Johns and Crawford are highly opto-
mistic, while Dimick asserts that he
will carry Multnomah County by a
good plurality. Geer and Brownell

they will turn to close a su-ceeslul race.

On Friday evening, May 8th, the G.
A. R. Circle and tome of tbe members
of Reubin Wilson Poet gave Comrade
Drake a surprise on hie eighty-sixth
birthday, at his home on tbe corner of
i Third and Marie. To say he was sur-
| prised is putting it very mildly.
There were two tone, six grand
children, and six great-grand-children
present. The «.rening was spent in
playing games, telling stories and sing
ing “oiige. Comrade Hummel favored
them with a German song. They also
sang one of the latest songs which
made a great hit. The eong was en*
titled, "Go Teli Aunt Rodey Her Old
Gray Goose is Dead.”
Comrade Drake received present*
from Comrade Hummel, Comrade An
derson, Mr. and Mrs. Herman, Miss
Cleo Briggs, Mre. Nora Briggs, and

Every one went there to have a good
time and they had it. After partaking
of a fine lunch ¡.bey ail bid Mr. Drake
good night and wished him many more
birthdays. Comrade Drake’s mind is
as clear as a school boy’s and he walks
off very fast, and to all appearances he
will live a good many years.

eastern investor, who will take im

24 acres, well improved, with a good
dwelling. The sale price was $0500.
J. S Stansberry, county fruit inspector,
is urging a campaign against the cater
pillar at this time. He points out the
necessity of every one who has trees
seeing that they are not infested with
caterpillars, and urges that these trees
be sprayed against the breeding of eater
pillars. Mr. Stanebery says that many
people who have trees that may be in
fested may not be aware of this fact.
These are the danger point, he said, and
are the breeding places of the caterpillar
family. Mr. Stransberry, however, says
that the trees are freer from caterpillars
at present than ever before.
