FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1S95.
The city of Louisville completely sur
rendered to the Grand Army during
the encampment there thia week. The
"Johnnies' welcomed the "Yanks" in
true southern style and extended the
- hospitalities of the city to the this time
peaceful invading army. In the pa
rude Wednesday, when 50,000 old vet-
' eraus were In. line, the ex-confederates
sheered themselves hoarse in demon
strating their 'welcome. '. Henry Wat
terson, editor of the Courier-Journal,
made the speech of welcome at a grand
banquet, in which he said: "Comrades,
for under the star-flowered flag of the
Union, ilt who truly lovei it are comrades,-
in the name of the city and state
I bid you the heartiest welcome. All
that is wanted in this grand land of
ours is for the people the plain people
as Lincoln called them to realize,
from Maine to Texas, from Florida to
Oregon, that there is nothing whatever
to divide them. -They are the same
people. This monstrosity out of which
came the foolishness of secession out of
the way, the nation having actually
had its new birth of freedom, what but
ignorance and prejudice is. to hinder
the stalwart American in Minnesota
from taking the hand of the stalwart
- American in Georgia and calling him
' brother? Both came from a common
origin, good old Anglo-Saxon and
Scotch-Irish Btock, and are welded to-
gether by common interest and a com
mon destiny; bone of one bone, flesh of
one flesh, in national aspiration and
fellowship. God made this continent
for us and consecrated it to freedom.
The transfiguration of nature, not less
than the transfiguration of blood, clear
ly indicates the will of God. Who
dares to dispute his awful word?"
General Lawler responded, and In the
course of his remarks said: "Comrades,
Ladies, Gentlemen, Everybody here in
Louisville: I want to say to you that I
accept your welcome. Not for myself
alone, but in the name of 200,000 Grand
Army men. You have given us a
', royal welcome, and I want to tell you
that we appreciate it. You are doing
more. than you promised, and every
body fully appreciates It. Our expecta
tions have more than been realized;
the greetings you have given us are far
more elaborate than we would have
believed." ' 1 1 ' '
Returns on recent fruit shipments
are beginning to come to hand. As
might have been expected, owing to
the fullness of crops of summer fruit
everywhere it is raised, prices are not
ruling high. Hood River Gravenstein
" apples of the best quality, shipped this
year to Portland, realized very little
above, the cost of picking, packing,
boxing and hauling to the depot.- This
excellent apple might be more profita
ble here if we could ship in carload lots
to the mining states east of us. Winter
apples and strawberries will continue
to be our main dependence, and it
seems hardly worth while to plant any
other kinds of fruit for shipment
The Gxacier has received, through
the courtesy of Mr. Charles Meserve of
the Oregon City Enterprise, an illus
trated pamphlet descriptive ' of Ore
gon City and its great ' waterfall,
manufactories :i and public ' build
r . lngs. . This historic bid city' seems
to be just waking to the possibilities of
its greatness. With its magnificent
water power it is destined to be a great
manufacturing center. '. ' ' '

White Salmon ' horticulturists are
taking measures' to be fully represented
at our approaching fair. The finest lot
of apples the writer ever saw was
raised by ('apt Cooke last year at White
Salmon. Let Hood River look well to
her laurels. . .
Mr. S. R. Husbands of Mosier gives
. us some encouragement that Mrs. Hus
bands will send to us for exhibition
some of her beautiful floral treasures.
Mr, Wheeler will exhibit several va
rieties of sorghum, some of which seem
well adapted to our soil. '... , ,
Premium lists will be ready next
week, and the secretary, H. O. Bate
ham, will then attend to entries for
competition, which can be made by
mull or in person. All exhibits must
be sent in not later than Thursday,
October 3d. ' ; ,
Admission fee is only 25 cents for
gentlemen for both days. Ladies and
children free. All gate receipts will be
devoted to payment of current ex
penses and purchase of premiums,.
The fair will have great educational
value-In the comparison of- varieties.
There is no mistake more common or
more serious than plauting wrong va
rieties of fruit trees. V

Hood River's Apple Exhibit.
flood River is going to have( a. .fruit
exhibit October 4th -and 5th, unci it is
safe to say that it will be -worth going
miles to- see. Two years ago, for the
purpose of getting some exhibits to
gether for the Portland exposition, the
fruit growers were invited to bring in
specimens of their crops. It': was ex
pected that perhaps a couple of dozen
samples would be shown, but the re
sult was a surprise. A little notice in
the Glacier had got in its work, and
upon the day designated fruit came in
in such quantities that the committee
was swamped. It followed that the
big armory was utilized to make a dis
play, and five tables, 70 feet long, were
filled to overflowing. The Oregon
Press Association, which was in session
at the time,-was invited, came, saw
and realized, but individually and col
lectively expressed their inability to
describe the wonders of that exhibit.
That was an Impromptu affair, yet the
apple exhibit was pronounced by ex
perts the finest they had ever seen.
This year the fruit growers are prepar
ing for an exhibit that will eclipse any
thing of the kind ever seen on the
coast. There will be all kinds of fruit,
but the justly-famed Hood River apple
will tie the chief. Every person en
gaged in fruit growing, or who intends
going into the business, should attend
the Hood River fair, for every apple,
from the original seedling that raised
ructions in the garden of Eden down
to the Yellow Newtown, Hyde's King
of the West, and the most modern
crosses and productions will be thereto
be seen. Go there onf the 4th of next
month and realize that the half can
not be told concerning the apples of
that section. -

The people of Hood River propose to
have a horticultural fair on the 4th and
6th of October. - There is no place in
Oregon where such a fair could be held
with greater success. - Hood River fruit
has already gained a national reputa
tion for its excellence. The fair- will
do much to advertise this fact. Port
The Dalles Chronicle says: Bince
Julyl, 1894, $78,800.17 of taxes have
been collected and turned over to the
county treasurer. The amount col
lected on the delinquent tax rolls of
former sheriffs was $11,430.85, and on
the sheriff's fee book, $300.02. , The re
mainder, $67,059.30, was taken in on
the roil f 1894. The amount of de
linquency will be much smaller this
year than previously. ...
The county court adjourned till Sept.
14th. As a sample of what petty jus
tice costs in this county, $1,000 was ap
propriated for fees in justice courts du
ring the past two months. Justice
conies high, but people think they
must have it when they can. Dalles

Some time before harvest, Mr. Reyn
olds of Glenwood took sick and went
to The Dalles for treatment and has
been there ever since, part of the time
dangerously ill; while at home his wife,
who was taken sick soon after Mr.
Reynolds had gone away and has been
bed fust most of the time. During this
time harvest came on, and no men on
the place to do the work. In this
emerge-icy the courageous daughter, a
girl of some 15 years of age, hitched the
horses to the machine and cut the en
tiro crop and hired men to put it up.
