' ? i i GETTING READY FOR Mil FAIR The committeeH in charge of the fruit mir nave oegun work in earnest for the greatest fruit exhibit Hood River ever set out fur the admiration of the public. The executive committee met last NUurday at the rooms of the Commer cial club with Leslie Butler, G. J. Gess- nue and li. K. Uastner present. J. K. Rand. Miss Smith and Mrs Duinble of the entertainmentcominittee were present and reported progress. After discussion by the general com mittee, it was suggested that entertain ment be provided for Thursday and Saturday nights. Friday night will be laKen up Dy the meeting of the Edito rial association. It was further sug gested that the services of the Hood River band be secured for each evening. Chairman Rand was authorized to add members to his committee. W. J. Baker, chairman of the com mittee on location of the fair pavilion, reported the selection of the grounds of the Davidson Fruit Co. Mr. Baker, also a member of the transportation committee, suggested that the railroad company be conferred with and arrange ments made to have the passenger trains stop 15 minutes during the fair days. 1 lie matter of arranging for this was left to Mr. Baker. It was decided to make Friday Dalles day, and Saturday Portland day. The Portland Commercial club is expected to attend the fair in a body, and pos sibly an excursion special will be arranged for out of Portland on Satur day. Friday there will be excursions by boat and train from The Dalies, Dufur, Antelope and Sherman county. The finance committee was instructed to secure a guarantee subscription fund of $5(10. W. J. Baker, Joseph A. Wilson and E. H. Shepard were appointed a com mittee on awards, whose duties it will be to secure the various premiums that will be offered. The sum of $50 was appropriated for awards. Mr. Richmond of Mount Hood was made a special committee of one to solicit exhibits from the Mount Hood settlement. It was agreed that the committee should arrange to secure good eating apples for distribution to the visitors from out of town. It was suggested that the entertain ment committee rent the opera house every night if possible, in order to pre vent counter attractions drawing from the fair attendance. The committee will meet again, Sat urday, October 1, at 2 p. in., and the Glacier was requested to stir up mem bers of the different committees to be present. Following are the chairmen of the various sub-committees, all of whom are expected to be present with a full report of their work. No excuse will be accepted for non-attendance: Finance H. F.

The publication committee was in structed to have the job printer print advertisements of the fair on envelopes for use of the business men of the city. The building committee was author ized to purchase canvas 14x46, 12x20 and two pieces 10x14. Smith Returns From Grants Pass. E. L. Smith returned Monday night from Grants Pats, where as president of the Oregon Development league, he attended the Development league meet ing in that city last week. Mr. Smith says it was a Hplendid gathering of rep resentative citizens of Southern Oregon. Everyone seemed imbued with the development movement. Judge Cake, Tom Richardson and W. E. Comau accompanied Mr. Smith uo representatives of the Portland Com mercial club. At Roseburg, the South ern Pacific took on a special car for the delegates, and there were delegations from Jacksonville, Medford and Ash land, headed by the mayors of the towns. Returning, Mr. Smith stopped off at Salem to visit the Wallace orchard in Polk county. Mr. Wallace has just gathered 1(13 tons of Bartlett pears from his orchard. Mr. Smith secured sam ples of eight varieties of pears from this orchard, which lie will put on exhibi tion at the fruit fair for those who are interested in setting out pear orchards at Hood River. At Grants Pass, Mr. Smith visited the 35-acre orchard of Eisinan Bros. This orchard has 10,000 boxes of apples this year. The proprietors recently sold 7,000 boxes of Spitzenbergs to Page & Son for $1.50 a box. Mr. Smith says this orchard, a few years ago, was badly affected with anthracnose or dead rot, and had it not been for Commissioner Newell and Professor Cordley of the Oregon Agricultural college, the orchard would have been a total loss by this time. These gentlemen made a study of the dead rot, and found that it could be destroyed with a fall spray contain ing double the usual quantity of copperas. Masonic Lodge At Trout Lake A Masonic lodge was constituted at Trout Lake last Wednesday night with 31 charter members. Judge Miller, deputy Grand Master for the state of Washington was present as installing otiicer. Among the other visiting ma sons were Messrs. Brooks, VanVactor, Lytle, Cooley, and Timblin from Gol dendale, and Mr. Carpenter from Cen terville. Two other gentlemen accom panied Judge Miller from Vancouver. It was the intention to send a dele gation from Hood Itiver, but at the last moment all who intended to make the trip found it impossible to leave their business. The following are the officers intalled bv the Trout J-ake Masons: "William Coate, master; O.J. Smith, genior warden; Edward Duncan, junior warden; B. C. Hamilton, secretary; George Kreps, treasurer; Frank Coate, senior deacon ;A1 Bertchi.jnnior deacon. Chris Guler has been deputized senior warden in the absence of O J. Smith. William Staddleman, Chris Guler and John Dethman were in Hood River Monday and reported the organization of the lodge to the Glacier. From what Mr. Staddleman says, his friend Guler, the first man made a Mason at Trout Lake, rode the goat m