About 500 Short on Expenses
At the annual meeting of the stock
holders of the Willamette Valley Chau
tauqua Association held last Saturday,
320 out of the 423 shares of the ttock
were represented. The total receipts
were something less than $3,000, leaving
an incurred indebtedness of about $500.
The following oflicers were elected:

meeting was not legal as the required 10
day notice was not given, and besides the
h'urofthe gathering was changed on
the day previous, so that many stock
holders did not really know when to put
in an appearance. An effort was made

J. Voorhees Addresses Molalla
Notwithstanding the busy eeaso-i, Po
mona Grange at Springwater was well
attended. During t fie afternoon session,
Mrs. Howard, Pomona lecturer, arose
and called to the fl( or the two whiti
haired veteran .workers of 'he order,
Chaplain Eaton and State Deputy Dr.
Casto. With a short, touching, eloquent
address idle presented each of tlieni, in
behalf of Clackamas Pomona, with a
locket of solid gold, adapted for a watch
chain ornament, bearing the inscription,
in addition to the name, "(J. P. G. P. of
H." Mr. Zeek, worthy master of Kale
Creek Grange, strenuously urged the
ilronn to bold ihe October meeting ot
imona at Eagle Creek, to which re
quest, notwitbsianding the humorous
effort" of Oswego to capture that nppor-'
tuniiy.for the exercise of hospitality and
fraternity, the Grange by vote assented
Mr. Zeek advanced the proposition that
a two-days' meeting be . held at Kagle
Crpes. As the bretkren there arekind,
and good livers, the suggestion is excel
lent. The hospitality and bonhomie of
the Springwatnr friends captured the
hearts of their visitors, and when, at the
end of the closed meeting, they were
asked to express their appreciation of
the same by a "rising vote" of thanks,
they responded with .a hearty earnest
ness indicating that to them this
as no mere formality but something
full of meaning. The open meet-
ng in the evening was given to a
iterary and mn.-icai entertaiument. The
program was as follows: Instrumental
music, Willie Clark; recitation, Widie
Sellwood; recitation, Loreua Lacy; in
strumental tnusic, Henry Shannon; re

ley; recitation, Walter Pruden ; he re
ceived an encore, to which he respond
ed; quartette, Mtlwaukie Grange; reci
tation, Anna Holm : instrumental music .
The best oratorical effort was by all odds
the recitation by VV. .Fruden, son oi Dr.
Pruden. He has no small measure of
histrionic talent and some day will
mike bis mark. A free dance till mid
night succeeded the entertainment. This
was the young folks' turn; and well did
they make use of it.
On Saturday, Past Master J. Voorhees,
of Woodburn, made an instructive talk
to Molalla Grange. He showed, that the
only manner in which the farmers can
combat the grafters who devour them is
to oigantze. In a year and a,half, 100
mortgages have been foreclwed in Ma
rion county, and more and moie farmeis
will continue to go under. Since the
farm returns only 2 per cent and money
costs 8 per cent, the borrowing' tanner
must go broke. Nearly Beven-eighths of
the taxes are paid by real estate Until
the farmers have learned to unite for
mutual protection against their enemies.

The Smotlierlnir Scene, .
As to stage appointments, there
were no piusii or velvet curtains or
couches draped with satin In early
days. The furniture was as unpreten
tious as the costumes. Indeed on one
occasion when a lady was playing Des-
demoua to her husband's Othello a dis
astrous and at the same time ludicrous
effect, though of course unrehearsed,
had been Imminent through the lack of
even a nail or two to make an old stool
It was the smothering scene, and the
couch was made up of two chairs and a
rickety stool covered, of course, with
tho simplest draperies a red merino
curtain trimmed with yellow worsted
fringe. Imagine a Dcsdcmona endeav
oring to recline gracefully, all the while
feeling portions of her couch sliding
from under her. This Is how the scene
was played out:
