HOOD RIVER GLACIER, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 1904.
Paves Divers, one of the earliest set
tlers in the Hood River valley, died
Thursday night. August 25, at the age
of 711. The old man had heen failing
for some time, and was being cared for
in his declining hours by the friendly
hands of the Neff Bros , at the home of
Frank Neff of the East Side.
Mr. Divers was bom in Virginia,
February 9, 1825. He was married in
his native state, and in 1843 moved to
Missouri. In 1852 he crossed the plains
to Oregon, settling on the Clackamas
river. Not being satisfied with his
location there, in the summer of 1862,
he drove over the Barlow road to The
Dalles, and thence to Hood Kiver, being
the first man to bring a wagon over the
mountains from The Dalles. How he
did it, with nothing but an Indian trail
to follow, was certainly remarkable,
says D. A. Turner, the one surviving
pioneer who was living here when
Daves Divers joined the link-settlement
in Hood Kiver.
Arriving here with his wife, four
children, two yoke of cattle, two cows,
and $27.50 in cash, Mr. Divers settled
on the meadow lands of upper Hood
River, on the property since known as
the Divers' place. Mere his family of
boys grew to manhood, and his wife
died six years ago.
At the death of his wife, Mr. Divers
was left alone in the world, two of his
sons having died and the others having
deserted the old home.' His land hold
ings, representing the accumulations of
a lifetime were sold to Judge Prather,
and at the request of the old man, Neff
Bros, promised to care for him when he
could no longer help himself. The Neff
boys were faithful to the old pioneer's
Many are the kind words heard of
Mr. Divers from those who knew him.
He was hard working, faithful and
honest, und it is said of him that he
was never known to do harm to anyone.
He hail four sons, John, James, Joseph
and William. John and William are
dead, while the other two are scattered
somewhere to different parts of the
When Mr. Divers reached Hood River
in the month of AuguRt, 42 years ago,
there were but three families residing
on the West Side of the valley. They
were Nathaniel Coe, father of Captain
H. C. Coe, who still lives on a portion
of the original homestead in the west
end of the city, Jenkins, owner of the
Jenkins' donation claim, now the prop
erty of Dr. W. L. Adams, and A. C.
Phelps, who resided then on what is
now the Frank Chandler property on
the creek that bears the' name of that
On the east side of the valley were
the families of N . Benson, who resided
on the Frank Button place, John Stan
ley at Mosier, 1). A. Turner and William
Odell in the Odell neighborhood, and
Harrison and Hardin Coruin. This is
the list as furnished the Glacier by Mr.
Divers two years ago.
Mr. Turner, the sole survivor of the
early Hood River pioneers of the East
Side, gives the following list of settlers:
Nathaniel Benson, Nathaniel Coe,
Jenkins, A. C. Phelps, James Benson,
who cultivated what is now the Lamar
place at the Indian creek bridge, Peter
Seal, father-in-law to Mr. Turner,
William Odell on the Roberts' place,
William Moss and Butler, whom Mr.
Turner later bought out.
Funeral services were conducted Sun
day morning at the Pino Grove church,
Rev. Dillingerof the Belmont church
conducting the services. Mr. Divers
had been a life long member of the
Methodist church. Interment was
made in the Pine Grove cemetery, where
Mrs. Divers was b".ried six years ago.
There was a large attendance at the
Offers New Winter Spray.
J. W. Kirkwood offers the people of
Hood River a new winter spray which
he says is the lest yet. This spray he
declares gives the actual effect sought
for and is free from theorism, as he ex
presses it. Here is the formula:
Winter Spray. One pound of concen
trated lye ; two pounds of copperas ; one
pound of powdered borax, one-half
gallon of coal oil ; 10 gallons of water.
"This spray will exterminate every
insect of the apple, cherry, peach and
pear that it comes in contact with,"
Bays Mr. Kirkwood. "If used in the
winter it will also lessen the trouble of
the codlin moth, as the home of this
moth after it leaves the apples in the
fall is under the loose bark of the trunk
and limbs of the tree, and the leavesun
der the tree. For this reason I would
advise every one in the apple business
to pick up every chunk and piece of
bark in the orchard. I would aUo have
wire fences with posts planed smooth.
This would lessen the opportunities for
the moth to find lodgment for its winter
Mr. Kirkwood Is not a friend of the
Bordeaux mixture and other winter
sprays that adhere to the branches and
leaves of the trees. This he says closes
the pores of the trees with a mixture
which hesays is detrimental to the fruit
and will often times bring affected
places from the bark of the tree to the
core of the apple, especially in the case
of the Yellow Newtown.
Mr. Kirkwood is anxious for some
of the practical fruit men of Hood River
to experiment with his spray, which he
has developed as a winter spray. He
believes this spray may be brought to a
suite of perfection that will make it the
best spray for the codlin moth, and all
other insects that try the patience of
the fruit grower.
His formula is given above, and he
says he would like to see it applied in
the bh miner months, as there is noth
ing in his mixture to stop up-the pores
of the tree, which means that no bad
effect can result to the tree from its use.
This mixture is original with Mr. Kirk
wood and is known as the Kirkwood
mixture. To an unsophisticated ten
derfoot a can of concentrated lye
to It! gallons of water looks like
pretty strong drink. Something like
Jersey Lightning. It might be well to
experiment with it on a single branch or
some tree that you. want to kill anyway,
first, before trying it on a whole orchard
of our big red apples. Ed.)
Has Water of His Owu on the Hill.
II. C. Btranahan has erected a 2000-
allon tank and a windmill on bis resi
ciice property on the hill, and proposes
to have all the water he can use next
year for both domestic und irrigation
His well is 5G feet deep and contains
six feet and more of water. The wind
mill is kept going most of the time, and
aud there is plenty of water in the well
at all times. Mr. Stranahan says he
has his house all piped and plumbing of
the latest approved patterns put in,
and proposes to take comfort from now
on. Water is alo supplied to all parts
of his barn and there are hose attach
ments in different parts of his yard.
The tank is 20 feet high, which affords
. sufficient pressure to throw a stream of
water over the root ol ins house. He
will have all the water he can . use and
more too, he says. The well and plumb
ing cost him, he says, KiUO, but he will
more than make interest on the invest
ment bv having free water from now on.
He will have a supply equal to $5 worth
of water each month.
Shonld Get Around And See Things.
An ioe cave has been discovered near
Bend, and this is as it should be, for
the town has been afflicted with a super
abundance of "hot air" waves for some
time. This may have the effect to re
duce the temperature of the individuals
to a normal condition. By the way, it
would take a half-doxen ice caves to re
duce the caloric in the atmosphere
around the little town of Hood River
to an ordinary, sensible, matter-of-fact
situation. Dalles Chronicle.
It is told of a Dalles young man when
nearing his majority, that he asked his
father's permission to go out and see
the world. His father granted him per
mission provided he would go on foot.
He tied his personal offectsup in a ban
danna one fine morning and took the
hill road for Hood River. Three long,
weary days he traversed the valley and
then, in the silent watches of the night
decided to return to home and mother.
Arriving there at night, dusty, footsore,
and weary, he saluted his father, em
braced iiis mother, and as the house
dog came bounding in to welcome him
remarked :"Why, mother, you still have
the same old dog!" And when his fath
er asked him what he thought of the
world, replied: "I didn't get clear
'round, but if the world's as big on the
other side as it is on the side I went
out on' she's a buster; and say, Dad,
I have found a place that's the nearest
to heaven yet. We've lived in this old
hole long enough, let's move to Hood
River." So, if our little sister up the
creek will wash her dirty little face,
comb her frowzv head, don her Sundav
frock and come to Hood River to the
apple fair in October she will see some
thing that will make her pretty eyes
brighten, take that cross-grained look
from her face and the sad, brown taste
from tier little rosebud of a mouth.
Come, Sissy, be good and maybe we
will allow you to attach yourself as a
suDurD to Hood Kiver.

