to notify Mr. Bishop, the company's
guuger, who, being up at the other end

made. The patrons ot the company
below the break were without water
for their stock until Monday.

off 7 tons, which he sold for $10 a ton
in the field. The third crop, now com
ing on, will be ready to cut the latter
part of this month, and if the weather
is favorable he will make 5 or 6 tons
more of good hay. On the balance of
his seven acres he has his residence,
barn and other buildings, and with an
excellent garden and bis own fruit,
lives in comfort in one of the most de
lightful homes in Hood River. :

plows his lund in the spring and plants
corn, leaving the ground in the rough,
with no further cultivation. The corn
makes a good lot of fodder, and after
