W. J. Baker, chairman of the com
mittee on location of the fair pavilion,

the Davidson Fruit Co. Mr. Baker,
also a member of the transportation
committee, suggested that the railroad
company be conferred with and arrange
ments made to have the passenger

days. 1 lie matter of arranging for this
was left to Mr. Baker.
It was decided to make Friday Dalles
day, and Saturday Portland day. The
Portland Commercial club is expected
to attend the fair in a body, and pos
sibly an excursion special will be
arranged for out of Portland on Satur

Smith Returns From Grants Pass.
E. L. Smith returned Monday night
from Grants Pats, where as president
of the Oregon Development league, he
attended the Development league meet
ing in that city last week. Mr. Smith
says it was a Hplendid gathering of rep
resentative citizens of Southern Oregon.
Everyone seemed imbued with the
Judge Cake, Tom Richardson and
W. E. Comau accompanied Mr. Smith
uo representatives of the Portland Com
mercial club. At Roseburg, the South
ern Pacific took on a special car for the
delegates, and there were delegations
from Jacksonville, Medford and Ash
land, headed by the mayors of the
Returning, Mr. Smith stopped off at
Salem to visit the Wallace orchard in
Polk county. Mr. Wallace has just
gathered 1(13 tons of Bartlett pears from
his orchard. Mr. Smith secured sam
ples of eight varieties of pears from this
orchard, which lie will put on exhibi
tion at the fruit fair for those who are
interested in setting out pear orchards
at Hood River.
At Grants Pass, Mr. Smith visited
the 35-acre orchard of Eisinan Bros.
This orchard has 10,000 boxes of apples
this year. The proprietors recently
sold 7,000 boxes of Spitzenbergs to Page
& Son for $1.50 a box. Mr. Smith says
this orchard, a few years ago, was badly
affected with anthracnose or dead rot,
and had it not been for Commissioner
Newell and Professor Cordley of the
Oregon Agricultural college, the orchard
would have been a total loss by this
time. These gentlemen made a study
of the dead rot, and found that it could
be destroyed with a fall spray contain
ing double the usual quantity of
Masonic Lodge At Trout Lake
A Masonic lodge was constituted at
Trout Lake last Wednesday night with
31 charter members. Judge Miller,
deputy Grand Master for the state of
Washington was present as installing
otiicer. Among the other visiting ma
sons were Messrs. Brooks, VanVactor,
Lytle, Cooley, and Timblin from Gol
dendale, and Mr. Carpenter from Cen
terville. Two other gentlemen accom
panied Judge Miller from Vancouver.
It was the intention to send a dele
gation from Hood Itiver, but at the
last moment all who intended to make
the trip found it impossible to leave
The following are the officers intalled
bv the Trout J-ake Masons:
"William Coate, master; O.J. Smith,
genior warden; Edward Duncan, junior
warden; B. C. Hamilton, secretary;
George Kreps, treasurer; Frank Coate,
senior deacon ;A1 Bertchi.jnnior deacon.
Chris Guler has been deputized senior
warden in the absence of O J. Smith.
William Staddleman, Chris Guler and
John Dethman were in Hood River
Monday and reported the organization
of the lodge to the Glacier. From what
Mr. Staddleman says, his friend Guler,
the first man made a Mason at Trout
Lake, rode the goat m rong end to, but
Guler's ftory didn't corroborate the

Mr. Dethman cava Birch meuntain
behind Trout Lake is art re for 20 miles.
An attempt was made to stop the spread
of the flames, but no headway could be
gained against the fire demon.
The dust coming id was terrible. Ac
cording ta Mr. Staddleman, he took the
Iront seat on the stage and persuaded
Dethman to git behind where he would
not get so much dust, but when the
wagon arrived at White Salmon, Deth

