Or., who has been collecting and shipping East the bulbs and seeds of the wild flowers ot southern uregon, has built up quite a business in that line This summer, it is said, will see the last of the famous Harney Valley (Or.) crickets. They aro dying by millions from some disease, and have not yet de- posited their eggs. Those who have ob served their habits say the disease which has caused their destruction in other places is the same to all appearances that which is killing them there. They have been in the valley in numbers ever since it was first visited by the whites, In the forestry building at trie World's Fair Oregon takes a back seat for no State or nation, her forestry exhibit be , ing a revelation even to Oregonians who have spent their lives in the forests. She shows the largest block of wood in the building. This is a cross section from the trunk of a tide-land spruce, and is ten feet in diameter. This section was cut twenty feet above the butt, which was sixteen feet in diameter. The tree of which it was a part was quite a sprout when (Jolumbus started on his hrst vov age, and before it was felled its topmost branches towered more than 300 feet above terra flrma, or high enough to af ford ample shade for the monster Ferris wheel s cars on the upper level, uregon shows also a beautiful house constructed wholly of Oregon woods. It is ten feet square, nineteen feet high, and is sur mounted by an open cupola. The build' alfhighlv polished, elegantly carved and arranged in the most attractive fashion possible to show the native woods of the State. The roof is supported by four nicely carved Doric columns of maple, while a like number of similar columns of oak support the roof of the cupola. Just now the newspapers of Oregon are having a great deal to say about Or egon fruit being shipped East, where it is sold as a California product. There is too much truth in the statement to make the thing funny. But a few days ago at Chicago some Orgonians, desirous of learning whether or not there was any sale for Oregon fruits, took occasion to give the matter a fair test, and at the same time "evened up" on California for having so long sailed under false colors by palming off as her own Oregon choicest fruits. Just outside the World's Fair grounds some boys were selling Califor nia (genuine, not" Oregon-grown) pears, peaches, apricots and cherries, and the little fellows were loudly crying their wares "Fresh California fruit !" "Cal ifornia peaches:" "California pears!" The Oregonians approached the boys, examined their fruits, and told the boys that it was not California fruit they were selling, and apsured them it was grown in Oregon. The boys said it might be Oree.m for a'll they knew they said it wa from California because that ; made it sell better, then the wise men from Oregon dug down in their jeans and brought up some shining two-bit pieces, which they gave to the boys with the understanding that they were to shout " Oregon fruit," " Oregon pears," etc.. during the remainder of that day.

Characteristic Traits of a Good and Profitable Hen. WETTING A5D C00KLN0 MEAL Soino Valuable Information Culled In the Interest of the Intel ligent Agriculturist. How manv Oonltrvmen en nick nnt. a good laying hen from a strange flock? Not many can do it ; yet it can easily be done after a short study of make-up and char actoristics.says a writer in Northwest farmer. There goes a hen with a thick neck, large head, ill-shaped, walks list lessly about, seemingly with no inten tion or purpose in view. She does not care to scratch ; she hangs around the nennouse, evidently waiting for her next feed. She gets up late in the morning, and goes to bed early in the evening. That hen may be put down as a very poor layer. The eggs of some of tl.n other hens go to help nav her keep. Here comes another. She walks briskly, and there ia an elasticity in her move ments which shows she has something in view. She is neat and natty in ap pearance, small head, with a slim neck, nicely arched or curved. She forages or scratches all day long, and may be too busy to come for her evening meal. She is at the door in the morning waiting to be let out. She snatches a few niouth fuls of feed, and Is off to the meadow, looking for insects. Before she gets out in-the morning she generally deposits her daily egg in the nest, or returns after a short forage. She is neat, clean and tidy, with a brightness and a fresh ness pleasant to the eye. That 1b the hen that pays for her feed and gives a good profit all the year round. The wri ter has noticed these traits since boy hood, and knows that they are infallible. By studying these traits any man may in a few years have a fine flock of bens. CABt OF BONftY.

Twice aerating will help it wonderfully. When you churn the cream from such milk always granulate to somewhere near the size of No. 8 shot. Draw oft the bnttermilk, and cover the butter with ice-cold water. Let it stand ten or fifteen minutes, and draw off; then re peat. This will free it from the taint as much as you can by mechanical means. For a long time we have wanted to try to neutralize this taint, and wish that some of our readers who are troubled in this way would put about an ounce of rose water to sixty gallons of cream be fore churning and report their experi ence with it. We believe it would work, but the lack of garlicky cream prevents our making the experiment at some fu ture time. yoris.

One of the most astuto business men in New York city, who has through his own efforts built up an enormous estab lishment, and who gives employment to hundreds of men, some of them at very large salaries, told me he had very little difficulty in finding the right kind of men for any department of his work. I was surprised to learn this and asked him what was the secret of bis success. He said: "I have men to whom I par as much as $8,000 a year. I have sometimes been disappointed in my selection of helpers, but as a rule I never fail to get the kind of a man I want My first rule is to se lect for experienced help only the men who have succeeded in what they have undertaken. "No matter how prepossessing a man may be, how taking in appearance or in apparent qualifications, I never engage him," he added, "if I find that he has made a failure in anything. On the oth er hand, no matter how plain and un prepossessing a man maybe, if I learn from his story that be has been promoted step by step; that he has always re mained in a place nntil be was advanced, and that every chango he made was a change for the better, I engage him at once.
