Mr. A. Bettingen, Sr., in a recent
letter, gives a description of his travels.
He was at the time of his writing in
Rome, having just returned from a
trip to Jerusalem and through the Holy

Berlin j and then spend some time in
Paris, where he has numerous friends,
so that he will probably not return to

Harry Hebe is the saddest man in
town this morning. At the giving away
of the bicycles last night he, by a won
derful stroke of bad luck, was awarded
both of them, hence bis sorrow. It is a
touching sight to see him standing be
tween the two wheels, while his eyes
have a far-away look, and his lips mur
mur that old refrain, "How happy could
be with either, were- t'other dear
charmer away." What .is it makes
Harry sad? Because be isn't twins. "
The water commission has ordered
what is known as theold Pentland reser
voir on the bluff on Court 9treet, emptied
and the work has been going on for sev
eral days. There is no means of letting
the water out only through the overflow
gates, and as soon as the water is re
duced to this level, the ditch is made
deeper, and the water again allowed to
run. As the reservoir is twelve feet
deep it will take several days before the
water is all out of it. This reservoir has
not been used for a long time, and we
understand the intention of tbe water
commission is to sell the ground.
The O. R. & N. has made a rate from
Portland to Spokane, of 50 per cent, of
the rate charged from St. Paul to the
same point. This will open up quite a
trade to the Portland jobber, but as it
cuts into Spokane's business that city is
not at all pleased with the qpte. The
traffic managers of the Great Northern
and the Northern Pacific were in consul
tation with General Freight Agent
Campbell at Portland yesterday, for
several hours, but that gentleman in
sisted upon maintaing the cut.
The authorities of - the East Oregon
normal school have sent in for a large
slice of their appropriation, but Secre
tary oi State JLincaid thinks they are
not entitled to it that way. He thinks the
only way sanctioned by the constitution
for the payment of money is upon bills
properly audited by him. The under
standing of the institutions getting ap
ropriations has been that they could
araw it quarterly and spend it as they
pleased, but Mr. K.incaid says it is in
tended for certain purposes - and the
vouchers therefor must be filed and aud-
d in his office.
Dr. E. J. Thomas, who formerly re
sided at Hood River, but who recently
was stationed at the Spokane Indian
agency, in his professional capacity, vis
ited Hood River, Monday, on his "way to
-Monmouth, where he has purchased a
drugstore. He was one of the charter
members of Waucoma lodge, K. ot P. of
Hood River, and hip brother knights
gave him a reception in tbe shape ot
banquet and an evening spent in social
enjoyment. The doctor, by the way
was one of those who were on the ferry
boat that broke loose a few weeks ago at
the Spokane agency and came near tak
ing its load down over the rapids.

Season Opened Unfavorably at Astoria.
At Astoria the fishing season opened
under rather unfavorable auspices. The
weather was exceedingly boisterous, and
but a small proportion of the boats ven
tured ont. Of those that did take the
risk, none went near tbe bar, where the
fishing is generally best. In conse
quence, tbe catch was small, probably
averaging six or seven to the boat. A
number of men were doubtless engaged
in fishing before the season opened, sev
eral bring from twentv-five to thirtv
fish, but, as a rule, those who were
known to have been out but one night,
returned with from three to ten salmon
each. Cannerymen and fisherman alike
are of the opinion that the pack this
year will be small, on account of the low
water, for, without exception, since the
inception of the . salmon industry, the
catch has been small every year in
which the volume of water in tbe river
waa comparatively light. The gillnet
men will be most seriously affected, as
they reap their harvest when the water
is high and muddy. The traps and
seines are expected to do much better
than usual, tbe conditions, being favora
ble for the former especially. "
A Terminal FolA.
At a recent meeting of representa
tives of trans-continental lines, held in
San Francisco, the question of making
The Dalles a terminal point was dis
cussed. We are told that the Northern
Pacific took the ground that Tbe Dalles,
Portland & Astoria Navigation Com
pany must be considered as a factor,
and that tbe other roads in fixing their
rates would so consider it, and could
therefore compete for its trade.. Just
what the final agreement was we have
not been able to learn, but that this
view of the matter will eventually be
adopted is almost certain.' Last year
this point was given terminal rates on
wool, thus making a saving of $ 10 per
ton, amounting on tbe entire product to
almost $50,000. Should the terminal
rates be given it would make The Dalles
the supply town for a large section of
The Herrlclc Cannery.
A visit to Mr. Herrick's cannery this
morning showed that everything is in
readinees there to handle all the fish
that can be procured this ; year. The
building is a spacious one, and as Mr.
Hernck has been in the business for
years, he has put in every modern im
provement.VThe boiler ja of unlimited
capacity, and tbe arrangements for can
ning are perfect, nearly all tbe work
even to the soldering of the cans, being
done by machinery. The lower floor
will be used for cleaning the fish, and
ft' track has been built from the railroad
so that fish arriving on tbe cars, or those
hauled io wagons, can be unloaded from

Tbe above is a very efficient remedy for

and prevents the fipread of the cnrl leaf,
but removes all lichens and keeps the
In tbe case of curl leaf, the greatest
good will result from the early spraying,
as it prevents to a large degree the dor
mant spores of this parasitic fungus
com id g to life, and destroys any that
may nave started.
To be most successful, this spray
should be applied just before the buds
swell in the spring. It can be used at
this time stronger than later, and should
be thrown upon tne trees when it is
warm.: - ...
