According to a recent report from Poise a severe winter In Idaho and the inter-mountain country will mean the loss of thousands of dol lars to sheepmen. The sheep are in very poor condition and a severo win ter would in- fatal. lhe Day „ Hansen Seen com pnnj sold a section of fine wheal land in ihe Watervillo district to Leonard Harvey of Oakesdale fo; $22,400 carh. The land is about eight mile easi, of Watervillo, is all under cultivation and is fenced. l.< salt- price was $35 an acre through cut. Hay raisers in the vicinity of Stites. Idaho, have lost heavily dur ing' ihe past, few week, by holding their crop. They now have a bout tino tons of timothy baled and ready for shipment for which tin refused between $1S and $20 per ton in Sep tember, and now the best price they (ill! get in if 12. Fanners in the vicluty of Llnd are hopeful for a record crop of wheat next, season, as he September rains have caused many to seed a larger acreage than they had plan ned, and the wheat has covered the ground, completely choking out he "Jim 11 ill mustard, which many feared would get the start of the wheat, and Injure the crop Th orchardists of the Northwest are plane to operate in the marketing of their product in order to give the largest amount of profit to the raisers. Senator W. 11. Paul hamus, president of the allup & Sumner Fruit Growers' association brought the matter to the attention of 100 apple growers at a confer ence held iii connection with 1 lie ap pie show at Spokane. The rapid development of the fruit industry at, Slarlinek has induced he growers to organize for mutual bene fit, Funds ill he raised for main taining the association and advertis ing the Starbuck country. Plans are on foot to build a large modern cold storage plant at Starbui Aside from the planting of 300 acre of 5 and 1.0-acre orchard at Rlveria, the project, of President E. A. Bryan of W. S. C.'i is it estimated 200 to 350 acres of apple orchard will be set out. in the spring along the Snake river near Starbuck. Tobacco grown In Clark county proves that one more product may be raised In Washington. Edward Permentler, who lives near Fruit val ley ,two miles from Vancouver, has harvested enough tobacco to last him all winter. A few years ago he planted tobacco and the leaves were more than a foot Ide and 30 inches long, and he stalk was live feet high. The tobacco seed is planted in a hot house in January and transplanted in the garden in May, here it, matures in August. Mr. Parmentier expects to plant mure tobacco next season Grain and Milling News. The 30,000 bushel elevator which W. L. Homer and J. L. Monda have erected at Great Falls, Mont., started handling grain on the 15th of this month. The Conley warehouse at Island City, Oregon ,was recently burned with a loss of $22,000. Over 10,000 bushels of wheat wan- consumed In the flames. The Seattle Grain Company has just completed a new warehouse 50x -120 feet at Espanola, Wash., taking the place of the two houses burned about two months ago. Members of tin- Farmers Union of Southeastern Washington have form ed a big pool for the buying of their grain sacks and will call for bids In the near future for about 1,000,000 sacks. On November 15 the Acme flour mills at Portland, Ore., was destroy ed by fire at a loss of approximately $400,000. The loss is covered by insurance and it Is probable that the mill will be rebuilt at once. The Kooskla Milling & Power com pany has started up their mill at Cot tonwood, Idaho, which has a capacity of 200 barrels of flour per day. The dam was washed out last spring by high water and its replacement has just been completed. Tie- Fisher Flouring Mill Co., of Seattle, are building in connection with their new flouring mill storage room for 4 50,000 bushels of grain. There will be 21 concrete tanks with a capacity of 400.000 bushels and the filling elevator will have a capacity of 50,000 bushels.

Storing Seed Potatoes. Seed potatoes in storage have throe very definite require tils. They must In- kept In a place that la cool, well ventilated and dark. Thai the potatoes In- kept cool is mosl Impor tant. The besl temperature is from 33 '" 35 degrees, If the tempera- lire falls below 32 degrees there is danger of freezing, although it. lakes a slightly lower temperature toi freeze potatoes than water, Good ventilation is necessary in order to prevent tin- spread of rot, and it. is well to keep tin- potatoes dark, so that, they will nol he tempted to sprout at, any time. A cool, dark, well ventilated cellar that is fairly dry is the lust place to store seed po tatoes on the ordinary farm. As spring comes on seed potatoes should imf be allowed to send out the long, pale, spindly shoots 1 hal ore bo often .seen. This may be prevented by keeping I lie potatoes cool ale! dark. Some of the .'.l stern grow three or four weeks before planting time, spread their seed potatoes out. in Ibe light at a temperature of 60 to 70 degrees and here allow them to do velop sprouts a half to an Inch long. These are strong, stubby little sprouts, that are not broken off in planting. It la said thai this pro cess ii.ii hastens tin- maturity of the crop and increases the yield, But to allow potatoes to Bend out long, spindling shoots ' hal are easily broken in handling is a bad thing for j any kind of potatoes, seed or market.

Inquiry being made as to how the old lady managed to gel such an even design, Sally was summoned to the dining room and the Question was duly put to her. The emotions of the guests may be imagined when the old lady replied: "Oh, dats easy. I Jea uses my false teeth."—Harper's Magazine. Archbishop Ryan was visiting a small parish In a mining district one day for the purpose of administering confirmation, and asked one nervous little girl what matrimony Is. "It la a state of terrible torment which these who .liter are compelled to undergo for a time to prepare them for a brighter and better world," she said. "No, no," remonstrated her rector; "that Isn't matrimony: that's the definition of purgatory." "Leave her alone," said the arch bishop; "maybe she Is right. What do you and 1 know about it?" An Irishman desired to become naturalized, and after the papers were signed the judge turned to him. •Now. Dennis," he said, "you can vote." "Will this ceremony," Inquired the new citizen, "blip me to do at army botther than Oi have been votln' for th' lasht tin years?"
