I'i ci uri.ged by the strides Hood
Ri.er is making in the fruit business,
the Dufur Dispatoh remarks:
The recent reports in the papers
shows what may be done, and is
being done, in the fruit industry by
our neighbors at Hood River, and !e
there any reason why we in the neigh
borhood of Dufur - should not do the
same thing? For the past two years
we have bad at least a partial failure
of the wheat crop, and it seems to ni
that it would be well to try the grow
ing of fruit. There is no plane along
Fifteeu Mile creek that will not raise
good fruit if properly taken care of.
U. P. ISaloh has some peaches this
year that cannot be beaten for lus
oiousness aud flavor, and the size
is very good for the amount of fruit
the trees bear. John Havely brought
us n sample of some esobes that were
raised on his plaoe in Dufur without
irrigation that were very One, and
George Johnson tells us that up Fif
teen Mile creek, in a fence corner,
are peach trees that bear fine fruit
which are not oared for at all If this
be true of trees without oare or water
what may we not do if the trees are
oared for in the proper way? The land
all along Fifteen Mile creek is well
adapted to the raising of fruit and if
planted to fruit trees would make the
laud worth $100 per aore where it now
is worth but from 140 to 50. Wbat
we have here said concerning peaches
may be said of apples and pears, both
of them are adapted to this climate
and country particularly the New
towns and Spitzenberg. With a 20-
acre pieoe of land planted to these
trees a yield of 1,500 may be realized
while from the present products of
the land at the best, we can get but

A Miner's Inch.
The Mining World savs: A miner's
inch is the anantitr of the water de
livered through each square inob of
opening, and which varies from 1.4 to
1.7 cubic feet of water er minute.
The custom among enginrera is to
take 1.5 oubio feet of water per min
ute as the equivalent of an inch. For
illustration: 1,000 miner's inches of
water (25 oubio feet per second) is
about the quantity which would be
carried by an ordinary wooden flume
30 inches wide, flowing 18 iucbes
deep if the flume had fall of oue
inch per box of 12 feet (36 feet per
mile) this giving a stream velocity of
0.7 feet per second

tion, and the price impossible under ordinary buying.

A Serious Pest.
Wbat is the meaning of the word
"producer " as applied to tbe fruit
industry? Tbe man who plows up
pieoe of ground, digs holes, buys a
miscellaneous assortment of trees and
sticks them in the boles, grows any
old-kind of fruit, is careless in spray
ing, pruning and cultivating, gathers
half a dozen boxes of a kind, all
wormy, scaly, measly, tasteless, all
sizes, all colors, all worthless except
for bog feed, is a holy terror to the
middl -man and the despair of tbe
bnver and oonsumer. He is not a pro
ducerhe is a pest-breeder. Like tbe
lilv referred to in tbe Good Book, he
"toils not," neither does he produoe
fruit, and oerttainly "Solomon in all
his glory" was not arrayed a one of
these. He dumps bis - worthless
wares in the packing house and de
mands of the middleman top prices;
and, when be cannot get them, turns
"knocker" and runs down tbe Indus-t-y
aud everyone connected with it.
Let . as try to forget bis existence,
and hope for the happy days wben be
may no longer be tbe only fruit pest
that it is murder iu tbe 9rst degree

One Thousand Year Old Roue.
One of tbe interesting horticultural
curiosities of Kildesbeim, Germany,
of which our staff correspondent, who
Is spending bis sunnier vacation
there, sends a photograph, is a thous
and year old rose ("1.000 jariger
Ro-enstock"). Judging from tbe il
lustration it is still vigorous, and
covers, or appears to do so, quite a
large building. It seems also to re
ceive .careful attention, and, quite
likely, is in charge of oue ot tbe rose
experts, for which Germany Is noted.
It would be a matter of interest to
know the history of this rose, as well
as of tbe political and social obanges
which have taken place since It was
first established iu - be fertile soil of
