THAT WAS DELIGHTFUL
liy Roswcll Shelley.
Odell, Wast Hood River Valley, Deo.
v0.fTbe dnma ronndcd up an enter
talnmont lust Friday eveuing that was
,ilrllghtlul and instructive, proving
lieyoiid question that Odell possesses
tiileot of high order. The entertain,
went was prefaced with vocal and in
strumental soIob and readings that
brought tbe house down. Kuch num
,, ber on tbe program was worthy of
apodal mention. After the program
wan rendered refreshment" were serv
ed, including colfee and lemonade.
There wan alno a candy booth where
home made candies were sold that
wore delicious. Then there was tbe
gypsie tent that proved ail attraction,
being well patronized. Jhind closed
tent doors the past was recounted and
the veil of the f ture lifted, and while
we did not Interview tbe fortune teller
yet b we watched the crowd emerging
with a 2x4 amilo on their countenance
we take It for granted they were sutis
lied with what the future holds for
them. The invincible U. L. Roger
seemed especially happy and we ex
pect to hear of him buying another
apple ranch booii. About ) people
from Pine drove were over and those
we talked with congratulated Odell
upon its series of pleasant and profit--utile
winter entertainments. We sbook
band 4 with J. H. Jackson and wife
i and Miss Uloasnn and others of tbe
Pine drove people.
Tbe '"net proceeds of tbe evening
was 915 which amount will go towards
purchasing song books and other sup
plies for the Christian endeavor work.
We trust that this is the beginning of
many entertainments, that we, with
, aU other Odellites will have other op
portunities to listen to the talent from
behind tbe footlights. Quite a party
- ; from Barrett came over. We almost
forgot to guy that among tlie llarrett
popio we notioed Marsh . lseubcrg.
After several months of investigation
by one of Portland's ablest attorneys,
' we have Anally succeeded in securing
tbe Insurance due Mrs. Crockett, by
a joint policy of her and her late hus
band. The insurance certificate was
igsued by the Order of Lions of which
Mr. Crockett was a member. About
tbe time of his death, tills order
merged iuto the order of Washington
and it was due to the order of Wash
ington that all the troublo came
about. It is an outiage that insur
ance companies should take advantage
of technicalities in an effort to evade
the payment of an houest claim. Tbe
result was, that Mrs. Crockett was
compelled to employ nn attorney to
compel this company to do just what
they agreed to do, Huch disreputable
work as this wears the stamp of dis
approval by all good citizens and
really should lie put out of business
by a state law.
Last Sunday there was a quiet wed
ding at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Win J'ihrck. The contracting parties
being their son, W. (3. Ehrck and Miss
Mae Hull, teacher ol we primary
grade in tbe Odell school. Rev. Troy
Shelley otUduted. Only a few friends
wore present. The young couple left
on tbe evening train for Kanshs. where
they will pend a few we ks with tbe
brides mother. May tb irfo i lfst ex
pectations concerning wedded bliss be
Having abundant faith in Hood
River valley and feeling a special in
terest in tbe future of Odell, for the
good of the community, I desire lo
say that I think the time iai arrived
for the orasrulzation of a develorment
league. With tbe advent of the rail
road and with tbe pro ect of many,
investors coming our way in searcli
of apple hinds. Huch an organized
body of men at Odell would have op
portunity to do good w ik along the
line of advertising and developing".
In unity there Is strength. They are
oragnizing almo t everywhere. Mount
Hood people are lined up. There is
nothing that would tend to unify and
mould se timeut quicker than such an
organization. When It f ones to ques
tions touching tbe welfaie of the
whole community, Odell is not I ige
enough to draw factional lines. I let
tor get in and whoop ber up toget .er.
Several times we hate called tbe at
tention of the Glacier readers to our
want list. Right now there are many
things badly needed. ' We neei first
some one with a few dollars and some
grit to put up a boa-ding house and
feed stable. Then a barber's pole
would be in order. The men of the
community would meet with encour
agement and subhtuntial aid if they
would undertake the project of start
ing a young men's club with a gym
nasium and a reading room attach
ment. Once get a few of tbe neces
sities that go with village life and
strangers would come our war. Time
and time ugam have we phonei for
room for tbe stranger within, and
oftener than any other way to no
avail. County folk are not prepared
to keep travelers and yet when it
comes to acting the part of the good
Samaritan Odell is in tbe front rank.
Time brings its reward and these
things will oome to Odoll just as sure
as apples grow and sell for t'i per
box. Hut tbe tbljg to do is to oome
now and get in on tbe ground floor
for some one is going into history as
having made Odell famous.

