WATER IS RUNNING
The high flume of the Farmers' Irri
gating Co. over Pine Creek gulch has
lieen replaced by a Hume and ditch
along the side of the mountain, und
water U now running in this canal, so
M. If. Nickolsen, secretary of the
company, informs the (ilacier.
ilouday, Manager A. U. Stfiten
started out with a force of men to
clean the ditches and widen the main
ttunm and canal in places where it is
considered too narrow. . The canal
dug around the side of the lilulT has
been constructed seven feet wide,
which is considered ample for all of
the water that will he necessary to
carry through this ditch.
The Fanners' Irrigating Co. expect
to bring down between l."00 and KS00
inches of water this summer. Con
tracts have already been signed for
1100 inches. There are several parties
says Mr. Nickelseu, who haven't the
money to secure permanent shares in
the ditch company, and if they can
not secure water for their fruit their
crops will be a total failure.
Hero is a diliicult proposition for
the board of directors of the com
pany, ami they must meot it in several
cases by selling water at so much per
inch for the season.
Some sort of security will be taken
on the crops of farmers securing water
in this manner.
Tliouirlit Clark (lot up the Fair.
"Is Senator Clark behind the fair
you are going to have out there this
summer'.'" inquired a well-dressed
and apparently well educated man on
the train the other day of 11. li. Orr,
who was returning from a trip to
ri lut iv( s in the Fast.
Mr. Orr says there are wholo lots of
people who have no more idea of what
the Lewis and Clark fair is, but he
talked with hundreds of people who
have heard there is to be something
here, and they are determined to
come v,e.t tiiis summer and look the
country over, and if they like it will
return and make their home here.
.Mr. and .Mrs. Orr and little boy
returned Tuesday afternoon. They
left here November 'Xi, and have
bleu traveling from placo to place
ever since. Most, of the time as
spent in ( diio. The winter was very
severe, says Mr. Orr. For months
tiie iiieretiry ranged from zero to M7

Hood Iliver.Mar.l. Editor (ilacier:
While attending tho meeting of the
Oregon Hort icultural sorciety at Port

experience in tho u.-c of sulphur and
lime spray with caustic soda. At

of preparing this spray, and since that
time many inquiries, have come to nie
relative to how to prepare the spray
Fvery miril brings me letteis asking for
the f omnia; so, to benefit all, lwill
ask you to print the following formula :
2') pounds lime; lo pounds sulphur; ;"
pounds caustic soda; udd enough
water to make oil gallons of tho mix
ture. Mix the sulphur into a thin paste
with warm water then add it to your
unslaked lime, then slake your lime
with warm water, but do not drown
it. After your lime and sulphur is
slacked and while at the highest heat
add your caustic soda ; keep stirring
it and do not let it burn dry. At all
times keep enough warm water in
the mixture to make it a paste. After
the caustic soda lias stopped its boil

tho formula. Warm water is prefer

This spray is no new-fangled all'air.
It has been experimented wit h by
our government experiment stations
for the past three years. Both the
New York and the Connecticut sta

station last year Id dill'erent sprays
were used and this one left the h ast
percentage of live scale. 1 used it on
my 'JO-ucro orchard last season with
perfect success and expect to use it
again this season. It saves much
labor and time over the old methods
of cooking over a fire. Don't lie in
a hurry to spray; wait until tho buds
are swelling. There is no danger of
it burning the trees before the buds
are bursted. A. I. MASON,

Doth Placed in the Same (irave.
Particularly sad is the death of Mrs.
Virgil Wincliell and little daughter
who wero buried this morning in the
little graveyard at Pine Grove. The
distracted husband and father is be
side himself with grief.
Monday afternoon, Mr. Wincliell
went to Portland with his three-year-old
daughter Lena, who was suffering
from peritonitis, and whom he took
to the hospital lor special treatment.
.Mrs. Wincliell had been contiuod to
her bed with grip nnd symptoms of
pneumonia, but when their child was
taken to the hospital, the mother felt
hopeful of its recovery, and got up
that nt t -i 1 1 hi in .
At '2 o'clock in the morning Mrs.
Wincliell was dead. Death it is sup
posed us brought about through heart
trouble. Mr. Wincliell returned Tues
day morning, and the following morn
ing received word that his daughter
had passed away.

the Pino Grove church this Thursday
muring, attended by a large concourse
of friends and neighbors.
Mr. and Mrs. Wnchell were among
the early pioneers of Hood River.

father, George Knnpp, nearly i!Ti
years ago, w hile Mr. Wincliell is one
of the first white persons born in the
valley. .Mrs. Wincliell would have

Last Day of School, April 21.
The Hood River public, schools will
close the term, Friday, April 'Jl, when
there will be special exercises for the
graduating class of the eighth grade.
The class this year will be i" strong.
Superintendent Wiley is arranging to
secure some prominent speaker of the
state to deliver an address to the grad
uates. It has not, been decided yet whether
the hHli grade pupils w ill hold grad
uating exercises. While it is possible
the district will not be able to add the
llth grade this coming year, it is al
most certain to add the third and
fourth years two years from now, and
make for Hood River a high school
with as complete a course as any
in the state.

in behalf of the school. 'The flag is
