Far Fumed Hood Kiver.
By D. A. Ilannu In Chicago Packer. Hood River, Oregon, June 15.-As a fruit growing district, this valley lias become famous for its Yellow Newtown Pippin apples and strawberries. The apples are almost all exported, while the strawberries are shipped to the Mid dle West, and on account of their tine color and keeping qualities they com mand the very highest market price of any shipped to the Kastern markets. Last season there were 'J5 cars of ber ries shipped East. The crop this season is estimated at la cars. They are now being shipped Kast at the rate of 10 cars per day. AWM.E ACRKAOK INCREASING. There are estimated to be 125 cars of exKrt apples. The new acreage con stantly coming in will cause the crop to increase each year. The Spitzenburg apple is also a great favorite here as one of the export apples. The packing if done by the Davidson Fruit company and the Hood Kiver Fruit Growers' union. The latter has 175 members, mostly berry growers and handles about one half the crop. IDEAL FRUIT COUNTRY. HxhI Kiver has about 1200 people and is located on the hills of the Columbia river at the junction of the Hood river. It has fine climate and good water. The success of the fruit business is partly credited to the fact that the farms are all small, in some cases three or four acres. There are no large farms or orch- aius nere. FAMOUS HOOD RIVER BERRY. The Hood Kiver strawberry has be come famous on account of its firmnees, high color and keeping qualities, which enables it to be shipped long distance without loss. During the past season there was shipped From Hood Rivei about90cars, bringing netreturnsof over 1125,000 to growers. The usual averant net to growers has been for two yeai ..I 1 .l . nuuui per crate. Remarkable success has been obtained in realizing large returns from small pleie-of ground. F. O. Church from a space of 1J acres received gross for hie crop $802. 1). S. Crapper has harvested irom 4g acres t,;ioO crates, worth about $2 per crate. II. C. Hengst from acres, 400 crates. Mr. Trenorof White salmon, realized f(00 from a little over l' acres in strawberries, without irriga tion. 8. C. Zeigler, of White Salmon. (00 crates from 3j acres his receipts were f v. Jt,. Miner in one day shipped 100 crates from 10 acres, and for the season 2,220 crates. William David son from J acre 1C9 crates, worth about 2 per crate. Markely Bros, gathered 200 crates from 1 acre set the previous July. A. N. Kahm cleared $1400 from 7 acres in 1901. In 1902 he gathered 1,325 crates worth $2 each. Aaron Butts on 15 acres, 2,500 crates. E. D. Eatinger on 143$ acres, 1,978 crates. C. G. Met calf, 185 crates of fine berries from 2-3 of an acre. SUCCESS IN APPLES. The apples of Hood River have be come as famous as its berries. There is a very long growing season, freedom from extreme heat and cold, and abun dance of rain or water for irrigation. The apples are remarkable for size, qual ity, color and long keeping qualities. The highest prices are obtained for these appleB of any raised in any portion of the United states. It is one of the few sections of the United States where the Newtown Pippin and Spitzenburg meet with perfect success. Siillieient acreage has been planted to yield in a few years 500 carloads of thie fruit annually. H. l'rigge from 1 j acres of apples, several varieties, sold $735 worth. Bears & Porter gathered from 2?i acres in 1901, 1,414 boxes of apples worth 98 cents a box, and from same trees m IWZ, 2,700 boxes. From 19 Red - Tioxes at n.35 for $253.75. From 8 Bald win trees gathered 104 packed boxes. sold for $104 this is at the rate of f 1 ,200 per acre. C. Dethman from 5 acres in 1901 sold $1,500 worth, in 1902 his crop was 2,300 boxes, worth $2,000. AND CHERRIES, TOO. Cherries of all kinds are very success ful and profitable. Are used also exten sively for canning. Growers realize from 5 to 7 cents per pound net. From one tree of the Royal Ann H. T. Williams realizes 400 pounds annually, which he sells for $20. From 4 trees, same variety, Robert Rand realizes $80. E. Locke has trees producing still more abundant ly. One hundred trees can be planted per acre. The cherry is exempt here from bursting. OTHER FRUITS. The pear is an unqualified success. No blight is known, and every variety can be grown with certain assurance of health. W. J. Baker in 1001, gathered 10 tons of Bartlett pears from about 2 acres ; in 1902 nearly 20 tons. E. Locke from Beurre D' Anjou trees, an average of 15 boxes per tree. This is over 1500 bushels per acre. Mr. Byrkett of White Salmon gath ered, in 1902, from 2 pear trees, 75 bushel boxes of pears. M. Stranahan has gath ered over j ton of prunes from one tree. Alfred Boorman gathered over 100 crates of blackberries from less than of an acre. Mr. Bailey, jr., realized $90 from acre of blackberries. Tomatoes are successful and in great demand by canners at $10 per ton. A conservative estimate gives a yield of 18 or more tons per acre. Hood River Valley. Oregon City Courier. There is no state in the Union that has wore diversities in climate than has the state of Oregon. There is no spot of equal size withiu the limits of the I'imea Mates more wiaeiy Known than Hood River valley. The Hood River strawberry lias become juxtly famous for Its beauty, its shipping mutinies and Ita palatable ricuness. It was the pleasure of the