SATURDAY, AUGUST 4, 1804.
The welcome sound of the locomo
tive whistle la heard again at Hood
Rlrer after a silence of 67 days.
Trains are now running on time and
carrying the mails, and business is re
sumed along the lines of the O. It. & N.

f the past, and may we never see Its
like "again. "
The president has appointed John D.
Kernan of New York and Nicholas E.
Wortbington of Peoria, 111., to act with
Labor Commissioner Wright in the
rnmission to investigate the Chicago
strike. Mr. Kernan is a son of ex-U.S.
Senator Kernan. He has been a par
ticular and thorough student of labor
questions and has written several im
portant contributions to the literature
, on this subject. Mr. Worthington is
now a judge of the Illinois circuit court.
The tide of travel of Portland people
nd others pouring through this place
nowadays on the way to the moun
tains at the head of the valley is noth
ing to what it will be when all these
people return to their homes and tell
of the attractions, of Hood ltiver as a
summer resort. Ourscenery, the fishing,
the easy ascent of Mt. Hood from the
sool retreats near by, the wonders of a
day on the mountain, all invite the
tourist, and some day our viiitors will
- number more than we can provide for
in the way of food.
' In a trip through the valley it is very
noticable that where orchard trees are
properly cared for by cultivation or ir
rigation they are in thrifty condition,
while those that are neglected show
their lack of care at once. The advice
of the Glacier has been, and still is,
Plant apple trees; twenty acres if you
can, one tree If that is your limit, but
plant at every, opportunity j and' we
might add, never plant a tree unless
you know you cn take care of it.
There is big money In apples in Hood
River valley for those who have plant
ed orchards and are caring for them as
they should be cared for; but to plant
an orchard and neglect it, the result
would be about the samo as if you
started a store of any kind and expect
ed the business to run itself. . '
The Conference on the Tariff Bill.' '
A Washington dispatch of the 31st
' says: The prospects of an aggreement
on the tariff were much improved to
day. For the first time in many days
the house democratic conferees, came
; from the meeting with the stateimnt
that the previous irreconcilable differ
ences were in progress of amicable ad
justment. With much satisfaction
the house members stated , to their
associates that the senators had shown
a disposition for the first lliue to meet
the house half way. ' As to when a full
aggreement would be perfected, there
was some differences of opinion. One
house conferree said it would probably
be this week. Another thought ' it
would be "soon." Chairman , Wilson
would not even admit the uuderstand-
' ing had gone far enough to warrant the
prediction of a speedy report. He said,
however, that the conferrees had at
' least done business and made progress
- today which was more than could have
been said of past meetings. The sen
ate eobferrees came from the meeting
without showing the hopefulness of
the bouse members. They said ' the
, "conference was as far from decision as
it had been. , While there was this
conflict among those thoroughly in
formed of the inside workings cf the
conference, the general belief prevailed
that the hopefulness of the house con
ferree had some substantial foundation.
One conferree said that while no
agreement had been made on iron,
coal and sugar, yet sufficient had been
, developed In conference to show that
an agreement could be reached on
these three most Important items,
which would be acceptable to the sen
ate and house conferrees and to the
house of representatives. Whether It
Vould be acceptable to the full senate,
this conferree expressed some doubt.
" In this connection it developed today
that Senator Caffery, of, Louisiana,
who has been most active on the sugar
question, had a long, and it is con
sidered satisfactory, conference yester
day with Speaker Crisp and Chairman
Wilson. " While the house conferrees
were so pleased at the bright outlook,
their senatorial colleagues consented
with saying that while they were hope
ful of reaching an understanding, noth
ing has transpired in . conference to
base this hope upon. They declare
that on the essential items of disagree-
,. mentthe members of the conference
fareaB far apart as they ever were. -'
' ,A Increased hopefulness that a bill
' will be agreed upon is noticable how
ever, upon the part of. the democratic
senators, who are not members of the
conference. One of the leading con
servative senators said, as he was leav
ing the senate chamber tonight, that
the tariff bill would finally be agreed
upon by next Monday, a ad he added
tljat the bill would virtually be the
senate bill. The day developed the
possibility of a report of partial agree
ment, and while this report at first ap-
' peared as a vague rumor, its probability
"' was afterwards confirmed by senators
. not members of the conference com
mittee. The fact that the conferrees
had the schedules other than those re
lating to sujrar, coal and Iron ore under
consideration today is one fact in con
firmation of the report.
Washington, Aug.. It was stated
by one of the senate conferrees tonight
that there was a possibility. of reaching
an agreement on the tariff bill about
the end of the week, with a probability
that the bill as finally agreed to would
be a compromise, for both the house
and seriate members feel that conces
sions will have to be made.
Washington, Aug. 2. The demo
cratic conferrees did not make as much
progress today as they had hoped for
when they went into session. Members
of the conference say the good feeling
still exists after today's meeting, and
that there Is some reason for the belief
that an ultimate, amicable settlement
will be reached, and that tomorrow or
the next day may see the end of their
deliberations. Chairman Wilson and
his associates express satisfaction with
the progress being made. Mr. Wilson
said that even if an agreement were
reached it could not be prepared in
time to report it this week. Today's
session was commenced at 10 and con
tinued until 1:3b. 'Another meeting
was held this afternoon." ''.'"

