Denny " the coldest Winter we Ever on the sound in 1861-62. I then carefully observed my thermometer and Point reached was two degrees below Zero. It should be remembered that the amount or thickness of ice formed does not depend be much on the actual., degree of cold As on the duration of freezing weather and i think this fact accounts to some extent for the different estimates we get of cold weather when not based on instrumental observation. Then there May be a difference of several degrees in thermometers and quite As much in location or exposure hence we get contradictory reports. Of late years i have kept several thermometers by different makers and have compared them carefully to be sure there no great error in the instruments. With this preparation and a Northern exposure i have noted the following As the coldest Days for three Winters february 11, 1884, 6 degrees above Zero. December degrees above Zero. January u degrees above Tero. February 4 acid 10 degrees above Zero. The heaviest wind storm since the settlement of the country was on the night of november 16, 1875. This was Only a Strong Gale which threw Down considerable Timber and overturned Light structures such As Sheds and out buildings. It is Safe to assume that there Hue not been a Hurricane or Cyclone on the sound or West of the Cas Cade mountains for Ages if there Are no Marks to indicate it anywhere in the Timber. The Marks and course of a Hurricane could be plainly traced in the Timber of this country for hundreds of years. The deepest Snow Ever known Here in january. 1880, measuring four feet and a half after it had settled. It would have measured much More As it fell. I made inquiry of the indians and could gel no account of anything like it Takh and tie the Plant can give duing the latter two thirds of of Weir period of growth and moisture is better retained in the soil and the roots Are better shaded when the plants stand at comparatively uniform distances and the surface is made level than when the plants Are placed in drills arid the surface is thrown up into ridges. To use the Drill satisfactorily the ground must be put in Good condition and this probably explains Why there is a better yield from drilling. Not know of a Case where broadcasting and drilling Oats were tested Side by Side for several years that the broadcast ing did not give the better aggregate re turn. The Farmer is not advised Nover to Drill Oate but it would certainly be Best to make the trial on a limited scale for three or Lour years at East until the superiority of drilling is proven.

The evident interest manifested in the planting of fruit Trees throughout the entire state of Washington is encouraging. In no other state or territory with the single exception of California will there be As Large an acreage planted during 1690. The Quantity and Quality of fruit yields Are a Little better than anything recorded As a general Rule. Many of the single Trees in some Well kept washing ton or chants yield quadruple the value that Trees of same variety yield East. From present indications prunes Are taking the Lead heavily cherries Are being planted largely Peare also receive considerable notice in Finall heavy yields and the extreme adaptability of soil climate and rainfall to their successful cultivation mate openings for the Clearing of five and ten acre tracts by working men who have no regular location a profitable and healthful Ven Ture. The Facie that such amounts As t40d to h003 Niay readily be taken from an acre of Well established and thoroughly cultivated Small fruit will be a Strong incentive to lure irregularly employed men to enter the lists of Niit growers. No life offers such tempting inducements after the years of Clearing the land Are Well Over. No healthier avocation can be found than planting cultivating harvesting and marketing As connected with the Small fruit Industry. The Points with pleas. Ure to the myriad places that in a few years will be opened up by the Industry and Enterprise of settlers ousts in the mighty forests and Fertile Prairies of Washington and will be among its greatest resources. This should be impressed upon the readers of every paper in our Borders and they should be urged to Plant their Orchards now not in Tho Remote future. As was Well instanced recently in the Case of a 1 get sounder who Twenty years ago planted a Cherry tree which yielded a Revenue of about 2fl the past season. This Man planted be solitary Cherry tree yet he admits int he could just As Well have planted 00. At the same rate of return note lie handsome income yielded by a mall Orchard such As any Labouring Man Ould attend to ill his spare moments.

The Drill Wuh level oped earlier than the broadcast in Cdr Therp were better reasons for drilling ones than there Are now. Broad Beeders do the work so Well and be at Ficili moderate prices that it is unnecessary to Drill the Grain to have it evenly distributed oven in Windy weather. Harrows have Iwon much improved that Broa canted Grain May be nicely covered on any ground prop Erly prepared.

