For one thing the interruption of
the lumber business in the North
west will have a tendency to check
the cut of timber, which has been
going on wastefully, and to carry
over much timber to a time when it
will be much more valuable. Waste
of resources is one of our besetting
American sius. We have extermi
nated the seals; have almost de
stroyed the salmon, and have
wasted immense quantities of the
timber already cut or culled over,
and allowed other and greater bod
ies of timber to be destroyed ut
terly through carelessness in losing
control of fire. Not until recently
had we begun to realize how val
uable our great stand of timber is.
Most owners want to "realize" too
quickly for their own good; or if
not for their own good, certainly
for that of the country. Now, if
we can't sell, at least we may pause
and reflect, add then, after a while,
when we can resume, belike we
may be prepared for the exercise of
more care and conservatism; so that
in cutting the timber we may be as
saving as possible of it, and careful
in the use of means for protection
of the younger growths. It will be
said, of course, that this will not be
practicable, that it will not pay;
that the logger must make all tke
money he can; that he can't stop
to protect the younger growths,
when cutting and felling trees, or
to keep fire from running over the
ground. He can't, of course, or
will not, if he has no thought of
the future, and is merely working
one of the many varieties of get-rich-quick
schemes, with which the
energy of the time teems and
abounds. Yet it takes so long for
timber to grow that it should cost
everyone a pang to see young trees
It is one thing to clear the land
for necessary crops. It always has
been necessary to nacri6ca timber,
in pnrtictilar localities to this end.
So it is still. Hut it is another
thing to destroy wholly the timber
on land that never can bear crops.
Such are the lands in most of our
mountains and in many of our hil
ly districts. To protect the timber
from the waste thnt is destruction
is one of the objects of the system
ot forest reserves recently put into
There wns an empire of white
pine timber about the Great Lakes
and Upper Mississippi. The tim
ber is gone, and most of the land
on which it stood is practically use
less for crops or cultivation. Mil
lions of acres of these lands are now
on delinquent tax lists. Proper
care in cutting the timber would
have preserved from destruction
the smaller trees, which, in the
hurry and slash of the lumbermen's
movement were merely destroyed
to get at the best. Reforestation,
under proper care, would go on
steadily, through processes of Na
ture, as the larger trees are remov
ed, if care were taken; but it is
perhaps too much to expect there
ever will be the needful care. I'tu
vate owners seldom will ttuJy any
thing but present gain.
Hut uow, if oar people cannot
get their lumber hauled wy, per
force they will iave their timber.
It will require some philosophy to
obtain contentment out of such en
forced economy, which our people
will pray may end ns soon as possi
ble. Yet it is not out of order to
observe the fact that we are saving
our timber when the railroads re
fuse to haul it. If we can't mar
ket our timber we can have it; and
every year after this it will be
worth more money than it is this
A Few Words to the Fruit Growers of
The fruit crop of I907 has been
gathered and with the exception of
part of the apples, has been market
ed at good prices. Let us now turn
our attention to preparing for a
larger crop and better quality of
fruit for I908.
Insect pests and fungous diseases
have invaded our orchards and we
must keep up a relentless war if we
would eradicate them.
The time is again at hand for
pruning and spraying.
There is scarcely an orchard that
is not more or less infected with an
thracnose or dead spot, and now is
the time to spray to do the most ef
fective work in destroying it.
Use the Bordeaux mixture, if
there is no scale. Where there is
scale too, use the lime and sulphur
as that will be effective in both
When trees are badly infested
with the scale, they should be
sprayed twice during the dormant
For the benefit of those who do
not understand how to use the
prepared lime and sulphur spray,
I will give the following for trees
during the dormant season: To
each gallon of lime sulphur solu
tion add 9 gallons of water and to
every 50 gallons of this solution
add 5 or 6 pounds of good un-
slacked lime. Slack the lime and
strain before putting into the solu
tion. This will give tbe apray more
color, and the operator can more
easily detect any part that may
have been missed.
Let me emphasize the necessity
of thorough work. It has been my
observation and my own experience
that poor work is but little better
than no work.
I am much pleased w'fh the work
that has been done during the
short time of my duties as inspector.
Many orchards have been cleaned
up, pruned, sprayed and cultivated,
and there is a marked improvement
in condition of the orchards and
quality ot fruit. There is yet room
for much improvement and I would
ask your co-operation in this work
that we may accomplish what the
VALUE OF LANE COUNTY FWIT FOR
1 hereby present a conservative
estimate of the value of tbe fruit
raised in this country for the past
year. This does not include cider
apples and much other fruit raised:
Strawberries, 4,000 crates $ 4,000
Raspberries, 45 toriH "S,5K
Loganberries, 3,000 crates 2,."00
Cherries, 2.10 tons 25,000
Pears' 110 tons 2,000
Prunes, dried, 1,300,000 pounds 00,000
Apple! 10,000 boxes 1(3,000
This speaks well for the fruit in
dustry, but it is scarcely a drop in
the bucket to what could be raised.

Cottage Grove people read it, emilo
and keep smiling:
God reigns, the Union still lives
and the sun still shines, even
though the clouds obscure it.
There are more people dying lor
the lack of a kind word, a pat ou
the back and a little encouragement
than there are from disease.
A smile is potential, magnetic
and dispels trouble.
The man who never makes any

Hard luck stories are like overdue
"Go bury thy eorrows, the world

Before monej was invented some
people were happy.
Shake hands as though you

Nobody can compute the value of
a smile; a frown has cost a king
Nobody can roally harm you but
You are a real obligation to every
man on earth.

When in doubt take optimism.
In darkness, in light, in sorrow,
in blight, be an optimist ever, and
things will come right.
Optimism is the first-boru of
hope, the mother of confidence, the
executioner of adversity and the
undertaker of pessimism.
A frown is a renegade smile that
is afraid to look himself in tho face.
On the faces of the happy aged
it is a well known fact that wrinkles
are only the footprints of smiles.
On the vehicle of modern pro
gress the creak of the wheel is the
pessimistic protest; a little optimis
tic lubricant will silence both the
creak and the croak.
"The optimist wins." Depew.

"They that are whole need not a
physician, but they tint are sick."
A smile is God's own medicine.
A grin is a counterfeited smile,
and does not pass current because
the heart stamp is not on it.
Optimism and pessimism have
fought many bloody battles; if op
timism had not been a victor to
date, hope would have died years
In the realm ot the birds the lark
is tbe optimist, the crow is the pes-'
simist. Why be a crow?
The optimism of the optimist
destroys the last hope of the pessi
mist. CASE AFTER CASE
