As i clone in Wheeler county it should
be in Hood River. The Journal says:
The county of Wheeler in general and
the town of Fossil in particular, are to
be congratulated upon the location of
the county high school in Fossil, which
is an ideal school town. Beginning
next September, at the head of the high
school ami public school in Fossil there
will be one of the very best teachers in
the state of Oregon, and no Wheeler
county pupil need leave until he or she
is lit to enter the leading universities or
business profession! in the country.- Pu
pils from other counties will be admit
ted on payment of reasonable charges.
As the years roll by it will be Been
more and more that Wheeler county
did one of the wisest things in its whole
career when it voted to establish a high
school within its limits.
The proposition to build a flour mill
at Hood Uiver is a good one, as it will
add another industry to the city, in
creasing the employment of labor, and
add its hare to the population and
wealth of the community. The prompt
ness with which Mr. Alpin'i project
mot with response at the meeting of the
Commercial club Tuesday night, shows
that the business men are ready to lend
help to anything that will benefit the
city, and are ready to pull together to
keep Hood Hiver to the front. While
the thins of the new project are not
fully made public, yet the b.isiness men
who have subscribed stock in the new
enterprise are assured that the parties
back of the mill project mean business,
and will put up suflicient guarantee of
good faith before the money Is collected.
The annual catalogue of the Oregon
State Normal school at Monmouth
comes out this year with a decided im
provement In style and general makeup.
A glance at its contents indicutes that
President Messier has instituted new
life into the institution in its every
department. With the consolidation of
all the normal schools of the stale under
one head, Oregon would soon possess a
training school for teachers equal to the
best in the Eastern states.
W, H. Eccles' suggestion to experi
ment with sugar beets in Hood Klver,
. mention of which is made in another
column, may be a good thing for the
new Commercial club to assist in. If
beels should prove a profitable crop
here, and a factory could, be located in
Hood Kiver, it means added wealth to
the community. A crop that will net

the new sawmill site of Davenport Bros.
Here a new town is building, and here
they draw the lugs tip out of a deep ra
vine a half mile away with the big don
key engine the company received here
last winter. Daveiiort liroa. are doing
a wonderful l' t of work in this Green
Point country. Leaving our wagon
at I'arkertown we packed the remainder
of the way in. Just out of I'arkertown
we made the ascent of the highest hil!
in the neighborhood over one of the
very best of mountain roads, recently
made by the company. It is broad and
smooth and free from rocks and stumps,
and has an easy grade. From the sum
mil one obtains the finest view of the
entire East Side. From the summit it
is a short, easy descent to Cedar lake,
where Foreman Hart is in charge of a
crew constructing a dam across the low-'
er end of the lake. At the same time
the logs and brush in the lake are being
hauled, piled and burned. The lake
has been drained and kept free from
water during the ojierations. Here
the lumber comnanv ninect In tilace
their big mill this fall, and float the logs
from (ireen Point, six or seven miles
away through a ditch now in course
of construction down to this lake, the
lake, when the dam is finished, will cover
40 acres with water from two to 25 feet
deep, and the dam looks like it might be
heavy enough for a section of the defen
ses of Port Arthur. From the mill
flume will be built to connect witli the
old flume at Parkcrbiwn and thus con

is fir with a very little white pine and
enough white fir to supply Hood Uiver
with box lumber lor a generation. Alt
er the timber is cleared off there are
hundreds of acres of tine land, level as a
floor, where the decayed vegetation of
thousands of years lies ready to lie used
in the growing of the grandest meadow
crops the world has ever seen. The
snow here gets from six to ten feet deep
and deeper, which certainly would pro
hibit the extensive planting of apples
and other tree fruits.
From Cedar lake, where Davenpsrt
Bros, already have thousands of cedar
fence posts corded up awaiting the time
when water connection will be made
with thu outside, we pushed on through
the great firs along Itear creek, five, six
or sever, feet in diameter, 100 to 150
feet to a limb, in places so thick they
couldn't grow any way but up, and as
straight as a lino. Canired on Ifear

a crew putting the ditch through to the
lake with about two or three weeks' work
ahead of them. Wo pasBcd the camp
about a mile when the trail ran into
the ditch which proved miry in places,
and the bank of the ditch too narrow
to admit the pannage of the pack train.

Mr. Wagonblast, A. J. Chnbot and an

Two cars of Hood River strawberries
went all the way to Massachusetts, says
II. F. Davidson of the Davidson Fruit
Co. The cars were sent from here to
Omaha, but finding a full market there,
they were sent on to Chicago. Meeting
the same market conditions there the
fruit was sent on to Massachusetts. It
may seem almost incredible, but Mr.
Davidson says that reports have come
in that one of the cars reached there in
ood shape. The second car, which was
onger on the road, probably did not fare
so well, though no report has been re
ceived of its condition upon arrival.
Strawberry returns are coming rather
slowly, so Mr. Davidson informs the
