HOOD RIVER, QLACIEE, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1904.
Ilimry Sevirkrupp has 80 acres adioin
"Eggermoiit" on the East Side, and
una b hub young orcnara started, com
posed mostly of Spitzenbergs and New
towns. He has also several acres in
bearing orchard, in all 111 acres set out
to apples. A fine residence and farm
buildings make this one. of the best
nonies in that section.
F. Egbert owns 120 acres and has
named the place "Kggermont." It is
in charge of J. H. Eggert, and the
Avery brothers, who are making exten
sive improvements. Two modern resi
dences have just been completed, being
fitted up with all modern conveniences
of the city home, Hnd a large amount of
clearing is being done. Water from the
Bone ditch just reached the farm this
year, and the effects of irrigation will
be very noticeable another season.
P. A. Cox has 20 acres in the same
neighborhood, 7 acres being set to ap
ples and the balance in hay.
C. Dethman is one of the successful
East Side farmers, and he now has 40
acres in orchard. His residence and
farm buildings are of a commodious and
substantial character, the green lawns,
shade trees and well kept grounds mak
ing it an ideal home. About six acres
of his orchard are among the oldest in
that section, and comprise many vari
eties, but the young trees are nearly all
of the two liest varieties.
Dr. Watt's 30 acres in tearing orch
ard is one of the valuable commercial
orchards in the valley. This year the
. effect of irrigation is very noticeable,
increasing the size of the fruit, and .con
sequently the money value of the crop.
It is now leased to Porter & Sears, and
under their competent management
improvement is noticed in the entire
orchard. This year's crop is estimated
at between 7,000 and 10,00 boxes.
Near the forks of the road leading to
the Odell district is the 100-acre farm
of Sim Copple. His bearing orchard
comprises eight acres, and he has also
a young 10-acre orchard. . A little over
half of the farm is under cultivation, 20
acres being in hay. His son Claude
also has 18 acres in orchard adjoining.
Across the road to the north of Dr.
Watt's orchard is the famous Ueulah
Land farm, formerly the property of
K. L. Smith, but the major portion of
which belongs to Oscar anderbilt,
formerly a railroad man of Niles, Mich
igan. Mr. Smith, ten years ago, bought
100 acres of this land from Chris Deth
man, paying $1,000 for the same. Mr.
Smith set 30 acres of the land to apple
trees, and Mr. Dethman was to take
care of the orchard for four years and
receive half the orchard for his work.
This month, 10,000 boxes of apples will
be gathered from tins Beulah Land
orchard. Mr. Smith bought 80 acres
from Marion Loy, and eight years ago
gold 53 acres to E. Eggert for $15 an
acre. In the spring of the present year,
Mr. Smith sold 115 acres of the Beulah
Land farm to Oscar Vanderhilt for
14,375. This sale included the resi
dence on the farm, but not the apple
house Mr. Smith built last fall, and
aliout 20 acres of young orchard. Pro
fessor Lake of the Oregon Agricultural
college, who visited Beulah Land last
fall, says this apple house surpasses any
thing of its kind in Oregon. The apple
house was built at a cost of $1,100. The
fnist proof ware room is 24x50, with a
second story the Bame size for use as a
liox factory. Thete is an annex 10x1(1.
The house has a capacity of 5,000 boxes
When Mr. Vanderbilt purchased the
Beulah Land farm this spring, he
immediately expended $3,000 in im-
firoveinents to the house and barns. He
ias now a residence supplied with all
the conveniences of a city home, with a
water supply of purest spring water
piped to all parts of the house. His
barn affords ample room for storing
tons of hay, while the ground floor ie
filled with comfortable stalls for his
thoroughbred cattle. Mr. Vanderbilt's
115 acres include 40 acres of trees, 30
acres of which are in bearing. A. family
orchard supplies every known fruit
g'own in Oregon. Among his small
fruits are found: currants, one-half
acre; six varieties of grapes, one-half
acre; blackberries, one-half acre; dew
berries, one-fourth acre. Hix acres of
the farm are planted to alfalfa and four
to clover. Mr. Vanderbilt will plant
10 acres more orchard this fall, includ
ing one acre of cherries. His orchards
are well cultivated, but Mr. Vanderbilt
does not irrigate his trees. Early in
the summer, Mr. Vanderbilt found sale
for nearly $500 worth of small fruits
that formerly little attention was paid
to, and in addition to this he says there
was sufficient fruit that went to waste
to supply a good-sized hotel.
L. A. Herman has a fine place situat
ed along Hood Kiver, a half mile on the
road going west from the East Bide road,
and about four miles from town. He
has put up a nice residence and barn,
has nine acres in apples, and is taking
the best of care of them. Several nice
springs on the place help out the supply
of water. This has the making of an