editor of the Courier to spend a couple of days the nast week in this valley, ir valley it can reallv be called, to meet some of the neonle who live there, and to learn something of the remarkable industry that has made of this land a Garden of Kden whose wealth-producing prop erties can hardly be equaled in any land. Hood river is a mountain stream in all the word Implies. It has its mine in Kliot irlacier, on the northern slope of Mount Hood. Eliot glacier stands 300 feel high and shows to the mirth a ruiriied face of ice on which the sun has shown for countless eons of time without diminishing its size. From its bases there pours a stream t ice water, cold and pure as crystal. This stream is the source of Hood river. It is 9,000 feet above the sea. Twenty miles to the north as the crow flies is the Columbia river. Hood river turn lib's and roars and gathers breadth and denth as it rushes to the Columbia and becomes not only a mountain torrent but a goodly mountain river whose roar can be heard many miles away. Just think of it, w ith a water course that is not more than forty miles in length, counting all its meandering. Hood river has a fall of fl,000 feet. The Hood River valley has broken up land, much of it covered with liould ers and the debris of glaciers of a by gone age. I'ntil a few years ago this land was considered practically worth less for anything except grazing. Then is very lilt'ie rain in the summer sea son aud not overly much at any season of the year. A few years ago it was discovered that the finest of strawber ries could be grown In this valley and that many kinds nf fruit could be grown to greater perfection there than at any other point on the coast. Hood River valley lies right in tiie heart of the Cascade mountains, and the towering peaks of the godly range girt it ou every t-ide. While the Hood River ap ples are known in almost every land, and are sold for more money in the city of London, England, than any other apple that is shipped to that market, yet it is the Hood Riverstraw berry that has given the valley its rep utation and made of Its broken uplands and barren hillsides a golionda richer than the dreams of Aladdin. In 1901 there was shipped from Hood River valley 40,000 crates of strawberries; in 1902, 55,700 crates, and we are told that in this good year of our Lord 1903, the st rawlierry season of which la now in full blast, that fully 100,000 crates of this delicious fruit will be sent forth to the markets of the world. When it is understood that each crate of straw berries nets the grower $1.(55 clear profit, including Interest on the invest ment and the labor of the owner, it can be readily seen how it is that each farmer in Hood River valley owns a gold mine in which strawberries are the golden nuggets that put wealth Into his pockets. Ten years ago some of this land could be bought for $5 or 110 an acre. Now some of it can not lie bought for $1,000 an acre. It was our good fortune to atop with A. C. Staten and family, who own a strawberry ranch and fruit farm two miles out of Hood River city, on the slope of the mountain that fronts to the north, and midway between the snows of Mount Hood on the south mid Mount Adams on the opposite side of the Columbia. Mr. Staten formerly lived In Salt Lake City and worked for twenty years there in the great lion foundry which is one of the chief in dustries of the City of the Saint. He mime to Hood River four years ago aud paid $00 an acre for the 40-acre farm he now owns. To the casual observer it would appear that he had paid twice as much, and possibly ten times as much us the farm was worth. This spring, however, he was offered $300 per acre for the same land and refused it. Just think of it, an appreciation of w per cent in lour years, lie paid i2,400 for his ranch and refused In four years $7,000. In his home, which is not pretentious, be has a line piano ind a good library. And no wonder. A few years more of the same prosper ity and he will own government Iwuds and city blocks. The strawberry grown in Hood River is not much dillerent In many respects from other strawlerries. It grows larger, bears handling, nackimr and shipping well, and in fact It is not at its best for table use until it has been four or live days off the vine. Most of the crop is shipped to the East, some to Portland, Seattle and Tacoma, and last year nair a dozen crates were sent to Hong Kong, China, and arrived mere in nrst-class condition. It re quires at the present time 3,000 pickers ana pacKers to Dandle the crop, and they are all imported from the outside world. Many of them are Yakima In dians. Many of the best white people of me tviuametie vauey go to flood Kiver and camp out during the strawberry season and make a holiday of It. The air is salubrious, the weather is not in ordiuately warm and the nighta are perfectly glorious. Not a cloud appears in the sky, and even at night there is not a particle of dew. Everything is raised by irrigation, the water being taken from Hood river. It is not too much to predict that in a few more years Hood River will be the straw berry garden soot of the world and ship annually a million crates, bring ing a proiit to tue growersor Of interest nowySomething else in winter Hammocks Tents Wagon Covers Agoodone, 85c; better, $1.50; Al, $1.75 7x9, $4.75; 8x10, $0.50; 10x12, 17 50; From $2 up.

