OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST
OREGON FIR FOR PULLMANS.
ROCK CREEK'S FINE FRUIT.
Millions of Feet Used Every Year for
Portland In 18 months Portland
has furnisheJ between 40,000,000 and
60,000,000 feet of flr lumber for use in
the construction of cars at the shops of '
the Pullman Car company, located at
Pullman, 111. In the purchase of this
material, the company has expended
close to $1,600,000.
These figures are vouched for by Al
bert Jones, purchasing agent of the
Pullman company, who was sent to
the West 13 months ago to buy lumber.
The first is usd exclusively for siding
on boxcars, and, besides the lumber
bought here, more is continually being
contracted for in other sections. Some
of the material is dressed, such as Moor
ing, siding and the like, while more
has been shipped rough.
There is no prospective cessation of
the buying so far as the pine is con
cerned, and, while yellow pine is also
largely used, that is not being drawn
from this locality. In the construction
of sleeping and passenger cars only
hard woods are utilized, particularly
for finishing the interior. Some ma
terial is often left in dry kilns four or
five months, subject to slow heat and
the air drying process, in order that
when fitted in cars it is perfectly sea

Prices of Cattle Advancing.
La Grande Peter O'Sullivan, who
has just returned from a visit to Wal
