County Fruit Inspector J. W.
I'omeroy of Scappoose was in St.
Helens Monday inspecting the fruits
in the markets here. As a result
la boxes of scaly apples were
dumped in the river and others
were coal oiled. At the recent
meeting of the inspectors from
various parts of the state it was
decided by them to insist upon the
laws providing for clean fruit being
strictly enforced. The county
papers were called upon to assist
the inspectors in the matter of
publicity of law violations. Mr
I'omeroy says that he will enforce
the laws strictly in this county and
that the fruit men are expected to
do their part. It would be a great
advantage to all concerned, grower
and consumer, if proper spraying
was done and clean fruit only
raised and sold,
During the dense fog of last
Monday the Harvest Queen in
making a landing at St. Helens,
backed into the old wood dock,
resulting in a damaged wheel on
the boat and the breaking down
of some of the old piling of the
dock. The only regrettable feat
ure of the whole affair, looking
at it from the view point of a St
Helens citizen, and aside from
the damage done to the fine river
steamer, was that the entire old
unsightly and dangerous dock
was not entirely demolished.
The Hassalo has been on the run
in place of the Queen since that
time, while the Queen is being

A drunken passenger on the
Iralda last Monday coming down
fom caused a near
panic among the passengers and
had several fights with the crew
of the boat. The man was armed
with a revolver first, which,
when displayed, was promptly
wrested from him by one of the
boat crew. Then he displayed
a razor and was making threats
and actions as if to carve up
somebody, he was not particular
who, when the members of the
crew took that away from him
also. After some little time the
crazed man again became vio
lent and pulled out a long bladed
knife and was making life miser
able for passengers in the ladies
cabin when he received a short
arm jab on ' the nose, delivered
by the engineer of the boat and
the man went down and out. He
was then searched and all effects
taken from him and he became
peaceable. At Rainier the Mar
shal took him in charge and
placed him in jail.

Dates Mixed
I). Ernest Randall was adver
tised to appear at the City Hall
last Tuesday night as the third ,
number of the Lyceum Course,
but somebody got their dates
mixed. Hy applying the process
of elimination as to who was at
fault it looks like the Mist will
have to bear the burden of mak
ing the error. However nobody
was damaged very much and we
will make up for it in boosting
for the Lyceum Course from
now on, as we have done hereto
fore. Mr. Randall, the famous
cartoonist will appear at the City
Hull on January 16th, instead of
December 10th, so don't forget
the date this time. He will posi
tively be here on that date and
will positively please every per
son who attends the entertainment.

lots in good location in St. Helens
