FIIIST WOMAN OX NOB HIM. Mrs. HuhlmrU Tells Of IToinesteadlnß in F.rtrly Days Before Xortli Yakima Had Been Located. The distinction of being the first j white woman to live on Noli Hill, now so thickly settled and wealthy a district, belongs to Mrs. B). A. Hub hard, or "Grandma" Hubbard, as she i.i affectionately called l>y friends and neighbors. If wag Mrs. Hubbard's huiibund who was the prime mover j i:i building the ditch, long known by h!s name, and now called the Cow lehe and Naches ditch. Mrs. Hubbard H Pennsylvania born tnd has lived in seven states, but likes Washington beat of all. She was fifty years old when she came to Yakima :in:7 had experience in pioneering in California and some of the middle west states previously. California <iid not please her at all and when an acquaintance wrote to her husband of the Yakima country, saying that it looked (rood to him and that surveys for a railroad had been made through the district, John Ilubbard came up to Investigate, Mrs. Hubbard following him two months later. Mr. Hubbard met her with a team at The Dalles and they came across country to Yak ima in the approved method of old times, spending one night with some friendly Indians, the Scott and Sa luskin families, now prominent among tii" Yaklmas. People Laughed at Him. •People here thought Mr. Hubbard was very foolish." she said, "when he picked OUt his homestead on Nob Hill. 'I did think that man Hub hard had some sense, but now 1 know he hnsn't.' said one early set tler, who hud chosen his home on the Ahtanutn. our quarter section lay be tween the streets now known as the cemetery road and the lower Nob Hill road. My husband soon sold eighty acres to other settlers, but for awhile 1 hadn't a neighbor within calling dls tance, and I was never a bit lonely either." At first the Hubbards were obliged to haul water from the Ahtanum, but ns soon as they could get around to it, they put down I well, strieking water at 3T. feet, much to the surprise of their oid Town acquaintances, who had all insisted that there was no water on the hill without going 300 feet or so below the surface. Beginning TTnWwni Dttob. Realizing, of course, that to make the land productive, water must be brought to it, Mr. Hubbard interested sever.l other men in his plan and they set to work on a ditch which should take its water from the Cow iche. They were hue in getting to work and as none of the promoters had much capital. It was necessary to stop every Itttle while and earn bread and butter. Mr. , Hubbard, who was a carpenter, worked :11 his trade during the following winter, and in tha spring, continued the operations i>v the ditch, though it was July be fore the water was finally brought down to the rlubbard homestead. Rabbits Ate First (inrden. The Brat garden ever set out on Nob Hill met with B sad fate, Mrs. Hub bard had grown some cabbages and other vegetables in the house and as <omi as water was in sight, set them outdoors In a snv.iii square of cleared ground back of the house. Her hus band had been too busy yet to get much of the land cleared. She planted peas and they came up promptly. Her cabbages were flour ishing and she was delighted with the prospect of her home garden, when, going out one morning to look at it. there was not a trace of any green thing there. The rabbits had : come down in the night and feasted on her spring vegetables. Her first precaution, before planting next year, was a rabbit proof fence. Grabbing by Chinamen. Most of the grubbing on the Hub ■ bard place and on neighboring tracts ! was done by a Chinaman, Shang I Kow, more familiarly known as John. Mr. Hubbard built him a shack of his own on the place where he slept and did his own cooking. Mrs. Hubbard won her way to the Celestial heart by kindness to him when he was ! sick and by the seemingly surpris ing method of giving him cod liver oil, which he faithfully took. "Even when he wasn't working for us," said Mrs. Hubbard, "I never had ' any wood to carry or water to haul when the Chinaman was around. I don't know what became of him. He always said he was going back to I China. At first he grew wheat on our j cleared land, and later alfalfa, as ! - JOB as people got to know about I that kind of hay. We set out an or . chard, but later it got scaly and my j grandson, Levl Karr, who lives on the old place now, cut it down. He j has just set out a good many acres I of new orchard now." Has Killed Many Snakes. Indians wore constantly passing by, j but Mrs. Hubbard says she was never In the least afraid of them. There ■ were no Indian camping grounds im- 1 mediately on the hill, but the Ynki- j mas were traveling about the coun- | try a great deal. They used to call | I Mrs. Hubbard "Chief Moses." though j for what reason Mrs. Habbard was I never able to discover. Though it . was 2!t years ago when they first moved to the hill, she never saw a rattle shake, she says, on her place, j One day she noticed that the chickens ] Were acting queerly, craning their; necks towards a certain place j In the grass, and went out, to 1 discover a big bull snake, which she 1 killed. It measured 51 inches. While not at all fond of snakes, Mrs. Hub bard has courage enough to kill them. Back in her home country in j Pennsylvania she had some early ex pedience with them. One season when I She was teaching school, forest fires I drove the snakes down from the j mountains and it was no unusual oc currence to find a rattler sunning j himself In the road along which she ■ had to pass. "! don't like them." said Mrs. Hub hard, "but I kill them every time." In a country so new that there is little written history, conversation i With a woman who. like Mrs. Hub- \ bard, has lived the history, is full of j Interest. Although mating eighty: ' years, and suffering some from rheu matism, .Mrs. Hubbard has preserved her mental vigor and bodily strength] iv that wonderful way known to 1 many of the pioneer (roan, Hard work and primitive living. Inirtead f j wearing them out. seems to bring; them to a splendid old age. wralS "Sits 10 ii 01 in Power at Gruiidview to Irrijjnte Ijand Above the Town Cannot be Developed Without It. Engineer Noble is waiting patient ly tor the water wheel to be installed in the Irrigation ditch at Orandview to furnish power for the elevation of water to 400 acres lying above the town. The hydraulic proposition has already been outlined in this paper and the manner in which the power is to be developed from a drop in the ditch. The only drawback is that tho Wheel \r, not forthcoming. It was pur chased in the east. One wheel was .'hipped and has never been heard From since. A second was started and passed St. Paul April 28: It has not yet arrived but it is expected dally. No time will be lost after its arrival I in installing it as the water can be used to good advantage this season REPORT MANY WHJOtti TIIKFTS Estimutecl Fifty Bloydes Stolen Dur in;; the l-ast Six V(okl —Wheel Owners Have Trouble. Bleyole thieves operating In this City during the past six weeks are es timated to have stolen in the. nelgh -1 >. hood of fifty wheels.

