DfFCii BUILT AND 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.

I The hum of the big saws again fills the air at Purkertowu, the mills of the Davenport Bros. Lumber Co. having started up for the spring run yester day morning. About 40 men are em ployed and a large bunch of ties and railroad timbers are being tlumed daily to the yards in the lower valley. Frank Davenport returned recently from .Portland with a contract in his pocket to furnish piling and timber for the portage railroad now in course of construction around the rapids in the Columbia at Celilo. The Daven port Bros. Lumber Co. have also furnished ties for the Great Southern railroad, building out south of the The Dalles. E. E. Allen, recently of The Dulles, has been made general manager of the mills and business of the Daven port Bros. Lumber Co. of this city. Mr. Allen has moved to Hood Kiver with his family,' and is looking for property on which to build a home this miring. VOGT BROi OPEN CLOTHING STORE Vogt Bros, have opened for busi ness in the Broslous brick with a stock of men's furnishing goods, clothing, hats, and haberdasherie. This firm intends to carry a high grade stock of goods and hopes to be come firmly established in the busi ness community of this city. The firm is forced to put up with the inconvenience incident to a delay in the arrival of many of their goods, and for this reason have been unable to start with the store fitted up as they wish. Both gentlemen are well known in Hood lUver and the The Dalles, their former home, and their friends feel confident the young men will meet with deserved success. Dalies ltojs UUe Vogt a Dinner, After being employed in the dry-goods department of the A. M. Williams store for the past seven years, Will Vogt left yesterday for Hood 'Kiver, where he will go into partnership with his brother. Joseph, in a clothing store. Asa fare well send-off his companions) in the store gave him an oyster supper at Keller's ovster parlors Saturday night. His friends in The Dalles dislike to see Will leave and their best wishes for success follow him to his new home. Chron icle. Arc Seeking Kiglits ef Way. The Oregon Lumber Co. can givo oui nothing yet concerning the loca tion of their proposed railroad. Sur veyors have been at work all week on the Fast Side, where Engineer West has been interviewing the farmers concerning the rights of way. The Mount Hood Railway Co. has been organized, and last week articles of incorporation were llled at Salem, tho company having incorporated un der tho laws of Utah. Tho capital stock of the company is placed at 'i.'iO.OlKI, with a paid up stock of UO,000. All but one of the incorporators are Utah men. The incorporators are William II. Reeled, president ; Thomas D. Doe, vice president; Henry II. Rolapp, secretary; David Fccles, treasurer. H. li. Spencer, David C. Fccles, Joseph A. West, nil of Ogdiin ; Charles V. Nibley, W. W. Hitera and (leorge liomuey, of Salt Lake; and Charles T. Early of Hood Kiver, Or. Mason's Sulphur ami Lime Spray. Hood Iliver.Mar.l. Editor (ilacier: While attending tho meeting of the Oregon Hort icultural sorciety at Port land and the Northwestern Fruit growers' meeting at; Boise, Idaho, last January, 1 found I stood alone in experience in tho u.-c of sulphur and lime spray with caustic soda. At both meetings 1 tried to explain why 1 thought it was a superior method 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 ing, add enough water to complete tho formula. Warm water is prefer able, but cold wiil do after it is cooked. 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 tions speak very highly of it. At one 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, President Apple Irowers' Union. as Oregon's First Locomotive, Special to the Glacier. Portland, Mar "J. One exhibit at the Lewis and Clark expositon, which wi;l attract something more than usual in terest, will he the first locomotive used in this state, a mere pigmy when com pared with the massive engines ol today weighing, as it does, but 10 tons. This '"Baby" locomotive, was built in San Francisco in bSii"-li.H and imported here. For t years it made daily runs on wiiml-n tad- overs seven mile track along the Columbia river. At the expir ation of that tine, it was sold to David Hemes, a 4!)'er w ho returned it to that California metropolis. Mr. Hemes now vouchsafes his in tcutiau to evhibit the diinimiitive loco motive at the World's Fair, where he will place it alongside of a tHi-tun leviat han, recently constructed for the Ore gon Railway and Navigation company, the company that first owned the smaller engine. In so far as the latter is I:! feel long, the contra-! will be marked. More than thirty national convent ions are scheduled to convene in Port land during the Lewis and Chirk expo sition. Electricity in its every conceivable application, representing the most mar velous achievements in modern science, may be seen at the Lewis and Clark exposition. COSTS HIM $75 TO STEAL FINE HENS Sjtticiul to the Glacier. Goldendale, Wash,. Mar. 1 Two more chicken thieves were caught last night in possession of some of the nicest chickens in town. The thieves are now in the county jail awaiting trial. One of them was recently fined for this offense to the amount of i?'i5. and costs, amounting in all to 7S. The railroad strike is over. There is a new crew throughout, and trains are running on the regular schedule. Tho old crew were all paid off and discharged. The proposed new grade across the Big Klickitat river was surveyed by Deputy Surveyor Richardson, and was not considered practicable, it U-iug too steep to make a grade. This is on the Goldendale nnd Cumas Prairie road. Assessor ivayser expects to be ready by the middle of the month to begin assessing. The deputies have not yet been appointed.

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.
