A BIG INCREASE
First 10 December Days 40 Per Cent
Better Than Year ago for Cram.
"By comparing receipts of the first
10 days this month with the same period
one year ago, I find my business shows
an increaso of nlnmst-W per rent," re
marked Frank Cram, the nieivl.iinl
always up to date, a? lie replied to the
Glacier man's inquiry "How's trade
"0, yes, business is good these days.
While the paBt year might be said to
have been a dull year for Hood Kiyer,
the mills having been closed a greater
part of the time, my business shows a
"It will be impossible for me to get
moved into the rooms next door, now
occupied by William's pharmacy, until
sometime in March, as Mr. Williams
will hardly get out before the latter
part of February, and then there will
be a large amount of fixtures to put up,
and painting to be done which will re
quire a month or more.
"I'll be well settled, though, in time
for the big spring trade. While there
will of course be more competition as
the city grows, I believe next year will
be better than ever for the trade, and '
that when the sawmills are running
to their full capacity there will bo many
good years to come. Hood River is all
right, don't yon forget it. Why, If I
had a million dollars I would invest the
whole of it here." And the newspaper
man wished Mr. Cram had the million
"When we enlarge," weut on Mr.
Cram, I shall put all the men's furnish
ings in the other room, and in this I
shall add a ladies' cloak department,
window curtains, portieres, and other
branches we don't extensirely go into
The Unitarian Bazaar held in the Dal
las building Friday and Saturday of last
week was a gratifying success to the
members of the Woman's Alliance, un
der whose auspices the affair was con
ducted. A large sum of money was
turned into the treasury of the society
as the result of the two day's bazaar,
which will be used to defray church ex
penses. The dining room conducted by the
bazaar management was very liberally
patronized. The word went forth after
the first meal that the service was par
excellence, and after that the tables
were crowded both noon and evenings.
The women gave their patrons every
attention, and served dainty viands for
25 cents that could be secured nowhere
else except on special occasions at your
The display of fancy Work, dolls, can
dies, etc., at the various booths attracted
many Christmas shoppers. The em
broidery work and burnt wood and
leather designs were exquisitely beauti
ful. A fortune teller for ten cents led
the visitors through the mazes of the
future, and a "rogue's gallery" proved
mrticularly amusing. There were col
eeted a large number of early day pict
ures of prominent business men of the
city. When their identity was made
known, the old time likenesses would
provoke many a hearty laugh.
Every member of the Alliance de
serves credit for the complete success of
the undertaking. The wouien all
worked like beavers. The fancy work
booth was in charge of Mrs. Hand ; the
Klondyke bin, where for a small sum
you were permitted to explore the saw
dust in search of your fortune, which
resulted in some small article coming to
the surface, was conducted by Mrs. A.
The Kogues' gallery w as in charge of
Mrs. F.. L. Smith and Mrs. Edward N.
Blythe, while Mrs. Paller was the for
tune teller. Mrs. Stewart's Sunday
school class conducted the "Sunshine '
booth. Mrs. Koberg was cashier, and
no one escaped without putting up the
price of the toll. Mrs. Entrican and
Mrs. Smith looked after the preparing
of the coffee and other good things in
the kitchen, and Mrs. Mears, Mre.Kath
bun, Mrs. Blythe, Mrs. NeSmith, Mrs
Morton, Mrs. Cunning, Mrs. Chandler
and other members of the Alliance as
sisted in serving at the tables.
A Portland visitor, lionjauiin I. Cohen,
who sat at the table Saturday noon, was
overheard to remark that the bright,
intelligent faces of the lovely women
busy with the management of the ba
zaar was especially pleasing to him.
The receipts of the two days netted
the women over 200.

Low Water; So Logs; Closed Mills.
Owing to the low stage of water the
mills of the Oregon Lumber company
and the Menominee Lumber company
have been forced to close down, as with
the low stage of water it is impossible
to get logs to the mills. The Oregon
Lumber company has about 2,000,000
feet -of logs in the boom at the mouth
of Hood river, but it is impossible to
get the logs over the sand bar to the
The big mill in the city hero has been
closed for some time, and a week ago
Saturday the mill of the Oregon Lum
ber company at Viento was closed.
This mill is expected to begin operations
by the middle of Februaiy. The mill
has been disposing of its cut of timber
at such a rapid rate that little over
half a million feet of lumber lies in the
yard at Viento.
The Menominee mill, four miles below
Hood River, was forced ro close down
because of the inability to drive logs
dowu the White Salmon with the pres
ent stage of water. The mill has been
closed since September 30. At that
time there were 4,000,000 feet ot luinour
on hand, but it has been sold off rapid
ly until now there is but half that
amount left in the yardH.
