Unhonored and unwept, the moon
shine contents of several keg, demi
johns and casks as well as innumerable
bottles, were poured forth solemnly
last week by hherilt Johneon ana a
coterie of deputies at a storm sewer on
Oak street. The activities of the sher
iff and his deputies, who went unsmil
ingy about the obsequies, attracted the
attention of a number of pedestrians.
It waa an occasion of gloom. Not a
smile gleamed, and no sparkle glinted
in a spectator's eye. The fumes from
the liyuor as it gurgled down the storm
sewer permeated the atmosphere and
stole its way subtly into the nostrils of
the onlookers. Such a moment did
this climax of the occasion produce I
The men looked thoughtful. Somebody
in a gentle whisper recalled that in
days that are gone forever, a man
could heat his inner man with a Tom
and Jerry on a winter day. And yet
nobody smiled. The sheriff and his
deputies completed their task, and the
crowd dispersed noiselessly, apparent
ly cogitating over past privileges.
Some have gently censured Sheriff
Johnson for his failure to make an an
nouncement of the booe destruction.
Many notes would have enjoyed a
sniff, he was told. He might have
made the occasion pregnant with drama
instead of doleful. One citizen was so
frank as to tell the sheriff that he
needed a press agent. He miitht have
had his pirture in the metropolitan
dailies, had he rtaged properly the de
struction of the contraband. Not even
newspaper men knew of the liquor de
struction. One of them happened on
the remains of the tragedy. His nose
knew that something had happened a

invettigations developed the episode.

WAGNER SENDS STORY'
OF VALUABLE APPLE
The following clipping, a dispatch
from Ferrell, N. J., from the Phila
delphia public Ledger, is about a won
A wire cage has been constructed
around the "$5,000 apple tree" in the
orchard of Lewis Mood, a farmer in
South Harrison township, Gloucester
county. Mood recently rold a branch
from tbii particular tree, producing an
entirely new variety of apple, to one
of the big nursery firms of the country
for what is said to be a record-breaking
price for this fruit.
The patient public will have to wait
for two years or more before it can
learn verv much about the Mood apple,
aa it ii being guarded with the great
est secrecy, ; indicated by thejerection
of tho stout wire cage entirely around
the tree. All that is known so far is
that it is a red apple of exceptional
site and sweetness. There is no other
apple just like it anywhere in this
country so far as horticultural experts
have been able to determine.
This nw vsriety will be subjected
to the most exhaustive testa under the
various climatic and soil conditions
throughout the United States before
the nursery firm which has bought it is
willing to place it upon the market.
Orchard science, as applied through
top budding, will make it possible to
produce the new fruit in quantities
large enough for experimental purposes
within a year or two.
The new apple is purely an accident
of nature being what is known to fruit
growers as a sport from 'one of the
ordinary varieties. Mood noticed sev
eral years ago that one of the branches
of a particular tree in his orchard waa
hearing an apple that was 'different
both in color and flavor from tha fruit
of other limbs on the same tree. He
took off some budB and started other
treee. The big red Mood apples were
in such demand among hie customers
that last season he sold f 75 worth of
apples from the original tree alone.
A representative of a nursery com
pany learned that the New Jersey
farmer bad an apple that waa attract
ing attention and he called to see Mr.
"I bad thought cf trying to put out
this new apple myself," said Mood in
talking of his "find." "I put a price
on the apple that 1 thought would keep
those fellows from pestering me about
selling. They got the head of their
corrpary bere to look over the apple
and to see the tree. After several
conferences we finally tains to terms.'
Just what these terms are is set
forth in a bill of sale and surveyor's
re-ord of the exact location of the
tree, which have teen filed in the
! Gloucester count clerk s ofnee at
Woodbury. Even the particular
branch of the tree is designated in una
Accordirg to the agreement on file,
he has received $1,000 in cash and is to
pet $4 (M) in "royalties" at the rate
or" two cents for each bud that is taken
from th original branch r any trees
cevelor-ed from it. These buds will be
grafted upon other stock to r'odue
tree of the new variety.
"Five thousand dollars seems like a
b g rrice for aa apple." remarked one
m -informed rurseryman regarding
Mood's sale, "but in these days a new
apt le of exceptional quality, colcr and
s re is worth a small fortune to anyone
who has tbe courage and organization
to introduce it to tbe cation."

