AnlJuat here I wouia ? urge moat

the obtuseneas of the child being set

instead of having at edoctor come and

who alts Indifferent to the tinkle of

GROWERS HAVE NO DJFFlCt'LTY,
IN" SAVINO THEIR CROPS AS
PICKERS ARE ' PLENTIFUL IN
. ALL THE YARDS THE MARKET
IS STRONG. .- ,
Hop picking la In full blast through
out the Willamette valley, and rapid
progress Is being made toward saving
this, Oregon' 'most reliable' and Im
portant crop. . In some of the big- yards
about half of the crop has been, bar
vester, while In others work was not
commenced until yesterday, while a
very few growers are still waiting for
the hope to get a little riper, '
. Those , who. picked all last week, it Is
said, gathered theirhops a, trifle green.
but, the hops are good and rich, and it
la said, the growers will all find a ready
market for all the hops they nave pro
duced this year. . , :
There is no pest doing damage to the
hop crop, and it Is now almost ' Im
possible for any pest or bligfet to strike
the, Oregon hops, as nearly .half -: the
crop has been gathered, and great in
roads are being, made In the balance of
the crop, and by next Saturday night
50.000 bales Of the.0.000. in this state
this year will be in the bale. t. f
Ii tha Gilbert A Patterson yard this
year, the yield will be 25 per cent higher
than, last yaar'a crop, due to the extra
cultivation , and care 'given ; tbe. yard.
Similar reports come form various sec
tions of the valley, and In all cases the
reports arree- that , the quality is the
beat ever had In the state. . . l
: There la an abundance of pickers. , At
the Levi yard. , above ? this city, the
number of pickers is 20 per cent In' ex
cess of tbe - requirement.; t The same
condition, exist at the Gilbert A Pat
terson yard near Eola. and .at Horst
Bros." yards the percentage Is even
greater, and! many pickera are being
turned away. There are more people
anxious to pick hops this year .than
ever before, i and growers have ' their
choice. - ' -
The price paid for picking la 40 cents
per box. This la the universal price all
over the valley, and all effortg on the
part of pickers , to raise the prlce;' to
bu cents oer .Doz nave oeen iuiub. m
some pf the. yards the pickers lined up
and demanded 50 cents, but a refusal
to pay the advance worked no harm to
the. grower, ,?. for . the people almost
without exception, returned ' to work. 1
Rumors are constantly flying about of
the price being Increased in some other
yard, but when run down, to their
source. It Is generally found tnat tne
story was started by , some irresponsi
ble people for tho purpose of creating
dissension. v ii , .
The market Is holding; up well. There
sre very few sales being made, a yet,
but quotations are firm, and the market
1 expected to open up at about 24 to
IS cents per pound for strictly choice
hops, -vrheie Is a report of one sale be
ing made at 2 cents a pound, but this

The threshing of grain In the vicinity
of Saleia and to fact, througbout the
valley, la rapidly drawing; te a close,
and threshing; ."outfit I have begun to
come Into the city,' disband and store
their machinery for the season. .
Much complaint baa been made about
tbe 'poor yield of grain generally and
the' managers, ol ' threshing crew are
very much .dissatisfied with the profits
of the season's run. There was an im-j
mense quantity of straw in every fleU
and the ffrain .had beaded, but when
the grain was threshed thk machines
were only able to thresh in thonelgbi
borhood of 1,500 bushels per day, where
2.500 to 3.000 bushels were obtained In
former years'. consequently the profits
were, small., , .-- . , t h.--'-':' , ' . ;

the best information at hand, give
Oregon about 12.785,000 bushels, - and
about 4.000.000 bushels to Idaho. Differ
ent causes , brough t . about tbe shrink
age. Frost, .last winter, did, much to
ward decreasing the yield, many field
being entirely froaen-out. while rain
this summer, did not fall generally, but
In -limited-area, and; eome field suf
fered greatly; as a result of this par
tiality of . tha alements. , As a result.
some . fields yield 40 bushels per acre,
while others, near by, and seemingly
aa favorably, equated, have less than
20 bushels to the acre . . A " :
,Jn Oregon there was some gain L in
acreage along: - the Columbia Southern,
but not enough to offset , the 'ess
due, to diversified : fanning in tbe Wil

