The East and West.
Monmouth Or., April 30, 1900.
To the Editor:
"In battle or business, whatever the
Id law or In love, it Is ever the same,
In the struggle for power or scramble
Let this be your motto 'Rely on your
For, whether the prize a ribbon or
The victor is he who can 'go It alone.' "
The life of the West is undoubt
edly stronger and bolder than
that from which it sprung. One
begins to understand, as he nates
the contrast between them, some
of the reasons why the West is
coming more and more to domi
nate, not merely our national
policy, but otir intellectual life.Few
men achieve distinguished success
in any line of thought, except,
perhaps, the moral detail of scien
tific elaboration, who have not felt
the touch and gathered inspiration
from its impulses. In its business
enterprises it is impatient by re
straint, the East is as hesitant of
change. Socially and politically
it is upt to cut the knots it finds
lu its way rather than wait to
undo them. It welcomes the
stranger, paying little - heed to its
birthplace or origin, careless
whether he be a friend or foe,
giving everyone a chance and
judging him by future results
rather than past delinquencies.
The East on the other hand, is
cool, keen, shrewd, self complacent
and suspicious, anxious about
little things, careful of appearances,
as easily shocked by an ill word as
by an evi! deed, earnest and
sincere when one has broken
through the crust, counting the
West rough because it is big and
careless of display, given to gossip
and dinparagement of others, but
unshrinking iu its attachments to
what it at once accepts as the truth.
Dear self-absorbed and self-complacent
New England, how little
it Appreciates the great West which
has sprung from its loinl How
stanch and true it is to the prin
ciples it accepts! How blind to
its own faults and how alive to
those of others! How kind to ita
enemies and how spiteful to its
friends. How provincial to esteem
the great brawny limbed giant of
the Occident who tramples ruth
lessly through its box-edged, in
tellectual garden plats, while it
draws about itself t..e murrtle of
insularity. C. C. Douobtv.
The recent storm in Hood River
was quite severe, tells the Hood
River Glacier. It rained and snow
ed at intervals nearly all day en
Saturday. The snow melted- as it
fell in the valley, bnt the moun

the Cascdd" Mountain it rrn-:i:.ed
for several day. Sunday was a

has been found that very little-
damage was done to fruit on the
trees. Strawberries in bloom
were killed. In some localities-
the peaches, prunes and cherries
were thinned out. In the early
strawberry patches berries had
formed and would have been ripe
in 10 days more of good weather
Ripe strawberries will be two-
weeks later on account ot the frost.
Eastern Oregon All Right,
The following is a few extracts
from a letter of W. H. Herren to
his brother Al, of this city:
In speaking of the sheep pros
pect he says:
"The lambing season is now in
full blast and we have been very-
busy and we expect to get through,
by the first of May, after which
we will drive the sheep to lieppner,
where we will shear then go on
into the mountains. This has
been an exceptional year for the
sheepman, the weather is simply
all that could be ' a&ked and the
grass is the best that has been
known for . many years, rom
about 1050 ewes we already have
1300 lawabs and as lambs are aa
good as woBtb, $2. each we feel
very much elated and pretty sure
of something over 125. per cent
profit. The sheep are also in tine
condition and are going to shear
well. Up to date they have cost
us not quite 15 cents per head to
The crop prospects are splendid!
and the farmers expect to raise
the greatest wheat crop they have
We also have in about six acre'
of garden composed of melons,
peanuts, peas, etc, from which we
expect to realize several hundred
dollars as the large farms near
here do not raise garden on account
of the ground not being adapted
to it, as it is mostly hill land.
Judging from present appear-
ances, we are going to have an
abundance of fruit, especially
peaches and pears, the trees being
just loaded with the young fruit
Tho Prosser Record says the
hard freeze of Saturday night,
weak worked a terrible havoc with
the fruit in that valley. Tb&
peach crop, which was the most
promising ever known, has beem
literally destroyed. All other va
rieties have been greatly damaged,
and to say the least the freeze ha
cost the Yakima fruitgrowers many
