TO ASK FOR COUNTY
State Board of Horticulture Will
Apply to the Legislature
K. L. Smith, preiiiilent f the' state
board of horticulture, rehirnerl Friday
from Portland, where he a eittaeed
with Secretary Latnberaen in compiling
the eighth biennial report of the board.
Mr. Smith rayi he 1ms a large
amount of wtirk wn ids bun ill yet before
he can turn the copy into the hands of
the itate printer
When in Portland. Mr. Smith con
ferred with Commissioner Newell of
W'aahinKton county, who ia also a mem
ber of the etatw legislature which eon
venei In January, reffardfftg the pro-
posed letfWilaMon wdien tm eiaw ooara
of horticulture will ask fof. The idea
of a county inepeetor appear very favor
able to Mr. Smith and Cwnmmsiofier
There 1 if ae teBrpWrt any appro
priation from the state for a fruit in
ipector, ay Mr. Smith, and m the
plan or county fruit irmpectori seems to
work satisfactorily in California, Idaho
aid Washington, it should be given a
trial in Oregon is the opinion of the
members of the horticultural board.
The itate board of horticulture has
compiled an unofficial report of the
years trait crop and finds that it will asr
gregate f2,240,ux,ditributed as follows:
Apples, i(M&,oou ; prunes, i.iw.uw;
f 10 1,000; pesdlies,175,OO0; small fruits,
In Southern Oregon the yield was
400,000 baxes of apples, 100,000 of pears,
250,000 baskets of peaches, 75,000 crates
of small fruits and 8,000,000 pounds of
dried prune. Tills Is a nearly full crop
me yield oi peacnes naving neen the
best. There waa a comparatively poor
yield of prunes as elsewhere, the ubual
amount beina 7.000.000.
The Hood River Valley is long on ap
ples and will continue to be to now for
all time. The younger orchards have
not come into bearing yet, however.
mere are several times many young
trees in the Hood River valley aa those'ln
bearing, and in three of tear years the
yield there win rival imu tn Hontnem
Oregon. Ibis year them are 100,000
boxos ot apples, 1W carloads, Jn a
half dozen years the present orchardage
will produce 600.QC4 botes.
The best apple crop has long since
leen contracted for. The Hood River
Newtowna sold for 1.76 box and Hpitz-
enbergifor $2.10. Ben Davis apples
were sum ior no cents.
Speaking of the fruit situation, Mr.
nmit n waa quoted by a Portland paper
"The most notable thing is the num
ber of vouns orchards betas set out
The fruit crop of todny tn nothing torn
Pared to what it will fee tn a few vuare.
New orchards are very oenimon all ewer
the state, especially east of the moun
tains. Southern Grown -also receiv
lag a great "deal of attention, but the
Willamette-valley is taltinr more to the
diversified farming and the growth of
the lame commercial orrhards isnot so
nmrkeH M Wsewhere. The Hood Kiver
valley and Grande Konde valley seem
to be getting the most of the increase,
The partial failure of certain varieties
oi iruita this summer does not seem to
to have affected the increase in the
least, Ev turner there wurt fewor
prunes than usual, no "one believes that
a short crop like that ia likely to happen
"As to ihe mttrket forofunes. I W
liuve it will be better every year from
now on,- it naa long since readier! its
lowt'Bt mark and better prices will be
had each year."

TELLS OF OREGON
Write Florida Friends of Beautiful
Scenery and Hallowe'en Prank.
Albert Anson (iralmin, newsboy for
Siocoin the bookman, writes the follow
ing letter to his home paper, the Oculu,
"Since arriving in this country I have
completely fallen in love with it. Hueu

IN THE PETITION
Did not State Day When the County
Court was to Receive Same.
The iietition of the West Side farmers
for a bonding district for the construc
tion of an irrigating system above the
Farmers' Irrigating Co', ditch, was
denied by the county court at its special
session last week because the petition
failed to state the specific day w hen the
petition was to lie presented to the
county court. The fact that it was to
1m? presented at "the special session of
court in December" was insufficient
notice, and therefore made it impossible
for the court to recognize the petition.
The farmers had no representative at
the meetim? of the court, the petition
being tent Irom here by Commissioner
Hihlmrd, while Attorney Javne and N.
C. Kvans appeared to oppose the grant
ing of the same. Attorney Jayne made
a thort address to the court, pointing
out the legal d fects in ihe petition and
giving a lew reasons why he objected to
the petition lciig granted.
Commissioner llinbard remarked on
his return that the court could do noth
ing but reject the petition since it was
incorrectly drawn up.
The other business before the court
was the granting of a long list of bills
for expenses of election judges and
clerks of election.
ti. It, Castner was up from Hood
River with a petition to have road dis
trict No. 3 divided, but as such matters
are given a hearing only at the regular
sessions ol the county court, it went
over to the January session. Districts
ISo. 3 and 4 were consolidated last
spring and now there appears to be a
sentiment favoring a division of the
district. One part of the people want
a division running north and south on
the county road running south from the
city limits, while another desire is to
have the line running east and west at
the same point. The uestion will be
decided at the January term of court.
Jio Mere Suffering.
If you are troubled with indigestion
get a bottle of Kodol Dyspepsia Cure
and see how quickly It will cure you.
Geo. A, Thompson, of Kpencer, Iu.,ayH:
"Have had dyspepsia for twenty Yearn.
My case was almost hopeless. Kodol
Dyspepsia Cure was recommended and
I used a few bottles of it and it Is the
only tliingthat lms relieved nie. Would
not he without It. Have doctored with
local physicians and also at Chicago,
and even went to Norway with boes
of getting some relief, but Kodol Dya-
