On our dock is a notice by the D. '.

property, and to look at it is trespass.
As a simple decoration it is a dismal

Notes From Underwood.
Mrs. Mary Olsen came home from
Kalama to spend a week or ten days on
her farm and to visit with relatives and
Mrs. Amos and Mrs. Ed Underwood
came home from the huckleberry patch
Sunday evening. They had so many
berries that Mrs. Ed Underwood and
daughter, Mrs.Brown, had to walk most
of the way home. They all got a good
soaking, for it rained most all day. They
expected to meet a team and hack at
the forks of the road, but the driver
did not fancy sitting out in the rain, so
came home before the berry pickers
came to the main road. It was almost
8 o'clock when they reached home. The
huckleberry mountain is a delightful
place for a summer outing, (especially
when it rains.)
J. J. Luckey and Abe Foley were
visitors at Underwood Sunday. They
brought over a small sized blacksmith
shop and put in the day shoeing and
resetting shoes on Will Coulter's logging
teams. "
There was a dance at Moee Thornton'
Monday night. All enjoyed themselves.
At least they all say they had a good
Charlie and Mose Thornton came
home for a week's visit with friends and
relatives. Thev expect to return to
their work in a logging camp at Wood
land, Wash., where they have been
since the strawberry harvest.
Nearly everybody from everywhere
has expressed their opinion about the
boats.and I think it time for the Under
wood settlers to say something. We are
all tor the Spencer for the reason that
we have been treated so outrageously
mean by the Regulator liue. We ;are
all for the Spencer, and there is not .one
from this landing but will support tlw
boat as long as it stays on the river,
which we hope will be permanent.
Many a time has there beensomeone,and
very often quite a number, who would
stand on the beach and wave and -call to
the Regulator and Dalles City, but they
ncer would land. The captains would
seem to become suddenly blind when at
or near Underwood landing. But not
so with the Charles It. Spencer. It baa
passed the landing but very few .times
without landing. The few times it did
not land thero was nothing to (and for.
So, long live the Siencer. We all wish
the good luck apd prosperity to the
Spencer and h9r good-natured and ac
commodating manager and captaian
they so richly deserve.

Some on. vr ting from Dukes valley,
in last week'r Ulaoier, was a little pre
mature in announcing that John Thorn
sen of The Dalle bad donated a 25
bell for onr new school building. Ws
have been unable to learn of any snch
good fortune. A bell would be rather
oat of place, as we have no belfry to put
it in.

yet worked oat h amount are request

Cameron and family took dinner with
W. C. Dodge last Sunday.
L. and H. Dodson and Milton Bi Ira
nian had quite an excitiug adventure
with a oougar on the Wiman hill Satur
day night. While coming home from
the logging camp up the river, the con
gar followed them quite a distance, and
we understand it tried to bluff Den out
of the road hist Wednesday night, but
after he threw some rocks at it, the ani
mal concluded to give the right of way
We heard a noise the last few days as
if Mount Hood were in the throws of a
mighty eruption, but when the people
came to investigate, it was found that it
was Joseph A. fCnox blowing out, with
powder, nig stumps from his clearing.
A. J. Kessell and family were the

Odell Notes.
W, P. Connaway, cashier of the Van
couver National bank, of Vancouver,
Wash., and an old time friend of the
writer, came up Saturday and spent
Sunday at the Little White Store. Mr.
Conna way's former home was Independ
ence, Or., where he was cashier of the
First National bank for several years. In
1898 he was appointed receiver of a bank
at Moscow, Idaho, which position he
held for three years, and through the
influence of Hon. Henry Corbett of
Portland secured this position, which
he filled faithfully and well to a finish.
Mr. Connaway was formerly from Mis
souri, and you have "to show him," so
I showed him Hood River valley Sunday.
It all proved a revelation to him, and,
like all strangers who look ietelligently
over our yalley and investigate its won
derful resources, was wild with enthusi
asm and gave a glowing word picture of
its future.
The recent sale of apples by the apple
growers' union at such fancy prices is
one of the best arguments in favor of
the valley that can be need, especially
so, when we remember that the larger
the output the higher the price.
The Odell brothers and Jake Lenz
passed Odell this morning for a week's
hunt at the bace of Mount Defiance.
These people are sturdy mountaineers,
as well as skillful hunters, so we expect
to have bear and venison steaks on their
School opened at Odell, Monday, under
favorable auspices. Miss Blanche Wil
son, the principal, comes well recom
mended, and no doubt will do excellent
work. -'
The wood business is good this season.
Two parties from Arlington are clam
oring for all the wood the Little White
Store has, and at good prices. Mr. Con
naway informs me that, last rriday, a
large contract was signed at Vancouver
at $4.49 per cord, for four-foot wood. If
the forests are not taken care of the
wood question will prove a serious one
in a few years.
Phillip Kollas furnished the Little
White Store, last Saturday, with deli
cions Crawford peaches, two varieties of
(Trapes, and a lovely boquet of roses.
Mr. Kollas has a fine orchard and vin
vard. And knows how to keen it.. The
hills near Odell under intelligent culture
will yield fortunes untold in a few years.
H. T. Williams, of Hood River, w ho
is authority on horticulture, told me
yesterday, that he had traveled through
39 states, and that he knew of no spot
in the United States that produces the
net returns that Hood River valley is
now doing. I think this is the opinion
of all who give the matter careful study.
And the fact that the Davidson Fruit
company were the successful bidders lie
fore the apple union is worthy of note
it means that they not only have a
thorough knowledge of and strong faith
in the country, but have the ability to
handle its products in large quantities
C. A. Wyman finally closed the deal
on his place and is preparing to leave
Odell. Mr. Wyman is an excellent citi
zen and worthy the confidence of the
people with whom he Bhall cast his lot
for the future. His family will be
missed at Odell, but may the future be
bright for him and his family.
James English has sold all of his oak
wood to parties in Eastern Oregon.
