next Saturday afternoon, similar to
those held in the rooms of the Com

the whole state in point of attendance
and amount of advertising. There
should bo a committee appointed at
this meeting to see about securing
these apples and pears. There should
also bo a committee for distributing
the fruit at tho Oregon building ou

"I have uo doubt the farmers of the
valley will gladly donate the fruit as
an advertising feature. It will not
require much from auy individual,
iinud eating apples and pears is all
that is asked for. Lach separate ap
ple or pear should be wrapped in a
Japanese napkin, on which should be

fruit came with the compliments of
Hie Hood River farmers aud the Com
mercial club. There should also be
some statistics regarding the fruit
industry of tho valley."
Mr. Castncr says if the people of
llood River will secure the apples
aud send them to Portland so they will
reach the exposition grounds one day
before the excursion, he will see thut
they are transported from the depot
without further cost to the Commer

There should lie a short program of

SPEND THE DAY ON NEAL CREEK
Itrsns Band, Songs and Spccchcs.
Dlnner is Spread Beneath
Thursday, August 24, was a great
day for Hood River Hawkeyes. They
pieniced that day under the piues oil
the batiks of Neal creek, and many of
them declare they never had a better
time in their lives. There was some
dust ou the road to be sure, but un
der the shade of the pines, the day
was perfect. No thunder storm or cy
clone disturbed the merrymakers
Somebody forgot to supply the roast
ing ears, but the women ull brought
baskets overflowing with good things
to eat, and after a short program of
speeches, singing aud music by the
band, the tables were spread on the
carpet of pine needles, when nil did
justice to the dinner laid before t hem.
Something over 2TA) people were
present. W. F. Laruway was chair
man of the day. He waited at some
length for several who hud promised
to take part in the program. One of
the soloists was absent, but- Miss
Blanche Harbison and sisters Hester
and Ruth kindly volunteered, and
without any previous preparation
sang "tlood bye, Little tiirl, llood
bye," so beautifully that a generous
encore brought them to the platform
a second time.
Mrs. W. F. Laruway was then Intro
duced and read a very interesting pa
per descriptive of the great slate of
Iowa. Mrs. Larawny was listened to
attentively. The paper was instructive
alike to Hawkeyes and Oregon iaus.
Little 9-year-old Ktnina Noble re
upended to a call from the chairman
for a recitation. She was encored
enthusiastically. "Telephone Tulk"
was the Btibject of her first piece, und
"Jiuchelor Sale," the second.

morous stories, and was roundly ap
Chairman Laraway culled for the
first one in the gathering who had
loft the state of Iowa for Oregon.
Amos Underwood stepped to the plat
form, and announced that I e came in
IK.72. No one disputed this honor un
til Roswell Shelley came forward and
stated that he left Iowa In iMH. Tho
two pioneers shook hands. Chairman
Laraway then announced that he had
reserved the beat for t'ae last and in
troduced Mr. Shelley, who held the
attention of the audience for 20 min
utes. Mr. Shelley spoke of the good
state of Iowa aud her wonderful re
sources, following with an eulogy of
the pioneers who braved the ruyages
of the Indians to carve for thenitclvcs
a home in the Oregon country. Mr,
Shelley crossed the plains when little
more than an Infant. His grandfa
ther while on the hard trip across tho
plains fell a victim of cholera and was
buried on the hanks of tho River
Piatt. When the party arrived in
Lane county, ten miles above Eugene,
there was uo Hour in the country.
What little they used that winter was
ground in a eoli'eo mill.
As one of the many lowans present,
Mr. Shelley was glud ho hud come to
Oregon, and in his opinion this coun