rong end to, but Guler's ftory didn't corroborate the statement. IH thman was on his way to Vancou ver land office to make final payment on a timber claim heowns on the Little White Salmon. Mr. Dethman beleives he has a tine piece of timlier, and is not anxious to sell. He rs now homestead ing a quarter-section in the Trout Lake country. . Mr. Dethman cava Birch meuntain behind Trout Lake is art re for 20 miles. An attempt was made to stop the spread of the flames, but no headway could be gained against the fire demon. The dust coming id was terrible. Ac cording ta Mr. Staddleman, he took the Iront seat on the stage and persuaded Dethman to git behind where he would not get so much dust, but when the wagon arrived at White Salmon, Deth man is said to have resembled a white nigger. Chris Guler accompanied the crowd to the city with a shotgun determined to protect their wealth from the highway men if he has to kill two or three. SHIP CAR APPLES TO CALIFORNIA A car of mixed varieties of early fall apples was shipped Tuesday tiy the Hood River Applegrowers' union to markets in Southern California. The Portland market is reported very poor for apples. The car of wrapping papers for apples arrived last Saturday. Manager Shep ard sent out notices Friday to the apple men, notifying them of the arrival of the car of paper and requesting thorn to come early to avoid the rush in get ting their paper from the car. Mr. Shepard says Monday morning there was a big rush of farmers to town and over half the car was unloaded that morning. The carload of paper represented 15,000 pounds of wrapping, lining and laying paper. By buying the paper in bulk the growers saved about one cent a box, sufficient to cover the cost of hauling their apples to the warehouse in town. W. J. Baker received word Mondav that a car of pears shipped by him to Chicago will net him about 70 cents a box. The fruit sold in Chicago from $1.25 to $1.70 in a market where other pears, well packed, were bringing $2.25. The pears from Mr. Baker's place were packed in a hurry by green hands, and although they arrived in first class con dition in Chicago, the slack pack cut down the returns. G. R. Castner. member of the board of directors of the Hood River Apple growers' union, states that the recent sale of apples secured by Page & son brought $2.10 a box for the four-tier Spitzenbergs, and $1.75 for the four-tier ewtowns. The $2.10 fiirure Dermits but 20 rter cent to be 128s; those in excess of this number going at $1. 7ft. The light col ored Spitz under 112 went for $1.60 All Pewtowns, 4:4-tier and less, went tor fl,25. The total sale included 30 cars of Spitzenbergs and Newtowns. Two cars of Baldwins went for $1, and two cars of Kings at the same figure. Mr. Castner says many inquiries are coming in for apples from all parts of the United States.- New Orleans is willing to pay a good price for Ben Davis. New York and Philadelphia aiso want applet. Jasper Wickhani Home From Iowa. Jasper Wick ham returned Mondav morning from Iowa, where he went to Bettle up atlairs connected with the estate of his deceased father. Mr. Wickham had not been east for 20 years. lie says the greatest changes noticed was in the neoule manv of them had grown old since lie lived among them. mere are better buildings on the farms, but the same corn, oats and hogs are raised as or old. air. Wickham thought Iowa looked very good to him. Me thinks the limners there have more leisure time than they do at Hood itiver. While East Mr. Wickham had the good fortune to attend several harvest gatherings and pioneer reunions, where he had the onnortnnitv to meet, manv ot his old time mends, all of whom were glad to see him and to learn of the Oregon country. Returning, Mr. Wickham spent Sun day in the city of Spokane. He was there in 1883, when that town was but a village. Now it is a bustling city of 40,000 population. The city is well built with substantial business blocks and handsome dwellings. Mr. Wickham says there have been great changes in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, in the last lew years. Many large man ufacturing plants have been established there, and the town has grown from 8,000 population to 30,000. While there Mr. Wickham went through the largest oatmeal factory in the world. Visitor Seen Prosperity Here. F. M. Rinehart of Condon spent Sat urday and Sunday in Hood River, re turning Monday morning. Mr. Rine hart had come down to make a visit to his nephew, O. A. Rinehart, but found him ahseut in Idaho. Mr. Rinehart while here stopped at the home of Mr. Ewers, his nephew's neighbor on the hill. Sunday he took a drive to the up per part of the valley. Mr. Rinehart thinks Hood River a fine country. The splendid homes of the farmers and the many thrifty apple orchards gave him the impression that this is a prosperous community. - Mr. Rinehart has a homestead about six miles west of Condon in the heart of the wheat country. Land there is held at J 15 to $20 an acre, and this year pro duced an average wheat yield of 20 bushels to the acre. The railroad now building from Arlington to Condon will be the making of Southern Gilliam county. It cost as much as the wheat was worth to haul it 40 miles to Arling ton, and when the road is completed the farmers will be getting just twice the price they are now getting, Bays Mr. Hiuehart. Entitled To All The Credit We Get. Mr. and Mrs. W. N. Acres of South Bend, Pacific county, Wash., visited last week in Hood Kiver with their former neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. S. A. Knapp. Mrs. Acres says she had always