IN ILLINOIS PAPER
In aiiHwer to a Mtory In Natural
(in, a paper published at I ley worth,
IIIIuoIh, reflecting on the reHoureeti
and opportunities of the North went,
and ilood Kiver iu particular, C. E.
K ticker,, u Hood 1(1 ver inau make an
Interesting reply, which U printed In
that pnperr It In im follow:
Hood Itlver, Oregon, 4 17, '11.
Editor Natural ia,
Hey worth, IIIIuoIh.
In a Fehrurry Ihhuo of your valu
able ptiper f notice a communication
from one out west who holds out the
Idea that there are M-rhaptt a large
number of Muckers In the Illinois
country, and the writer Is particu
larly anxious to tip his friends off bo
fore they lilteat the bait and swallow
We believe that the people of Me
county are as Intelligent ns any
class of people In t'le I'liited States,
and that it is presuming on the in
telligence of any community to take
the role of a self-appointed wiseacre
to tip them off relative to invest
ments that concern them alone. c
It Is well known that that there Is
no more fertile section of country iu
the L'nited States than Is found In
Western Washington and Western
Oregon. The Willamette, Kogue
River and Hood Kiver Valleys in Ore
gon, and the Wcnatchee, Yakima,
Puget Sound and Klickitat Valleys
la Washington are without a super
ior anywhere In point of productive
ness and profitable resources.
(iooil land del red that can tie had
for from $1."0 to $200 jkt acre Is cheap
enough. A frugal man can take from
such land from to $1,000 per acre
each year. The Sears Jc Dorter or
chard of this place, the oldest com
mercial orchard here, has netted bet
ter than $nj) per ncre each year for
the past 10 years, and it requires no
specialists to care for nn orchard
here where the work Is all done
along well established lines and un
der accepted method
The literature sent out by the com
mercial clubs ami development
leugucH of the various sections Is
thoroughly reliable and the cities of
the west are not becoming parties to
any bunco schemes.
Authentic del ailed information
that Is reliable can be secured from
any secretary of any of the commer
cial bodies of the west.
If some fellow has fallen Into the
hands of bunco men and has proven
an easy prey, and then sits down and
howls calamity and lavishes advice
because he got "stung", he should
uot presume that every one else will
do likewise, and to partially satisfy
his weakness, seek to discredit the
great Pacific northwest.

nearest rival, the Singer building. The
location of the new structure, which is
to 1 knowu as the Woolworth build

which it will stand was acquired at a

Like many of the more modern sky
scrapers In New York, the Woolworth
building will seek to apply old recog
nized forms of architecture to new con
ditions. The architect has discarded
the familiar renaissance type nnd will
treat the facade In Gothic. He be
lieves he has worked out a design that
will stand as an example of the archi
tectural possibilities in lofty steel con
struction. In order to support the tre
mendous weight of forty-five stories it
will lie necessary to carry the founda
tion down to liedrock, a depth of prob
ably 100 feet lielow the street.
Among other things, the plan calls
for a large swimming pool In .the base
ment, nnd It Is likely that there will
also be a gymuasium.
