On Tuesday evening the 22d, a few of tbe many friend of t'hrlH Dcthmnn and wife surprised them on the ocea lion of the 2011) anniversary of their marriage. Tbe following persons were among the party : William Ehrck and family, Hans I,age and family, Henry Lage and wife, William Hoohy and wile Mr. Kolls and wife, Mr. Dragsott, Mr. MoUill and sister, and lien htge. Coffee and light refreshments, were served and Jolly good time was hud, and not until one o'clock ln the morn ing did the crowd take leave of their hoot and hostess. Chris Is 20 years older than when he was married, yet the only evidence of this fact Is the sprinkling of grey in his whiskers. II Is said that a man Is as old as lie feels, and u woman as old as site looks. As the crowd took their departure it was with the wish that Mr. and Mrs. Deth man should be spared to enjoy many anniversaries of this kind, and thai firosnerlty and happiness be their lot n lire. Nearly all the lumber for the Odd Fellows" building is on tbe ground, nd the work of building has legun and will be crowded. Kd Hawks is superintending the work of building. The completion of this hall will meet a long-felt public demand at Odd I, and we are glad to note tbe beginning of such an enterprise. We note with regret the illness of the family of K. L. Massey of Willow Flat, and hope soon to hear of their recovery. Thanksgiving, with all It means with reference to reunion of loved ones at home, with good things to eat and good cheer, has come and gone. It is a good thing to rest from labor now nd then, pausing to look backward over tbe past, and with unfaltering trust look forward toward the future, laden with Its duties and responsibil ities, and pledge ourselves to more faithful effort along the linos of honor able manhood. Tbe difficulties over come In the past should furnish Inspiration for better future work. A very creditable school entertain ment waa given last Wednesday night at the school house, V. V. Willis and Mlsa Blanche Wilsou having trained the pupils for It. It was along Thanks giving lines. Tbe only thing to mar the peace of the large crowd was some disturbance in the crowu uy a lew Itersons large enough to be men. 'omition decency suggests order at any public gathering and especially at a school entertainment, where the audience Is largely made up of parents, whose children are on the program, and who are easily emburraxsed by such conduct. To young bloods whose brains are in their heels, it is little use to Ulk, but as a newagntherer, the publlo will be Informed concerning such matters. However, we trust it will not be necessary to speak of such a matter again. "A hint to tbe wise," etc. Harry Kemp's blacksmith shop was moved from a prominent Odeil corner few days ago to give place to a more tiretentlous uulluing llieuuu fellows' lall. George W. Lafferty came here only a few years ago from LaGrande and pur chased 30 acres of land one-half mile west of Odell. Today, with painstuk ing effort, he baa one of the nicest little plaoes in the country. This year, from 20 acres of -the place, with ouly four acres of bearing orchard, a small patch of strawberries and some hay, lie has had revenue of f HOO. He now has only one-half acre to clear and the whole 30 awes will he cultivated and immensely productive. He recently dug a straight ditch through bis place nd filled the old creek bed, thereby reclaiming an acre of fine meadow lund. Mr. Lad'crty is thorough in his farm work, and realises Hint land Is too valuable lo have any waste places, especially in small tracts. We are ever ready to note the work of any euter- firlsing rancher, and prophesy that Mr. nllorty will get well paid for hi work III case he ever wants to sell, or, If not, III revenue while he keeps his place. The young people of Odell, about 40 In number, took peacahle possession of the home of Messrs. II. Morton and Anderson last Saturday evening. A fine supper wus furnished. Dancing was (he order of the evening, A right merry time was had, and the young people ore grateful to Messrs. Morton and Anderson for a very pleasant even ing, and for a home where they always find a warm welcome. I am sending a cony of the Glacier to my brother, J. M. Shelley of Kugene, and lust week lie wrote me like this: "We read your Odell notes will) pleas ure and enjoy ynur boom Items." Of course we forgive this brother for such a statement, tor we realize it Is difficult for him, living us he does in a slow, plodding, nuiHH-covered country like the Willamette valley, to understand the marked conlrust between the lund of Wehfools and that of Hood Hiver valley not only the best advertised valley In the Northwest, but from a revenue-producing basis, the very tesl on record. And why? It Is tilled up wan a clans or wideawake, enterprising people, who, by reuson of rural daily mall and telephone service, are abso lutely up-to-date, and acquainting themselves Willi improved methods In ranching, they they produce the best possible results; while the products of the valley nnd their wav into the nest markets of the world. This solves the problem of land values here, and re moves every semblance or boom from the Odoll notes, The clearing of land and the plant ing of thousands of apple trees in the country, together with the erection of the substantial tirlck blocks in Hood Klver this year, with others, that are now forcing their way to completion through the storms of winter, are sil ent, eloquent witnesses, attesting the growth and development of this most wonderful valley. While I have pleas ant and tender recollections ol my childhood's home in tbe valley of the Willamette, we are creatures of circum stance during our childhood days, but during the years of maturity we ran choose for ourselves, so give mo Hood River valley. Mr. Coburn, a relative of Mr. Copplc, who recently came here from the Fast, and has been touring the Willamette valley with a view of buying a home, has returned to Hood Itiver, and wili no doubt purchase a home here. We understand that negotiations are now pending for a ranch In the valley.

The little sawmill in tbe south end of our valley is running at its full capacity. This is a good thing and what is needed. It gets the timber off of the land, and where now grows the fir and pine will grow something more profitable to the owner. Hut this mill is a detriment to those who own land along the creek below the mill, as this mill runs all the sawdust that it cuts into the creek, and is filling up the channel and spreading over the valley. This little creek has always been the pride of our valley, and we don't like to see the sawdust running into it. Furthermore, it is against the law. Our little valley is visited with sick ness and doctors. Of this we are sorry. F. L. Massey had five in his family who were sick at the same time.

How much we have to be thankful for; seeing that j we have had a bountiful harvest;; throughout our land we have had I enough and a little to spare; our hearts have swelled up w hen we contributed to the wants of other nations who have been stricken with famine.
