Powdery mildew of roses is a dif

way Is to start sa soon as new
growth begins in the spring and
apply the finest dusting sulphur
obtainable at weekly intervals, says
the Oregon Experiment station. The
early morning while the air is still
is the best time to make the appli
cations. The early spring is the best time
to poison gray digger squirrels, says
the Oregon Extension service. The
squirrels have not been out of hiber
nation long, consequently are hun

ily than at any other time. The poi
soned grain may be obtained from
any county agent, at cost.

Maggots have been causing con
siderable loss to cattlemen this
spring following the dehorning of
their yearlings, and the danger in

weather. The best treatment is to
put in the cavity something that
will vaporize quickly, such as gaso
line, ether, or chloroform, and to
rub the top of the head with pine
tar, says the Oregon Experiment
service. Careful watching is nec
essary to see that the treatment is
proving effective. Early dehorning
in ordinary seasons avoids the trouble.

by which electric service is measured to you.
Its power to serve you is much more ver
satile, more flexible than that of the horse.
You can make it lift tons or wash your most
You can make it flood acres or toast your