Chris Guler accompanied the crowd
to the city with a shotgun determined to
protect their wealth from the highway
men if he has to kill two or three.
SHIP CAR APPLES
A car of mixed varieties of early fall
apples was shipped Tuesday tiy the
Hood River Applegrowers' union to
markets in Southern California. The
Portland market is reported very poor
The car of wrapping papers for apples
arrived last Saturday. Manager Shep
ard sent out notices Friday to the apple
men, notifying them of the arrival of
the car of paper and requesting thorn
to come early to avoid the rush in get
ting their paper from the car. Mr.
Shepard says Monday morning there
was a big rush of farmers to town and
over half the car was unloaded that
The carload of paper represented
15,000 pounds of wrapping, lining and
laying paper. By buying the paper in
bulk the growers saved about one cent
a box, sufficient to cover the cost of
hauling their apples to the warehouse
W. J. Baker received word Mondav
that a car of pears shipped by him to
Chicago will net him about 70 cents a
box. The fruit sold in Chicago from
$1.25 to $1.70 in a market where other
pears, well packed, were bringing $2.25.
The pears from Mr. Baker's place were
packed in a hurry by green hands, and
although they arrived in first class con
dition in Chicago, the slack pack cut
down the returns.
G. R. Castner. member of the board
of directors of the Hood River Apple
growers' union, states that the recent
sale of apples secured by Page & son
brought $2.10 a box for the four-tier
Spitzenbergs, and $1.75 for the four-tier
The $2.10 fiirure Dermits but 20 rter
cent to be 128s; those in excess of this
number going at $1. 7ft. The light col
ored Spitz under 112 went for $1.60
All Pewtowns, 4:4-tier and less, went
tor fl,25. The total sale included 30
cars of Spitzenbergs and Newtowns.
Two cars of Baldwins went for $1, and
two cars of Kings at the same figure.
Mr. Castner says many inquiries are
coming in for apples from all parts of
the United States.- New Orleans is
willing to pay a good price for Ben
Davis. New York and Philadelphia
aiso want applet.
Jasper Wickhani Home From Iowa.
Jasper Wick ham returned Mondav
morning from Iowa, where he went to
Bettle up atlairs connected with the
estate of his deceased father. Mr.
Wickham had not been east for 20 years.
lie says the greatest changes noticed
was in the neoule manv of them had
grown old since lie lived among them.
mere are better buildings on the
farms, but the same corn, oats and hogs
are raised as or old. air. Wickham
thought Iowa looked very good to him.
Me thinks the limners there have more
leisure time than they do at Hood
While East Mr. Wickham had the
good fortune to attend several harvest
gatherings and pioneer reunions, where
he had the onnortnnitv to meet, manv
ot his old time mends, all of whom
were glad to see him and to learn of the
Returning, Mr. Wickham spent Sun
day in the city of Spokane. He was
there in 1883, when that town was but
a village. Now it is a bustling city of
40,000 population. The city is well
built with substantial business blocks
and handsome dwellings.
Mr. Wickham says there have been
great changes in Cedar Rapids, Iowa,
in the last lew years. Many large man
ufacturing plants have been established
there, and the town has grown from
8,000 population to 30,000. While there
Mr. Wickham went through the largest
oatmeal factory in the world.
Visitor Seen Prosperity Here.
F. M. Rinehart of Condon spent Sat
urday and Sunday in Hood River, re
turning Monday morning. Mr. Rine
hart had come down to make a visit to
his nephew, O. A. Rinehart, but found
him ahseut in Idaho. Mr. Rinehart
while here stopped at the home of Mr.
Ewers, his nephew's neighbor on the
hill. Sunday he took a drive to the up
per part of the valley.
Mr. Rinehart thinks Hood River a
fine country. The splendid homes of
the farmers and the many thrifty apple
orchards gave him the impression that
this is a prosperous community. -
Mr. Rinehart has a homestead about
six miles west of Condon in the heart of
the wheat country. Land there is held
at J 15 to $20 an acre, and this year pro
duced an average wheat yield of 20
bushels to the acre. The railroad now
building from Arlington to Condon will
be the making of Southern Gilliam
county. It cost as much as the wheat
was worth to haul it 40 miles to Arling
ton, and when the road is completed the
farmers will be getting just twice the
price they are now getting, Bays Mr.
Entitled To All The Credit We Get.
Mr. and Mrs. W. N. Acres of South
Bend, Pacific county, Wash., visited
last week in Hood Kiver with their
former neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. S. A.
Knapp. Mrs. Acres says she had
always heard so much about Hood
River that she was glad to have seen
the country and town. What she saw
here surprised her, and she enthusias
tically remarked that Hood -River was
well entitled to all the good things said
about the country and more, too.
Mr. Acres has a farm at Mosier. He
is the county surveyor at South Bend.
Mr. Knapp, who came to Hood River
from Pacific county, says that is a
great country, with valuable resources
