HOW TO ECONOMIZE. f"OME men economize so closely on the number of words in a telegram that the receiver can not understand it. This is not i 1 sensible economy. Neither is it sensible economy to ruin garments of value with cheap soap or powerful chemicals that eat into the fabric. True economy uses Ivory Soap in the laundry. It is the most of pure soap that can be sold for the money. Chemically it is as innocent as water. Yet it does everything you can ask of a soap.

fi —~" T* 1 >x ■3(yu\. * A-fj J * *--r^'— GRAFTING STONE FRUITS. A Jersey Grower* New Method and the I i>»i ruiiifii t I'sed. At a meeting of the New Jersey State Horticultural society Mr. Martin Ernst, a very successful fruit grower, intro duced a method of grafting which was now to most of those present. He said: When you cut a twig from a tree (holding up a cut portion Hi> inches through), if it does uot heal over in oue season, it causes the root to rot. The damage done to a tree by cleft graftiug seldom heals perfectly the first season and results often in decay setting in. In my method I use this little instru ment, which has its cutting portion of V shape attached to a shank with a wooden handle. I then take a twig, cut the top off, leaving the stock about an inch through, then on the side of the stock I cut out with my instrument a place for the insertion of the scion, which is shaped on the lower end with a very sharp knife to tit closely the GRAFTING WITH A NEW TO...

A GREAT WHEAT CROP Phenomenal Yields On the Fer- tile Palouse Hills. A Karge Number of Fields Have Shf-llod Out Fifty or More Ituhhi-1* to the Acre. Following are a number of reports from the grain fields of the Palouse country. It in only fair to presume that these are among the best, but in many of them it in ntoutly maintained that the known yields are from measured acres und are as nearly correct as can be given. Certain it is that over a large majority of the Palouse country this is the phenomenal crop, not even excepting that of 181)7. As has been the case for the past four years, the heaviest crops are on the lighter and earlier lands of the western portion of Whitman county, though, where proper summer fallowing has been done and foul growths kept down, there are generally magnificent crops in the eastern part, with so far ideal weather for the harvest. However, the harvest promises to be a long one, Imcmm of the immense amount of straw and well filled heads to handle, and i...

Instead of a plank, this may be called a blanket of the Virginia platform. Senator Vest is not disposed to grow enthusiastic over the suggestion made by Senator James K. Jones of Arkan sas, that the democratic party nomi nate for the presidency in 1904, "some discreet jurist or obscure business man." This foxy policy, the M...

WAR ON BEET SUGAR Unfriendly Interests Aim a Blow at the Industry. All Friends of Beet Sugar Are Behooved to Stand Shoulder to Shoulder. A few days ago a formal announce ment was made to the effect that the American Sugar Reiining Company .com monly known as the sugar trust, was about to increase its capital stock by the amount of 115,000,000, and there has been much speculation in business and financial circles as to what purpose the company has in view. It now seems probable that one of the objects of the company is to hinder the steadily grow ing beet sugar industry of the United States. ThiH jh a scheme that seems almost incredible, but there is no getting over the Fact that the industry in question IwiH do more determined enemy than those who are interested in the im portation and refining of foreign sugars. It behooves every public spirited and fairmmded man, in congress and out, to do what in him lies to defeat the plans of those who would fain ruin what is in reality one of ...

From June 29 tc July 27 the average temperature (gov ernment report) was '.ts.:{ degrees, and for six consecutive days the mercury reached an average of l<>;{ degrees. That Nebraska was iiot burned up com pletely was due to copious rains during June, the absence of continuous hot winds during the heated term and chiefly to tin- self sustaining qualities oi its soil.
