GIVE GREATEST SATISFACTION, The acme of cycling comfort and delight is in store for the purchaser of a Columbia Bicycle* It has no equal* Its speed on track and road has been too TO ALL Standard of the World, The ir*ywf taw. A San Francisco correspondent of the Chicago flecotd wHtes to that journal as follows: "We were traveling in Sisklyotl county, that northern pftft of the state which geographically is a part of California, but commercially ifi a pan of Oregon. It is a wild and sparsely settled region, with only here and there a half-cultivated ranch and an occasional mining camp. *'lt was one of the latter we reached about nightfall. We were directed to the principal hotel in the place, a roughly boarded, two-story building, of which the most prominent feature of its internal arrangement was the barroom, which was also the office, and contained in one corner a .wooden sink provided with a paper bucket filled with water, two or three tin washbasins and a couple of community towels hung on rollers. '•'Supper was ready when we arrived and we were directed at once to a long room with a low ceiling— the dining- room— in which about twenty roughly dressed men, most of them in their shirt sleeves and apparently miners, lumbermen and teamsters, were seated at three or four long tables. The tables were covered with oil cloth. The tableware was very thick and heavy ironstone china, much cracked and chipped. The knives and forks were steel, with handles discolored and cracked from rough usage and hot dishwater. Near each end of the table was a set of casters, originally, doubtless, quite showy with silver plating, but at this period much the worse for the wear of the plating. "The dining-room girl who came to wait on us rattled off the bill of fare in exactly the same way that dining- room girls do in ten thousand other hotels all over this broad land. As she received our orders she slid the big butter dish from its place hear the middle of the table over toward us, saying: 'Here's your substitute butter,' at the same time taking from one of the casters, where they were kept, like the bills of fare in cheap restaurants, pieces of cardboard about the size and shape of the ordinary restaurant bill of fare. She laid one of these down on the table beside each of us and started for the kitchen. Wondering slightly at this, we each picked up the cardboard laid before us, and this is what we read: Mr. T. Oelfief, one of AmeHea's leid- ittg authorities, say a: "fr6f some years t have been using and recommending obftcco dust as an all-round insect tie- troyef. t usfe it in the greenhouse for ice (aphis), in the open ground tot the ucumb«r bettle, ,plBnt lice, find for worms of all kinds, and sometimes in he hen-house for lice, etc. It is Surely one of the swiftest of fill insecticides we can apply.*f Most or fuliy equal to buhach. If si!te'A of scattered otef ctiiv rant bushes the currant worms will curl up and die, and the bushes Will be free from the pest within an hour of less, and fall from them for gome time, If blown into the heart of cabbage plants t means the end of the green worm. Applied in the same way to the nests of the caterpillars (and the trees all around us at this time are full of them) especially in the morning of evening, wh^n the Worms arc all at hotie, it will clear them out for good in less than an hour, in short, I hardly knbw what worm or other soft-bodied insect the contact with tobacco dust would not speedily kill. 1 believe it will even put attend to the potato bug. It is dls^ nsteful lo many burd shell beetles also, as may be seen by the fact that With icavy applications we can drive away he cucumber beetle (and perhaps the squash bug).' The flea beetle, unfortunately, is not so easily conquered, even if it does not like tobacco smell, Surely, :ohacco dust must be considered a most excellent insecticide, nud as it is not eX' pensive (in some cases, perhaps, the sweepings of cigar factories, etc., will do and can be had for the hauling). I think every soil tiller should keep it on hand. J. have usually applied tobacco dust with the bare hands, scattering it rather freely over the bushes and plants, and around cucumbers, melon and squash vines, even an inch deep on the ground. The stuff is worth nearly tho full price asked for it ($3 per barrel, or so) as a fertilizer, and 1 have not felt tho necessity of using it in a particularly economical manner. For cabbage and caterpillar nests, however, hand bellows of some kind are almost necessary, as .we want to blow the dust well amongst the leaves and the webs. The ordinary cheap hand bellows, as offered for sale by seedsmen nnd hardware stores, will do .very, well for cab- The butter served here is but- terine. Percentage, of ingredients is as"follows: ' Creamery butter 25 Neutral 20 Butter oil 10 Oleo oil 35 Cream, milk and salt 10 Total .......1.100 "By the time we had finished reading this the girl returned with our supper. When she had arranged the various dishes in front of us we asked her what she had given us this chemical analysis of our butter product for. Without a word, but. with a gesture of impatience, she turned the cardboards over, and we read: " 'This notice is given in conformity with sections 3 and 7 of an act of the legislature- of California, approved March 9, 1895, entitled an "Act to prevent deception in the manufacture and sale of butter and of cheese, to secure its enforcement and to appropriate money therefor," "'Sec. 3, Each person who, by himself or another, lawfully manufactures any substance designed to be used as a substitute for butter or cheese, shalf prepare a statement, printed in plain Roman type of a size not smaller than pica, stating in the English language its name and the name and address of the manufacturer, the name of the place where manufactured or put up and also the names and actual percentages of the various ingredients used in ithe manufacture of-8Uch !% imJtaUon'But- ter or imitation ch,eese.

T.h!« ' 8 ?B fiU «b tfl "" flM What Foreit Tree* to Plant. The question' arises, what shall we plant? There are so many general kinds of tree? and varieties of each that the matter is very much simplified when we know that the number of species a<Hpted to any soil and locality is comparatively few. Prof. Brewer of Yale college, In ' Walker's Statistical Atlas, says that in the United States we have only 300 indigenous species that in full growth reach thirty feet in height, and in the region including our own state we have but sixty to sixty-five species that reach fifty feet' in height".' " Different species are found on different geological strata, so that in connection with the question "what to plant?" we may profitably consult our geology.and original forest growth. Other species may do well, but we must prove them before trying them extensively. Our original forests have furnished excellent timber of white, burr, red and yellow oak, two or three species of ash, black walnut, chestnut, etc., etc., each of which, if planted well and cared for would, In a comparatively short time, furnish timber for many purposes. Then, we have several species of conl- ferae, as pines, spruces' and larches, each of which lias, been tried in other countries, and" soraeSvhat in this, an:! have'done-well.-These could be tried on soils not too fertile, and will succeed, Larches especially will grow almost anywhere. One man in Nantuckel planted 10,000 in 1877. The locust has been tried and does well; but beet oi all, perhaps, Is the Catalpa speclosa, or hardy catalpa as it is known and distinguished from blgnouloides, which is much less hardy, and of which it Is a variety.
