Logan Wood of Viaeton, I. T., writes
letter of the kind often received by tlie
Glacier. He says:
I saw in the South McAlester Capital
a letter from Hood River, which
caused me to w ant to know more about
your country. "
1. What it the coldest weather you
2. What kind of grain do you growT
3. How is the water?
4. What is lumber worth?
fr. What kind of range have you for
stock? - ' ' .
6. What is the price of cattle ana
what are good mules and cattle worth?
7. Do you have to irrigate to grow
crops? . - '
1 am coming to Oregon in the spring
and want to learn all I can about the
country. -
1. The coldest we have had in Hood
River this winter was ero weather
two weeks ago, when the severe cold
lasted a week, about as long as it usuOfTy
lasts. At this writing the thermometer
is alxtve 40.
2. Very little grain is grown in Hood
River valley, but when it is grown,
wheat, rye and barley never fail to pro
duce good crops. The land is too val
uable for growing crops other than
fruit. We grow apples, pears, peaches,
plums, prunes, quinces, cherries, straw
berries, blackberries and raspberries.
Apples and strawberries are our prin
cipal crops. Our fruit has a reputation
for excellence all over the United States.
We grow the best strawberries in the
world. They have been shipped to the
Klondike and to China and arrived in
fair condition.
The Oregonian showed up the crook
edness of a commissioner of Multnomah
county in selling goods out of his store
to the county without due observance of
1 iw, and now the commissioner has sued
the paper iif the modest sum of $50,000.
Up to January 31st, the state of Ore
gon had paid a bounty of 2 on 84,644
coyote scalps. The law will remain in
force another year, by which time, it is
estimated by Secretary of State Dunbar,
the state will have paid $250,000.
" Why Should I Join the Grand Arm;
of the Republic V
The "above question is ably and elo
quently answered by a leaflet sent out
from the headquarters of the Grand
Army for Oregon. It is well worth the
perusal of every Union soldier outside
the ranks of the Grand Army. We
give it in full :
Dear Sir: The pertinent question yon
address to yourself in the caption of this
note it is the purpose of this little
leaflet to answer. Please read, this care
fully, ponder over its suggestions,
and if you decide, as it is hoped you will,
ask some comrade to propose you for
membership in some post of the G.A. R.

40,000 crates of strawberries last year,
mostly going in refrigerator cars to
Montana, Utah, British Columbia,
North and South Dakota and the states
east. Strawberries begin to ripen in
Hood River valley and at White Salmon
about . the first week in May. The
earliest strawberry ground is at White
Salmon, on the north bank of the Co
lumbia. Strawberry land in Hood
River valley and at White Salmon is
worth from $50 to $500 an acre.
3. The water is the best in the world.
It comes in springs and dashing streams
from the glaciers of Mt. Hood, a snow
mountain 28 miles from Hood River
town. Hood River valley and White
Salmon are health resorts. We have a
delightful summer climate.
4. Lumber is cheap. We have sev
eral saw mills that manufacture lumber
for export. Rough lumber is worth $8
per thousand. :
5. 'We have no ranges for stock in
Hood River valley. The country across
the Columbia, in the state of Washing
ton, has some good stock ranges in the
.Trout Lake and Camas Prairie sections,
where dairying is carried on extensively.
0. Cattle and horses are high priced.
, Very few mules here. If you have
mules, bring them along.
, 7. We irrigate here for strawberries and
other, small fruits and for clover and
garden crops. At White Salmon many
strawberry growers do not irrigate.
Tho Glacier gives more or less infor
mation every week valuable to intend

is $1.50 a year.
to which you, with the flower of the
young men of the United States, gave
the full measure of devotion in the past.
The problem of life presents itself to
different men in different conditions.
Some men xist solely for themselves ;
others live for the sood thev may do:
The best-deserved monuments are built
for the brave, the unselfish, the devoted.
It is such men whose memories are kept
ever fresh and green in grateful hearts.
Every man who wore the blue should
so live as to be thought worthy of the
respect and honor of his surviving com
rades, and every such man who does so
live should be found in the ranks of the
G.A. R. "Why?" Why? Because the
objects for which the survivors of the
"war for the Union" have associated
themselves in that great organization
are to preserve the memories of those
days an everliving influence for good in
tne nearis oi ineir countrymen ; mo in
culcating in the minds of the rising gen
eration a due appreciation of the noble
heritage won for them ; to show by the
private life and public acts of its mem
bers that patriotism which alone can
preserve the glorious freedom so dearly
won. "Ab, yes, but my loyalty is un
shaken ; I need no organized effort to
keep it alive." True ; so is it true ot
every good soldier ;but If the old Roman
test of strength is applied, the fascine is
stronger than the single faggot.
But this is only one of the objects of
the G. A. R. It appeals to man's self
ish as well as his charitable nature.
The brave men who dared doath at the
call of their country, many of them bro
ken in health, suffering from wounds or
disease, are now dependent on others
or left to want; the widows or orphans
of those who fell in the conflict or who,
having survived it have fallen by the

