HOODJjRIVER GLACIER, THURSDAY, JANUARY 11, 190. 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 maintaining it. 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 this package. 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 this year. 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 raised are: 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. William Steward Gordon. " "I shall spend tbewiuter in Samoa," said a traveler. "It's always summer there. There the babies swim. "Can you imagine a quainter, a more charming sight tban a host of babies, none over two years old, orowing and laughing and swimming like fish in pools of clear sea water? "You will see this sigbt in Samoa. Sarooan women believe sea baths ben efit babies and iu tbat equable cli mate tbey bathe their little oues daily tbe year round. "Tbe youngsters soon learn to swim. - Tbey oan swim before tbey can walk. "And to see 'beee pretty brown ba bies swimming in the sea is well worth a 5000-mile trip to Samoa."
