ABOUT OUR APPLES
We are tii receipt of the following
communication from the Portland
Chamber of Commerce which will
probably be of interest to our readers:
Provideuee, R. I., Feb. 7, 100C.
Ji. u. uoiron,- Manager, - .
310 Chamber of Commerce
. My dear Coltoa : 1 take, this first
opportunity since receiving your let
ter to thank yon for t tie kind expres
sions contained therein.
I have done a good deal of booming
for the Hood River apples, and I hope
some day to convince my friends here
In .Little Knody that Oregon pro
duoes the finest fruit in the worl-. 1
would not have believed it myself had
I not sampled the same at the Port-

"Stop Your Paper."
Almost all newspapers have had ex
perience with the subscriber that takes
offense at something published in its
columns, and commands you to
"stop the paper," but the following
from tne Spokane Outburst Is unusu
ally good :
"One day a susbcriber met Col.
Partiok Jlonry Winston, editor of
Wisuton's Weekly, ou the street, and,
with sorrow in his voics and tears in
his eyes iuforined him that be must
withdraw his munificent support of ?2
per year, owing to an article wnlcb
met with his disapproval. 'Do you
see that man across the street?' asked
the colonel. 'Yes,' came the reply.
'Well, when you quit he'll subscribe.
You may go to h , eab !'."'
The Seattle Republican thinks.
however, it has more than its share of
such commands. A colored subscriber
wants bis paper stopped because "it
has nothing iu it." A white subscrib
er orders bis paper discontinued be
cause "it has too much colored news
in it." So, between the two, the fi
nancier has the devil's own time to
keep things going. Exchange.
Against the Use of Profanity.
"Within a very few years a man who
uses profane language in any place or
under any circumstances, will be
looked upon as a back number and au
outcast from good (society, " said W.
R. Lett, secretary of the Anti-Profanity
Society of the World, who ar
rived in the city this afternoon from
For the past tw o years this sooiety
whose mission is to discourage the use
of evil and piofuneluugiiag , has made
wonderful progress in all parts of the
Northwest and now has active socie
ties in most of the largor cities where
profanity in all its forms is frowned
down and discouraged.
The i Ihu of the society is to organ
ize a small club iu each city aud then
begin a perpiste t campaign asgainst
profanity, especially iu public places
and iu the presence-of, women and
in many of the leading cities hotel
keepers, restaurant keepers, theatre
managers, street car companies and
others have agreed to post noticea in
their places that profane language will
not be allowed.
It has home excellent results and in
places whore profanity was the rule it
is now the very rare exception. A
society will be started in this city and
a persistent campaign started against
the use of profane language in publio
places and ou the streets.
"1 have beard more profanity in
the presence of women and children
on the streets of Pendleton than in
any city I have ever visited," said
Mr. Lott this afternoon. "I heard
loafers in front of saloons use the most
unrepeatable stulf this morning while
a crowd of young girls was passing
directly in front of the place, aud no
one seemed to pay liny attention to it,
while it horrilled me to think of this
teriible condition. '
In St. Lonis a city ordinance was
recently parsed prohibiting the use of
profanity on the streets and one po
liceman was arrested the first day the
order went into ett'eot..
Mr. Lett says that nine men out of
ten who use profane language admit
that it is silly aud nonsensical and
utterly useless, aud most of tbera are
ashamed of it when their attention is
culled to it. East Oregouiau. .
The IUk Rabbit Hunt.
The big rabbit hunt at Blalock Is;
land is thus. described by the Fast Or
None but thoso versed in the use of
a shotgun were allowed in the ranks
as the danger from inexperience aud
carelessness was too great. It was fi
nally narrowed down to about 60 men,
and these were divided into three
companies, commanded by J. II. Pe
digo of Walla Wallu, captain of Co. A ;
James B. Blulock of Arlington, cap
tain of Co. li; aud Judd Fish of The
Dulles, captain of Co. C.
These 60 men were turther subdivid
ed into squads of about seven each,
to insure a better aud more thorough
organization aud one which could be
more easily handled.
The Pendletou boys were command
ed by C. J. Ferguson. F. F. Hume
son of Weston acted as another lieu
tenant of Co. C.
Rules aud regulations were adopted
governing the actions of those on the
tiring line and all were obliged to
agree to obey their officers before the
Two mounted Hold marshals direct
ed the course of the hunt and Dr. N.
O. Blalock with his amDulance corps
of two nurses aud emergency cases fol
lowed in a wagon. Three other wag
ons followed the line to pick up the
dead rabbits, while those not ou the
firing line came uloug in the rear.
After deploying' the. line of -skirmishers
with a distance of about 30
feet betweeu each man, the word was
given to advance aud commence, firing.
At Hrst the occasional crack of the
tingle gun was heard, but this soon
swelled ii.to a roar as the rabbits
commenced to appear.
"Don't get up iu front of the line;
keep back!" was at first theory of the
busy officers as they endeavored to
restrain their now excited huntsmen.
Commands not found in any manual
of arms, such as "Here, you fellow
with the blue pants; don't shoot In
any direction but straight ahead I"
and "Say you, with the pump gun;
keep that muzzle elevated and not
pointing along the fine!" , These and
i milar orders were shouted intermit
e ntly and as a result of this work on
be part of the chosen officers not an
accident was reported.
The island was covered thoroughly
and hundrelsof rabbits were gathered
into the Rugous.
One lone coyote was routed and
soon finished by a volley from a dozen
or more guns that were instantly
trained on him.
After covering the went half of the
island all returned to the house where
the barbecue was spread and enjoyed
by the hungry soldiers who had low
ered about eight miles since break
fast. After dinner the east half of the is
land was covered in the same careful
manner and by evening, tired aud
hungry hunters were scattered around
the Island bouse dUcussiug the events
of the day while waiting for their
As the hour of departure arrived
the "Island Queen" gathered aboard
the satisfied and weary huntsmen and
deposited them at the siding at Coyote
to await the train.
Three cheers were given for Dr. N.
O. Blalock and bis assistants before
the crowd broke up, in an effort to
express tbo gratitude felt by those
WILL GO INTO TRUCK
J. II. Koberg, who has been engaged
in the dairying business for a time,
has decided to go out of that busi
ness and take up truck farming. Mr.
Koberg has a number of aores of very
fine bottom land in a oove on bis
Elace adjacent to the river, and it is
is Intention to irrigate it and set
out six acres in asparagus, besides
several acres of celery, melons, etc.
A reservoir will be constructed
near the river, from which a trench
will be dug, all.iwing the water to run
into it. . The laud to be used for this
purpose is low enough so as to allow
the water to run into the reservoir
by gravity. From the reservoir wate'
will be pumped ou to his truck garden
with the use of a gasoline engine and
ceutrifugal pump as it is needed. The
pump will have a capacity equal to 10
inches and the outfit will very mate
rially lesseu the oost of irrigating the
land iu any other way. -
The lau I is well adapted for this
purpose, being protected and the soil
rich. As there is a bout landing on
Mr. Koberg 's place, he will have no
difficulty in marketiug bis croduce
andean ship it out as desindeach
day. The new etatiou at Biugen will
be locatod almost opposite Mr. Ko
berg's place, and will furnish him
with another shipping point.

