PORTLAND, OREGON j,
In eorno pnrts "of' tho country tele
phones nro becoming very common. It
seems that once a telephone) Is estab
lished In tho family It 1b thero to stay.
Othor sections of the country are very
much behind tho times In this respect,
probably becauso Ho ono has gone
ahead with tho preliminary arrange
ments. A farm tolophono Is not only a great
luxury, but It (s fast becoming an ab
solute necessity. With tho addition of
moro business to tho farm every year
and tho scarcity of labor anything that
Haves steps Is worth money. When
you get accustomed to doing business
over tho telephono you realize Its
A short tlmo ago I heard a farmer
ordor 100. bushels of seed oats by
phono from another farmer about ten
miles away. Ho had seen a sample
at tho fair last fall and mado the ne
gotiations accordingly. Tho business
was transacted In about flvo minutes
whllo the farmer was sitting at his
desk after reading his morning mall
left at the box by the rural delivery
man. It would havo taken him all
day to get his mall and drivo to the
other farmer and buy his seed oats.
Dut thero Is a social aide to farm
llfo that Is fostered by the telephone.
It often happens that a woman Is left
nlono for tho day and .she can easily
mako arrangements to havo a neigh
bor call and spend the tlmo pleasant
ly, instead of feeling lonely. Then It
is bo easy to make social arrangements
for evenings or to meet friends as oc
Th,ero aro always people In a neigh
borhood who are publlc-aplritcd
enough to go ahead with the necessary
arrangements to establish a telephone
service. Others should encourage them
promptly by subscribing to the fund
required. Everybody Is benefited, be
causo tho arrangement is mutual in
tho neighborhood. Agricultural
A Trnp Neat,
The accompanying plan of trap ne3t
is quite almple and can bo ma'do from
a box of suitable size, 'it should be
12 or li inches square by 20 or 24
inches long. Tho slats should bo nailed
to a cros8plece about one-quarter the
distance from tho top. A couple of
nails are driven through tho box and
Into tho crossplece to swing on. Half
way back, on the InBlde. a narrow
ploco of board Is nailed, back of which
tho nest Is mado.
To set tho trap simply raise tho
slats Inward from tho bottom 8 or 9
inches high and placo a small stick
under ono of tho slats. As tho hen
enters the door Is raised off tho stick,
which falls to tho floor. There should
be about live slatB for a box 12 or 14
Inches In width, slats closo against

In tho way of treatment tho United
elates Uureau of Animal fndustryhas
discovered a vaccino which saves
about 80-odd per cent after cholera np
.pears in a herd, and a larger per cent
if vaccinated before tho disease is ln
troduced. Tlmo will demonstrate tho
practicability of this mothod. The
bacteriology department of the Kansas
Stato Agricultural College 1ft also
working along these lines, but Is not
yet ready to announce anything but
When symptoms of cholera appear
In a herd, It is wise to dip the whole
herd, disinfect tholr quarters thor
oughly, give them a slight chango in
feed, and add to this about flvo drops
of tincture of prickly ash for each
hundred pounds of hog once or twice a
day. The old remedy of wood ashes
and salt Is good In many instances. A
little powdered sulphato of copper,
dried sulphate of Iron or charcoal
given dally when the animals are not
perfectly healthy frequently does much
good. After all, the old adage, an
ounco of prevention Is worth a pound
of cure, holds good hero.
SnvcA the FertllUcr.
Fertilizer Is expensive. By the old
method of distributing It there was
usually enough waBted to represent n
pretty penny. Then came
along a Virginia man and
Invented the hand fer
tilizer dropper. This de
vice consists of an odd
shaped bucket, running
to a point at the bottom
and having a small open
ing there, through which
tho content filters. A
hineed valve, operated by
n rod that leads to tho handlo of the
bucket, controls the flow, Tho top of
the rod Is connected to a crossbar,
which runs under tho handlo of the
buckot. This bar is in close reach,
and, when resting on the top of the
bucket the valve Is open. To close the
valve the operator merely extends a
flnger and lifts the bar, thus shutting
off the fertilizer. The valve flares at
the bottom, spreading tho fertilizer in
a broad, fine stream. For small farms,
gardens and lawns this device Is of
great convenience, and is a money
saver. Water for tho Clilcka.
Take an ordinary baking ,pan and
have tho tinsmith rivet on an "ear1
on ono "jlde for nailing to a tree.
Have him also make' a hole- in the
bottom In ono corner, that tho water
can be let out every day and tho pan
be kept clean. Nail tho pan to a tree
about twelve Inches from the ground,
bo the chicks can drink without get
ting Into it with their feet. The birds
will soon : discover that it is a flne
place from which to get a drink on
hot days. Sometimes they find, too,
that It Is a convenient place for a
bath, and this of course makes tho
water dirty. But It Is not much trou
ble to refill the pan with clean water,
and this Bhould be done two or three
times a day. Chickens and birds re
quire a grea't deal of water, and they
often suffer for lack of It Don't neg
