everyday work. While the fund will
probably be increased in various wavs, it

from a Saturday sale maintained by 3
girkTliey are divided into three groups,
each of which in turn will hake pies and
cakes and provide other eatables suit
able for a Sunday dinner. Their goods
will be on sale Saturday afternoons in
some prominent place on Oak street.
The best way to help the needy is
to help them to help themselves.
If you would like to help and
encourage the school children, patron
ize their market. Other plans will soon
be laid whereby the bovs will assist in
the work and still other plans whereby
the pupils from every grade will axsist
m raising money for the school needs in
the other grades.
The Hood River school must build to
the 12th grade and this permanent
fund will be a great financial help in
defraying expenses during the growing

urday at OowelPs store. The good
things were very soon disposed of and

Size Should be First Consideration.
Mosier, Or., Oct. 21. To the Executive
board of the Hood River Fair associa
tion. Gentlemen: Referring to a pro
test handed to your secretary during
the fair protesting against the award of
your committee for "Best box of Spite
enbergs," I wish to add a few remarks.
The aim und intent of your exhibition
is to make a commercial display, both
in display and packing, as your premi
um list shows. Now tiie supreme test
of a commercial box of apples is its
money value in the markets, and rules
governing awards should be such as
would pick out the box of highest mon
ey value. If your rules fail to do bo,
it is manifest that the rules are wrongly
Men who have personal knowledge of
Spitzenberg market conditions will bear
me out in the assertion that a box of
54 size would command $1.50 a box
above 112 eize, providing both were
good color and pack size being the first
Your awarding committee say that
they were instructed to score equal
points for pack, color and uniformity of
size in the box, but nothing for extra
size of one box as compared with anoth
er box. If your rules for judging single
box entries had allowed 50 points for
size, 30 points for color and 20 points
for pack they would have very nearly
selected the best commercial box of
almost all varieties of apples, and saved
your association and its committee from
the glaring error which they put on
record when they passed judgment on
the phenomenonally perfect box of
Spitzenbergs which was brought from
Mosier by the undersigned.

Bill Nye's Advice.
Hill Nye, the humorist, in reply to
a Wisconsin youth who asked if Kansas
was a good state in which to start
another drug Btore, said:
"If you mean by the drug business
the sale of sure-enough drugs I would
not go to Kansas. If it is the great
burning desire of your heart to go into a
town of 2,000 people and open the thir
teenth drug store in order that you may
stand behind a tall, black walnut pre
scription case day in and day out, with
a graduate certificate in one hand and a
Babcock fire extingnisher in the other,
filling orders for w hiskey made of stump
water and the juice of future punish
ment, you will do well to go to" Kansas.
It is a temperance state and no saloons
are allowed there. You can run a
dummy drug store there with two dozen
dreary old glass bottles on the shelves,
punctured by the hand of time and the
Kaas fly of the period, and with a pro
hibitory law at your back, and a tall red
barrel in the back room filled with a
mixture that will btyn great holes in
nature's beart, and make the cemetery
blossom as a rose, and in a few years
you can sell enough of this poisonous
preparation to fill your flabby pockets
with wealth 3t
Effects or Prohibition.
The following letter from Hon. Geo.
B. Pendleton of Temple, Texas, ex-member
of congress, will interest communi
ties contemplating prohibition :
I have been asked to make a state
ment regarding the success of prohibi
tion in Bell county. I was an anti-prohibitionist
in the campaign before the
election, but as a law abiding man,
after prohibition went into efiect, I
wished to see all the laws enforced and
hoped it might be a success.
So far as I know the laws are now be
ing obeyed and enforced, but under the
law as it stands organizations known as
clubs can be created anywhere. While
I am not a memlier of any of these clubs,
I understand that there are seven or
more in the town of Temple, and also at
Benton and other places in Bell county.
There are said to be more than 2,000
members of the clubs in Temple.
These clubs belong to private individ
uals and can be legally kept open on
Sunday and are kept open on Sundays
at all times. I understand also that it
is no crime for minors to enter a club,
so we have Sunday opening and minors
visiting places where liquors are sold
and all done legally, while under the
license system Sunday opening or sell
ing or giving to minors was illegal.
I am not on the streets at night and
am kept busy in my office during the
day most of the time, but understand
from others that there is more drunken
ness in Temple than there was under
the license system. I have also heard it
stated that many parties who took an
occasional drink at a saloon are now
members of a club so that they can get
their drinks regularly, ordering by the
quantity from other places, and keeping
it at home. The efiect of this is mani
fest, because persons who drink but
little when they must go after it would
necessarily drink more when it is con
stantly in their presence.
I do not lielieve that it has improved
the morals of the people ; on the contra
ry, 1 believe there ha9 been a distinct
decadence in morals. I do not believe
in considering the question of money or
profit until after the moral questions arc
disposed of, but inasmuch as it has not
improved the morals of the people, on
the contrary has injured them, I think
we have a right to take the pecuniary
phase into consideration, and from my
standpoint I may say that the loss of
revenue from the traffic has been a loss
of many thousand dollars to our county,
which must necessarily be made up by
taxation upon the faimers and business
men of the community.

