No tiian or woman with a eoul (or the divine in nature ever visited White Sal mon without being impressed w ith its matchless view of mountain and river. The entire absence of town life with its rich and its poor its people of fashion and its outcasts, . its grinding competi tion and its sickening pathos, has been to many who have sunk into its .retreat ita greatest charm. In them the occa sional rumor of a railroad down the north bank of the Columbia awakens no enthusiasm. To such persons the advent of a railroad, or even the development from a rural hnmlet into a village means the advent of bums and thugs, gin-mills and jails. Nevertheless, such a process is slowly giing on at White Salmon, and he who loves the solitude must, in a few years, move on or adjust himself to a more complicated condition, lock his doors at night and wear a collar. We have a telephone connection with the rest of t'ie world, a local reservoir and water system. Mercantile buildings are in process of construction and others are planned, and so it goes. P. A. Trana's new residence Is going to L-e one of the handsomest and most homelike at White Salmon. Frank Uroshong is putting up a resi dence opposite Wolfard's store.

Fraser and family of Portland are sojourning at Trout Lake for the summer. ('. M. Wolfarrt is building a large addition to his store to meet the growth of this community and the demands of an increasing trade. A large stock of clothing is to be a feature of the new arrangement. The new building to bo used as a drug store with oftices above is nearing com pletion. Rev. W. G. Eliot delivered a splen did sermon to our people last Sunday evening, every seat in the house being filled. Mr.and Mrs.BIythe, Jr.,of Hood River recently visited White Salmon as the guests of the Condons, both having been former students at the state uni versity. Among the needs of this place, the most indispensable are a new school buidling and an Irrigating system. Miss Georgia Johnson has been elect ed to teach the primary department of our public school. The principal has not yet been chosen. Those fruitgrowers whose strawberry shipment was wrecked on an unmarked submerged pile belonging to the Lost Lake Lumber company feel that the company has not only defied the law, but acted very small and excited much indignant feeling. The attention of the federal authorities may be called to the matter. The reckless obstruction of a stream like the Columbia and the impudence of the company may re sult in an early investigation by certain federal oflleers. Clii'iioweth Sews Jiotes. Our beautiful little burg of Chenow eth is situated in the midst of the most beau tifu 1 of the Col u ra bia river scenery. A few miles above the Cascade Locks is the Little White Salmon, a stream of water flowing now in gentle descent, then in wild dashes, funning cascades of splendor and beauty and quiet pools of crystal clearness, fresh from the mountains fur above. This makes, an ideal trout stream, where a lover of fishing or of art and oeauty can find the most enjoyable place. Here nature in her fullest abundance has pro vided all that could be asked for. Our little burg of one store and a post office is situated in the midst of this splendor and beauty. One wishing an outing or sport cannot find a place to compete with the, Little White Salmon. Hunting is excellent for those who are not afraid of the fam ous w ild animals so very numerous, here. Earl Keys. George Marcyier spent Saturday and Sunday in Hood IUver. Robert Stone lost a good horse Sun day through the animal becoming crippled. 15. F. Fuller and wife have gone to Sherman county on au outing for three or four weeks. Mrs. J. W. Forbes of Hood River spent three or four days with her parents, last week, gathering blackber ries. The young folks of mill A had quite a nice dance Saturday evening. Sever al people from mill B attended and reported an excellent time. Camping parties are occasionally seen going up the valley to partake of the sport to be found there, such as hunting, fishing aud fruit gathering. Mrs. Bert Snyder of Ruthton Is visit ing with Mi's.

We look toward the cool blue hills and wish we could spend a fortnight or so there during the warm days, but like many others we are too busy to spare the time now. It. II. Nichols and sister and Mm. William Nichols took a trio to the black berry patch and succeeded in gathering about 100 quarts of tine berries. Mrs William Nichols returned to The Dalles on Saturday, well pleased with her trip. The blackberries seem to be plentiful this year, as quite a number have gone out after hemes and come back well supplied. ! lSert Tvler had quite a thrilling ex-! perienee last Saturday in the shape of a ! scrap with a vicious badger. The bad- ger seemed to do all the scrapping while , lrt did the yelling. Bert is working I far Fred Chandler aud started from the house w the orchard about ten rods distant, and wlfen about half way he ran across a large badger. The badger didn't seem to be very bashful, and started for him with bia bristles up and his mouth open. Bert gave one Com anche Indian war whoop and landed on a workbench close by. The badger made several attempts to jump on to the bench, but Bert kept bis feet going pretty lively and yelling at the top of his voice. Miss "Kuby Chandler and Miss Ellen Dodge hearing his screams ran out to his assistance, and seeing his plight called the dog.which ran the bad ger off to the tmioer. The girls assisted Bert down from the bench and into the house, very badly frightened but not hurt. Bert says, talk about your wild cats, cougars, bears or anything elBe, but he'll take any of tham in preference to that old badger. Several of the neiah bor bovs took a trip to Green Point on a fishing excur sion. Some were quite lucky, and we understand one of them caught 730 line trout. But we won't tell his name as that sounds kind of fishy. Some of our farmers are setting out more strawberries this summer, while others are Dlowimr uu their berries and will sow to clover, claiming that there is more proft in hay at present prices than in berries. The Christian Adventists are holding a camn meetine in theeroveeastof their church. Quite an interest is taken.there being a large attendance every evening H. E.

Mobf, of the East Side, Fndoy afternoon and even ing, July 24. Everybody invited. Odell Motes. Messrs. Coe & Shute of Hood River are busily engaged putting up the warehouse at Odell. Fred Coe is on the erotuid siiDerintendinir the work and has a force of 7 men under his direction. The work is first class and is progressing rapidly. The building is two stories with basement and will be quite an imposing structure. Mrs. George Booth is building an ad dition to her home on Odell Heights. John Groff, who lives on the Mount Hood road above the bridge, called at Odell today and related in a graphio manner one of the most thrilling inci dents that has been told here for a loug time. A few days ago he was going from his sou's ranch homeward when he encountered a cougar, which chased him for 80 rods, with bis horses under a dead run. and finally sprang at him in the wagon. Probably the only thing that saved him was the speed of the horses. The cougar made a leap for the side of the wagon and landed at the rear end of the wagon box. This is no dream, for the prints of bis claws are plainly visible on the end gate and one side of the wagou box. I don't think Mr. Groff is at all frightened now. but from his vivid descriutiou of the incident it was surely exciting. I think this is about the hardest propo sition this old war veteran ever tackled. Last Sunday W. E. Neff found a era zy man in his barn. Ihe roper authorities were notified and he was taken charge of. Fred Coe and wife and Henry Shute and wife are tenting near the little white store. They seem to enjoy the outing notwithstanding the men are working ten hours a day. A small pnrtv of friends of Messrs Coe and Shute was entertained at their tents on Wednesday evening.

Koouta of Mount Hood for the new school house in Dukes Valley. We have had but one applicant for teacher as yet, and this does not suit our directors.
