Many settlers are supplied with

"Never need an Ameruiau look be
youd his own country for the sub
lime aud beautiful of natural seen
ery, " wrote Washington living. Had
he lived to be whisked by in an alec
trio car thrcugh apple orchards of tbe
lower valley to view the sublime and
beautiful scenery of this upper valley,
he would have been oouviuced there
is uotblug of the like to surpass it in
America. The grandeur of Mount
Hood when viewed in such uoaruess is
unspeakable, aud one statids lu silent
admiiatlou. The auow peaks of
Hood, Adams aud Kaluier are seen
from many poiu's in the upper valley.
The let trie railroad projected and
now iu a fair way to niateiialize will
make this upper valley the objective
point of the tourist. No one of the
many thousands who will tour tbe
Paclflo coast each summer will wish
to leave nut tbe trip thrn'igh the
famous valley of Ilood Kiver to the
suow line of Mount Hood
this line Is now surveyed and right
of way procuied throng b the upper
valley as far as Valley Crest school
bouse where tbe southern terminus is
tor the present located. The survey
ors ure now at work iu tbe lower val
ley, aud the woik will uot be fluished
until the survey U completed tor the
whole line. The loud will greatly
benefit this upper valley its well
as the lower section. Population will
double iu two years. Land is com
paratively cheap, ranging in pries
h orn 800 to 1250. In this land of great
possibilities, the a man ot rnoderte
means can establish a home. With the
advent ot tbe electric line, tbe large
holdings of land will be divided into
small tracts and a dozen or moie tam
illes can be located wheio now theie
is but one. The wagou roads through
out the upper valley aie now in ex
cellent ouudition,but it is a long haul
Irom the town of Hood Kiver from
whence supplies of all kinds are haul
ed, and for this reasou the eleotrio
line must come, liesides, the pro
duce irom this section eut to market
must all be hauled by wagon. Men
with capital bave recently come here
and have hinted thousauds of apple
trees. The dealing uow being pro
secuted vigorously hy these new com
ers will make room foi thousands ot
trees to be set in the fall or next
Descending from the Booth hill in
to the upper valley, the tlrst clear
ing that meets tbe eye is that of J.
P, HHlstrom. He has '200 acres, SO
cleared ; 360 Spitzenbeig and Newtown
trees. Sixty acres of his place is rich
bottom laud, balance woll drained
and excellent tor orobard. The stir
vey for the electric line passes wltb
In 200 yards of his place. He has
laud to sell to bomeseekers, but will
uot sell to speculators. A hydraulic
ram Is taking water from the Bone
ditch, with which he will irrigate hiH
hay lands. His orchard land will need
no water at least until the trees are
of mature age. Mr. IHllstrom has
always kept considerable stock and
along with others Is much hampered
now for pasture on account of tbe
herd law. While this law is the right
thing Iu the lower valley, here where
there isjuuliniited range, it works a
hardship on the at tual settler. Mr.
Hitlstrom is a native of Finland aud
came to the United States in 1807, to
the PMitta eost in IHOil, and settled
ou his butneltead here in 1882
