A WORTHY SUCCESSOR.
Something Hew Under
All Doctors have tried to cuie
catarrh by the use of powders, acid
gases, inhalers and drugs in paste
form. Their powders dry up the
mucuous membranes causing them
to crack open and bleed. The pow
erful acids used in the Inhalers have
entirely eaten away the same mem
branes that their matters nave aim
ed to cure, while pastes and oint
ments cannot reach the disease. An
old and experienced practitioner
who has for many years made a close
study and ppee.ialty of the treatment
of catarrh, has at last perfected a
treatment which when faithfully
used, not only relieves at once, but
permanently cures catarrh, by re
moving the cause, stopping the dis
charges and curing all inflammation.

THE HUSSY SOUTH.
We publish -elsewhere today the
announcement ol the Sunny South,
the great weekly literary periodical
of the Southern States. Published
in Atlanta, Georgia, in the heart of
the great South, it bears upon it the
impress of its birthplace and environ
ment. For more than twenty-five
years the. Sunny South has been a
recognized factor in the field of
Southern literature. - It was estab
lished more than a quarter of a cen
tury ago as a Southern story paper
and was published for a long time as
a weekly and then as a monthly.
About one year ago the paper
passed under new management, and
less than a year it has Jumped from
a circulation of 12,000 to nearly 60,-
000. The first thing the new man.
agement did was to make it a week'
ly publication and to reduce the
price to fifty cents ' per year less
than one cent an issue and then to
infuse into its columns ail the enter
prise and literary ability that moaey
could command or determination se
cure. In less than a year this re
markable Southern literary paper
has become national in character and
it now has about as many subscribers
north of Mason and Dixon's line as
it has in the South. Its columns
abound in the best current literature
of characteristic Southern flavor, and
no literary periodical published any
where in the country has succeeded
in bringing together as many South
ern writers of note as has been done
by the Sunny South.
A striking feature of the Sunny
South's development is Its introduc
tion during the past year of many
new story writers who will be heard

from iu the wider field of the world's
literature. Iu almost every South
era state new literary talent has
been developed to such an exteut as
to put 'the whole country to talking
about the Sunny South. A few
months ago the Sunny South ottered
very handsome prizes for a scries of
the best short stories by Southern
writer, and more than five hundred
responses were received. Some of
the stories then published in the
Sunny South have been reproduced
the world over. Others are now he-
Incr published by it from week to
The fact that the price of this
splendid weekly periodical Is only
fifty cents a year has had a wonder
ful effect in giving it an extensive
field for the development of its plans
aud purposes. Perhaps no literary
periodical ever established has made
such rapid strides as the Sunny South
in less than a year.
Mrs. Mary E. Bryan, whose name
has long been associated with the
Sunny South, has been engaged to
take full charge ot the woman's de

The literary flavor of the Sunny
South will be far above the ordinary
story paper and an examination of
oua copy, will show clearly and plain
ly lo all its scope in its great special
field. Some of the most pro nineut
of the world's writers have been list
ed for special stories for Ihe Sunny
South during the current year. It Is
a pleasure to know that the South
has at last secured a literary paper of
which the whole country is proud.
The Sunny South's growing circu
lation throughout Ihe Union, and in
all parts ot It alike, Is an indication
of its wide-spread field. Its fresh,
crisp editorials, serlul stories from
authors of the widest note and grow
ing fame and Interesting short stories
from every quarter make it accept
able everywhere. It is cot a news

exclusively to the field of literature.

never seen a copy of it, send today

About three years ago Hun. Ben
ton Klllen, a regent of the State Ag
ricultural College, at Corvaliis, whs
at a fish cannery at Alaska, He had
to slay at the cannery because it was
where the steamers touched- return
ing to southern ports, but the IhihIs
tarry but a few minute!!, and Intend
ing passengers must be ready to
step aboard. The sf comer Mr. Kill
en expected to bring him home was
due and might come at any hour, or
might delay twenty hours, but he
had to watch. As a matter of fact,
It was delayed, and he had much
time for examining bis surround
ings, but there was nothing to etc
eicept the monotonous canning of
fish. Mr. Klllen, after a time, began
to think. FIrni, of the time when
fish were not canned, hut salted and
dried. Then the bene fits of canning
fish; superiority over salt fish. He
then naturally took the canning of
other substances, fruit and vegetables.
Then how the canned products
served as an Improved food con
sumed out of season by man, and
only man. But why not preserve
food for cattle? Tbe thought aroused
the regent. The canning process be
fore him developed Interest. Every
manipulation was scrutinized. He
saw that the only secret was lo kill
germs and prevent new ones from
eel tins; aense to tha treated nub-
stance. He revolved the mailer and
when he stepped on tho dock at
Portland, he loitered not, hut liusthsj
t the Experiment Station, at Cor
Vdllis. During the fall of 10(10, act
ing on Mr. Kilieu's suggestion, the
chemirit put up ensilage in small
cans, in glans ars, subjected them to
heat and sealed them. After time
months, they were opened and the
contents examined, The cornfodder
sweet. The problem was solved as
far as small package were concerned.
The law of canning is universal for
all sutatauccs. Only nieehanlcal
hindrances would prevent long for
age from being saved for the winter
feeds of Ihe stock. Therefore it whs
determined f carry the tost still
further. Last summer several silos
12 feet high and & feet, in diameter
were built of two-inch matched fir
lumber. The staves are four or five
iuches wide. These were filled with
green corn. The further account of
the experiment is well told by the
Corvaliis Times, which is repro
After the silos had been filled,
steam was introduced through a pli
and I ho whole contents was heati d
to a temperature of 212 degrees. The
purpose of tho heating was to kill, if
possible, the acetic acid germ9, and
prevent the silagu from souring
The results obtained so far, are of
the most satisfactory character. The
The silage came out when opened a
few weeks ago as bright and green
as when it was put in. Apparently
no change whatever had taken
place. Instead of being sour and
discolored as is usual with silage, it
looked exactly like it did when cut
in the corn field. Stock to which it
was fed left all other kinds of feed to
eat It. Tiie chemical analysis that
has been made gives an acetic acid
content of but three-tenths of one pur
cent. As the corn contained a sour
ness of ooe-tonth of ono per cent
when it went In, a development of
two-tenths of one percent bus inter
vened sluce iu weut into the alio.
The fine result Is tiest understood,
when compared with corn silage put
up in the regular way last year, in
which tho acid content ran from 1.08
to over two per cent.
The discovery is not yet
worked out. Several prolili mu arise
in connection with it. The silo in
which it was kept was only five feet
in diameter. A sinirlH column of
steam was elfis-tlvo in healing ull
pttrts of It, but the question arises
will it be equally tloetivo with a
silo ton or twfeivo ftiet in diameter,
and if not, how can Mio utcum bo ap
lliod so us lo lu'Ht every portion of
tho largor silos. Also sluco such
hI I os mo-it Ik) Hi'veral times filled alter
settling down, in what way and
when can the steam bo applied ho as
to obviate the difficulty, and secure
tho ret;u!t3 possible In tho smaller
silos. Also cati tho principle bo ex
tended with equal success to clover,
peas, vetches and alfalfa? To settle
these and other similar points, three
of tho larger silos will bo called into
use 011 the steam plan next year.
There Is tolerable certainty that
the experiment at tho col logo with
reference to ute of heat for saving
silage from aeidity will yield favor
able results. The progress already
made foreshadows the ultimate suc
cess of tho experiment. The result,
coming as It doe at a time when
the Willamette Valley is in the
transition sfug from giain forming
to diversified azricuUurc, will lo of
incalculable value. At tho station
