THRESHING HAS BEGUN
Light Crops Prevail In the Rogue
Threshing began 111 the Rogue river
valley this week. The crop Is the
lightest in years 011 account of the ex
treme dryness of the season. Fall sown
grain bus made, as always, a very
giMid crop but the spring sown grain
Is extremely light except 011 the bot
tom lands. One feature of the season
which made it harder on the farmers
was that the winter was extremely
and continually wet, making it diffi
cult to plant grulu until so latu that
the dry season set in before the grain
had a sn Mil lent start.

Points In Fashionable Milllnerv.
Tho high crowu remains a popular
style, iu straw as well us in lace,-
hlffon aud tule. In almost every in
stance the brim is wide all around,
with a slight (tare off the face.
Plumes and tisi offer manifold jiossi-
bilitles in thu adornment of high
crowntd hats, The revival of the little
b iiiuut with strings will undoubtedly
hecomo more general as the season ml
vances. Gossamer materials and
straw braids ire used to fashion them,
and ostrich tiM, lace and sequins form
the decorations, with itrlngs usually
of velvet ribbon. Tim youthful face
lisiks especially well under a Hat
plateau or tlni new sailor with very
low crown and rather widi. brim,
though either shajsi may he varied
by rolling back the brim on one or
both sides or by rising it with a band
eau. For those who have tired of
straw there are tho smartest hats in
white, gray or fawn felt, with a
simple ribbou or scarf trimming.
Velvet ribbon in widths varying from
half an inch to two inches is much In
demand iu the millinery world. The
broad widths are used to foiin the
quillings that encircle the low crowns
of the new sailors, as well as for bows
aud rosettes. Both fruit and flowers
are to lie popular decorations for the
early Autumn hat, and in the reds,
deep greens and sere brown shades
they are particularly sea.ouablu.
Birds, too, are used and are admirably
suited to the present flat style or trim

M0 COFFEE HOUSES HERE.
Flea Which Worked IWadlljr la Bast
laa la Nut Taaa Vp la Ikt
The coffee house Is a temperance
substitute for the inn In England, saya
(iunton's Maguiine. It furnishes,
minus the intoxicating stimulants,
similar social features, but It is tacked
on to the same social habits thsttlie
Inn developed. In this country those
liuhits Here not formed by (lie saloon
..vperienee, and the attempt to estab
lish the coffee house as a substitute
fur the saloon necessarily lucks that
aocinl Incentive which rkjsts In Eng
land. The eotTee house here takcf on
thr feature of the restaurant rather
than cither the Herman beer garden
or the English inn. The Aiuerieiins
have never learned to go to there
plneea for their leisurely intercourse
and amusements and hence do not II nd
it when colTce Is suh.tituted for beer,
They have goue to the theaters or
to tlie clubs for this social outlet.
II Is, therefore, not surprising to the
careful student of European and
American tradition that the enffee
housfl plan doea lint wurk in this roun
try, though it worked nell In Eng
land. To be successful, soelal and eco
nomic as well as political Institutions
must largely grow out of the habits,
outturns aud derlret of the people.

"Cows have their likes and their dis
likes," said Uia milkmaid to the suin
msr boarder who waa curious to see
evej-y part of the farm, according to
the New York Tribune.
"For Instance, a row admires a
horse, and will stand and watch ons for
a long time. She Is sort of timid about
him, but she admires him just the
same. Mie has a contempt lor a mule,
and seems to lis amused by hi antics.
Bogs she tolerates, that's all. And
sheep, she hates. She will not eat
grass where sheep have been. She
hates dogs, too, hut will tolerate the
shepherd dog, became she knows she
simply has to, and that the shepherd
dog will not bile her.
"Cattle go wild nt being let into a
fresh pasture," added the milkmaid.
"It seema to go to their heads. Esch
is nfniid thst the other has got a bet
ter feeding place I him herself, and
tries to drive her neighbor away."
"Then there is a good del. I of human
nature in the cow, after all," mused
the summer boarder, who hud studied
a year or two nt a university, and aas
given to phlloaophlenl reflections.
"Well, I should smile," answered the
milkinsld. "A single row, with a rulf
will boss a whole herd of steers," anil.
