HOOD RIVER GLACIER, THUfcdDAY, JUNE 22, 1905
That E. II. Harriniaii, who in now
able to turn bis attention to Oregon
since the closing of the Northern Se
curities oases and the settlement of
the question of connections in the
Snake River country with James J.
Hill, is about to build more lines in
this state, is the opinion held by
members of the transportation com
mittee of the Chamber of Commerce,
who have been apprized unofficially
recently that Mr. Hiirrlnmii intends to
provide facilities which the Chamber
of Commerce baa long striven to se
cure. The extension of the Columbia
Southern 1b said to be the aim of Mr.
Harriman now. On the occasion of
bis last visit to Portland the Chamber
of Commerce representatives asked
him point blank to build beyond Shan
iko, says the Evening Telegram, and,
while no definite reply was given at
that time, the encouragement offered
throught the railroad magnate's atti
tude led to correspondence on the
subject, with the result that a direct
reply is looked for in the near future.
Meanwhile news has been carried
from the Kast that Mr. Harriman has
about concluded to respond to the ear
nest petitions of the residents of Ore
gon for means whereby the interior of
the state will be developed.
While the fact has been generally
known that the engineers and survey
ors in the employ of the Uould inter
exta have been in Oregon for some
weeks and were looking about with a
view to choosing a route for the new
Western Pacifin, it is thought that the
strenuous efforts of the Chamber of
Commerce to bring about the desired
end has had more to do with the deci
sion of Mr. Harriman to build than
the fear of competition from the West
ern Pacific, inasmuch as be is already
on the ground with two trunk lines
and would be in a position to con
trol the bulk of the business. Prme
ville and llend have long desired rail
connections with the main line, and
it may mean this new activity of Mr.
Harriman will end in these routes be
ing covered. Another factor in evi
deuce which unquestionably actuated
the plans for construction there Is the
promotion of au eleotrio Hue from The
Dulles to Prineville.
Makes Fortune In Oregon Lumber.
Pendleton Kast Oregonian.
William Eccles, president of the
Hood River Lumber company, 'vice
president of the Humpter Valley rail
way and stockholder in several other
Oregon properties, passed down the
O. It. & N. yesterday evening from
Ogden to Hood River, here he goes to
spend the summer in the beautiful
Hood River district, lie was acooin
pauied by his family, wbloh lives in
Ogden during the winter season.
I he career of William Eccles In
eastern Oregon iuspirea poor boys to
persevere and work faithfully at their
chosen calling whatever it may be. so
long as it Is legitimate and profitable,
Eccles came to Union county a poor
man in 1HMH, bought an old sawmill
plant on Catherine creek and began
grinding out lumber, going in debt
for bis supplies and borrowing money
to pay off his employes, at first. He
continued at It until now be is worth
any where from 2),0UO to :tOO,(XX)
and is making more money easily and
He is now building a 17-mile rail
road from Hood River toward Mount
Hood to reach a timber belt and to
tap the rich Hood River valley, and
owns an elegant home in Ogden and
one in Hood River, and la a large
stockholder in the Oregon .Lumber
company at linker City.
Mr. Eccles sawed the first Lumber
ever shipped to the Mormon colony
into Bouora, Mexico, in 1HH!). from
Tulocaset, Or., and established lum
ber shipping points at Telooaset, Pleas
ant Valley, Union and North Powder
in eastern Oregon. He is one of the
leading sawmill men of the state and
has made a success of his business by
close application and hard work.
Hay Much Cheaper Thin Year.
J. O. Cameron of Dukes Valley, who
was in the city Thursday, accompan
ied by bis sou Jack, is harvesting a
tine crop of timothy and clover hay.
Mr. Cameron says he will have about
M tons of hay this summer. Railed
clover and timothy is now worth 1 13 a
ton. This time last year he says be
could sell just such hay for $17 a ton,
and some even went at 120.
Mr. Cameron expects hay to gut even
cheaper than this before the end of
the season. As more bay is produced
In the valley, Mr. Cameron expects to
see it get cheaper, which will induce
the establishment of a creamery here
when there is a sufficient number of
cows in the valley to justify such an
industry here. Others, too, believe
it will not be long before some one
cau be induced to see that there
would be money for a creamery in
('nines Here From Kansas.
W. W. Ross and family are recent
arrivals from Kansas. They have
rented the Kami cottage opposite the
Park-street school house. Mr. Ross
is looking for a small farm whore he
cau raise chickens aud keep a half
dozen cows. He thinks later of tak
ing up a homestead.
Hood River people are complaining
about the wind blowing bard the past
week, but Mr. Ross says this is a very
mild wind for one from Kansas. Hut
a few days before he left that state, a
storm came up which played havoc
with frame buildings and store win
dows about liis town. Rain came
down in such quantities that one
could not see 15 feet before hi in. Cy
clones are too much for Mr. Hoi's and
he expects to remain in Hood River.
He is a brother of W. J. Ross.

