article on the subject of overproduc

wlH Diucb Interest by present grow
erg and alto those contemplating tbe
, talBinff of apples in the valley and
, elsewhere,
Much of the success in mining flu it
of a superior quality at Hood River
bus been doe tu the fact that uothing
ha? been done blindly. The growers
have ever been ready to experiment,
iivestlguta and improve on oil tbe
known method of fruit culture. To
look ahead and not backward and not
to keep on lining a method because
some one eke used it.
It la well then to look the mutt or
of overproduction in the face an it
w.ere and see if there is anything in
it. From tbe figured adduced there
1 apparently nothing to fear. There
in always a market and a good one
for the boat and t Is not probable that
Hood River (rowers are going to take
any stops backward in tbe growing or
packing of thoir fruit. The standard
. has been established and thoto who
intend to enter the linld hereafter will
be compollod to aspiro to it.
The convention of the Oregon De
velopment League is one of the most
important events of tbe year. There
ia no elty in the ctatu that has created
more intercut in tbe league than Hood
River. Last year the presidency of
this organization was won for this
city by tbe syctoinatlo methods em
ployed by the rlolegiiUa in presenting
the name of K L. Smith and tbe
personal popularity of the gontlim tin
himself. If you are a dolegnto, you
owe it to your home town to attend
the convention ami soe that its repu
tation for progressiveneMS is upheld.
There is a movement on foot to bold
a horticultural meeting here after the
meeting to be hold at Portland in
January. It is thought that while
the information gleaned from tbe
state meeting Is still fresh in tbe
minds of thoso who will attend It, that
.it would prove of great benefit to
those interested to have a discussion
on the. papers read before the State
Horticultural Society in this city.
Christmas was quietly observod In
Hood River. Saturday was a very
busy day for the merchants, however,
some of them having done the largosl
businesd Jtr1 their history. The rail
road station presented the busiest
scene of activity, as there were many
home comings to spend the holidays
Under the parental roof.
' Tbe day itself was wet and dreary
and the streets deserted and those who
could do so stayed at home, c ntont
lng themselves with a good Christmas
dinner and examining their gifts.

' "Am luslaa Im Serpent LeseaeU
The red men of the west have many
turlous legenda concerning the riven,
lakes and mountains of that region.
Done more weird than that which li
told concerning Rock lake, Washing
ton. Since time out of memory th
Indian tribe of that vicinity believed
the lake to be Inhabited by a sea mon
iter which never grows old and whosi
chief diet la Indian flesh. Accordlnf
to the legend, no Indian ever entered
Its waters and returned therefrom
alive, no matter whether tbe rash ad
(was committed by approaching its mar
gin for a drink, for a plunge and a
awim or for a canoe ride upon its
placid bosom. AJ1 of the Indians of
the northwest know of the terrors ol
Kock lake, and each and every one
would prefer death with a poisoned ar
row rather than to touch its waters
The last Rock lake horror, according
to tbe legend, wag in 1858, when f

Tit Gate of Paradise.
When the plague which visited Flor
ence in the year 1400 hud subsided tlx
people decided as a thank offering tt
add bronze gates to the baptistery ol
tho Church of 6t John the Baptist
and the guild of merchants Invited tin
best artists of the day to compete. Tht
design of Ghibertl was considered
faultless, and he was intrusted wilt
the work on Nov. 22, 1403. It wai
tweuty-oue years before the two fold
ing doors were completed, and so cr
qulslte was their design and workman
ship that Michael Angelo a century lat
er said of them, "They are worthy tc
be the gates of paradise." This up
plied also to another door wrought
and designed by the same artist, which
was put in pluce June 10, 1452, a mosl
Important creation of Florentine art
and one which evidently Influenced Mi
chael Angelo himself.
Storklnra of Human Hair.
They were black stockings, thick,
stiff, lustrous, and the price mark on
them was $10.
"From China," said the dealer "from
northern China. Every family has a
few pairs of human hair stockings
there. t They are worn over the cotton
stockings they are too prickly to be
worn next the skin and, properly
treated, they last a lifetime. The Chi
nese exporter who sold me these stock
ings said that when a child's hair is
shaved la northern China tbe hair Is
preserved In a special hair box of lac
quer. As soon as the box Is full enough
the hair Is taken from It, and a pair of
stockings Is woven. Such stockings
have a sentimental, almost a religious
value, and they are rarely parted with.
It would be safe to bet that there are
not six other pairs of hair stockings on
sale In America." New York Press.

Tbe Final Blow.
It is said that often when a woman
says "no' she means "yes," but there
are signs which discourage even tbe
most hopeful and persistent wooer.
"I didn't so much mind Hetty's say

jack as me," said Ethan Hatch for

didn't much care when she said she'd

Bryant always thought he could
write much better poetry than that
contalued in his "Thanatopels," which
was one of his earliest. During his
later days he on several occasions ex
pressed some surprise at the prefer

particular poem, "when I have done so
many things better." Ue believed the
translations of Homer to be the best
work he ever did.

The (ilrl From Sweden.
Mananer Clarke Informs us that he
has tccu ed an cxceptionrT uttructiou
for our theutre-iioers in "The Uirl
From Sweden." a oomedy drama in
which heart interest and comedy are
provided in about equal pints.
This atolraetion will be presented at
tbe opera house January 0, by JHnn
aeer Fred FaJkner. It tells - an inter
esting story woven about the lives of
a Swedish trlrl and ber Swedlsli lover,
aud while it Is largely ot the domestic
style of drama, it odors a tbriliinu
touch or two of melodrama. The
Swedish dialect charoctor is a favorite
with man; theatre goers, and tbe tun
evolved in tbe stage stories of the ex
periences in this country of the hardy
immigrants from the Northland is of
a sane and enjoyable kind. "Tbe Uirl
from Sweden," tho heroine of tho
play, is a lovable character and wins
the sympathy a:d emdnuse of her
audiences by ber simple devotion to
truth and duty, aud her courage in
dangerous ci isises. The hero of the
play is a young Swede who Is ever
ready to do battle with his wits or his
lists lu defense or wohc is jutt and
right. An unusual amount of comedy
Is developed in the action of the play,
and many specialties are introduced.

The Snndar Stone.
The "Sunday stone" of the Oxford
museum was taken from a colliery
drain aud is a perfect calendar of Sun
days and holidays. It Is composed of
carbonate of lime. When miners were
at work, the water running through
the drain left a black deposit colored
by coal dust. At other times the water
ran clear, leaving the stone deposit
wiute. lu coi.rse of time these black
and white layers formed a stone of
considerable thickness, which consti
tutes a ery complete calendar. Each
day of work has as Its record a black
Btreak, followed by a white streak,
which marks the hours of rest at night.
Wider White streaks mark the Sundays
and whole holidays, aud thus It has
taken Its uaiuo as the "Sunday stone."
