.ippearmg the meeting acQounun!
This much we have gleaned from the
report of thej secretary which of course j -
is but the bare statement of the facts.
The time consumed in diwussiou was
four hours, and the interest in the
meeting was unabated to the nd.
There was an air of determination
about every Individual, and befose the
meeting udjourned at least was
voluntarily offered as subscription to
tlie enterprise. We believe that 20.
iWOcan be pledged before another week,
and we feel certain that the eominittee
will make a thorough canvas, ani a
successful one within two weeks.
Ieveral telling speecheo were made and
3Ir. McCoy's illustration of what a
little water had done for his rarch met
with applause. The highest estimate
made for the proposed ditch was $25.
OOrtahd in this connections few figures
are not inappropriate. Thn McCoy
proposition was $5.00 an acre for J)J)
years. A conservative estimate of the
land subject to irrigation in the valley
is 25 sections. Now 040 acres at $5.00
per acre would amount in fift years to
&;17.000; and for the 25 sections at this
rate the total sum levied as a water tax
on this little valley would amount in
In round numbers, 8.(100.000. Can we
afford to assume such a liability? As
to the advantages to be derived from
the water there is no argument neces-1
sary, though perhaps it is proper to say
that not only will the diteh supply
water for irrigation, hut will eventual
if not at once furnish means of trans'
v aterfor irrigation, hut will eventually
station to market of all the vast bod-1
ics oi iiuioei nujucenii to uie uraucucs
of Hood river. Not only this but the
water that carries the logs to market
Avill also furnish thf power for cutting
Ihem into lumber at their destination.
Ere another issue of tbis paper, the
-committee will probably call on most
of our people, and we hope it will meet
with that measure of encouragement
that the future of our valley required.
Let each one put his shoulder manfully
to the wheel, and doing so, determin
edly realize that success is within his
grasp ami prosperity and plenty are
assured for himself and those depend
ing upon him.

A Cat Story.
Loft week when George Rordan
moved his family from near the old
millfcite below the Turker mill, lie
j brought in a box the family cat, and
five kittens, the latter just large
enough to be playful, to his home,
Of course they came down by way of
the wagon rood, a distance of about six
miles. The kittens had been born
near the flume, and as Mr. Itordan
lived near it, the mother cat at least
seemed to understand it. After re
maining in their new quarters two
days the old cat struck out for the mill,
taking two of her kittens with her,
and instead of taking the longer way
by the wagon road she "went up the
flume," straight to her old quarters.
The next night she came back and
started with the other three kittens but
lost one of them on the way, which be
ing found served to disclose the route
lifi had traveled. Now as the old cat
had never been along the flume, and as
he was taken from the old quarters in
a closed box, how did she know that
following up the Hume would take her
to her old home?

"We had some reiuarkuble experiences

"Insane claimants come to Washing

demands of every kind. Of course at

they some times gain access to the peo

that she had paid and dismissed him.
Her whole demeanor was so quiet and
