HARR1MAN LINES TO
11 is evident that the management
"i iue uregon onori line and U. K. &
. propose to make every effort to
Lave its lines aMe to compete with the
norm ubdk road wnen it is finished.
Tus Portland Journal suva that dnlnr.
miued tomHiutain the claim of having
the shortest line from Portlaud to
tne eaKt, Uarriman Iihh met the north
dbiik project of the Hill companies
wiinapum to nuiiii a culolf from
Malad City to Mountain Home, In
Idaho, reducing the Oregon Short
Line by 1.H miles and cutting the run
ning time or tlie Uhicago l'orland spe
cial from 70 hours to 05 hours. Two
surveying parties have beon placed in
the Held, one working from Malad
Ulty and the otbop from liurloy, to
Bud a feiiMlilo route.
Malad Ulty is the present terminus
of the branch running from Ogden
northward along the Malad river. The
proposed line would run nearly due
west from Malad City and intersect
the Twin Falls brunch that swings
siiiitn and west from tne present main
line at Miunidoka, idabo, and follows
the Snake river westward through a
ricn country tbat is becoming the cen
ter of a large and growing irrigated
The proposed cut off, joining the
Twin Falls line at Hurley, would use
the same track west to Twin Falls, the
terminus, and then continue along the
Snake river and connect with the
? resent main line at Mountain Home,
'be route is said to afford easy grades
11 nd an almost direct line between Og
den and Mountain home.
8200 a Month fur Spencer's Pilot.
Unemployed river captains and pi
lots are scarce so that great die Hi ulty
is experienced iu securing officers to
command the various craft says the
Journal, liecause of the unprecedent
ed demand for their services, the men
who can be prevailed upou to accept
new positions do so only when prom
ised large salaries. The Charles K.
Spencer would have been placed in
aommssiou the first of the week had
it not been for the scarcity of lioeused
Captain Kiggs,' who was employed
yesterday to go out as master on the
Spencer, will receive WOO a month.
John Zumalt, who will be pilot on the
steamer, will receive the same salary.
It in said that uo other river captain
has been paid more than 8125 a month.
They get free board and lodging.
If more men are not soon fitted to
All positions as musters und pilots on
the Willamette and Columbia rivers,
it is said, there is every likelihood
that the wages will be still higher.
The steamer Telephone aoou will be
ready for service and a captain and
pilot will be needed for her. As there
are uo idle licensed officers in the
city, it is supposed that she will be
obliged to remain idle much longer
th:in the owuers anticipate. More
over, it is contended that, uot every
captain is qualified to take charge of
a steamer which is placed ou the up
per Columbia route.
More Railroad Ne-g
O. R. & N. surveyors were on the
Deschutes river west of Grass Valley
during the week, saya the Grass Val
ley Journal. The have surveyed ou
the west side of the river to near the
free bridge, and then oroesed to the
east side. Srveyors being in the field
is always followed by many reports,
one being that they will connect with
the Columbia Southern survey made
last summer from Sbaniko out south,
at a point southwest of Antelope; tbat
the Columbia Southern to avoid the
heavy grade south of Sbaniko, will
leave that city to one side, running
within a mile or two of Antelope and
connecting with the Deschutes survey.
This is one of many reports and the
render can form bis own' conclusion.
Select lire' dors for Rest Result.
Thtit the whole Hock general may be
a high average physically, as well as a
gre.it lining strain, a bird undersized
or weak (in not be expeoted to bring
forth oife.ring thut would be r roliiio
enough. Selections in bird life applies
us well us it does in plaut life. The
study of the quail shows that the
Ktrongo.-t mail quails captivates the hen
quails away from his weaker brothers
of the sumo flock thereby proving that
iu breeding in bird life seems to do no
particular barm provided the strong
est and best birds are selcetod to breed
In about lSf0, Darwin, the great
natnraliht, fmind by selecting for
breeders pigeons from parents of large
breasts that after a few generations
of selecting them in that way he pro
duced a strain of pigeons with im
mense breitsts and thus found that he
could bring out any characteristic tbat
was de-tired iu bird life. I was prob
ably the Hrst in the Northwest to ex
periment with breeding pigeons for
protUable squab raising, but hundreds
have started since, iu the squab busi
ness and could not make it pay and
there are many now that would be
glad, to dispose of their plauts for
what they could get. I soon found
that this was the natural and ideal
climate for the Homing pigeon. The
longer they became acclimated here,
the more proliHc the strain becomes if
care is taken in always (electing
breeders from the strongest, biggest
and most prolific parents. By pursu
ing this course of careful selection for
the past several years, we now have
all our pigeons at such a high stan
dard of breeding, producing squabs
weighing 10 lbs. per dozen average
and more, when only three weeks old
and each pair of breeders will average
ten pair of squabs per year. Those
who have had our squabs gladly pay
us from 50 cents to il per dozen above
market price at Seattle.
As with the pigeons, so it is with
chickens that our future success or
failure depends upon the way we
select our breeders. By this method
of breeding up, we are now rewarded
with a strain of squabs breeders which
pay us handsomely in 3 weeks old
squabs for the market and we cannot
begin to supply the demand for such
squabs. Knowing the fact that pro
ducing good birds of any kind creates
a greater demand, no one would have
a chance to breed any kind of a bird
from poor unprofitable parents if I
could preveut It.-H. B. Orr, Rich

