and corn. "Is it a good business? Well. I ! wouldn't be in It if it wasn't. It is a fine "Queer things happen sometimes? Oh. yes. sometimes, I guess. Let me see. BOW. Let me see." Puffins slowly on his cigar, the west •rn almond grower tried to think of cmcthing queer to tell the reporter. Finally he said: "The yellowhammers bothered me laEt harvest time. They came by thou sands to my almond nrcbard. and, carry ins off my nuts In their beaks, they stored them in the hollow limb of an oa.\. "That wouldn't do, you know "I studied a bit. and then I rut off the hollow oik bough, and substituted for It i long wooden funnel, made to look as much lilie a bough as possible. Beneath this funnel I put a basket Then, chuck lin' to myself, I returned to the office. "Well, my scheme buncoed the jr.el- lowhammers. It buncoed them. The ooor birds couldn't tell the funnel from Ibe bough Every day. thinH-* they were laying up a fine store of dul«. they dropped almocd after almond into the funnel. Every night I collected a big Dasketful of nut; that had been harvest ad for me by the birds " IT IS GHASTLY GAMBLING. Bisks Taken by English Insurance Companies on the Live* of Monarch*. "Policies. 11l wager, 1 are already b» ing taken out in London on the life of little Alexis, the new heir to the Kus Eian thrc/ue." said au Insurance agem. receniiy. reports an exchange. "Th<- Lnglisn gamble horribly in life insur ance, and Alexis rausi anneal to thenl as a wonderful risk. They will pay high for him, though. "The insurance rates on all royal HTM are a tribute to the power of th« nihilists and anarchists, for they arp so huge as to be almost prohibitive The rate on the king of England i* enormous, and among monarch* his is the lowest rate of any. That on the Russian czar is the highest. The czar Is a bad risk. Many companies woui-! not insure him on any consideration. "But Lloyds, the great London con cern, would Insure anything or any body—Prof. Lanßley going up in oce cf h:E flying machines, a. Japanese sp> about to enter Arthur, a Russian battleship going into battle. And hence Lloyds is willing to insure the poor little Russian heir, and a pertain class of men, taking advantages of this fact, are procuring policies upon the baby's life. "Gambling on lives is a ghastly form of sport, and I believe that it it practiced nowhere but in England. It ought not be practiced there. The law ought to prohibit it. At Lloydp. how ever, it is always going on. Policies at Lloyds are continually being taken out or persons of eminence all over the world."

The latest accomplishment of | science is the photographing of liTlnj? j disease germs. Given the complicate'] machinery and processes required to | vet the negative films for any set of me-motion pictures, the method of se curing the films for germ life is sim pler than might be supposed. The liv ing ptrnis to be pictured are put on a | lan . <-m slide in blood or water or other suitable medium and projected on a screen, juet as they might be by a physician giving a lecture and show in? 10 the class the actual live germ? ; and their habits Alongside of the lantern is placed the machine for ge!- ' tits the negathe films of the l.fe-nio- I tion pictures, and H is operand—tak- j ing pictures of the projection on ihej screen at the rate of about 30 a sec- j ond —as by the ordinary method. The lantern, as usually operated, magnifies j the ttrni and whatever cisc the fli'lr j contains about 2,000.000 times. The I negative film machine magnifies the image on the screen about three time-) the resulting total magnification be ing 1,000,009. Once the film strip ll obtained in this way it may be use.l i In the ordinary life-motion pictuiv machine again and again. Magnified to tl 3 extent named the germs of dis eases which have been Isolated an I identified are readily observable. They j are seen being born, moving about. proving, giving birth to other gtrms, and dying, Just as they do in real life i The machine may be run fast or slow, j or stopped at any picture, or it may i be set back for a close or more de .ailed study of something which has! already been observed. SARATOGA PLEASES WOMEN Famous New York Resort Give* Tern* porary Freedom to the Fair Sex. "The lady at Saratoga get* more out Df her visit than does the gentleman who take* her there" sajs Charles E. Trevathan. in Everybody's Magazine. "She may do with impunity in Sarato ga those things which she oajf-Ect ap proach even Id thought elsewhere, and it is perhaps because of this temporary freedom that she loves her Saratoga as she loves no other resort. It is the one environment through which the may move along If she like, the one acre of pleasure-making where the escort is not necessary to her pursuit of laughter. She may go through the drives alone in the forenoon, and she may stroll about the rare course in the afternoon alone; she may dine alone and wine alone; she msy sit out the concerts in the evening or watch the mocr.light on the verandas alone, and thfre will scarce be comment upon her actions. She may without fear, fo alone anywhere and everywhere in the town that a man can fro. And this Is a privilege of which she does cot avail herself. She merely get* a keen sort of relish In the Idea that she 'could an she would.' There Is more fun to be had with 'somebody along,' am! the lady of Saratoga is rarely a person alone.' " School of Hairy In «: This important branch of the agri cultural college at Pullman will open on January 10 and conduct an eight weeks' winter course in dairying for | the benefit of those who can not attend I the summer tchool. The opening of the new year will be marked by ibe commencement of two popular courses of instruction, de- $1.00 Per Year ! signed especially for the benefit of the farmers and dairymen of the state.

This school is planned t<' give practical instructions in the manufac ture of butter and cheese and the man agement of creameries. The opportuni- ties for trainibg along these lines are better than erer before. The new building, erected last year, is now equipped for practical ■work and up-to date instruction. Professor Ira P. Whitney, who conducted the course of 1904 so successfully, h»9 again been employed, and will bring to his duties the fruits of further experience and Sy. He is a graduate of the Wis in school of dairying-, which alone fficient guarantee of his prepare as instructor. Aside from the nical training given in the course, students are brought directly in I contact in the classroom with many i of the other members of the faculty and receive the best instruction avail able benring on the great industry of dairying. This school will opea on January 10, and will continue for eight weeks. Ef fort is being made to bring this popular course within the reach of eve-* farmer in the state.
