Kow is the time when the nvcr.ige editor
-pushes the latist essay on rats into the
waste basket, has the "devil" scratch his
bead with sandpaper, while thinks of a brau
new joke on the picnic. After a half day of
.sweating and sweariug ha kicks the "devil"
into the wheucciiess of the wherefore nnd
.il.spenitely pens down something like this:
"Now It t us to the woodland, where tr es
.their verdure wrap, for spring no longer
lingers in old hurley Winter' lap. In pic
nic garb we'll ninlilo forth and sit beneath
the trees, and have our hide all chopped and
.bucked with stings of bumble-bees. W'e
gaily don our linen coals and thinseeksuckle
punts, and sit bouido the gurgling stream
while o'er us craw l the ants. We'll swallow
picnic lemonade to moisten down our grub,
which people make by soaking one cheap
leniou in a tub. The guileless lemon we
dull eat, devour the clammy, and sit on a
bowl of custard while a tear bedims our eye.
We'll tip the mustard in the jam, the pepper
in the tea, and try with all our might to
show that we are tilled with gli e. Then let us
to the picnic hie, our baskets in our hand,
sod homeward come filled up with woe, and
dust ami leaves and sand."
The Salmon Run.
The July run showed up all right yester
day and the day before nnd the can
neries presented na appearance similar to
that of the palmy (lavs of the salmon indus
try. Atone cannery a reporter saw five
boats come in, the lowest with !5 salmon
and the highest with (ill and the others Hi!,
45 and 50 respectively. Each bout lnd two
or three steel heads among the salmon, mid
some of them had a few salmon trout which
hud become entangled in the nets. The
ineu w ho are seining on Desdemonu sands
ure said to be catching great numbers of
fish. If tho preseut run should continue
through the month tho pick will be about
the same as last year and the fishermen will
have nrido more money than they have for
the past two years. Astoria Pioneer.
A Narrow Escape. F. S. Glandoii, living
tear McCoy, Polk county, nnd a hired man
Saturday hnd a most thrilling experience
and a narrow escape from death from collis
ion with the west side up-bound passenger
train. Mr. Glundon and his man sometime
after ten o'clock, hitched up the work team
to the farm wagon, and started for McCoy,
not far distant. On the way they hnd to
cross the west side in h wheat tield. It up
penrs that they dirt not notice tho approach
of the train, for when they got on the track
it was so close upon them that they had to
jump for their lives. The cowcatcher struck
the two horses and literally disemboweled
them both, and completely demolished the
'.wagon. How Mr. Glaudon nnd his sou es.
raped without injury is a mystery. It is
id that the train approached entirely with
out warning, and that when the men discov
ered it, jt wns so near that they had not time
to save the horses, which were valuable.

The following is what Judge Davis, a level
headed Illinois man, says of the local news
paper. We publish it for the benefit of some
who sponge their rending or are perpetually
growling because things are not tun to suit
them: "Every year every local paper gives
from S100 to $5000 in free lines for the sole
benefit of the vicinity in which it is located.
No other agency can or will do this. The
local editor, in proportion to his means,
does more for his town than any other ten
men, and iu all fairness, man with man he
ought to bv supported, uot because you may
happen to like him or admire his writing,
but la-cause a local paper is the tcst invest
ment a community can make. To-day the
editors of the local papers do the most work
for tho least money of any mcu on earth.
Sulisciibe for your local paper, not as chari
t v, but as an investment.

A Remedy Siifrgestoil.
J. II. Albert, of Salmi, some time sinoa
sent to tho government entomologist at
Washington a specimen of the lly which
has been so annoying to horses during the
past spring and summer, and asked him to
examine and name it, and suggest some re
lief to the suffering animals. Ho received
the following reply:
Washington, D. C, July 10, 18sS.
Mr. J. II. Albert, Salem, Oregon Dear
Sir: Iu the absence of Prof. Riley, I beg
to acknowledge the receipt of yours of June
'20th inclosing specimeu ot a lly which i bit
ing your horse. This tly prove to be a
specie of of the genu Stoiuoxys and is so
close to the Eastern species Cuh'ilrans that
I hardly care loiepurale them, especially as
your specimen was flattened and biokon,
S. Caleitruus is a well known luting fly in
tho United States, seldom entering house
except just before or during n rain, and its
close resemblance to a common house fly
has given rise to the supposition that the
house fly bite only'iu wet weather.
The species nre seldom abundant enough
to cause any injury to stock, although the
present spring wo have hud accounts from
Slurylund and New Jersey of considerable
annoyance caused to cattle by them. We
have'found that fish oil is the most admira
ble preparation to protect stock from the
bites of this lly and from the Buffalo gnat.
A reliable correspondent of ours states that
in tho absence of fish oil he uses tallow with
sufficient pine tar added to tuiike it stick the
hair together, tint not enongu 10 uinae
cause the hair to full off. Your truly,
L. O. How a iil,
A Sew Way to Destroy FcriiM.
M. Mouuier suggests tho following plan
for the eradication of ferns, which h suc
ceeded in his case. Lucerne has a voracious
appetite for potash, nnd so has the tern. He
sowed lucerne on the infested soil, and
found it o disputed the potash with the
fern, that the latter dwindled and died out.
New Zealand could well try the experiment.
And we ndd, why not Oregon? It is only
too well known by farmers throughout the
state that there are largo tracts of otherwise
fertile land that do not yield ono half of
what thoy might, if rid of the fern pest. Aud
when we consider tho fact that lucerne is
also a valuable forage-plant, and nn excel
lent subsoiler. its deep running roots bring
ing to the surface large quantities of fertiliz
ing material, not otlierwiso olitaliialile; it
would seem to admirably supply u long-felt
want. It is extensively and profitably cul
tivated in Europe and parts of our own
counlry.and turineisnf Lane couuy and oth
er purls ol the state would evidently forward
tli.tir own interests by bringing it into more
general use here.
