Editor Times: I
In the summer of 1907, the Agrl- I
cultural College conducted an. or
chard survey of Wasco county. In
tho bulletin published giving an .ac
count of it, we find In the Hood
River valley six soils mentioned
gravel soil, sandy soil, black shot.
red shot, volcanic ash and red clay.
To those who are acquainted with
our beach soil here, It will compare
favorably with the Hood River soil.
Tho elevation ranges from 100 feet
lo 2000 feet with an average of 818
foot 58 per cent of it irrigated.
Hero on the Bay side of tho county
how many hundred acres have we
that has an elevation of 50 feet to
COO feet, that Is covered with brush
that would grow fruit trees with
out Irrigation either besides fruit
that Is gTOwn without irrigation is
considered better flavored and keeps
longer. One of our moBt pressing
needs Is a thrifty, enorgotlc class of
settlers that will take and clean up
these lands and plant fruit trees.
Tho business men with capital can
be of groat assistance In encouraging
that class of settlers either by In
dividual effort or through an asso
ciation as they arc men with small
capital looking for a ten or fifteen
aero tract to buy, at the present
time very few of those aro fo: sale.
Tho land that Is for sale Is held in
largo tracts. The business men
should see that these tracts are cut
up bo that the men with small means
could make a lioM,o for himself.
There are numbers of mon with fam
ilies working in the logging camps
and mills that would be glad to work
making homes If there was an asso
ciation to assist them. Men with
small means nre coming in here all
the time with no clianco to get a
Btnall tract and going out again to
help build up other places that have
associations to help them. If tho
business men of Marshfleld would
by concerted effort, see that the men
Of ppiall means coming hero had a '
t)hanw to buy ft small tract of land
at a fnfr v'itV'iou IUq fnrmlng pop-'
illation would soon bo doubled alld
tho Increased business of all kinds, .
would amply repay them for tho ef
fort. A FRUIT GROWER.
A Great Advantage to
One tit the most pressing questions
which a union of the fruit growers
could h5lp solve would be tho ques
tion of the best varieties of winter
apples to -plant and those who are
planting trees now it would be much
better if they knew of two or pos
sibly three varieties that would be
best for planting. While the writer
thinks that on both forks of Coos
Bay river, around Sumner and other
places situated as they are, ithe
Newtown and Spitzerburgh apples
could be raised successfully, yet an
exposed hillsides and where the salt
air strikes It would need an apple
especially suited to those places that
has good "keeping qualities, combin
ed with high flavor, as It is the, flavor
that makes the high price of the
apple, when placed on the market.
If the growers could agree on one
or two varieties of winter apples for
those places, so the guess work of
ordering and planting trees would
be eliminated, it wotild be a groat
advance of the fruit growing Inter
ests. At the present time each one
is planting to suit his own ideas
or to suit the Ideas of a fruit tree
agent who has a high priced special
variety for sale.
To a stranger wishing to see the
farming community, one of the easi
est trips Is too start up Coos River
on tho launch Tioga, as he views
the orchards along the river, he will
wonder that wo obtain as good
prices as wo do, while a splendid
start was made last year much re
mains to be done before the trees
are In condition to grow first class
apples. If the farmers could have
their pruning done on the old or
chards so they could give then a
thorough spuzlng with the lime, sul
phur and salt spray before the end
of February, it would make a great
change in tho appearance of tho
trees, tho enrller It is applied the
better It will kill the moss.

THIS U IS
Will Give Months Labor to
Make Better Road to
I "have a few thoughts and a per
sonal proposition In regard to a
wagon road from Myrtle Point to
Roseburg that might be of interest
to the public.
We cavely noed a road that can
be traveled at all times of the year,
even should we get two or three
railroads, which do not seem to bo
progressing very fast in this direc
tion. I think if worked up in a proper
manner that there could be a good
many thousand dollars in subscrip
tions in both Douglas and Coos coun
ty, which with what automobile com
panies and In conjunction with the
two companies courts might assist,
the project could be put through.
I think the times Is overripe right
now and by unity of action will go.
1 1, for one. will contribute one month
labor if some one will furnish a good
team and feed.
I have had plenty of experience in
the handling and care of teams. I
have heard others say they would
contribute in labor and I believe
much could be raieed in this way.

Burglar Alarms, etc. All sorts of

Tho Eugene Guard says: "Tho
people of Gardlnor, Douglas county,"
remarked a traveling man here,
"want a county of their own as well
as Drain and Cottago Grove. They
think that western Lane and western
Douglas might combine to tho bet
terment of tho two sections, which
nro now entirely undor different or
ganizations." "Gardiner," ho continued In ex
planation, "Is tho seaport of Douglas
county and Florence of Lane county.
Tho character of both towns Is
about tho Bamo, and the sections
surioundlug each other aro nlso
very similar. Neither section has
any vital interest In common with
any of tho Interior points of elthor
Douglas or Lane county, and nn
inthc)' const county similar to Coos
would surely bo moro satisfactory
to tho people of both districts."
A bystander wondered what tho
population of such a county would
ho, and tho visitor ndm'tted that it
would bo small. However, ho
thought by taking In Drain nnd that
section on ono side, nnd drawing
the lino In I.ano county east of
Mnpleton homo distance, the prop
erty valuation would bo equal to
ono-liulf of that of tho whole of Dou
glas county at present,
Gnrdlner would bo tho logical
county seat. That port would bo
near Floronco nnd Sluslnw districts,
nnd not far from uprlver section In
Douglas county. A nnmo for tho
now county might bo Umpqun, SIus
law, Coast or tho pnmo of some
famous mnn, ns Applcgate or Mc
Laughlin, who aro so c'osely con
nected with Oregon history.
