If vou are contemplating increasing the size of your orchard you
should be careful in the selection of your trees, for without the proper

The trees that we have to offer are not "pedigreed" nor "thoroughbred,"
but are of the type that have produced results that speak for themselves.

- Coad Favors Ruuliy.
The summer vacation is over and the '
school children of Hood River county
are returning to tlreir books. The
Odell, Frankton and Oak Grove schools
began Monday, in order that they
might be closed as early in the spring
as possible. In the spring months,
when strawberries are are being har
vested the young people make ellicient
pickers. With perhaps one or two
exceptions the other schools of the"
county will open next Monday.
Hie 11 inn School will enroll its
pupils Monday, despite the fact that it
is labor day and that a few of the stu-
lents have protested on this account.
However, the work of the day will be
no inure than registration and the as
signment of lessons for the next day.
h. h. (.oad, superintendent of the citv
schools says that the 'parents f
children entering the primury grades
should use every endeavor to have
them enter the schools as soon as pos
sible. No child under the age of six is
allowed to enter the school and none
can enter two weeks after the begin
ning of the term.
Carpenters have been at work on
the school buildmes this week, over
hauling them and constructing shelv
ing and arranging disks. The build
ings are all being fumigated under the
supervision of the city health othcer.

That no student shall be ullowed to
participate in any form of athletic
events unless he or she maintains a
scholarship standard of at least 80 per
cent on weekly markings is the eMeet
of a resolution adopted by the city
school board at its last meeting. It is
asserted that the high school faculty
and the patrons of the school commend
the action of the board. However, a
ruling of the student body lust year
prevented any one of its members fiom
taking iiart in athletics, when the
scholarship fell below a grade of 75
"The pupils of high school will not
be allowed to take any time from their
studies for participating in athletic
events," said Superintendent Coad.
"Nor shall 1 give my consent to any
student to play football unless he sub
mits a written permission from his
parents. 1 have always been fond of
the game of football. 1 have played
myself and the sport has its good qual
ities. However, in the high school
especialy, where it is impossible to
make the members of teams maintain
a strict training, too many students
are injured. I believe the time is
coining when all the high schools and
colleges will take tap Rugby instead of
the more dangerous American game.
The high schools of this state should
make the change." Superintendent
('oad has made an endeavor to get
The Dalles High School authorities to
co-operate with him in the matter of
taking up Rugby.
The members of the city school
board are thoroughly in accord with
the city superintendent s views on
football. Hecause of the danger of
football the student will have to
procure written permits from their
parents in order that the responsibility
will rest with them.

Mr. and Mrs. R. B. Morton, of the
great Hood River apple district of
Oregon, have arrived in Redlands and
will make their home in Yucaipa Val

an apple ranch. In speaking to a
Facts reporter today. Mr. Morton
stated that he had visited the locality
where Redlands now stands, more than
thirty years ago, living here Jor a
period of nine months.
"I remember that there was no Red
lands at that time, the only houses and
settlement being known as Lugonia
and all situated on the north side,"
said he. "I ploughed where the prin

"The marketing conditions of the
Hood River people ore absolutely the
best to be had. A grower of apples is
not allowed to touch his own fruit.
It is all handled by the union or the
packing association. The fame of the
apples from there is known everywhere
for, if you examine a box, or hundreds
of boxes of apples, you will find they
are all alike, no bail apples in the lot,
everyone being just like its fellow

LOCATION FOR HOMES
CONTINUES TO LURE
The Hood River Valley continues the
goal of homeseekers. W. H. Johnson
and J. Cruse made purchusei here last
week and both will move their families
to the community and make jierma
nent homes. The former, who is from
Philadelphia, purchased 20 acres from

$:IO,000. The tract bought is comprised
of about 7 acres of 13 year old stand
ard commercial orchard, Spitzenhurg,
Newtown and Arkansas Black tree,
and the rest is set in rive year old com
mercial trees. The 20 acres bought by
Mr. Johnson has located on it the
handsome Cutler residence, in which
the owner and his family will live.
Cutler Bros, purhcased a 05 acre
tract, of which the 20 acres sold is a
part, from E. J Young three years
ago for a price of $32,000. The greater
portion of the land retained by them
is set in young trees and the remainder
is devoted to the raising of hay. They
will build a bungalow on the land re
tained and make their residence there.
Mr. Cruse, who is from Boise,
Idaho, bought forty three and a half
acres from A. B. Combs in the Willow
Flat country. He paid for the land,
which is in a raw state, the sum of
$5000. He will build on the tract and

