John Groff of Mount Hood had a live
ly time with a cougar last Monday even
ing. He was driving home from his
son's place when he saw a large cougar
crouched on a log beside the road. He
yelled to scare the fierce animal away,
when it took to the brush only to appear
again a few rods farther on. This time
yelling had no effect, and as he whipped
up his horses to hurry by, the cougar
sprang at the driver and struck against
the hind wheel of the wagon. This is the
story as told by Mr. Leasure, who got
his information from Mr. Groff. Cou
gars must be pretty bold in the Mount
Hood settlement. . -(
The Glacier was a little premature in

of the best improved farms and has
been successful in managing it Bon
Hubert Leist of Collins, Wash., was in
Hood River last Friday. Mr. Leist be
lieves there is money in growing Btraw
berries at Collins, where there is a south
exposure, and where he says the fruit
ripens as early as at White Salmon. He
will experiment extensively with berries
next year, and with both low and high
land he is confident of producing the
best paying berries the very early berry
and the late berry. The soil at Collins
is of a similar nature to the Hood River
Captain Belcher has about completed
a 16- room cottage at Collins hot springs.
In the spring, Captain Belcher thought
he had found a hot spring source above
high water level,and waa about to erect
a 20,000 hotel and sanitarium, but
when the river rose this spring the cold
water seeped through and destroyed the
heat of the springs. This situation con
tinues for about two months in the year,
and of course obliterates the hot springs.
Another attempt will be made to Btrike
a spring not affected by high water.
Robert Leasure of Mount Hood was in
town Friday. He reports the clover
