THE ROCK CIUMIER.
The recent defeat of the project to
buy ii rock crnshor should not be
looked upon as final in thin matter.
.The milking aud maintaining of good
; road a in the valley is one of the moat
importiint exigencies that now con
front the residents of this community.
: 4 To maks good roads requires a solid
foundation and there in nothing that
let better for this purpose, as has been
demonstrated wherever it has been
used, tliuu crushed rock. While the
expense of purchasing a crusher may
seem lurge in comparison with the
present methods of making roads, in
the end it is moat economical. For
the foundation onoe made a highway
of thia kind requires very little work
to keep it in good condition and lust
for all time.
, The purpose of the gentlemen who
agitated the question of pu'chaaing a
rock crueller In District No. 3 was not
to saddle the entire coat of the ap
paratus oo the tapayers of that dis
trict, as many of its residents sup
posed, but simply to make a start
toward purohaeing it, and then have
the other district in - the valley pay
their proportion toward its expense
for the privilege of having the use of
it. , Many of the resident in the oth
er sections of the valley have been
heard to express themselves as in fav
or of tbla plan, and there ia no doubt
, but that a machine of this character
will be purchased in the near future.
Good roads bore would mean much
for both town and country. The beu
. eflt to those living here already is
! easily discornable. To the stranger'
coming here lo Invest his money it
1 Would prove one of the strot gest
argumeut I that any community can
' put forth.
It ia to lie hoped, therefore, that
, whatever opposition thore is to this
, project will he held in aheyanoo, and
: that a plan will bo evolved which will
result in the purchase of a rock crush
er for the town and valley before the
. prewout year has run lta course.

allow customers to take goods from
their places of business without the
slightest uudoratuudiug as to when
they are to tie paid for. The Oregon
Tradesman publishes a pertinent edi
torlul on this fact and says;
"Iu their anxiety to guiu trade, too
many merchauts have impressed cus
turners with the idea that the prlnel
pal thing to do is to take the good
and that paying for them is a second
ary matter altogether. Thia is not
the case. The customer should no
carry away an impression that he rati
pay whou he gets ready, lu the dun
. aud undefined future. You need not
tell bltn to his face, but have it post
ed in your store, or printed on your
cheeks, or somewhere or lu someway

