Look at your wagon wheels and see if the tires do
not need tightening. Loose tires will cause loose

Better have this work done before you use the

Bring your wagon to us and let us put it in good

POETIC TRIBUTE IS
PAID MOUNT HOOD
Frank V. Stone of Vancouver,
Wiihli., Iiiih penned the latent poem
on Mt. Hood, mm follow.
In the iltiwn of early morning,
When the bonta of nljrlit have lied
The mured of unen HcornliiKt
Hood reurM IiIm Know-capped head
Snlline and alone In liU Klory,
(iuardliiK the valley below,
ItiiKgeii am) Hk'i'd and hoary.
Crowned with eternal hiiow.
TowerlnK above the foothlllw,
In a Hlilminer of rowv Huht,
We feel HurccaHe of life's IIIh,
And heed not time's rapid flight,
An we gaze on the myHtlc, shading
Of orange, and crimson and gold.
And watch the shadows fading
From crag and pinnacle bold.
I)e'p seamed and thunder-riven,
And gashed by glacial How.
Shrouded In snow wraiths driven
Ity lierce winds from below;
While ever above the storm cloud,
The summit, at break of day,
Klses free from the mist cloud,
Kellcctlng the sun's first ray.
Kissed by the sun's first greeting,
As bridegroom salutes the bride,
Koreas and I'hoebus meeting,
Ardor and chilling pride,
Fainting the glaring lee fields,
A marvelous rosy hue,
Tints no human brush yields,
(ilow and then pass from view.
And when the dark Invaders,
Steal upward through gorge and
The hosts of light, crusaders,
Are forced to retreat again;
On the crest of Hood white gleaming
They make a last brave stand.
Till o'er it dark cohorts streaming,
Again night shadows the land.
Hmplres may rise and perish,
Seasons will come and go.
The works of man we cherish,
Will fade as they older grow,
lint thou, majestic mountain,
Like God's eternal truth,
Of crystal streams and fountain.
Art symbol of age and youth.

OREGON IS BEST
STATE FOR CHERRIES
According to recent O A. ('. 1ml
letlu In no part of the I'nlted State
are cherries grown to so high u le
gree of erffCtlon as In the Btate of
Oregon. Their nlze and dellcloiiHiu-HM
huve given them a world wlile repu
tation. In KuHtern Oregon In hoc li
regloiiH hh The Dalles, Cove, etc.
cherries are grown largely fur nhlp
ping purposes; while In Western Ore
gon and In the Willamette Valley es
peclally they are grown fur both
shipping and canning. Thousands of
acres of fine cherry lands are lying
Idle. The leading commercial vari
eties are Itoyal Anne, Lambert and
lilng; the Itoyal Anne being the stan
dard caunlng terry and the I.atnlert
and Blng the shipping varieties.
Cherries should never be placed on
soli that Is heavy or waterlogged,
or, In short, should never suffer from
wet feet. They do well on the light
er loams and demand good drainage.
Many of the rolling hill lands, such
as one finds In Western Oregon, are
admirably adapted to this fruit. They
also flourish on some of the well-
dralned sand and silt loams along
the rivers. They are large growing
trees, and will need at least X feet
when reaching their mature size
They should be given very good
spring cultivation, although lu many
localities It would be very desirable
not to give spring preparation so
early as to cause the sap to rise be
fore the permanent spring weather.
The ground should be thoroughly
prepared and frequent cultivations
lollow until tuld-summer. Cherries
grow especially well in lawns and It
may be that at some time the most
successful cherry culture will lie prac
tlced where cherries are placed In the
sod of some growing crop, nud Irri
gation water provided.
There seems to be a notion preva
lent that cherries should not be cul
tivated or pruned. This Is an erron
eous opinion and Is not based upon
facts. While It Is true that guin-
mosls kills off quite a large number
of cherry trees especially those hav
ing light llesb, nevertheless I am con
vinced that more large cherry trees
die from neglect than from any other
There Is a varied market for the
output. They can le packed ami
shipped east, canned, dried and pick
led for Maraschino cherries. More
attention should be given to this In
dustry. Pre cooling plants should
established for shipping points. The
Industry offers an attractive Invest
ment. The production at times Is
extremely heavy, the yield reaching
as high as from 000 to mm pounds of
fruit on a single tree. One should
fairly expect to net from $100 to JJ00
per acre on cherries, although uu-
doubtedly at times much better fig
ures arc realized, such as JiiOO to $700
