Benton man Boys Three Hundred Tons
Standing Bark on Colombia at Half
a Cent.
1 G. H. Wamsley of Blodgett, has
made a chittim deal that his friends
think will yield him a pile of mon
ey. The chittim on 4,000 acres of
timber land on the Columbia river
has been acquired, and the price
one half cent a pound on the
bark. The land lies in the vicin
ity of Knappa. and the purchase
was made of logging companies
operating in the neighborhood.
1 here is a railroad station and a
boat landing at the spot, and the
greatest distance that bark will
have to be hauled is' two and a half
miles. The estimate is that 300
tons of chittim bark are involved
in the deal. Mr. Wamsley himself
says, he never saw as- much chit
tim in all his life as stands within
the limit of the territory he has ac
quired. An outfit was purchased
in Corvallis this week, and Mr.
Wamsley and his son are to begin
peeling operations at once.
Mr. Stoner, another Benton
coumv man has acquired a large
tract of chittim on the opposite
side of the Columbia from Knappa,
and left this week to begin peeling
lie paid but one-fourth of a cent a
pound for the bark he is to peel. j
Another deal in bark is that made
by William Spencer and Cass
Harrison. They purchased
standing bark to the amount of
what is estimated to be over 100
tons fat a point 30 miles east of Che
halis, Washington. They are to
pay from one-fourth to one cent a
pound to the seller when the bark
is delivered. They are 30 miles
from a shipping point, but have a
fine plank road all the way. They
are to leave about May 6th to begin
operations, and will take a force of
10 peelers with them.
In his Inside Funny Orders for Medi
cine Sent a Drnggist
How a Snipper got his Fruit Trees from
: a Railroad Company. ,
It took the county sheriff and a
lawsuit to get a shipment of fnnt
trees out of the hands of the South
ern Pacific railroad company at the
Corvallis station the other day. The
fruit trees came from Idaho, and
were consigned to Johnson Porter,
who is setting out - a new peach
orchard. On the way bill of the
railroad company appeared the sig
nificant words, "Hold for Inspec
tion." The order to hold was in
consonance with the state law which
requires that all fruit trees
shipped into the state shall be in
spected by an officer of the horti
cultural commission. The law is
supposed to be precautionary for
prevention of the introduction of
pests and other fruit tree diseases of
infectionary character.
It so happened that the holding
of the trees for inspection in this in
stance seemed to mean certain de
struction of the trees. The trees
were in bundles, and the roots
packed in corn shucks to keep them
moist. They had been shipped
from Nampa, Idaho, on the 1st of
April and the arrival at Corvallis
was not until the 15th. In the
meantime the roots were beginning
to heat. It was not known how
soon a horticultural inspector could
be brought to the scene, and Mr.
Porter could not afford to take
chances. He had already paid for
the trees before shipment, and their
destruction meant his loss. He
asked for the trees to be delivered
to him, but the station agent obey
ing the orders of the billing, was
obliged to refuse. Mr. Porter then
demanded, but railroad men have
no other alternative than to obey
superiors, and a continued retusai
was the result. Determined at all
hazards to save his trees from des
truction, Mr. Porter resorted to the
courts and at once began suit for
his property. Proper legal papers
were issued, and armed with Jthese,
Sheriff Burnett bore down on the
railroad station, and the trees were
properly delivered.
As to Hotel Rates and Aceommodtions
for State Grange Meeting.
Already delegates to the state
grange to be held in Corvallis . in
May are making inquiry relative
to rates and accommodations. The
hotels of Corvallis will grant special
rates to the visiting farmers and
citizens in general as well as the
grangers of Bentpn will be glad to
participate in any demonstration
of respect and welcome to our
guests. -
The plan is to hold a four day
session beginning May 24th. thus
giving one day more that custom
ary for the extra business that is to
be considered here prior -to the
meeting of the national grange to
be held in Portland in November.
The biennial election of officers,
will take place at this meeting, and
good roads, rural mails, country
high schools, and how to increase
and improve the products of the
farm, better prices for grain, prunes,
and hops, how to beautify the
farmer s home, and how to make
the farm selfpaying are some of the
problems that will be discussed.
It is probable that the business
sessions will be held in one of the
college buildings, and it is probable
that its closing session, will occur
in one of the town halls for in all
probability the fifth and sixth de
degrees will be conferred on eighty
to 100 candidates at the last
evening which will close with ban
quet provided by local grangers.
As is generally known the meet
ings will be open to all grangers
in good standing. It is expected
that a very large attendance will
be had from the first session.
