Hood Rivor public schools will have
the proud distinction of exhibiting
at the Lewie and Clark exposition the
only niiinuitl triiiniiiR work from Was
co county. It will posHilJy bo a mr
urine to niuny to loarn that the youna
men of Hood Rivor hib school hnve
heon doing manual training work aince
the first of tho year. The boys have
a work nhop in the school building on
the hill. Several of the studeuts have
had Homo experience in this work in
Eastern schoolh. While Hood Kiver
does not expect to make the showing
that can be made by schools from the
larger cities w here they have greater
facilities for work of thin kind, yet
the exhibit from this city will be a
credit to tho fcc.liool and to tho stud
ents. The cabinets in which the exhibits
of work from the Hood Kiver school
will be built by tho students In tho
luminal training department. These
cabinets if bought elsewhere would
cost $15 or flH.
A meeting of tho apodal committee
of Wasco county teachers who have in
charge the arrangements for tho edu
cational display at the Portland fair,
met last Saturday in The Dalles, ln
tttructious as to tho manner of collect
ing tho exhibits from tho several
schools of the county will tie printed
in pamphlet form and distributed to
the teachers.
It was arranged that the schools of
Tho Dalles and Hood Kiver should
make their exhibtls by grades. That
Is, the work of one grade will be ex
hibited as such, while from other
schools, the work of the school will be
placed touothor with no distinction
as to the grades who executed tho
I'rofessor Wiley lielioves the schools
of Hood Kiver and the valiey will lie
able to prepare a very creditable ex
hlbit. Hood Kiver is so well known
among Eastern people, that those who
visit the lair next summer will be
desirous of learning something about
the schools of this country and what
tho pupils can do. The teachers are
now ut work collecting matter.
Hood i.anil Yet to he Hud.
"There is plenty of good land yet
to be had in tho Miuadoka country,"
remarked L. V. Haynes, who recently
returned from his claim on tho Hnake
river. "Eighty acres is all one man
is permitted to take up. When tho
government ditcti iscompletod In lwi.
each land owner will bo given HO
inches of water, Ho will pay for this
at the rate of wi an acre until paid
fur. "The total payment cannot lie
determined until the government work
is completed, but it is not to exceed
SCiO an acre. Homo believe it will not
go over 114. Thus a land owner will
have 80 acres and a perpetual wuter
right, all secured in moderate pay
ments. "
Mr. Haynes says there are many
people there from Seattle, Chicago
and even New York city. Thousands
of people are crowding into Miuado
ka. Work is plentiful, though wages
are not so very high. The railroad
construction superintendent is paying
2.i;r per day for laborers. Workmen
on the big dam get '20 cents an hour,
but it is giveu out that 400 men will
bo put to work in the spring with an
increase in tho wage scale. Hoard
with a bunk can be secured at $3 a
"Tho- land Is not dldleult to clear, "
continued Mr. Haynes. "One man
can chop oft Z of au acre sage brush in
a day. Tho brush will burn at any
tlmo of tho ?yoar. While vory little
can bo raised on the laud until tho
water is brought out, a squatter can
get his place in line shape fur plant
ing by the tlmo tho ditch Is complet
ed, ami he can make a living working
out in the menntime. Tho Miuadoka
country no doubt has a great future.
"In ad. lit tun to big irrigating
schemes the government is arranging
to sink wells every throo miles over
the country. "
Heap the Noted Humorist.
Cyrus lirownleo Newton, the Cali
fornia humorist and entertainer, will

a number of leading educational In
stltutous iii tho Interior of tho state,

Iirofessor of elocution with tho St.
gnatlus college of Sau Francisco.
His splendid humerus entertain
ments attracted wldo attention in his
native state. Ho has appeared over 50
times in San Francisco alone, before

The following Is published at the
request of tho W., C. T. U. :
l.vansville, Wis., Is a thriving little
city in Rock county, and has never
had a licensed saloon. Eighty per
cent of tho people who live there own
their ow n homes. Tho two banks have
$:iTO,000 ou deposit, and the homes aro
kept iu splendid shape, all nicely
painted and repaired.
It owns its owu water and lighting