DEATH TAKES MRS.
M. SUE HENDERSON
Mrs. M. Sue Henderson, pioneer of
the mid-Columbia, died at her home on
Paradise Farm Monday morning. Mrs.
Henderson had been ill for some
weeks. It was thought for a time
that she would rally and recover. She
was born at The Dalles. Her father,
J. H. Mosier, founded the neighbor
ing town of Motier.
Mrs. Henderson had lived in Hood
River since early days. She saw the
town develop from a village of a few
inhabitants to its present size. She
saw the fruit industry develop from
its earliest phases. Th late Dr. W.
L. Adams, former husband of Mrs.
Henderson, held a prominent place in
Oregon civic and public life. He was
a pioneer booster of this district. Dr.
Adams was a practitioner here in the
early days and operated one of the val
ley's first drug storea.
Mrs. Henderson is survived by a
daughter, Mrs. E. Banks Mortimer, a
brother, J. N. Mosier, of Mosier, and
two sisters who reside at W alla Walla.
John Leland Henderson, the husband
of a later marriage, who was a local
pioneer, is an attorney of Tillamook.
Tbe surviving sisters are Mrs. Alice
Faueette and Miss Lydia Mosier. One
grandson, little Billy Adams Mortimer,
Funeral services were held yesterday

ever keen in activities of those who
bad most to do.with the development
of Hood River.
Mrs. Henderson was 67 years of age.

RED CROSS NURSE
The annual Red Cross election is to
be held at the Chamber of Commerce
at 2 o'clock Wednesday, January 3.
All who have paid a Red Cross mem
bership are entitled to vote.
The nominating committee is C. H.
Vaughan, Dr. L. L. Murphy, W. H.
Boddy, Mrs. F. A. Cram and E. O.
Blanchar. Full reports of the chap
ter's activities for the past year are
to be made.
The annual report of the public
health nurse now in the hands of the
Red Cross committee reveals a very
full and serviceable year on the part
of the Public Health Association. Bare
statistics cannot describe the sympa
thetic and human side of the nurse's
work, but nevertheless the statistics of
the work are surprising as .well as
Among the many things accomplished
by tbe nurse are the examination of
4288 school children. In this number
physical defects ranging from slight to
serious conditions, were found in 2.763.
A very important feature and one of
general interest is that on the recom
mendation of physicians following a
report by the nurse 135 children were
excluded from school temporarily for
The public health nurse has found 16
cases of tuberculosis and made 45 vis
its to such patients.
Clinics for children have been held
at which 329 children have been ex
amined. At these clinics young and
prospective mothers are given instruc
tion in the care of children and of
themselves. The work is cutting down
the death rate among infanta. It has
a definite relation toward saving the
lives of mothers, 20,000 of whom it is
estimated died in the United States
last year due to ignorance of proper
methods of caring for themselves at
the time of maternity.
We have in Oregon a very fine crip
pled children's law providing the nec
essary care, surgical and medical, for
all cirppled children. This work is un
der the U. of O. medical school and
the children are cared for by the best.1
surgeons on the coast, namely Dr.
Akin, who has his service at the Good
Samaritan hosptial. Dr. MeClure, who
has his service at the St. Vincent's
hospital, and Dr. Dillihunt, who is In
charge of the work and has just com
pleted his service at St. Vincent's hos
pital and will have his next service at
tbe Emamiel hospital.
Since May 1, 1922, 10 crippled chil
dren from Hood River county have re
ceived surgical and other care. We
have seven more crippled children who
are waiting to be cared for. Of this
number two are to receive care very
soon, one by the Woman's Union of
the Riverside church and the other by
the Women's Relief Corps of Hood
Sixty visita were msde where nurs
ing care was given. Where there is a
member of the family who is capable
of giving care she is taught how tc

by the doctor. In this way she is en
