Froppr Treatment of Pneumonia.
Pneumonia is too dangerous a disease
for atjy one to attempt to doctor himself,
although ho may have the proper rem
edies at hand. A physician should al
ways be called. It should be borne in
mind, however, that pneumonia always
results from a cold or from an attack of
the grip, and that by giving Chamber
lain's Cough Iti-medy the threatened at
tack of pneumonia may be warded off.
This remedy is also used by physicians
in the treatment of pneumonia with the
nest results. Dr. W. J. Smith of San
ders, Ala., who is also a druguist, says
of it: "I have been selling Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy and prescribing it
in my practice for the, past six years. I
use it in cairn of pneumonia and have
always gotten the best results." Sold by
all druggists.
It Saved His Leg.

Kueklen's Arnica Salve wholly cured it
in rive days. For ulcers, wounds, piles,
it's the best ealve in the world. Cure
guaranteed. Only 25c. Sold by Chas.
N. Clarke, druggist
Tragedy Averted.
"Justin the nick of time onrlittle boy
was saved," writes Mrs. W. Watkins of
Pleasant City, Ohio. "Pneumonia had
played sad havoc with hinij.and a terri
ble cough set in l-egides. Doctors treat

but presents his arguments in a clear,
forcible and convincing manner. Every
seat in the opera house was filled, and
the audience gave him the closest at
tention throughout hisaddress. At the
close, a collection was taken to help
defray expense of the cause, Mr. Stew
art explaining that his was the only
party which, at national conventions,
received itemized statements of all
moneys received and disbursed. A

Hood River prohibition alliance, and

Valley (lunch C. E. Seles.
A very interesting and instructive re
port of the proceedings of the state En
deaxorers' convention wa given at the
Valley Christian church, Sunday even
ing, ar the Endeavor hour, by Miss
Cora Copple, our state delegate. Miss
Copple attended all the sessions cf the
convention at Pendleton, and her report
thereof was very full. In reading her
notet and dixcussing them, Miss Copple
occupied the entire time at her disposal,
and we, who had the pleasure of listen
ing to the many choice extracts which
her untiring peneil had preserved, re
gretted only that our hour of enjoyment
was so short-Miss Copple, alwavs enthus
iastic, brought with her from the con
vention, an increased supply of real
Christian enthusiasm, much of which
she imparted to her audienre.
A business meeting of the members of
the Christian Endeavor society was held
at the home of Mrs. Charles Copple on
last Friday evening. After some nec
essary business matters w ere disposed of,
the young folks devoted themselves to
the pleasures of taffy-prilling and other
appropriate exercises. The attendance,
considering the weather, was good.

A Plea for the Rural Carrier.
Hood River, Or.. Feb. 24, 1904. Ed
itor Glacier: From the congressional
dispatches in the Sunday Oregonian I
learn that the house committee on post
ollices and post roads has recommended
a raise of f 10 per month on the salaries
of rural carriers. This advance is not
enough, but this same committee also
had the nerve to insert this provision in
the bill: "On and after July 1. 1904. car
riers shall not solicit business or receive
orders of anv kind for anv oerson. firm
or corporation, and eliafl not, during
their hours oi employment, carry any
merchandise for hice.''
The parcels delivery permit is almost
equal in advantages to patrons to mail
delivery itself, and the receipts from it
are no insignificant part of the Carrier's
In this connection it is proper to call
attention to the fact that the salary of a
city carrier is $800 per year, and if he
drives a horse in the suburbs, lie is
given a subsistence allowance of $250
And now, what are we, the farmers of
the United States, gping to do about
this? It is as plain as day that we are
being "jobbed." Certain business in
terests have always been unfriendly to
rural free delivery, and since abandon
ing hope of destroying the system en
tirely, this new move has been made for
the purpose of forcing the farmers to
eo to town for every little article which
they happen to need, with the hope that
they will squander a few extra dimes
lor things wincn tney can do without.
It is now up to the farmers to fight for
their rights even it it amounts to the
abolishment of most of the cities and
towns entirely.
So, brother farmers, let every one of
us who hath breath, howl ! Let us howl
long and loud! Let every one who can
sign his name and put a few words of
English on paper write to our delegation
in congress and remind them of the
dreary wilderness surrounding the head
waters of Salt river, which will bo their
future abode if they stand idly by and
permit this infamous provision in the
bill to become a law. The stamp act,
the tea tax and the Dred Scott decision
pale into insignificance in comparison to
the injury which we would suffer.