of Oregon, whereas it cost them not one

insurance company accept the good will

In the way of introduction, the editor
of the News-Letter says :
"Quite likely the chronic croaker will
say it requires inst as hard work to earn
a living in the Northwest as in the East,
or anywhere else that weeding sugar
beets in Oregon makes the back ache
just as badly as pulling beans in New
York, etc. We suspect our contributors
would not deny the assumption, nor
deprecate the fact. They would say
the Northwest is no place for the man
or woman who is looking for an easy
job with good pay ; but that it does offer
unusual opportunities to men and
women of ambition and spirit and are
willing to work ; and that is the best
kind of a country.
"We have baen thinking about the
spirit of enthusiasm, of pride and of
boundless hope which is so characteris

spirit has been matched by achieve

The Irrigator endorses every word of
the above, and wishes particularly to
emphasize the last sentence. Hood
River has done wonders, and how and
why? because she has had a number
of men who have early and late, at
every time and season, and in every
locality and section talked Hood Kiver
and upheld it as the one bright partic
ular spot on earth.
These people had faith in their local
ity, and above all they bad faith in
themselves and in their own judgment,
and they took every fair and honorable
means of telling the people far and wide,
about their beautiful town and its man
For a town of her days Irrigon has
done as well as Hood River. We have
not hidden our light under a bushel.
We have probably sent out twenty
times as much advertising matter as
any town in the state, according to com

sowing our literature in every quarter
of the world, and intend to continue
doing so. Until we equal Hood River?
Aye, and until the present generation

