OREGON CITY, OREGON, FRIDAY, JULY 17,
Yu l Brain..
Steady your nerves, and,
perfect your digestion
by using bread made
from our whole wheat
flour. It is made from
the whole wheat berry
except the out side hull, -or
bran, which is a woody (
substance, irritating and ,
ndigestible. Bread made ,
rom this flour is not so
white as that made from
the pale white roller flour,
but it is far superior for
food as it contains all the '
gluten, germ, and oily
matter of the wheat and
is much sweeter than
graham or any other
bread not sweetened

elswhere for the past weeks, so much
so. that your correspondent's ink dried
We have had three sad funerals re
cently. Two years ago Henry Schuth
married Lena Wolfs, whose parents
live in this community. He was an
honest, honerable tiprinht younn man
and had made a home for his bride ' at
Cleone, where they lived happily anil
content. Three week s ago in falling a
tree he got one leg crushed. After
lingering in extreme agony for ten
ilava and havinir the lee amputated,
death came to the poor fellows releaw
and the sorrowing friends brought nm
remains here for burial, and moved the
stricken wife and infant child home to
her father's house. A curious fatality
seems to have attended his family, as his
brother was killed by a falling tree a
few years ago near the same place.
Commencing Saturday, July nth, special reductions will be
offered throughout our entire stock. We have done an unusa
good business since we opened in Oregon City and are so well
satisfied that we have placed very heavy orders on fall goods.
They will commence arriving in August and we must make
