(or the diminution of diversified in
dustries here but for the actual es
tablishment of creameries and dairieH
throughout the valley. There is a
lmt;o quantity of clover hay to be
carried over this season, bo with the
present and prospective acreage of
clover, the only profitable way out of
the present dilema is the building of
With the present Irrigation system
and the prolific returns from clover,
together with other climatic condi
tions, there is no spot in the North-
went that is better adapted for dairy
ing than is our valley. Why not call
a public meeting for the discussion of
this matter? Tne local development
league could engage in no bettor en
terprise for the upbuilding of our val
ley. The Willamette valley and coaHt
counties are coming to the front along
those lines, and our climate here
equals that of the coast counties.
With the best established market
upon the very liest berries and apples
that are grown, why not widen our
fume by placing upon the market a
high grade article of butter and
cheese? liy doing this the proplem of
a home market for all the clover that
can be raised is at once solved. When
this is done clover lands will be as
lurgely sought after as U apple land
Then, however, we must seek a mar
ket for our products along this line
other than a local market. At present
the home market is easily blocked.
Last Saturday a party from Odell took
a few rolls of butter to town and failed
to sell it. And this leads us to auk
whore that fellow Is that announced
to the publlo through the (ilacinr a
few weeks ago that he could sell 75
rolls of butter each day. (lood cream
ery butter and fresh cream cheese
finds a market always.
Last Sunday afternoon the lielmont
boys came over and played a game of

some very arbitrary rulings of the um

Death of Annie IMIuiian.
After an illness of ten days, Miss
Annie Dethman, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Chris Dethman, departed this
life last Wednesdy night, the 17th
Inst, and was laid to rest in the Pine
(irove cemetery on 1'rlday. The fun
eral services were conducted by the
Kev. Mr. Nelson of Hood Kiver. An
unusully large procession was formed
at the houso and the crowd was largely
increased at tho cemetery.
Miss Annie was 15 years and two
months old. Such a sudden taking
parties given in the' hall of the Odell!

ing to aid in this enterprise to the '

That Illg Da) at Odell.
That was promised did not materi
alize into wliHt was expected, nor half
what it would have been had the
weather been promising. Notwith
standing the exceedingly forbidding
weather, a few people wore present in
t ho forenoon and a large eiitbusiatsio
crowd was in attendance at the ball
game in tho afternoon to witness the

know the future would dim the star of
hope and without hope life would not
be worth the struggle.
The bereaved family share in fullest
measure the heartfelt sympathy of the
entire community. This fact was duly
attested by the large concourse of
friends who sorrowfully followed the
hear so to the last resting place of the
deceaesd. Annie leaves behind her
father and mother, five brothers and
two sisters, besides many schoolmates
and friends to mouru her loss.
Water at 85 an Inch.
Patrons of the Kast Fork Irrigating
Co. now have opportunity to get ten
year contracts at 5 per inch for the
season without regard to acrego. This
seems a reasonble proposition and we
think will meet with the approval of
the land owners of our neighborhood.
With a ten year's contract at a fixed
rate it puts us upon equal footing with
other irrigated sections and at once
places an increased value upon tho
lands under the ditch.whilo it becomes
an additional inducement to prospect
ive purchasers. We hope the matter
will lie speedily arranged along these
lines, which will prove in harmony
with a recent prophecy of the writer a
few weeks ago when the water ciuestion
assumed such an ugly phase: "All
things come to those who wait."
A much needed improvement at
Odell is that of a hitching rack for
the benefit of the parties who attend
of many a joko for getting beaten by
i ne town k ids. licit there are other
days and other games to follow.
Charles M. liusoy last week, sold ten
ucroH of his ) acre tract near Odell
for if 175 per ace and reserves the grow
iingi'op, which is equal to 10 per
acre. This consideration is satislao
tory to Mr. liusoy, and is a safe in
lestmont for the buer. It is a flatter
ing ad for our section. With water
covering this long neglected section,
Odell will now make rapid strides in
the way of development with its nat
ural advantages and seen la pictures.
There is no spot in all the valley that
presents greater attractions to the
lionieseoker than does Odell.

The park at tho Little White Store

lunching parties and you are welcome
to the use of it. With the smooth and
clean, its shade trees trimmed and its
