It takes a strong imagination to believe in some of the promises maile
by some sellers of shoes. Things that you know are impossible are offered
as glibly as the most reasonable propositions. We are not selling shoes
for our health nor do we believe any one else is. Hut we know that our
prices are as low as honeBt qualities will permit.

A very pleasant feature of the visit
of the Glacier nan and hia better half
with hia brother, H. G. Moe, and wife,
at Dayton, Wash., was the trip through
eattarn Washington, from Walla Walla
to Spokane in the latter'a Haynea
"six." 'lo beat the railroad train into
Spokane from Dayton by five hours,
reflects much credit upon the skillful
driving of "Harry," the efficiency of
bia ear, and the wonderful help'of the
new atate road which ia being built
and which baa many completed stretch
es in which the ear glidea along as
smoothly aa a Pullman and "eats" up
the miles as fast aa the crack limited
The road from Walla Walla north ia
excellent until Columbia county is
reached, and then alow time must be
made to ease the car over the old, un
even turnpike, which baa been good
enough for the farmers and horse
drawn vehicles since the country waa
settled. Leaving Dayton on the way
north, the road has been improved for
gome distance, but tne hills one has to
make, up over dividea and down across
canyons from one to two thousand feet
deep, occasionally striking a 25 per
cent grade, most of it the old indiffer
ent country road, makes traveling slow
compared to the time made whenever
the new state road waa encountered.
Yet a good, powerful car does not
"fret" at tbe grades if the track is
reasonably smooth, and we made good
Dropping down for several miles into
the Snake river canyon, we crossed the
Central ferry, and then began the long
climb up over the summit, where an
altitude of probably 4,000 feet was
reached, and where one could see the
Blue mountains to the south and Step
toe Butte to the north, a distance of
perhaps 100 miles. Over this vast
stretch of country one gazed over a sea
of golden grain, thousands and thou
sands of acres, broken here and there
by plowed fields of summer fallow,
which will be put in grain next year,
while this year's grain fields will take
year s rest.
As we neared Colfax the roads were
better, and from that city to Spokane
the drive was magnificent. In that
section of the state the higher altitude
was noticed in the green fields, there
being but a few fields of early ripening
grain that was tinged with yellow.
Much of the road is being macadam
ized between those two cities, and its
popularity is attested by the numerous
cars constantly on the road (most of
which, by the way, are rords).
Spokane looks prosperous; in fact,
more so than any of the coast cities we
have seen this year. No doubt this is
due in a measure to the good grain
crop and prospective good prices. Still,
we were informed that business in gen
eral is not as good as it has been.
The return trip was made by way of
Pomeroy, where we visited Dr. Clark
Black and family, and called on Mr.
and Mrs. Koy Knettle, all companions
of the Oriental trip. Around Pomeroy
are the best looking grain fields in
eastern Washington. Dr. Black has 33
acres of Hungarian bearded wheat
which will go from 55 to bO bushels to
the acre. He brought the seed from
Hungary two years ago, and from the
small planting he secured seed enough
for his held this year. It has tested
out to be of a superior quality, and the
enormous yield the stand of which ia
hve to six feet, with beads four to
eight inches long has made him very
enthusiastic over It. He will plant
1,000 acres of it next year. A sample
bunch of thia wheat may be seen in the
Glacier office.
The hot winds in June injured consid
erable of the grain around Dayton and
Walla Walla, but as a whole, eastern
Washington, especially in the higher
elevations, will have a bumper crop.
In Dayton we had a very pleasant
visit with Rev. W. C. Gilmore and
family, who expect to visit Hood River
next month.
From the Mosier Bulletin
Yesterday afternoon County Judge
Gunning and Roadmaster Sharp came
down from The Dalles and accom
panied Chas. Bennett, road supervisor
in this district, over the road leading
up the mountain to Hood River, view
ing it with the idea of making much
needed repairs and alteration. The
county oflicials ordered cut outs to be
made, and all dangerous places in the
road to be fixed. The county officials
ordered the work to be commenced
Monday, and have left Mr. Bennett in
charge to use his own discretion as to
what is to be done.
At this time there will be no grading
of the road, but cut outs will be made,
gravel spread, and some shooting of
rocks. The gravel to be used will be
obtained from a pit near the Wasco
county line. No certain amount has
been ordered expended, so it seems
certain that considerable work will be
done to improve this road as much as
possible, and make it more passable for
tourists until the highway is completed
between Mosier and Hood River.
As a suggestion from Governor
Withy combe and S. Benson, Mark A.
Mayer took this matter up with the
county court, and they have acted
It is now up to Hood River county to
get busy with their part of the road,
and complete this temporary link be
tween Mosier and Hood River. When
S. Benson was here recently, he made
the statement that this was the worst
road he had ever been over, and was
certainly in a dangerous condition.
Now that Wasco county has at last
commenced to do something in regard
to tne nignway, although this part is
only temporary, Hood River should
meet her at the border line and do her
share, as the benefits to be- obtained
are certainly mutual.
Alleged RisqueDance Brings Fine

before Municipal Judge Howe. After
examination of witnesses atthe trial.
Judge Howe declared that the city bad

tion of. City Attorney, Wilbur, a fine of
five dollars was suspended, Mr. Howe
stating that he doubted if there had
been any immoral intent on the part of
young Imholz.

tricts, the east basement room of the
high school building is being completed
and the commercial department will be
located in this room. The course of
study for the high school department
will be issued in a few days.
From indications, interest that is at
present being dwplayled and the latent
talent that may be developed, the pro
posed activities of the muiscal depart
ment of the Hood River Woman's Club
bid fair to eclipse the coming year any
thing ever undertaken by that organiz
ation. The club's first Wednesday af
ternoon September meeting, when the
regular work will be resumed after the
summer vacations are over, will be de
voted to a lecture on musical history
and a study of the lives of composers,
all illustrated by musical selections.

will take the form of concerts or re
citals, the program to be rendered by
guests or club members, themsevles.

inent guests in the valley will appear.

by Prof. F. X. Arena, conductor of the

versity, will deliver a lecture. Prof.
Cady owns a Pine Grove ranch. Mrs.

under the supervision of Mrs. C. H.
Henney, who will thus supplement her
excellent work in the public schools.
Jt Is our hope, members or the
club say, "to endeavor to maintain a
better standard of music in the homes
of Hood River.'
Pupils' recitals will be given once a
year. The pupils of any local teacher
may participate, and the names of both
teachers and pupils will appear on the
The musical department is open to
members of the Woman's Club. New
members may join by paying the regu
lar club dues. Men are admitted as
associate members, paying annual dues
of one dollar.
Members of the Hood River Cornet
band, the music rendered by which is
of a high standard, as those who have
heard recent programs rendered on the
streets can attest, is planning weekly
open air concerts. Thomas Hill, known
in numerous northwestern cities as a
band leader of ability, has been work
ing earnestly in his training of the
members, whose willingness to work
and persevere have caused the develop
meni oi some excellent musicians.
