It Is well known that Prof. L. H.
Bailey, ol Cornell university, has been
working for three years past on an ex
tensive publication to be known as The
American Cyclopedia ol Agriculture.
This is to be published In several vol-
I umes and it is expected that it w ill be
; accepted by the reading public aa the
standard reference work on rural affairs,
i It haa been many years since such a
i work has been attempted and nothing
I of such an extensive nature has ever
| been undertaken before in America.
Professor Bailey has called to his aid
the beat known writers on agriculture
throughout the entire country, who
have written up the various subjects on
which they were recognized as authori
ties. The entire work may be referred
to as the combined efforts of the agri
cultural specialists of Amerioa aud
when published w ill no doubt find a
place in the library of most progressive
It is significant that when it came to
the very important subject of wheat
that Professor Bailey recognized the
great Northwest and its place as one of
the leading wheat producing regions by
calling on Professor E. E . Elliott, head
of the Agricutlural department at the
State college of Washington, to prepare
this most important article. This has
been done by Prof. Elliott and the mat
ter is now in the hands of the publish
ers. The article in question consists of
about ten thousand words, with numer
ous Illustrations, and would be suffi
cient in itself to make quite a book If

entire subject of wheat production in
America and at the same time atten
tion is particularly called to the great
regions of the Northwest where the pro
duction and quality of this cereal have
placed it in the f.refront. Our wheat
growers ate to be congratulated In the
fact that the article in question has
been prepared by cne so familiar with
the Bubject and who is doing so much
to advance the industry tbroug the
work being done by his department at

various cereal stations established in
the state as well as through the wheat

San Francisco, Aug. 27.— President
Henry T. Scott, of the Pacific Tele
phone 4 Telepraph company, was re
called to the stand when the Glass
bribery case was resumed yesterday.
Under questioning by Assistant Dis
trict Attorney Honey, Mr. Scott testi-
efid that prior to the earthquake and
fire of 1906 F. A. Pickernel), assistant
to the president of the American Bell
Telephone company, took no active
hand in the conduct of the Pacific
States corporation, but immediately
thereafter be set about the formation
of plans for rebuilding the wiecked
plant. The purpose of this testimony
was, on the part of the prosecution, to
ambush any prospective defense to
shunt the bribery blame onto the
shoulders of Mr. Picernell.
Mr. Scott, answering a series of ques
tions designed to clinch in the jury’s
minds the asserted fact that General
Manager Glass was In complete con-

bribery period, said that he (Scott) be

presidency and his return trom the

none, gave no authority to Glass or

Telegraph Operators Expact
Chicago, Aug. 26.— A crisis w ill be
reached in the telegraphers’ strike
within the next few days, according to
tbe expectations of Chicago operators.
Announcement to this effect was made
today by Frank Likes, chairman of the
local strike committee, at a meeting.
Mr. Likes declined to disclose fully his
reasons for making this statement, but
from other sources it was learned that
the operators are expecting that some
sort of an offer w ill be received from
the companies within a short time.
In view of the determined stand
taken by both corporations against
dealing with the strikers collectively,
this report was viewed with skepticism
in many quarters.
It Is said that many of the strikers
would be willing to return to work up
on the promise that they be given free
use of typewriters and a moderate wage
increase. Recognition of the union, it
is declared, would not be Insisted upon.
The statement of Mr. Likes concern
ing a possible crisis was made during a
dispute concerning the advisability of
holding a strikers’ meeting tomorrow.

Tbe first inkling that dogs were used
for smuggling came a few days ago
when Officer Lane, of the Bellingham

Blaipe. The canine was loaded down
with a leather saddle in which was
found three pounds of opium and a

from and where he was going were

began to ferret out.
The officers took a coon dog with
them to the boundary line where the

they waited before another dog came

This time there were three dogs loaded

physicians to carry a cane having a
hollow bend, the top of which waa gold
pierced with holes like a pepper box.

disease supposed to be Infectious pre

on the floor to agitate the powder and
then apply It to hla nose; hence all

them with canes to their noses.
