Hood River's apple crop is ex
acted to total 150 cars, and at
the contract price this crop will
bring the growers $200,000.
Benton county has as much ap
ple land, as good apple land, and
what experts say are more ideal
conditions for growing certain
varities of apples. In ten years
Benton county fruit growers can;
if they will, raise $200,000 worth
of apples, yearly, and this paper
believes Benton county will be
producing that quantity of fruit
in ten years. It is practically
certain . that more than 1,000
acres of fruit trees wiil be plant
ed within the next twelve months
by three companies.

Ralph Cracknell Says the President Is
' Typical American Player.
After, watching President Taft's sec
ond assault the other day on the deep
golf trenjhes and high ramparts of the
Myopia Hunt club at Hamilton.' Mass.,
Whose links ; are acknowledged to be
the standard in the United States.
Ralph Cracknell.' one of - the leading
golf critics in America, says that even
in bis golf the president can be noth
ing except American. "His strokes are
the national ones that . the national
game -makes second nature to- all golf
ers who have played baseball." says
the critic. "To expect the president to
come through with his-stroke and fin
ish with the dub high in the air. with
the wrists taut, is to forget that Scot
land's bonnie swing cannot be grafted
on to: an anatomy - which was, molded
by the short swing of the baseball bat.
"President Taft's real game is base
ball. Style is dignity, and dignity3 is
styles and President Taft never does
the things on the links that make so
many look , ridiculous. One thing it is
quite apparent he has mastered that
is. to-beep the head still when making
a hot., ' President Taft stands - very
strairht nsvhe mnkesi his shots. His
club does not fcn hack so very far. but
he p's risrht through The hnlL. and if
he carpr1 anything about frills he could
finish in the approved style. Rnt. hav
ing jrone through j fhp ball, he rloses
the discussion atid gives no final pose."
"President Taft never gets tired. He
was round the Myopia links In less
than an hour and a half. That's good
going. 7 The president can beep his
place on any green in the world, how
ever expert the -golfers. That can be
banked upon. " He moves forward at a
rapid, swinging gait and seems to en
joy every step of the way."

The State Fair opens at Salem

B great social clearing-house
quite as much as a fair.' It is
an annual occasion for the gathr

the valleys, not all of them farm

' them engaged in that business
: Bad profiting much by meeting
their fellows and renewing old
acquaintance and making new

traction to the fair than this,
although the other attractions
are many and varied.
The fair will be a big success;
is always that, but thjs year it
Bhould be a bigger and greater
success than ever before. It is
being given in the midst of one
- of our most prosperous and pro
lific years. Nowhere along the
horizon is any sign of financial
disturbance; the outlook could
? scarcely be improved. It is well,
therefore, to meet at Salem and
get out of the exhibitions and
associations the pleasures that
go with them.

GOATS AS TRAIL MAKERS.
Thousands of Them Clearing Out Un
derbrush of a California Forest. ,
The brush eating instinct of Ango
ra goats is being successfully demon
strated on the Lassen national forest
to California, where they are cutting
trails for fire guards through the
brushy areas on the slopes of the
mountains. 1 , ' '
The animals, which number 3,000,
have been divided into two bands and
under the care of the herders are
grazed . within certain well defined
areas, so that their work may be con
centrated on 1 the : brush within those
limits. The result is that they have
practically killed nearly all the brush
in the course - either by eating it up
entirely or by barking, as in the case
of the heavy tnanzauita bushes. At
the beginning of the experiment there
was- some doubt as to the goats', will
ingness to eat the manzanita. but. it
has been found that 'where there is
little else they will just as readily attack-it
as any other bushes. '
The, grazing season was so late this
year on - the Lassen forest that the
goats did not : begin operations until
about the middle of June., but since
then they have made rapid 'progress.
and the result promises to be a suc
cess from every point of view. The
trails will first be opened and then
kept free ot sprouts by the goats, sav
ing the government considerable labor
in, cutting them out by hand, -as has
been done heretofore, while the brushy
forage which otherwise would have
been wasted will support 3,000 goats
