HAY BE BUILT
MOUNT HOOD ITS OBJECTIVE POINT
Sentiment There In Favor of It and
Committee Will Confer
A meeting was held at Mount Hood
last Saturday to determine the eenti
meat of the residents there lu regard
to tbe propoaed eleotrio road which it
is proposed to build from this city to
The meeting was held in the Mount
Hood ball, about 10 persons were iu
attendance. A number of ffeutlerueu
from this city repreHeutiuK the pro
moters of the road were in attend
ance. O. M. WlshHrt, president of
the Mount Hood Development LeKgue
was chairman of the meeting.
Tbe proposition as first made was to
bave the residents of that section do
nate land to tbe company, but after
diosuasius tbe matter it was decided
that tbe better plan would be to issue
bonds. Another mooting will be held
at Mount Hood next Buturday when a
committee will be appointed to confer
with the promoters of the read,
- It Is understood tbat Portland enpi
tal is behind this enterprise and that
it has been under consideration for a
long tme. One of tbe prime movers
in the building of the road is said to
be tbe Stanley-Smith Lumber Com
pany. In a short time the big mill of
this company will be put in full oper
atiou and will be able to cut, if worked
to its fullest capacity, in a 24 hour
day from from 2f0,0(JO to IWO.OOO feet
of lumber. Tbe facilities for getting
this immense amount of lumber to tbe
railroad at present are inadequate and
the eleotrio road it built would have
a apur running from the main line to
the mill. A local enigneer who has
been over the ground seveial times,
over wbiob the new road would run,
says that the distance to be traversed
by a railroad from here to Mount
Hood would be about sitxeen miles.
Tbe most practicable and shortest
route for the lnmber company . to the
O. 14. & N. would be a point some
where near V ion to aud it is suid that
If tbe road is built a spur will leave
the line aud strike for tbe railroad
before it reaches this city. Ou this
part of the road it will be uecuMStiry
to build a switchback to got over the
mountains but will give the lumber
road a more direct route. 1 tetter
yards, It Is said, onu be secured ut
this point for storing lumber and more
convenient facilities for loading it
tban can be had at Hood River.
Tbe Dart of the road from flood
River would swing out through the
western part of town aud on out
through tbe valley, over a route that
has not been decided ou; Htforts are
being made to have tbe lumber road
brought here and yards for it eHtab-
lisbed iu tbe western part of towu
whore it is said tlierejs ample room.
Tbe cost of tbe new enterprise has
not yet been defluateiy determined
and ou it hangs tbe possibility of its
being built. There are a number ot
serious engineering problems in con
nection with tbe proposed road aud
tbe amount of capital required will be
oonsiderutble. The elf orts of the com
pany aie expected to be mot with as
sistance in its undertaking and the
oitizens of Mount Hood bave ex
pressed themselves as willing to help
If tbe road Is built the erection of a
hotel near Lost Lake is said to lie one
of tbe features iu view for the attrac
tion of tourists aud visitors on sight

Uoldendale, March 5. Dear Kditor
You may print this if you like.
Some timoago a C'eiiterville man whb
wakened at night to Unci his wife
"My darling," be said iu distress,
"what is tbe matter?"
'A dream I" she gasped. "I have
bad such a horrible dream."
He begged her to tell it to hitn in
order that he might comfort her.
After long persuasion she hs induced
to do so.
"I thought I was walking down the
street and I came to a ware house
where there was a large rilncard,
"Hdbands for sale." Vou could get
beautiful ones for 11,600 or even fur
)1,200, and very nice ones for as low
The husband asked innocently,
"Did yon see any tbat looked like
The sobs became strangling.
'Dozens of them," gasped- the wife,

