SETTING A MARK FOR 113 Work will soon be started on the numerous projects which are to con tribute to Hood River s prosperity dur ing the present year. Street paving will be undertaken with as little delay as possible. The last of the month will also see work started on the municipal water system. It the proper financial support is received, construc tion of the cannery and evaporating plant will also be undertaken early in the spring. The Pacific Power & Light Company has opened offices here 'and intends to prosecute the work on the power project as expeditiously as possible. All of these undertakings make bright prospects for the commercial welfare of Hood River during 1913. There will be a substantial payroll every mouih abd it will tend to re lieve any financial stringency which may exist. If such a payroll or steady Income could be made permanent the benefit would be proportionately great er and a number of ways are being suggested by which such a condition might be brought about. Encourage ment of the dairy industry is suggest ed by some who have learned how much cash is sent out of the county every year for dairy products. The amount is startling, especially so at the prices which now prevail. They would encourage the establishment of a creamery, so that these products might be produced sufficient at least to supply local consumption. Greater diversity of production by local ranchers is also being suggested. Attention is often called to the fact that many of the orchardists do not even keep a garden to supply their ev eryday needs in the vegetable line. Those interested in keeping money at home say that if gardening were car ried on more extensively the ranchers would not only place themselves in a more independent position but save considerable of their current house hold expenses during the year. Thousands of dollars are sent out of the valley each season for poultry products and the boosters would also foster this industry in the valley, if not on a commercial basis at least suf ficiently to supply the home consump tion. Greater diversity of farm prod ucts in the valley is now being looked upon as a goal towards which all may profitably work. Not the least important among the possibilities which the future has in store is the establishment of manufac turing industries adapted to this local ity which would provide employment the year round and create a payroll. In securing and encouraging the in dustries mentioned above no other agency is so well adapted to perform a valuable public service as is the Commercial Club. It is this organiza tion through which the necessary co operation can be secured. If the present year sees some pro. gress made towards this mark It will have been a prosperous and success ful one from more than a temporary standpoint Speaking of the difficulties In the way of Wilson's plans to obliterate sectional lines, we have heard of some of those sweet Dixie girls who are such unreconstructed rebels that they won't even wear a union suit. At present' Mr. Wilson seems to be what Diraell said Gladstone was "a man without one redeeming vice. ' But the duties of his exalted office may save him. Milwaukee has done away with so cialism. Socialism was not really what made Milwaukee famous, any how. Wllmer Sieg did the stunt. Frank A. Munsey advises the Repub. licans and Progressives to I jse. Col onel Roosevelt and Gl fiord Plnchot are advising the Progressives to refuse. The rumor that hoop skirts are com ing back next year may be only a wicked plot to discredit the Democrat ic administration. Don. Jorge Wickersham has dropped his suit against the coffee trust as he has found that there were no grounds. The folks who are Introducing bills in the legislature apparently have no Idea of the law of supply and demand. "It did Jack no good to marry his stenographer, for she continued the habit of the office in their home." "How ior "When be starts to dictate she takes him down." "I am very uneasy, I am sure my wife has gone out without her um brella." "Oh. sh will certainly aeek refuge In a department store." "That's what makes m uneasy." S2.28 A CRATE IS STRAWBERRY AVERAGE At the annual meeting of the White Salmon Fruit Growers' I'nlon the sec retary's report showed that the I'nlon had made sales to the amount or $33,727,000 the past year; sales for the preceding year were 118.000.00. The gross cost of conducting the merchand ise part of the business was $4309.72. Sale of strawberries totalled $31,138 82; I'nion profit on handling the ber ries, $342.92. Average price of berries $2,284 a crate: for a number of crates lower grade, $1.35. At the afternoon session, a motion was passed to limit credit to 30 days, after which an account must be cover ed by note at 10 per cent or by lien