cascade Mills is the name the mill
lnK company has adopted, and which
name will appear on the sacks filled
at the tlouriiiK mill. There will be
three grades of flour, "known as Silver
l'usi, lioou Kiver and Cupid Patent,
ihe wheat will come from Eastern
ureou ana WashniKtou.
ine latest improved machinery has
oeeu installed in the mill, and Iklaua
ger Alnin. who is a thoronishlxr
cal miller of years experience, will be
enabled to turn out the very best
nour product. As the first by-prod
uct mere is silver iJust Uraham,
Whole Wheat and Farina.
Ihe sacks of the Cascade mills are
printed in green and red. The Silver
Dust brand contains a picture of
mount Hood as taken from Lost lake
the Hood Kiver has a view of Hood
river looking up the river from the
wagon bridge iu the east end of the
city, ihe emblem on the Cupid
brand is suggested by the name.
Several millwrights were sent west
with the machinery from the found
nes and factories in the East, and
they all state that the Hood River
mill is of the latest type, and in the
charge of a miller who thoroughly un-
uersiamis nis Dusiness.
A Glacier representative was shown
through the mill last week, when
the machinery was put in motion by
turning on the water power. The
power that operates the mill is sup
plied by the water power system of
Josoph A. Wilson, who gets hiB water
irom Indian creek, in the southern
part of the city. The water is carried
by ditch and flume for a little over
a mile to a reservoir on the brow of
the hiU,from where it is conveyed in
a large pipe 3500 feet long to the flour
mill on the railroad track.
W hen Mr. Alpin turned the brake of
the sprocket wheel attachment con
nected with the huge water motor,
the iielts and machinery liegan to
move as if put together with velvet
bearings. Mr. Wilson's water power is
ine largest individual enterprise ever
undertaken in Hood River. He has
spent no small sum of money in the
construction of his reservoir and the
laying of his pipe line, but he haB to
day the only power system in opera
tion in the city, and one that with
the aid of gravitation is operated at
very little expense. He has control
of sufficient water in Indian creek
to furnish power for several flouring
Mr. Wilson by supplying power at
reasonable rates mado it possible for
the flouring mill to locate here, and
is in poistion to supply motor force
to many other manufacturing enter
prises that should be induced to in
vest their capital in Hood River. The
day is not far distant when the river
front should lie lined with mills and
The Cascade, mills represent an
outlay of 820, OtK). The capacity of
the mill, now 1(H) barrels a day, cau
lie dcublod at a little expense. W. E.
Kotehry, who was looking over the
mill last Siiturday, remarked that
irom hiH observation of the enter
I rising people of Hood River the mill
would soon be able to double its ca
purity. At its present capacity the
mill will grind a carload of grain in a
21 hour run. This means 3U0 cars of
Snow Upson, the leading black
smiths of the city, have installed a
power trip hammer that will strike
000-pound blow. The hammer i
well as the other machinery in the
shop, la operated by water power fur
nished by Joe Wilson's water system,
receutly completed.
Y hue the trip hammer is pounding
away on a piece of steel, another
blacksmith bores a hole with a power
drill. The furnace is fanned with a
power blower, and a bandsaw, will
in a moment saw through a piece of
tne hardest oak that would require a
half hour to sever with an ax.
With this new machinery, installed
at a cost of J500, Snow 4 Upson are

Mr. Snow is a wagon-maker as well

X City With Like Possibilities.
"'No town in Oregon seems to me
ito have the possibilities before it as
does Hood River." remarked W. E.

manager of the Calkins Newspaper
Syndicate, who was visiting in Hood
Kiver lust Saturday, the guest of J.
F. JiatcMder.
"Uive tiling in particular that ira
Vresxed tm," continued Mr. Rothery,
"is tlx) ttiyturent belief among the
nitizptiM of yorflr town that they have
something to lUe for. Everywhere
there are green lawns, well kept
yards, and the houses, even if they
are not all pretentious mansions, tie
owner has taken pride enough in them
to paint tbem and to see that the
yards and lan ns are well kept. This
all gives a stranger a good impression
of a town or city."
Mr. Rothery is the Portland rep
resentative of the Orchard and Farm
of San Francisco, which will have a
special article on Hood River in the
current mini tier. Mr. Rothery prom
ises to give Hood River frequent men

Sudden Death of Mrs. Cooper.
Mrs. Henrietta Knerr Cooper, wife
of Dr. F. Cooper, died on Thursday
evening March 2, at the family resi
dence in Hood River, aged 50 years,
u mouths, and 27 days.
Mrs. Cooper had been ill about
one week, and while her. condition
gave her family a great deal of anx
iety, it was not thought that her sick
ness would terminate fatally. Dr.
Cooper came from Iowa to Hood Riv
er last November, for the benefit of
his wife's health. The change of
scene and climate wrought a uresf
improvement iu her condition so
that the family recently concluded to
make their permanent home iu Hood
River. Her unexpected death was
great shock to her family.
Deceased was born in t ;.rmuntrillu
Iowa iu 1804. In 1876 she removed to
Montgomery county, Iowa, where she
resided until 18H3, when she was unit
ed In Diarriugu with her burutt Uuu.
band, Dr. Cooper. Since her mar
riage until coming to Hood River, the
iainuy resided at V illisca, J.owa.
Mrs. Cooper was a woman of prom
inence and influence in her home city.
She was an active and devoted mem
ber of the Methodist Episcopal church
and during all her life time was a
Arm believer in the Christian religion.
The strong influences of her life ran
out through channels of beniflcenee
and philanthropy to tiloss humanity.
At the time of lier death Mrs. Cooper
wai; past chief officer cf the Rath
bone Sisters, past noble grand of the
Rebeccas and president of tho Knights
and Ladies of Security, and had rep
resented these benevolent orders in
the Iowa state chapters.
The intelligence of her sudden death,
to her large circle of neighbors aud
friends in Villisca, Iowa, where so
large a part of her life had been spent,
will lie a deep aud painful blow, but
the influence of her well-spent life will
remain to further enrich and help
these lives.
The funeral services were conducted
at the Congregational church Sat
urday morning by liov. J. L.Hershner
assisted by Rev. W. C. (iilinore. As
the family had planned to make Hood
River their home, tho mortal remains
of Mrs. Cooper were laid to rest in
Idlewilde cemetery. Her husband,
Dr. Coojier, and their daughter, Miss
Torida, as well as other members of
the family, have the deep, heartfelt
sympathy of the people of Hood Riv
