Now that the water commission have or

lr would b a matter of almost criminal

a.d Clackamas county to fail in providing
nd arranjrinjr a creditable exhibit of the
productions of this section for the industrial
exposition next fall. No county on the Pa
cilie coast affords better n.aaterial for a va
ried and complete exhibit than Clackamas,
Its manufactured products, minerals,
woods, grains, fruits mid vegetables, would
lone make a veritable exposition if prop
erly arranged. Now is the time to com
mence the work of gathering the material
tir this exhibition, and with a little con
certed action on tie part of those interested
il could be made an advertisement that
would be worth thousands ot dollars to
Clackamas county. Space for the exhibit
can be obtained free of charge, and the op
portunity is worth grasping. The coming
exposition will be conducted on a grander
scale than ever before, and thousands of
visitors will he present from every part of
the Cnited Stales.
