Exposition Grounds, Portland, Or.,
Juue 3. Editor Glacier: The Wasco
county booth at the Lewis and Clark
frtir was not completed so we could
put anything into it until 3 p. in. on
the afternoon of May 31 (and was not
nuixhed then). r'roui that time until
11.30 p. in. we woikod installing the
exhibit, and from what the visitors
nuy we are in a fair way to be in it
for the bet county exhibit at the fair.
1-itit me say now, if the people of
Wasco county who can make it possi
ble for us to carry away the prize
could see the ett'orU made by other
counties to show the best they have,
would help us with what they can pro
duce, we will put it before the visit
ors in such a way as to make Wasoo
the banner county of Oregon.
Our apples, i-trawberriea and cherries
are so far the best in the horticultural
display for Oregon. The state of
Washington is close onto us in theap
plo display, and outside of Newtowus
and Spit.oubergs will be a close com
petitor. Our wool and grain is good,
though e have made no pretentions
toward a sheaf or unthresbed grain
dislay, as we hud no room, and no
grains saved and prepared for such a
display. Wo have a line wool case
tilled with different grades of wool,
I )i th scoured and timcjured, sur
mounted with ram of natural size.
We have some fine pictures of Wasoo
county scenery, which attract a deal of
attention. Vo ;rs truly,
The apple crop in parts of Allssouri
and Arkansas w ill be light this year,
writes 1I.T. Willia.i s in a letter to Tom
liifhop. Counties which produce a
million dollar crop v. hen the s-eason
is good, w ill this year have about one
fourth of a crop.
Mr. WiU'ams has put o npleted set
ting S(H0 apl) trees which he says
are doing nicely. Ho hopes to soon
return to Hood Kiver to look after j
his apple land hero.
"When it comes to raising fine!
fruits," rays
nothing like
Wo have fruit hole earlier, but Hood
Hirer is larger and better in appear
ance, though 1 think fruit hero is
sweeter. Our seacous here nro not so
reliable as Hood Kiver. V o will miss
two mwoiih out of five most of the
time. Tim cool spring this season
chilled the Mooir.s and they fell off
so did the fruit.
"Tlio two eristics adjoining me on
the unrtliwe.-t tueh raise a million dol
lars worth of upples a year, when they
have a crop. 'II is year the blossoms
wore full and prospects good for a line
crop, but there Cairo cool winds and
blossoms fell ai:l tho fruit that did
set has fallen to badly that there is
little hot e for even one-fourth of a
crop. So this will make two years
that section lias pasted without a crop
of apples.
"My attention was turned to Hood
liiver, mostly because of its reliability
in having its crops of fruits. This
placed it ahead of Eastern fruit sec
tions. We have had ripo cherries More
week but not large like those at Hood
Kiver. 1 doubt it there is any por
tion of tho L'uitad Ktntes will raise as
large cherries as Oregon or as line
"Tho strawbrerv season has been
disasterous all over the south. Too
much rain. The fruit all went to mar
kot wet and spoiled. llesides the
companies were not prepared for so
big a ci on and did not have cars
enough. Crates full of strawberries
were left at the depot in some cases
that were bigger in quantity than the
depot itself.
"At Chadbourne. N. C, tho loss of
the growers was f.UW, UP.0 from failure
of the car companies to carry the fruit
to market. ISenio-" that did go arriv
ed so poor that U:e health authorities
ordered the curs cent to tho dump and
often Ji cars a day were dumped. One
station north of hire, Sarcoxie, Mo.,
ships 'M) curs of the strawberries a
your and has ph nty of cars but tho
season there is to will bo dilil
cult for growers to make any money.
Usually, h n ever, '!oy net 81. fill to fc!

