stricken down by typhoid fever and
died in a Portland hospital.
County Assessor Nelson is now busy
on the records of his office, which are
called the ''present-owner maps," and
which must be gone over every year by
the AaiesBor to change the names of
owners of property which has during
the year been transferred to others.
Since last March there have been 1600
deeds filed involving Clackamas County
property and the names of the pur
chasers of the properties must be sub
stituted on these maps for the owners
a year ago. In this way the Assessor is
able to assess the property to the proper
owner. All the real estate in the coun
ty is mapped out in this way. While
the expenses of the Assesor's office in
1902 were approximately $JOC0, and in
1903 13192, he estimates that in 1904
they will not exceed $2500,

The farmers and ranchers of this
county are In position to reap a harvest
of golden dollars from the rapid and un
expected rise in the potato market. Dtir
ingjthe fall and early winter very few
"spuds" were marketed on acu unt of
the extremely low prices thenp-evailing.
Many were even extremely alow in dig
ging and putting away thtir crop. Dur
ing the paBt month the market value of
potatoes has been gradually climbing up
ward until they are now worth more
than double what they were in the early
fall and winter wi very nearly all of
the crop in this county is in the hands
of the producers. The farmers of Clacka
mas county have had a very profitable
year and this sudden and unexpected
good fortune will but add to their
plethoric bank accounts.
