Chemcketa, in a letter to the Standard

placed another Mount Hood exhihi

which is one of his hestetrorts, and quite

Dal Is, the lare moss-covered boulders,
swift water and rather dim peak, beiuj;
very well executed indeed, showing
much painstaking as to detail, but the
sky is open to criticism as a departure
from ordinary tints, but which may be
true to nature sometimes, but certainly
not ahvaj.s. It is of pale green hue
like foliage viewed through a window
curtained with gauze or covered with

CONDITION' OF THE SHIP.
We do not consider the steamer lost, by
a :y means. She lays in a good place,
on sandy bottom, does not leak a drop,
and will come off all right sis
foon as she is f"Uy lightered.
! She went on drawing j ev 'nteen feet of

tugs at low water near enough to gei out
'aline. As to

Portland Daily Standard April 18th.
At the annual meeting of the stock
holders of the Oregon and Washington
Fish Propag; ti m company, held in this
city lahtTue d ty evening, the directors
submitted the following annual report
We, vour directors beg leave to submit
the following report of our work for the
past vear. eliding this day:
Referring to our last annual report it
will be seen that on the 2d of April, 1878.
our company wasS4,333 87 in debt; there
being at the same date due the company
on account of unpaid assessments So,
We have endeavord to collect the de
linquent assessments, but regret to sav
that until present time have only suc
ceeded in obtaining So75 11 leaving still
a balance of $4.(S7 ZQ unpaid.
The expenses of carrying on our oper
ations the past year have therefore been
paid from funds realized from parties
avIio have taken additional stock withiu
the past year
We refer you to the secretary's report
herewith for details of moneys received
and paid out since last annual meeting.
Our largest item of expense was for
tin construction of a dam upon Clear
creek, and Hume to convey water from
ssiid dam into hatching house. We ob
iained bids for this work, and, after due
consideration, awarded the contract for
b lilding dam and flume to Mr. Calbath,
who perfinned the work under the
.sunci Nion of Capt. Harlow, for whose
.-kill siiul energy in forwarding the works
ot the c Miipany we feel obliged.
The d Mil and flume were completed in
Julv, an I rema ned in good working
o dcr until the following -November.
U e had also to build a rack across the
Clackamas river, which, owing to scarci
ty of funds, was not constructed as
.strongly as our after experience of
freshets upon that river indicated neces
sary. We began taking salmon spawning
September Jlth, and by the 22d of the
same month as many fish were obtained
daily as could be conveniently handled.
The work of stripping fish was carried
on daily from the Silh until the. 2J)th of
September, during which two million
and eighty-one thousand (2,081,C0) eggs
were obtained,four hundred and seventy
eight female and about double that
number or nine hundred and fifty-six
male salmon having been spawned. On
the 2i)th, of September the Clakamas
river rose very rapidly, swept away the
salmon rack, permitting all fish yet un
shipped to pass up the. river. Before
this rise of the river a large number of
salmon were seen below ihe rack, but
after three days of high water none were
to be found, and therefore the operations
of spawning cesiscd for the year on Sep
The eggs obtained were properly cared
for and very few losses occurred until
November 7th, when the water supply
to the hatching house failed, making it
necessary to leniove the voting fish to a
tank constructed in Clackamas river; in
this operation some were lost. Novem
ber 17th was turned into the river 300,000
oung fish, and on the 2tith of Deeembir
GOO.000 more were placed in Clackamas

During tlie Year we have had frrejit
dilliciiltyin collecting sufficient funds to
carry on our work at hatching in an eco
nomical way; in fsict, your directors, in
addition to paying their assessments,
have been compelled to make personal
advances to the company to prevent the
work being stopped. Hereafter we hop 2
that sufficient funds, from the fish com
missioners of Oregon and Washington
territory, may be relied upon to defray
the expenses of one or even two such
establishments as we now have. We
would suggest that the operations of the
company be continued this season attlie

In harvest-times, when fields and woods
Out-dazzle sunset's glow,
And scythes clang music throug the land,
It is too late to sow.
Too kite! too late!
It is too late to sow.
In wintry dajs, when weary earth
Lies cold in pulseless sleep,
With not a blossom on her shroud,
His too late to reap.
Too late! too late!
It is too late to reap.
When blue-eyed violets are astir.
And new-born grasses creep,
And young birds chirp, then sow betnnec,
And thou betimes shall reap.
Then sow ! then sow !
And thou betimes shall reap.

Of some worn chancel standing ta'l
With maiden hearts unknown of pas
