whether he had ever! been through all
the departments of the institution. j
"I never have, but ! I'd like to see it.'f
replied the politician. '- ' j
"It will give me miich pleasure to go

Mr. Putman took him behind the

flank of the Brifsh lines until they had
found la tall tppje that neither the
British nor the jBoers seemed to want.
They .got out cjf their cart and clam

Kipling and Bfurleigh felt pretty se
cure on their kope, which they thought
nobody wanted; but they forgot that
a battlefield is a changeable , sort of
thing, and before they remembered
Vhis fact the British cavalry were : at
the foci; of their, hill. The Boer never
lost sight of the cavalry, of 'course, and
row they discovered the two lone spec
tators. In a moment rifle balls! were
plugging away on the side of the

ling remarked t hart small trees! were
very poor breastworks. He had heard
wonderful stories d Boer rifle balls

Mr. Burleigh thought the suggestion

men of letter began to hunt cover. It

Eirly in the engagement Mr. Kipling
haxl begun to put workls together in

dodged bullets and zig-zagged jo their

lA meeting of all the growers who
joined the asswiation at the prtlunin
ary meeting will be held today, when
Suggestions offered by the board of di
rectors wiU be acted upon. It will be
ascertaitfecTat today's meeting whether
the. necessary 75 per cent menrbershij
of growers has been secured with which
to form a permanent organization that
may prove an effective agency .in the
hamlling of this year's prune crop.
If the necessary membership J re
ported the permanent organization will
be found and' plans put into effect-for
pooling this year's crop. Otherwise,
there are two conn-es to pursue port
pone. matters until the required jur
centage of membership is obtained rr
empower -the temporary association t
handle.as much 0 this year's crop as it
can -secure 'control of.
"After CompaVing notes, the direct
ors, wiirknow to a fraction the stati
of ; the present meniberhip," says the
Portland Telegram. "Each xine has
been doing missionary work in hi-
particular district in securing signers.
From reports already received, some
of them have obtained the percentage,
while others were not so fortunate.
Every "grower signed with the undvr
standing that unless the. percentage
was obtained, the agreement should not
be binding, and therefore it is optional
whether or not he continued a nun
her. In any event it is expected good
results will be obtained from the work.;

85 can profit by this experience, to form
a permanent organization next year.
A start ha been mryie and that is con
sidered a very important point gained.
"But. according to shrewd judgment
on the, question, there is no reason why
the growers should. not profit by the
work of the direceors on this year's'
crop, even though the membership i?
not up to the 75 per cent mark. There
wiU he enough growers represented
to control the majority of the prune
ron and bv allowing the association
to handle it. much ! better prict might
he secured by avoiding ruinous com
petition. The temporary organiza
tion could then have a chance to give
practical illustration of the working
benefits of such an association, and in
case of success, make the balance ot
the prunegrowers anxious to jh;
Then the entire 1901 crop ; could . 1
pooled without an effort. .
"These are things, however, .which '
tlie directors at. their meeting will care
fullv weigh. The first thing to settle
is the percentage of membership ob
tained. If that is siifticient everything
will be plain sailing. ' .:
"The convention of the growers to
act uon the suggestions made !) the !
dirprior will be an important one. It
is expected there will be a large mini-.
bet of prunegrowers present, represent
ing tiie prune-rowing districts of the
Pacific Northwest." f
SHirr-iyr 'W BERRIES.
Tlie Willamette Valley fruit growers, f
by their actions at least, are strong ad-1
vocntes-of the policy of reciprocity. .. A
few weeks ago strawberries were Wing'
shipped to Salem from Southern Ore-j
gon and California points, for which.
the consumer was paying at the rate -i .
from 8 1-3 to 25 cents per box. the price'
depending upon the . season and the
abundance of the fruit. At the present ;
time Oregon growers are shipping de
licious strawberries to points in South-(
ern Oregon and even as far south a
Redding. California. Some are. al
being shipped to Seattle, the first ship
ment to that point being made yester
day. In Southern Oregon, the hemes ,
are retailing for 81-3 cents per . J
and there is a good demand for- the .!
product. When strawberries; are re- ;
tailing in the local market-for 75 cents j
per crate, one might conclude that the
shipping of this fruit would prove vety .
tremttnerattve bu-siriess.. but inantuch 1
a? all sveh shipments arc made by ex- ,
press, for which the charge is quite ex- j
ccssive. it is seen that the great part, of
the profit is required for transpotta-
