These fignns were gathered list week when the Glacier man mnde l is annual ean vasi for the city'8 eensns. It is ettimat -i that the ainmint of improvements made In the valley, if gathered up, would amount to a sum in excess of that for the city. Hood River has made no pretense of a boom, but the figures show a very gratifying ad' vancement. As published last week, the popula tion of Hood River is 1781, an increase of 375 over the same date 12 months ago. On a percentage basis this is an increase of over 26.5. Few cities in Ore' gon can show better figures for increase of population and postal receipts during the year 1904. PRIZE WINNERS ST. LOUIS FAIR Names of Hood River fruitgrowers loom up in great shape in, the list of prize winners at the 1st Jxiuis tair. l tie reuort in full has been given out by V 11. Welirung, general superintendent of Oregon s exhibits at the Louisiana rur chase exposition. Sneaking of Oregon's fine horticultur. al exhibit atSt. Louie, Superintendent bill M Kg "The Oreuon horticultural exhibit Bteadily improved during the last three months oi we exposition, reaening us best appearance during the mouth of November when 260 boxes of apples from Hood Kiver, tent out by the com mission, assisted very substantially and materially by the business men of Port land and Hood Kiver, gave to Oregon what fiKg been termed one of the very best and most attractive exhibits in the palace of horticulture. 'By this shipment we were enabled to make an exhibit with which wese cured two grand prizes, one for quality and quantity and one for arrangement. Had we been furnished with quantities of the different fruits in season, as had been so often requested, we would have won more grand prizes, and the 82 sil ver medals received would have been gold medals." Of the 83 silver medals on fruit won by Oregon, Hood River farmers captured 87 and Mosier three, making a total of 40. This is exclusive of the gold medals, of which Hood River was awarded two one to the Apple Growers' union-and one to O. D. W ooiiworth for cherries. Hood River people winning silver medals : F. W.

Dalles producers over looked a good chance when they neglect ed to take advantage of the opportunity to show what this section can do. A few, however, were there with exhibits and among the awards we find the fol lowing: A siWer medal for J. M. flem ming, who exhibited a collection of pep- Jiers ; also a bronz medal for peaches. .A. Fleck gets a silver medal for grape'. J. Nelson a silver for prunes. VV. H. Tavlor&Son, a bronze on prunes: J. II. "Gibson for apples; George Webb for peaches and prunes, and R. H. Webber for prunes. Wasco county did herself proud in securing the grand medal for fruit. This was made possible by the exhibit of apples sent from Hood River. Chronicle K Grim Tragedy is daily enacted, in thousands of homes as death claims in each one, another victim of consumption or pneumonia. But wben coughs or colds are properly treated, the tragedy is averted.' b G. Huntley, of Oaklamion, Ind., writes 'My wife had the consumption, and three doctors gave her up. Finally she took Dr. King's New Discovery for Con sumption, coughs and colds, which cured her, and today she is well and fitroiig." It kills the germs of all riis-eaw-s. One done relieves.

The order of the United States govern ment removing duty charges from all imports for the Lewis and Clark exposi tion has now gone into effect. While exhibitors from foreign countries will be permitted to import their wsres duty free, the strictest regulations will be in forced to see that the order is not taken advantage of by smugglers.

