never before encountered after this
time of year the Rogue River Valley
will have bumper crops along all
lines, is the opinion of all observ

It much more valuable to the fruit
crop, and that the amount of avail
able moisture in the ground is much
greater than usual this time of year
With the almost total failure of
crops from drought in many portions
of California, and the heavy flood
and tornado losses in the middle west
it looks as if there was bound to be
a big influx of settlers into Oregon
the coming year and the Rogue Riv
er Valley should be alert to secure
its share and to make them all boost

things to truthfully say about the
Rogue River Valley and inflation of

TEA AS A BEVERAGE.
K U 8ald to Enrich a Parson
Morally and Physically.
Did you know tbat tea drinking is a
splendid aid to oue'a morals? At least
that is the opinion of an English scien
tist who not long ago compiled a learn
ed treatise to show the beneficial ef
fects of tea drinking from a spiritual,
physical and moral standpoint
A meal In the morning, he says, with
tea as the beverage will enable a man
to pursue bia day's work with facul
ties unclouded, temper unruffled and a
generally amiable state of nerves. Be

It vanishes dreams, increases the
memory and prevents sleeplessness. It
has been observed that it has contribu
ted more to the sobriety of the Chinese
than the severest laws, the most elo
quent harangues and the best treatise
But, in addition to all this, be claims
for tea a strengthening effect on moral

generous cupful of ten, moderately

successfully the manifold temptations
that assail blin in the business and so

The friends of Mrs. Mary Cryder

be held at the Presbyterian church
at Central Point, but the hour can
not be set until the funeral party
arrives from the north.

TONGUES OF BIRDS.
That of the Humming Bird Is About
the Most Curious of All,
A German naturalist bas gathered
soma curious data with reference to
the tongues of birds. As be points
out, many persons suppose tbat wood
peckers use their sharp pointed tongues
as darts with which to transfix their
prey. It is true that the woodpecker,
like the bumming bird, can dart out
its tongue with extraordinary rapidity
and that its mouth is furnished with
an elaborate mechanism for this pur
pose, yet investigation shows that the
object of their swift motion Is only to
catch the prey, not to pierce it For
the purpose of holding, the captured
victim the woodpecker's tongue Is fur
nished with a sticky secretion.
Inasmuch as it possesses the power
of imitating speech, it is not surprising
to learn that the parrot's tongue re
sembles that of man more closely than
any other bird's tongue does. It is not
because the parrot is more intelligent
than many other birds, but because its
tongue is better suited for articulation
than theirs tbat it is able to amuse us
with its mimicry.
In some respects the bumming bird's
tongue is the most remarkable of all.
It is double nearly from end to end,
so that the little creature' is able to
grasp its insect prey very rfibch as if
Its mouth were furnished with a pair
of Augers. Harper's Weekly.'
CORK TREE BARK.
If Carefully Removed a New 8upply
' Grows In a Few Years.
As most people know, cork is the
outer bark of an oak. This tree, known
to the botanists as Quercus suber. is
an evergreen, native to the Mediter
ranean region, and is cultivated in
France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Moroc
co. Tunis and Algiers. If carefully
done removing the bark does not in
jure the tree, and a new supply may
be obtained from the same specimen
after a few years.
We are so ti miliar with the use of
we seldom realize its manifold other
uses, though its connection with bot
tles dates back only about BOO years.
We so commonly speak of the stopper
of a bottle as a cork that we see no
incongruity in the expression "a rub
ber cork." -
Just as our word for stopper has
been derived from the word cork, bo
cork Itself has probably been derived
from the Spanish corcbo, which in
turn is derived from the Latin cortex,
meaning rind. Some authors, however,
would derive cork from quercus, the
generic name of all oaks.
Cork is present in the bark of all
trees, though in quantities too small to
make it useful in the many ways in
which cork from the cork oak is em
ployed. The cork barked elm, the
sweet gum and a few others have
strongly developed cork.
The Modern Cinderella.
One day the tencher during recess
told the children the story of Cindrella.
The next day, to test their memory,
she asked them:
"Why did Cinderella have to leave
the ball promptly at 12?"

she could catch the last car." St Louis
