Steady your nerves, and

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
indigestible. Bread made
from 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

E. E. WILLIAMS,
CANBY CAMP MEETING.
The attendance at the Methodist camp
meeting here has been large, notwith
standing the heat. A small admission
fee has been charged at the gate, and
freely paid, to meet tlie expenses of fit
ting up the grounds. This method was
adopted instead of the old one of taking
up a collection. The receipts have been
greater than at any meeting for years
past, and the amonnt has been equally
distributed among saints and sinners.
About a dozen preachers and several
layman and woman, who are good lead
ers, have been present to help in three
or four meetings each day. The great
tabernacle has been well whitewashed,
giving it a fine, clean appearance, as seen
through the green shade trees. dif
ficult problem, touching an abundance
of water to meet the demand of the
crowds, has been successful! solved. A
large new spring has been opened, and
a pump worked by a water wheel run
from the overflow, sends the water into
a tank on the ground, convenient for all.
Commencing Saturday, July nth, special reductions will be
offered throughout our entire stock. We have done an unusal
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
room for them. The first week of this sale we shall devote to
odd lots and broken lines. Now the chances are among these
lines and you will find just what you need. If you do you can
make a half do a dollar's duty.

The persons who read the news from

the meaning of Stringtown. Stringtown

Prof. Griffith, the phrenologist, gave
a series of lectures Wednesday, Thurs
day and Friday evenings of last week.
His lectures were very interesting but
were poorly attended. He stated tha'
the people were only half civilized,
which, I think applies to Canemah in
every respect, although he probably
meant people outside of Canemah.
The fruit as well as potatoes is a fail
ure in this part of the country. The
only pure crop that the farmers of String
town see ahead is the tax levy of '97.
The board of school directors have en
gaged Mr. Hackett of Park Place and
Miss Chase of Oregon City as teachers