If La Grande could only be tt.oi
ougbly consecrated to the Hood I. her
spirit! We do need a revivul nlong

Grande aud Grande Ronde valley was
as enthusiastic aud us loyal to this

year. Hood River is everlastingly at
it, in season aud out of season. They
are regular perennials. We admire
their spirit. It is the spirit that
builds homes aud industries. If Hood

might do. We take off our bits to

McEWEN A KOSKEY,
129 Front street. Portland, Ore,
Many a man sees his wife band and
tng at burdens that strain the back and
the heart alike, without any Idea of th
outrage. Children follow In too quick
succession to allow the mother time to
recuperate. The womanly organs become
displaced, there a re debilUMInfr, disagree
able drains, with the added pain ot In
flamed or ulceratd parts. In this condi
tion the woman bravely tries to carry her
household load, afraid to take the rest
she needs lest a meal will be late. No
wonder she is pale, weak, wretched, surly
of temper and snappish of tongue. She
would be false to nature If she were any
thing else. No persons need help so much
as the class of whom this woman is the
type. And for such women no help Is so
sure, so wonderful, as that given by Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription. It re
stores all the womanly organs to perfoct
health. It establishes regularity In their
functions. It restores the strained and
shattered nervous system. It clears up
the complexion, rounds out the form and
makes life a dally happiness. "Favorite
Prescription contains no alcohol or
whisky. It Is the best medicine for
women. Nothing can be "just as good"
as the best Tell the dealer so If he offers
