After the Doctor
The doctor's work is only half
what has to be donelfor the pa
tient. And if the druggist be
lacking in ability and care the
prescription might as 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.

FAVOR NEW LAW
At a receut meeting of the Wasco
County Fruit Grow em' Association res
olution were adopted favoring the
new horticultural bill framed by a
committee of 19 at a meeting of the
State Horticultural Society and now
before the legislature. These resolu
tiona were lit part as follows:
There has been much fault found
with those whose duty It was to look
after and prevent or destroy horti
cultural pests and diseases and nearly
all attempts on the part of those in
authority have met with opposition,
A great many old and worthless or
chards continue to spread infectious
diseases to other orchards. We believe
that under an individual head, who
would be solely responsible to the
people, the owners of these Infected
trees could be convinced that it is
for the good of all that such diseased
orchards should be treated and de
stroyed. In this manner a policy
could be carried out that would con
vince the owner that the work of the
commissioner of horticulture is con
siructive and not destructive.
The faults of the present laws are
not, we believe, in the individual
members, whose duty it is to enforce
them, but in the system at present in
vogue. We believe that power should
be vested in an individual head and
that the head be held responsible to
his constituency and that if the life
of his office depend upon his succeed
ing it would prove more effectual than
w hen vested in so many heads.
Under the present law the members
of the board are not expected to make
their living off the office they are ap
pointed to but from some other busi
ness. This fact, of itself, puts the
sting of disappointment in the enforce
ment of the law for to insist on its
enforcement might touch the econom
ic interest of the member of the board
and to protect his own monetary wel
fare he becomes slack In the enforce
ment of the law. The services nec
essary are of enough importance to
employ the entire time and attention
of a well-drilled corps of efficient ex
perts. Appointlva power under the new law
would be vested in the Governor of
Oregon, the president of the state hor
ticultural society, and the horticultur
ist of the Oregon Agricultural College
at Corvallis, Instead of the governor,
secretary of state and Btate treasurer.
We believe that this change is of the
greatest concern to fruit growers of
our state and we ask you to support
this bill in behalf of your ow n constitu
ency. The said bill is that drawn up
by the committee of nineteen mem
bers choBen by the state horticultural
society of Oregon in convention as
sembled at Portland, November 22,

BLOOM AS YET I
According to its annual custom, the
Davidson Fruit Company has been
nursing along for the past few weeks
a number of twigs taken from trees of
different varieties throughout the val
ley, the object being to predict the
number of fruit spurs on the different
As yet not all have put forth these
shoots. The older Spitz trees, howev
er, already show an average number of
buds. The Jonathans are full of buds,
as is usually the case with this pro
lific bloomer. The Winter Bananas
show a goodly number of fruit spurs,
but not as many as the Jonathans.
The Winter Banana twigs, however,
were taken from young trees. New
towns are not yet along far enough to
predict their probable yield. Black
Twigs show a full bloom. Baldwin and
Ben Davis buds are not all developed,
but the Ben Davis twigs show the
least fruit buds of any of the varieties.
CONFER ON RIVER ROAD
Railroad Officials and Multnomah Co.
Court Adjust Differences
Officials of the O.-W. R. & N. and the
Multnomah county court conferred
yesterday in regard to a proposition
of constructing a portion of the pro
posed Hood River scenic road on the
railway company's right of way along
the Columbia river. .
If possible arrangements will be
made with the company to allow this,
as the old survey indicates that the
roa'dway, if constructed as originally
planned, would be unusually steep In
places, where an easy grade could be
obtained by encroaching on the rail
road right of way.
The proposition was broached to the
company's officials recently by the
county commissioners, and they after
wards received a letter informing them
that the railroad's representatives
were ready to confer with them at any
