Lents Boy Plunges To HIs Death In
Chill Waters Of The Tualatin.
The “Oregonian" of Saturday, the
16th inat., chronicled the death by
drowning of Will Christensen, son of
Mr. Louis Christensen, a farmer resid
ing near Sherwood. The unfortunate
boy is a brother of Mrs. Dr. Ogabnry and
is well known in Lente, having made
his home here with his sister for the
past three years. He was employed at
the Otis Elevator Works, leaving here
only a few weeks ago to assist his father
on his ranch near Sherwood.
Shortly after dinner on Friday of last
week Will, in company with a number
of other boys, all of whom had been
working on the farm, went for a swim
in the Tualatin river which passes
through the Christensen place. It is
thought that Will and Evan Owens, the
other victim of the tragedy, must have
lieen taken with cramp« brought on by
plunging into the cold water while in an
overheated condition. The liodies were
not recovered until eight o'clock in the
evening. They were found within ten
feet of the place where they were last

The Mt. Scott Park is now open and
rapidly liecoming known as a pleasant
place to while away the hours these
warm summer days.
Mrs. Travis is now in charge as lady
attendant to look after the interests of
women and children. Mr. Daubach is
also on hand to help the boys have a
good time and keep things straight.
The people of this vicinity are anxious
to improve the park as much as pos
sible. To this end they are planning
to construct a tennis court. The park
commissoner has told Mr. Jesse A.
Dunbar that if the men and boys
would do the work the city would fur
nish the apparatus. This seems to be a
fair proposition. It would probably be
a gixxl thing for those interested to get
in toncTi with Mr. Daubach and Mrs.
Travis and unite upon a program that
will result in a park that will be a
credit to the Mt. Scott District.

DAD AND THE WEEKLY
He Knocks It But Hollers When It
Falls To Come.
Sometimes dad says the paper some
how ain’t got up right, and he does a
lot of kickin’ when he reads it Thurs
day night. He says there ain’t a dad-
burned thing in it worth while to read,
an’ that it doesn't print the kind of
stuff the people need. He throws it in
the comer ai.J «ays its on the bum—
but you’d oughter hear him holler when
the weekly fails to come.
He reads about the weddings and
snorts like all git out, he reads the social
columns with a most derisive shout.
He'll read about the parties and he’ll
fuss and groan and say, they print the
paper for women folks alone. He says
that of information it don’t contain a
crumb—but you oughter hear him
holler when the weekly fails to come.
He’s always first to grab it and he
reads it through and through—he
doesn’t miss an item or a want ad. old
or new. He says “They don't know
what we want, them newspaper guys.

and put them wise.” If editors were wise
as dad they’d sure be going some, but
you’d oughter hear him holler when the
weekly fails to come.
And when dad goes 'way and stays a
day or two, I tell you he gets riled and
says awful things he’ll do, if the paper
failed to memtion him as being out of
town—well, he almost hae a notion to
knock some printer down. He never
does, however, when he sees one he is

SECOND EA6AN IN LENTS
"Dirty Joe.” A Woman, And Some
Children Prey Upon Community
And Make Many Steals.
A series of petty burglaries and
depredations in t’>e vicinity of Lenta,
covering a period of several months,
have at last culminated in the appre
hension of the culprits, who by their
own confession have carried on a
systematic business of stealing and
selling their ill-gotten wares whenever
and wherever possible. With one ex
ception the gang is composed of chil
dren, one or two of whom have long
been under suspicion.
The matter was brought to light on
Tuesday bv the arrest of Max Stark,
known in the district where be resides
as "Dirty Joe,’’ who was charged with
conducting a second hand store without
a license and also with receiving stolen
goods. It developed that hie place was

thieves consisting of Frank and
