To sometlmo mnrry Christmastime"

Tho knot was tied, twlxt man nnd

With Bunshlno on tho snow.
They have ono dnughtor Margaret,
Who married Thomns Skolls:
Klvo children bnvo been born to them
Since rnng their wedding bells.
So Magglo has hor hands quite full,
Uut she don't mind tho bother.
Of bringing up tho children (tvu

I he latest addition to Port
lands cmumnent for enrinu for
any kind of ocean commerce is
the box car unloader installed
by the commission of public
(iocks on pier i oi (lie munlci
pal terminal No. 1. The device,
which was Installed hv the 01
luiiiwa Box Car Unloatler com
pany of New York, was tried
out lor the first time under ac
Imi! working conditions, and
emptied a car full of phosphate
rock in five movements. The
unloading machinery is calcu
lated to save time and labor
costs by tloing away with the
blind shoveling of such com
modities as phosphate rock, ni
Irales, coal, ores and sulphur.
When a car loaded willi such
material is "snolled" at the
bunkers, this machinerv seizes
it and rocks it about until Hie

been emptied into a hoppe

cilities at terminal No. '1, of
which the car unloader is a
part, were built by the dock
commission in anticipation of
a heavy movement through
Portland of phosphate rock
from Idaho to Japan. This
movement has been postponed
by the straitened linancial sit
tuition in Japan, but is expected
to be resumed on a large scale
within a Tew months. Mean
while the bunkers will be util
ized for handling hulk sulphur,
which is coming lo Portland by
the shipload from the Gulf of

bulk cargoes of simitar nature.

The Osknloosa Independent
reported the death of a former
citizen, whereupon the dead
man wrote and said: 1 went
home and told my wife I was
dead and produced a copy of
your paper lo prove it. While
she is a good woman and all
that, she thinks your paper lied,
nnd she made me carry a lot of
