The West Coast Laundry Js now
ocated in its new home near the

The laundry is now one of the best

sides increased floor space the new
machinery installed will enable Mr.
Johnsou to turn out more and bet
ter work than ever. The reputa
tion of the West Coast Laundry is
second to none ou the coast and the
increased facilities will serve to add
to its fame.
The differences of opinion that
prevented the Philadelphia street
improvements last tall nave been
adjusted, and we understand as
soon as favorable weather comes
the widest street in St. Johns will
be graded and sidewalked from the
top of the hill to the banks of the
Willamette. It is to be hoped the
property owners will insist on a
grade that will permit of teams as
cending and descending the hill in
perfect safety. The lesson learned
in the Burlington street grade should
be put to practical use by the Phila
delphia street people. Unless we
are awfully mistaken it will be.

The drug store had several loaf

the old lady, who was quite deaf.
Seventy cents!" roared the drug
mixer. "Seven cents! All right,
here is your money," and dropping
nickle and two pennies ou the
counter she sailed majestically out
before the astonished pharmacist
had time to recover his breath.

the word "dry" is used lure is be
cause it commands a belter price.

The following front the Koseburg
Review is the truth plainly told,
Nail it to the wall and read it once
a week: It is little use for the local
editor to waste his lungs and sprain
his spine in trying to Ikjoiii a town
when the cifizens all stand around
with their hands in their pockets
and indifferently wait for something
to turn up, If the capitalists or
business men do not (tut their
shoulders to the wheel and do 11
little boosting, it is useless for the
editor to try and boom things, He
can write "boom" urticles till he
gets bald headed, but if the citieus
themselves do not take hold and
push, the town will forever Mick in
the mud. Of what use is it for the
local pajier to suggest improve
ments and new enterprises if the
suggestions are not acted upon?
One man cannot boom a town. It
requires the concerted action of the
cttuetis. When one man shoulders
town and attempts to carry it
there always a lot of cranky kickers
ready to jump on top of the load.
Unity ol action is what counts.
Harvey Briggs, the former well
known clerk at the Peninsula Bank,
but now in the lumber business at
Bridal Veil, Ore,, spent New Years
day in the city. "You St Johnites
think you have too much rain,'
said Harvey, "but you ought to see
the water come down at Bridal eil.
It is awful. Umbrellas are of no
use. We all wear oil skin coats and
overalls, and even they do not last
over a couple of weeks localise the
rain drops bore them full of holes.
And when you want to know how
hard the wind blows come and see
me. Our office dog only wears hair
under his collar. His body is as
bald as Rockefeller's bead. All the

because the wind cuts them off,
