Warrior of Tomorrow.

'Who seems so thin and wan.
If life be measured by a span,
Then his is nearly gone.
That means the button on his breast
Which he still wears with pride ?"
My child, it speaks of Round Top s crest)
Of Shiloh's battle tide.
It seems to speak of stubborn fight,
Bivouac and picket lone,
Then in the watches of the night
Te heard the nation's moan.
"It seems to tell of dire retreat
In winter's mud and rain,
Of grim advance in summer's beat
To seek the battle plain.
"WIIAT MEANS THH MJTTON ON HIS
"It means that in his day of youth
That old gray man was true,
Arid in the cause of Cod and truth
He wore the nation's blue.
"With steadfast soul that naught could tama
At Gettysburg he stood,
Or faced the charge's front of flame
In Chickamauga's wood.
"Before his weapon's deadly might-
Oppression ceased to be
He crushed secession in the fight
And saved our liberty."
Oh, comrades, clasp your hands around"
To each we will be true '
Till the last two are under ground
, Oi all who wore the blue.

CtaMTle a Light Crop. 1
The deadly work of Jack Frost dur
ing the month of March Is very much
in evidence in tba cherry orchards,
where, in some Instances, tha fruit,
half formed, continues to fall. From
Commissioner Weber it is learned
that the yield will be but thirty-live
per cent, due to the fact that thia
fruit was much further advanced when
the frost came than other fruits.
It Is, however, the opinion of the
commissioner that peaches will not be
so heavy as waa at ilrsc expected,, per
baps but fifty per cent.
All other fruits will be a full crop,
especially apricots. It has, in the
past, been generally oonceded that
apricots were a tender fruit, not able
to withstand the cold weather. Ex
perience is teaching that, on the con
trary, they are hardier than peaches,
and this year Is proving it more con
clusively. Approaching any of the
orohards containing apricots it is no
ticed that these trees are the stal tart
ones and are in evidence before auy
of the others are seen.
The present cool weatbei Is ideal for
fruit raising, allowing it to develop
perfectly. No discouraging reports
are coming in from interior points
and the crop promises to be very
Apples will be a fine crop, and no
section of the country is better suited
to apple raising than is that tiibutary
to The Dalles, if growers will heed
rules, the observance of whloh makes
for perfect fruit. Mr. Weber is of the
opiuiua that better Yellow Newtown
Pippins oannot be raised anywhere
on the coast than within a fadlus of
ten or fifteen miles of The Dalles. All
they need Is proper care. It is with
much satisfaction that he observe
growers are spraying more generally
and is positive tho effect will be pro
nounced in this year's crop.-Chronicle.
