Cloudy skies still prevail though but
little rain has fallen therefrom. The
conditions are somewhat similar to a
democratic campaign, resulting like it
also in more wind than anything else.
The school apportionment this spring
promises to be very light, this owing to
the late date at which tbe tax roll was
completed. Superintendent Shelley is
of the opinion that it will be considera
bly lees than last year.
Mr. Edward Atkinson has written for

The Wisdom drugstore at Portland

Hood River, says the Glacier, should
not complain of bard times. Our prin
ciple crop is apples, and good apples are
selling at $1 .a box. Apple buyersScome
here and buy our apples and pack them
and pay from 80 cents to $ la box. These
are gdbd prices for the best of times.
Mr. Emil Schanno, of the horticultural
commission, who has been visiting tbe
orchards In this vicinity, tells us the
fruit prospects are first class, and he
adds that there ia an immense area
plowed, and. that with propitious
weather Wasco will have the largest

Thursday evening near Celilo. He was
coming in at tbe end of his day's work
with five other men on a hand car.
Near Celilo some section hand had left a
pick handle lying across the track and as
the hand car was going at high speed
when it struck, it jumped hard, throw
ing Fogarty off in front of it, and then
ran over mm.- Two ol his ribs were
broken and his shoulder was dislocated.
He came into town and went down to
the hospital at Portland yesterday, after
having his injuries attended to.
The enumeration of the school chil
dren has been completed, and shows a
decided gain. The total number of
school children in the county is 3,814 j
but as there are a few cases where the!
names are duplicated, owing to people!
moving from one district to another, the!
correct number will be nearer 3,800.
This is an increase of '389 over last year
the enumeration then showing 3,411
This would indicate an increase in the
population of the county on the basis ol
five persons for each one of school age,
of 1 ,955. Hood River valley for the same
time shows an increase of. 89, or an in
creased population of 445. This, we be
lieve, is as good a showing as any county
in the state can make, and is an indica
tion that farmers are turning their at
tention more and more toward fruit
growing, as that is, and is to be, Wasco's
Mr. D. W. Edwards, formerly of this
city, was in town on business yesterday.

law came up from Portland yesterday in

morning, accompanied by Miss Shulthis.
Mr. George T. Prather came up from
Hood River last night, returning on this
afternoon's local. He reports Hood
River as quiet, but everybody hopeful of
a fine business season. Fruit is unin
jured and the prospects for a large berry
crop were never better. The school
building is building rapidly and will be
a credit to the town.

Buttons are not generally a very in
teresting subject of conversation, and
yet for the past two days that has "been
the principal topic. The subject has
been forced to the front, like a good
many of the buttons, by a woman of the
brigantine style of architecture, with the
hardened look of a pirate and the nerve
of Claude Duval. She arrived Wednes
day evening, and early Thursday morn
ing she began buttonholing the men
about their buttons, simply because she
had patent buttons to sell that could be
fastened to a garment without the use of
needle and thread or rivet. All that was
required was a half second's time, a
washer and a smile, swiped from tbe
Age of Bronze.
Having buttons to sell, of course the
lady devised to find men, old married
men especially, buttonless men, who
could find use for buttons. To show
how handy the buttons were, the woman
fastened them on to such garments as
needed them, coat buttons, vest buttons
and pants buttons received prompt at
tention, as with a deft motion of her
hand she twitched those garments open
and fastened the button where it would
do the most good ; nay, even the retir
ing under garment, regardless of its
decollette condition, was yanked into
sight, and if buttonless, was made but
Everybody bought buttons, and every
body admitted to everybody flse that
each individual "everybody" had had
an experience and bought buttons. She
fastened . buttons on them, and took
them by storm. It was the most un
womanly occupation a woman ever en
gaged in, and yet with this particular
person the work might not be deemed
out of place. She has evidently been in
the business so long that she has forgot
ten her sex.
