Di trrloration of Wheat I " It has been said that wheat in Oregon is deteiioratiDg. Geo, Belshnw shows con clusively (hat this is due to impot feet cul ture, and Marving the plant by impoverish. Ing the soil not to sowing the same kind of wheat.'' Wheat, like stock, is improved by proper sslectiou of seed and by strong feed ing or enriching the anil. We give our read' era tho following, biksn frun the Farmer and Dairyman: . . rl j ' ' Now for a practical proof of tin abovs, I have about twenty varieties that, I have been growing about twenty years; fifty' more about ten years, and thirty more about five years. - One-half of these are wiuter and the other, spring .varieties.. . Two-thirds are white, (he others are red iu color. ' These I have obtained from different jconutries and other localities, but few of tbse ; mail a good sample short of 'three )nrs' growth. These wheats I have raised on the samo fields the whole time, and they are now what we might pronouure as perfect wheats, and those persons that saw them at the lute State fair ut Salem would believe this to be true. Again, at the) last World's fair held at New Orleans in 18W these same varieties grown upou the same soil for twenty years gained the first premiums fur tho best spring and wiutar wheat of any class or locality meutioued; also the same us to those for which diplomas were sent me, making seven entries on wheats and taking first premiums on the whole. Again, at the two world's fairs, Philadelphia and Paris, same kinds raised on the same soil drew the lirst premiums and gold nmdal over all others. The grains of these sunie varie ties are larger now and huvfi been improving in size and color for several years. Why is this? Because they are now butter adapted to the soil and climate, the more perfect the wheat matures, the better the yield, hence more, and a better gradt of Hour is made to the bushel. Tho Willamette valley land and climate is probably better adapted to raising a superior quantity of wheat than auy other country. Twenty years ago it was counted nothing uncommon to raise twenty, thirty or forty bushels per acre, and what is the average now? '1 ha last four or live years from sixteen to eighteen bushels; inking the average of all the statu is only ubout twelve bushels per acre. And the average of wheat in England is from twenty eight to thirty bushels;- why is this difference? ' Because they keep the soil up to its proper richness by a better management; while we, in Amer ica, let it go down by raising wheat after wheat without any rest, manuring, rotation of crops, or fertilizing; hence the wheat and llour deteriorate. Look all aronnd to our lauds in general, how they produce to what they did fifteen years ago; many fields one third cockle and wild outs, hardly auy of it merchantable until run through a good clenutr; straw Bhort, heuce the heads and grains diminished in size, and, of course, the flour affected in quality and quantity. The farmers have been changing seed continually for years and their wheats to-duy are not as good as fhny were twenty years ago. I have lately received twelve new varieties from the exhibition at Chicago, raised iu the adjoin ing States for premiums at the show, and not one sample is equal to the screenings of my wheat raised here for twenty years, Wheat will not deteriorate providing the soil is kept up to its proper richness, but will improve by being acclimated. Marion County Suicide. Tuesday afternoon a young mau mimed Simmons committed suicide ou Howell prai rie, Marion county, in a novel manner. He was plowing in a tio acre field and some time between 2 and 4 o'clock, just after starting on bis return across the field from the eastern boundary, he unhitchi d two of the three horses, lied one end of a halter strap to ihe doubletrees and the other about his neck iu a slip-noose, und ufter wulkiug a few steps, Jelibenttely law down and allowed himself to be dragged to death. 'The aul was seen by no one, and the discovery of the commission of the awful act was first made by two young men, Preston Wood aud John leffersou, who were passing ihiougb an ad joining pasture in search of oattle, aud whose attention wus attracted by the ap pearance, of the horses iu the middle of the field, while the other horse and the plow were near the fence, 000 yurds uudant. Life was extinct. Neighbors were liiiuicuiutcl) notified, mid the body was removed to Sap piiigtield's, and Simmon's folks, living threu miles north, were informed of the tragical fate of the young man. , .lljklt'finui llcrmil. Eight years ago a handsome man of digni tied beiii ing and refined appearance pussud through St. Helens, Columbia county, und took up his abode in a deserted cahiu ou the .iehulem, says the Astoriau. Ho lived like h hermit. A beautiful dog which accom panied the btrunger into the woods; died about five years ago, and the fashionable clothes which the recliifca wore when he made his tvtrtat we're replaced by coarsegfabrics and strong conntry shoes. Twice each your the hermit was visited by a woman of grace ful form and eusy manners, who always dressed in black and was thickly veiled. No ou knew who this woman was or whence she came. She remained with tho hcrmil about an hour, and for three or four days after her departure the recluse remained within his cubiu. When at last he appeared he locked much sadder and more sged than before. Last Tuesday nioruiug the cabin was fonnd in ashes. The hermit was not to be found. His mysti-rious visitor called on him about a week ago. He may have burned with the cabin, but iheru is no trace of him to be found. ' A1 Ciir.on Epiiupti.

Farm, Field and Stockman. - We are glad to ace that some sellers of poultry are discussing among themselves why some birds are delicate in flavor, juicy and fleshy, while others are strong, or else insipid, with little muscle, nlthough, per haps, overloaded wiih fat. The same is found in eggs. The reason is slmfilo. Fowls fed upon variety of food and kept in clean quarters will have good tk"h, and the eggs will be delicately Hsvorod, while those that hare to get their living from garbage ami the mnnuro pile will be soft, th flesh will de cay quickly, and the eggs will be strong in taste aud disgusting. ' It is well known that birds especially enr ry the evidence of thuii lyed in their flesh. All animals do mure or less. , The meat of distillery-fed cattle is nr.t fit for food. Hogs fed ou garbago aud city swill carry flesh dis gusting, and often dangerous to cut. - In relation to biids, the advantage of par ticular foods we need only refer to Hie fact that water fowls feeding on fish are unfit for food. The canvas back duck gets its delica cy of flesh from Ihe wild celery it feeds on. The grouse of Pennsylvania is sought by epicures far und wide, from the flavor it ac quires from the mountain berries ' the birds ft.d on. Thus we will find that the flesh of not only birds but animals is influenced by what they eut. Cattle und sheep eat oulv of clean food, grass, hay and grain, The hog is also cleanly in his feeding if allowed so to be, The same is trne o fowls, although they are what are called omniverons feeders. Nevertheless, like swine, (bey will eut the most disgusting subslaucea if forced to do so. It is within the bounds of rensou that the man who feeds poultry specially and cares for them properly other v?aya, onco the rep utation is made, uiuy get enough more for his fowls and eggs to more than pay him for tho extra care and tronble. ' Salmon Fitliln;. The Portland News has the following in regard to salmon fishing on the Columbia river: There is quite a difference between salmon catching now at tl for cannery I Mats and $1.25 for outside boats, and what it was fourteen years ago, said John T. Flinn, tho real estate dealer, recently. "At that time I was boat puller for Win Barry, who is now Astoria's chief Of police, aud we llshed for the noble Chinook salmon in tho lower Co lumbia. The price paid for salmon then to cannery boats was Wt cents apiece and for outside boats 25 cents. The cnlcnlution was that one-third should go to the cannery which furnished the boat. The outfit fur nished is worth about f 1,000. The nets eout (i00 and the boats $100 apiece. The net only . last one season, while a bout will, with repairs, last for ten years. The Usher men' used' to make big wages then. The a vera go was 2J5 fish a day. The boat would be filled so that it could hold no more and a number would be fastened to a line and towed to the canneries. We used to average $400 a mouth then. Salmon fishing was it good business then. Now the fishermen count themselves in big luck if they catch seven or eight hsU m a day. iloly U-ho, how the business has changed !" Farming for Fun.