place, with about seven cres cleared on

Aug. l'aasch iB one of the progressive
farmers of the east side, and although
he disposed of a couple of tracts of fine
land to the Van Horn interests, lie has
still about 100 acres left. Only six acres
are in bearing trees, but the new orch
ard comprises 30 acres. Twenty acres
are also in hay. He expects to take
2500 boxes of apples off his six acres
this year. '
M. L. Thorn and E. H. Thorn have
20 acres each, which they are improving
as fast as possible and retting out orch
ard. They have also about 8 acres in
M. M. Hill has made a remarkable
showing for one of the new farmers in
the valley. He has now 30 acres of
apples on his 50-acre farm, and all of his
land will be under cultivation next year.
His bearing orchard of ten acres will
produce about 1000 boxes this year.
His young two-year-old orchard of 20
acres will probably rank higher in
points than any in the valley of the
same age. The trees are very uniform,
have made a maximum growth, are
vigorous and healthy, ul certainly
show great prospects.
C. II. Spioat has all but five acres
planted to orchard on bis 50-acre farm,
and in a few vears will be getting from
15,000 to 20,000 boxes of apples annu-

L rver of local conditions and going
after results in a scientific manner. His
old orchard consisted of a large variety
of apples, on account of getting trees
from an unscrupulous nurseryman that
were not true to name, and the last few
years Mr. Mason has been busy grubbing
out Or top-grafting poor varieties. He
believes in the "wine-glass" shape of
pruning his trees, binding the limbs
firmly together with wire tree supports,
thus opening up the inside of the tree
to the sunshine while protecting the
limbs by the supports from breaking.

