ARTHUR D. MOE. Publlther.
SubHcrlptlon, S1.50 Per Year.
The result of the city election, in
ipite of the fact that two of the old
administration failed of election by a
narrow majority, is a vindication of
the work of the present administration
in their efforts to provide the city
with good water. If the new admin
istration carries out the wishes of the
citizens and taxpayers, they will
continue the efforts of the present ad
mintration to secure a municipal water
system as! soon as possible. The
council will stand as a majority on this
question in fact, five to one even if
the newly elected member opposes it.
It is to be hoped that it will be unani
mous, even to the mayor.
The unbroken line of victories which
Hood River has achieved in the sever
al apple shows around the country
maintains our reputation. It has got
to a point where we cannot afford to
lose if we would keep at the head.
There Is no reason why we should lose
if our standards are maintained, if we
put up an honest pack and make the
Hood River label a standard of excel
lence, which can be depended upon by
the buyer. The quality of the Hood
Kiver apples cannot be excelled, or
even equalled, but the pack is being
closely imitated by our competitors.
It is this reputation which is of the
utmost value to us in a commercial
way. The heavy increase of acreage
all over the Pacific Northwest in ap
pies must make some difference in
time in market values. It is our ex
cellence in quality and pack which will
be depended upon more and more in
the future to give us the extra price
for the apple which is the profit. It
will be the best apples that will have
the first sale, and the best apples
which will be in demand for the high
priced trado. An extra ten cents
box adds a profit of GO an acre to the
grower who can produce 600 boxes per
acre, and adds $f00 an acre to the
value of his land. Let us maintain our
reputation and keep at the head of the
It is rather a hard and diflicult prob
lem to reconcile Jim Hill to bis old
prophecies with those of his latest ones.
He made theaiiiuniticcineir two or three
years ago that dire cala nity would fall
upon the American people If the rail
roads didn't spend several billions on
expensive improvements. There was
not anywhere nuar that mm used in this
country, and yet we escaped tho dire
Now that we again have bumper crops
and reasonable prospects, Mr. Jim tells
us that the railroad companies are not
ordering anything worth mentioning in
the way of additional equipment or im
provements. He also predicts a icries
of lean years to come, with many unem
ployed and thefcurtailnient of produc

Bo far, Jim't gloom baa not overtaken
us, but now ho claims that we are living
too high and that the "dire calamity"
will surely overtake us in the course of a
few moons.
Fortunately, for us, there are those
who are always watching for the pot to
boil over, but it even has not come to a
boil, so tho anticipated calamity never

"No," said Mrs. Jordon, quite
grouchy, "I can't say that Julia Hop
kins is really a smart and intelligent
woman. Of course she sings well and
reads heavy novels and all such, but
she thinks too much of her personal ap
pearance to be really brainy. Why?
We went bathing the other day to

was nearly struck dumb with the way
she made herself up. No, not exactly
painted, but she told me confidentially
that she used a special kind of face
cream under her powder during the
winter months and a cooling lotion in
the hot weather, and she also uses
three kinds of hair tonic, and oh! I
don't know what all. And when we
had our shampoo - you should have seen
the extra hair she put on.
Mr. Jordan dressed tor dinner and
waited calmly for the finish of Pis
w'fe's sartorial preparations and
smiled whimsically with his eagle eye
on the dressing table before which his
wife sat. It held uuite an assortment
of dainty boxes and bottles and Josiah
knew lull well that there were many
more tucked away in various drawers
and cupboards and out of the way
places that he knew nothing of. He
kept on watching Mrs. Jordan smiling

pink powder, applied a white powder
to her forehead, nose and throat,

tne untuning toueties to tier hair with
a special curling iron and pinned on
six or eight pull's und a froid. While
Hho was pinching and pressing, her
lips to perfect their shape, Josiah, the
more man, indulged in a speech.
"My dear," SHid Josiah gently, "why
do you find fault with Julia Hokpins
fur 'making-up,' and what is the
difference between her and other
women? Hvery time you try a new
cosmetic dodge you tell me that a
the women I know are doing it, and
you seem to be going some in the
same direction of facial decoration just
at the present time. Why is it so
much worse for Julia to do such things
to her face and hair than for you to
lie doing the very same thing?"
"Josiah Jordan," stammered Mrs.
Jordan with all of her dignity, "if 1
hadn't any more horse sense than ou
have, I would certainly hide it as much
as possible. Of course, 1 use but very
little powder. The woman who

Credulous Bucktoss.
lllnuu r.uektoss, a West Carrollton
farmer, used to eoiue in to Iayton
every Saturday afternoon to shop, and
the boys at the feed store would take
many n rise out of him ou account of
his faith. He'd believe anything-accede
to the tallest propositions. One
Saturday, to see If he couldn't shatter
Hiram's proverbial faith, a wit said:
"Speaking ot buffaloes, Mr. Bucktoss,
did I ever tell you that when I was
out west 1 seen a buffalo up a tree eat
ing grapes?"
"Indeed!" said Hiram. He didu't
even look a bit startled, but only In
terested and pleased. "Indeed:"
"'flint's what 1 said." repeated the
wit. "W hy, Mr. ltucktoss, didn't you
never see no buffaloes up trees?"
"No," faltered lllrain. "No, 1 can't
say I ever did." Then be brightened
up. "Hut reoficii beard," ho added,
"how very fond they are of grapes."
