CROPS-WEATHER. BULLETIN, NO. .
For Week Ending Saturday, April 4,
1891. ' .
Oeegox Weatheb Bureau,)
Central Office, Portland, Oregon. )
This bulletin is made up from reports
received from 173 correspondents. The
various conditions and prospects as re
ported are given. Statments made are
from written reports of reliable men in
every section of the state.
Cool temperatures, frosty nights,
showers, fresh winds rtid two cloudless
days have been the weather character
istics for the week. While the temper
ature has been below the normal for this
season of the year, yet there has been a
gradual raise, but slow, in the heat
each day. The frosts were general and
frequent, but owing to the retarded state
of fruit buds and vegitation there was
no damage done. The showers helped
to keep the soil wet, thus delaying
spring seeding, tne dampness ana cool
winds have not been favorable to young
and some loss therefrom is reported.
Light hailstorms doing no damage, oc
curred in many sections on the 26th and
27th ulto. Snow fell in Lake county to
depth of two inches on the 26th.
While the weather conditions are not
favorable to a rapid advancement of
vegetation, yet it is rather beneficial, as
it. allows the roots to gather strength
and gives a slow but healthy growth.
Fall wheat is reported : to: "be j better
stooled and rooted than for. many years.
. .Spring seeding in Southern Oregon is
well along. In the Willamette vauev it
is greatly delayed, except on the higher
land. . In Eastern Oregon in some sec
trons it is half, done, in others just com
mencing. The acreage of spring sown
grain will be larger than last year. .
The cool weather continues to check
advancement of fruit, hence is beneficial
to it, as it is less liable to be injured by
late frosts. Fruit is farther advanced In
Jackson, Josephine and Benton counties
than in an v other sections of the state.
The snow is gradually leaving the foot-
niiis ana in the uoast range it is nearly
all gone. Warmer weather seems ap
proaching, the , grass is growing and
stock are gettiug along very well.
The general health conditions are re
ported to be good. Colds are less fre
quent and no unusual sickness prevails.

The New Steamboat Company.
The Dalles, Portland & Astoria Navi
gation company organized Saturday
evening and elected the following
officers : Robt. Mays, president ; M. T.
Nolan, vice-presfdent ; ;H, M. Beall,
secietary; G. V. Bolton, treasurer. -s
The new company will let the contract
for the first steamboat immediately and
will push things. 'Jt is suggested and
favorably considered too' by the board
that the new boat be christened the
"Gov. Pennoyer." " The idea is a capital
one, and -surely no one is more worthy
of the honor than his excellency, as he
has been untiring in his efforts for an
open river from the first of his official
iife. He will leave nothing undone that
that the portage road may be in readi
ness for the steamboats when completed.
John Oilllon in Refined Comedy.-
Refined comedy, in this country has
never had a more urgent worker than
Mr. Dillion. His characters in his va
rious plays are all true to nature, and
are seen in the every day walks of life.
His classification of comedy eraces all
farcical and unnatural situations,, and
sustains a dignity above the " average
horse-play features that invite the public
to a legitimate theatre. Mr. Dillion's
engagement in this city will be hailed
with delight by" his old-time admirers,
and his : popular comedy "Wanted the
Earth" with its realistic situations,
brilliant features and pure comedy vein,
will undoubtedly meet with a warm re
ception at the opera house tonight. -

Is Disease a Punishment?
- . The following advertisement. Published
by a prominent western patent medicine
house would indicate that they regard
disease as a punishment for sin : .
"Do you wish to know the quickest
way to cure a sever cold? We will tell
you. To cure a cold qickly, it must be
treated before the cold has become set
tled in the svstem. This can always be
done if you choose to, as nature in her
kindness to man gives timely warning
and plainly tells you in nature's way,
that as a punishment for some indiscre
tion, you are to be afflicted with a cold
unless you choose to ward it off bv
prompt action. The first symptoms of a
cold, in most cases, is a dry, loud cough
ana sneezing, rue cough is soon followed
by a profuse watery expectoration and
the sneezing by a prosuse watery dis
charge from the nose. In severe cases
there is a thin white coating on the
tongue. What to do? It is only necessary
to take Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in
double doses every hour. That will greatly
lessen the severity of the cold and in
most cases will effectually counteract it,
and cure what would have been a severe
cold within one or two davs time. Trv it
and be convinced." Fifty "cent bottles" for
saie Dy snipes x Ji-inersiey, druggists.

