The Wilson tarift law reduced the,,, ... TT . ,,i..
duty on eggs from 5 cents to 3 cents
per dozen. Protection papers can
prove, to their own satisfaction, at
least, that this reduction of 2 cents has
caused the price of eggs to flop from
20 cents to 8 and 10 cents per dozen.
Canadian eggs, they say, are being
shipped into Ihe United States to the
ruination of prices here. Now, If this
is what caused the price of eggs to drop
to 10 cents here in Oregon (when at the
same timelthey were worth 30 cents in
Chicago) in the dead of winter, we
want a "settln " of Canadian eggs.
Poultrymen and farmers have long
been looking for a breed of chickens
that will lay eggs in winter, when
enow covers the ground, like it does in
Canada in some places fpr about six
months of the vear. If Canadians can
sell eggs cheaper than the farmers Of
the United States, H must be taat they
liave different breeds from what we
have this side of the border. r'
The bill to purchase the battlefield of
Shiloh and make it a national mem
orial park, passed congress and was ap
proved by the president. Shiloh will
be the great national memorial park of
the old army of the Tennessee, the
Ohio and the Mississippi, where 114,
338 men, representing 258 different or
ganizations, engaged in one of the
greatt battles fought during the civil
war. The survivors of this battle, of
the blue and the gray, will hold a re
union on the battlefield on the 5th, 6th
und 7th of April, which will be the
largest held in the South since the war.

The shipment of strawberries from
Hood River during the berry season,
lasting over four weeks, proved one of
the most interesting and attractive
features of the exhibit, and was indeed
a revelation to the people from Dela
ware, Maryland, New York and all the
strawberry producing districts in the
world. The berries from the states
near by would only last one day for ex
hibition, while the Oregon berries were
fresh and attractive several days after
they were received in Chicago, anil the
banner placed over this exhibit an
nouncing that in Oregon grows the
'reddest, juciest, best flavored and best
shipping strawberry in the world' was
never disputed. One of the grandest
things ever seen in the strawberry line
was one stalk containing four hundred
and eighty-three well developed berries,
sent by W. P. Watson frtna -Hood
JUAwen This single stalk was carefully
planted in a garden pot and transport
ed in a glass frame and proved such an
attractive feature that an official ex
amination was made by order of J. M.
Samuels, chief of the department of
horticulture, and the measurements
are officially recorded. Two
twigs fifteen inches in length, contain
ing 56 and 88- silver prunes on each,
were exhibited by W. P. Watson, Hood
River. -.'. In apples we sus
tained the title that 'Oregon Is the land
of big red apples,' by showing the larg
est red apples, as well as the biggest
yellow apples. Quite a rivalrv existed
among several of the states as to which
state could produce the largest apple,
aud the official record shows that the
Oregon apple measured sixteen and
one-half inches in circumference, six
and one-fourth inches high, weighing
thirty-three and one-fourth ounces, and
was absolutely perfect in every partic
ular. The high color and large growth
of our apples made them much sought
after by pomological experts . and
scientists, and for size, flavor, form and
color, the Oregon apple exhibit was the
The Deadly Grip.'
More people have died from grip
than were ever swept away by a chol
era epidemic. In Europe the mortal
ity for the winter has been greater.than
in any previous year. England's
death roll is almost unprecedented, the
mortality there from influenza alone
exceeding 5,000. The medical journals
of Germany and France, are full of
statistics which, although incomplete,
indicate that both countries have been
swept by the disease, whito it is esti
mated that 12,000 Russians, at least,
have been carried off. ...
A Berlin expert, iu summing up an
exhaustive article on the subject, as
serts that every civilized nation on the
globe has been ravaged, and roughly
estimates the mortality of the world
from this cause at 80,000.
While a great deal has been written
about the grip in this country, it is ap
parent that we have escaped a general
epidemic. The greatest damage has
been done in the North and iu the
lake states. So far as statistics are ob
tainable, they indicate that between
400 and 500 people have died in greater
New York since last December. In
Connecticut the death rate has been
enormous, and further up in New Eng
land the disease is still rampant. Bos
ton is in the throes at present and a
number of industries are temporarily
dormant as a result. St. Louis Re

