HOOD KIVER GLACIER, THUhdDAY, JUNE 1, 1905
IN UPPER VALLEY
By Roawoll Shelley.
Odell, East Hood River Valley, May
30 The mecca of our lastt observation
trip through the country wai the
Mount Hood bridge, on the Cloud
Cup Inn road. The day wag an ideal
one. All Nature, cloned with frenh
neHg and beauty, extended her glad
Lunch over, we seated ourselves
upon the ereeu trans-plot beneath
spreading oaks and lulled by the
mimic of the restless river, together
with the noise of the faithful borse
as he bit the tender bludes of grass,
or switch the flies, we quite forgot
ourselves for the moment, and as we
peered above us through the green
leafy trees into the matchless sky
above, the dreamland thought came
to us. But the reality is good enough.
We are glad it Is not a dream.
The fragrance of the flowers and
the rippling of the water Is like the
laughter of children, and we wander
buck through memory's lane to the
dear old haunts of childhood. Oht
those preoious days that were free
from guile, when life was one glad
gong. While those days will never
come back to us, yet 'tis comforting
to know that gome hearts never grow
old, and although the bair is grey and
the step becomes feeble, yet if we do
not resits it, there will always 1 a
ruspousive chord in the heart that is
touched and quickened by these
tempting baths in nature, that if
followed leads us into the mysteries of
the forest and away from the things
that so vex and annoy us in the thick
est of the battle of life. Applying
this to life, may we not Anally march
valiantly across the buttle field of life
and then reach the plain of victory?
Almost a year had elapsed since we
bad been in the Mount Hood section,
and in many places along the road
we note substantial improvements, as
well as the development of laud.
You will see on tho grounds but one stylo of soda foun
tainthe new Twentieth Century. This fountain 1ms
been adopted to be used exclusive of all others be
eause of its perfect protection to health.
By coming fnto our store you can see one of the sarin?
style fountains the only perfectly sanitary ones in use.
When tired and thirsty make our store and ice cream
parlor your headquarters for a quiet rest and enjoy a
cool, refreshing drink, or try our sodas made from Town
send's White Clover Ice Cream combined with our
Twentieth Century Pure Fruit Flavors.
At the same time if you will give us your drug orders,
while you are enjoying your sodas, your medicines will be
prepared for you in a reliable and up-to-date manner.
Who has had over forty years
experience in Iowa is opening
Notably among these are tho follow
ing: Mr. Dumas, who has built a
modern house and substantial barn,
and leased the old improvements and
land to V. V. Willis. Mr. Bush, who
has a part of the Fredenborg place,
has shown his faith in that section
by clearing, improving and planting
to trees and berries quite a tract.
He has made a wonderful improve
ment in the appearance of the place
since moving thore. Dr. Shaw, with
his log cottage, with shingle gables
and dormer windows, and a fine
young orchard, which is planted to
berries, has one of the nicest places
along the line. The premises are neat
and well kept, while the plan of the
house is novel and picturesque. Dr.
Shaw's enterprise is worthy of im
itation. Mr. Ijarwood has cleared
the timber in front of his house,
which looks cozy and homelike.
With an electric line looping the
valley and covering the Mount Hood
country, that portion of the valley
will develop rapidly and laud will
double in value. Hood Kiver valley
is surely destined to be a vallfty of
independent homes that will soon bo

We found the roads smooth and
nice all the way to the bridge, which
is the result of good work on the part
of road suprviuor, Juke Lenz. The
work done last year tells now, for it
did not require the work this season
that was done lat year. A good road
supervisor should be retaiud in
definitely, for good roads are a good
advertiser for any community.
Last week the score of 1 to 11 in
favor of the Bulldogs, as publiuned
in the Ulacier, should have read 10
to 11. Please give Odell 9 more.
They neod them this season.
The Odell brothers, R. S. Shelley
and William and Dane Kemp are all
at work for the Dead Point Develop
ment Co. A large spring is being
tapped there that will lead water over
u,i ute au area of good land, which will
be reclaimed anil prove valuable.
Strawberry picking about Odell is
just begiuuing, and by the end of the
week tliis section and Willow Flut
will be alive with pickors. The pros

