r.:0OD RIVER GLACIER luecd i verr '1 huraday by AU'ltlCK D. MOB. Pubil.kar. Tenin ol iiberlption 11.40 jaar ala THURSDAY, JANUARY 4, HKXJ. Tie Wonderful Hood Hirer Apple. A wonderful applo la tbe Hood River applo Perhaps yon have heard this before; Perhaps while you slept, of our prloos , you dreamt, . Of our fame and gold medals gulore. We iutead to keep on top of the heap : In Hood River valley with climate ' and view, ML Adams, ML Hood, the Newtowus . .so good, And tbe Bpitz that we aii like to chew. The people all ax, "Are they real or just wax?" And cry," What a marvelous show !" Other towus in diugtiut look as if they would bust, When Hood River commences to Mow, E. II. Sbepard. THE BAXJl.'KT. That the enthusiasm and good will manifested at the banquet given by the commercial club of this city wns gratifying to its members goos with out saying. That an affair of the im portance and nagnitudo of this was so successfully carried through speaks well for the character and ability of the citizens of Hood River. Admira bly planned there was neither hitch or break to mar tbe pleasure and enter tainment of the evening. While tbe social side of the gather ing was a pleasant feature tbe busi ness side was of course paramount. Tbo tendency of segregation is to . ward selfishness and individualism and it is necessary to awakon most of us to the fact that there are othor in terest about us f hut should be of more Importance than mere personal gain. ' The romarks of the speakers cn this occasion were, we think calculat ed to make us forget ourselves for the time being at leust and lemember tie 'needs of a larger and bettor commun ity. Much can bo accomplished by Intelligent organized effort, toward the gohl of progress and prosperity, while little can result from each one trying to roaeb it by pulling In a diffoieut direction. The good feeling engendered at tbe bummet cannot full to have Its impios siou. The euthusiasui exhibited was genuine and expressions of good will towurd the club in its elforts to fur ther develop tho resources of the val ley were many. The club and the goutlemou who had the affair In clmrgeiire to be con gratulated, the speakers are to Le felioitutud and tho residents of Hood River should lie pardoned if they hold their heads a trillo higher than they did previous to the occasion, i '.' .. i We think that Hood River should be allowed to put IWelf on the back u lit tie over the showing it made at tbe meeting bi the llorUoiiltiuul Society at Portluud. l' ivo out of tbe seven cups offered as prizes -were captured by tbe homo growers. This will do very uicoly, thank you. It looks, however, as though we were entitled to another one, but that the judges wanted to give outBido growets some little consolation for exhibiting their fruit. However, to repeat, we have done nicely and it is a source of much sutisfuctiou to tho (Under that its statements as to the Hue quality of this year's apples have been borne nut by such tangible proof. Cups, like llgnres, don't lie, and tho proof of tbe pudding is lu chewing the string. The cartoon man of the Oregon inn caught A. I. Mason, 10. II, Sbepard and E. L. Smith on tho Hy at the meeting of the Horticultural Society yesterday. We think bo must have got bis suits slightly mixed, as it were, us the dignified president of the society is clothed lu the habiliments of a bookmaker) A. I. sports a white vett, aud the irrepressible fthepard Is seen in a clawhammer coat. We do uot remember any previous time when local newspapers through out Oregon have shown so much Inter est lu the subject of fighting the San Jose scale and other Insect pests as at the present time. A part of this interest has been aroused by the county Inspectors who are almost without exception good men, Ex. NATIONAL BANK ELECTS OFFICERS The aunual meeting of the stock holders ol the First .National Rank was held Tuesday afternoon. The meeting was well attended and all the share holders were represented. W. Mill key, of Portland, tho hank's attorney Was ulso present. An eleutiou of ofllcers for the ensu ing your was held mi I the following directors elected: 8. Stanley, K. L. Smith, R. Smith, J, 0.

