Au incident which illustrates one
of the curious features of the
'.swamp'' land operations in Oregon
was related the other day by a gentle
man from across the Cascades. A
tract of land in Lake county which
had been taken up under the swamp
land laws was about to be located by
settlers uuder the United States
homestead laws. The '"swamp" land
claimant, finding that the settlers
were likely lo make good their claims
should they bring the matter to a
contest, concluded that the safest
plan for him to pursue was to enter
the tract as "desert" land, which he
did. It was cither "swamp"' by rea
son of being Sunder water, or else
"desert" because there was not suffi
cient moisture upon it to sustain veg
etation. "One or t'other" filing he
thought would catch it. -Tidings.

The entertainment which closed
the school term in District No. 12, on
the evening of March G, consisted of
songs, recitations, colloquies, a nu
morous dialogue, the readiug of tho
paper, "The Sunset ftews, ably edit
ed and well read by Misses Carrie
Bartoldes and Nellie Busey. Burtie
Sale, as the old fashioned school
master preparing his unruly pupils
for a visit from the dreaded commit
tee man, brought down the house.
The crowning feature of the pro
gramme, however, was the collcquy
of the Seasens: Spring, personated
by Jennie Busey, Summer, by Katie
Christians, Autumn, Nellie Busey,
Winter, Carrie Bartoldes, and the

son was designated by n gilt badge
and an appropriate wreath, and in
suitable sonnets presented the year
with fruit flowers and grain, and re
ceived in return by a wave of the
magic wand the power to bless man
kind; they made a beautiful tableau.
Taken altogether it was a delight
ful occasion and one that will long
be remembered with pride and pleas
ure by the citizens of Young and
Walluski school district.
In closing tho teacher, Mrs. Busey,
awarded to each pupil beautiful floral
cards as prizes in scholarship and de

An almost unprecedented movement
in salmon has occurred recently, un
precedented at least at this timej of
the year. A few weeks since, when
certain interested parties iuNe.v York
attempted to break tho market by re
porting excessive stocks in Great
Britain, it was predicted, on the part
of tho "bear' interest, that prices for
this commodity would rule very low
this season. Iu February, a few
transactions were reported in futures
at low figures, and the market exhib
ited no life iu any direction. Only
low prices induced buyers to take
hold. At the close of that month tho
market began to show signs of im
provement, which feature has contin
ued to the present date. Recently
one order for English accsunt has
taken 60,000 cases Columbia river fish,
comprising three choice brands at
prices, respectively, $1.10, $1.12 aud
S1.15, L o." b. river. In addition to
this, other important transactions
have occurred that make the aggre
gate sales for English account about
153,000 cases, at an average price of
about S1.10 per dozen, f. o. b. This,
it must be .admitted, indicates some
confidence on the part of buyers,
particularly as the purchasers of this
salmon are in position to be well
informed as to the statistical position
of English markets. Spot quotations
in Great Britain aru now 22sS2G3
per case, accordiug to brands, and
stocks are reported well concentrated.
This, and the fact that the large con
sumption of salmon in England oc
curs during the months of May,
.Tune, July and August, for well
known reasons, gives a strong tone
to the market, and lends holders to
believe high prices will prevail dur
ing the next six months at least.
The large purchases that have al
ready been made will, no doubt, tend
to prevent a break in prices later in
the season. The packs that
ported as sold are as follews:
Fisherman's Packing Co
Devlin & Co
White Star Packiuj; Co

.. ir.,000
Badollet i Uo 10,000
Oceau CcnniuK Co 10,000

Aberdeen Packing Co 20,000
McGowen&Sou l.",003
Columbia Packing Co IS, 000
Thistle Packing Co 10,000
Pillar Rock Packing Co 10,000
Total Columbia river l"i,000
All of these packs are now owned
by English buyers, and.some of them
have been purchased at 1.15 per doz
en, which is the extreme figure paid
for the season. Transactions have
also been made iu Sacramento river
salmon, at prices ranging $1.12itfj.
S 1.15 per dozen, f. o. b. This is "an
anomalous condition of the market,
as Sacramento fish heretofore has not
generally ruled as high as Columbia
river packs. That it rules higher
this seasou is accounted for on the
ground that Sacramento river salmon
will be ready for shipment forty-five
to sixty days earlier thau that packed
on the Columbia, which, iu face of
the prospect of a bare market, is an
important consideration. Recently the
Australian market has been drained
by re-shipment uuder strong demand,
aud prices there have been materially
enhanced. Orders are reported from
that market for early shipment at a
limit of $1.20 per dozen here. The
condition of the Australian markets,
low freight rates to Liverpool, small
stocks in all domestic markets and
prospects of good prices for salmon '
here, make Sacramento river salmoa
very desirable, even more desirable
early in the season than Columbia '
river fish. Present indications point
to a good market throughout the sen-;
son. But giviug buyers the benefit '
of the contingency of a large pack, it
is not easy to see how lower prices '
are to be secured before August,!
even if the market reacts at all this !
year. English buyers have strong!
friends here, who aro likely to enter
the market whenever prices reach a
certain figure, aud who probablv will
thus protect their present purchases.

