6 THE HOOD RIVER NEWS, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 29, 1913 Child Labor Good Thing if Not Abused Br LUTHER H. CULICK. Director of the Department of Child Hygiene of the Rusk)I Sate Foundation CHE CAUSE OF UNREST AMONG BOYS AND GIRLS TODAY IS THE LACK OF CHILD LABOR. Children are learning about work, but not doing it. At school they make kites and other things never used. In days jrone by the child WORKED IS THE HOME, but today most of its time outsido of sleeping, eating and dressing is spent in the public schools LEARNING HOW TO WORK. This absence of work is the cause of the present unrest among bovs and girls. The girls aro absolutely foolish because of having this responsibility of work taken off their shoulders. There is no training about work that is equal to being UP AGAINST THE REAL TIIINCS. WE MUST HAVE CHILD LABOR, FOR WORK IS THE ONLY THING THAT WILL GIVE THIS MORAL DISCIPLINE. IT IS ONLY THE BRUTAL ABUSE OF CHILD LABOR THAT IS INJURIOUS. SAY HOOD RIVER WOULD SELL DIRECT From the Journal Hood River apple Interesta are to be directly represented in the Portland wholesale trade, and it is likely that representatives will be secured at Se attle, San Francisco and Los Angeles. ii. uTvement will be made for tin coming season's trade, according to re ports received this morning. The name of the organization that will sell direct to retailers has not yet been made public, but it is under stood to be an amalgamation of vari us big shipping concerns of America's premier apple city. The object of establishing branch houses In each of the leading cities of the coast is said to be an effort to take better care of the products. It is stated that the apple people will al ways have at least two carloads of stock on hand and that no other fruit except that grown in the Hood River section will be handled. The determination of the Hood Riv er people to establish a branch office here is said to be the result of what the apple people claim as discrimina tion against them by wholesalers. This is denied by the latter, who said they purchase their stock where they can get it the cheapest and at the same price Hood River is given the prefer ence. MUSICIAN S A REAL ARTIST There is a talented musician in the Schubert Company, whose work for many years past has been the real foundation of this noted organization's success. Quietly, unassumingly, art 1 9 'cally.she has served her art earnestly rora a great love of it. Other aspir wts for fame, with but a small portion of her great ability, have made desper ate efforts to advertise themselves in to renown by circus methods obnox ious to all real artists, while Lovie Zendt Pnrcell has been serving the divine muse gracefully and royally. It is her phenomenally deep voice that gives the Schubert Ladies' Quartette such an unrivalled tonal foundation, and has won them the undisputed title of "Peerless."

Tate of this city, pastor at White Salmon, is among the dele gation from the latter place who went to Olympia to wage the fight for coun ty division. A number of war horses from the eastern end of the county are also at the capital and one of the stormiest sesion on record is expected. Attorney N. B. Brooks of Ooldendale is taking care of the anti-division end of the affair, while Rev. Tate and sev eral other prominent citizens of White Salmon are in attendance to lend their aid to the divisionists. Mr. Brooks won his election as repreentative last November on the anti-division propo sition, the entire east end of the coun ty voting for him, while his opponent C. S. Spencer of White Salmon, lost on the vision question, being only about 75 votes behind Brooks. The east end of the county, includ ing the county seat at Goldendale, is greatly opposed to county division at this time, claiming the county is too young. At this time the county seat is not In a convenient place for the west end people, and it is a very difficult place to reach and at which to transact county business. It requires about four days' time by team to reach Gold endale and return from Trout Lake val ley or any place in the west end of the county, and is expensive to go by stage or railway. The west end people claim that they pay enormous taxes into the county coffers and do not get much of it ex pended on roads, bridges and other improvements. They claim, also, that the west end is ignored in every way possible. APPENDICITIS BOOK FREE!

