Many Quaatlona Asked and An
' awared Prof. Cordley Tells
How lo Kill Hop Lice
Beginning at Grants Pau last gator
day Dr. Jamea Withyoombe, director
of the Oregon Slate Agricultural
College, and Prof. A. B. Cor. liny, en
tomologist, and Prof. K. L. Kent,
dairy instructor at the college, are
holding thia week a an lea of fine
firmer! institutes in Rogue Kiver
Valley. The institute at Granta Paxi
was preaided over by Hod. A. 11. Car
ion with Charlea Meaerve aa secretary.
Mr. Carson briefly outlined the
work of 'he institute and then asked
that the farmers present any to ic
that they wished discussed. Stephen
Jewell stated the hop lice wire
leadily gaining year by year in the
yards of Southern Oregon and asked
bow best were they to be extermina
ted. Prof. Cordley in reply gave a
clear sketch of the habits of the Imp
lice and of the beat methods of soli
doing it. He said that early in the
spring the egga of the aphia, which
had been laid the prerioos full on
plom aud prone treei, hatched. Each
aud every egg produced a female.
These are known aa the atoiii-niotln r.
lu about a week these atein-mothcia
mature aud eanh gives birth to several
aphids of the second generation.
Theae are like the atem-niothers,
witiiout wings and of cob i so remain
upon the plnm. Ou reaching ma
turity, they like the atcm-motlicr
give birth to another generttiion of
aganiio females, the individuals of
which as they approach maturity, de
vclop wings aud migrate to the hop.
Thia migration occurs about June 1st
In the Kogue River Valley or possibly
during the hut half of May and alter

could be destroyed, there could be no

winged malts ia thro developed upon
the hop. These fly to the plnm, mate
with the females each of which then

three small oval eggs, which are at
first green but later become shining

SOME TOUGH CHARACTERS
Hobos are Passing Southward in
Few of the residents of Grants Pass
realize what the night marshal has
to cor tend with in the bands of hobos
and toughs that are making their an-
noal fall migration Sooth ward. The
number ia greatly swelled thia year
on account of the Lewis and Clark
fair aud until long after its close thia
shifting population will be steadily
moving southward. The general char
acter of these derelicts la much worse
than ever before aa the fair haa at
tracted great numbers of the worse
element of society. The marshal is
kept ever on the watch and all who
atop off here are advised to keep on
the move. It ia, however, Impossible
for one nightwatcli to keep an eye on
alj parta of the city or even the bosi
nesa part for the hobos travel In bands
and one or two of them can occupy the
marshal's attentioo in one part of town
while the rest of the gang are operat
ing in a different locality.
Honi3 of thi hoboa have been landed
In the city lockup at different times
and fed ou bread and water which
tends to give them a wholesome regard
for the anthoritira and a desire to
make their stay iu town as abort as
possible. A city rock pile would make
the tramps floe from Grauts Pass 11

SAYS IT IS BLUFF THAT
WINS IN GAME OF LIFE
Not the Hand You Hold But the
Way You Play It That
Takea the Pot.
Life ia but a poker game. It ia
not the haud you bold but tne mun
you put up that wina the pot.
While the game ia going on, is
not at all a bad idea to pin a blanket
over the transom, lock tne aoor anu

Poker ia a peculiar game ao ia life.
It ia also called the great American
game. A bullet-beaded man with a
i-Muimnnii of hralui mixed with a
dincerfol of bluff can eit down to
table aud with two trays and a jack of
cluba lead the man opposite him to
believe that he has got a royal Beugal
flush. And the man opposite may
have three kings! But bluff wina and
rakes in the money.
We may divide mankind into three
classes. Men who never get any de-
ceut cards dealt them; meu who can
not play good cards even if they g t
rliein-. and men who can play ttio
game with only a tray spot.
Here is a man with only a auiall
amount of ability, but what he has,
he keera right up in the flout part of
the shep, plate glass windowa aud au
electric sign out in front impressing
the public with the idea to keep
their eyes ou him. The newspapers
chronicle all hia comings aud goings
whether it ia catching trout in Sucker
Creek, digging clams at Newport or
slnmminir iu th North Eud. This
ia what is called puttiug on a magui
ficeut "front. "
The general public ia rather auper
flcinl and thia blare of trunipeta hits
it where it ia weak. It looks at the
electric sign, peera through the plate
ulasa window and saya: "Jonea ia a
mighty smart man. Guesa I'll dt
business with Jones." Jouea makes
the bluff work aud rakea iu the pot.
And yet if they would get back of
that plate glasa window, they would

are well repaid fur their inconven

ply reads: "John Brown died yester

When the committees of the Untied

next December, a fight is to be made
to wrest the chairmanship of the
Isthmian Cn.al Committee from Sena
tor Mitchell of Oregon. Because of
the prominence which canal legisla
tion is likely to attain at the coming
session, it is desirable that the Senate
committee should be in the bauds of
some good strong mau, fully compe
tent to coudoct hearings direct the
work of the committee, aud assume
charge of whatever caual legislation
may be reported to the Senate. It is
recognized that Senator Mitchell can
do uoue of these things. Therefore
there ia a gcoeral desire that a new