The Deep Snow 20 Years Ago.
The recent spell of winter weather in
Hood River was very mild compared to
the deep Bnow of 20 years ago. , D. A.
Turner, an old timer in the valley, has
handed the Glacier several copies
of the Daily and Weekly Oregonian of
January, 1885, which contain interesting
accounts of the big snow storm that
winter, when an O. It. & N. passenger
train was snowbound, for three weeks
four miles abovo Wyeth. The Btorm at
Hood River began late in the afternoon
of Saturday, December 13, 1884, but did
not reach Portland until Monday noon.
An east wind accompanied the snow,
which fell steadily for three weeks until
there was five feet of snow on a level all
over Hood Rive vallev. According to
the Oregonian's daily meteorological re
port, on Tuesday, December 23, at The
Dalles, the snow was eight feet deep.
Passenger trains from the East found
the road blocked when they reached
The Dalles, Mondav, the Kith, and were
held there until Thursday, when the
snow plow reported, the track cleared to

One of the early pioneers ol the East Hide of
Jlood River, was born In Randolph county,
Missouri, September 21, 18:ifi. Leaving the old
home April 8, 1857, he came by way of the Isth
mus of Panama to California, where four
years were spent near the town of Ploccrvllie,
Eldorado cqjinty. In company with the lale
William Odell, he left Placerville for Wash
ington, then a territory. Lauding Ht Port
land, Oregon, they met an old friend ot Mr.
Odell's, and by his suggestion they came to
Hood River. This was In 1801. After spend-'
lng a few days looking over the valley, they
bought out the Interest of one Butler, a cooper,
who had located the place now known as the
Roberts ranch In the Odell district. In the
fall of 1862 Mr. Turner went to the old Auburn
mines, In Baker county, and spent a year on
the Auburn Canal Co.'s ditch and In the
mines at Mormon Basin. Returning to Hood
River, he bought the claim of William Moss,
In the Pins Grove neighborhood, where he
lived for 40 vears, or nntll two years ago.when
he sold his farm and moved to the city of
Hood River. Mr. Turner Is, next to Captain
Henry C. Coo, the oldest resident of Hood
River valley. He with his wife are members
of the M. E. church of Hood River. In poll
tics he Is a republican. During the 27 years
We have known Mr. Turner, he has never held
nor songht public office but would have been
an honor to bis part; had It chosen to call on
him to serve In any capacity.
Wyeth. The delayed train then started.
When with four miles of Wyeth a snow
slide completely buried both engines
and partially covered the mail and ex
press car, rendering the train en
tirely helpless. A passenger writing of
the blockade says:
"It continued snowing and blowing
incessantly, and the storm at this time
was little better than a hurricane. The
snow slide occurred about 2 o'clock
Thursday. Conductor Lyons took a
hasty view of the situation and was con
vinced we could, not move from here
until the storm kbattuf. He then started
on foot through a blinding snow and
wind storm for Wyetn, a telegraph sta
tion four miles distant, where he sent a
dispatch to Hood River for provisions.
"Next day a hand-sled arrived from
Hood River with such supplies as could
be transported under such circumstan
ces. We continued to receive supplies
from Hood River and Cascade Locks,
where 30 men under government employ
volunteered to pack in provisions, facing
cutting wind and blinding snow for 11
miles. Some of the party gave out on
the way and had to be assisted in, while
some were considerably frosted. They
arrived at the train about dark anil
were pitiable looking objets indeed. Up
to this time all had been furnished
with guffieent food to allay any great
hunger or inconvenience of the passen
gers, and none felt like making com
plaint, but submitted gracefully to the
condition of affairs and seemed to vie
with each other in singing, chatting,
card-plaving and visiting from car to
car to while away the time.
"For four days we remained here, the
storm raging all the time without, and
each day seeming morse than the pre
ceding one. It was Monday night after
the supplies had arrived from Cascade
Locks, that Conductor Lyon made his
appearance in our car and with much
feeling announced that he had come to
bid ns good-bye, and that on tomorrow
morning he would expect every able
bodied man to leave the train, as it was
useless to try to feed all here lon;rer.
Then might have been seen croups ol
anxious passengers earntly const iing
at to the best course to pursue, and each
one summing up the probabilities of his
being physically able to stand the trip
of eleven miles to Cascade Lpcks over