" In Union is Strength."
Portland, Ore., March 18, 1895. Edi
tor Glacier: Since the annual meet
ing of the Hood River Fruit. Growers'
Union, at which meeting it was voted
to join the State Union, many of the
growers of that vicinity have taken
new interest in the subject of thorough
co-operation. The plan and principles
are very simple and so can the market
ing be. The main object is to keep
control of your fruit until you get your
money. The matter of advances is also
wrong. If you are on a sound business
basis, you will need none. It is only
another way of losing control of your
fruit. The principle of co-operation in
volves just the local organization which
must be controlled by the growers
themselves then a State organization
that will act for the different local or
ganizations as the local organization
does for its members.- The same theory
that necessitates the local union makes
a state union absolutely needed for suc
cessful co-operation. I
This State Uniou ( Oregon Fruit
Union) will gather information, em-
filoy eastern agents, superintend grad
ng and packing, open up new markets,
settle with the transportation coimany,
and carry on the work of organization;
keep well posted as to shipments from
other sections, and to what markets.
Without this, local unions have hin
dered the fruit growers In that they are
competing with each other.
The greatest drawback and hindrance
to united effort is the suspicion and dis
trust the growers have regarding the
management of the state and local
unions. The grower is . not altogether
at fault in this, for it seem that iu the :
past, the sale of our fruits has unfairly
enriched many so-called reliable com
mission ho,uses;yet it must be overcome
and complete co-operation is the only
wav. The whole thing is a matter of
dollars for fruit aud it is strange that
growers will let the matter of senti
ment and ev n of politics enter into
tjiese simple fruit marketing organiza
tions. A few growers must not seek to
control the majority. The growers who
do should not be given official posi
tions. The man that does not seek
such position is the man best fitted for
it. A man who turns the grindstone
is anxious to sharpen something. Cor
operation is simple. Too many rules,
by-laws, meetings, and too much talk
will ruin organization. Start out on
simple plans that are presented with
fairness and where success is attained,
let well enough alone and do not seek
to better a good thing until experience
promises still better results. Do not
trust your business witli any one who
cannot present a clear, definite and suc
cessful . proposition to work on and
adopt no plan that Is intricate to figure
out at the end. 'Don't trust to Tuck
later. Dopt experiment on new plans
or some inexperienced man's " I think
it will work." Profit bv others' ex
perience and unless you have lots' of
money cioii't ride a nouoy on "uanai
Fruit grower, trust your neighbors;
stick together; talk less, aud if matters
arise that warrant a feeling of distrust,
go to headquarters. Don't gossip. Put
up good fruit in good shape and let all
those, in all parts of the state, who
favor complete co-operation unite, and
leave the uncertain and suspicious ones
alone. Work in harmony on business
principles. The coming year will work
the problem, and the unbelievers will
one by one fall in line and successful
marketing for - Oregon fruit growers
win be accompiisned.

Of course lie is to blame, Didn't his
wife ask him-every night for a month
if there was danger of frost, and then
go ahead and bUudle up her plants in
his latest and best exchanges when he
assured her there was no danger what
ever? And on this particular night,
didn't he fail to go out and consult
the thermometer on the back porch,
and allow his wife to neglect to cover
the plants as much as usual? Why,
Which reminds us of a story: A lov
ing young husband was one evening
taking in his wife's house plants to
save them from an expected visit from
Jack Frost. "Be careful, John," the
wife said, "with that fuschia my
mother gave me." "Your mother
didn't give you this , fuschia," said
John; "it is one I bought myself."
"Why, .no, John, you did not." John
and his wife argued over the fuschia
till they had a regular spat, their first.
John got mad when he found be
couldn't have the last word and got up
and left and didn't show up for five
years. Remorse worked upon him and
he went back to his once loving wife
with a determination Jo forgive and
ask forgiveness. The wife met him
with open arms, and both were oh so
happy to think that they could make
up and forget the past. - "And just to
think," said the wife, "it all happened
over that fuschia mother gave me."
"I beg your pardon," said John, "but
your mother never gave you 'that
fuschia. It was one I gave you my
self." "Oh, no, John," replied the
wife. "I. remember the time mother
gave it to me just as well as if it hap
pened only yesterday." 'John thought
he had a good memory, too, and tried
to convince her on the disputed point,
declaring he bought the fuschia; his
wife declared he didn't, till John got
up and left again aud hasn't been
heard from since.
