$30,900,600 is the statement made to

versity and its cash value will be
greatly increased.
Dean Miller and the university fac
ulty and regents are interested in the
proposed timber bill which failed to
pass the senate Saturday. This bill
was intended to provide a state for
ester to look after the vast timber
wealth of the state, estimated at
than 130,000,000,000 feet, ..
to use Dean Miller's statement "Z_
lying out in the cold, unprotected and
ought to be looked after." The uni
versity, with $30,000,000 worth of
timber, is probably the largest holder
of timber lands in Idaho, with the ex

the forests of the state.
Dean Miller returned last night
from Boise whither he had been called
for consultation with the state land
commissioners regarding the cutting
of timber about Big Payette Lake.
After the timber had been advertised
for sale a strong protest was made by
citizens interested in the lake as a
summer resort against cutting the
timber on the lake shores.
Miller was called into the matter to
determine what, if any trees could be
cut on the lake border without
ring the scenic beauty of the lake.
He found that an important cutting
of timber could be made without de
facing the landscape and on his rec
cially settled.
Dean Miller reports an unusually
heavy snow fall in the mountains in
south and central Idaho which means
a splendid water supply this season

Washington.—Great swarms of the
17-year locust will infest the United
States in late May and early June
this year, which is expected by sci
entists to be one of the worst "lo
cust years" on record. Experts of
the Department of Agriculture, how
ever, see nothing alarming in the
Once regarded superstitiously as a
harbinger of disaster, the periodical
cicada, popularly known as the 17
year locusta because it comes at long
intervals, is seen now to be no more
than an ordinary non-poisonous insect
pest, which can do little damage if
proper precautions are taken. The
chief injury inflicted by the insect
consists almost wholly in chiseling
grooves in the branches of trees for
depositing eggs. Young fruit trees
sometimes are killed, but the dam
age generally seems greater than it
actually is, according to the entomol
ogists, and popular alarm is out of
proportion to the real danger.
Suggested precautionary measures
Defer putting out young fruit trees
until next year; postpone budding op
erations; do no pruning this spring.
When the insects begin coming out,
hand pick them from young trees or
spray them with pyrethrum powder,
kerosene emulsions, or a solution of
carbolic acid or acetic acid.
Later, when the insects are ready
to begin laying, spray young fruit
trees with whitewash.
The Department of Agriculture has
kept close check for many years of
all the broods of locusts and can fore
cast accurately when and where the
pests will appear. Large regions will
be affected this year where one brood
appeared 17 years ago and in other
regions which suffered 13 years ago,
the states including Alabama, Dis
trict of Columbia, Delaware, Georgia,
Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky,
Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan,
New Jersey, New York, North Caro
lina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Car
olina, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia,
West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
Belief that the 1919 brood will be
exceptionally large is based on the
fact that the 17-year brood coming
out this year is brood 10, perhaps the
largest of the 17-year brood, and that
18 of the 13-year family comes out at
the same time. The year 1868 was
the greatest year in history, when
brood 19, the largest of the 13-year
family, appeared in conjunction with
brood 10 of the 17-year family.
There will be three regions of great
set occurrence of brood 10, one cov
ering New Jersey, Maryland and east
ern Pennsylvania; another covering
all of Indiana, the greater part of Ohio
and southern Michigan; and a third
covering westaekn; North Carolina,
eastern Tennesse and northern Geor
gia. While brood 10 will affect 20
states, brood 18 will appear in only
five states—Alabama, Georgia, North
Carolina, South Carolina and Ten
nessee,. and only limited areas in those
C. L. Marlatt, chairman of the Fed
eral Horticultural Board, who has
perfected the information on the ci
cada, calls the insect the most inter
esting in the world, because of the
spectacular swarms in which it ap
pears, its queer recurrence at long in
tervals and the portentous signifi
cance frequently attached to it. Ev
ery locust year has been a year of
fear and dread, even in civilized times.
Some people have fancied that they
could detect in the cry of the in
sect a resemblance to the name of the
Egyptian monarch*-, Pharaoh, who
persecuted the Israelites. Supersti
tion attached also to the shape of the
bars on the dicada's wings
seemed to form the letter "w'
interpreted as a forecast of war.
"Since this outbreak will come just
at the conclusion of the greatest war,".
Mr. Marlatt said, "and when even
imagination of the rural prophet
could hardly conjure up the liklihood
of another one, some new explanation
will apparently have to be found."'
American Beet Sugar Co. made
918,000 bags of sugar during last
campaign. This compares with
086,544 bags for 1917-1918. It is be
lieved that at least 50 per cent more
ai reage will be planted to beets the
coming season.
This little news item relative to one
of the western beet sugar companies
is significant of a prosperous season
for thousands of farmers in western
states. Increased beet acreage is re
ported generally at a record price.
In this year of readjustment and
uncertainties of price and market
conditions, the farmers will realize
more than ever the value of an in
dustry in their midst which makes
possible a guaranteed price crop and
which also employs large numbers
of persons after the beet harvest is
over.—The Manufacturer.

