Bee disease can be checked.
The many and varied accounts of a new bee disease that has been creating a great deal of attention in our amount of apprehension among the bee keepers of our state has caused us to interview C. G. Wilford Jr., the leading apiarist of this section of the state.
Mr. Wilford is the owner of the Maplevine Honey Farm, at Holcomb, Washington and is an apiarist of considerable note and has brought his apiary located near this city up to a standard of paractical perfection that has been widely commented on.
Fine specimens of grain.
E. W. Lilly brought in from his Menlo farm Wednesday some fine samples of the field peas, buckwheat, wheat and other grains which will be put on exhibition for Milwaukee Day. The Commercial Club should have constantly on hand specimens like Mr. Lilly brought in to show strangers who visit the city and are interested in the farm produce grown here. It would make mighty effective advertising.

Food stamp plan set up for county.
President Lyndon B. Johnson announced Sunday from the LBJ Ranch on the Pedernales that Pacific County will be among the 74 counties in 24 states which will go on the food stamp plan on November 1.
Thurston County will join Pacific in the change. The food stamp plan already is in operation in Grays Harbor County.
The food stamp program permits low income families to buy coupons they can use to purchase food in local grocery stores. They get a bonus which depends on need.
The stamps replace the distribution of free surplus food. Those on public assistance have a certain amount of their check, about one third, earmarked for food.
This part of the check must be spent for the food coupons.
