Gordon Bragg, an old Hood Riv
crlte, now in the employ of Gadsby
& Co., Portland, was in the city
Tuesday and called for a few mo
mcuts to say hello. Gordon is al
right, is a good employe and wil
vote for Tom Word which shows
that his heart is in the right place.
George L. Per Hue returned Mon
day from an extended visit at Kcl

the erection of a three story brick.
It is about time that big brick thut
so much bus been said alxut was
being put up here. Tuesday George

The Rcbckah's are going in a

Mr. Drinker of the First Nation
al bank has something that is
cood for the sore eves. It is a
bunch of crisp new bills of St.

nominations. and io bills.

K. C. Mouuich returned from his
farm near Scio where he has been
spraying his trees. He reports the
prospects good for a bumper crop
of fruit this, year. Thiuks he will
make as much or more than the
entire place cost him. E. C. h a
uood fellow and we hone he has
struck a bonanza, and if he will
continue to make St. Johns his
home we hope he will double his
money every year.
Mr. Willis, who recently lived
on North Jersey street, moved
Tuesday to Whitwood Court where
he will build a house at once.
There is a keen interest being ere
ated in the fine, new residence dis
trict opposite St. John and the
fact that the United Railways are
to build a line at once along the
foot of the tract will make the
property values go up la a hurry.
It would be a good plan to get
hold of something there before the
rise. We did.
The trustees of the M. E. church
have held a meeting at which they
decided to sell at least two of the
lots of their nronertv where the
Church Is located la order to, liquid
. . . .
ate their indebtedness on the prop-
erty. This will give them enough
room for their church building and
the parsonage. We think this is a
very wise move. Paying rent and
interest are two things which look
"lots" to us like pouring sand down
a rat Hole and the cmircb or indl
vidual who is able to cut out either
or both has reached a happy stage
in taetr existence.
