Los Angeles, Cal., August 31, 1904.
Editor Glacier: In behalf of the Hood
River delegation now in California, I
take pleasure in sending you the photo
graph presented herewith. I took it
last Sunday at the residence of VV. P.
Watson, at Long Beach, lie has a beau
tiful home, surrounded with all of the
tropical flowers and plants known to
Southern California. R. R. Erwin is
quite busy, getting his family, located,
but he says he is getting lazy like all
the rest of the people in this place.
M. A. Cook has a r' ctty place near
Mr. Watson's. He ata has a variety of
fruit and vegetables jil his place.
One thing so noticeable here is the
large number of tourists. Every day
seems like a holiday. I have been on
a vacation and spent most of my time
at Long Beach. Every day the esti
mate of the visitors varied from 1000 to
We have had 40 days of very warm
weather. All the old timers say it is
the hottest summer since 79. I think
they have so much of this torrid at
mosphere, that the brain becomes fa
tigued with the heat, which also affects
the memory. They forget the same as
the moesbacks about the last winter,but
as far as I am concerned, I don't like
this country in the summer time. The
winters, what I saw of them, are fine.
Now about fruit and vegetables. Ore
gon can skin this country alive. Their
main apple is the Belletiower, and I
understand the crop is very Bhort this
year. One merchant said the price
would go past $2 per box very soon.
The strawberries are not of a good
quality, and full of sand, caused by
flooding them in irrigation. I have
found very few good potatoes ;they seem
to be spongy, also other vegetables such
as carr .its, cabbage, horseradish, and
especially the little radishes are stringy
and pithy. But they grow anything
here, and in abundance, that is, if they
have water, and that is somewhat of a
problem as yet.
One man told me he had one acre of
land planted to cucumbers for pickle
purposes. He said that his wife and
two daughters, a son and four hired men
picked pickles day and night for60days,
and when they got through there was a
carload of cucumbers gone to seed that
they could not handle.
Another man said that James Hill
& Son have paid him $300 here if they
would quit bringing pickles as they
could not handle all of the crop they
had contracted for. But I think some
of these farmers will wake up some day
and get a hard fall. Anyway, the only
system is to irrigate and keep at it.
The railroads east of here have been
demoralized by floods the past 10 days.
Cloudbursts seem to be popular, quite
fashionable in Southeastern California
and Western Arizona, causing great loss
of property and some lives.
l often think of Hood River, and
some sweet day, by and by, you may
see me upon your streets again.

Should Market Only Good Fruit.
C. H. Williamson, of Quincy, 111.,
touched upon a question of great im
portance when he expressed the belief
that it would pay dealers to handle only
the best fruit and not encourage grow
ers of inferior grades. He believed it a
du'yofthe Apple Shippers' association
to take a firm stand on this question.
Members had come to the convention
each year confessing that their losses
had come from handling poor fruit. He
thought the association should say to
the trade: "We will put nothing in
storage but No. 1 apples." He would
dispose of No. 2 apples in bulk, He
would never let them go on the market
in barrels. He gave excellent reasons
for this plan. The inferior apples if
sold in bulk, without storage, would in
sure a man who could be so foolish as
U) store them, against loss by such pro
cedure. Again, these No. 2 apples
would not be in storage to swell storage
receipts, thus injuring the market for
the No. 1 goo Is The American public
wanted excellence. They are willing to
pay for a good-Article, and they should
be humored.
Dealers had worked on the theory
that profits could be made from quanti
ty and not quality of goods handled.
This was a false theory, and should be
abandoned. The grower must make
his orchard healthy to be able to give
a good apple. Fruit from unhealthy
( rchanls, while it might pass inspec
tion when fust gathered, as No. 1 fruit,
yet after being taken out of storage, will
show up to great disadvantage beside
fruit grown in healthy orchards. The
dealer must regard the grower who pro
duces good fruit, so that he will abandon
the raising of the lower grades, and
strive to grow only that which is excel
lent M r. Williamson's views received strong
endorsement. In his address, President
Weaver took the jiosition that if buyers
generally were inflexible ill their determi
nation to buy a barrel of No. 2 apples,
losses would be less frequent and the
chances for profit greatly increased. He
contended that as long as the buyer pays
as much for an inferioi article as for su
perior apples there is but little enduro
ment for the grower to put forth the ex
tra effort required to produce a fancy
product and the producer, consumer
and shipper are done a grave injustice
by indinerence to quality.
'This brings a question of vital import'
ance to the attention of tho growers, as
well as shippers. Does it pay to grow
inferior fruit? Should buyers not make
a irreater distinction between gradea in
making their purchases? Chicago

