Clapper District.
The Glacier man, senior, visited the
Crapper district, last week and spent a
couple of pleasant days with the good
people of that neighborhood. D. 8.
Crapper, the pioneer of that section, he
found lu feeble heulth. Mr. dapper
was 80 years old July 25. He Is a man
of robust constitution and never had
much sickness till six weeks ago; since
then he has been troubled with short
ness of breath. Mr. Crapper has a
well improved farm. He settled upon
it about twenty years ago, when he
had the pick of the best part of the
valley. Mr. Crapper now has his farm
for rent. If the right kind of a renter
comes along he will strike a burgain.
He also has about 12 acres for sale on
the road south of the school house at
fill) an acre, with 850 apple trees,
some bearing.
Strawberries are later here than ift
the lower valley, but they are very
productive and of fine quality. Three
years ago Mr. Crapper harvested 1350
crates off M acres. The farmers of
this neighborhood are going largely
iuto the cultivation of strawberries.
G. A. McCurdy's place, adjoining
that of his father-in-law, D. 8. Crapper,
is noted for its fine strawberries. He
Las 4J acres in berries, and bis crop
this year sold for an average price of
$1.03. One acre of five-year-old plants
produced 176 crates. Oue acre set last
September yielded 47 crates, and some
of them said for $4 a crate. The total
yield, including one acre or young
plants, was 503 crates. Mr. McCurdy
has a delightful home surrouuded by
stately oaks whose shade Is inviting on
a summer day. Mr. McCurdy's pa
rents, an aged couple, 80 years old, re
cently from Hew Brunswick, make
their home with him. Mr. McCurdy's
father was a cousin of Frank Petty
grove, who owned thetowusiteof Port
land and named the city 67 years ago.
T. A. Vanausdal, adjoining McCurdy's,
has seven-eighth of au acre iu straw
berries that yielded 129 crates. T. H.
Hayner, who now owns the Keed
place, has a nice little home and Is do
ing well with strawberries.
Next above Mr. McCurdy's place, on
the road to Davenport's mills, is that
of J. J. Jordan's. This farm was for
merly owned by Antone Wise and is
also noted for its fine fruit. Mr. Jor
dan has recently cleared some land on
the hill above his Jiouse, where he has
set five acres in apple trees. The soil
here is loose and the location an ideal
one for an apple orchard. He has the
land between the trees in strawberries
which are doing well without irriga-
gatiou. Across the road from Mr. Jor
dan's place is that of J. H. Gould. Mr.
Gould has 20,000 plants, which this
veamroduced 400 crates of berries. He
also has a nice young orchard.
Fred Hertz, machinist for the Dav
enport Bros. Lumber Co., has a good
piece of land with a young orchard
and some berries, but as he works
away from home most of the time, bis
place shows the lack of attention.
J. I. Miller, who bought the Charles
Hayner place seven or eight years ago,
is a successful fruit grower. He has
good orchards and big strawberry
patches. This year, in connection
with his own place, he bad charge of
Bob Wright's strawberry patch adjoin
v Ing. His strawberry crop averaged
him $1.85 a crate. Mr. Miller uses the
following brand on his fruit boxes:
"Stumpy Fruit Farm, J.4I. Miller &
Co., proprietors " His wife and child
ren compose the "Co." He claims to
have 000 apple trees aud 1000 stumps.
The stumps will be haudy to pick fruit
from when the trees grow tall. Mr,
Miller's son Willie broke the record as
a Bt raw berry picker this last season
leaving out the big day's work of Lee
Buskirk with the wonderful berries on
the Jones place. Willie Miller picked
244 boxes of strawberries In one day,
His sisters, Jennie and Maud, for sev
eral seasons were champions at straw
berry picking, but this season their 15'
year-old brother distanced them. Mr
Miller has a good farm, a good home,
Intelligent and Industrious children
and is well satiefl .-d with bis lot.
R. B. Lindsay's farm adjoins Mr.
Miller on the north. It Is one of the
best places in the neighborhood, with
good buildings and an orchard, but
Mr. Lindsay hasn't gone extensively
Iuto strawberry growing.
Jack Bin us has a well improved
place, with good orchards and straw
berry fields. His straw berry crop aver
aged him f a crate this year. A. J
Rogers has a small tract adjoining
Binns on which he has made good Im
pioveiuenta. He bus a nice young
strawberry patch that will bring bim
a snug sum of money next year.
Attorney A. A. Jayne's farm Is in
this locality. He has a thrifty young
orchard, some of the trees in which are
bearing. His strawberries averaged
$1.85 a crate. He also will go largely
into the cultivation of strawberries.
knowing thai there is good money in
the business in his locality. Mr. Jay tie
has several hundred acres under his
control which he will fence, and he
will then have a good stock pasture.
C. A. Learning is cultivating a nice
young orchard and several acres In
strawberries. He is a worker and will
some day have as productive and de
sirable a place as any In the neighbor
hood. C A. Hickle'is making a good start
for a productive farm. His berry
patch, orchard and other crops are
kept iu good condition. He treated
the (i lacier man to a dish of strawber-
ties and cream July SO, and they were
excellent. Berries on Mr. Hickie's
place are quite Ule but they are of ex
cellent quality. Mr. Hickle has a neat
log cabin and log bam built by hisowti
fcauds. He is an old printer and pub
lisher who drifted from Illinois aim
tho Dukolas out lo Oregon in search of
health and found it on his little cluim
up in the foothills of Mount Defiance.
The Glacier man continued bis trip
up the mountain road as far as the
new mill being built by the Davenport
Bros. Lumber Co, The mill is located
about half a mile above the old Parker
house. Fred Hertz had about com
pleted setting up the machinery and
the mill was about ready to start up.
The force of men at work on the mill
and building roads and flume lire
boarded at the Parker house, which is
managed by Mrs. F. E. Newby. There
are hundreds of acres here owned by
the Davenports, which are being de
nuded of timber, that will some day In
the near future be wanted for orchard
land. The old Berger ranch, now
owned by some one in California, is in
bad shape. The fences are down, and
bauds of cattle have destroyed the once
tine orchard. William Froehe of Sher
man county has about 150 fat cattle
ranging on Davenport's lands that are
herded by J. N. Spencer.
Going south from Crapper school
house the good farms of Ida Crapper,
E. E. Lyons, J. R. Kinsey, T. J. Cun
ning, Henry Hackettand John Jakku
were passed. On the slope towards
Hood river ure the places of John Kel-
ley, J. Wiekham, John Hake!, Van
Johnson, Charles Reed, and T. J. Cun
ning's homestead. The hitter is known
as Edgemont, so named because the
biggest part stands on edge. Starting
from the river, its limits on the moun
tain side reach an elevation of some
thing less than 2000 feet. It has a good
deal of land to the acre. Van John
son has one of the best improved farms
in the neighborhood. He lias good
meadow laud, bearing orchards and
strawberry fields. He recently rented
his place for a term of years to Flunk
Biirnliart. Van will take a well-earfoed
vacation while he grubs more land to
improve his place. John Hake I hut-
carved out a good home on the bank
of Hood River, where he has good or
chards, clover and struwlierry fields
His lather, John uakel, ana cousin,
Miss Fiina Niva, recently arrived from
Finland. The old gentleman will
make his home with bis son. Mr.
Hakel has invented and had patented
an implement , to trim strawberry
vines that is operated by baud and will
prove a great labor saver. John Kel
Icy has a good farm and home. His
orchards are looking well, and the
apple trees will produce a good lot of
fruit this year. John Kelley's place
has been well known for years as pro
ductive in fruit and especially eurly
strawberries. The same can be said of
Wick bam 'a place adjoining. Mr.
Wiekham has a big orchard of bearing
apple trees and other fruit. He is
clearing more land to set to strawber
ries and was engaged in setting plan Is
when visited by the Glacier mau.
II. C. Ilcngst and eon Joseph have
one of the best places minting on
Hood river. They have'1000 apple
trees, 500 of them bearing, all good
winter varieties. They thin the fruit
and allow no trees to overbear. They
have excellent clover land, and last
year Harvested six tons ot nay on l
acres, first crop. From 1 acres they
have gathered 400 crates of. stsawber-
ries. Everything about the Ilengsl
farm gives evidence of thrift and com
fort. Mr. and Mrs. Hengst are getting
well along in years and desire to sell
the farm and build aud live upon then
place in town. They offer the farm
120 acres, for sale at $00 an acre. We
kuow of no cheaper place in the val
ley. Some of the best places in the
Crapper district we failed to visit on
this trip.

