C. E. Linton, of Waldport. The
story, which is very entertaining,
takes its netting in the vicinity of

tea or soar in an aeroplane; and he
pilots his machine through many a
hidden cave along the Oregon coast.

plot as sensational as that of Jules
Verne's "Three Thousand Leagues
Beneath the Sea." The reader may.
therefore, look hopefully for the no
expected. In this respect he will not
be disappointed in "The Earth Mo

Clark county. Wachinston. con
tains sereral thousand acres of
thrifty prune orchards. Like their
brother prune men in Oregon, they
have not always secured the full re
turns in cash for their labor because
of the unsatisfactor) markets !n
which they were obliged to sell their
tons of dried prunes.
This year those Washington prun
aries have dided to keep "George"
out of the selling game and are go
ng to do it themselves. They have
completed ire organization of a co
operative association with a mem
bership whose combined orchards
cover about 2000 acres.
The association will build its own
warehouses. The growers have also
formed an alliance with the Ore go a
Growers Co-Operative association
and will sell their entire prune crop
this year through the extensive mar
ket system which is being perfected
by this large and grDwing Oregon
co-operative selling agency.
Professor C. I. Lewis. general
manager of the Oregon Growers' Co
operative association, has made ser
eral visits to the Clark county prune
districts and. through his efforts.
a union has bee.n brought about.