Can Sot Deceive Dealers.
"It has beta den osutrated'that flrts-
ciaia apples can be raised in this val
ley. Car loads of Willamette valley
appres nave been packed and shipped
as me simon-pure Hood Kiver article.
and do kiok reigetered, except from
our good Hood River brethren, who
indulge the pardonable oonoeit that
good apples don t grow outside of
Uood Kiver valley."
The above was taken from an article
written by II. C. Atwell for the Forest
Grove Times, who probably refers to
an attempt by a firm of apple buyers
to market seven cars of Willamette
valley apples as Hood River fruit.
inree cars or tne consignment were
shipped to New York and on their ar
rival the firm received a lettei asking
how it came that such apples had been
shipped from Hood River, and saying
that tbey would have a cieat deal of
difficulty in disposing of them. The
other four cars were put in cold stor
age In Portland and worked off on the
market there at inferior prices.
A good many attempts bare been
made to deoeive apple buyers into be
lieving that tbey were getting Hood
River fruit, but few of them have
been successful. Dealers are getting
so that they can tell the genuine Hood
River fruit on sight. Hood River
growers are willing to concede 'bat
good apples do grow outside of Hood
Kiver, but they stoutly maintain that
the best that can be found anywhere
are grown here.
American Apples Abroad.
Extraots from speech of C. C. Elffe,
made at banonet of Pavette Fruit
Packing Co., Deo. 16, 1906.
"When at Bremen the second larg
est harbor in Germany, aaid Mr. Eiff e.
"I attended the auction sales of five
thousand boxes of American apples.
On the morning of the sale I had in
spected them, and found one barrel in
good erudition, the rest contained
many rotten apples, of suon a nature
that it would not pay to keep them to
feed hogs on during tbe winter. When
I estimated that about one fifth of the
contents of those barrels were spoiled,
men in charge of tbe warehouse con
sidered this estimate very low. Con
sider what this means in loss to tbe
growers in money paid for transpor
tation. At one week's sale tbe loss
was 1000 barrels, together with freight,
picking and all attendant charges,
apart from tbe fact that bad all the
apples been good, they would have
brought a muob higher price per bar
rel. Tbe sale was held tbe last day of
October, and there was no reason why
tbe apples should have been iu such
condition, uuloss they were picked up
off the ground. Gem State Rural.
Adopt Big Red Apple Badge.
Tbe smoker by the Cashmere Com
mercial club drew the largest gather
ing in tbe history of the club. Many
guests were present. Speeches were
delivered by Colonel; Houston, Leon
ard Fowler of Weuittehee, Rev. h. N.
B. Anderson and other. A badge,
designed by O. M. Brooks, was unan
imously adopted as tbe official insig
nia of the club, and the secretary
was instructed to order 200 for mem
bers. Tbe badge, or button, is the size of
a half dollar, and shows a red apple on
a background of gold. On the red ap
ple in blaok letters appeals, "Com
mercial Club, Cashmere, Wash.," while
around the golden margin, in white
letters, is tbe legend, "In the vale of
Cashmere, where tbe big apples grow."
Uood Showing for New School.
Mies Lizzie Elder, ou Friday last.
closed the second year of very suc
cessful school wnrk in Rose Hill, dis
trict No. 73. Hoae Hill is a new dis
trict, but that the people take a great
deal of pride, and show a great deal
of enthusiasm in their school is shown
by tbe fact tbat tbey have just closed
an eight months term without a single
tardy mark. On next Monday Miss
h.ltler will commence a spring term in
tbe Mosier Ridge district, where she
taught last spring.

Dr. John Fyfe one of the Editorial Staff
of Thk Eulbctic Mkihcal Rkview says
of Unicorn root (HtlonUu IHoltw) which
is one o( tne chief Ingredients or tne
vorlta Preserlotlon" :
A remedy which Invsrttblr acta as a uter
ine tnvururttor makes for normal ac
tivity of the entire reproductive system."
Be continues in Helonlas we have a medica
ment which more fully answers the above
purposes Item any otlur drug with wAfcfl I am
acquainted. In the treatment of dlsesses pe
culiar to women It Is seldom that a cane Is
seen which does not present some Indication
for this remedial went." Dr. Fyfe further
ssysi "The following" are anions the leadinc
Indications for Helonlas (Unicorn root). Pain

If more or less of the above symptoms
are present, no invalid woman can do
better than take Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription, one of the leading Ingredi
ents of w hich Is Unicorn root, or Helonlas,
and the medical properties of which it
most faithfully represents.
Of Golden Seal root, another prominent
Ingredient of "Favorite Prescription,"
Prof. Finley Elllngwood, M. D., of Ben
nett Medical College, Chicago, says:
"It Is an Important remedy In disorders of
the womb. In all catarrhal conditions
and general anfeeblement. It is useful."
Prof. John M. Scudder, M. D., late of
Cincinnati, says of Golden Seal root :
"In relation to Its general effects on the
system, furs 4s no medicine in we about whu-h
then is sueA general unanimity of opinion. It
Is untrwrtaity regarded as the tonic useful In
all debilitated states."
Prof. Bartholow, M. D.. of Jefferson
Medical College, says of Golden Seal :
"Valuable In uterine hemorrhage, menor
rhagla (flooding) and congestive dysmenor
rhesa (painful menstruation)."
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription faith
