HOOD RIVER GLACIER, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1803.
I assume all responsibility for what ap.
pears In this column. SEYMOUR W.
Charles. A. Alvord, Earnest Kiihn
hausen and Benjamin F. Miller of KulUa
were in town, Tuesday, on business be
fore the United States land commission
er. John Farr of Goble, Columbia county,
Or., a lumber merchant, was in town,
Tuitsday, on land business.
White Salmon pays out through Wol
fard & Co., alone, $1,200 per year for mill
feed for stock. We import practically allot
our side meat, hams and breakfast ba
con. We also import a great quantity
of hay. The hay and bacon we ought
to produce at home, or at least a large
part of it.
Rev. Mr. Uarrison preached Sunday
of last week about the prodigal son. The
sermon was very high.y spoken of by
those who heard it and the seats were
we I filled. The minister emphasized
the foresight of the father, his great and
generous love for the wayward boy. lie
gave him enough rope to let him gather
in his experience and when the poor
boy's heart turned to the old home
again, the father's welcome was ready.
The generous love of the father rather
than the experience or quality of the
prodigal being the real meat of the story.
Fathers sometimes forge, to forgive and
are stern and unrelenting, but mothers
never fail in generous love going out to
wards the wayward boy.
The masquerade ball given Thanks
giving evening wag a great success. The
iloor was crowded with dancers and the
room was'filled with spectators. Prizes
were awarded as follows: Best dressed
lady, Miss tiforgia Johnson. Miss John
son represented "June Rose" and under
her burden of beautiful roses fairly won
mat prize. .Best dressed gentleman,
Clarence Rankin "Spanish Prince."
Best sustained comic lady character,
Miss Lydia Crowe, whose troubles as a
wash-woman were fully exploited with
tub and washboard and "the old man's
socks." Rest sustained comic gentle
man character, Merl Fox as "Hayseed,"
who did the part to a finish. Others
did their stunts well. By Hamilton, as
usual, played his part to perfection.
Many would hiue uccorded him a prize.
Ilia "Irish Dude,'' would have pleased
the "gallery gods" at a theater, where
lie would shine. Every body too old ortoo
good to dance went to look on and all
enjoyed the occasion.
8. C. Ziegler's residence is nearing
completion. It commands a great view
of meadow, river and mountain. Zeig
ler is an, example of what industry and
frugality and sense can do with a very
few acres at White Salmon. Moore
has been splendidly demonstrating the
same thing; so has Egan and McClure
and Adams and Shurte.
Among the larger farms, where farming
is of a more general kind, we have the
Byrkett and Henderson places.
There places have what the upland
lacks magnificent Meadow lands where
alfalfa grows luxuriantly and dairy
hords revel in luscious grass. Mr. Hen
derson leans toward stock raising and
alfalfa hay, while Byrkett is center
ing more and more on strawberries.
He has under-tiled and brought under
cultivation some of the richest land on
earth and now has about 20 acres ready
for berry crops. On the first plateau
above, the largest place is that of A. II.
Jewett, who is an early settler. Mr. and
Mrs. Jewett keep summer guests and all
summer long their house is filled to
overflowing. Being a summer resort
beauty has not been sacrificed to thrift
at the Jewett home. A beautiful and
an extensive lawn lies about the house,
and one of the most picturesque canons
containing the cascades of Joslyn creek
forms its eastern boundary. For scenic
beauty it is a rare and inspiringspot-This
short sketch completes a birds-eye view
from the river front (is far north as the
county road to Binge n.
North of the county road live the rest
of us. Facing that thorough-fare you
first discover the townsito. On the south
or bluff side, in new buildings are the
Bancroft market, the Roth feed store,
the Crowe & Gearheart drugstore and
the Groshong blacksmith shop, with
dear, old Grandpa Swan sandwiched in
between the last two named. Then to
the left are the Peck hotel, T. Wyers, sr.
and jr., and Dick Krepps. On the right
or north side of the road are the Con
gregational church, a very neat little
building, plastered, carpeted and well
painted and the new parsonage built by
the energy of the pastor, Kev. Mr. Gar
rison, assisted by the generosity of the
people of White Salmon and the church
extension board. Next comes the new
and nicely furnished residence of C. F.
Waldo, and following this comes the
Wolfard home and then the printing
Next is the large merchantile establish
ment of C. M. Wolfard & company. It
has out grown the old name of "store,"
and does an immense business, having,
bo far, a monopoly of the market with
a firm grip on both the local and tribu
tary trade. Near the store is the house
of Mr. Lnuterbach, who owns 100 acres
of land "right in town." Then w- come

to the new and cozy home of P. A. Tra
na, and next to the school house, and
this is a good place to quit, for that
school house cannot be described in
clean, chaste words. The subject is full
of pathos, brimstone and things, and
there are people who are so sensitive.
They "built up this country," including
the school house, and woe be unto him
who pokes them while they peacefully
snore away the remaining years while
Along the Trout Lake road leading out
of town northward are Main & Bowman,
on the old Jacobson place, George Thom
as, Jim Hancock and the Hunsakers,
and then juu are out of town again
among the murmuring pines.
Speaking of the old school house, the
new coiner with his family to be edu
cated didn't have to come. And if the
new comer don't submit and lie down in
the wallow and enjoy the smell and sun
sh'ne there are human buzzards to pry
into the precincts of his home and bis
White Salmon is fast filling up with
a fair-minded class of people, the great
majority of the older residents are of
the same kind and character. Together
they can and will have control as against
the Silurians in school matters.
When the legislature gave two-fifths
of the voters at a school election the
power to block the advancement of a
community and advertise it as a place
indifferent to its schools and the inter
ests of the children of its homes they
were banking on the intelligence
of the people to protect their own fire
sides. When a man of any public spirit
comes into a community and those who
"built up the country" ask him to"keep
his pawze off our edukashional fassih
ties w hile we take keer of your children
ferye the same os -we hev our own,"
he is likely to decline with thanks and
clear decks for an engagement.
The "forninet" people have succeed
ed in doing two things here in White
Salmon. Ihey have advertised to the
world their own existence in numbers
sufficient to prevent the building of a
much-needed school house, and they
have succeeded, by filing an affidavit,
known as the "Turner Affidavit'" and
threatening a contest, in preventing the
sale of the school bonds as low as 4
per cent rate of interest.
The clerk of the board has the evi
dence of this lost opportunity in his
possession and any patron of the school
may see it for himself if he will call and
at-k for it. Now, the voters who were
misguided and honest in their objections
see their mistake and as soon as the
opportunity comes will be glad to leave
those who misled them to stand alone
Another vote will be had, the bonds
will be gladly carried by an overwhelm
ing vote, the money will be secured at a
very low rate and peace with decency
will reign. We all will be proud of our
new school house and to visitors we will
point to it with pride and use it as an
argument-a truly patriotic and American
argument why they should locate on this
Bide of the Columbia in a place where
school houses are honored even above
churches as they should be. The American
home, and next to that, the American
common school. He who would raise his
arm to strike at either is a publicenemy.
When that sentiment rules in White
Salmon desirable settlers will no longer
look about them and cross into Oregon
to build homes on a less favored soil.
Our school house ought to be the cen
ter of our community life,, held sacred
in our keeping and very close to our
SEYMOUR W. CONDON.

dirt at the mouth of a hole in the bank

baud into the opening and felt a bear.He
stepped back and took a shot at the an

excited, began a hurried retreat, but
Dick grabbed him by the tail and held
