A Stranger Writes of Hood Kiver.
J. L. Davis writes to the Ntwberg
Graphic from Hood River an follows:
This pluee is situated on the Colum
bia river at the mouth of Hood river,
between Mount Hood and Mount Ad
ams, and with mountains all around.
The valley proper is small, perhaps
about 20 miles long and four or five
miles wide. The soil and climate seem
to be wonderfully adapted to the grow
ing of strawberries and apples. The
orchards are usually small and well
cared for, and the people seem to be
pretty well organized and wide awake
to their best interests in varieties of
fruit and attractive ways in putting
their products on the market. I have
been traveling ubout the valley some
what in quest of health, and at the
same time taking some notice of va
rious pursuits thut the people are en
gaged in. 1 think the clearing of land
and putting out of apple orchards is
just now receiving the greatest atten
tion. The lumber business receives
considerable attention, and there is a
box factory or two that do a thriving
business. General farming receives
some attention, but the farmers buy
their hay, tiour, meat and a great
many other things.
The keeping qualities of apples and
strawberries raised here seems to me to
be remarkable. I have seen gome very
tine lots ol apples since I came here.
The long keeping quality of the apples
here enables the grouer to get fancy
prices alter other apple growers are out
of the way. Hon. K. L. Smith told me
that he sold a little lot of Jiewtowus a
short time ago for f 1.75 a box.
There is some idle capital finding its
w ay in here, as are also a good many
neonle. both for health and wealth.
Keal estate, I think, is well up to date
in price.
Is Here to Stay
Hood River, April 20, 190:5. Kditor
Glacier: The undersigned seldom goes
into anything without the closest inves
tigation and has never invested money
where he did not get liis own with rea
sonable interest, and if those who are
persistently throwing discredit upon the
National Home keekers' Association
-! not financiallv blind and led by
those that are equally blind they would
not so onit lie in the Uiteli ol poverty
Ami now. Mr. theassooiutioii
has paid Mr. Coyle's delinquent bills of
advertising in the Glacier, a thing they
were umior no ouuguumi iu uu, ur .i.c
bait ut I him in full for his work, I
think it but fair to put the workings of
the association betore mepuuiic. rirsi.
allow me to say as agent of the associ'
tion they have given inn every opportu
nity to see the inside workings of the
association, and I rind it the most eco-
niii-iillv adjusted niece of finance
have ever met with. Everything from
start to finish pays its owu expenses, to
there are no accumulation of back bills to
meet, and no need of carrying a lar;e
mi ml us of canital for safety. To show
an actual specimen: I carry a contract
for f 1,000, under series 1!K2, and expect
to iret in v moncv within two years. It
will cost'me M plus the price of the
contract, w Inch is $4. That is, ft for my
1.000 contract and thereafter 11.50 for
each month. All sums paid in begin to
draw interest from the date ot payment,
except the price of contract and the
first two monthly- installments, which
used for evoense fund. At the
end of each year there is p!avd to my
credit the HnVnint of money paid in and
interest thereon, and my dividend
share of accumulations of lapsed con-
tracts, which mav reasonably be ex-
tured, notice is served on contract holder
that the association will begin to pay
contract at a certain date and the money
placed to his credit. If he wishes to
build a home worth $1,000, he lets his
contract for same and gives first mort
gage on the real estate, and pays for it
when completed: or if a larm, gives
mortgage on it. If he does not wish the
money, ho can so notify the association
and have the money placed to his credit,
when the contract holder will have his
share of all the income of the associa
tion. Or if he so desires, he can sell his
contract to any purchaser at a premium
above ordinary interest. After the con
tract holder draws his money he begins
to return it in monthly installments of
$5.50 per month interest at 2 per cent per
annum ; that is, he pays $06 a year and
$20 a year interest ; 50 cents per month
being used for expense fund; $00 is
credited on Ih'b loan per year. If he
so desires, the contract holder can pay
whole amount at any time and stop
the interest. Now, there is not a day
laborer or a working girl but might
carry a $1,000 contract to completion
and have their ow n home or $1,000 safely
invested at interest.
If any one wishes definite informa
tion they can address Michael Mauss,
leputv stieritt, Murray, Utah, or II. S.
Waldo, 3430 High street Denver, who
have received loans from the associa
tion ; or call at my home, where I can
satisfy the most incredulous.