The encouraging news comes from
Hood River that there will be an im
mense crop of fine apples, which if they
can be saved and marketed, will make
up for the great loss sustained for want
of transportation by the berry growers
of that place. The apple crop can he
saved and marketed, and what is more
should be saved. The Farmer sincere
ly hopes that the progressive fruit
growers of the valley will see to it that
not an apple In the valley is allowed to
rot on the ground. Remember the
counsel we have been giving for the
past three years to dry every apple that
will not make a long keeper. . itemem
ber, of all the dried fruits that are
standard in the markets of the North
west, the dried apple is now most in
demand, and that the Oregon dried
apple is not to be found without a most
diiigent search. Hood River excels in
apples as well as strawberries. Pacific

Fruit as a Diet.
What is called the winter' diet is
composed of foods that are more or less
astringent. The spring diet, on the
other hand, should be laxative, and
nature provides delicious fruits, vege
tables and meats. . . -
In all cases there are habits, and in
many idiosyncrasies of the stomach
which are the best guides in- the selec
tion of foods. For instance, it is gen
erally believed .that the proper place
for a fruit course is at the end of a
meal, when the wine, sugar, acids and
salts lend valuable assistance to the di
gestive organs. - Juicy fruits, eaten
raw, that are unspoiled by sugar,
cream or pastry,' act like an apperrent.
People who live to eat and have in
mind the welfare of the stomach, pay
as much attention to the dinner fruit
as they do to any other course.
Says an epicurean on the subject:
The sick will be well and the well will
be beautiful when the fruit season is
properly understood. Fruit should be
eaten last; sent down the canal on top
of the freight to hasten its distribution.
If, however, it has been the habit to
eat fruit first, that habit cannot be
changed without mischief. Let well
enough alone. a' .
The banana it a splendid fruit where
it belongs. For the North American
it is one of the worst articles of con
sumption. Importations of green foods
are not as attractive as they appear.
Fruit freight travels slowly. To re
duce the risks taken in handling these
perishable goods, . they are packed
green. Bananas and tomatoes are put
in a sealed room heated by kerosene
lamps or gas, which inexpensive heat
brings out a rich color, but the perfec
tion the wine pulp and flavor is loBt.
Instead of being juicy the banana is
pasty and indigestible. The berries
brought in refrigerators are better. -
Oranges and lemons are good trav
elers, but the apples, pears, pineapples
and peaches lose in the trip. Try and
get supplies near home. Grapes,
oranges and grapefruits are so good,
because of their acid, wine and sugar,
that it is difficult to compare them.
Strawberries and fresh figs are worth
their weight in gold. There is a syrup
in the juices of great medicinal value.
Figs are grown successfully in the
south and they are well worth the trav
eler's attention, being too perishable for
transportation. Raw, ripe cherries are
cheap at any price, and so are sound
oranges. A fine orange full of wine
Is heavy; Weight is a test of fruit.
For the system set againts fruit, aspar
agus, lettuce, cauliflower, beets, arti
chokes, green peas and well strung
beans are good. There are properties
in the asparagus that are unsurpassed,
stimulating rather than nourishing the
tissues. The water in which asparagus
is cooked is one of the best washes for
the face and neck. It was used by the
beau'ies of antiquity, and is now 'being
resorted to by the English and French
ladies. Used after the bath, it will
make the skin fine, soft and clean.
Only the heart of lettuce is worth
eating. The outer dark green leaves
merely tax the digestion with so much
superfluous matter N. Y. World.
A Keliglons Fraud.
A dispatch from Fra n kford, Del
aware, says; It bns just been brought
to light that the burning in this place
on Julv 18th of the Church of the
Sanctified People, a new religious sect,
composed of ignorant and superstitious
persons, was the act of an incendiary.
The Sanctified People were first heard
of on ChincoteagUe Island, when Jo
seph Barnard Lynch made - the an
nouncement Vhat he had received from
a spirit in a dream certain rules for the
church, to be called the Church of the
Sanctified People. He said the angel
had also given him power to walk on
the water, just the same as Jesus Christ
did.. 'V '
Lynch secured 'the. confidence of
about 100 ignorant colored and white
people and held services on an island.
He celebrated feasts, and at each of
these he gave an exhibition of walking
on the sea. . Some people on the island
did not believe In Lynch and prepared
to make an investigation of his sea
walking act. They found that he had
a board walk laid about six inches un
der water and extending into the water
about 150 feet. : .....
About a ' month ago Lynch an
nounced that he would walk on the
sea. This was a chance for the non
believers and they tore up some of the
boards midway on the walk, and on
the day of the walking gathered on the
beach to await developments. Lynch
appeared on the beach and after per
forming some antics started on his
walk, but suddenly found - himseit
struggling in over six feet of water.
Some of his congregation started to his
rescue, but the non-believers would not
allow them to- euter the water. Oth
ers who knew of the board w. Ik, ti re
up the rest of the timbers, thus expos
ing Lynch to the crowd.
Lynch managed to crawl from .the
water, but was immediately pounced
upon by the crowd and severely beaten.
After leaving the island Lynch came
to Frankford, where he gathered to
gether about fifty followers and built a
small frame church. This was burned
by the citizens to drive Lynch out.

