THE REXALL STORE
We are often asked by other druggists, by traveling men and
by, our friends how we have built up the largest drug store in the
state, except one in Portland, in so small a town as Oregon City.
The answer is easy:
1st Quality goods first, last and always.
2nd Willingness to "make good" every just claim for disatis
faction. We do not consider a transaction closed till our customer
3rd The best clerks that we can hire; experienced, courteous,
well-paid clerks who take a personal pride in the business and have
the interest of our customers always in mind the same as the
4thA considerate -charge system that is open to every
honest manand woman,
The broadest claim made by the, average paint
dealer or paint maker, is that their product is "just
as good" as Sherwin-Williams. That in itself Is a
nice compliment to Shrrwin-Williams Paint, but
most people after trying them all get back finally to
Sherwin-Williams as the kind that locks better!
last longer and goes farther than any other brand.

HARRY JONES CONTRACTOR a
The questions of a thorough know
ledge of all branches of the contract
ing business and supplying an ade
quate equipment to handle contracts
of any magnitude are among the es
sential elements In fixing the degree
of success any man or firm la to reap
In that line of endeavor for they un
questionably have a more Important
bearing than almost any other. Harry
Jones, of Oregon City, has fully dem
onstrated his capabilities In the gen
eral contracting line, and as he erec
ted the Hawley Pulp ft Paper com
pany's mills In Oregon City and psrt
of the mills of the Crown-Columbia
Pulp A Paper company, at Camaa,
there Is no question of ample equip
ment. These are both large and ex
tremely Important joba and reflect
great' credit upon Mr, Jones aa one
of the most progressive and up-to-date
contractors doing business in this part
of the country. He Is prepared to
undertake contracts anywhere In the
West and carry them promptly to a
satisfactory conclusion, and Is In the
field to enter bids on anything In his
line, Including reinforced concrete
work, concrete walls and all classes
of buildings. He has erected many
structures In Western Oregon and
Washington, his operations' not betng
confined to any on community. Mr.
Jones Is a well known and highly re
spected cltlsen of Oregon City, main
taining his offices In the Masonic
Temple. No man familiar with condl
ttone In this part of the West Is more
enthusiastic than he regarding the
future or Is more willing to lend as
sistance along th lines of develop
ment. It makes no difference how
large or how small buildings are to
be erected, a contract should not be
let without first consulting Mr. Jones.
H. YOUNG SECOND HAND
Oregon City owes much to th en
terprise and energy of her leading
bualneaa men who have worked un
ceasingly for her best Interests.
Among those who have been excep
tionally active In asatsttng to forward
th development of this county may
be mentioned Mr. O. H. Tonng, who
conduct a successful establishment
on Main street wher may b found a
splendid stock of second hand furni
ture and household necessities, which
are sold at remarkably low prices, and
which are In may Instances as good
ss new. He also carries a large
amount of new goods which he sells
very reasonably. Mr. Young has given
much attention to the collection of
old colna and Indian goods of various
kinds, and he has at the present time
some very fine speclm-ns from which
to make selection. He has been, a
resident of this section for the greater
part of the past twenty-five years, and
la one of our best known and most
highly respected citizens. He has al
ways been prominent worker for the
future greatness of Oregon City and
Clackamas County, and is deserving
of more than mere mention in this
review of the city's best Interests and
cltlsenahlp. He Is wide-awake and
progressive, and a firm believer In the
future of Oregon City.
There is a disposition on the part
of people of the East to look with
skepticism upon statement made
regarding possibilities In the West,
but these should remember that there
are thousands upon thousands of peo
ple now living in this part of the
country who originally came from the
East probably from your neighbor
hood and certainly you may bellev
their statements. None of them go
back, and certainly that la an indica
tion that they are satisfied and doing
The Bank of Oregon City
has the distinction of being THE OLDEST BANK IN CLACKA
M AS COUNTY, having been organized and established nearly
thirty years ago, and during its whole existence has been under
the same management. The policy of the bank ha alwaya been
to look out for the safety and security of tts depositors' money

has grown we have kept pace with K and have Increased our

ting more room for the working force, as well as customers, and
better light and ventilation. New fixture with all modern cow
venlencea were Installed. A large fir snd burglar proof vault
of th latest and most approved construction was built, and

complete safety for our fiends and securities. .With smpl cap
