The Mass Meeting.', 1
The mass meeting of citizens culled
for last Sutiirday met in Odd Fellows'
liall, Mr. Charles Bell presided and
W' F; DaVidson acted as secretary.
A '.. rlAl.,l .11 rt 1 U.M UUIAH I a
motion to ajipoint a committee todraft
resolutions, Mr. J. H. Cradlebaugh was
called for and responded in a speech
which -seemed "to- dear the atmosphere
mid gave the friends of the ditch com
pany much encouragement. The stock
imnkH of iIih ctmiDuuv were then onen-
i-d and $2,700 worth of stock subscribed
in ii short time; Capt. A. S. Blowers
taking $.100. .Below we give reports of
the s ineeiinjr - tnken from The Dalles
papers of Ikuwduy. The report of the
Mountaineer was written by J. H.
Cradlebaugh and thut of the Chronicle
by its editor, F., W. Wilson, who Was
also present: .
' , From the Times-Mountaineer. , .
At the January term of the county
'court among the last business trans
acted was the declaring ot Hood river
to be n public, highway, and the leas
ing of the same to the Hood River
.Lumbering company, a receutly
formed organization. The intent and
olject of the lease-was to have the river
- '"improved, so lliai ii couiu ue usun
for driving sawlogs,- piling, cordwood,
etc., Ui the tovvn of Hood River. The
I ... J 1.. ....il.,... I,. ,11., nA In
fact was Sigted" before a large number
of riparian owners along the stream
had notice of the petition. Since then
tin opposition to the lease has grown
up among Hood River people, that has
the endorsement of practically every
citizen of that valley. While many
are not interested in the use of the.
stream for the .purpose of transporta
tion, evefy citizen feels that he has a
deep and important interest in the
waters of the stream for irrigating pur
poses. The fear was expressed that the
lease would give the holders thereof
such rights as would necessarily inter
fere with the taking of water from the
stream for irrigating purposes. One ir-
rlgnting company that had appropriat
fifor claimed 4,000 inches of water, but
which also intended to use the water
for floating lumber and furnishing
powerj had gone so far as to put in a
mill and arrange for logs, which latter
-.i i.. 7T i J j.. u.,:t,i:
were to ue cut aim uneu in uunuiii u
flume. The Hood River Lumbering
company notified this corporation that
it, or its stockholders who owned ri
parian rights, in the stream, would
consent to the taking of the 4,000
inches of waier from the stream, pro
vided said water should be used for ir
rigating, household or domestic pur
poses, but for no other. This attempt
at dictating to the riparian owners by

the entire community, and pursuant to
a call, a meeting was held at Hood
River Saturday afternoon for the pur
tuMi of nonsiderino- the water nuestion
Jn general, and the irrigating company
mentioned, and the lease of . the river
in particular The-'meetirig was called
to order by Chairman C. A. Bell, and
H. F. 1 "avidson was elected secretary.
Messrs. BelLJDavidson atid Davenport-,
I ; 'f ' ...w ....
jn ueiiau 01 Liig iinguLing uuuiyuii,y,
made statefhents cohee.rning the effect
the lease ot tne river naa on tins com
pany. It was all ready to go ahead,
at the t.lme th lease was made,' but as 1
tlie lessees of the river claimed the
right tinder the lease to charge for run
ning logs down the river to the mill, it
made tlie cost thereof so great that it
prevented further action.. The stock
was subscribed in such a manner that
onlv ten ner cent could be collected up
on the completion of the first mile of
Hume. As a- lawsuit would proDaoiy
have to; Ixe fought, the company did
not feel like going ahead unless this
clause could be changed, or more stock
subscribed unconditionally. , . -
From thfrf time'the discussion became
general, getting quite tropical at times
as questions and answers were rapidly
asked and answered, but as the situation
was unfolded and the legal rights of all
parties concerned explained, the feel
ing that the rights ot the community
were in danger passed away..
The stock books of the irrigating
company were opened and in 20 min
utes $2,700 additional stock were sub
scribed, which insures the prosecution
ofthe work-on the irrigating flume.
There may be' a lawsuit or two growing
out of tlie matter, but if there is it will
be found that '; the citizens of Hood
River valley are a unit on one side of
the proposition. , The writer hereof
once remarked jestingly of a jury that
"it would not agree, since there were
two Hood River men on it. as Hood
River people never" agreed. " He ad
mits lus mistake, for on this proposi
tion there is an unanimous opinion.
