BEY A FISH
The Getter ul Activity in, Build
ing in Oregon City.
It is a fact worthy of special mention
that Oregon City is steadily improving
and becoming more metropolitan all the
This movement in the improvement!
line is perhapb mo-it manifest in the i
way of the erection of new buildinus. I
TliiB 9 aor, mo e than ever n the rast,
has the building enterprise received uew
impetus The wav to realize this fact!
is to io k down upon the city fiom so e
high promontory on the little cottage
and larger structures which arecrod-i
ing to the front hand. i
One buildinz now iu the prccesB of ;
construction, and one which will be a
credit to 'lie city, is the handsome new '
store building to be Solomon
Garde. 'I his is to be a brick structure j
of two Btoiies with a well cemented base- j
ment. On the ground floor will be three
storerooms fit ted up with every modern
improvement with projecting w indows i
such as afford the goods an excellent,
opportunity for 'liaplay. The upper
floor will lie divided into well-finished
office ro, mi. I
Nor is this all that ran be said of this
building akening, for the Willamette
Pulp & Paper Co. are now engaged in
erectinganew pulp mill on the island
close to the milla on the West Side. !
For quite a while the company has been
usiim the old electric light plant at the
basin for the purpose of the manufacture
of ground pulp, but this structure has
long since served ont its period of UBe- ,
fulness. Time and hard ussge have got-
ten in their telling work on this old ;
remnant of former use and activity, and
it is to be supplanted by a larger s rue- i
ture more adapted to the demands of 1
O.her ei.tetprises of less magnitude
are everywhere to be seen. A. W.
Cheney is erecting two desirable cot
tages on Ninth street, just Buch houses
as small families will need. H. L.Pat
terson haB lately completed three cozy
little bouses on Adams street. Fred
McCaueland will soon have completed a
handsome residence on Seventh street,
which is to be occupied by himself and
family. Mack Howell is erecting a fine
large residence on the north side of
town, which he and his family will soon
occupy. A. D. Putrow, J. M. Taylor
and Bruce Curry have each finished re
pairing and painting their residences on
11th and 12th streets. Wallace Cole
has lately completed a fine little cottage
on Seventh street near Shively's hall,
which will always remain desirable to
the public. And these are only a few of
the many improvements which lack of
space render it impossible to ' mention.
You msy say what you- please derog
ratory to western enterprise, but in Ore
gon City it is certainly increasing with
every rising sun. Tnts is the kind ot pro
gress that our city needs. These are
the features which attract new comers
and leave them a lasting impression,
and these are what will be a lasting ad
vertisement of the fair City by the Falls.
May the good work continue.
As a climax let us add : Every carpen-
rer is employed, in fact, there are not
carpenters enough, and the demand for
laborers is greater, at present, than the
Typical of the Heathen Chinee.
The Chinaman is certainly capable of
getting the most out of the leaBt of any
class of men. This truth is aftly illus
trated in a little incident which came
under our observation a few days ago.
The Chinamen who work on the 8. P.
track have grubbed outalarge fir stump,
and dug a place out of the bank.thus ob
taining altogether about 20x20 feet, and
planted this plot full of China cabbage.
After doing this these industrious fellows
erected a trough from Singer's creek, a
distance of 70 yards, and by means of
the trough they conduct water in abund
ance to their plants. A white man
might have lived along the same
track 500 years and it would never have
occurred to him that he could dig a gar
den out of the embankment: neither!
would he have been apt to take the
trouble to attach a trough to the creek
and thereby get a valuable means of ir
rigation. TO CURE A COLD IN ONE DAI
