Passengers Who Missed
the Boat to States
At Taku Harbor, Alaska, onie
where beyond Juneau, there vere 17t
employes of a cannery, who wanted '
to return to the states eyre day a few
weeks ago. The only boat -that
makes this point is the Admiral Wat
son, which touches at the various
pors beyond Juneau once a moyth
during the summer. , -' (
On this particular day i the 17 ex
pectant persons did not know of the
exact time of the arrival of the Wat-
son, "which was bound for Seattle.;
They wanted-to return, but were not
ready, and the boat could not" wait
for them; " They had to wait one
month in that dreary habitation for
the next trip of the Watson, when
they could return td the states. (
Mjsses Hermine Blessing and''
Alice West, Omaha school teachers,
witnessed the incident and were '
sorry for the group that wa"s left at
Taku. Miss Blessing related that
this incident was typical of the un
certainties of life in Alaska. "
Hankering to Return.
These teachers went to Alaska on
their summer vacation. They" took
passage on the Wason, which is a
freighter, and the only boat plying
as far, north as Anchorage and other
points 3,000 miles from Seattle.
The boat was laden "on the out

in 'grinding ore a(jd on the home

salmon. Thtre were 162 iir the crew,
142 cabin passenger and 42 in the
steerage. Miss Blessing related that
the tin cans in which the salmon Was
packed, attracted the boat's compass1
"'They say up there in laska that
when a person gets there once there
is. a hankering to return, but I was
not stricken with any desire to re
turn, aHiough there is much that is
interesting for the sightseer," said

The problem of keeping hogs from
overeating in hot weather is a hard
one. Overloading is especially dan
gerous. The American farm bureau
federation has recently made a study
of conditions and urges shippers to
use every precaution in marketing
their Wgs during the summer. f
It is advised that not more than
the minimum l5ad, which 17,000
pounds for a single deck, 36-foot ear
be put 111 one car. It is peips
better to load according to the size
ot the hogs, and a good'guide to fol
low is to fill each car with 130 to
135 hogs weighing 100 pounds; 95
to 100 weighing 150 pounds; -82
to 85 weighing 200 pounds, and 70
to 72 weighing 250 pounds each.
Another cause of losses is over
feeding before loading. This shuuld
be especially-guarded a.eainst in n t
weather. Hogs. ship much better and
fill well after tliev reach the niatk't
if given a dry, bulky l ed with ple"tv
ot fresh water ust before DS'iig
loaded. Oats or wheat middlings are
recommended bv ma"v shippe-s.
slope -should neVer be given after
thev leave the feci lot.
Cleaning the cars and bedding
them with about two inches of sand
help greatly. Before loading the
hogs the sand should Ije sprinkled
with water. Avoid loading hogs
when they are hot Icing cars also

A bungalow, strictly speaking, is a

Shingles for. the side walls are ad
visable only in rare instances for
reasons of appearance, cost of up

ward the sun, not away from it. If
the sun room is used as an enclpsed
porch in summerawniugs easily and
cheaply make it comfortable. In
winter the sum room bathed in sun
shine is a highly desirable place.',

which has caused much annoyance
to middle-west , farmers for years,
wilk do much toward stopping" the

lsts believe. There is probablyvno
better way to eradicate the Canada
Liistle than by continually cutting
the tops of the plant as soon as they
spring up. This eventually will kill
the roots that are extremely 'tough
and hardv. 1
With this, as well as all other
plants, the plant food is mmiufac

plant is finally destroyed. This
method is simple, practical, effective'
and the real secret of success in
fighting the thistle or any other
weed with similar root development.
If the thistle is aflowed to grow it
spreads rapidly. A single plant, if
allowed to go to seed, will be suffi
cient to spread the thistle over many
acres within a few years. -
Where thereaTe only a few plants
it may be desirable to use chemicals.
Flant experts have found carbolic
acid about the best and ' cheapest
remedy. , The tops should be cut off

Some squirt pure acid on the ex

in smothering the thistle. Another
