Robert Rand on the State road will
have one of the prettiest homes, one of
these, days, to be found in the valley.
He is putting up a neat kitchen to hi
already line dwelling, and instead of
the big unsightly rocks about the lawn,
Mr. Rand has worked hem into neat
'tone walls inclosing portions of the
grounds where it will add most to the
beauty of the place, and tilling these in
closures w ith good, rich soil, he has con
verted them into inonnds and terraces,
which he will fill with flowers and grass
es, making his home a "thing of lieauty
and a joy forever." He has also built a
neat rustic; bridge across Phelps creek
west of his residence and has a small
green-house between his dwelling and
the bridge, in course of construction and
almost ready for the glass, both of
which improvements add much to the
attractiveness of his home.
One of our oli reliable moss-back
friends from up the canon informs us
that Warren Miller has made a valuable
discovery; w hich, whila coming a little
too late to prove very remunerative to
him this year, Will give him a sure
cinch on the ice-cream business next
season, and will prove more profitable
than even Jim l.angile s gold mine. Our
informant says Mr. Miller keeps his cow
n his ice house and frets a whole -can-
ful of fine ice-cream every morning and
evening, lie also tells us that warren
has become an expert in the art ot train
horses, and has his team so trained that
while one of the horses pulls the plow,
the other lies down pn the beam
and holds the plow in the ground.
Frank Vallentine, whose sudden death
we announced two weeks ago, died of
of apoplexy. , It seems he anticipated
such a demise, as he re) nested a friend
to send for A. C. Staten if anything hap
pened to him and he should not be able
to make his wisuee known, litis was a
few davs before his death. As per the
wish of Mr. Valentine, expressed before
he left Hood River, Mr. .Staten shipped
his body to the Portland, crematory for
cremation, and after cremation, his
ashes to New York City to be buried
by the side of his mother.

ested in a liberal faith, and who desire
to give their assistance toward this work
and on philanthropic lines, are cordially
invited to attend this meeting, which
we hope to make a permanent factor for
good in this community.
A new postoffice ruling has gone into
effect, imposing a fine of $200 or one
year's imprisonment on any one who
through carelessness or otherwise takes
mail not belonging to them from the
office and fails to return it immediately.
This applies to newspapers as well as
letters and other valuable mail. People
when taking their mail from the office
should examine it before they leave the
building; it will take only a moment
and will save a great deal of trouble
The Oregonian recently printed the
following dispatch from VV hue Salmon :
"Charles Waters of this place made ap

had all been assigned. Mr. Waters
states that if he is alive in 1!03 he will
see that the fish are secured."

HILLS OF TINY GEMS.

Of clay, relieved here and thereby hills
of sand. It was formerly the bottom
of a great shallow Ial:e. the rocky
banks of which still remain in the
shape of stony cliffs that hear the an

arid wonderlnnrh sp. s the Philadelphia
Saturday Evening Post.
The hills described Hre not station
ary, but travel constantly, though
slowly, journeying over the plain as
the winds direct. The fan:! of which
they are composed is not of the ordi
nary kind, but of a nature marvelous.
Most of the grains are transparent,
others are translucent, while many
are of rainbow hues, being, in fact,
small gems of red earnelian. green
chrysolite, and vari-roloved garnet.
Seen beneath a micrseope, most of
them are perfect spheres, rounded and
polished by attrition with each other.
Composed of thefe strange materials,
the sand-hills look like grea't snow
drifts, with here and there a gleam of
color. Continually they give forth a
rustling sound, as the tiny spheres are
shifted by the winds, rolling slowly
The northern portion of the desert
is paved with the most wonderful peb

quisitely laid as to defy successful
imitation by the most skilled worker
in mosaic flooring. These pebbles are
of porphyry, agate, earnelicn. qtinrt
erystal, garnet, and other such beauti

of them is like a floor.'and they look
as if prtssed into it with a roller.

A very simple but ingenious device for
keeping" mites off the roosts in hen
houses is used in England, according to
an English newspaer. The arrange
ment consists of a thick, fluffy cord,' or
heavy yarn cord, wrapped lightly round
the roost, the end hanging down into a
can of coal oil below. The theory of this
device is that the string will draw the
kerosene up from tin can and keep the
part wound about the roost always sat
urated with oil. Of course, under such
an arrangement, no lice" could inhabit
tbe Tuosts. The can, however, must ba
kept well supplied with oil. The thing
is worth 'trying. Nothing, perhaps,
gives chickens- more trouble than lit,
