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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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

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
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.
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
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

In Reply to Frank Davenport.
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

Heppner will outlive her great dis
aster and will rebuild with more solid
buildings than before, especially in the
business portion. Already .the erection
of four substantial brick business build
ings to take the place of tha old wooden
structures that were damaged by the
flood, is contemplated, and it is almost
a Bettled fact that these buildings fill
be built. Work on the new residence
buildings will l-e commenced as soon, as
Heppner people are independent, de
termined and progressive, and the town
will be built right up again. And why
not? Nothing like this ever occurred
before and it is not likely that there
ever will be an occurrence of this bind
again. The main damage- was in ithe
city of Heppner. We still have all the
resources that we ever had and the bus
iness will naturally come' to Heppner
just as it did before.