thirty minutes to
half a day, leaving as suddenly: but, for
several (lavs after, I was quite pros
trated and sore. Sometimes the attacks
were almost daily, then less frequent After
about four years of this suffering, I was '
taken clown with bilious typhoid lever, and
when I began to recover, I had the worst
attack of my old trouble I ever experienced.
At the first of the fever, my mother gave
me Ayer's Pills, my doctor recommending
them as being better than anything he
could prepare. I continued taking these
Pills, and so great was the benefit derived
that during nearly thirty years I have had
but one attack of my former trouble, which
yielded r.eadily to tlie same remedy."

Directions for Mixing the Acme Compound.
Weigh out ten pounds of the Compound and put it in a barrel or larere ket
tle; then pour on five gallons of boiling water gradually, until the mixture is of
the consistency of soft soap stirring it all the time. After it is thoroughly
dissolved add the balance of the water (forty-flve gallons), hot or cold hot pre
ferred. Do not boil the mixture. It is then ready to apply. Ef Besure and
have your kettles or barrel clean (also your spraying tatik) and free from other
mixtures, in order to avoid clogging your spraying nozzles.' Do not spray when
the trees are moist. For Codlin Moth use No. 2, and spray immediately after
the blossoms drop, then again four weeks after, which will destroy all other in
sects that may appear. Apply by means of a spray pump or a florist's syringe.
Coralitos, Cal., March 26, 1894. Watson, Erwiu& Co.: I used one hundred
pounds of your Acme No. 1, and it had the desired effect: it not only gets away
with the insect but it cleans up the tree and leaves it in a healty condition. I
will guarantee It will do just what it is recommended to do. Yours truly,

Niles, March 14, 1894. I have had six years' experience spraying, and used
various washes to quite an extent. For the last two seasons 1 have used Acme
Insecticide, and And it the best wash, and that it gives the best results of any
I ever used. It is a very pleasant wash to use, and easily prepared.
