Sed Selection Heirs Crop.
In the past four or Ave years the de
velopment of mllo raalie as a grain
crop hns Veen progressing rapidly. The
carefully selected mllo maize of today
Is a great Improvement over the com
mon. nnselected crop. Ordinarily the
stalk has been reduced, by selection,
to a uniform height of 4 to 4 4 feet In
regions lying at an altitude of 3000 to
4000 feet. Through selection of seed.
the heads have been changed from
mostly drooping to mostly erect. By
further car In choosing the seed,
branching has been almost entirely pre
vented and the growth of "suckers
has been checked. Mllo maize Is at
present the most successful Summer
grain crop for dry regions. It is ear
Her and a more drought resistant crop
than corn and makes a satisfactory
feeding substitute. The average yields
of corn under same' conditions have been
10 bushels to the acre less than those
The soil requirements for mllo maize
are about the same as those for corn.
Well worked sandy loams or clay loams
are best. The roots penetrate to depths
of three to four feet In ordinary soils.
Fair yields result on rather poor lands.

upon how the soil Is handled to con

R. B. Miller, traffic manager of the
Harrlman lines, has been Instrumental
In the Introduction of mllo maize In
Oregon, lie believe that carefully se
lected seed, through a period of from
two to three years, will develop a crop
that can be easily and economically
rrown In the driest portions of the
state. The crop requires about the same
attentions as corn and can. be harvested
at much less expense. The seed con
tains the principal value and Is fed to
chickens, rattle and hogs, without being;
removed from the stalk. It has been
found best to allow the stock to thresh
out the seed for Itself. -
Mr. Miller also urges farmers to grow
It for commercial purposes, but advises
that greatest profits can be derived by
feeding It to livestock right on the

as worth SI a bushel, which Is consider

RATE WILIi AFFECT PORTLAXD
Shippers Interested in Case Xow
Reins Heard at Tacoma.
Portland shippers . and railroad men
are watching with keen interest develop
ments In the rate case now being heard
at Tacoma and which may result In the
establishment of lower class rates from
the western terminals to points west of
The case has grown' out of the appli
cation of the Spokane shippers to the
Interstate Commerce Commission for
lower commodity rates to points between
Spokane and the eastern slope of the
Cascades and the Intervention In that
case of Walla Walla. Kennewlck and
Baker for similar concessions.
After those cases had been filed Ta
coma and Seattle Instituted an action
before the Washington State Commis
sion for a rate eastward to meet the
Spokane reduction. If It Is granted by
the National body. Chehatis. Centralis,
Aberdeen and Hoqulam have Intervened.
While Portland has not Intervened In
that case, this city Is Interested for the
reason that If the commission grants
the reduction to the Western Washing
ton cities similar reductions must be
made out of Portland.
Archibald Gray. assistant general
freleht and pa.senger agent of the Great
Northern, and Harvey E. Lounsbury.
assistant general freight agent for the

land to Tacoma to reypresent their re
spective roals at the -hearing. W. W.
Cotton, general attorney for the O.-W.

The railroads are asking the Washing
ton commissioners to reserve judgment
In the cu until after the Interstate
Commission makes Its decision In the
Spokane case, which It now has under
a-trlsemect. The two casvs are so close
ly Interwoven, it Is pointed out. that a
decision In the one cannot be made
without complicating the other.

TACOMA FOILED ON RECORD
Portland longshoremen Loaded
Ships Tears Ago In Less Time.
Portland stevedores refuse to concede
Tacoma's claim that it holds the Paclflo
Coast record for loading vessels, because
longshoremen stowed 1000 tons aboard
the American-Hawaiian liner Alaskan In
nine hours and 4& minutes. It Is said
that each longshoreman averaged 2.6C
tons an hour against the former record
of 2S tons an hour.
Local stevedores say that in 1898 a ves
sel was loaded with 22.0tO sacks of wheat
at the old Victoria dock in nine hours
and the gang numbered but 14 men. while
with the same sized crew another carrier
was given ZMTC0 aacks of wheat at Irving
dock in nine hours, the following year,
the grain approximating 14 tons. At
present the dally average ia fM tons with
no effort being made to lower tne time
and In every Instance the crew numbers
less than the Tacoma contingent. Lately
no rapid work haa been done for an en

