trip for this experience atone. These
canals, built at a cost of more than
twentyfive million dollars to the
American and Canadian govern-!

through while others are anchored at

through the canal affords ample op

Pheasant Hunters In Po!k
Having Poor Luck, Report
Dallas, Or., Oct. 6. Chinese pheas
ants are less numerous in the vicinitv
of - Dallas this year than in many years
I-ust, due, according to hunters, to the
cold raius of the late spring during the
lit. telling season. Vw hunters returned
to the city the first day of the season
with the bag limit, and the number of
birds killed have been decreasing from
day to day until it is extremely fortn
nate if a hunter gets as mauy as two
oinw at a trip.
This county formerly was famous as
hunting ground for Chinese pheasants
but each year the birds are becoming
more scarce and a number of farmers
in the southern part of the countv have
placed their farms in a game reserve to
protect the pheasants.

were made for Mr., Paulus to handle a
large tonnage of apples in that district.
Many who had net-previously done so
signed up as members of the organiza
tion at this meeting.' From present in
dications it is probable that practically
al the tonnage in this district will be
enrolled ia the association.
The booth which -the Association had
at the state fair attracted much 1'avor
ble comment. A huge basket of fruit
was fewtured, as "Oregon the Fruit
Basket of the World." Behind the bas
ket a large map of Oregon hung on tin
wall and colored ribbons led from dif
ferent specimens of fruit to the map
showing the district from which it came,
(me visitor, an eastern woman, was uot
nvinced that the exhibit o. fruit was

some splendid prunes and' grapes.
