to the Jerman hop ranch a mile north
of l'ratuui. It is owned and operated
! by A. (1. aad O. C. Jerman, father and
I son. In our 25 years' experience hop

There were some 75 acres planted to
"hops but on account of mold several
acres had to be left unpicked. 1 was
I not able to get an approximate state
ment as to the number of bales expect
ed. There were five dryers in opera
tion. Semester Bros., of Fratum, had a
store on the grounds and contrary to
custom at such places did not run a
game of "graft" on the pickers, but
sold supplies at a reasnable price.
On Wednesday, the 20th, the proprie
tors of the hop yard threshed in about
13 hours nearly 3,000 bushels of oats
and about 500 bushels of wheat. This
was going some. The Roth outfit did
the work, the machine being a Ilti-inch
cyliuder "Advance" of Battle Creek,
Mich. The small aad compact town of
Switzerland is located near the Jermau
farm. It consists of one dwelling house
occupied by the family of Mr. l'earl
Miller. Tom White of Fruitlaud, is the
other inhabitant during the day. He is
receiver of grain, storing it in the two
warehouses of Albers Bros., of Port
land. These two buildings constitute the
remainder of the town which at pres
ent is minus a mayor, chief of police
and a board of aldermen. Mr. Miller
and Tom being both civil and lawnhid
ing there is no need of a constabulary
to rule the place. This little city with
the Alpine name is located on the Wood-burn-Silvertou
branch of the Southern
acific. It is a flag station and so lias
uo ticket agent nor trunk smasher.
The famous Nelah Springs is about a
mile down the track and a little to the
left in a nice camping place. The water
is said to possess medicinal proprieties
but you wouldn't know it by the taste
at least I didn't. It is a nice concrete
walled spring several feet deep, the
water is bottled and scut all over the
country and the credulous drinker prob
ably feels himself relieved of his ail
ments as well as the small price he pays

It was onlv on reaching tho most ad

that one could grasp mathematically the
methodical progress which had rendered
the allies' new tactics of advancing by
heavy artillery absolutely irresistible,

Combles consisted of comparatively
light batteries. These' have been rushed

everything but toot soldiers.
But while troops were tugging guns

roadway several feet below tho surface
of the ground, paving it with bricks
