The Hoosier society of Hood River
valley held Its annual reunion at K. of
P. hall on the evening of February 22.
The Hoosiers know how to do things,
and of course the social was a success in
every sense of the word, notwithstand
ing the fact that Jupiter Pluvius reigned
on that particular evening, waking it
about the most disagreeable spell of
weamer we nave uud ttiis winter, a
short programme was rendered in hap
py manner by all who took part in it.
S. . Bartmesa called the meeting to
order, and after a piano solo by Mrs.
Regester, C. 1J. Cash, orator for the
occasion, delivered his oration, extracts
from which we give, and regret that
lack of space prevents publishing it in
full. A vocal solo by Earl Bartraess
was excellent. Little Miss Hollowell,
in her sweet voice, gave a recitation
in a charming manner. K. . Reges
ter, the Hoosier poet for the occasion,
read bis poem and was roundly ap
plauded. Miss Florence Ilanna favor
ed the audience with a piano solo well
executed. George Wilson recited Ar
tetnus Ward's interview with royalty
In a manner that showed him to be
well up in that kind of work. The
singing by the quartette composed of
Mrs. E. E. Regester, Mrs. O. B. Hart
ley, C. B. Cash and E. E. Regester was
finely rendered, Mrs. Regester taking
the leading part. Miss Ida M. Wright
read an able paper, entitled VThe Hoo
sier Boy the Oregon Man."
After the lendition of the programme
77 of the happy crowd sat down to a
feast of good things. J. M. Hollowell
contributed to the feast by supplying
the tables with liberal quantities of
his choice and crisp celery. T. C.
Dallas presided over the coffee pot,

Following are selections from the
ORATION BY C. B. CASH.
"I cannot refrain from comrratulat
lng my fellow Hoosiers in whose minds
was begotten the thought of a gather
ing like this. First of all. I wish to
commend them on the very auspicious
time selected for our annual eatberinz.
The mouth of February has another
star annea to its galaxy or important
events. February 22, 1732, shines out
from the pages of history as marking
the birth of that nobleman of earth,
George Washington. February 12,1809,
beheld the springing Into life of no
less a noDieman, although or different

Ana finally, rebruary 22, 1903, may
boast of the honor of being witness to
the inception of the annual reunion of
tne Hoosiers or Uood Klver. Butchietlv
do I thus express myself because I feel
me great neea ot social intercourse.
There Is need of a constant reunion.
We are too much inclined to shut our
selves up in the counting bouse or
place ourselves behind the counter or
the plow, and begin the strife for indi
vidual existence, while our social na
ture goes a-beturine. Especially has
this condition been observed of the
West. How often do you hear it said,
How Independent are our Western
neighbors!1 Our friends have afforded
us one opportunity to revoke that com
ment. "It appeals to us as beinir no less
than the most fitting thing that we
pause for a moment to pay our tribute
to the honored Washington and Lin
coln before passing to matters of more
immediate interest to those here pres
ent. I shall not attempt a character
sKeicn. i nave neither the time nor
the courage to begin the task, however
pleasant it might prove to be. Neither
shall I detail their lives In contrast or
comparison. I cast aside all compar
atives and superlatives and simply, say,
nay grandly say, they equal tn great
ness. Washington, witii his advan
tage of wealth and position, turned
everything to the advantage of bis fel
lows, his country. After all, his great
est possession was his character. Lin
coln, with his poverty, was abundantly
rich in manliness, the acknowledged
peer of Washington. After all, the
greatest tribute we can pay a man,
which of course means woman, too, is
that he possessed true manliness, a
synonym for God-likeness, and that he
made the best of his opportunity. It
lies within the possibiliy of every sou
and daughter of earth to achieve this
"I am now reminded that we must
come to those matters of more immed
iate interest to ourselves here and now.
It should not be our habit, as I con
ceive it, to dwell upon the excellencies
of Hoosierdom, although we meet as
Hoosiers. All praise and honor to the
state of our birth, but we have left her
parental shelter, and have sought what
to ninny of us is a more congenial
clime. 'New times, new climes, new
lands, new men but still the same old
tears, old crimes and oldest ill." In
diana Is good, but let us not be so sec
tional that we chii not say there may
lie better. Let us at least be cosmopol
itan enough to make a home and love
it where nature blesses us with the ne
cessities of life and nit abundance of
scenery nonpareil. At the same time
let us know that w herever we ore 'the
same old tears, old crimes and old ills'
are evr with us, and we need the
hearty sympathy and cheer of one an
other to lear us up. May ihis question
then rest on the heart of every one as
we meet in social relation, What is
your present need? How 'may I be
helpful to you here and now? What
will moft liearly conserve ur existing
"Deur IhMwiers, it is demanded of us
that we have strong conviction and
sland by them. Men and women will
seek social recreation. If not here,then
there. If not pure, then impure. But
we dure not cater to the whims of all.
The moment we undertake it we lose
everything. Again, narrowing the
circle a little, w bat are the ueeds of our
most immediate neighborhood, the
home? All are aware that the home is
the foundation of the community.
How Important, then, that we con
sider its needs. I do not pretend to ad
vise you here. I feel my own inability
too keenly. I only axk you to think
with me and determine if there be any
thing lacking. Of one thing I am as
sured, that in this region, where nature
and climate leuds sncb abundant aid,
every one may beautify his borne."
E. E. Regester, selected as "Hoosier
poet" for the occasion, read his poem,

Miss Ida M. Wright read her paper,

"learn tneir letters" sitting on the long,

Now, too, of a sudden, flashes Into
our minds another picture. Many of
these dear primitive folk have left us
and we see clear outlined against the
moonlit sky a little country church
yard with its white stones standing
here aud there, silently and solemnly
pointing out to us each Just where our
loved ones are. And so, dear friends, I
think tonight though we may boast
of Oregon's scenery and of Oregon's
climate and of Oregon's history that
we'll bow our heads In reverence at

his early home iu Wabash, where even
yet or until a very short time ago, at

Scarcely any other state in the Union
considering .its size or resources can
present any greater diversity of man
ufactures than Indiaua. In the south
ern part of the state are found cotton
mills, woolen mills, paper mills. At
South Bend is located the largest wagon
woras in tue woria. Here, years ago,
the six Studebaker brothers, each ap
plying himself to a different part of the
work, started to make wagons in a lit
tle building. They first branched out
by manufacturing wagons to be used
in the overland trade to California aud
to Oregon. Then they took a contract
to furnish wagons or carryalls of anv
kind used by the goverr.ment during
tlie war. They manufactured President
Harrison's entire outfit, thus sending
the first carriage to the white house
made west of the Allegbenit. Today
the Studebaker wagons and buggies
are used all over the world, and as our
hearts gladden to see the little white
mail wagon coming down the road, we
may also be gratified in the thought
that the wagon first rolled tout of a
