NETS $500 FROM
53 APPLE TREES
Fir hundred dollars from 53 apple
treea. Tbla Is the record from the
orchard of G. D. Woodworth, two
mllea aouthweat of the city of Hood
River. The tree were 11 yeara old
and of the standard varieties New
towns and Spltzeuberga.
Several of these trees were shaded
by poplara set out as windbrakes, and
thus many of bis fine Spitzenbergs
were not highly enough colored to
be counted first class apples. This
urn of iWJO It should be stated was
made from first grade apples only.
The small apples and culls went to
Had Strawberries all Bummer.
M. Dumas of Mount Hood will set
out a patch of everblooming straw
berries this spring. He had a small
patch of these berries last summer,
whioh produced fruit from July 1 to
October 1, and he says be wouldn't
think of being without strawberries
and cream every summer hereafter.
Mr. Dumas finds his Mount Hood
farm too big to handle alone and is
looking for a tenant. His brother
arrived from France, and is occupy
ing the old bomsstead. Mr. Duma
will clear 10 acres of land this spring.
"The f armors of the upper valloy
should hold their cord wood until the
railroad reaches us," says Mr. Dumas
who will keep bis until that time.
The prioe be believes will be bettor,
and it will be cheaper then to mar
ket the wood.

If Wasco county, Oregon, can't come
in as "left bower" in the game of

In the summer of '86 or '87, the Ore
gon Pomologcal society was organized
at The Dalles, and at one of our meet
ings held at the farm of George
Snipes, the writer took the diameter
of several trees in bis orchard. One
cherry tree measured six feet six
Inches in circumference one apple tree
four feet four inches in circumfer
ence; one prune three feet six inches
Mr. Snipes settled there in 1852, and
perhaps soon planted these trees. If
that cherry tree has bad nothing bap
pen to it until now, pehaps it can
compete with Califorrnia.

"I am glad to see you take the prop
er stand concerning the railroad' re
marked C. F. Waldo of White Sal
mon, who was In the city last Friday.
"Yes the people can well atrord to be
liberal in the matter of rights of way.
They will soon get back more than
they can ever lose by giving away
the land now. "Of course no one
would expeot the railroad to Injure a
farmer's orchard or resldeno. The
company will pay for any injury done
a man's farm.' That railroad means a
great deal for Hood River. "
Mr. Waldo Is an old . railroad sup
erintendent and knows whereof he
talks. Mr. Waldo looks for a good
fruit year. The cold weather has done
no damage. The proposed union of
the White Salmon growers seems to
have fallen through with, says Mr.
Waldo. White Salmon, though, will
be on band with early berries. Mr.
Waldo believes the berry growers will
nnd enlarged markets this summer in
Portland, with the great number of
people who will be here from the East
to visit the Lewis and Clark exposi
Mr. Waldo Is a friend of the Glacier
and declares he never saw a better

It" said be, "and at White Salmon we
watch for it just as regularly as Thurs
day afternoon comes around."
First Serf ham Machine In Tailor.
The Hall brothers are new arrivals
from the state of Kansas. They
orougnt witn tnem a sorghum macb
lne, the first ever brought to Hood
River valley, and for that matter the
first In Wasco county.
Sorghum was grown as an expert
ment by several of the farmers lust
summer, and found to do very well
in Hood River, A. O. Nolde and
Alvln Herahey grew some of the cane.
Now that there Is a machine here,
there Is no reason why the ploople of
uood Kiver cannot enjoy this Kastern
delicacy. To many people it tastes as
good as maple syrup.
The Hall brothers came with a car
load of goods, a oow, some hay and
1200 pounds of corn meal. They are
here from Robinson, Kas. The three
brothers are W. Hall, C. E. and J. H,
Hall. W. Hall was here last summer
and secured some laud north of the
Columbia. All three are now batching
in a ooltage near liojman a store.
Their families will arrive about the
first of March. - '

Foot ball is a proper college sport,

Thursday of last week was the 5&1

Grandma Ellia as their many friouds
delight to call them. The woniuu of

by coming In upon them with Itaskttts

things to eat. Merchant Gill and
Charles T. Early of the Oregon Lum
ber Co. also sent out their delivery
wagon with provision. The old
couple were touched by these acts of
kindness, and felt very grateful to
thsir friends. It appears that the wor

