Mr. A. H. Tieman informs us that
there will be a picnic on the 4th at the
Stage Co.'s bridge. The drive from
here is a beautiful one, just long enough
to make it enjoyable and short enough
to prevent one getting tired. An invita
tion is extended to everybody, and a
pleasant time is assured. .
The reason that the band did not meet
the Cascade club at the train last Sun
day, was that the body of Mrs. Anna
Morton came up on the same train for
burial at this place. The band, under
the circumstances, know that their vis
itors, being made known of this fact.will
have no other fault to find.
We are informed that the 0. R. & N.
employes at The Dalles have chartered

ket picnic here July 4th. They will

of the occasion. We are unable to learn
any of the particulars but wdl give them
Joe Wilson was up at the Glacier ho
tel this week for the purpose of determ
ining the fall in the line from the springs
to the hotel. In the morning he discov
ered deer tracks around the building,
the inquisitive animal perhaps taking
notice as to when it was time to leave to
avoid gracing the hotel larder. . A brood
of young grouse camped the same night
in the shelter of the building.
Work on the Glacier hotel is being
pushed as rapidly as possible. The logs
are all in place and every available team
s engaged in hauling lumber from
Tucker's mill, and shingles and brick
from here. . If the building is not com'
pleted by July 1st it will be very nearly
so, and it is thought the hotel will be
furnished and ready to receive guests by
the 10th at tho very latest. The masons
are at work on the chimneys anil the
roof is being put on as fast as the
James Turner, one of the drivers for
the Mt. Hood Stage Co., came down
from the glaciers Friday. About six
miles this side of the hotel, his horse
shied and refused to go further. Turner
urged him with whip and spur but it
was no use. In trying to discover the
cause of this seemingly obstreperous
conduct, he found that the horse's action
was justifiable, as a few yards in
front of him hidden by some bushes, a
big cinnamon bear was squatted on his
haunches gnawing a bone. The bear
refused to move, paying no attention to
Turner's yells, and he finally rode out
through the brush, and came on to town
leaving the big brown rascal in possession-of
C. Fritz and E. Scarstedt, of Mc.Minn
ville, and E. Crcwhy, of Forest Grove,
made a trip to the glacies, Lost Lake
and the country around the head of
the Sandy' last week, under the guidance
of John Divtr. They went out illy pre
pared for the trip and fared pretty badly.
Tiioir provisions gave out and they had
nothing to eat for two days but a photo
graph of a cow, and their sleeping de
partment 'roiiNisted of the clothes they
wore helped out with the saddle blank
ets and their handkerchiefs. They went
out for the purpose of getting photo
graphic views, and claim to have some
very fine one, among them a view of
Mt. Hood and its reflection in Lost lake.
One of the eentlemon remarked to us,
that it would be a long time before views
are taken from the same points as many
of theirs, because no one would inten
tionally go where they did.
Eye glasses at Prather's.
The Baseball Game.
Last Sunday the Cascade base-ball
club came up for a friendly contest on
the diamond with the Hood River boys.
After a spirited contest the Cascades
had to lay down the bat and yield the
victory to the Jlood Kiyer club.
On the arrival of the Cascade nine
the brass band which was to have met
them was made conspicuous by its ab
Benco. The Hood River boys did not
meet the Ca3caders at the train as they
should have done to give the strangers a
nearty welcome. On the the held there
was too much wrangling and the boys
must learn to play ball, leaving all dis
putes to the umpire and their captains,
The Cascaders were in a measure handi
capped by their catcher having to leave.
also by the retirement of their right
fielder. 1 he batters of both nines were
good and did good work.
Hood River's 1st base and center
fielders did noble work. The 1st base1
man of the Cascades plays the the posi
tioniwell. The fielding of both nines
need practice, which we presume in
time will be perfected. Take- it all to
gether the Cascade nln are the best
players, and some very costly errors lost
the game tor them, ana we promise you
the Hood River boys will have to look
well to their laurels and practice hard if
they intend to wm the next time.
The scorers were very poor indeed,
hardiy worth mentioning. The umpire,
although making some mistakes, did
fairly well. The infalliblo umpire has
not yet been born. It was a good game
and well played. Xion.
- The Wasco Taken Over.
The steamer Wasco -was taken over
the Cascades Saturday afternoon at 3
o'clock. Captains Troupe and Coe made
quite a thorough examination of the
rapids before they started with her, as
the water is very low. She went over
all right,1 however, the only damage
received being the lifting of her forward
guards." She made the run to the
Lower Cascades in twelve minutes
The following is a list of the crew and
others who went over on her. Captains
Troupe and Coe, S.D. Fisher, first mate ;

Editor Glacier : ,
In your first number I noticed some
sayings you published of a bright little
4-year-old. Here's another one by the
4-year-old in our house :
I was trying to teach her some ques
tions out of the Bible one day, and,
among other things, told her Adam was
the first man, She had not shown much
interest until then, when she' looked up
quickly and said "Adams, Dr. Adams,
Oh yes, I know him I Did God make
him first? B
One of our old residents who is a strong
believer in the efficacy of salt in the culi
nary department, considered it equally
valuable when applied to arboriculture,
consequently he irrigated several fine
cherry and shade trees with a barrel of
ancient beef brine, lhe result can
hardly be ragarded as a brilliant success
in benefitting the trees, but they will
make an excellent article of stove wood.
Vap philosophically remarked, "I have
learned that now." yuiiiY.
