4 OVERPRODUCTION OF APPLES.
' The point has been raised by many
wbo have visited sections of the west
where large areas are being planted to
apple trees nuder conditions whicb
make possible the production of a
maximum quantity of fruit of the high-
est quality whether so many trees arc
'being set as to result In a serious over-
production and a reduction of present
prices to the point where there will be
little or nothing left for the grower
after necessary expenses and freight
charges have been met. The question
Is one which may and should be taken
Into account, but does not seem to fur-
nish cause for alarm for a good many
years to come. Among some reasons
for this attitude may !><• mentioned the
fact that many orchards in .New Eng-
land, Michigan. Missouri, Arkansas
and lesser apple states arc past their
Vrime cither through advanced age,
insect and fungous pests or lack of
tillage of the soil and arc today pro-
ducing less fruit than in years goue by
nnd will produce less in the future
than now. Coupled with this decline
of old orchards is a quite limited plant-
ing of new trees in I lie sections men-
tioned. This means that much of the
western planting will be required to
take the place of orchards that are
now doing business in other sections.
Another factor to be taken into con-
sideration is that the highest grade
frnit wherever produced never comes
Into competition with that which is
undersized, undereolored. scabby and
wormy. It is likely, too. that should
Ihere be an enormous Increase ill the
production of high quality apples the
well organized frnit growers' associa-
tions will take pains to see before that
time comes that a market is developed
at home or abroad where the surplus
can he disposed of at good prices, in
fact, this is already being done, a de-
mand having been created for Amer-
ican apples in a number of Kuropean
«nd Asiatic countries. A last factor
that may he taken into account is that
even under the most favorable condi-
tions of climate and soil there will al-
ways be many who through lack of
knowing how or of forethought and
Industry will not lie able to maintain
their orchards or ranches on a profit-
able basis. Another commendable safe-
guard will be to set only the best varie-
ties of apples, so I hat in seasons of
heavy crops the fruit produced may
be disposed of at remunerative prices.
THE SCHOOLHOUSE WELL.
A reader who lives in a township in
which there are no wells on any of
the eight or nine school grounds in
the area calls attention to the fact that
there ought io lie wells, made frog and
mouse tight, so that the boys and girls
would have a convenient and pure wa-
ter supply and would not have to Ixilb-
♦•r neighbors In the vicinity going after
water and oflen leaving gates unfas-
tened and windmill out of gear. He
makes the further suggestion that it
would be advantageous all around if
the schoolhouse well were located just
outside I he fence beside the road, so
thai it could lie used not only by the
school population, but also by travel-
ers along the hltihway. who. if a small
trough were provided, would ttnd It
very convenient for the watering of
1beir horses or In furnishing a drink
for themselves. A distinct advantage
cf this over tile usual location would
lie that with the increased use of the
water it would keep fresher and purer
aud be much less liable to become
fouled through disuse during vacation
AN OREGON MOSSBACK.
One old mosshack who lives in an
Oregon fruit valley, whose case was
reported to us not long since, sold out
a short time ago and moved out of
the state because the fruit ius|iector
insisted that lie spray his fruit trees.
'The old codger said he'd be hanged if
he'd slay in a state where lie couldn't
enjoy personal liberty nnd do as he
pleased, it is the discouraging of the
type of horticulture ibat men of this
character would follow if left to them-
selves thai Is largely responsible for
the splendid reputation a number of
western states are making as produ
rers of gilt edged fruit. If other cell
tral and eastern stales would go after
this proposition In the same hammer
and tongs fashion a long step would be
taken toward putting horticulture on
a rational basis.
CHItIA WAKING UP.
Prospects are certainly brightening
In China, as shown in the recent deci-
sion of the government to establish
agricultural schools In Manchuria,
where • uug men of agricultural tastes
limy mint themselves with better
met i■ f farming. The crops to

