The Valley Improvement company have contracted for about all the water they can furnish without enlarging the Hume. In order to enlarge the flume the Davenport Bros, have divided to sell land to the amount of $GO,000. This will be a bargain in landsand will hold good for 30 days and then will be taken off the market. So you will "have to hurry " if you want some of it. This sale will include the Barrett Ranch, the best farm in Hood River valley. Four thousand fruit trees; . free water for a part of it; contains 180 acres; worth $20,000, but will sell in a lump for $16,000 cash. Or we will sell in 5, 10, 15 and 20 acre lots to suit the purchaser. This is a fine bargain at only $16,000 Also, the famous ranch known as the old E. L. Smith place, near the Frankton school house. This place contains 150 acres, with several fine cold springs on the place, and nearly enough water to irrigate the entire land.. Only 2 miles from town, with the Frank ton school on the place, one of the best schools in the . valley. This place will be sold in small lots and will all be gone inside of ten days, for $15,000 Next comes the old Van Johnson place, and this will be included in this bargain sale. Worth $4,000, but for the cash it will go for 3,000.

Davenport has 13 acres for sale cheap. lie will also sell his house and lot, with 8 acres, cheap. We are not offering this land cheap because we are hard up, but to help out the Valley Improvement Co. The deeds to this land are in the name of the Davenport Bros., hence there will be no commission. All the lands selected by them for choice hay lands, as well as apples and straw berriec, all having free water more or less. These places are the oldest places taken in Hood River, and are also the best, as all of them have good cold springs on them. We also have eight or ten large teams that we willsell in the next thirty days, including harness and wagons. Eighty head of cattle in good condition; two complete saw mills. Do not think because we are offering to sell that we are going out of business, for none of this property is included in our lumber business. The Davenport Bros. Lumber Co. is incorporated for $5o,ooo, fully paid up. Their large mill is now cutting 4o,ooo feet per day, and included in this, besides their mill, is the water flume, timber, planing mill, lumber, etc. We are sure that this property will be sold inside of 3o days to men living right here in the val ley, as the men know the bargains there are in it, and we are also sure they will not let the outside take up these snaps. Call on Frank Davendort, in the old bank building, and look over the plat of the above lands. 3food Iftver (Slacier THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1903. Some Sound Views Political. White Salmon, Wash., Sept.7, 1903. Editor Glacier: Looking at current events from the viewpoint of one who has retired from city life to the "rural deestricks," may I venture a bit of sug gestion anent the trend of affairs polit ical? I have been a republican all my life. Was born that way. Re member Lincoln's second election, and the awful solemnity that came over every patriotic home when he fell the victim of democratic hatred and disloy alty. Have in years past been a very eager advocate of republican principles and done my part to secure thoir success at the ballot box. Ranch life has its advantages as a place from which to measure men and events.llere one is out of the "mix up." The magic circle, sacred to the individ ual who is its center, here is clearer of those invisible wires that touch other men and control individual action, or at least give direction to one's judgment. For a whole year and more in a newly adopted home i have had no voice as an elector and so have done a little concen trated thinking. During the year of my practical dis franchisement, I have been compelled to witness on the part of a republican congress one of the most infamous sur renders to corporate greed and railroad dictation ever perpetrated on a people. The whole Panama canal, proposition was a sidetracking scheme in which congressmen and senators betrayed the country at the dictation of centralized capital. It was Abraham Lincoln who understood best of all our statesmen the heart and underlying purpose of the common people, and he it was who said "You cannot fool all the people all the time." No statesman and no political party, however entrenched, ever was able to withstand the deep purpose of the common people when kindled into somethine resembling wrath. Again, in its cowardly attitude towards reason able and immediate tariff revision, the dominant element in the republican party is playing with combustible ma terial. Every man knows that when he pays for the commonest necessities of his home life he contributes a few cents along with his countrymen to assist the multi-millionaire to lubricate his device for selfishly controlling the output of industry. That grave tariff abuses exist today no honest man will question. There are hut two remedies: Either thereDub- lican congress will courageously go about righting the gross wrongs that the whole country sees or the people will thresh the republican party and lash its scoun drels into permanent obscurity. We have a president of character and high purpose a man of nerve and true fibre. Let him make his appeal to the party of Lincoln to uphold him, and let the people mark for political exile everv one of their representatives whose vote betrays him as the tool of the railroads and trusts. We shall never have a canal at Pana ma controlled by the American people',' and the masses of America look upon the Panama scheme as a piece of treach ery. ... . . . . ' We shall never have an honest tarin administered in the interest of the peo ple w ho toil, until party slavery ceases. No party can perpetuate itself oy plun dering the individuals who comjioee it. That is self evident. The republican party is doing that today and is nearing a defeat that will at least free it from the political rats that infest it. Roose velt and the usual democratic idiocy may save it from defeat in 1904, but its departure from the common people its betrayal of their interests its delib erate disregard of their purpose, is stor ing up against it a flood of popular wrath that will wipe it out when the flood gates are loosed, and treachery of senators and congressmen will be responsible for its defeat and deserved humiliation. Let the young men of the republican party make themselves understood. Let it be known that no party owns them to use them as voting units in polluting our national life. If the republican party is permanent ly under the control of corrupting influ ences, the true American spirit that has rescued the republic before will do it again and no party name will serve to permanently obscure our best ideals.

Not a whisper was heard anywhere, and the situation had become painfully oppressive, when the prisoner was seen to move; bis head was raised, his hands were clenched, and the blood had rushed Into his pale, careworn face, suddenly he rose to his feel, and In a low, linn voice, said: 1 have!
