FARMING FOLLOWS THE AX N. W- Durham Writes of Visit to Farms Near Newport- Profit Making On Cleared Lands. N. w. DURHAM. A few years ago Charles M. Talmadge was Great Northern station agent at Newport, with practically no knowledge of agriculture. Today he. owns Silver Birch Farm, within a scant mile of the depot grounds where he once fingered the telegraph key, and is a recognized authority on intensive farming. And Silver Birbh Farm, with more than 200 acres, brought from the virgin forest to the highest degree of intensive produc tion, is becoming famous as one of the great show farms of the Inland Empire —the Mecca toward which every one may well make pilgrimage who seeks demonstrated knowledge about clearing logged-off lands and their profitable cultivation after the stumps are out and the plow can run free in a furrow. Mr. Talmadge discovered this farm pretty much as a prospector might stumble upon the outcropping of a rich mine. One dry summer he noticed that the town cows ra...

Nearly every year cherry and plum trees in lowa suffer a large amount of damage on account of the common pear slug or cherry slug While the control of this insect has not been considered a very difficult problem, yet it often happens that foliage is greatly dam aged before the owner is aware that any slugs are on his trees. The summary of a bulletin on the work of the slug, issued by the lowa State College of Agriculture, says that the pear slug or cherry slug is a dark, almost black, slimy slug, about twa fifths of an inch long when full grown which feeds on cherry, pear and plum leaves.

VOLUME XII , BOARD HELD PUBLIC HEARINGS To Determine Actual Value of Properties. Will Adjourn Saturday, Aug. 24 During the past week the Board of Equalization has continued its work of endeavoring to equalize the returns made by the field deputy assessors. Up to this time but few raises have been considered by the Board, but numerous reductions have been made in order to make the assessment equitable. The work on the assessment of the town of Newport has taken considerable time, for the reason that our people contended that residence properties, as a whole, had been put in at too high a figure as compared with the business district. The question as to the actual percent age of real value at which the business district was assessed, having been brought up repeatedly, the Board on Friday afternoon summoned before it every owner of realty in the business district who could be reached, and took sworn testimony as to the actual valua tions. Some took radical positions, placing the values...

A PRIZE WINNING DAIRY HERD AT THE SPOKANE INTERSTATE FAIR, There's something about the climate of this great Inland Empire which seems to agree with cattle as well as people, and dairy cows especially appre ciate it. Many of the best milk records are now held by cows bred and ra .J s< fr on the Pacific slope, and northwestern breeders confidently expect; soon to bo a most of the world's records. Many milk cows will be entered by their amb - tious owners in the milk test to be held at the Spokane Interstate Pair dur ing the week of Sept. 30. and this test promises to be a keen contest. Any milk cow is eligible, either grade or pure bred, and each cow entered will be given credit both for butter fat and for milk produced. All tests will be made in public by the dairy department of the Washington State college and every possible opportunity given to the public to learn all about how the test is run and what record each cow is making A model creamery will also be operated every day i...

NEWS FROM OUR NATIONAL CAPITAL President Vetoes Wool Bill, Holding The Rates Are Too Low. Washington.—Holding that its low rates would bring disaster to home in dustry, President Taft returned to congress with his veto a bill to revise the wool tariff —schedule "K" of the Payne-Aldrich law. With the return of the bill, Presi dent Taft sent an appeal to congress not to adjourn until a measure had been enacted substantially reducing unnecessary protection for the wool ipdustry of the country. While the present bill and the one disapproved last year were identical in terms, the president's reason dif fered. He vetoed the former because it had been framed before the tariff board's report—the latter because he said it had been framed with disre gard for the board's findings. "Most of the rates in the submitted bill," wrote the president, "are so low In themselves that if enacted into law the inevitable result would be irre- Vievable injury to the wool-growing Industry—ttie enforced idlen...

