FRIDAY, JANUARY 1907.
St. Johns will have n popitlation
of 7,000 by Jan. t 1908.
Start the new year by boosting
for St. Johns.
As regards Hood River apples:
Kvery knock acts as a boost.
Kx-Statc Printer Frank C. linker
died at Portland Wednesday.
This year will be the greatest
in the history of the ienlnsiila.
Imitate the Chinese and start the
new year with all your debts paid.
The next state fair will be held
during the week beginning Sept. 16.
St. Johns, during the coining year,
will bo one if the p.ty-as-you-go
cities. And every'j body will feel
better for it.
Tim law makers soon to emigre
crate at Salem should call to mind

Tim tax levy in bt. Johns seems
to be bothering outsiders consider
ably. Especially those who have
real estate to sell outside the city
limits. St. Johns is like the young
couple who have begun housekeep
ingit has everything to buy.
Never mind worrying, gentlemen.
Just watch the smoke of St. Johns.
A year ago nine-tenths of us were
afraid to buy real estate in St. Johns.
When a bargain was oirered we laid
back in the breeching and imagined
some one was trying to rob us.
We thought the price of proerty
too high, just as we do today. It
was not worth the money, many of
us said to ourselves, and we did not
buy. Hut can you get the same
projierty today at the figures it was
offered to you a year ago? Not by
a long shot I The price is higher.
A $200 lot of n year ago is worth
from 300 to .ioo today. Pretty
good interest on the money, isn't it?
It would have paid to have hiret
money ami bought this real estate
year ago. lint a lot ol us were
afraid. It would be safer to kee
our money In our tickets, w
thought. And just as good oppor
(unities are here today as there
were a year neo. Are we going to
continue to side step these oppor
(unities? Ask yourself whoeve

It's Fuel that's Expensive Not the Stove
A Cheap, putty-jointed stove will waste more than its Original
Cost in Fuel every winter.
As you know, all fuel, soft coal, hard coal, lignite, wood and cobs contains n large amount
of gas fully one-half the carbon available for heat in soft coal is gas the entire gas supply used
for fuel and illumination in many cities nnd towns being made from common soft coal. The ordi
nary stove in burning soft coal allows this gas-half of the fuel to pass up the chimney ttnburncd,
thus wasting it ns n heat producer.
Cole's Original Hot Blast Stove, by means of the patented Hot Blast draft nnd other
patented features, making air-tight joints without the use of stove putty, distills this gas from the
upper surface of the coal, utilizing it as a heat producer aloiuj with the fixed carbon or coke in the
coal, thus burning all the coal. Cole's Original Alr-Tlgbt wood Stove on account of the patented
construction without the use ot stove putty noius oacic me gases in wooa
nnd lighter fuel until burned. This is why
