How shall 'we market our coming strawberry crop? is a question that is worrvinar our growers not a little. And it is a question that concerns us all There is no time to be lost in consider Ine the matter. The Glacier invites correspondence on the subject. If you can't get the members of the union to come together and talk over matters that directly interests them, you can talk to them all through the columns of the Glacier. Mr. 8. E. Bartmess leads in an article full of good advice in this issue. Others are requested ' to cive their views. If anybody has a llan that will unite the strawberry irrowers of Hood River, all will be pleased to read it. The board of state land commission ers of the state of Washington has de cided to submit a recommendation to the legislature asking them to reserve for the public use all natural landings upon the Columbia river that are ac cessible from the shore lands, realizing that very few natural outlets from the Inland to. the Columbia river are avail able. A number of applications are now on tile in- the office ot the com missioners for the purchase of lands naturally udapted for landings, but the board has deferred action upon them until the attention of the legislature is called to the necessity of reserving for all time such landings for the free use of the public. The Dufur Dispatch has enlarged to a seven-column paper. We are glad to note this evidence of prosperity on the part of our contemporary. Oregon Weather. The Weather Bureau at Portland gives a report on Oregon weather of which the following is a brief summary: The mean temperature of the whole state is 4!) degrees: the highest recorded in the state is 109 degrees; the lowest 89 degrees below zero. The former oc curred in Umatilla county, the latter in Klamath county. The average an nual precipitation for the state is 38 inches; the place of heaviest rainfall in the state is at Glenora, the summit of the ;oast range or mountains, in lilla- mook county, where 129 inches, over 1U teet, talis aunually. iNehalem, the same county, is second, with 117 inches. Government Camp, on the slope of Mt. Hood, has 104 inches, and Lang lois. Curry county, where flgs grow, has 102 inches. A peculiarity of distribu tion of rainfall is shown at Cascade - Locks, where 80 inches annually fall, while at The Dalles, 45 miles east, 15 inches, and at Portland, 45 miles west, 46 inches fall.. The least rainfall, which includes melted snow, is reported from Arlington, Gilliam county, where but 8.46 idles annually occur. The places having from 9 to 10 inches of rainfall are Umatilla; Fife, Crook county; New Bridge, Union county; Vale, Malheur county. t The annual rainfall for Hood River is about 35 inches S1nd Jiy the One Union. 1 The prosperity of Hood River valley to a great extent is controlled by the fruit Industry. If our fruit is' of a good quality, ordinary yield ai?U with fair prices, we are accordingly prosperous. A failure in either one of these points and we must suffer. Now, I am not going to say that this condition is as it should be. I believe itj is as it should not lie. No country that depends upon one or two kinds of crops can be pros perous. There may be seasons of pros perity, times, when the crop is of good quality and coincident with that a good yield and living prices, but the time of adversity comes and at the end of a few years the people find that per haps they have held their own, per haps not. Indiana and Ohio, although the far west at one time, never called for outside help because they depended upon a diversity of crops. If their wheat Jailed the farmers could eat corn bread. If their wheat and corn failed they had oats, rye, barley, potatoes, timothy, clover,' etc. These states never yielded the enormous crops of corn that Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska could raise, but, unlike these three sis ter slates, they were independent. There is a hint here that Hood River should take with profit. If this valley is peculiarly adapted to the raising of Clark's Seedling strawberries and Dig red apples, by all means use it for that 5 purpose, but not that exclusively. If was sure that hogs would be a good price next vear it would not be policy to put all my resources into hogs, for they might die with the cholera. . x have heard men say it will pay to raise berries and buy hay; but why not raise berries and part of your hay also, or all of it, and endeavor to cut down this $30,000 drain that goes out from the valley every year to buy that that should be raised here. Of course there are exceptions. Therj) are some places that will not produce timothy and wheat and clover, but there are acres and acres of land that have been lying idle all these years, that might have been producing abundant crops of tim othy and clover without the aid of the Hume, some of which, we are glad, to say, are being opened up this year, and part of the time, at least, they will have water to sell I believe this is out lined as it should be, but it is not yet, and wtiile ttie fact remains, it is to every person's Interest to accept things us they are and use them to the best ml vantage In the first place, we may have a good berry crop; then, in. the second, thequaiity may be excellent. These two conditions are, to a great extent.in the hands of Providence, who, how ever, seems to Hnile first on the most industiious; but the third, more than either of the others, seems to be given over into our hands, and we are alone responsible. This business, vlike any other, should have a head. It does not matter much how many tails. Organ ization. Unfortunately a hard thing for farmers to learn. 