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
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'
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
"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."

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.
"Trial by Jury" a Pleasing Production.
'Trial by Jury" at the opera house
on last Friday night met with a
crowded house. The public school
library fund was handsomely increased
by the receipts of the evening.
Professor Aylsworth, conductor of the
operetta, sustained well his part as
judge, and displayed a musical talent
of ability. Those parts rendered by the
local talent were well received, ana
many of the amateur performers could
play with credit in a professional role.

the largest yet. Without irrigation
grew six potatoes that weighed 18
pounds. Two of these weighed
