All frait except apricot and peach promise well. The Ogon plum is now ia fall bloom. The high winds prevailing have a tendency to dry the freshly plowed fields, bat otherwise have done no damage. The revival meeting conducted by the Rev. L. M. Campbell were qaite satisfactory in results. Walter Hale has 30 acres of beets planted. His early planting is com ing np, with every indication of a perfect stand. C. V. Henkle has moved the rem nant of his band of sheep to the Weller range near Chivington. He sold his main herd, 2,000 head, to someT Oregon parties recently, at $3.- 75 per head.

It is a valuable proposition and no delay should be made in begin ing development. Rio. The President in Yellowstone Park. The president is enjoying a sixteen day onting in the Yellowstone Na tional Park. He is accompanied by John Borronghs the celebrated nat uralist, and his recreation in the park will consist in studying animals and in enjoying the beauties of the for ests and mountains, a pastime to which he is very much attached. There will of course be no fishing or hunting. Several camps have been estabish ed to which the party will move from time to time. The president’s surroundings and occupation while in the mountains will be in striking contrast to those he has just left and he is sure to enjoy the trip to tne fullest extent. One of the great advantages of having a president who is willing to travel extensively over the country is that he becomes familiar with the needs of the people and of the differ ent departments of the government at first hand. President Roosevelt is very much interested in preserv ing our forests, and also in the sub ject of irrigation He has long since famiilarized himself with these sub jeots and these trips through the omciilj ITETSrePJLI*EE or PETITSEEG COT7ITTT LAMAR.
