HOGD RIVER GLACIER, THP&dDAY, MAY 10, 1006
BERRY OUTLOOK AT
Tbe DavifJtton Fruit Co. teut out
several letteis recently to gut inform
ation from berry district (but come
into competition with food River

rrom tneletters bb follows:

to your favor of the 24th. iust.
wjjjl ay that inasmuch as we bare bail
vvery backward spring, we will load
oar first oar of strawberries tomorrow
from this poiut Tbe quality of our
fruit ia only luir ; it will average
about as usual in quality. We will
ship about 200 cm from Vim liureu
and it will tie about tbn 15th before
we finish marketing straw berries here.
1 understand that the Fayetteviile
and Bprmgdale di I riots will begin
about May loth and will snip uutil
about tbe 25th and will bave about
250 oars. Then, south" est Missouri
will begin. My information is t hut
berries in theso two latter districts
are exceptionally tine at tbe present.
Texas is shipping uow altbougb tbey
are bavlng too much rain and are sell
ins at $1.15 f. o. b. shipping station,
We expeot to get $2 50 tor our first car
tomorrow. Our average lust year for
tbe season through wag $1.;8 per orato
paid tbe grower wbiun was tne lowest
in several years. The prospects are
not as flattering this year as in former
years lor us and 1 anticipate our aver
age for tbe reason will not be more
than that' of last year. Mississippi
will finish marketing her oiop this
week; then comes Humboldt, Tenu.,
but the Mississippi, and Tennessee
berries are shipped mostly to cities
east of the Mississippi Kiver, while
Texas, Arkansas and Missouri market
the principal part of their crops in
oit'es -west of the Mississippi River."
Florin, Cal., Apr. '27. "We beg to
acknowledge receipt of your favor of
tbe 24th and are very glad indeed to
exohaoge information with you in re
gard to the crop conditions of tbe two
districts. We are now shipping out
of here about 1000 to 1500 cases daily.
Next week tbe dollar varieties start in
in a small way and we will probably
ship straight car lots about May 7th
to 10th. It is just a little bit bard tor
us to tell just exactly what time tbe
car-lad shipments will stop; our last
oar generally goes forward about the
25th to the 30tb of May. We shall iu
all probability use Butte and Salt
Lake markets fo" car-lot shipments.
Last year we bumped into you people
In one oar at Salt Lake. It, however,
was not our fault, as tbe Salt Lake
merchants did not advise us of any
Hood River stock being on tlio market
at the time we shipped tbe car. How
ever it all developed later on, and I
guess from reports with serious oou
sequences to both of us. At any rate
know that last oar with us did not
bring ranch mouey. The quality of
our dollar berries promises to be the
finest we bave aver handled. This is
owing to favorable showers and tbe
acreage we have on new land, which
is bearing its first crop. However bh
yap say, much depends on tbe weath
er.", Stfrcoxie, Mo., Apr. 30. "I think

will oaly be a few crates locally,
about May 12th to lltb, and will be
gin on car loads about the 17th or
18th, it may be a little sooner because
we are having fine wtather, and ber
ries are coming fast. Tbe prospects
now are that we will have a good qual
ity of berries, roviding tbe weather
is favorable, but the quantity will be
about 25 per cent less than last season.
Last season Sarooxie shipped 135 cars
610 24qt. cases. S. W. Missouri or
this seotiou, loaded aud shipped about
750 cars, this year.'.Surcoxie will ship
about 100 cars, aud S. W. Missouri
about 550. Our season I think will be
over about June 5th."
Monett, Mo., May 30. "1 think we
will be shipping in car lots by tbe
20th of this mouth. Shipments will
not be so he:ivy as 1904 and 1005, but
quality will be good. Our heaviest
shipments will be about June 1st. 1

Wo rniA-Bt vei-v much that our Frauk-

we had only a letter of regret in place
of the promised visit from our deputy
nraanlzer. F. M. Gill. The letter was

Speaking from personal observation, 1

After dinner, an hour was spent in a
social love feast of heart-to-heart talks
on subjects of interests to all.

Next followed a talk on what a
Orange should do on election day, by
A. 1. Mason, lie noted briefly tne
merits and demerits of each of the ten
hills to be voted on at out coming
election, and tried to impress ou each
voter bis duty at tno poles, mere
was something, too, about the duty r.t
women, but we can only use our in
fluence. It would be dreadful, you
know, if we took the time to vote.
Then followed the debate on tne
question, "Should women bave the
right to vote", with Mr. uox am
Johnson aud Mrs. Shell - as judges.
Mrs. Jarvis led tbe alllrmative and
Mrs. Taylor the negative. The debate
was very interesting aud tneie was
some fun, too, for you know "A little
nonsense uow and then is relished by
the best of men." and resulted in a
decision iu favor of tho affirmative.
Now we are not sure why this ques
tion should carry olf the laurels in
Pine (Jrovo aud moet suon dereat in
Hood River. We will attribute it
either to the logical argument of tho
debators or our bright aud fair mind
ed judges. We will leave this for you
to decide. Alter the debate theie was
a free-for-all discussion and a warm
ing up. Time was called ou more
than one. We adjourned at 5 o'clock
and all wended our way homo, voting
(women, too,) that we had speut a de

County Commissioner Uiubaid aud
he said the custom or tne county was
to do nothing until those signing tbe
petition worked a day. So we con
formed to the rules. Some worked,
others hired men aud we conformed
to the rules of the county court, all
under supervision of the road over

Last fall Mr. Woodworth thought
that my bill tor 10c per yard for grav

to the corner of my place, set men to
