Unusual Interest, according to Mrs.
Davidson Is being shown tills jear by
tho chllilron In tho gardening work
which wus stnrted last year. It Is
hoped that eacli pupil may have n
section of ground 8 foot by 1!0 reel
for cultivation. Tlio children nio
permitted to reallzo on their own gar

Cultivation of dowers will bo ono

Place fourteen quarts of oats in n
receptacle such ns n galvanized wash
tub. Mix ono tablespoon of ordinary
dry gloss starch with ono tencup full
of cold water. Add this to n pint of
hot water and boll until clear. Tills
starch should bo smooth and freo
from lumps. Add tho strychnlno
powder nnd soda, then beat until tlio
solution Is of tho consistency of
cream. A small teacup of table salt
dissolved In tho hot wnter previous
to adding tho solution occasionally
incroasoo tho olllcloncy of tlio poison.
Pour this creamy mixture over tho
onts and mix thoroughly until ovory
grain Is contcd. It Is a good plan to
lot tho grain ntnnd a few hours nnd
then mix again. Dlstrlbuto in largo
tnblcspoonfuls about stock yards or
previously linked polcon corrals from
which stock is excluded. It Is n
good plan to bait theso corrals with
a few forkfuls of green nlfnlfn hay
n fow nights previous to exposing tho
poison nnd thus get tho rabbits to
feeding there reg larly. Clear cold
nights, when snow Is on tho ground
and tho rabbit's natural food supply
scree, Is tho best time to expose
poison. Evory iinrt should make
from twonty-flvo to thirty-five doges.

Pocket Gophers.
Whore a fow pocket gophors Infost
a field thoy may bo enslly controlled
by tho tiBo of several makes of traps
now commonly on tho ninrkot. For
ridding alfalfa Holds, long stretches
of ditch embankment nnd other large
areas of thoin, a much moro practical
method of destroying pocket gophers
Is by tho uso of poisons. A poison
prepnred ns follows hns given good
results In experiments by tho Biolog
ical Survoy nnd largo areas of na
tional forests hnvo been cleared of
this pest In this manner:
with ono tenth ounco saccharine. Tho
baits are now ready for use.
Tho burrows are bes: located by
means of a gopher prone. This can
bo mado from nny stout handle about
thirty six Inches In length. Ono
edge should bo bluntly pointed nnd
n foot rest aids in tho probing In hard
soils. Ono soon becomes expert in
locating tho gopher burrows or run
ways by probing tho ground n foot
or two back of tho terminal mounds,
Tho runway can bo usually felt ns tho
point breaks through it. Tho round
ed end of tho gopher probo Is now
used to cnlargo tho hole nnd bait or
two dropped Into tlio burrow, tlio
probo holo then being closed. Units
should only bo Introduced at threo or
four points In each burrow system of
ton to thirty mound? ns this Is dual
ly tho homo of a single gopher. In
our experience, halts placed fairly In
tho runwnys will Invariably kill the
gopher. Theso directions apply to
tho small pocket gopher of Eastern
Oregon nnd tho Middle- West. It Is
quite posBlblo that tho poisoning of
tho largo pocket gopher of tho Pa
cific const may require n slightly dif
ferent method. Howovor, tho nbovo
Is cortalnly worthy of trial. One
