ORDERED.
The "near hear" venders will not
get a foothold In Enterprise If the
council can prevent. Several partlet
have desired to open up "soft drink'

bars and billiard tables are Included.
And to make money to have the
boys line up and shake dice by the
hour and drink 60 more drinks of the
1 per cent alcohol stuff than they
want It Is necesasry to have mag
nets such as bars and billiard tables
to "draw the trade." But at the
meeting of the city council Tuesday
night the proposition to decrease
the license for such places was sc
unpopular It was not put to vote.

ALDER SLOPE FRUIT FARM.
One of the prettiest and one oi
. !ie busiest places on all Aldet
ii'opt: these days is the Mountain
v'lew Fruit Ranch. The strawber
ries and cherries are1 nearly gone
but they are just beginning to pick
the deucate flavored red raspberries
and no doubt will find ready marke
for every gallon of the big crop
Air. and Mrs. O. J. Roe have worked
a transformation in the famous fruit
farm, and it has been literally work,
hard work. The results - are appar
ent, however, and it pays, too, at

.vet to come the plums, peach plums
pears and apples. The orchard re
ceived a thorough trimming this
spring and the fruit promises an
abundant yield.