1 know it, tor 1 came t hat way. An organization of the farmers by the farmers and for the farmers. How will you make it? All ofvou attend all the meetings. Put vour best men at the head. Don't be afraid of the expense of sending live men' to the most important points of shipment, and then stand uy jour leaders to a man. It would be ruinous to the fruit interests to -commence in discriminate shipments. It will be safe, perhaps, for two, three or halt a dozen to ship independently, but if the maioritv should commence it it will end in disaster. I am speaking for the interest of the valley, for its interest is mine as well as yours. I want our farmers to get the top prices for every thing they raise, and I am willing to pay that price for whatever I may need.- This price can be secured only by systematic co-operation . The farm ers of Hood River valley are sufficient ly intelligent to run their own business in their own way, and I would do it, and I believe the way to obtain the best results is for every fruit grower to stand by the one union. S. E. Bartmess. Life In Texas. Myrtle Springs, Texas, Nov. 17, 1897. "Jupiter Puvius" no longer holds the fort in 'this part of the great vale of tears. He not only is not in it, but is losing prestige every day. The youngest inhabitant can sidle right up to the oldest and confidently whisper in his ear: "Old man, neither you nor 1 ever saw such a drouth ri these parts before." The Drouth king seems thor oughly intrenched and provided for an interminable siege. Jupiter has made forty attempts if he has made one to oust the remorseless monster, but his minions are dispersed as easily as morn ing mist or dew before the gaze of the god of Day. It has been frequently as serted by the papers when a local rain of some pretensions came that "the drouth was broken," but all such re marks were entirely too previous if not sooner. The drouth is on apparently to stay. One mile west of here is. or was, a well known spring which was always known as a never-failer, no mat ter who kept school, or whether they had any school at all. But the Drouth king ordered this spring closed up, os tensibly for repairs, two months ago. I passed by it a few months ago. The creek bed was dry as a bone. I took out my paraphrasing time piece and uttered: There was a little branch flowing nicely In its bed, But that was a long time ago. Now, it has no water at the place of its head At the place where the water used to flow. Day before yesterday was extremely warm; one would have been physically warm enough dressed with only a pair of spurs and a paper collar. The heav ens declared a coming rain. Dark clouds gathered in the north and south with continuous electrical display and a promise of a down pour. But the en emy was there watching every move ment, and at a nod from the Drouth king his cohorts made a dash into the ranks of Pluvius, and then Boreas swept down from the north, and in a few moments' time garments suited to the Klondike regions were in eager de mand. It sprinkled perhaps enough to fill a pint cup over an area of a mile square. Of course under such condi tions the fall turnip crop will fall in- jjloriously short. i-iast uctouer 1 enlisted in the service of King Cotton and was in several en gagements running over a period of two weeks, during which time I gath ered a half bale of the fleecy staple of the South. There were from three to five million of us engaged, and though we lost by death at least 500 a week, the army moved right along and the birth rate of prospective cotton pickers fully kept pace with our losses. One woman in my regiment left the field at sundown and the next morning at 8 o'clock presented the world another one of these prospectives. The continued low price for cotton is moving the producers in away it never did before, and the various "unions" now forming for protection and better, prices next year have a truly revolu tionary ring about them. Some of the resolutions have a decidedly warlike flavor. One of them declares that no creditor shall touch a bale of cotton ex cept at the price given by the associa tion that it shall lay and rot first. Take also the following: We. the Farmers' club of Viesca. do resolve: 1. That we ask the cotton raisers of the