Unpainted and unsightly outhouses,
fences, etc., give an otherwise attract
ive farm a most forlorn and discourag
ing appearance. A paint made by the
formula used hy the government in
making the paint osed on lighthouses,
barracks, buildings, etc., can be made
very cheaply and by any person and It
can be apt lied by a brush, broom or
a pump. All the exposition buildings
are painted with this mixture and it
can readily be made of any color de
sired. During the dry leasoon is the
proper time to apply it for then the
pores of the wood are open and the
paint thoroughly fills all interstices
and gets set before the rains come.
There are many buildings, fences,
etc., in Josephine county that would
be both improved in appearance and
preserved from the effects of the
weather were they coated with this
The following is the foarmnla for
making . this government paint and
farmers and others should cut it out
and paste the clipping where it can
readily be fonnd and then the first
spare time they have make np a quan
tity of the paint and then brighten np
their premises :
Half a bushel unnlacked lime, slack
with warm water, cover it during the
process to keep iu the steam ; strain the
liquid through a fine sieve or strainer;
add eight quarts of salt previously
well disiolved in warm water, three
pounds of ground rice boiled to a
thin paste and stir in boiling hot;
half pound of Spanish whiting and a
pound of glue which has been pre
viously dissolved over a slow fire,
and add five gallons of hot water to
the mixture, stir well and let stand
for a few days -covered tip from the
dirt. It should be put on hot. One
pint of the mixture will oover a
square yard If properly applied.
Small brushes are best. There is
nothing that can compare with it for
outside or inside work, and it retains
its brilliancy for many years. Color
ing matter may be put in and made cf
any shade, Spanish brown, yellow
ochre or common olay. .

Founders of Agricultural College
Intended School Make In
ligent Tillers of Soil.
There is a feeling through 'the state
of Oregon that the Agricultural Col
lege should be developed more along
the line of the original intention.
The colleges of letters and arts are
very well, but the experiment farm
aud agricultural subjects should re
ceive the greater atteution. Dr.
Withyeoinbe and bis staff have been
doing the best In their power, with
means at baud but have beeu handl
capped because the agricultural end
of the iustitution has been made tlie
side issue instead of the main.
To this view the O. A. O. needs im
provement) on the farm, a new duiry
barn, improved apparatus and better
specimens of improved cattle quite as
much as new dormitories or assembly
halls or the like. With the ueeds of
the dairy Industry, the work of the
Ar(imiltural College is of practical
worth. There is every reason why
the aitrioultiirul districts should be
closer to the college. Acqtiaiutnuce
has come through the work of the in
stitutes. Dr. Withy com he's valuable work iu
the way of forage plants has doue
much for agricultural Oregon
Through oorrespoinleuce information
of value along any Hue of farm busi
ueMs is available. That the nmio'ldea
of the Agricultural College may not
tie subordinated to somethiug else
should be the aim of its management.

