COATING OP CIL
llnkenlliiM's streets are fast hbbwiii
in h (ileHsiiiK anient under (tie cout

laiicey u apply lag to tttom.
At tie nieetiiiK of tbe city trustees
three weeks ago it was decided to use
tbe heavier grade of oil aud tbe oou
tract for furnishing a 10.5 gravel qual
ity was forthwith awarded to II. A.
tilodget, bis being tbe only bid before
the board for that grade.
No time bae been lost in getting the
oil aud applying it, and today more
than balf the improved streets in
Bukersfield have leoeived their annual
baptism of the durk fluid.
To say that there is a great improve
ment in conditions is putting it mild
ly. Where several weeks ago there
was several inches of dust, tbe streets
are now packed smooth in many
places, assuming tbe appearanoe of as
I he application of oil to tbe streets
has been carried on in UakarsBeld lor
a number of years and many streets
have now reached e stage of perfec
tion where little or no further expense
is necessary. For a new Btreet that
has never before been oiled the con
tract calls for 115 bariels to tbe block,
coBting at the present contiaot price
about 975 per block foi the oil ap
plied. This is (he maximum applica
tion and tbe cost ranges from tbe
above figure down to 112 or $10 per
block, aceordiiig to the amiuut of oil
A specially designed sprinkler is
used in spreading the oil which bas
been previously heated to a tempera
ture of 200 degrees. After tbe oil bas
lieeu allowed to soak into tbe surface
for a short time a slide or drag con
structs of timbers is used to thor
oughly mix tbe oil and dirt. When
this operatic has been completed
sand is spread upon tbe stieet in
places where too much oil bas col
lected to thoroughly mix with the
Tbe toiegoiug pla'i of application
has been found very successful in llak
ersfleld with one or two exceptions,
tbe failures being noted in localities
where the streets have a loamy forma
tion or where the soil is oomposed of
clay Hud loam. In such cases the dirt
fails to pack properly and has a ten
dency to creep and form holes in the
surface. Plans are under considera
tion to remedy these objectionable
features aud hopes are entertained
that a successful method will soon be
found to overcome them.
Mr. Vancy, when seen last evening
by a Californian representtive, stated
that in the course of ten or twelve
days the present annual oiling will be
completed, which gives us the wel
come assurance that for tbe balance
of the suiumei liakerslield will be
practically a duslless city. Bakers
Undwwood, Aug. 20, 190G.
Hood River people generally seem to
think that they aie "it" wbeu it
comes to getting big returns from
their fruit, but that Is mainly du) to'
tbe fact that Underwood is yet to be
Our oouuty is new, aud we bare
but few trees of bearing age, but what
few we have are settiug a mark that
otbet growers will find it difficult to
urpass. While, when it comes to
growing peaches. Underwood stands
inacl tssby iUclf. Ketly 4 Dubois
have three trees of Hales Early, 8
years old, that bave botue since iney
were three years old, every year.
Tbe trees now measure 20 feet in di
ameter and 75 feet in circumference
and 16 feet high. This year they
picked 35 twenty-pound boxes horn
each tree, which sold for $30 por tiee,
t'M for the three trees, yielding a net
profit from tbe three trees ol ?ia.
Tbe trees aie planted 24 feet apart
biob would allow 75 trees to tbe
acre. Now figure out me returns
from an acre if you dare. Ibe aver
age retruu for the last three years is a
trifle over 817.50 per tree. nd even
this figure looks good to us, when we
stop to think that we do not bave to
irrigate or spray this crop, wnicn re
lieves us of two very heavy items
in the expense aooouut.
Now wbv in tbe name ot all tuai ib

see Hood River's $1,000 an acre land

for 150 per acre. Keeley & Diiuoia

from which they can expect to begin

Tbe dairy opertois of tbe Noith
west will bave an opportunity to wit
ness one of tbe latest applications
for "milking mechanically" in oper
ation daily in connection with the
airv exhibit during Oregon State
Fair week (Sent. 10-15). This is cer
tainlv a wonderful machine, the work
ing of which is perfect, toe lacteal
fluid being extracted gently, speedily,
aud thoroughly, therefoie removing
great amount of tbe drudgery in
connection with this very profitable
adjunct of our growing agricultural
district. Tbe dairy section of tbe fair
has outgrown its building and addi
tional space will be provided.