Scarcity of Water In Europe.
One . of the greatest inconveniences
arising from the frost has been a scarcity
of water. No rain worth mentioning
has fallen since November, and the little
water arising from a partial rrw.lt; Qf
snow on two or three occasions has not
been able to penetrate the frost bound
soil. Consequently , there has been
nothing to flrtsh springs or fill ponds,
while in very many instanced the pomps
attached to wells are frozen up. How
the autumn sown crops will emerge from
their winter quarters under thesnow re
mains to.be seen, but it will "be sur
prising if they come oat unscathed.
Tares and winter beans are likely to
suffer more than wheat.
For farmers who keep much lire stock -
the outlook is not cheering, as the
chances of early feed are poor indeed. It
is true that any promise of feed at this
period of the year, after a mild season, is
often delusive, bat this year, when mild
weather comes, a start will be made
with bare pastures and a very poor pros-
pec for turaiptopa and early rye ox
tares. So far as can be told at present,
however, market gardeners have Buf
fered more than farmers from the pro
longed and severe frost, as great quanti
ties of celery, broccoli and other vege
tables have been injured or entirely
spoiled, and there is no chance of put
ting in early peas or beans. London

- Excursion Boats in Winter.
The big fleet of white painted, side
wheel summer excursion boats are in the
midst of Their long winter rest at the
South Brooklyn basins. Viewed from
the decks of the Thirty-ninth street ferry
boat they form a picturesque spectacle
as they lie side by side or in long lines
among the tall masted black ocean sail
ing craft and steamships. They are in
contrasting positions also with many
small and graceful yachts, which are
slumbering away the time until the
spring breezes will stretch their sails and
they will skip out to see old ocean again.
Not all the iron steamships of the Coney
Island line are among the idle white
hulled sidew heelers. One of them at
least took the perilous and venturesome
voyage by ocean to Florida and, with a
band of music on board to tempt the
tourist to choose her ahead of her rival,
is daily making the trip from Jackson
ville to Palatka on the St. Johns river,
in Florida. When with returning warm
weather the land of flowers ceases to al
lure and Conev Island's charms return
to bloom again, the long ocean trip in
the pleasure boat must.be taken again.
but it is safe to say not many will bid
for the task of reaching New York past
stormy Hatteras by that nap. Brooklyn
A Cold Weather MeaA.
. There is a specimen fiend abroad, in
winter weather especially, whom it were
calumny to call human. The sole ob
ject for which this fiend prowls the earth
is to steal up to yon unawares and put
an icy hand on some exposed part of
your person with the inquiry, "Aren't
my hands coldr The shock is enough
to kill yon, but it is not the purpose of
your tormentor to put you to death
speedily.' It is his purpose, rather, to
reserve you for experimental practice.
Winter weather lasts in this ' climate
from four to five months, and be aims to
get in his fine -work from two to three
tunes a day for that period. -
Often the fiend is related to you by
ties of consanguinity, and occasionally
he is on terms of intimacy that admit of
the dwelling beneath the same roof, bat
neither ties of blood nor bonds of friend
ship can palliate his offense. There
should be a penalty fitted to tbe crime,
and in pondering the matter over, after
being victimized to the extent that I
jibbed at every footfall, and am a regu
lar symphony in goose flesh, I have de
cided that the only adequate punish
ment for such an offense against human
ity and good breeding is a shotgun.
