inferring to an item In the Orrgon
t, about the unprecedented deinnnd
for fruit trees, and the penemr feeling
among Oregon fanners that It paid let
ter to more fruit and less wheat,
n well known Portland gentlenan re
lated to a reporter a conversation he
had with Setintor Stanford on the oc
casion of his visit to Portland, in which
the question of orcharding and fruit
shipment eame up. Senator Stanford
has done much personalty in advanc
ing that industry in California and the
Southern Pacific Company lias fostered
it by favorable rates to the East, The
Oregonktn1 informant was certain
that Senator Stanford could have no
objection to publicity of the conversa
tion and as what was altl was as perti
nent to Orcjron as California, he has
no hesitancy in repeating it.
The great trouble in California, Sen
ator Stauford said, has been a lack of
co-operation among fruit growers and
the uneven quantities offered for ship
ment. It was a feast or a famine. Of
tentimes the fruit reached Chicago and
2Cew York on a glutted market and it
was next to impossible to sell it at any
price. Often there was an over-supply
of one kind of fruit and the markets
were bare of what was in demand. It
was no rare occurence for more fruit to
seek transportation than the company
could handle followed by entire ab
sence of offerings. Finally the fruit
growers formed an association and
agreed upon concerted ac tion as to fruit
shipments. They desired very much
to be able to ship fruit every day. A
conference was had between the fruit
growers' committee and the rahway
officers, which resulted in the South
ern Pacific agreeing to send a fruit
train every day on passenger time, pro-
vHed at least ten carloads were offered
This summer a train has been dispatch
ed everv day, and as the varieties of
fruit which California produces in great
abundance were nearly a failure east.
the products of the Golden state have
met with ready sale and have com
nianded an unusually high priee
throuphout the season. . Hviwe the
fruit harvest in iSaliforoia was very
rich. It was an exceptionally profita
ble year.
But this fortunate ttate of affairs
cannot be expected one year out of
t wenty. With an abundant harvest at
the east, only the choicest California
fruits are wanted, and the priee must
be reasonable, else the eastern people
will buy the inferior eastern fruit at a
lower price. Hence, Senator Stauford
advised all horticulturists to be prepar-
.wi iw,:. l.
tw ui j ujcrii null ,j .-, uiai 13
to say, the product in excess of the de
mand from local canneries.
He further advised the fruit growers
to engage a first-class man to act as
eastern agent and correspondent, with
headquarters at Chicago. It should be
his duty to learn the state of the mark
et in every western city and during the
peason keep tlie Californians advised by
tell them the actual supply at every
considerable market anl the prospec
tive supply for the coming week
end thus in a great measure, prevei t
coast shipments from being unloaded
on a glutted market. For instance
IJartlett jears might be in demand in
Kansas City and St. Louis and not in
Chicago or Pittsburg. Grapes might
find a ready sale in Clevelana but not
in Cincinnati, and so pn through all
the varieties.
As trains run every day
about on passenger schedule, the agent
would know almost to an hour of every !
arrival of fruit. Ht could do still more. !
Suppose while the fruit was in transit, j
the state of the market should change.
The agent would have time to advise
the shipper by telegram and could or
der the shipment changed from its
original destination to some other place
where it w ould be more likely to meet
a more favorable market. In this way
shipments which, if not diverted,
would prove disastrous, might be turn
ed to profit, or at least to making the
shipper whole. In case all the eastern
markets were fully supplied, the fruit
growers would know it and then could
dispose of their ripe product to local
canneries, or dry it at their option.
The cost of sustaining the Chicago
agency would be trifling as compared
with the heneficial rpsnltH.
fenaior pranrora was impeiieti to
speak freely to the Oregonian' inform
ant, because he had noticed that the
farmers of Rogue river valley were in
creasing their orchards largely, and he
had learned that young trees haI been
planted by the thousands in the Ump
qua and Willamette valleys. ' Oregon
might not for some years raise enough
fruit to load a train a day, but he be
lieves even now that one train a week
could be made up. In one respect Ore
gon was better off for markets than
California. AVe have Montana and
the cold belt along the line of the
Northern Pacific as far as St. Paul to
supply, and no coast competition for
that territory. East of the Missouri
river Oregon was on equal footing with
California. He urges co-operation
among the fruit growers of this state,
and the establishment of canneries,'
which should also put up vegetables.
He thought it might be advisable for
Oregon fruit growers to send an agent
to Chicago next year to keep them ad
vised as to the state of the niarkt.

