Stevens' sawmill si Badger mountain, Douglas county, was burned to tlie ground oa April 28th. It will be rebuilt. Judge Graves writes from San Diego. Gal., that Mrs. Graves stood tbs Journey verv well and felt folly as well as when she left. A steamer is being built at Ballard for a syndicate of eastern capitalists, who will nas her in the Yakima rirsr, where they intend to go into hydraulic mining oa a Urge scale. Wenatchee Ademnee: Two inches of now fell at the sawmill Monday. The weather clerk may know hit business, but his methods of administration are eccentric, to say the least. The effort to reduce the liquor license at Elleoaborgb from SI,OOO to S6OO was a failure. Thera are now six saloons in the town, bat two or three of them are pre paring to does down when their license expires. The Overland Evergreen, published at Eaomclaw, Wash., has suspended publi cation. The editor says it has never been a paying venture. It ia understood that the plant will be removed to Yakima City. A Kansas artificial rain company offers to sand its men to Kittitas county for $250, on condition that they are to receive 1750 if the experiments are successful, in which event they will sell the county the right lor $5,000. The work of clearing the Colombia of obstructions to navigation at Bock Island rapids has ceased, and the government boats will be bong op at Paaco. The ap propriation was exhausted like dew be fore the morning sun. The steamer City of Ellens burgh has bean newly refitted, and is now navigat ing the upper Columbia river, making two trips a- week from Port Eaton to Bridgeport, a distance of 100 miles. She leaves Port Eaton Mondays and Thurs days, returning Wednesdays and Satur days. One of the neatest congratulatory tele grams received by Mayor-Elect Drum heller, of Spokane, over his recent great victory, was from James Hamilton Lewis, of Seattle, who will doubtless be the dem ocratic nominee for governor. It reads: “My old friend, while 1 send yon my sin cerest congratulations, 1 none the lees coogratolate your people for the honor they have done themselves.” J. W. Wells, of Seattle, offer, to build an Immnue ditch amend the eaat end of Kittitas valley, carrying water sufficient to giro one-half inch to each acre of land under the ditch, and to he commenced by August tat. 1892, and finished by Jane lit, 1898, provided that the settlor, mort gage their lands for ten year, to pay |1 and |1.25 per acre annual water rental, and the pro rata coat of the ditch at the end of the ten years, when, If the condi tions are fulfilled, it will be turned over to them. The proposition was made at a mass meeting, hut the farmer, were alow to sign', the representative of only 6,500 acres signing the agreement. The matter was left io the hands of W. H. Peterson to enlist the farmers. Captain A. B. Wyckoff, commandant of the Paget sound naval station, baa his headquarters on the government vessel Neipsic. stationed at Port Orchard. On July sth the contract for the erection of a dry dock will be awarded, which Captain Wyckoff believes will be the inception of • navy yard. He predicts that whatever Improvement# are made at Port Orchard by the government will redound to the benefit of Paget sound country, not only In the actual money expended for such improvements, hnt in drawing war ves sels to the dock. The captain baa select ed the rite for the dry dock end is anx ious to prosecute work vigorously on its construction. Walla Walla Onion-Journal: The bright, balmy weather for the past few days bee filled the needs of the growing crops. The ground is now thoroughly soaked, and if no more raina falls there will be no trouble experienced from drouth, drain is in excellent condition, and a few wans days is all that Is wanted to cause it to grow and mature rapidly. The odd weather baa done the moot dam age to fruit, hot with no farther injury from thin or any other source an average crop may ha looked fur. Strawberries will net be as abundant as last