If there is any mau who doservei
tbe utmost contempt of the commun
ity, it is he who will fgnoiiiinoiiHly as
sault a puppy dog without au osten
si We reasou. Hut experience has just
ly proven bow easy it is to technically
prove tbe ignorance or sucu a scouii
Hags are generally regarded as
worthless brutes by the inconsiderate,
and are unfeelingly cared for,' ill
treated and ill fed. Vet, not with'
standing, technically considered they
are of the most valuable animals on
earth. Tbey bave frequently ren
dered, by vol mtary action, tbe most
valuable service to man. Tbey have
saved multiplied thousands from
drowning, imperiled their lives to
save people from freezing aud saved
families from tbe force of the uplift
ed band of the assassin. About six
months ago , Mr. King advertised in
tbe (Jlacier four valuable pups for
sale. 1 purchased one of them for my
wife. In a short time be developed in
to a beautlft dog of marked ability.
He soon became tbe most friendly and
afieotlonate animal I ever saw. We
taught bim to be watchful aud be
readily installed himself in the home
a guardian, and protected or of Mis,
Ostrander. and she became greatly at
tacbed to the little fellow and bis
company waa much appreciated
One afternoon I went out to shoot a
hawk In a tract of timber. Tbe puppy
ran after a rabbit over tbe bill to a
man's baiu. Ha lingered a tew mo
ments to tiud the rabbit. Soon tbe
man of the house appeared gnu in
hand. The little dog ran toward bim,
thinking he came out to assist bim
lu Retting the rabbit. But instead,
ho tired four times, klh'ing the dog.
During tbe time 1 was about tweuty
rods away, calling Hist to tbe dog and
then to the man, eutreatiug bim not
to kill my dog. When he saw the dog
was dead, be caught him up and car
ried bim in the house. I followed to
the man's door, waiting for bim to
appear and explain. Also, I wanted
the dog to give him a burial, but the
contemptible wrtecb was iu biding.
The dog had never injured him to
the value of one cent and for tbat
matter uo one else. Then why did he
shoot my dog? I know but one cause.
The dog was watchful and if a prow
ler came around at night he would
give us warning Last year we lost
about 50 fowls. Tbe dog was valuable
to us aud $o0 would not bave been an
equivalent for him. Respectfully,
Judge Take's (iiialinYatlon.

This will require In tbe Senate a
strong, eueigetio aud capable man,
who is thoroughly in narmouy witu

Such a mau is II. M. Cuke, and the

To the voters of Wasoo county:
The impression has gone out among

would be a vote agaiust Hon. K U

aud the price has been gradually ris
ing for a number of years.
There has never been wnat would
bo called an over production of mules
while tbe market has often been un
abl to fully supply the trade.
The ability ot tbe mules to end me
great heat bas brought It into most
general use in tbe Southern states,
where large farms are devoted entire
ly to raising them.
Tbe mule matures more qulomy man
tho borse, and oan be placed ou tbe
market from one to two Jyears sooner
than tho average horse; this ni cutis a
largo profit to the producer and quiok
er returns for the investment.
A well fed mulo can be worked at
two years of age with safety, if proper
judgment is exercised by the driver.
Ibey are much less nervous tnan a
borse, thus not so liable to accident
or blemish. A blemish that would
make a fine horse unsaleable would
take but a trifle from the price of a
initio. They sell simply for tho work
they seem able to do rather than for
their appearance. The mule buyer
carries bis measuring stick i nd gives
probably .ri above the regular price
for eaob Inch the young mule meas
ures above four feet at wnaniug time.
Large herds of 50 and 100 are safely
koiit in a small inclosure. Ibey are
less subject to disease than horses,
when kept in larKe numbers. Acci
dent rarely occurs while tbe mule is
being btoke, because tbey always stop
when in danger of being hurt. Much
less care is exorcised than with the
care of horses, yet one seldom boos a
mule blemished by accident.
The grain ration for tbe mule Is
much less thau that required for tbe
borse: this is quite an Item to be con
sidered with the present high prices
We bave bad a large export trade
for .mules besides tbeii use in the
Southern plantations, says Live stock
Journal. Large numbers will be used
each year iu the construction of the
1'auamaUaual aud good prices may be
expected for some time to come.

1'rescription. In the May number of
the Ladles' Home Journal (1904), Mr.
Kdward Hok, the editor, staled that Dr.
Pierce' Favorite Prescription contained
alcohol and some other harmful ingre
dients, and Dr. l'leree had in tho action
illeged that the defendant malciously
lublistied this article containing such
also and defamatory matter, Dr.
Pierce further claimed that no alcohol
is or ever was contained in his "Favor

waa a vegetable preparation ana con
tained no deleteiious ingredients what
ever; that Mr. lioK's statement pre
tending to give some ol tne ingredients
of said medicine, was wholly and 'abso
lutely false. During the trial, tne Viae-