that G. W. Hume has declined a firm

the season. We submit that this
shows a strong condition of the mar
ket. With sales of lgO.000 to 190,000
cases at this date, n light stock in
English, Australian and eastern mar
kets, and with no carry-over stock on
this coast, the out look for the seasou
for canners is an encouraging one.
It has been reported that large prep
aration is being made on the Colum
bia nver. This is reported each sea
son. It is no doubt true that large
perchases of twine have been made,
but it must be remembered that few,
if any, new nets were provided last
season. Good authorities claim that
there will be no more boats out this
year than in 18S5. Canners pack all
they can every season, and there is no
reason to suppose this year will prove
an exception to the rule. No season
for many years has opened as auspi
ciously for the canning interest, and
whatever the pack may be, there is
reason to believe good prices will
prevail. SL F. Orocer and Country

The Western fever is a disease
which is very apt to attack the New
England farmer who has not been
able to get ahead in the world he
seems to think the far West a verit
able Eden, whose crops can be grown
without labor, and riches obtained
for the asking. Many a farmer who
has moved onto ihe new lands of
the far West with his family has
found, by sad experience, that his
dream of bliss was but an illusion
and has returned lo his New England
home, poorer in pocket but wiser in
Now let any of our Eastern farm
ers, who own" only :i small farm and
are discontented with their lot run
ning behind, as the saying is and
who are pining for homes in the new
West, get up some morning, and ask
themselves : What' the mailer f Why
don't I get ahead in the world?
Why do 1 want lo go West? Then
if they study up the matter carefully
they will find there is a " screw
loose" somewhere, and see that
they need not go West in order lo
get" it tightened. IP money is the
sole object the farmer has in view,
it can be made in the East as well
as the West; business can be con
ducted on a smaller capital here
than in the West.
But, saj's one, how did Mr. A. and
B., who, a few years since moved
West with their "families, and pur
chased Government lands, get their
money? In a few years they came
back East pretty well lo do in the
world. Well, we will answer that
question by asking anether: How
do the foreigners who come to this
country with hardly a dollar in their
pockets, purchase a farm, cover it
with a mortgage, and in a few j'cars
pay for it, and own it free and clear,
and have a snug little bank account
besides? In nine cases out of ten,
the correct answer would be. By not
doing as ve do. They come to" this
country with no other capital than
pluck, thrift, and energy ; they bring
their frugal habits with them ; they
are determined lo succeed, and they
do succeed. They have not our ex
pensive ways of living: society ways
do not trouble them. They" dress
cheaply -and pay no money for pub
lic enterprises, except what the law
exacts. Now, the farmer who moves
onto the new lands of the West
must work on tho same principle if
he would save anything ahead. But
he can do it in New England as well
as in the West, if he has only the
independence to carry it out. There
are but few, however, that care to
live in such a manner.
Most of our farmers believe in a
higher manhood than that which
would devote itself entirely to tho
accumulation and hoardingbf dollars
and cents. The true New England
farmer desires to see his children
well educated, and there is enough
of the Puritan left in him to induce
him to work for the best interest of
society, and lo this end he becomes
a public-spirited man. The church
and other public institutions receive
his hearty support and approval,
lie likes good society, even if it
sometimes costs him something to
keep it up he places the comfort
and health of his family first, and
leaves the bank account to take care
of itself. It is very seldom that
such a one becomes discontented
with his farm life but should such
a one, orany Eastern farmer, become
discontented with his lot, and think
of " going West," let him for a mo
ment consider all the blessings and
privileges, society and home sur
lonndings, that are his in the East,
and then ask himself, " What shall
I get in exchange for all these if I
go onto the new lands of the West?"

To very many an orange is an or
ange, the only variation distinguish
able being in size and corresponding
8 rice, while those who know the
ifference between "Florida," "Se
ville" and "Messina" orange3 are
considered experts. The "Florida
Catechism" tells us better than that.
Wo learn from it that there are
"over thirty" varieties of sweet
orauges, not" to mention the "natu
ral" stock, which i3 a larger and
handsomer fruit than the sweet
orange, and is excellent for orange
ade and marmalade, but being very
sour, is seldom shipped XsTorth.
Tho medium sizes are apt to be the
choicest, and "probably the very
sweetest orange that is marketed is
the rusty-coated and rather ill-looking
orange, which might be consid
ered inferior by an amateur." Fur Fur
thereore: "The way to detect
oranges is to 'heft' them in your
hands; pick out the thin-skinned,
heavy fruit and you are all right."
Tho lif'.:t-weight fruit is apt to be
juiceless, a condition caused either
by a slight freezing while on the tree,
or, more probably, by the poverty
of tne soil m which it grew.
All this applies to the sweet
oranges. The "kid glove " oranges
are grown in Florida from two stocks,
brought, respectfully, from China
and Tangiers. Hence they are
called Mandarin and Tangerine
oranges. Both are small, the skin
is loose and easily removed, and the
sections fall apart so readily that a
lady can eat 6ne without soiling her
gloves hence the name.
Some other interesting bits of in
formation may he picked out from
this "Catechism." It isnot generally
known, for instance, that "an orange
that is entirely dead ripe in Decem
ber will hang on the tree until
March, and is ready at any time tc
be picked and shipped ;" while so
far from deteriorating, "the longer
they hang on the trees the sweeter
they grow," and Florida oranges,
purchased in February and March,
are, therefore, apt to bo better than
those procured early u the season.
Again, the notion that, to know
what an orange is really like, one
must go where the oranges grow,
appears to be a popular fallacv. as
we are told that " the orange
picked from the tree is no riper or
better than the orange on the fruit
stall m the North." Philadelphia
