HOOD RIVER BERRIES LEAD ALL
K. A. I'ranz Keturns Cunvlnrril There
Is So l'lace L!ln Home Talk
(Mi Fruit Situation.
After a trip through the principal
cities of Kastern Oregon, Washington,
Idaho and Montana, K. A. Franz re
turned more fiiinlv convinced than ever
that Hood River is the lieat section of
the l'acjtie northwest. "1 was glad to
see the green trees and waving grass as
we came into sight of Mosier. It was
the first glimpse of green fields for
weens," sunt Mr. Franz.
While on his trip, Mr. Fran looked
carefully for any place where he thought
ho could find something better than
Hood Kiver, but returns satisfied that
the opportunities at home are not
eitiallel elsewhere. While Fast of here,
.Mr. I'ranz also interested Ii i in' elf in the
berry markets, lie came home with
more orders for early her'ies than It will
be possible for him "l . li I tho first few
weeks of I' e .-hiipiii e.i- n.
The denim. d fir liei-i increases each
year wheroer Hood 11 w r berries get a
foothold, and with proper distribitlion
of this season's croii, Mr. Franz believes
the outlook for p ices is extremely
good, llonil Hiver strawberries are still
in the lend hc-iiuse of the superior
ipiality of the fr i t an I ihecnein which
the berries are pule I tor the market.
If the lb od I! ei- iar. ners continue to
make nual tv the r motto when shinning
strawberries, Mr I'rinz believes success
will continue to lie l heir-.
"A good many o hei sections are going
into the herrv bii-i.iess or are raising
h rt ie8 now," remarked Mr. Franz, "but
t e-y are h ginning to realize from year
to year that they cannot raise berries as
go. id as we cun in Hood liiver. One had
I. :ituio of the heny business in the
niethwcs! in the last two or three years
I- the mmitier in which all sections
loive secured plants from Hood River
cdeavor to put the berries on the mar
ket as tho Hood liivvr oerites.
"If we can do something to prevent
this it will he a great thing for Hood
Kiver, because berries grown elsewhere,
even though the plants were secured
here are so much poorer than the real
Hood Kiver berries that people who are
not acipiainted with Iho real article will
become dissatisfied and would want no
mo.-e to do with the Hood Kiver berries.
'Wherever I went, I tried to explain
as much as possible just w hat the other
ncalittcs are doing in this matter, in
order to prevent the dealers and buyers
ti'oui Doing huiiihugged in the lutiire.
1 here is one thing the Hood River
farmers must bear in mind this year,
if they expect to obtain higher prices
for their berries and to push out other
berries from our market, they must put
up a strictly lirst class pack. Quality,
quality, two times ipiality must be their
watch word. Hood liiver can down the
other fellowH as their . errics lack the
size and flavor and will not stand long
distance shipments, hut to do this our
berries must in all instances set the high
'This is a serioiiH matter and the
farmers cannot ignore it. The union
will maintain a rigid inspection of all
fruit sent out with the union brand, and
will do all in its power to win the battle
for Howl liiver berries. A big gain was
made hist year, and the good work will
be continued this season.
'The farmers in other sections of the
northwest have not made as much as
they thought they would, uud conse
quently they have neglected their
patches. This should work to the ad
vanage of the growers here, especially
those who have taken extra good care to
p oduce fine herries. If the fanners of
Hood Kiver keep up their quality and
acreage, these other sections will soon
lie out of the business all together, be
cause they cannot compete with our
good berries and cannot make anything
selling poor berries.
"Strawberries should he. put onto the
market as soon as after picking as possi

and no matter w here they are stored be
fore they are shipped, the sooner they
get into the hands of the consumer, the
better satisfied he will be and the more
satisfuctor) it will lie to the grower. As
soon as picked and packed, berries
should be liroiight to the shipping sta

cars. The union has decided this year
that all packing shall be done in the
packing house and rot by the pickers in
the patch as heretofore.
"There is another thing I learned of

would have a big advantage.

HOOD RIVER'S GROWTH
"To tho person visiting Hood River
valley at the present time, and who in
former years was acquainted with the
place, the growth is phenoneiial and
very wonderful," remarked Hon. John
Mitchell of The Halles, after a drive
through Hie valley with Leslie ISutler,
president of Hutler & Co'a. bank.
"The valley has always had the repu
tation of being the most desirable slim
mer resort in Oregon," continued Mr.
Mitchell, ' but during the last few years
it has forged forward in industrial de
velopment to an extent that has sur
prised even its most sanguine admirers..
"For a distance of fifteen to seventeen
miles, lands have been planted in fruit
orchards, the output of which has been
something like a page from the Arabim
Nights; yet every statement made, that
seems exaggerated, is backed bv fuels
and figures which cannot he disputed.
"The substantial growth of the town in
substantial structures bespeakes the de
velopment of natural resources. Fruit
and lumber have la-en the factors that
have brought this about, and the im
provements in the future will he as
marked as (hose In the past.
"With a fall of 75 feet to the mile for
twelve miles, Hood River furnishes
water power sufliclent to turn the wheels
of the manufacturers of the state; the
virgin lorcst that will furnish an un
limited supply for generations vet to
come, and the acreage of lands thiit will
lie devoted lo fruit culture are the great
incentives to business enterprise and
coin, iiurc.ial c.iiiiidetico in the Intuie of a
town that has hardly left lis cradle.
When fullv matured, its growth will be
astonishing as that of any city in the
The Hood Klver Way.

feet to tell something about Irtigon;
and we determined we would say noth

we had scarcely said a dozen words until
we launched off into a panegyric alsnit
the Hood Kiver wav.
A few ininuils later a gentleman from
The Dalles got up to tell us about the
beauties and resources of li s town, and
he was so carried away that he said
" The Dalles is in Hood River county."
