The Italian sculptor. O. Clsarlello,
,who has been la prison at Naples for
jtha last eighteen; months, has recently
(been allowed to practice his art In the
I prison. The Idea was sur tested to him
iby a postal card sent to him by a friend,
with a portrait of the Crown Prince of
'Italy on It
1 He sketched a roup showing the king
and oueen and the bov and made appli
cation for modelling clay and tools and
for nermlMion to have a rhiM
i years to visit htm dully to srrve as a
model for Prince Humbert. The tools
and clay ware furnlahed, but the child
model was refused.
Clsaripllo went on "with the work and
he has 3 ii at finished It Fellow pris
oners occasionally roed for the idnii
riarures. but be had no material for the
child except the postal card.
. Notwithstanding this, tbs work It
raid to have merit The government
i a ordered ho model to be -cast in
Itohm nni the finished work Is to be

TUlamook Supplies Are Tory Small.
r-heeae aunnllea at Tillamook are Bald
to be the smsllsst ever noted there at

snd this In a measure accounts for the
many recent advances in the prtca mere
Tho greater northern demand at this
time la also aiding tho advance here,
but one of tho principal causes of tha
higher prices Is the fact that but llttls
cheese has been purchased by local par
ties becauae of tho . anormoua values
asked. '.
Practically all sales or cur croam
ery butter were made today at 11 Ho a

Albany, Or, Aug. 7. One of tha beat
ytelda of wheat reported for tha present
year la that of a two and one half-acre
tract on tho farm of John Lennox, about
six miles esst of Albany. Using a new
vsrlety of wheat purchased In Canada,
called the New Abundance, he threshed
118 bushels from the small tract or at
the rate of 41 buabela machine measure,
or to bushel by weight - Alongside of
this he haa a field of Golden Chaff
which yielded 11 bushels to the acre.
Mr. Lennox believes that he haa the
light variety of wheat for this section
and with Introduction of new seed feels
that the valley yields can be doubled and
mada to bring forth yields equal to
those of early days. It has been 'the
opinion long held by many that the fields
of this section are run out and Incapa

A series of tests made recently of

waa ahown that the long vacuum tubes
were the most sstisfsctory and the

thle comparatively new method are

The National Agricultural society' of
France has recently had Its attention
directed to a new process of preserving
fruit which hss been In use In England
for some little time snd found to be
very satisfactory. The fruits ars
plunged into cold water containing I
per cent of a 40-per-cent solution of
formaldehyde, and after 10 minutes' Im
mersion they srs arranged on screens,
where they drain and dry. In the caae
of tha soft-pulped fruits of which ths
whole Is eaten. Ilka grapes, cherries,
plume, stc, they srs dipped for five
minutes In pure water on taking' them
from the formolated solution before
putting them to dry. But In ease of
hard-pulped fruit which are pared before
eating, like apples snd pears, this sec
ond washing la not neceeaarr. The
fnrmlo aldehyde disappears .almost
completely, and the 48 per eent formal
dehyde, the antiseptic power of which
la well known, destroys fungi, bacteria
and other micro-organisms on the sur
face of the frulte, which are the agents
of putrefaction and decay. -
