Oregon Bird Law.
Recently we made a plea for the birds.
Below we give an extract from the Ore
gon Bird Law. We respectfully ask
our citizens, especially our boys and
young men who delight to try their
skill with the rifle to carefully read
this law and faithfully observe the re
strictions placed therein. Not simply
because it is a law, but because of the
wisdom oi the enactment and the good
that will accrue from the observance of
It is a commendable trait in our boys
to desire to become expert marksmen.
It is one of the things which makes the
army and navy of the United States the
most enective in the world ana com
mands respect for our flag; but this
skill can be acquired by practice upon
such animals and birds as do more barm
than good to the industrial interests
of our country, to the taking of
such creatures as provide food fur
the huntsman, when in season, and not
to the destruction of those species
which by nature are scavengers, clear
ing the country of the tilth that endan
gers the health of the community by its
jKHution of the air and water, ana the
land of noxious weeds by feeding on
their seeds, and protecting the trees and
plants by living on the injurious insects
winch lntest them.
We do not believe there is a boy or
man in Hood River valley who will
willfully violate this bird law when he
rightly understands its import. But if
there is, no one should hesitate to make
camplaint against such person, for it
is as much for the good of the violator
of the law as for anv one that he be
brought to account for his crime.
"ThoBird Law of Oregon(signed by the
governor February 24, lwa) protects at
all times Gulls, Terns, Song, Weed-Seed
Eating, Insectivorous, and all other
non-game birds,also their nests and eggs.
Penalty upon conviction, a fine of not
less than $5 or not more than $100, and
in default of the payment of the fine im
posed, imprisonment at the rate of one
dollar each day of the fine imposed.
inceptions: Birds not protected are,
Euglieh sparrows, horned owls, hawks.

Game birds can ouly be killed during
the open season established by law.
Under the federal law a tine not exceed
ing tl'00 is also provided : (11 For the
delivery of any birds killed in violation
of die laws of Oregon to any express
railroad or steamboat company, or to
any other common carrier, for shipment
out of the state. (2) For the transpor
tation of such birds by any common
carrier out of the state. (3) For shii-

Iloole Goes East.
Great is Barrett and lloole is her
prophet. Crape is hanging on the eye
brows of the Glacier now because of the
sudden departure of the great and only
lloole, Thursday ,for "bleeding Kansas."
Mr. lloole handed in his bunch of Bar
rett news Wednesday, and looking sadly
at the devil remarked, "Mephistopheles,
1 leave you tomorrow. ' "Why thus,
father of Barrett?" replied the devil,
'who will do the Barrett stunt in your
absence?" "Barrett will languish until
we get our Hoole-a-gain," and the
prophet of Bartett shied the shooting
stick at the devil as he dodged behind
the galley rack. Mr. lloole did not know
when he would return, II at all, as he
was going on an important business
mission, the result of which was as
difficult to foresee as the future of Bar
rett. The only consolation the Glacier
lias is, that if our correspondent locates
in the state of blizzards and bushwhack
ers he cannot use our Barrett thunder
in that country. He has gone on record
here hard and fast. He lias said ".Bar
rett against the world" and that last
word includes the best part of Kansas
at least. We do not believe Brother
lloole can procure a divorce from Barrett
any way. co

of "failure to provide" because we have
abundant testimony that the

M. V. Isenberg'g Successor Appointed.
Saturday's Oregonian announces the
apKinlment of Adlolf Aschoff as suc
cessor of M. P. Isenlierg ex-supervisor
of the northern division of the Cascade
forest reserve. No better appointment
could have been made. Mr. Aschoff is
a careful, shrewd, thoroughly educated
gentleman, conscientious and faithful
in the discharge of his duties, and en
joys the confidence and esteem of the
men with whom he has to deal on the
range. Mr. Aschoff was Mr. Isenberg's
chief ranger and his marked ability in
that position was of great assistance to
Mr. Isenberg in performing his duties
as supervisor, which dutfcs Mr.Isenberg
ably executed, not "supposed to have
performed" as the correspondent to
Oregonian asserts. There is no one who
rcioices more over the final out come of
this investigation than Mr. Isenberg,
for he still retains a keen personal in
terest in the wellfare of the forest re
serve, and knowing Mr. Aschoff's
ability in this service, he is assured Uie
work will lie well cared for.
A bull in a China shop can smash
things up but it requires a man of
brains to build. Adolph Aschoff- is

An Interesting Article.
W. A l.niillaw has an article in the
May number of the Chamber Of Com
merce Bulletin in which he gives sonio
very interesting statistics concerning
the results of irrigation in the United
States. Among other tilings he says:-
On the authority of the United States
census for 1S00, the important state
ment is made that there were hardly
more than 3,000,000 acres of land In the
country which had felt the transform
ing touch of irrigation. Of these, a lit
tle more than 1,000,0(X) acres were in
California, while Colorado included
8!K),000 acres. The total value of these
lands were placed a,t ISMI.KoOX), aver
aging H:1.H per acre. The irrigated
lands of Utah were valued at $K4.25 per
acre, while those of the Golden Statu
averaged 150 per acre. The aggregate
cost of the entire irrigated area reached
the sum of 77,4!H),oi)0, and the net
profit of the farmers and on tiers of the
irrigating ditches was $210,1170,0011.
This enormous cost was due to an ex
tensive system of pipes under ground,
tending toward a great economy of wa
ter usage and the prevention of loss by
seepage. In some of the fruitgrowing
districts of California water rights
cost as much as ff00 per acre, though
the average cost was :i().28 per acre.
Here in Hood Itlver we can give Mr.
Laidfaw several points to the good and
discount him. Our water rights are ac
quired ato cost of $.')() an inch, requiring
not more than an inch to an acre.Our net
receipts run from 100 to $.r00 per acre,
and our cultivated irrigated land is
valued at from $.'100 to fJl.lKX) per acre.
