Why do not some of the rublic spirit
ed people of Oregon City who labor for
the good of the community, see what
can be done towards establishing a free
public library here? There is no move
that could be made that co'ild and would
work more good for the younger gener
ation than the establishment of a library
which would be free for the public, lhe
library at first need not be extensive in
scope, but could be built up trom email
beginnings '0 proportions that would
work uncalculable value. There are
hundreds of young men iu Oregon City
who would spond more of their time
in the reading ot good books and less of
their time in carousing, if there were a
place where they could go of an evening
andpass a few pleasant hours poringover
the works of some good author.
The Clackamas county potato farmer
may perhaps be able to learn something
from his most successful rival in the old
country. Germany bats the world in
potato culture, largely because a ber- j
man farmer rardv plants seed potatoes 1
from hs own fields. If he cannot get j
fresh varieties 'Jrom a government ex. 1
periment station, or from some remote
district or foreign country, he does the
next best thing by exchanging witfa his
neighbors as far away from his own
farm as possible. The difference be
tween the isoii of the hills and that of ,
the valleys aids him, and if bis fields
lie in low, wet ground, he sends to the
dry, sandy hill slopes for bis seed, while j
the dwellers on tbe uplands plant po-
tatoes grown in the heavy soil of the
The patent fire extinguishing appar
atus which the O. C. M. Co. is estab

fire breaks out, stop cocks in various
parts of the buildings will be inBtantly
opened by the rising temperature, and
through the numerous minute holes in
the miles of iron pine every room will
be filled with fine rain.
Sentiment is somewhat divided as to
whether Louis Callahan who reported
that he was held up near Oswego last
Wednesday morning, was really held
up or was faking. The officers here
claim that they do not believe that Cal
lahan was held up, but there are part
ies living near Oswego who believe that
he was . He was met on the road a few
minutes after the alleged hold up took
place by a citizen of Oswego. .Callahan
told this man about the affair and ap
peared very much excited and fright
ened when he told his Btory. This
man is confident that Callahan told the
truth about the matter.

Don't hesitate to tell your doctor
that you are going to have his pre
scription filled at Huntley's. If he's
honest with you he will undoubtedly
say that Huntley will fill it as carefully
and as conscientiously as any druggist
in the state. If he SHOULD hem and
haw and say "well, I've written for a
new preparation and they MAY not
have it" or "Huntley is all right but
this is a private formula and he won't
know what it is" etc.; then don't you
believe him. His reasons for trying
to SEND you somewhere else would
be worth finding out. We have
the new drugs and chemicals as
fast as they come out and we also
have the private formulas; anyhow
you can trust us to be frank with you
If we don't have the necessary in
gredients, we'll say so; but we do not
have to turn away one prescription
in 500 for lack of the proper ingre
dient. We have it thats our busi
ness. Why not save 20 to 5 per
cent, on your prescriptions by always
coming to us?