last ei.i tiiev avenged f- net.
Tliia CLanlrv is getting to be won
derful for it., consumption of fruit.
No one Ki.o'as Low much tho people
really do u.-.o. The markets call for
such great quiuitiies. Think of New
York using 30 cars of l'ermndu onions
a day, or one station shipping 300 cars
of berries in a season.
"There are enough peaches this year
in Texas and Georgia to 1111 f,000 cars,
and this is but half a crop. When
Ciooilga lias u full crop there uro not
enough cars to curry it to market.
Tho great trouble w it n the fruit from
the I'ttcillc coast is the longili of timo
for fruit to reach the Eastern markets.
This sets back fruit growing there
wonderfully. It should not take so
Hood River, Or., June 0. Editor
Glacier : It appears to the writer that
the commercial club of Hood River
oould exert itself in no better way than
encouraging some one to locate a
creamery here.
With a steam railroad soon to lead
Into Hood River from the upper valley
down through the East Side ; the West
Side lauds all lying contiguous to the
town and with the splendid dairy
farms stretching either way along the
Columbia for many miles, it hardly
seems possible that a more favorable
location for a creamery remains va
cant in the entire northwest.
No doubt the reason for the vacancy
is the fact that most of the energy and
enthusiasm of both farmers and town
people have heretofore been centered
on our famous fruits, but since irri
gating water has become plontiful and
large acreages of land have been sown
to clover and alfalfa the need of a
creamery cannot well be longer ig
nored. From this time on clover and
alfalfa cannot be couuted on as profit
able crops unless consumed by dairy
cattle on the farms where they are
grown. Ranch butter for numerous
palpable reasons is seldom profitable
to the markets or satisfactory to con
sumers, to say nothing of the immense
amount of labor required to manufac
ture it on the farm, which alone deters
most farmers from engaging in tho
business extensively. A creamery can
hardly be expected to do a large busi
ness here at the start, but when it is
established, dairying will be sure to
increase at a rapid rate.
Instead of farmers hesitating to sow
more clover and alfalfa it is safe to
predict that the acreage throughout
the valley will soon increase many
fold, and that every ton of hay will
be worth more to the grower than ever
before, to say nothing of the fertility
that will be retained on the farm.
Dairying and fruit raising should go
hand in hand and if dull times and
crop failures ever come tbey will be
sure to rest more heavily on the roan
who has every acre of his land set to
Let us diversify and at Hood River
let the 'creamery be located. The
cream checks that will then be cashed
in our banks will bring more prosper
ity to us all than would come from a

Mr. Williams, "there is i SHVRrui woolen mills. And further
Hood Kiver tor beauty. : more. while this topic is under discus
sion would it not look well if the farm
ers would come forward and give the
commercial club substantial aid in
this matter. Several subscription pa
pers have licon in the hands of solic
itors for some time with a view to
raising funds for just such a purpose,
but nearly every farmer approached
has turned them down good and hard.
The independent farmer nowadays is
prone to do his buying in the cheapest
market, even if bis local merchant is
loft out in the cold, and for this rea
son he should still further show his
independence by bearing a share in all
that is expended for the public good.

Heavy Storms Lant Week.
Frcftk electrical stormH occurred lust
week in many purls of Kastern Oreiron.
The worst ttorni was a cloudburst on
Uliea creek about 1(1 miles south of
lleiner lust Tuesday afternoon, in
which Jlra. J. K. Mun'einaker and I er
yoniiest child and two children of a
neighbor, A. H. Cox, were drowned.
Wednesday afternoon, the day of
heavy rain iii thin city, there occurred a
i-torin at Condon, where hailstones large
ns chcrric- battered windows in nearly
every store and house in town. Holes
were even made in currugnlcd iron
roofs, so fierce was the effect oftlie hail,
(irain was flattened. This occurred
about fio'clock.
At Shaniko the same afternoon, hail
stones broke the skylight in the Moody
Antelope telle of an electric fracas out
that way, when, though the switch
board, the building wherein the 1'acilic
Stated telephone olhce is located was
set on fire. It was, however, distin
guished witliour damage. Fifteen of
their telephone poles helween Antelope
and Shaniko also suffered from the
lightning's pranks.
Inllool Kiver rain poured down in
torrents, and the streets were flooded in
three minutes as if by an ell-day down
pour. The storm occurred about 3
o clock, and was preceeileil uv iiiuimcr.

Making Trail Around Mount Hood.
"We have just finished building a trail
along Surveyors lid o to lirooks' mea
dow and are now working across to
Cloud Cap Inn, not a "blazed line" but
n trail eight feet wide with all obstruc
tions removed," reuiaiked Ranger An
derson in The Dalles last week. "People
can now- go from The Dalles to the Jim
in a day and enjoy the most magnificent
mountain view this coast affords. I
would like to describe the scenery but I
can't. There is nothing 1 know to com
pare with it. Yosciuite valley, seen for
.he first tune, comes in arest to putting

ihiills but once and then becomes a
gigantic crack in the rock. It looks to
me that once known to the public this
would la-come a (union mountain resort.
