HOGD RIVER GLACIER, THUKSDAY, JULY 20, 1905
ODELL MAN AT THE
By RoHwell Shelley.
Exposition Urouuds, Portland, Or.,
July 18. The red-roofed city, with
1U white pillared building and its
Kmy boulevards bordered with green
Ltwna and studded with statuary and
an endless variety of fragrant and
beautiful flowers defying the most
gorgeous tints of the rainbow, was
the picture that met our gaze last Sat
urday morning upon passing through
the gates into the Lewis and Clurk
grounds. Wending our way north
westerly we see another and more
inspiring picture wherein nature fig
ures. Looking northward from the brow
of the hill at the entrance of the Trail
you get a view of mountain, lake and
river that is truly charming and up
lifting. Here we see the statuary rep
resenting one of the Lewis and Clark
expeditious, halted and lying at his
horse's feet, straning bis eyes still to
tbo Went in search of the promised
land "where rolls the Oregon. " Stand
ing silently and aud reverently there
aimd the din of the speiler on the
Trail, watching the restless, surging
crowd In their eager desire to part
with their money, and listening to the
bourse, vulgar cry of the spellers
along the Trail, pleading for a crowd
inside, our mind goes backward along
the stretch of a century, more than
half of which has been spent in Ore
gon, and we reverently bow our heads
in honor of the brave and daring ex
plorer and the pioneer who came close
upon the blazed trail behind him.
Here we are in this modern, civi
lized 20th century, with all the advan
tages of the older and perhaps metro
politan oities of the East and yet a
wild aad woolly West. Are we con
scious of our preseut frailities and do
we appreciate the splendid advantages
that are ever present with us? The
fellowship of the mountains, the musio
of the water falls, In touch with na
ture whose voice is beard in the rip
ullua of the water, the fragrauoe of
the flowers that comes softly to us in
the gentle breeze, which etiis the lake
beneath our feet.
The first attraction we set is the
famous Homer Davenport miniature
farm, with the finest bred horses In
America, the larget private collec
tion of pheasants known, and an end
less variety of other priceless fowls
that have been collected at the ex
pense of years and a large outlay of
money. Here we find Homer Daven
port, a native of Oregon, born and
raised in Hilverton, Marion couuty,
a man large in "tatiiro, large In bruin
and broad and liberal to the limit, at
borne In a log cabin, which is a fac
simile of the house in which be was
born, happy, and why? Because he
has attained unmeaHiired success along
congenial lines. His purse Is well
tilled, aud his faimly, as also are his
pet dogs, his fowls and bis borses, are
with him, and bis office walls are cov
ered with bis cartoons which have
brought to him both fame and wealth.
These are the things be loves, and
why should be not be content?
All along the Trail (here are feuturei
that appeal to the morbid curiosity,
and all day long and up to 11 o'clock
at night, amid the din andf'onfusiou
and the zealous cry of the speiler do
crowds pass inside and are afterward
sory they parted with their money.
The fair proper has already passed the
experimental stage, and the manage
ment is at this early date assured of a
financial success. While the conces
sionaires Inside the grounds aud the
numerous stands outside the gateway
are going broke. ;mi - lZZ
We are quite at home in the Oregon
building and the agricultural and hor
ticultural buildings, where most of
the counties have good exhibits and
also many of the states are represent
ed. The Wasco county exhibit, in
charge of Mr. Castner, of Hood Kiver,
and Mr. Schmidt of The Dulles, is
complete and well kept. These repre
sentatives are proving good entertain
ers and Instructors concerning our
vast and valuable resources, and cuon
advertising in behalf of our couuty
will surely prove fur reaching in its
effects upon our future welfare. Polk
oounty, a county which is very near
my heart on account of its being my
childhood home, and where 1 spout
the best years of manhood, is in line
with a fine exhibit which is in charge
of Mrs. Wolf, whose intelligence end
energy have twice made it the blue
ribbon county of the state at the Ore
gon state fairs held at Salem.
It is impossible to enter into details
concerning what can be seen in one
day. It would require weeks to do
the fair thoroughly and give a de
tailed account of the same, hut I must
not forget to say tbut the stute build
ings are very creditable. Among them
we note our own dear stute of Oregon.
California, Washington, Idaho, Utah,
New York, Missouri and Massac Im
setts urn represented by state build
ings. California and Washington are
probubly taking the lead, partly on
acoount of their location on the
grounds, and proximity to our stute
Another thing I want to say is that
Coos county stands alone as having a
building of ber own. It stands near
the Oregon building and is a neat
piece of architecture aud more expen
sive than most buildings according to
its size, from the luct tbut it is fin
ished outside with dressed lumber and
painted pure white. The interior fin
ish is of native bard wood, which is
capable of taking on a very high grade
polish. Their exhibit is worthy of

day. The poet of the Sierras at 3 .30
o'clock delivered an eloquent address,
which proved an eulogy on Oregon
aud the pioneers of early days. It
was not only eloquent, but poetic as
well and all the more interesting to
me on account of a personal acquaint
ance with him, dating back to 1807,
when the now famous poet was the
oounty judge of Grant county. 1
hunted prairie chickens with him, and
we Untied and swum in the John Day
river. These were precious days for

The old poet was at bis best and
thrilled bis audience, especially so
when he told of his first day's w.irk

The Charm of Beauty
Is in the hair. It is almost impossible for a lady to be
really attractive and pronounced beautiful if she is not
endowed with an abundance of luxuriant hnir.
There is a great deal in the care of the hair. The
utmost precaution should be exercised in the selection of
combs and brushes.
We have just placed on display the finest assort
ment of Brushes ever shown in Hood River.
They are the kind that wilfnot destroy the hair or encour
age scalp disease.

make a .comparison with a locomotive having six-foot driving wheels. U't it be run until its wheels shall have
given the same uumber of revolutions that a watch balance gives in one vear, and it will have covered a distance
equal to twenty-eight complete circuits ol the earth. All this a watch does without other attention than winding
once every twenty-four hours.
Now, suppose both machines started in good order. The locomotive is oiled every fifty minutes, is carefully
wiped and cleaned before being oiled. So that while doing the work of a watch for one year', it has been cleaned

disbanded for a summer vacation.
They have made a wonderful record
this season, winning every game they
played. The.Odell boys met them six
times on the' diamond and were as
often defeated. The Mount Hood
base ball team is like everything else
here can't be beat.
Another barn raising this week.
This time it is Louey llurkbard. Mr.

out of Mount Hood. By the way, J.
