Mr. H. F. Davidsou has had con
structed a stump burner, made of sheet
iron, lu the shape of a stove, that will
likely revolutionize the work of clear
ing ground of stumps. The design was
brought here by Mr. Rone, when he
returned from the Sucker state last
spring. The ad vantages of this stump
burner, like a bob tail llush, are all in
the draw. It is said that when set
round a stump and loaded with pitch
wood and fired, it creates a draft that
can only be likened to a cyclone.
Davidson sat up with it eight hours
the other night, and after feeding it
about eight cords of pitch pine, it drew
tears to his calloused cheek, drew blis
ters on a log ten feet away, drew all
the neighbors within a radius of a mile
to see it work, and he thinks, if given
full vent, it would draw a mortgage on
the farm. He first bored a hole in the
stump, and with a stick of giant pow
dershattered and loosened.up thestump
to give the mersheen a good start.
After burning eight hours the stump
swelled up, probably with its import
ance of being lire first stump experi
mented with, and thesheet iron burner
can't be removed till the stump rtries
out next summer. A patent has been
applied for, and county and township
lights will be for sale by Bone & Da
Fruit Growers and Dairymen.
Fruit-growers and dairymen should
all examine the four week's special
course to be given by the Oregon agri
cultural college, beginning January 11,
1897. - It is to consist of lectures on the
various phases of horticulture, botany,
entomology, chemistry and dairying,
especially prepared for practical men in
these lines. The college laboratories,
libraries and scientific apparatus, in
cluding an electric slereopticon for il
lustrations, will be used in connection
with this course. Insect lite, fungus
diseases, that cannot be seen with the
eye, will be magnified two or three
thousand times so that their nature
and character will be plainly revealed.
Several specialists in horticulture and
dairying will deliver evening lectures.
Such men us M. O. Lownsdale, A. H,
Carson, Chas. Dailey, Dr. James
Witbyeombe, and others, will aid the
college with lecture work and make
the course of great value to the practi
cal people. The course is designed for
men and women who can leave their
farms and homes, only for a short time
and is planned upon a thoroughly
practical basis. - No charge whatever
will be made for the course and no ex
amination or educational qualifications
will be required for entrance. .
Farmers, farmers' wives, sons and
daughters ought to take advantage of
this course. By this course they can
become thoroughly familiar with mod
ern thought, scientific . investigation,
and practical application of the samei
There is a complete working dairy at
the colltjge in daily operation, and all
of those attending will have tire advan
tage of the practical work of the oper
ation of modern dairy machinery, in
chiding the running of the engine
All persoris attending the course are
requested to bring with them specimens
of insect pest or diseases af any kind
affecting their orchards, for examina
tion. , ..,'-.
Reduced rates will be given on the
O. R. & N. Those attending the course
coming on the East side will buy a
ticket to Albany and ask the agent for
a receipt for'the amount paid for the
same. On returning, this receipt, with
t he signituie of the presidentof the col
lege, will entitle the holder to return
home at one-third the regular rate.
For further particulars, write to H.
B. Miller, the president of the college.

day, with a good attendance. Re
ports submitted showed balances in the

The Frankton literary society dis
posed of the strawberry and apple ques
tion last Saturday evening, deciding
that the strawberry was a more profit
able crop to the Hood River farmer
than the apple, though the decision
isn't likely to cause our orchards of
apple trees to be immediately replaced
by strawberry plants. At their next
meeting, Saturday night, the follow
ing question will be debated: "Re
solveu, That the United States should
recognize the Cubans as belligerents."
It is hoped that congress will not settle
the question before the members of the
Frankton debating society have a
chance to air their statesmanship. ;

In Loving Remembrance of Bessie Miller
We watched her breathing through the night,
Her breathing soil and low, ...::
As in her breast the wave of life
Kept ebbing to and fro.
So silently we spoke her name, , "
So softly moved about; -
As we had lent her half our powers
To eke her being out.
But when the morn came, still and sad,
And chill with early showers, ,'. .
Her quiet eyelids closed, and she had
Another morn than ours. ,' '
Sleep sweetly,Bessie,dear,in your haven of rest
Where all is peace and love;
And though the body slumbers here, v
The soul is safe in heaven above. .
