THE ARLINGTON CLUB.
Club life in Portland has not yet reached as high a stage of development
as in the older and larger cities of the east, but has made a good beginning.
There is but one genuine gentlemen's club in the city, the Arlington, com
posed of the leading business and professional men, and in the quality of its
membership unexcelled by any club in the country. For a number of years
the club has occupied the large house on the corner of Third and Pine streets,
formerly the residence of Captain J. C. Ainsworth, but the membership has
become so large and the necessity for a large club house and one better suited
to the needs of the organiiation so great, that the club is now erecting a hand
some structure on the comer of Alder and West Park streets, an engraving of
which is given on the first page of the cover. When this building is completed
the Arlington will have a handsome, commodious and conveniently arranged
club house, and will be in a position to entertain guests in a royal manner.
THE CHEHALEM VALLEY.
The Chehalem is distinctively a part and parcel of the Willamette valley.
There are a great many hills, or low ranges of mountains, extending out from
the Coast and Cascade ranges, that cut the Willamette valley into sections
that sometimes derive a special name from the particular hills by which they
may be surrounded. Chehalem is an Indian name, meaning "The Valley of
Flowers." In this instance it is no misnomer.

WiXINT MOOD -QHtWN l:-:.,
The Chehalem valley impresses one with a sense of its complete harmony
of detail, like the chords of a perfectly-attuned musical instrument. It seems
as if people could not help being peaceful, prosperous and happy in the midst
of such surroundings. There are few places that appear so admirably design
ed for the abode of man as it rolled from Nature's hand it was an El Dora
da The large number of fruit orchards, with their blossoms in springtime
and their ripened fruit in autumn, make the country seem especially delightful
during those seasons.
In this valley, in the heart of which Newberg is located, is found some of
the best fruit land, especially prune land, to be had anywhere on the whole Pa
cific coast. There are good reasons for (his. The Chehalem valley extends
east and west, is protected an the east, north and south by a range of hills
which cut off the bleak winter winds from the Vpper Columbia, while the
south and southwest exposure of the valley is 0en to the gentle breeies from
the ocean that are tempered by the Japanese current, Both soil and climate
are perfectly and completely adapted to fruit culture, and never since the first
fruit was planted in the Chehalem valley has there been anything even ap
proaching a failure in the fruit crop. The protection from blighting winds is
complete; fruit never fails; and this is a statement that is true of very few
Forests are grubbed from the land, and immediately orchards are set on
the tract, which scarcely misses its natural litnlwr before the fruit trees cover
it, and surely the crops of luscious fruit produced must almost make the inani
mate soil laugh at its achievements. Certainly the farmers are pleased with
the products, and the preparations for greatly extending the orchard business
evidence the faith they have in the industry.
Much has been said and written about the results of prune raising here.
There is, however, no doubt about one thing, and that is that responsible men
under oath have asserted and proved, tli.it in both peaches and prunes the pro
duct of the trees of this valley has reached from four to six hundred dollars
per acre after they had reached the average bearing age.