Mrs. A. XV. of Hood River asked in the Sun
day Oregontan for the following verses. They
Were furnished fie Glacier by K. H. Absten,
who had preserved them in his scrap book:

The reader may make up his mind to
be pleasantly overwhelmed by the op
ulence and vivacity of "Around the
Pan," published by the Nutshell Pub
lishing Company, 1059 Third avenue,
New York. The wonders begin with
the frontispiece picture of President
McKinley, drawn in a single line begin
ing at a point on the cheek bone and
going round and round in a constantly
widening circle, with waverings and
downbearings of the pen in the proper
places to secure detachment and shad
ing. Wa are told that this portrait "is
considered the most unique of its kind
in the world," and if there are degrees
of uniqueness we are willing to believe
that this is most the thing of which
there are noduplicates. Of course there
is text in addition to the pictures, and
we should be surprised indeed to hear
from any purchaser the opinion that he
had not got his money' worth (2).

The Goldondale Sentinel has been re
duced in size to fit its advertising space.
Now that a railroad is coming to Gold
endale, and the public has its eye on
Klickitat county more than ever, the
Sentinel is right when it says every
business house in town should have
some kind of an ad in its columns.
If taxes are paid before March 15th, a
rebate of 3 per cent is allowed. If one
half is paid before the first Monday in
April, then the time for the payment of
the remainder of taxes may be extended
to and including the first Monday in
October. Unless one-half is paid by the
first Mondav in April, the tax is de
linquent and .10 per cent interest is
added. If the last half of any tax is not
paid by the first Monday in October,
then 10 per cent penalty and 12 per cent
interest from the first Monday in April
is addexl.
The Torreus law, for registration oi
land titles, passed by the last legisla
ture, is finding opposition wherever it
has been attempted to register titles.
Charles K. Henry of Portland in a letter
to the Oregonian shows that the' oppo
sition to the law comes from the legal
profession and abstract owners and
companies. He shows that the law is
working satisfactorily in England and
its colonies and other parts of the world.
The registrar of titles iu Chicago says
the Torrens system it moving forward in
Cook county with all reasonable speed.
Certificates of title are bought, told and
mortgaged within an hour or two at
total expense of 3, and give complete
satisfaction. The total cost of register
ing tract under the Torrens land sys
tem is $25. After the registration, the
total cost of transfer is three dollars.
The new road law of Oregon provides

