Miss Flossie Gatchcl, of Lebanon,
Oregon, aud has moved her store

Stucker has been conducting her

years and has made hundreds of
friends by her kitidly, gentle ways,
her bright, cheering disposition and
consistent, faithful Christian life.
Among the vouimer members of
society she is especially a favorite,
entering whole hcartedly into their
work and play as one of them. The
church here will lose one of its
most faithful members, society one
its most delightful entertainers and
the business world of St. Johns one

Maple street sewer. The ordinance

of Maple street for nil casement
over the Weyerhaeuser laud for tin
laying of the sewer is up to him foi
his .signature or veto. If he vctoi
it, prospects for the hard surfacing
of Jersey street go glimmering foi
this year. A blind sewer might be
built 011 Jersey street, but it would
take valuable lime to go over nil

do not believe property owuer.s

would it profit the city if the Wey
erhauuser I.und Co. had offered nu
easement for sewer purposes over
n strip of laud 50 or too feet wide
instead of 6 feet ? A right of way
for sewer is all we want, nud six
feet is plenty at this time. If more

demned. What the people want is

The Owls Entertain
By wny of criticism it might be
stated that the Oregotiiau, iu its
splendid special edition last Satur
day, failed to give St. Johns its full
meed of publicity. It did attest,
however, that St. Johns possesses
a saw mill and stove works. A
few more of our leading industries
might have been mentioned without
any harm resulting. But for the
good it will accomplish for the
state at large it will be foriiiven for
the discrepancy this time.
Hon. K. C, Couch, our well
kuowu aud enterprising townsman,
is deserviug of a large slice of cred
it for his effective work iu gettinir
the free ferry bill through the house
and senate. The insight he gained
by being n member of the last leg
islature served him iu good stead,
and he left nothing done to have
the bill passed. It would be im
possible to pick a man iu St. Johns
so well qualified to cuact such a
mission as Mr. Couch, aud his
splendid efforts are fully appreciat
ed by the, general publlic.

That Oregqu will double its pres'

years ol her history is the
prediction of Dr. Joseph Shafer,

draws interesting parallels between
tlie agricultural states of the Mid
tile West and Oregon, which he
says is now facing a period similar
to that marking the periods of
heaviest settlement iu the Missis

cheap agricultural lauds to be had

The housewife, tired of the beast

that were iu her mind when her
husband came from his toil at night;
She said the world didn't treat her
right. "I'm always 'doing the

washing tltc same old frocks, aud
darning the holes in the same old
socks. I'm sick aud tired of this
wretched life! There is no joy for
the poor man's wife." The wife
of the rich man sighed and said.
