Call agaiu. ...... -
The Cloud Cap Inn stages are much
in evidence these diiys.. .There is a
touch of history ub"out these old thorough-brace
stages. The sight of them
awakens tender recollections of pioneer
days in the West. The days of '49 the
days of gold ;t he days when the red mail
was a terror. Then later on, the days
of the bandit; the days of hold-ups
the days of prosperity, the days when
people were held up thev had some
thing to give up. The days when there
whs a moral code that punished the
ofl'enders without court or jury. The
days when it was not necessary to have
a lock or key ou granary or storehouse.
Oli! those dear, old days when people
were neighborly; when the latch string
was always out, when the familiar
word was"Howdy, 'light and come iu."
Thexe days of modern invention and
vice but with the passing of the old
t borough -brace coach passed the good
old pioneer days, and with these days
the pioneer himself, whose life was an
important factor in the history of dear
old Oregon. Passing from these pio
neer days and the sturdy pioneers who
have gone to their reward, let us, in
order to perpetuate their memory, build
a solid structure upon the foundation
they laid, that the future of our great
state may prove a worthy factor in our
great nation. . .
Still the work of development goes
on. Frank A. Massee of Willow Flat,
who recently purchased land from C.
L. Rogers, has let a contract for a lot
of grubbing. Mr, Massee will soon erect
a new home.
Referring to that ditch meeting Sat
urday, permit this thought. Mr.Bone,
representing the company, hag shown
his faith iu this country by putting In
many thousands of dollars, and is now
ithout ready to serve the people of the
East Side with sufficient water to make
this section not only a profitable but a
beautiful suburb. If their facilities are
not sufficient, why not take up the
two hundred shares of stock that are
for sule, at the same price it was sold
at three years ago, thereby making 25
percent, and push the work along
speedily, to the end that this section
may be reclaimed and beautified as
notntng nut wutercan do. It is my
opinion that the necessary work of irri
gation has been materially retarded
lids season by reason of con tractshaving
tieen signed with a concern that the peo
pleknow little of, and from which asyet
have nothing but promises, many of
which, I nm reliably informed, can
never be fulfilled. It Is proper to have
ennpetition iu all legitimate lines, but
better lie right before proceeding too
E. T. Folts has two Jersey heifers

figures that when they are four
years old thev will average 15
pounds of butter each a week. Why
not invest in Jersey cows and clover?

Gas From Fir Stumps.
New York Herald.
Discovery of a new illuminating gas
which can compete with coal gas for
illuminating purposes, the detection of
procaines by which a new turpentine in
limitless quantity and ot properties per
mitting its general use in manufactures
and arts, can be produced from material
formerly thought worthless, and the
solution of the problem of utilizing the
by-products of the great Douglas nr. for
ests of which cover thousands of square
miles of the Pacific Northwest, will be
announced to the American Chemical
society during its session at Cleveland
June 2!, by Professor George P. Frank-
forter, dean of the College of Chemistry
of the University of Minnesota.
'rofessor Frankforter's discoveries are
the results of many months of experi
ments in the Western forests and in the
laboratories of the state university, and
are of immense commercial value. They
relate entirely to the utilization of
stumps of the Douglas ri r left by thelum-
bermen and until now thought to nave
no value, these stumps cover a tre
mendous area of Western "cutover"
timber lands, and so little have they
been regarded that it has been the cus
tom to burn them out to rid the land of
them and to permit agricultural opera
tions. The burning process left csh deposits
which for several. years robbed the soil
of its agricultural values. For each
stump burned, Professor Frankforter an
nounces, the owners have thrown away
the equivalent of f'200.
The Douglas fir is one of the best of
Western timber trees, and io much
sought for building purpose. Its lower
portions are tilled with resinous pitch,
and the portions containing the pitch de
posits have been valueless for lumber
because of the impossibility of forcing!

