The United States Government is
soon to establish three stations at
widely separated points for the sci
entifio study of magnetic currents
and electrical phenomena. These
are to be fixed at Washinton, Sitka
and Honolulu. The construction
of these stations and the adjustment
of their delicate instruments will
require a degree of skill and a
nicety of discernment that can only
be acquired by the moBt careful
study. Magnetic storms and their
correlation to sun spots and the
phenomena of the aurora borealis
are discussed upon the basis of the
ory, mainly, and it is in the hope
to bring demonstrated fact to this
discussion that these magnetic ob
servatories are to be established.
This field of investigation is an en
tertaining one. So close is the
connection between magnetic dis
turbances, meteorological phenom
ena and human affairs, that it
could not be otherwise. It may
require years to obtain any appre
ciable result from the minute study
of the forces of the air, but such
results as are likely to be obtained
will prove ample recompense for
tedious and baffling effort.

The household of Minister Conger
at Pekin, consisted of himself, his
wife, his daughter Laura, and his
niece, Miss Mary Pierce, of Des
Moines. Other attaches and resi

Mr. Squires, First Secretary of the
Legation, his wife and three child

The State Hoard of Agriculture
is making a great effort this year
to make the state fair a represonta
tive agricultural and live ' stock
show. The premium list is out and
is ueinir tnorouKtiiy ununuuicu
throughout the state and persona
efforts are Wing made to attract
the attention of farmers and stock
men to the very liberal premiums
Several counties in the state are
preparing a county exhibit for the
fair, for they realize it will ho a
good opportunity to advertise their
county in a most practical way
Each exhibit will lie a lecture room
and an object room for the home
seeker, where he can get informs
tion, along intelligent lines, and
will be worth many dollars in ad
vertising the county's resources.
The live stock show will undoubt
edly the K'st ever held on the coast.
Breeders all over the country are
preparing to exhibit at the fair
this year. There is an opportunity
here in Oregon for the farmers who
have been running into debt raising
wheat, to turn their attention to
the profitable production of beef,
mutton and pork, or engage in
dairying which has already taken
its place as a leading paying in
dustry in this state. There is a de
mand for the best specimens of all
breeds which will continue to grow
for years to come, and there
nothing that will encourage this
industry so much as stock shows at
state and county fairs.
The board of regents of the state
Agricultural College at Corvallis,
have passed a resolution prohibit
ing inter-collegiate athletic con
Considerable discussion, pro and
con as to the merits of the resolu
tion and the effect its adoption
would have upon the future of the
col lego was indulged in. I ho reso
lution reads as follows:
"Whereas, inter-collegiate games
have passed the bounds of reusjn
and developed into a form of mania
that is demoralizing to the moral,
mental and physical well being of
college students, and
" tiereas, the records of all edu
cational institutions show that the
standing of those students engaged
n athletics compare in nearly all
cases unfavorably with the. stand
ing of other students, and
" hereas, the same overtaxing
of strength and endurance in dumb
brutes that is visited upon athletes
is made a misdemeanor, punishable
by stalulo law, and
"Whereas, tho doings of the few
athletes absorbs the attention and
demoralize the studies of the whole
body of students for long periods,
to the utter prostitution of the pur
poses for which colleges of agricul
ture and mechanics wero benefi
cently endowed, therefore he it
"Hesolved that tho board of re
gents hereby prohibits the students
of the Agricultural college fnm
engaging in inter-collegiate athletic
contests, or contests with any other
college, school or club; but the fac
ulty should encourage as much as
lossible all healthful athletic or
other sports upon tho grounds of
lhere was considerable discussion
of the general subject of athletics
while the resolution was pending.
Kxpressions of opinion were vouch
safed by most of those present. A
substitute tor the resolution was
offered. It proposed the encour
agement of athletics and the em-
loyment of a physical director. It
received but two votes, being the
votes of the members who made
and seconded the motion for its
adoption. In the discussion of the
original resolution it was arguod
that a loss of some students might
result. It was argued from the
other standpoint that throughout
the state nine out of every ton
would applaud the adoption of the
resolution and that a greater rather
than a diminished attendance
would result. On the final vote all
but two of the members present
supported the resolution.

