HOOD RIVER, GLACIER, THURSDAY, APRIL 13, 1905.
The cilimitio conditions for Hood
River during the months of February
and March hare lieeu very peculiar.
The temperature in February, while
not the coldest that ha been l.uown
during that mouth in Hood Riv
er, the mean for the month was
IB. 5, which is one-half degree warmer
thau the mean temperature of all the
yearn since 1HK!) which is 3ti. Since
lm'J there are but four years when the
temperature reached a lower point
thau on February V2 this year, that
was in the years iSiO-U-4 and 99',when
me mercury dropped to 3, 10, 4 and
0 below respectively ; but it must be
remembered that the records were kept
at a higher altitude during those years
man at present wiilcn will make
difference of several degrees.
The maximum temperature for Feb
ruary was bH degrees on the 24th.
Since 1889 this has been exceeded but
once, in 1891, when the temperature
readied oil above.
In precipitatiou February this year
was iar neiow tne nornial.wuich is 5.1
inches. Since 1884 there was but one
year, 18!)5, in which the precipitation
was loss than this year for February,
1.22 inches, in that year it was 1.10
inches. Last year it was the heaviest
in all these years, or 8.96 inches.
For March the el i mat to conditions
were much the same as for February.
gradually gliding up the scale of tem
peratures and affording a more liberal
supply of moisture.
The minimum temperature for March
was .11 degrees on the 11th, the niaxi
mum, 77 ou the on the 2d. The latter
was the highest point reached by the
mercury in Hood River since 188!),
the nearest approach being in 1900
The mean maximum for March 1889
to 19(14 inclusive is (30, that for the
present year is 57, three degrees below
normal, and yet the mercury climbed
three degrees higher this year than in
any other year during March since the
records have been kept. Auother pe
culiar feature is that the mean temper
ature, 48 degrees for March this year
is six degrees higher than the mean
temperature for March since 1889,
which is 42 degrees. The highest
mean temperature for March in all
these years was 52 in 1900, and the low
est H8 in 1897.
The precipitation for the month was
3.74 inches, which is very nearly
normal, 3.79 inches. Last year the
precipitation for March was 6.70
inches. The heaviest precipitation
during March since 1884 was in 1904,
when it was 12.07 inches. This has
been exceeded but very few times
i i any month since the records have
been kept. In November 1896 it was
16.55, the heaviest precipitatiou for
any one month of which we have any
record. Tho mean precipitatiou for
December for the years 1884 to 1S)04
inclusive is 7.74, making it the banner
month for rainfall. The mean annual
rainfall for Hood River dumg these
years is 38.38
Up to the first of April the condi
tions were very favorable for a bump
er crop of all kinds of fruit in Hood
River. The plums, cherries, peaches
and pears, seemed to vie with each
other iu their attempts to put on the
heaviest load of blossoms. What
effect of the present cold nights and
light frosts will have will be a matter
i;l great interest to tne rruit growers
of the valley; put as Hood Kiver is
the only place in the world where we
can have a hard killing, frost without
doing any damage to tender vegeta
tion it is hoped the cold shoulder
mother nature is giving us now will
not result disastrously.

"othlng in the Paper."
It is a well known fact that the
Hood River Glacier is one of the best
weelky newspapers published iu the
United States. It comes out week
after week just overflowing with news,
and brimfuil of good things about
that famous town, and indeed, there
has been no other factor equaling
the Glacier in building up the indus
tries of Hood River and the tributary
Having an idle hour on our hands
when down at the fruit fair last fall
we went around and interviewed some
of the business men, and we found
the most of them had a good word for
the Glacier. But we found one man,
merchant, apparently not a very
prosperous one, who said that the
town would go along like anything if
they had a good newspaper, for the
Glacier was a detriment rather than a
We do not write this to discourage
the Glacier people, but simply to
point a moral. And that is, where a
merchant falls behind in the business
march, or a citizen is not prosperous,
the first excuse is tlfe newspaper.
And you will usually look iu vaiu iu
the columns of the condemned paper
for that merchant's ad and on the sub
scription list for that citizens' name.