Rlauehar was granted a leave of absence of two weeks do ling which time Mr. Stanley will have persuual charge.- The affairs of the In.uk were found to be in a most prosperous and satis factory condition aud the busiuesa outlook for it for the comiug year is equally satisfactory. Don't forget that Claike's cut glass excels any in town. Come and see. WORK ON THE SEWER COMMENCED TUESDAY The work of excavating foi the new ewer was commenced Tuesday be tween the Columbia River and the railroad tracks. Psge & Clark, who are the engineers on the sewer con traot,have engaged Hall-Lewis to look after their interests bere while the sewer is in course of construction. About .10 men have been placed at work so far and it is expected that as toon as the pipe arrives that as many men will be put to work on tbe job as oan be handled to tbe best advantage. There have been a number of appli cations for work on the sewer by meD whose homes are here and it is under stood that they will be given the pref erence. The work has been started about 1400 feet north of tbe O. R. A N. station and is progressing quite rapidly. The excavating will be the most tedious part of tbe job, as once tbe ditch Is dug th pipe can be placed in position very rapidly. The pipe ha n t yet arrived and until it does operatlous will necessar ily have to be confined to staking out and excavating. The city chrrter makes tbe appoint ment of an inspector to look after tbe Interests of the oity necessary, but as yet no one has been selected. It is thought that this provision will lie complied with in a few days. The sewer committee of council has trie matter under advisment and it Is their Intention to select some one who will be conversant with sewer matters and competent to till tbe position. A Wonderful Aittimatol. In the year 1770 tho most wonderful automaton that baa ever been con ttructed was exhibited at Exeter ex change, London. This automatic won der represented a country gentleman'! bouse, and was of such Intricate and elaborate construction that no one dis puted the- claim of the exhibitor when lie declared that be bad worked twenty Seven years In perfecting it It showed tho regulation English country house, With parks, gardens, cascades, temples, bridges, etc., besides over 100 appro priately clad human figures in the gar dens, on the bridges, chopping wood and nt various building operations, lu the park were several deer moving naturally about and four horses and s coach following the meandering road Besides tbe above the figures of boyc were seen fishing from the bridges, while a boat load of ladles and gentle men regularly rowed across an en largement lu the brook, much to tin consternation of the natural looking figures of geese and ducks which were paddling about In the water. Thi whole of tlieso anlmuto and inanlmatf figures were Inclosed in a apace onlj four and onc-hnlf feet square. A Winning; Text. When the Duke of Ortnond, whos family unme was llullcr, was going U take possession as lord lieutenant ol Ireland, ho wus driven by a storm on to tho Islo of Man, where a Rev. Mr. Joseph, a poor curate, entertained bin) us hospitably as his means permitted On his departure the duke promised to provide for hint as soon as he became viceroy. The curate waited many months In vain and at last went ovci to Dublin 'to remind his grace of bii promise. Despairing of gaining accesl to the duke, ho obtained permission tc preach nt the ratuedrul. The lord lieu tenant and his court were at the church, but none of them remembered their buinblo host till he prouounced his text, which, It must be acknowl edged, was well chosen, "Yet did not the chief butler remember Joseph, but forgot him." The preacher was at once invited to the castle and a good living provided for him. The Tlielmn Sphinx. The Thebuu sphinx wus suid to be t monster sent by Juno to lay waste the country around Thebes. It bad the bead and bust of a woman, the body of a dog, the wings of a bird, the pawl of a Hon and a human voice. It at once become the terror of the neighbor hood and devoured all who could not solve the riddle which It propounded, "What animal wnlks on four legs In the morning, two at noon and three a night?" Oedipus, attracted by the promise of King Creon of his crown and his sister in niarrlugc, camo to Thebes and declared that man goes on all fours In Infancy, erect on two legs when upgrowu and supports the In firmities of age with a stuff. On hear lug this correct solution tbe sphinx dashed her head against a wall, and the land bad rest. The Work of tUe Heart. One of the most remarkable things about the heart Is the amount of work it does. Considering the organ as a pump whoso task Is to deliver a known quantity of blood against a known "head," It is easy to show that In twenty-four hours a man's heart does about 124 foot tons of work. "In other words," says a contemporary, "if the whole force expended by the heart lu twenty-four hours were gathered Into one huge stroke, such a power wonld lift 124 tons one foot from the ground, A similar calculation has beeu made respecting the amount of work expend ed by the muscles Involved lu breath ing. Iu twenty-four hours these mus cles do about twenty-one foot tons of work." A Chines Ctilon. A quaint custom practiced by Chi nese mothers when a child Is restless and does not sleep Is to write the fol lowing verse and pin a copy of it on each of tbo four corners of the house, that tho pnssersby may read and the child find rest Literally trausluted the verse reads: Brilliant sparkling heaven, llillllant sparkling- earth. In my house there Is a child who cries at night. The gentlemen coming from the. four quarters behold Peaceful sleep till break of day. lie who can put real human sym pathy Into the conventional phrases of courtesy is indeed a man of tact.
