LARGE ATTENDANCE DESIRED
All Interested in Fruit Culture Asked
to Meet in Hillsboro en Satur
day, December 29th.
The answer is simply give your
fruit trees the same care and atten
tion that you would your horse,
your cow or anything else, to ob
tain the best results. A fine high
bred animal is a living evidence of
care and effort. The beautiful dis
play of apples in Portland this
fall, from the orchards of Hood
River and the Rogue river country
were simply the results of iutelli
gent effort and work. We of this
valley are reminded by another ex
hibit of apples grown in the Wil
lamette valley, also exhibited at
rortland, that we can do lully as
well if we will only give our trees
the same care and attention. Hence,
the necessity of getting an organi
zation in Hillsboro, as has been
done in Forest Grove, Reedville,
and other points in our county, to
meet once each month, where fruit
culture will be discussed in its vari
ous phases. For this purpose a
general invitation is hereby extend
ed to all who are interested in fruit
culture to meet at Hillsboro, Satur
day, December 39th., when Mr,
Harris, the fruit inspector tor this
county, will give a practical demon
stration of pruning, sprayiug and
methods of cultivation and care of
fruit trees. Also what varieties are
best adapted for the valley. Trust
ing that there will be a good at
tendance, which will insure a strong
organization, without wuicu we
will drilt along as before and
the result will be that a great many
of our orchards will be condemned
by the fruit inspector, and conse
quently will have to be cut down.
Let us consider this as a duty we
owe to the splendid reputation of
our county to show the world that
we can excel in fruit as well as in
many 'other products of our rich
soil. By order of the Committee.
Mary F. Haydon, the Chicago
novelist, has purchased a tract of
5000 acres in Refugie county, Tex.,
which she is preparing to colonize
with women. There will be hus
bands if this is found to be necessary
but all property will be in the wo
man's name. The legislature will
be asked to grant suffrage to the wo
men in their colony affairs. The
women will engage in every kind of
industry that is usually undertaken
in Texas, truck gardening, bee
keeping, poultry, fruit raising, etc.
McMinnville, the home of referen
dum petition and other crank move
ments, has originated a scheme to
send 100 pretty girls from Oregon
on a tour of the eastern states as an
advertisement of the Beaver State,
and invites each county to contri
bute one or more candidates and its
share of expense to carry out the
plan. At the risk of being roted a
a grouchy old bachelor, we can't for
the life of us see how a band of young
women clothed in blue uniform with
white braid on it, a little din'tey cap
set on the side of their heals, and
carrying a broom or a woodsn gun,
would in any way advertiic Ore
gon's hops, prunes, timber, mines,
grain, wool, mohair, livetoac, sal
mon, and other wonderful commer
cial resources. As ajunketpg tour
for a lot of pretty girls and lie few
fortunate members of the niiie tribe
who would be selected to accom
pany the expedition at si lebody
else's expense, the plan mitf t prove
highly successful, but as a 1 isiness
proposition we can see nothi ig in it.
It is to be hoped that prospd us old
Polk will save its money fo ngora

How much Hnd how little can be
said in a few words. To those who

Spirit Are Not "Whiskey."
New York, Dec. 24. James Wil
son, secretary of Agriculture, and
Dr. II. Wiley, chief of the bureau
of chemistry, today ruled thatBour
don whiskey, colored and flavored
and labeled "blended whiskey," can
not be in future described as "whis
ky," as it is simply a spurious imi
tation of the genuine article. The
ruling was made for food inspection
guidance, aud as a very large num
ber of dealers will be affected by it
an appeal has been lodged.

Industrial Blood Suckers!
The following is clipped from the
Emporia (Kan.) Gazette;
"The man who buys bis goods of
a mail order house and expects his
neighbors in Emporia to buy goods
of him, or buy labor of him, or to
buy professional service of him is
economically a leech. He is suck
ing industrial blood out of the town
and gives none back. He sends his
profits out of town like a Chinaman,
and has no more right to a standing
in the community than a foreigner.
We are all neighbors industrially in
this town, and the man who sends
away for his goods is not one of us.
He is of another industrial system,
and deserves no man's support iu
"The fact that this is economical
ly wrong is recognized by the mail
order houses themselves. They
protect their customers as theives
by offering to keep people from
knowing where the goods were pur
chased by having no "tags" on
them. They say in their catalogue
that no one knows where they were
bought. It it is proper to hide the
place of purchase of an article it is
wrong to buy the article at that
place. Only a man who steals is a
man who is ashamed to say where
he got anything he has. There is
such a thing as "tainted" drygoods,
'tainted" groceries and "tainted"
furniture. All of such articles that
are not purchased at home, of men
who befriended you, of men to whom
you owe your living, are "tainted"
because they come unfairly.
If you want the support of your
fellow townsmen, and want to accept
it without a blush, buy at home
This Calls for War.
An American citizen owes to so
ciety cleanliness in personal habits,
dress, and occupation. And a white
man is expected to regard his neigh
bor as having feelings similar to his
own and possessing faculties of smell
taste and sight. Our boys and girls
are taught physiology very early in
life to impress on their young minds
right sanitary principles. This is
right it is necessary, that they may
become good lawabidiug citizens.
But what about a dirty, black, grea
sy Chinaman perched in the midst
of an industrious, thriving, would-be-clean,
community, with hog-pen
slop-barrel aud filth that can be re
cognized in the air for more than a
mile away? This is what the resi
dents of North Albany and all that
pass through this section of the conn
try have to endure. The China
man's hogpen is within a huudred
yards of the school house and less
than that distance from two or three
dwellings, and its odors have be
come very rancid, indeed. Can
anything be done to relieve such a
state of affairs as this? Or.do white
people, America citizens at that,
have to remain silent and hold their
noses while they eat their meals?

A SAD CHRISTMAS
FOR MRS. DIXON
FIVE CHILDREN FATHERLESS.
Raymond Diaen Drowns in the Tu

Body is Recovered.
The Portland Journal of Tuesday
evening has the followihg account
of the drowning of Raymond Dixou
whose home was near Cornelius:
"To Mrs. Raymond Dixon and
J her five small children this Christ

Raymond Dixon was a young aud
well-known farmer residing near
Cornelius, Washington county, Ore
gon. Jiugu Uraay, 01 I'ortlana, as
sisted by Dixon's neighbors, is
grappling the stream for the body.
Duck hunting was a sport Dixon
was wont to indulge in at leisure
times and a week ago, to enable him
the better to get about the marshes
along the Tualatin the young farm
er built himself a boat. Dixou
proved an amateur at boat building
and when his craft was done he
(found it hardly seaworthy. Never-
theless. he ventured out iu it once
without mishap. Thinking to se
cure ducks lor a Christmas dinner,
Dixon went out again early yester
day morning with his gun and
boat. His family has not seen him
At 8 o'clock yesterday morning
another hunter, Lee Reed, saw Dix
ou in his boat in midstream. Sud
denly the frail craft struck a sub
merged log and tipped over. Dix
ou was spilled into the water. At
first he clung to the boat, but the
water was cold and, knowing him
self to ;,e a goodswimmer, the hun
ter tried to swim ashore.
Though impeded by his heavy
rubber boots and chilled by the ice
cold water Dixon swam for 75 yards
and Reed, waiting on the bank,
thought him safe, when suddenly
the swimmer threw up his hands
and sank trom sight.
Alter waiting in vain for the hun
ter to come lo the surface, Reed re
ported the drowning aud a brother
of the dead man came to Port
laud to secure Hugh Brady to re
cover the body. Brady left early
this morning for Cornelius. He
did not expect to find the remains

believed that the currents swept