DENTAL COMPANY APPLE MARKET IS REPORTER STRONGER Recent market reports from the East show a stronger tendency in the apple markets there. Following are two such reports. The first is from Chicago: "The apple market was reported to be advancing this week, with a steady feeling on all good cold storage stock. Common storage was moving out quite freely, and it was not thought there is a great deal of it yet to be disposed of. Apple men were inclined to hold their prices rather firmly this week, in asmuch as the Jump In the orange mar ket on account of the freeze In Cali fornia caused a good many buyers to turn their attention from oranges to apples. "New York operators were reported to be holding firm on their storage goods- and not evincing any special desire to sell at present prices. It was said they were holding Ben Davis with a view to getting as high as $3 later on, and they expected Baldwins to bring $3 to $3.25. "Baldwins were practically the only variety still held in common storage in any considerable quantities, and prices on this stock in car lots were quoted at S2.35 to $2.50. Cold storage Spies in car lots were selling at $3.25 to $3.50 per barrel, Kings $3.75 to $4.25, Jonathans and Grimes Goldens $44 to $4.50, Greenings $3 to $3.50, Baldwins $2.60 to $2.75, and Russets $3.75 to $4." The second, from Rochester, is as follows: "Larger shipments of apples were made from western New York stations this week, many cars going on consign ment. Firm prices were received for the bulk of the fruit. Shippers receiv ed from $1.90 to $2.25 per barrel for Baldwins, according to quality, most of the sales being common storage fruit. The best Greenings brought $2.75 to $3 , with some common stor age ones going as low as $1.90 to $2.25 per barrel. Not much was done in Kings for the reason that holdings are light as compared with Baldwins and Greenings. Better Demand Expected "Heavy shipments of apples were made from up-state points during De cember, it being estimated that more than 2,250 cars were moved, which compares favorably with shipments in previous months of this season and with the corresponding periods of last year. Dealers estimate that the apple holdings were reduced fully 15 per cent during the month recently closed, and they expect the movement this month to be almost as heavy. The de- with fewer oranges to compete with dealers believe there will be a larger demand for apples." ADVISE ONE-YEAR-OLD TREES Stark Brothers' Nurseries & Orch ard Company of Louisiana, Mo., in their 1913 spring catalogue. Just off the press, urge growers to plant one-year-old trees. They say: "For many years we have advocated the planting of one-year-old trees, ex perience and observation having prov en to us conclusively that they are the best. In addition to the orchards that have come under our eyes, we have kept in touch with orchardists and ex periment stations in nearly every state in the Union and these practical meu are almost as one in their positive statements that one-year-old trees are a better orchard foundation than an older tree. "In the first place, one-year-old ap ple trees cost the planter less, are cheaper to plant and the loss the first season is much less. "A one-year-old tree stands the shock of transplanting from the nur sery row to its permanent home in the orchard - much better than an older tree. There are no extra large roots to be cut off In digging instead, near ly all the smaller and fibrous roots re main, take hold of the soil quickly and start growth at once. "One of the strongest arguments for the planting of one-year-old apple trees is that the tree can be headed Just exactly as it should be. In other words the limbs that are to form the framework of the tree can be allowed to grow Just the right height from the ground and Just the right number of limbs left all other buds are rubbed off and the strength thrown into the ones you want to grow. "One-year-old trees will come Into bearing Just as quickly as older trees planted at the same time and experi ence has proven conclusively will make longer-lived orchard trees." Since the Saturday evening dances at Hellbronner Hall have been discon tinued a Saturday Night Club has been organized and dances will be given every Saturday evening at the Com mercial Club Hall. Harmon's orches tra will furnish mimic. It Is said that no rowdyism will he tolerated and that the dances will be orderly In every respect All are Invited. Regular Sunday excursion to Park dale. Pleasant trip for yourself and friends. MAY BE EMPLOYED ON PRIVATE WORK Professor Lawrence, who has dis continued his services for the county because of the reduction of his salary to $3 a day, may be employed by a number of local orchardists. In that case his work would be confined to the orchards owned by these men and growers throughout the county would not benefit. A move has been Btarted by a number of the larger growers to employ Prof. Lawrenc on account of the valuable research work which he is carrying out. However, Professor Lawrence has not as yet made any definite arrangements with them and it is believed that some means will be found whereby his services can be retained for the benefit of all until legilatlon is effected whereby the coun ty can again employ him at a reason' able salary. KNEW WORLD'S BIGGEST WOMAN Several Local Missourlans Had Met Giantess, Recently Deceased Several local Missourians, among them W. R. Sherwood, were well ac quainted with Miss Ella Ewing of Gorln, Mo., the tallest woman in the world, who died a few days ago. She was eight feet, four Inches in height. Her father, who survives, is six feet tall, and her mother was five feet nine Inches in height. As the father stood beside his daughter he looked like a child in size. TJp to 1892, Miss Ewing displayed no unusual characteristics, but was just like other little Missouri girls. After she had reached her ninth birthday she began to grow very rapidly, and at 10 years of age she measured six feet nine inches. At this period she suffered a good deal of discomfort, as nothing was large enough for her, beds, tables, chairs and other articles of furniture being ridiculously small for the young giantess. None of the garments worn by ordi nary women could be worn by her, and she soon outgrew those expressly made for herself. A desk and seat constructed for her use at school were quickly outgrown. Then, too, it was impossible for her to find suitable occupations and com panions. Wlien she was 7 feet tall she had the tastes and ideas of a little girl. She never could get a bed large enough for her to sleep in comfortably and could not look out of an ordinary win dow or into an ordinary mirror with out stooping uncomfortably. She was in great danger of knocking her head against chandeliers or the tops of doorways, and found it ex tremely inconvenient to sit at an ordi nary table. In later life Miss Ewing toured America and Europe with Barnum's Circus and although she suffered some discomforts on trains and steamers, she bore them philosophically. But during the exciting life of travel and display she kept an ideal ever be fore her. It was to save up her hand some salary and possess a home of her own, where everything should be built with special reference to her remark able height. And at last the woman of eight feet four inches realized the ambition which filled her heart when she was a little girl only seven feet high. The home in which Miss Ewing died has doors 10 feet high, ceilings 15 feet and windows as high as the doors, so that she could go in and out and look out of the windows without stooping. All the articles of furniture are propor tionally large. CHURCH DEACONS, TAKE NOTICEI A contemporary tells us of a novel contribution basket for churches in vented by an Oklahoma man. If a per son drops in a quarter or more in the box there is silence; if he drops In a dime a bell rings, a nickel sounds a whistle and a penny fires a blank cartridge. If one pretends to be asleep when the box Is passed, it wakens hlro with a watchman's rattle, and a-kodak takes his picture. Unfortunately the name and postoffice address of the in ventor are not given. There are a number of good deacons here who would like to get into communication with him.
