The lrrlifon Way.
Ono of the liest "ways" in Oregon
is the Hoo-i Kiver way. That town is
noted for producing the llnost fruit
in the world, the reputation of her
apples and strawberries being world
Hut there are other places in Oregon
producing as good apples as Hood
Kiver. At least we are told and be
lieve such to be the fact. Howevor,
placed on the market, in our eastern
cities or in Europe, side by side, the
Hood Hiver product will command the
Why is it? Well it Is simply a
question of organization. The Hood
River people believe in union and in
advertising. They stand together,
hand in hand aud shoulder to shoulder
for Hood River.
And they shout so loud, so persist
eutly and withal so intelligently that
a whole army of us are usually found
shouting with them.
"Nothing succeds like success.
We all know Hood River is a success
anil all of us are proud of it. Indeed
all Oregonians think they are intuitu!
to a share of the credit when Hood
Jiiver "gets there."
"The Hood River way" is a mighty
good way. And It is very a simple
very. It consists of burying personal
Jealousies and discords for the com
moil good, and all following the
leadership of their chosen captains
who are always endeavoring to make
Hood River known to the world, and

New York Sun.
There is growing up here in New
York a cult in the art of good eat ing.
There isji large and growing group
of New Yorkers who are not con
vinced bv the glittering and daz
zling table equipment, that the dinner
they are eating is a good dinner. As
to the price, that does not figure in
their calculations. It never did for
that matter, but now it is becoming
more and more insisted upon that the
price shall be felt in the food itself
rather than in the food accessories.
Hut for all the ilner touches in the
matter of food we are going abroad.
Of course there are the standard
American things, such as canvasback
ducks aud terrapin. Those are always
in demand and expensive.
It will take from ( to tH to buy a
pair of canvasback ducks, and only
two persons can be served from a sin
gle duck. And as for the terrapin,
they still hold their own at from 4Hi
to $80 and even now and then $120 a
Yet the greater part of those supplies
for the most expensive dishes con
sumed by the art feeders of New Yoii
come from abroad. The foreign
steamers, particularly the Fraud,
line, bring great quantities of very
lilgh priced articles of food to the
city every week. And very few of
these articles ever grit by New York,
The clubs get the lion s share of all
the liner and most expensive articles,
but the high-priced restaurants have
a steady, and, in the past four years,
a rapidly growing demand for these
products. The importation of poul
ardes du Mans, canards de rouen and
the most expensive European fruits
has grown steadily of late and has be
come no inconsiderable item in New
York's bill of fare.
A poulards du Mans, or fat hen of
Le Mans, is a bird, which, liko the
Strausberg goose, spends the last
throe or four months of her life in a
box which barely permits her to move,
Her only consolation during this sea
son of retirement is that she has 11 in
itloss quantit ies of all the varieties of
food she likes best and which are
most calculated to make her flesh
w1 ite and tender and saturated witl
fat. Six dollars apiece is about what
the poulads oost, and some of them
weigh almost as much as a small tur
key. The Rouen ducks are also extreme
ly popular here iu New York and an
being Imported In rapidly increasing
numbers. They aro particularly fat
and Under and they cost jiiHt about
the same as the poulards, sometime
running up as high as $7 for a par

Of the absurdly expensive foreign
fruits that are consumed in New York
none is more popular than tho Caville
apples. They are grown in Normandy
near Tureunealso, and sell here in
New York for 75 cents to 1 apiece.
Even in France at certain seasons o:
the year, they bring 40 and 4;" cents
apiece, while at Monte Carlo they not
Infrequently touch ffl apiece.
They are grown with infinite care
and pains against garden walls, each
apple being treated as a work of art,
for each apple bears a picture lit its
thin, delicate skin that is etched out
by the rays of the sun.
You may have any picture you want
on your Caville apple if you notify
the grower in advance. The pioturo is
made by putting tissue paper over
the growing apple, In tho tissue paper
tho pictorial design is cut out, and
the sun does the rest.
The Calvillos are a greenish apple
in tint aud are remarkably juicy and
delicate in tlavor, Tho Dutchess
pears, also from France, are imported
in groat numbers, aud they, too, sell
at 75 ceuts a piece.
There has of late been a great do
maud for Belgian asparagus, and a
great deal of it is brought in, It
sells at from 7 to 8 a bunch.
In the list) line, solo from 1' ranee
comes in a great deal. A sole costs
about 2, aud a restaurant portion
is sold for 1.50. As for Russian
caviar.lt Is very ditllcult to get. It
costs fli a pound. French quail,

can quail, aro imported in consider
able numbers. They sell at from if l.2f
