Tho American : Agriculturist, in
its annual review of the harvests,
to bo puplished in its September
issue, estimates that tho farm profits
this year will be 1,000,000,000
more than during the recent ' years
of depression. On tho basis of the
present pronpects the corn eiop of
1801 is estimated to be 2,000,000,000
bushels; wheat, 500,000,000 bushels;
and oats, 022,000,000 bushels. The
total yield of wheat, corn and oats
on the basis of this estimate will be
28.8 per cent, greater than lust year,
and 10.7 per cent, above the average
of the precending eleven years. On
this basis of value of the corn
crop will be to the farmers, $1,000,
000,000; wheat, $500,000,000; and
oats, $250,000,000. This is $150,

CARE OF MILK.
No drugs are fit to put in milk to
destroy germs. Salycilic acid and
borax are the least harmful, but no
one, unless he has them for sale,
will advise their use. Heating is
the only safe method, but simple
boiling does not destroy all the
spores, lo kill them a heat of 240
degrees Fahrenheit is required, or
alternate boiling and cooling for
l ne practice ot boiline milk is
rapidly growing in tho cities. Doc
tors prescribe it and some furnish
it to patients, being convinced that
without it their treatment would be
of little use. Nine-tenths of all the
cases of cholera infantum aro due
to bad milk.
1 he best way to boil milk is to
put it in a bottle with a long neck
plugged with cotton. Subject it to
steam tor an hour, then cool rapidly
Healthy milk is more digestible
before boiling, but bad milk must
bo boiled or it cannot be used with
safety. Two hours' boiling will kill
everything, but ten minutes' boiling
three days in succession will be
equally effective. The taste of milk
is changed at 160 decrees. At 155
degrees Fahrenheit the taste is not
changed. Heating to that degree
six days in succession will render
milk sure from souriug,' but this is
not practicable. A more practical
way is to heat to 155 degrees, then
cool to near the freezing point, when
it will keep many times longer than
if not treated. Cooling alone will
also greatly delay souring if done as
6oon as drawn. ' -
THg FRUIT TREE PKSTS.
Now that the authorities that be
have forbidden, under penalties,
the sale of any infected fruit, the
necessity of eradicating the fruit
trees pest is brought right home to
every orchardist. The following,
from an exchange, is pertinent in
this connection : The apple crop
of Oregon has heretofore been a
voluntary crop. Apples have crown
spontaneously and their production
has been so favorable and at such
littlo expense, that this valuable
fruit has beeurneglected and left to
the ravages of injurious and obnox
ious pests. The effects are now
seriously felt, and apprehensive of
impending danger of complete fail
ures in recent years, the fruit and
its enomics are beginning at this
late day to receive much needed
attention. A few years ago during
the apple season "the orchards of
tho valley were luxuriant with the
luscious products, and many bush
els were allowed to go to waste.
The farming ocoumunity regarded
apples as a crop of secondary
importance on account of their
inexpensive production and but lit
tle attetion was manifested in tho
outcome. But to-day it is different.
The constant immigration puts
larger demands on the apple than
the market can supply and the pests
are spreading rampant.
The finding of antidotes for the
voracions insects that prey 'upon
the fruit, vegetable and grains, has
been one of the questions that has
engaged the earnest attention of
scientific agriculturists and horti
culturists, with varying success. It
win be remombered that Mr. Alfred
Kceble, of California, . introduced
tho lady bug into that state from
Australia with such good result in
tho destruction of fruit insects.
lie is about to make a second trip j
to that lar-oft continent in search of
a destroyer of tho grasshopper, said
to exist there, and it is hopeful he
may find it. People in the Eastern
states years ago who were fighting
tho so-called Colorado potato bug
made very little progress against it
until an insect that destroyed the
eggs of the potato bug came to their

The Farm Journal says a New
York dairyman doubled the yield
of butter per cow of his herd in
one year by testing every cow and
disposing of the poor ones and feed
ing a little better his new herd.
Both acts are in full accord with
modern dairy gospel.

and not, another year should go by
without the building of at least
two good roads through the entire
length of the county. A very great

ing of gravel placed on them, and
now they are hard and smooth, and
it is a pleasure to drive over them.
