An Interesting Letter
The following is a letter writ
ten by a gentlemen whom uev.
Jnmes Murphey formed the ac
quaintance of during a trip down
tne Columbia. It is well written
and of interest to all:
Rev. James Murphy, St. Johns,
Dear Sir: We formed a slight
acquaintance on our trip down
the Columbia on the Steamer
Dallas City about Oct. 10, and
as you requested me lo let you
know how I enjoyed my trip, I
will toll you a little. I left hero
on the eve of Aug. 8th nnd re
turned morning of Nov. 5th in
time to vote with tho exception
of six weeks which I spent in
and around N. Yakima I was
constantly traveling and it seem
ed as though I could not see
enough of that beautiful country.
And I have spent my ovenings
since my return in reading liter
ature which I got from tho differ
ent Commercial Clubs and I find
out I have missed a groat deal
more than I saw. To say that I
enjoyed myself is butn feeble
way of expressing myself. Ev
ery movement from tho morning
of Aug. 9 when I woke up in
Wis. on my way west was full of
interest nnd pleasure and not
one solitary thing happened to
mar tho pleasure and I liad more
real enjoyment in thoso thVoo
months than I have had in the
last twelve years. I am charm
ed with that Western country
nnd the people and I would like
to make my homo West of tho
Cascades. My return trip was
by Via C. P. ll, Vancouver B. C.
Wpg. St. Paul and from Vancou
ver to Wpg. I traveled by day
only nnd rode in the Observation
Car so that I saw as much of
that country as a person could
by passing through on tho rail
way, and all over that Western
Country everybody doing some
thing to mnko tho world bigger
and better and that is when life
is worth living. And to think I
turned thnt whole Western
Country down twenty-six years
ago. How short sighted some
people nrc. I told you of a littlo
ditty I came across in Hood
River. I encloso it It expresses
my sentiments exactly:
Out where the handclasp's a lit
Out whero n smile dwells n lit
Thot's whero the west begins.
Out whero tho sun is a little
When tho snows that fall are a
Where tho bonds of homo nro a
weo bit tighter;
That's whero tho west begins.
Out where the skies aro a littlo
Out whero friendship's a little
That's whero tho west begins.
Out whero a fresher brcezo is
Where there's laughter in each
Whero there's more of reaping
and less of sowing;
That's where tho west begins.
Out where the world is in tho
Where fewer hearts with despair
Thnt.'s whero the west Leering.
Where there's more of singing
and less ot signing;
Whero there's lots of selling and
lots of buying;
Whero a riian makes friends
without half trying;
That's where the west begins.
With kindest regards3and best
wishes for you and yours,
John W. Burgess.
Portland people learned a lot
from the exhibit from many
parts of the Pacific Northwest
at the recent land show held
there. Agricultural possibilities
were shown in a striking way
and the wealth of the soil mado
a strong impression. The dairy
show, too, opened the eyes of
the city people as were ever as
sembled in the whole United
States. Such exhibitions aro
valuable. They show what people
are doing in the exploitation of
the State's greatest resources,
and attract many to these lines
Dry farm experts had an inn
ing at the recent Land Show.
Tillman Reuter, of Madras, who
carries off the lion's share of
prizes at the national dry-farming
congresses every year regu

and other sections of the state
where dry-farming is practiced
had excellent showings.

Worn by- Stylish Women
When tho first pannier dress
was seen nnd as it happened,
worn by tho leader of style in
Paris, a great uproar was created
in the world of fashion. And up
to date, there is still considerable
controversy pro and con. But,
notwithstanding some very loud
protests from tho close adherents
of the narrow silhouette, the
pannier is used extensively, and
in many cases, very effectively.
If there were any objections,
it was simply duo to the fear
that panniers or drapery of any
character would necessarily add
to tho width of the skirt, ttnd
that, as already mentioned, was
what fashion's followers Were
decidedly unwilling to do. The
narrow skirt has still the lion's
share of the favor.
But a very definite change of
sentiment for tho pannier and
other forms of drapery cafne,
when it was so very ably demon
strated, by tho best designers,
that there could bo all the full
ness added to tho skirt without
increasing tho width one halr'B
The very attractive panhier
skirt illustrated here, is an ex
cellent example of the above
statement, as the width of this
skirt, at tho lower edge, when
the pleats are laid in, is only
about one and jino quarter yards
in size 21. Isn't it remarkable?
