MT. HOOD RAILROAD
Work tbat is being done by a large
force of men on the Mount Hood mil
road will toon have the line In Que
shape and permit of good time being
made over the line. Gangs have been
working from both enda of the road
have done much to improve on the
first and hurried ooustraotiou of tbe
road and when tbeyare.tbroOgb it
will be in good shape."
A great deal of lumber and other
freight is being hauled over tbe road
and the passenger business Is increas
ing also. In addition to tbe.station
at Hood River three other stations
have reoently been completed. -They
are at Van Horn, Odell and W inaus
and combine a waiting room for pas
sengers with a compartment,, for
freight also. At Van Horn tbe.Uavid
son Frnlt company has erected a sub
stantial and commodious waiehouse
for shipping apples and another has
just been completed at , Odell. Siae
tracks have been laid alongside of
them and it is evident that apploe
will probably be both paoked and
shipped almost directly from tbe or
chards in the near future. In fact
several carloads were shipped over tbe
Mount Hood line to their destination
this year. Several sidings have been
laid at othei points on tbe road for
the aocommodution of patrons, and
platforms have been built at all the
stations on tbe line.
The big mill, one side of which Is
in operation is cutting many thous
ands of feet of lumber, but its fullest
output is not possible owing to the
scarcity of men. Electric power is
being found most successful and is
employed in every part of tbe mill
except in operating the "nigger"
where it oouid no very well be used
owing to the jaring and jolting na
ture of tbe machine.
A conveyor for carrying oif tbe ref
use from tbe mill has been elected
and is about 500 feet long taking the
stuff far enough away from tbe big
building so there Is little or no dan
ger of Us takin Ore from tbe burning
pile of refuse.
A glanoe into the powet bouse
shows how smooth its machinery runs
as tbe fouduation for It is so substan
tial tbat there is no vibration from it.
Loading platforms, piled up lumber
and oars being switched back and
forth give tbe lumber town au ail ot
hustle and business. Tbe new store
and olHoes of tbe Oregon Lumber
oompany are fast being put in stbape.
The oompany has moved its stock of
goods from its store at Hood Klver
' and will soon have them in condition
for a speedy transaction of business.
Ibe offices will adjoin tbe store and
as soon as they are completed the gen
et al office of the lumber company will
be at Dee. A sidetrack extending
from tbe main line to tbe store
building makes it possible to unload
freight direct from the cars.
A good many small bouses .and
many tents are in evidence and with
tbe building of a school bouse the
town baviug been made a school dis
trict, and tbe establishment of apottt
ottioe Dee will have become a full
fledged town in something lent than

A special from Cody, Wyo., to the
Cheyenne Tribune. Bays of the plans
of "Buftalo BUI":
CoL W. b Cody ban arrived a bis
home in this oity from his Jong tour
of Europe and is beiug royally wel
comed by his many Hi lends here. .
Tbe veteran fiontiersman says he
cannot express his delight at his le
turn to is uative land and while his
recent continental tour was tbe most
Booessful in the history of his wild
west show, he is glad to have tbe
smell of sagebrush once more in his
Cody brings back with him many
gifts from royalty and says that the
recent trip ot his show was a wonder
ful one, thousands beiug turned away
at many performances, llejhas creat
ed somewhat of a sbnsaiion by an
nouncing tbat instead of another
year's tour in the United States he
has planned a long four years' tour
which will include every state in
America. After this tour, be says he
Colonel Cody does not look a day
older than weu he left Amei ioa for
his Eurpean tour, and in speaking of
his age, said: "1 expect to live
a runaway and tbat if they didn't
confess he would put them all In jail.
Tbe fellow then told a straight stoiy
and said that they met the boy at Jo
bla and that be bad run away from
bis home in Portland. The boy also
made a clean brent of tbe aitutlon and
said bis mother Jived at 640 ftortbrup
street, lie claims he la 16 years of
age, but looks about 14. Ibe marshal
took tbe boy to jail and telephoning
to the Dolioe in Portland, received in
struotions to hold tbe lad untilan
nfllner came UD tor him.
Later, when tbe jail was emptied of
it nruouers tbe oov called tne mar
sbal and said he was so lonesome and
broke down sobbing. Sexton gave
him a good lecture, which made tbe
tears flow faster and extracted
promise tbat bis first runaway. would
be his ast. Chronicle.
Tie Kind of Boys That l'r.
Someoody has figured out that the
average boy who is dependent upon
bis parents for a livelihood until be Is
21 years of age costs them in the
neighborhood of M,0UO, says an ex
change. On this basis of calculation
a brood, for instaooe, of six boys
would represent an outlay of 121,000
by the time tbey get away from tbe
home roost. Tbe question arises, does
it pay to raise boys aud sis there no
other crops that would prove more
proiltablef If a boy turns out to be
a cigarette fiend with a breath like a
turkey buzazrd and a laugh tbat
would make the untutored donkey feel
perfectly at home in his society, and
with an nntramnieJed and nnoonqured
deire to avoid work, It is safe to say
that his parents might have invested
their fl.OOO at a much better advan
tage. But if tbe boy grows op to
manhood with tbe lesson well leaioed
tbat wealth and suooess grow only on
bushes watered by tbe sweat of one's
trow, tbe parents need not begrudge
whatever tbey have spent on him, for
be will be a source of increasing pride
and joy to tbeir hearts, and when
tbey grow old and tbeir bauds trem
ble ana their legs watble and their
steps is slow and faltering, tbey have
two strong arms to lean upon and to
help them over all rough places that
lie in tbeir twilight. Condon Globe.
