money to pay their salaries. The ap

of the bolters from the democratic po

largest wool-producing district in the
world, the wool growers will receive
pi obably $60,000, more for their wool
under the' new rates, but the people of
the district will be compelled to pay an
excess of more than twice that amount

School Money. v
In accordance with law, the April
apportionment of the county school
fund was sent out from the office of the
county superintendent . today. The
total amount ' distributed, $7,612.65,
after deducting 'tlie $50 for each of 60
districts- eufitfed to funds, gives '$1.15
per capita on the school enumeration,
u April 'OH, the amount d stributod
was $10,717, the per capita being $2.
't he greater percentage of delinquent
taxes this year lias caused the shortage
in the county fund, and us the delin
quent roll is now plm-ed with llieshfrirt
lor further collection, itls probable that
the August apportion of '97 will exwed

Work on the Ditch.
Hood Rivkk, April 22, 1897. Editor
Glacier: Work is progressing finely
all along t he line of the ditch. Bcgii
ning at the lower end of the work, 1
will mention those who have contracts,
that your readers may have an idea
what is being -accomplished towards
furnishing water to irrigate the large
acreage now beinir set to strawberries.
First conies E, Udell with his piece of
ditch, which he has completed from
the county road west to the lint be
tween O. L. Stranahan and Mrs. Aliifa
Howe. M. F. Loy, who lias the next
piece, has also made a splendid job and
will finish in a- lew days. Fred Howe
has the contract to make the ditch
from Cant. Blowers' place across S. J.
LaFranee's farm; he is doing a good
ioli and will be through by the 1st of
May or before. Next comes O. L.
Stranahan, who has three-quarters of a
mile of Hume to build. He says he
will show all the rest of the boys how
to build flume, and will finish by the
first . of May. D. Gibbons and George
Stranahan have their half a mile of
flume almost completed. Mark Dav
enport, with a force of eight men, is
building another half mile of flume,
which lie will have completed by the
middle of . next week. Next comes
John Purser, wilh his piece of ditch
from the Valley Christian church south,
who is making a good job. Alfred In
galls has the next piece of ditch. He
has been unable to do much with if, so
far, on account of t he ground being too
wet. ' Isenbergs & Co. have their con
tract completed, 'so the writer under
stands, and hiive made a very nice
piece of ditch for nearly a mile. Next
comes Mr. Kiser and his crowd with a
nice piece of work. Mark Davenport,
with quite a force of men and teams, is
doing splendid work on the main
ditch. Scott Booririan has quite a
force at work on the main ditch and is
getting along finely. From here we
jump up to where Bishop & Cox are at
work on the big flume. They are work
ing 11 men, are about completing the
second mile, building 300 to 400 feet pel
day, and' will be down to Ditch creek
in a few days. Davenport Bros , the
contractors," have plenty of lumber and
nails on hand, are running their mill
for all there is in it,, and say they are
bound to have their contract fulfilled
on time. C. A. Bkll.
The Work of the Union.
Hood River. April 21, 1896. Editor
Glacier: The directors of" the Hood
River Fruit Growers' Union have elect
ed as a distribution committee, W. J.
Baker, N. C. Evans and Joseph A.
Wilson. This committee will' make
distribution of berries to different mar
kets, to avoid, as far us possible, an
oversupply to any market. They will
see that all members have an equal
show in what seems to be the best mar
kets, from advices from dealers and our
agents. They will also examine ber
ries to see i hat poor berries poorly
packed are not shipped.
Mr. G. R. Castner will be the agent,
in Missouri river markets and Mr.T.R.
Coon the agent in Montana markets.
Shippers will receive account sales
for all shipments and check to cover,
on our receipt of same, we having
made arrangements with bank by
which I can draw On drafts as soon as
our bank receives them, by which we
avoid from five to ten days' delay r the
time usually taken for collection," thus
enabling growers to get their money at
tne, earnest possible moment. Every
member can see by the books what
every other member receives for all.

Only a Dream.
Belmont, ; April 14, 1897. Editor
Glacier: If you happen to be short of
itenis I might give you a short uote to
help fill up the paper. I have been
pretty sick lor the past two weeks with
chills and fever, but am better, so as to
tie up and boss the work again. W bile
I was sick 1 bad a dream. I dreamed
that I went to get up out of bed uud
fell on the floor, gasped three titiiesan4
was dead. I looked at myself and it
was me. My woman came to see if I
wauted anything, and when she saw
me she rallied the family and the
neighbors. But 1 told tbeui it was all
for the best, that they wouldn't have
to feed and clothe me. I told them I
wanted to be buried in Idlewilde, and
directed them lo put on in v best suit,
that it was good e oiigh, and get a dry
goods box or a boot and shoe no for a
Coffin, as it was hard times and no one
would know the difference after 1 was
buried. ( When we got to the burying
ground,' Mr. Prat her- stepped up and
said it was a disgrace to tue cemetery
and that I would have to be put in the
poor mail's comer. "Well," said 1, "1
would just as soon be put there as any
where, if you prefer." So they went
to nailing the tiox, and I told them not
to nail it very liht nor bury me very
deep, for I intended to come out in
about 40 days. Then I waked up and
found I was yet alive. Now, what I
want is for some good, inspired man to
interpret this d renin fr me, if they
will be so kind, and oblige

Dying on the Range.
Blue Mountain Eagle. -. -The
question as to what would be
the best use that the horses of. Eastern
Oregon could be put to was for the past
three months ai:d is at present being
rapidly settled, as that class of man's
wealth has perished -this winter in
cbuntless numbers. Roaming over the
range in Grant county, and in fact all
of Eastern Oregon are numberless bands
of horses that are dying from starvation
ana exposure. The winter that we
have just passed through has been an
unusually long one, and at times most
severe in tiie mountainous regions,
and even cattle that have, been taken
care of, have suffered some. The ap
proach of winter, last taJI found the
range absolutely barren, -. there, being
but very little vegetation to sustain
life of any nature.
Tiie Eagle iM informed, by a resident
of Fox valley that more strange horses
have collei-feil in the valley during the
past wiiiterNirtMi have perished for the
necessary wherewith 10 sustain life.
Fiotii Slide creek word comes that
many a carcass of what was onco a
beautiful animal can be found on the
range in lhat locality, and especially
up in the mountains near I he head of
Slide ctvek. The few that are teft on
the range are so I bin in flesh that they
scarcely make .- shallow.

