We thought we were through with patent medicine ads, but it took all of our persuasive power and most of our reserved patience to refuse the persist- ent entreaties of one of the H. E. Buck- lea Co's. agents this week. Now we aren't posin a a model., neither are W 'O]'J,: t3 pG'nt out, a .v ,:= say to ohers "follow thou that" but we are going to give to the people the best paper and the most interesting read- ing matter that we are able to give, and we do not consider the average pat- ent medicine ad. as such. Other pap- ers may "fool the surgeons" with the ,'appetite of a goat," and give "cold steel or death" to readers who have "robbed the grave," spend "a night of terror" with "a monster devil fish" or make "a frightful blunder" "red hot from the gun," or "work night and day" to give "the glorious news" of a "story of a slave" "discovered by a woman" wa " of which "millions given a y caused "Bismark's iron nerve," which had of- :ten "prevented a tradegy" and made "brave men fall," feel as if it had gone through a "powder mill explosion," but we will not print such stuff nor do we, by not printing it, as the agent said, down our druggist and refuse him space in our paper. Fortunately we have a sensible druggist in Harrington who sees the folly of putting a lot of trash before the people just to call heir attention to one article. The H. E. Budklen Co's. medicines are good but their advertising matter is not what we choose to print.--Harrington Citizen. ,it .  .- How Salmon Spawn Is Secured. A very interesting description is con- tained in the annual report of the Fish Commission of how spawning fish are caught at the hatchery stations in Ore- gon and Washing ton, and how the eggs are extracted and cared for until they hatch. In this connection the report says: , "The fish are captured by means of a downstream trap, which consists of a box about 20 feet wide and 18 inches deep, made of slats placed two inches apart, anchored in midstream. The end Of the trap pointing upstream is weigh- ed to the bottom of the river and a dam or rack extends from its two sides to within a few feet of either bank. The fish ascending the stream pass around the rack to the spawniug grounds above, and as soon as a sufficient number have collected, a seine is drawn down- stream at a rapid rate Although salmon always swim against the current, when frightened they turn and go . down stream at a rap- id rate, and as a result they are brought to a halt high and dry upon the lower end of the trap. They are quickly as- sorted and placed in pens near the traps, the males and females being put in sep- the light On the first, second and] third days the dead eggs are picked off, I after which they are uncovered for at least thirty days, provided the water is clear. At the expiration of this they are placedin water buckets and a strong i current of waterturned on, which caus- es all of the unimpregnated eggs to turn white, while it does not injure the good ones. After the dead eggs have been removed the remainder are returned to the baskets "As the result of a number of experi- ments, the conclusion was reached that an avcwge of 825 eggs remain in a sal- mon after it has been stripped by the usual operation, and of, these 48 per cent might be impregnated, or 400 eggs per fish; and consequently, had all the eggs been emoved through an incision made in the abdomen 859,000 more fry could have been hatched. The experi- ments seem to demonstrate that where the eggs are removed through an incis- ion and fertilized immediately before the blood is removed the loss would be aeut 2 2 " eel*., "::h"e:t ', [f U': LI':;  is quickly rinsed off before hi-,,; irmb Is applied the loss is very heavy, some- times averaging 99 per cent. Of the eggs remaining after the fish has been stripped by the usual method, only 48 per cent could be fertilized when they were removed through an incision "On on e salmon weighing about 40 lbs. a lump as large as a man's head was ob- served immediately under the dorsal fin. The lump was found to consist part- ly of a gristly growth resembling a tu- mor and partly of a gelatinous sub- stance, the former being of a light col- or and the later of about the same shade as the fish. The eggs from this fish were good, and the lump had apparent- ly not interfered at all with its locomo- tion. A male was also observed with all the characteristics of a female. Another fish with jaws crossed in such a way as to resemble a pair on shears was noted. The bones seemed not to have been broken" Bagpipes on Sheep Ranches.

For six days a week Mnce June, a workman had been engaged, in cut- tint and polishing the largest dia- mond ever :brought to this country. One day lately it was finished, says a New Y.ork exchange. The final bit of polishing was done in a workshop at No. 147 West Fourteenth street, and the diamond was ready for the market. Like all large diamonds, this en.e has a name. It is called the E:nestine, and as such is destined to l)ecome famous. The Ernestine has a history. In the days when Baden-Powell and his small band of men were besieged by the Boers in Kimberley, the Kaf- firs were keptbusy in the mines. In' what might be termed the height of the s:.egv the big diamond was found.

Well, says the Cincinnati En-  quirer, the first effect would be rather I'/ social and moral than commercial, though, of course, it wou!d react very strongly on the business world.