the saws through the pitch soaked fibres
of the log. For this reason the lumber
men have cut the trees, frequently eight
to ten feet in diameter, at a height of 20
feet from the ground. This left the pitch
soaked stump standing,to be burned or
allowed to rot away.
Announcing the results of his discov
eries, Professor Frankforter said today :
"It has long been known that the pitch
in the abandoned stumps had a commer
cial value, but the means of extracting
it have not been at hand. It was to
provide these means that I spent months
"I have been astonished to find, by
exact scientific methods that 40 per cent
of the abandoned stumps is valuable
Sitch. This pitch, properly treated, pro
uces a turpentine inestimably superior
to that now obtained from the Southern
forests, the supply of which is decreas
year by year.
"The new tnrpentinehasa'l the chem
ical and medicinal qualities of the com
mon commercial turpentine,but is abso
lutely free from its disagreeable smell
and taste. These two features have been
the greatest drawback to the more gen
eral use of turpentine in manufactures
and the arts. The odor of the fir tur
pentine is mild and balsamic, and its
taste is mild and pleasant. It might be
utilized in a thousand ways, even in
chewing gum and for soda fountain
flavors, so pleasant is its taste.
"To give tersely the results, I will say
that each stnmp contains 40 per cent of
its bulk in pitch. It contains five or six
cords of wood. Of the pitch in the stump,
20 per cent can easily be resolved into
turpentine, 30 per cent into tar oil, and
50 per cent into common tar. The tar
is an excellent product and can nnd
ready sale. The minor product is pyro-
UgllHUUB HCIU, COIlUllIllIMj UCB11U HC1U.
"All the products of the fir stumps
can be removed by what is technically
known as 'destructive distillation.' One
of the most marvellous features is that
during the distillation process the fir
gives out a gas of strong heating and
illuminating powers, sumcient to main
tain the process andfurnish the means of
extracting the products desired for com
mercial purposes. The distillation pays
tor itself and leaves the products of the
pitch practically clear protit.
"After all the products have been ex
traded turpentine, tar oil, tar, acids,
gas there is still left a charcoal, the
superior of which is hard to find. The
wonderful value of these stumps may be
summed up 'in the single fact that
not a shred is without commercial use,
"Regarding the gas given on, it is a
strong illuminant, and with reduction
operations carried on on a large scale it
would be produced in volume sumcient
to conduct extensive gas-lighting opera
"tor nan a century these gold mines
of cutover land have lain idle. Even
the very refuse of the mills, which the
owners have burned and given away for
years, contained values sutllcient to pay
a large profit on the work of extracting

Up The East Side Grade by Moonlight.
Editor Glacier: I wish to air a few
thoughts that have been floating about in
my think tank. I am not bothered with
liver complaint nor um I in love, being
beyond that stage, but some how or oth
er these beautiful moonlight nights, the
solitude of the Hood Kiver forest and the
murmur of tiie little falls and rapids of
Hood river have a fascination for me.
Being a lover of natu.e I have never
in all my travels found but one place
that could beat Hood River for grand
scenery and the brightness of her moon
light nights, that is Colorado.
As a stranger, it seems to me that the
people of this thriving little city do not
fully appreciate the beauty anil grand
eur of the oent-ry right at their door.
Where in all the world can a more love
ly scene be found than the smooth wagon
road as it winds its w ay out of the city,
gracefully curving around the sides of the
mountains, almost foriping a horse shoe,
as it climbs to the summit. All the
way up the climbjyou hear echoing np
from tWcanyon below the complaint
of Hood river as it. murmurs at the huge
boulders that, lie in its bed, seemingly
trying to impede its progress to the sea.
It being in the evening, the mountain
breezes cool your brow as you ascend
to the top. At last as you turn a curve
in the road you have reached the sum
mit, and what a wonderful and majestic
view breaks in upon your vision. Hood
River valley, with its comfortable farm
houses, well kept orchards, the moun
tain sides covered with magnificent
pine, w hile high above it all towers old
Mount Hood. His crown all covered
with snow. The scene is too grand for
the pen of an amateur to do justice to.
It ninst be Beeu to be appreciated.
And above all by moonlight. At this
hour one can almost believe it possible
to commune with the Creator himself,
