'TUESDAY EVENING, NOV. 20, 1906
At Portland, there is effort to
prove that Willamette apples are as
good as grow. The attempt will
probably succeed. Hood River
apples brought $3 a box this season
But to'produce like Hood River and
sell like her, Willamette must cul
tivate, spray, select orchard sites,
sort, pack and market like Hood
River. Under any other plan
than that she employed Hood Riv
er would have failed. A properly
selected site on soil 10 feet deep
and drained as to water and air to
gether with application of industry,
science and sense are vital essen
tials. That done there will be
no such word as fail in Willamette
in apple growing and when that
day comes, some . lands that now
sell for $10 for goat pasture will
be worth $200 or $300 an acre for
apple orchard, and the owners will
"be waxing rich.

SMALTEST SALARY IN STATE.
If the San Francisco trolley deal

outlay in oriental rugs for the
floors of his house, what a snug
sum there must have been for his

the several eligible New York
gentlemen who are sitting up and
taking notice of the rumor would
feel more at liberty to act. A seat
with a millionaire senator in it is
never vacant until its vacant.
And was it for this that Jay
Gould packed a surveyors chain in
early manhood, wore old clothes
and toiled, planned and saved, to-
wit; that he might become the
father-in-law of a titled jackass with
its lid always off?

As is well known Corvallis is
the ooly town of its size in Oregon
with out such an organization as is
DroDOsed. Even many smaller
towns have well appointed club
rooms with a large and interes'ed
membership. The equipment pro

iodicals and newspapers, card rooms
bowline alleys, erymnasium with

The membership is placed at not

For a Recorder Benton Gets ' but
Little More lhan Half as Much
as Next Lowest.
The fees of his office more than
pay the salary of the county record
er The recorder of Benton receiv
es the munificent sum of $800 per
year. The salary is the smallest
paid by any county in the state, j
It was iormerly $1,000 a year, and
that is the figure at which it ought
to have remained. Even at that
figure, the office more than paid
its way, and that is what made the
reduction a curious circumstance.
The receipts of the office in fees
for August this year, $83.70; for
September, $94,20; for October.
$106.07; totalfor thequarter. $284,
60. The salary of the recorder is
$66.66 per month or tor the three
months referred to, $200. The ex
cess of revenues over officer's sal
ary is, $84.60.
The humiliating phase of the sal
ary Benton pays is seen from the
fact the county that pays the next
lowest salary is Washington, whose
recorder receives $1,563, nearly
twice as much as the Benton record
er receives. In Baker county the
cost last year of the recorder's office
was $3,200, and in Umatilla. $3,-
400. In Columbia, a county of
about the same importance as Ben
ton, the office last year cost nearly
$2,800. The reduction of the Ben
ton salary took place with the be
ginning of the term of the present
incumbent, or at the very time
when advances in pay were being
made all along the lines. It came
too at a time when advancing prices
of necessities has made the cost of
living very high. After the record
er pays out the $200 or more that
he cannot help spending in his
campaign, and then after he makes
the contributions to every passing
church, school or other enterprise
that calls for help, a mulcting to
which all couDty officers are sub
jected and payment of which they
cannot escape, there is little left
for a recorder's house rent an I sup
plies for his family. The wonder
is that any man can be induced to
mn for the office, especially when
he has to give bond, and assume
charge of records, papers, and ar
chives of the most important character.

Always Keeps Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy in His House.
"Wo would not be without Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. It is kept on hand contin
ually in our home," says W. W. Keamey,
editorof the Independent, Lowry City, Mo.
That is just what every family should do.
When kept at hand ready for instant use, a
cold may be checked at the outset and cured
in much less time than after it has become
iettled in the system. This remedy is also
without a peer for croup in children, and
will prevent the attack when given as soon
as the child becomes hoarse, or even after
the croupy cough appears, which can only be
done when the remedy is kept at hand. For
