A meeting of practical significance
was held at the Baptist church (the
Heights) last Wednesday night, when
a set of articles, an adaptation to local
conditions, prepared on the basis of
the Mosier Federation', was consider
ed. The meeting was of interest in
the spirit manifested and in the gen
eral unanimity on the question under
consideration. On Sunday night the
church by official vote adapted the ar
ticles as prepared and thus made it
self a constituent element of the fed
eration therein described. By this act
a definitely organized form is given
to the class of work which, to some
degree, has been !i progress during
the larger part of Mr. Hargreaves'
ministry. The congregation has
adopted for its name "Immanuel
Church" (Federated), under which
cognomen future announcements will
be made.
A meeting for election of officers
will be held Wednesday night. At
present Mr. Hargreaves is in charge
of three centers working on a slmi
lar basis and for the balance of the
year expects to be assisted by Rev. Dr,
McKee. In this arrangement regular
morning services will be resumed in
Hood River, the program for Sunday
November 24 being as follows.: Sun
day School at 10 o'clock, Morning wor
ship at 11 o'clock, sermon by Rev. Mc
Kee; evening praise esrvice at 7:30,
when Mr. Hargreaves and Mr. Simp
son will be in charge. The subject
will be "The Christian's Relation to

In reply to the criticism of the
Washington state tax commission In
its action in taxing fruit trees, de
spite the fact that the legislature of
1908 passed an exemption law cov
ering such trees, the commission jus
tifies itself on various decisions of the
supreme court which hold that
private property, which it defines,
cannot be exempted from taxation,
and holding that the fruit trees come
within that definition, just as cows or
plows. The commission, in a letter to
the various county assessors, written
last February, says: "We advise you
that fruit trees, being private prop
erty, are not exempt from taxation in
this state. You ought to assess the
land upon which fruit trees stand with
regard to its value. Whatever value
is added to the land by its fruit trees
being thereon must be included. This
rule has been followed in some of the
fruit-raining countries and disregarded
in others, and we desire now to make
this a specific instruction to all asses
sors to the end that the property of
each county will be uniformly and
equally assessed and taxed."

After the Doctor
The doctor's work is only half
what has to be done.for the pa
tient. And if the "druggist be
lacking in ability and care the
prescription might asj well have
never ( been written. But we
make a special study of each case
and our own medical knowledge
is thorough enough to be of great
use to us in those sometimes oc
curring cases when the doctor,
in his haste, makes a slight error.