on the crop. The board of directors elects a pres ident, secretary and manager. Who will be manager Is not settled. George Newton announced before election of the new board that he would not be a candidate for the position. No report could be made on sale of apples as the fruit is only partly sold. During the past year the Union has put up a large warehouse and apple house at a cost. Including lot, of $4,000. It also owns a warehouse on the track near the station. THREE SERMONS REVIEWED (deferred from last week) It Is a condition not a theory that confronts us was the central thought of two very able and appropriate ser mons by clergymen of this city la9t Lord's Day. In the forenoon Mr. Mac Donald of the Unitarian church preach ed a very forcible sermon on the re ligion of capitalism, which was on edu cational lines. He will follow it up next Sunday with another sermon on the religion of socialism. The other sermon was by Rev. J. B. Parsons at the Oak street U. B. church on the menace and evils of factory and sweatshop child labor. Mr. Parsons brought his points out clearly and clinched the facts with official statistics and reports. While this was being done Rev. Harris wa demontratlng by Illustrated methods the condition of industrial classes in New York City and parts of Europe. "The world does surely move" when the clergymen have turned their atten tion toward the condllon of God's poor and begin to seek for and advise the application of practical or applied Christianity for the betterment of the industrial classes instead of increasing the overgrown fortunes of the already very rich. M. T. F. WHITE SALMON (From the Enterprise) Herbert Day has purchased a home at Glendale, California, and intends to make that his home part of the year. B. C. Hamilton of Trout Lake left for Toledo, Ohio, Wednesday, where he will remain for a few weeks. While driving through the timber the other day, Mike Zimmerman saw a coyote floundering in the deep snow. He bad no gun, but procuring a club killed it, taking the scalp for the boun ty. Billy Weir, formerly of this place sent J. Mayhew a picture of one of the largest sturgeon ever taken out of the river. It was captured near Ca mas, measured over 11 feet, weighed 644 pounds and sold for $80. While on her way to school on the heights the other day the little daugh ter of George Beetsch heard a cry like a cat an) turning saw reclining on u log close by a cougar. She made an outcry and turned and ran. The coug ar did likewise making for the brush in the opposite direction. Its tracks have been seen in the neighborhood and the ranchers are on the lookout for it. The bill creating Cook county but of the western part of Klickitat coun ty has passed the senate, 38 to 1. It la now up to the house, and the over whelming sentiment in the senate fav oring the bill should have a strong In fluence on the house. Of course Mr. Brooks may endeavor to strongarm It in committee and the outcome is awaited with interest. The bill as passed made no change In the original boundary line between ranges 13 and 14. LOOK HERE FOR CAKE MAKER Having traveled from Hot Springs, S. J., to Hood River, Mr. and Mrs. Frank James were disappointed yes terday when they failed to locate In this city Thomas Williams, who for a number of years was a local baker. Williams furnished the wedding break, fast for Mr. and Mrs. James nearly a quarter of a century ago. On their tour of the West Mr. nd Mrs. James wanted to visit their former friend. On learning that he had moved to Eugene three years ago, they went to that city. Portland Telegram. Glllet Anything eccentric about the Mary children? l' .ry Yes, they mind. The News for good printing. WILL TAP CLEAR ANDJJJST CREEKS Having prevented further construc tion at this time of the road through the Bull Run reserve, Portland is now contemplating an extension of its wa ter system by constructing auxiliary pipe lines to the Clear and Lost Creeks to connect with 'the Bull Run conduits 20 miles distant. If this is done it will probably have the effect of rendering less likely the construction of this scenic road which would give the Upper Hood River Valley an out let Portlandward. According to Chief Engineer Clatke of the Portland Water Department this additional supply would give Portland 108,500,000 gallons of water a day. While these streams are in the Bull Run reserve, they do not drain into the Bull Run River, from which the city receives its supply of water. The water readily can be converted through a conduit into the present Bull Run conduits at no enormous expense. The engineer urges that there be ab solute exclusion of everything from the reserve which would In any way tend to jeopardize the water in the Bull Run. In this regard he says: "Permanent