A few of the lost articles have been recovred. but the most of the complaints have been marked 11s 'unfound."

In some instances it has developed that nervy people in a hurry have ta ken other people's wheels, rode them I to other parts of the city, and left the means of locomotion to be found" later. The police also say that many of the reported losses are simply ab sent minded wheel owners forgetting while they left their property. The I operations of the present epidemic of bicycle thefts has extended over a period of the last six Veeks, and from outward appearances seems to be the work of an organised gang; Last full the police and sheriff's office broke up a gang of bad boys who Stole many wheels and had a cache on the west side, in which they al tered the stolen wheels so the owners could not recognize his property. NORTH YJUOU HAS LOST OUT iAIURt TO BUILD LINE Of Vakiinn Traus|>ortntioii Company (o over Vull«\v Will Mnko Tlm« Country ut Expense of This Chas. F. Dailey of Granger was in attendance yerterday at a meeting of the advertising committee of the A.- V.-P. exposition, which is preparing a Yaklma county book to be distribut ed at the Seattle fair. A Herald reporter asked him what would be the effect of the present railroad movement in the lower val ley. "It means," paid he "that North Yakima has delayed too long the building of an electric road into our part of the valley, for the present ar rangements shuts out for ever the I proposed interurban system The vari | ous towns below Union Gap would ! have given a hearty welcome and | heavy support to an electric road : which would have bound us with a I very strong tie to North Yakima. As it I* now, every one of our towns will be reached by a steam road and most of them Will be served by two competing roads, Main line rates will prevail everywhere and every com munity will make its shipment* direct from its own Station With the result that many strong town.! will develop ,in the lower valley. At the present time fifty per cent of the fruit crop of Yakima oounty Is grown under the I Sunnyside canal and a large portion ] of it would have reached North Yak- j ima over an electric road. lam told i that the Moxee valley supplies half lof the tonnage at present shipped j from Ninth Yakima, but the build j ing of a steam road through the val j ley means the establishment of a substantial town there which will do its own shipping." Mr. Bailey called attention to the i'aci that out of 1i.0,000 acres of land ; Included In reclamation projects in i Vu! Ima county, 210,000 lie below | Union gap and stat"d his belief that ' a substantial City must of necessity develop in the lower country. To B question from tlie reporter as j to where this city will be the reply | cane, '^Granger, of course." "But Sunnyside and Toppenlsh are a long ■;iy ahead of you." "Yes," said Air. ' alley, "and Yakima City was .nice a '■>■■•■•r place than North Vakimiv, but r"l!r*"ad development reversed the I condlt!-in there, and the railroads are stuijiisiiitis Granger right now." ANOTHER ABTEBIAK WF.1.1, l>rlller Completes Becvrcb for Domestic. Supply tor the Schmidt Home in the \ob Hill District. An artesian well has been complet ed at the Schmidt home on Nob hill, the driller being E. M. Churchill. The well Is 8 6 feet deep, has a strong flow of water and more than ample for do mestic uses. There was no intention in searching for water for irrigation purposes so when the depth named had been reached, and an ample flow, which rose to a considerable height in the well had been attained, it was de cided to search no further. This adds I another well to the many already I bored in the Nob hill sejtion of the country. The value of the underground flow 1 of water to the ranchers is consider able as every homo is with'.n reach of the best kind of water for domestic purposes no matter in what section it is located. It has now been prac tically demonstrated that excellent domestic water can be obtained at no great depth in any part of the Yakima country. Scores of homes are using such and the shallowest wells are In many instances those on the highest ground.
