"In the Willamette Valley I have
not found condition nearly no good.
Not enough cure In taken in the cul
ture of the t:oon, which in many run
are allowed to fake caie of themtidven.
Above all things in fi uit-ralhing, at
tentiou Mhould bo given to the culti

be uultivated frequently in the Spring
and Hummer moutliH, and plowed, but
not deeply. What in wauled it) to

down. The nitrogen and hiimiiH ol

Kor this purpoHo, it in well to plow

out by the roots.
"The Willamette Valley in not a
very good prune country, an there ii
too much rain in tho drying season.
It is better adapted to the production
of applet) and pears.
"The raising of nuts in Oregon
Bhould be encouraged. Thin is an
ideal country for their culture. Eng
lish walnuts will be especially pro
ductive. At Dundee, in Yamhill
County, I Haw an orchard belonging
to Thomas J'rinco, who has lin acris

by Willamette Valley farmers. Instead
of ralHing wheat alone, which impov

tho soil could bo fertilized.

Origin of the Wertl Oregon.
The origin of the word Oregon Is
clouded in mystery. It was first uted
by Captain Jonathan Carver in a book
called "Three i ears' Travel 1 hrotigh
th Interior l'arts of North Amricu,
for more Than l ive Thousand Miles,
in tho Years 17(f 17W, " which was
published in London in i"x. It does
not appear from the book tint Carver
cainouuy furthei west than Minnoaotii,
where, he says, tho Indians told him
a great river called "Oregon, or the
Kiver of the West," rose near the
Mississippi and Mowed westwaid

a Connecticut jankee, who served as
a Holdier through the 1' reach and In
dian war, and afterwards, on his own
hook, explored niithcin Michigan,
Wisconsin and ;inni m !a He return
td to his home, vi.lel H bock and
endeavored to peisiiide the cdonial
HiithoritloH in -New Vork and New
England to pay the cost of its iibli
cation, or Bt least reimburse him for
his expoiiHes. Having failed on this
side, he went to Londi n to appeal to
the government there, lie man! ged to
get Ida book printed, but obti ined
nothing more, and died destitute in
London in 17HH.
Tho liauie Oiegiai did not Hppeut in
print again until William Cullen liiy
aut ptibliHliod his poem "Thanntopir, "
in 1H17. Ho had evidently read Car
ver's book, and his sensiliva ear was
llesatd with the pi.elic rliytlim of the
wonl "Oregon." 'J heodore W inthrop
(ueated the word "Tacomu" in his
"Canoe ami Saddle" in a silnilai

wrote pamphlets and nowspap t artic

and addressed memorials in Congress
advocating a colonization of Cieon,
and Hiicceeded in exciting much in

writings and speeches of Kelley wan
Nathaniel J. Weyth of Cambridge,
Mush., who dispatched a vessel loaded
with merchandise around the Horn,

Oregon, beginning November. 1H,'I'-.
Among Hull's pupils was Konald A.

Attention has already been called
to t he line aii'ay of cups to be a.winl
ed for apple exhibits at the next an
nual meeting of the Oregon llorticul
tiiral Society to bo held In 1'oilland
In January. Hood Kiver has already
announced its Intent ion of capful ing
everyone of those cnpH. Wo often
see and hear the charge that the pen
pie of l'oiilaud seem to think Hood
Kiver 1h the only place in Oregon that
raiscH good apples. If the apple rais
ers of other poi lions ot the state do
not contest for the honors ut the
coming meeting, Hood Kiver's pies
tlge in I'orllaiiil and abroad as a
raiser of Hue apples will be more
llrmly established than ever. If you
want to convince people Hint Hood
Elver is not the only place in Oregon
that raises fancy apples it. is well to
remember that M issourlaiiri are num
erous in I his county.
A few enterprising fruit growers are
working hard lo make the coining
meeting of the State Horticultural
Society a success. The ell'oits of these
men should bo met with co-operation
in all pails of the state. It. is siguill
cant I hat the one locality which can
be depended upon to send u large del
ligation to Hie meetings of the Society
is Hood Kiver. The fruit growers of
this favored valley realize that the
successful fruit grower owes some
thing to his iiidiisfiy as well as to
himself, and that ho can promote the
interests of hoi h by attending meet
ings of hurl it it It 1 1 I'm 1 sncielies and
