state will be entitled to about! $2,700

be benefitted first by new Irrigation
works has not yet been announced.
FOR BETTER ROADS.
Better roads for this state Is the
object of the Oregon Good Roads As
soc. aiion, formed during the past
week with a strong membership. The
association will work for good roads
legislation, uniform plans of Improve
ment throughout the state and the
collection of money for road building.
It Is planned to collect a fund of
$15,000 during the next two years
and engage a competent road engin
eer who shall direct all road work
In the state. Much good Is expected
to result from the formation of the
Only one grower from Polk county
entered apples In competition at the
Albany fair last week. Peter Kurre
was there with five boxes of choice
apples of the Grimes' Golden, Bald
win, King, Spitzenburg and Russian
Baldwin varieties. He brought home
honi-rs for the county. Scarcity of!
apples in Polk county Is the reason i
there were no other competitors, j
With soil and climate to excell any ;
other locality there is no excuse for I
this bhortage. Let's have more apple J
orchards in the county. The premi-;
uin box at .hat fair sold at $22. Good,
apples are in demand. In the final
report of the apple crop of the United
States, the American Agriculturist,
un i, r date of October 30, places the
total for 1909 at 22,735,000 barrels.
This compares with 25,450,000 barrels
in 1908. This is the third year of in
different apple crops and the totals
named fall far short of such sea
sons as 1906; 1904 and that ever mem
orable bumper crop of 1896, which
is still discussed and recognized as a
high-water mark in the conventions
of fruitgrowers and dealers.
There is strong talk of a state and
county convention system of nomin
ating candidates this year for the Re
publican party. There are several
reasons for this. One Is that to get
the best timber it is not the longest
money bag that counts and if a con
vention is , called the man can be
selected from the mass. The prima
ry system is expensive and a man
in moderate circumstances can not
afford to run for the best offices. In
the county the expense question en
ters in to the matter and then the
matter of Just distribution of office
over the county enters in a large
scale. We favor something that will
do away with the double campaign
and yet will give us clean politics
and efficient officers. Oregon Ori
ano. There can be no mistake made in
planting walnuts in the Willamette
valley. Not when they are being
shipped from California by the car
load to be marketed in this state.
Walnuts yield $1500 an acre in Cal
ifornia and Oregon produces a nut
superior to those grown in that
state, in size, in softness of shell and
In color. Market for walnuts is not
affected by an over production. The
demand is so general that it will not
be affected for a quarter of a centu
ry and perhaps never. The demand
will Increase for the appetite teases
for Oregon walnuts once you get a
taste of them.
The greatest ball season in the his
tory of coast league playing closed
the first of this week at Portland.
McCreedie has developed into a good
manager. We must -have the pen
nant next season, Mc, for Portland
Only one paper of Polk county re
fused to publish anything to boost
for the apple fair at Albany, but
that paper did muster up enterprise
enough to reprint a slur from the Al
bany Di'iumrai on a paper which vol
unteered more missionary work In
that direction than all the rest 'f
tho Polk county papers combined.
Just think of It: a Jersey in f
only i,vntien days old selling f.r
$70. Twli i as much as the common
grade cow would bring with a calf
at her hide, and the calf you couldn't
five away. To think that -Jerseys
can be raised on the an me feed ami

Keception of the fanners' demon
stration train In eastern Oregon was
much different from that accorded It
In the Willamette valley. Here a
few men and boys congregated at the
depo , more through curiosity than
through any thought of profit. In
lastern Oregon the trains were met
by large delegations headed with
brass bands. Yet, strange to miy, In
the Willamette valley they farm whili
In eastern Oregon they grow wheat
and raise bench grass hoists and cat

Will Restock With Salmon.
The Columbia river will be re
stocked with soikeye salmon as a re
sult of a visit during the past we- k
of United States Fish Commissioner
George H. Bowers of Washington, I).
C. He has ordered the shlpiu'-nt of
2.000,000 sockeye eggs from the Yes
Bay. Alaska, hatchery to be delivered
to the Bonneville hatchery, and the
young fry will be turned Into the Col
umbia. During the past few years
the sockeye has h?en growing scarce
In the Columbia but it Is believed
that this fine variety of commercial
fish will be propagated in sufficient
quantities to meet the ravage of the
fishermen by restocking the river.

about the Edison Phonograph as an entertainer Is that It gives you your
kind of amusement your kind of music. That's because It gives any
kind. The man who likes old-fashioned ballads Is apt to think because
be has never heard the Edison sing a ballad that It is a ragtime Instru
ment. " N' 1 ''
You -must hear the Edison Phonograph sing or play the kind of music
you like. Then you will know. It Is very easy to hear the Edison at
the Phonograph Parlors of the Saleiu Music Company's Store.
