From Uncle Luke.
Parsons, Kans., Oct. 12, 1903. Editor
Glacier: All's well and having a good
time as usual. I went to Peabody, Kan
sas, about the middle of the state, to
see a niece, who used to be Mable Hodg
son. Crops never better, just enough
rain for the farmers to push the market,
price and all right along. I am going to
California with a party to eat orangeB
and have a good time ; will start the
last of this month. I think I will be
be more satisfled there, for there will be
more excitement and something new to
see every day.
I would be more homesick here if it
was not for the Glacier, but I read it and
know what the home folks are doing,
and by that way my mind is taken off
from the lonesomeness that will exist in
spite of everything. '
I have visited quite a good many postB
while I have been here. There stilt sur
vive some of the old soldiers.
Today it is raining and very dreary,
but when the sun conies out t he atmo
sphere will be altogether changed. The
nights are very cold, but during the day
it warms up and you would never know
that Kansas was subject to such very
cold nights. Uncle Lukb.

Pleased With Hood River.
Mrs. E. H. Meeker of Portland was a
guest of Mrs. S. F. Blythe overSunday.
Mrs. Meeker is aniokl-tiiiie neighbor of the
Blythe's in Portland and has frequently
visited Hood River, but this time had
not been to Hood River for eight years.
Although a constant reader of the Gla
cier, she was surprised to find the
changes that had taken place in Hood
River. Sunday she was taken out for a
drive through the valley. At Sears &
Porter's place she was taken through
the orchards and the big apple house
and saw what could be accomplished
here under intelligent management.
Bears & Porter have storage room in
their apple house for 7,300 boxes of
apples, but their apple house will not'
hold the crop this year. Of Yellow
Newtowns alone they . will havo 2,400
boxes, or four carloads. fcSorae of their
eight-vear-old Newtown trpes produced
over ten boxes of perfect apple. One
fmr-year-old Wagoner tree which last
year yielded 13 apples over a bn full,
this year has four lioxesof ptrfeei apples.
Mr. Sears says the Wagoner. . is a good
apple, is a piolific and early benrur,and
for this reason is a good tree to ine as a
filler where trees are niiHsing in an or
chard Sears & Porter are not members
of the local apple growers' union They
ship indeendeiitly and also buy anil
ship for others. Mrs. Meeker returned
to Portland by boat Monday ueiming,
well pleased with her trip and delighted
with Hood River.
The city council met in regular ses
sion Monday night with a full attend
ance. Present Mayor T. R. Coon;
Councilmen Blowers, II. F. Davidson,
P. S. Davidson, Gessling, Mayes, Pra
ther J Recorder Nickeleen, Marshal Cun
Councilman 1'rather as chairman of
the health committee reported that
every effort was being made to prevent
the spread of small pox, and that the
marsnai naa ueen nuinomea to serve
notice on households said to have sick
ness, but where no physician is em
ployed, that a doctor's certificate must
be furnished within 12 hours showing
whether or not any contagious disease
existed there. If no report is made the
marshal has authority to enforce quaran
tine. The ordinance requiring all phy
sicians to report to the health officer
(the marshal) all cases .'of contagious
diseases under their care will be enforced.
This action of the health committee was'
approved by a vote of t1w council. ' f
the sewer committee was unable to
report and asked for extension rf time
until next meeting. . L Mavor Coon ap
peared provoked, but there being no
objection the request was granted..
warrants were ordered drawn in pay
ment for the following bills:

A bill of 1200 for expenses incurred in
enforcement of the liquor ordinance was
held over for itemized statement.

erty. , !

Farewell to Mrs. Treat.
The woman's alliance of the Unitarian
church met with Mrs. E. L. Smith Fri
day afternoon, and enjoyed a short pro
gramme and lunch in honor of one oftheir
most valued members.Mrg. Sarah Treat,
who left for Portland Monday. Mrs.
Treat was presented with a beautiful
napkin ring and bag, and the following
poem written by Mrs. Rand was read:

W. 8. Boorman of Frankton has one
of the finest, if not the finest, potato
patches in the valley. " The tubers are
of three or four different varieties, and
each kind seems to have tried to out-do
its neighbor. The White Star potato is
one, and a most excellent variety. If
you scratch the dirt away from some of
the big hills without disturbing the tu
bers you will tind great big white pota
toes almost as long as a stick of stove
wood and lyine so close together, all of
them pointing towards the hill, remind

with the other varieties. The ground
seems full of them. His satanic majes
ty from the Glacier oliice accompanied
by his better half went up to help dig
the spuds last Friday. They dug six
rows and picked up 41 eacks of nice
marketable potatoes and about a half a
sack, all there was in the six rows that
were too small to market. Scott has
been modestly estimating the crop at
1,000 sacks.He has 200 ros, which if they
average only the same as those harvest
ed Friday, will make the crop 1,400 sacks,
and our devil says he will bet a first
mortgage on a bee line that the five
acres will'yield over 1,500' sacks. ;