Forgot What He Needed.
From the Republican, Mt. Gilliad,
Ohio: The editor had an interesting
experience some time ago, when a
young gentleman came to this office
and asked Tor a copy of the Morrow
County Republican. He scrutinized
it carefully when a copy was handed
him, and then said: "Now I know!"
"What is it you are looking for," we
inquired. "My wife sent me after a
bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy, and I forgot the name I went
to several stores and the clerks named
over everything in the line on the
shelf except 'Chamberlain's.' I'll try
again, and I'll never go home without
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy." The
Republican would suggest to the
proprietors of stores-, that they post
their clerks, and never let them sub
stitute. Customers lose faith in stores
where substituting is permitted, to
say nothing of the injustice to makers
of good goods and the disappointment
of customers. Mch.
It was a worldwide poker game,
Bill Hohenzollern, all aflame,
Was raking in the chips like mad;
He was, in truth, a happy lad.
As fast as one could wink a wink,
He rendered Belgium on the blink.
Bill won his hat and coat and shoes
And several hundred I. O. U.'s.
He hooked old Russia in the pot
And dealt three aces from the bot
Tom of the deck and said: "You lose,
hand me all your clothes and shoes
mortgage on your ancient home,
And you may go outside and roam,
And show the world the fearful lot

Bill Hohenzollern dealt once more
And won a lot of France's gore,

To show 'em just what he could do.
His chips were piling mountain high
And Bill looked on with eagle eye
(Or as a vulture one might say,

He held the bulgars by the neck;
Roumania was a total wreck;
He owned the Finns, he owned the
He almost owned the whole darned
When Uncle Sam came breezing in
And dumped a barrel full of tin
Upon the table, just like that,
And calmly he took off his hat,
And with his accents soft and bland
He said:
So deal 'em out and deal 'em square,
Or there'll be music in the air."
The game went on. Bill lost his smile.
While gazing on his dwindling pile,
And as he anted now and then
He saw his stack of iron men
Grow smaller as the time went by.
He lost his fierce and eagle eye
And gazed upon the clock and said:
"It's almost time to go to bed.
Let's play another hand and quit.
And Uncle Sam said: "Aber nit.
You've got old Belgium's bunch of
You've made Kid Russia hit the trail
Without his shoes or overcoat,
You've even trimmed him for his goat
You almost made a bum of France
And beat him out of coat and pants,
And were it not for England's fleet,
John Bull would walk with naked feet

And won the pots almost at will.
But now you'll have tp deal 'em right
And I am here to play all night—
In fact, I'm here to play until
The River Styx is frozen, Bill."
And sb the game went on and on;
Old Bill grew cross and weak and
While Uncle Sam, without a smile
Raked in the last chip from Bill's pile.

also been discharged from the service,