seclusions of all por tions of the reserve is an Important necessity if the purity of our water Is to be maintained at Its present high standard, which for 20 years has been one of Portland's most valuable as sets. The reputation of the city in this respect should be mainained at all cost. No other city in the land is so highly favored as Portland in being able to secure its water supply from an entirely uninhabited and forest-clad region." SHAKE1 Here's Something That Is Coming Our Way In engaging the justly famous Schu bert Company of Chicago to give one of their delightful entertainments here the Elks can congratulate themselves upon securing an additional and entire ly unexpected feature of the greatest excellence. For it so happens that Miss Frances Rhinehart, the eminent harp soloist, Is making the concert tour of the United States in company with the Schuberts and will positively be heard here with them on February 11 at Hellbronner Hall. Keep this In mind for, although she is not adver tised on the Schubert's program or printing, she will be here with them and add two great solos to their fine program. It our good luck that she is visiting her musical friends at the time they happen to appear in Hood River, Oregon. Tickets on sale at Clark's Drug Store. STEP RIGHT UP AND PAYJOUR TAXES Taxes are now payable. Extension of the county tax roll was completed the last of the week, H. L. Francis having been engaged on the work for the past several weeks. County Clerk Hanson turned the roll over to Sheriff Johnson Friday morning and the lat ter at once started sending out his statements, practically all of them now being in the malls. S. W. Heppner successfully sustain ed his past record as being the prompt est taxpayer in the county. Within 15 minutes after Sheriff Johnson had re ceived the roll Mr. Heppner stepped up to the desk and produced the coin for his taxes.

"Whatever induced you to accept Toady Johnson?" said Ann ette. "Oh why well," said Mabel, "you see Toady put his arm around my waist, and to tell the truth, I yielded under pressure. European skirmishes now take sec ond place to the battles being fought at Salem Oregon potatoes are now In demand. NEW YORKER URGES APPLEJUBLICITY Newspaper advertising is regarded, by Charles A. Muehlbronner. an apple distributor of New York, as a prime necessity in the marketing of apples. At the recent meeting in Cincinnati of the National League of Commission Merchants, he expressed his views on the subject in part as follows: "The great problem that confronts the producer in the Northwest, as well as the Middle West and the Atlan tic seaboard, is how to get the im mense production into distribution and consumption. In the days of Pharoah, it is said of Joseph, that in the years of plenty he stored up the food for the seven years of famine and brought all countries to his warehouse, lie sup plied those that were In need, and was considered a wise and discreet man. Those ancient days and methods ara no more. This country cannot have a famine such as came every seven years in those days, but it will require wisdom, discretion and modern meth ods to put into consumption yearly the vast crops that will come forward increasing from year to year. "It is a well known fact that when markets are glutted there is practi cally no sale, and this applies to any food commodity, but there is a sound, sane, convincing way when properly worked out and carefully considered by which a demand can be created. Judicious advertising, convincing read ing that will attract the consumers' eye, and make interesting reading mat ter, telling him how abundant the crops are, how they can be bought at low figures, how healthful and nour ishing the fruit is. You will Bay that this increases your expense in run ning your business, which is true, but how would the bargain counter ever hold any attraction if It were not for the special ads in the daily papers, and you do not imagine either the bargain counter sales are made at a loss, and neither would fruit bargain sale. "Retail shopkeepers are averse to making special fruit line sales, but they must be brought to realize that it Is just as profitable to specialize fruit sales as to make a special of anything else. Quick sales and small profits should be the slogan of every fruit merchant, be he wholesaler or retailer. The public should also be educated to know what apples are seasonable and not to be persuaded to buy winter ap ples in September, October or Novem ber." Would Make a Dandy Grocer "I am willing said the candidate, after he had hit the table a terrible blow with his fist, "to trust the peo ple." "Gee," yelled a litle man In the aud. lence, "I wish you'd open a grocery." Grangers are happy. Their bill has passed the House.
