HOOD RIVER, GLACIER, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1904. AID THE CHILDREN ON THANKSGIVING W. T. Gardner, superintendent of the Boys' mid Girls' society in Portland, ie appealing to the teachers and public Hi'lutol children of the state for Thanks giving donation. County School Super intendent Neff is mailing to each teach er in Wasco county copies of Mr. Gard ner's letter. Mr.Neff says: "It is hoped that there will be a most ?eiierous response in the way of money, resh and canned fruits, vegetables and other useful articles. "In order to facilitate as much as possible the work of collecting, etc., I desire to ask the teachers of Wasco county to take charge of the contribu tions in their respective districts, and to attend to the receiving, packing and for warding the same." Edgar C. Harrell, supervisor of the society, was in Hood River Thursday and arranged with t!ity Superintendent Wiley and his assistant, Mr. Crouse, whereby the school children will donBte fruits and other supplies for the Aid society. Mr. Harrell saya Superintend ent Wiley has entered heartily into the work, and the aid society is assured of a liberal donation from Hood Kiver. The management of the aid society feels very grateful for the very generous donations . this city and valley have made in for mer years. Donations from the Hood River schools will be taken charge of by the Transfer Co. and forwarded to Portland free of charge. For the information of those who are not acquainted with the work of this so ciety, it is well to state that the society is a charitable corporation incorporated under the laws of Oregon for the con trol and disposition of homeless, neg lected or ahused children of the state, and to receive and care for juvenile of fenders who have made their first miss step; to care for these children until suitable homes or employment are found for them, and to continue a sys tematic attention to their condition and treatment. The Hoys' and Girl's Aid society is supported in differ 'nt ways, by state and county aid, by interest of an en dowment fund and by charitable con tributions. The latter, however, have not been as good of late as they should be, the management being so much en gaged that a regular canvass among their friends has been neglected. But at Thanksgiving thev look for some ap preciat ion of their work, and to this end it has has been the custom in many localities for some vears past, for the school children of the public schools to contribute canned goods ot any kind, provisions, fruit and vegetables, and by these donations the children at the re ceiving home in Portland are provided with these necessaries and luxuries dur ing the winter montha.tlmt were it not for this generosity, they would have to forego. The railroads and steamboat lines running into Portland have gener ously consented to dead head all pack ages consigned to the Boys' and Girls' Aid society at Portland, Oregon. These packages should be delivered as as freight and plainly marked with the name ot the society. During the past vear thev have re ceived and cared for 412 children. These children are sent by commitment from all the counties in the state, tnose coun ties contributing during the past year were Baker, Benton, Clatsop, Clacka' nms. Columbia. Douglas, Harney, Job6' nhine. Lane. Linn. Marion, Morrow, Multnomah. Sherman. Umatilla, Union, Wasco. Washington and Yamhill. The average number of children on hand at the receiving home per day during the entire vear was 38. It is the effort of the society to place the children com mitted to them out in approved families as speedily as possible, and atter Deing so placed a naid agent is on the road during the entire year visiting these children to see that they are accorded proper treatment bv their custodians This small army of children if placed in nn nrnhnn nssvliim wou d be a great eX' pense to the people of the state, and be ing so placed would not have as good a chance in lite as being placed oui in normal family home. The manner in which this society cares for juvenile of fenders is bv an outdoor system of pa role, and after leing committed to them by the courts, they are allowed to go home on parole it their parents win w minratu with the management, and re port to the superintendent weekly bring ing a letter from their school teacher and also from their parents, and it may seem strange but at the present time out of the large number of delinquents cared for during the past year, there orp hut seven such in the receiving home t he rest of the children there being of llm ilmiemlent class. Cases of all description come to the notice ot the society, and in numerous cases run-away boys have been cared lor and returned to their Homes tnrougn this rliRiinel. It is more than ever hoped that this year the Thanksgiving donations will De exceedingly large, as with the popula tion of our state the number of depend ents are correspondingly growing. Fur ther, it must lie understood that the Boys' and Girls' Aid society of Oregon is positively the only charitable organi zation in the state of Oregon that re- , ceives children from all parts of the' state. feathering Peanuts in Missouri Henry T. Williams writes the follow ing letter to Clarence Gilbert from Ozark, Ark.: All nature here is in a state of supreme happiness, because we have just gathered our crop of peanuts and sweet potatoes. You cannot conceive of the general happiness on the farm over a crop ol peanuts. When we Degiu the crows sit on the fences and tree tops waiting for a chance to slip in. The skvis plentifully supplied with aerial visitors. Then the turkeys are hiding in the weeds waiting to come out and pick up all that are loose; and the elm kens, cows, horses ana small enn dren are all waiting for their chance, Peanuts are richer than corn and cost no more to raise, and the tops are better hav than timothy, lhis last week w gathered our crop of sweet potatoes (50 btiehels. "Somehow farming here has great attractions. Just as 1 came nere trom the fair at St. Louis, the berry crop was in great demand; then came the peaches. We gathered 4,000 crates of them. We had a small army of warb lers all come for a feast, and I do not believe any of them ate less than peach every ten minutes, and there were 35 workers ;bnt they ate the ripest ones, too soft to ship. Sometimes we had 25 bushels a day of peaches left over, too ripe to ship. But peach hap piness was nothing compared to peanut ecstasy. You should have seen the visitors, who neglected calling on us for six months previous, but who suddenly recollected we raised peanuts and were worth keeping up acquaintance witn Thev each left alter their visit with small sack of peanuts. I thought when we were done with the peaches tl appetites of our boys for fruit would be satis-fied. but the crop of apples began to loosen them up then it was difficult to gnsge their appetites. I asked the smallest of our boys how many apples it took to run him a day. He said not less than eight. Then I asked the larg est boy what his measure was, and he earn six Deiore dinner ana as many after. "I concluded after such investigation there must be something in Arkansas pples worth eating, if they kept the boys that busy. "I believe I can say that the Hood River apple is the best looking and tops the market in prices, but when it comes to eating, I do not believe any Hood River boy can beat the boys here or on the sweetness of the apple. "You gave a graphic picture of the busy, prosperous town of Hood River with its new stores and ornamental business places." Wasco County Official Returns.

DIPHTHERIA CASES ALL MILD IN FORM The public schools of Hood River were closed Monday morning for a week be cause of several cases of diphtheria among the pupils. The families iu whose nooies mere is aipnuiena nave an ueeu placedin quarantine, and every effort is being made to stamp out the disease. 1 lie physicians state that the cases are all mild In form, and that the pa tients have responded nicely to the use of anti-toxin. A majority of the child ren have already recovered. Six cases were reported Monday among the fam ilies of Dick Nealeigh, O. B. Evinger and Perry McCrory. it is thought the disease was spread from the school on the hill. After con sulting with the physicians, the health board thought best to close the schools for the week, and to have the entertain ment scheduled for Monday night postponed.

"Speaking about big potatoes,"said H. E. Bloucher, "I think I have some of the largest yet. Without irrigation grew six potatoes that weighed 18 pounds. Two of these weighed pounds. The potatoes were of the Late nose variety, une ol the potatoes was 12 inches long and another 13 inches. Mr. Bloucher will bring the monster tubers to the Glacier office to exhibit with the large collection of other fruit and vegetable monstrosities. t In driving out through the Hood River fruit district one is much struck with the small acreage of the valley. There is almost as much bottom land tributary to lone as is embraced in Hood River's famous orchards.
