DECIDE TO BUILD
ON PRESENT SITE
At a largely attended meeting of
the Congregational Church meinU-rs
last Sunday the question of the site
for their new church, was finally set
tled. Since their acceptance of an
option on the Broslus property some
time ago ft strong sentiment seems
to have develojted In favor of build
ing on their present site. So strong
dll this sentiment seem to the trus
tees that they called for a secret bal
lot to determine the preference of the
people. The ballot stood seventy
five to three In favor of building on
the present location. The church
then voted unanimously Instructing
the trustees to proceed with the
building and make suitable arrange
ments by trade or purchase for a new
parsonage. Work will lie begun as
soon na plans and specifications enn
be drawn up.
SPRAY COMPANY TO
The Hood Itlver Spray Company,
which has been successfully operat
ing a plant here for several years,
has made application to the city
council for a permit to build a fac
tory near the freight depot, and, If
granted, the company will build n
much larger plant.
It Is stated by members of the
company that there will be nothing
offensive about the plant, as It will
be operated at a time of year when
the wind will carry any fumes that
might be disagreeable away trom
the city. With a larger factory, the
company will enlarge the business
and make It an even more valuable
addition to the city's Industries.
HILLCREST SCENE OF
DOUBLE SOCIAL EVENT
The beautiful new home at Hill
crest Orchard, In the line (irove sec
tion of the valley, the residence of
Mr. and Mrs. M. M. Hill, was the
scene, last week, of two very enjoy
able social functions.
On Wednesday afternoon Mrs. Hill
entertained about fifty ladles at
whist, after which a luncheon was
served. The prizes were books, the
first being won by Mrs. IMlbronner
and the second by Mrs. Brownlee.
On Friday evening Mr. and Mrs.
Hill entertained about sixty guests
at tea. After the gentlemen hud en
loved their cigars In the "den,"
twelve tables of progressive whist
were put In play. The first ladles
prize, a cut glass vase, w us won by
Mrs. Otten, and Mr. Kelr won the
cut glass and silver cigar Jar, the
first prize for gentlemen.
The table nti"l other decorations
were pink and white. In harmony
with the apple blossoms that deco
rated the rooms on both occasions.
Sweet peas of the same color were at
each plate on Friday night.
The city and valley were well rep
resented In the Ratherlng, and all
had a thoroughly good time and

Tha Round Earth.
The globular form of the earth was
not discovered, but simply rediscov
ered, by the moderns. The globular
form of the earth was taught by Tbales
of Miletus as early as 640 B. C and
Pythagoras, about COO B. C, demon
strated from the varying altitudes of
the stars that the earth must be round.
Aiisarchus of Samoa maintained as
long as 280 B. C. that the earth was
globe shaped and turned on its own
xls. So far as we moderns are con
cerned the rotundity of the earth was
first proved beyond all cavil by the
great voyage of circumnavigation by
Magellan In 1522. Since that time there
has been but one side to the question
of the earth's shape.
