How shall 'we market our coming
strawberry crop? is a question that is
worrvinar our growers not a little. And
it is a question that concerns us all
There is no time to be lost in consider
Ine the matter. The Glacier invites
correspondence on the subject. If you
can't get the members of the union to
come together and talk over matters
that directly interests them, you can
talk to them all through the columns
of the Glacier. Mr. 8. E. Bartmess
leads in an article full of good advice in
this issue. Others are requested ' to
cive their views. If anybody has a
llan that will unite the strawberry
irrowers of Hood River, all will be
pleased to read it.
The board of state land commission
ers of the state of Washington has de
cided to submit a recommendation to
the legislature asking them to reserve
for the public use all natural landings
upon the Columbia river that are ac
cessible from the shore lands, realizing
that very few natural outlets from the
Inland to. the Columbia river are avail
able. A number of applications are
now on tile in- the office ot the com
missioners for the purchase of lands
naturally udapted for landings, but the
board has deferred action upon them
until the attention of the legislature
is called to the necessity of reserving
for all time such landings for the free
use of the public.
The Dufur Dispatch has enlarged to
a seven-column paper. We are glad to
note this evidence of prosperity on the
part of our contemporary.
The Weather Bureau at Portland
gives a report on Oregon weather of
which the following is a brief summary:
The mean temperature of the whole
state is 4!) degrees: the highest recorded
in the state is 109 degrees; the lowest
89 degrees below zero. The former oc
curred in Umatilla county, the latter
in Klamath county. The average an
nual precipitation for the state is 38
inches; the place of heaviest rainfall in
the state is at Glenora, the summit of
the ;oast range or mountains, in lilla-
mook county, where 129 inches, over
1U teet, talis aunually. iNehalem, the
same county, is second, with 117 inches.
Government Camp, on the slope of
Mt. Hood, has 104 inches, and Lang
lois. Curry county, where flgs grow, has
102 inches. A peculiarity of distribu
tion of rainfall is shown at Cascade
- Locks, where 80 inches annually fall,
while at The Dalles, 45 miles east, 15
inches, and at Portland, 45 miles west,
46 inches fall.. The least rainfall, which
includes melted snow, is reported from
Arlington, Gilliam county, where but
8.46 idles annually occur. The places
having from 9 to 10 inches of rainfall
are Umatilla; Fife, Crook county; New
Bridge, Union county; Vale, Malheur
The annual rainfall for Hood River
is about 35 inches

The prosperity of Hood River valley
to a great extent is controlled by the
fruit Industry. If our fruit is' of a good
quality, ordinary yield ai?U with fair
prices, we are accordingly prosperous.
A failure in either one of these points
and we must suffer. Now, I am not
going to say that this condition is as it
should be. I believe itj is as it should
not lie. No country that depends upon
one or two kinds of crops can be pros
perous. There may be seasons of pros
perity, times, when the crop is of good
quality and coincident with that a
good yield and living prices, but the
time of adversity comes and at the end
of a few years the people find that per
haps they have held their own, per
haps not. Indiana and Ohio, although
the far west at one time, never called
for outside help because they depended
upon a diversity of crops. If their
wheat Jailed the farmers could eat corn
bread. If their wheat and corn failed
they had oats, rye, barley, potatoes,
timothy, clover,' etc. These states
never yielded the enormous crops of
corn that Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska
could raise, but, unlike these three sis
ter slates, they were independent.
There is a hint here that Hood River
should take with profit. If this valley
is peculiarly adapted to the raising of
Clark's Seedling strawberries and Dig
red apples, by all means use it for that
5 purpose, but not that exclusively. If
was sure that hogs would be a good
price next vear it would not be policy
to put all my resources into hogs, for
they might die with the cholera. .
