The proposed dairymen's union was
formed at San Francisco June 1 with
B. H. Franklin of Cambria, San Luis
county, as president. Louis Tomassini
of Petal uma vice-president and C. P.
Marti secretary. A depot will be
established in San Francisco where
the members will send their butter
and it will be sold direct to retailers
without the aid of commission men.
The union will make war on oleo

up butter in rolls weighing less than
. To Poison Grasshoppers.
The grasshopper plague has been
more threatening in the early spring
on this coast this-year than ever be
fore. The Plural Press reproduces an
account of the most successful way of
combating it in vineyards, as follows :
" A mash composed of bran, arsenic,
sugar and water, the proportions
being one part of sugar, one and one
half parts of arsenic and four parts of
bran, to which is added a sufficient
quantity of water to make a wet mash.
A common washtubf ul of this mash is
sufficient for about fi ve acres of grape
vines. Fill the washtub about three-
fourths full of bran, add six pounds of
arsenic, and mix it thoroughly with
the bran ; put about four pounds of
coarse brown sugar in a pail, fill the
pail with water and stir until the
greater part of the sugar is dissolved.
Then pour this sugar-water into the
bran and arsenic, and again fill the
pail with water, and proceed as before
until all of the sugar in the pail has
been dissolved and added to the bran.
Now stir the latter thoroughly, and
add as much water as is necessary to
thoroughly saturate the mixture, and
it is ready for use.
"Throw about a tablespoonful of
this mixture upon the ground beneath
each vine infested with grasshoppers,
and in a short time the latter will
leave the vine and collect upon the
bran and soon commence feeding
upon it. Those which are upon the
ground six or eight feet from the bran
will soon find their way to it, appar
ently guided by the sence of smell, as
those to the leeward of the bran have
been observed to come to it from a
greater distance than those which
were upon the side of the bran from
which the wind was blowing. After
eating as much of the bran as they
desire, the grasshoppers usually crawl
off, and many hide themselves be
neath weeds, clods of earth, etc., and
in a few hours will be found to be
'The mixture costs from 35 to 40
cents per acre of vineyard, including
labor of mixing and applying it. In
orchards the cost will be considerable
less than this. One man can apply it
to eight or ten acres of vineyard in a
" The addition of sugar to this mix
ture is merely to cause the arsenic to
adhere to the particles of bran, and
not for the purpose of increasing its
attractiveness, since it was found that
the grasshoppers were not attracted
to pure sugar. Middlings or shorts
have beerused in the place of bran,
but are not so desirable, since in dry
ing they assume a solid mass which
the grasshoppers cannot eat, whereas
bran in drying never assumes a solid
There is some little difference of
opinion as to the proportion of arsenic
which is best; also as to the advisa
bility of using a little middlings to
make the mixture more compact. One
prescription is as follows :
Forty pounds of bum, lo pounds of
middlings, 2 gallons cheap syrup, 20
pounds arsenic, mixed soft with water.
Others reduce the arsenic to 15
pounds and others to 10 pounds, with
the same weights of other ingredients.
To enable one to gather up the
remnants of the poison after its work
is done, the practice is adopted of
placing the poison on shingles or
other thin pieces of wood which can be
easily seen and emptied. All such
surplus poison should be deeply
buried in the ground.
Naturally there was much appre
hension of evil from such free use of
arsenic when the remedy was first put
into practice. Very careful analyses
were made at the university labor
atory of the washings of vine leaves.
Srapes, and of the soil beneath the
vines, ana no dangerous amounra oi
arsenic were found, nor did there
appear any danger of contaminating
wells or other sources of water. Of
course domestic animals: and fowls
must be faithfully looked to while the
poison is exposed, and it is chiefly for
their protection that the use of
shiRgles in putting out the poison,
instead of throwing it on the ground,
No man need neglect his fruits or
his garden crops or his poultry be
cause he makes a special feature of
some class of stock, but he should
feel that some one thing which will
consume the raw material on the farm
is the leading business.
Some are holding that a cement
floor in a creamery is not the great
shakes it was once supposed to be,
for it absorbs the drippings of milk
and becomes foul. Brick floors do
the same. A flagstone floor that is
cemented at the ioints keeps sweetest
of the three kinds. But those who
put a tigtit plank floor laid on a thin
coating of cement with sills bedded in
the earth and cement, and paint it
well, find it is most easily kept sweet
and clean of them all.
The English or house sporrow of
Europe is in every way a nuisance,
and snould be destroyed at all times
and in all seasons in every possible
way that is safe to other life. One
good way to kill them by wholesale is.
to bait them with millet seed or other
small bright seed that they like for a
few days, and then toak a good big
feed of the same kind of seed in a
solution of arsenic and place it for
them. This will kill the little pests
by the wholesale. Great care should
be taken with the poisoned feed, and
any that is left after the sparrows are
aeaa snouiu u unstroywi.
The committee on temperance of
the Presbyterian general assembly
reported encouraging progress and
added ' the women's temperance
societies are the main factor in bring
ing about this result."
At a meeting of the executive Loard
of the Women's National Couneil at
Indianapolis a telegram was sent to
the General Assembly at Detroit ask
ing that Presbyterian women be al
lowed a voice in the ratification or
rejection of the creed. :- A committee
was appointed to ask that women be
admitted to the general conference of
the Methodist Episcopal church; to
ask the next triennial of Sunday
school workers of the United States
and Canada that they be placed upon
the committee on Sunday-school les
sons; that they be placed on the
National Reform Divorce League of
Boston, and to press upon the atten
tion of the next and each succeeding
congress a bill providing that all the
government employes be paid equal
wages with regard to work and in
viting the International Council of
Women to meet in Chicago during the
Columbian Exposition of 1893. The
National Council will assume the en
tertainment of all accredited foreign
delegates. No American delegates
will be recieved into the International
Council except from organizations
that have come into the National
Council of the United States.
A committee was appointed to pre
pare a symposium on dress to be
published under the auspices of the
National Council in one of the popular
magazines during the coming year
and to report to the conference of the
executive board of the council in May,
1892, its idea of a business dress. The
president was authorized to form a
committee to collect funds and secure
plans for the erection of a woman's
temple at Glen Echo. At the next
meeting of the National Council in :
1892 each state council may send two :
fraternal delegates, and in every state
where no council is organized the
local councils organized in cities may !
send one fraternity delegate. Where j
state councils are organized further j
steps will be taken to lead local organ- :
izations to aggregate themselves into :
a national organization. - j

