BERRIES AT ODELL
By RohwoII Shelley.
Odell, Kuat Hood Kiver Valley,
June 6. Strawberry piekerH are in
evidence here hh never before. All
diiy lnnt Stminltiy there was a Htrintf
of people patwinM Udell, many of them
on thoir way to the Willow Flitttitrow
lierry fleldH. There aro aproximately
lW) pickers on Willow Flat, more than
1U of whom are in the 40-acre tract
of II. F. DavidHon. And why thiw
lare pay roll there? Mecauiw) for
three years past money has lieon liber
ally spent in that section and it is
ju-t now beKiniiiiiR to tell. A good
payroll is what makes a country and
the employees are not the only ones
that are making money.
The following parties about Odell

These are busy, busy days with the
spraying and cultivating of orchards,
the thinning of apples, planting of
potatoes and last but not least the
picking of berries. There are no

The ditch work on the Dead Point
Irrigating works is about complete.
Odell has furnished quite a lot of the
labor upon the ditch.
Last Saturday, the writer, in search
of a horse, climbed to the summit of
the range between Mill creek and Hock
crook, starting upward at Bob Robin
son's place. He failed to find the
hores, but at dilforent points along
the zig zag climb, us he paused to
rest, looking westward, there was
a spread out before the vision most
enchanting picture. Almost beneath
our feet and spreading westward was
a bit of landscape go bewitching that
it would be a trave.-ty upon nature for
an ordinary writer like the Odell cor
respondent to attempt a detailed de
scription of it. The indescribably
beautiful, peaceful and apparently
sleeping valley, dotted here and there
with green fields a.ml gray orchards
shaded with hundreds of green leafy
apple trees, then stretches of ever
green, through which the silver
threaded streams wound their way
from the stately white robed sentinel,
Mount Hood, emptying thoir life
giving waters into the grand Coluin
bia,then outward and westward toward
the sea. The hundreds of modern,
prosperous homes rounding up the
picture caused a feeling of wonder and
admiration through and through us,
akin to reverence. Winding our way
homeward without the horse, we felt
amply paid for the trip. .Moral: Let
us get up on the bilh ocashionally,
awB.y from the fogs i(ud mists tif the
valloy to a point where we can see both
sides of life.
The valley In the Pine drove neigh
borhood is in prime condition, being
cultivated almost to a state of perfec
tion. The full leafed, vigorous young
apple orchards, of which there are
many, aro refreshing pictures, and
while the revenue feature is the
nronipting feature along this line, yet
they are ornamental as well as possess