Enlisted to Preserve the Union.
At the regular meeting Saturday of
Canby post, G. A. K.. the comrades
gave their experience when first under
fire and what induced them to enlist.
Not more than one-half of those present
were heard from before time for adjourn
ment arrived, but so far each one stated
that he felt it his duty to enlist and that
the only issue in the minds of every pat
riotic man in those trying times was the
preservation of the Union.
The membership of Canby post is
made up principally of men whose an
cestors fought in the Revolution, and it
seemed the rght thing for them to do,
when the Union was assailed, to give
their services to help preserve what
their forefathers fought for and estal)
lished. The question of freeing the slaves was
never thought of by the great majority
of young men who went into the civil
war on the Union side, but when Presi
dent Lincoln threatened the secession
ists with the liberation of the slaves if
hostilities did notcease by acertaindate,
the Union armies cheerfully accepted
the situation and each soldier has ever
since felt proud to think he took a hand
in helping to free the slaves.
The comrades will continue giving
their experience at next meeting.

Sears St Porter shipped seven boxes

where they will be exhibited before the

The apples went to C. H. Rodgers,

whom Glacier readers will remember

see the Hood Kiver fruit fair last week,

A Judicious Inquiry.
A well known traveling man who
visits the drug trade says be has often
beard druggists inquire of customers
who asked for a cough medicine,
whether it was wanted for a child or an
adult, and if for a child they almost
invariably recommend Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. The reason for this is
that they know there is nodangerfrora
it and that it always cures. There is
not tne least danger In giving It, and
for coughs, cold and croup it is unsur
passed. For sale at Williams' Phar
macy. Cox Gets School House Contract.
S. II. Cox of Hood River has been
awarded the contract to build a $1,645
school house for the people of Steven
son. The building will be 28x38 feet,
two story, and two rooms, with a rock
foundation. It will have large halls,
and built in such a way that it will be
an easy matter to add to it when neces
sary. "We are glad to bear that Mr. Cox
securedjthe contract", says the Stevenson
Pioneer, "for we know that nothing will
be slighted, and it will be a structure
that school district No. 3 will be proud
of. There will be a clearing beo next
The building is to be completed by
January 1. '
Some Seasonable Advice.
It may be a piece of superfluous ad
vice to urge people at this season of the
year to lay in a supply of Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy. It is almost
sure to be needed before winter is over,
ana mucn more prompt and satisfac
tory results are obtained when taken as
soon as a cold is contracted and before
it has become settled in the system,
which can only be done by keeping the
remedy at hand. This remedy is so
widely known and so altogether good
that no one should hesitate about buy
ing it in preference to any other. It is
for sale at Williams' Pharmacy.
