St. Helena, it can truthfully be said,
posseaaes many advantages for a cream
ery, and we believe that should tbere
be an effort put forth by our business
men such an enterprise could be se
cured. Parties in the East are contem
plating coming West to engage in tbe
creamery buainess, and if a small vflort
were made their location at this place
could be secured. The benefit to the
town of such a concern nesd not be
oommented upon, but a few facts in
regard to the advantages the place
oll'ars are not out of place. For In
stance, the location can be said to be
unequalled, as it is the practical cen
tral shipping point for the country
lying below on the Columbia, above
en the Columbia, along Willamette
slough, and for all the country back
of ii. It is a point at which could
profitably center all the produce in this
line for many miles around it. Daily
steamers touch here from tbe dairying
sections in every direction, and trans
portation rates are so cheap that milk
and cream could be shipped here at
nominal oost. Such an enterprise
would stimulate the dairying industry,
ss it would afford market fur all the
milk of the surrounding country, and
the benefit would be direct and lasting.
Our farmers and dairymen would re
ceive the money for their produce here
at home, and as a natural consequence
the greater part of It would be spent
here. Let our business men consider
this matter witb a little seriousness,
and we believe tbe result would be tbe
establishment of a creamery in our
town. : .
Last Saturday night, at the home of
Mr. and Mra. Jacob Rrous, at Rainier,
was celebrated the tenth anniversary
of the wedding of tbia popular couple
in such a manner as to make tbe oc

those whose good fortune it was to at
tend. Mr. and Mra. Brous are well
and most favorably known to Colum
bia county people, and tbe faot of their
announcing their intention to cele
brate their "tin" wedding was all that
was necessary to insure a good time,
which, from reports, waa certainly the
result. Those who attended were : Mr.
and Mra. J. Brous, Capt. and Mra. C.
I. Hooghkirk, Mr. and Mrs. A. L.
Clark, Mr. and Mrs. Scbumason, Mr.
and Mrs. Robert Johnson, Mr. and

A paper to be Arst-class, must nec
