Last Friday and Saturday were
the two busiest days Dallas has
seen in a year.. The town was full
of people and most of them had
money, which has been an unusual
thing for months past. About
every tenth man had a if 20 gold
piece that he wanted changed.
The bank and all the stores ran
out of change.
R. C. Craven is buck from a four
months busiuess trip to his old
Missouri home. He says that
times are decidedly prorjierous
there aud that they have not had
so big a corn crop before for years.
The yield ranges from forty to
seventy bushels per acre. Nearly
all of it will be fed to cattle and
hogs at home. The farmers are
going to the city stock yards and
buying half fatted grassfed animals
to consume their corn. Stock
raising is the .great business and
money is continually changing
hands in all directions.

We are indebted to the Oregon
Agriculturist for the following in
teresting article on spraying:
One of the essential things
necessary to tbe successful orchard
ist is spraying. Take time enough
to do the work thoroughly and
regularly. A writer in tbe Spring
field (Ohio) Farm News, on this
nds have spread all over the
countrv and, unless checked, de
stroy t he fruits of apple, peach, pear
plum and cherry trees and of
vines and berry bushes. These
diseases can be checked, and their
effects destroyed, bj- thorough
spraying. This has been proved
Iwyond a doubt, and the only
question now is how to do the
work in the most thorough manner.
I believe we have not been in the
habit of beginning soon enough in
this matter. No doubt the scab,
blight and other forms of fungous
disease begin to develop very early
in the season, and are at work
long before they made any visible
signs. It is my opinion, and my
experience last year confirms me
in holding it, that the best time to
begin is before there is any sign of
disease about the trees. I would
begin before the trees start into
growth in tire spring, because then
I can use a much stronger solution
without injuring the trees. After
the leaves have started Bordeaux
mixture of tbe standard strength
is as strong as can be used without
ujuring the foliage, but if the
trees are sprayed as soon as warm
weather comes a solution of copper
sulphate (blue vitriol) can be used
as strong as one pound to 25 or 30
gallons of water. This copper
sulphate is very cheap now, and
one can afford to use it liberally
and the trees and ground should be
pretty well drenched with them,
and the form oi sprayer should be
such as will throw a stream
against the body and branches of
the trees with sufficient force to
penetrate the crevices in tbe bark
and wet the whole surface. If this
is done millions of spores that are
only waiting for favorable condi
tions to spring into life and growth
will be killed and much after work
will be saved.
Later in the season the nozzle
of the sprayer should be one that
produces a fine mist, as it is not
well to get too much of the solu
tion on the leaves. The object
should be to cover the whole sur
face of the trees, but as lightly as

with a load of wheat, and left his
team standing in fi-ont of hi
mother's house w hile ke went in
after melons to bring over to mar

wagon, and when Clyde returned
to his team the whole outfit had
gone down the grade, over the bank
and into the river. The water
there was twelve or thirteen feet
deep, and byquick work, one of
the horses was saved. The other.
a fine animal, was drowned. The
wagon, the load of wheat and tht

A new variety of pine has been
found in tbe Cow Creek canyon
southern Uregon. ihe appear
ance of the tree is very ornamental,
on account of its foliage, the leaves
being from a foot to 15 inches in
length, and the cones are of im
mense size. They are not quite so
long as the cones of the sugar pine,
but much larger around, and
rough. The tree promises to be of
commercial value, as it abounds
in pitch, which has a strong
orange odor, and, it is probable,
will yield much turpentine. The
wood is very strong, tough and
