ERFVL. WORK IN TEXAS
i astonishing to note the tidal
Vvare of prohibition sentiment in old
dtnnoeratic Texas. aIt is a veritable
baJtie gwrd- Tbe liquor men of all
- stgjb are taxing themselves and busi
' ness to the utmost to raise a corruption
fund running in to scores of thousands
of dollars realizing that they must de
feat the amendment in Texas on Aug
ust 4th if they would stay the fast ris
ing tide in Tennessee and Oregon.
!JBut U. S. Senator Reagan is out with
stirring speeches and ringing letters
for it. So is ex-U. S. Senator Maxey.
8o wit it Congressman Culberson. The
0lored bishops and clergy are side by
(tide with their white brethern. Tbe
liquor men and politicians hope to buy
; up the blacks, and drive them to the
' polls like sheep to a slaughter pen.
J At Fort Worth, last week were a
procession of 5,000 prohibitionists, two
miles long, and dinner tables a mile
in length. Forty-two beeves and many
sheep were slaughtered and roasted for
the free barbecue. Dozens of wagons
full of pics, cakes, bread and butter
were sent in. At least 25,000 people
came into town on the occasion. All
wa2 hawnonious. No liquor nor the
- -' effects of it were seen. Ex-XT. S. Sen
ator Maxey and others spoke. Will
rtjublicans of Oregon permit the anti
amendment papers to lead them to de
feat,' while democratic Texas is doing
so gr and a moral reform work ? Rouse
freemen, rouse and let us raise Oregon
to the proud distinction of being the
first Pacific state to drive out the hell
The people of Oregon are to vote on
prohibit'ion this fall. It is the supreme
quescojjof the hoar. Every minister,
every church, and every Christian and
moral man can well do his best. As
the women cannot vote, they can do
the next best thing; to-wit : pray and
vise their utmost social influence to car
ry this election. Tne lives and happi-
ness of the women of Oregon depend
upon it. If Orogon votes for prohibi
tion, it will add to the value of prop
erty in the State, many millions. It
willdriveoutof it many idle, worthless,
vicious persons, and will surely bring
in many thousands of virtuous, intelli
gent, industrious, prosperous people.
Behold Kansas! She is expelling her
naloons, but filling the State with hap
py homes. Oregon cannot lose one
reputable citizen by prohibition. All
that will leave on that account will be
clear gain. She will make the State
most attractive and desirable to the
lest tflass of immigrants. Tlie benefits
tohe children of the State will be in
atsletilable. No possible harm, but im
mcSsuraWe good will come from prohi
bition. Vote it.

OF INTEREST TO FARMERS.
In New York city, low grades of but
ter, sav front eleven to twelve cents,
are in demand for export to the conti
nent of Europe. There seenw to be
less of this poor butter made than for
merly. Low prices in the world's
market stimulate consumption and
help to alworb the present llWral pro
duction of the various dairying coun
Milk cannot be made from nothing.
If the material for its manufacture be
not found in the food it will be taken
from the accumulated flesh of the
body, and if no surplus flesh has been
accumulated the secretion of milk will
either cease or the materials be drawn
from the muscles and tissues which are
otherwise needed for the maintenance
of health and strength.
Grass and green crops are succulent
and digestible, but they contain a large
quantity of water and are deficient in
the fat and proteine, or albuminoid
matter, needed for the most profitable
product of a dairy. Therefore" the dai
ryman should feed corn menl or cotton
seed meal, with bran and middlings,
with the green fodder, but the quan
tity to he used, and the Kinds or these
foods, must be determined bv careful
experiment, the results of which are
to le noted day by day for a suflicient
time to rounu a rule upon.
Aeid is the most treacherous and ef
fective agent of change in milk, cream
and butter. It should I watched for
at everv turn and lieu trail zed l,v v
ery possible means. The addition to
the milk of a small quantity of soda
will take up the aeid as fast as it is
formed, and will remain as lactate of
soda in the milk in an inert ami harm
less condition; but to avoid the pres
ence or tins aciu tne rood and every
utensil used in the stable, feeding pro
cess, and in the care of the milk should
be kept nwst rigidly free from acidity
Milk that is cooled to a low tempera'
ture will sour very rapidly when the
temperature is raised again. This is a
well known characteristic of milk and
all other nitrogenous bodies. Meat
that is kept for a time in a refrigerator
win very uuicniy spoil when taken out.
and milk has the same peculiarity. It
is supposed that the cold breaks up
the atoms of milk sugar, which change
to lactic aeid by a rearrangement of the
atoms without any fermentation.
Milk should be cooled moderately and
not lower man ou orao degrees.
Russian dairv products have made
their appearance in the English mar
ket, and that the prospects are favora
ble for a large and increasing: trade in
butter and cheese with Russia. There
are tine dairy sections in the Baltic
provinces, heretofore neglected, which
can be turned to good ..account now
that a profitable foreign outlet Is pre
sented. This supply may not afreet
the prices much this season, but it
is likely to in the near future. These
facts go to show that the interest of the
American dairyman lies in the judi
cious development oi our nomo mar
Dairying will pay in the long run, if
itjs intelligently managed. There is
no business that promises letter for
there is none for whose products there
is a more universal demand; and the
more of good butter we have the better

