try,Mr.Hilltrom moulded a piece of the
. fire clay for hia stove and used it for
aeven years, a pretty good test of its
: value. This clay would make a fine
mmlitv of tile drain, ottorv and brick.
'There are apparently several grades
. that could be put to use in that line,
. and it covers a large area of ground. Mr.
llillstrom will set out a new orchard of
six acres next spring, and has two acres
of young orchard now. His old orchard
ia not composed of the beat varieties,
and. will e abauUoiutd.

off nine acres.
J. K. Steele ia ana of the progressive
Mount Hood far uters, and in ftdilitian to
taking oare of IH acK's of Ui own. land,
mostly in hay, has rented the Paul Au

He has four acres of orchard and two

probably get hia ferottor eut from
France to take partef his. faraa. Among
the interesting experiments being mailt)
by Mr. Duma tea patcii el strawber

frost kills the vines. He brought over
Ave pbjKtairoca France, but only one
lived. From this small beginning he
now hat a patch of about 20 luet square,
and mutt year will have a commercial
patch of tliwe berries. He has enough
this year to supply his taMotwo or three
times a week all summer. The berries
are ol a fine quality, and will be very
profitable for market kmg after- other
berries are gone. He is endeavoring to
get raspberriee from France that will
bear continuously, and brought over
tome plants last year, but they did not
survire Vbo journey. His pumpkins,
ra4std.ftotn.aeed (sum France, ate the
finest we have seen this year. Belgian
hares and rabbits are raised for the
table and his large rabbit shed whs also

turned them out, but expects them Lack
the first deep snow. They became quite
tuine, and allowed mo desire to leave
last winter-white-the mow covered the
ground. The bed of French snails Is
one of the newt biturecitjng products of
the Duma ranch. A bed about 8x15
foet is closed in with wire nutting, and
little rock piles and board shelter are
placed at intervaJain thepen. Lettuce,
lfeage and otlwr green etnff is planted
for feed, and the snails work around in
and out of the rocks and boards and
multiply and grow fat. The place is
kept damp during the dry season,
and that is abeut the enly care neces
sary. The mature snails are about two
inches in diameter, and are a French
delicacy .beiiiK served annular to oysters.
Mr. Dumas assured the writer that they
were worth about 75 cents a dozen in
the Portland market.
I. U. Laffurty ia working the lluhnke

The building was erected by Con
tractor Georite T. Prather in the turn
mer of 1882, for Frank dJackus, who
opened the first drug store In the town
of Hood River. Backus later sold bis
drugs to Dr. C. F. Kewcoaib.
Judge Prather, in 1885, bought the
store and buiWuur from Mr. Backus
and enlarged on the stock, keeping for
many years a gtneral store. The judge
was a good democrat in those days aad
held the position of postmaster for four
years during the firet Cleveland admin
istration. It was iu this building that the Hood
Uiver Glacier was conceived and brought
to a realty.. Tlie judge artanfed Willi

ington hand press, some type, and put

ground now occupied by Jackson's store.
The building still stands, it being toe

Mr. Prather went out of the-store
business some time in the early UO's,
and in 1001 he sold the property to Dr.
Brosius for $11000. Prather bought Uie
lot, 10050. in 1885, for $800, which was
considered a good price at the time. It

Hood River, Or., Aug. 5. Editor Wil
lapa Harbor Pilot: Hood River is not
exactly in your local news district, but
we claim so much notoriety for our
scenic beauty and also for our famous
fruits that we feel we must be known
everywhere, and to be known is to have
friends, these friends may read a lew
lines from here with interest.
Picturesque lb od River I A home fit
for the gods! You that have teen its
beauties know my ni'dnm in not at
tempting a description of Columbia
river scenery. Our sceniu attractions
have Jilwuy been re toga iaed but our
resources have come into prominence
within the last eight years. Even Bix
years ago friends iu Portland emphat
ically wlviftd u not to go to Hood
River unless we could live on scenery,
but we hud fallen victims to her charms
and thought we would try our luck,add
nig a few of the suhelaDtials to the
scenery diet. Since that time the town
bus trebled in population, real estate
values have doubled and trebled in the
valley, while in town, business property
that could have been bought lor u pit
tance six years ago is now held at $50
per trout loot It Is conceded to be a
fact that Hood River ia mere widely
known throughout the world than any
other place in Oregon. No doubt there
are olhur tuwns with, greater resources
than we have that are never heard of
outside of the state in which tbey are
located. One of the obvious reasons for
this is the great value of fancy fruit as
an advertising medium.
We have been much interested in the
political newt of Pacific county. We
are spared the nervous strain of politics
here. We take the republican, ticket
straight, it you please. A democrat
with us ia rare, a populist or a socialist
an imported novelty. If Pacific county
can spare a few voters of a "more differ
ent" political porauasiou than the re
publican, we would like to see them
move here to give our political life a lit
tle of the spice of variety, yon know.
Whilom South Benders residing here
are all doing nicely. Bert Kent claimed
a popular Hood River girl for his bride
recently. Charles Foatcr is also nicely
settled in his own home. Both young
men are members of the Hood River
baud. Mr. Gorking'i family it nicely
located on their fruit: farm .'near town.
Mr. Sonle, formerly of llwaco, is one of
our busiest contractors.
We read of South Bend's many im
provements with pleasure, and, to con
fess the truth, get very homesick "in
t he good old stun mer time" (or the
ocean breezee and the blue, blue kiei of
Pacific county. Yours respectfully,
, Mas. 8. A. Knah1.
Praises Action Hood River Apple Uulon
The Hood River fruit growers believe
there is something in the value of a
name, for according to the Glacier, the
Hood River Apple Growers union re
cently refused an offer of $2.25 for a
choice lot of applet because tha buyer
insisted that bis own nauw go on the
box labels. The Hood River growers
have spent thousands of dollars adver
tising their fruit and they do not pro
pose to ullow outside dealers to use their
name. And thev are wise, for if thev
allowed dealers to place their names on
uood uiver boxes it would not tie long
until unscrupulous dealer would be
telling all kinds of applea an-Vet the
name at Hoed Kiver, ead It would soon
lose the prestigo it now has in the mar
kets of tlte country, end Hood River ap
plet would sell no better tban Willam
ette valley or Illinois apples. The action
of the Hood River growers is a pointer
to the Rugue River fruit men, fin- this
valley has a reputation for fine fruit
tpiite equal to that of the famous North
ern Orogon valley. The growers of this
valloy lutve not as yet a uniform label
ing for their boxes, and it is a common
occurrence for outside dealers to buy up
Kogtte River fruit and ship it tinder their
own name and to add to their shipment
inferior fruit from ether sections which
they palm off as Rogue River grown.
Unless the Rogue River growers are as
vigilant as are the Hood River growers
in guarding the name and reputation of
their fruit, the tine reputation that
Rogue River fruit by its superior qual
ity has made in the markets oi the
world will be a thing of the past, and
they will get no belter prions than re
ceived for (ruit grown iu the common
sections of the country. Jacksonville
