A PROFITABLE CROP TO CROW
A Paper of Interest fey Brooke
Sons. Easily Grown and Re
turns Largo. '
Oregon has proven herself to be
the ideal and natural home of the
ICuglish walnut. Numerous trees
from young ones to those of forty
years old have been located, scat
tered over a vast area of territory
from Roseburg to the Columbia
river and that lying between the
Cascades and east range, also parts
of Eastern Oregon. Walnut culture
can practically be carried on sue
cessfully in the whole Willamette
valley by planting on rolling land,
hillsides, bottom land, alongside
roadways, around vineyards and
large fields, in avenues and soils,
not well adapted to other crops,
but be careful and avoid shallow
soil as the walnut is a deep rooter
and requires good depth of soil
When we say soil, we mean top
sou, sudsou, dirt, ground, all is
soil which is not rock or mineral.
Some are confused as to oil, think
ing we mean only top soil. All
that is necessary is to have good
depth of dirt. The roots will find
their way down if it is not rock.
Soil that contains gravel is all
right and does not hurt it in the
least, providing the gravel is not
too large and too numerous to stop
the roots from going down. We
have seen walnut trees that have
been bearing for years, located on
low bottom land, not even tiled or
drained, and have never as yet seen
a tree materially injured by these
wet conditions, but seem to thrive
and produce fruit abundantly. It
is found by ascertaining and locat
ing soil conditions' where walnuts
are now found to be growing and
bearing that this most valuable tree
is less susceptable to iniury by
moisture than any other tree known.
You can find walnuts planted on
the flat land around McMinnville,
Salem, Eugene, Portland and nu
merous other places, and seemingly
there is no other kinds of soil they
could do better on, however bottom
and gives some larger yield than
hill land. We kuow of trees only
eleven years old yielding over three
bushels of nuts (about too pounds)
and these trees did not have the
proper care. A bearing orchard is
worth about $300 per acre or more.
Standard varieties must be planted;
it is policy to mix the varieties as
they act as fertilizers to one anoth
er. Oregon grown walnuts are ol
fine commercial value, being prac
tically free from rancid, decayed
meats. This country pays out
about $10,000,000 00 for nuts grown
in foreign countries.
Walnut timber is worth $300 per
thousand. Some thirty years ago
a Mr. Wright planted forty acres in
Southern Caltfornia, when the trees
began crowding each other, he had
every other one taken out and sold
the lumber for $72,000, a
deal more than the lands first co3t
with compound interest on all over
twelve years. The orchard now
yields a large income. Walnuts
can be planted among hops about
thirty feet apart, letting them run
up to eight feet before pruning the
tops. The great secret is planting
them the right way. Walnut trees
can be set any time in the fall until
the first of April. Walnut trees
have few cuemies owing to the
nature and strong vitality ol the
trees. Walnuts should bear in
five or six years when properly at
tended to. There is no better in
vestment for future outlook than
planting English walunt trees.
There is much less expense attached
to the culture of the walnut than
any other class of trees known.
Walnut trees are long lived. Low
growing crops can be planted in
walnut orchards the first few years
which adds to the cultivation of
the trees. Extracts How to Grow

Winter Spray for San Jose Scale.
This formula proved the most
efficient last spring in destroying
the San Jose scale: Twenty pounds
of unslacked lime, 20 pounds of
flour of sulphur, with 50 gallons of
water. The most approved way of
mixing the spray is to put the lime
into a wooden or cast iron vessel
then make the sulphur into a paste
put it on top of lime and ad
enough boiling water to slack the
lime; then boil until the mixture
takes on an amber hue. If salt is
used, dissolve in hot water and ad
to the mixture. The only ad van
tage in the salt is that it helps
kill the moss on the trees. This
spray should be served not and
well strained through a course cloth
before putting it into the spray bar
rel or tank.

It is one of the hardest tasks of man
kind to select gifts for the loved ones at

The best kind of starch to use for
stiffening laces, handkerchiefs,
washing silks or any other thin fab
ric is made with gum arabic, says
the Pictorial Review. To make it
put an ounce of gum arabic into a
bottle and pour over it a cup of cold
water. Stand the bottle in a sauce
pan of cold water and place it over
the fire until it is dissolved. Then
strain it through a fine sieve or a
piece of cheesecloth into another
When it is thoroughly cold add
to it a gill of alcohol and it will be
ready for use when needed. For
dainty laces, half a tea spoonful of
the starch mixed, with a small cup
ful of cold water will give ample
stiffness. Larger amounts should
be added, according to the nature of
the different fabrics.