SAYS FARMERS SHOULD
E. W. Sander of La Grange, Ills., who
has read of Hood River through the
Glacier, was in the valley last week,
week. Mr. Sander is on a tour of the
Pacific coast states, and if be finds a lo
cality that suits him, he expects to in
vest in some lands. To a Glacier report
er Mr. Sander expressed himself pleased
with the prospect here.
"Although the valley along with the
rest of this section was shrouded to
some extent in a haze of smoke from
the forest fires to the west, enough of
the beautiful natural scenery was vis
ible to convince any one that what has
been said in its praise is well merited,"
Bays Mr. Sander.
"The evidence of great fertility of soil
here is plainly at hand in the form of
products now in process of being har
vested, also in the fruit now maturing
on the trees and vines. A continuously
prosiierous future seems assured, and as
the farmers of the valley learn to econo
mize and make the best use of the nat
ural resources, they mmt surely grow
wealthy and healthy and they should be
"One thing which impressed me
somewhat unfavorably is the tendency
of many plauters to undertake more
than they can attend to to good advan
tage. As a consequence their places do
not appear well. It is my opinion that
many of the farmers here make a great
mistake in selling so much of their clo
ver hay instead of feeding it on the land.
There is a scarcity of cows and dairy
products altogether too evident.
"The many new orchards now plant'
ed which will come Into bearing in the
near future call for increased shipping
facilities and capacity for handling all
of which will serve to make the city of
nood Kiver prosperous along with the
valley above it.
Inside Tips For the Irrigator.
Hood River, Ore., August 22. Ediior
Glacier: When irrigating water is
alxmt to be meted out to you for the
first time, see that proper arrangements
are made to receive it.
Have a good ditch made along the
upper edge of the field you propose to
begin on, and see that it is opened so
as to carry the water clear past into
your neighbor's held, the county road
or any old place.
When the water comes along begin
operations at the head of the ditch by
letting out streamlets that you can
easily handle. If you undertake to
turn a big stream of water onto a piece
of newly plowed land all at once, you
will be almost sure to express yourself
on irrigation in a way that will gnaw
at your conscience later, if you are a
man of ordinary scruples. And, fur
thermore, if you get up some morning
and find that by some inscrutable
means, a stream of water about three
times as big as you are paying for has
stolen down upon you like a thief in
the night and the surplus has broken
out and washed a ditch two feet deep
across your field, don't growl at the
ditch people. They are men of many
sorrows and are sensitive to rebuke like
ordinary mortals. Buch outbreaks do
not come of malice nor do they happen
often, but it is well to be cocked for
everything that comes your way. Also
be thankful that the wash wasn't four
feet deep instead of only two, and re
serve your kicks until a time when you
are not getting water enough.
Chirks Seedling in California.
The strawberry season is just closing
at Del Norte in the San Luis valley, and
in writing of his year's experience I. N.
Slater says: "I am growing the Hood
River or Chirks Seedling quite success
fully. I saved only a few of the first
plants received one year ago last spring.
This spring I sent for more, and I never
saw plants uo better. They did even
better than my own grown plants so
strong and of such fine, dark green col
or. It is a perfect bloomer. I picked a
handful of fruit from one-year-old vines
and found them delicious in flavor and
of good color. I cannot tell you how
well they will yield but in their own
country they are the only berry and it
is claimed that they can be shipped to
any place in the United States, and on
one occasion a case was carried to the
Philippines just to see if it were pos
sible. It arrived there in good condition.
The Wilson has been my favorite and
is a good berry to raise up here as it is
late, a good shipper, ot excellent flavor
and yields well." Field and Farm.
Olinger Captures Bicycle Thief.
Marshal Olinger bagged a bold bicycle
thief last Wednesday night. The young
man gave his name as JN.w Samlersuu.
He had stolen the bicycle of J. C. Hob

Dalles, after Marshal Wood of that city
had leen led a merry chase for ten miles
out of the city. Wood was down from

Praise Hood River Singers.
The concert given on Saturday even
ing bv Mr. Smith, Miss Hartley and
Miss Kelsay from Hood River, was a
success in every respect but financially.
Owing to the busy season only a few of
our townpeople turned out. Those that
were not there missed a treat in the way
of good music. The members of the
company acquitted themselves with
credit. Mr. Smith is a strong tenor, and
Miss Hartley, has a very sweet soprano.
Mr. Smith contemplates the teaching
of music in our town during the coining
