SOUTH MOSIER VALLEY
OFFERS BIG OPPORTUNITIES
A trip into the "Interior" of the
Mosier valley, if the expressiou may
be UHed, reveuls a large area, or rath
er a number ot long stretches of tim
ber country, of rich soil, good timber
and grand views of mountain and can
yon. Aside fiom the old state slae
road passiug from Hood Kiver throtinh
Mosier to The Dalles, all otl.er roads
radiate from the railway station to
the higher levels to the south. From
a common starting point thoy wend
their way up along either side of Mo
sier and Koclc creeks, or up each one
of the four ridgea or backbones of the
mountnin range that slopes with a
gradual ascent towards Mt. llond.
home time lu the ages long ago this
was the bottom of a large hike, as is
evidenced by well defied high-water
marks, washed gravtl, etc. Piobably
old Mt. Hood had something to do
with changlug the topography of the
country and caused eruptions which
freed the imprisoned waters and in
their mad rush to the sea cut out the
several deep canyons whose creek bot
toms ate hundreds of feet below the
ummits of tho ridges on either side.
The same doposits of volianio ath,
either in the form of a mixture of
whitish clnv soil or redd sh shot lund,
that is characteristics of Hood River,
is found in the Mosier valloy. Jt is
covered by the same kind of trees and
vegetation, lite orctianis mat nave
beeu planted lu the clearings here
aud there in tin midst of the virgin
forests. Bhow f good a growth, ap
parently, as lu 1'ood. Kiver valley,
where equal cure has beeu takon, and
where crops are grown without the aid
of the irrigation n ton.
Yet, outside of the few highly de
veloped farms just east and soul beast
of the station, but little is known of
the Mosier velley. It is a country
now occupied largely by the sturdy
pioneer, wl.o is slowly extending his
small cleariug, while spending imisl
of his Mine iii wotliitig tor ethers to

Taken us a whole, however, Mosier
is an undeveloped country. It is a
country as yot practically in a primi

with tit que-t ionalily a bright future
It certainly invites the young man
with limited means to make a start iu
life, with the sure promise of a valua
ble property ut the end of a period
of years. The quality of the soil is
demonstrated by bearing orchards
here and there, and the new comer
need make no experiments as to the
kind of fruit best adapted to this par
ticular locality. He can find all
kinds In the clearings of bis neigh
bors, in bearing.
Laud values range from seven dol
lars an acre tip, depending upon loce
tion aud adaptability for cultit ation.
Ou tbe ridges inside the ten-mile lim
it, good unimproved laud can be had
for fl,' to &!0 an acre, with a little
less desiraide land for 81,200 to M.UH0
a quarter section. Partly improved
ranches cau be had up to 1100 au acre,
depending on improvements and other
conditions. Other property is also
being cleared up, set to apples aud
placed ou the market at lo0 au acre.
Among tbe places beiug improved
in tbe South Mosier country are the
farms of J. 11. Heilbronner & Co. aud

The annual meeting of the Hood
Kiver Fruit Fair association was held
Saturday aiteruoou aud it is said that
more interest was shown iu the com
ing fair than has beeu known in srme
years. President Smith in calling tbe
meeting to order announced that two
years ago the meeting consisted of
one man beside himself, but never
theless tbe fair had beeu given most
successfully and augured that with tbe
iuterest indicated this year by the big
meeting the fair will be bigger and
better than ever.
The tlrst business of the meeting,
President Smith stated, was to elect
officers of tho association for the en
suing year, aud it was decided to
elect by acclamation. Mr. Smith waa
immediately nominated for presidtut
but stated that he would much pielot
that some younger man be prevailed on
to take the ollice. The meetiug would
not however, hear to this nod hia
name beiug proposed by N. 0. Kvaua

retary Cessling put the motion and
Mr. Smith was carried into ollice ou
a wave of popular approval.