All realize the necessity , of having
Hood river put in condition to carry
the timber along Its" branches to the
market, hut 6ppose the granting of a
monopoly of tne river ' to anyone, as
they claim, and prove, the rates grant
ee. Dy tne county court wouia nave
done. .The action of the county court
in insisting that "the company should
procure the, riparian rights without ex
pense of the: county" puts the whole
matter in tlie power of the riparian
owners, for if they ..refuse to give tlie
rights of way, the company being un
able to comply 'with: the terms under
which the lease' was granted, will have
no lease at all. These rights of way
lessees cannot purchase.. .This view of
the matter cTjd much towards remov
ing the feeling-against the commis
sioners court, and we believe that the
matter has been fully settled. The
meeting was(a laj'ge one, being held in
the Odd Fellows hall, which was with
its ante-rooms and stairways packed
with the eager throng. . .
, From The Dalles Chronicle.
Saturday was an exiiting day for the
people of our neigli boring town. . Since
the granting by the county court of a
lease to the Hood River I umbering Co.
giving them the right to charge forma-!
terial floated, down the stream, there I
lias been much expression of opinion on
the fart of Hood River people against
the action of the court. The meeting I-
ssaturuay was ctuieu lor tne purpose ot
stock being taken in the Valley Im
provement Co ; ii concern which, it is
thought, will do "much for the develop
ment of tho -valley and town. The
Odd Fellows hall v:;n- crowded to its
fullest capacity with proininentcitizens
when a Chronicle representative enter
ed tlie room. - The topic then under
consideration was the statement made
tv the Vallev Imnrovement Co. that if
, the lease granted by the county court
were allowed to stand, tne v alley im
provement Co. could not go on with its
expected enterprise. ' . ;
Many ofthe citizens gave expressions
of opinion, all of which were in antipa
thy to the lease. A motion was made
j and carried that a committee be ap
pointed to draft resolutions expressing
the sentiment of the meeting; but be
fore action was taken, Hon. J. H.
Cradlebaugh was called upon to give
his opinion on the situation, which he
did in a most excellent speech, remark
able for its candor, good 4'eeling and
clearness. Mr. Cradlebaugh stated -lie
was sure that if an injury , had been
done the people of Hood River by the
county court, there was a . lack of any
such intention on the part of the judge
and commissioners. - The lease, pro-'
vided that the Hood River. Lumber
ing company should obtain the right
of way along Hood River, and if the
property owners did not wish to grant
it, such action would, in his opinion,
abrogate tlie lease. Mr. Cradlebaugh
was successful in so elucidating the
matter that at the close of his speech a
better feeling was everywhere prev
alent. . . :' V" ..; ,-.'.,
It Is the expressed determination of
some of the leading residents to take
legal steps to have the lease broken. It
cannot be denied that" the sentiment
Against it is very strong, though much
of the personal feeling has been allayed.
Tho legal aspect of the case wjll be the
interesting side from now on. At the
close of the meeting over $3,000 worth
of stock in the Valley Improvement
Co. was subscribed. , ,

Edward Feak was born in. South
Worcester, Otsego county, New York,
July 23, 1820, and parted from us Jan.
20, 1896, aged 75 years, 5 months and
28 days. He was converted and united
with the Methodist Episcopal church
when a child. In 1843 he was married
to Marion Hilyer and moved to Wis
consin in 1845, living there 25 $ ears.
He moved to lows-, and from there to
Hood River valley ten years ago, where
he lived until culled to his reward.
This strong, active man was a good
steward In the church; a lover of camp
meeting. His home lias always been
the preacher's home. Is it any wonder
that his children and graud children
are all Christians and that his two sons
are preaching tlie gospel which he so
loved? His last days were triumphant;
among his last words, "Jesus and
glory," He leaves an aged wife, two
sons and Ave daughters. . One son pre
ceded him to glory. His remains were
followed to the grave by a large con
course of relatives and friends after a
sermon preached by the writer from
John xiv., 2. ! Frank L. Johns.
