1 A SMALL
PA MEN
AND A SMALL
MONTHS WILL
MONTHLY PAYMENT FOR EIGHTEEN
MAKE YOU THE OWNER OF A COM
MERCIAL ORCHARD
ft
FOR EXAMPLE
Valley View Orchard Ac
reage, lying just west of
Enterprise, offers a few
acre orchard tracts at
$175. You can pay
$17.50 down and $8.75
each month for eighteen
months and you have
your tract paid for. This
price is complete. It in
cludes the .trees, the
planting, the pruning and
cultivating for three years
and also a guarantee that
one hundred per cent of
the trees will be living at
the end of the time. An
easier way to make mon
ey and save it has never i
been offered in Wallowa
County. '
A SAVINGS BANK
No better opportunity can
be found in the county to
invest a monthly savings
account A commercial
orchard tract will not only
increase in value each
month but when it begins
to bear, .the returns are
so much greater than a
savings bank that there is
no comparison. Try to
buy any orchard in the
county and see what value
the owners place upon it.
Almost any person can
arrange to meet the small
payments on Valley View
Orchard Acreage and not
miss the. money each
month. At the end of 18
months you are the owner
of an acre of growing ap
ple; trees.
Every acre will be set to good
commercial , apple trees adapt
ed to this county, and pruned,
trimmed and cultivated for
three years, thus turning over
to the purchaser a good thrifty
orchard just ready to begin
coining money. During the
three years you do not have
to be bothered with the care
and cultivation of the trees all
of this expense is included in
the purchase price. Sirnjlar
orchard tracts are being sold
in the Grande Ronde Valley
for from $350 to $500 per
acre. In Colorado the prices
are even higher.
WHAT OTHERS DO
Walla Walla, Wash , Oct. 18 (Spe
cial) -Kifleen cars of fancy apples have
been pooled by Seth Ferrel and Fred
Uahn, Mill Creek oicharrlisls, who are
asking f 1.75 a box for die fruit. Be
tween 8,000 and 10,000 boxes of ap
ples are held in the pool. Many oilers
have been made for the apples, in
cluding one from an English firm, and
seveial of them are said to be close to
the mark at which they are held. If
sold at the price asked by the farmers
the fruit will make a cash return of
about f 12.50 a tree. Each of the farm
ers named has about 500 trees.
The above is a dispatch
from Walla Walla to the
Oregonian. Counting 50
trees to the acre, $12.50
to the tree, it will be seen
that the return per acre
for a single crop is $625.
What will your acre tract
be worth if you can gather
even $500 worth of ap
ples? Any commercial or
chardist will tell you that
$625 is a small return
per acre.
-WHAT IS LAND WORTH?
Did j'ou ever stop to think
what a commercial apple
orchard is worth per acre?
What is land worth that
nets . the owner $10 per
acre per year? What is
land worth that brings in
$600 per acre per )'ear?
Ask any commercial or
chardist what an or
chard is worth. There are
but few commercial or.
chards in Wallowa county
but the late county fair
demonstrated that there is
jcing to be a great many
of them. Why not be
among the first while the
tracts are cheap, rather
than last when you will
have to pay from $500 to
$1,000 per acre.
Can You Think of an Easier, Quicker; and Better Way to Save and Invest a Small Amount
... Each Month?

PRESIDENT TAFT TO
VISIT, PANAMA' CANAL
Will Look Oyer Big Ditch Before
Making Recommendations
to Congress.
Washington, D. C With the work
on, the Panama canal progressing so
rapidly as to Insure a completion of
the ditch perhaps a year sooner than
January 1, 1915, the date originally
set, President Taft finds It necessary
to make a hurried visit to the Isth
mus In ' order to secure first hand
knowledge of Its problems as a basis
for a program of legislation for the
canal which the Intends to push
through at the coming session of con
gress. ''' ' ' 1 '
The executive wants to anticipate
the problems wh'.ch will arise when
the canal Is completed. He wants to
have everything covered prior to the
opening so that there will be no ne
cessity Jot legislates after thoughts.
Congress will be asked for the fol
lowing legislation:
Ad appropriation of at least $3c
000,000 for prelimlnfTry work In forti
fying the canal. The total cost of
fortification will probably be $15,
000.000. ' ; '
Establishment of a definite govern
ment for the tone.
Settlement of the rate to be paid
by foreign vessels for passage through
the canal. ' ' ' '
Disposition of the Panama rail
road. ' .
Worklngmen's compensation for In
juries. " "
Salary adjustment of certain class
es of laborers on the zone.
. President, Taft'i most perplexing
problem of all Is to determine the
form of government to be established
oa the Isthmus. In reality there Is
no government on the aone at pres
ent , Congress left to the president
the Job of administering Justice and
enforcing the laws, but It did' not
specify how he was to & U
President Taft left Washington
Monday night to cast his ballot in
Cincinnati Tuesday, arriving back in
Washington Wednesday morning. The
president spent but a few hours in
the city, leaving again In the after
noon for Charleston, S. C, and sail
ing from that city at noon Thursday
for Panama.

tion taken by Judge Baldwin on the
employers' liability question was
retrogressive.
