The Lebanon Express.
FHIDAY, JULY 1, 1887.
J". H. STINE, Editor.
A fire in Ba.vton, W. T., one night
last week, destroyed ?1 13,000 worth of
Kit CaiimTPor(ATltTTn resolving
to ask the governor of Oregon to use
his Influence in having the flag order
re voked, mistook their man.
With the Portland Aetr, we enter a
most emphatic protest against Mr. St.
John, of Kansas, coming to Oregon to
lecture for Prohibition. As the pen
pie have no confidence In him, he will
do us more harm than good. Keep
hi ni away.
James G ..Blaine s;iys prohibition has
been a grand Miecess in Maine, that it
has greatly lessened or practically ubol
ished the liquor traffic in that state.
Neal tv says the same; about every
official of that state who has made a
statement on the subject ot late years
hfls given the same testimony to the
efficiency of prohibition in Maine.
A severe warning to Chinese miners
comes from an Idaho mining region
A whole camp of Chinese miners were
slain in a night. Opinion is divided ns
to the authorship of the bloody deed
but the whites, the reds, and the yel
lows, are suspeettd. More than likely
It was the whites who look with an evil
eye upon Chinese intrus on in Amerl
can mines. The American miner kicks
hard at the Chinese miner.
Prohibition leaders claim that they
will be able to poll 50,000 votes in New
York in November. This is a large
claim, and though the increase in their
vote in recent years has been steady, it
has not been large enough each year to
make so great a gain as th'.s probable.
It was nearly 19,000 in lbS3, nearly 2 v
OOOinlSSl, nearly 31.000 in 18S5 and
over 36,000 in 1SS6. Th'-re is a regular
advance of from 5,000 to 6,000 votes a
year, but the present claims is f r 11,000
advance. They may make it, however.
Better times are upon us. Every
thing indicates that the vear 1SS7 is to"
"be one of the lest Oregon has ever seen.
If people will only use the lessons of
thrift and economy that a few hard
years just past have taught them, the
next few years may indeed be a grand
era of prosperity. Economy is not in
consistent with the highest degree of
enterprise; it only makes the results of
intelligent enterprise moi? substantial
and enduring. Industry, economy and
enterprise are the elements of success
in building up either private fortune or
developing a state are now, have been
in the past and will continue to be in
B. 8. Worsley, resident of the Asto
ria,socalled State Board of Directors of
the Firemen's Association, writes Capt.
C C. Hacklemati of this city, a long j
letter attempting to smooth over thec.e-:
tion of said Board in g ttingaway with
the flOO the I.-bam u team won at j
Vancouver. He says now that it M as '
the third coupling .that was not broke j
by hand. Mr Worsley knows very well
there was nothing said about the third
coupling when the contest wsrs decided
in favor of Lebanon. Too thin, Mr.
Wn too thin. You have got our boys'
money. Keep it, and dou't make mat
ters worse in trying to white-wash
your Astoria Board of Directors for giv
ing j our Astoria firemen a prize they
they did not merit.
It always pays to plant trees.

Muncie, Ind., has the largest gas
well in the world. It is flowing at the
rate of 12,000,000 feet per day.
Sunflower seed, which can be easily
grown without trouble, forms a food of
which fowls are extremely fond.
Don't feed little chicks until they are
thirty-ix hours old. If fed before'that
time their digestive organs are impair
ed. Feed plenty of carrots and plenty of
grain, keep the cows warm and you
mav have fairly yellow butter in win

give a valuable product, and yet cost
nothing beyond being provided with
To cure a horse of the botts, drench

ur common wild sage. It will bring
relief mi one hour.
To have the best success with small
fruits,manore hiprhly and give thorough
cultivation, littler raise 300 bushels
on one acre than on three.
Massachusetts experiments show that
planting raedium-eized whole potatoes
gives better returns than when half po
tatoes of the same size are planted.
The freshest eggs are the heaviest,
and when placed in a pan of water will
sink to the bottom at once. Older eges
will sink partly, .while stale eggwill
float on top.
Dairy schools have proved beneficial
-in Kurope. The agricultural college of
Mississippi in the only one in this coun
try where special attention is given to
practical butter and cheese making.
Several men have sold to farmers, at
$3 per dozen, eggs which they said
would hatch valuable chickens. They
promised to pay $3 apiece for ail
chickens raised. The'eggs were boiled.
The Illinois bouse of representatives
has just made it a punishable offense to
obtain certificates of registry of cattle
and other animals by false pretense, and
also to give false pedigrees of animals.
Provide an ash Jxith for fowls by fill
ing an old dish pan or some vessel that
is wide and shallow, with dry, fresh
wood ashes. This is better than the
dust bath, keeps fowls fr from lice,
and I lev like 'it..
Dry, dusty hay makes a very unpal
atable meal for hordes that have to work
hard. The best of nay Is liable to bej
a little dusty ut this time of the year,
and is not injured tt all by being damp
ened a little before fed.
Calves should be kept growing IVom
the start. A month-old calf should be
fed an ounce or so of oat meal or fine
bran every day. Young calves should
be carefully guarded against overfeed
ing and vermin.
I r you expect your grain to come up
evenly, do not plow a whole field before
you sow, when you have a few acres
plowed, then sow while the surface Is
moist, before it has time to dry out.
This is especially necessary in the In
land Empire, where the surface dries
