Mountain, hill and vale gave up itnuota Wednesday of those who wenl In Wenatchee to see the boodle cop prra of the county seat and the clodhoppers of Cashmere In the Olympian rontesi for the championship of Chi h.r in the same made Infamous b,, tin double-dyed gamblers of Chicattn nml New York in the national mar.i Hkiii nf a couple years ago. The white, black, red, yellow and brown v.i re on the grounds "a rarin" to s"e emeone slaughtered. The summei irirls, grandmothers, irreat .-m ni . maiden ladies, bachelor prirls. friend wife; the balii-heads, old-heads. Chollyboys, sheepherda and the Wild Man from Borneo— all were there. The preliminaries wore duly enacted or approved or vetoed as the differenl party conventions had ordained ami at 5:16 what was left of thr noted Hal Starks after his latest plunge ambled out and arose to a point of order and the disorder broke loose at once. Cashmere came t<> hat and were he noohled upj but when Wenatchee c-;mir to the scratch they also were soon holed up; but when Wenatchee til the sth order of business was reached. Then after Cashmere had been voted down the county seat bunch finding themselves slightly In the majority changed the house rules nnd voted themselves the hest men by "tie. The Cashmere crowd came back and denied it. but it was not until thp ninth that they were able to carrj their point and convince the country as well as (heir opponents thai this If a free country and what one set of men can do any other can do. The tenth and eleventh rounds prove 1 futile for both sides and the shades of night descending, !>y unanimous consent and special stipulation, the pension dosed with the usual prayer v >uch gatherings: "We'll get you fellows yet." uttered in unison and low breath by all participants, the auditors dissenting or kicking or grumbling about the umpire's decisions, The game was one of the best ever witnessed, It was no! a pitcher's battle luil one of considerable stick- Work and splendid support, both teams having loft their error haps at home and but a few (about three) jumping out of individual players pockets on so many occasions. The pitchers both wen' in good form, however, and gave excellent exhibitions, McLean Tor Cashmere striking out i long list. Harris for Wenatch lid not strike out as many as his opponent, but he seemed to hold them to fi wer hits. These two teams will no doubt follow the slogan of U. S. Grant and fight the battle out if i| takes a 1! summer — and a "war weary" (we ilont think) little old world will *vatch and applaud.

Partly through accideni ami partly through experlmentation he finally discovered that thin- ' ning ritfht down to a few boxes on ' each tree would result in the large, red apples he desired and that the tires would hear every year, and from that time on he has been very successful. In the thinning demonstration ho astonished many by the seeming ruthless manner in which he cut away the small apples until each tree carried hut a small fraction of what it had contained. The demonstration, it is believed, will he of great value to thr industry ir this community. A large crow I was ))resent. MARRIED. The marriage of W. .1. 11. Mclntosh, .>on of Mr. and Mrs. VVm.

The government railway labor board has extended its wage reduction order I" rowr 210 roads, effective July l. This order puts Into ci' fret a cut averaging \'i''<, hut it in understood that the mails, or many of them, have announced a cut in wages which averages about double thai amount, It is also understood that many of the railroad worker* have decided that it is proper to accept tlio cut announced by the railway labor board, hut that the cut made bj tin roads will not be accepted. The unions have been voting upon this matter and it is probable that they will itrike, rather than accept the l>i>r cut. The Leavenworth men, we understand, are strongly in favoi of .1 itrike if the road attempts t.> pul Into effect a cut larger than tlr ■■ made by the labor board. The men are not laying much. The vote has been taken, however, and from the meagre information gained it i- expected that there will be a tieup. The cut niade by the governmen board koos into effect today and it it understood that the larger cut ii to I become effective at the same time. If j this be true the strike may come at . once. Later, we are informed that the cut is expected to effect only shop, office and section men, and not trainmen. I' la also reported a* coming from St. IV.ul that the cut will not be made efleetive thii year. 1.. J. IV I'osia Ii recovering rapid■ ly from his broken arm, but it will Ir.

World: An orchard piped r<>:-n| raying, thus eliminatinK the porl able spraying rig pulled bj horses ■>; a tractor, i- the realization of an idea >t William Miis.- of Sunnyslope. It came to him five or six years ago Unit running ipray material through pipe-t under pressure, JU3I as water is run through underground mains in a city, Would He economical. Km (hat reason, he 'liil not purchase a spray i-i, 1. Hut has employed others to do his spraying. This spring lie brought his idea to fruition, and installed the pipe line ami pumping station. It Works satisfactorily. Mr. Moss has built a 1000 gallon concrete mixing tank just below his irrigation pump. The walls of th:s< tank are six Inches thick. Besides it i- operated by the same electric moto which operates the irrigation pump. It is the work of a minute to shift the bell from one pump to the other. From this concrete lank, pipes ::■< out to all parts of the orchard. In tlic mixing tank is a shaft with three propeller-like blades, to agitate the mixture. This is rotated by the s] ray pump as In the ordinary sprayei rig. A pipe lead.- from the irrigation pump, and by the turn of a valve, water is diverted to the mixing tank. There arc two main one Inch galvanized Iron pipes that serve most of tin orchard. These pipes arc burie I ten inches, At 160 fool intervals a>e stbmlpipes. Below the high line canal serving a small section of the or chard, arc three-quarter inch pipe "The chief advantage nf this sy tern, says Mr. Moss, is that it ieconomical. It sa\es the mainton of horses or a tractor to pu'l the sprayer wagon, It is nol nece* sary In have a wagon. H laves the time used to haul npray rigs hack an ' forth from the . filling station, li saves time in mixing, inasmuch as thj concrete tank holds 1000 gallons, „ live times as much as an ordinal.■ pcrtable tank-. It saves the wear ami tear on machinery incidental to mo\ ing it about over rough ground. It saves the damage to irrigating ditchet>. It saves damage to alfalfa. II saves the damagp ti> branches cause ! by the scraping of the wagon against them. It save- the labor of one man. who ordinarily drives the spray wagon "Further, it gives the udvantag ' steady work. There are fewer broa!< downs than when a portable riir ured. The machinery is lirmlj mounted on concrete liases, and imore easily kept efficient. The pr -ure is more steady, because an electric motor is used instead of an ignition engine." The whole installation cost M.-. Moss about $760,-or less than a portable spray rig coats, lie used 230(1 feel of one-inch galvanized iron pip and (50 feet of three-quarter inch pipe. He uses rubber hose 100 feel long to reach the trees. The «pra pump is the same as thai used on the portable rig, Each standpipe serven a block of 10 tIVPS. One man may use the spray. \\ Mi a portable riir two muni ordinarily l>.' 11-ed. Several nei«hi)orM of Mr. Moss plan to Install similar plantx next sprinjr.
