The demand for young fruit trees
In the Northwest bus been bo great
the pant few years as to moke It
almost impossible for the nursiea
to keep up with the demand. Thou- i
sands upon thousands of trees are
planted each year the acreage become !
greater. The fruit industry In .de- j
veloplng rapidly and the demand both :
foreign and local Is more than keep
ing abreast with, the Increased out
put. There seems, apparently, to be
no limit to the consumption of choice
apples, which represents the great
volumn of fruit grown. Few locali
ties exist where some of the many va
rieties do not grow to perfection.
It is to be hoped that the' negotia
tions now pending between the ma
chinists and the Harrtnmn system
may bo adjusted at the couferencf
now being held in Salt Lake City. A
strike at. this season of the year would
prove disastrous to all interests con

The kidneys need help.
They're overworked can't get the
poison filtered out of the blood.
They're getting worse every minute.
Will you help them?
Doan's Kidney Pills have brought
thousands of kidney sufferers back

Ore., says: "In view of the benefit I
derived from Doan's Kidney Pills, I
can only speak of them as being a
reliable remedy for the kidneys. I
used them principally for a severe
pain acrops my back, which had an-
j noyed me for some time. The re
I suits that followed the use of the first
! box were so satisfactory that I con
' tlnued taking the remedy until my
j hack was free from pain. I cheerfully
