Embracing alt that part ofthc state west of the Cascade range of mountains and east or tho Pacific ocean, bounded on the north by the Columbia river and on the south by tho north boundary of the state of California This would Include less than one. thirds of the entire crea of this state. There is over 75 per cent of the entire population of Oregon living within this part of the state, and it Is estimated that there is near eight-tenths of the entire wealth of this state owned in this part of Oregon. There is not in this part of the stato any considerable amount ol public government land, suitable for agricultural porposes. These U quite a considerable amount of government land In this part of Oregon mostly mountain, ous, and broken, covered with a dense growth of timber and brush and chiefly valuable as timber land. This part of Oregon Is well watered, and all kinds of crops can be'sue- cessfully grown without Irrigation, There is a great number ol valleys within this part of the stato, and the agricultural land therein is cxtcmoly fertile and productive. Tlits is especially true of all that part of Oregon south of the Calapoola mountians. In this part of the state arc situated the Umpqua and Kogue River valleys, noted as especially adapted to the growing of fruit and vegetables of all kinds that can be grown in this climate. This is true and applicabtc to all the agricultural lands in Southwestern Oregon. The hills and mountains of this part of the state are covered with valuable timber, and are noted for their rich mineral deposits. Gold is being extensively mined in many locolitics in this section of the coun. try, and gives quite a market near at hand for a considcrcrnblc quantltyof the products of the farmers situated in the valleys of this section of the country. The Willamette valley is the largest and best known part of Oregon, and W situated within what is known as Western Oregon, and lies sou tli from the Columbia river, extending along 150 miles to the CaUpojlla mountains, Krora east to west it will average about Co miles, and is bounded on the east by the Cascade mountains, on the west by theCoast rango of mountain. In this valley the pioneers of the Northwest first settled, This valley at the date of its oarly settlement, was noted for the great abundance and rank of native grasses!, and In this paatof the state wsb situ ated the larger number of what is known as donation claims. These claims or grants ol land were made by the general government to actual settlers at an early dato in quantities of 320 acres to a single or to man and wife 640 acres. Tims quite a large percent of the agricultural lands of this valley was acquired by the early settlers from the general govern ment under the provsslon of the donatloa law. This, with the abundance of grass, with a climate where stock could live ont all winter without care or feed other than what was abundant on the commons, doubtless induced these early settlers to depend upon stock growing for a support, and will explain the reason why they and their descendants, as many persons who came later, have neglected to utilize and put to cultivation a large part gf this rich and fertile valley, notwithstanding it is no longer profitable to use this valuable land to grow stock upon. There Is a large amount of this valley still held by the original claimants or their descendants. The lands of this valley are very productive and when properly cultivated will equal any other like body of land to be found in any part of North America. It Is true that In this vast extent of country there has not yet been over one. third of the arable land of this valley utilised or brought under cultivation. The principle crops grown In this part of Oregon are wheat, oats, barley, hay, potatoes, fruits, hops and vegetables. These crops can be grown here as cheap if not cheaper than in any part of this great coantry. Many other kinds of farm products can be grown here in great quantities and with profit to the husbandman when intelligently cultivated. To succeed and make farming profitable in this or any other part of North .- merica, a farmer should be industrious and possess that Intelligence that will enable him to correctly judge as to tho adaptob ilily of the land for the kind of crops that he desires to produce This part of Oiegon in soil, climate and con. venience to market, Is well adapted for diversified or mixed farming. I will admit that the people of Oregon confine themselves to the production of a few of the staple crops m.-ntioned. There are many other kinds of crops that could be grown on this soil and in this climate with profit. I would urge every farmer to make a speciality of those crops that from his situation and knowledge, he can best handle with profit on his farm, PACIFIC COAST FRUIT E. VSmalley, in Northwest Magazine, says! "With the supeilor quality of this Notth ern fruit assuring for It a preference over all other prunes, there ned be 110 apprehension on tha part or the growers that they will over do the business by the Increase of the or chard area. Prices are affected not by the quantltyof American fruit placed on the market, but by the ameunt or foreign fruit shipped in. The foreigners will always un dersell us, because their labor costs but a trifle and they dry their fruit In the sun: but they cannot compete in quality with our growers. Most purchasers will prefer lo pay two or three cents .a pound more for onr superior American fruit, just as they buy large, handsome, Juicy apples rather than small, wormy ones. Certain it is that these big, blue-black Italian prunes leave nothing to be desired. They ripen thoroughly to the stone; they dry without deadening their natural flavor nnd when cooked they swell out symmetrically to almost their original size. People who have only eaten foreign prunes do not know the capabilities of the fruit. They no doubt think of prunes in connection with cheap boa rding house tables. Let them try the prunes grown in Oregon and they will enjoy a new gastronomlcal pleasure. They must be sure, however, that they are not put off with California prunes in place of Oregon fruit. California raises good prunes but they do not compare with those grown In the Pacific Northwest. There Is no safer business than prune growing. If the present acreage were mul tiplied by fifty the American market would absorb alt tjg 0.0 euict. Five acres in a good bearing orchard will support a family; a twenty-acre orchard Is a modest fortune. "Small fruits cau be eaten anywhero, in season and out of season, fresh, canned, preserved and jellied. Tills is nothing new, but it should impress us with the universal demand for these acid treasures of the soil so easily grown. I am not prepared to give ad vice as to varieties to plant or methods of cultivation. Our soils aro so productive, the variety of small fruits we can grow so unlimited in fact anybody enn grow anything in the line of small fruit if they possess a little of intelligence, Industry or enterprise. There is an inmote relation between small fruits .and a highly developed slate of civilized family life. The health of young and old, the employment of male and female members, the Independence aud self-supporting ability of the family, the education, mor ality and intelligence of the family can be measured ton great extent by its production and consumption of small fruits.

The wear, tear aud strain of modern life are concentrated upon the nerv ous system". The young men of our day be come sufferers from nervous debility or ex haustion, nervous prostration or weakness. This may be the result of too much mental worry and excitement, or the result of bad practices and excesses, or pernicious habits, contracted in youth, through ignorance. They feel irritable, weak and nervous with such distressing symptoms as backache, dizziness, shooting pains in bead or chest, sometimes indigestion. The middle-aged men, as well, suffer from exhaustion, loss of manly power, low spirits, impaired memory, and many derangements of mind and body. The ill-used brain is morbidly wide awake when the overworked buslncsN man attempts to find rest in bed. The physicians and specialists of the In valids' Hotel and Surgical Institute devote their best energies to reclaiming and restor ing such unfortunates to health and hairi ness. They have written a book of 58 pages, treating, of them; maladies and setting forth a rational means of home-treatment for their cure. It is sent ttturcly tcaltd, in plain envelope, on receipt of 10 cents for postage.
