to know if the railroad will grant reduc
ed excursion rates for the Ibxxl River
fruit fair. The railroad has done this
heretofore, and it is presumed will again
accommodate the people of Oregon with
excursion rates. Mr. Wuest says a large
numl)er of Portland people have signified
their intention of visiting this city dur
ing the fruit fair. "I read yonr paper
with much interest everyweek," contin
ues Mr. Wuest, "and am glad to note
that prosperity is general in the valley.
There ia certainly every indication of
continued growth and rapid develop
ment." Intense excitement prevailed on Oak
street Friday morning for a short time,
as a prominent young man of the city
was noticed crossing the street, bearing
in his arms the recumbent form of a
lady, apparently in a fainting condition
and clinging in a close embrace. Var
ious surmises were advanced as a pos
sible solution of the mystery, some
suggesting case of heart failure, with
a consequent romoval to the undertak
ing parlors across the way, while others
inclined to the opinion that the young
lady had merely fainted away, thus
giving the young man an opportunity
to show his gallantry by carrying her
to a place of rest. However, on a
nearer approach the supposed lady
assumed the proportions of thn wax
figure, from one of the dry goods stores,
which was being conveyed to the mas
sage artist for repairs.

MISS OLINGER KEEPS
WELL IN THE LEAD
The voting contest for the world's fair
tour is scheduled to close Saturday
night at 9 o'clock. Tho tickets were
practically all disposed of by the firHtof
this week, although by Tuesday night
less than i5,000 had been voted. This
means that (iO,ooo remain iu tho hands
of the votei'B.
Tho contest for the last three weeks
has narrowed to three contestants, Miss
Olingor, Miss Cramer and Miss Rich
ardson. Miss Olinger began early in
the contest to lead tho list, and the last
vote shows her well in the lead. There
are sullicient ballots in the hands ol
voters as to iimko impossible any fore
cast of the result.
Each of the three contestants well
deserves the honor of a freo trip to the
world's fair at St. Louis, and it's really
t"0 bad all three can't go.
The contest has been a success from
the start. While it means a three anil
one-half per cent expense on all sales,
the incrt'luiiits declare they have done
well hy the sale oi the coupons. One
implement dealer Bays farmers came in
and paid up noten two mid three months
before they were due in order to secure
the coupons. One man in town paid
ft a in advance on Ins grocery bill.
The big rush of votes is not expected
before Saturday, when the suspense
will lie over with the announcement of
tho vote at 0 o'clock, Saturday night.

URGES THE WEARY
TOILERS TO GO WEST
Rev. Arthur dishing Dill, D. D.,
until recently pastor of the F'irst Con
gregational church, Niagara Falls, ac
companied by Mrs. Dill, spent last Sat
urday in Hood Kiver. Itov. Dr. Dili is
making a tour of the Pacific coast, ami
while visiting the bounding West is
entertaining tho people of his homo
town with descriptions of the country
published in the Niagara newspapers.
Rev. Dr. Dill went for a drive through
the valley Saturday morning. He was
enchanted by the beauties of tho mag
nificent scenery to be viewed here, and
while he had always considered New
York the banner apple state, he declared
he never saw fruit to equal the apples
that hang in great clusters on the trees
in the Hood River orchards. In his
next letter ho proposes to explain tho
question asked in New York why it
was that during the holidays of 1003,
Oregon Yellow Newtown Pippins sold
in Loudon for ftl.OS a bushel, netting
the producer $2.25 a box, while the best
and finest apples raised in othor regions
sold only for $2 and $2.25.
In a recent letter to the Cataract
Journal of Niagara F'alls, Rev. Mr. Dill,
in urging people to leave tho crowded
East for the West says:
"Niagara is Buro to grow. Your com
ing will not depopulate it. The power
city beside the rushing cataract will
o'erllow her bauks with great industries
and factory lifo till the rush of city life
more and more wears and tears . the
nerves to painful reaction. Oh, that
some word of mine might win from the
unhealthy lifo of a city tenement,
where pale-faced children and pulseless
wives with sickly faces greet at night
the still paler disheartened toiler in the
hand-to-mouth struggle for bread and
rent, to come out to this land of sun
shine, of freo lund, of good natured
abundance, of health, of happiness', a
wealth more golden than the yellow
metal so abumlantly scattered through
out the state, to au enjoyment of life
which seems to bo the possession of
every one out here.
"Oregon is the largest of the Pacific
states, with only 500,000 population
upon its (11,4511,200 acres, covering its
!W,0:t0 square miles. Were it so thickly
populated as Khodo Island it could care
for its people better than New England,
though this would give to Oregon a
population of 40,000,000.
"Hunshiuo and soil explain all. Rich,
fertile, mellow, wondroualy productive
soil underneath in abundance for all;
while above, overhead, around about
you everywhere you wade through it,
breathing and drinking it in, wondnus
sunshine every day and all day long.
Life out here, ho to speak, is in the open
outside of doors. Few are hurried,
none have impressed me as worried. It
has been a very hot summer. The old
timers speak of it as "a scorcher," the
hottest they have known, and yet
horses and their colts choose out of
preference to stand in the sun or lie
down in it when shade trees are not ten
feet away. This is true, though the
thermometer might register 120 degrees.
"The air is pure and 'dry. There is
oxygen in it. We have no dew. Under
a board upon the ground you will find
it dry. From June to September it
does not rain cast of the Cascade range,
which runs through the state from
north to south about 100 to 150 miles
from tho Pacific coast. Aa Oregon is
300 miles wide and 220 miles from north
to south you readily sot the extent tof
the rainless region. Yet that very
region without rain will produce two
and three crops of alfalfa."
The writer then proceeds to tell of the
large wheat yields of Eastern Oregon,
and says he is on his way to Ilood
River, the poinological paradise, at tho
base of Mount Hood, of whose fruits,
and beauties he will write later.