Tracy Kills Himself
Tracy is dead. Wounded by the
posse and bleeding from a severed artery
he shot himself to avoid capture.
posse had the outlaw surrounded Tues
day night near Lake creek, Davenport
Wash. While running from a barn to a
wheat field Tracy received a fmilade of
rifle shots, one taking effect in hisleft leg
between the knee and ankle, breaking
the bone and severing an artery. Tracy
crawled into the grain field and the
posse remained outside to await rein
forcements. About 11 o clock at night
a single pistol shot was heard. That
was all. It was Tracy shooting himself
through the head with the 45-caliber re

One Dog Dead the Other Liyea.
Hood River, Aug. 7, 1902. Editor
Glacier: Ignore Adams' little pug dog
is dead at the handset the poisoner,
the fatal dose having been handed him
just at nightfall, lie was absent only
few minutes w hen he was called back
into the liouse and put to bed. At that
time he showed no symptoms of the
poison, therefore the dastard who did
the deed purposely waited until about
bedtime, and so gave no chance to try-
to save his lite. A humane person can
notconceive how anv one but a liend in
human shape can desire to torture an
take the life of a poor little innocent
dog w hich never harmed any one I
some petty spite or malice which the
poisoner may Harbor against I tie owne
of the dog or some member of the house
hold. If the cruel poisoner could have seen
the anguish and sorrow of the child
whose pet and companion little Pug was
surely the inhuman wretch would liav
felt an atom of remorse for the wicked
deed committed. All humane peopl
would hail with delight a law whic
would punish severely with hue an
imprisonment dog poisoners and do.

bother with cash coupons, we have decided to dispense with them
and give the following prices from date:
