SAYS KLAMATH FALLS
WAS GARDEN OF EDEN
Dr. Chas. Hallock of Harvard claims
that Klamath Falls, Oregon, is the site
of the ancient Garden of Eden. The
doctor bases his belief on the many
prehistoric implements found there.
Evidently the good doctor never was
in Klamath Falls in her palmy days,
when Alkali Ike used to shoot up the
town on his occasional visits; however,
the atory may be true and if so will be
visited by many tourists in the near
future to see the birth place of our
Frank White of the Chamber of Com
merce of Klamath Tails was in Port
land the other day ar.d while there took
the opportunity to buy a Bible, as it
seems they are a scarce article in the
Falls at present. Mr. White stated
that he was commissioned by several
prominent people of his home town to
secure copies of the Old Testament for
them, so that they could see for them
selves just how much truth there was
in Doctor Hallock’s theory.

Hooson to the city was acceptel and

The main business of the session was
taken up, namely, the making of a
contract with a City Engineer to plan

duced and passed giving the mayor and
recorder tile authority to make such a
contract, and before this issue is n di

Mr. Morns was at the special .-,a.>ion
and gave a clear and concise a; c-)unt
of the manner in which several il.ffer-

his work would be done in plenty of
time to have all ready for the pa\ ing

What One Man Told Us:
“ Last January I started the new year right by opening
a cheeking account with your bank, and paid all bills in this
way. My check stubs soon showed me the leaks in my poc-
ketbook. Several times, I avoided paying bills twice, for
cancelled checks are legal receipts. My money was right at
my finger tips whenever I wanted it, but it was absolutely
safe where no one could steal it. It p u t system into my
spending and increased my credit.”
Why don’t YOU start a cheeking account? You don’t
need much to start with— just bank your pay, and pay all
bills by checks. You’ll soon have a surplus.
