AQENOY PLAIN PIOK-UPS.
Clirlfltmns lma come and gone and
with It many Joya and Bnrrowa,
Alf Turkey recently made a business
trip to tho counlj Beat. Don't know
wliotlior ho got the necesmry docu
ments or not. V
Howard Ulackerby was bulohorlng'
hogs one day hint week and U now;
fcahtliig on backbone sausage, eto.
Christmas was greatly enlivened on
the PI u I n by a beautiful mantle of
snow covering Its surface.
The literary entertainment given at
the school bouse by Andrew Larson,
Oecambcr 22, was well attended con
slderlng the Inclement weatht'r. The
program was very Interesting. A prize
wno offered by the teacher to the
scholar who delivered the bestdecla'
allon. Miss Lei a Gard captured Ihp
Claude Ramsey, Alf Parkey and sev
eral others from this part of the Plain
took In tho masquerade ball at Madras
Friday night. Also the Christmas
tree and literary Saturday night. They
report a rousing good time.
Howard Blackerby and wife were re
cent visitors of W. II. ltamey and
Jack rabbits are almost as scarce on
the -Plain as water and public roads.
Stanley Qrewoll, of Trout Creek, was
out on his homestead Monday and
stopped over night.
John Evic left for Juniper Flat a few
days ago to be absent several days.
Is it not about time that a dozen or
so ranchers on the Plain get togethor
and make the necessary arrangements
and have a well drilled, at some favor
able polut? If the project should fail
it would hardly brako any of us, and
we would know what to depend on in
the future. If It proved a success it
would be a matter of great convenience
to those concerned and give each of us
homo idea as. to what we would havr
to ooutend with and the depth we
would probably have to go to get
water on our indiviJual homesteads.
MULOH YOUB TEEE8.
Mulching of trees and shrubbery
serves several good purposes. It con
serves molsturo about the roots,
thereby promoting their growth. It
keeps the tree or shrub dormant in
spring, thuB Insuring a crop of fruil
by preventing loo early blooming. H
saves a vast amount of hand culttva
tlotj. But, best of nil, It preventp
gophers from gnawing off the roots.
Did you ever notice that gophers will
not work about nn old straw stack or
chip yard? Therefore use strnw, ohafl
or very strawy manure or chip man
ure. Place about the roots of trees, on
top of ground, to depth of 8 -to 12
Inches and 6 to 8 feet across. Make
pile dialling toward troe. Lenve mulch
about them permanently, If obliged
to ubo fresh stublo manuro do not
place It ngnlnst tho body of treee. as il
is liable to burn bark, especially frull
trees. Small fruits return handsome
profits treated in this way.
Strawberries covered to a depth of 2
inches with clean straw or wild hay
anything free from weed seeds after
ground la frozen nnd same left upon
theui until growth starts lu spring:
then Jual uncover crowns of plants,
leaving mulch to keep ground moist
and berries cloan. Tryltaud see how
much hard labor It will savo uud how
little of Irrigation you need. In fact,
orchards and small fruits can be utv
ce8sfully growu without irrigation If
proporly mulched and cultivated.
Now is tho time to apply tho muloh.
