' Hood River has not yet gone very extensively Into the cultivation of prunes, bot I here are several young or chard that in a year or two will have considerable output, enough to keep a lurge1 dryer busy during the drying season. Although we are favorably situated for markets, being on the line of an overland railroad, our shipments of green prunes in carload lots Lave never paid etiough to cover the expense of shipping. Prunes can be grown here as suucessfullv us in the Willam ette valley or in Clarke county, Wash., and the weather here Is generally more favorable in the fall for gathering and drying the fruit. . ; Major Wilkinson, who was killed In the battle with the Indians in Minne sota last week, was well known In Ore gon twenty years ago, when he was a lieutenant and brevet captain in' the regular army. In Portland, where he held meetings on the streets, before the advent of the Salvation Army, be was considered a religious crank. With Gen. Howard he organized the Y. M. O. A. in Portland. His army record and his tragic death at the hands of the1 hostile Indians while cheering his men show him to have been a brave mail. . Mr. Fred Broteje, a successful fruit grower near Portland, recommends winter spraying for the codlin "moth. He sprays in December and MaVch and uses the following mixture: Eighty pounds of lime, 100 pounds of sulphur and 5 pounds of vitriol in 250 gallons of water. The spring spray should be weaker, using from 750 to 1,000 gallons, of water. This spray, he .avers, will kill San Jooe scale and codlin moth. The agony is over at Salem and Hon Joseph Simon is a United States sen ator from Oregon for the next four years. Mr. Simon has been' talked about and abused as much as any man who ever mixed in politics in Oregon, but no man was ever abused more un justly. He will make one of the most popular and useful members of the senate ever sent from Oregon. The big saw mill for Hood River Is still a matter of doubt. But whether we have the mill or not, Hood River is all right. .If our timber interests re main undeveloped we have other re sources that are making our . valley known fur and wide. We haven't heard of any one wanting to sellout and leave the country if the mill doesn't i The complimentary vote given in the legislature fof Judge Bennett for senator called forth many flattering re marks from the press of the state and showed that there would not have been much trouble to elect a senator if the fusionists had had a majority. ' ' Dave Gibbons Saw the Battle of Manila. Manila, Philippine Islands, Aug. 22, 1898. Dear folks at home: At last we are in Manila, and I for one am g'adoflt. In fact, all of the Amer icans seem to ureter Manila to Camp Dewey. After I wrote you last I was transferred from . Cavite to Camp Dewey, where all. the American forces were camped except the Oregon boys, and they were in Cavite. I am at present in the divisiou hospital. How ard Isenberg and I are together. He is detailed as clerk to. Major Card well, and I am detailed by Major Penrose to act as assistant in the operating room. My appointment was on recommenda tion, of .Major Cardwell, who is major and chief surgeon of all the volunteers in the Philippines and a good friend 3f mine. 1 will tell you about the fight and bombardment of Manila. I saw the bombardment and was also right on the firin'g line of the American forces. The bombardment commenced about 1 10 o'clock on the morning of August 13lh and lasted till about 12 o'clock. The tight between the American army and the Spaniards only lasted about an hour and did not commence till after the bombardment was over. Dewey silenced the big - shore battertes and then the army was ordered to charge the Spanish intrenebments, which they did with a will. The Spaniards made a stand for about an hour, but their loss was so heavy they finally had to retreat, and alter tbey com menced to fall back and the Americans followed, it was only a short time till . it wa all over. In fact it was so short that I hardly bad time to think of it as a bailie. The American loss was about 25 killed and 75 wounded. The Span ish loss was much greater, as Dewey's shells created great havoc wherever they struck. When we got into Ma nila lots ot dead Spaniards were to be seen lying in the trenches. I have made up my mind to one thing, and that is that the American soldiers are not afraid to fight. If the -Spanish were any kind of marksmen they could have easily killed 500 Americans, be cause they had the in trench men ts and our men had to charge them. It can easily be seen who had the advantage; but the Spanish have no nerve and were afraid of the Americans. One incident of the" fight that I wit nessed is worth relating. 1 was stand ing on a little ' hillock, close to where 'the troops crossed a swamp, trying to see what I could see, when the Colorado volunteers came along. It was fun to see them wading in the water up to their waists. Their band had the lead and were playing "Dixie" and "March ing Through Georgia. " The fellow who played on the base drum bad it sitting on his head, and he was more than playing his part. And you must remember that the bullets were flying thick and fast around there, but I learned afterwards that none of the band were hit. It was the only band ,that on tlie Hue or imitie. Manila is a thoroughly Spanish city It has about 350,000 inhabitants. There are lots of Chinese and Japs here, and thousands of natives. The Spanish uere treat the Americans nne so tur. As soon as they found out that we would not loot the city nor let the na tives loot it they thought we were all right. The natives who come into the city are all disarmed and can do no damage. There are many Americans here. The Spaniards are a gay race of people; tlie women are very nne iook ing, especially the senoritos, or young ladies, who seem to like to make friends with the American soldiers. I just received your letter that was dated July 9tb. This is the 23d of August. It takes quite a while for a letter to come from home. It is ru mored here that some of the troops will start borne soon. I hope it is true. I think, however, we will be safe in say iug that we will eat our Christmas din ners at home. The regulars will be left here for awhile, but the volunteers are very apt to be sent home as soon as practicable.' At least we all nope so. We are not much stuck on the Phil ippine Islands. The United States is good enough lor me. I airi your atlec Donate son, D. M. Gibbons, Hosp. Corps, 2d Oregon Vols., Cavite, Philippines. ToCure Contlfcloii Forevftr.

Colorado Soldier's Veil. Denver Post. " I would like to write a sonnet and put loving trlmmin's on it i To the pretty girl I left behind me. But she's got another feller, and I simply want to tell her That her loss with bitter tears will never blind me. Here In beautiful Manila, far across the bounding billow, I have found another sugar plum, God bless her! And although she Is the color of a fried New England cruller, It will never drain my pocketbook to dress her.

And her mouth is a creation built for blissful osculation, With the very cutest nose on earth above it. And her smile!
