The logger had a surplus of logs on

When Mr. Sawyer reached Hood Riv

the mills of the Coast Hutiea Co., and to
do so had to walk four er live miles on a
narrow plank walk beside an elevated
flume. The fact that be wan .75 feet
from the ground with nothing but the

Strawberries at Kennewlck.
George Lacy . of - KfnnewU'k, the
Country on the we"t aide of the Colum
bia opposite the mouth of the Snake rtv
er.which ha recently been reclaimed by
an extensive irrigating svi-tein put in by
the Northern Pacifie railroad -company,
was in Hood Hiver the first of the week
looking Ihe valley over and gathering
ideas on the growing of strawberries. .
Mr. Lacy say the farmers of his
country are goiiig ii to the fruit buiness
quite extensively, ami that possibly 150
acre have been planted to strawberries.
A few were raised a a sort of experi
ment this spring and found lo be a
success. Some of the fruit, he says,
found it way to Chicago. The fl ret
shipment was a crate'' sent to Spokane
on ihe 10th of May. This makes that
lection a trifle earlier than Hood River.
The berries grown there are the I larks

Mff Lcy was surprised to -tee such a
beautiful country here. ' He had often
passed through here on the train, but
wa unable that way to form any idea
of the country here. - He thouuht it a
very beautiful valley, and considered
the scenic attraction one of the strong
feature of the country. He did nut
know there wa such fine, very fine
scenery here and swyt this should be
more advertised than It 1. People
know Hood River ia a great fruit country,-but
they have little knowledge of
the attraction as a mininer resort, says
Mr. Lacy. .
He also believe an electric Mad up
the valley would lie a paying venture,.
Camper .He. 4 Pay Toll. ;
" Owing to the persistent refusal of a
certain clan of people, who have come
to Cloud t ap Inn to camp, lo pay the
toll on the hill-road leading io the Inn
anil mountain, in the future no person
will be allowed lo stop on the ground
under any circuiuaUnoet . unlets they
pay toll on arrival. . .
Certain person in Hood River have
taken it upon themselves to-say we
have no right to collect such toll.
Where they received such an assertion
I do not know. .. .
The road is taxed by the county aa a
ton road as l ran aliow.
We have never charged anyone for
using the ground to camp on, jexx-et-
ing the loll to pay tor the privilege, but
now that it baa been to gnsjsly abused,
there will 1m? no more favors allowed
while I am in charge of the Inn.
Everyone has lieeu allowed to uee
what wood they wanted, end . camp
where water wa hundy ; now as I have
to get a permit to use Ihe wood, any
one wanting any will have to ask for It.
I thank all thoo -patron -wlm in, the
past have paid (or the privileges -they
have had. They will always be welcome,
but those who have uhused them will
never be allowed here atiuiii.