season, owing to the earlier blossoms having been nipped by the frost; the crop will be about two weeks later than usual. Peaches were not injured by the frost, but ware benumbed by the cold weather Which prevented the sep from flowing, and the bode in only some localities died from wont of nourishment. About half a crop Is expected. Of other fruits no material damage has been done beyond the delaying of the maturing season eev • _____ The chicken raising industry is likely to have a boom in Montana. A citiien of Unite, In that state, who killed a rooster for dinner the other day found several nuggets of fold lo its crop and gissord. He at once staked out a claim on the tbivty-ooq remaining members of bit flock and bagao mining them. The recall of this operation had a cash value of SBB7. The successful miner is now baying op all the chickens be can find and setting them to work at scratching lor their death. •ns iekiuv waul ht umr. TIM rarta all Mag Nleelr-Tkr ItIM Weaifeer I'BTer* Ike Lie* -BcrM Acimic LM. From all sections of Yakima county the report it received that both the old and new yards are doing nicely. Plant ing is still going on, but owing to the greatly increased acreage there is a short age of strong, vigorous roots, and several of the growers have sent orders away. There are frequent reports of lice bOt no damage from them is anticipated. Mr. T. F. Maher says the conditions here are the same as in the Sacramento valley, where Ike can always be found, but that the hot weather prevents them from working or doing any damage. Capt- Dunn scoffs at any fears from Ike. He says we have always had the vermin since hop growing was started, but that the long, dry, hot summers with frequent brasses is a bar to their doing any harm. The unprecedented rains of this spring have favored the vermin, and there la lit tle doubt but a hat they are here, although many growers maintain that it is not the true hop loose. The call baa been issued for a meeting of the Yakima Hop Growers Association in thU citv on Saturday afternoon, sod It is hoped that there will be a general at tendance, as many matters of interest and benefit to the growers will come up. Puyallup Commerce: Hop vines in the Puyallup district are now making their usual good growth, and the usual differ ence of opinion exists in regard to lice, some growers saying they have already seen lots of them, while others say they have hunted in vain for them. All agree, however on the necessity of thorough spraying, and roost growers are exam in ing into the features of the different spray ing machines. The Cherry Valley, N. Y., Gazette of April 28th says: Hops are slowly but steadily increasing in value. At this writing they find ready sale at 32 or 33 cents. The probability ia they will be higher before Jane. The bop exchange continues to get in its work or 40 vents wonld have been paid bafore this time. The New York Commercial Gazette of April 25th quotes prime Washington*, June delivery, at 26>£920c. The Slaughter Sun reports that .grow ers are finding a number of roots dead this spring, and that an observant grower reports that the vines most affected with vermin last year are the ones that died. In some instances vines in one-third of the bills have diad. • • • At Snmner William Hammon exhib ited a young hop vine only eighteen inches in length on which were hundreds of active, vigorous 11. e; and at Slaughter Dave Hart exhibited a large bunch of plum leaves from a plum tree that were completely covered with the vermin. On the west side I. I’incoa A Hon are loaning considerable coin to growers, tak ing a chattel mortgage on the coming crop and the privilege of handling it at one cent per pound. According to E. Meeker’s hop circulars tl>e estimated yield of Oregon last year was 16,00h; Washington 40,000 bales. The exports for the season were 66;0U0 bales—more than twice the amount ex ported the previous year. HOP ACBEAOK REVISED AND CORRKCTKD. acbh scats Moms Adana . I*) Mrs.M.

