In Sunny California.
Pasadena, Cal., Dec. 20, 1900. Editor
Glacier: As we left Hood River, Nov.
28th, on the west-bound train seven
hours late, wo missed the steamer, and
so took the train for Sacramento at 8 :30
next morning.' Paesing through the
Siskiyous at night, we missed the seen
ery of that part of the trip. Morning
iouna us at Miasta nod a springs, and we
run down the Sacramento valleV with a
fine view all day. We crossed from Be-
nicia to San Francisco on the largest
lerry ooat on me coast i it carries Sorty
cars. 'We spent the 31st in San Fran
cisco and visited the Golden Gate Park,
which contains over 700 acres. Sunday
morning we took the steamer Santa
Rosa, a fine boat of 58 state rooms, to
Port Los Angeles, 355 miles. We had a
pleasant trip, the only thing I regretted
was that the trip did not last longer.
Arrived at Los Angeles Dec. 2d. Every
body was discussing the oil fields. Look
ing towards the hills we colild see hun
dreds of derricks. Some of them are
said to bo set in fine front yards set out
with tropical shrubbery and plants of
all kinds. Many do not know what to
do with the oil when they strike it.
Some of the streets have been sprinkled
with it as an experiment.
At Pasadena our party was met by
Mr. Ballard. We spent the night with
Mr. Ballard and next day located in a
housi miles away. We goon had a
visit from Mr. and Mrs. Foster, whom
many friends in Hood River will remem
ber. Pasadena is a city of 13,000, with
some twenty odd churches and no sa
loons. t is scattered over some four
miles sauare, with 75 miles of cement
sidewalk and room for more. It has a
great many cement streets. The streets
are lined with tropical trees and shrubs,
such as pepper, palms, umbrella.dragon,
black gum and many others. There are
many fine buildings; one hotel thatcobi
$000,000, an M. E. church in course of
construction to cost $00,000, and there
are many dwellings that cost from 150.-
000 to 1150,000. Flowers are in aroat
profusion. By the first of the year roses
will be in full bloom. But few oranges
are ripe; the main crop comes on in
January. I would rather grow apples
in Hood Kiver than oranges here. The
trees take more care and the oranges are
picked a few at a time and have to be
washed and wrapped in paper, and boxes
cost more here. Strawberries are retail-
ng two boxes for 25 cents. I am told
they get as low as 60 cents a crate in the
season. I went to the door this morn
ing to buy some apples, but after seeing
them did not want them. Hood River
people would not be seen taking such
apples to the cider mill. There are good
apples here, but they come from La
Grande, Oregon, and sell for $1.50 a box.
The cost of living here is about the same
as in Uregon. They had a heavy ram
here about the .time we had our cold
spell in Oregon. About seven inches of
rain fell, more than they had had for
two years. It has been fine since we
arrived ; the nights and mornings are a
little chilly, but the days are warm.
The mere " .went to 70 and 73 in the
shade the first week ; this week it stands
at 65 and 70. If it werV-Jiot for the
weekly visits of the Glacier fre would
hardly know what part of the year we
arts in, us it is moro iiko may orvjune
than December. We get the Glacier
every Monday. A merry Christmas to
an. T. 1JISHOP.

Keeps me in touch with a part of the

I made a visit to that section, taking the

ited Portland, Willamette valley and
Puget sound cities. I ngree withCharlos
Francis Train, though he may be a
crank, that the Hudson river and the
Rhine merged into one can not eaual
the grandeur of the Columbia. I believe
that section already noted for its fruit
has a great luture beiore it, rich in re
sources, and the ideal home for the man
of modorate means. The imnienso water
power of the great Columbia will some
day be utilized for generating electricity
the same as Niagara has in' the East,
its immense lorcsts of valuable timber
now lust beginning to bo in demand
its rich lands, where wheat, hops, cattle
and horses can be raised for the market
cheaper than anywhere else, with the
opening up of trade with the Philippines

lhe great danaer to our country, both

of the trusts to enrich a few at the ex

from titty cents to one dollar more on

the Erie Railroad's (J. Pierpont Morgan)
purchase oi the rennsyivania Coal Co,
for which they paid $20,600,000, and
wiping out all the independent miners
who could make any show of fight.
Next to the Standard'Oil Co., which al
ready owns one-eighth of the wealth of
the United States, this is the worst blow
that has ever been struck at the poor
man and the ltian of moderate means.
and in my judgment, if this deal had

could not have carried New York. An
other deal has been made, through a
compact made yesterday between J.

