OREGON CITY ENTERPRISE, FRIDAY, DECEMHEU 31, 1909.
Looks Like Hard Wood-Costs
Less Wears As Long
Ko cracks cr crevices where dust can
accumulate, no inlays or boards to work
loose, warmer and more elastic to the tread
Parkctt Floor Covering
l IT C.OML.3 IN ROLLS
is the best and most sanitary floor covering
for bedrooms, nurseries, dining rooms, libra
ries, billiard rooms, and all good rooms
in the house.
hi rolls, 78 inches wide, in beautiful in-
hid, natural wood designs; economical,
practically "unwearoutable." Easier to
clean than carpets or hardwooj floors the
id?al flocr covering.
Positively the greatest thirc ' r pro
duced for hotels, clubs, hospitals, wheels
every kind of big building where hard wear
would put anything else literally "out of
business." Great saving as well.

BUYING A CURIOSITY
William R. Fletcher's Story Won the SsconJ Prite in (lid Recent Contest for Stone Ahout
the Saturday Evening Post Boy. Mr. Fletclier i connectej with the Enterprine ml
hi story was published in the December Number of "Our Boy .
1 would not have written this story
If some time ago, for no particular
reason, I had not made up my mind
that 1 did not want to read the Sat
urday Evening Post, and at the same
time Edmund Uolluck, the POnI boy
In this city, made up his mind that he
would make me change my mind.
Week after week he called at my of
fice and tried to Induce me to buy
The Post. He Insisted that I was
doing myself nn Injustice by not
reading It. but I stuck to my original
boast that 1 would not read the pa
per, It surprised me that the kid did not
seem disappointed nl being turned
down. Hut he showed no signs of
giving up the light for possible cum
tomer. Promptly every thursday be
showed up, ns bright as before, and
untiringly urged me to "loosen up"
and spend a nlckle for The Post. I
could see by that time that he was
one of those boys who cannot under
stand "no" for nn answer one of
those lads who will eventually be sue
One day It dawned on me that he
had not been around for several
weeks, and 1 began to think he had
given me up as a hopeless ease. How
ever, he told me afterward that ho
had been hatching up a new scheme,
and! as It had taken him several davS
to think It out. he thought It best not
to annoy me any more until he h:id
perfected It and was ready to sprleg
It on me. You see I was going to be
taught to read The Post, whether I
wanted to or not.. The boy arranged
.every detail of the scheme, au'i. as
vou read this story, you will see mat
it worked out exactly ns he hud
planned and hoped.
I began to rejoice that he did not
pay me bis weekly vlidt mid lint Iff
nio ahout buying a paper, when, one
day, he bobbed up, as bright as ever
"tlood inornlng," he said, at he
opened the door and walked Into my
"Hello," I replied. "I don't ant
to buy a Post."
"Who nsked you to buy one?" he
It was not until then that I looked
up from the paper 1 was reading and
saw that The Saturday ICwiiIng Post
bag was not on his shoulder. I be
gan to congraiulute myself because I
thought 1 was free from attack. I
Just figured It out that hUNlmsi had
gone bad and that he was not selling
papers any more. Hut that was only
a little fancy of my own. I win mis

seemed rather rommunlcntlve that
morning, more so than I had i ver
seen blm. The conversation drifted
from one mibject to another and, tin
allv, we were talking about printing.
I think. At least, It was something
closely relating to the publishing bus
iness. Suddenly my visitor said:
"Sav. do vou know the name of the
I oblest publication III America?"
i I thought for a minute, and then
frankly confessed that I did not.
