THE HOOD RIVER NEWS, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 1911
IT IS NOT ALWAYS PURE LUCK
that tells where to make a good investment. Good luck may be a factor in making a wise decision,
but by comparison it is not weighed in the balance with good judgment.
Good Judgment Is JVot Hindsight; It's Foresight
Perhaps you did not get in on some of the following investments by reason of an over-abundance
$100 invested in stock of Munsey's fiagazine a the right time would now pay you
a monthly income of $100 and have a cash value of $12,000. $1000 in this stock would
have made you independently rich.
$100 invested in Bell Telephone stock at the right time would be worth over $200,000.
These are only two instances of where some one must have used foresight, and yet we can name
dozens of propositions that have paid as well as these or better. We are proving each day that the
old saying, that "a prophet is not without honor save in his own country" does not apply to THE
OREGON APPLE COMPANY OF HOOD RIVER, for the sale of its preferred stock is meeting with in
stant success and that too with OREGON PEOPLE.

The famous Hood Klver Hachelors'
Cluli Im no more. When Jack Luckey
anil Will Cass returned to Eugene
after the Christmas holidays they
went Into the dormitory, thus leav
ing vacant the building erected two
and a half yearn ago by four Mood
Klver boy, and which during the
llrst year of the existence of the club
wan written up In the paper all
over the country as an unusual ex
ample of thrift and economy on the
part of ambitious student. It wad
here that these four boys, Burleigh
('hhIi, Clyde Tat tee, Albert Ourra
brant and Jack Luckey lived for as
low a eight dollars a month, plus a
small monthly payment on their lot.
when It was costing from sixteen to
thirty dollar a month to live In the
university dormitory and In the fra
ternity house. The building repre
sented a total outlay of about $75.
The lot, w hich wan all paid for the
second year, twin already doubled In
value to Its four owner.
Last year Tat tee did not return,
but two new men moved In, Kay
Murphy and Marry Cash. This year
both Cash boy and (iarrabrnnt did
not return and Murphy went luto a
fratertilty house, leavlug only Luckey
with Freshman Cass, to keep up
the house. The two lived there, but
ate two meals a day at the dormi
tory. Hut they found It unsatisfac
tory to live alone ho far from the
campus and finally, Immediately after
the holidays, abandoned the old club
house. The building Is now offered
for sale by the four original owners.
It Is Interesting to note that of the
ten men from Mood Klver now at
F.ugene six are In fraternities and
four In the dormitory. Of the former
four are In Alpha Tan Omega, one In
Sigma Nu and one In Sigma Chi.

GLAMOR FOR PAVING !
The Dalles Chronicle states that!
the engineers are now busily engaged
In mapping out the new sewer sys-!
tern for the city aud as soon as the 1
plans are adopted, In about a month,
the council will again le ready to,
consider street paving.
The mayor and council had a hard ;
time getting the paving ball rolling
two years ago, but now that the
property holders know how fine the!
hltullthtc Improvement Is, they are
taking the Initiative and Instead of
some of them fighting street pave-!
meut they are clamoring for It.
A comparison of Second, Third !
aud Fourth street with the muddy!
cross thoroughfares which are not
paved, a contrast which citizens can
not help but see exemplified every
day, explains the "change of heart."
Another boost for the cause of pav
Ing was the council' choice of ma
terial, bltullthlc. Thl has given fine
satisfaction and t o years use has
already demonstrated that It Is dur
able, cheap In the long run, not as
slippery as most hard-surface pave
ment and of pleasing appearance.
