Basketball was the center of athletic
interest here during the past week.
On Wednesday evening of last week a
double header game was played at the
old Armory building. The Hood Kiver
High School team playing White Sal
mon and the local "Collegiates" play
ing Odell. The local high sc ool lads
trimmed White Salmon to the tune of
51 to 9, while Odell lost to the "Col
legiate.;" by a score of 27 to 2. On
Friday evenii g tha "Whirlwind" team
from The Dalles came here and played
Odell at the gymnasium there. The
score was 30 to 23 in favor of the vis
itors. On Friday afternoon the local high
school team played the Jelferson High
School team in Portland, losing by a
score of 15 to 30. The Orcgonian has
the following report of that game:
"Hood River High Scnool basketball
team was defeated yesterday afternoon
at the Jelferson High gymnasium, 30
to 15, by Jefferson High. 'Ihe latter
team started the game with practically
its second lineup, but when the total
was only 12 to 10 at the end of the
first half the regular team was put in
the field."
During the first half, the local team
lined up us follows: Shay and John
son, forwards; Young and Sheppard,
guards; and lilagg, center. During
the second half Franz took the place
of Johnson, Lewis that of Young, and
Morse that of Blagg.

A letter received last week by Mrs.
W. J. iiaker from Geo. H. Himes, as
sistant secretary and curator of the
Oregon Agricultural Society, brings
out the fact that the Hood River Val
ley's first trees were set out a number
of years before the Civil War. M
Himes, writing from Portland, said:
"Accept my thanks for the letter
you wrote, which appeared in the Gla
cier of yesterday, relating to the early
commercial orchards in Hood River
Valley. 1 know what you say is sub
stantially true, as with Mr. S, F.
lilythe 1 went through the orchards
you mention in 18S8. I think the
Bradford you mention was 1'. F. in
stead of W. H. 1 here were three of
the Bradford brothers whom ! knew
well, Daniel F., Putnam F., and Allen
G. ; and 1 know that Putnam F. Btarted
a commercial ot chard in Hood River
Valley. tie formerly had a prune
orchard near this city. There were a
number of small oichards in Hood
River Valley prior to 25 years ago,
among them several devoted to peach
raising; but none that could be strictly
classed as a commercial orchard in any
true sense. W. P. Watson raised a
little fruit on the Coe place, and the
first trees on that place were set out
in 1858 or '59, as 1 was informed many
years ago. But all such cases were
for the purpose of family use, in my
judgement. Perhaps you can ascertain
who set out the first orchard for family
purposes in Hood River Valley. 1 can
not tell, but believe it was Nathaniel
Coe, father of Capt. H. C. Coe. 1
shall have occasion to write to Capt.
Coe, in Southern California, in a short
time, and then 1 will ask him about

The funeral of the late Andrew W.
Lane, who died at the home of his son,
L. L. Lane, Thursday, was held Mon
day afternoon. Mr. Lane was 8 years
of age, having been born in Fountain
county, Indiana, February 11, 1830.
He crossed the plains to Oregon in
1853, locating first near Salem, but
later moved to Linn county, and en
gaged in wagon making in Harrisburg.
From Harrisburg he went to Spring
field, Lane county, living there until
187K, since when he has made his home
with his son in The Dalles. Mr. Lane
was father of 13 children, six of whom
are living. They are

One of the most interesting stories
in the March number of the Sunset
Magazine is "Hagar's Son" written by
LeRoy Armstrong. Mr. Armstroig
has taken for the "motif" of his story
ihe benefits that would be .derived
from the building of the Columbia
River boulevard. The entertaining
descriptions of the bit of fiction are
true to the wonderful scenery of the
Columbia and all Hood Kiver people
are familiar with it.
The plot ot the story attracts the
reaner as ne progresses and creates a
sympathy. A son of Hagar, whose
father has left to him a long narrow
strip along the Columbia river, iso
lated and uncultivable, after receiving
the news of the will and its provisions
to the effect that he must live on it for
five years to acquire title, leaves bis
Indiana home, and builds himself a
home on the mountainous tract.
The father has given to each of the
half brothers and legitimate sons a
section of fertile fruit land to the east
of the narrow strip. While entertain
ing three hunters, who happen upon
his self built home, among the crags,
but with one of the most wonderful
views in the world, the suggestion of
a road, to connect the east and west of
the continent, is dropped. lshmael
visits the Valley town. He buys pro
visions from the half brothers, wno
will trade with him but who will nut
take his hand. Later he unfolds to
them his plan of the road. He is re
fused support.
A woman, a sister of one of the
hunters, who is wealttiy, hears or him
and becomes interested and by her aid
the road is completed at once. Ismael
and the woman marry.
In speaking of Mr. Armstrong and
the story the Sunday Orcgonian said :
"That the construction of 20 miles
of road over the Cascades, connecting
the present road from Hood Kiver to
their base with the roau constructed to
Sandy, in Multnomah county, would
comprise one of the most important
undertakings in that part of the state
is the opinion of LeRoy Armstrong, of
Hood River, who was in Portland yes
terday. "Mr. Armstrong considers that if
this stretch of road were in operation
Oregon would have not only one of the
linost scenic highways in the country,
hut one that would attract tourists
from all sections. Mr. Armstrong is
an enthusiast on the subject of good
roads and has embodied his idea in a
story which appears in the March
number of the Sunset mugazine. In
this I'tory lshmael Isherwood conceives
the idea of constructing such a high
way and succeeds in interesting a rich
woman in the enterprise. Thj scenes
depicted are true to the Columbia
River country."

THIS new two-cylinder 10 II. P. Roadster Rur.abau1. cj:,t3 to buy, doi'S as much work,
goes just as far, almost as fast, at half the cost of a four-cylinder car. More than two
cylinders would be unnecessary and expensive. Speed, 150 miles an hour.
Simple Construction. The design and operation of this runabout are so simple to under
stand that anyone can learn to drive it in fifteen minutes. No matte how inexperienced', you
can take care of it in fifteen minutes or less each day. Sturdily built, of first-class material,
with the best two-cylinder opposed heavy duty motor ever made it is designed to give constant
and economical service for years.
Style. Bristling with new features its stylish flush side fore-door torpedo body delight
fully finished in dark blue, light blue wheels, is the prettiast design of the season. Plenty of
leg room, with comfortable tilted cushions and large fuel capacity make the "Messenger" ideal
for touring.
Easy to Drive. One lever controls all speeds. Push it ahead to engage low speed -push
it further ahead and you have high speed. Pull it back to reverse. That's all there is to it. That's
why so many physicians, merchants and salesmen use this car. That's why it is so popular as a
ladies' car.
Economy. The Maxwell "Messenger" holds economy records by the score -nonstop
and endurance records, too. It has proved in public test that it can do three times the
work in half the time at half the cost of a horse and buggy. It increases earnings where used
in a business way.
21,000 Owners. Endorse It. Over 15,550 physicians, and 2,1:55 firms in Ki7 different kinds
of business, some using as many as 35, employ Maxwell cars. All enthusiastically endorse its
reliable service. Not a weakness has ever developed not a mechanical change has been neces
sary in five years, since this Maxwell was first introduced.
Price. At $710, f. o. b. Hood River, the Maxwell "Messenger" offers wonderful value.
Equipped with top, gas lamps, generator, magneto, it is ready for touring without a penny of
added expense. We want you to see it, ride in it, learn how simple it is to drive. Note its style,
test its speed, and you will be convinced that the Maxwell "Messenger" is the classiest and
lowest priced high-grade runabout on the market.
