HOOD'RIVER GLACIER, THURSDAY, JANUARY 4, 1906.
FREDDIE BOWEN TELLS HOW HE WON CLOTHES Freddie liowen, who won the unit of clothes offered by Ederheiiuer, Stehi &. Co. through Frank A. Oram, their local agent at Hood1 Klver, to the first boy who ehoull detect their agent when be visited thin city, bag received h communication from that fl tn Bhklnrf him to tell them bow be dixcoverud him. Freddie has answered the letter, and tbis la how it reads: Put. rm ber 29, 1905. Messrs. Ederheimer, Stciu & Co. Ueutlumeu: Yuurn of the l'tth lust. at hand. In reply will say, I am very much pleitsed with my new suit of clot hen. It titn like the muzzle on a calf's nose and all the boys in town are M-aloun of me, und mother is tick led to death. 'I lie ouly regret is that yon did not pad the pauU a little. as I am going to school and don't get along very noil with my teacher. But tuking al' into consideration, I am delighted with the deal and wish I could get all my clothe as easy as 1 did thut Hint. 1 think you are Hue lot of fellows, and wbeu I get big I am going to Chicago to see you, and maybe you will give me a job. I like your salesman, Mr. Claybaugh, very much, too, and the way I got next to him would make a Pinkerton man turn green with envy. You see 1 am shining shoes at the Mount Hood Hotel, one of the most popular resorts on the Pacific coast, where all first class people stop. When Mr. Claybaugh got into the chair to have his shoes shiiied, I could see he was no cheap guy, so I said, "Are you from Kderlieimer, Stein & Co. " and he smilod and said "Yes," and then gave me an order for the new suit, according to agreement. Well, 1 guess I will close by wishing you aJl a happy Iow rear. Very truly yours Freddie Bcwen. P. S. Is Chicago as big as Hood River? Some Principle of drafting. The first thing to be cotisid red by the ft'ti it grower or nurseryman who wishes to propagate new stock or ohaiigo old ones by the grafting pro cess is, will such und suoh trees or shrubs unite their wood cells closely and strongly so as to make a new and perfect tree? Never, to my knowledge, have trees of different families been made to unite their woods sufficiently to make a lasting uniou. Many attempts have succeeded fur enough only to form an unstable graft that would break apart sooner or later and generally before the end of a year. Again, it is often quite impractica ble to obtain a good union between members of the same family. The rose family, to which most of our wes tern fruits bt long, is divided into sub families or tribes, and it is found un natural for the members of one tribe to graft with another tribe or sub family. For intsunce, the apple and pear which belong to one tribe of the rose family, will not unite with the plum, pouch or cherry, which bolong to another tribe or tribes of the rose family, in other words, you cannot graft successfully the stone fruits with the pome fruits. It is still more im practicable ti graft any of these fruits upon the most of our common forest trees, which bel :ig to widely differ ent families. The successful propaga tor goes still further than this, in that he Duds it to his interests to study the common likes and dislikes for each other among the various em bers of the same family. For instance, the peach and plum are very commou ly gra ted or budded back and forth upou each other. There are certain varieties ot those fruits, however, that are found to be better adapted to each other than another, and it is for the uurserymau or horticulturalist to discover these varieties that "work" best together. The peach is a desirable and appro priate stock for certain varieties of the p urn, but there are certain varie ties that do not form a perfect and Listing union with the peach. I re member at the time the Hawkeye plum was first introduced of buying about ten of the trees at ?1 each. They wero budded on the peach and wore tl no, thrifty trees as come from the hands of the nurseryman. I set them out in the orchard, expecting quick and desirable returns frum them. They had stood hardly two years in the orchard before the; be gan to show signs of weakness they began to look runty. 1 dug them out, one by one, and found a lack of cougeuiality between the top and the root. They wero like some people we hear so olteu about perhaps know some of them who get married on sight, and after a few mouths, or at most a few years, they find a remedy for their uncongenial alliance in the divorce conr's. The piactice that prevails to quite an extent among our nurserymen of propagating these uncongenial varie ties upon each other is done for the mere sake nf gain, or In other words, the trees, like Hodge's razors, "are mad ti sell. " And this reminds me, too, that the man or woman who mar ries for the sake of sordid gain or po sition meets a fate similar to these tame razors. L. O. Williams. The Halky Hers-. Nine limes out of ten a bulxy horse is tho