Nov. 30.— So long as the defendant In a divorce pro ceeding In Oregon allows the MM to go by default, there Is no limit to the time which either the plaintiff or defendant to such action is depriv ed of the privilege of Joining in wed lock with any person his or her heart desires, according to a decision of Justice Henry J. Beam of the Oregon supreme court, which has Just been rendered. Hitherto it has been the accepted law that parties to a divorce proceed ing cannot re-wed within six months after tho decree has been made but it. appears from the decision of Jus tice Bean that this is a misconstruc tion. According to Justice Bean it is a well accepted principle of law. that where there is no contest (that is where the issue goes by default) there can be no appeal. The law reads that re-marriage' is barred dur ing the period during which an ap peal may be taken from the decree of the trial court, which is six months. There being no possibility FUMIGATING NURSERY STOCK. A wooden box such as a dry goods box lined with building paper makes a convenient receptacle for fumigating the plants. Calculate the space inside the box in cubic feet and allow 1 oz. of potassium cyanide for each 100 cubic feet. Place the stock loosely In the box and do not All too full. On top of the plants put an old tin can, or earthenware crock, containing I._ on, of sulphuric acid and 2 _ ozs. water. Wrap the weighed cyanide in soft paper and when everything is in readiness drop it into the diluted acid, closing the lid immediately. Fumigate from 30 to 40 minutes, after which raise the lid and air out the contents. The gas generated is extremely poisonous and under no circumstances should be breathed. It Is necessary to use pure cyanide. Lump cyanide often contains as low as 40 per cent actual cyanide, while the pure cyanide contains about 9* per cent. If the pure cyanide is not obtainable make allowance for the weaker material. Cyanide and sulphuric acid can be purchased through any druggist. The strength of the cyanide is usually printed on the container. For grafts and scions it ls well to use less cyanide, say, two-thirds of an ounce to the 100 cubic feet. Fumigation should be done before buds open. Do not try to fumigate | evergreens. m**.,*m*.^K—nmum*mm»mmmmmmm M -m.—,mmmm,-' for appeal In a default case, the par ties to the divorce .which Is allowed ' - to • go; by default/may therefore marry the Instant the decree lof tha 1 trial court ts docketed; Thai our western governors are men Of spirit as well as loyalty to the West Is demonstrated by the tour now being made through the east by the majority of these governors.