by my side, knitting as the day died out

Ingcrsoll on Napoleon.
A little while ago I stood by the grave
of the old Napoleon a magnificent tomb
of gilt and gold, fit almost for a dead
deity and gazed upon the sarcophagus
of black Egyptian marble, where rests
at least the ashes ot that restless man.
I leaned over the balustrade and thought
about the career of the greatest sol
dier of the modern world.
1 saw him walking on the banks of
the Seine, contemplating suicide. I saw
him ut l union I siiw hi in putting down
the mob in the streets of Paris I saw
him at the head of the army in It
aly I saw him crossing the bridge at
1idi with the tri-color in his hand I
saw him in Kgypt in the shadow of the
pyramids I saw him conquer the Alps,
and mingle the eagles of France with the
eagles of the crags. I saw him at Marengo
at I'lni and Austerlitz. I saw him In
Russia, where the infantry of the snow
and the cavalry of the w ild blast scat
tered Ids legions like winter's withered
leaves. I saw him at Liepsic in defeat
and disaster driven by a million bayo
nets back onto l ans clutched like a
wild beast banished to Elba. I saw
him escape ami retake an empire by the
force of his genius. I saw him upon the
frightful field of Waterloo, where chance
ami fate combined to wreck the fortunes
of their former king. And I saw him at
St. Helena, with his hands crossed be
hind him, gazing out upon the sad and
solemn sea.
I thought of the orphans and widows
he had made of the tears that had been
shed for his glory, and of the only wo
man w ho ever loved him, pushed from
his heart by the cold hand of ambition.
And I said I would rather have been a
, French peasant and worn wooden shoes;
! I would ra'hcr have lived in a hut with
pected to reduce my slight expenditure j a vine over the door, and the grapes
for expenses. Xow our contact is ma-' growing purple in the ravs of the an-
Hints for Grocery Samplers.
A Buffalo grocer, says the American
Grocer, posted the following gentle hints
in and about his store, to keep the people
from sampling:
Please do not eat any of these dates.
We aim to keep all our dates.
Customers will please not eat these
cheap prunes. The obliging clerks will
be pleased to serve you with a better
variety kept especially for free lunches.
Customers are warned not to sample
these codfish. The last person who did
so caught a bone in her throat and died.
This is only 12-cent coffee so I beg of
you do not chew any of it. Ask us for a
few beans of the 48-cent variety.
If you do not like to nibble raisins
with seeds take a handful to the back of
the store where the boy employed for
the purpose will remove' the seeds with
a corkscrew. .
Do not clean your hands by running
them throuh this rice. A special mani
cure and Turkish bath department has
been opened on the 49tb floor. It is free
to customers.
These peanuts are raw. If you want
to eat a half pint or so while your coffee
is being ground teil the proprietor and
he will have them roasted for you.

Asiatic Ladybirds Destroy Fruit Scale.
Government entomologists have dem
onstrated that the Asiatic lndybird has
a great liking for the larva of the San
Jose scale as an article of steady diet,
and are now propagating this specie of
insect for distribution among orchard
iata in districts affected by the scale,
says an official report. Efforts have
been made heretofore to induce Ameri
can ladybirds to feed on the scale with
out effect; but the Asiatic article seems
to have a natural predilection for the
pest which has caused more trouble and
expense to orchardmen of the Pacific
coast than anything else. In the inves
tigations conducted by the government,
it has been found that the original hab
itat of the San Jose scale was in the
northern and northwestern oart of
China. Here also the ladybird nourishes
and is known as the deadly enemy of
the scale. Hence when imported to
America, the beetle immediately at
tacked the scale from instinct.

I wish to let tbe people of Hood River know that I have the only
Eye Tester on tbe Columbia river between Tbe Dalles and Portland.
Come to me if you rrced spectacles, and bave your eyes tested so
that you can be suited in glasses. If your eyes are not both tbe
same, it Is sometimes necessary to bave lenses ground, cylindrical
and spherical. I bave all my lenses ground by the very best opti
cal company In America. They never fail to give satisfaction. And
I can sell them for leas tban half what you would pay in Portland,
as my expenses are small. I bave ft way of fixing rimless lenses
that is my secret, by which they are not easily broken. For com
pound stigniat ism no one can be suited with lenses unless their
eyes are treated by a regular eye-teting Instrument, same as I have
iu my store. H. TEMPLE-