The Pacific coast committee of the
Young Women's Christian association
held a parlor conference June 2 at the
residence of Miss Mindora Berry, 1812
Van Ness avenue, San Francisco.
Mrs. Edward Thomson, chairman
of the executive committee of the
Young Women's Christian association
of the Pacifie coast, told of the need
of extending the work for young
women to every city and town west of
the Rocky mountains. It was not in
large cities alone that young women
needed help social, intellectual and
spiritual. There were already 10,000
members of the association, and there
were 3o0 branches in the United
States, but the speaker felt that the
work was scarcely begun.
Miss Berry spoke of the associations
lately organized in the State Normal
schools and young women's colleges.
Eight new associations had been
started in Sacramento, Chico, Los
Aageles, Pomona, Ontario and Irving-
ton. But the speaker thought that
the work for young women ought to
be carried just as far as it had been
already for young men.
H. J. McCoy, secretary of the Young
Men's Christian association, said that
he was impressed that both associa
tions ought to go together, shoulder
to shoulder. One of the saddest truths
of to-day was that, while ayoung man
might be easily forgiven for a down
fall, it was not so easy for a young
woman to win forgiveness. The time
had come to save and Christianize the
young women of California.
J. P. Fay of San Jose said that
people do not realize either the needs
of young girls or the power of the
association. The latter would put a
greater value upon a girl's service
and raise her in the social scale by
developing in her a higher type of
womanhood. The greatest need of
to-day iB sympathy.
The secretary of the executive com
mittee Is Miss M. Berry; treasurer,
Mrs. William O. Gould.

Long before the calendar says it is
time to begin nousecleaning, says the
Ladies' Home Journal, you should
look over the magazines, papers, dis
abled furniture, discarded garments
and household ornaments which even
twelve months accumulate so wonder
fully. Be brave, and do not save an
indiscriminaie mass of articles against
the possible needs of the seventh year
of which we hear so much. Give away
the best of the old garments and sell
the remainder to the junk man. The
magazines and papers which you do
not intend to have bound or to utilize
in your scrap book will be eagerly
read in some hospital or other institu
tion. Even the furniture and orna
ments will greatly brighten the dreary
surroundings of some poor family.
