The Ylew of Mt. Hood Not Liked as a
Steady Diet
A Chicago man recently visited
Portland and happened to strike a clear
day when Mt. Hood could be seen iu
all its glory. He' was so enraptured
t hat he expressed himself as willing to
believe the story that -some Portland
people can live on the viev of the grand
old mountain, whereupon his host
' (which must have been "Jerry" of the
Oregonian) told the following true
A printer employed on a Portland
paper. a good many years ago, before
there was a railroad lip the Columbia,
had spent his brief summer vacation at
Hood River, and became so infatuated
with the line view of Mount Hood
from a point near there that he moved
his rather large family there and lo
cated t neurit) a. cottage, which afforded
magnificent view of the grand old
mountain. . The family greatly enjoy
ed the pure air, and the" country lite.
The boyi' fished and hunted, the girls'
picked berries, and every week supplies
reached them by boat, and they were
very happy and found the view of the
mountain growingon themday by day.
Finally, winter came on and a cold
spell followed; the river above the cas
cades was frozen up; the boats stopped
running, and there was no way of get
ting supplies to the family, and in a
few days they had nothing to subsis't
on, except the view of Mount Hood.
Then its appearance changed, and it
seemed like some ice-clad demon, whose
breath was as chilly as that of a step
mother, whose object was to slowly
congeal the blood in their young veins
and freeze them to death. 'They were
some distance from neighbors, aud it
was several days before relief reached
them, and they could not have existed
more than another day or two on the
view of Mount Hood, and after they
had been rescued they never wanted to
seethe mountain again. As soon as
the boats commenced running they
were brought buck to- Portland, but
even the view of Mount Hood 60 miles
distant gave them a pain, and soon
after they all removed to San Francisco
to tie out of sight, of - the 'grand old
mountain. ' '.''
Some Good Suggestions.
Hood River, Dec. 29, 1897. Editor
Glacier: Regarding the proposition
of a cannery at Frank ton, there is no
one thinking seriously of the scheme,
as such enterprises are always located
at a favorable point for transportation,
especially when one, is-available. On
the other hand, to build and properly
equip a small cannery, "but large
enough to be of use for . Hood River
valley," will require at least from $4,000
to $6,000, and I think $8,000 none too
much to make the venture safe. But
Hood River enterprise can, and I think
ought to, build in Hood River town a
large cold storage building to store ap
ples, pears and any other fruits or yeg
egtables that farmers, may raise for
market.. This would permit farmers to
haul their fruit to town when the roads
were good and place it where, when the
market and fruit were right, it would
be available. . Under such conditions
there would be no difficulty in selling
it in lots to suit the markets, f. o. b.
here. Buyers would be plentiful if
they knew they could see fruit in town,
and not be compelled to run all over
the valley, which is expensive in win
ter, and we know who pays all bills in
the end. Hood River can put up a
fruit dryer in town large enough to dry
the valley crop, and by this means turn
out a uniform article and grade, and
pack it, and this would be at market
where it could be seen and sold f. o. b.
It Is in the province of the Hood River
Fruit Growers' Union to own these, or
rent them if the stockholders do not
feel like owning them, as they can be
built if they would be used by the union
of growers. Furthermore, if we are to
have a union in fact as well as in name,
capital,' with experience back of it,
stands ready'to put up a cannery if the
Hood River Fruit Growers' Union will
use its efforts to satisfy, them that they
will have something to can. You all
see that it rests with the growers at
last, where it properly should, and I
hope always will. . Answer.
The Man Who Laughs.
Hood River, Dec. 27, 1897. Editor
Gjacier: During your . pilgrimage
among the children of men haven't
you met persons hose presence caused
you to feel better and think more of
your kind? And others, who never
had a Kindly word tor any one; every
thing wrong and every one dishonest
but themselves? - Watch the latter. .
Benjamin Franklin had a friend who
had a deformed leg which he used, as
he said, as a barometer and thermom
eter to size up human nature. If upon
first acquaintance remarks were made
disparagingly of his crooked leg he cut
short the acquaintance; but it any re
marks were made at all in favor of Ids
irood leir, he always sought further ac
quaintance with the friend who did not
criticise his deformed leg. -
Never scold, never worry the for
mer leaves a scar, the latter makes
wrinkles on the iace. If the inevitable
comes, bear it with as much patience
as possible. Whistle, ping anu laugh.
We would much rather be poor And
merry than inherit the wealth of the
Klondike with a discontented spirit.
A merry heart, and a cheerful spirit,
from which laughter rolls up as nat
urally as the, bubbles in the spring of
Saratoga, are worth all t lie money oags,
stocks and mortgages of the city. The
man who laughs Is a doctor with a dip
loma indorsed by the school of Nature.
His face does more good iu a sick room
than a pound of powders or a gallon of
biuer draughts, if things ko ngiH he
laughs because he is pleased: if things
go wrong" he laughs because it is cheap
er and better than crying. People are
always glad to see him: their Irands iu
stinctively go out half way to meet his
grasp, while ' they - involuntarily turn
from the touch of the dyspeptic who
speaks on the groaning key. He
laughs you out of your faults, while
you never dream of beinjt offended at
him. It seems as if sunshine comes
into the room with him, aud you never
know what a pleasant world you are
living in till lie points out the sunny
streaks on its pathway. . Who can help
loving the whole-souled, genial laugber?
