It has lone been known that the Moaier dis trict la one of the most promlsiuK in Wasco county. No section of the state has better fruit prospects. The apple orchards are mostly young, but those in tearing produce an excellent quality of fruit. Italian prunes are the main crop at present, but in a year or two the apple crop will take the lead. The orchards are thoroughly cultivated but receive no Irrigation. Cherries ure re ceiving considerable attention and are found to be quite profitable. It was Mosier took first premium on cherries at the world's fair at Chicago. The premium cherries were grown on the Husbands ranch, now owned by E. J. Middleswart. Peaches are a sure crop and the quality la excellent. Melons do well and are of fine flavor. Cereal crops are produced without irrigation, and garden truck of all kindsdoes well. Tomatoes are a good crop but have not been extensively grown. Corn and potatoes are extensively grown. Mosier has the same facilities for transportation as Hood River the rail load and the river. The country is more broken, but it has good roads. There are two general merchandise stores nt the station, a blacksmith shop and a large fruit drying establishment. The latter Is owned and operated by P. Henningsen. Lee Evans, on bis place near town, also operates a fruit dryer that has a capacity of 5,000 pounds of green fruit a day. Mosier, prunes have acquired a reputation for good quality and are in demand. Grow ers this year are tilling many orders for prunes in the green state at good prices, 40 to 50 cents a crate. The bal ance of the crop will be sold to the dryer at f 15 a ton. The Glacier mn could not visit all the places in Mosier district during his short stay, but hopes to make another trip when he may have more time to visit with the hospitable people of that community. J. P. Carroll located at Mosier nine years ago. He has a well improved tilace, with large orchards of different inds of fruit but mostly apples. Mr. Carroll made a close study of fruit cul ture and has been very successful. His orchards are well kept and thor oughly cultivated. He believes in training an apple tree to branch out low, and when the tree is loaded with fruit the lower branches rest on the ground, forming complete protection to the trunks of the tree from the rays of the sun. VV ben the fruit is gathered the branches lift up again, at least enough to allow of cultivation in the spring. His Spitzenburg trees are a handsome sight, with their loaded branches tearing lo the ground. By this method of training the trees the fruit is easily gathered. Mr. Carroll bad 1,000 boxes of apples last .vear.wilh not 3 per cent wormy. He uses Ken nedy's mixture for spraying and sprays Ids trees first time soon as the blossoms fall, then every 15 days until the end of the season. Many of his two-year-old Missouri Pippin trees are tearing this year, but of course he has thinned the fruit and allowed only a few apples to remain on a tree. Mr. Carroll will have 1,200 boxes of apples this year. He has 200 cherry trees. One cherry tree seven years old measures 30 inches in circumference two feet from the ground, is 25 feet high and 20 feet across its branches. His cherry trees receive the same cultivation as the bal ance of his on-hard. G. L. Carroll, son of J. P , has about eight acres In orchard, mostly apples, lie has made all of his improvements in the past eight years. This year, from 20 cherry trees, he sold fil" worth of cherries. Three of these trees are seven years old, the balance five-year-old trees. This was at the rate of $500 an acre. J. T. Brown has a small orchard of about 500 trees. From 30 peach trees lie will gather over 200 boxes which will net him II a box. His place is cel ebrated for the fine flavorof its peaches and melons. W. A. Iavis has a tine young or chard. From 15 cherry trees be this year sold $75 worth of fruit. He hits 300 bearing apple trees, 7 and 8 years old. This is the off year for his or chard, but he w ill have 500 boxes of apples. Lee Evans, a leading citizen of Mo sier and prominent in fruit culture, came here 17 years ago and has a well improved place. Of his 175 acre 22 re in orchard. Unlike bis neighbor. J. P. Carroll, he believes In pruning to allow of cultivation close to the trees during the growing season. His or chards are well kept and present a handsome appearance. His apple or chard is just coming into tearing, but be will have 600 boxes. He will Bhip two carloads of prunes. William Johnson has a fine place two miles from the station on The Dalles road. He has 160 acres ; 50 acres cleared and 8 acres In orchard. Forty acres of his land lie down near the river front and is of the iiest quality for farming, gardening or fruit growing. On his upland he has two acres in young or chard just coming into bearing. Be tween the orchard rows he planted corn, which is making an excellent crop. For the past two years he has tried to exterminate the potatoes that volunteer in this orchard. This season so far he has dug 34 sacks of fine, large potatoes ana nas not gone hair way over the patch. He hus 14 