One resolution called upon tho fed

Tho different resolutions asked,
ono for federal guarantco of Irriga

guarantee (not federal or stato guar
antco of Interest.) A resolution nsk
cd for tho Investment of Btnto funds
In Irrigation securities and a final

which proposal was rejected subse
quently by tho voters of tho stato.
Thoro woro Htlll othor financial res

merely mako confusion worse con
founded. And this Is not to nay that any res

merely that tho congress to mnko It

In Its expressions.
Tho Irrigation congress laat yoar
wont out of Its way to advoca.to tho
repeal of tho Htnto tax of 2fi cents to
$2 por horse powor for prlvato hydro-

Another action, tho oxnet Intent of
which tho resolution does not mnko

From the vlowpolnt of tho settlor,
from n project, who wants opportun

recommendation docs not scoiu out or

OUR NATIVE THRUSHES.
We Have Eleven Speolet and All Are
Friends of the Farmer.
(Prepared by United States department ot
Altogether there ure within the limits
of the United States eleven species of
thrushes, flvo of which ure commonly
known as robins ami bluebirds. The
other six Include the Townsend soli
taire, tho wood, the veery. the gray
check, tbo ollvo back und tho hermit
Tho robins and bluebirds nest close
to houses, and even the shiest of the
other species nro content with the se
clusion of nn acre or two of woodland
or swamp. I'or this reason the thrush
es ure among the best known and most
carefully protected of native American
birds, and nt times their numbers be
come so great tlmjt It Is fcnied they
will do much harm to crops and fruit.
The Investigations of the department
of agriculture, however., show that
tbcro Is very llttlo ground for this fenr.
Ou the other band, they destroy such a
vast number of Insects eaeh ,eur that
It Is probable that without them many
crops would HttlTer oerlous damage.
Of nil Hie thrushes the robin Is prob
ably the best known. It has been fre
quently accused of destroying fruits
and berries, but It has now been ascer
tained tbnt this only occurs In regions
that are so thickly settled Unit there H
no wild fruit upon which the robin
may subsist. In sumo years the bird Is
n great pest In the olive orchards of
California, but It Is probable Hint they
are driven to the orchards because ot
the scarcity of native berries at those
times, Wbero n wild fruit Is available,
the birds seem to piofer It to the culti
Like the robin, the bluebird Is very
domestic: but. unlike the robin. It dues
not prey upon any cultivated product
or work tin; lujury wlmteu-r to Hiu
fruit grower. Diirlmx tho fruit season.
In fact, live-sixths of Its food consists
of Insects. It seems, therefore, thnt the
common practice of encouraging the
bluebird io nest neur houses by placing
convenient boxes In which It may build
Uh homo Is thoroughly Justlllcd,
The six other Hpcclcs of (he thrush
group nlso food principally nn Insects
and fruit, but n grent portion of the
fruit which they consume Is wild ber
ries. Domestic fruits nro euteii ho spar
ingly by theso species that the damage
done Is quite negligible.
The bird known as the Townsend
solltulro Is noted chlclly for Its kuiik.
which Is said lo bo tit times the finest
of any of the thrush family. This
thrush, however, conllnes Itself iilmost
entirely to tho mountains und gorges of
the far west- The wood thrush, ou tho
other blind. Is distributed over the east
ern part of the United Slides ami Is a
frequenter of open groves and bushy
pastures. This thrush also Is noted for
Its sweet song, especially In the curly
evening. 1 1 does nut nest In guldens or
orchards, however, and Is seldom seen
about farm buildings, mo that mnliy
people who nro familiar with Its song
would not know the bird by sight. The
wood thrush consumes n number of
very harmful insects such as the Colo
rado potato beetle and white grubs.
Tho fruit which It eats It usually picks'
up from tho ground Instead of taking
frwli from the trees. Theio Is there
fore no reason why the wood thrush
should net be rigidly protected.
Tho other varieties also neeni to ent
little that is of vnluo to farmers, while,
on the other tin ml, l hey destroy miiltl
tildes of harmful Insects each year.