How Electricity It Applied t* (It Prob- Iwt of the Iltekei. Details •« the Callaary luatlls and the Car-Hester Prlsclpto That Is Applied—The Adapta tions are Limitless. Recently (here was an exhibition of e sc trical cooking at the Crystal Palace, and a representative of the Aiff J/rnU Budget writes of U thus: The first thing thst struck me is the simplicity of the appa ratus employed. Even with a gas cooking stove, which is an immense improvement on the beet of coal ranges, there la always s heavy iron structure to begin with, and this most be supplemented by the usual equipment of saucepans and kettles. But with electrical cooking each saucepan or kettle, or frying pan contains within itself the means of imparting best. And so simple end insignificant in sias is the beating contrivance that an electrical kettle is barely heavier than a gas stove kettle. But the gas stove kettle neces sitates at tbs very least a gas ring; the electrical ketue will boil sway on s polished floor or on an afternoon tea table. What. then, is ths contrivance? Te begin at ths beginning, it is the utilization of the fact that the electric current in pass ing through a thin wire causes that wire to grow hot—provided always that the currant is sufficiently powerful, sod that the wire offers sufficient resistance. This fact has long been familiar to the general public as well as to electri cians. It is the basis of the ordinary electric glow lamp, where a thin wire of carbon ia heated to incandeeceoce. To get beat without light is. however, the object of ilie electrical cook; tor the ex tra energy that is required to produce the lighting rays is, from hie point of view, waste. The first attempt to secure heat in a convenient form, without light, was made with platinum wire*. And in many ways platinum is an ideal metal for the purpose; it offers great resistance to electricity, and it does not oxidise. Yon rosy heat it up to a red glow as often as you like and it will never rust or bum awuv. But platinum is expensive—so expens ive that only American millionaires could afford to use it in their household uteris ils. Other cheaper metals there are in plenty that, from an electrical point of view, do Almost as well as platinum, or perhaps even better; but they corrode when bested in the open air. Tills diffi culty has been gotten over by coating one of these vessels with a special varn ish of cement that protects it from the air, bat yet allows the metal to expand freely when heated by the passage of the electric current. How this device is ap plied can best be realised from the rail road foot warmer. The plate is about eighteen inches long by four brood, and perhaps one-tenth of an inch thick; it has a metal backing for strength, but the important part is the cement face, with the wire just visible uuderneath. The current is conducted to the plate by ordinary insulated copper wires, and there connected by ordinary connecting screws with very fine wires of platinoid, or some other convenient alloy; over these fine wire* is the thin semi-transpar ent cement. When the cnrrent is turned on the resistance in the fine wires causes them to grow up to a temperature more than sufficient to boil water. But the cement expands equally with the w ires, and therefore does not crack, while it completely protects the wires from cor rosion. These adaptations are almost limitless. Instead, for example, of adapting year electrical heater to the bottom of your kettle, yon can carry heat by means of an electrical plunger Into your water Jug, or bath ran, and heat your supply of cold water up to the temperature you desire. The electrics', device ran also be applied to an even. The aides and the back, the top and the bottom of the electrical oven could all be heated independently, so that when the pie showed signs of burning on tfte crust the cook conld abut off the top beat without checking the progress to wards perfection of the fruit beneath. Nor need we limit our ambition to elec trical cooking. Were electricity only cheap enough we might worm our rooms with exactly the same device. On ceil ings, on floors, on walls would be laid or namental plaque* warmed to e gentle heat by the electric current. Chimneys would then be banished, and with them the chimney sweep; while the house maid in the morning would no longer dial orb our sweetest rest by her fierce raking at the coal grate, nor cover books, p ciuree end draperies with coal dost. Instead, she would touch a switch, and instantly walla and ceiling would glow with a genial warmth. •100 BtWßrt 0100.

Indianapolis Sentinel, Dec. 28: The subject of pure food, and especially the adulteration of baking powders'by the use of ammonia and alum, is causing no little discussion. The legislatures of New York, Minne ■ota, Illinois, Georgia, Florida, etc., hare taken op this qoeatioa, and it is attract ing the attention of physicians and boards of health throughout the country. Oar own city board of health ordered an ex amination of all the baking powders to be found in this market; instructed Dr. Lata to make an examination and analysis add report tbe result to the board. BAKINO POWDXB ANALYSES.- City Chemist Dr. Latz transmitted to the department of public health a lengthy communication, in abich be gives the re sult of his analysis of the several brands of baking powders that are on sale in this city. In bis report Dr. Lata says that baking powders designated as being free from deleterious substances may be rec ommended, as their healthfulness cannot be questioned. The report is as follows: The samples of baking powders you have sent to our laboratory for investiga tion as to the purity and .'ealtbfnlneos of tbe various brands I have subjected to a qualitative examination, and now report the following result: Atlantic A Pacific contains ammouia and alum. e Bon Bon contains slum.
