Notwithstanding the many slips be
tween Lipton and the cup, the announce

era prepared by Manager Sliepard of
the Hood River Applegrowers' union,
- and published in the Glacier, has been
copied by many of the papers in the
Northwest interested in horticulture.
The Frank ton school district, two
ml let west of this city, finds it necessary
to employ five teachers. We don't
believe there is another rural district in
the whole state of Oregon that employs
five teachers. Three miles south is the
Barrett school with three teachers and
demand for the fourth.

Northwest, who was at St. Louis dur
ing the time of the Hood River fruit
fair, takes hit reports of the fair from
the Ncwberg Qrapic and the Hood
River Qlacier. Mr. Williamson Includes
in hia article the list of exhibitors and
the names of the premium winners.
The business men of Hood River sub
scribed over $200 toward the Trout Lake
road last week. Now let's see if the
Commercial club can't induce some one
to establish a steam ferry route between
Underwood and Hood River, also with
White Salmon. There is business north
of the Columbia which the Hood River
merchants should go after.
The genial Charles Mesorve, well
known in Oregon newspaper circles, has
disposed of the Jacksonville Bentinel
to Lee W. Henry. Editor. Meterve
made the Hentinel, the brightest little
paper in the state, and while we believe
Mr. Henry to be equal to the task, he
must hustle to keep np the standard tut
by Mr, Meeerve. We wish him success.
Charles Meserve, it if understood, will
edit a daily to be launched at Grants
The fire and water committee of the
city council is figuring on the purchase
of a chemical engine for the city of Hood
River. In cities like Portland and Se
attle niue-tenths of the fires are said to
be extinguished by chemical engines.
They are quickly tnken to the fires, and
when the blase is yet inside the build
ing the fumes of the chemicals thrown
upon them soon smother the fire with a
great deal less damage to furniture and
goods than a stream of water. As the
town of Hood River has no water for
fire protection, and little immediate
prospects that it soon will have, a chem
ical engine with a volunteer department
would make us feel safer, even if the
insurance rates were not made less.
FOR POSTOf HCE
The present quarters of the Hood

adjoining Bragg's store on the south,

Hood River Casts a big Vote.
Prohibition was the Issue that brought
out the voters in Hood River. No other
topic was discussed. Everyone, or
nearly everyone, had his mind made up
that he would vote for Roosevelt, but it
was tho question of lieer or no beer that
agitated the minds of the great majority
of the voters.
The vote in tho Kust precinct showed
an increase of 130 votes over that for
the state election in June. Hundreds
of voters were sworn in in both the
East and West precincts.
Considerable excitement was aroused
early in the morning bv the saloon
workers cornering nil the registration
blanks, and their notury pub ic refusing
to swear In a voter when it was known
he would vote for prohibition. Bradley,
the job printer, pulled his party out of
the trouble by securing a registration
blank and striking off a Is me number
on his press.

one or two strangers imbibed too freely
of free liquor, there were no disturb

were very orderly.

Ghost Dance at Jenkins Home.
Hood River can rightfully boast of
her luscious strawberries and wonder
ful rosy cheeked apples, but these are
not all the valley's resources. The
extreme fertility of the beautiful little

ghosts in the city limits. How tlicv

lhe barking of tie nun and chorus

themselves in a circle on the floor," re
marked the doctor. "After much ghostly
pantomime and a succession of guttural
sounds, we were given to understand
that their masks would be removed if
we would guess their names. Well,
this was a poser, for all were dressed
alike so we could not tell which from

rest, breathed an aubiblewish for a 'bite

W. II. Eccles of the Oregon Lumber

capital in the construction of a steam
railroad up Hood River valley, says in

finds it necessary to havo a railroad to
bring the logs from the mountains to

the Columbia there is no place to hold
them after they reach here. When the
