Seen at White Salmon.
The ko'hI thinirs In tills life are al
ways ripe if we are ready to harvest
them. The first four days of this month
were rich in pleasant aagociations and
bt'Mutlful gurroundings, an we were
then visiting at White Salmon.
At the ferry Uncling near the saw
mill we hoisted the white flag in token
of surrender, and to signify our willing
ness to be taken in, and soon heard the
pulling of the little launch that carried
us wifely aeroHs. The first person we
saw kh we started up the hill was a
young man on a large rock eating
grapes, and in answer to our inquiry
if he didn't think it "cheeky to be eat
ing grapes so near the highway," he
came smilingly and presented each of
us with a bunch of luscious grapes. I
suppose he was pleased to find some
one with an equal amount of "cheek.''
We were made to feel at home at the
Royal Aune farm of C. F. Waldo, on
Nob Hill, Jewett avenue, facing the
Columbia. Mr. Waldo's family con
sists of wife and daughter Edris E.,
father and mother Waldo, and Mother
Waldo's sister. The aunt is seriously
or rather painfully afflicted with a crip
pled right hand. Mr. Waldo has very
much improved the place by good cul
tivation, setting out trees and plants.
In a few years he will have a valuable
White Salmon has scenic beauties of
unsurpassed loveliness and grandeur,
and among them Hood River is a star
of dazzling brilliancy. On the 2d, Mr.
Jewett took us and Mrs. Waldo to see
the falls and to visit our Eden Dale
ranch that we had never seen. We
took lunch at the fulls, where there is a
new store kept by Mr. Williams, who
seems to be doing a good business. His
(laughter, Miss Delia, prepared lissome
coffee that made our lunch complete.
With the Jewett grapes, Mrs. Waldo's
cake and Mr. Waldo's wine, it could
not be called a dry dinner. The ride
from White Salmon to the falls was an
agreeable surprise, as we expected hills
and bad roads, but found it an even
grade and in good order. For about, a
mile along the precipitous bluff of the

Carpenter work on the Indian creek
bridge was completed this week, and as
soon as the grading and filling in is
completed at the edds, the bridge will
be open for traflic. This long-needed
piece of work has been finally accom
plished, and the public duly appre

A Rich Mine.
Ex-Lieut. Governor Thurston Daniels
of Vancouver, Wash., president of the
Humboldt Mining company of Spo
kane, has been in the citv this week.
He was accompanied by M. V. Rand of
University Park, a former well-known
townsman here. Mr. Daniels was here
in the interest of the Humboldt com
pany and has succeeded in interesting
certain of our citizens in the enterprise.
He has exhibited some very handsome
samples of ore from the mine, whieli
has the distinction of being the richest
discovery at the surface ever made on
the south half of the Colville reserva
tion. The company is now selling
stock, fully paid up and non-assessable,
ROOD RIVER SCHOOL REPORT. '
Following is the report of the Hood River Public School for the month end
ing Beptember 25, 1903:
White Salmon t he ride was thrilling to
a tenderfoot, and there was a disposi
tion to cling to the larboard side of the
seat; but we were assured that there
had never been an Accident there, and
we left that part of the road with the
hope that there never would be one,
Saturday, the 3d, we were taken out
two miles nortneast or white salmon
by N. M. Wood, to visit and inspect his
farm. Mr. Waldo and family were the
invited ones ana tney included us by
courtesy, and we were glad to have
been in the party. The soil on this
place is of volcanic ash formation, of
great ueptn ana tenuity, and 1 believe,
as he has demonstrated, that he ran
grow strawberries here successfully
without irrigation, if e lias on the up
per part of his place a natural reservoir
which, witli a trifling expense, he en
larged so as to water 10U acres of land
We met there, tiesides Mrs. Wood, Miss
Johnson, a granddaughter, and Mr.
Cooper, a nephew of the Woods. Miss
Johnson is teaching the White Salmon
school. There is an interesting school
at the falls, hut did not learn the name
of the teacher. The intelligent looks of
the children and the picturesque sur
roundings made a pleasant impression.
Sunday we spent at that model of
summer resorts, the Jewett home. It
is a garden of fruits and flowers, of fine
trees and shrubbery, of pleasant walks
and drives, of precipices and waterfalls,
of grottoes and gorges of flesh-creeping
depths, of magnificent views from the
different towers and lookouts a car
nival of natural and artistic beauties,
and I do not wonder that this popular
place is so crowded with the elite and
refined of Oregon's metropolis. Mrs.
Jewett was absent at Portland, where
her son is being treated at a sanatorium.
I attended services at the Congrega
tional church and listened to an inter
esting sermon by Mr. Garrison from
the text, "For we know in part," etc.
was much pleased with the sermon
but could not down the thought that
my greater experiences made me know
many who Knew it all.
The outlook for White Salmon Is very
flattering, and I know of no place
where investments of capital, skill or
labor may be more safely made.

