by the Flock
Mrs. J. K. Macpherson. an in­
terested friend of the Juniper
Reading Circle, entertained the
club on January 25th at her pleas­
ant home on 7th street. Twenty-
five ladies were present and five
new mem tiers were admitted.
The afternoon’s program opened
with an instrumental solo. “Rain­
drops,’’ by Mrs. Macpherson.
Mrs. I. L. Osborne had the first
paper of the afternoon, and in a
very pleasing manner completed
the review of “Alice of Old Vin­
cennes”. Mrs. Sherwood read a
very interesting and comprehen­
sive paper on “The Rose of Old
S t Louis”, written by Miss
Laura Baker of the Fortnightly
Club of Pueblo, Colo. Mrs. Mac­
pherson next entertained her
ests with Rubenstein’s “Spring
ng”. “The Lousiana Pur­
chase” was Mrs. Tinsley’s sub­
ject, and in a few well chosen
words she told her listeners how
the United States acquired this
vast territory.

gentlemen are well pleased with
the future outlook of the city,

and will be an addititn to the
business life of Redmond.
A number of people in this sec­
tion are becoming interested in
poultry raising, and as the prices
for eggs and chickens are always
high here, there seems to be no
reason why poultry raising should
not pay. The following account
of what has been done on a ranch
in Walla Waila will be an object
lesson to the people here who are
interested in the poultry business:

Found Many Changes
in His Old Home
G. W. Davies returned last
week from a visit to his old home
to visit his parents at Davenport
Wn. He had not t>een there for
22 years and said he hardly knew
the place. Mr.. Davies’ father
has aged greatly during that
time, and is now in feeble health.
Mr. Davies renewed old acquaint-
enceships and told what a won­
derful country this section of Cen­
tral Oregon was, and put in a
good long boost for Redmond and
the Redmond District
Chad Irvin Buys
Furniture Store
Last week Chad H. Irvin of
this city, bought the furniture
j stock of J. W. Woodruff on
north 6th street. Mr. Irvin stat­
ed to The Spokesman that he in­
tended to add much to his al­
ready complete stock, and would
have the largest line of furniture
i in Central Oregon. He said he
was out for business in the fur­
niture line and proposed to have
such a complete stock and such
satisfactory prices that people
would come many miles to Red­
mond to buy anything they might
want in the furniture line. Mr.
Irvin is a young man of push
and energy, and The Spokesman
that he will make things
C redicts
urn in the furniture business in
this part of the county.
If you are interested in Valen­
tines this year, we would like to
have you come in and see the
elegant stock we have in this
line. We have all kinds and we
are sure we can please you.
Better come before the assort­
ments are broken too much.
