head of the Union Meat Co., Port

going extensively into the business
of livestock, raising. During 1911
more than half the total number of
hogs received at the Portland mar
ket came from Nebraska. Ijist
year this number decreased to a re
markable extent and now It ap
pears that Oregon w ill not need to
import any more pork in order to
feed its own people. On the other

NEW OFFICE BUILDING
EINE EDIFICE OF ST. HELENS
LUMBER CO. ABOUT COMPLETED
The ofice of the St. Helens Lum
ber Co. is nearly completed and is
one of the finest finished
buildings in the state. The lower
floor is very handily arranged in
sections, finished with the product
of the mill here, beautifully stained
and painted. The main room is
large and commodious w ith every
niodern convenience, while the pri
vate rooms are most tastefully and
handily arranged. The building I
also quite an imposing structure
and stands out as one of the very
best of the large new buildings
erected and under construction in
our little city. The large columns
on the concrete piers makes the j
building very substantial. The car-1
penter work has been under the
very efficient management of U. W.j
Clark of Hou'ton. while the paint
ing and decoraiing was done by R.
C. McCoy, the well known St.
Helens painter. The work of these
men speaks very highly of their pro
liency in the work engaged inly
them and is the best advertisement
they could get. The building is a
credit to the St. Helens Lumber
Company and the city of St, Helens.
