A physician should al ways be called. It should be borne in mind, however, that pneumonia always results from a cold or from an attack of the grip, and that by giving Chamber lain's Cough Iti-medy the threatened at tack of pneumonia may be warded off. This remedy is also used by physicians in the treatment of pneumonia with the nest results. Dr. W. J. Smith of San ders, Ala., who is also a druguist, says of it: "I have been selling Chamber lain's Cough Remedy and prescribing it in my practice for the, past six years. I use it in cairn of pneumonia and have always gotten the best results." Sold by all druggists. It Saved His Leg. P. A.

Mr. Stewart is a man of pleasing per sonality and a very pleasant talker. He does not resort to abuse in his talks, but presents his arguments in a clear, forcible and convincing manner. Every seat in the opera house was filled, and the audience gave him the closest at tention throughout hisaddress. At the close, a collection was taken to help defray expense of the cause, Mr. Stew art explaining that his was the only party which, at national conventions, received itemized statements of all moneys received and disbursed.

A very interesting and instructive re port of the proceedings of the state En deaxorers' convention wa given at the Valley Christian church, Sunday even ing, ar the Endeavor hour, by Miss Cora Copple, our state delegate. Miss Copple attended all the sessions cf the convention at Pendleton, and her report thereof was very full. In reading her notet and dixcussing them, Miss Copple occupied the entire time at her disposal, and we, who had the pleasure of listen ing to the many choice extracts which her untiring peneil had preserved, re gretted only that our hour of enjoyment was so short-Miss Copple, alwavs enthus iastic, brought with her from the con vention, an increased supply of real Christian enthusiasm, much of which she imparted to her audienre. A business meeting of the members of the Christian Endeavor society was held at the home of Mrs. Charles Copple on last Friday evening. After some nec essary business matters w ere disposed of, the young folks devoted themselves to the pleasures of taffy-prilling and other appropriate exercises. The attendance, considering the weather, was good. CoBBKSPOXniNO Seckktaby. A Plea for the Rural Carrier. Hood River, Or.. Feb. 24, 1904. Ed itor Glacier: From the congressional dispatches in the Sunday Oregonian I learn that the house committee on post ollices and post roads has recommended a raise of f 10 per month on the salaries of rural carriers. This advance is not enough, but this same committee also had the nerve to insert this provision in the bill: "On and after July 1. 1904. car riers shall not solicit business or receive orders of anv kind for anv oerson. firm or corporation, and eliafl not, during their hours oi employment, carry any merchandise for hice.'' The parcels delivery permit is almost equal in advantages to patrons to mail delivery itself, and the receipts from it are no insignificant part of the Carrier's pay. In this connection it is proper to call attention to the fact that the salary of a city carrier is $800 per year, and if he drives a horse in the suburbs, lie is given a subsistence allowance of $250 more. And now, what are we, the farmers of the United States, gping to do about this? It is as plain as day that we are being "jobbed." Certain business in terests have always been unfriendly to rural free delivery, and since abandon ing hope of destroying the system en tirely, this new move has been made for the purpose of forcing the farmers to eo to town for every little article which they happen to need, with the hope that they will squander a few extra dimes lor things wincn tney can do without. It is now up to the farmers to fight for their rights even it it amounts to the abolishment of most of the cities and towns entirely. So, brother farmers, let every one of us who hath breath, howl ! Let us howl long and loud! Let every one who can sign his name and put a few words of English on paper write to our delegation in congress and remind them of the dreary wilderness surrounding the head waters of Salt river, which will bo their future abode if they stand idly by and permit this infamous provision in the bill to become a law. The stamp act, the tea tax and the Dred Scott decision pale into insignificance in comparison to the injury which we would suffer. R. E. Harbison. The Deep Snow 20 Years Ago. The recent spell of winter weather in Hood River was very mild compared to the deep Bnow of 20 years