of land devoted to oats and barley.' The

Corvallls Oasette: Hop picking' Is

just across the Willamette river from
this city. .Sim, the Chinaman, has the
yard rented and it la said that he baa
a good ' crop. : . He will . make some
money , thls yeara . There are twenty
acres tn the yard and the yield Is fair
ly good; Tbe yield will be something
more that ' 39.000 pounds. ? Sam '. is
playing; safety In the hop. business; In
stead of contracting all of his hop crop
he ' '.; contracted 15,000 " poundc The
price contracted for is 11 cent, per
pound. While this was not to his ad
vantage this year. It was a wise thing
to do, as it makes him safe under any
circumstances. By contracting only
15,000 pounds be still has at least half
of bis crop left to speculate on. The
hops In this yard are unusually line.
The yard was set out by Dave Osborn
several 'years ago and I one of the
finest yards In the country.

WILL TEST THE FOODS.
Government; Seek Effects- of Coloring
i - Matter on Man. '
The United Statea Department . of
to determine whether foreign subatan-
ces added to food products In the. na
ture of ." coloring; matter or preserva
tives are detrimental to the health of
man. " Congress appropriated $10,000
for these experiments, ,whichwlll be
made under the supervision of Dr. 11.
W. Wiley,' chief of tbe bureau of ani
Dr. Wiley, epects to xcbgln work
about October, ,
The e&perfments to be conducted arc
summed up by Dr. Wiley as follows:
The experiments will consist of ob
serving in young, healthy subjects the
metabollcal changes produced by foods
which contain no preservative, color
ing matter, or other added foreign sub
stances; then these- same food will b
continued to which these foreign sub
stances are added In known propor
tions, while the digestive and other
physiological functions wilt be studied
chemically. If any change or deraage
men tl site j ;
ment 1 produced It will be manifest.
The, same set of subjects will be put
back on ordinary food and it will be
noted-how soon these changes yceae to
exist and the normal condition la .re
stored, 1 f '. ".V ''y". 1 -v
These periods of change probably will
be something like: ten days each In du
ration and ... the experiments will be
made on from six fo ten persons at a
time In order to avoid anr Individual
peculiarity which might influence the
experiment should only one subject be
experimented on." : - ;
V An effort will be made to conduct th
experiments at one of tb educational
Institutions near Washington. Dr.
Wiley propose? to establish a "training
table." if he can secure permission to
do so. He will select perhaps a dozes,
healthy men who will be bound by their
word ofhonor not to eat anything ex
cept what is served at this table. Dur-(
ing a period of ten days or so the sole,
object of Dr. Wiley and hla assistant
will be to get. tfie subjects into a nor
mally healthy condition. To do this
they will be fed with a healthful quan
tity of wholesome food in ordinary t-re.
' Following thla a certain chemical
borax, for Instance will be adminis
tered In the food served. For ten days
thla will be cntlnued and the effect
carefully noted. Then another pr
srratlve chem'caJL will be taken up and
thoroughly tried. ; After that some
substance uaed for coloring, and then
a nether, and so on down through - -the
list of the various ingredients used
every day tn the adulteration of foods
and ,lt coloration -and , preservation,
the effect of each on the system being
carefully noted. f. . "
. In this way tb? bureau of animal In
dustry hope to obtain enough on which
o base correct conclusion. . A special
report of the ! exot rlments i will be
duwn us and submitted to Congress
next inter and the recommendation
will be made for pure- food legislation.

Fashion, an English paper, speaking
of the centenary of trousers, says they
"came in" on accounC7of the high liv
ing prevalent. This produced a good
deal of gout, whose twinges the tight
fitting costume In use at that period
made unbearable. Hence the Invention
of the, wider form of garment, which
soon became .popular. Among the
"dandles" f that period, however, the
new style was regarded with. contempt,
and when Almack's was at Its height,
at a fashionable resort, tbe Duke, of
Wellington himself was once refused
admission because he presented him
self In trousers Instead of the orthodox
nether garments. . ':,..
