Visiter Writes About Heed Kiver.
II. V. Davidson who visited recent
ly with A. C. liuck of this city,
writes as follows to thoMinot (N. 1). )
We arrived at J food River and were
cordially received by Albert C.
liuck and family. Mr. Hi ck and I
were comrades in the army together,
and had not met since we were
mustered out in ('.". It was a happy
reunion for us lc:!i, i ud miido our
short stay in Hood Kiver very pleas
Mr. and Mrs. liuck, Mrs. D.ividson
and 1 drove out 111 a carriage,
through Hood Kiver valley, towards
Mount Hood, ten or 15 miles. The
day was warm and sunny, almost per
feet. 'Die mountain was a great sur
prifo to me, its great height was
really awe inspiring. Measuring it as
wo could with our eye from its base
to its snow capped peak nearly 1'2,IK.K
We could also see Mount Adams in
Washington, the other side of the
Columbia river, but although it is
really the higher of the two on ac
count of its sides being ragged and
cut up with canyons and water cours
es, it diil not look as high as Mount
Hood l!ier valley is famous for its
wonderful strawberries and not much
less for her apples. The strawberry
is known here aH Clark's seedling ori
ginating nearly years ago near
The land is mostly subdivided into
five, ten and 20-acro tracts and are
called ranchos. A man is a ranchman
if he cultivates ten acres of straw
berries just the same as though he
had '10 acres. These tracts are all
under irrigation and are valued at
from fcX) to 85tK per acre. There is
do much expense attending the
strawberry industry I am told, it is
not us profitable as growing apples.
Mr. Davidson, of the Davidson Fruit
Co. informed mo that Hood Kiver had
shipped out 90 carloads of strawber
ries and several hundred carloads
of apples. An apple orchard was
shown mo, the owner of which had
refused ijill'OO an acre for it, and I
am told it has yielded a net profit of
iJoiHI per acre each year for several
years past. They put a lot of work
on their bind, and have strawber
ries and apple growing down to a sci
ence. Apple trees are sprayed from
four to six tiir.os, during the year, to
protect them from the scale and other
insects. The ground is cultivted
level and shallow and is as clean as
a garden, not a weed to be seen. 1
would rather own an apple orchard
in Hood Kiver valley than a gold mine
in the mountains. I was shown
through the Davidson Fruit Com
pany's packing house and box factory
and while there purchased a box of
llyds King apples and Font them to
Mr. Ace lienton, Minot.
They are a large apple but not the
largest that grow here. There is no
place on the Pacific coast where the
coloring of the apple is as perfect as
in Hood Kiver valley. Hood river is
a montain stream three times greater
than that of Mouse river at Minot,
and it is a wild, turbulent stream
with a fall of about iV) to till foot per
mile ; soft clear water.
The town lias a population of 1WK)
inhabitants, kind hearted, and gen
erous peoplo. The Free Masons have
a splendid temple of their own and
the order is well represented, as
also is the Eastern Star. We had the
pleasure of visiting with thora and
will ever speak well of our hospitable
A I i 1 1 l!lu inali-in.
There are few discuses that inflict
more torture than rheumatism and
there is probably no disease for which
a varied and useless lot of remedies
have been suggested. To say that it
can tie cured is, therefore, a bold state
ment to make, but Chamberlain's I'ain
Ilalin, which enjoys an extensive sale,
lias met wilh great success in the
treatment cf this disease. One appli
cation of I'ain Halm will relieve the
pain and hundreds of -lufi'erers have
les'illed to permanent cures by its use.
Why sillier w hi n I'ain I'.alin affords
such ipiick relief and costs but a trifle?

Captain Jerome, an old-timer in

In the summer of lsl, Captain Je

BEGINS RATE WAR
Captain E. W. Spenoer has fired
the signal gun for the expected l'.Hi'i
rate war on the Columbia, says the
Telegram, with the annoneement
that, beginning on May 1, his steam
er, the Charles R. Spencer, would
make a round trip daily between
Portland and the Dalles, carrying
passengers for H each way. The
present fare is tl.bO.
Manager II. C. Campbell, of the
Regulator Line, when asked today if
he would follow the cut made by the
Dalles Transportation Company, said
he was not in a position to say,
being no longer interested in the
company, but merely a hired man.
He would not even sanction the state
ment that it was likely his employers
would meet the drop in passenger
Captain Spencer proposes to make
five landings between Portland and
the Wasco county terminus. These
will be Vancouver, Washougal, Stev
enson, Collins and Hood Kiver. He
believes his steamer can leave here
at 7 o'clock each morning and be
back again at 9 o'clock in the even
ing. Warning to Kickers.
St. Peter sits at the heavenly gates,
his hands on the strings of the lyre,
and sings long songs as he patiently
waits for the souls of those who ex
pire. He hears in the distance a song
that swells from the foot of the heav
enly throne, and smiles as the music is
wafted along and warbles a lay of his
own: "There is room in this region
for millions of souls who, by sorrow
and woe were bereft; 'tis for those
who have suffered the melody rolls,
but the kickers turn to the left.
There is room for the people who,
when they were young, persisted in
sowing wild oats, yet boomed up their
town with sinow and tongue, but the
kickers must go to the goats. There
is room for people who pointed with
pride to the beauty and growth of
their town, who kept singing their
praises aloud til they died, but the
kicker will please amble down. They'd
say their music was all nut of tune
and the angelic gown 'hand me down'
and send to the moon for a jeweler to
sample the gold in their crowns. So
while there is room for a million of
souls who, by sorrow and woe
were bereft, we want no complaints of
the music that rolls, so the kicker
must turn to the left. Fx.

Ditch Improvements at Mount Hood.
J. N. Knight, who was down from
Mount Hood Friday, reports the
farmers all busy there. The question
of irrigation water is agitating these
people as well as the fanners in other
parts of the valley. The Mount Hood
farmers own their own ditch, but they
have not sufficient work accomplished
to supply all the water the community
wonid make use of.
Some of the stock holders in the
ditch want those farmers who are
using the water to put up the money
for improvements,whilo there are oth
ers who believe it only just that an
assessment be levied upon all the stock
alike, whether the owner of the stock
is a water user or not. The improv
ements will increase the value of the
stock, which will result in benellts
Mr. Knight is sanguine the situation
will work out without any serious
difficulty and that all the farmers will
have all the water their farms need.
