Clvde T. Bonnev was over on the
Washington side doincr business a eouule
of days this week. Mr. Bonney is one
of the most energetic' young business
men on the Coast and the way his large
business is steadily growing, proves that
he possesses all the qualifications of a
shrewd and first-class business - man.
The efficient and obliging manner in
which his clerk, Henry McGuire, who
has been with him for five years, looks
after the business, adds largely to the

A number of wealthy -Portlanders.
realizing that this is the most delightful
residence location to be found on the
Coast, have concluded to build fine resi
dences in Hood River or vicinity, where
tiieir tamiues will remain a greater por

having straightened the track and im
proved the road generally, will soon be
able to cover the distance of 65 miles be
tween Hood River and Portland in less
than two hours, and this will encourage
a great many of the wealthy people of
the city to have residences here. ...

here, was also in the Philippines and

One of the many cash subscriptions
sent in from outside for the Son before
the first issue was out, was from our old
friend, . Mr. Clarence r A. : Shurte, the
leading merchant of Arlington and one
of the most honorable business men in
the state. We regret our inability to
accept the invitation to attend the mar
riage of Mr. Shurte and Mrs. N. R.
Barnhart, one of Hood River's most
estimable ladies, which took place in

already gone to housekeeping at Arling

Perhaps no man in this country has
done more for the upbuilding and ad
vancement of Hood River than Capt. A.
S. Blowers. He and his son, Lawrence,
are having the first brick building
erected in Hood River, which will be a
credit to not only themselves and the
town, but to this entire section. It is
25 x 80 feet, one-story, with a basement
the entire length of the building, and
will be ready for occupancy in about one
month, with an immense stock of gene
ral merchandise. . Mr. Blowers owns a
large amount of the richest garden land
in Hood River valley. ' Recently he has
disposed of about 100 acres, lying on the
hill, south of, town, P. H. Martin, who
recently, moved here with his family
from Prineville, buying 40 acres, and
this week he sold a 21-acre strawberry
ranch to Burns Jones for $1575, or $75
an acre. He also sold 10 acres near Bel
mont to Tyler & Saterlee for $600,
A Serious Accident.
A serious accident happened Satur
day at the Nicoli sawmill, five miles
west of town. - While the smokestack
was being raised, the derrick collapsed,
knocking from a high scaffold Frank
Knapp and E. Roberson. It was almost
miraculous that both were not instantly
killed, but they sustained some very se
vere injuries, Mr. Knapp, compression
of the skull and chest, rendering him
unconscious for twelve hours after the
accident. Mr. Roberson was more for
tunate and escaped with but slight in
jury to his legs which will lay him up
for ten days. The attending physician,
Dr. Shaw, reports both getting along as
well as could be expected.

last Monday with Miss Ruth Sturgess

Quite a number of our people went to
the harvest fields of Sherman and Uma

during the last week. Among whom we
note F. M. Hunter and son Price, I. D.

an upper berth on train No. 3, at Walla

out change of cars, and considers it the

The way the people have been rolling
the wood into the station for two or
three weeks past, shows that 'some peo

like to see you hauling wood, but don't j
forget to put up the bars twice every
load, and also don't forget to sign the
petition for the change of road.
We understand that J. M. Carroll has
secured the position of foreman for the
Union Warehouse Co., at Rufus. John

wish him success. We also learn that
Sam Stark is filling a position in the
office of the same company at Biggs, Or.

and maintain, $30,000. From there it
is rafted across the river and loaded on
cars and started on its journey to all
parts of the West this side of the Miss
issippi; but principally to Colorado,
Utah and Nevada. ' Twelve hundred
car-loads have been shipped so far this
season and to keep up with the orders
the planer and mills are kept running
night and day. The pay roll carries a
list of over three hundred names,, wages
per day of eleven hours, running from
$1.75 to $3.50. Good common laborers

1 YOUR OWN ICEMAN.
Caves Across the Columbia Where
the Ice Crop Never Fails.
. ' Oregonian. .
Ice for the cutting, and that in Autrust
and September, is a novelty not often
found in regions as far south as the
Columbia river basin; but the novelty
is enjoyed every year by people who
visit the ice caves under the shadows of
Mount Adams, near Hood River, on the
Washington side. It is a very extensive
region. Frank Mctarland, the well
known' life insurance agent, who has
just returned from a six weeks vacation
there, and at his farm near Hood River,
gives an interesting account of its gen
eral make-up. -v - , - ,
At the ice-caves, which are six miles
from Trout lake7 the stalactites are more
beautiful and wonderful this vear than
ever before, and this was Mr. McFar
land's 15th--trip there- He broke off
and took to camp chunks of ice weigh
ing 100 pounds. Pleasure parties who
come to the lake use considerable of the
ice ior packing their trout to take home..
All you have to do is to take a torch of
Eioh pine or a lantern and go into the
ig caves and pack off all the ice you
want. It is a sure crop, and never fails.
As companion campers there Mr. Mc
Farland had 125 people, who came from
The Dalles, : Arlington, Heppner and
Portland. There were also 300 Indians
camped there, who were attending to
their annual harvest of the huckleberry.
They are Klickitats and Columbias, and
they work in Shifts. While one party is
picking the other party takes the berries
on horseback to market. They sell
them at 50 cents a gallon at settlements
all the way to The Dalles, and bring
back groceries and red calico and such
luxuries, and do a profitable summer's
business. There are hundreds of acres
of huckleberry orchards up there, and
they do their own cultivating and irri
gating, and their crops never fail. They
are. the red men's friends and the white
women's delight at canning time. .-, 1
,' At Trout lake the .fishing was good
and is always good. The country, is
settling up, and new ranches, and new
homes are being made. . It is a region of
4en, picturesque pine and fir, and new
sawmills are starting to 'supply the local
demand for lumber. . ' .
Mr. McFarlaifd also made a fishing
trip to Hood river falls, and found the
salmon trout rising to the fly and weigh
