his new laundry Monday and is now

a much needed innovation and we pre
dict for it unqualified success. John

The new ice plant at the corner of
13th and Main streets began operations
this week. The new plant will manu
facture ice for home consumption and
Portland and other neighboring towns.
The ice will be manufactured from the
waters from an artesian well which has
been drilled for that purpose. Thus do
the business enterprises of Oregon City
increase from day to day. verily, the
"World do Move."
The almost continous rainfall of the
past two months has had the effect of
' patting ClacKamas county farmers much
behind 'with their spring work. No
grain of any consequence has been
sown and the chances are that the wheat
crop will be cut considerably short.
There was very little fall grain sown
. and unless the weather is more favor
able than it has been, there will not
be much Bpring wheat sown. Altogeth
er the outlook for a big crop is not good.
Much illegal fishing is going on in the
Clackamas river uear this city. The
water bailiffs are using every percau
tion to capture the proachers, but so far
without effect. Several nets which had
been spread to catch fish, have been cap
turtd by the fishermen out none of the
fishermen have yet been caught. The
Clackamas is One of the best salmon
streams in Oregon and fishermen find it
a regular paradise. (
, The year 1903 was a prosperous one
for the Clear Creek Creamery Com
pany, a co-operative butter-making in
stitution located on the Clackamas river
a few miles from this city. In the 12
monthB this plant manufactured 41,261
. pounds of butter. This product netted
tne patron an average for the year of 29
cents per pound for his butter at the
creamery, or 262 cents when his cream
was called for. The cost of making the
butter was 2J cents per pound, and the
receipts fiom the sale of the crearrory's
output for the year amounted to $13,430.

Best Cough Medicine for Children.
When you buy a cough medicine for
small children you want one in which
you can place implicit confidence. You
want one that not only relieves but
cures. You want one that is unques
tionably harmless. You want one that
is pleasant to take. Chamberlain's
Cough Eemedy meets all of these con
ditions. There is nothing so good for
the cousin and colds incident to child
hood. It is also a certain preventive
and cure for croup, and there is no
danger whatever from whooping cough
when it is given. It has been used in
many epidemics of that disease with
perfect success. For sale by Geo . A.