"Where is Valley Center?" a stranger
asks, "and why is it so called?" We
will be pleased to act as guide for half
a day and show you where and why.
First, we must cross Hood river east
of town, and before we proceed further,
let us slop, and while gazing down into
the rushing, foaming waters of the
beautiful Hood river, reflect that suc
cess is obtained only by persistent ef
fort. When starling in life, we are
placed on the road at a point where
one ascends toward, happiness, light
and success, the other descends toward
despair, darkness and failure. So let
us remember, as we turn to ascend
the hill before us, that it is but a reali
zation of a figure of speech and thougli
the hill be long and steep our reward
on reaching the top is correspondingly
great. Reaching the top near Foss'
bridge, otie of the grandest views
that can be found in Oregon of Mt. Hood
is here obtained. The foot-hills merge
from dark green to light, from the
blue of the sea to that of the sky and
are crowned wilh the pure white of the
everlasting snow, from which, like
liquid silver, the liver descends, divid
ing the hills on either side and finally
emptying iis ice-cold, turbulent torrent
into l he mighty Columbia. On the
left, as far as the eye an see, stretch
mountains of beautiful green, w-ith
gently rounded crests covered with
blue and red and yellow flowers, while
here and there a bunch of pine trees
stands out in bold relief against, a
clear blue sky. .For seven miles a
beautiful level road runs about, mid
way of the river and the bills.' On,
either hand are comfortable homes,
well cultivated fields, orchards and
strawberries now in full bloom. Five
miles, and here" we pass the broad fields
of Mr. Mohrand Mr. Lage, the valley
widens and at . I he Pine Grove school
bouse a road turns west,still practically
level and free from rocks and bowlders.
It is. a striking fact lhat hardly a
rock as big as your fist can lie found on
the fields in the whole section of
country. Continuing west, we cross
the beautiful Neal creek at Harbison's
mills a more picturesque spot can not
be found in Hood River valley. 'Neal
creek divides this section of the country
known asJValley . Center nearly into
equalp.rts. Ii'is an ideal stream for
trout and the tangled under growth on
its bunks afford cover for many a fine
brace of grouse and pheasant.
A few miles back, as we passed (hem,
we noticed the thrifty and extensive
orchards of-Messers. Rand, Johnson,
Sweeney and Sears Then we come
to those of Harbison . Bros., . Chris
Dethman and E. L. Smith. . Continu
ing a short distance further, we turn to
our left and soon find ourselves in that
fertile and populous section near t he
Odell school house. Green fields of
jirass and grain meet the. eye at every
Mum, and the beautilul homes and
well-kept farms tell a story of thrift and
prosperity.- We cross several clear
spring brandies and find our road
again luinseaat We pass by the wide-
siretcliing hay fi-lds of Mr. HinrichsJ
and a halt mile turtheronj Mr. Rhoad's
place. Here we stop and examine a
spring Of water which has no equal in
f lie country. The spring burs's from
the hillsideafull grown siream several
feet wide and a foot or more deep. Its
waters are ice-cold the warmest days of
the year.
Across the road is the Lenz place,
one of the most desirable in the valley.
As we hear Neal c-eek again, we pass
the well-kept orchard 1 of Mr. F. H.
Stanton, and a mile further finds us
again at the Pine Grove school house,
having traveled. through the center
mid around the boundaries of Valley
Center.. G. C. B.
; , The Sheepmen Lose.
In the case" of the United States vs.
the ,'i'ygh Valley Land & Livestock
Company, in the United Stales circuit
court. Judge . Bellinger rendered a de
cision overiiiting the demurrer to the
complaint. The government brought
suit to restrain defendants from past
uring' sheep on the Cascade 'reserve.
Defendants demurred to the complaint,
on the giound that it hud been the de
clared policy of the government to allow
stockmen to pasture their herds on its
domain. It was also .iet up lhat the
government hud no recourse against
persons pasturing sheep or cattle on its
domain, because the lands were not
fenced, as the supreme court of this
stale had several times decided that,
unless owners of lands had them fenced,
they could not proceed against the
owners of stock pastured thereon.
The court held that the government,
In pursuance of an act of congress, hav
ing set aside the lands in question as a
reservation, it was no longer a part of
the public, domain, and. that the gov
ernment had the right to protect them,
and that the generally declared policy
of the government to allow -sheep and
cattle to be pastured on its dofnaiu does
not apply to lands set aside as a reser
vation. There are several other cases
of t.he same naiure in. the court, to all
of which I his decision will apply.
Defendants were allowed 30 days to
fun her plead. The suits against the
'sheepmen to restrain them from past
uring on the reservation were begun
last summer, but were not pressed, and
proceedings were delayed so that the
sheep were kept on the reservation till
tiie end of the season. It is hardly
probable that 'hey will be permitted to
drh'e herds of sheep on the reservation
this season. .- ., , ,-. . -