two men placed themselves in absolute

business of this country. Passenurar

Hood River, Dec. 20, 1900. Editor
Glacier: Allow me to write a few lines
to show w hat an unsafe and dangerous
condition the county road is in in the
east end of the Yiento district. There
are three narrow places within half a
mile of the Con Rem n!ai whiVh m
liable to let a team rttU down an em
bankment one hundred feet. Rocks and
irt have slid into the road in nluees an
one can hardly pass with an empty rig.
t. nave oven trying ior tne past three
months to have the road supervisor and
commissioners put the road in passable
shape, but nothing has been done, and
will say it is a disgrace and a crime for
those in authority not to ha
tiling done. It looks as if thev were
more interested in favoring lumber and
railroad companies than iu serving the
public. Half the railrpad taxes would
nut the road in safe and passable shape.
Nothing has been done to improve the
road this season. I have all the proof
needed to sustain my complaint.

43 Cent Wlieut ani 35 Cent Egrgs.
Hood River, Ore., Dec. 19, 1900 Ed
itor Glacier: In reply to your query as to
what can be realized by feeding 43 cent
wheat to a 144 eg& capacity hen, eggs
selling at 35 cents a dozen, will say: No
two men, or women either for that mat
ter.can or will bring the same result from
the same hen with the ame feed. No
hen fed on wheat alone will lay 144 eggs
in a year. The best that we can do then,
is to make an average estimate of what
can be done under the circumstances
The experiment station located
at Amherst, Mass., in 1898 and '99 made
experiments with 19 Plymouth Rock
pulletB to" see which was the better
principal food, wheat or corn. We will
see what can be learned from this exper
iment that will help us. Their winter
experiment with wheat realized 800 eggs
in 5 months, average, 8 eggs per hen per
month ; with corn, 1071, or 11 plus
eggs per hen per month. Summer ex
periment, 859 eggs or 8 minus per hen
per month with wheat and 1095 or 11
plus per hen per month. Wheat was
fed in the proportion of half of the feed
which would give the wheat credit for
4 eggs per month at 35 cents per dozen,
11 cents. Wheat fed was 6n plus per
hen per month, which at 43 cents per
bushel made the cost 4 3-10 cents or 7K
plus cents profit on the wheat per month,
amounting to 73 plus cents at the time
the wheat would have been used. Not
a bad showing for Plymouth Rocks and
had the experiment been conducted
with Brown Leghorns instead, the dif
ference would doubtless have been great
er still. The most surprising feature of
the experiment, however, is the wonder
ful egg production of the corn as com
pared with wheat, a little over 25 per
cent in favor of .the former, whereas, all
tradition and chemical analyses of the
two grains have been in favor of wheat
for eggs. D. N. Byerleb.

Land of Buncli Grass.
Land of bunch (trass, bright with green,
In the days of Ions a so,
Ere the plowshare' trace was seen,
Or the golden grain did grow.
O'er all UieHe hills the bunch grass grew,
Marked by Indian trails nlone;
All their boundx In youth I knew,
When their native beauty shone.
The coyote roamed this wide domain, -
The badger digged his hole;
The antelope stalked across the plain,' v
The fox did nW his role;
The Indian roaeTiis native steed '
Un vexed by bouse or field,
Where now the white man plants his seed
And reaps the golden yield.
The lowing herds on a thousand hills
At a Inter time did roam
And slaked their thirst At springs and rills
And thought themselves at home,
Nor little dreamed of a fence at hand
Or railroad cute and tills.
To bear the freight of farming land
From olf the bunch-grass hills.
On the hurricane deck of his gay cayune
The cowboy Dlowed his wav
Through grass knee high and full of juice
Aim miiiukiii, ii, spun anu piuy.
His Jingling spurs were heard afar,
I.lkew Ise n is song of glee;
He rode by light of huh or star,
For a bunch-grass boy was he.
But time? have changed, the bunch-grans plain
Where the cowboy roamed so free,
Is covered now with golu,M)-graln
Where the bunch grass used to
ino piow, reinorseieHS, cutasunaer

And the pioneer now looks In wonder,
For the bunch grass Is no more.
