Mr. J. S. Schenck presented us with a
sprig of lemons that were raised on Mr.
Murphy's ranch at Marysville, CaL, that
are as fine specimens as we ever saw ; in
fact, Southern California is not in it, in
beauty, size and elegance. The MaryE

It is just thirty-one dajrs till fishing
season opens, and fishermen are antici
pating a big catch; There are reasons
for such an -opinion. Four years ago
the run was very large and the spawn of
that year will have just matured this
year. Experience shows that the fourth
year after every large run it is repeated.
The numerous rises in the river have
also been favorable, and very high water
this year is an accomplished fact, all of
which argues well for a prosperous fish
ing season. " .'

William Ireland, jr., state geologist of
California, will come to Oregon next
month for the - purpose of studying the
geology of this section and will spend
four months among the fossil 'beds,
studying,1 besides the different forma
tions of the past stages of the earth, the
evidences of animal life belonging to
these periods. The excuse California
has for researches in Oregon is that our
state is allied geologically to California.
Geology does uot recognize state lines.
Oregon discharged her geologist, Prof.
Thos. Condon, several years ago, merely
because the position cost $500 per year,
and now Oregon, the richest state in the
Union for the paleontologist, is being
neglected by herself and plundered by
The John. Day fossil beds are some
thing entirely new, and contain fossils
not known to exist in any other part of
the world. Yale college has over 100
different specimens of ancient animals
which have never before been duplicated,
and possibly never will be again, even
from the same fields. - For seven years
prior to 1882 Yale sent out expeditions,
and employed Mr. L. S. Davis of this
city as guide. Her museum has been
filled with John Day fossils, containing
not only new species of formerly-discovered
families, but the fossilized re
mains of entirely new genera. In 1882
the geological survey replenished the
national museum with specimens' won
derful and rare from the John Day fossil
beds. In like manner the Princeton ex
pedition of 1889 robbed the . beds of
hatever had been exposed by the rains
of preceding years. , The Academy of
Science of Philadelphia, also, plundered
Oregon an entire summer since that
time and the year before another party
from the same place secured rich treas
ures of an age which can never be re
. It is time Oregon took some precau
tions calculated to save for herself these
valuable relics of ages extinct from mem
ory. 'and otherwiee from . knowledge.
Prof. Condon, alone, has a few of these
fossils, but a lamentable paucity com
pared to the inestimable treasures of
Yale. Now, after an absence of vandals
from other states of several years, Cali
fornia proposes to send her state geolo
gist to make another clean-up. . Of
course there will be valuable fossils ex
posed,. for it has been several years since
these fields were picked over, and the
rains, particularly of the late winter,
which have been excessive, will have
uncovered rich treasures. ' '
If Oregon was alive to her own in
terests she would stop this wholesale
despoiling of her fossil beds, and em
ploy a geologist to gather these fossils
for herself. If she will not, a few citi
zens of The Dalles, by acting promptly
and sending out 'at once a man who
knows these fields as well as Mr. Davis,
could secure the cream of the exposures
before Mr. Irelan's arrival, and estab
lish a museum in this city which would
be sought for thousands of miles, and
second to none in the world.