JNot the Dunoon and the man who
classes noise with mirth, but the cheery,
contented man of sense and mind. A
good-humored laugh id the key to all
hearts. The truth is, people like to be
laughed at in a genial sort of way. If
you are making yourself ridiculous you
want to be told of it in a pleasant man
ner, not sneered at, and it is astonish
Isbing how frankly the toughing pop
ulation can talk without treading on
the toes of their neighbors. Why will
people put on long faces when it is so
much easier and more comfortable to
laugh? Teal's come to us unsought and
unbidden. The wisest art in lite is to
cultivate smiles and to find the flow
ers, while others shrink away for fear
of thorns. - W. P.. Watson.
Christmas at Fuirview Sarin.
Fairview Farm, Dec. 29, 1897.
Editor Glacier;. A merry Christmas
at Father and Mother Bailey's was en
joyed hugely by all. Every one, down
to Baby Cora, was well remembered by
Santa Claus with nice Christmas pres
ents. ' Those present . were: Mr. and
Mrs. Fred Bailey and their baby Cora,
Mr. and Mrs. Harry Bailey, Miss Dora
Gunser of Wairensburg, Mo.; Mr. and
Mrs. Charles Chandler, Miss Ruby
Chandler. The day was spent in sing
ing hymns and tongs''! itue was taken. dinner, which consumed, a goorT
deal of time.-, it teemed like' no one
was In a hurry to leave the table, but
when tiiey did every one agreed that
Mother Bailey was hard to beat in get
ting up a good Christmas dinner. In
the. evening, Mr. and Mrs. Cunning,
Elton Cunning, Emma Cunning ami
Mr. Angus came over to have a good
Christmas sing.. A jolly good time was
had, and when the time came for all to
go home, every one wished they might
have as merry a Christmas next year.
One Who Was There.
Roads at Mt Hood.
Klondike, Dec. 28, 1897. Editor
Glacier: The Mount Hood road has
beeu getting' better every year, but if
people will keep on opening new roads
every half mile apart they will soon
find that we will have no roads at all.
One new road now on foot will, if suc
cessful, ' cost the taxpayers many a
round dollar. It is not more than six
miles long, with rough hillsides, and
only three-fourths ot a mile at the most
west of the old Mount Hood road. The
Dalles Chronicle has this to say: "By
this road several bad bills will be avoid
ed, and it will make a difference of
several miles iu distance, making it
easier to reach the Inn." That's true.
Put all the hills in one that's right.
Yes, make it longer and harder to
reach the Inn. We might ask ourself,
who is going to do all the work ou this
easy road? Oh, pshaw! we can't keep
the old 'roads iu good order, and we
don't want six miles more. Ask your
self why. The petition has two names,
and men to work the roads are not in
the country. What are we going to do
about it let it go? We guess not.
The writer has been over the ground
time aud time again; no road there. H.
I Good Enough Reasons. .
Crook County Journal. '
The gold-bug wants the largest poss
ible use of silver that can be maintain
ed on a parity with gold. If the gold
bug could be assured that free coinage
at 16 to 1 would maintain the two met
als in concurrent circulation he would
vote for free coinage at a moment's
warning. Butall history and all human
experience contradict the assumption.
As the gold-bug reads history, when
ever any metal, . in any. nation the
world has ever ftnowu, was admitted
to free coinage, the resulting coins have
always -passed at their bullion value
and iio more. The gold in an Amer
ican eagle Is worth as much before it is
coined as it is after. The silver in a Mex
ican dollar is worth no mori after it is
coined than itwas before. It is the same
everywhere and always. Under free
coinage the coinage value ana bunion
value of the metals coined are always
equal. Now, as cheap money always
drives out ot circulation dearer money,
it follows, therefore, that free coinage
of silver, at any ratio lets than the
market ratio, means silver moiromet-
alism. These are some of the consider
ations that compel the Journal to be a
gold-bug. .

For An Income Tax.
In the house of representatives on
December 16, Congressman Shufortof
North Carolina, a populist, introduced
a joint resolution to amend the con
stitution ot the United States relating
to direct taxes. 1 he proposed amend
ment to be submitted to the states is
article xvi.
The provisions of the constitution of
the United States relating to direct
taxes and the apportionment thereor
among the several states in proportion
to the- census enumeration shall not
apply to income taxes; but the con
gress shall have power to lay and col
lect taxes on all hicomes, regardless of
the source from which the income is
derived or acquired; provided, how
ever, that all income taxes which the
congress may lay and collect shall be
uniform throughout the United States.
. How They "Took Him In." ".
ftev. Mr. Chalmers of, the Christian
church at Cleveland, Ohio, recently
disguised himself as a workingmau
and attended a fashionable church in
this city. He told his experience in
his next Sunday's sermon, as follows.
"For a long time the ushers refused to
take any notice of me. 1 was elbowed
about until, even though I was play
ing a part, l tea Humiliated. .Mean
time richly attired men and women
were coming in and being shown to
seats. .As plainly as they could, with
out ordering me out, the ushers gave
me to understand that I was not want
ed. Finally they designated for my
use the very rear pew in the church."