Require All Tho Rioin Linro they can nil american agriculturalists rip out the old sleeve linings press and Cut new ones by them. If the sleeves Are frayed around the hand you can either turn up the cloth for an Inch or less or if which is Likely they Are not Long enough to allow of this you can rip the hem or facing Loose Cut it in two where it is frayed and then put on a new lacing which will Only shorten the Bleeve by a single seam. Of course a machine is an essential article for All buc work Baste the facing carefully in place turn wrong Side out and steam press the seam by laying a cloth Over it and Vlinga heavy Iron hot As May be without scorching. You cannot do the pressing too Well. It is not sufficient to pass the Iron Over it. You must lean your weight on the Iron with patient firmness. Now seam up the linings and put them in Felling neatly around the shoulders before Blind stitching the hem about the hand. The linings of Coats Are generally Loose around the Bottoni and will greatly facilitate work on the pockets if not you must rip them Loose. If the pockets Are very much worn Cut 08 the bad places and seam on pieces of Stout Muslin of the exact pattern allowing for the teams. Sometimes tha Corners of the pockets Are torn Loose from the coat. Faster them Down to Strong stays on the wrong Side and press Well from both sides with a wet cloth Laid Over As be fort.1 now stitch Down on the right Side with the machine following the same line of stitching. Where the pocket joins the coat which generally faced with Fanner s Satin or cloth like the garment the facing sometimes becomes worn rip it off and fell on a new piece neatly. Buttons tear out taking bits of cloth with them. Here is a Chance for your very neatest work. Lay pieces of the cloth on the wrong Side Matching Stripe or plaid if any and fell Down on the wrong Side with stitches that do not go through turn on the right Side and Blind stitch Down All around the worn place press and sew the buttons on and even if the Patch is slightly larger than the Button it will not to noticed. There is a Black rubber Button ribbed exactly Tike the silk arid cloth buttons which Are so much used on men s suits and which give Euch poor Wear. They Cost from 10 to 15 cents a dozen and never Wear out. Wherever the lining is worn Baste under a piece of goods As near like it As possible Cut out the worn place turn in a seam and fell around neatly press from the wrong Side of the lining. The Mode of operation is the same for the Vest. You will probably have much Patching of linings to do. To repair trousers is the most difficult of All. They will doubtless be frayed at the Bottom in which Case proceed exactly As you did with the sleeves of the coat at the hand. If the seat is broken rip the seam Cut out the worn place and Cut a new piece by it allowing for seam Bottom and top. Baste in place seam on the machine and press. You must be careful to Cut the worn place straight across and in setting in the new piece try to have the cloth run exactly Tho same Way. The pressing is the most j essential part. If the Knees arc broken rip the leg seam and fix in the same Way but of course trousers thus patched cannot be worn to business As they can be on the farm. If these spots Are Sim ply worn and not broken Lay a piece of new cloth under on the wrong Side and fell Down then on Tho right aide and with silk of the same Shade darn Tho thin places. If this is done neatly and Well pressed it will not. Be noticed. Stitch up the scams again and press open on the wrong Side. Give the final pressing after cleaning with warm water to every quart of which you should add a tablespoonful each of no Monia and alcohol. You can make the fold Down the front by laying Tho legs on a Board right Side out with the seams exactly corresponding place a wet cloth Over nil press with a hot Iron clean and press the Coal and Vest and Yon will be surprised and so will your John by the new look of the whole suit.

The Large immigration that is now setting in with the and vent of Spring will nearly All be to Western Washington. People who Are looking for Homes no longer go to Cali fornia to Nebraska or Dakota. Of the thousands who Are coming to Western Washington the greater number naturally visit puget sound. It is one of the most Beautiful Inland seas of the world but the Farmer the business Man of moderate Means will have great difficulty in find ing a location along its shores. There agricultural land is scarce and in some counties an Alm St unknown Quantity. We invite this Large class to Lewis county where agricultural land is More plentiful than in any other county of Western Washington. There Are tributary to Centralia acres of Rich Bottom lands suitable for agricultural purposes. The prices paid for farm products Are very much higher than in the East and Lewis county farms yield a better profit on the invest ment than an Eastern farm of equal value. The Home Market demand the cause of the High Price of farm products has steadily increased in the past and seems destined to increase More rapidly in the future. While possessing More farm ing land than the sound Sec Tion the Timber land about Centralia is As dense and valuable As any in the United states. It is As yet almost untouched although seven saw Mills Are now located at Centralia. The longest log Ging Road from any of these Mills is Only two Miles while beyond this the unbroken Forest stretches to the Cas Cade Range Many Miles away. Though a few years ago the smallest Centralia is now the largest town of Lewis county the oldest settled county of the state. In the election of 1889, hotly contested Over All the county Centralia cast 173 More votes than Chehalis the county seat and for years the chief town of this Section. Centralia s share of the school apportionment based on the number of school children is much larger than that of any other town in the county. A conservative estimate places present population at the cause of this rapid in crease lies in Centralia s Cen trial location As the key to the Gray s Harbor country at the head of the Chehalis Val Ley Midway Between puget sound and the Columbia As shown by the map heading this Page. Much is also due to the Mou who have put ii the Many saw Shingle ant Mills Brick Yards etc., and to the pushing nun of business who advertise ii the Ciu Toniolo. Come and join them. Dewey Mcgiffert have decided to give the people of Centralia and Vicinity a Large Stock of clothing dry goods boots and sh01s, and to select from in making their purchases As they can find in any City in the state and if order to do so we have enlarged our store so that we now have Over double the space we formerly occupied.
