MO MORE HIGH WATER
The fuot tlmt there ha tmet no
high water In the Columbia river now
for two ueuoiiH Iho&uhIuk plonour runi

taie of water iu the river for iiihiij

'"Why," aald one old fellow, "thin
la the it rut time In iW yeara to my
knowledge that the boata have not
beou able to laud for two years In duo
oeaaion rinlit over there, pointing to
epot about 100 yards from the
Mount Hood hotel. "Why," he con

"It'll be the aame way with the

While not taking the poHHimiHtle
view of the pioneer above quutod In
regard to the failure of high water to
come for the paat two soiihoih, many
puraona who nave retdded along the
Columbia for goodly portion of tlutlr
lives, lubatautlate hie atutemout and
aay that they have never known high
water to lull fur two yeara in aminos

attribute the poor Hulling thia aeuon
to the lank ot high water ami any that
the Huh whola along the Columbia

The failure of the water to roncb

of the record of the "Marloon Coun

T.," which whh oiganized during I lie
year 1854, while Oregon wa still a ter
ritory. The fliat step toward the formation
ot that society waa taken on the titli
day of April that year, when a meet
ing of the "farmera of Marion coun
ty was held at the court house "to
perfect arrangements foi the complete
organization of an agricultural associ
ation,." The minutes of the meeting show
that Governor John K. Dsvis was
chosen temporary ohairmau ami J. (1.

of J. C. Ueer, jr., a committee of six
was appointed to draft a constitution
aud by-laws for the "government of
an agricultural association."
No records of the awards aud the

Industry in the vicinity of Chi toll! on,
Mo., which is located on the Santa l'v
line about sixty miles east of Kansas
City, was issued this week by the
freight department of the Santa IV
Railroad company. From figures com
plied by agents of thisj company the
oiop of apples around Carrolltou prom
ises to amount to 51, 500 barrels. Cai
rollton Is on the mail) line of the San
ta Fe miming from Kansas City to
Chicago, which will enable people who
banudle the apples to secure tkvt-rliiss
transportation facilities. Th& Kant
Fe's circular is as follows:
"The preseut outlook points lo the
largest yield and beet quality of en-
ton Mo., has evei known. A peisomil
visit to the orchard disclosed almost
no woricy 'ruit and tournuly a blemish
of any chaiacter. Unless the unex
pected happens, tho percentage of
firsts will run exceedingly high and
the statement of old orchard ists ot
thirty years' experience, that this is
tho II nest crop Carroll county mm
had, will be tully substantiated i lie
growers already have about 50 er
cent of the barrel stock necessary tu
care fur the crop on hand and tl.e.v
intend bringing the supply up to I i.n
full amount required before harvest "

that they would nut go buck into the