Odell Notes. Inasmuch as Mr. Wyman has both publicly and privately criticized the author of Udell notes for presuming to express an honest opinion concerning the thinner in which the Sabbath ques tion has been discussed from the pulpit, I desire to say briefly, that as a free born American citizen I reserve the right of free speech and shall, aa your correspondent, continue to say what I deem for the best interests of the com munity, his opinion to the contrary notwithstanding. As to the church at Odell being only union in name, and concerning his statement that all denom inations are free to talk there, I assert that the Catholics and the Latter Day Saints are barred and I aek him this question. Has lie not assailed both these denominations I rom the pulpit? As trustee of this so called union church Mr. Wyman knows whether I am cor rect or not and I think will not deny these statements. 1 shall not attempt to discuss this overdifcuseed question from a biblical standpoint, for 1 care nothing about it. But I reflect the sentiment of the majority of good people here when I say this useless discussion has resulted in harm rather than good. I do not wish to be understood as being skeptical concerning the religion of Christ. I am a firm believer in the Christ life, and commend all such as practice it, yet the history of the early churches is such that it justifies the statement that were it not for the fact of a legal code the intolerance of the church would still prevail. Mr. Wyman quotes Christ's words with reference to judging others. This I endorse. But the Bible says we are to judge a tree by its fruit I believe in this, and am only asking for fruit instead of professions. It is my opinion that such a life is about the only kind that will cause the pearly gates to open wide when all the work and worry of this uncertain life is over. I repeat again, a pure life is better than a thousand sermons. Read Proverbs, 17, and then remember yon cannot "gather grapes from thorns nor figs from thistles.'7 I for a month or two. At the Glenwood hotel I told an 'oculist" that she had charged a poor lady $4 for a pair of steel frame and lensesthat I sell for 90 cents. She sakl, "We can't sell them socheap: we haye a big expense, car fare and traveling expenses; we have to charge more."; And she sold a young mail a pair of ipectacles for $7 that cost her 34 cents. Spectacles with morning glory frames, you know, look nice, and next day youT caii't tell what color they were, 1 warn people to look out for these travelers claiming to be oculists If they are too lazy to work they sell lenses and charge $0 for a pair that cost 19 cents. A traveling spectacle peddler said to me, "I go to a house and size the people up; see how bad they want them. At first I ask $6; If they can't buy at that price I show them another pair, but same kind, for $4, another at $3, then $2 and $1. And they only cost 19 cents!" Beware of fakirs. CHARLES TEMPLE. Entirely too busy to write the notes last week. There is now 10,000 feet of lumber on the ground for the new warehouse and hall across from the little white store, the excavation is made for the founda tion and the work of building will soon begin. The present telephone service is very unsatisfactory and unless something is speedily done I think the company will have trouble in collecting for a service that is worse than no service at all. The people here are very glad to have mail service again, and it is hoped that the next congress will take the matter up and appropriate an adequate amount to furnish efficient service. This great big government of ours is not an object of charity and as a people we should not be called upon to go into our pockets to maintain that which is necessary to illiam he-tresMe-w lliuTthe .average government official is overpaid, while the fellow who does the work is half starved. Better substitute patriotism for politics for a while. Ice cream will be served at the little white store on the 4th. Try a dish on your way to Mount Hood and the Falls. Order of Washington Elects Officers. Saturday night last was the regular meeting of the order of Washington. Supreme Secretary J. L. Mitchell, L. H. Roberts supreme guard, Mrs. Emma Adams, supreme captain of drill teams and Miss Hare, assistant drill captain, were present from Portland and assisted in the work of the evening. .

Frank Snauldng, alter which friends, young and old, gathered around extending good wishes and congratulations for their future happiness and prosperity. The bride appeared in a beautiful white silk organdie dress, carrying a lovely boquet of LaFrance roses, which was the admiration of the assembled guests.

To Whom it may Concern: We the undersigned wish to enter our protest to the statement made by Frank Daven port in the last issue of the Glacier, that "there were only 7 or 8 on 'Strana han's sand hill,' but had plenty of water." We claim the above statement not true, and furthermore that we have not received for the iast four years more than one-half the water we have paid for, (to which we will make affidavit in any court of justice) thereby reducing our crop to one-half what it should have been, and destroying thousands of young plants, which have died for lack of water. ; We furthermore charge Mr. Davenport with taking money under false pretenses. He knows full well that he has sold more water than he can deliver, or that his flume can carry; and the statement that he can furnish all the water that is needed in the valley, we consider erroneous, as his flume is not now, nor ever has been large enough or Btrong enough to supply the needs and demands of the valley." He has resorted to doubtful measures in trying to satis fy his customers, thus injuring others. His "pressure board gauge," which he has placed in various places. We charge Mr. Davenport with negligence in sup plying water on time. The water is not turned on early enough to be effect ive; he iB slack in" his repairs, and in gauging the water no correct methods are used; scores of inches of water are stolen, thus depriving those of it to whom it belongs and this because no flume walker is around to attend to his duties and protect customers ; in many places roads are swimming with water from the ditch, and Stranahan's 'sapd hill' is burned up, and no need of your 'waste water' flume. Now, Neighbor Davenport, we have presented a few, of the reasons why we are dissatisfied with your furnishing water, or rather not furnishing it, and we will hail with de light any company or system that will give us water to irrigate our crops .in nood Kiver valley. i NAMKS.
