No Fraud Stock in Our Shoes. A second
quality sole leather will last no time on gravel and "
rocks. We take special pains iu selecting good soles
for our shoes. A poor counter soon slops down at
the heel becacse it is constantly strained in hill
walking. Leather-board and paste-board count
ers are very common in job shoes. We positively
will not sell a shoe without a good sewed leather
counter. To get your money's worth your shoe
must have a good leather insole. We see that in
soles are right. Then, about linings. Ladies can
tell you what poor linings do for a dress. Poor
linings- spoil a good shoe. Our shoomakers use good,
linings. Figure your shoe bill by the month or year
instead of the cost per pair, and our shoes will cost
one-third less than the shoes they call "cheap."

That Mass Meeting Saturday Afternoon
"Where is the Hood River Irrigating
company?" everybody was asking, after

It looked verv much non eBi
After the 300 farmers were called to
order, F. C. Bryant of the Hood River
irriuHt.inu com nan v stateu mat ma com
pany was ready to sell for $5,000, and
wanted the farmers of Hood River to buy
up the stock, issue $110,000 in bonds and
build tne aitcn, aecianng tuai uy hid
time the bonds reached maturity, in 20
or 80 years, the ditch would be the farm
ers', and their water would cost no more
thrn the operating expenses of the sys-
tem- ... i
It seems the new ditch company has
been balked in its efforts by the Mount
Hood Lumber company in refusing a
right of way at a point where water was
to be taken from Hood River. Lee
Morse asked Mr. Bryant if his company
would build the ditch provided the peo
ple of Hood River secured the right of
way now needed. Mr. Bryant declared
they wouldn't,, which brought H. M.
Abbott to his feet with the declaration
that his company would build if the
said right of way was secured. Mr. Ab-
."3. . i t -v
bott otlered a plan wnereDy iuu or more
farmers would buy not more than two
shares each at $1 a share, and thus be
come boniflde members of the company.
W. R. Hoole then arose and wanted
to know something of the assets of the
said Hood River Irrigating company.
Several other questions were asked by
Mr. Hoole and courteously answered by
On motion. Chairman E. L. Smith
named B. F. Shoemaker, A. A. Jayne
and Leslie Butler a committee to inves
tigate the proposition of the farmers
"swallowing up the old company," the
committee to meet in one week.
At this juncture, Mr. Shoemaker said
he heard it reported that Mr. Kincaid,
an Idaho capitalist behind the ditch,
bad recently failed. Mr. Shoemaker
thought there must be a "nigger in the
woodpile," somewhere, and he declared
hia intention of finding the nigger. He
demanded that Mr. Bryant read a cer
tain letter which he held in his band
from Mr. Kincaid. Bryant didn't want
to, but finally did read it, "Get my
monev out of the ditch. I am broke,"
read Mr. Bryant
Frank Davenport was called upon for
a speech. He said that since but few
of the farmers had come to him for
water, his company had concluded it
was no use to prepare for furnishing
more than 800 inches next season, ana
that those who want water will have to
hurry. He further said that if half the
encouragement had been given his com
pany that had been extended to strang
ers his ditch would now be in shape to
supply all the water the West Side
could use for years.
A motion to adjourn was carried with

Staten and family are home from their

cougar story. While fishing up the
West Fork one afternoon, Mr. Gessling
happened to glance to the other side of
the stream and there, stretched "on a
pile of drift wood, lay a 4 foot cougar.
Mr. Gessling had been standing for five
or ton minutes less than 30 feet from
the animal, and when he caught sight
of the cougar says he wasn't at all scared
but readily concluded the best fishing
was down the stream from that on.