Koine Odell Farms.
The first farm that one meets at the
top of Tucker's hill after winding up the
sleep erade. is the fine home of L. l'log.
The residence, barns, apple house and
apple orchard are on the level bench
along the main road, and both Mount
Adams and Mount Hood are in plain
view. There are 15 acres in bearing.and
and 10 acres of young trees. Mr. l'log
came here two years ago from Iowa, and
and while he made some mistakes the
first year, has developed into a progress
ive fruit raiser.
P. D. Jochimsen owns 80 acres south
of the plog farm, and farms the good old
way. He does not like fruit raising, but
has 30 acreB in clover, 15 in wheat hay,
and 20 acres summer fallow. He keeps
10 cows and makes butter and his fine
buildings and general thriftiness of the
place shows that he is making a good
Kosco Miller is clearing up most of his
40 acres, and has a small orchard set
out, but will plant 700 more apple trees
in the spring. He has also 14 acres in
C. M. Busey has a fine young orchard
of eight acres, ami the trees look as well
as any in the valley. They are growing
without irrigation, and are making a
Near the Little White Store is the
William Ehrck homestead of 100 acres,
there are 36 acres in orchard, ten of
which are in bearing, and the farm is
now producing a fine income. The crop
this year will be about 2000 boxes of
apples. In addition to orchard there are
50 acres in hay, wheat and oats. About
75 bushels of wheat and 100 bushels of
oats were threshed for seed, the balance
tieing baled for hay. Water from the
Bone ditch just reached this section
late this vear, and next year can be used
to double" the crop of hay and grain.
L. A. E. Clark is a new comer in the
Odell district, having purchased 15 acres
opposite the Wood homestead. He has
a new house built, and is planting five
acres to apples and about the same to
clover. The balance of the place will
probablv be cleared this winter.
John "Kroeger has built a fine home
on his 150 acre farm, and has 8 acres in
orchard, 15 in hay and 7 in garden truck
and corn. He is steadily improving the
place and increasing the apple and hay
acreage. Mrs. Kroeger also has 80acres
which she homesteaded before ber mar
riage. . . . , .
O. E. Bowerman is improving his
farm of 30 acres, and now has nearly
seven acres in apples and ten acres in
Uoing south from the Bowerman
place about a mile through the timber
the traveler conies to the fine 100-acre
farm of Philipp Kollas. Mr. Kollas is a
thrifty Herman farmer, learning the
business thoroughly in the old country,
and he has a genuine German vineyard
and garden in the 20 acres cleared in the
middle of his farm. Sheltered from the
winds, his orchard of eight acres, his
grapes and garden are making a fine
growth. A large spring in" the upper
part of his farm supplies him with six
inches of free water, which he has piped
down to the house. Hydrants are locat
ed at various parts of his garden and he
nas all tne advantages ot a city water
works plant. Flowers are blooming in
profusion, and vegetables grow to enor
mous size. Out of his grapes he makes
fine wine and also has many to sell.
Mr. Kollas raises his own nursery
stock and is sure that he has the right
varieties when he sets out an orchard.
J. L. Tousey is improving his place of
80 acres west of the Kollas place, doing
a large amount of clearing this year,
and has 7 acres in apples.
Valentine Nehrbauer is living alone
on his place of 60 acres adjoining the
Tousey farm, but has made no improve
ments yet to speak of. However he in
tends to build a new house and clear a
few acres this winter.
Back on the main road is the James
English place of 40 acres. About 12
acres are under the plow, mostly in
apples. It is being steadily improved.
Q. W. Lafferty has a fine place of 30
acres, all but a few acres being cleared
and in a well diversified number of
F. E. Runcorn is farming 30 acres,
and but a small portion of it is unim
proved. Five acres are in bearing orch
ard, five acres in young trees, 15 in hay
and two in berries.
J. 'II. Eggert has leased the Charles
Ehrck ranch of 120 acres in the Odell
district for ten years, and has 40 aifres
under cultivation. Mr. Eggert said to
the Glacier man : ' "I moved on this
place in November, 1902, and leased it
tor ten years. Since then I have set
out 300 apple trees Spitzenberg and
Newtowns, and have seeded ten acres
to clover and timothy. This year I cut
27 tons of hay from six acres of clover.
I expect to devote the most of my time
to raising hay and cows. This is an
ideal farm for dairying, hogs and poul
try, and diversified farming will pay
well. Since the advent of the Bone
ditch Odell district can now offer good
inducements for a creamery in a year
or two. As I am only a small farmer
yet, I will say no more ; but I am here
to stay, and will try to make this ranch
win out along the lines I have men
tioned." M. D. Odell is clearing up 40 acres
along the main road leading to Dukes
Valley, and has five acres in orchard
and nearly two in strawberries. From
his strawbeirics this year he cleared
$175 practically $100 an acre. Mr.
Odell claims to be the first white man
born in Hood River, his birthplace
being on the old homestead of his father,
near the Little White Store, now owned
by Robert Livingstone.
Between the East and West Forks.
The district between the East and
West Forks, in the Mount Hood settle
ment, shows signs of extensive improve
ments this year. Considerable clearing
is being done, and the land is as good as
anywhere in the valley.
11. 11. Tomlinson is improving his 40
acres, having built a new house and
cleared a large patch of ground which
will be planted to apples, strawberries
and hay. His old homo is now owned
by Orville Knox, who purchased the
40 acres on which the old building
stands, and has the cleared land mostly
A. O. Johnson, C. A. Buddy and O.
M. Bailey are all clearing and getting
the lantl ready for apples and hay.
Alliert McKamey has about 20 acres
cleared on his eighty, and this includes
a small tearing orchard. Free water
makes the place especially valuable,
and reduces the cost of maturing his
Robert McKamey has about 20 acres
cleared, mostly in hay.
W. 11. Rodenhiser has 25 acres in hay
on his quarter section, and is building a
new barn to take better care of his crop.
Mrs. A. Ries is one of the pioneer set
tlers between the forks, and while only
a small portion of her place has been
cleared, she has a fine home place, and
has all the comforts of home life. Site
raises some of the finest berries in the
upper valley on a small patcli of ground,
ana has a nice family orchard. Her
sons, Frank, John and Henry have
places near by, and are making improve
ments every year.
The David Wishart homestead, now
occupied by Mrs. Wishart, has about 40
acres in cultivation, and half of it is
now owned by her son, James.
Back a mile and a half from the main
road leading to the Falls, are the Burk
hart and Mclsaacs places. Adjoining
the Burkhart place is the lava beds,
one of the imposing bits of scenery in
the valley. These places are being
made garden spots in the middle of
heavy timber, and a large amount of
clearing is being done. Near these
farms is also 80 acres belonging to 1). E.
Miller, who cleared 15 acres and set to
strawberries, - but owing to the long
distance from market, has set out the
clearing to apples.
Mount Hood Valley.
By Robert Leasure.
Mount Hood is located 10 miles sonth
of Hood Kiver and runs to the base of
Mount Hood, a distance of 10 miles, by
about five miles in width with an eleva
tion of 1500 feet. The soil is of a red
sandy loam, generally very rich, and all
kinds of vegetables are grown here, as
well as all kinds of fruit that are adapt
ed to the Hood Kiver country. Clover
and timothy bav grows very heavy, the
former turns off from four to five tons
of hay to the season at two cuttings,
making one of the test openings for
dairying in the Northwest, when the
valley is opened up a little more. The
country is well watered so it makes
irrigation cost practically nothing.
There is plenty of timber and consider
able lumbering going on all the time.
There are two sawmills in this valley,
two stores, one church, one blacksmith
shop, one public hall, and last but not
least, one of the best schools in Wasco
county outside of the city.
The assessable property in our dis
trict was over $100,000, for school pur
poses last year. We have two teachers
and will have a nine months school ttiis
year. Our climate is very mild in win
ter. It very seldom goes down below
zero. There are about 125 voters in
this valley, with room for at least three
times that number.

