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 margarine, which is largely sold butter, and on the system of putting up butter in rolls weighing less than two pounds. . 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 dead. '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 day. " 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 form." 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, is advocated. 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. Woman's World. Current Comment. 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." Progressive Women. 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 Christian loans Womei 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. Before Von Clean House "; 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. Have the courage of your convictions in dealing with the contents of trunks and boxes. Dispense ' with non essentials and systematize the re mainder and your reward will be a delightful sense of space and a feeling of almost physical relief. .
