TELLS FRIENDS OF HOOD RIVER
CorrfMpondcnt Writes Interesting
Letter From Land of the Thistle
Knjoys .Mount Hood Notes.
The followinii interesting letter conies
to the Glacier from Scotland. The writ
er is known to many of the people of,
the Mount Hood district, and would
prefer to keep them guessing who he is
rut her than to sign his own name.
The Glacier seems to have given a
very favorable impression of the Hood
River country, and as the correspond
ent states after rending several copies of
the the paper many of his friends who
had about decided to einbark for Cana
da, are seriously considering coming
to Hood Kiver. Next to the bonnie
hills of old Scotland, it would be hard
to iind a land to suit them better, and
it is hoped Hood River will soon have
the home-seekers from Holytown among
the residents here.
P.urbank Cottage, Holytown, Scot
land, Hoc. 9. Kditor Glacier: I have
just spent a very pleasant hour in look
ing through some of your recent datod
copies of the Glacier. I got quite inter
ested in reading over various columns.
There is some very amusing and a great
deal of instructive information to be
had from them. They contain very
valuable hints to parties who are tak
ing up new claims. They get ideas
hoW to get the befit results out of the
lund,idcas that suit inexperienced par
ties mch as new settlers generally are.
These hints are given I believe from
hard tried experience.
The Glacier also contains itsfull share
of advertising the great advantage to
homeseekers in the great Northwest, es
pecially HootlRiver.whii h speaks well for
it;i. e, encourage home industry. It
must be a great comfort to the new set
tler to get all this free information the
Glacier contains; how to prune, pick,
pack and spray, and then where to find
a market where the best price is to be
obtained for the product All that in
information is worth a great many dol
lars to the new Settler.
Another part worthy of note va9 the
description of Mount Hood farms. All
very interesting reading not only to the
subscribers around the district where
the Glacier is printed, but to those who
are lucky enough to get a copy
in the outside world, for I
believe it is known in a great mnny
parts of the glolie. The description
given about such farms and the good
prospects of the owners makes the read
er wish and long to be one of the new
settlers. I have had the opinion of dif
l'erent parties who have had their minds
made up to try Canada for a new home.
They all agree that the Hood River re
gion must have great resources for th-e
making of comfortable homes, and be
iore ttartins! out will make further in
nuiry a-i to the advantages to be had in
Hooil Kiver district. Their attention
has been ditected there by no other in
lluence than the descriptions printed in
Tbe Glacier reporter must have en
joyed bis trip through the various fruit
firms. lie gives a very good account of
the doings of each aud all until he
reaches J. Gruff 's place, when fear
seemed to overtake him. Well I can't
say 1 ever did tee a cougar although 1
have travelled a bit and know what it is
to be wary of wild animals. I believe
he wns jiistilied in accepting the shelter
Mr. Gruff consented to give him for the
Mr. Pumas must be a very energetic
man, who, if one crop fails will have one
of another origin to fall back on, and al
though I could relish a good dish cooked
from one of his Ilelgian hares, I won't
say the same of the snails.
Another man who can't have much
spare time is Mr. dribble of tbe Mount
II Ml store. It must take considerable
time to explain to some of his fair lady
customers that bis goods are "all wool
and a yard wide," of superior quality to
those that can be purchased elsewhere
at tlie same price or by paying more,
lie nni"t take time to piease hie custom
ers, and a well pleased customer is the
best ami cheapest advertisement he can
send out. He als i has t he getting
rea ly and forwarding of the mail, and
is having his ranch put in order for
cultivation. I hope it is not iu his case
"all work and no play, makes Jack a
dull boy." I wish him every success
in his bu-im ss.

A LOAD OF HOOD RIVER ATPLES.
You have also one of the medical fra
ternity who tries his hand at farming,
Dr. M.F.Shaw. I am glad to see you
give hiin credit of keeping pace with
the best of ranchers, for farmers as a rule
are jealous and think no man can raise
crops unless born and brought up on
One more and I will finish my criti
cism on the ranchers, one of the old
est of your sctilers as he is described, P.
R. Cooper. If he is the oldest, I see he
also hns the largest orchard. He will
deserve ail the credit of being the owner
of such which could not be had without
persevering and plenty of hard work.
One thing, his place is supplied with
plenty of good water, a very needful
comodity for a fellow to strike who is
tret-king through the country ; and for
something to eat I think one would he
sure of a feed of apples with their jack
ets on, if not done up with a nice crisp
paste and plenty of sugar instead of salt.
