A housewife of Hood River bought
two doien "fresh" ranch eggs at a store
in town. Six. of the 24 were rotten.
They were eggs just brought in, the
merchant said Some "honest" farm

once a week the day they go to town.
It matters not to these people if setting
hens bavs been industriously at work
on nests of these eggs during the week.
They are intended for store eggs, any
how, anl all go at the same price.
Ferment who gather eggs every day,
and can guarantee them fresh and
sound, should receive at least 5 cents a
down more than the careless ones who
dump their rotten eggs with the goo 1
on the market. '
Complaints are frequent by fanners
of sneak thieves entering their orchards
and gardens by night and stealing (mil
and vegetables. There is not a farmer
or fruit grower in the valley but would
give his neighbor melons or fruit if he
came in daylight to make a friendly
call. When the dishonest neighbor
comes at night to. steal peaches or plug
watermelons he deserves to be plugged
with buckshot. No mercy should be
shown any one caught stealing in Hood

E. L. Smith returned, Sunday, from
the meeting of the Oregon Development
league at Baker City. Mr. Smith says
there was a lot of wholesome enthusiasm
manifest at this meeting, and the whole
of Eastern Oregon seems determined to
reap every benefit it can from the gen

A large party of Portlandera were there.

During the course of hia travela over

towns the peer of this one, saya Mr.
Blowers, but taken all in all, but few
places are ahead of Hood River.

great things lor the luture.
Hottest August for Tears.
Old timers have all said the month of
Auguat just passed was the hottest
known in this country for years, but
those who are newer to the country
were tempted to doubt the memory of
those who have had the good fortune to
live nere longer. Hut figures must be
taken at their lace value.
D. N. Byerlee, the local weatlfer ob
server fur Hood River, finds on com
paring hia monthly report for August
with the reports of the corresponding
tuootht for previous years, that this last
month was the hottest by many de
grees. The average mean temperature
for the month Just, closed was 117.
while for August, 1903, it was 50.0; 1902,
49 7: 1001.52.2.
The mean maximum for August, ac
cording to Mr. Byerlee s report, was
78.91, and the highest temperature re
corded wat w, on Auguat 3. ineave
age minimum temperature was 68 93,
and the lowest temperature for any one
day was 45, on the last day of the
month. This fame tempi-rut lire was
reached once or twice during the month.
The prevailing wind was from the
test for the first 23 days (if the month.
Then it came from the east for two days
and returned to the went, continuing
thus until the last day of the month,
when it switched to the east.
There was no precipitation until the
27th, when the rain gauge showed a
trace. The following day .38 inches of
rain fell. The greatest dally range of
temperature occurred on the 24th, when
the difference between the maximum
and the minimum was 43 degrees.

READY TO GIVE
THE CITY WATER
H. L. Vorse, manager for the Hood
River Electric Light, Power and Water
t.tlla tin. ilm ii.i that. Ins cotnimnv
is prepared to give the city of Hood
Kiver water for fire protection, and that
his company means business when he
makes the statement.
"We are here lor business, wo have
the watir to supply, and mean to offer
tlie people a just and equitable proposi
tion," remarked Mr. Vorse.
"Insurance today on stocks and busi
ncss blocks is costing Hood River mer
chants and owners $12,300 per annum,"
continued Mr. Vorse. "Much of this is
at 10 per cent, the maximum rate. Any
additional lisk means cancellation of
policy, but underwriters will allow a 20
to 25 per cent discount on this annual
premium ui.der their prescribed system
of tire protection.
"The Hood River Electric Light,
Power and Water Co. stands ready to
supply the required service, and allow
such reasonable me us the city can
make of hydrant water, at an annual
rental less than one-third the amount
saved from insurance premiums.
"It would be possible, if work Is be
gun immediately, to construct the sys
tem and have it in a condition to give
Bervice January 1, 1005. We would tup
ply water for audi service from the to-be-completed
reservoir at June street
and county road, under pressure of 103
pounds per square inch at tire present
post office location, and the source of
supply will be first the spring! now
owned by the company, which are de
livering more than 570,010 gallons of
water r day. Assuming a consump
tion of 40 gallons per capita per day,
which includes fire service, this quan
tity would meet the needs of a city of
over 14,000 iuhubitants.
"But this company will agree to main
tain a given number of cubic feet of
water in said reservoir at all times even
fliould it mean pumping from Hood
river. We have under way the laying
of lli.OOO feet of 8, 0 and 4-inch pipe on
"Immediately following this will be an
improvement in the domestic service
below the hill, calculated to give all con
sumers an ample supply of water.
Should this company enter into contract
with the city to supply a water service
for fire protection it will ask a reason
able time only in which to install the
system, and will give substantial bond
guaranteeing faithlul performance of
contract on its part.
"Improvements in our lighting plant
are under way. New light circuits will
be placed ou the hill and ourjighting
capacity increased to meet every de
mand. "From this time, let it be understood
we are for progress. We mean to be,
and shall be, reasonable and just with
the city and the individual."
Will Mot Rebuild Before Spring.
II. F. Davidson of the Davidson Fruit
Co. says ho will not rebuild his fruit
cannery and warehouses before spring.
The company has not perfected plans as
yet, and will wait until the first of next
year before rebuilding.
Mr. Davidson says he will likely cut
out some of his business and branch out
in others, but is unprepared now to say
just what will lie done.
The insurance people have reported
favorably on the loss, and Mr. Davidson
has been assured that he will be recom
pensed to the full amount of his insu
rance, some $17,000.
