Monday the berry shipment reached
244 crates of 24 boxes each, or 5,856
boxes, which, at 14 cents, the average
price, would mean $819.84. The cold
weather has cut the yield, or it would
have made by this time 400 crates,
which number will probably be reached
The Union Pacific would do well to
put in a side track from the section

Constable Olinger stopped a youthful
couple of runaways, brother and sister,
last Sunday. They were from the Cas

thirteen, had dressed herself in a suit
of her brother's clothes, and the two
were riding blind baggage for the East.
They were taken off the train and sent
home at once, where, if they knew any
thing at all of the uncharitable world,
they would stay. , . . ' .
Wednesday was a showery day, do
ing some damage to th ripe strawber
ries, but making it possible for a den
izen of this favored spot of earth to get
some of the products of it. As a mat
ter of fact, Hood River strawberries are
more abundant in the Helena market
than here. -The slight damage to the
berries was more than olt'set by the
good done to other crops by the rain.
The trainmen here have been com
plaining of the berry crates not being
piled close enough to the, track, and
Thursday night Mr. Coon undertook
to please them, the result was that
when the train came in .the corner of
the car struck the boxes upsetting them
onto Mr. Fouts, bruising him severely
About $25 worth of berries were de.

Hon. E. L. Smith sold the 40 acres
on Indian creek formerly belonging to
Samuel ('lark, Wednesday, to H.Gray,
H. E. Wiley, E.. B. Clark , and E. C.
Wiley, for $2,000, an Increase of over 50
Fer cent. In- value since last summer,
n this connection it is appropriate to
state that nearly all transfers of farm
property in the-valley have been of
lands situated along Indian creek.
This is a silent yet powerful suggestion,
as to the needs of the valley. The
watei privileges, small though they
are, have sold the lands.
We have heard several times that
some of the residents on the East Side
are of the opinion that the Glacier is
inimical to that side of the valley. A
moment's thought would convince any
reasonable person that there is no foun
dation for such an idea. Our support
comes largely from that side, and of
course the greater population and pros-
Ferity on that side the better for us.
t is true we have refused to publish
several communications from that side.
just because in our opinion they were
not just tne tiling to puniisn in tne in
terest of the valley, just as we have re
fused to publish them from this side,
but the reasons were good and suffi

Mr. Cordes tNuid were packed in layers

While Hood River gets the credit of
all berries shipped from this point, it
should not be forgotten that our neigh
bors across the river at "White Salmon
furnish a goodly i number of them.
Palmer, Brooks, Suksdorf and others
add daily to the' shipments, and their
berries are first class, too. The fact is,
White Salmon, like Hood River, is one
of the finest of fruit countries, and, as
it becomes known, will be thickly set
tled. With a railroad down the north
side of the river, or even a steamboat
line that will run the entire season,
White Salmon will be, one ot the most
important, as it is one of the best points
on the river. ..
A Narrow Escape.
. Decoration day came near furnishing
a fatal accident in the shape of a run
away. Mr. Stewart, accompanied by
his mother, Mrs. E. L. Sniith, Mrs.
Georgia Rand and little Dot Watt were
returning from the cemetery, where
they had been decorating graves, about
10 o'clock in the morning, and when
near the old Luckey place they met D
company on its way down. The horse'
took fright at the flag and became un
manageable. Mr. Stewart pulled her
out of the road among the rocks, think
ing to stop her, but instead the buck
ooard was .upset and the entire party
thrown out. The wheels passed over
Mrs. Stewart's back, injuring her se
verely, and Mrs. Smith was thrown so
that she fell on her arm, shoulder and
head, bruising her badly. . Mrs. Rand
was also badly bruised, but we are glad
indeed to state that a little time and
arnica will repair all damages. , rU
4 ' , . Why lir Yon Not Sing ?
' The above question has been asked
me by a number of persons that knew
we had prepared to sing on Decoration
dayju connection with the G. A. R.
celebration at the school house. And
the only answer I could give the in-,
quiring parties. was, I . do not; know..
And the other members of the song
can only say as much. But I would
say that the M. E. Sunday school was
kindly invited to sing a song Decora
tion day and it kindly accepted the In
vitation, willing to do all it could to
render the occasion a joyful one, and so
eight of the older members of the Sun
day school practiced a piece to sing,
and came to the ground fully prepared
and waiting to be called upon at any
moment, but finally it was aunouncrd
that the literary programme was fin
ished, so we were left In the cold. '
Why did you not sing? I do not
know. Perhaps the reason' Was that
they were ' afraid that if we ap
peared upon the platform we Would be
come sunburned. Or, the reason may
be that the person or persons that had
charge of this part of the programme
were afraid that we might from open
ing our mouths catch cold. Or, the
person or persons in charge of the ex
ercises may have thought that our tal
ent would disgrace the occasion. We
admit and acknowledge that we are
not professional singers, neither do we
profess to be. We did not offer our
services, but were invited. And as a
member of the song I feel highly en
couraged by being thus publicly ig
nored. Why did you not sing? I do
not kuow. ' A Me;