U. S. soldier who served in Cuba
during the Spanish war know what
this disease Is, and that ordinary reinl

most as severe and dangerous as a mild

however, that can always tie depended
upon as will be seen by the following
certificate from Mrs. Minnie Jacobs of
Houston, Texas: I hereby certify that
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Di

At the farmers' institute, held at Mil
waukie, Oregon, June 2, under the aus
pices of the Milwaukie Grange, Dr.
James Withycombe, director of the Or
egon Experiment Station, spoke on the
above subject, substantially as follows:
"There is no agricultural section in
the world more favored by natural en
dowment for intensive agriculture than
is our own fair state; also, there is not
a section of our state better situated for
intensive husbandry than here. Your
farms are located at the threshold of
the metropolis of the Northwest. There
is no reason why the farmers of this
section should nut be prosperous. Nor
is there any reason why agriculture
should not be a profitable and
pleasurable vocation. Surely by poten
tially of our soil and climate, when
properly understood, will curpuss tie
expectations of the most sanguine.
"As an example of what can lie done
in the line of producing green feed for
dairy cows, results obtained at the ex
periment station this spring will be
"We began cutting on April 3,an acre
of rye and vetch, sown October 18, 1004;
finished cutting on April 18; yield per
acre of green feed, 12,325 pounds.
Began cutting second crop on May 23;
finished May 30; yield 11,105 pounds
Thus this acre sf vetch and rye has
yielded this spring 11.75 tons of green
feed and there is a good proepect of a
third crop. Regan cutting two-acre
field of alfalfa April 19. and finished
cutting May 23; yield of two acres 20
tons and eight pounds of green feed.
Thus three acres have produced 31.70
tons of green feud already this sprint:
and with a good prospect ol cutting two
or three more crops of alfalfa this sea
son : or, in other words, three acres ol
land have furnished the principal feed
for fifteen bead of grown cattle and four
ix-mofiths-old calves from April 3 to
"This is what is known as the noiling
system and plainly illustrates the posi
bility of small farms when intelligently
utilized. These crops are produced
under ordinary farm conditions and
without any artificial fertilizers.
Cheer Sparrow's First Flight.
"One touch of nature makes the
whole world kin," and this was never
better Illustrated than yesterday when
busy people were baited on a promi
nent street corner to watch a mother
sparrow teaching her young fledgling
how to make bis first night. She en
couraged the little bird to hop over
the edge of a ledge some distance
above the street, but his untried wings
would not sustain him in the ether
and be fell struggling to the top of an
awning some feet below. There he
struggled to rise into the air and the
mother bird encouraged him to do bis
utmost ,to sail back up to the ledge,
hut be seemed unable to do so.
Then it was that a crowd collected
aud the sympathies of the nondesrclpt
audience were all with the mother.
Finally the little bird fell to the at eet
but was caught by a friendly onlooker
before he fell to the pavement. The
mother followed ber young to the road
and settled within a foot of the man
holding the fledgling, uttering all the
time cries of alarm. Finally she sailed
back on the ledge sounding notes of
enoouragemeiit to the little bird to
come back to the starting pinnt. It
was a question with the crowd below
how to get the bird back to the ledge
and suggestions were freely offered.
Finally the man helping it gave it a
toss up toward the ledge, where the

Might Is Ruining the Pears.
Horace W. Day of the firm of Day A
Sgobel, reached New York the first
week in June after an extended trip to
llie coast. Air. imv succeeded in in us
up a good dual of business for his firm.
Concerning conditions in California Mr.
Day Is quoted as follows:
Unless some means are found which
will check the bludit which is attacking
the liartlutt pears in California the en
tire crop in a few years will be ruined.
The State Agricultural Department has
been extieriiiientinir viuorouslv of ate
to find something w hich will not neces-
date the cutting down of the orchards
which are affected bvl the bliitht. As
yet no remedy lias been discovered.
hole orchards are ellucted. The
blight first shows itself by shriveling
the leaves of a branch and then extend
ing through a tree. The only wav to
chuck the spreading is to burn the af
fected branchd. Means must lie found
to check the spread of the hliiiht or the
output of the State will lie cut down.
'The early peach crop of the State
will be small this year, while that of
the other varieties will lie very good.
rrunesare a medium crop, while the
pears will be a little over one-third of
an avnrago yield. Cherries were hurt
tiy rains and this caused the very small
crop. 1 found that the crops of the Sil
ver, ilungurian and Italian prunes In
Idaho, Oregon and Washington will tie
about a third of the average yield. The
peach crop of Colorado w ill not lie a
fifth of an average, but the apples there
win lie tine.