x have heard men say it will pay to
raise berries and buy hay; but why not
raise berries and part of your hay also,
or all of it, and endeavor to cut down
this $30,000 drain that goes out from
the valley every year to buy that that
should be raised here. Of course there
are exceptions. Therj) are some places
that will not produce timothy and
wheat and clover, but there are acres
and acres of land that have been lying
idle all these years, that might have
been producing abundant crops of tim
othy and clover without the aid of the
Hume, some of which, we are glad, to
say, are being opened up this year, and
part of the time, at least, they will
have water to sell I believe this is out
lined as it should be, but it is not yet,
and wtiile ttie fact remains, it is to
every person's Interest to accept things
us they are and use them to the best
In the first place, we may have a
good berry crop; then, in. the second,
thequaiity may be excellent. These
two conditions are, to a great extent.in
the hands of Providence, who, how
ever, seems to Hnile first on the most
industiious; but the third, more than
either of the others, seems to be given
over into our hands, and we are alone
responsible. This business, vlike any
other, should have a head. It does not
matter much how many tails. Organ
ization. Unfortunately a hard thing
for farmers to learn. 1 know it, tor 1
came t hat way. An organization of
the farmers by the farmers and for the
farmers. How will you make it? All
ofvou attend all the meetings. Put
vour best men at the head. Don't be
afraid of the expense of sending live
men' to the most important points of
shipment, and then stand uy jour
leaders to a man. It would be ruinous
to the fruit interests to -commence in
discriminate shipments. It will be
safe, perhaps, for two, three or halt a
dozen to ship independently, but if the
maioritv should commence it it will
end in disaster. I am speaking for the
interest of the valley, for its interest is
mine as well as yours. I want our
farmers to get the top prices for every
thing they raise, and I am willing to
pay that price for whatever I may
need.- This price can be secured only
by systematic co-operation . The farm
ers of Hood River valley are sufficient
ly intelligent to run their own business
in their own way, and I would do it,
and I believe the way to obtain the
best results is for every fruit grower to
stand by the one union.

Life In Texas.
Myrtle Springs, Texas, Nov. 17,
1897. "Jupiter Puvius" no longer
holds the fort in 'this part of the great
vale of tears. He not only is not in it,
but is losing prestige every day. The
youngest inhabitant can sidle right up
to the oldest and confidently whisper
in his ear: "Old man, neither you nor
1 ever saw such a drouth ri these parts
before." The Drouth king seems thor
oughly intrenched and provided for an
interminable siege. Jupiter has made
forty attempts if he has made one to
oust the remorseless monster, but his
minions are dispersed as easily as morn
ing mist or dew before the gaze of the
god of Day. It has been frequently as
serted by the papers when a local rain
of some pretensions came that "the
drouth was broken," but all such re
marks were entirely too previous if not
sooner. The drouth is on apparently
to stay. One mile west of here is. or
was, a well known spring which was
always known as a never-failer, no mat
ter who kept school, or whether they
had any school at all. But the Drouth
king ordered this spring closed up, os
tensibly for repairs, two months ago. I
passed by it a few months ago. The creek
bed was dry as a bone. I took out my
paraphrasing time piece and uttered:
There was a little branch flowing nicely In its
But that was a long time ago.
Now, it has no water at the place of its head
At the place where the water used to flow.
Day before yesterday was extremely
warm; one would have been physically
warm enough dressed with only a pair
of spurs and a paper collar. The heav
ens declared a coming rain. Dark clouds
gathered in the north and south with
continuous electrical display and a
promise of a down pour. But the en
emy was there watching every move
ment, and at a nod from the Drouth
king his cohorts made a dash into the
ranks of Pluvius, and then Boreas
swept down from the north, and in a
few moments' time garments suited to
the Klondike regions were in eager de
mand. It sprinkled perhaps enough
to fill a pint cup over an area of a mile
square. Of course under such condi
tions the fall turnip crop will fall in-
i-iast uctouer 1 enlisted in the service
of King Cotton and was in several en
gagements running over a period of
two weeks, during which time I gath
ered a half bale of the fleecy staple of
the South. There were from three to
five million of us engaged, and though
we lost by death at least 500 a week,
the army moved right along and the
birth rate of prospective cotton pickers
fully kept pace with our losses. One
woman in my regiment left the field at
sundown and the next morning at 8
o'clock presented the world another
one of these prospectives.
The continued low price for cotton is
moving the producers in away it never
did before, and the various "unions"
now forming for protection and better,
prices next year have a truly revolu
tionary ring about them. Some of the
resolutions have a decidedly warlike
flavor. One of them declares that no
creditor shall touch a bale of cotton ex
cept at the price given by the associa
tion that it shall lay and rot first.
Take also the following:
We. the Farmers' club of Viesca. do resolve:
1. That we ask the cotton raisers of the South,
both black and white, to go into an organiza
tion to secure better prices next year. 2. That
we adopt a constitution so binding that no
member will violate thesume more than once.
TJhen follows eleven more resolutions.
in which the "lowest limit on cotton is
fixed at 9 cents and cotton seed at $10
a ton." According to resolution No. 5S.
it would seem that all persons who vio
late this constitution will be made into
good members by the same principle
and speedy method recognized as the
sure method for making "good Indi
ans." This is not all. These nery
dreamers are also passing resolutions
defining exactly the terms that land
owners must give them in renting
lands, the extremists threatening to
burn dwellings, barns, business bouses,
poison cisterns, wells and water holes.
if their demands are not complied with,
do the same for editors who refuse to
publish their warnings, sow Johnson
grass on the farms, etc. Four varying
revolutionary notices on one page of a
newspaper are before me. One, beaded
"JNegro Heritors' league," closes with
this pointed resolution:
Resolved, further, That any person violating
any of theabove rules will be nicely persuaded
to leave under penalty of the strap.
