$10,000 LAND SALES
AT WHITE SALMON
S. Waters, the Izaak Walton of
White Salmon, who wai in the city
Friday, brings the good news that the
White Salmon Land Co., the recently
organized real estate oompany In that
town, has transacted land sales within
the last three weeks aggregating
S. W. Condon, who disposed of bis
ten acres and reaidenoe to V. A.
Bradley of Spokane for fcWOO, has
made one of the latest transfers. Mr.
Bradley was attracted to White Sal
mon hecauso of the fruit Industry;
is duliguted with his purchase and
intends to move there with bis fmily
within a month or so. People from
all parts of Washington and Oregon
and the Kant are inquiring for White
Salmon Fruit laud, and Mr. Waters
expocts to see many new settlers in
that part of Klickitat county within
the coining six months.
Mr. Waters has contended for years
that the White Salmon valloy has
some of the best fruit land in Wash
ington, and has done considerable to
attract immigration to his town and
country. Mr. Waters believes that
some day White Salmon will have rail
road facilities, but even if these con
veniencies do not come for several
years, the farmer who is looking for a
place where he can secure good land
at a reasonable price should look np
the White Salmon country.
"When I was married I went on a
farm in Wisoonsln that was 50 miles
from a post office, and today that
country is one of the best counties
in the state of Wisconsin," says Mr.
Dr. Dumble bad a force of men last
week setting out apple trees on his
recently acquired property near tbe
Alton Cunning is moving his house
hold goods to Kggermont. The fam
ily will come In the near future.
(. E. Williams was in this neighbor
hood last week looking over his apple
orchard, and making arrangements
for its cultivation and additional im
provements. A little sou of W. F. Gregory was
seriously ill last week, but we are
glad to note that It Is now fairly on
the way to recovery.
Miss Swlgert has made considerable
Improvement ou bor farm this spring.
Among other things she has had quite
a number of apple trees set out.
The doctor was called on Tuosday
morning to see the youngest daughter
of Mr. and Mis. P. 11. Martin who
is on the sick list.
The prevalence of the whooping
cough in this neighborhood has re
duced the attendance of the school to
a considerable extent.
(Jreatcst Man In California.
San Francisco News Letter.
it Is said Unit tbe man who does
tlm most for humanity is the one who
can make two blades of grass grow
where but one grew before, liurbank
Is doing moie than this, lie Is mak
ing fruit aud flowers and plants grow
which never grew before, and those
wliloh he originates are better than
those which were grown in former
years. He bus put agriculture and
horticulture in California on a new
and better basis. The list of his ac
complishments are too long to enu
merate. And they are diverse. He
has removed the pit from the plum
and given as a result the plumoot,
containing the best properties of
each. Ho has produced a potato
which means the salvation of agricul
ture In Ireland. He has painted the
blackberry white and the California
poppy red. Through his experiments
the spines have peen removed from
the cactus, and a forage plant results
which means untold thousands of
dollars to tbe cattlemen of the South
west. The list of his new varieties of
plums and prunes reaches past half a
hundred. The sugar prune, the best
grown in bis state is his; tbe giant,
the best canning plum was originated
by the California wizard of horticul
ture. From an Insignificant flower
from Australia he has produced a
large beautiful one which never fades,
and which bids fair to revolutionize
tbe milliner? business, for it has
been purchased by a firm of Parisian
milliners, who propose to use it in
the trimming of women's hats.
And the man Is only at the begin
ning of bis work. For long years he
struggled along wrapped up in what
be was doing, but obliged at the same
time to look out for the hread and
butter end of the game. Since the
grant to him by tbe Carnegie insti
tute of $10,000 a year, this has changed
and now he is at liberty to devote all
bis time to his chosen work. It will
not be long before he is acknowleged
to we what some now proclaim biin
the greatest man in California.
Enjoys the Odell Xotes.
C. A. Hamilton of the Mutual Life
Insuranoe Co., of New Vork in a
lotter to the Glacier says :
"I lind In reading over the Ulacier
many things that are interesting to
mo, and I read the correspondence
from Udell and other places just as
enthusiasticallly as if I knew the
locality and the people (which I do
not only through your paper), but
each week the reporter from Odull
usually does well, whether some
dear one has been laid to rost, or
a happy event bas been celebrated."