Jack Nealeigh returned Thursday
afternoon after putting in 28 days in the
harvest hems ot Sherman county, where
he was employed the greater part of the
time on the farm of Billy Jackson, son
of F. M. Jackson of the East Side.
Jack reports the crops in Sherman
county very good. Mr. Jackson threshed
about 2000 sacks. Last week wheat was
selling at 68 cents. Those farmers who
stayed with it during the years of
depression in the wheat business have
come through all right, says Jack, and
most ot them are now in a position to
get rich.
Horses are a good price in Sherman
county says Mr. Nealeigh, but cattle
and hogs are aliout half the price they
are rated at here. He says a good cow
can be purchased there for 25. Pigs
are relatively as cheap. Mr. Nealeigh
had bargained to bring a half dozen
shoats back with him, but he says the
Columbia Southern railroad demanded
such an exhorbitant freight rate that he
could not afford to make the purchase.
That railroad has a sinch, he Bays, and
is working the monopoly racket to the
full limit.
Jack says he may return during the
week, as wages are good in that country,
and threshing is expected to continue
until the first of November. Jack says
he runs across Hood River boys every
day or so. The heavy rain of last Sat
urday made but a light shower there
Sunday afternoon.
More Rain Is Needed.
The weekly crop bulletin for August

Favorable temperatures prevailed
during the week, which was dry tip to

increased and showers and thunder
storms occured nearly everywhere in the
northern portion of the state. The rains
were rather light in the valleys, but
fuirlvsood amounts fell in the foothills
and mountains. These rains cleared the
atmosphere of smoke and were beneficial
to late crops, but more ram is needea
for potatoes, gardens and pasturage.
The fall wheat crop has been cut,
thrashed and a large part of it hauled to
the warehouses. It turned out very
satisfactorily in nearly all parts of the
State. Spring wheat cutting is well
along, and in the Willamette valley it is
practically completed and mostly all
thrashed. Spring wheat and oats are
yielding better than expected earlier'in
the season, but both crops are below the
average in quanity, though above the
average in quality.- Corn is doing
remarkably well, ana that planted early
is now being harvested. Hops are matur
ing rather slowly and picking will not
become general until next week. The
crop promises to be lighter than last
year, but with favorable weather from
now on the quality will be above the
average. Pasturage is very short and
except in tide land sections, dairy herds
have to be ted about as much as in mid
winter in order to keep up the flow of
Apples and peaches are ripe and plenti
ful in the market. French prunes will
yield a full crop, but the Italians are the
lightert in years.
Geta Moss Here For St. Louis Fair.
A. F. Miller who is traveling over the
state in the interest of the Oregon com
missioners for the St.Louis fair.was here
Thursday, and drove out to the Mount
Hood settlement, and secured a large
lot of tree moss wanted in St. Louis by
Superintendent Wehrung for decorative
Mr. Miller says President Myers of
Portland is arranging with E. L. Smith
for an apple display at St.Louis.The Or
egon exhibit at St. Louis, as every one
admits, is a very poor representation of
the productiveness ot the Oregon soil,
and an effort will be made the next two
months to secure some good fruit ex
hibits. From Milton and the Grande Ronde
valley Mr. Miller secured considerable
fruit and agricultural exhibits. At
Echo he says he got some very fine sug
ar cane. Apples in Eastern Oregon are
very badly effected with codlin moth
this summer, The orchardists there do
not spray after the manner of the Hood
River fruit growers. Peaches in that
country are a full crop says Mr. Miller.
Mr. Miller saya he finds considerable
interest manifested in the coming state
fair at Salem. While Eastern Oregon
farmers and fruit men do not make
much of an exhibit at the Salem fair,
Mr. Miller says there will be a large
number of Eastern horses at the tair.

Pension List Nearingr a Million.
The annual report of Pension Com'
missioner Ware shows that the govern
ment has dealt very liberally with pen
sion claimants in the northwest during
the past year, bb evidenced by a large
increase in the number of pensions
and in the amount of money paid. In
Oregon where there were 6,177 pen
sioners in 1903 drawing pensions ag
gregating $778,773, there were during
last year 7,607 pensioners to whom the
government paid $968,928.
The increase in the number of pen
sioners in tire northwestern states is
largely due to the allowance of a large
number of Indian war pension claims
or soldiers or relatives of those who
Berved in the Spanish war.
The report shows that during the
year the cost of maintaining the pen
sion svstem of the government has
been $144,741,787. The appropriation
for this purpose was $146,461 ,296, leav
ing an unexpended balance of $1,706,
500. During the year 47,374 pereons
were added to and 49,157 dropped from
the pension list.