The house, you soy, is pleasantly situ
ated with ample buildings. The sur
roundings described makes me think it
would be a very good place to call at to
spend the night if in the district and
placed in thesnmc condition as your
rejiortcr wab-at ' sundown. lint one
might have to consult Mrs. 1). H. C.
about that part of the hospitality. You
do not say much about the disposition
of D. R. Cooper as a man, yet you say
lie can claim to nave seen all the im
provements grow up and many ot them
with his help. He is also one of
the discoverers of a way to the summit
of Mount Heod. In tli.it trip alone he
has carved his name on a verv high and
picturesque monument of God's own
shaping Cooper's Spur, Mount Hood.
May he live long to admire bucIi a
grand piece of uature's work clothed in
its mantle of eternal snow.
As one of your correspondents says, it
is conceded to lie a fact that Hood Kiver
is more widely known throughout the
world than any other place in Oregon.
If such be the case, I think the Glacier
should claim the honor of being the
hrst paper to let tlie outside world know
what a grand, fertile section of the state
Hood River valley is.
Another part of interest in your valu
able paper, is the items from each set
tlement or village. Quite natural for
every one to take an interest in his
neighbor s affairs. Such notes are more
pleasant to read than the police court
news whici play a very prominent part
in our city papers. They inspire one to
do good toward his fellowtnan, and
when one tinds a community that is
all pulling the same way to do" all thev
can for the benefit and comfort of oth
ers who are in trouble, we can say they
are a goou people to live amongst, a
people who do not lie around and mope,
but aie up and doing, always on tiie go
with a etrong good heart either lor busi
ness, basket Bocial, concert, church or
One item in particular under Mount
Hood notes was R. Leasure lost a cow
by eating dynamite and in another
copy about Mr. Leasure shifting some
logs anil getting lus foot crushed.
It is a pity the cow did not get in among
the logs that were to be shifted and ex
plode thereby saving Mr. Leasure a
great deal of labor and also the trouble
anil inconvenience of carrying his foot
in a sling, which is not a pleasant pre
dicament to lie in. I hope he is well
and able by this time to make up for
his loss and that his la9t season's work
iliay prove a profitable one to him, not
only in experience but financially as
Another item under the same heading
is V. Cooper reporting fire in dead
timber. Well, that is all right. Anoth
er item where he has been out deer
hunting and a controversy about horses
and points. Is it usual for a huntsman
to bring in deer without horns, or with
horns without points? If I am not
mistaken I read In one ot the back
numbers of the Glacier, one Warren
Cooper had just got a fine house built
on his claim. From that I take it he
has been on the hunt and got a dear
and when he gets her home will, 1 am
sure, greatly appreciate more than tlie
horned or pointed species. I hope to
see before long under the Mount Hood
notes when the home warming is to
take place, and that thev will not forget
the editor with a piece of bride's cake,
and the scribe a dance with the bride
should he be in the district at the time.
Wishing your paper every success in
the future and as the settlements grow
in population may the subscribers grow
for the Glacier. Tain yours truly,

APPLES GO TO
FROM HOOD RIVER ORCHARDS
Sent With Compliments Apple tlrtiw.
ers' 'nlon Finest Specimens to
he Found in the Valley.
President Roosevelt is probably eating
Hood River apples by this time. No
doubt he will think they are pretty fine.
Tho apples left hero with the compli
ments of the Hood River Apple Grow
ers' union, and were the best apples to
be found in the valley.
There, wete six boxed in the shipment
which went to New York w ith a car of
other apple-, and from there the fruit
was sent d'r -t to tbe "executive, man
sion at Washington City.
Two box i" of apples, one of Ortley
and one of .Siilz.'nherg, came from the
orchard of Mrs. Annie Lenz; the other
four boxe.- were fr ni the orchard of 15.
R. Tucker, mi I uere of 4he following
varieties: Xewiu vns, Hydes King of the
West, Manimmh Illack Twig, Arkansas
"Every apple was a perfect specimen
of its kind, "says K. A. Franz of the Apple
Growers' union, who assisted in prepar
ing the shipment. "The Newtown?
from the orchard of Mr. Tucker were
without blenii-h,and went 54 t ithe box.
The Oitley apples grown by Mrs. Lenz
looked like wax ininiitations, so perfect
were they. They were everyone of
tttem the finest specimens of upphs to
be found in the valley. Large" hand
some ones they were, running from 54
72 to the box."
ON M'COY CREEK
Amos Underwood was in the city last
Thursday and reported that John Park
and Abe Ames, who hail returned the
day before from the -McCoy creek dig
gings, arc jubilant over the prospects
which Underwood's mine is producing.