The fourth resolution of the "Farm
ers' Combine" of Johnson county is a
long one, elevated in tone, devoid of
anarchistic scintillations, but shows
the deep rumblings of a monopoly-oppressed
people. Pressing into service a
part of the words of the renowned doc
ument of 1776, it closes thus:-
Appealing to that God who rules the desti
nies of man and nations for the rectitude of
our conduct, pledging to each other our lives,
onr fortunes and our sacred honor to be true
to this organization against all the powers of
corporate greed and speculative syndicates
that are or may be formed to wrench from us
the heaven-born right to enjoy an adequate
return for the labor of our hands.
As a partially relieving and conciliat
ory measure the board of trade of Tay
lor leads orT with an offer to furnish
free seed wheat to all who wish to try
sucn diversion ana get out ot the well
worn rut of cotton culture.
"Will you have a change?" said the
girl at the hotel the other day after she
thought I had labored long enough
wiui tne substantial part ot the menu.
The question is appropriate right here,
and, without waiting a reply, I wil.
simply append the following from an
antiquated Dallas News of two or three
weeks ago, solely and purely by way of
Texas candidly admits that it Is the only
state in the Union that has produced a 120
pound watermelon, an onion as big as a cheese
uua , it Bwret (nu, m tus uig tin a uwi nog,
DumDkin as Die as a molasses barrel, a turn Id
as big as a grindstone, a bullfrog with legs as
big as base ball bats, a hollow tree containing
a ton of honey, a bunch of grapes that weigli-
ea ia pour-as, a oeet as Dig as a uiree-ganou
jug, a radish as big as a foot ball , and a rooster
that could whin a bulldog. Texas humbly
makes this confession and throws herself
upon the mercy of the country.
Parties wishing to purchase water
from the Valley Improvement Co. for
the season of 1898 are requested to send
in their written applications at once,
stating bow many inches of water are
wanted and where the same is to be
used. : '
In order to sell more than 200 or 250
inches of water considerable work will
have to be done, and unless we are sure
we can sell more than this number of
inches next season, we do not wish to
incur the expense of. enlarging the
ditch. Written applications for the.
exact amount to ue used will tie re
quired. F. Davenport.
Defining a Mugwump.
While attending the world's fair in
Chicago, Mr. Richard Croker was in
troduced to an Englishmen, and in the
conversation which ensued something
was said about politics. The English
man asked Mr. Croker to explain the
meaning of the word mugwump. "The
mugwump is a new creature in our pol
itics," the Tammany chieftain replied.
"I am not sure that I can give you the
exact definition of the word, but I can
tell you what a mugwump is. A mug
wump is a man in politics who never
votes for anybody, but who is always
voting against somebody." Mr.Croker
went on to explain that it was the
mugwumps who by voting against
Blaine elected Mr. Cleveland to the
presidency in 1884. He cited other in
stances in which mugwump opposition
to a particular candidate had elected
the man on the opposite ticket.

Can it be? Has it come at last? It has.
v We will give you a show for your money, and
credit customers can see how they like it. Our new
- plan is this: We will save you from 25 to 50 per cent of
the present cost of all your Drugs, Medicines and Drug
gists' Sundries when you pay cash, and charge you the
. old prices when you have them charged. We are no
cut rate (cut throat) Pharmacy; we aim to do a legit
imate business at a profit, but t.he credit yampire is
more than any- business can stand forever, or even a
small part of so long a time, and we wish to prove to
you that the spot crsh plan pays, and, to ourselves that
you can appreciate its advantage. We shall not cut the
prices of the so-called "Patent Medicines," as the "cut
rate" stores do, and then palm off or persuade you into
buying some imitation of them put up by ourselves or
some other body, if you must dose yourselves with
them; you pay your money and take your choice; but
we will give you better medicines under that popular
form,' under the rightful manufacturers' labels, at such
prices as will convince you that profits are not all made
off of physicians' prescriptions.
Speaking of prescriptions, that's our business; we
were educated to write them and know how to fill
. them, and guarantee that the ingredients shall be of
the purest qualities only. And price! We will simply
astonish you for cash. This is no bluff, but simple
business. If we do not quote you a price, after you
have ascertained elsewhere their probable cost, that
will bring your proscriptions to us, we will take our
medicine (not yours. )
