One of the newest and coziest
residences in this city is shown this
week, the home of Mr. and Mrs. A.
L. Stone. Only a few short years
ago, not more than two, the prop
erty on the north side of Nigger
Creek was looked uon as !eing too
far out in the country to make a
desirable location for a home. Hut
Mr." and Mrs. Stone decided that
there was no more desirable loca
tion in the city for a home, so they
secured a couple of lots and erected
thereon the !eautifu! bungalow
shown in this picture. It is situ
ated on a blulT overlooking the
Columbia River, furnishing a view
for about 10 miles up and down the
river. During the summer months
the gentle breeze from the Colum
bia Ib wafted through the house of
the Stones, making it an ideal place
for a home. Since the Stone house
was built other beautiful homes
have been erected there until it has
become one of the choice portions
of the city.
Mrs. A. J. Defiling entertained in
formally on Thursday afternoon with a
card party in honor of Minn Adeline
Allen of Spokane. Two table of five
hundred were played, with Miss Ada
George holding the high score. Dainty
refreshment! were served. Those
present were: Miases Allen, Harris,
George, Perry, Muckle, Ketel, Mrs.
Eugene Illakesley and Mrs. I)eming.

the benefit of their skijl and many

When workmen demolished the
steeple of the Methodist church here
this week, tho old corner stone was
removed and several old articles taken
out, among thrm being an issue of the
Oregon Mist of March 2:ird, 1900.
The Mist was then edited by David
Davis and there sre several interesting
articles contained. An item or par
' itcular interest reads: "Work was be
gun on Tuesday by the Multnomah
i county rommissioneis on the building
of s bicycle path from Portland toward
the Columbia county line. The path
will be improved for a distance of
seventeen miles. If a path from St.
Helena to the county line could be
made, wheeling from here to Poitland
would be pleasant instead of irksome."
