President Rootevelt will open the
national apple show to be held in
Spokane from December 7 to 13 this
year. Manager H. J. Neely has re
ceived a letter from Congressman W.
L. Jones, stating that the president
has offered to officiate at the opening
of the big exposition on December 7,
and arrangements have been made
with the Western Union Telegraph
Company to furnish a direct wire
from the White House to the national
apple show building.
President Roosevelt baa shown
marked interest in the apple show and
has len( his support In other ways,
notably in requesting bis department
of agriculture to render every possible
aid. Owing to the fact that he will
be busy preparing for the opening of
the next congress which takes place
in Decern btr It will be impossible
for the president to attend.
Preaideut Roosevelt's commission
on couutry life which will hold sever
al sittings throughout the oonntry
for the purpose of studying conditions
as they exist on the farm, has selected
Spokane as one of its meeting places,
and will be bere during the week of
the national apple show. The Wash

will also meet In Spokane during that
Two other features of interest to
apple growers as well as the publio in
general will be demonstrations given
by; the students of the Washington
State College at Pullman and by the
Oregon Agricultural College at Cor
vallls The department of dnmestlo
economy of the Washmgton State Col
lege, onder the direction of Miss L.
Oertrnde MacKay, acting head of the
department will serve apples in every
form, giving actual demonstrations
of how to prepare and serve them
and also giving the publio Instruc
tions what varieties of apple are
best for different purposes.
The Oregon Agricultural College
will send a crew of expert apple
packers to give demonstrations of the
different parka, grading, etc They
will be in charge of Professor C. L
Lewis, of the college, as authority on
this work. Professor John Craig,
recognised as the leading pomologlst
of this oonntry, has been secured as a

tractions and amusements features
which will be given in connection
with the national apple show have
practically been completed. Bhnd

There ia a growing need of a forage
orop which will utilise the soil and
furnish green food and pasture during
the dry summer months. In many
sections where the dryseaaon ia much
longer, and possibly inooh dryer than
In this part of the Kogne River Val
ley, alfalfa has been found to be satisfactory.
Dairying in this section Is found
most piotaflble, except daring the
two or three months when feed is
scarce, aud then those of onr farmers
who are fortnnate enongh to have
land under Irrigation find it pays well.
Many farmers raise the Thooiund-
Headed Kale, which as a cow feed la
excellent and aeema to cut as much
milt in the bucket as any other kind
of feed known. It remains green
the year roand and can be pulled as
desired for feeding.
If alfalfa oould be raised extensively
and there are many who have tried
It that claim It can be, it would cer
tainly change the faoe of nature and
add Ininieusely to the wealth of this
section. It would increase the dairy
products and the poultry products,
cheapen the production of beef, pork
and mutton. The principal difilculty
In raising alfalfa ia getting good
stand, and in a dry climate this is
difficult to do the first year, yet with
the moisture of average rears there ia
no trouble on this score.
Alfalfa has been grown for 2000
years in the Mediterranean region.
A gentleman traveling over what was
then regarded as land unfit for settle
ment in Western Nebrsska by reason
of its aridity, discovered a thrifty
green alfalfa plant growing where no
other green thing oould be found for
miles around. That was a demon
stration that satisfied the geuth-man
and he purchased a large tract of land
for a trifle. Oo the same land he has
since fed 60,000 sheep lo one season
on alfalfa. Alfalfa goes down Into
the depths of the soil for moisture
and throngh wireless communication
with the atmosphere bringa dowo
from above food which feeds the'plant
and enriches the soil,

Kansas has Increated from to

steer ii-ooers ol Kansas, Uolorado sua
Kebrsksa would be lost without it. "
At the Kansas station it ia stated :
"A gain Ci 800 ponndaof pork was
made from a ton of alfalfa, and
a little lees than that amount of gain
was tus cle from an acre of alfalfa pas
ture." Again, "we found that IW
bntin ao doing has discharged its own
entire expense and in addition has
added millions of dollars to the wealth
of the state."
At the Ontario Agricultural Col
lege in 10 years 80 cuttings, yielding
over five tons an acre, were made.
An experiment showed Its great soil
euriohlng qualities. Wheat grown
after alaflfa yielded 61.5 bushels per
acre and atter timothy sod 43.1
bushels. In the two auooeedlng years
the alfalfa sod produced 80.9 bushels
of barley and 34 bushels oorn, while
the timothy sod produoed 19.7 bushels
barley and 17.9 bushels oorn. Tha
there crops on the alfalfa sod . wars
worth about $90, while those on the
timothy sod were worth about 168.
At the Oregon Agricultural College
alfalfa has been growing successfully
for tbrte years, sod tests are being
made by the agronomists with
different varieties to determine which
will suit the conditions heat in this
state. The station men are glad at all
times to answer questions In' regard .
to its cultivation.

A Com moo Cold.
We claim that if catching cold oould be
avoided some of ths most dangerous and
fatal diseases would never lie heard of. A
cold often forms a culture bed for germs of
infectious diwaxes. Consumption, pneu
iimnis, diphtheria and scarlet fever, four of
the must dangerous and fatal diseases, are ol
this class. The culm bed forinsd by tha
cold fuvors the development of ths germs ol
these diseases, that would not otherwise Hnd
lodk..int. There is little danger, however,
of any of lhe disease being contrscled
when a good expectorant cough medicine
like Chamberlain a Cough Remedy is ued.
It cleans out these culture beds that favor
the development of the germs of these di
eSjMM. That is why this remedy lias proved
so universally successful in preventing luirn