The following tribute to tbe mem
ory of those who pass to the beyond
through their fool acts is being passed
around by tbe press:
"Take a walk through any of the
cemeteries throughout the country
and yoa will believe with ns that
fools are slowly but surely passing
away, says an exchange. With silent
tread yoa pass the last resting place
of the individual who blew into an t
empty gun. The modest tombstone of J
the girl who lighted the fire with
kerosene and the grass covered mound j
that covers the mortal remains of the
boy who took tbe mule by the tail is J
near by. The tall monument is for j
ine man wno jumped on me cars io
save a 10 rod walk. Side' by side lie
the remains of the intellectual idiot
that rode nine miles in 10 minutes
and the ethereal creature who always
kept her corset laced to the last hole.
Here reposes the young doctor who
took a dose of bis own medicine, and
the old fool who married a young
wife. Over yonder in the northwest
corner where the gentle breezes sigh
over tbe weeping willow lies the fel
low who told his mother-in-law she
lied. Near by his grave, reposes the
mouldering dust of the editor who
starved to death trying to run a first
class paper in a second-class town.
Further on lies tbe boy who went
swimming too early in the season, and
the lady wbo kept strychnine and
baking powder side by side in tbe
oupboard. And that unmarked, weed
grown grave in tbe dark, damp, dis
mal oorner, by itself, Is tbe dreary
resting place of the deadest of them
all the man who didn't advertise."
IMP OF INDIGESTION.
to Get the
writer upon stomach
"If you have ever
indigestion and who
has not? yoor
Imp dancing in
. the pit of your
stomach, oausing that organ to neglect
all of its duties, with a result that is
not only painiul, but fills you with '
misery from day to day." This
writer oertaiuly had suffered with in-.
digestion, for there' is no more disa-!
greeable, nerve-racking and sick-ill-!
over disease than indigestion. j
A great many people who have been j
treated for years -for diseases of the
heart, liver or kidneys, when they
used Miona stomach tablets found
that not only, did Miona cure the
stomach disorder, but it made them
well all over aud the other troubles
were also oured.
If you suffer with nervousness,
sleeplessness, indigestion, sick or ner
vous headache, pains in the back or
sides, get a 50o box of Miona from
Roterinund aud take one of the little
tahlots before each meal. It will do
yon a worl4 of good aud yon will
soon be well and free fiom indiges
tion, and its symptoms. Rotermund
has so in noli faith in this medicine
that be gives an absolute guarantee
with every box. Ask him to show
you this guarautce.
New Rate on Hops.
Effective Augast 23, the rate on

Intermediate points to Eastern com

for 100 pounds carloads, minimum
weight, space loading capacity of car,
but not less than 30,000 pounds; and
on the above date all arrangements for

vice heretofore furnished by this com
pany will be canceled.
Owiug to luck of private stonge
facilities at hop-shipping points ou i
the Southern Pacific Company's lines
iu Oregou, we will coutiuue to store
bops in company warehouses, for
which our usual char go of 5 cents a
bale a mouth will be made from the
date hops are placed io storage.
Io the past the company has pro
vided storage for bops at poiutsalong
the line for a period of t0 days free
cf oharge and likewise without cost
at Portland when consignments were
in trauait; but it is stated that facili
ties are such that this caunol be con

in cases where hop men are shipping
carload they most load the bops
themselves into the cars. The rail

The dairy industry promises to re
ceive a big impetus this Fall in Ore
gon by tbe nnosual low prices of hay
that is now prevailing all over the
state. With hay now only bringing
f6 to $8 ton on tbe farm in Rogue 1
River Valley and butter readily sell
ing for 60 cents a roll it is far more
profitable to feed the bay to cows than
it is to haul it to town. And be wbo

impoverishing his land, even alfalfa
land eventually losing its fertility, but j
feeding it on tbe place he will make
his land richer. There will be a '
larger demand next Spring (ban ever ;

will find it more profitable to haul
cream to town than hay.
Of the big crop aud present low
prices of hay in the Willamette Val
ley the Rural Spirit of - Portland has
the following to say:
" Perhaps the Willamette Valley never
harvested so hi g a crop of bay as it has
jnst finished taking care of. The bulk
of this hay Is red clover and vetch
and of high feeding valne not only for
dairy pn rposes but for "growing and
fattening stock of all kinds common
to our valley farms, and for farmers to
sell good vetch hay for (I a load,
word comes that they are doing in
places np the valley, seems like poor
business policy. There Is do kind of
stock that will not make a man money
eating good vetcb hay at that price
and with plenty of good stock to be
bad at reasonable prices it eeems
strange that any sane man would sell
hay so ceap. The absolute necessity
of raising a little cash for immediate
use is the only excuse we can imagine
for doing so and if a man has any
creiit at his local bank be had better
pay a little interest than fool his orop
away io this manner."

"I had been troubled with kidney
disease for the last five years," writes
Robert R. Watts, of Salem, Mo. "I
lost flesh and never felt well and
doctored with leading physicians and
tried all remedies suggested 'without
relief. Finally I tried Foley's Kid
ney Cure and less than two bottles
completely cured me and I am now
sound and well." During the Sum

oaused by excessive drinking or being
overheated. Attend to the kidneys at