"Tlie bins say the ledge is widening,
and they expect by the time they have
gone anot her 40 feet they will get into
three feet of quartz," remarked Amos
Underwood to the Glacier man. "The
ledge you see was entered by a 'horse'
or wedge of common rock, and virtually
split iu two for a distance of about HO
feet. The further into the mountain
the tunnel goes, the closer together
come the two veins of ore, and 40 feet
further the boys expect the broken
ledge to unite."
Park and Ames spent two months in
the McCoy creek mines. When they
left, show was falling fast, but at the
time was only eight inches deep. They
left a. number jif prospectors in
the mountains who had come over
from the Lewis river country. There
has been more water in the McCoy
creek this last fall than for years, sas
Mr. Underwood. Great piles of drift
wood and logs that had accumulated for
'A) years or more were washed away
by the freshet.
Underivood is confident there, is some
thing go id in the McCoy creek mines.
There arc claims staked out for 15,000
feet over the mountain into which he is
running his tunnel. The mine owners
have every confidence that a railroad is
building through the Cispus pass, four
miles awav. This will assure a means
of getting the ore to the smelter.
Jim Langiile has a mine near by. His
cabin is about half a mile above thos'e of
Park and Ames.
Water Scarce in California.
Mr. Miller, of Southern California,
who has Is'en visitmg relatives in hast
ern Washington during the holiday
season, slopped eft at lbiod Kiver
la U'.... b 11m i vtiru.w.. liinia.tlf nu Ha.
' in: very favorably impressed with this
section as well as with the general pros
perity and good feeling in Eastern
Mr. Miller states that except for the
long drought in Southern California,
I cvcij iiiig in prosperous, me water
I supply, however, is becoming a very
serious piotiiem in the section ol Po
mona. Mr. Miller is a member of tlie board
of trustees of Pomona city, and in speak
ing of the question of having no licensed
saloons said: "We voted out' saloons
seven years ago and we are in no way
oppressed by not receiving revenue from
that source. Our streets and walks are
among the best of any city in the Union
as well as in neighboring cities where
saloons have not been abolished. No
one complains now of high taxes and
they are not high, on the other hand,
merchants say they have scarcely any
bad accounts and business is better.
There is no prospect of saloons ever be
ing voted in again.
GATES OPEN SUNDAYS
FOR INSTITUTE WORK
Special to the Glacier. v
Portland, Jan. 10. Sunday on the
Lewis and Clark Exposition grounds
will be observed in an enlightening and
edifying manner. Instead of tightly clos
ing the gates to the public all day, as
was the case at St. Louis, they will be
thrown open at noon, although all the
machinery will be stopped, and all the
exhibit buildings; except the palace of
fine arts, will be closed. '
One of the greatest series of inst tutes
the world has ever known is b.Mng plan
ned for the exposition, embracing, edu
cation, civics, charities aud corrections,
labor, science, history, and woman's
work. Notable men and women from
all pints of the world will be secured to
deliver addresses, including famous ex
ponets of Ihiddhaism, Mohammedanism,
and religion of Confucius. A general
program provides' for an institute on
each Sunday between Juno 1 and
October lo. The plan of keeping the
exposition open, besides giving the peo

OVER $500 EROM
56 APPLE TREES
"Some people have the idea that only
the East Side lands can grow fine ap
ples, "says E. A. Franz of the Apple
Grower's union, "but in this opinion
they are mistaken. Nobody ever saw
finer apples than the Newtowns sent to
President Roosevelt last week from the
orchard of B. R. Tucker.
"I was told when I came here that
the East Side wis the only place to find
land where fine apples would grow, and
of course 1 believed it, and continued
to lielieve it until I began to work last
fall in the office of the union.
"Why, the best colored Spitzetibeigs
in the whole valley came this year from
the orchards of Frank Fosberg and W.
II. Pugh of the West Side. These gen
tlemen had the largest percentage of
4-tier Spitz, w hich brought 1 2.10 a box.
"I haven't the exact figures with
me, but Ludwig Struck, three miles
south of the city, will clear over $11000
from 4,'.j acres of Yellow Newtowns.
And he lives on the West Side, where
they used to say you might 88 well try
to gather apples from oak trees, as to
expect the soil to produce them.
"Out at lieltuont, my brother, Bruno
Franz, has drawn over f)00 from the
ollice of the union, and he has more
coming to him, all from the sale of Yel
low New towns grown ou 50 trees. The
trees w ere eight years old."