in lumbering, fisheries, oyster beds,
dairying, etc., but as a place of resi
dence it doeBn't begin to compare with
Hood River. The country is off the
main line of the railroads, and the
transportation accommodations are
therefore very poor. The rainfall there
is greatly in excess of this country.
Dance Music Was Splendid.
There have been many compliments
on the splendid dance music furnished
last week bv Charles R. McCally the
violinist. The work of Miss Ball, the
accompanieet, is also highly spoken of.
Mu-icofthis high Btandard by players
in the home town will lie highly sought
after during the dancing season about
Arrangements have already been
made to have Mr. McCally furnish
music for a dance on Friday
night of -the fruit fair. Mr. Mc
Cally .proposes to secure several other
pieces that night and will give Hood
River some first class orchestra music.
The waltz music of Professor McCal
ly's own composition was warmly en
coied the evening of the dance.
WANT HOOD RIVER
FRUIT AT ST. LOUIS
Charles K. Warrens, member of the
Lewis and Clark fair commission, writes
10 tne uiacier that it is time the Hood
River farmers began to make prepara
tion to set aside their finest fruit for (lis
play at the St. Louis exposition, also
for the Lewis and Clark fair.
"If any grower, or several growers to
gether, can select at least half a dozen
boxes of extra fancy apples of any one
variety, the state board would lie very
glad to learn of it," says Mr. Warrens.
"They would make all arrangements
for shipping to St. Louis and pay all
expenses, but there must be not less
than 500 apples of anv one variety. I
wouia line w see the llooa Kiver grow
ers send a full display of every variety
that docs well in their vicinity."
Baler's Pears Score At St. Louis.
W. J. Baker received the following
very complimentary acknowledgement
from Chas. V.Galloway, on the arrival of
some of lug fine Bartlett pears at St.
"I beg to acknowledge the receipt
from you on September 8, of one box
of splendid Bartlett pears, in good con
dition, this iruit was entered and
scored yesterday, immediately after its
arrival, thus losing no points on account
Mr. Baker states that these pears
were given gratis to the Oregon exhibit
ai i. JjOuis.
WOULD PAY HERE
"After reading the references that
have been made in the Glacier the last
week or two that a creamery is needed
in Hood River, I took the pains to notice
the many fields of clover throughout the
valley, as 1 drove out this morning, and
I can't help thinking these clover fields
after the hay has been cut should be
used for pasturing dairy cows, remarked
Charles E. Warren to a Glacier man
"With the price of clover hay $14 a
ton, of course it would hardly nav to
feed it to cows, but with a surplus of
nay in me valley ,tlie price will naturally
come down, ami then the dairy business
snouui pay wen nere.
"Fine creamery butter is manufacture
ed at Corvallis and Hillsboro and all
through the Willamette valley where
the farmers have gone extensively into
the dairy business. The farmers there
have found the dairy business profitable
and there is every reason to believe it
would be a paying proposition here.
"If some enterprising firm were to put
in a dairy plant at Hood River and
establish cream routs over the vallev.
the farmers could afford to keep a half
dozen cows and buy separators. After
the cream is separated the skim milk
could be fed to pigs, and thus encourage
another byproduct of the fruit farms."
Just The Ladder For Orchards.
A big shipment of the Zaun fruit lad
ders arrived at Wait's feed store last
week, and every farmer who has seen
the ladder is taking one home with him.
They are the proper thing for fruit men,
that's no mistake. They can be used as
an ordinary step ladder and in a mo
ment can be extended to twice their
length. Made of light material.they are
easy to handle. Iron bolts and rods
make them firm and stout, and it is a
wonder how the apple men have got
along so long without them.
Wait sells them at 13.75 apiece. But
if two are taken he will knock off 50
cents, or if a farmer buys 1000 apple
boxes from him, he makes the fruit
grower a present of a ladder.
Hunters' Horses Take French Leave.
D. McDonald and Robert Leasure left
last week for Cloud Cap Inn to hunt for
deer. The first night out, tho horses
were staked near camp, but they were
frightened at something, presumably a
deer, and breaking looBe they left for
home, Mr. McDonald's coining all the
way back to Hood River and walking
into the barn.
The hunters got no game. They were
able to see plenty of it in the woods, but
everything under foot was so drv that
the deer made themselves scarce at the
approach of the gunners.
Returning home, other horeeg were
secured at the Mount Hood store, and
the journey continued uninterrupted.
A Pleasant Evening With Miss Byrd.
A pleasant evening was spent at the
home of Miss Lulu Byrd, Saturday, Sep
tember 24. Many of her friends gathered
to celebrate her 17th birthday. The
evening was spent with music and
games. A delicious lunch of ice cream
and cake was served. At a late hour

returns. Those present were Lulu and