heard so much about Hood River that she was glad to have seen the country and town. What she saw here surprised her, and she enthusias tically remarked that Hood -River was well entitled to all the good things said about the country and more, too. Mr. Acres has a farm at Mosier. He is the county surveyor at South Bend. Mr. Knapp, who came to Hood River from Pacific county, says that is a great country, with valuable resources in lumbering, fisheries, oyster beds, dairying, etc., but as a place of resi dence it doeBn't begin to compare with Hood River. The country is off the main line of the railroads, and the transportation accommodations are therefore very poor. The rainfall there is greatly in excess of this country. Dance Music Was Splendid. There have been many compliments on the splendid dance music furnished last week bv Charles R. McCally the violinist. The work of Miss Ball, the accompanieet, is also highly spoken of. Mu-icofthis high Btandard by players in the home town will lie highly sought after during the dancing season about to begin. Arrangements have already been made to have Mr. McCally furnish music for a dance on Friday night of -the fruit fair. Mr. Mc Cally .proposes to secure several other pieces that night and will give Hood River some first class orchestra music. The waltz music of Professor McCal ly's own composition was warmly en coied the evening of the dance. WANT HOOD RIVER FRUIT AT ST. LOUIS Charles K. Warrens, member of the Lewis and Clark fair commission, writes 10 tne uiacier that it is time the Hood River farmers began to make prepara tion to set aside their finest fruit for (lis play at the St. Louis exposition, also for the Lewis and Clark fair. "If any grower, or several growers to gether, can select at least half a dozen boxes of extra fancy apples of any one variety, the state board would lie very glad to learn of it," says Mr. Warrens. "They would make all arrangements for shipping to St. Louis and pay all expenses, but there must be not less than 500 apples of anv one variety. I wouia line w see the llooa Kiver grow ers send a full display of every variety that docs well in their vicinity." Baler's Pears Score At St. Louis. W. J. Baker received the following very complimentary acknowledgement from Chas. V.Galloway, on the arrival of some of lug fine Bartlett pears at St. Louis : "I beg to acknowledge the receipt from you on September 8, of one box of splendid Bartlett pears, in good con dition, this iruit was entered and scored yesterday, immediately after its arrival, thus losing no points on account oi deterioration. Mr. Baker states that these pears were given gratis to the Oregon exhibit ai i. JjOuis. BELIEVES DAIRY WOULD PAY HERE "After reading the references that have been made in the Glacier the last week or two that a creamery is needed in Hood River, I took the pains to notice the many fields of clover throughout the valley, as 1 drove out this morning, and I can't help thinking these clover fields after the hay has been cut should be used for pasturing dairy cows, remarked Charles E. Warren to a Glacier man last Saturday. "With the price of clover hay $14 a ton, of course it would hardly nav to feed it to cows, but with a surplus of nay in me valley ,tlie price will naturally come down, ami then the dairy business snouui pay wen nere. "Fine creamery butter is manufacture ed at Corvallis and Hillsboro and all through the Willamette valley where the farmers have gone extensively into the dairy business. The farmers there have found the dairy business profitable and there is every reason to believe it would be a paying proposition here. "If some enterprising firm were to put in a dairy plant at Hood River and establish cream routs over the vallev. the farmers could afford to keep a half dozen cows and buy separators. After the cream is separated the skim milk could be fed to pigs, and thus encourage another byproduct of the fruit farms." Just The Ladder For Orchards. A big shipment of the Zaun fruit lad ders arrived at Wait's feed store last week, and every farmer who has seen the ladder is taking one home with him. They are the proper thing for fruit men, that's no mistake. They can be used as an ordinary step ladder and in a mo ment can be extended to twice their length. Made of light material.they are easy to handle. Iron bolts and rods make them firm and stout, and it is a wonder how the apple men have got along so long without them. Wait sells them at 13.75 apiece. But if two are taken he will knock off 50 cents, or if a farmer buys 1000 apple boxes from him, he makes the fruit grower a present of a ladder. Hunters' Horses Take French Leave. D. McDonald and Robert Leasure left last week for Cloud Cap Inn to hunt for deer. The first night out, tho horses were staked near camp, but they were frightened at something, presumably a deer, and breaking looBe they left for home, Mr. McDonald's coining all the way back to Hood River and walking into the barn. The hunters got no game. They were able to see plenty of it in the woods, but everything under foot was so drv that the deer made themselves scarce at the approach of the gunners. Returning home, other horeeg were secured at the Mount Hood store, and the journey continued uninterrupted. A Pleasant Evening With Miss Byrd. A pleasant evening was spent at the home of Miss Lulu Byrd, Saturday, Sep tember 24. Many of her friends gathered to celebrate her 17th birthday. The evening was spent with music and games. A delicious lunch of ice cream and cake was served. At a late hour all went home, wishing her many happy returns.