Evansville, Wis., .Inly 7, 1!)04. Geo.
T.l'rather, Hood River, Or. Dear Sir:
The statements ou slips aro not iu tho
least orerdrawu. Our banks proiiablv
havo more than ?100,000 on deposit
now. Yes, wo occasionally havo a
blind pig, but wo havo never failed to
get rid of t hem in short time. The
worst thing we havo to handle is the
practice of a few of the boozers w ho
pool their com and semi some one to
.laynesville to buy a dozen or so pints
of whisky, but no respectable drinker
would club with such parties and the
aforesaid booera seldom have money
enough for more than one drunk so
that there is not much damage dono.
There is considerable lioer shipped
in to private parties who take it hon e
and use it in a rational manner.
Would rather have all tho boot-leggers,
pliud pigs, ct al, that ever have
lieeu here ami all working thier hard- j
est than to have one saloon. 1 was a
travelling man for some years, doing
business in several states, had no realty
of uiy own at that time, and picked
out this place for a home, aud a resr
donce for 17 years has proven tho wis
dom of my choice.
. In the whole 17 years I have not
seen a dozen persons drunk and reel
ing on the streets. Our druggists are
clean men and try tokoep their sales
of liquor confined to medicinal pur
poses. No doubt they are lied to and
deceived at times, but we think but
few confirmed drinkers can get liquor
on any pretence whatever.
We have a store building that can
not l)e beaten in the state, costtng in
tho neighborhood of $.10, (XM, covers
nearly a half-acre of ground! yearly
sales will prolwbly go to fcWO.OOO this
year. Another just as nice, inougn
not quite so large, is now going up.
You will find on tho back of this some
thing more of our city. 1 send you
some papers lu separate enclosure.
Respectfully yours, M, J. FISHER.
What an Outsider Saw.
Gilmer, Wash., Jan. '25. Editor
Glacier: On our way home from
Eastern Washington we stopped yester
day at Mosier to pay a visit to friends
at that burg. We wero Introduced
to a nice old couple from Hood River
and being somewhat interested in the
welfare of that city and lis people, we
were much surprised to learn from
the (dd lady that Hood Kiver people,
including the mayor, city, council and
marshal, were up iu armsand prepar
ed to do some cutting loose.
Leslie Butler, E. U Smith and Lou
Morse, so it was stated (we expwtcd
tho latter would) had gone to Portland
to get some big; knives and a grind
stone, to enable them to do tho cut
ting. They propose to begin at Mosier
and to cut south, but don't know just
how far south, but hoped they would
not cut Mount Hood. When The
Dalles people heard about the conspir
acy they forthwith sent the sheriff
to arrest everyone in Hood Kiver.
The not-fellers, though, got wind of
it, and quickly sent for Captain Cook
and liill Ovorbaugh of While Salmon,
and when they came they saw the sher
iff at tho hotel, but did not know what
was up until told. Well, these two,
and liill Jordan (Hill Ash liciugoiitot
town) were to tako tho sheriff way
out near Mount Hood ami there turn
him loose in the wilderness wit lniut
anything to eat. Hut Captain Cook
thought this would be too bud, and
ran down to a milliner shop to gel
five cents worth of crackers. Hut,
w hen the hotel was reached they found
the sheriff had lit out, and all wert
looking for his trucks in the light
snow. Hut it is thought the sherill
took it with him aud is glad of it.

Startling Hut True.
People the world over were horifh il
on learning or the burning ol a uuifagi
theatre in which nearly 000 people lost
lliclr lives, yet more than five times
this miiutier or over K,ouo people rllcil
from pneumonia in Chicago during the
same year, with scarcely a passing no
tice, livery one of these cases of
pneumonia resulted from a cold and
oould have been prevented by the
timely use of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. A great many who bad every
reason to fear pneumonia have warded
It of! by the prompt use of this remedy.
The following is an Instance of this
sort: "Too much cannot he said In
favor of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
and especially for colds and influenza.

saved her life when she was threatened
with pneumonia." W. 1). Wilcox, l-

Welcome Iter. W. C. (Ilmore.
Tho reception at the Congregational
parsonage last Friday night, extended
to Rev. Gilmore and family by the
monitors of tho congregation and
friends of tho church, was largely
attended. Tho evening was very
pleasantly spent lu conversation and
later refreshments were served. There
was a recitation by Miss Frances
Hragg, and some excellent music by
little Florence Hroslus. The recitat ion
and music were much appreciated.
Rev. Mr. Gilmore, although a resi
dent of the city but a few months,
as already endeared himself to the
people, aud his earnest etiorts for the
upbuilding of tho community have
made htm a factor among tho citi
zens. Himself and family lire delight
oil with the town and valley. The
expressions of welcome on behalf of
the members and friends of the con
grogatlou were very cordial.
