HOOD RIVER PIONEER WEARS
SMALL FORTUNE IN JEWELS
According to a New York dispatch
John Matthlesen. now a resident of
Portland, but who claims to lie a
Hood Hiver valley pioneer, recently
sailed for ICurope from that city
most wonderfully arrayed In dia
monds and jewelry. " Matthlesen
sailed on the North (iermau Lloyd
steamship (ieorge Washington.
Across Ids expansile wuite waist
coat, says the dispatch which ap
peared in the Oreironinn. was
stretched from pocket to Docket a
watch chain with huge links, and In
every link ti diamond of the first
water gleamed and sparkled. In his
cravat another big diamond of pur
est ray shone like the headlight of a
locomotive, while on two of the
lingers of his left hand were solitaire
diamond rings that a. prince might
envy. Matthlesen weighs L':!0 pounds.
.Mrs. Matthlesen was not one whit
liehtnd her liege lord In the matter of
gems, for she, too, wore a number fo
diamond rings and a brooch that
made some of her less fortunate sis
ters envious. Young Kdward Mat
thlesen also was adorned with a
diamond pin, diamond rings and a
diamond watch chain. This was
not all, for down between decks llerr
Matthlesen had a big touring car
which he Is taking to Kurope with
him. Just before the ship sailed
"You see. I take the second cabin
because I do not wish to dress up
all the time for those aristocrats: be
sides, 1 do not like those table d'hote
dinners, where t hey give you only a
little at once and It takes such a
lone time to get a meal."
