The taxes, interest on mortgage
and monthly payment on house
wore now thrco times the amount
of my earnings. However, by
dispensing with tho service of a
doctor, we lost our father and
mother-in-law, which so reduced
our expenses that we wcro able
to pay for the parlor lloor and
and windows. In ten years sev
en of our nine children died, pos
sibly owing to our diet of excel
sior and prunes. I only mention
these little things to show wc

years and was then able to

Will Hold Sweet Pea Show
St. Johns will have a Sweet
Pea show this year. The date has
has not been definitely set but
will be announced later. The
show is being inaugurated and
staged by C. 0. Currin, the well
known pharmacist. About elev-1
en years ago Mr. Currin eon- j
ecived tho idea of holding a
sweet pea show ii bt ..Johns, and
forthwith began to incite inter
one. For the two succeeding
years Mr. Currin fathered tho
show, the third show being held
at the St. Johns dock and the il-
one at the skating rink.
Hoth were very successful and
considerable interest was taken
in them. It is nlon.siiiir to nolo
that Mr. Currin has again taken
I tip the idea, and it is to be hoped
J that it will bo continued every
year hereafter. It is doubtful if
there is any place on God's green
. footstool that sweet peas bios-
peas, as there is no prettier or
moro delicately scented flower.
Mr. Currin has generously offer
ed to furnish free seed and will
give worth while prizes for the
best exhibits. Moro definite de
tails of tho show will appear at
a later date. In the meantime
get ready your sweet pea beds.
If you appreciate a simple gos
pel service and an opportunity
to worship attend the services at
tho Christian church. Reported.
I love my country's rocks and
rills and feign would move from
oil' her hills the billboard ads for
liver pills. I love to gaze on
some old barn that stands by
wood or rock or tarn. 1 love its
curves and graceful lines, its
weathered boards from oaks and
pines. 1 love its silo, cribs and
mows, its Plymouth Rocks and
brindle cows; my farm born
heart with pleasure swells when
I inhale its rich, ripe smells. Hut
oil I hate to see its back, exposed
to road or railway track, in glar
ing paint give doubtful dope on
some one's double action soap,
or urge relief from human ills by
chewing sixteen horsepower pills
Around yon curve the engine
scoots, and wayworn travelers
press their snoots against the
dusty window panes, while tired
eyes and weary brains drink in
the peace of hills and plains.
Forgetting cares and lack of
cash, they gaze on fields of suc
cotash. Green growing groves
.where dryads roost anil babbling
brjioks their spirits boost. To
keep these haunts for nymphs
and Pan, the bilious bill board
let us ban. Bob Adams.

going without everything we

from the United States and the
state of Oregon to invite the na

Exposition at Portland. 1 E
Reach, another member of the
Hoard, said tho other day that he
thought within the next two or
three weeks there would be in

tho basis of tins statewide senti

worked out, a site selected and
ground broken before many
mouths have passed by.
Good morning, have you paid
for your job work or advertis-
ingt Now, you understand, we
don't need the money, we have
millions to got; but it is really an
imposition on our part to let pco

around when we aro so strong
and healthy and abundantly able
to carry tho burden ourselves.
For tills reason wo ask every one
who iins our money in his posses
My mother-in law, who lived
with us, decided to save enough
out of my salary to build us-n
home. When tho collar was fin
ished I became ill and lost my po
sition and had to mortgage the
cellar to mako my first payment.
Although wo went without food
