What the Hood River District Land Co. Offers
In Ten Acre Tracts
To sell TEN ACRES at $500 or $000 per acre, according to
location, on the following terms: 10 per cent cash and one
half of one per cent per month, with C per cent interest on
To clear the land and set to'selected apple trees of stand
ard commercial varieties, and to care for same for five years at
the company's expense.
Argument No. 1
The benefits to the purchaser in following the above plan
are as follows: We send our experts direct to the nursery to
select each tree. An additional inspection is made by the local
fruit inspector, thereby securing a perfect tree.
Our employees are men who have been in the business for
ten years or more and who thoroughly understand setting out
trees. To illustrate: We dig a proper hole, mulch the ground,
pruning the roots and heading the tree properly. We protect
each tree with Yucca Tree Protectors. We cultivate the ground
every two weeks during the growing season, and care for the
property in a thoroughly expert manner up to the time we de
liver it to the purchaser.
Argument No. 2
This proposition enables the man or woman of small means
to retain his or her position and pay for the land out of their
monthly salary, securing for themselves at the end of five years
a piece of property that has doubled in value and should, com
paring with present returns on such property, make them in
dependent for the rest of their lives.
Argument No. 3
The sum and substance of the foregoing proposition is that
you loan THE HOOD RIVER DISlRICT LAND CO. your
money, on the best of security, to develop their land, and at
the end of five years divide the profits, the purchaser taking
about two-thirds and the company retaining about one-third.

China' Market for Apples
James CJ. McNally, United Statea
coiiBUl at TxliiKtau, China, la a re
cent report to consular bureau gives
aonie Interesting Information In re
ttard to the market tor apples In
China. He nays:
"A recent consignment of American
apples to the three leading dealers In
TMlngtau was duly advertised and
within a few days was sold. The
apples, not of first-class quality,
brought $0.50 Mexican, or $2 8:5 gold,
at the present bank rate of exchange
ler box of forty-six pounds. The
Japanese quality, a good and well
flavored article, Is selling at $2 4S
gold per case of fifty pounds.
"A little energy on the part of
American apple producers on the Pa
cific coust would create an almost
exclusive market here for their pro
ducts. 'If more effort were put forth by
growers of Pacific northwest apples
to enter this market they would
command the same reputation that
American can goods enjoy, and
would sell readily for the best price."

The apple market continues firm
and steady. Latest reports from

The olliclal figuree regarding storHge

for the month of January, are not

that It will make a very fine showing
It Is thought that New York will
show at least 175.000 to 200.000 boxes
less on I'ebraary 1st than on Janu
ary Int. This Is partially due to the
strong active market abroad, but as
January Is usually a dull month It
can be seen that this showing Is an
exceedingly encouraging one.