result of a balky driver. Many high strung and nervous horses are completely ruined by bad manage ment on the part of the one working them. If the attention of a balking horse ciu be diverted, half of the trou ble U orer, yet bow few men will re fraiu from beating him at such times. When a horse is inclined to be balky he should be put in charge of the bet horseman about the place, and not driven by every one on the farm. If he is inclined to stop say "whoa !" sharply. '1 hen he will not think be is stopping of hi ou free will. (Jet down and walk about him, lifting Dp cue foot und then another, tapping them with a stone may answer in di verting his attention ; pretend to flx his collar, perhap bis mane is under it an i needs attention. There are many ways of diverting a horse's at tention to make biiu to get bis bad h iliits, like pouring a little water I u in -earn oi rubbing sand in bis mouth, lheu if you speak to the quiet horse alongside' of him tbey may start off together or they may not. In any event keep cool. One scheme may work this ti e and may never work ou the same horse again. The ouly alternative is to be iugenious,patient, long suffering and kind until you Und some other fellow that wants to take a hand at driving a balky horse. The Farmer. TranHplantlns Trees. . Mtofthe trees that are trpns plauted come from the Juorsery. Soma are shipped many hundred milts, while others come from local or nearby nnrseries. in either case upon receipt of the trees the buyer should see that the roots are in a moist condition and not left to dry out, says Prof. E. E. Little in "Wal lace's Farmer. " If tbe weather con ditions are unfavorable for planting, or work so pressing that tbey cannot be planted upon arrival, tbey should be left in the bundle, should be well packed aud kept in a cool cellar, or tboy can be takeu from the handle and tbe roots covered with soil, pro viding the hard freezing weather is over. In transplanting great eare should be exercised not to disturb the natur al condition of the plant. Where tbe root system has been partly destroyed by the operation tbe plant baa been checked in its natural growth. Tbe ouly way to overcome this injury is to plant with such care that tbe con ditions surrounding it are favorable for restoring its vitality. Tbe older tbe tree the greater check it receives. To aid the roots in getting a new start it la a good plan t cut back tbe branches one third to one-half their length. A main central stem should always be left. If any of tbe roots are torn or mangled, cut off thia por tion, leaving the roots strong and unbroken. Before tbe plants are taken np for setting tbe boles should be dug suffi ciently large ad deep to allow tbe tree to be set a few inohes deeper than it stood in tbe nursery. Colmau's Kural World. BY THE WAY The Good Old Apple Time. Away in the glow of our boyhood's days When hearts were silly and free, We told our fortunes with apple seeds That grew on a seedling tree. 'Round the blazing hearth of a win ter's night, With comrade merry and gay, As the wind roared loud up tbe chim ney's throat, We chattered tbe hours away. And with rhyme, and tale, and a merry jest We passed the laughter about, Till tbe old corn popper and sack of corn From tbe "cellar-way" came out. And up from the cellar's crowded bins Were the apple bowls piled bigb, Then one an apple would peel so thin, While tbe jeering crowd stood by. "Three twirls round your head and a nay it goes, Your sweetheart's initial to spell," For apples wete witches with rosy cheeks 'And a fellow's secrets might tell. "Name for your sweetheart, and wish a wish Aud count tbe seeds they enfold." Ah ! many a fortune grave or gay Have the little black apple seeds told. Count, "One, I love and two I love And three 1 love I say, Four I love with all my heart And five I oast away. Six. he loves; seven, she loves; Fight, they both love, Niue, he comes; teu, he tarries; Eleven, he courts, and twelve, be mames. " Ah, days of kughler and days of youth, What romance the old time yields. But Spencer has stolon our seeds away, 0, Burliank, leave us our peels. Maude Meriditb, A lady who couteiuila es remodel ing her hou.e uitoss the river was beard to remark tu.it she was "going to build a condition to ber residence so she could ascertain htr friends with more hostility." She al.-o was "going to bave a purgatory ou top of tbe bouse and a memorandum lit up with indecent lights for them to lem onade in." Nnm Vnyir innJi 1 ftVl OOO n An, nC" a ui am d'uuud v t i jw a unj for drink, according to the Rev. Mad ison C. Peters, of Ephipbany Baptist church. He gave bis congregation some figures ou the subject today, says a .New lork dispatch. New lork s annual liquor bill is j:iuT),o(io,ooo. This is more than the incomes from the tariff. Four times the annual gold output. Six time tbe yearly silver produc tion. One-third the value of all coal min ed in a year. In some sections of JNew York tbere is one saloon to every 30 families. The money spent here in 10 years for liquor would buy every working man a home in the suburbs. New York's annual diiuk bill will buy : 73.000.000 barrels of floir: 730.