Men are pawing almost daily to and

done bo far. Judge Thorn, who has a
lease on the Russell, Pelkey and Ste

to be hoped that the Ogle Creek mines
will be thoroughly developed this sum

spring work in the way nt prospecting
has been rather slow. Tbe red rock
trail, is still blocked with snow and wilt
be impassable for some time yet. Mr.
Hankins from Arlington, who has a
quarts claim on Ogle Creek, arrived here
recently and has gone to his mine not
withstanding his cabin is still snowed
under! There is several feet of snow

The river route though is open and
free of snow but is a much farther and

dormant for some time. They do not
expect to try to render any very diffi

while the old members are entirely out
of practice. The principal part of the
instrumental music will be furnished
by the Molalla orchester, consisting of
six peices, three violins, a flute, cornet
and baritone. Guy Dibble, a lad only
eleven years old, plays one of the lead
ing violins and is competent of reading
difficult music. Wayne Robbim also

As the hop picking is drawing near
we would like to ask for space in your
valuable paper to make a few romarks
in regard to the price and the price of
picking. Mr. Rees of Aurora was in
this part a few days ago for the purpose
of contracting the coining crop at o;t
cents per pound for one year, as the
outlook for price is very bad. People
do not care to invest money in hops as
the acreage has been cut to quite an ex
tent but not enough to make a mark in
the Price as there is tons of old hops on
the market yet. and yards that are being
cultivated this season are making a good
showing for a large crop. The hop
growers of this county will not pay
more than zo cents per box for picking
this season as they can not afford to pav
the old price, it is rumored mat the
Butteville hop association will set tbe
picking price at 25 cents.
The Lowav vard is being run and will
be picked and also the Moshburger yard,
which will be about tbe extent ot the
picki. g in this vicinity this season, the
two yards above mentioned will pay 25
cents for picking. Hoi' Grower.

. There are medicines which'
change the action of organs
and tissues. When a part
does not properly perform Its
work, they restore it to health. !
Such remedies are called " al
teratives." Scott's Emulsion of Cod
liver Oil, with Hypophos

edies. This is largely be
cause of certain drugs which
naturally exist in the oil, as
Iodine and bromine. If you
