The first experiments In this line v.-re made In New Mexico by a stock, man who has since entered the forest service. In 1901 Dr. C. Hart Merri ll m, chief of the division of biological survey of the department of agricul tural, made a report upon "The Pra irie Dog of the Great Plains," In whifh the damage done by the dogs v. as pointed out, and various methods of poisoning them were suggested. This report of Dr. Merriam's may be said to have blazed the way for prac tical work In prairie dog extermina. t!on. Prairie dog are very obnoxious to ,thn stockmen, for they devour much grass and undermine the surface of the ground with their burrows. Where t'.iey establish themselves the destruc tion of the range Is only a question of time. Rar.ge improvement in national for ests i one of the chief objections of r trusting grazing. For this reason the forest service Is leaving no stone unturned to prevent range deteriora tion Stockmen who had suffered heavily from the prairie dog pest were solicitous to have the work taken up, and gladly offered to co-operate with the service in furnishing men and horses to distribute the poison. To ascertain what success could bb hr.d in riding considerable areas of the west, a selection was made of parts of the Leadvllle and Pike na. tional forests which were badly In fested. The region In these forests upon which the dogs were located ag gregated 300 square miles or more. In order to demonsetrate the effec- COFFEE Why doesn't your gr ecr money back every thing: ?

Ua tiveness of the work an area of some 60 or 75 thousand acres of actual dogtown was selcted for the test. From $0 to 90 per cent of the dogs v.ere killed with the first distribution of. poison. It will be necessary to go over the ground a second time and by "spotting" the occupied holes the re. n.ainlng dogs will easily be killed with a very small amount of the poisoning material. The average cost per acre for the poisoning material was only one and one-half cents, an.i even then It was found that more ma tt rial had been used than was neces sary. The poison Is prepared by coating wheat with a preparation ot strych nine, cyanide of potassium, anise oil, and molasses. When a sufficient quantity Is ready, the poisoned wheat Is carried to the field of operations. There the stockmen supply men and horses, the wheat is given out' to the riders, and distribution begins. Each rider carries the wheat In a tin pail supported by a gunny sack slung across his right shoulder and hanging at his left side. His left hand Is free for the reins. With his right hand he uses a tablespoon to measure out the poison and drop It near the entrance of the holes. A little practice enables the men to drop the wheat while keeping their horses at a sharp trot. By crossing the town, to and fro, like ' a man sowing grain, they can cover a large area In a surprisingly short time. The action of the poison Is almost Instantaneous. Most of the prairie dogs In a town are dead within an hour or two after the bait Is dropped. The work Is considered to have demonstrated the entire feasibility of fighting the prairie dogs In this way. It was found, however, that to be successful the poison must be scat tered In the spring, when the dogs first come out from their winter quarters and before the green grass Is offered to appease their hungry appetite. Next spring the poisoning wlli be undertakn much more extensivly. Stockmen and others who wish to try the dog medicine on their own ac count can obtain the formula for Its preparation and directions for Its use from the forest service.

