NorlhwMt Fruitgrowers' Aaiurlatlon In
Annual Convention.
Portland, Or., Nov. 5. Tlie follow
ing announcement has been sent nut by
Miller Freeman, secretary of the
Northwest Fruitgrowers' Association,
whose headquarters are in Seattle:
The fifth annual convention of the

continuing for three daya.
Tliii convention promises to be the
moat largely attended and the most
productive of results of auv in the his

important topics are to be taken up and
discussal, and the issues will be ably
bundled by tlie leading horticulturists
of the Northwest. Every fruit-produo-ing
district of imjiortance will bo repre
sented by progressive, widS-awake del
egates. The Northwest Fruitgrowers' Associ
ation is conducted along most practical
lines. Ita purpose is the co-operation
of the horticulturists in Oregon, Wash
ington, Idaho and British Columbia,
for promoting and stimulating tho de
velopment of fruit interests and enootir
siring proper methods of handling and
marketing the products of the orchard.
Arrangements aro already well under
way for the accommodation at apecial
rates of a large number of visiting
fruitgrowers while in attendance at
the convention at Portland. A com
mittee of leading citizens, composed of
II. E. Doech, L. M. Spiegel. II. M.

Cabbage in Winter.
The old plan of burying, or putting
don assert '.hat Mediterranean ports are cubage In trenches during winter, or
outbidding England for Russian wheat.
The French chamber of deputies has
been petitioned to reduce the import
duty on wheat, and some action in this
direction will probably be taken sooner
or later, although not necessarily at
present, Ilus-ian advices, although al
ways unreliable and largely mythical,
are extremely bullish and must neces
sarily have some foundation on fact.
Tho Argentine crop is still an unknown
quantity. Reports are conflicting.
Diought conditions have prevailed.
LoctiHts have caused some damage, and
in tlie absence of reliable reports it can
for winter use, has become obsolete,
and a more simple and easy plan baa
been adopted. Where cabbage Is grown
on a large scale for shipping purposes,
the best plan Is to lift the cabbage and
stack them two tiers deep aud as close
ly as they can be placed In an orchard,
or wood If convenient, and cover with
leaves to the depth of two or three
Inches, the leaves to be kept In place
by a slight covering of earth, says
American Gardening. In this way the
bends will keep perfectly sound all
winter, and they can be easily taken
up m wanted tor shipping, for ram'

In the arrangement of the barnyard
for the comfort of stock the next point
Is how to preserve the manure from
loss by rains, heat, cold, etc. The only
remedy la a covered barnyard, but that
Is expensive, though fanners would
find that the saving of food, better pro
tection to stock In summer and winter,
and the saving of manure would repay
any outlay In thnt respect, as any kind
of roof that would turn water from tho
barnyard would answer the purpose.
Waehlnic Butter.
In washing butter either extreme Is
to be avoided. To wasb It even In
granular form, until the water runs
off clear, will give us a butter that will
not decay or turn strong so soon as that
not washed so thoroughly, but It
washes out much of the flavor. On the
ther baud, while the flavor Is enhanced
by not washing, the buttermilk left lu
after working will tend to putrefac
tion; for, aa we all know, there Is noth
ing which more quickly spoils and be
comes lll-snielllng than buttermilk. To
work out all the buttermilk breaks the
grain, makes the butter salvy. Of
course, we do-not want to do this, so
we will wash It in granular form

rotators Under Ptraw.
An Indiana farmer who has been
quite successful lu growing xtntocs
explains bis method of doing It some
thing like the following: lie breaks up
bis ground deep and works Int3 tho
soil well-rotted comtiost. The surface
Is mnde level aud smooth and the pota
toes are dropped on top of the anil In
straight lines. The whole Is then cov
ered with six to eight Inches of Kiniv.
During the season ashes are liberally
sprinkled over them twice; the result
la tubers of the finest kind. We have
no doubt whatever of the success of
such a plan aud of the production of
flue tubers, but we venture to suggest
that the piece waa not large In extent.
When potatoes are grown by acres, any
thoughtful farmer can see that tho
amount of straw required would be Im
mense. No doubt for garden puriHises,
where smooth tubers are desired, this
course would give them, but no better
thau to plant furrows, covering with n
layer of straw and then of earth which
would require very much lesa straw.
The matter of expense sometimes gov

Onions from Heed.
To grow onions from seed the prac
tlee now Is to sow the seed In IioiImhIs
or cold frames In wlnCr, In order to
get sets, which saves he cost of seta.
Maggots do not Injure the onions
grown from seta as seriously as they do
from seeds. A Oy deposits eggs on the
sides of the young shoota, the maggots
from the eggs going down Into the
bulbs and destroying them. When wis
aro used they grow rapidly arid get
ahead of the maggot. HcshI ran to
ho wo almost any time, the seta can tie
trauspiilutcd In the spring. After tho
seeds have started the young onions
should not lie kept too warm, aa It Is
not necessary for the sets to be of
large size.
That the world Is coming to an end sud

Harvesting Weedy Potatoes.
Thnt sins of neglect will follow a man
until he Is duly punished Is never more
conclusively proven thatfwhen the neg
lected potato field comes to be harvest
ed. Not only la the crop greatly les
sened, but the labor of harvesting has
been Increased. As a matter of fact,
the farmer who can and does keep his
potatoes free from weeds saves lalior
by the operation. Sooner or Inter the
weeds have to be uprooted. It costs
less to do this while they are small. If
jone then, the yield of marketable
tubers Is so much Increased, aud tb ex
pense of harvesting Is decreased so,
that It really costs less to harvest a large
crop kept free from weeds than to har
vest a crop failure made so because
overrun with weeds.

Farm Notes.
Those who are congratulating tho
farmers on the higher price for whent
have overlooked the fact that potatoes
are bringing three times as much ns
they did two years ago, and the potato
crop Is no small one In this country.
The quality and also of fruit on old
bushes Is much Improved by severo
nruuing or thinning of fruit, and this
applies equally well to all tree fruits.
The demand of the times Is for quality
In everything, rather than quastlty,

To destroy weeds la pavements and
garden walks make a strong brine with
salt and boiling water. Apply with a
watering can. A moderate quantity of
salt stimulates the growth of all vegeta
tion; It Is, therefore, a mistake to sup
pose that a sprinkling of salt will ex
terminate weeds.
The best way to treat clover In the

Reasons Why Mr. Plnlcham
tat Mora Buooosaful Than

A woman Is tick) some disease) peon
liar to her sex la fast developing lu her
system. Bhe goes to her family physi
cian and tells him a story, but not As
whole story.
(the holds some thin if back, loses her
head, becomes agltaU'd, forget what
aha wants to say, and finally conceals
what she ought to have told, and thua
completely mystifies the doctor.
Ia it any wonder, therefore, that the
doctor fails to cure the disease 6tlll,
we cannot blame the woman, for It la
very embarrassing to detail soma of
the symptoms of her suffering, even to
her family physician.
It waa for this reason that years
ago Mrs. Plnkbam, at Lynn, Mass.,
determined to step In and help her
acx. Having had considerable as
pcrlenco in treating female ills with
her Vegetable Compound, ah encour
aged the women of America to writ
to ber for advice In regard to their
complaints, and, being a woman, it
waa easy for ber ailing sisters to pour
Into her ears every detail ol their suf
fering. Over one hundred thousand
women were successfully treated by
Mrs. IMnkham last year. Buch are tM
grand results of her ezperlenoa.
There are 71,000 more women than
men in the state of Massachusetts, and