ADVISES HOT TO
GIVE A BONUS
WILL BUILD THE LINE ANYWAY
C. E. Loss & the People of Wssh.
Ington County Some Good Ad
vice, Which la Not Needed.
The following is taken from the
Portland Oregouian. The advice is
good, but altogether unnecessary,
for the people of Washington coun
ty have been fed on hot air from
electric line promoters until the
limit has been reached. There is
no doubt about the road being
built "some time," but the party
building will have to drop the hot
air trolly and get down to business
before he could get so much as a
pleasant smile in this vicinity. The
"Give no bonus to a railway," Is the
advice of C. K. Loss, owner of the United
Railways, to the people of Washington
county, who hare been called upon to
give a bonus to the projected line of the
Oregon Electric Company to Forest
Grove, a distance of 22 miles from Bertha
in Multnomah county.
"It's not business for a railway to ask
for a bonus these days," declared Mr.
Loss yesterday, "and it's not business
for the people to give it."
"The United Railways is going to build
to Forest drove without a bonus. I
wouldn't ask for s subsidy, never did and
Mr. Loss said that the Oregon Electric
Company is now going into Washington
county with a line to shut out the Uni
ted Railways. "But they won't shut us
out," he ssnerted. "We'll fight 'em and
parallel their tracks, even if they do get
a $200,000 bonus, which would be a $10,
000 gilt for every mile of track. Whew I
They must want tb people of Washing
ton county to build their road."
Mr. Loss promises to have soon the
capital required for his road. lie says
he will demonstrate to the people of
Portland through documentary evidence
ot stock subscripting and through the
reputation of his stick subscribers that
tbe road is to be fy.lt-The short six
months remaining hr completion of the
city lines docs not worry him, for lie
says that long before that time the proofs
of his enterprise wi3 lie before the peo
ple of Portland, and it he shall need two
or three months' eitenaion ot time he
feels confident he cm get it.
"Because," says ht, "Portland wants
not so much the forfeiture of the 100,-
000 bond as the building of the lines,"
Mr. Loss does not take seriously the
debt claims presented against his com
pany by creditors and stockholders of the
Oregon Traction Company, whose pro-
octed Hillsboro line has been merged
with the United Kail ays.
But L, Y. Keady who is suing for sat
isfaction of the stockholders' claims,
thinks they are quits serious, and that
Loss will find them so before he gets
done "trying to keep our creditors and
stockholders out of their rightful mon
ey." Said Keady last night:
"We have the best of wishes for Loss'
success, not alone for his own benefit,
but, what is more important to us, for
payment of our claims. We are not try
ing to embarrass Mr. Loss, but to get
cash due us. Maybe Mr. Loss thinks
that when his company agreed to pay
the stockholders of the Oregon Traction
Company between 40,000 and 150,000
nd the creditors f:iti,000, they have no
ick coming when the? don't get their
money. Mr. Uss wouiu nice to keep
on paying us with promises, as he bas
done for six months past, and his prede
cessors for six months before that. It's
getting close to Christmas now, and we
need the money.
"Besides these claims, Mr. McCusker
nd I have a legitimate claim for person -1
services covering several months of
:iard work, night and day, for which we
have not received a dollar, yet which
helped Mr. Loss secure the property be
considers so valuable. I think well of
Mr. Loss and know he is not entirely
responsible for the present condition of
affairs of the United KaiUavs, but as he

to him to make good the agreements of

Wheat Rots on the Platforms.
A Spokane, Wash , sicial, dated
December 17th, says: That a mil
lion bushels of wheat is leiog per
mitted to rot on platforms at North
ern Pacific stations in Central
Washington because the railway
officials refuse to permit the graiu
to be loaded into empy cars which
stand idle on the slidiugs was
charged today by a committee re
presenting the Central Washington
grain dealers in a conference at the
office of Superintendent Beamer, of
the Northern Pacific.
N. E. Hayes. Ned W. Munger,
Simon McLean. J. S. Inkster and
Richard Stevens constituted the
committee. They contend that the
claim of car shortage has been a
mere pretex, manufactured by the
railways to meet the complaints of
those suffering the rigors of coal
famine, of lumbermen, grain deal
ers and Hour manutacturers. i
E. Hayes was authority for the.
statement at the meeting that 365
empty cars are now standing ou
sidings between Pasco and Sprague,
and that the railroads excuse for
not filling them with graiu is that
it has not the motive power to haul
Members of the committee begged
that they be permitted to transfer
their grain sacks from the platforms
to those cars for mere storage pur
poses, as 20 per cent would thus be
saved. They charge that the rail
roads are in reality discriminating
in favor of flour shipments, which
pay better, and think it a signifi
cant fact that the flour manufactur
ers, who were invited to join them
in the conference, failed to appear.
Local officials asserted that the
heavy demand tor cars to move the
crop in the Dakotas was responsible
for the local tie-up, but the grain
dealers replied that the shipments
nto Minneapolis from the Dakotas
are lighter this year than last.

A pretty school-teacher in Ham
mond, Ind., has lost her position
because the superintendent does not
believe that a school-teacher should
attend dances and other entertain
ments of the sort. It has always
been a sort of unwritten law among
school-teachers that such entertain
ments should only be attended on
Friday or Saturday nights, and if
the young woman in question con
formed to the law she is excusable,
otherwise she should seek some
other occupation, it there is such,
where she can work hard all day
and dissipate at night.
