The family of F. 0. Brace returned
from Seattle Saturday evening. They
have been visiting relatives and friend's
on the Sound for some time. Mrs.
Brace, who used to think she liked the
Sound country better than Hood Ri er,
after this visit declares she would not
live In Seattle. They have had several
severe frosts there, "killing all tender
vegetation, and Mrs. Brave was sur
prised to find tomatoes, cucumbers and
other garden stuff still green and unin
jured by the frosts in Hood River. Mr.
brace s daughter said if they had to
live there ail winter they would all be
dead before spring. Fog prevails there
every day until nearly noon and some
times all day, while here we ape enjoy
ing the glorious sunshine almost unin
termpteUly. It is hard to hnd a ntore
desirable country in which to live than

hisold stamping ground, when the ad

The Glacier desires to assist in everv
possible way in the educat ional work of
the community and to this end will be
clad to have trie teachers of the several
districts send in monthly reports for
publication, if it win be ot any value to
tnem in tneir worn and help to stim
ulate interest in study and regularity in
attendance in their respective schools.
The life of a public school teacher is one
of the hardest and yet moBt poorly paid,
taking everything into consideration,
that can be found and so every patron
of any school should not fail to most
heartily co-operate with the teacher and
thug add to the efficiency of the work.
It costs nothing to let your teacher
know that you appreciate the self-sacrificing
efforts being made, but it is of in
estimable value to the teacher.
Jack McVay says he is the proud pos
sessor of nine of the prettiest ten-days
oiu pigs in uregon. uur aevu says
Mr. McVay would not be so proud of his
pigs if he should see the pigs our devil is
possessed of. When a Sunday school
boy, of tender years, we remember once
to have read of certain swine being pos
sessed of devils.some 1900 years ago, but
this is the only case in modern times that
has come to our notice. We are curious
to note the effect on the pigs.

in every respect, than on the Sound.

The following extracts from personal
corretmondence between Professor Kig-
gins of Portland, who owns a 40-acre
annle orchard near Boise, Idaho, and
A. I. Mason of the East Side, who were
old friends and schoolmates at college,
aru self cxplanatofy:
Portland. Or.. Sept. 30. 1002
Mr. A. I. Mason. Dear Friend; You'd
better go up to Boise and see my 8 or 10
carB of Jonathans. You'd then grub up
your Hood River stock and grow an
orchard in an apple country. I have
sold mv Jonathans at f 1.15, top and bot-
torn faced and middle tilled. ine pur
chasers to receive them there at Boise.
I could have gotten $1 .25 f. o. b. at Boise
but to lie accepted in Chicago. I shall
have 12 cars of Gano, a seedling of the
Ben Davis. Yon can't show tip 10,000
boxes of Jonathans in your whole dis
trict and yet three of us round up that
number. Wnat prices are the uoou
River growers getting or asking? Have
many been sold? How many will you
have this year? Where do you find the
best market or where does it promise to
be? Where do you get the best apple
boxes? Write me. Yours etc.,
C. M. KlGOINS
Hood River, Or., Oct. 4, 1902.
Prof. C. M. Kiggins, Dear Sir and
Friend ; Yours of the 30th tilt, received
yesterday. Iu reply I send in this letter
a complimentary season ticket to our
Fifth Biennial Fruit Fair. Come up
and see some 1st class fruit, for it is sel
dom an Idaho fruit grower gets an op
portunity. The oijy trees I should grub out are
some Lawyers, which I planted at your
suggestion. I should delight to inspect
your entire crop. You have done well
in selling your Jonathans, but I fear
vour Ganos will have to be sold as "Ida
ho Pippins" at a much less figure. I am
glad to learn of your having such S large,
crop. No we can't show up 10,000 box
es of Jonathans but if you'll visit our
fruit fair we will show up train loads of
Spitzenbergs, Albemarle Pippins and
ninny other varieties in such quantity
and of such quality that an Idaho frnit
grower would bow his head in solitude
and exclaim, '"Where ignorance is bliss
'tis follv to be wise.'' Wish I'd staid at
homo." As yet but few of our growers
have sold. W'e never worry over a
market as our reputation brings buyers
from Alaska to New York and from
Japan to London. My crop of apples is
very light owing to my having top-grafted
half of my trees to Spitzenbergs and
Newtowns. You' ask what prices our
vrrowers arc getting. They range from
$1.20 to 1(2.00 per box for 1st grade. I
know of one grower who has sold his
entire crop of Wolf Rivers at $2 r.er box
and this is an inferior apple compared
with the Spitzenberg and Newtown.
Yon ask where we get our boxes. At
Hood River of course. They are in line
with everything produced here; the best
quality. Well friend Kiggins, to lay
aside all joking, I am truly glad to learn
of your success and hope to hear from
you again. Sny, can,t you come up Fri
day night7 I'll meet, 'you at the depot
and treat you royal. our friend,
A. I. Mason.
Why a Trust Is Like a River.
Prsident Roosvelt in one of ids speech
es having drawn a coniparii-on between
a trust and a river, a contributor to an
Eastern exchange is moved to offer a
few reasons why a trust is like a river
which our honored president neglected
to mention :
It looks on the level, but it isn't.
It is always next to the banks.
There are sometimes a great many
bluffs along the way. " ,
Some are n "dam site" worse than

