For mine time there have been ruin
ore of tbe organization of a lodge of tbe
I. O. O. F. at Odell. There are quite a
number or member or the Order In
thin vicinity who dexlre a home nearer
than tbelr present lodge, to wit Hood
River. If those in lerexted will pall at
the Little White Store. Mrs. Shelley
will take the matter up, and If agree
able to them, will submit a proposition
to lease them the entire upper story of
the ball building at Odell, giving
long lease, say Ave years, on such terms
as would piobably prove mutually
satisfactory. -The ball would be 24x48
reel on tue ouisiae, wun ante-rooms
already cut off. Tbe ball could be
speedily arranged comfortably for
lodge meetings.
L. D. Boyed last week closed deal
on 40 acres of his home place for a
satisfactory cash consideration. This
leaves him with only 40 acres of bis
original 160 acres, and be says be bos
refused an $8,0K) oiler for this 40, upon
which his building stand. Mr. Jioyed
bas perhaps tbe finest appointed home
In East Hood River valley. His bouse
Is modern and well furnished, and
with an abundance of water he bas the
finest lawn in the neighborhood. Mr.
Boyed bat set tbe pace for beautifying
borne. Have look at It, then go
and do likewise.
Mr. Egbert of The Dalles was here
last week looking tbe valley over for a
market for nay. Jiut tlie valley being
supplied with a better quality than lie
could furnish, I think be returned
without making a sale. Mr. Egbert
runs a feed yard at Tbe Dalles.
The writer has 131 acres of very deslr
' able land for sale at an extremely low
figure. It Is cut up Into three tracts
or 60, 65 and 28 acres, all abutting upon
tbe Mount Hood road, splendidly
" Improved and with plenty of natural
water. This Is positively the bent bar
gain In Hood River valley. For Infor
mation call at tbe Little White store.
Cbas. Halgbt, an old timer In Oregon
from The Dalles, had business here
last week. He sold Jobu Lawless a
pair of wild bones. I have known Mr.
might more than 30 years, having
traded horses with him when I was
boy, John Lawless is a horse tamer
of no mean ability and If you will turn
your eyes toward tbe jingling bells of
John's wood hauling team this week.
you will see these bronchos; but not so
wild as mey were last Sunday when
lie nrsi Daiterea mera up.
The voters of Odell school district, at
meeting last Friday, voted to estab
lish the ninth grade. This Is as It
should be. If this move bad been
made few weeks sooner, a number of
pupils would have been saved the ex
pense of attending school In town.
Jiut better late than not at all. At
this meeting a proposition .was din
cussed concerning the supplying of
spring water to in aistrict as wen as
other parties who were willing to pay
for water for domestic use. '1 his prop
osition meets witb my hearty approv
al, and I stand ready to aid such an
enterprise In every way possible. The
creek water, which the school children
must now use. Is not pure, and the
health of tbe children should be pro
tected regardless of tbe expense. It Is
estimated that $300 would pipe pure
spring water Into the school house and
from there It could be easily distributed
to a few parties who would gladly pay
tbe price of city water. Once estab
lished It would soon become a paying
proposition financially, besides proving
a monument to tbe names of the par
. ties founding the enterprise. By all
means crowd this matter to a finish,
and furnish the children with abso
lutely pure water.
On Saturday, the 15th Inst., the
Order of Lions will give basket social
at tbelr ball here. The social gather
ings of the Order are becoming a popu
lar feature with the "400" of Odell.
There Is talent both of a musical and
literary character among tbe lodge
members, and a fine program will be
rendered. The exercises will be public
and everybody Is Invited. Come along.
At a surprise party last week, Mr.
and Mrs. I rank A. Massee entertained
a large number of tbelr friends, Includ
ing people from Odell and Dukes Val
ley. Mr. and Mrs. Massee without
atiectatlou proved a charming host and
hostess. Their many friends are
Indeoted to them for a very, pleasant
evening, and wish them success and
C. R. Bone, who frequently swaps
lies with tbe Little White store man,
baa some very excellent schemes In his
bead concerning the future of our fur
famed valley of Hood River, which to
my mind are praotloal. If he will only
consent to my outlining some of them
for the publio good, I will gladly do so.
So after I press the button and turn
the x-ray on him. If they call him
Colonel Sellers It will not be my fault.
Truly, I believe there will be a won
derful tale unfolded for our valley In
me near ruture. Ho set your bouse lu
order and be ready for it.

oegau last Aionaay.
Charles Pflughaupt and family re
turned last Thursday from the hop
neius or juarion county, lie reports a
short season's pick, but with his large
family of pickers be did very well. The
party he picked for bad a force of 100
pickers and dried 1)0,000 pounds of
bops. At 30 cents, tbe present prloe,
it would amount to $27,000. The
expense of placing hops on the market
will not exoeed seven cents, so allow
ing one-fourth off this would net the
grower $21,000. Not a had income
with bops at tbe present price. The
growers are on velvet. But take the
years together for the pioneer hop
grower of the Willamette valley, and
I imagine they aie not much to the
good now. The business is hazardous
and the crop perishable. Better grow
the famous Hood Hiver apple.
B. T. Young Informs me that our old
neighbor, C. A. Wyman, is In the Tort
land sanitarium with inflammatory
rneumaiism. ins mentis nere are
sorry to learn of this and wish for him
a speedy recovery. Like most people
who leave Hood River, Mr. Wyman
now regrets having sold out here.
We are glad to note the substantial
character of the valuable brick build
ing almost completed In town. Every
citizen of our valley should feel Justly
proud of the enterprise of the owners
of these structures. This kind of im
provement is an unanswerable argu
ment in favor of the future growth aud
prosperity of the town, and adds value
to the land in the country. Columns
could be written concerning the
Improvements of 1904, in town and
country, and we await the result of the
Glacier's report of the bouse to bouse
canvass recently made. Tbe fruit fair,
together with the press association,
which will soon be with us, means
much to Hood River, and I SHggest
that we resolve ourselves into a com
mittee of one, and each of us extend
an Invitation to some distant friend to
visit us on that occasion.

Two voting ladies, one of them from
Dukes Valley and the other from across
tho river, took a trip to Odell lust Fri
day with a team and buggy. They got
to Odell all right. They wanted to see
a couple of young men that were work
ing in the field close by. They did not
want to hollow at them and they did
not want to get out and go to them; so
in order to attract their attention they
cramped the buggy so short that the
wheel caught under the box, and then
t hey hollowed good and loud. Of course
the young gentlemen came running
down to see what was the trouble. It
took the boys a long time to extricate
that refractory wheel. They finally got
things fixed up all rigid, and the girls
went home happy ; but we would ad
vise them to try some other scheme
next time, because it is a terrible strain
on the buggy to cramp it so.
me young man that came to our
literary last Saturday evening must
think we are rather a tough set up here,
for when he came he tied his horse with
a chain, took his Jines out and wrapped
them in his buggy robe ; took his seat
uuaiuou aim wnip and brought them all
in the school house, and deposited them
by his seat and kept a close watch on
them during the evening. You don't
need to go to all that trouble, Lloyd,
This is not Belmont. When you "me
to Duke's Valley just tie your bone
with any old thing; leave your things
in your buggy; get in and enjoy your
self, for we are white, if we do live in
the backwoods.

I would suggest that some of the

raising of bops. They might put in one

cents a pound. The demand from for

from Australia wanting to buy a ship