advent of the water will prove a red
letter day for this neighborhood.
Clare Crocket left lust Saturday
for Shanico. He will probably spend
the summer there.
The reul estate department of the
Little White Store offers one of the
best bargains in the valley on an 80
acre tract of land eleven miles out,
abutting on the Mount Hood road,
it has ) trees, part bearing this sea
son ; line meadow and good improve
ments. Part of the land is under the
ditch. Small rash payment; balance
easy terms. It will actually pay you
to fall down over some one to get
to this bargain first.
C. U. Bono is a busy niau these
days. He seems to hold the key to
the situutiou on the Kust sido, for
when he presses the button that turns
ou the water the land produces.
Last Sunday being pleasant brought
many people on the pike, going to and
returning from the fads and up and
down the Mount Hood road. The
fine condition of the roads at presont
is an inducement for people to take a
Dr. Johnson, an old friend of Dan
Smith, is here from Illinois. He is
much pleased with our valley and in
tends buying land for his son, who
will move out here. In this vicinity
land is cheap compared with the
hind more favorably situated near
town. There is plenty of good apple
hind south and west of Odell which
can be bought for $25 and up, and
not fur from Odell, the hub of East
Hood Kiver valley.
It will pay strangers to look this
way before purchasing.
Tho systematic and thorough devel
opment work at Willow Flat during
the past throe years is now speaking
for itself. The hot air period has
passed. On the Flut and in this sec
tion more than 100 acres of potatoes
have planted m the young orchards,
and it is now up to us to seek a spud
market outside the valley.
The Little White Store has two or
three tons of hay for sale. They also
have nut 1 1 ml ice for sale, made from
pure spring water. This ice is de-!

Horse trading is again in order.
Last week John Kroeger, Jas. English
and J. W. McDonald were all doing
business along that line. The railroad
graders furnished the I orses to start
the bail rolling, and Bob Kobinson
interested McDonald in the business.
There is nothing like the horse trad
ing business, for luvauabjy eacn

Hairy Kemp, the village black
smith, and expert trout catcher,
in company with O. M. DeWitt
and family, spent lust Saturday
on tho river about the falls, en
tertaining the finny tribe. Mr. De
Witt resides on the bill east of Mill
creek. He is an ex-soldier, having
been in the Philadelphia service. They
enjoyed the day immensely. This
was the initial trip of many a pleas
ant outing during the season.
W. W. Jackson, who recently pur
chased 80 acres of land from Harry
Kemp, was up from Portland Sunday
and made arrangements to have a lot
of slashing done. His peoplo.who live

makes price of hay
Willow Flut. &ast Hood Kiver valley.
May IK). There seems to lie a rising
demand for a creamery here because it
has been asserted that 400 tons of do
ver hay will be carried over to another
season. Estimating l.i bales to the ton
we have 5-.iU0 bales, or at a liberal esti
mate we might say about one bule for
each head of cattle mid horses in the
vulloy. So why all this unnecessary
noise about so eihhII a mutter?
We have been informed that there
has been over 4U0 tons of hay shipped
into the valley in the face of the fuct
that our farmers still have 100 tons on
hand. The only reason that we can
see for this hay being carried over, is
the failure by the farmers to appreci
ate the fact, other things being equal,
that the price of such things is regu
lated by the law of supply and de
mand. Dame Rumor is the authority for
the statement that the Hood Kiver
Orchard Co. have disposed of 20 acres
of thnir new orchard for ?.'W0 per acre.
If this be true, the promoters of the
company have realized from 10 to 75
por cent profit In nine mouths on their
investment, or about oAo 15 per cent
a month. There hrnurely no part of
Hood Kiver that olfers such induce
ments to investors as Willow Flat.
The lust issue of the (ilacier reported
that C. M. ISusey of Odell had sold
part of his ranch at $175 an acre, and
had also reserved this season's crop.
Odell is all right, put when its clay
lauds commund such prices, there Is
no just cause why the hind in the Flut
other things being equal, should not
command to &150 per ucre. If

J. II. Shoemaker informs us thut
they expect to have a survey on the
ground June (1, to establish the route
of the irrigation ditch for their newly
organized district. Those people are
to he congratulated on their success
thus fur, mid fur their determinution
to own und control their own irrigut
Ing system. They certainly have
solved the water question in tho most
pructicul maiinnr possible.
The Kant Fork Irrigating Co. have
been experiencing cousidoraiilo ti ouble
by the depredations, of the gophers
along the ditch banks. A number of
breaks have receutly occurred, but so
fur we us have leurued no serious dum
ago bus yet resulted.
Berry (licking commenced here Mon
day, the warm days of lust week ripen
ing the berries very fust. The berries
that go into tho market from this part
of the valley will bo llrst class and
surely ought to command a good price
as we have seen no tiner berires in
Hood liivor valley.
Some Holds of clover are commenc
ing to bloom und ere long we will hear
the ruttle of the mowing machine and
hay harvest will lie on our hands
again. There will lie a larger acreage
of hay cut this year in Dukes vallej
thnu ever before. There ure still a
good many tons of last year's'hay to
o disposed or yet. Three vears turo
there was uot enough hay raised in
the valley to winter a good spun of

stock outside of our own valley.
