SEVERAL SEASONS WHY
The Oregon Boys. Did Not Want
To Come To Fortland Direct
The following extract from a letter
written by one of the Oregon City boys
gives some of the leiieons why the Ore
gon boys did not want to come here
"The people of Oregon seem to be
quite sore at us. The leason none of ns
can comprehend. By coming to San
Francisco it puts $32 in our pockets and
gives us a good chance to see 'Frisco.
The i eop'e don'i seem to stop and think
vuiai we wo ui nave lost liy coming to
Portland direct. After we are mustered
out it may take us quite a time to get a
position and every extra penny we can
scrape up will no doubt come in handy
We have been away fifteen months and
we cannot understand why at mall mat
ter of three weeks would make any dif
ference. If it were not for our parents,
neniis and tho good people of Oregon
who have been so kind to us, we would
never think of coming back as a regi
mom,, inn suue 01 uregon we owe
nothing, and it, us, a whole lot. We
were in 33 battles and skirmishes and
have made a recoid for our state which
it should feel proud of. After our great
battle of Malabon, in which we lost 59
wounded and 8 killed, after havingtaken
the hardest position in the fight, that
night, tired, hungry and sleepy, we
camped with the Kansas, Minnesota and-
Monlana boys, all of whom received
congratulations from their state and
governor, but the poor Oregon boys got
not a single word. This made the boys
quite sore auainst the state. This is just
one instance in which we have been
slighted. Remember we endured the
same thing 32 times more. Later we
received the Oregonian datjd . February
something, in which dear old Harvy
said; "The Oregon, now since the
fighting has started, want to come home
War was all right to them before they
smelled powder, but as soon as the in
surrection starts word cornea to us to
have them sent home." At the time
we were doing just as all good soldiers
do, "OBEYING ORDERS" and policing
the old city, which was twice as danger
ous as the field work, if he considers
danger; position necessary to make
When we left home we were given the
old state malitu clothing for which the
gallant state of Oregon charged us full
price, $18 02, afler they had been worn
8 years. Oilier states gave the clothing
to their boys. Oregon would not even
allow each soldier the measley sum of
$2 dollars per month to each man that
left home and friends, to die if neces
sary, for his state and flag.
The State of Minesota gives each sol
dier on muster out, $200; Pennsylvan ia,
$500, and to on with every elate which
furnished soldiers for the Philippines.
As I said before, if it were not for our
friends and folks, Oregon would never
see us enter her fair state as a regiment.
These are a few reasons why the Oregon
regiment do not care to come to Oregon.

A man who has once used Masury's Paint and had
it put on right will seldom have anything else. He well
knows that the few cents on a gallon he might save on
white lead and oil or a cheap mixed paint is more than
offset by the extra covering quantities of Masury's. Besides
thislcan safely guarantee you two or three years longerwear
than you can get out of the best white lead and oil. One
oftens looses sight of the fact that it costs no more to put
on a paint to last five or six years that it does one to last
only three or four. 1
Not long ago I saw in a paint advertisement where
the writer offered $10.00 reward to anyone who would find
a house painted with lead and oil for two years where the
paint would not rub off on the hand. This seems like a
strong statement but I believe it is true and as is said of
this advertisement "you've got to accept this statement' '
or bring on your house." A safe plan to go on is that a
cheap paint is bound to be a dear one in the long run.
I have a pretty complete paint store and can give you
prices and quality that I know will satisfiy you.
