Hood River day at the expedition
proved a big occhhhiu. Everyone of
the. oxcuruioiiibtM was at toe groundx
by 10 o'clock and everyone else at the
fair knew Hood iiiver. was in evidence.
Mot by noisy deiiioutitratioug or
gundy banners or big parades, music
and BpeochmukiuK, but through a dis
play of unstinted liberality and hospi
tality. Exactly 8000 flue apples were
tliveu away, and there is do eloquenoe

it had been intended to hold exer
cises at the Wasco county booth, and
h program had been preparod, but at
the last moment this was done away
with in order to expedite the distri
bution of famed Hood River apples.
From 11 a. in. until well along in the
afternoon three attendants were busy
handing out apples. The crowd that
claimed this ottering was built on the
order of a phalanx. No sooner would
the front of the line drop out burden
ed with apples than others would im
mediately take their place. The dis
tribution was supervised by E, L.
Smith and E. V. Shepard of Hood
While the excursion was organized
by the Hood River Commercial club,
every citizen of the place and every
resident uf Hood River valley seemed
to consider himself a part of the pro
motion committee. For many days
past the coming day at the fair has
been the prime topio of conversation.
And it was not all talk, for people up
Hood River way have a commendable
pride in their section of the globe,
and thus the greatest excursion of
the exposition was organized.
While a goodly percentage of the
visitors came from the town, the at
tendance from the country was heavy.
At daylight yesterday morning the
roads leading to Hood River were
lllled with conveyances of every des
cription. There wore buggies, lum
bering farm wagons, saddle horses and
carts, all bearing their burdens of
loyal humanity. A few determined
ones came on foot. The O. R. & N.
company made them a liberal rate
about euough to pay for axlegrease
and the conductor's salary. The tirst
excursion train was lllled quickly,
leaving a multitude to follow later.
Mauy of the visitors returned borne
on the evening trains,although a large
number remained over for today and
Portland day. These are niakiug tho

tural pnlaco, their headquarters.

About GO miles east of Portland and
eloping from the north tide of Mount
Hood to the Columbia river is a valley
lyiug on both sides of Hood river.
that has gained world wide reputation
on account of its fruit, particularly
its apples and strawberries. A quarter
of a century ago its inhabitants were
few; now they number several thou
sa ds, and there is no more prosper
ous, conteuted community iu the
country. The early settlers there dis
covered that the soil and climate were
particularly adapted to the raising of
these fruits, others went in there and
joined the pioneers in this occupation,
and now scores of carloads of straw
berries are shipped from there every
summer, while the Hood River apples
are celebated not only in all large
American cities, but in Europe and
aoross the Pacific, bringing, it is said,
the highest price paid for apples in
Ouoe an orchard is iu bearing it is
a very profitable, frequently netting
the growers $200 or $300 an acre annu
ally and occasionally much more than
this. Other products can be and are
raised there ; the soil is rich, timber
and water are plentiful ; a few acres is
all that a man needs to support a
family ; aud there is room there for
thousands more. It has been estimat
ed that not more than one-tenth the
area of Hood River valley is yet fully
utilized. The stream of that name
and others furnish abundant water
power, and there is no reason why
this remarkable valley should not in
time contain 25,000 or 30,000 people,
of which a due proportion will be in-1
habitants of the flourishing city of
Hood Kiver. while western Oregon
produces fine apples and other fruits
the climate is not such as to give them
the delightful tart flavor that makes
Hood River and southern Oregon
fruits famous, Apple raising is a
growing industry in Oregon, and will
become a very profitable one, and
Hood River valley will continue to be
a leading and favorite region in which
to pursue this pleasant aud pioUtablu
occupation. This is Hood River day
at the Lewis and Clark exposition, and
the good people of that town and val
ley are here in force. They are not
deterred by a little rain ; they are used
to that ; and they are properly proud
of their products, which, especially
the big red apples, are much in evi
dence. - Eastern people will all, we
hope, have an opportunity to test this
delicious fiuit, and having done so, it
is safe to say that they will agree that
these apple 8 cannot be excelled. The
people of Hood River, though most of
them own comparatively small tracts
of land, are thrifty, prosperous aud
progressive. They comprise a wide
awake community such as the whole
state can point to with pride and
pleasure. They have helped to make
the fair a success, aud we nope tuey
will enjoy it and proilt by it.
