Butter Must Be Stenciled.
"Idaho has the best pure food law in the United States," said A, McPherson, state pure food com missioner, who was in Lewiston Wednesday. "'Our law is almost an exact counterpart of the bill which Senator Heyburn now has before congress. I have received a letter from the head chemist in the chemistry department at Washing ton, D. C., in which he gives our state credit for having the best pure food law. "The new law as passed by the last legislature, gives the board of pure food commissioners the power to adopt the standard of purity. We are adopting the same stand ards as those of the nation and a bulletin will be issued during April from my office which will give all the standards. Many of these are very severe as compared with our old law, but they give a far better protection to the consumer as well as the dealer. It is a well known fact that Oregon ami Washington have copied our irrigation laws, and that Utah has copied our hor ticultural laws, and now we have a pure food law good enough for any state to copy. "One of the new features of the pure food law is that every person who sells butter must secure a stencil brand from my office. It makes no difference whether it be a large creamery or a farmer's wife who takes five pounds a week to a country store. We can make no discriminations in the law. The stencils will cost very little. The law provides that they shall not cost more than one dollar each and they will not reach that price. "The fruit outlook in southern Idaho was never better. In the pan handle the outlook is very fair, a slight damage having been done by the frost. Unless the unfore seen happens, Idaho's fruit crop this year will net the growers $2, 000 , 000 .

I have found the San Jose scale in one or two places and the growers are prepared to wage war this spring on the pest. "At Juliaetta I have quarantined every vineyard because of the grape phylloxera, which has made its ap pearanse in the root foim. It is peculiar fact that the winged iety which attacks the plant above the ground has not made its pearance. The quarantine will not prevent the sale of the grape crop, but will prevent the sale of any cuttings or plants." a var ap Burdette on Work. Remember, my son, you have to work. Whether you bandle a pick or a pen, wheel-barrow or a set of books, digging ditches or editing paper, ringing an auction bell or writing funny things, you must work. Don't be afraid of killing yourself ny overwork on the sunny side of 30. Men die sometimes but a it's because they quit at 6 p. and don't get home until 2 It's the interval that kills, my son. The work gives you an appetite for your meals; it lends solidity to your slumbers; it gives you a per fect and grateful appreciation of holiday. m. a. m. a There are young men who do not work but lhe wodd j is not proud of them. It does not know their names even; it only speaks of them as "old so and so's boys. great busy world does not know that they are here. So find out just what you want to be and do, and take off your coat and make dust in the world. The busier you are the less harm you will get into, Nobody likes them; the the sweeter will be your sleep, the brighter and happier yourjholidays, and the better satisfied the world will be with you. Pauper, Once Had Millions. Edward W. Mitchell, at one time a leading figure on the Chicago board of trade, organizer of a cor ner in wheat in 1868, and once worth millions, died recently at the county hospital in Chicago, at 70 years old, a pauper. His fall came in 1870, only two years after he had cornered the wheat market and made a fortune. Since then he has lived in the hope that one day he would regain his former fortune. But his failure had so shaken him that he never regained his position, but grew poorer and poorer, until in recent years he depended entirely upon the charity of his friends. Mem bers of the board of trade made up a subscription to help defray the expenses of the funeral. Notice.
