a trunk that hud becu felled inside of the
town. It was twenty-one feet iu circutn
frence eighty feet from the stump, while
this measured thirty-three feet above the
inequalities of thc roots. A gentleman
told me of a fir, sixty-two feet in girth as
far up as be could reach and this is on
the hills. General Crook told mo that
even this is surpassed by the red wood
forests, further south, and near the shore.
Of the last named variety are the excep

The moment I entered the Columbia
river I was amazed at the arboreal luxu
riance of the hills. It was a rich treat
to gazo once more on nature's favorite
hue, after passing four days on thc desert
and three more on thc ocean.
Ia all fruits but tropical ones, this
country is equal to California. Its cher
ries aid plums I have seen ; its apples j civilized "-lobe
ana pears i. nave neara oi, ana they are
just about iu proportion to the trees. Tho
cherries are nearly gone, and thc plums
began to come iu. One early variety is
already exaustcd. The curculio has not
discovered this country yet, and you can
generally tell how many plums you are
going to get by counting thc blossoms.
The size of them will depend upon the
space they have to grow in.
What would you think of a pair (not a
pair of plums) weighing ice poitmls ? I
have heard of such, and from what I have
seen of other thiDgs, I am persuaded to
believe it. If you show this letter to any
one you had better suppress tho writer's
name, for there are people who will cred
it all sorts of ghost stories, and yet reject
with scorn any material fact that con
flicts with their narrow experience.
The trip up the Columbia river is brim

glorious river- next to the Mississippi
and St. Lawrence, the greatest in North
America in its scenery far surpassing
the former, and equalling the latter.