ago. , D. A. Turner, an old timer in the valley, has handed the Glacier several copies of the Daily and Weekly Oregonian of January, 1885, which contain interesting accounts of the big snow storm that winter, when an O. It. & N. passenger train was snowbound, for three weeks four miles abovo Wyeth. The Btorm at Hood River began late in the afternoon of Saturday, December 13, 1884, but did not reach Portland until Monday noon. An east wind accompanied the snow, which fell steadily for three weeks until there was five feet of snow on a level all over Hood Rive vallev. According to the Oregonian's daily meteorological re port, on Tuesday, December 23, at The Dalles, the snow was eight feet deep. Passenger trains from the East found the road blocked when they reached The Dalles, Mondav, the Kith, and were held there until Thursday, when the snow plow reported, the track cleared to ' "T'-v- , , ' - 1 TO t D. A. TURNER, One of the early pioneers ol the East Hide of Jlood River, was born In Randolph county, Missouri, September 21, 18:ifi. Leaving the old home April 8, 1857, he came by way of the Isth mus of Panama to California, where four years were spent near the town of Ploccrvllie, Eldorado cqjinty. In company with the lale William Odell, he left Placerville for Wash ington, then a territory. Lauding Ht Port land, Oregon, they met an old friend ot Mr. Odell's, and by his suggestion they came to Hood River. This was In 1801. After spend-' lng a few days looking over the valley, they bought out the Interest of one Butler, a cooper, who had located the place now known as the Roberts ranch In the Odell district. In the fall of 1862 Mr. Turner went to the old Auburn mines, In Baker county, and spent a year on the Auburn Canal Co.'s ditch and In the mines at Mormon Basin. Returning to Hood River, he bought the claim of William Moss, In the Pins Grove neighborhood, where he lived for 40 vears, or nntll two years ago.when he sold his farm and moved to the city of Hood River. Mr. Turner Is, next to Captain Henry C. Coo, the oldest resident of Hood River valley. He with his wife are members of the M. E. church of Hood River. In poll tics he Is a republican. During the 27 years We have known Mr. Turner, he has never held nor songht public office but would have been an honor to bis part; had It chosen to call on him to serve In any capacity. Wyeth. The delayed train then started. When with four miles of Wyeth a snow slide completely buried both engines and partially covered the mail and ex press car, rendering the train en tirely helpless. A passenger writing of the blockade says: "It continued snowing and blowing incessantly, and the storm at this time was little better than a hurricane. The snow slide occurred about 2 o'clock Thursday. Conductor Lyons took a hasty view of the situation and was con vinced we could, not move from here until the storm kbattuf. He then started on foot through a blinding snow and wind storm for Wyetn, a telegraph sta tion four miles distant, where he sent a dispatch to Hood River for provisions. "Next day a hand-sled arrived from Hood River with such supplies as could be transported under such circumstan ces. We continued to receive supplies from Hood River and Cascade Locks, where 30 men under government employ volunteered to pack in provisions, facing cutting wind and blinding snow for 11 miles. Some of the party gave out on the way and had to be assisted in, while some were considerably frosted. They arrived at the train about dark anil were pitiable looking objets indeed. Up to this time all had been furnished with guffieent food to allay any great hunger or inconvenience of the passen gers, and none felt like making com plaint, but submitted gracefully to the condition of affairs and seemed to vie with each other in singing, chatting, card-plaving and visiting from car to car to while away the time. "For four days we remained here, the storm raging all the time without, and each day seeming morse than the pre ceding one. It was Monday night after the supplies had arrived from Cascade Locks, that Conductor Lyon made his appearance in our car and with much feeling announced that he had come to bid ns good-bye, and that on tomorrow morning he would expect every able bodied man to leave the train, as it was useless to try to feed all here lon;rer. Then might have been seen croups ol anxious passengers earntly const iing at to the best course to pursue, and each one summing up the probabilities of his being physically able to stand the trip of eleven miles to Cascade Lpcks over (Continued on Page i., See them.
