PRUNE MEN TO GET
Salem At a regular meeting of the
ftoard of directors of the Oregon
Crowers' Cooperative association
authority was given the committee
a dried fruit and the dried fruit sales
department to make arrangements
for at least a 50 percent advance on
the 1922 opening prices of prunes to
tie given to growers upon delivery to
the packing house or upon being
jpraded. This insures the growers of
a good substantial payment at the
beginning of the season.
Canning is being done by the Ore-j
iron Growers' Cooperative association
this week at the Salem dried fruit
packing plant, which has been re
modeled to accommodate machinery
for a two line cannery. The capacity,
'it is stated, will be about 25 tons of
fresh fruit per day, and the season's
utput will be between 70 nd 80
C J. Pugh in charge of canning op
erations is endeavoring to make the
association's pack stand for quality.
It is expected that as the canned fruit
put up by the association becomes
letter known in eastern markets that
the present will be greatly increased.
It is reported in a recent communi
eation from a Philadelnhia
spray should be put on apples during
this week as moths are flying about
now and will soon be depositing eggs
This spray should be combined with
the regular scab spray and lead arse
nnte should be added at the rate of
two pounds per 100 gallons of water.
If the presence of the cherry fruit
maggot is noticed, it is advisable to
spray with poisoned bait composed of
sodium arsenate, one half pound,
molasses two quarts to eight gallons
of water. One pint to a tree is sufficient.

Henry Jason, the noted henpecked
husband, Is another example of what
the loss of personal liberty can do to a
man. When the fathers of our constitu
tion passed the law relating to matri
mony they forever put the shackles on
Henry Juson. Henry's sero hour came
when Portia Strong led him to the altar
and the Justice of the peace tied the
fntal knot. He has tasted no nectars
of liberty since, Bert Walker writes
In the Topeku Capital. But Henry
has not the strong and forceful charac
ter of Old Bill Shiftless, so he sub
mits without a whimper. He tried
whimpering once and It put him In a
hospital for two weeks. One day when
Portia was away attending a meeting
of the Advanced Thought club, which
was very busy emancipating woman,
a long-haired leader left a pamphlet
at the Jason kitchen door. Henry
stopped long enough to read the front
page. The first line read: "It Is
high time to administer a rebuke and
to check the forces which are try
ing to overthrow our constitutional
Immunities and liberties." Just then
Henry heard a step on the front porch.
He thought It was Portia. He was
at once stricken with palsy and fell
In a dead faint. It was two hours
before he came to and was able to
burn the pamphlet. He was still
shaking like an aspen leaf when Portia
returned at midnight Had Henry
Jason not been deprived of his personal
liberty when a young man his name
would have gone down on the pages
of history alongside those of John L.
Sullivan and Jack iH'mpsey.
YAKIMA CROP YIELD
TO SET NEW RECORD
The Enterprise is indebted to M. P.
Buldwln for a copy of the Yakima
Morning Herald, published at Yakima,
Wash., where Mr. Baldwin is the
proprietor of the Tieton hoteL A for
mer Independence business man, Mr.
Baldwin has been located ire the great
Washington fruit country for the
past several months. In the Herald is
published a story which gives sume
idea of the horticultural andi agricul
tural resources of the valley. It says.
The railroads must be prepared to
handle about 4500 more carloads of
Yakima valley products during the
coming shipping season , than they
have handled in the past 12 months,
according to estimates made by H.
A. Glen, general agent for the North
ern Pacific, and incorporated by hint
in his monthly letter to the company!
Mr. Glen shows by itemized state
ment that in the past 12 months there
has been shipped out of the Yakima
valley a total of 41,167 carloads of
valley products, and places his estl-
t miner crop of the valley, at fr a

Records show thut the total caribts

In 1920 this had Jumped to 40,(K)0 ami
tho 1921 crop, now practically mar
keted, will reach about 42,500 by the
end of the present month, which ends
the fiscal year for the railroads. This
tonnage includes all valley products
and not simply agricultural product.
The 1921 crop set new records for
production in fruit, grain and pota
toes. The rmit crop in roumi num
bers will be 17,500 cars. This is more
than 2000 cars greater thn the fruit
crop of 1919, which held the record
with 16,300 cars. Estimates differ
as to the probable tonnago of the com
ing crop, but the railroad are not
figuring on any ."maternal increase

Motorists Got to Their Destination, but i
"Papa" Had Had a Lot to '
Do With It. i
A party of tourists was attempting
to reach Pendleton on the I'eudletou
pike between Indianapolis and Pen- j
dleton when one of those things that
happen to motorists so frequently on j
country roads happened. It was the i
day after a heavy rain and the ground
was thawing rapidly when this party ,
descended hub-deep In good, old
Hoosler mud. Through some trick of
luck, assisted by elbow grease, the
automobile was rescued from the mud
hole and the party about-faced to In
quire at the nearest farmhouse of an
other route to Pendleton.
A small country boy came to the
door and seemed very reluctant to
give Information as to the condition
of other roads leading to Pendleton.
"Have any other machines been go
ing through on this road?" the boy
"Sure, they all have been gotn'
through. Papa's been takln' 'em
through for $4 apiece. You guys la
Is the first customers we have lost," re
plied the boy with a deep frown.
A look azound disclosed that papa
too was dlsieartened at tht good luck
of the motorists In getting out on their
own power, because he had his team
hitched np ready to Increase his mud
hole Income for the week.

Ceng Croee-Country Hike.
Father 1'ime la the only spectator
at this celestial sporting event, but he
must Hud It a thrilling one. In a 40,-000-year
voyage from the stars to the
earth, pulses of blue and yellow light
run a neck-and-neck race, according
to a bulletiu Issued by the Harvard
College observatory. Traveling 180,
000 utiles a second, the two kind of
light do not differ In velocity as much
as an Inch a second, the bulletin says.
In the entire journey neither gains as
much as two minutes.
This conclusion has been reached
by study of faint variable stars In re
mote clusters, one of the brightest
and nearest of which Is designated
Messier 5. The distant from the
earth of tnis ball-shaped swarm of
thousands of giant stars, just calcu
lated by Harvard astronomers, Is
announced as 12.2 klloparsecs or near
ly 40,000 light years a cross-country
hike of more then two hundred thou
sand trillion miles.
Earl Has to Feed Stock.
The earl of Fingall and his family
are engaged In caring for their stock
themselves, owing to labor troubles.
At Killeen castle, which dates from
the year 1100, efforts to organize a
union made the employees quit work
ing, wherefore the Countess Fingall
goes out to cut the turnips, while the
earl and his son, Lord Killeen, feed
the stock, which, being of the choicest
breeds, requires the most regular kind
of attention. The pigs get one feed