"What would we have done for a road
into town this summer had it not been
for that special tax the people of Pine
Grove levied last wiuter?'' remarked
Supervisor Hans Lage as he dropped
into the Glacier oflice last Saturday to
tell the devil his hot shot at the little
Dalles newspaper was greatly appre
ciated by himself and neighbors.
that special tax produced 11041,
continued Mr. Lage, "and all of it was
used in repairing the East Side grade,
the piece of road that last winter was
absolutely impassable, and for awhile
compelled the rural carrier to suspend
tne service, i expected the property
tax to return at least $300 additional,
but instead it produced but $150. This
was just about half enough to make the
other needed repairs in the district.
"The Sears hill was put in good shape,
and one or two other places remedied,
but with about f loU more we could have
repaired the Kennedy hill, the clay hill
in front of Shermau Young's and the
hill at Carter's. The poll tax turned
in about $225.
"If it hadn t been for the special tax,
the road up the East Side grade, with
all the heavy hauling that has been
done this summer, would have been so
badly cut up that it would be wholly
impassable. The Tucker hill is not in
the shape to stand any of this heavy
hauling, and we people of the East Hide
would have been unable to come to
town, except we came afoot."
The East Side grade is now in splen
did shape. Some of the gravel has
...1 1 ...I r, 41.A .O , ..I, , t bw. . ,.
but Mr. Lage says this will be replaced
before the winter rains, and a few of the
worn places repaired. The traffic with
four-horse wood teams ovei this grade
is something immense. the heavy
loads are taken down the hill, and with
the brake dragging the hind wheels of
the wagon, the wear and tear on the
road is very severe. The fact that the
road has withstood the heavy naming
this summer shows the work of Super
visor Lage to have been well done.
There was only one mistake in the re
pairing of this road this spring, says Mr.
Lage, and that was the placing of fine
gravel on the road bed. This gravel
has all been ground to dust and did
nothing toward making the road any
It has been suggested that oil placed
on this grade would help to preserve the
good work and make the Ded imper
vious to the heavy winter rains.
Wedding Is Beset with Difficulties.
Alden Klingman and Mrs. Emma Bell
of Trout Lake are man and wife, but
when they set the wedding day it is
not likely they expected all the trouble
they encountered before the nuptial
knot was finally tied.
Rev. J. L. llershner was notified that
he would be needed to perform the cer
emony Wednesday noon at the home of
the bride's sister, Mrs. McRay, who re
sides on the Burt Van Horn place, in
the t ine Grove district, un arriving
there the minister found the groom had
gone to The Dalles after the license, but
on arriving at the clerk's office he found
that an Oregon certificate would not be
legal for a couple who were residents of
Klingman then sent word that he had
gone' to Goldendale. When it came
time for the wedding hour the groom
railed to show up. Alter waiting an
hour or more, it was figured out that
the trains to Goldendale have to connect
with the steamers, and thUB do not run
everyday. This made the young man
a whole day late for his wedding.
The bride, Mr. llershner says, was
the least disconcerted of any one over
the delay of proceedings. It was sug-
fested that Charles Castner or T. A.
lecker be substituted for tiie missing
groom, but owing to previous engage
ments, the young men are said to have
bashfully declined. The wedding din
ner had been prepared, and not to dis
appoint the guesls, those present sat
down and ate.
Mr. Klingman finally showed up
Thursday morning. The home of Rev.
Hershner waB visited, when another ob
stacle was encountered. The license
was from Klickitat county, Washington,
and this was Wasco county, Oregon.
The preacher did not think a knot tied
under these circumstances would hold,
so after consultation with Attorney John
Iceland Henderson and Judge l'rather,
it was decided that the wedding must
take place in the state of Washington.
So the preacher, the bride and the
groom retired to the ferry landing where
passage was taken for the Washington
shore. Climbing out of the skiff, the
contracting parties stood before the
preacher on the stony bank of the Co
lumbia, and repeating the customary
ceremony, Mr. Kingman and Mrs. Bell
were made man and wife.

Three Jurors Cured.

relates an experience he had while serv

Kuwardsville, county seat or Clebourne
county, Alabama. He says: "While
there I ate some fresh meat and some
souse meat and it gave roe cholera mor
bus in a very severe form. I was never
