Samuel B. Green, professor of horti
culture and forestry at the University
of Minnesota, spent last Friday in Hood
River, the guest of . L. Smith. Mr.
Smith and Mr. Green became acquainted
at the Buffalo meeting of the American
fomological society two years ago.
Professor Green spends his summers
traveling about the country, to UBe his
words, for the purpose of keeping cob
webs off his brain; to see what horticul-tnralii-ts
are doing in the different parte
of the Ui.ited States, and to gather new
ideas wherever they present themselves.
He was on the Pacific coast five years
ago and wanted to visit at Hood River
then, but his time would not permit it.
After a drive through the valley, Mr.
Green expressed himself as being highly
pleased with the fruit prospects of tlie
country. "Your town and valley,"
said ho, "present an appearance of a
rare degree of development." He was
very much pleased, with the push and
enterprise displayed by the buildings
and business iuterests of the town.
He thought the young orchards of
the valley showed better care and a
higher degree of cultivation than any
orchards he has seen.
Professor Greeu is enthusiastically
wrapped up in his work. His institu
tion is one of the finest of its kind in
the whole United States. In fact it is
the largest and best equipped agricul
tural ci liege in the country. The en
rollment last year was over 700. That
of tho state university was 4,000. The
proper idea of an agricultural college
appears to be carried out in the state of
The system of instruction is called an
agricultural high school course. Pupils
are taken from the grammar grades and
given a time year course in the agri
cultural school. There is no attempt to
compete with academies and collegiate
institutions. The list of studies are
practical brandies for farm students.
To exclude the city boys from the
school, six months experience on a
farm is required. After the course is
completed a certificate is granted. No
attempt is made at granting degrees.
Por tl os i students who wish to special
ize or to fit themselves for teachers in
th agricultural branches, an additional
con rne of one year is taught. This is
called the college of agriculture, and
grants a degree in agriculture.
Tin' state of Minnesota last year voted
an appropriation of $300,000 for . the
agricultural department ol the state
university. Mr. Green says the equip
ment of the institution is now valued at
1800,000. The annual expenditure is

old idea of education in the state of

Pine Grove, August 9. Editor Gla
cier : There are many in the neighbor
hood who have been trying r more
than a year to get the telephone service.
but It their enerts are ever crowned
with success there is good reason to be
lieve that their cup of joy , will not be

that the same tiling will not occur the
next week, the week after that, and so
on indefinitely, just as it has been occur-
ing every week or two since toe system
was installed over two years ago.
The writer has no bee in his bonnet
for running the "public utilities," and
when the project for operating a farm
ers co-operative line was agitated last
year, was among those who used his in
fluence against the plan, believing that
most people nave eoougn w uo in at

so long as they get fair treatment from
independent concerns. It looks now,
to even the most conservative, at if the
day is coming at a rapid gait when Hood
River people would have to assume an
other of the burdens of mankind.
'What are we going to do about these
weekly interruptions and every day
annoyances?" it a duestion which is be
ing freely discussed among the victims
of the present service. That the tele

New BuMness Firm.
A new business firm has opened out
in Hood River under the firm name of
Staten & Sanborn. Mr. Staten is a well
known citizen and owner of one of the
best farms in West Hood, River, situated
one and a halt miles west of town. His
partner, R. 8. Sanborn, is an attorney
recently from Salt Lake. Mr. Sanborn
came to Hood River a mouth ago to
visit his friend A. C. Staten. and inci
dentally to take a look at our valley of
which he had heard so much. He was
delighted with Hood River, but could
see no opening for another attorney
here, and so visited many other towns
in Oregon and Washington seeking for
a location. Ho attended the sessions of
the Development league of Portland and
was so impressed with the snowing
made bv Hood River that he determined
to return here and make his home. He
has rented the new cottage being built.
on River street in Idlewilde addition,
and in a few days his wife and child will
join him from Salt Lake. The new
firm has bought out the real estate busi
ness of C. L. Copple and will use the
same office until the completion of the
Smith block, when they will occupy
rooms in the second story of that build
ing. Both these gentlemen have full
confidence in the future of Hood River,
and will do their share towards making
our resources known to residents of less
favored localities. In the meantime
Mr. Hanborn, as an attorney at law, will
look after all legal matters that may
be Intrusted to his care. ,

Commissioner Hibbard says the
county court at the adjourned session
last week talked over the need of a new

to visit the bridge this week and decide

The new bridge will cost considerably
more than the present one did. The
timbers for stringers were1 secured sev

There is some call for a new bridge
over Rail creek gulch, but this bridge
says Mr. Hibbard is so propped up that
it is in fairly good condition, and possibly
the building df - the Tucker bridge,
which is badly needed, will exclude1 the
renewal of the Kail creek bridge this
summer. Plans for this bridge were
drawn over a year ago.

Dr. W. F. Laraway Dear Sir: The

beneficial. I was much troubled with
almost constant headache and aching of
the back of the neck. Since wearing
your glasses have had very little head
ache, and my general nervous system is
at rest from the strain I endured, and
my health is improving. Also the
glasses yon fitted for ray little girl has
quieted her nerves until now she has
a good" appetite, and also has perfect
rest at night, which she did not have
before. 1 cheerfully recommend your
services to all suffering from a defect of
the eyes. Also find your prices are
very reasonable, and within reach of
all. Respectfully Yours,

Keep Fires Within Bounds.
Chief Ranger Anderson came In yes
terday from a tour of the Cascade forest
reserve says The Dalles Mountaineer.
Mr. Anderson said he and the other
rangers had been kept busy the past
two weeks fighting fire, but had been
successful thus far in keeping the
flames within bounds. Fire start from
apparently unknown causes and spread
with great rapidity, everything be
ing perfectly dry. Had it not been for
for the presence of -the rangers in the
mountains, Mr. Anderson is of the
opinion that several large forest fires
would have occurred, but the rangers are
vigilant and whenever a fire is discov
ered they work day and night until it ia
put out. . .