Kaffir Corn. 7 ,
Hood River, Feb. 18, 1896. Editor
Glacier: There seems to be a great
cry in Oregbti just now for information
as to the merits of "Kaffir corn." I pre
sume some man is advertising seed for
sale.. Markley, my renter, sent to
Kansas for seed, as he bad heard it was
just what every man needed. It grew
about nine feet high, had large stalks
inclosed in a coat of mail; seeds ripened
in November. The Kaffir corn looks
like a cross between sorghum and
broom corn. Chickens picked at the
seeds when very hungry. Cattle shied
away from it as from a pile of hazel
brush. We concluded that one acre of
white or yellow dent com was worth
more than three acres of Kaffir. ' This
seed was probably sent here by some
missionary in Africa. '- It might be
well to send it back to him. ,

How to Avoid Taking Cold in Cliurcli.
Hood Rivek, Feb. 18, 1896 Editor
Glacier: "B.'s"" article on "Church
Ventilation" shocked me. . It brought
to mind the horrors of the Inquisition
and the murders in Armenia to say
nothing of the gore that bespatt'ir; the
ropes In the ring when such represent
atives of modern civilization as Maher
and Fitzsimmons are met. '. A poor,
ignorant janitor in some unmentioned
"house of God" has, for tlie want of a
knowledge of the laws of health, com
mitted a crime has left the windows
open on both . sides of the building.
"B." begins to sneeze, feels he is tak
ing a cold, and notices that the "min
ister is disturbed." He gets mad.- The
holy spirit, finding - "B.!s" bodily
"temple'' , is getting too hot for his
comfort, and pluming his wings, flies
out of the window, glad the janitor has
left it open. Instead of falling on his
knees and crying, "Father, forgive
him, for he knows not what he does,1'
straightway rushes into print to tell
the world what he wants done he
calls for a bludgeon.
"The church should appoint a com
mittee with positive instructions . to
knock the janitor down with a club for
any violation of this rule."
This thing ought to have teen fixed
up by gently taking the janitor one
side and . "teaching him the way of
the Lord more perfectly." It then the
brother had not ceased to offend, tell it
to' the church and call.' not for the
elders, but for a "committee," of which
the . mover of -the resolution : would
have been entitled' to the' chair
manship, and would have a' claim
to the high honorj of wielding , the
It seems to me that all these bad
colds and bloody carnage suggested
could be easily avoided by following
Christ. I got out of the path once my
self, when at the urgent request of Dr.
Thomas I attended the funeral of his
boy that was shot, to .take charge of
nis wife, wno ne teared would go into
convulsions. The devout "man of
God" took his text from I. King, xiv.,
13: "Because-in nim there is found
some good thing." The house was
cold no fire, snow on the ground, and
with wet feet we were kept shivering
nearly an hour, hearing the parson
trying to comfort the sorrowing parents
by reading over in a sanctified tone
two or three quires of badly written
foolscap to convince them that the
deity, having discovered in their dar
ling boy so much of a "good thing"
that he was no longer fit to stay with
his parents, but had -better be shot a
happy suggestion to parents, that for
the safety of their offspring they had
tetter be cautious about trying to niake
them "too good." . He , unwittingly
furnished a key. to the conundrum
"Why have the boys of parsons gen
erally got more devil in them than the
boys of burglars? and why are so
many ravishers and murderers, like
Durrant, Sunday school graduates
or parson's sons? He satisfied
the faithful that when the "prophet"
wrote of Israel and Jeroboam
he really had in ; Ids eye Dr.
Thomas and his wife, while their child,
shot to death by a rifle in the hands of
a playmate, was really too good a thing
to last long. Dr. Thomas, being an ag
nostic, . failed to catch on, for he told
me he was never so disgusted with a'
senseless whangdoodle in his life.
Who knows , but what the Deity
wants the janitor.vto . send Bro. Band!
the other saints to glory, who are too
good "things" to live here just as he
wanted the Jews to murder Christ?
The janitor can go ahead, fix the win
dows to suit hiimelf, so far as I am
concerned, for neither I nor Christ, if
he lived in town, would ever take any
cold in a church if the windows were
all up, and each mourner had to sit on
a cake of ice. W. L. A .
The Strawberry is (Jiiern.