Was a Brilliant Dancing Party.
The dancing party last Wednesday
evening in the Knights of Pythias
hall was decidedly the most fashion
aple and brilliant affair of the social
season. The decorations were elabor
ate and beautiful. A maze of bright
red hearts buug suspended from the
ceiling, while little cuplds graced the
walls. The creations carried out very
successfully the sentiment of at. Vul-
eutine. Evergreens added to tlio
beautiful effect, while potted palms
and other plants converted the stage
into a peautiful bower.' and added to
the attractiveness of the docorations.
The young women in charge of the
party were the recipients of profuse
congratulations for the decided suc
cess of the dance. Thoy had accom
plished wonders in transforming the
spacious hall into a thing of beauty
and a scene of gaiety, and spared, noth
ing in adding to the attractiveness of
the surroundings and the entertain
ment of their guests.
Danclug began promptly at 0
o'clock, preceded by an overture by
Everests superb orchestra. 'The
grand march was beautifully executed
Mr. and Mrs. R. Norman Young led
the march, and were followed by 75
couples. It was a few minutes after
1 o'clock when the last extra had been
danced, and the strains of "Home,
Sweet Homo" floated over the ball
room. Punch and cakes was served
by two little girls. The usual pro

Williams evidently desires it to
be understood that these are not his

back on all visitors, says The Dalles
Chronicle. A few days since a young
attorney from Portland desired very
much to see the man who has made
himself so (injfamuous, and accord
ingly entered the jail with a Dalles
attorney. His cell is dark and on
entering they found Williams lying on
bis bunk. A light was lit; but the
prisoner refused to look up, turning
Lis back and remaining so while they
were in jail. A number of school
teachers were inspecting the jail last
week and desired to seo Willimas.

HAVE DAILY MAIL
Underwood people are hopeful the
postal authorities will grunt them a
daily mail service in the near future.
Postmisstress Diirk received a com
munication recently Hrking if there
was anything that could m done to
better the service for Underwood post
office, aud she replied that a daily
service would l.e appreciated, and
that Urn patron would also like to
have a money order office.
A change has recently been made in
the arrival of Die mail from Hood
River. It formerly left this ofllce at
7:10 in tho morning. Hereafter the
mail from ..Underwood will arrive
iu Hood Kiver ut it :IiO, and leave for
Underwood after the noon train from

an opportunity to receive Portland

Jim ilayiies, who was iu tho city
Saturday from Underwood, says '.tl
men are at work in tho -Moody logging
camp of the Menominee Lumber Co.
ou the north side of Underwood
mountain. As the lo'S are sent over
the bluff in a chute, the loggers in
this camp are independent of any in
junction concerning the driving of
White Salmon river.
The government authorities have
ordered the lumber company to re
more the (lam they coiiNtructod at the
mouth of tho White Salmon river.
This dam chunked the current of the
stream and ruined Hie bout landing
at Underwood. A unnit amount of
sand luis been depohited, aud the
eddy where the boats were accustomed
to land is so hiiallow that it is impos-
siple to get witlim landing distance
of the chore. Mr. Ilajnessays there
has boon considerable feeling aroused
over the matter.
There have been no developments

Campbell of the Regulator line has

will build it. Mr. Campbell proimwed
to have surveyors Inn lines for the lo
cution of the dock, and they are ex
pected soon to arrive.

Nearly Half Hie Teachers fall.
Almost half of the teachers w ho took
examinations for first, second and
third grade certificates last week have
failed and those who have boon teach

tion, says the Pendleton Tribune. The
examination in ueaiilv nil subjects
was unusually rigorous but the sub

the most dillicult. .Many of the ap
plicants who received high murks in
nearly all studies failed almost utter

accordingly the general average was
A number of those teachers who
failed on that account are considered
most successful instructors in the
lower grades, but ns they were unpre
pared for the "sticker" they will be
compelled to resign. Many of the
teachers also w ho have failed received
high enough averages for a second

general average for a llrst grade cer