COLUMBIA STREET TO HAVE WALKS
NEGRO BEATING WAY
VICTIM OF BRAKEMAN
William Rogers, a negro, suffering
from numerous contusions about the
head and body and who claims that he
was returning from Green River,
Wyoming, hay fields to his home in
Vancouver, Wash., was taken from a
westbound freight train, which ar
rived here about the middle of last
Thursday evening, by Marshal Lewis.
The negro claimed that he had sus
tained his injuries in an encounter
witit three brakmn. He was stealing
a ride and to prevent them from throw
ing him from the train he had given
them all of his money, which amounted
to the sum of $2.50. After the train
left Mosier, he claims that they at
tempted to make him leap from the
fast moving cars. When be refused
they beat him into insensibility. A
number of traveling men, who were
awaiting the local passenger train
here, when they heard his tale of woe,
threatened to mix with the brakemen.
The marshal, however, interfered and
the black boy was taken to the city
prison, where on an examination hv
County Physician Bronson it was found
that his injuries, while painful bruises,
were not serious.

were present from the Heights portion
of the city and the Columbia street
district, where the city government
will conduct a great deal of improve
The street committee, reporting on
the remonstrance tiled at. a prev'oua
meeting by Columbia street residents,
protesting against the proposed con
crete walksjfor the district, aubmittej
the statement that its members, after
an investigation had found that a
minority portion of the property front
age was represented on the remon
strance, and recommended that the
walks be laid. The committee also
stated that the old hoard walks were in
many places inadequate for the needs
of the residents. Attorney A. A.
Jayne, representing'the remonstrating
property owners, spoke at length to
the council. He said that he and a
great many of the residents along the
street considered the old walks sulii
cient to meet the needs of the district
for a number of years. The recommen
dation of the Srteet committee, how
ever, was approved by the council.
In order to connect the side walk on
Cascade avenue with the landing of
the stairway leading down to the
O-W. R. & N. station, the side walk
will be slanted. This will necessitate
a retaining wall at the street curb.
The wall, however, will be constructed
by the railroad company.
The council was presented with
another petition from citizens of the
Heights, who protested against the
sidewalks in Sewer districts No. ti and
7. However, it seems that a majority
of tins residents of that d istrict are in
favor of the work of improvement. A
number of those at the Monday night
meeting , addressed the council and
gave the action toward the street ' and
sidewalk work their hearty support.
Father Pius, of the Catholic church
and Rev. J. 1.. Hershncr both gave it
their endorsement. At the suggestion
of A.W. Onthank, the ordinance, which
provides for the work, will huve an
amendment clause providing fcr cross
J. H. Gerdes, proprietor of the
Gordes House at the corner of Cascade
avenue and Second street was granted
a petition, which asked permission to
move the curb line of the walk to bo
constructed in front of his property
six inches into the street, in order that
he may protect the peplar trees there.
Whether or not the moving picture
shows of the city will be allowed to
open on Sundays is now a question for
the Judiciary committee of the council
to decide. The council was presented
with a petition at the regular, meeting
a week ago trom Monday night which
was signed by 185 citizens and asking
that the council close the electric
theatres. At the last meeting a re
monstrance against the former petition
was presented to the-council. ' 'the re
monstrance was signed by 312 citizens.
The Judiciary committee will check
over the signatures and base their
decision upon the result.
Louis A. Henderson was appointed
by the council to inspect the work to
be done in the construction of the
sewers in Districts Nit. (i and 7. Mr.
Henderson will it.ceive a salary of $3
per day for his work. D. Currier, Jr.,
was an applicant fur the inspection

day night to please her parents, says
the Oregonian. Mr. and Mrs. Kerr,
while favoring the match of the young
couple, both under 21, were displeased
over the informal nuptial knot tied at
Vancouver a, week ago last Saturday.
The bride met Mr. Holbrook while
he was visiting Pnrdham Kimball at
Hood River, lust May, she and her
mother also visiting there at the same
time. In the Rose Festival, Mr. Hol
brook returned to Portund and their
engagement Boon followed. Mrs. Hol
brook came West about a week ago
and Mi.ss Kerr visited her. This
seemed the opportune moment for Mr.
Holbrook, who induced Miss Kerr to
go with him to Vancouver and be
married. They took Mr. and Mrs.
Cunningham with them and, obtaining
a license, were wedded by Rev. J. M.
Cause there, the bride going that
afternoon to the beach to join her
As soon as Mrs. Kerr learned of the
secret ceremony, she began prepara

When the machine approached the
pony, it kicked the fender, bending it
out of shape. Where the two canw
together, the road was very narrow
and the autoists could not get around
and were forced to retreat to Trout