meat producers, says the Corvallis
lines, suppose a doe raises hve
ltters of eight young each, she has
40 to her credit. Presuming half
of this litter to be does, there are
four, and these four, if all roes well,
will produce two litters by the end
of a year. Figuring on the same
basis they will produce 104. It
may be presumed that tho se ond
tter of the original doe will pro
duce once, and on this basis of fig
uring there will be 62 more, making
total of 16b antes as the increase
of one doe. If they are of cood
breeding they will weigh eight
pounds each at the age of eight
months. Thus it will be seen that
hree figures are required to express
he weight of the increase of one
doe in the course of a year.
I'arih EXi'osmos letter.
Frura our IWauWr CtM-tvipomtatil,
Paris, Franco, July 0.
What tho Paris exposition most
needs is condensation by eliniiua
tion. , I shall continue to call it the
Paris exposition and not as it calls
itself L'Kxiitwition Universal et
Internationale. The nations hav
boon "taken in," squeezed and ah
ioi bed, but considering the bloat
ing bigness of France in this gre it
advertising scheme and the com
parative peliness of all others there
is no reason why we should he
the deception by calling it univer
sal or international.- France need
ed money, 1'itris needed money, and
they said: Lol let us invito all the
peoples of the earth to board with
and buy from us for a season. And
they built great structures and tow
ers and wheels and assembled their
merchandize and made a great fair
and established within it, and
around it, booths for dancing girls,
and dives and joints and fakes, and
bt(t(u and loud was tho roar and
great was the villany and humbug
thereof. Unless these abominable
fakes and side shows can be abated
and unless an exposition of what
genuine and meritorious can be
condensed and put in reasonable
space, they ought to bu discon
tinned. Here in mid summer it is
yet iniH)ssihle to see what is worth
seeing, either because it is not ready
or because you lvavo to walk around
acres of the baldest of fakes am
humbugs, ravenous to "tako you
in" or to sell you something. Lime
and dust tiill the air and make
sight seeing uncomfortable if not
unsanitary. There are many guide
books and they aro no doubt in a
way helpful, but in buildings cover
ing many acres and filled with
miles of show eases and machinery
of great height, a compass is of con
venience and many have them.
I find the United States exhibit
ors situated here and there, appar
ently without system in the main
Champ de Mars building. Their
location is always indicated by the
stars and stripes, and these are
seen over the U. 8. pavilion; in
many places in Champ do Mars; in
a number of annexes; and at Vin
cennes, which place is about two
hours out of l'uria, a most inaccess
able locality, but here most of the
United Stated machinery is to be
found. It was way out on this
frontier that 1 found an American
pioneer, lie told me that his ex
hi bit, the Reliable Incubator and
Brooder Co., of Quinccy, Illinois
was the first exhibit that had been
set up at the exposition. Ho hus
handsome independent pavilion
and is turning out machine chick
ens right along. As an addittona
advertisement, the little chicks are
of all the colors of caster eggs with
some tints of the rainbow thrown
in. Medals from many fairs in the
United States and two European
countries are shown, and he appear
ed to be without competition or
htn t commit, as tho French say.
Seeing tho flag in an unexpected
place yesterday, I found that it
marked a very interesting exhibit
of greater New York. It onsists
of a map 27x33 feet. Undoubtedly
the finest and ntott expensive map
in Paris or any where. Nothing be
fore has been accomplished on such
a scalo. Twelve men worked con
stantly on this map for one year
beforo it was completed. It lies on
the floor surrounded by a brass
balustrade. Every hill, house, ele
vation and depression of the city
and surrounding country and water
in minutest detail, is shown. In
order that it may bo seen at great
est advantage, a platform has been
built, giving about four feet eleva
tion, and this platform is supplied
with opera glasses. Tho platform
is, as it were, off Sandy Hook, and
the visitor who will study tho map
for five minutes from this vantage,
will get a broader and minuter im
pression of tho future greatest city
of the world than in any other way.
The gentlemen in charge at this ex
hibit begged me to state that the
map was the work of the munici
pality of New York City, and that
the state had nothing to do with it.
Its object is to impress the world
with the present greatness and the
future greatestness of New York,
and its desirability as a location for
business or residence.
Last night there was a special il
lumination of the Champs de Mars,
the fountains, the cascades, the
Eiffel tower and other architectural
attractions. The price of four tick
ets was charged for entrance, which
made the crowd select. It was,
nevertheless, very large, and seated
in chairs rented for two sous each,
thirty or forty thousand people,
many of them in evening dress, Bat
for an hour or two enjoying the
brilliant, illumination. ' The ' fcene
was one of rare splendor, and for
the time the fake shows in and
around the exposition ceased to
attract. , ,
I atttended a tea yesterday, given
in tho Palace of Congresses by an
organization of French, American
and English educators. They all
hold professorships in colleges gj
universities of their countries, and
have formed a kind of lcriatUo
educational band or organization,
tho object of which is to make the
Parts exposition and future expo
sition more helpful to the visitor,
Tho plan Is to help him see with
minimum excuse of tinil and
money, what is best worth seeing,
and to protect him from what b
worthless and frivolous. This
done by furnishing us guides, edu
cated specialists in the various
classes covered by tho exposition
The guides will accompany groups
of visitors who will set out with a
defined uhjective and thus avoid the
waste of time and tho fatigue of
aimless wondering in a wilderness
of exhibits, which seen in this way
are no more instructive than hhep
windows. The guides who are ex
perts In their sixiciul eludes and
some of them famous will explain

Secretary Boot who is deply
interested in the future of Cuba,
said on the subject, "My own ex
perience in Cuba lends me to beleive
that the dusire for independence is
both strong and general among the
people. I do not think they want
annexation, even supposing that
we want them. Under the Con
gressional declaration, we aro in
honor bound to give them indepen
dence first. If, subsequently, they
they wish annexation, that Is a
matter for them to determine, Hut
it should be determined when they
are In a petition abolutely hide
ondent of us. Even then it is a
case where it takes two to make a
bargain." (ion. Wood is now on
his way to Washington to consult
with Secretary Hoot alniut the pre
liminaries for tho Cuban Constitu
tional Convention soon to be held.
Mr. Do Weston, a well known
Kentuekian, now in Washington,
said of politics in his state: "T
democrats will not carry Kentucky
this year. I voted for Bryan four
years ago but have seen the mistake
and am willing to admit it. The
Goebel law was a disgraceful meas
tire, und Mr. Bryan came into our
state supHrting it and its ad her-
ents. Ho wilt find that h'm attitude
In that campaign has lost him
many of the votes that otherwise
might have been his. You can
place Kentucky among the republi
can states this year."

We are in receipt of the first
number of the Western Kural Press
published at Salem, Oregon. It is
not as its name would imply a
farm or farmer's paper, but an in
congruous mixture of wild-evetl
populism, blear-eyed socialism and
red -eyed unaicjiism. It is the ex
ponent of neshimisui, It can only
live on distress and woe and dis
content. We predict for it a short
life in jirosjH'rous Oregon. Ked
