Mrs. O. S. Haynes died very
suddenly at her home on North

o'clock Friday afternoon. She
had been sitting in an invalid

By David Powell.
A quite novel, though none
the less effective scheme to en
courage home buying was in
augurated and carded to a suc
cessful issue by tho women of
B .a city of 15,000 inhab
itants located within easy trolley
rido of Cleveland, Ohio.
A Civic Beauty League hud
been organized by tho leading
women of tho city, and to carry
out its purposes they appealed
to the business men of the town
for financial aid, never doubting
that for so worthy a cause there
would bo any reluctance on the
part ot the merchants to sub
scribe. As it so happened, tho two or
three women most active in
promoting the Leaguo wore very
(much given to running into
I Cleveland to buy n Inrge share
of their clothing, hats, house
furnishings, etc., and when tho
1 mnttcr came up before tho Busi
ness Men's Association for en
dorsement, several of tho mcr
1 chants present were of tho
opinion that this would be anno'
ujiiiui iiuiiLjr w kivu iiiuuu wumuii
a well moritcd robuko. After
some discussion it was decided
to appoint a committee to meet
with tho ladies and explain to
them that owing to poor busi
ness conditions caused by so
much money being spent out of
town it would be impossible for
the merchants to help them at
that time. Though tho ensuing
conference between tho commit
tee and the 1 adi oh was held many
years ago, tho members of that
committee still retain very vivid
memories of the- occasion. After
some two hours discussion,- oh
tho part of tho women, tho com
mitteo men retired with as much
grace as thoy could, but later
developments proved that their
martyrdom was not in vain.
Being whole soulcd, sensible
American women, they readily
saw the forco of the arguments
prcsontcd by the business men,
with tho result that it was but a
few days until thoir Beauty
Leaguo was converted into a
"Buy nt Homo" Club, composed
only 01 women anu work ng in
dependently of tho merchants,
though, of courso, tho money
necessary to conduct thoir cam
paign was solicited, and, need
less to say, willingly subscribed
from tho business interests of
tho city.
Through tho medium of the
local newspapers tho women con
ducted a prizo contest for tho
best ten reasons why peoplo
should buy from home mer
chants, and was open only to
contestants who were not con
nected in any way with local
enterprises. As it was desired
to cieato as much Interest as
possiblo in tho contest, tho prizes
offered were very substantial
and so arranged that almost
every ono sending in an article
could feel almost sure of win
ning something.
The results were more than
satisfactory. Hardly a block in
tho city but contained one or
more of tho prize winners. The
following article won the grand
prize of $250. and aftor being
prepared In pamphlet form in
the most attractive stylo print
ers' art could devise, was placed
in the hands of every resident
of the city:
"We should patronize our
home merchants because it is
patriotic. That which nromnts
a man to don his armour, and if
need be to give his life in de
fense of his country, is patriot
ism. Patriotism never counts
the cost. It prompts the loyal
citizen to lend his utmost action
to the unbuilding of his country.
his state and his city. No great
er evidence of true patriotism
can m displayed than the ex

surprise comes in, for instead of
the box playing a part in Mrs.

bor Hathaway thought, it con
tained a most exquisitely beau
tiful cut glass Vase. And the
funny part of it was, the Sister
had been searching all Portland
for just such a vase, and to

easier ho never could stand it.
Tho work of clearing tho right

ly and grading has been started
on somo of the contracts. There
aro about four or fivo hundred
men at work on tho big improvc

it will bo ono of the finest drives
that over happened. The Ger
mnntown Road is a pretty drivo
with all its serpontino curves
but it will not bo in it for a
minuto with tho Hillside drivo
when completed because of the
wider rango of vision of the lat
ter and tho higher altitude of a
greater part of it. This cooler
weather certain y mnkes t more
comfortable for tho laborers on
this contract.
There is ono thing more that
is needful and then tho ferry
would be perfect and that is to
give longer hours service in the
evening. As it is there aro
vory many who wish to cross be
tween 7:30 and 10 o'clock who.
must either go around by Port
land or take a small boat which
to say the least is not safe on tho
river after dark. It would bo
one of the most highly appre
ciated things of tho service if it
could bo extended to even 9 or
9:30 p. m instead of 7:30.
Charley Tooley, who works at
