Where Will We Spend Our Sum
This is the time of year to think about
it, but before you decide, write for an
elaborate, illustrated pamphlet showing
numerous photo engraved views of the
many attractions at the seashore and en
route, and advantages of the Columbia
river beaches as reached by the Astoria
and Columbia River Railroad. Three
hours and thirty minutes from Union
Depot, Portland, to your beach hotel, in
a magnificent parlor car without change
or transfer is a convenience and luxury
few resorts can offer. Such is the initial
attraction of this favorite resort.

A startling incident, of which Mr.
John Oliver, of Philadelphia, was the
eubject, is narrated by him as follows:
"I was in a most dreadful condition.
My skin was almost yellow, eyes sunken,
tongue quoted, pain continually in back
and sides, no appetite gradually grow
ing weaker day by day. Three physi
cians had given me up. Fortunately a
friend advised tryiug Electric Bitters,
and to my great joy and surprise, the
first bottle made a decided improve
ment. I continued their use for three
weeks, and am now a well man. I know
they saved my life and robbed the grave
of another victim." No one should fail
to try them. Only 50cts, guaranteed, at
George A. Harding's drug store.

J. H. Howard, August Asmus and C.
R. Woodward attended the grand coun
cil of the Improved Order of Redmen at
Pendleton last week. Mr. Howard has
the honor of having been selected grand
sachem ot the order in Oregon. The
amendment introduced for the reduc
tion of the admission fee, was lost by a
large majority. The representation
from the tribes was reduced to one for
the charter and one for each 50, or frac
tion thereof, over 40. Oregon City now
has two other head grand officers of fra
ternal organizations. T. F. Ryan in the
Eastern Star, and F. T. Rogers in the
Foresters, while O. H. Dye is in a fair
way to eo through all the chairs in the
A. O. U. W. grand lodge.
Many inquiries are being received
from the East at the local land office,
asking for descriptions of vacant govern
ment land. These letters are being re
ceived daily, usually with a stamp for
reply. Some peculiar questions are
asked. A postal card was received
Monday, and the enquirer wanted to
know how much government land would
be worth after it was put into cultiva
tion, etc.; whether the country was set
tled up with foreigners or Americans.
He did not inquire anything about In
dians, however. Some Easterners im
agine that the vacant government lands
of Oregon are a vast area of prairies in
a wild and uncivilized country, instead
of the most valuable timber land in the
world, convenient to all the advantages
The annual meeting of stockholders
of the Willamette Valley Chautauqua
Association was held Saturday after
noon. The report of Secretary J. W.

mer indebtedness. The following offi
cers were elected: President, W. C.
Hawley, of Salem ; vice-president, C. H.
Dye j secretary, J.W.Gray; treasurer,
T. F. Ryan ; the other members of the
board of directors, J. T. Apperson,
George A. Harding, E. E. Charman, Dr,
W. E. Carll, H. E. Cross. The report
of the treasurer showed that the total
receipts from licenses and gate admis
sions was $3366 28, and the total expen
se to date was $3004 98, leaving a bal
ance of $362, o net profit of about $300.
During the last afternoon the baseball
cup waB awarded to the Ohemawas, and
medals were presented to the winners
in the bicycle races. One of the num
bers on the musical program in the
evening, was a solo by Mrs. Charles W.
Pope, entitled -'Amid the Flowers I
Wander," and for an encore, "'Cupid
and I," from the Serenade.
