Our One Subscriber.
The Optimist went to press with its
llrst issue the proud possessor of a
paid subscriber just one! and we got
hni) by a "fluke," or under false pre
tenses, or by a trick. He did not
come out in the open an put up bis
ouo-tifty like a man.
Our one paid-up reader was lion.
E. Li. Smith, that young pioneer,
that frisky, brainy and always mak
ing good chap from Hood Kivei, or
rather "of" Hood Kiver. He is nevei
"from" there save in substance his
mind is like a clock, always ticking,
ticking , ticking the praises of the lit
tle village to our westward.
The editor was down there a week or
two ago aud it was raining like sin.
'The water was coming down in
streams. Ho we were wearing what is
sometimes called a "slicker", and K
L. sidled up to us and poked a plunk
and a half plunk iuto our southeast
hlirki'r pocket. He did it furtively,
treacherously, with malice afore
thoughtwe might almost say oorrupt
and with intent to deceive. And if it
was not a felony it certainly was a
Aud where is that plunk and a half
now? Where are the rain-diops that
fell that day? Where are the mists
that overshadowed Hood and envel
oped Adams on that day of ill omen?
Ask the "perscription" clerks of the
Hood River drug stores if they know
anything about it, aud if not why not
aud wherefore. Can it be that Smith's
plunk and a half went to further per
fume a tippling topen's tainted breath?
Smith's? No; we mean bis plunk aud
a half, not his breath, for he knoweth
not the tippler's joy, never felt the
gentle, soothing, endearing effects of
a Hood Kiver "perscription".
Wo expect to huve other subscribers
thousands of them. We could have
had many paid-up names ou our books
now, but such was not our way of be
ginning. J! it as long as the Optimist lives we
will never forget our distinguished
Hood River friend, our sole and only
subscriber, aud will also remember
that we put his plunk and a half to
better use than he would have put it
to had he not forced it upon a too
conllding, guileless young man. Op

Sunday J. E. Stoll was riding a
horse iuto the city, and when turning
the comer at the ball grounds was ruu
iuto by two young men driving iu a
buggy, aud bis horse killed. It ap
pears that the young men were driv

rapidly approaching vehiole. lbe

the ribs, running them half through
the body of the horse, from the ef

Stole has placed the matter in the

A Strawberry Romance.
Hubbard Bowman and Q oldie Hall
were united In the bonds of matri
mony by Rev. Troy Shelley, Saturday
afternoon, at Judge Prathet'i oflioe.
Ibe contracting parties are from
Mollalla, Ore , and bate been picking
strawberries iu the Hllev, tbe groom
coming here with Mrs. "Nettie Hall
and her children, among whom was
the bride. The exhiliratiug mountain
air, together wit the beautiful aceu
ery aud pleasures of camp life made
the young couple an easy victim ot
Cupid's dart, and a friendly acquaint
ance which existed at their borne in
the sleepy Willamette valley ripened
iu',0 love iu the seductive glades of
the beautiful Hood River valley. Tbe
entrancing view of the snow-capped
moutaius while resting under tbe
snaue or giant pine and fir iu camp,
after the heat aud toil of tbe day.
ou,iohb mo namest Heart, and It is
nttie wonder that the young couple
could not resist its Influence.
They were conteut with life and
happy with the present, without
thought for the morrow, until tbe
strawberries bad ceased ripening and
plans were being made for tbe return
to the monotonous hum-drum of every
uay me on me Willamette. Mr. How-
man had concluded to remain here for
the summer at least, aud tbe thought
of separation from his heart's desire
was intolerable. Tbey decided to
Saturday all parties came to town
and Judge Pratber taken into tbelr
confidence. A. C. Buok was per
suaded to go to The Dalles for a
iioense, and be made tbe trip and
came back on tbe first train with tbe
uocument. Kev. Troy SCelley was
the first clergyman on tbe ground, and
with the simple and solemn rites of
the church the happy couple were
made man aud wife. V
Mr. and Mrs. bowman will be resi
deuts of tbe vallev for the summer at
least. Mr. Bowman bas secured work
on the irrigating ditch in tbe Cranner
district. The mother aud sisters of

Went Over the Falls.
Tbe two men, Joseph Melmine, an
engineer In the employ of Parsons,
Boomer & Wilson, contractors on tbe
north bank grade, and a fellow labor
er whose name is unknown, attemptea
to cross the Columb'a near Celilo 1 n
small boat, and by tbe breaking of an
oar they went adriit in tbe swift cur
rent and were utterly powerless to
help them. Attempts were made to
trow lines to tbe unfortunate men in
tbe boat, but tbey were too far from
shore ;aud ,the current was too swift
there to attempt to launch a boat.
Tbe frail boat in whlob tbe two men
were sent to thier death was dashed
to pieces after capsizing. Neither of
tbe coipses have yet been recovered.
James says the men, after making
every possible effort with one remain
ing oar to steer to the bank, stood up
right in the boat and met tbelr fate
bravely. When tbey were drawn into
tbe seething waters which poor over
the precipice at Celilo, tbe boat
danoed like an eggshell, both men
were Ditched headlong into tbe cur
rent and the boat was split from end
to end by striking a boulder. Noth

A short Darade was Riven, tbe
grades here proving almost too muob
for tbe small ponies, and after a torn
around the business street, tbey went
hank to the show srounds. Toe at
tendance was fair, and a very credita
ble performance was given, r
Tbe main part of tbe show was the
trained ponies and dogs. Tbe ponies
executed military drill by command
that would do credit to a drill com
pany, and were made to go througn
all sorts of maneuvers. The dogs were
also well trained, climbing ladders,
making bigb jumps, dancing, turning
summersaults, walking tbe tight rope,
etc Trained monkeys also added to
tbe performance, and a trained goat
did several stunts worthy of an athe
lete, such as walking tbe tight rope,
bareback riding, etc.
Altogether, the snow gave general
satisfaction, aud should they evei
give a return performance in Hood
Kiver, will be linerany pairuuizeu.

their meats, that it is useless for me to introduce
Wood Bros., our successsors, as their 18 years in
the butcher business in "Wasco county has made
them so widely known that nn introduction is un

they have the means and ability to rwn a business

credit to our city. i
I expect to stay with the new firm for awhile,