South, both black and white, to go into an organiza tion to secure better prices next year. 2. That we adopt a constitution so binding that no member will violate thesume more than once. TJhen follows eleven more resolutions. in which the "lowest limit on cotton is fixed at 9 cents and cotton seed at $10 a ton." According to resolution No. 5S. it would seem that all persons who vio late this constitution will be made into good members by the same principle and speedy method recognized as the sure method for making "good Indi ans." This is not all. These nery dreamers are also passing resolutions defining exactly the terms that land owners must give them in renting lands, the extremists threatening to burn dwellings, barns, business bouses, poison cisterns, wells and water holes. if their demands are not complied with, do the same for editors who refuse to publish their warnings, sow Johnson grass on the farms, etc. Four varying revolutionary notices on one page of a newspaper are before me. One, beaded "JNegro Heritors' league," closes with this pointed resolution: Resolved, further, That any person violating any of theabove rules will be nicely persuaded to leave under penalty of the strap. The fourth resolution of the "Farm ers' Combine" of Johnson county is a long one, elevated in tone, devoid of anarchistic scintillations, but shows the deep rumblings of a monopoly-oppressed people. Pressing into service a part of the words of the renowned doc ument of 1776, it closes thus:- Appealing to that God who rules the desti nies of man and nations for the rectitude of our conduct, pledging to each other our lives, onr fortunes and our sacred honor to be true to this organization against all the powers of corporate greed and speculative syndicates that are or may be formed to wrench from us the heaven-born right to enjoy an adequate return for the labor of our hands. As a partially relieving and conciliat ory measure the board of trade of Tay lor leads orT with an offer to furnish free seed wheat to all who wish to try sucn diversion ana get out ot the well worn rut of cotton culture. "Will you have a change?" said the girl at the hotel the other day after she thought I had labored long enough wiui tne substantial part ot the menu. The question is appropriate right here, and, without waiting a reply, I wil. simply append the following from an antiquated Dallas News of two or three weeks ago, solely and purely by way of dessert: Texas candidly admits that it Is the only state in the Union that has produced a 120 pound watermelon, an onion as big as a cheese uua , it Bwret (nu, m tus uig tin a uwi nog, DumDkin as Die as a molasses barrel, a turn Id as big as a grindstone, a bullfrog with legs as big as base ball bats, a hollow tree containing a ton of honey, a bunch of grapes that weigli- ea ia pour-as, a oeet as Dig as a uiree-ganou jug, a radish as big as a foot ball , and a rooster that could whin a bulldog. Texas humbly makes this confession and throws herself upon the mercy of the country. Parties wishing to purchase water from the Valley Improvement Co. for the season of 1898 are requested to send in their written applications at once, stating bow many inches of water are wanted and where the same is to be used. : ' In order to sell more than 200 or 250 inches of water considerable work will have to be done, and unless we are sure we can sell more than this number of inches next season, we do not wish to incur the expense of. enlarging the ditch. Written applications for the. exact amount to ue used will tie re quired. F. Davenport. Defining a Mugwump. While attending the world's fair in Chicago, Mr. Richard Croker was in troduced to an Englishmen, and in the conversation which ensued something was said about politics. The English man asked Mr. Croker to explain the meaning of the word mugwump. "The mugwump is a new creature in our pol itics," the Tammany chieftain replied. "I am not sure that I can give you the exact definition of the word, but I can tell you what a mugwump is. A mug wump is a man in politics who never votes for anybody, but who is always voting against somebody." Mr.Croker went on to explain that it was the mugwumps who by voting against Blaine elected Mr. Cleveland to the presidency in 1884. He cited other in stances in which mugwump opposition to a particular candidate had elected the man on the opposite ticket. Strayed Two-year-old brindle heifer, star on forehead, left ear slit.

We shall not cut the prices of the so-called "Patent Medicines," as the "cut rate" stores do, and then palm off or persuade you into buying some imitation of them put up by ourselves or some other body, if you must dose yourselves with them; you pay your money and take your choice; but we will give you better medicines under that popular form,' under the rightful manufacturers' labels, at such prices as will convince you that profits are not all made off of physicians' prescriptions.
