that has come to light In a century

whose Industry today Is liused on

So great Is the pest and the fear of
It that the last legislature of Callfor

the Christmas holidays, convened
again In apeclal session, and In forty
Ave minutes enacted a luw placing a
rigorous quarantine on all Hawaiian
grown fruits, aud the law, receiving
the governor's stguature immediate

The pest already has permeated
Hawaii, so that very little of tha
country's fruit, either cultlvuted or
wild, Is I in run ue, aud the danger to
California was bo great a year ago
that the Board of Commissioners of
Agriculture and Forestry at Mono

state officials. Millions of dollars
worth of orchard property on the
Islands has lieen ruined, and now not
a single piece of Hawaiian fruit, un
less It lie hermetically sealed and
kept so, can enter California unless I
Is smuggled In.
Incredible as It may seem, all of
California's fruit Industry, which has
been estimated annually to tie fully
$140,000.0o0, may lie totally ruined
through the carelessness of one trav
eler, who. returning from Honolulu
smuggles one bit of Hawaiian fruit
Into the state. This Is the statement
of .officials of the California State
Commission of Horticulture, who
have charge of the quarantine.

EXCAVATING AND GRADING
HOOD RIVER. OREGON
"CRUEL" TO TAKE
FAIRY TALES AWAY
Hood Iilver lias the word of the
Oregoulan that there Is nothing In
jurious to school children's nerves In
the fairy tales which are read In the
schools. That paper referred to a
recent discussion In this city by pub
lishing the following editorial:
The Heights Improvement league
of Hood Itlver has stumbled upt u a
mare's nest of truly frightful aspect.
It has found that the "fictitious
stories In the school readers excite
children's minds and cause a degree
of nervousness which breaks down
their health." Sad Indeed Is this to
think of. The noxious schoolroom
atmosphere, long hours In an unriat
tural position at desks, late hours at
home, badly cooked food and too
much of It eaten at the wrong time,
dauclng purties, premature romanc
ing lie t ween the sexes, none of these
nerve aud stomach-destroying fac
tors .are at work la blessed Hood
Itlver. The nerves of the school chll
dren are going to wreck there, us
everywhere else, but It is the "ficti
tious stories" In the reading books
which do the business, and nothing
It Is astoulshlng to see a recrudes.
cence of the old Puritanical hatred of
fiction In a community so renowned
for Intelligence as Hood Itlver. Sen
sible parents and teachers under
stand that the child has a natural
craving for stories, that properly
chosen fiction does not "excite" the
young nerves, but soothes and calms
them, and that no mental nutriment
Is, upon the whole, so excellent for a
child as stories of adventure either In
fairyland or upon the earth.
We have niade no personal Investi
gation of the state of the children's
nerves at Hood Itlver and so cannot
diagnose their trouble with scientific
accuracy, but we can made a shrewd
guess at It. They are probably kept
ludoors In bad air when they ought
to be out at play. Xo doubt they
are kept out of bed studying their
lessons when they ought to be asleep.
Very likely they are allowed by their
parents to go to parties and return
at all hours of the night after filling
their stomachs with Indigestible
dainties. Here Is the seat of trouble
with the nerves ol the Hood Itlver
children and not In the poor pieces of
fiction they find Id the school read
ers, lo cut tuetn on from this bit of
mental nourishment would be out
right cruelty. What they need
more stories and more fresh air.
URGES MORE PRUNING AND
LESS PROPPING OF FRUI
With trees that have been grown
slowly and normally, and that havi
lieen shaped properly, many expert
say there Is little need for propping
and bracing, even when bearing the
maximum crops. Many of our trees
have not been developed In this way
aud If not supported are likely to be
broken down with the first large
crop of fruit. I rees mat nave Deen
thinned are less likely to be injured
In this way, for the reason that the
remaining apples usually develop
Into the best grade and the trees do
not have to support a lot of worth
less fruit. Kx.
FICTION IN HIGH SCHOOLS
GETS RATHER HARD JOLT
I'he White Salmon l'nterprlse says
that a Hood Kiver high schoolgirl
much given to novel reading was
going to White Salmon, but became
stalled after she had climbed only
the first section of the stairway
From the top llarve Humphrey saw
her distress, started down, and when
he had nearly reached the girl, heard
her exclaim, "Some succor Is coming
at lastl" The gallant Hurve eyed
her Indignantly and then yelled
down to her, "It's a sucker I Am. Is
It? Well, you can stay Just where
ou are for all of me."
A collapsible crate for use In ship-
ilng apples has been produced that
will be the means of shipping many
housands of bushels of apples that
might otherwise go to waste. These
rates hold a bushel and can be re
timed to the shipper at a compara-
Ively small expense and can be used
several times before they are cou-
Igued to the scrap pile.