However seemingly fli)pant the remark
made a few years ago, I am now more than
ever convinced that the Chicago Herald
struck the nail squarely on the head when' it
originated or thought it did) tlie saying that
'The Strawberry is ; the Queen of Small
Fruits." : '; '
, In a horticultural exhibition held a few
weeks ago In a northern city there were one
thousand plates of beautiful apples arranged
amid tasteful draptngs of evergreens not
merely as prize contestants, but for the more
important purposes of emphasizing the adapt
ability of climate and locality to their pro
duction, and to fittingly memorialize the un
stinted generosity of Dame Nature in casting
her succulent pearls among those who tip to
her decoys, capture her secrets and do by her
as they would have her do for them. In addi
tion to the apples there was also a correspond
ing display of all other fruits, in varied meth
ods of preservation, at present developed in
that region all making a display captivating
In its profusion of richness and beauty.
Passing under the word "Welcome," hang
ing from the upper part of the doorway, the
visitor Immediately faced the motto, "The
Apple is King," in exquisitely formed letters
of evergreen spanning the opposite end of the
large hall, and turning about face, his eyes
fell upon a similar formation at the opposite
end of the room, with the words "The Straw
berry is Q,ueen." : . . , '
It was a most fitting tribute to man in tho
ideal state, and certainly an eminently credr
itable "send off" for the ''first pair" to find
themselves placed In a garden with all man-;
ner of fruits pleasing to the eye and. taste. II
there were no oiher "fall" save that of being
driven from the lovely Garden of Eden, the
calamity would-be appalling. ' - . '
Apart from considerations of a "hereafter,"
there is nothing more alluring to the average
mortal than a home where there is a profusion
Of deliclously-tempting flowers and fruits. If
I were to try to picture an ideal earthly ex
istence, and one best calculated to win me
over to. "Him from whom all blessings flow,"
It would have to be permeated from center to
circumference with luscious fruits and flow
ers in unstinted abundance. , . , -. N -:
I have about come to the conclusion that
very few have anymore than the faintest con
ception of the possibilities of the higher life
the life that Is worth the living the life that
should eagerly, grasp and appropriate every
opportunity of .ennobling advancement. If
we set up some kind of standards or bounda
ries of an ideal existence, almost unconscious
ly we'are looking into or trying to peer into
depths beyond. But with all our dreams and
stretches of Imagination, our grasping at the
future, heart faintings, recoilings, fallings, tits '
and starts, there never is a time when visions
of clusters of fruit gems do. not touch the
chords of life with the inspiration of hope,
faith and good cheer, while the contemplation
of higher life receives fresh impetus and
brighter coloring. With a well-loaded gaaden
of ripening fruits, with added flowers, 'we
may, without irreverence,' slightly change tho
sacred song and sing,
"Here heaven comes down our soul top-rrct;
Ami glory Vmwns the truths -yum'iH," " ;
If yoii would get a little idea of how far hu
manity has fallen from the high state of
Rdenicweal (leaving out of sight the great
loss, according to sacred writers, of the moral
image), look abroad as far, as you are ac
quainted, aud how many , places con you
name where there is a succession of fruits of
even Inferior kinds during the whole bearing
season, let alone a profusion of those which
are marked for beauty and deliciousncss, and
which are prepared and preserved in various
ways to tide over until a new season and har
vest comes again? You know there are com
paratively few places where there is a con
tinued and unstinted succession of fruits and
flowers, than which there Is nothing more
healthful, refreshing or refining if used with
out abuse and with reverential acknowledg
ment of the Great Giver. ' " J ,
. While the apple is king, and at the outset of
founding a permanent home, ample space
should be allowed it and the best information
attainable secured in regard to plotting.plantr
ing, pruning, thinning, cultivation, spraying,
etc., It Is of course several years before one
can reap benefits only on a limited scale of
products; but tho discipline connected with
the care of the orchard in the varied phases of
tree life, and the exhilarating Influence of
anticipation to the one who heartily engages
in the work, gives ample pay as the work
progresses and development goes on. ' But
while the orchard is in its Infantile state and
its fruition as yet only the gauzy fabric of a
dream, you may combine the tangible with
the-inlangible in the most cheering, delight
ing, yea, even luxurious relationship,, by in
troducing between the rows of apple trees the
unapproachable queen ot fruits the straw
berry. The strawberry will grow almost any
where, and perhapj there is nothing In all the
realms of nature that more generously re-
4sponds to the merry click of rake or hoe or
muffled drawl of cultivator than this same
unassuming, modestly blushing, reigning
queen of the berry world. Basking In the
sunshine, or glittering in pearls of scarlet and
crystal as It emerges from the dewy embrace
of "Night, Sable Goddess," or adjusts its robes
and gems as the heavens bend with the life
giving showers, there is no queen of earth
more enchanting. Give the strawberry that
respect -and attention you would your best
friend, for it is one of the best friends of man,
and you will not be disappointed. V , '
Plant the strawberry, by all means; it will
bless you and your children to the fourth
generation, whether or not you happen to be
interested in future generations, on which
your own characteristics will leave their im
press for weal or woe, progress or retrograd
ation. :'! ..
