N more delightful or healthful nlarw of residence crmld he honed :.r- 1 - t for, and none where nature v more willingly lends her aid to the efforts of man to- surround himself with the beauties,, luxuries and food pro ducts of the vegetable world. The iriver is a stream of pure mountain water,, flowing- northward, from its fountain! head amid the melting snows and elaciers of Mt. Hood". , &nd;es roaring over the rocks with a urn ia 4 t t- -i ha haavH Vi y j mountains above, till it finally sinks to rest in the bosom of the Columbia, about midway between the cascades and the dalles.

' The waters, fed by the and cold during the entire summer that the fish taken from them are ' hard and delicious." To the north, across the Columbia, can be seen from town White Salmon iriver, heading among the snows of Mt. Adams, and winding through tor- iiTOiia wn vti nut fchi'mitrri . ihe mrmn- . e r-. tains,, and lashing itself into foam . T 1 11 if 11 ?1 A J I over nuge oouiaers, un ii enters me Polij.mbia.. On eit.Vier side of White Salmon river, running up from the CWutrrbia, are mountains rising from 20(10 to 3f)00 feet, with ln.rfe patches of prairie, dotted with farms and ' pastured with stock. . The cene is grand, and to a poet, sim ply inaiscriDaoie. Many an invalid has restored his health, and many a man infirm with age has almost renewed the tigor of his youth, by surrendering himself to the full enjoyment of the pleasures ' the mountains and stroams afford, and by breathing the life-giving atmosphere. Dur-1 ing the summer, the wind comes in strong, mild breezes up the Colum bia, direct from the ocean. Hot, relaxing weather is - not known here. The country . and climate seem to be fascinating. People sometimes settle here for a time, when their migratory instincts in duce them to go somewhere else; but they almost invariably return. The railroad crosses the river near its mouth, and a short dis tance above is the charming little city ot Hood Kiver, built m a natural grove of magnificent oak and trees. It is a thrifty vil lage of about 600 inhabitants, with perhaps 2000 industrious settlers in the valley immediately surround ing the town. This is the shipping and supply point for the many prosperous settlers in the valley, and enjoys a good and rapidly in creasing trade. The Valley is" re nowned for its wonderful fertility, for the size 'and quality ; of its vegetables and the superior excel lence of its fruits and berries, be ing noted from ocean to ocean for its production of strawberries and apples. Peaches are superior in flavor to those of California. Soft shell almonds are equal to the fa mous ones of Chili, and apples are of such superior size and flavor, that even the Willamette Valley, that famous land of "big red ap ples," has to take a back seat. The air is of such crystal clear ness that Mt. Hood, 22 miles south west and Mt. Adams, 40 miles to the north,' both . glistening with eternal snow, and both in plain view of the town, appear 'as though they were only a few miles distant. The tourist seeking a few days of rest in a paradise of nature, the overworked business man seeking a relaxation . from mental toil, the sportsman and the invalid, will all find all that heart can desire in Hood river valley; while the immi grant, seeking a place where patient toil and intelligent industry may build a home for himself and family, will need to look no further for the golden opportunity. . . V - There are many magnificent homes in and around Hood River, notably those of Dr. W. L. Adams, W. P. Watson, Capt, H. C. Coe, Hon. J. W. Morton and Capt. A. S. Blowers, about which the Sun will have more to say later on. , - Among the grandest and most beautiful .homes in Oregon is that of Dr. Adams, just west "of : town. The Doctor is an old pioneer, hav ing driven.his own ox team across the plains in 1848. After several years of travel through North, Cen tral and South America, taking in the Sandwich Islands, and Califor nia, he selected Hood River valley as the most desirable place for a home he had yet found. To sum it all up, in the words of an intelli gent lady artist from Australia, "I have been all over the world, and I never saw as beautiful a place as Dr. Adams has in Hood River val ley." : Hood River has a gravity system of waterworks, which are supplied from a large, never-failing spring, at an elevation of 250 feet above the town. The water has been analized and pronounced to be the purest and best in the world. ' vThere has as yet been no electric light System established here, but likely will be soon. There are, how ever, a number of individual acety lene gas plants in operation. Hood River's social advantages are as desirable as can be found anywhere. There are three beauti ful church edifices here Congrega tionalist, Methodist and United Brethren all strong, vigorous and healthy societies. Our graded school, of six (depart ments, is one of the very best in the state,the magnificent new build ing costing nearly $10,000, and the school isunder the supervision of as able corps of teachers as can be found. - Hood River is an ideal place of residence; a lovely little city of homes, churches and schools. . . Owing to the dense population around;. Hood River, this section has been favored with the rural free delivery daily mail system, a distinction - not enjoyed by any other place of its size jn the western country. Credit for this great con venience is due Hon. E. L. . Smith, one of the. most respected and prominent pioneers of the' town, who has been for many years prom inently identified with local and national politics, and who is very popular with the administration at Washington. All lines of business are repre sented here and those who are best able to judge, confidently predict a very rapid growth for Hood River, from this time on; and that it will doubtless double in " population within the next year All who are interested in the up building and advancement of Hood River and vicinity should do all in their power to encourage good citi zens and newcomers who come here to reside and spend their money making improvements, - thus en hancing the value of our own prop erty. Do not let us impress the stranger with the idea that, because we were fortunate enough to locate here first, no one else has any right to come here. . . Such selfishness never built towns or cities. Let us extend a welcome hand to the new comer, and in helping him we help ourselves. ' : -- .rvi Hood River is already one of the best towns on the Pacific Coast, and is sure to become a .great deal bet ter town in the near future. It is pronounced by' those who : have traveled the world over, to have the most delightful elimate in the world, not even excepting that Italy; it being a happy medium between the extremely dampclim ate west of the Cascade mountains and the extremely dry climate east of the mountains. . lhe place rightfully termed "The Paradise of America." There are always many annoy ances and unlooked-for difficulties encountered in getting out the first issue of a paper. The Sun , has been "up against" every one on the list, and added others.
