HIGH SCHOOL HATTER
WILL BE DISCUSSED
Notice of a meeting of tbe tobool
director! of tbe various schools in
the valley was recently pnbtUbed for
the purpose of diMraauing the project
of instituting a high school for both
tbe city aud the outlvlna districts iu
tbe valley. The meeting was not held
owing to toe tact tbat J. II. Acker-
man, Htate Superintendent of In
struction, was not able to be present.
It is now proposed to issue call for
another eeting which will take plaoe
on Saturday, January 27. Mr. Acker
man will at that time be present and
demontrate tbe advantages of baying
snoh school located beta. Tbe
meeting will be beld at 10 o'clock
and it is earnestly requested that the
sonooi directors and otners interest
ed in tbe plan attend.
Tbe benefit to be derived from an
educational institution of this charao
ter are many and far reaching and
will solve tbe difficulty of giving in
struction in tbe higher branches on
tbe most economical plan tbat oan be
devised. One of tbe features of
school of this character would be tbe
opportunity given pupils living in
the couutry districts to receive higher
education wbile still living at borne.
or at least while living near enough
to oe under tbe Dome lnnuenoe at an
age wben a little restraint or advioe
is most beneficial It is thought that
such a school would also attract many
pupils from the nearby towns, whose
tuition would help pay the expense of
Most of the present schools are in
an overoiowded condition aud some
provision will have to be made for
the oonstant increase in the number
of pupils received. This is true not
only of tbe city schools, but of tbe
district schools as well. With the
population increasing so rapidly it is
ueoessary to make some provision for
newcomers in tbe valley, and it is
hoped tbat by taking the matter in
hand now that proper provision can
, be made for them.
Good Outlook for Poultry Badness.
The poultry industry of tbe Pacific
ixortnwest nas been making gigantic
strides in tbe past few years. That it
is not yet "up to the procession" is
evidenoed by the many car loads of
poultry which aie shipped iq from tbe
Eastern states. Tbe reason ' for these
large shipments is tbe great demand
that thire is for poultry and poultry
products. As an outlet for the pro
duction of poultry, we bave the large
cities ol Portland, Seattle, Xaooma,
Spokane and tbe mining centers of
eastern Oregon, Central Idaho, south
eastern Washington and British Col
umbia, aud tbe large shipping inter
ests wbiob must be supplied, going to
ine Aiausa country ana tne urient,
This is a demand that will not be de
.creased, for as tbe years roll by, more
people are le'ng employed In these
same localities and businesses, who
are non-proddcers of poultry and
poultry supplies. These additional
demands must be suppplied,. by the
farmers and tbe suburban poultrymen,
As a rnle, tbe suburban poultrymen
are raising tl.e high grade poultry and
looking after tbe interests of the fancy
market. Yet thousands every year are
tending fiaat for breeding stock and
egg?, owiug largel . to the lack of num
bera of tbe quality desired. Tbe pure
bred poultry of tbe West is equal to
that of tne Hiast. as has been evi
deuced by tbe competition of Western
birds in tne ttast. statesman.
Pap r Strawberry Boxes a Failure.
Now that the strawberry season is
again opening op, many shippers, have
taken tbe tiouble to make Inquiries
or the UfliOARO raoker as to tne advis
ability of the nee of tne pasteboaid
strawberry orate tbi year. There is
some talk among manufacturers of at
tempting to again revive tbe sale of
The paper box first made its appear
ance upon the market about twelve
years ago. At tbat time it was used
quite extent-ively by small growers
only. It fceenis tbat tbe box soon lost
favor and tht noue of the larger
growers took to the p-opoeition. Tbe
following are tbe principal reasons
why the pasteboard strawberry carrier
will nevtr again come Into popularity :
First, tbe moisture from tbe fruit
softens tbe box, thereby allowing it
to crus-h easily. If tbe season should
lie an exceptionally rainy one and the
berries contained a great portion of
water, as they always do, under these
conditions the box would prove al
most worthless. Second, the paper
box has no stability. Third, ' tbe
weight of tbe fruit invariably mashes
tbe lower tiers of boxes so tbat tbe
bottom and sometimes tbe second
tiers are left in u mess of slop. Wben
fruit arrives in this condition, how
ever perfect it may bave been wben
it left the point of shipment, it is a
difficult matter for tbe receiver to
convince the shipper that bis fruit is
no other than No. 1. Hence so many
disagreements arise between shipper
and reoeiver as to the condition, of
fruit. Tbe nse of tbe wooden box
would practically eliminate these dis
advantages. At tbe time tbe papet
box was used most exten lively there
was not much difference between .the
cost of a paper box and a wooden one.
