the sympathy of the community
goes out to them in their great sor­

One of the first official .acta per­
taining to establishing park» and
playground» in the City by City Com­
missioner Pier will be a survey of
aitea. The measure for the establish­
ing of additional parka and play­
ground» was passed by the voter» at
the recent election by a large ma­
jority. These aitea will be estab­
lished, where possible, in done prox­
imity to the public school» so a» to
afford plenty of playground for the
h school children. Seven acres in front
of the Franklin high school will in
all probability be converted into a
handsome park, and the Albina,
Peninsula and Irvington district» will
also be assured of additional recrea­
tion beauty »pots. The Irvington
club has made a proposition to Com­
missioner Pier that if the city would
lake over the club's indebtedness of
115,000 the city could have the prop­
erty, and it is vory likely Mr. Pier
will accept the offer.
As soon as the city planning com­
mission ha» made its final recom­
mendation and report Mr. Pier will
immediately proceed to notify the
park bureau, which is now in his de­
partment, to make all necessary ar­
rangements to clear off the ground»
and put them in condition before the
rainy season sets in.

The Christian Endcavorers of the
Friends church held their monthly
business meeting and social Friday,
July 11, at the home of the Tamp-
lins. The meeting began with a
goodly number present, and they
kept coming in until there were
about 30 present when refreshments
were served.
Several items of interest were dis­
cussed and * good degree of interest
shown. One special action taken was
to pledge their support to the En­
deavor paper published by the Y. M.
committee and to give the money
usually spent in the union for the
paper. They also voted to raise
money to buy new song books for
the church. Martha Isler and Bertha
Barker were appointed as leaders to
divide the society into equal num­
bers and enter into a friendly con­
test to raise the money. After the
business meeting a pleasant hour
was spent in games and singing. The
society was specially glad to have

In addition to the Sunday school
hour each day on the Gladstone Chau­
tauqua program, the state associa­
tion maintains headquarters at the
Chautauqua during the entire session.
In the absence of Yiarold Humbert,
general secretary of the association,
who is attending a summer confer­
ence at Lake Geneva, Wis., Miss
Georgia Parker, office secretary and
superintendent of the children’s di­
vision of the association, has charge
of the work at Gladstone.
The morning Sunday school ses­
sions during the Chautauqua are also
conducted by the State Sunday
School association. Last Sunday Ell-
ton Shaw, superintendent of the Mt.
Tabor Presbyterian Sunday school,
conducted the chautauqua Sunday
school. Assisting Mr. Shaw were
Mrs. Carl Smith of Jennings Ixxige,
with the juniors, and Mrs. J. H.
Zehrung, of Portland, with the pri­
mary children.
The orchestra of the Mt. Tabor
Sunday school and a number of other
workers of the local school, 31 per­
sons in all, assisted in making the
big Sunday school of 700 persons a
pronounced success. The offering
taken, which goes to the state asso­
ciation, amounted to just $25.
The Mt. Tabor contingent went to
Gladstone by auto, had a big picnic
dinner, and remained for the eve­
ning to listen to Mr. Bryan.

The Gresham cannery is a busy
place these days. There is a big rush
on hand to put the fruit through it«
processes as fast as it is received.
The warehouse in filling up with cam*
waiting shipment, while crates upon
crates are being unloaded at the re­
ceiving room.
Ideal weather is making the fruit
ripen fart. There is a shortage of
hands, but so far, with every employe
exerting every energy, ail the fruit
has been cared for in good time. Al­
though unable to run full capacity,
nevertheless 16,000 cans of fruit are
produced daily, almost a hundred
thousand cans a week. That means
a payroll for labor alone amounting
to $2000 per week. The cannery plys
out approximately $25,000 a week for
fruit — $25,000 for the local fruit
Mr. Fisher, the manager, said that
this year the cannery is running at
a disadvantage, but even so results
are decidedly gratifying. For an­
other year, provisions for ample help
will be made early in the season and
all other necessary arrangements will
have been made before opening time.
He also predicts a great berry fu­
ture for this locality, which of course
means a big canning business. Trans­
portation difficulties will eventually
be overcome.
Raspberries are selling at $300 per
ton. The yield this year is much
heavier than last year’s, in some
patches almost double. Blackcaps at
11 cents—over $200 per ton—yielding
in places four tons to the acre—ove-
$800 from one acre.

sounds like a fortune. That tne
prices are up to stay is - assured.

point 94 feet north of the center lin
of Thirty-sixth avenue 3. E., ex­
tended, to a point 97 feet south of
the center line of Thirty-eighth ave­
nue 8. E.. extended west; thence west
through private property to a con­
nection with the proposed south
branch of the Rhine street sewer.
In Thirty-sixth avenue S. E. from
a point 436 feet east of the center
line of Fifty-fourth street 8. E. to
the proposed sewer in Fifty-second
street 8. E.

second street 8. E.
In Thirty-eighth avenue S. E. from
the cast line of Fifty-sixth street 8.
E. to the proposed sewer in Fifty-
second street S. E.
In Foster road from the center line
of Forty-first avenue 8. E., extended
east, to the proposed sewer in Thirty­
