The County Seat.
On Monday last it was the pleasure
of ye editor to upend the day in Albany.
In common with-those who have a
pride in home interests and in home
institutions, we only do our county sent
justice in referringwith pride to it pub
lic and private buildings. The court
house is one of the iiest in the stnte.
The public school building is also one
of the finest in the valley, while the
collegiate institute, under the umnasjv
mcnt of Rev. E. J. Thonion, is in a
flourishing condition and i.s fust becom
inir one of the first institutions of learn
ing in the state. The Sister's school, or
Ht. Mary's Academy is also a haiulemme
structure, and a medium through which,
many are preparing themselves for the
duties of life.
During the past year the citizens and
buines8 men of Albany have tieen en
deavoring to give their city prominence
as a railway center by bracing up the
Oregon Pacific with "handsonie dona
tions in the way of money and land,
and it was supposed that" lefore this
time the company would have a force
at work extending their line through
the valley to the mountains, "and by
fall another railroad would have con
nected this valley with Eastern Ore
gon and the ocean. At present, how
ever, the indications do not point this
way. While we would like to see the
road built we have but little faith iu the
present management to da so.
During the visit we met a nmuTier of
the business and professional men all '
of whom were very agreeable, and
some of them liberal in the way of pat
ronizing the so-called pestiferous news
paper man. Like our Lebanon mer
chants and businessmen, those of Al
bany are liberal when it cranes to en
couraging public enterprises, and some
of them also believe in the free use of
printer's ink. Among those who desire
to reach a whole lot of good customers
in this part of the eountv thromrh Tub
KxPRKSsare Messrs. Wallace Thomp

The P. O. D. Petitioned.
' Daring this week a petition setting
forth theinconveniencies which the citi
zens of Lebanon and vicinity are sub
jected to under the recent change in the
mail service, and asking that the service
he transferred back to the star route sys
tem. The petition has been largely
signed and the department should
grstnt the request, or in some way ar
range so that we can get our mail once
a day. As it now is, we are from one
to three days behind in everything that
is transpiring not only in remote places
but in onr own immediate vicinity.
Home time ago Senator Mitchell was
"telegraphed about the matter, but s
yet nothing has been done, hence the
petition we here speak of. If it is not
heard from and the P. O. D. still seems
to slumber, probably dynamite would
wake it up in the interest of the people
of this part of the state, , While we do
not wish to be understood as recom
mending an entire annihilation of the
P. O. D. on account of Vilas' nigardly
policy, we do approve of some method
of informing him and his subordinates
that our mail service heretofore was
good just what we wanted and that

How to Test Seeds.
The Ontario Agricultural college has
Nsued a bulletin on t Ills subject of
which the following are extracts:
Place 100 seeds "lietween shetts of
blotting pajier laid on sand, and keep
the paper damp in a place where the
temperature is aliout 78 to W deg. Fah
renheit, The nuuilicr of sec Is germi
nating will indicate the percentage
Place the seeds on a piece of llanucl
in a saucer, with Sufficient water to
moisten it thoroughly. After scatter
ing the seeds (100) on the flannel, put a
piece of Uamp blotting, pajs-r over the
whole and keep it in a warm room.
Keep it continually dump, and in a
short time the s-cd will germinate; the
mimlier sprouting will be the percent
age of good s'ed.
For examining seed as to purity, scat
ter them on a piece of black cardboard,
and the foreign seeds are readily ol
served. If a good selection of seeds
true to their kind, is kept for compari
son, the impurities can lie easily iden
tified. Here follow the results of several
tests in the germinator, but the follow
ing inferences drawn from them cover
the ground, so far as all practical pur
wsc8 are concerned:
1. Age has a market effect on the vi
tality of certain seeds.
2. "Many seeds have lost much of their
vitality front improper curing or other
3. Frozen wheat is not reliable for
seed, for even though germinating a
fair wr cent. Its growth in the field is
of a more or less weakly nature.
4. All seeds should be tested for vi
tality and purity.
5. Seeds are more likely to lie good
from seedsman than from commission
0. A small percentage of Impure seeds
means very many in a bushel.
Most kinds of fruit trees thrive liest
on rolling fund. Hardy grapes do well
on almost any soil with a little care.
Sandy ridges are liest adapted to their
growth, hut sand and leat mold mixed
with underdrained clay will produce
largo vines and fine yields of fruit.
Experiments on wheat culture at Cor
nell univerisity have developed the fact
that the grain starts best when covered
from one-third to two-thirds of an inch
in depth. Any deopercovering result
in a luore backward growth.
