The Handy Fruit Sack
It has been thoroughly tired out during the sea
sons of 1913 and 1914, and found to be the most
practical picking sack on the market. A trial
will convince you that it is a money saver. If
you can not get it at your dealers send $1.50 to

"Any campaign to hive wholesalers
or retailers cuah tales of your fruit
will be futile." said Charles Coolidge
Psrlin, of Boston, manager of the di
vision of commercial research for the
Curtis Publishing Co., who addressed
the Hood River apple growers at the
Commercial club Saturday afternoon.
"Successful merchants of today are
no more than order takers. They do
not have to push the product of any
one. If you would have your apples
sold you must conduct publicity cam
paigns that will acquaint the consum
ers with your product."
When asked by E. H. Shepard
whether, if he were in charge of the
advertising of Hood River's apples, he
would preier to pool nis appropriations
with other western districts and adver
tise western box apples in general or
would conduct an individual campaign,
Mr. Parlin emphatically recommended
the latter course.
"Make the consumer acquainted with
your Hood River Spitzenburgs and
Newtowns," he said. "Teach them
the proper times to eat them. Then
They will call again for such apples.
"Even today there are companies
selling blocks of land guaranteeing that
they will come into bearing at some
definite period in the near future. This
land will come into production, and yet
there has been no thought as to mar
keting. If you are going to advertise
western apples in general your cam
paigns must be such that they will
create a demand for this great increase
in production. The apple growers of
the east are already putting into prac
tice your western methods of culture,
They are copying your attractive pack,
They will carefully spray their trees
and greatly improve the. appearance of
their fruit. You will nave tnis to over
come in a general campaign. Person
ally, I think your hope lies in the ex
ploitation of your individual commun
ity. You will probably find enough
people to eat Hood River Spitzenburgs
and Newtowns."
Mr. Parlin. who was accompanied by
R. S. M. Boyd, advertising manager of
the Curtis Publishing Co. Mr. rarlin
advised against the practice of cooper
ative buying.

name of Storm Cliff, according to Mr.
Edgar Locke, who waa in the city last
Friday to protest againat the change in
the present name of Mitchell 1'oint.
Mrs. Locke aaj a that in early das an
old man named Mitchell lued for a
while at the foot of the great crag,
making living by cutting woo, for a
little steamboat.
Mv husband and I own the larger of
the two crags," says Mra. Locke, ' ami
we feel that no one has a riht to
change its name. Grand old Mitchell,
as we look upon it eacn nay, meant
much to us. We gave the tUate High
way Commission a right of way through
the little point, and we will object to
no change in the name of it."
Mrs. Locke state that resi
dents of the community prefer the
name of Mitchell Point.
Accompanied by his wife, R. E.
Kaufman, of Fort Wavne. Ind., who
was the second minister of the local
United Brethren church, spent a por

home of Mr. and Mrs. S. E. Bartmess.
Mr. and Mrs. Kaufman had not been
here for a period of 22 years.
; "The development of the district,
said Mr. Kaufman, who visited the
Glacier office last Thursday, "has been
simnlv amazing. Why. when I loft
here there were but 600 people. There
were no banks, and scarcely any laid
out streets.
It was interesting to hear Mr. Kauf

ana. recall incidents of early days. "'.
remember one night thieves broke into
Dr. Brosius' store. Ihe dogs ot the
Hartley family, who resided then on
the block iust west of the business dis
trict, between Oak street and Cascade
avenue, 'treed' the robbers, and as
they broke to run they stumbled over
some large boulders on a vacant lot
and weie caueht.
Mr. Kaufman took a great interest
in the Indians who werethere, and se
curing his data from them, wrote some
interesting pioneer sketches.

number of others who had participated
in a massacre, was captured by General
Sheridan and all except Dave were

his doing ! ny thing else. Dave inter

Otto T. Wedemeyer, who for more
than a year has been in charge of
music at the Unitarian church, has ac
cepted a Bimilar position with the First
Unitarian church of Portland. He as
sumed his new duties Sunday.
Mr. Wedemeyer, who was formerly
on the professional stage, having been
in Fritzi Scheff'a company for two
years, came here six years ago from
Palo Alto, Calif., to make his home on
an apple ranch. He has been teaching
in Portland for the past year.
In order that, he might come to the
city from his West Side ranch with the
least inconvenience, the local Unitari
ana, when he accepted their offer to
direct their choir, presented him with
a Ford runabout. The main feature of
his local work was the development of
singing by the entire congregation.
Brakeman Was Cured.
F. A. Wootsey, a railroad brakeman
of Jacksonville,' Texas, writes: "I was
down with kidney trouble and rheuma
tism so bad I could hardly get up when
I sat down. I had a backache all the
time and was almost tired of living. I
saw Foley Kidney Pills advertised. I
took some and after a short time 1 was
thoroughly cured and am having no
more trouble." They act promptly and
help kidneys throw posionous waste pro
ducts out of the blood. Thousands have
written similiar letters. For sale by

Isaac Ford of 1401 Cascade Ave., Hood
River. "I suffered severely from kidney
trouble, lumbago and rheumatic pains
I tried plasters and liniments
and various remedies, but wasn't helped
at all. Terrible pains darted in the small
of my back and extended into my ankles
and shoulders. W lienever 1 tried to
stoop, the pain almost killed me and
sometimes I was hardly able to liend
over to fasten my shoes. I had dizz
spells and any exertion tired me. The
kidney secretions were filled with Bed

To be healthy at seventy, prepare at
forty, is sound advice, because in the
strength of middle life we too often forget
that neglected colds, or careless treat
ment of slight aches and pains, simply
undermine strength and bring chronic
weakness for later years.
To tie stronger when older, Veep your
blood pure and rich and active with the
strength-building and blood-nourishing
properties of Scott's Kmulsion which isa
food, a tonic and a medicine to keep your
blood rich, alleviate rheumatism and
avoid sickness. No alcohol in Scott's.