Paper then cost about 12.25 and 12.50
per thousand. Wooden boxes at that
time cost about 13.
Tax Levy For 106.
Late Friday afternoon the county
court decided on a tax levy of 20
mills for tbe county daring the oom
ing year, divided as follows: For
state, 1 mills; county school fond.
5 3 mills; library, 1-10 mill; roads, 3
mills; county 9.L
Last year tbe levy was 27 mills,
made higher because of tbe extra, fx -peuse
on account of the fair. As the
county is now out of debt and in good
financial condition it was hardly
thought the levy would be so large
The taxable property this ye r Is
valued at $6,061,5)45, wbile last year
it was $4,737,220.
Among tbe amounts neoessary to be
Htate tax, IH.625; school tax, 132,
046; library fund, $532; road tax, $18,
185, besides officers salaries and run
ning expenses. Chronicle.
Appreciates the tilacler.
Tbe following letter from a resident
of Mosier expresses bis appreciation
of the Ulacier aud also his apprecia
tion of tbe soil of tbat vicinity, as
will be noted by parnslog it:
Gentlemen : Enclosed find my check
for $1.50. I am behind la my sub
scription, - so psy op lor fear some
Thursday tbe lilkcier may tarn ap
missing, which woaid. cause me to
"beg, borrow or steal" one. I would
not miss a single iasaa, not even
though my friend Mclnnes offered me
tbe best Jot in tbe center of White
Salmon. I to sorry your cor respond
ent wben he wrote ap Mosier did not
pay me a visiit. I was prepared for
him. I bad two new corn eob pipes
and a package of Kiliklnio to smoke
after a sumptuous repast of beans and
corn dodgaia with lamp. I could
have tben with pleasure shown blm
over my estate. Hood River can boast
of its big apples, but we can discount
them on the apple worm. Tbe worm
grows so big here we bave to crack
them to get the apple, tben our soil
is so rioh we never think of planting
vegetables for sale. Wben we get an
order for vegetables we simply fill a
wagon box with soil, plant our seed,
drive to town and our customers there
gather tbe vegetables fresh from - tbe
wagon. One farmer in Uuskey valley
had an order for parsnips; be started
from home with his wagon seeded to
this variety. When about a mile from
home on a down grade his wagon sud
denly stopped. His horses, though
urged, could not budge it. Be got
oat and investigated, and found one
of the parsnips had struck a knot bole
In tbe wagon and grew down to the
ground. The last report I heard was
that tbe horses and ' farmer were all
right, the wagon a wreck and the road
supervisor was using powder to get
the parsnip out of the road. Hood
River farmers do not buy nitro to in
nooalate your soil. Come op here
and we will give tbem enough soil to
innocalate a life time. ; -
BY THE WAY
k Review of (he OIt Year.
Tonight a farewell glance I cast
Upon the year tbat now is past,
Before I try tbe realm so vast
That lies beyond my view,
I fain would stop Time's weary flight
For just a moment's pause tonight,
To get my bearings ail aright
The voyage to renew.
Bat dare I face tbe dying year,
Lest troops of misused boars appear
And stalk like specters pale and drear
. Across tbe barren sand?
But on tbe sand some flowers we And.
E'en though the weeis are intertwined
And memory's streamlet, verdure lined
Flows through the fading year.
'Tis with a ling'ring pang of pain
We view the heights we Btrove to gain,
Wben human strength was all in vain
To reach the cbemhed prize.
But aspirittious born on high '
Amidst tbe carnage do not die
And beckon still toward tbe sky,
Wbere their fruition lies.
And oft tbe blows of circumstance
Our dearest interest may advance
Tbe unseen band of Lore, rei chance,
Be underneath it all.
And while tbe year has viewed afar
Tbe writhing nations torn in war,
Thank God, we bave not lost a star
Nor let "Old Glory" fall
And through my window now I see
Tbe clouds disperse, while full and free
The moon bursts out a silver sea,
Wbere all was dark and gloom.
So let us trust that God's own light
May scatter all our clouds of night,
Until the future sky grows bright
With Hope's eternal bloom.
