Tank Blows Up
Last Sunday morning the soda
fountain tank at Beauchamp’s
Drug store blew up but did no
serious damage. The gauge that
registers the pressure failed to
work and Harvey had no way of
telling the amount of pressure so
thought he would give it a little
more and in so doing overloaded
it causing the explosion blowing
out the whole side of the tank.
The report from the explosion
sounded like the heavy artillery
from some of the belligerent na
tions now at war had been turned
loose, and Harv ey has been going
around on one foot since as the
force of the explosion blew him
about ten -feet and hurt his left
limb so as to impair the proper
use of same.
Large Crowd at
One of the largest crowds
ever seen s t an opening r ’e of
any kind gathered in Stayton
last Friday morning to get some
of the bargains being given in
the opening sale of the M< rket-

time for the store to open the
street was crowded and the mo
ment the doors swung open the
crowd rushed in and fairly
swamped the force notwith
standing the fact that there was
a large force of clerks to wait
on the people.
One unique feature of the
sale and one that was comment
ed on by a large number of peo
ple was the fact that all the
change handed out that day was
of the 1917 coinage. Many per