Farm and Garden DANGEROUS POTATO ILL Fungicides of No Use In Controlling Foreign Wart Disease. In a bulletin on "Two Dangerous Im ported Plant Diseases," issued by the United States department of agricul ture, it is stated that the wart disease of the potato has not yet reached the United States, but has been introduced into Newfoundland from Europe. Extensive experiments have been conducted in England with various fungicides and variety tests of pota toes. There seems to be a consensus of opinion that fungicides are not ef ficacious in controlling the disease. The following chemicals have been used on the soil with unsatisfactory results: Sulphur, soot, quicklime, ground lime, formalin, ferrous sul phate. calcium bisulphate, potassium bisulphite, calcium sulphite, sodium bo rate. potassium sulphid. copper sul phate and lead acetate Experiments were also conducted by sprinkling the sets before planting with sulphur, lime.

CHINESE REPUBLIC REACHES CRISIS Pekin Correspondent Says Bru tal Execution Marks Turning Point. London. —The execution of Chang Chen Wu by Chinese government offi cials is compared by the Pekin corres pondent of the Daily Telegraph to Na poleon's shooting of the Due d'Eng hien, at Vincennes, in 1804, and what followed. It is the turning point, the writer asserts, in the life of the Chi nese republic. The correspondent continues: "President Yuan Shi Kai, alarmed at the outcry, is publishing Vice-presi dent Li Yuan Hung's telegrams in or der to fasten the blame on that official and, fearing assassination, surrounds himself by troops. "According to Chinese newspapers the execution was carried out a fiendish manner. The bannermao gen eral, Yuan Chi Kuei, who was entrust ed with the execution, actually dined with his victim in an European hotel and toasted him repeatedly. When the dinner was over, he followed his victim in another carriage to his lodg ing. "On alighting from the vehicle,...

Farm and Garden TURKEY GROWING TIME. They'll Be Fine Along About Thanks giving or Christmas Day. Turkeys can be grown with less care and attention than any of the domestic fowls except geese. But unfortunately on almost all farms turkeys are al lowed the range of the farm, no mat ter how large, and this causes trou ble. In the first place, they are apt to make their nests where they are hard to find, and after the young ones are hatched they will be over too much territory to be good for the little ones before they are a month or two old. After that time unlimited range can be A PINE SPECIMEN. allotted unless they are disposed to go into places where they may come to harm, says a correspondent of Farm Progress. To raise turkeys in the way that causes least trouble and always in sures the raising of the largest flock is as follows: First fence off with a small meshed high woven wire fence —say seven or even eight feet high—several acres of land. It is better if some of the land is co...

I. M. Howell, secretary of state, has announced that he will be a candidate to succeed himself in the present office, subject to the Republican primaries Sept. 10. The record he has made dur ing the past three years as a state offi cer should serve as a splendid recom mendation, and will undoubtedly be the main influence in gaining the nomina tion for him this fall. An officer who has "made good" should certainly be rewarded with a second term. Mr. Howell is a Westerner in every sense. For 35 years he has been a resi dent of the state of Washington, mov ing here in 1877 from lowa. He is a married man. During the years previ ous to 1901 he was engaged in private business, absorbing business principles which have been of great value in his public career. In 1901 and for the next eight years he was con nected with the auditor's office of Pierce county, holding the office of county au ditor from 1905 to 1909. In 1909 he was appointed to the office of secretary of state, and his record s...

NEWS FROM OUR NATIONAL CAPITAL Much Important Legislation is Acted on, But President Uses Veto Vigorously. Washington.—Congress acted upon more important legislation the past week than during any one week of the present session. Most of the impor tant work, however, was upset by President Taft, who freely used the veto power. He not only vetoed the wool and steel tariff bills, but return ed with disapproval the appropriation bill because of its amendments to abolish the commerce court and limit the tenure of office of civil service employes to seven years. While the wool and steel bills were overridden by the house, the presi dent was sustained in his veto of the appropriation bill. Senate Sustains Vetoes. The senate voted to sustain vetoes of the president on the wool and steel tariff revision bills. On the steel bill, the motion to override the president did not even obtain a majority. On neither measure did the vote approach the necessary two-thirds. Senator Simmons called up the...
