The article by Prof. Hedrlck of tbe
state agricultural college in another
column gives advice in regard to fruit
treei tbat fall to bear fruit. , Root prun
Ing and summer pruning may be all
right and are recommended by some of
our raot successful growers, but to
plant wheat at rye or othef like crops
in Hd River orchards, in our opin
ion, would n've the trees such a buck
set they would never recover. A crop
of wheat sown broadcast and allowed
to ripen would rufu any orchard here,
unless thoroughly irrigated. If the
trees were spaded around and the raid
die of the rows only sown to wheat or
rye, it might be all right. When trees
are checked in tbelr growth from any
cause tbey are attacked by the borer,
Root pruning and summer pruning
would be much safer than sowing the
orchard to small grain.
- The summer boarder is with us again.
Hood River derives considerable rev-
en ue from the people who come from
Portland and other parts of 'the Wil
lamette to enjoy our delightful sum
mers, and we should encourage them
to come by giving them the best we
have iu the way of country fare. They
want plenty of fruit and vegetables,
fresh butter, eggs and milk, and are
not apt to refuse spring chicken. They
also want to see the country, go Ash
ing and climb the mountains, and a
team at their disposal will ' be appre
ciated. Hood River is becoming each
year more of a health and pleasure re
sort, and every summer boarder who
h fairly treated while here will adver
tise the place and come again.- ;
Senator Cannon of Utah submitted
an amendment to the Dingley tariff
bill, providing for the payment of an
export bounty on rye, wheat, corn and
other agricultural products. Mr. Can
non estimated that about $50,000,000
would be required to pay the bounties
. provided for under his amendment.
The amendment was rejected. Pro
tection senators know that when they
attempt to protect all classes the whole
fabric of protection will fall to the
ground. Only the chosen few can
he protected under a tariff bill.
Farmers will have to be satisfied with
a tariff on wheat aud cotton, which
- A Chicago physician is said to be do
ing great injury to bis business by pre
wiibing air for two of the most com
mon complaints doctors have to treat.
These are headache and indigestion.
- To cure these things be tells his pa
tients to throw their shoulders back
and breathe deeply, retaining the air
in the lungs several seconds before re
spiring. Another doctor has said peo
ple fould cure half their ills by the
same method of deep breathing, but
they won't, because the remedy is so
simple and Inexpensive. ,.
The United States senate is still
rent ling with the Dingley bill, and it
may come u a vote some time during
the summer. The heavy work of
shaping a tariff bill Is beginning to tell
upon our noble senators, and some of
them, if we are to judge by the pro
ceedings, hardly know "where they
are at." We read of Southern "dem
, ocratss" voting for protection amend
ments and republican senators favor
ing iuternai revenue taxes to make up
the expected deficiency. ' : ' v" ,

Bringing 'frees into Bearing.
Mr. Schaiino of the fourth horticul
tural distiict has called my attention
to the fact that trees in his district, es
pecially apple trees from eight to ten
years old, have never borne fruit, and
asks my opinion as to, how it may be
There may be several causes. . The
barrenness may be in the variety, as
the Northern Spy; It may be caused by
a soil too rich, or by over cultivation.
The last two conditions are most com
mon, and not infrequent in Oregon.
It Is one of the three, I take for' grant
ed is the cause iu Hood River and the
fourth district. Orcnadists have these
methods of bringing trees into liearing:
Root pruning, summer pruning and
sowing some crop in the orchard.
: Boot pruning, by cutting off a part
of the food supply, deprives the leaves
of their usual nourishment, and pre
vents their using the nutritious matter
on hand. The branches are therefore
retarded in their growth, food accumu
lates and fruit buds are formed, be
cause the energies of the tree are divert
ed from plant-growth to fruit-bud for
mation. Root pruning is accomplished
by digging a trench the width of a
spade at a radius of several feet from
the trunk and from two to three feet
deep, v In so doing enough of the roots
will be cut to secure the object sought,
and should be performed in winter.
The treatment is somewhat harsh, alid
must be done very judiciously.
In summer pruning, by depriving a
tree ot part of its foliage, the exuber
ance of growth Is checked, because the
assimilation of food is greatly hindered.
Summer pruning is best accomplished
by cutting off a few of the smaller
branches not required in forming the
frame of the tree, and after the young
shoots have made a growth of several
inches, by pinching them back two or
three Inches, fruit spurs will be the re
sult. ' It is easy to overdo summer
pruning, and the remedy should be re
sorted to only when absolutely neces
sary, and then cure must lie exercised.
.The last remedy for non-bearing trees
is most frequently employed, and has
tne least objectionable features, in an
orchard where the soli is so rich that
trees become too luxuriant in foliage a
crop of grain for one1 year is a very . ef-
lectuui ana convenient way or throw
ing the trees into hearing.

'; The Forestry Policy.
"Stop my paper. I don't want a
journal that supports the government
in ousii'ig settlers from the ' public
lands." This complaint comes from a
settler wnose nomesteaa is within one
of the forestry reservations proposed by
President Cleveland. Now, as we have
previously said, we telieve the rights
of bona tide settlers in such cases
should be carefully and fully cared for
This done, however, we still insist that
forestry reservations are essential to
the prosperity of our Western country.
We are intimately acquainted with the
spirit which prevails in some sections
that the limber on public lands is com
mon spoil for any who are disposed to
take it. But this sentiment is all
wrong. The preservation of our Rocky
mountain forests, and of forests in
oi her set tioiis, is vital to an adequate
supply of water for irrigating purposes.
It is also the first essential in the pre
vention of drouths and floods, such as
have worked havoc in the Missouri
aud Mississippi valleys Ibis spring.

Opinion on Ticks.
Sticking to the sage brush the grease

county, Is a species of exodus albipic
tus, and by people in a hurry called
wood ticks'. They are dipterous, with
steel traps on their feet and a diamond
drilling apparatus attached to each pal
pus. They sometimes feed on dogs,
but prefer boys and printers. They
are without wings,- but can jump 300
feet, and when they get beneath your
pajams, the damage . they do is not so
much in what they eat as what they
tramp down. A wood tick is not so
large as a bull dog, but he Is more to
be dreaded than a book agent or a
Spanish , mule. Some people, when
they find an exodus albipictus sticking
to them, take the bullet moulds and
ruthlessly tear away what there is In
sight, but this is not the correct way to
do, as 1J. leaves the mandibles, slili in
your company, aud a sore that will not
quit itching for nine years. The only I
