Plummcr of Ta coma, representing an unidentified hydro-electric power company, with headquarters in that city, purchased the unexpired lease on a fractional section of school land at Miles last week of Ed. Ryall for a considera tion of $1000. This unknown power company has purchased the Crystal lake power site at the narrows at old Fort Spokane and now are taking over overflow lands on the south side of the Spokane river from Miles to River Homes. This fractional section of school land consists of about two hundred acres and has over a half mile of river front of overflow besides a large body of sloping bench lands suitable for the location of construction camps, well watered from several large springs, and will give ample space for yard age should a railroad be constructed from Spokane following the Spokane river valley, which is generally thought to be the company's unti mate plan. E. D. Baker, government engineer, who had charge of the fed eral appropriation for clearing and reducing the Spokane rapids on the Columbia river above the mouth of the Spokane river about ten years ago, was here last week in charge of a party of engineers, two of whom represented the Washington Water Power company. They visited the narrows power site and also the Washington Water Power's holdings on the Spokane river at the termina tion of state road 22, now building from Davenport into the Spokane valley. It is thought that their trip was for preliminary survey for con structing a power line down the riv er valley from Little falls for op erating machinery for the early con struction of these two proposed pow er dams in the lower Spokane valley.

Reasonably Rich Soil It Eeeential, . Finely Raked and Leveled Off t» Avoid Water Collecting in Little Pooli. (Prepared by the United stale. Department of Agriculture.) As a crop lo utilize garden space nfter em-ly vegetables have been har vested, nothing Is better than the turnip. Turnips should be planted in most parts of the country about .Inly 25, but in the extreme South as lute us the last of August and can be left in the ground until after several light frosts or all winter in the South. They are useful as a table vegetable and to, a limited extent will supply the place of potatoes. It is the general opinion of specialists of the United States De partment of Agriculture that the Amer ican public could consume many more turnips than it does. For field sowing, turnips are usually broadcast. The particular require ment is v reasonably rich soil finely raked and leveled off to avoid water collecting in pools. The seed should be sowed sparingly. One homely rule Is to take the qunntity which aeems sufficient and divide It in half. After the seeds have been scattered on the surface of the ground, they should be well raked in. This may be done by dragging a piece of brush over the ground. The surface should be well smoothed. It Is a good plan to sow turnips .lust' after a rain, giving them opportunity to sprout before a crust forms. After sowing they will need little attention until harvest. SERUM DOES NOT ELIMINATE Clean-Up of Hog Cholera Cannot Bo Expected Through Use of Thie Modern Treatment. Some persons think that the use of hog cholera serum has become »i> general flint we are far on the way toward the elimination of the disease, but, according to the United States Department of Agriculture, a clean-up of cholera can not be expected through the use of this method. Besides, only a small percentage of the bogs In the country are treated each year and there Is also almost a complete turn over of the swine population each year. Every 12 months we start with a new lot of pigs and the fight against disease must start at the beginning again. About 500,000,000 cubic centimeters of serum are used every year, which means that, counting 50 cubic centi meters for each hog, only about 10, --000,000 hogs are treated. In recent years there have been around 70,000, --000 hogs In the country on January 1, according to federal crop estimators, which means many more hogs In the spring and summer. If all these hogs were treated cholera would not be eliminated.' It would simply be made Impotent to kill many hogs for one season mvi would begin to kill again the next season If serum were not used. Serum treatment, like Insur ance, ran not be allowed to lapse.