Now, while your orchard of apple trees is
growing, you may be reaping good, paying
harvests from the same land of the delicious,
the peerless queen of the. world's fruit-the
strawberry S.T.Howe in Texas Fruit Grower.
".. Shun Bolted Flour.
Careful experiments made by Magcndie and
others have demonstrated that animals can
only live for a few weeks if fed only on supeiv
fine white flour, whereas, they can live and
thrive on unbolted flour or meal without any
trouble. The Lord intended the grain as a
whoJe for human food, and He munliestly
knew what He was doing when He created
our cereals. The food required to nourish the
teeth, bones, muscles, stomach, to enable it to
properly , digest pur food, and the brain, Is
found In excess in the dark portion of the
kernel which lies Immediately beneath the
hull, and the miller, in bolting, separates this
portion as far as he can, and most of it is fed
to cattle, horses, hogs, etc., and they have
good teeth, muscles, stomachs and bones
when thus fed. '
' The white portion of the kernel from which
white flour is made contains an excess of
starch, principally a heat and lat producing
material when taken as food, so that the
whiter the flour the poorer, it Is. One simple
fact 'ought to satisfy every intelligent man
and woman that superfine white flour is not
fit for human use, and that starvation must
inevitably follow to a greater or less extent
IU use as food, viz., there is very little diffi
culty in keeping superfine white flour free
from insects, must or mold, whereas it re
quires care and watchfulness to preserve un
bolted flour and meal free from insects, must,
etc. Do we want to feed our children upon a
flour which, will not sustain for any consid
erable length of time animal, Insect or even
vegetable life? . . v . . . -
Dyspepsia is more prevalent In our country
than, I think I can say, in any other., Super
fine flour does not contain the nourishment
required by the stomach to enable it to digest
food. ; The prevalence of dyspepsia in our
country and England has led a number of
medical writers in England and in this coun
try of late to condemn the use of all cereals
wheat, rye, oats, etc. as food, claiming that
the starch overtaxes the siomach, and that
we should use as food nothing but nuts and
fruits, and If we find them not sufficient, we
should use a little meal or animal food, they
think.. But if we use the dark or coarse por
tion of the grain as well as the white, the
stomach will be nourished 'and the whole
grain will be digested, and it will not cause
dyspepsia. . ,; '
, In cases of irritable or it-eak stomachs from
the use of superfine flour, It will be well to sift
out the coarsest of the bran for a time, until
the stomach gains strength. Coses of dispep
sia have been cured by simply boiling the
wheat for a few hours ami then eating it
chewing it carefully. Banish superfine flour
and bread and cake made from It from our
land, and there would be a wonderful change
for tho better in tt-e development of the
young, not only as to their teeth, but also as
to all the structures of the body. No parent
who cares for the development, health and
. comfort of his or ber children should, in my
estimation, ever allow a single pound of su
perfine flour, or bread or cake made from such
flour, to enter his or her house. ,. J r
I .Having constantly In view the development
-and health of our race,' I have traveled over
our own country from the East to Alaska and
California in the West, and Florida in the
South, over most of the countries of Europe,
Egypt and Western Asia, and I can say, as a
result of my observation, that wherever the
people eat, instead of superfine flour, the meal
Or flour ot the whole grain, be it wheat, rye,
oats or barley, they have good teeth and are
well developed and rarely troubled with dys
pepsia. For more than forty years I have
carefully avoided the use of superfine flour,
stimulants, narcotics and condiments, ex
cepting sugar and salt, and although my
eightieth birthday passed two days ago, I
rarely if ever fail to have a good appetite, and
my food tastes as well as it did when I was a
boy, and I have more than half of my teeth
left. John Ellis, M. D., in N. Y. Recorder. - -