about the first of April, there was not a

The trouble with Mr. Roberts is he
didn't know he ought to look up a better
source of information. The great trouble
with the gentleman is he thinks we are
going to receive those two large amounts
after the 15th of last June, whereas the
fact is we received them in our May ap
portionnient, which enabled us to pay our
indebtedness; and have a balance of
$510,51 on hand the 15th, of June.
We hope this explanation will be sat

about $l,52i).6li for school purposes this
year. When it's all paid in that is to
come yet, we will not have more than
half of that amount.
When the proper time comes our dis
trict clerk will make his report. We are
too busy just now attending to our own
business to pay any further attention to
Mr. Roberts. He still maintains that
the directors didn't visit the school be
cause he didn't find their names on the
register. We visited school at the close
of each school month in line of duty,
to drive its long-working tunnel, install
machinery and ' otherwise equip the
property. Other mines in the imme
diate vicinity are proving wonderfully
rich with development, notably tiie

Worth of Land for
heap, or Trade.
Also, H0RES, CATTLE, WAGONS, MILLS AND WATER.
The Valley Improvement company have contracted for about all the water they can furnish without enlarging the Hume. In Order to enlarge the flume the Davenport Bros, have decided
to sell land to the amount of $(50,000. This will beji bargain in lands, and will hold good for 30 days and then will be taken off the market. So you will "have to hurry" if you want some of it.
This sale will include the Barret t Ranch, the best
farm in Hood River valley. Four thousand fruit trees;
free water for a part of it; contains 180 acres; worth
$20,000, but will sell in a lump for $10,000 cah. Or
we will sell in .", 10, 15 and 20 acre lots to suit the
purchaser. This is a fine bargain at only $16,000
Also, the famous ranch known as the old E. L.
Smith place, near the Frunkton school house. This
place contains l."0 acres, with several fine cold springs
on the place, and nearly enough water to irrigate the
entire hind. Only 2' miles from town, with the Frank
ton school on the place, one of the best schools in the
valley. This place will be sold in small lots and will
all 1h gone inside of ten days, for $15,000
Next comes the old Van Johnson place, and this
will U included in this bargain sale. Worth $4,000,
but for the cash it will go for .'1,000. This place con
tains 40 acres, 2." in clover and timothy, ."00 bearing
apple tr(es, house and bam, nice wood shed, cold spring
at the door, good cellar, small hay barn, all the water
needed for the place from a private ditch from Ditch
creek. You can not afford to miss this at $3,000
Also, ten acres from the southeast corner of the old
Sipma place, all cleared and seeded to clover and tim
othy. Plenty of water for irrigating the entire place,
free. Well worth the price $2,000
Another 1G0 acres on Bald mountain, for 2,000
Twelve hundred acres 4 miles from town, worth ten
dollars per acre. We will sell for 8,000
3,300 acres up around Parker Town. This
land will be sold off in 80 and 100 aero lots for about
five dollars per acre, or the whole tract for about.. $15,000
M. M. Davenport has 13 acres for sale cheap. He will
also sell his house and lot, with 8 acres, cheap.
We are not offering this land cheap Itecnuse we are
hard up, but to help out the Valley Improvement Co. The
deeds to this land art' in the name of the Davenport Bros.,
hence there will be no commission. All the lands selcctM
by them for choice hay lands, as well as apples and straw
Iterrieo, all having free water more or less. These places
are the oldest places taken in Hood River, and are also the
best, as all of them have good cold springs on them.
AVe also have eight or ten large teams that we will sell
in the next thirtv davs, including harness and wagons.
Eighty head of cattle in good condition; two complete
Do not think because we are offering to sell that we are
going out of business, for none of this property is included
in our lumber business. The Davenport Bros. Lumber Co.
is incorporated for $."o,ooo, fully paid up. Their large
mill is now cutting 4o,ooo feet per day, and included in
this, besides their mill, is the water flume, timlwr, planing
mill, lumler, etc. We an? sure that this property will Im
sold inside of 3o days to men living right here in the val
ley, as the men know the bargains there are in it, and we
.are also sure they will not let theoutsidetakeup these snaps.
Call on Frank Duvendort, in the old bank building,
and look over the plat of the above lands.
