OREGON CITY ENTERPRISE, FRIDAY, JUNE 12, 1908.
NEWS OF THE COUNTY
Our people have been busy this
week and have done more than thoy
have done In a year. Even tho oldest
man took to himself that he was not
too old to vote. This old man Is the
oldest settler here and Is the only
TOter as old as ho Is that lives on his
donation land claim. There were a
few who did not go to the election.
Two of tho cream Handlers had 10
haul cream. One brought In Tuesday
2800 pounds of cream and all from
Highland and Shubel. This butter
factory by the Clear Creek Company
and Mr. Smith, the butter maker, has
become a source of good money mak
ing besides milking the cow for pro
fit. Mr. Smith, the buttermaker, has
to have a helper to get the butter out
in nhape. A young man by the name
of Crader is the helper and he is an
expert at the business for the experi
ence he has had. If he keeps on learn
ing, he may become foreman here, as
Mr. Smith may want to retire from the
business of buttermaklng, as most
young Americans get tired of a good
place for a better place.
There Is a fellow who lives in Da
mascus precinct who is a kind of a
curious fellow. He has a small gar
den spot of Clackamas County soli.
This Damascus fellow don't allow his
real name put in the papers and says
he will thrash the fellow that puts his
name in the paper. Now this Damas
cus fellow says he is no farmer. He
is a miner. He sowed one acre and
fifteen rods in rye and sowed 90
pounds of rye and 60 pounds of vetch
on this garden spot of one acre and
fifteen rods and commenced to har
vest it in February and fed it to three
milch cows and cut about one-fourth
of the garden spot over three times,
and the rye and vetch has grown to
three feet high at present time. The
cows were fed on the one-fourth all
they needed for grass in three months.
Now one can understand from the
description of this Damascus fellow
whether he is a miner or a farmer and
whether or not It would Induce other
Clackamas County fellows to try some
other Clackamas County garden spot
to raise winter grass for the profit of
the butter production, especially in
Clackamas County. The butter eaters
are on the increase. It don't make any
difference whether one is a miner or
whether he js a farmer. He has to
have something to eat and that which
produces the best eatables is the best
ta live on.
Royal Sprague, who had been work
ing in a logging camp down on the

Near a year ago, John Sprague, Roy
al's brother, died and now Royal has

ought to get ready to die.
