Or., Tuesday, December 27, atlO o'clock
"Kvery fruit grower should attend.
We want some legislation for the bene'
fit of our fruit industry. Our represen

introduce and uphold before our legis

any bill upon which our fruit growers
"G. B. Castner was appointed on
me legislative committee at the .North
west Fruit Growers' association, held in
Portland last January, and he desires to
act as your servant in any matter of leg
islation for the fruit growers of Oregon.
"Fellow fruit growers, why not put
nooa Kiver at tna top 01 horticultural
legislation? Our state horticultural laws
are inadequate for the advancement we
are making in growing the finest appless
mm verriea w,e nuriu call pruuuce.
"We must have better protection by
law to maintain the high standard we
now possess. Our horticultural board
must have more legal power and more

"Do we want a county fruit inspect
"Do we want wormy apples sold in
the open markets of Oregon?
"Do we want apples covered with
San Jose scale, to be sold in our mar
kets when other states will not permit
"Do we want any legislation to pro
tect the innocent fruit tree buyer from
the wiles of the nurseryman who has
always trees true (?) to name?
"What penalty ould you give the
fruit grower lor selling scions untrue
"Would you regulate the size of ap
ple boxes by law.or should the grower be
allowed make the box fit the apples?
"Would you favor a prohibitive law
relative to selling fruit from one dis
trixtrict under the name of another,
either directly or indirectly?
"Would you favor a local option herd
law by which fruit districts such as ours
rould tear down our codlin moth-brood-inii-peiis,
known as fences, posts, rails,
"These questions and many more are
worthy of careful thought and action.
Come out and let us reason together.

Will Complete Warehouse This Week.
Stranahan & Bagley, the local agents
for the Wasco Warehouse Milling com
pany of The Dalles, will havo their new
warehouse about completed by the end
of this week. The building is located
near where the former warehouse stood
before tha fire of last August, on the
north side of the railroad track, a little
to the weBt of the passenger depot.
Superintendent O'Brien has promised
Messrs. Stranahan & Bagley a spur of
sutlicient length to hold three or four
cars. From the end of the track east
ward there will bo ample room for
teams to drive in and secure the loads
of grain, Hour and feudstuffs. The
warehouse will have a length of 70
feet and a width of 32. In the north
east corner there will be an office room,
10x12, neatly fitted up.
A four-foot platform will extend full
length on the south and east sides of
the warehouse. Jut inside the main
entrance there will be floor scales.
The warehouse will hae a capacity of
several carloads of flour and grain.
"Hood River is one of the best sale
towns of the Northwest for the products
of the Warco Warehouse and Milling
company," says C. H. Stranahan, "and
vou will find them dying hard before
fiey can be foned out f the eity."
Low Water at Cascade Locks.
N. D. Sanford, a commission mer
chant from Cascade Locks who was in
Hood River Saturday, says that the
reports that the Columbia river below
the loc.kg ig tilling up with sand is true.
1 lie river at this point is eo shallow that
steamlx ats cannot navigate with a full
cargo. In the opinion of Mr. Sanford
there will have to be some government
work done below the locks, unless the
sand is carried away by the high water.
The sawmill of the Wind River Lum
ber company is again in operation, hav
ing been running now for two weeks.
The timber for this mill comes from the
north side of the Columbia. Mr. San
ford savs the company lopt a large num
ber of jogs in the recent freshet in Wind
'o More Suffering.
If you are troubled with indigestion
get a bottle of Kodol Dyspepsia Cure
and see how quickly it will cure you.
Geo. A. Thompson.of Spencer, la., says:
"Huve had dyspepsia for twenty years.
My case was almost hopeless. Kodol
Dyspepsia Cure was recommended and
I used a few bottles of it and it Is the
only thingthat has relieved me. Would
not be without it. Have diictorert with
local physicians and also at Chicago,
und even went to Norway with hopes
of getting some relief, but Kodol Dys
pepsia Cure is the only remedy that
lias done me any good, and I heartily
recommend it. Every person suffering
with Indigestion or Dyspepsia should
use it." Sold by U. E. Williams.
Mosler Apples go to the Fair.
Ig Wasco county going to lie heard
from at the Lewis and Clark fair? If
the court knows herself; and she do.
While the county court is looking after
the county exhibit, Fruit Commissioner
Weber is doing some tall hustling for
the fourth district. This morning he
shipped 100 boxes of apples to the Lewis
and Clark 6tate commission at Portland,
most of which were raised at Mosier and

The Key That Unlocks the Ditor.
The men of etgty-five and ninety
years of age are not the rotund well fed
But thin spare men who live on a slen
der diet. Be as careful as he will, how
ever, a man past middle age, will occa
sionally eat too much or of some article
of food not suited to his constitution,
and will need a dose of Chamberlaiu's
Stomach and Liver Tablets to cleanse
and invigorate his stomach and regu

A Cerlaiii Care for Croup.
When a child sbuwa symptoms of
croup there la no time to experiment
with new remedies, no matter how
highly they may be recommended.
There is one preparation that can always
be depended upon. It has been in use
for many years and baa never been
known to fil,viz: Chamberlain's Cough
Kennedy. Mr. M. r . Common or Mar

Chamlierlaln's Congh Remedy In se

The electric lights are now what they
should be. The light company is pleased
ana so are their patrons. An electn
cian was called Sunday night to doctor
the generator, and after he had turned
a screw or two, and stuck in a little
piece of wire, lo! and behold, there was
an improvement in the brilliancy of
the lights, it was possible to read
newspaper without straining the eyes
Manager Davidson says additional
poles will be put in now, and light ser
vice supplied to those who are in reaili
nets to receive the same. Owing to the
limited amount of "juice" on hand fur
the past couple of weeks, the company
believed they owed it to their old pat
rons to give them all they could before
dividing what they had with new cus
tomera; hence the delay in selling more

BUY A TICKET FOR
Have you bought a ticket for the fire
men's Benefit ball, New Year's eve?
They are going like hot cakes, and you
don t want to miss an opportunity to
help along a good tiling like the nooa
River volunteer firemen.
The ball will be held in the opera
house on Saturday evening, December
31. Sherman Frank, Will Sheets,
Billy Shipman and Will Morgan consti
tute the committee on arrangements.
George W. Thompson and Mrs. Kinsey

Three hundred tickets have been

proceeds ot the evening will go toward
the purchase of parayhernalia for the
tire department. A pleasant tune le
assured. Price of tickets only one dol

Timber Falls on (ieorge Stranahan.
4 heavy 4x6 timber struck George
Stranahan on the head shortly after
noon last Thursday, and for a few min
utes his fellow workmen thought that
the young man was killed.
George was at work on the new ware
house for Stranahan & Bagley, to the
north of the railroad track, and as the
carpenters were putting some of the
leavy timbers in position, one ot them
slipped and struck George squarely on
top of the head. Had the timber landed
cornerwise it is feared the young man
would have been killed. He was insen
sible for a few minutes, and very sick
after gaining cousciousness.
A physician was called and the young
taken to his home. George was a very
sick man for several days, but at last re
ports was doing nicely.
Fight Will be Bitter.
Those who will persist in closing
their ears against the continual recom

bitter fight with their troubles, if not