Laughler at a Stomach Cure.
London Family Doctor.
Wrorry is but one of the many forms
of fear, go worry tends to the production
of indigestion. Indigestion tends to put
the body of the subject in a condition
that favors worry." There is thus estab
lished a vicious circle which tends to
perpetuate itself, each clement augment
ing the other. It is necessary to secure
a cheerful, wholesome atmosphere for
the dyspeptic. He should eat his meals
at a table where there is good fellowship
and where funny stories are told. He
should himself make a great effort to
contribute his share of this at the table,
evun if it be necessary, as it was in one
case under my care, for him to solemnly
and seriously collect funny paragraphs
from the press, and at first interject
them spasmodically during lulls in the
conversation at the table. The very ef
forts and determination of the man to'
correct his own silent habits at table, to
correct his feelings of discouragement
and worry, were in themselves a prom
ise of success. The effort made was ad
equate to the obstacles to be overcome.
He succeeded, and the spectacle of that
man trying to be funny at table when
he felt thoroughly discouraged and blue
is one we shall nevr forget.
Laughing is in itself also a useful ex
ercise from the standpoint of digestion.
It stirs up all the abdominal organs, it
increases the circulation of the blood, it
increases peristalsis, it increases the se
cretion of gastric juices. Five minutes'
deliberate laughing after each meal
would lie an excellent prescription for
A now and important use for refined
paratline wax seems to have been dis
covered by a prominent, resident of
Ohio, living near Lancaster, who had
two trees badly damaged by Ktorm, one
being a maple and the 'other apple.
In each case a large limb was broken
down from the trunk, but still attached
to it. The limbs were propped up and
fastened up with strap, verv much as a
broken leg might bo fastened with splints.
and then melted refined wax pouredinto
and over all the cracks. The "surgical
operation" was entirely successful. The
paraffin? prevented the escape of the sap,
sepi out uie rain ana moisture which
would have rotted the trees, prevented
the depredation of insects, and the limbs
seem thus far to be perefectlv reat
tached to the trees.
It is reported that the tea plants which
were planted in the Rogue River vallev,
in the southern portion of Oregon, last
spring, have done well and are thriving
excellently. The seed was furnished by
the Southern Pacific company. It is be
lieved by those who have an interest in
the experiment that the growing of tea,
so far as the growing is concerned
could be made a success in Southern
Oregon. The only doubtful ' question
is w hether the business could be made
a paying one. However the question of
whether tea plants will grow in Rogue
Kiver valley has been settled favorhl bv
the result of the present experiment.
I says an exchange.
One of the ouestions to come up with
relation to Cuba when the inevitable
negotiations for annexation begin will
be the disposition of the Chinese on the
island. There are over 15,000 Chinese
in Cuba aiid more are going in. The
Chinese government has sunt a diplomat
to Havana to negotiate a treaty with
the new republic whereby Chinese may
be admitted freely. In this matter the
United States lias a friendly interest,
as it is only a step from Cuba into the
United States, and it would nor, rje in
the interest of this country to have a
loop hole for the Chinese to the south
ward. One of the matters discussed In
relation to reciprocity with Cuba last
winter was the necessity of Cnba adopt
ing our contract labor and Chinese ex
clusion laws. A sjiecial concession to
