The ohlef object of. the meeting of
tha Hyland Fruitgrowers and tha apple
show was to revive the Interest of
every Sheridan rancher and to deter
mine the varieties of apples and other
fruits which were best adapted for cul
ture In this country. Mr. Miller, who
for a number of years was president of
Oreron Agricultural College, recom
mended to the fruit and apple-irrowera
of Sherldsn the plantlna of the Tellow
Kewtown Pippin.-Spltsenburg. Graven

with Sheridan soils and conditions,
which were tha basts of bis conclu

Sheridan was heir, ha said, to many
peculiar and advantageous features
which were destined to make It tha
premier apple and fruit aectlon of tha
Willamette Valley: depth and shot
character of the soil and high elevation,
combined with Ideal water and air
drainage, are advantages which Sheri

which minimizes fruit-tree dlsesses and
"Sheridan fruit, and especially tha
apples from our section, will always
find a ready market on account of tha
fine keeping qualities of our fruit. Mr.
Miller declared, "for tha growing sea
son of tha hill landa Is from three
weeks to a month longer than that of
other sections, and tha fruit Is delayed
In Ita maturity, making It a firm, well
preserved product, which will reach tha
New Tork and forelg-n market In aa
rood shape ss when It was picked from
tha tree. Blooming and maturing Is
delayed until lata In the growing sea
son and as a result there are fewer
crop failures In our fruit than In most
sections; cherries and prunes especially
are favored by this features of nature,
and the late rains can do no damage
to the bU'lllng cherry and prune trees;
strawberries mature In the Sheridan
country at least three weeks after those
of other section and their keeping
qualities are superb."

Tha most peculiar feature of tha
apple show was that every exhibit of
apples and pears was from old. neglect
ed orchards and trees, where disease
bad had full away and the trees suf
fered neglect and abuse; apples and
pears were exhibited that would com
pare most favorably with the fruit of
sections which hare commercial-bearing
orchards, been reared amid sclen
tlflc surroundings and treatment.
Sheridan baa 10.009 acres In plant

very few acres of bearing orchard are
aa yet In evidence, and scarcely any

Rer. John Boyd Speaks Before 300
Sunday School Workers.
rW are bringing up a generation
void of the consciousness of God. The
Bible haa been excluded from tha pri
vate and the public schools and our
children are deprived of their right to
moral Instruction, eminatlng from the
knowledge of God said Dr. John IL
Boyd, pastor of the First Presbyterian
Church, In speaking before 300 Sunday
school workers from various parts of
Multnomah County at ths First Pres
byterian Church Friday night.
Dr. Boyd, who made the leading ad
dress, took for his subject "The Scope
of the Modern Sunday School."
"The Sunday school Is tha greatest
department in church work," said Dr.
Boyd. "Its supreme work Is to teach
that the Bible answers all life Ques
tions It bad Its rise in England and
waa due to tha need to reach hosts of
neglected children. Today It meets a
most lamentable condition among us.
In our schools there Is no dlreot appeal
to the souL
"We are- permitted to teach Homer,
but not David; about ths lascivious
Gods of degenerate Greece, but not
about tha Jehovah of Israel; the poetry
of classic ancients, but not the parables
of Christ. We are bringing up a gen
eration void of tha consciousness of
Ood. And the times are beginning to
feel the reaulta of this policy. I have
not much avmnathv for the railroads
when their employee destroy their I
property, for the railroads, through
their methods, havs done more than
any others to rob them of God. In the
midst of such conditions the Sunday
school offers an effective medium
through which to Inculcate moral prin
ciples In the people."

from a survey of the situstlon. Is that
the Auditorium ought to be erected In

might have been satisfied with the

No Man is Stronger
Than His Stomach
A strong man is strong all over. No man can be
strong who is suffering irom weak stomach with its
consequent indigestion, or from some other disease
of the stomach snd its associated organs, which im
pairs digestion and nutrition. Far when the stomach
is weak or diseased there is a loss of the nutrition
contained in food, whioh is the source of all physical
strength. When a man "doesn't feel just right,"
when he doesn't sleep well, has aa uncomfortable
feeling in the stomach after eating, is languid, nervous, irritable and despond
cot, he is losing the nutrition needed to make strength.
