Blonoy-MakliiK Industry If Properly
Taken Care of.
The dairy business lu Columbia
County In a subject which will bear a
great amount of talking about, and for
tliut reason wa fuel justified In devoting
cousiuerniiie space to tlie subject. We
boliuve no County in the Htate offers
better inducements to tho dairyman
than does Columbia, and as Interest is
taken and capital and effort devoted in
that industry, that fact becomes daily
more apparent to those who watch the
course of events in thatmattor. There are
numerous well-stocked, well-equipped
citttry larms in tlie Countv and tlio own
ers are mukinir a trroat ileal ol monov.
but it is not absolutely necessary to
nave an immenne hem ol cow lu order
to pursue thu business wltii nrollt
Thin week we received a pleasant cull
from Mr. O. K. Wouderly, of Heaver
Valley, who, for some time pant, has
devoted somo attuntion to dairying on a
small scale, and the degree of success
which has attendsd Mr. Wonderiy's
ofl'ort has boon an encouragement to
him to pay more attention to the mut
ter. Last year Mr. Wouderly milked
sixteen cows, disponing of thu cream to
the Rainier creamery, and the earnings
oniiiui) rum to live well and make con
siderable inilirovuiuent about bin farm.
Of courne, Mr. Wonderiy's place in
seven miles from market and ho was al
considerable disadvantage, but ho has
persevered in hi undertaking until he
lias been enabled to huv a larrn much
nearer the river front, and now ho hopes
to lie able to engage exclusively aim to
considerable extent in tlio dairy busi
ness. This season Mr. Wonderlv has
milked but six cows, and while May in
about as unprofitable a mouth as any in
tho year for the butter business, hin
monthly earnings from tho six cows was
ij.fti.7u tor cream delivered to the cream
ery. This demonstrates what can be
nccomplinhed by determined effort.
Every farmer in this County could if he
would, have a monthly income of from
flift to 5U from a sinull herd of cows if
the proper interest were but manifested.

County Judge Inaugurated New Sys
tem Jtcirariltnit ISonils.
Somewhat of an innovation in official
bind filing and approving has been
adopteil by the County Juilgo. Hereto
fore it has been customary for those
signing oftleial bonds to verify to their
wealth before any officer empowered to
administer an oath, but it now appears
that the County Judge has placed an
altogether different construction upon
the law, and will himself administer
tho oath to the sureties snd approve the
bonds of tho severul oliicialn. Thin
action is not taken by Judifo I loan la
eaiuii of any den ire to be dictatorial or
to umbo undue use of hin authority, but
becauso he believes he is adhering
strictly to tlie letter of tho law regard
ing the matter. It may lie depended
that Judge Doan will proceed in the
matter just in accordance with the dic
tates of the law as hn understands it,
which generally is about right. Thin
method will be a little inconvenient,
but anything, even the leant important,
correctly attended to, costs an effort. If
it is worth while to require bond from
tho County officials, it in worth tho ef
fort to know that in case anything were
to go wrong tlio bondsmen would lie
hnldcii. A little experience along that
line in the past ha been a very good
lesson, but valuables are usually not ob
tained at no cost. Thin action of the
judge' is but a precautionary step,
characteristic of hi methodn.

Matter Has Itevelvetl Home Consid
eration by Interested I'oi-tloH.
Tho Idea of bridging Scuppooso Hay
from a point near Warren to a point
directly opposite, might at first seem
nbstird to many peoplo, but there is
considerable talk about such an under
taking being indulged in by many
people more or lens Interested in a move
ment of that kind. The feasibility of
such an undertaking might be tpics
tioued, but it could lie accomplished
without a verv ereut outlay of cash, and
certuinly such an improvement would
lie ot wonderful benotlt and convoineuce
to tho farmers up mid down Scaripoose
Hay for many miles. From St. Helens
to Hcnppoone landing, on tho Slough,
there in absolutely no outlet for the
fanner, only by 'patronizing tho rail
road, which is said to bo too expensive
to admit of any margin being realized
by the farmer on hin product shipped.
A steamer oasses throuiih the Slouirh two
directions each day, and if tlio people In
tlio vicinity ot warren tind convenient
menus of reaching tlio Slough, there
would Kn bo a wonderful trotflc built
up. Tho plan of building a bridge from
the mainland to tho Copeland place on
tho Slough, may someday bo consum
mated, and when it is, the benefit of
such an enterprise will be realized.
Astoria Taper Says there la Danger
It is estimated that at the present
time about two million feet of fogs are
lieimr t.lared iii the Columbia riVer
every day. These at tlio ruling price,
represent a cann vamo oi jiz.whi. as
(lie mills are using only about eleven
hundred thousand loot per dny, the sur
plus is accumulating quite rapidly. Of
courso the season in many of the camps
will only last a few months and then
the surplus will be cut down. Tho price
now for both fir and spruce is six dol-liii-a
ner thonsnnd and one of tho obtccts
of the Columbia River Loggers' Asso
ciation is to keep the price at that figure
or at least proportionate with the lum
ber markets. Another aim of the osso
ciation is to compel the adoption of the
Spaulding scale In the measurement oi
logs no that tho scaling at all mills and
camps will bo uinform. At the recent

of the mills adopting a private scale,
