Relief from Rheumatic Pains.
"I suffered with rheumatism for
over two years," says Mr. Holland
Curry, a patrolman, of Key West,
Fla. "Sometimes it settled in my
knees and lamed me so I could
hardly walk, at other times it
would be in my feet and hands so
I was incapacitated for duty. One
night when I was in severe pain
and lame from it my wife went to
the drug store here and came back
with a bottle oi Chamberlain's
Pain Halm. I was rubbed with it
and found the pain had nearly gone
during the night. I kept bn using
it for a little more than two weeks
and found that it drove the rheum
atism away. I have not had any
trouble from that diseise tor over
three months." For sale by St.

Up to the Property Holders.
Speaking of the item in The
Review of last week in regard to
the condition of Tacoma street
Chairman Lcggett of the street
committee of the council says the
improvement of the street is up to
the property owners. The council
stands ready to take the matter up,
but it must le done in the regular
way. That the thoroughfare is
unsightly all will admit, and its
improvement for a couple of blocks
off of Jersey street would add ma
terially to the entire business district.
If you want job printing done at
once, bring it in now.
Proposition to Oil the Streets in
The proposition to oil portions
of Jersey, llurlington and Philadel
phia streets in the business section,
made in The Review during the
dusty period of a couple of weeks
ago, has been favorably received
by many of the merchants and
property owners, and it is likely
that tlie plan will be carried out.
The almost unbearable dust of
the recent dry spell demonstrated
to all what a nuisance it will prove
if allowed to continue throughout
the summer. It has been shown
that it will be far cheaper to oil the
business district than it would to
sprinkle it daily with water. The
only difference will be that the
work and expense of the oiling
process will all come at once, al
though it is (bought that the pay
ment for the same can be arranged
so that it will fall lightly on all.
It is a matter that should le tak
en up and carried out at once before

A Visit to the Vnllcy Famous
For Us Apples.
The writer paid n visit to Hood
River last week, and the time and
money spent was well worth the
price. All who are unacquainted
witli scientific apple culture should
make n trip to this famous valley
at their earliest convenience. Ap
ples, and the highest priced ones
111 the world, are raised. The
people talk apples and orchards,
and every man, woman and child
is a Rooster with a big H.
The valley where the apples nnd
strawberries nre raised, is far ahead
of the town. What Hood River
needs is graded streets. Its business
house. carry fine fresh stocks and
impress the visitor that the people
are prosjcrous. Muuy handsome
resiliences tell of the thrill of the
people in the valley.
A ride into the orchard district
is a disappointment at first. In
stead of miles of bearing orchards
that one would naturally expect to
see there is only one here and there.
Hut there nre young orchards ga
lore. Hundreds of acres have been
set to trees during the past two
years. The orchards that are in
full bearing arc money makers.
One man has a iccord of clearing
over -fiooo an acre after all expense
was paid. One of his Newtown
trees netted him $52. Many others 1
did nearly as well. Another, who
has 11 40 acre commercial oichard!
refused $40,000 for it last fall.
It is the cculiar keeping and
shipping (tialities of the Hood
River tipple that brings the high
price. One old timer said: "Rogue
River can raise the same kind of
apples that we can. So can Vuki
ma, Weuatehic and the Willamette
valley. Hut when they ship their
fruit we have them skinned a mile.
We send our nnplcs to Africa and
Siberia, and when they are opened
they are found in the be.it of con
dition. Our councilors raise as
nice a looking apple as we do, but
they have to get rid of it at once
because it doesn't keep. Last year
we sent our strawberries to London, '
Ktigliiud, and to Hong Kong, Chi-1
ua, and they arrived in excellent
condition. It is becau.se our fruit
possesses keeping mid shipping
qualities that makes it desirable
and sought for."
Five and ten acre orchards bear
ing the high priced apples, or what
is known us commercial orchards, ,
ate not to Ik; hud at any price. At
least the writer did not hear of one
for sale. As one man said "It
would be like selling 11 ten dollar
piece for seven and a half to let ,
them go." Tracts bearing the
cheater varieties may be obtained,
The care given these money nuk
ing groves of trees is a source of
wonderment to the visitor. The
king or queen of the harness horse
does not receive more attention.
The trees are trimmed nnd sprayed
mid everything done thut will make
the fruit jericct. No matter how
muuy apples are in 11 cluster they
arc all removed but two. Then, if
it is seen that these two nre going
to touch, one of these is pulled off.
To one who is a stranger to the
business it looks wusteful, but the
result proves otherwise.
The tillers of these small lurms
do not confine themselves to apples.
All the smaller fruits arc grown.
Strawberries are sent out by the
train load. To imagine how these
strawberries ure picked, packed,
crated and shipped is beyond the
comprehension of the uninitiated.
It is ulldoue by clock work sim
plicity. The farmers have a union ,
thut fixes the prices of the products'
and labor. In fact there is no
guess work. Kverythiug is done
on a business basis by business
We arc indebted for courtesies
to W. J. Haker, a resident of Hood
River for twenty years, and now in
the real estate business. He has a
fund of information about the ,
valley and its products possessed
by few, and has the reputation of
having more pleased customers in
the apple district than any other
man in Hood River. We found
everything exactly us he represent
ed and wish to recommend him to
all of our friends going to the fam
ous apple district intending to in