A Blot Upon Civilization.
Mysterious as are the ways of Provi
dence, there are times when their mean
ing is an open book. No cause - is so in
iquitous, no official is so unfit and corrupt
as not to find ready and impassioned
championship in the senate of the United
States. It is a truth that needs occasion
al demonstration, and for this cause, in
connection with the unspeakable' Noyes,
has Mr. McCumber been raised up.
The senate of the United States is the
most dignified deliberative body in the
world at its own valuation, and at that
only. In fact, it it thecesspool of Amer
ican politics. Thither repair the brain
less rich, the blackguard poor, the con
scienceless rapscallions and the coarsest
clowns that imported strains and native
talents can produce. Such aseiniiiity
on one hand and rascality on the
other as our national life affords pains
takingly erett themselves into an im
posing arch into which as a keystone
the United States senate tits with mir
aculous precision.
The senate is a deliberative body. It
prides itself on its dignity and courtesy.
Its high standards have been set by ruf
fians like Tillman, clowns like Wilson,
ignoramuses like Dubois, howling der
vishes like Pettigrew, screech owls like
Mason, promoters like Hanna and Kl
kins, tricksters like Gorman and Quay,
moneybags without pretense of states
manship, like Clark, Kean and Dryden.
A man of brains and character can hard
ly aspire to the senate any more.. It's as
much at his reputation is worth. Such
it its character that the worst is at once
believed of the man whose name is men
tioned in connection with it. In many
states the extremity has been reached of
c hosing the lest objectionable of one or
more unworthy aspirants Old ideals have
to be abandoned and new ones set up. The
highest moral and intellectual accom
plishments we can expect in a senator
nowadays is that he it six feet tall, pos
sesses the gift of human tpeech, and
has no convictions that cannot be in
stantly sacrificed for an appointment or
an appropriation.
There is not a department of our gov
ernment, nor an institution of our laws
and affairs, nor an establishment taiain
tained by public money that is not
something viler and more dangerous
from the senate's unholy touch. It has
stamped venality upon every tariff law
and dishonor upon every currency law
enacted in a generation. It hat tied
the nation't hands with Cub, fomented
insurrection in the Philippines, proeti.
And I never want to see
A better wife than Mary was
(or live briKlit years to me.
The change of scene brought cheerfulness,
And u a rosy low
Of happiness warmed Mary's cheeks
And melted all their snow.
I think she loved me some I'm bound
To think that of her, sir, '
And as for me I can't beg-in
To tell how I loved herl
Three years ago the baby came
Our humble home to bless,
And tnen I reckno 1 was nU;h
To perfect happiness;
'Twos hers 'twas mine)- but no language .
Havel lo explain to you
How that little girl's weak fingers
Our hearts together di ew.
Once we watched It through a fever.
And with each gasping breath.
Dumb, with an awful wordless woe,
We walled for ll.s death;
And, though I'm not a pious man,
Our souls together there,
For Heaven to spare our darling,
Wnt up Iu voiceless prayer.
And when tho docitor said 'twould live,
Our Joy what words eould tell?
Clasped In each other's arms we stood,
And our grateful tears fell.
Sometimes, you see, the shadow fell
Across our Utile nest,
But It only made the sunshlno seem
A doubly welcome guest.
Work came to me a plenty,
Aud.l kept the anvil ringing
Early and (ale you'd Und me there,
A-haiiimering and singing;
Love nerved my arm to labor
And moved my longue to song.
And though my singing wasn't sweet,
It was tremendous strong.
One day a one-armed stranger stopped
To have ine nail a shoe,
And while 1 was at work we passed .
A compliment or two;
I asked him how he lost his arm,
He said 'twas shot away
At Malvern Hill. "At Malvern Hill!
Did you know Itoberl May?''
"That's me," said he, "You, yon!" I gasped,
Choking with horrid doum;
"If you're the man, Just follow me:
We'll try this mystery '(mil"
With dl7.y steps I led him to
My Mary. Hod! Iwastruel
Then the billcrest pangs of misery
Unspeakable I knew.
Frozen Willi deadly horror,
Hhe stared with eyes of stone,
And from her quivering lips there broke
One wild despairing moan.
'Twas he! the husband of her youth,
Now risen from the dead.
But all too late and with bittercry,
Keeling, her senses lied.
What could be done? Ho was believed
As dead. On his return
He strove In vain some tidings
Of his absent wife lo learn.
'Twas well that he was iimoeeiit,
Klse I'd have killed him, too,
So dead he nevei would have nz
Till Ua Uriel's trumpet blew!
It was agreed that Mary then
Between ns should deeide,
And eaeli by her decision
Would sacredly abide.
No slnfer al the Judgment seat.
Walling eternal doom,
Could sutler what I then did,
Walling sentence In that room.
Rigid and breathless there we stood,
With nerves as tense as sl l,
Wliilx Mary's eyes sought eaeli white facs
In piuims appeal.
God! could not woman's duty
He less hardly rceonciled
Between her lawful husband
And the father of her child?
Ah! how my heart was chilled to Ice,
When she knell down and said:
"Forgive me. John! "l is my husband
Hen alive, not dead!"
I raised her tenderly, and trted
To tell her she was l ight,
Bu somehow in inyarhing breast
The prisoned words stuck tight.
"But John, I can't leave baby!"
"What! wife and child!" cried I;
"Musi I vield all! All. cruel lute!
Better that I should die.
Think of the king, sad, lonely hours
Waiting In ghsmi for
No wile to eheer ine with her love,
No babe to climb my knee. -
"And yet'j'ou are tier mother,
And hl sarred mother Rive'
Is still the purest, temlercsl lie '
ThaVHeaven tver wove. - "
Take her, but promise, Marv
For thai will bring no shame
My little girl shall bear ami learu
To lisp ner lather s name:
It may be, in the life to rome,
I II meet my child aad wife:
But yonder, lv mv cottage gate,
We parted for this life;
One long hand clasp Irom Mary,
And my dream of love was done
One long embrace from baby.
And my happiness was gone!
