along very noil with my teacher.
But tuking al' into consideration, I
am delighted with the deal and wish
I could get all my clothe as easy as

I am going to Chicago to see you,
and maybe you will give me a job. I
like your salesman, Mr. Claybaugh,
very much, too, and the way I got
next to him would make a Pinkerton
man turn green with envy. You see
1 am shining shoes at the Mount
Hood Hotel, one of the most popular
resorts on the Pacific coast, where all
first class people stop. When Mr.
Claybaugh got into the chair to have
his shoes shiiied, I could see he was
no cheap guy, so I said, "Are you
from Kderlieimer, Stein & Co. " and
he smilod and said "Yes," and then
gave me an order for the new suit,
according to agreement.
Well, 1 guess I will close by wishing
you aJl a happy Iow rear.
Very truly yours

Some Principle of drafting.
The first thing to be cotisid red by
the ft'ti it grower or nurseryman who
wishes to propagate new stock or
ohaiigo old ones by the grafting pro
cess is, will such und suoh trees or
shrubs unite their wood cells closely
and strongly so as to make a new and
Never, to my knowledge, have trees
of different families been made to
unite their woods sufficiently to make
a lasting uniou. Many attempts have
succeeded fur enough only to form an
unstable graft that would break apart
sooner or later and generally before
the end of a year.
Again, it is often quite impractica
ble to obtain a good union between
members of the same family. The
rose family, to which most of our wes
tern fruits bt long, is divided into sub
families or tribes, and it is found un
natural for the members of one tribe
to graft with another tribe or sub
family. For intsunce, the apple and
pear which belong to one tribe of the
rose family, will not unite with the
plum, pouch or cherry, which bolong
to another tribe or tribes of the rose
family, in other words, you cannot
graft successfully the stone fruits with
the pome fruits. It is still more im
practicable ti graft any of these fruits
upon the most of our common forest
trees, which bel :ig to widely differ
ent families. The successful propaga
tor goes still further than this, in that
he Duds it to his interests to study
the common likes and dislikes for
each other among the various em
bers of the same family. For instance,
the peach and plum are very commou
ly gra ted or budded back and forth
upou each other. There are certain
varieties ot those fruits, however,
that are found to be better adapted
to each other than another, and it is
for the uurserymau or horticulturalist
to discover these varieties that
"work" best together.
The peach is a desirable and appro
priate stock for certain varieties of
the p urn, but there are certain varie
ties that do not form a perfect and
Listing union with the peach. I re
member at the time the Hawkeye
plum was first introduced of buying
about ten of the trees at ?1 each.
They wero budded on the peach and
wore tl no, thrifty trees as come from
the hands of the nurseryman. I set
them out in the orchard, expecting
quick and desirable returns frum
them. They had stood hardly two
years in the orchard before the; be
gan to show signs of weakness they
began to look runty. 1 dug them
out, one by one, and found a lack of
cougeuiality between the top and the
root. They wero like some people we
hear so olteu about perhaps know
some of them who get married on
sight, and after a few mouths, or at
most a few years, they find a remedy
for their uncongenial alliance in the
The piactice that prevails to quite
an extent among our nurserymen of
propagating these uncongenial varie
ties upon each other is done for the
mere sake nf gain, or In other words,
the trees, like Hodge's razors, "are
mad ti sell. " And this reminds me,
too, that the man or woman who mar
ries for the sake of sordid gain or po
sition meets a fate similar to these
tame razors. L. O. Williams.
The Halky Hers-.
Nine limes out of ten a bulxy horse
is tho result of a balky driver. Many
high strung and nervous horses are
completely ruined by bad manage

them. If the attention of a balking
horse ciu be diverted, half of the trou
ble U orer, yet bow few men will re
fraiu from beating him at such times.
When a horse is inclined to be
balky he should be put in charge of

many ways of diverting a horse's at

TranHplantlns Trees. .
Mtofthe trees that are trpns

Soma are shipped many hundred

or nearby nnrseries. in either case
upon receipt of the trees the buyer
should see that the roots are in a
moist condition and not left to dry
out, says Prof. E. E. Little in "Wal
lace's Farmer. " If tbe weather con
ditions are unfavorable for planting,
or work so pressing that tbey cannot
be planted upon arrival, tbey should
be left in the bundle, should be well
packed aud kept in a cool cellar, or
tboy can be takeu from the handle

In transplanting great eare should
be exercised not to disturb the natur
al condition of the plant. Where tbe
root system has been partly destroyed
by the operation tbe plant baa been
checked in its natural growth. Tbe
ouly way to overcome this injury is
to plant with such care that tbe con
ditions surrounding it are favorable
for restoring its vitality. Tbe older
tbe tree the greater check it receives.
To aid the roots in getting a new
start it la a good plan t cut back tbe
branches one third to one-half their
length. A main central stem should
always be left. If any of tbe roots
are torn or mangled, cut off thia por
tion, leaving the roots strong and
Before tbe plants are taken np for

WESTERN FRUIT FOR
KINGS AND EMPERORS
Tbe following article taken from the
Yakima Kepublio will prove interest
ing reading for Hood River apple
"Fifty boxes of Yakima apples were
furnished to J. J. Hill to be need by
Dim aa presents to some of tbe crown
ed heads of Europe and dignitaries
or America, these apples were fur
nished by tbe Yakima growers, but
none of tbe growers knew where tbey
were going to be used. About half
the number were sent out by Agent
Meeka to Mr. Hill aud the other half
were shipped by the Northern Pacific
tbe apples Mr. Hill will give to his
intimate friends in the East. One
box will go to President Roosevelt
and tbe rest of them will be sent to
King Edward, King Wilbelm, tbe czar
and the rulers .f other countries. Tbe
apples are tbe best that were grown iu
tbe Yakima valley last year and fancy
prices were paid for them. Such a rec
ognition of tbe superior quality of
Yakima over other apple growing dis
tricts of America ia something for the
people here to be proud ot. "
If the palates and eye ot King Ed
ward, Emperor William and the Czar
should be pleased with the apples sent
them by M. Hill, we should like to
have tbem sample some of the Hood
River product. We are inolined to
think that King Edward would for
once foget to pose, tbe bellicose Ger
man emperor leave off twirling his
warlike mustache, and tbe Czar for
get his troubles, at the sight of fruit
that has no peer anywhere.
Indigestion is easily overcome by the
use of Kodol Dyspepsia Cure, because
this remedy digests w hat you eat and
gives the stomach a rest allows it to

Kodol relieves Indigestion, Belching of

and enables the digestiveorgans to trans
form all foods into the kind of rich red
blood that makes health and strength.