Ihi rodn"ed in the northern part of

Ihe total yield is a trifle less than
0.000,000 bushels below that of last
year, the yield per acre is 1.1 bushels
A good many folks will burn kero-
sene lamps all night, with the doors
and windows closed, and then wonder
why they feel thick beaded and dull in

ousness and indigestion, when the
thing is a plain case of cause aud
Unadulterated milk should contain
about 87 per cent of water and 13
per cent of solids. It also contains
bacteria whicb hasten the sourlug and
ripening processes. The number of
harmful bacteria whicb it tnay contain
depends largely upon the degree of
cleanliness observed in handling it.
Danish dairymen seek to head off an
infection of their calves by tubercu-
losis by removing them from their
dams at once if the latter are found
to be tuberculous. This malady is one
that is not inherited at birth, but con-
tracted by drinking germ laden milk.
Thus removal and giving the calves
pure milk insure their healthy develop-
It is estimated that 300,000 people in
all registered for the land drawings
held in Spokane, Billings and Coeur
d'Alene. if each person on the aver-
age silent $20 in car fare nnd hotel
bills to make the trip to one of the
three places the process of registering
alone cost In the aggregate $0,000,000.
This is a good round sum and would
have bought 00,000 acres of land at
$100 per acre.
It has been found as a result of ex-
periments iu sections where peat soils
prevail that the application of a good
supply of barnyard manure will do
much to make them workable and will
set bacterial life to working, which
will make their fertilizer content avail-
able for plant life. In this respect nat-
ural fertilizers seem to lie much more
effective than commercial fertilizers,
which are of an inorganic nature.
Cold storage experiments which have
been conducted by the pomological di-
vision of the department of agriculture
seems to show quite conclusively that
apples will keep most perfectly in
storage which are picked when full
ripe and a minimum of the starch con-
tent is turned to sugar. The keeping
quality of the fruit is further increased
by the carefulest possible handling in
picking and packing and placing in
storage as soon as may be after pick-
ing. it was found that underripe
fruit tended to shrink in storage and
lost much of its sweetness ami flavor.
Trials which have been made with
"hogging down" corn by experiment
stations and individual feeders seem
to demonstrate quite clearly that a
corn crop fed in this way is handled
with the least possible expense, while
the hogs make more rapid gain in
weight than under any oilier system
of feeding. This is a somewhat rare
Goats have lately been used In the
Lassen national forest iu California for
the purpose of denuding strips of land
of vegetation to make tire lines. Not
only do the goals ent vegetation of al-
most every description, but they have
been known to tear bark loose froui
good sized trees aud strip it up a
dozen or more feet.
Venezuela has 200.000 acres devoted
to the raising of coffee. The number
of plantations is 33.000 and the annual
product about 50.000 tons. Argentina,
the great wheat granary of South
America, exported 80.tl72.il00 bushels
of wheat from Jan. I to Aug. 1. This
is about 32,000,000 more bushels than
for the corresponding period last year
Light clothing aud cool drafts of wa-
ter are just as refreshing for Utile ba
hies iu hot weather as for grown folks,
and a lot of their fretfulness and cry
ing during the healed season are very
likely due to the tart that their needs
in these two particulars are not given
the attention they deserve. Itabies
have feelings the same as old folk-,
but aren't endowed with capacity to
kick np as much disturbance if their
wants are disregarded.

with constant worry left me in
such a nervous state that finally,
after having two collapscs of

There are many nervous

There is but one thing to do—
build up the nervous system by
the use of Dr. Miles' Restora-

Out* of Ihe first thing* that strike
the attention nf ilit* eastern tourist In
California is the extensive us«« of rruile
petroleum sis :i substitute for roal.
Steam engines have an oil tank instead
of a coal tender, the oil being drawn
from elevated tanks in the same way
that water is for the supply steam.
Manufacturing plants not operated by ty
electricity use the crude oil almost ex-
clusively. as do ocean and river steam-
boats as far north as Seattle. The
crude oil is also used extensively in
sprinkling railroad tracks, suburban
streets and country roads, and when
the road is once "made" but a single
application of oil is needed in eight or
ten months to keep it in excellent
shape. The discovery of oil in C'ali

The Turkish red variety of winter
wheat is being sown this fall by many
a farmer in the small grain belt who'
has not raised a bushel of wheat on Ills
place for a score of years or more.
Among the advantages of substituting j
winter wheat for oats iu a crop rota-
tion may l>e mentioned the fact that
where conditions are at all favorable
it will give a larger net return per
acre than oats, while it matures two
weeks earlier than early oats, enabling
one to turn under the stnbble early
aud thus keeping myriads of weeds
from maturing a crop of seed. Where
one wishes to make a fall sowing of
alfalfa, winter wheat makes an excel-
lent preceding crop, as there is time to
give the land several disk lugs before
the alfalfa Is sown. With conditions
st all favorable there should be a
yield of from twenty fire to tbirty-
Ave bushels per <r \ while the price
