Combatting!; Dandelions in Lawns Prof. R. Kent Beattie, botanist at the State College and Experiment Station, has prepared the following statement as an answer to many requests for infor mation as to how to combat dandelions in lawns: The common dandelion is on the in crease as a pej?t in the lawns of Eastern Washington. It is a very difficult plant to eradicate. It perpetuates itself by a large, fleshy root which is difficult to kill and this must be removed before one can get rid of the plant. A very common method is to dig out as much of the root as possible with a long, heavy knife, or with a tool called a spud, and then to put a few drops of coal oil on the cut surface of the roots. In many cases the coal oil kills that part of the root which remains. It is, how ever, not perfectly successful. Some persons have tried sulphuric acid on the roots. This is a difficult thing to han dle, for it is very injurious to the hands and the person. It usually kills the dandelion roots, but ...

I When the issue was first proposed and the commissioners fixed the interest rate at 4£ per cent, they received nu merous communications from bond houses, claiming that the bonds would not find any bidders at a rate less than 5 per cent, and citing the fact that bonds from a county less than ten years old could not be used for collateral for U. S. depositories and like trusts. Never theless the commissioner...

UNPAID SOLDIERS RIOTING IN PEKIN Mutinous Chinese Troops Burn and Slay; Authorities Seem Terrified. Pekin.—Taking the old Chinese cap ital by surprise, some hundreds of Yuan Shi Kai's troops started a series of riots that rapidly penetrated all quarters of the city. They fired in discriminately and caused panic after panic in the crowded streets. Shops were wrecked and burned. The riot ers gave non-payment of their wages as the reason for their outbreak. More than 100 executions have tak en place. For the most part the vic tims are civilians and included six women. Apparently the authorities are afraid to punish the soldiers. There are now 3000 foreign troops in Pekin and the natives feel safe. Five thousand Japanese troops have been ordered from Port Arthur to Tien-Tsin, where there are only 1500 foreign soldiers. As the railway between Pekin and Tien-Tsin is again open the 200 Am erican troops of the 15th Infantry under Major James Arrowsmith ar rived here. The American compounds ...

COUNCIL FOR IPIttSIS Preparing to Put Projects Up To The People. Citizens Attend Council Meeting The regular session of the town coun cil on Tuesday evening was attended by a large number of citizens who are in terested in the proposed municipal im provements now being agitated. At the opening of the session the clerk read a message from Mayor Heslin, in which the mayor placed the seal of his ap proval on the public improvements movement.

TIBBITS In the spring of 1849 a train of wag ons outfitted at St. Joseph, Mo., cross ed the Missouri and set out across the plains for Denver. One of these wag ons contained the wife and two little children—a boy and a girl—besides the belongings, of Edward Starkweather. At that time the native inhabitants of the plains—the Indians, the buffalo and the prairie dog—were in possession.

NEWS FROM OUR NATIONAL CAPITAL Party Vote May Pass Income Tax in House, But Senate is Still in Doubt. Washington.—ft is a foregone con clusion that there will be stormy de bates in both house and senate when the measures authorized by the cau cus of house democrats proposing to put sugar on the free list and substi tute an income tax as a revenue pro ducer, are presented for action. In the house it is apparent that the bills will be passed by a party vote, but their fate in the senate is doubtful. In the senate it is said that in all probability party alignments will be broken, although party leaders made no such concessions publicly. The excise tax, so called by the ways and means committee, is in ef fect an income tax. The bill is so drawn that it is expected to comply with the supreme court's decision against the constitutionality of an in come tax. Its effect would be to tax every person who earns more than $5000 a year on the excess of $5000 at the rate of one per cent. Corpora...

Rudnick, assistant in dairying in the Kansas State Agricultural col lege, says: In buying a separator the most es sential points to be considered are: (1) The amount of milk to be separat ed, (2) the efficiency of the machine, (3) the life or durability of the ma chine, (4) the ease of cleaning the parts coming in contact with the milk, (5) the simple construction of and rigid ness of the gears and pinions, (6) the oiling device, (7) the construction of casing or frame. The efficiency of the machine is a very essential point This does not re fer alone as to whether the machine USING HAND SEPARATOR. will skim clean when skimming a 25 per cent or 30 per cent cream, but if one must furnish a 40 per cent or 45 per cent cream will this machine skim cleaner than any other providing other requirements are equal?

A Fool's Errand Or an Unexpected Turn of Affairs By CLARISSA MACKIE Hal Marcy watched his cousin from under lowering brows. Dick was standing in the sunny window, bis mouth set in grim, obstinate lines. "Well?" repeated Hal coolly. "What is it?" growled Dick over his broad shoulder. "Are you going down to Scarsdale after what I've told you? Why, Alice would only laugh in your face!" Dick turned sharply. "Oh, no. she wouldn't—she's not that sort! She might feel like laughing, but she would hide it well." he ended bitterly. "Why strain her courtesy, then?" persisted Hal. "May I ask whether this is my af fair or yours?" Dick Corning was white under Ms tanned skin. "It is mine in a measure," was Hal's insolent reply. He leisurely drew out a cigarette ease and scratched a match on a gold box. He spoke between puffs of blue smoke that wreathed his dark, thin face: "You—know—when—you— mentioned—you— were—going—down to Scarsdale today I asked you (puff) if you were going down to see Alice W...

The Half Fool By M. QUAD Copyright, 1911, b/ Associated Lit erary Press. One day when Abner Gray appeared In the village of Medina for the first time the first citizen he met sized him up for a half l'ool. He appeared to be a young man of about twenty-four and wag stont and lusty. About all that he had to say was that he was looking for work, and he found it at the livery stable. He was given work at $10 a month, which the stableman had been paying double that to have done, but he had said to Abner: "You see, you may run across a bur ied treasure, and if you do it's all yours." He worked for the liveryman for two months, and then, having found no treasure, he decided to quit his job. There was a rush to secure his serv ices. He was a good worker, and he could be had at half price. He put in a month at the village tavern, and as the treasure still eluded him he en gaged himself to Deacon Spinney. The deacon had a talk with Abner. He was not going to deceive the man in the least. "Abn...

YUAN INAUGURATED CHINA'S PRESIDENT Ceremony at Pekin is Note worthy, But Legations Are Not Represented. Pekin.—Yuan Shi Kai was formally Inaugurated provisional president of the Republic of China in the presence of a great gathering of delegates, pro vincial envoys, military and naval of ficers and other prominent personages in the new foreign office.

Yuan Shi Kai, who was in military uniform, read a declaration promising faithfully to develop the republic, ob serve the constitutional laws and re tire when the national assembly ap pointed a permanent president.
