R. P. Loom la, of the firm of K. P.
Lomla & Co., large wholenale fruit
dealer! end oold utoraKO warehouse
owners, of New Yorlr city, has heen at
Hood Kiver lor eeveral daya looking
for oouHignmeuU of apples for
bia Arm. Mr. Loomis baa traveled
extensively In the western apple nro
duotng country since leaving New
York and reports that the large Hpile
crop wbloh it expected from all nti
tina of the country this year has riot
been exaggerated. The fruit be says
la not only plentiful but of a vury
One quality. On this booouii1 lie
thinks that prloes for fanoy fruit wiJl
be somewhat lower this year than
they were last. At Yakima, where he
spent several days be was told that
the enormous acreage of &:i,000 trees
had been planted thero this seiiHon.
Jle bas also visited Wenatohoe, Pas
co, and the Toppendlsh country.
lie says, however, that nowhore
that be bas been bas be seen such ev
idences of careful cultivation and line
appearing orchards as at Hood lilver.
Mr. Lorn la thinks that some varieties
of apples grown elsewhore are fully
the equal, if not the superior, of
those grown here, but that for Now
towns and Spltzenbergs we have the
world beaten. He is particularly en
thusiastic over the flue paok sent out
from Hood Kiver and the good keep
ing qualities and when asked how
fanoy eastern fruit compared with
that of the west said that there win
no comparison between the box stock
of the wet and the barrfl stook of
the east with the exception of some
Northern Bples, grown in Vermont
wbloh bis firm have disposed of for
as high as f U a burrel.
While driving over the valley h
visited the orchard of O. h. Vumior
bllt and there saw growing the Wint.tr
lianana which be thinks may develop
Into a very fancy apple at a very fan
cy price If its flelioate shipping quali
ties oan be overcome and expeoU to
baudle a few of them during the coin
ing winter. Price, Mr. Loomis says,
for the bost, lsno object, as anything
that Is particularly choice can always
be depended ou to make a market fur
itself. Most varieties of apples lie
thinks will be bought bite this year
and does not look for many purcluihus
until alter the orop is picked as buy
ers are holding olf on account of the
lie was delighted with the line
weather here after being in the Yaki
ma oountry and said that the climate
was as tine as any be bad seen in the
west. Mr. Loomis has been coming
to Hood River in the interest of Ips
lirm for several years and bas liooouie
very muoh interested in the develop
ment of the oity and valley.
Dcllcliius Food From Sta Kelp.
Professors Magnuson and Frye of
the state university have discovered
and are patenting a prooess by which
ordinary kelp, which is so abundant
in the waters of Puget Hound, is
transformed iuto a delicious food.
Frye is now in Washington perfecting
the patents. Prof. Magnuson, who
was in lielliugham oue day lust week,
Informed a Kevellle reporter that ar
rangements are being perfected tor the
equipment of a plaut and the prepara
tion of the new food products on a
large scale. The sample be bad with
him somewhat resembled candied cit
ron, but was superior in tlavor mid
Kelp is a palatable and thoroughly
olean food, as is all vegetable mutter
ooming from the sea, owing to the
cleansing and purifying qualities of
sea water. The kelp of Puget Sound,
and in fact of the entire Paoillo coast,
differs from that ot the Atlantic in
that It Is free from iodine and other
The possibilities of this new indus
try will be better appreciated when it
is known that ovei HiKJ tons of citron
peel are used aunually in the United
States, and that the kelp can be put
up in many different forms and as
superior substitutes tor high priced
jama, jellies, marmalades, etc., that
tickle the palates ami touch the
purses of fastidious epicures. It is
probable that hellinghum will be giv

Arrangements for Transfer of Money.
The banks of the community are to
many people merely places in which
to deposit surplus money. They do
not always appreciate that banking is
a wonderful system, grown out ot the
experience of years, without which
this busy ltttU city would be relegat
ed to the rank of a oountry cross
road. They do not realize that the
personality of our bankers aud the
enterprise of our banks are worth
even more to the growth and prosperi
ty of the place than acquisition ol
new industries for which the town is
very propeily striving.
It is characteristic of our local
banks that anticipating the needs of
our citizens, who have been Investing
in Manitoba and other provinces ol'
Western Canada, they huve already
arranged for the necessary remittanc
es of money by draft. Few will rea
lize the amount of correspondence
this has entailed ; but all who have
caught the investment lever will grout
ly appreciate the service,
To have made it possible for our
citizens to send any amount ot mon
ey to be paid Immediately by any
bank In Alhortn, Manitoba or Sas
katchewan, without question and
without exchange charges on the Ca
nadian side, is certainly a stroke ot
enterprise which adds to the services
the bunks are continually giving the
As a matter of fact, although it is
not generally known, our banks are
in a position to send money to all for
eign countries at less cost than other
iiguiioiiis. In this and other more im
portant respects the local banks are
gradually Improving their facilities
and their service, and deserve the
patronage ami support of local peo
ple. Their condition speaks louder
than words of the general prosper ity
of this favored section.
Acute attacks of colic and diarrhoea

Apples Llrht In Western Colorado!
The crop will be light in all the
western Colorado districts. In our
opinion from CO to 75 per cent of a
full crop. Our shipments should Lave
been SXw to l.oou cars, but we now
estimate COO curs. Karly varieties are
now moving iu cariots, but in a very
limited way. Trausparents will be
out by August 0, but we will then
have biichuss, and a little later
Wealthy; hut only in a limited sup

fine, and cuing to tne Jigtit crop
should be larger than usual; an I re
