Sixteen forest reserves were estab
lished under Harrison 'sad ministration,
embracing 13,000,000 acres. Early in
Cleveland's administration the seven
teenth, the Cascade reserve, was added,
and the total then exceeded 17,500,000
acres. The president's proclamation
February 22d added thirteen tracts,
making a total of nearly 40,000,000
acres. The sheep men and the great
lumbeilnir interests are working hard
to have tli$ president revoke the order
Creating the lust sixteen reserves, or at
least to modify their sweeping bounda
ries. The members of the forestry
Commission were ordered to Washing
ton and have been in consultation with
the president and Secretary Bliss. The
forestry proclamation will not be re
voked, but its provisions will be ad
justed by presidential orders as to spe
cific tracts. When the surveys it is
ejtpected will be ordered ly congress
are completed the president will ex
empt from the provisions of the proc
lamation such lands as are of farming
or agricultural character, or where the
settlers' rights are injured'.
TheDingley tariff "appears, to be
specially designed to help trusts and
monopolies. - In the form it passed the
lower house of congress it takes several
dollars from the pockets of the people
for every one it turns into the national
treasury. Asa whole, it confers even
greater benefits upon privileged indus
tries than did the McKinley bill itself.
In many cases, though increasing the
burdens of taxation, it decreases the
income from customs duties by prohib
itive duties. The only important in
creases exnected are from sugar and
wool two articles necessary to health
and comfort which should not be taxed
at all in times of peace, or while it is
possible to obtain sufficient revenue
from other sources.

Price of Strawberry Crates.

Glacier: The Hood River Fruit Grow

Smith to furnish crates to members at
18 cents per crate this season. The
members will give him orders on the
union, payable at different dates
through the season which may be
agreed upon, so that all parties may
have a portion of the returns as they
come in. Mr. Smith having leased the
warehouse of the Oregon Fruit Union

To Prevent Forest Fires.
One of the most important laws en
acted by the last congress tobenefitset
tiers living in the timbered sections in
the Pacific Northwest was the one
which received the approval of the
president oif Februrry 24th, intended
to prevent forest fires on the public
domain. Following is the full text of
the new law:
Be it enacted by the Senate and
house of representatives of the United
States of America in Congress assem
bled: That any person who shall wil
fully or maliciously set on tire any tim
ber, underbrush or grass upon the"pub
lic domain, or shall carelessly or negli
gently leave or suffer fire to burn unat
tended nearany timber or other infiam
able material, shall be deemed guilty
of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction
thereof in any district court of the
United States having jurisdiction of
tne same, snail be nnea in a sum not
more than $5,000, or be imprisoned for
a term of not more than two years, or
Sec. 2. .That any person who shall
build a camp fire or other fire In or near
any forest, timber or other Infiamable
material upon the public domain shall,
before breaking camp or leaving said
Are, totally extinguish the same. Any
pei-son failing to do so shall be deemed
guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon con
viction thereof in any district court of
the United States having jurisdiction
of the same, shall be fined in a sum not
more than $1,000, or be imprisoned for
a term not more thanoneyear, or both.
Sec. 3. That in all canes arising under
this act the fines collected shall be paid
into the public school fund of the coun
ty in which the lands where the offense
was committed are situate.
A Word About Pruning. "
This is the season of the year that
the tree butcher gets in his work. The
"expert pruner" with ax, saw, and a
pair of hedge shears, and who trims
trees down to mere stumps, is about
offering his services. Orchardists
should give him a wide berth. This
is applicable to all parts of Oregon, but
the thought has been suggested by
institute workers returning from
Southern Oregon who report over
pruned orchards as about the worst
feature of orcharding in that part of
A healthy tree well headed at the
start, the bead twenty to thirty inches
from the ground, needs only to have
deformed, crotclied, and crossed limbs
removed, with now and then a branch
taken out. to thin out the top. The
shape of the tree should he governed by
pinching, and removing small twigs
with a budding knife. All other prun
ing is unnecessary, and a wanton de
struction that seriously Impairs 'the
vitality and usefulness of the tree. U.

While John Niver was driving the
Arlington-Fossil stage to Fossil, and
when about two miles from this town,
the wheels became so encased with
mud that they refused to go round, and
the driver jumped offthecoach to un
hitch the horses and pack the mail in
to town. When lie leaped he sank in
to the mud over his knees and in ex
tricating himself pulled both legs out
of his rubber boots. When he stooped
to pick up his boots, he could find no
trace of them, and although the moon
was shining brightly, he failed to locate
them afier a thorough search. While
he was putting the mail sucks on the
horses' backs one of his socks was also
swallowed up by the mud. The spec
tacle of the mail currier walking into
town barefooted, leading two very tired
horses over whose backs were strung
the- mail bags, furnished considerable
amusement to those who were at the
postofiiice waiting for their mail.

Hood Kiver Valley.
BY J. M. BURMNGAMR.
Fair valley, he who views thy face
Wreathed, all, in Nature's loneliest grace,
May well believe the enchanted wand
Of Beauty's spirit clothed thy land.
No prettier vale beneath the sun;
Through none a lovelier stream doth run;.
Spring's sweetest flowers the woods bedeck,
And with bright hues the landscape fleck.
Neat homes, arranged with deftest care,
Dot the bright prospect everywhere;
A score of peaks around thee stand
In lofty outlines huge and grand.
But yonder, where the prospect ends,
Hood's mighty column high ascends;
And this rich valley, soft and fair,
Touches bis feet and endeth there.
The grandeur of the lofty peak
Forbids the voice of man to speak
Resting in the eternal snow, '
Bathed in the sunlight's brilliant glow.
Were be ten thousand times as high,
Yet he would only reach the sky
And point the way from earth to God
Through loveliest vale foot ever trod.
He who hath reached the enchanting vale
May here well furl the useless sail,
Here feel the soothing April showers
That intersperse the restful hours.
The rainbow view on mountain side,
In green and gold and purple tide:
And 'neath his vine and fruit tree rest
Among earth's happiest most blest. '