Kellogg Interests Xow Have Extra
Set of Machinery on Hand. -When
the steamer Joseph Kellogg is
stripped of her boiler, shaft and piping.
In ad.aUon to smaller gear that will be
necessary to prepare the way for the
installation of a boiler with heavier
steam pressure, a larger shaft and new
piping, the Kellogg Transportation Com

set of machinery for a sternwheel steam
er and there Is in contemplation the
construction of a llghtdraft carrier to
care for business of the Cowlitz River
basin, much of which Is drawn by Ta
coma firms but should come to port
land. The Kellogg made her last trip yester
day and on ber arrival the work of
stripping her of the boiler was begun.
In a few days she will be towea to sup
ple' a yards for an overhauling and it is
thought she will be ready tor service in
a month. The steamer Sarah Dixon has
been chartered for the Cowllts River
route temporarily. Captain Kellogg said
he engines and other parts- were storea

and shaft would be taken there and
housed until the llghtdraft vessel was

BELL SIGXAL 'IS ORDERED
Three Coasting Steamers to Adopt
Sew Submarine Safeguards.
First of the lines operating out of
Portland to adopt a modern nautical
safeguard, the submarine signal bell,
will be the San Francisco & Portland
Steamship Company, which has closed a
contract with the Submarine Signal Com
pany for Installing the apparatus on the
steamers Beaver. Bear and Rose City.
In addition, the Pacific Mall Steamship
Company will equip seven of Its vessels
In the trans-Paclflo trade.
The bell indicates to masters or offi
cers on watch when the vessels are with
in a certain range of a llghtvessel or
other station where the shore apparatus
Is maintained and for that reason Is
valued during foggy- or stormy condi
tions, when objects near land are diffi
cult to distinguish. Llghtvessel No. 88,
stationed off the Columbia River, and
others of the coast stations, have the
bell signal gear, which is submerged in
deepwater and is operated by a mechan
ism similar to clockwork, so that at
regular Intervals the bell sounlds, each
station having a separate system of
strokes so they can be distinguished.
Steamers having the bell system are
equipped with dlaphrams, one on each
side of the keel and the same distance
from the bow, which are connected with
the pilothouse by a telephone that haa
two receivers. On approaching a light
vessel the operator fits the receivers to
his ears and by the sounding of the bell,
which has been distinguished a distance
of 14 miles, it can be ascertained whether
the vessel is heading directly tor the
station or to port or starboard, the sound
in one ear being more pronounoed thad
in the other. ' When the vessel is head
ing directly for the station, the compass
is consulted to learn the definite course.

My Terms Treatment
within the reach of all. I will not acoept your case If I cannot cure
' yoo. I will give you an absolute guarantee to care you or not charge
you one cent for my services.
The reason hundreds of men today
are discouraged is because they have
given no care to whom they entrust
ed their case, their precious health.
They do not consider the ability,
professional standing and reputa
tion of the physician or specialist
of whom they took treatment, but
have considered far more the fact
that by not going to a specialist of
ability thay could get cheaper treat
ment. Such is not the case, because
It requires ability and skill to cure
any one of the ailments to which I
devote my full time and attention.
- and the specialist who possesses the
ability to cur's, gets all the business
he can attend to. If you are today
discouraged because you have not
been cured It is your own fault.
You have no one else to blame but
yourself. If you have sought treat
ment and are not cured, it is simply
because of the fact that you have
not thought enough of your health,
your life, to pay the pr'ce of a com
petent, reliable specialist, who pos
sesses the ability necaaaary to cure
The one thing for any man to
consider is simply this: 'Tt want to
get cured. I must get the ailment
conquered before it conquers me."
If you look at this matter from this
Standpoint, valuing as you must do
your future health and happiness,
vou will consult at ones the. BEHT
and MOST RELIABLE specialist, one whom you know from his per
manently and long-established reputation to be the best, and if your case
Is placed with him the cure will surely follow In short order.