I lie Mordecal Jones place near Guler, Wash., sold one day last week for $$0,000 to a pioneer resident of Portland, H. McCracken, says an Item from The Dalles. Mr. Jones i a wealthy Welchman who owned sev en hundred acres of valuable tlm ber and orchard land between Trout Lake and Huseru, Washington. He ls'a, great disciple of the chase and many are the bear and deer hides that adorn his fine log mansion. He- had the heads of bear and deer mounted, and he used them to deco rate his walls. Mr. Jones owns five hunters, both horses and dogs with. which he chased the bep.r, the grizzly. At one time here he owned a hundred fox hounds which greeted the visitor arriving at his gates, with loud baying that was ulmost deafening. as a usual tning tno dogs were kept In an enclosure, and here they were fed. It Is said that feeding time for the hounds was quite a'n event, and worth seeing; a hundred dogs enjoying their meal, at one time, Is something not seen every day In America. Mr. Jones and his wife were al ways splendid entertainers at their place known as "Hunter's Hill" and many a wayfarer has enjoyed their English hospitality. Just now Mrs. Jones and sons are In England where the latter are attending school, and Mr. Jones has Just returned from an extended hunting trip to Alaska. ' Last spring a year ago, it was no uncommon sight to see Mr. and Mrs Jones and a party of other hunters out In the Trout Lake section, chas ing cross country after bear, accom panied by their trained hounds. Mrs. Jones Is as enthusiastic a hunter as is her husband, and the sound ,of the horns when the game was brought to lair, was musical, and quite English. The people In this section will miss Mr. Jones when he shall have left for good, as he Is among them consid ered a prince of good fellows. ' Defend Hypnotism. New York, Aug. 26. A plea for the use of hypnotism in the treat ment of nervous ailments was made today at the convention of the Na tional Medical association. To prevent the encroachments of the sturdy lodge pole pino .and to eliminate this conifer weed of the na tional forests so that Its near rela tion, the valuable yellow pine of commerce, may have a chance to mul tiply, Is the purpose of a visit to Ore gon by T. T. Munger, an export In sylvlcs, especially detailed by the for estry department to make an exhauB- tlvo study of the great Deschutes and Fremont timber belts In central Ore' gon. These forests comprise more than 7000 square miles of territory In a strip 120 miles long by 60 miles wide. Now practically overrun by the use less lodge pole, It Is the Intention of the forestry department to replace this timber with yellow pine which will add millions of dollars to the vast resources of the Beaver state. Mr. Munger Is a graduate of tho Yale forestry school. He has had wide experience in the practical study of sylvlcs and was selected by the de partment at Washington for" his knowledge of pine tree culture, to make the Investigation of conditions In Oregon. As he has not as yet made any ex tensive research Into the growing timber In this state Just how the de partment will carry out Its plans with, regards to the progagatlon of the commercial pine. He said: Smim1 Three Months In Forests. "I expect to be gone about three months on my trip Into the Deschutes country and will In that time go over the ground thoroughly. We are as yet unable to say why lodge pole pine should reproduce more rapidly than other species, but It is probably due In large part to forest fires which dry out the ground and change the soil so that the lodge pole variety Is bet ter adapted to the region In which it Is now crowding out other trees. "The government expects to find some way to Improve conditions down there by cutting the trees In a differ ent manner. Of course It will take a long time to bring about the change, say 60 or 100 years, but Uncle Sant Is In the forestry business for all time to come and he has become accustom ed to looking a long way ahead. "In the. timber country east of the Mississippi, both in the Adlrondacks and the mountains of the south, we find that after forest fires hardwood trees, such as birch and others, re produce more rapidly than pine. We have successfully solved the problem ot eliminating the growth of these and supplanting them with commer cial timber and have no doubt that we will be able to solve the lodge pole pine problem In a satisfactory manner also. ' LtMlgp Polo Useful. "This Is the first time In the his tory of the forest service that this particular phase of sylvaculture has been presented and consequently It Is hurd to say Just now what steps we shall take to upbuild tho forests In this section. "In Idaho and other parts of the northwest the lodge pole pine (rows just as thickly as down here In Ore gon, but in those districts the tree Is valuable for lagging and other pur poses, vto the mining Industry. So the department does not worry over the crowding out of other varieties of pine where the lodge pole species is of value to the country." . INCREASED PAY COMES TO UXCLE SAM'S SOLDIERS A kiss, which to the one may be a simple thing, Is to the other all ths world. Bulletins announcing the Increase In pay granted by the last congress to United States soldier ha-ve been received at the government recruit ing station, says a Spokane Item. Advances are made all along the line, the best Increase of course be ing for the men In the higher grades of the service. The Increase at the time of enlistment varies from $2 per month for the ordinary private, who now gets $15 per month, to a much more substantial raise for mas ter electricians and other skilled lines f service drawing from $15- to $75 per month. One of the attractive features of the new schedule of pay Is the grad uated Increase for subsequent enlistment- This la Intended to retain tha old men In the service.

"During tho 10 years I was In the land oflco at Devil's Lake, North Da kota, the vacant lands went down from 600 townships to a few frac tions that, all placed together, would not have more than filled one town ship.