a day for payment aud that you ex

We publish below two addresses
that were delivered at the convention
of the Northwestern Fruit Orowrs at
La Grande today by K II. Sbepard
and J. L. Carter. Mr. Shepard's ad
dress is entitled "Hood Klver Meth
ods," and Mr. Carter spoke on
"Spraying." lioth these subjects will
be interesting to fruit growers, both
far aud near, aud we tegret that we
were not able to obtain the addressee
to be made by E. L. Smith and A. I.
Mason in time for this issue.
The addresses are as follows:
Hood River Methods.
By E. II. Shepard.
At our last convention in Iioise, I
heard two Idaho fruit growers discus
sing Hood Kiver. One said to the
other "Hood Kiver grows fine fruit,
but it is not because their apples are
better than ours that they g t such
wonderful fancy prices, but Ucauae
they are such d u blowers."
One of our growers called me up on
the phone and asked the title of my
address, and 1 replied, "Blasts of hot
air from Hood River, the valley that
grows the finest Spitzeubergs and
Newtowns grown anywhere ou God's
green earth aud sells them for the
1 will not waste time in the usual
peroration full of platitudes about not
being able to make a speech or having
the time to prepare one, for a Hood
River iiihu is "semper paratua" to
talk, but merely aak your indulgence
if I seemingly epart occasionally
from the subject to blow about Hood
River, for that Is one of the methods
that assisted in making Hood Rivei
famous. And whou 1 do 1 will grant
you the privilege of tailing all I say
"cum gratia saiis. "
1 will now endeavor to explain in a
systematic way the Methods employed
that have beeu conducive to securing
for Hood River such fancy prices as
12. 10 to $2.50 for Newtowns and 12. fit)
to $3.00 for Spitzeubergs, f o. b., and
the only grand prize given by the St.
Louis exposition to a single county
in the United States for green fruit.
One of the fundamental principle
of the rapid progress of America has
beeu specialism, and it is au old law
of political economy that not only the
Individual but the locality aud the
community should devote Its time to
a specialty, if it expects to achieve
the greatest success either in the 0
nancial world of wealth, or in the more
laudable aud crowning glory of fame
Hood- River fruit growers are spe.
ciallsts to the extreme limit. We
grow practically nothing but fruit, and
of that but two kinds, apples and
strawberries; the apples are practi
cally limited to two varieties New-
towns and SpiUonberga and the
strawberries to one Clark's Seedling,
1 beg of you, gentlemen, not to
expect too much iu the way of iulor
miitiou ou the subject of methods, for
we aie but mortals and much more of
our success is due to the supreme gift
of soli and climate than to our meth
ods. No matter how high class the
workmanship may be you "oauuot
make a silk purse out of a sow's ear."
We had the good luck to discover the
opportunity God gave us, aud the en
ergy, perseverance and progressiveueas
to accomplish the rest. The Lord fa
vored Hood River with a soil full of
potash, phosphates and other minerals
necessary to produce nign quality
fruit of good size, tine color, excel
lency of flavor and No. 1 shipping
qualities; au ideal climate for perfect
development warm days and cool
nights; tho ever shining sun kissing
our fruit by day, giving it color, while
Mt. Hood aud Mt. Adams, 11,000 feet
high with ever covered snow capped
peaks, cool our atmosphere it uight.
I will now tell you as best 1 can how
we have done our part, liy investiga
tion some year ago we ascertained
that Spitzeubergs aud Newtowns were
not only high quality fruit, but alwayt
In demand. We fouud by experiment
that they grow to petfectiou in Hood
Klver soil and climate, we otiserv id
that these two varieties could be
grown successfully in few districts
and these comparatively small, We
then decided to plant an I grow them,
aud have been continuing to do so
The point I wish to bring out here
for the benefit of every one is that
each Individual, each locality, is par
ticularly adapted to some one thing,
lo do that one thing well and better
than any one else will surely bring suc
cess and a rich harvest. To illus
trate, Los Angeles aud vicinity is
famous for oranges aud lemons; Fres
no for grapes; Vacavills for apricots,
.Sacramento River for peaches, in Col-
orudo.Urand Junction aud Panma are
celebrated for apples, Rocky Ford for
cantaloupes, Parts of Misslouri beat
the world on our old friend. Hen
Mavis, anil, by the way, dou't forget
it is a grand state and supplies the
government with more aud better
mules than any other slate iu the Un
ion. These mules beat the world for
kickers. 1 know this because a few of
them crossed the plains aud stopped
off at Hood River and went Into
growing fruit, aud let me tell you,
gentlemen, that a Missouri mule fruit
grower will lie awake all uight to
thiuk up something to kick about to
the manager of a fruit union.
Hut to returu to our subject. I
would say, do as Hood River and
other dtatiicts have doue find out
what you can grow to perfect iou loi
which there is a good demand, and
give it every care and attention.
Nurse it eat with it, sleep with It.
We began at the begiuuiug by buying
the best trees, the price being no ob
ject. We buy them of reliable nor
aerymen whom we kuow select their
scions from parent trees known to be
good bearers and producing fruit ot
tine color aud excellent quality.

A Blx-year-old sou of Ell Robinson,

Michael Ansrrlo's Vow. . 1
The story is told, but with no solid
foundation, that Itaphael had under
taken to decorate the walls of the man
sion of Cardinal Farnesina, on the
banks of the Tiber, on the condition
that no one should see his work until
it waa completed. Michael Angelo
took an oath that he would atop
this work. Finding his opportunity
when the artist came late to work and
disguised ns a seller of cakes and wine,
he distracted the attention of those
round the scaffold that was prepared
by offering to them his warea, and, as-
cending, he drew upon the wall a gi
gantic head of Jupiter and hurriedly
left the building, his vow thus accom-
pllshed. "When Raphael presently came
he instantly exclaimed ou seeing the
sketch, "Michael Angelo!" and left the
palace never to return.
Marriage of the'Adriatlc.
"The marriage of the Adriatic" was
instituted In commemoration of a na
val victory won by Sebastian Zinvl,
doge of Venice, over Otto, son of Fred
erick BarbaroRsa, 1174. In consequence
of this victory Pope Alexander III.,
who hud been driven to take refuge in
Venice, gave to the doge the sovereign
ty of the sea, and every year the doge
used to go iu grand procession In his
state barge nud throw a gold ring into
the Adriatic, saying, "With this riug I
thee wed." Flowers were then thrown
iuto the sea, and the procession re
turned. The sentence delivered by the
doge on the occasion was literally,
"Despousauius te mare nostrum lu sig
nuui verl perpetuique domiul."
Ezeklel'g reed was nearly eleven feet;
a cubit was nearly twenty-two inches;
a baud's breadth is equal to three aud
five-eighths inches; a finger's breadth
is equal to a little less than an inch; a
shekel of silver was about 2s.. 8d.; a
shekel of gold wag 2; a talent of sil
ver was 400; a talent of gold was
nearly 6,000; a piece of silver, or a
