HOOD ftlVER GLACIER, THURSDAY, JANUARY 26, 1005.
The past four days have been stren
uous cues for the writer. It required
thn men aud a horse four days to
make one transfer in Udell, to wit: lo
transfer the Little White store stable
from the east side of Main street and
northward about 300 feet to the west
side of the street. The life of the lease
had nearly expired, but now it is per
manently located and the horses will
soon know their stalls again.
The dance given by Ehrck and Col
liiiH, last Friday night, provd the real
thing, and by far the biggest social event
of the midwinter season. Forty-six
numbers were sold and a hundred peo
ple were present. Will Sears had ad
vertised a free dunce at his hall the
same evening, but the crowd was Binall
and they adjourned and came to Udell,
bears with the others, and all went
merry until 4 in the morning.
AVe are informed that the hall is rent
ed for a dance once a week for two
months ahead. The long-felt demand
for a good comfortable hall has been
met, and the public is showing its ap
preciation. Glen Fabrick and Mrs. Margaret Reid
were guests of Mr. and Mrs. 0. G. Rob
erts at their Tanalcwood home Satur
day night and Hunday. They made
part of the trip in a buggy and the bal
ance in a cutter, returning Sunday af
ternoon. Ulva Collins, whose name was last
week changed by the Glucier, regrets
exceedingly that his name last year was
not William, for it is a long time to wait
for the return of another leap year.
Mr. Black returned home last Sunday
from Portland, where he had been for
' several weeks in care of his physician.
Mr. Black has many friends who wish
for him a speedy and permanent recov
ery, lie is a good citizen and capable
of accomplishing much if he could only
engage in business actively.
While the weather Is somewhat dis
agreeable during the midwinter months
in Hood River valley ,yet they are not de
void of pleasure, if we only get into the
secrets of nature out In the country. 1
have just finished reading an article In
the Independent by K. P. Powell, au
thor of "The Country Home." This ar
ticle furnishes a text not only for an
article along this line, but is inspiration
to all who are fortunate enough to have
a home in the country to improve upon
the methods of living in that home that
they may finally have, an ideal home.
'Tin true, thero is work iu the country,
but this outdoor work that the country
provides is the mainspring of life. Men
who have always actively engaged in
work or business and who retire in old
age very soon go into decline, both phys
ically and intellectually. Idleness and
contentment do not walk hand in hand.
At the eleventh hour a petition for
organizing Cascade county was sent to
the Little White store for signatures,
and the very next day was taken away.
Hud the petition been sent at the proper
time, many names could have been se
cured that probably will not begotten.

Some time ago your Odell correspond
ent was praising the inspiring beauty of
Hood River valley as seen on a clear
day from the summitof The Dalles pass.
He is right. It is well worth a trip.
But that is not the only vantage point
from which to view the valley. From
the summit of the Ilooth hill one may
f;et as near a oiru s-eye view 01 ine vai
ey as is possible outside a balloon. Nol
only can one see the lower valley but
the upper part as well. J lie view ol
Mount Hood can not be excelled from
any other vantage point.
Un the summit ol tins hill Is an ir
regular basin containing aliout ten
acres. There are about two acres of
level land In the bottom of it covered
with a good growth of willows. The
basin is probably 75 to 100 feet deep.
From indications we believe that at one
time this was a secondary crater to
Mount Hood. Such being the case, it is
easy to account for the nature of the soil
on the Flat.
Now. if your correspondent wishes to
view a truly inspiring sight, we advise
him by all means to tret on the summit
of this hill.

night, the attendance at literary the

Willow Flat didn't send Items to the

Dukes V alley, of course, and we hope
to see items from there every week.
Will Dodge says it pays to advertise
in the Glacier. He announced for sale
two grubbing machines and sold one of
them for more than he asked for it.

amounted to f 41.30. We hope this will
fix walks enough bo the pupils will not
have so much mud to walk through to
and from school.

that of a walnut to a hazel-nut. They
were simply boosters! My wife was so
pleased that she had to call in the
neighbors at once to see them and to
sample them. All were surprised to
see such nice apples. I put some
in the "show" window of Kuckuk &

what expresses great admiration for the