Handsaker, who arrived Faturday from Corvallis, and are conducting a series of revival meetings at the Valley Christian church, are meeting with very gratifying re sults. The services begin with song service each evening at 7:30 o'clock ami preach ing begins at 8 o'clock. The house is well filled each evening, by. attentive and interested audiences. Mr. llimd- FIND FEASIBLE GRADE FOR ROAD A Glacier reporter called on W. H. Eccles, general manager of the Oregon Lumber company, and made inquiry as to progress being made w ith the pro posed railroad up Hood river, "ttur engineers have made a nrettv thorough examination up the East Side of Hood river for a distance of about six miles," replied Mr. Eccles, "and while grades are not entirely satisfactory, a railroad up there is not an impossibility. It is our intention," combined Mr. Eccles, "to survey a line on I lie West Side, which, from hurried examina tions, looks pretty good. Ihc line would be shorter by at least two miles If built on the West Side. That, however, might not be induce ment enough to put it there. Much de pends on the people as to rights of way. So far, we have been given a great deal of encouragement, many of the property owners assuring us that they would gladlv givejhe right of way if we would onlv build the road. "Yes. we think this the most prac tical solution of the problem of getting logs to nur mill, and lots of them. At Baker City we haul logs more than twice this distance and do a very satis factory business there. .. 'We have at this time about eleven million feet of logs in the river and could have the road ;n operation and be deliv ering all the logs we need to the mill by rhe time those now in the river are cut. We are logging at this time and shall continue to do so until after the spring Irive. COMPLETING WORK ON RAILROAD YARDS The O. R. & N. is spending not a little money in greatly improving the yards at this point. The long-needed improve ments, including the rearrangement and enlargement of the depot, laying new tracks, building of a new freight depot, moving the section houses, etc4 will be completed soon. The depot, when tin. shed, will lie one of the neatest and best arranged of any along the line. The platform will be rebuilt and extended 1UU leet fur ther west. Two new spurs have been laid, one to the new Hood River flouring mill and one to Stranahan it l'agley's new warehouse. The berry track has been extended some two hundred feet, now connecting w ith a new team track, which has been put in below the freight depot, and the old team track added to the passing track. xtra gangs are pushing the worn along as rapidly as possible. The main ine and adjoining tracks will be raided and reballasted. When this work is finished, the depot painted and the yards dressed down with graval ballast, the yards here will be considerably mproved in appearance, which will add greatly to the already most picturesque locality of the scenic portion ottheu. R. &. S" line. METHODIST CHURCH FOR PINE GROVE The Methodists of Pine drove district are planning to build a church this spring, says Rev. W. C. Evans. Daves Divers bequeathed JlUiio to the church at Pine Grove, and with this as a nu cleus for a building fund it is thought that a verv substantial building can be erected. The Methodists have a strong congregation in the Pine Grove district, and deserve a better meeting place than their present structure. The revival services in the Methodist church in this city ended last weeUwith the result that 20 additional members have been secured. Pastor Evans is well pleased with the work. He "was assisted by two lay evangelists from California, Colburn and lirymer, who. are now conducting special meetings at Pine Grove. The membership of the Methodist church in Hood River now numbers 140. Farewell to Mr. and .Mrs. Brace. Sunday evening, January 8, Mr. and Mrs. Wait entertained a few friends at their home, in honor of F. O. Brace and wife, who with their family left Hood River Monday for a new home south of The Dalles. The time was very pleasantly spent in lively talk andquiet play. Miss Ma Brace gave her friends the pleasure of listening to quite a number of her favor ite pieces of limbic, also little Stella. only six years of ae, executed some very line music on the piano in company with her sister Ida. Her time was excellent, and for one so small, it is a surprise and a pleasure to listen to her sing or piny with the grace and dignity of a young lady. Ail were delighted with the little star (Stel.a). At a late hour gnodbys were said and the good wishes of loving friends will follow Mr. and Mrs. Brace and family to their distant home. Those present were Mr. and Mrs J. M. Hollowell, Garland Hollowell. Ho mer Hollowell. Madge. llllo,nll, Mr. and Mrs. Will J.mes and daughter Lot tie, Mr. and Mrs. F.

CONTRACTS FOR BOXES AT 81 c Apple boxes will be made this year tor i cents a box to the grower. I he committee of three appointed at the applegrowers' mass meeting two weeks ago got down to work .with the result that the growers are signing con tracts with the Davenport Brothers Lumber company for apple boxes at 8j cents each. . To those who paid 11 cents last vear this will mean a big saving 2J cents on the box or $25 on the thousand. The agreement stipulates that the grower snail purchase all his apple boxes from the Davenport Bros., and that the luni ber company shall sell for not less than ten cots a box to anyone not signing the contract. Already over 50,000 boxes have been contracted for, Including a majority of me growers in the valley, says Mr Kul say of the Davenport Bros. Lumber company, the company will expend $.HH)0 in a bx factory plant, which will be located at Belmont or on the railroad track at Ruthton. In either event the company agrees to deliver the boxes to the growers in the city of Hood River. Frank Davenport says he may locate the factory in town provided can iret electric power in time. The company would prefer to locate the factory in the city if power can be had. This would mean another payroll for Hood River. Those comprising the committee who arranged the deal with the Davenport Bros. Lumber company were Messrs. Shoemaker, S aten and Porter. STRIKEBOUND GOES TO BOTTOM Special to the Glacier. Stevenson, Wash., Jan. 10. The steamer Dalles City struck a rock this noon about a mile and a half above Stevenson and lies now a badly wrecked vessel, with her pilot house, entirely submerged in the water. The captain was at dinner and the mate at the wheel, Immediately on learning something was wrong, the cap tain rushed to the pilot house and started the steamer toward the shore. By this means the passengers were saved and most of the freight kept out of the water. The hull is reported ripped open from stem to stern. The rock causing the damage lies in a channel unused by the deep-draft boats, but was considered safe for lighter steamers. The Regulator was in the locks at the time, and immediately came to the assistance of the crippled steam er. The passengers had been safely landed on the Washington shore, and from there were taken to Cascade Locks. , A large number of horses and a big load of freight were aboard, but by moving the same to the bow of the steamer, but little of it was seriously damaged. When the steamer struck the rock, the passengers were panic stricken, and but lor the cool work of the officers there would have been serious results. (Joes to Jail in Default of Ball.
