News is to the effect that nearly all
business is suspended in thu various
state capitals, where assemblies have

man, James i. Blaine. Following the
death yesterday came the president, and
in quick succession memliers of the cab
inet, then one after another a constant
stream of the most prominent people in
official life called and left words of con
dolence. Iseturning from Ms visit to
the house of death, President Harrison
issued a proclamation to the people of
the United States announcing the death,
giving a brief resume of the public
career of the late illustrious statesman,
paying tribute to his devoti in to public
interests, to his marked ability and his
Up to a late hour in the afternoon the
remains lay in the front room, south
west corner, third floor, where the pa
tient ha been uninterruptedly confined
since the beginning of his fatal illness.
There is no crepe on the door, and no
indication, since the throng of callers
partially ceased, that there has been
anything unusual to mar the serenity of
the household. President Harrison sent
for Senator Frye, of Maine, to consult
about Blaine's fuuerat, which he
thought should be public and . at the
capital. Of course there has been no
opportunity to consult with the family,
but Senator Frve had no doubt they
would interpose no objection to this
honor being paid to the memory of the
dead statesman. At 1 :30 p. in. it was
stated by friends of the family that the
funeral arrangements bad been so fur
determined upon that services would be
held Monday forenoon, and the remains

The "Royal" the Strongest and
Purest Baking Powder.
Whether any other baking powder is equal to
"Royal," let the official reports decide. When
Ihe different powders w ere purchased on the open
market and examined by Prof. Chandler, of the
New-York Hoard of Health, the result showed that
Royal Halting Powder contained twenty-seven
per cent, greater strength than any other brand.
When compared in money value, this difference
would be as follows.:
If one pound of Royal Baking Powder sells
for 50 cents,
One pound of no other powder is worth over
36 cents. .
If another baking powder is forced upon you
by the grocer in place of the Royal, see that you
are charged the correspondingly low er price.

the I'aliHiMe Urchin.
1 ieo. Bchhaw, of the famous Oregon
wheat producing family ; is 011 a visit to
the Palouse region. Of grain production
there Mr. B. says : ''The. general price
of land is from $2(1 to f"0 per acre ac
cording to quality. This lust year was
unusually dry for wheat raising, the
same as in the Willamette, but the aver
age about here was twenty-five bushels
per acre, and would have been more if
the weather had remained cooler just at
the time, it came out in head and began
to fill. I believe by some different mode
of farming, their quality of w heat which ,
is from seven to ten cents per 100 pounds
lower than ours, might be made to reach
within two or three cents. In tbe first
place, they are ruining their land just
like many in the valley have done, ruis
ing wheat after wheat for a dozen years
or more without fallow ing it, plowing
thin and cultivating the wild oats, which
are getting pretty thick, and generally
seeding w ith spring wheat which is the
little chair red club, one bushel per acre
and sometimes less, and just as it comes
from the threshing machine, with all
the small grains which is a great detri
ment to the whole crop.
It needs to be well cleaned through a .
good fanning mill, small grains taken
out, and then sown about one bushel
and a peck to an acre. I think some -other
white winter varieties would do
better, and should be put in daring tho
fall, as early as possible, so as to escape
this burning, and which would get past
that warm time while filling and bring
a better price in tbe market.' I have
just received a letter from a gentleman
in Olijo, by tbe name of T. P. Vance.
He wants me to furnish him with 125,000
bushels of wheat for seed this season. I
think, by his letter, that his idea is to
sell it out in small quantities. I am
sorry he had not let me known sooner;
but you can see now what might be done,
and w hat has already been accomplished
with the best wheat of all nations from
Lane county and the prospect is encour
aging that we shall again achieve laurels
and show to the world that the state of
Oregon is invincible."
The Stormy Petrel. Knuurance.
X. Y. Sun. During a recent trip
across the Atlantic the passengers on
one steamer had a vivid illustration of
the endurance of the stormy petrel.
Shortly after the ship left the Irish
coast two or three of these birds were
sighted at the stern of the ship. One
hud beeu caught at some previous time
and its captor tied a bit of red flannel or
ribbon round its neck and let it go.
The bit of red made the bird very con
spicuous and it could be easily identi
fied. That bird, with others that could
not be easily distinguished, followed tbe
ship clear across the ocean. Rarely,
during the daytime ut least, was it out
of sight, and if for an hour or two it was
lost to view while feeding on the refuse
cast overboard it 410011 reappeared, and
the lasr seen of it was within a few
mile of Sandy Hook, when it disap
peared, perhaps to follow some outward
bound steamer back to Ireland. When
the fact Is considered thtit the ship, di'.y
and night, went at an nverago spe-.'d of
nearly twenty miles an hour tho feat
performed by the daring traveler can 1
better appreciated. When or bow it
rested is inexplicable.