acres in corn, which is making a good crop. The place has good buildings, fences, etc , and is for sale for $5,000, with all the implements the best bargain in land that we know of. E. J. Middleswart, a native of Meigs county, O., while his wife comes from Masou county, West Va., now owns and resides on the old Husbands place. tie nas a delightful home as well as a productive furm. He sold this year 225 boxes of cherries, 40 of which were picked from one tree: 250 orates ot peach plums netted him 40c a crate. rilteen tons of hay were made on the place; he will have 17 tons of prunes, 150 boxes of peaches and 400 boxes of apples. U. bellinger, adjoining Middleswart on the west, has a fine place. His or chards are well kept and productive. xnis is ms on year tor apples, but ne will have 500 boxes of choice fruit and 40 tons of prunes. Jcnerson JN. Mosier has a largo farm adjoining Sellinger, every foot of which can be cleared for cultivation. Mr. Mosier lias devoted his time to stock raising more than to fruit, but will here after grow more fruit. He unw has 55 heal of cattle, tie will plant 200 cherry trees this fall. Twenty trees brought him $150 this year. He will have 1200 crates of prunes. Last August he set four acres to strawberries, from which he marketed 60 crates this year. The plants are doing nicely and next year he may expect a full crop, His paten this year beat White Salmon for earliness, and his berries supplied the presi dential party. A. P. iiateliam, of the Davidson fruit Co., engineered the lay ing off of his strawberry ground to make it easily irrigated, and he did a fine job. Mr. Mosier uiav well be proud of his strawberry patch. Aliss Doilie Mosier and Mrs. t,. V. Phillips have 17 acres in apple orchard 6 years old. They will have 1,000 boxes of apples this year. J. J. Lewis is car ing for the orchard. The trees have been well sprayed. Mr. Lewis says he can save 100 per cent of the apples by using Kennedy's mixture. 8. E. Fisher has 100 acres of land, 6 in young orchard of apples, prunes and cherries; also has some strawberries. Mr. Fisher sold 100 bjxee of cherries this year at from 63 cents to $1.00 a box the latter price for Black Tartarians, which on his place are large and fine.

It is an excellent boat, and will be much appreciated by all who go to Lost lake. Kaleigh Phelps, the forest ranger, has promised to look after the boat when he leaves the lake in the fall. The first boat on Lost lake was put there in August, 1891, and has been in use ever since. Joe Wilson, John Divers, A. D. Walker and II. T. Collin, the lat ter two of Portland, split the planks for the Doat trom a ceuar log Dy means ot a froe. They were four davsfit the job. Mr. Wilson says there was a sail on the boat at first, but owing to the many cross-currents of wind which played upon the lake, tins' sail was considered too dangerous and was soon dispensed with. Among the first white men to visit the lake were John and Joe Divers, but there was no trail to this place until the summer of '80, when a party of 13 went in to the lake. Tiie lake is visible from the oae ot mount iiood, but no one knew just where it was, so the following party decided to visit and locate the ake: Hon. J'j. Ij. Smith, JNewton Clark, Judd Ferguson, Dr. T.L. Eliot and two brothers.Edward and Chauncy Eliot, Lyman and Will Smith, Milton Odell, Louis Henderson, William Davidson, Levy Pitts and William Hudson. They expected John Divers, who had been there, to go with them, but he was too busy harve-ting at the time, the first night after leaving the Divers ranch the party camped at bandy luut, and the second night about a mile and a half from the lake. The air was smoky, which made it difficult to Bee far. That night a council was held, and each one gave his opinion as to where the lake lay, some pointing back toward the trail over which they had come, some thought they were lost, while with the others it was the lake.But E.L.Smith and Newton Clark were mountain surveyors and pushed on the next morn- ng with the crowd, boon some one saw the lake ami set up the cry, "the lake, the lake." This is how Lost lake was found. Of course to name it was an easier matter Trout Lake Sews Notes. (Inez Fllloon In The Dalles Chronicle.)

It is understood that the Cameron Bros, who registered, and Mr.Frost, are looking about for new fields for their saw mills, and will probably locate up on the White Balmon. The sunsets the past week have been grand, as the orb of day hangs in the western sky, golden, then drops behind tbe hill, and leaves such beautiful after glows of red and amber puipling into darker night, and aa we watch the change until tbe evening star awakes, the moon, round and big, peeps over the eastern bills of Glenwood and then makes eyes at us from among the point ed firs before he glides to the plain fields of ether and turns night into beauty also. The reflections of all on shore in the stream that flows almost under the floor of our bungalow, dancing and glis tening in the light made by the moon is bewitching and makes us also exclaim, "How beautiful is night!"
