Stiff work at critical moment! gave
Sunday's game to Hood River, -lb
tie of seven to seven waa overcome in
the lad half of the niuth when Castner'a
batting helped Sheett tarn the trick
that left Vancouver with the small end
ot the score and no outs for the locals.
Charley Castner is THE second base
man of the town," says Dr.. Brosius,
lie knows all the fine points of bis
position." Charley was there to deliver
the gooas whenever wanted.
The battintr work ol the Hood Kiver
boys shows a decided improvement, but
as one of the fans expressed it after the
matinee Bunday, there were yellow
streaks in the work of the locals, par
ticularly in the fourth and fifth innings,
when they repeated for awhile the de
moralizing performances of the Sunday
previous. But the boys took a brace
after that and scored just when needed.
It was a bard fought game and one
good to see. The attendance was dis
appointment, and the management was
snort of the required sum lor expense
of the visitors.
It was nothing to nothing np to the
second half of the third, when with two
men on bases. Johnnie Castner found a
safe one that rolled far enouiih nnder
the fence to net three runs. Of course
there was vociferous cheering.
The detailed score shows Sheets to
have three runs to his credit. Sheets
is cue of the best bane runners on the
homo team. He takes advantage ot
every opportunity to make a base run,
and is never found waiting for the
hearse while the sack grows warm.
Some of the other plxyera could pick up
good pointers from Sheets in the man
ner in which he never lets slip the
slightest chance in which he can add
another run to the score. While not
careless he goes at it with the thought
that there is all to gain and nothing to
lose. Nine times out often he wins.
Too many of the locals are weak at base
running. I hey must wake up.

intr was accurate, and his whole manner
of plaving snappy and full of vim.
Slavin is a strong addition to the nine.
Tharn waved short stop and played

third during the game. Tliarp's playing
strengthened the team materially, and
his record testifies to his good playing.

Citizens Deman4 More Water.
There la a general complaint through'
out the city because oi the scarcity of
water.- A (.aacier representative called
on John Laland Henderson manager
of the water company, and asked him
what was to be done, but little satisfac
tion was gained from tha visit.
"When wa get a meeting oi the com'
pauy, there will possibly be something
to tay," replied Mr. ' Henderson. "It
has been impossible to get a meeting
during tbc berry season, but wa expect
to get together the first thing af tor tha
Fourth, if not sooner. I have been try
ing hard to get meeting and have
been ready at all times."
Mr. Henderson was of the opinion
that everything would have been lovely
had not the council monkted witn tne
last ordinance the company laid before
the city law-makera. "That ordinance
waa all rieht." remarked Mr. Hender
son, ''and il paaned would have resulted
in securing a 75,uuu water plum lor uie
city, but the council returned a set of
regulations that capitalists only laugiieo
When asked if the report was true
that the company was going to shut off
all water to motors and to prohibit
irrigation, he said that such matters
had been talked of. It seema that there
is plenty of water in the springs to sup
ply the needs of the lower town, In fact
there is said to be more water running
from the spring than goes into the res
ervoir. Water is also running over the
top of the reservoir because the mams
are too small to carry any more. The
mains are so small that the numerous
faucets attached take about all the
water there is aud in some instances
leave many of the faucets perfectly dry
part of the day.
When a new main is laid, Mr. Hen
derson thought that the company would
put down 12-inch main, auincient tor
all future needs of the city.

ox team and settling in Oregon City.
Later he removed to JAiayette, Win

possessed of the roving pioneer spirit,
and at one timo lived for seven years
with his nearest neighbor 40 miles dis

But a short time ago he expressed a
desire to seek a home in a less thickly
copulated country.

Lugging Operations to Cease.
The Oregon Lumber Co. will suspend
loinrinK operations on the head waters
of Hood River the first of July. This
cessation of logging may lie for only
four or five monttiH or perhaps lnilell
nitely, said W. H. Lcclos, general
manager of the company io a uiacier
representative. Mr. Kccles declared
this move had no particular significance
in the lumber business, except that
there was a general quietness in the
market. There are some 13,000,000 feet
of logs in the boom at the mouth ol
Hood River and along the banks of the
stream. These will keep the Hood
River mill in operation for four or five
Charles T. Early of the company,
informs the Glacier that an order hat
iust been received for 8.000,000 feet of
lumber for a new sugar beet plant,
which David Eccles and his associates
are to erect at Black (exit, Idaho.
In conversation with Frank Daven

the Glacier reporter was informed that
while orders are coming in daily for
lumber, there appears to be a tendency
on part of the lumber buyers to hear

apiece, Bays Mr. Davenport, and the
railroads are now endeavoring to lower
the price.

