In Jiihtice liowniHii's court ut White

Jomob, a will known Htoekman of
WeHtern Klickitat county, was called
upon to pay t;:i.75 for a12 calf, for
merly the property of J. (J. Clurkhon.
According to the evidence, brought
into court, ClarkHton traleil a calf
to Jones for its value in hay. When
ClarkHton weut to Camis Prairie he
found the hay of hint year's cut him
all mouldy. He then refused to ao
oept the hay and wanted his calf back.
Davis told him the calf was running
with his herd. After several days'
search, ClarkHton came upon the hide
of his calf. He thou brought suit
against Davis, und won nut iti the
local court, Jones being ussossed ith

stated, will appeal to tho uperior
J. O. Machines acted as attorney
Tuosday the case of the Htate of
Wimhitigton vs. Matthews was tried
out, and tho young man bound over
under U'200 bonds to appear before the
superior court, which convenes next
January at (loldendale. James lirowu,
the complaining witness in this case,
charged Matthews with taking a
purse and IU7 from his house. The
defendant brought in witnesses who
testified that they would not beleive
lirown under oath, and sought to
question the good standing of iirown.
On the other hand, 'Irown had wit
nesses who declared Matthews remark
ed in the piesenco of Hrown : "if 1
took your money I had as much right
to it as you." Another .witness de
dared Matthews even admitted taking
the coin. On thin ground, the young
man was bound over on the charge ot
grand larceny. John Loltind Hender
son of Hood itiver acted as Matthews'

Hottman was hound over to answer

Hottman made another road so Han

Oregon can ruise tho best apples in
the world. It not only can but it
does. At least that is tho opinion of
apple epicures in three continents.
ThoHe superb and matulilnss apples are
raised in only two or three sections
of tho state. Hood Kiver has and so
fa" deserves the greatest reputation
though other localities in eastern and
southern Oregon may and perhaps al
ready do produce apploa of equal ex
cellence. Ths Willamette valley can produce
excellent applet equal to those of Mis
souri, Michigan, New Vork and other
apple-famed states. Hut certainly
many of the apples raised in the Wil
amette valley and put upon the mark
et here and iu other towns ate not a
credit to this part of the state. If ot
fair size and tolerablo appearance
at a glnnooJUio producer can got some
thing for them, half or one third what
he could for a box ot line perfect ap
ples, and he would rather take what
he can get than to go to the trouble
and expense of rehabilitating his or
chard and keeping it free of pests.
Doubtless many orhardists of the
Willamette valley are entitled to he
exempted from this criticism. It docs
not apply to all, but it does apply to
many too many. The younger or
ohards, and tin newer men owning
orchards, we hope anil beleivo, are en
titled to ored it for an improvement
that it gradually taking plane, but
taking the whole region together the
Improvement seems sluggish.
The Willamette valley in tho early
(lays was tamed far anil wide for its
big red npbples, and then the poHts
hail nut played havoc witli the inch
ards, as they have been doing, in
many instances unmolested, for many
years. Thero ought to he a concerted,
determined elfort, backed by tho law,
to revl.o those early conditions in
this respect, for witli work enough
the pests can be eradicated.
Wormy apples ought tj bo driven
out of the market. Oregon people
living in towns are as well entitled to
gowd apples as the people of New
Vork City or London.

OF YE OLDEN TIME
At one time a purely religious fes
tival or holiday, it hardly stems pos
sible that times have changed so
much as to make of Hallowe'en a time
of frivolity and merrymaking, as it is
at the present time, says a writer in
the Salem Statesman. Ail Saints Day,
Hallowmas or All Hallows, was llrst
celobratd about CIO A. D. At tl'at
time tho llrst day of May was set
aside for a celebratio in memory of
those saints who had not already le-n
honored with a feact day. It was Im
possible to give to each one a day, so
it was decided that all should lie re
niembered ou a certain day, that day
to be called All Saints Day. The naii.e
"Hallowe'en" came from the name
"All Hallows," and meant, hs the
name implies, the evening l.efi re
About the year KM A. I), the day
was changed to Nnven.lcr I, rnd
since that time that day has I ecu

and Lutheran churchm.

Hums' poem "llalh wn n," in which

to Hallowe'en in Scotland. Hums
"Among the honnio winding I auks,

These ohservanes have descended
through generation after generation
and to this day are popular, not only
among tiie superstitious hut among the
sensible and practical young people of
America as well as among those of
lief ore the Clv.l war, in the south
ern stales, Hallowe'en was one of the
most popular holidays. It was th
custom there to observe it not unlike
wo, of tho present day, observe our
Decoration or Memorial day. Iu

Tho tricks and toHts common to Hal

southern young people. At the pres

hut not iu the same manner exactly,
us it was in tho olden days. Now the
usual mode of celebration is the re
moval of gates, the greasing of street
car tracks with soap, and other tricks
which, to the boyish mind, are amus

There are innumerable tricks that can

at any time, lint more practiced on
Hallowe'en, is the apple paring test.
A person is given au apple ami a
knife, the amde to be nared in a con
tinuous strip. After this is done the
paring is swung three times around
the head and these lines are repeated:
Apple, 1 pare and swing to know
I soon shall marry.
Prom my hand 1 now thee throw;
Mystic letter carry."
The paring is then dropped to the
floor and nearly always forms some
letter. Another is called the "Weal
or woe" test, and consists of suspeud
lug a horse hoo in a doorway, each
fortune seeker to attempt to toss an
apple through tho shoo. If successful.
