To pen a picture tlint would do tlio City of ST. JOHNS,
OKKQON, full Justice nnd tlesorlbo Its numerous merits In
a manner commensurate with Iti wonderful ndvnntnges nnd
resources would, Indeed, require the master Imnd of an
artist and poet combined. Nowhere on dod's green foot
stool has nature been bo lavish with her benefloent gifts.
Messed with n climate Hint Is Incomparable In any clime,
It Is a real pleasure just to bo alive In this glorious lo
cality. As n magnificent slto for residences It has no
equal. A scenic beauty Is hem presented that would
make the famed wonders of the Alps palo In comparison.
The snow. crowned mountains In the distance rise In their
grandeur, seemingly to almost commune with the worlds on
high, In their robes of white. Tlio lnndscupo Is plcturcsquo
In the extreme. With the mighty waters of the Columbia
and tho stately Wlllnmctto washing Us feet, the effect Is
simply ravishing from an nrtlst's point of view.

gn-atesl ndvnntnge. llclng Hlttmlc-d upon tho Peninsula ad
Joining the boundary lino of tbn City of Portland, with
deep nnd navlgablo water surrounding It upon three sides,
It Is peculiarly nilnptrd for Importing nnd exporting across
the high sens. Tho harbor leading Into the great City of
Portland laps Its shores, nnd huge oewtn vessels aro con
tinually pnsslng up nnd down Its entire length.
Its shipping facilities can not be excelled, either by water
or by rail, Thren railways cnclrclo the entire lower Pe
ninsula, the Northern I'aolflo lino traverses through tho
cinlur, nnd freight nnd passenger service Is obtained on
tho Portland (leneral Klectrlc Hallway line, which furnishes
a rapid inoilo or transit to nnd from Ht. Johns. As n resi

about one hundred nnd fifty feet, with i gentle Incline lesd
Ing to the water below from the crest of tho plnteait

forded. Already, although yet In Us swaddling clothes, the gifts
of nature have been greatly augmented by the hnnd of mnn.
The Immediate water front Is well taken up with numerous
manufacturing plants, nnd here rimy l found, on Its west
ern shore, saw mills, asbestos plant, stnvo fiwtnry, wood
working establishment, planing mill, ship building plant,
dry dock, foundry, box factory, machine works, flouring
mill, laundry, woolen mills, veneer works, ele. Along Us
rsstein boundary Is locntml the I'ltelilwn Lumber I'mnpnny,
sash nnd door factory nnd sevcrnl other large Industries In

modern saw mill In tlio world, which will help to swell In
a substantial manner the population of this fMVored section,
Today Ht, Johns Is repr.wente.1 In Hrst-eliiss style by many
stores nnd business houses. Hvery want that Its cltUens
may require can be obtalne.1 In this city. In nn educa

nnd commodious structures lake cure of Hluintlon In an ex
cellelit manner. Ten churches are now located here, with
one or two morn In prospect. Taxes are lower tbun In
almost nuy other city In the United Hliiles. The city Is
lighted by both huh nnd electricity.
Many hundsomu brick blocks ii.torn the prlncliml business

so on, till tho list of commissions was

The traveler smiled. "It happened,"