poor butter is sold to the country dea-

Although the Merino is a small sheep,
an advantage possessed by the breed is
that a large number can lie kept togeth
er in one flock mot easily than can be
done with some other breeds.
The heaviest lamb erer raised in the
United States, an Oxford, which attain
ed 100 pounds in nine months, was fed
all the ground oats, in addition to its ;
mother's milk, it could eat. A twin !
sister reached is7 pounds in the same
In their native hills it is said that
the Cheviot sheep are excelled by none.
Thev are- as large as the Cotswolds, j
while the mutton is considered better
and the fleece finer and closer. On
good pasture the fleece grows finer and j
sells for a higher price than when the
animals are fed on coarse grass. i
After shearing, ticks will emigrate
from the shorn sheep to the laml;
then is the time to drive the ticks out
of the flocks. Watch the lambs, says
farm and Home, and when the ticks!
have colonized then dip in tobacco-j
water. Twelve to fifteen pounds refuse
tobacco boiled in a gallon or t wo of wat-;
er, then diluted to make one barrel, will ;
do for 100 lambs. !
It is an easy matter to stunt the
growth of the wool of the sheep and
the lambs, and a stunted growth is
never desireable in anything. . The
lonr we farm the more thoroughly
satisfied do we liecome that it pays to
keep stock growing steadily all the time,
just the same as a crop, and that any
failure to do this a failure to secure as
much profit as we could.
The simultaneous development of the
bone, wool, fat and muscle in the sys
tem of the sheep requires a wide diver
sity of elements in tlie food. It would
be impossible, for instance, to get ewes
to thrive well on a diet of corn alone;
they would gr'w too fat and would
amount to nothing. Variety is absolu
During the warm days, when bowel
diseases are liable to occur, a teaspoon
ful of red pepper in the soft food of 20
hens will be found not only an excel
lent preventive of such difficulties but
also a stimulant and invigorator. Give
it a trial, as it i cheap.
No fowcls should be permitted to
roost on the rims of the nest boxes, or
remain on the nest at night. To pre
vent tiiis, drive a row of tacks on the
rims so as to render it painful to the feet
should the birds attempt it. Roosting
on the nests makes them soon filthy
and invites lice to take possession.
You eaiutot become entirely free from
tlie pests of lice in your poultry-house.
You can get rid of the pests, but the
work of keeping them out must go on.
When you cease operations they return.
It is not necessary to.go to extremes ex
cept to get them out, but care must be
taken when once lice are driven out
that the quarters will not be very in
viting for their return. Once a week
saturate the roosts with kerosene, on
both under and upper side, and sprin
kle the premises with soap emulsion
and kerosene. If the droppings are re
moved, and the nests kept clean after
so doing there will be but little danger
It is not best to kept food licfore the
' hens all the time, as it allows them to
overfeed and become fat and lazy, but
we believe that if a box of ground meat
is placed before the hens, and kept fill
ed, that the hens will lay better, pro
vided the balance of the food is compos-
h1 Uiro-clr of rrn$s or fttffrod hav. Tr,

will make the hens lay, and that is the
main jioint to consider no matter what
the food may consist of. ; It is not the
abundance of food that provides eggs,
but tire quality of it, and no flock that
is liberally supplied with meat will fail

Washington, July 31. The weather
crop bulletin of the signal office at
Washington, for the week ending July
30 says: During the week the weather
h?s been warmer than usual from the
southern Sew England and middle At
lantic states westward to the Iioeky
mountains, the average daily excess be
ing about three degrees.
During the week there has lieen an
excess of rainfall in states bordering on
the Atlantic and in the east Oulf states,
Minnesota and Dakota, North rn Ne
I braska. These excessive rains have
been accompanied by severe local storms
resulting in injury" to growing crops
j and retarding harvest. In the central
valleys and the lake region less than
the usual amount of rain occurred, and
drouth continues in the corn 111, ex
tending from Ohio westward to Iowa
During July the rainfall was gener
ally in excess in states on the Atlantic
coast, throughout the cotton belt, in the
extreme northwest, and portions of the
upper lake region; and in all other sec
tions there has been less than the usual
amount of rain during the month and
probably less than one-half the usual
amount'through the corn belt.
Excessive heat and alisence of rain
throughout the corn belt has a fleeted
this crop unfavorably, and reports from
Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and thence
westward to Kansas indicate that
drouth has unfavorably affected jxta
toe and the com crops. In the Middle
Atlantic and New England states the
weather has lieen favorable to corn, but
excessive rains have injured hay and
oats. In Minnesota, Dakota and Ne
braska the Weather has been generally
favorable to all crops, and harvesting is
in progress as far north as the 47th par
allel. Chicago, July 31. The following
cropsummary will appear in this week's
issue of the J-'armeri? Jtcvirtv. Con
tinued drouth in many states has ma
terially damaged the corn crop. Where
rains have fallen tlie injury is, howev
er, not as serious. The oat crop at this
date is turning out light, as was ex
pected. Wai.t.a Walxa, July 3ft. Returns
from different threshing machines now
in operation in the Walla Walla valley
show an average yield of wheat of forty
bushels. On some large farms it will
go sixty-five bushels. In the vicinity
of Weston and Ccnterville the crop is
much better than was exacted. On
several farms sixty bushels is the aver
age for wheat, and sixty tocighty bush
els is the average for barley.

Health and apostolic lienediction.
It is well known to us how ruinous,
how deplorable is the injury lioth to
faith and to morals that is to be feared
from internpeianee in drink. Hence,
we esteem worthy of all commenda

selves to abstain totally from every
kind of intoxicating drink. Let pas

the plague of intemperance from the
fold of Christ by assiduous preaching
and exhortation, and to shine before
all as models of abstinance, so that the

threatens both church and state may