- 000 wagon loads of wheat. It would take 50 persons a year to count tbe money in 91 notes. There are 240,000 liquor dealers in tne United States. "Men who wear glasses are not at tractive to women," said the come dian, Joseph Coyne, in a Washington club. "The fact was .forcibly brought home to me on a railway jounrey re cently." "Ibe drawing room of the carl was riding in was occupied by a bride aud groom she very pretty, he ugly and weak-eyed, but a millionaire. -'From where I sat it wag possible to overbear a good deal that went on in tbe drawing room. This is one ot tbe things I overheard: " 'Ob George, 9 by do you make faces at me like that?' " 'I can't help it, darling. My glasses are falling off, and I don't want to lot go of your bands.' Denver Times. "Hawaiian servants," said a woman with ton e experience of them to a writer in Modern eocietj, "are tbe best iu the woijd, hut tbey are straugely unsophisticated, strangely naive, incy insist on caning you by your first uame, Ours was always saying to my husband, " 'Yes, John,' or AJ right, John,' and to me, 'Very well, Ann,' or 'Ann, I am go ing out. ' At last I got tired of this. and to John, when we got new cook, isaid: uoo ( ever call ma by my first name in tbe new cook's presence. Then, perhaps, uot knowing my name, he'll bave to say Mrs. to me.' So John was very oareful always to ad dress me as 'Dearie' or 'Sweetheart,' but the new oouk, a watchful chap, gave me no title at all "One day we bad some company, some English officers, i told them bow I bad overcome in my new cook's case, tbe native servants' horrible abuse of their employers' Christian names, and 1 said : 'By this servant, at least, you won't bear me called Anu. ' just tbeu the new cook enter ed the room. He bowed to me re spectfully and said : " 'Sweetheart, dinner is ready.' " 'What!' 1 stammered. " 'Dinner is served, dearie 1' an swered tbe new cook." WESTERN FRUIT FOR KINGS AND EMPERORS Tbe following article taken from the Yakima Kepublio will prove interest ing reading for Hood River apple growers : "Fifty boxes of Yakima apples were furnished to J. J. Hill to be need by Dim aa presents to some of tbe crown ed heads of Europe and dignitaries or America, these apples were fur nished by tbe Yakima growers, but none of tbe growers knew where tbey were going to be used. About half the number were sent out by Agent Meeka to Mr. Hill aud the other half were shipped by the Northern Pacific Express company. tbe apples Mr. Hill will give to his intimate friends in the East. One box will go to President Roosevelt and tbe rest of them will be sent to King Edward, King Wilbelm, tbe czar and the rulers .f other countries. Tbe apples are tbe best that were grown iu tbe Yakima valley last year and fancy prices were paid for them. Such a rec ognition of tbe superior quality of Yakima over other apple growing dis tricts of America ia something for the people here to be proud ot. " If the palates and eye ot King Ed ward, Emperor William and the Czar should be pleased with the apples sent them by M. Hill, we should like to have tbem sample some of the Hood River product. We are inolined to think that King Edward would for once foget to pose, tbe bellicose Ger man emperor leave off twirling his warlike mustache, and tbe Czar for get his troubles, at the sight of fruit that has no peer anywhere. Indigestion Overcome. Indigestion is easily overcome by the use of Kodol Dyspepsia Cure, because this remedy digests w hat you eat and gives the stomach a rest allows it to recuperate and grow strong again. Kodol relieves Indigestion, Belching of Gas Hour Stomach, Heart-Burn, etc., and enables the digestiveorgans to trans form all foods into the kind of rich red blood that makes health and strength. Sold by G. E. Williams. Advertising. Tbe farmer has faith. He sees good oorn going into a pig without having a qualm of fear. He knows that it is a good investment of feed and will pay him. Tbe advertiser has not the same faith at times. He has a spasm every time he puts a little money into an advertisement. Yet the money be invests in this way pays the adver tiser, just as tbe oorn put into the stomach of the pig pays the farmer. Exchange. Soothing and Comforting:. The soothing and comforting effects of DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve, when applied to Piles sores, cuts, boils, etc., subdues pain almost instantly. This Salve draws out the inflammation, re duces swelling and acts as a rubefacient, thus circulating the blo'id through tbe diseased parts, perniiiting or aiding Nature to permanently r. move tbe trou ble entirely.

This load crosses the Cascades about 35 miles south of The Dalles. Crook County Journal.
