It would be difficult to choose a

tusiness than Orvgon. Its productive
valleys and fertile plateaus appeal
by nut orb to have been desi&ued for
fruit oulture; bere all varieties adapt

their greatest perfection. As a lesiili
fruit growing is malting more rtpld

What has been accomplished so suc
cessfully by Hood Kiver people can be
done elsewhere with peiseveranoe and
systematic work. AH soils are not
adapted to apple culture, but tbla need
oat be a detiiineut, as cherries,
peaches, aprioots, pears, grapes, and
other small fruits can be giown very
profitably on the right kind ot soiL
Tbe Dalles growers are displaying
greater euergy tbau ever before, and
maoh planting of young orchards is
In evidence. Cherries, however, seem
to be much in tbe lead, and large or
chards of tbe valuable fruit will be
aet out during the ensuing- plauting
season; 35,01)0 tre s appears at this
time a conservative tlguie of tbe
number that will be planted, tho'ugh
this may be exceeded by several
thousand if nurseries can supply tbe
With the already large aoresae In
cherries in the vicinity, her claim to
the title of tbe "Cherry City" does
not appear to be misplaced.
Large planting ot peaches, aprioots,
peara and grapes will also be made,,
and many 01 tne old and neglected
orchards are being renovated and
brought into a state oi productive
ness . Tbe Mosier community haa passed
through a prosperous season, and
shows reoord ot a bumper crop, and a
rapidly increasing acreage in or
chards, many thousands ot treea are
being planted, consisting mostly of
apples and cherries.
Upraying Is, at tne present time,
one ot tbe principal requisites . to
fruit culture, a fact of which every
fruit grower is fully aware, and that
regular and systematic spraying is
practiced is demonstrated . by tbe
largely Inoreaeed quantity, of clean
fruit being put upon tbe merkets.
Tbe San Jose scale has become so
generally distributed in all ftuit
growing sections tbat most growers
have become acquainted with Us de
structive effects. It attack! all kinds
of fruit trees, and may be found In
many instances on native trees, es
pecially on willows along creek bot
toms adjacent to orchards; even pine
trees are Infested with this most In
satiable of all Insects. When piesent
on bearing trees, it always attacks the
fruit, causing oonspioloiia rod blotch
es. It has lost many ot its former
terrors, however, as it Is not dittloult
to control, and even., eradioate tbis
pest from tbe orchard entirely by us
ing tbe sulphur and lime spray, prop
erly prepared and thoroughly applied
during tbe dormant eeason.
Arsenate of lead has become recog

known brands of equal effectiveness

K. H. WfclHEK
Commissioner Fourth Districts
By Q. R. Castner.
In tbe snrlnfl of 1894 I landed In
Hood Kiver, on the 29 tb day ot
Match, having even tbe apples on dis
play at tbe Columbian World's Pair
at Chicago in tbe fall of 1893. . I quit
railroad work and came to Oregon to
eugage lu trull growing. After look
ing aboot the valley for two weeks' I
deeHed on my present location, there
being six acres or clay loam that bad
been lately cleared, having had ode
oro ot corn, followed the same fall
by a crop of winter barley, leavina
tbe ground In rerfeot shape for set
ting trees. '1 made my selection b!
trees as follows: Three hundred aud
fotty .Newtowns, 50 Spitzenbergs, 60
Ben Davis, eli ven King of 4'ompklns
County, and a few other home varie
ties, t he trees arrived and 1 set tbetn
tbe last week in April, and bate
leatned siuoe that tbey were watched
oloHy by my neighbors, aa -they ex
pected to tea me lose a great portion
of tbetn by setting so late. , fcnt
strange to say,- 1 did not lose one,
and ton nd only one at bearing 'time
not trne to name. I need oar In set
ting, digging the holes nearly three
feet acioss and two feet deep, carry
Ing a large tobacco nail of water wnd
dipping the roota of erery tree before
setting. ' 1 set them 22 feet apart eadb
way, bot now wish I had made tbetn
25 feet. I planted corn between the
rows for five years, raising plenty of
corn to fatten bogs and feed a'ook;
since tnen i nave grown notblng in
tbe orchard, but praotioed Clean oultl
ration. The tree were good yearling
t -eos, snd 1 beaded tbem down to
three feet, having set tbem aboot
three inches deeper tbaa tbey were
set in tbe nursery. Tba following
winter we bad qaite a deep snow, and
many ot the lower limbs ware stripped
by saow settling, so I waa obliged to
u-ake toe nead oi too tree from
branches tbat were left near the top.
I would prefer to commence bead
about 20 inches or two feet fiom the
ground. 1 beaded back all trees tbe
second year, but slno then have
pruned to balance trees aga ost the
wind only and to take ont orosees. (1
bad some fruit the fonrtb year, more
the fifth, and the sixth year bad a
good crop, and have bad an ' increase
each yeat since, selling the Newtowns
last yeat for about $1,600.

In tbe winter of 1896-7 I lost 28 New
towns from tbe November freeze, and
replaced tbem with Baldwins and
bpilzenoergs, and since then I bate
replaced until I bave only 308 cf tbe
original Newtown setting left; of this
number 'CM bear eaon year, thnaa
bearing heavily the previous year

be well protected from tbe wind to
get tbe best result.

Report of the Hewer Commit ee.
To tbe Com in ou Counoil of the ''City
or uood Kiver:
We. your committee hate completed
the ooustiuotion of the outfall sewer
and the system in division No. 1, ot
tbe oity of Hood Kiver, Tbe specifi
cations foi construction of this sys
tem bave beu toiluwed with the ex
ception of a few deviations therefrom
wbere tbe Interests of tbe oity requir
1. Lessening the depth of the sew
er wbeie its etilciency was not im
paired. 2. lnclauiug tbe tracts of a tew
residents adjoiuiug ou the outside ot
boundary of ine tliat duiston on the
east wbere connections properly be
longed in this division in ordei to be
3. Umitttiug the tracts of thre
residents located aloug the iuside of
tbe western boundary of first division
wbere connections oan only be mad
with sewer system in division No. 9,
when same may be constructed.
Ihe petitions of owners ' ot these
tracts which bave been included or
omitted . bave been passed upon by
this committee and approved.
Witb tbe exception ot a section of
sewer located on Oak street east of
First street of from 50 feet to 100 feet
In length, we believe tbe system to be
well oontructed and operating satis
factorily. The defect above refeared
to consists in tbe eeuer pipe having
been laid oue to five inches below
regular grade aud tl ial settlement
witb tbe engineer in charge baa been
deferred until the matter is adjusted
wblob will be as soon as weather per
mits. Ihe estimated cost of tbe sewer for
division 1, a .d outfall sewer as esti
mated by tbe eugiueer of tbe oity
and wbiob was uted as a basis lor tb
assessment, was 925,560. The actual
cost completed wai .Hj,451.04.
Thia inoreased utst Is due to th
faot that tbe engiueet tor tb oity
based bis estimates upon certain pro
portion! ot r ck and dirt work in ex
cavation and tbe contract for con
struction wai let ui uu a classified
basis of fifty cents upward per Cublo
yard for excavating dirt and 92 and
upward per cubio yard for ejoavat
ing rook and cement grave), tbe prlo
ranging upward from these figure ao
oording to the depth of excavation.
Ihe actual estimates during tb
construction of the sewer and tbe final
estimates by the engineer tot th
city, as approved by tbe oity inspect

and filed with tbe city tecoorder,
show that tbe proportion of rock work
encountered in aotual construction,
was more than double tbat of tb en-