Rebeccas was established tt Odell,

Mr. Newman is a man who does

sounds good to bis attorney. As ex

Rev, Mr. Wood, the pastor of the
Christian obuicbesof Hood River and
Odell, preached bis first sermon at
Odell last Sunday morning, The new
congregation here seems able to sup

the matter of building a new oburcb
may soou be considered.

Last week Frank Sberrieb and wife
of liarrett were visiting Mr, and Mrs.
Rosewell Shelley. Mr. Sherrieb is a
brother of Mrs. Shelley, but owing to
the fact that each day seems to tie bis
busy day be seldom honors his rela
tives with even a call. Mr. Sherrieb
was over attending the meeting, hav
ing for its put pose the consolidation
of several school districts into one
large district, with high school
grades. This seems a short cut to
solving tbe problem of getting an ed
ucation at borne, but tbe trouble la to
agree on a place. Will tbey?
Owing to the sudden departure of

Address ltcfore Odell Literary Society.
The following Address was delivered
before tho Odell Literary sreietv De
cember 1'J by Oarson O. Musiker:
I would address uiy remarks to tbe
young, for I am u firm believer iu
young pou lu. . Vou are all aware that
we tmve here m the United Sta'es of
America a guut country the urcatost
nn earth iu many things, and we lire
all proud of our -country. What ben
made our country so great in so many
respect)? Yon might Ihii.k that the
answer to this would be rather
lengthy, and so , it might, but 1 can
coudenxe it to a single syllable. If
(iod hud uot loved this world he would
not have created it; if be bad not
loved man be would never have creat
ed bim -would never have endowed
the sonl of uniu with that divine at
tributelove. Man could uot exist
without love. We are told that to err
t human, but that to forgive is di
vine. What prompts a man to for
give? Lore. For without love there
would be no frrgivenets, aud if a man
never forgave anything be would have
nofrieuds.and if a man bad no friends
and eery man was for himself alone
the Etjl One would get all of them
and the race would oease to exist.
Tho home is tbe foundation of the
goiernmeut. What prompted tbe
fathers and mothers of this commun
ity to build up these homes around
here? Love. Ouce the homes are
built tbey must be -secured, and we
full to of one accord and build forti
fications to protect these homes.
What is tho first step? Why, to build
this school house, for every school
house is a veritable fortification
agianst ignorance, vice and crime, and
we must have it, for love prompts the
effort and crowns the result. But we
are not done; we must have ancther
entrenchment, and we unite to build
that church across the street dedicat
ed to Ciod, tur God is lave, liut is
this ail? Oh, no; we are not done
yet. We go on and build that ball
aooss the other street dedicated to
frieudfcbip, love and truth, and tbe
diffusion of the principles of benevo
lence aud charity.. What is the main
spring of all this Jove? Love for Ood,
for country, for 'borne and for our
fellow man. Love is tbe mainspring
of our being, and it is this divine at
tribute tbut rhiseB man above the
brute creation. I sometimes bear
people sneei at lovers. 'That couple
are in love,' says one. 'Yes, ' fays
another, 'they are smitten.' 'Well,
now, 'says a third, 'don't thevremlnd
you of two sick kittens?' Such re
marks come from two classes of per
sons first the young and giddy who
have never felt the een'iment of the
tender passion, and sieoudly, from
an older claes who seem to have for
gotten that tbey themselves were once
yonng. In tte cctme of my duties as
a jintioe of the pet.ee, I have cttiicat
ed at a number of weddings, and 1
have never felt more HStbough'I ttood
in tbe immediate presence of my (Jod
than on such cccutiona.

it is rea onble to suppose that tbey

That a hotel like the

is a big drawing card for a

That it great many of the
