Movement In Timber Land.
Some correspondent of a dally paper
recently learned of the sale of a low
timber claims in Southwestern Wash
ington at a very low price. Acting upon
this he immediately wrote his paper
that "the timber land boom had
broken." Dozens of other papers copied
thi and gave it wider circulation, thus
helping to create distrust and depreciate
very man' timbor on the Coast, ho
doubt the statement made that a" bunch
of timbor bad been sold too cheap i
correct that may occur any time, no
mutter what tiie condition of the tim
ber market may be. There Is a con
stunt movement in timber land much
of it I being bought to hold. Perhaps
buyer are trying to create an impress
ion that prices are weaker. No doubt
in some lusts nee they are. The fact
is, however, that the timber lands of
the Coast were never so good property
as at the present time. They are, with
out doubt, the best investment man
can make. West Coast Lumberman.
Odd for MoKlnley of to 1.
The Bryanitc are still grumbling be
cause the betting fraternity do not oiler
bigger odds than 5 to 1 on McKinley.
Later on in the campaign perhaps the
margin on McKinley will go up to 6 or
8 to 1. The canvass I young yet. The
odd against Brvan were never so great
in ltWMI us they are in 1000. Tho Bryan
ites who were howling about the value
of the bets a an election indicator in
18U0, when the odd against Bryan were
only small, ought to be impressed by
the figures this year. If the narrow
margin against Bryan among the pool
sellers of four year ago presaged a ma
jority of 05 against him in the electoral
collego, what size of a Republican ma
jority do the immensely greater odds
this year portend?
Tbe lttOO Hop Crop. .
Hop In Oregon never bad bettor
prospect for a good crop of excellent
quality. This is the concensus of opin
ion and there Is scarcely a hop grower,
dealer or expert that diBsents from the
above statement. While it ia true that
tbe crop will not be aa large aa that
grown some years, the hops promise to
be richer and freer from vermin. Lice
are few and far between, and the yards
that have been systematically sprayeu
are entirely free from this pest that in
the oast has been so disastrous to this
crop. This year's crop will be ready for
trie picKer somewnai earner man usual,
and it is likely that by September 6 all
yards will lie alive with pickers harvest

Our School Finance.
In the annual report of the State
Superintendent of Public Instruction.
compiled for the year ending July 1st,
iuuu. is snown tne amount ot money
received and disbursed by each County
in the State, compared with tho year
previous. In that year Columbia
County received for school purposes
$15,237.60, and disbursed $14,602.85.
During the last school year, according
to the report, this Countv received $17,
651.61, and disbursed $ltf,683.83.
More Itallroad Humors.
Thore la a newsnaner report current
that the O. R. 4 N. Co, has purchased
the Ilwaco railroad and will extend the
line up the north back of the Columbia
to Frankfort, at the mouth of Uray's
Bay. There is considerable practicabil
ity about such an enterprise. Tbe O.
R. & N. Co. is operating steamer be
tween Portland and Ilwaco, and in order
to handle the trade it ia necessary to
have vessel so constructed as to be able
to stand outside weather. Should the
railroad be extended from Ilwaco up to
Frankfort any ordinary river steamer
will be able to be phicea in commission
in handling the Coast trade.
The 1BOO Halmon Pack.
The Columbia River salmon pack this
season is approximately 2U0.00O cases.
The biggest year was in 181M, when the
pack a rn on n ted to ow.wu esses. .Not
withstanding the small pack this year
the canneries paid out more monev this
season than in 1804, when they had tiie
big year. As a consequence, money has
been as plentiful this year as when the
pack was 000.000. ereatly to the satisfac
tion of both llshermon and business
houses. An average of 7 cent waa paid
for fish this season. A higher price was
paid at times, but tbe average amounts
to 7 cents per pound. The quality
made up for the quantity of fish.
Ontnea Pig for Experiment.
The Stale Agricultural College at Cor-
valiis ha imported a number of guinea
pis for experimental purposes. In
speaking about them the Corvallis
Times says: "Every new disease which
comes along will be imparted to one of
these animals by inoculation or other
wise, and if things go right, it will have
a genuine case of the disease, and then
it will be known that the correct gerjn
nas ueen secureu. me prooiem men is
to find a cure, and in experimenting for
thi the lives of a number of the guinea
pigs are likely to bo forfeited. This sort
of thing may be interesting to the
guinea pig for a time, but after it bas
run the gauntlet ol nan a dozen Diseases,
it is likely to become wearied and suc
cumb to some trifling ailment.

Very Lew Water.
Water in the Columbia River is as
low at present as wa ever known at
this season of the year. The same con
dition exists in the tributaries, and
much difficulty 1 experienced in navi
gating some of tbe stream. The
steamer Mascot, operating on Lewis
River, cannot navigate tbe stream above
the forks. She can reach neither Wood
land nor La Center. The depth of
water lu the East Fork at some places
does not exceed four inches. Last year
an appropriation ol f ll),wu waa maae
by the Government for dredging and
improving the east for of Lewis River,
but so far only a mile has been deep
ened. A breakwater has been installed
near La Center, however, but this will
be of no avail until- high water seta in.
Shooting; Large Stumps.
D. 3. Switzer is revolutionizing- land-
clearing methods at his ranch at bache
lor Milt, He ia snooting toe large
stumps out of the around with powder
of low per cent glycerine composition.
which cost mm a.,o per nunarea
pounds, lie purchased 200 pounds of
the article and has blown the stumps
out of 1M acres of ground, and it is said
the particular piece of ground was quite
"stumpy," too. He nas probably de
voted ton day's time to the undertaking,
which, at ordinary wages, cost him $20,
making the total cost of clearing the
land lees than $40 for two acres. This
nrice la considered extremely cheap,
especially aa the ground is thoroughly
cleared of all roots and ia ready for the
plow. Mr. Switzer's demonstration of
the merits of the powder can be seen
and will be explained by calling on that
gentleman, who teeis mat ne nas louna
a money-saver in iana clearing.
Lesson tn Horticulture.
Mr. Dolman has a peach tree in his
back yard which he claims, to demon
strate thoroughly, the secret of peach
growing in this climate. The tree
stands so close to the house that a por
tion df it is under a shed roof. On that
particular part ol the tree are a num
ber of peaches, some of them large and
luscious, oilier smau ana unpaiauioie.
Mr. Dolman, having given horticulture
a very thorough study, has solved the
problem of the ditference in the fruit,
especially to bis own satisfaction,' and
his logio seems to be well founded. The
large, sweet peaches grew in such a pro
sition as to be protected from the rains,
while at the same time they had the
benefit of all the sunshine which this
part of the country has been favored
with this season. The small, bitter
peaches growing on the Bame stalk were
subjected to the rain and deprived from
the sunshine by the shadow of the
upper portion of the tree. Mr. Dol
man' theory is, that to make peach
growing a success, the fruit muBt be
protected from the rains and given the
advnntage of all the sunshine it is pos
sible to shed on them.
