HOOD RIVER GLACIER, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 51905.
ODELL WHY HOOD RIVER APPLES ARE BEST liy Roawell Shelloy. Odell, Kant Hood River Valley, Oct. 4. This is Wednesday morn inn, and as we have juist returned from the fuir, it is too late (or the usual grist of notes for this week, but here is one which promises an extended story for next issue: Will Lenz and Walter Silliman left (bis morning for a bear hunt in the mountains Like the Alaska "mann ers" they carried their pack on their backs. Aftermath of the Fair. Od oil people are home from the ex position, poorer but wiser. We all had the tine of our lives, and no one regrets tie money it cost to help ad vertise the wonderful Hood River val ley at one of the greatest and most successful of the numerous world's fairs. Mr. Wagner, the gentleman in charge of the Denton county booth, said to me, while seated at the dining table: "I have asked 100 men why Hood River apples are better than any other apples. They could not tell; and I'll bet yon can't." 1 was glad of the opportunity to ex plain, and in a voice loud enough for all at the table to hear, gave an analy sis of the soil of Hood River valley, telling of the certain elements which go toward making the keeping quali ties, high color and rich flavor sur passed by no other apples in the world. The laugh was turned on Mr. Wag ner, who hauled in his boms and ac knowledged the corn. fierce animals and branding them in the corrals. The wild and fascinating life thus vividly portrayed held me as one enchanted. Like the boys ot Wyoming, it was dying bard to give up the strenuous lifo of the plains to fall in the procession of civilization. While at the exposition, I met three schoolmates of the clans of 18.7 ; who can beat this? To me the moving pictures of the cattle roundup in the Wyoming ex hibit was the most interesting of all the features of the exposition, having myself been a oowboy at one time, and assisted in herding the wild cat tle of the ranges; rounding up the The gentleman in chargo of the Wenittchne valley exhibit said to nic that at St. Louis last year the fruit display of the Winatchee valley took the lead up to the last minute when Hood River stepped in with a big hunch of fruit and captured the grand prize. He says he is afraid this will happen again. Hundreds of our nickel souvenir budges could be sold at the exposition now. This badge was pronounced bj all as the most unique at the fair. Hood River and Tiiconia are acknowl edged to lie in the lead in the matter of advertising their respective Mic tions. Now watch thorn both grow. BARRETT. Hood River Day at Portland ! Well, wit,h thirteen cars well packed with men, women and children, full of lite and fun, bound to make merry the day, we left Hood inver ai i a. in With the veil. "Who are no.'" we sped along beside the old Columbia, whose waters have rolled on for ages. If they could but speak what talcs might be told. Wo pass t lie towering mountains and rocky blulfs, with little streams and rivulets and high towering falls. Wo cross the old Will amette river, arriving at Union depot, Portland, in good shape at '.i:'M. The boys gave the yell, "Who are war" in good shape; lined up in cn street for tho march with Colonel Shelley mounted on his charger as marshal of tho day. Following i;i the line are largo wagons loaded with pur school children. Nearby may be seen Professor Thompson with his big red apple hoisted on a long gavel. After parading the street we llnd ourselves seated in street cars on tho way to the fair grounds, were we are soon separated and lost in the throng of pleasure seekors. A visit to Agricultural hall, where No trouble at all to keep clean If you have plenty of soap and water. Nature will furnish you the water and we will furnish you THE SOAP and you can do the rest.

Reliable Druggists every one is looking for their own comity exhibit, everything was just grand, and many I found who were inquiring for the Hood River exhib its, thowing that our valley is knoau far and near. The Roosevelt cabin will not be forgotten because of tho man who occupied it in days gone by. We must mention tho exhibit of the Wadhams and Kerr liros. A crowd of people are quietly waiting their turn to be served with coffee in a nice dainty cup from the hands of the lady in charge. Of course tlio writer had a taste of the coll'ee, and must say that it was tine and was highly spoken of by all; the brand is Red Cross, anil you can get it at Rockford store. The Forestry bulldiug is simply grand. The California building told of the land of goli, fruit aud grain. On the Ti ail is tho din and yell of men and women olforing their wares for sale. On the way to the Govern ment building wo visit the stock where we see very tine cattle, and as we view the coach horse and hunters tho blood warms up, for it carries the mind back to younger days with our feet in tho stirrups, mounted on a dory steed at the sound of the horn and a liiintsmau's whip wilh the hounds in full chnso and old Knynnid leading tho hounds iu an intricate path Hut tliove (lays are gone. Lt t us still bo merry and iniiko othir hearts glad. A visit to the boys' ai.d girls' home and anil much has been seen. Asceudiug tho tteps to tint homo is seen a man with a large giip full of nice eating apples purchased from J. J. Gibbous and presented to the homo for the homeless of the in stitution. Ho we trust thier little hearts were made glad. A visit on i-iaturday to the fair, thousands of UDople might be seen. In the morn ing the soldiers paraded in duo shape Hid were complimented by the peo ple. The air ship made a few voyages in space above the earth. A pleasant trip on tho little boat from tho grounds to Morrison street bridge for tho sum of 10 cents was quite a treat. Wo made our head quarters at the St. Charles hotel, where we had good quarters. T..e gonial proprietor of the restaurant, W. M. Robinson, served up meals in line shapo. Ou Friday over 'Mi meals were served for the small sum of cents, when across tho way the barber cliargil 45 cents for a shavo anil a wipe down on your face with cream. Much more might be said, but I must clone by ni-king the editor t" bear with me in my long writoup. Of course you know tho writer. It is Rockford.

As there bus not been anything from this place iu the Olacier for some lime, a few notes might be of inter cut. Tho all absorbing question now is tho railroad, or rather, as the railroad seems to be an assured fact, where the depot is to be; and as there has boon no announcement made by the company where the station will be, the question is open for the people to talk about. Three places are taken into consid eration by the people Underwood, White Salmon and iiingen. Under wood claims the short route to Camas i'raii io and Trout Lrfike. White Sal mon: Is it the little town on the blulf. lt is rather doubtful that a railroad will climb the celebrated 350 stops to make the town a station. Or is it greater White Salmon includ ing a part of the bottom? lint the Portland big dailies, the (loldondalo papers, and even the (Ha uler have It on maps, or otherwise, that the north hank railroad will be located through White Salmon ; there fore, it ought to be otrrect. And what of lilngen? . Very little attention has lieen paid to the place. though it is without exception the most beaiuirul town site on the Col umbia; also tho most practioal loca tiou for depot and sidetracks. Where will the station be? No surveying has been done near Uingon. One surveying crew is work ing down from Lyle. The Maple Hotel has changed bauds. Mrs. Hanson of Portland has taken chargo of it.
