BACK FROM THE ROUND-UP
SI. HELENS PEOPLE ENJOY GREAT
SHOW. MIST GIRLS PLEASED
Last Sunday morning a jolly
party of St. Helena and Columbia
County pwple returned from the
Kound-Up at Pendleton, each and
every one loud in praise of the
wonderful out door show at that
place and of the really enjoyable
time had on the trip. The six
yountf ladies who were guests of
i. . i f : i. i
l"e m'sl w ' re 10 lne crowa Rna
" "l l"t,,n "Presseu ueugni
m me inp. a special car was
secured by the Mist for the use
of the St. Helens crowd and each
member of the party was wear
ing a large button reading "St.
Helens to Pendleton; Mist
Special 1913; Let'er Buck," so
that it was easy to distinquish
the crowd. And in I'endleton,
too, after a few hours, the St.
Helens party was soon recog
nized as a live wire advertising
medium" for the best town and
county in the state. The car
occupied by the St. Helens peo
ple was the best in the train; a
large 16-section Pullman, all
steel and located next to the din
ing car. For three nights and
two days the party occupied this
car, day and night, every Ac
commodation being afforded. The
train was parked within a hun
dred yards of the Kound-Up
grounds at Pendleton, making it
handy and convenient. The
Round-Up is the greatest show
on earth. That is all that can be
said about it The exhibitions
of riding, roping, racing, bull
dogging and handling wild
horses and cattle are too exciting
and interesting to undertake to
describe, while the Indian war
dances and loud costumes are
worth the trip alone. It is a
show that every man and woman
living in the western country
should see. People say that they
cannot afford to take the trip,
but a better and more apt say
ing would be that people cannot
afford to miss it. The expense is
nominal and the accommodations
are of the very best. With the
amount of advertising the show
will get from those who attend
ed this year there should be no
difficulty in filling four or five
Pullman cars for next year's
trip from this county. Those in
the Mist car this year were Mr.
and Mrs. J. H. Wellington. J. H.
Price. Mr. Ames, GeneBlakesley,
Lester Wellington. L. R. Ruther
ford. Mrs. I. K. Dodd. Mrs. Ira
Withrow, Misses Kate Baker,
Fannie Cooper, Esther Weigle.
Dottie Pringle, Wilma Pulliam,
Mr. and Mrs. M. E. Miller. Other
St. Helens people were Misses
Nellie and Erne Perkins and
Hayes Estabrook. ,

OFEICIALS VISIT ST. HELENS
R. R. COMMISSION ANO
R. R. OFFICIALS OF S. P. & S.
On Thursday, the 11th of this
month the members of the Rail
road Commission of Oregon, T.
K. Campbell, C. B. Aitchison and
F. J. Miller spent the day in St.
Helens and vicinity looking over
the city They were accompanied
by several officials of the S. P. &
S. Ry co., including Mr. Russell,
Mr. Habersham, Mr. McGuire
and others. They were shown
over the city and the various in
dustries here and the question
of putting in a new depot at
Houlton was discussed, and also
the proposition of giving St. Hel
ens a depot. All expressed them
selves as surprised at the won
derful growth of our little city
and also gave expression favor
able to the establishment of a
depot for St. Helens, either under
the consolidation plan, or, if that
could not be accomplished, one
for st. Helens alone. The busi
ness of the city is sufficient to
warrant such a depot, and the
officials, both of the railroad com
pany and the state, recognize it.
MR. AND MRS. M. C. GRAY ARE
ENTERTAINED BY MANY FRIENDS
Mr. and Mrs. M. C, Gray were
most completely and agreeably sur
prised by about 30 of their friends
at the Gray home last Tuesday
evening. Mr. and Mrs. Gray were
invited to the residence of Rev.
Luther during the evening and
shortly after arriving there a tele
peone call urged them to come
home as there were some parties
there to look over the furnitur
they have for sale. Upon entering
the home, which w as in darkness,
they were thrown into confusion by
the crowd of people who had as-
sembled there. Refreshments were
served and a most enjoyable time
was had by the entire party. Mr.
and Mrs. Gray will soon leave St.
Helens for their new home in
RECEPTION TO TEACHERS
On the night of Sept 5th the j
teachers of the public school were
tendered a reception in the City
Hall by the Epworth League of the
M. E. church. The hall was ar
tiscally decorated with pennants,
flowers and ferns. Mayor Mueller
gave the address of welcome and
Supt. Kilgore responded in behalf
of the teachers. Sereral musical
numbers followed, after which a re
ception line was formed and the
, public was given the pleasure of be
coming acquainted with the teach
ers. A social time followed, dur
ing which punch was served. The
reception has become an annual
affaii and seems to be enjoyed by all.

special meeting next Tuesday night
at Castle Hall, at which time and

said "Gladstone's rule even in his
older years was that of a "twicer''

Church going, he said was not a

expect a lot of them. I have the
buildings ready now and it is up to
you to fill them and make the fair
a success. Come and bring some
thing with you for one or more of
the buildings. There is no one but