If a Portland peddler has apples or
strawberries to sell he always sticks up
the sign Hood Kiver. That is a compli
ment to Ihxxl River, of course, hut one
that is most exasperating to residents of
that place who may happen to be in
Portland and see the stun which is
offered as Hood River product. Peddlers
sometimes have good fruit to sell but
that does not need any sign ; its when
thev tret hold of something that needs a
reputation that the Hood River sign goes
up. Home of these days a Hood Kiver
man will be fined for committing assault

The efforts of tha strawberry growers
near Portland to make some arrange
ment which would insure a stable mar
ket for their crop came to nothing, al
though once or twice it appeared prob
able that such an arrangement would
be concluded. Tha need of such an ar
rangement has been apparent already
this season. On June 14, riht at the
beginning of the season, the impression
prevailed that there was an over supply
of berries and prices went down until
retailers were offering splendid lierries
at five cents per box. The next day
there were not enough berries to go
round. The quality of the berries is un
usually good and tha shipping varities
could be sent to a great distance II

knowiege employed at flood Kiver.

The last carload shipment of straw-
lierries for this season left Hood Kiver,
Mondav, night, making a total of 110
cars. This number, Mr. Davidson says,
will euual 70,000 crates, which
added to the 30,000 going out by express
makes the total number this year close
on to 100,000.
The berries are thinning out rapidly,
and in a very few days the last crate
will have been picked and shipped. A
few raspberries are being shipped, but
they amount to only a few crates a day.
The raspberries are bringing $2 a crate.
July will be a quiet month tor Hood
River fruit shippers. There will be a
few blackberries to ship, possibly 2,000
Plant Raspberries, Says Mr. Davidson.
"The strawberry season just closing
suggests a lesson or two that the farm
ers of Hood Kiver valley would do well
to learn," says H. F. Davidson of the
Davidson ruit Jo. "it demonstrates
that rotatiou of crops is best for straw
berries; it further teaches that the farm
ers should raise a few raspljerries and
"Land that has produced strawber
ries year after year snowed the need of
a change of crop this year. The fruit
was not of the quality that grew on
land that had been used for rotation of
crops, as clover or potatoes. A man
who puts but 12 of his 20 acres into
strawberries will reap more profits than
the farmer who places all of his 20-acre .
rauch into berries. He can give the 12
acres bester attention for the same cost
and by a change of plants onto new soil
every three or tour years tho quality of
the fruit will more than make up the
difference in the size of the patch.
Hood Kiver must produce a berry oi
fine quality to compete with the East
ern berry. This year a carload of ber
ries went all the way tot lowland, Ohio,
where the fruit was distributed into the
cities of western New York and Penn
sylvania. The fruit is said to have
arrived in very fine shape. But the
dealers there say they cannot handle
anything less than a four tier berry.
There are plenty of home grown five
tier berries, and to get a fancy price for
the Oregon berries the fruit must be a.
fancy article. In Chicago the Hood
Kiver berries sold lor just twice what
the Michigan berries brought. But tho
berries must be extra fancy or the $1 a
crate freight bills will eat away all the
'Kaspbcmes are now going at K a
crate, and there is not enough of the
fruit to till the orders we receive. Kvery
farmer Bhould plant a few, a half acre
or so. lliey are oi little trouble ami
can he pluntod along the fence next to
the irrigating ditches. If the valley
hud the berries, tho cannery could afford
to pay 4 cents a pound for raspberries
and possibly 5 cents. I wouldn't advise
the farmers to plant extensively to
raspberries, possibly a half acre or so,
just what a farmer and his family can
take care of without additional expense.
The four or five crates a day he could
bring to town would go a long way
toward paying his grocery bill. Tho
Cuthbort raspberry docs well in Hood
"If there were enough of a variety of
fruit grown hero the cannery could use
more of it. As it is now, strawberries
are the only fruit for cunning extensive
ly, r ew dealers care to handle a car
loud oi canned strawberries, but if we
could put upa mixed car of strawberries,
raspberries, cherries, tomatoes, etc., we
could find easier markets fir the can
nery products, and we could in this
manner dispose of more canned straw
berries. "Hood River can grow tho bust strawr
terries in the world, that's a fact. But
the farmers must expect to do business
at a smaller profit per cnilo. Unless
they see a dollar profit per crate too
many of the growers will let the fruit
rot on the vines. This is poor business.
The merchant figures on marginal prof
its and the shrewd farmer must do
likewise if he looks for success in his
Called Them Hood Kiver Berries.
The Portland evening papers of last
Thursday reported that the Front street
markets wore flooded with Hood River
strawberries; that the prices had fallen
so in the East that the fruit was being
sent into Portland again. There wits
not a bit of truth in the storv. The
Fruit Growers' Union, the Davidson
Fruit Co. and independent shippers had
sent uo berries to Portland on the. pre
ceding day. The only berries leaving
Hood River for Portland that day, ac- .
cording to the express receipts in the
Hood River depot, were one or two
crates sent to private parties.
No Hood River berries had gone to
Portland during the whole week, with
the exception of some crates which tho
Davidson Fruit Co. sent to the Holmes
cannery, and which brought them
cents a pound.
Berries Reach Nt. Louis in Fine Shape.
Mrs. James Ingulls received word
last week that a box of strawberries
which she sent to her brother, Herbert
Balch, at Ht Louis, reached there after
an 84-pour journey in an express car,
with not a Bingle spoiled berry. The
strawberries were grown on the Ingalls
farm in the Barrett district, and Mrs.
ingalls says the berries when picked
were just beginning to color. The
agent at the depot as he received the
fruit for shipment declared it would be
entirely spoiled before reaching the
