The field meet on Multnomah
field this week by the children of
the Portland schools was something
to delight the heart of the child
lover. They were wonderfully
well trained, and enjoyed the evo
lutions fully as well as did the vis
itors. Then the trolley ride was a
feature the pupils will never forget.
It would be a fine thing if these
field meets could be pulled off more
than once a year.
W. H. Warner, who was work
ing on a house 011 Alberta, met
with a very painful accident Mon
day morning. He was drawing a
nail with his shingling hatchet,
when it slipped off the nail, the
blade catching his left hand be
tween the thumb and fore finger
severing the veins of the hand and
making a deep gash. He came all
the way home aud waited an hour
before he secured the services of a
surgeon. He finally reached Dr.
Vincent's office where he was prop
erly cared for and the doctor says
if uo complications intervene he
will soon be able to resume his oc
cupation. Mr.- Warner's hand
bled very profusely and he was
obliged to put a ligature about his
wrist to stop the blood somewhat,
but this did not keep it from bleed
ing considerably all the time.

Leaving Boston we sailed around

of Nippon, where in the home of

Japanese refreshments by tiic pretty

From there we sailed for Amster

the prettiest little Dutch girl in the

Mr. Hditor: A lady friend wants

Now, Mr. Kditor, you know what
I mean to say, and if you help me
