OREGON AND WASCO.
The letters in the Oregonlan on the
subject of Oregon and its interests are
decidedly interesting. They are full of
hope for the state, and all indicate that
the turning point in Oregon's history
from tne old days of spending to those
of saving, has been passed. When the
Willamette valley was first settled, nat
urally from the remoteness from mark
ets the chief industry was stock-raising,
because the flocks could be driven to
market. This era did not last long, and
sa the proliflcness of the soil became
known and markets available, the stock
man gave place to the wheat-grower.
The example set by Californians of
growing nothing but wheat was followed
just so long as prices were high. The
soil responded so generously that even
this farming was done in a slip-shod
and slovenly manner. But Bteadily de
clining prices, heavy store bills, fol
lowed by mortgages given to obtain
temporary relief and lasting annoyance,
caused the more thrifty of the farmers
to turn their attention to other crops.
With thousands of acres of stubble,
with abundant pastures, and no incon
siderably supply of mast, the farmers
op to the time mentioned had not taken
the trouble to raise hogs, because to
keep them oat of the grain fields re
quired good fences, and, though such
material was certainly plentiful enough,
good fences required considerable work,
and work was not what the farmer of
those days was looking for. There were
too many deer in the woods, and the
fishing was too fine to be neglected for
the prosy employment of mauling rails
and laying up worm fences. The wheat
crop was raised, hauled to the riyer
bank, and turned over to the merchant
to apply on the store account. It was a
eeason of big prices, big crops, big store
bills, big spendings, and big deficits at
the end of the year.
Those days are gone forever. Shift-
lessness has given place to thrift. In
stead of importing bacon and ham,
shoulder and lard from the East, we are
supplying ourselves and . finding a small
quantity for export. Instead of car
loads of butter coming from Iowa, we
are making butter to ship. Instead of
eastern or California eggs, the Oregon
hen is gladdening the farmer with her
. lay, a catchy song, with a jingle of coin
in it, coin from the east, where the hen
f rnit of Oregon is finding market ; coin
from Manhattan, the home of the Stuy
vesants and the Van Benselears, to pay
for eggs laid within sound of the Pacific
to feed the 400 in the metropolis on the
Atlantic. Our cattle are going East by
the train load, our sheep are sent by the
thousands, and a constant stream of
Oregon potatoes are following them to
feed the spudless of the East. We have
learned a thing or two by bard knocks,
and the result is surprising us.
There are some other places that are
going to be surprised, too, in the near
future. One of them is California, and
the others are some of the eastern states
that have been buying California's fruit
She is going to have a rival, and one
that will make her hustle to hold her
supremacy. Wasco county is going to
assist largely in accomplishing this re
sult. It is the best fruit county in the
state, and therefore in the world. You
just mark our words that inside of five
years Wasco county apples will be
known all over the United States. The
winter apple is king. There is never
too many of him. Side by side with the
vaunted oranges of California and
Florida he bids for popular favor, and
brings the highest price, bushel for
bushel. The apple is on top. He is
going to stop there. He was the king of
fruits in Paradise before the fall,, the
choice of the first lady in the land, and
the first gentleman. Waeco county is
his home because it is the nearest Para
dise of, any spot he ever found. We are
raising him numerously. Three years
from now we will ship 200,000 bushels
of him. Ten years will see the figuers
up to near the 'million bushel mark.
We know that outsiders will think we
are trying our lungs through our Easter
bonnet, but we know what we are talk
ing about. The young trees are grow
ing, beginning to bear. Hood River has
thousands of them, Mill Creek has other
thousands. Mosier and Dufur and 3
Mile are up in the front ranks, and
thousands of more trees are being set
every year. Six thousand trees are go
ing out in one orchard near The Dalles,
and every precinct and neighborhood in
the fruit belt can tell a similar tale.
We used to be on the old lay out of
raising wheat and buying everything
else ; of selling cattleTand buying all else
we needed. Those were our two indus
tries. We are shipping hogs and hog
products, we are shipping eggs and but
ter, we are shipping canned salmon, and
carloads of the royal fish from The
Dalles grace the. tables of the money
kings of New YorK. We are shipping
sea bass." We are supplying Butte
and Helena and Kaneas, Denver, Lead-
ville, Salt Lake, the cattle men of Wy
oming and the miners of Montana, with
strawberries, $100,000 worth of crimson
lusciousness every spring. We are ship
ping peaches and grapes and carloads of
muskmelons and watermelons, that have
filled their round bellies from the honey
dews that fall . on our hillsides. Be
sides this we ship more wool than any
town in the United States.
We have only began. Wasco's future
is in her orchards, and that future is in
deed a bright one. ;
Patronize home industries if you want
your town to prosper. No matter what
they are, if you need their products buy
from your own people. That will build
up your town, will keep money at home,
and will encourage others to put their
money into business enterprises. Spo
kane has adopted this system, and every
citizen feels it a bounden duty to in
quire, when he desires to buy anything,
if that thing is made in Spokane. If it
is, he buys it and will take no other.
That is business sense, and Spokane is
feeling the effects of it. There is not
an article manufactured in Spokane, but
that has run all competitors out of the
market, and has reached out into the
surrounding territory for markets.
Bear this in mind all the time and
spend your money with your own peo
ple. ASSIST NATURE

Pleasant Pellets are
the best. Once
used they are al
ways In favor
Their secondary ef
fect is to keep the
bowels open and
regular, not to fur
ther constipate, as
is the case with
other pills. Hence, their great popularity
with sufferers from habitual constipation,
piles and their attendant discomfort ana
manifold derangements. The " Pellets "
are purely vegetable and perfectly harmless
in any condition of the system. No care is
required while using them; they do notr
lDienere Willi ice lllc l, iiaoits or occupa
tion, and produce no pain', griping or shock
to the system. They act in a mild, easy and
natural way and there is no reaction after
ward. Their help lasts.
The Pellets cure biliousness, sick and
bilious headache, dizziness, costiveness, or
constipation, sour stomach, loss of appetite,
coated tongue, indigestion, or dyspepsia,
windy belchings, "heartburn," pain and
distress after eating, and kindred derange
ments of the liver, stomach and bowels.
In proof of their superior excellence, it can
be truthfully said, that they are always
adopted as a household remedy after the
first trial. Put np in sealed, glass vials,
therefore always fresh and reliable. One
little " Pellet " is a laxative, two are mildv
cathartic. As a "dinner pill," to promote
digestion, or to relieve distress trom over