is closed for the present, but will start
about the first of the year. The logging
camps have started up for the season's
run. A new planing mill 48x100 is
being built, which will be driven by a
75 horsepower Atlas engine. Smith &
Watson Iron Works furnish d the fronts
for the two boilers. Tbe company is
building a crib 300 feet long, 12 feet
wide and 6 leet high, at the mouth of
Hood Kiver, to turn the logs during a
freshet towards the mill. The company
report business as good, both with its
fir and pine mills. The timber holdings
of the company now under control will
aggregate nearly a billion feet.
Davenport Bros.' Lumber Co., Hood
River, are cutting on an average about
50,000 feet per day with eleven men at
their Parkertown mill at the end of
their six-mile Hume, The logs w ill run
about five to the thousand and are
sound red fir, perfectly adapted for ties
and structural material. The logs are
turned on the carriage by two pcuvey
men, who certainly for celerity of move
ment can give the modern log turner

The logs are hauled out of a pond 700

are: President and manager, Frank
Davenport; vice president and assistant
manager, A.M. Kelsay; secretary, ('.

a good operating force. An order for
150,000 ties for the Short Line is now
being filled. The timber holdings con
sist of about two hundred million feet
of yellow, red and white fir, with a
sprinkling of hemlock, larch and w hite
pine. The timber lies at an elevation
of abput 2500 feet, and will run on an
average about 50,000 feet per ucre. The
ground is gently rolling, making an
excellent logging chance. The timber
holdings of tiie company embrace a ter
ritory which stretches from the Mount
Hood Forest Reserve to the Columbia
River. There is probably r00,000,000
feet of additional timber which will find
an outlet to market through the lands

Co. The timber is perfectly sound,
with little underbrush and can be
manufactured and sent to market by
the aid of flumes at a minimum cost.