The good old American fashion of
making New Year's calls is still preva
lent as ever in the Capital City, w hlle
it Is being abandoned gradually In most
of the other large cities of the country;
it will probably remain for Washington
to preserve this time-honored custom,
as the fact that the President of the
United States sets the example will al
ways make New Year's calling both
fashionable and popular In this city.
This year was ushered in by the usual
grand reception dignatariesand private
citizens by the head of the nation, and
many there were who regarded the af
fair as a hilarious occasion, not observ
ing the propriet les of dress and decorum
that usually characterize Presidential
receptions at this season.
The only unfinished business now be
fore the Senate isthe Blair Educational
Bill, and Senator Blair, who Is the
champion of the measure, will persist
in claiming the attention of the Senate
for his pet scheme until it is pressed to
passage. Itjs known that the bill will
be opposed both in the Senate and
House, and debates of considerable
length are antlcapated. " Senator Rea
gan will speak in the negative his op
position being based upon constitution
al objections. The constituents of
Southern members are bringing much
influence to bear in favor of the mea
sure, and other sections of the country
are using efforts in the same direction;
there seems little reason to doubt the
passage of the bill, though the pros
pect is that the President will veto it
on account of its paternal and central
izing character.
President Cleveland and Secretary
Lamar are exerting themselves, for the
passage of a bill, drawn by the latter,
to appoint a coiumision of three mili
tary officers and two civilians to treat
with the Indians for the purpose of get
ting them more compactly settled
moving the tribes to the eastern portion
of the Indian Territory with the ob
ject of opening twenty-one million
acres of lantl in the western part of the
Territory to the settlement of immi
grants. To this it Is proposed to annex
"Xo Man's Land," covering three mil
lion acres, and thus constitute a new
Territory about the size of the state of
Ohio. This is virtually a revival of the
project of forming the Territory of Ok
lahoma, which has been agitated a long
time, but there does not appear to be
much prospect of its sucks.
It? is probable that the Territories of
Dakota, Washington, and Montai a
will be admitted as States during the
present session of Congress, but that
they will not be permitted to have a
voice in the next Presidential election.
Mr. Seney, of Ohi, will re-introduce
into the House, a bankruptcy bill,
which has the merit of being the sim
plest solution of the vexed problem yet
proposed; it provides that, while a
debtor makes an assignment in trust
in favor of his creditors, turning over j
all his nronertv without reserve, hpraii !
apply to a United States Court for a re
lease which shall le granted, after it is
shown that he lias made an assignment
in good faith; after which the settle
ment is to lie made in the courts of the
State. It is hoped that some such bill
will pass, for a national bankrupt law
has long been one of the great needs of
the country.
A case of such national importance
that it has been advanced on the dock
et of the Supreme Court of the Unitt-d
States, o as to le heard on the 9th inst.,
is the noted boycott trial of a number
of the Knight of Labor In this city,
in which the lower court decided that
a boycott is a common conspiracy, and

an experiment with peas showed that
it required 35 ounds more of cooked

Farmers of Minnesota and Dakota

than ever before. The cause is not less
cash, but more hogs.

For many years I have been a firm
believer In the truth of palmistry, but ;
I recently made an experiment which
has shaken my faith In the art of hand
reading, In a measure. For the benefit
of the public I have kindly eoneented
to relate my exiwrlenee so that the
matter mav be satisfactorily explained
if such a thing be possible. There are
a few contradictious in the result my
experiment brought out, which I am
somehow unable to reconcile. I will
therefore give my readers an opportun

the lost harmony.
A few days ago, after attending
a lecture iiHn hand rending, by Prof.
A. Stork Edward, the famous British
savant, at rickering hall, I bought a
book containing a key to a! I the lines
of the hand," defining thein and de
scribing their significance for weal cr
for foe. I then made an exact chart of
the lines of my hand, showing the pre
cise location of each lump on my palm,
and all the other distinguishing char
acteristics of its surface. Then I con
sultcd the book, with the following ex
traordinary result:
I am nervous ami sensitive.
I have a phlegmatic temperament,
and my feelings can never be hurt.
I shall live to lie nlnetv-seven years
of age, six months and five days.
I shall die liefore I am forty from
cholera Infantum.
I shall marry a rich woman when I
am tweuty-one.
I shall be the mother of twins.
My husband will have red hair and
a wooden arm. He will not be rich,
but my eldest daughter will marry a
rich Italian nobleman.
1 snail never tie a parent but my
wife will be a widow with eight father
less children.
I shall never marry, bat my second
cousin James will ro out west and be
a Mormon.
I have no second cousin James, but
if I persevere in living, I may have
one before I die.
I am best fitted for the ministry or
for bank bunding, and will make a
great success at either.
I am very talkative, but as I never
say anything of Importance I need not
worry about this sj-mpton.
I shall never be president of the
United States, but the czar has it in
his mind to make me prince of Bul
garia. I had better not accept the posi
tion, though. Itecause the trident on
the mount of Jupiter warns me that
would suffer from cold feet if I ever be
came prince of Bulgaria.
I shall always be rich.
My will will beeontisted ova lawyer

plexion. I need not worry aliout that,
though, for he wilt not win the case.
I shall die in a poor house ami intes
I shall be drowned in the Arctic
Ocwin while I am traveling there to
see my daughter, who has eloped with
an Esquimaux seal hunter.
This is all.
Do you blame me, eent!e reader, for
being suspicious?
Can you reconcile these contradic

"How doubtful?" asked Hollo. " "So
doubtful that he hung his shoes on the
hat rack and piled his coat and vest
neatly under the bed, and went to
sleep in the bathtub with his trousers
on," replied his Uncle George's sister.
"H'm," said Rollo, greatly perplexed,
"and were you also in a doubtful state,
Aunt Matilda?" asked Rollo, respect
fully, for Rollo's Uncle George's sister
was Rollo's aunt, and all the family
regarded her ?s such. "Not a lilt of

air of a woman who had a dead sure
thing of it and knew it, "Not a bit
doubtful was I." And indeed she look
