OREGON CITT. Or., June 20. (Spe
cial.) In the Spring of 1892 a group of
pioneer business and professional men
of Oregon City launched a Chautauqua.
The assembly was held at Gladstone,
two miles north' of Oregon City, the
following Summer. That was the start
and certainly a modest one for the
. old-timers hereabouts say the affair
lasted two or three days, a handful of
people attended, and the gate receipts
were a negligible quantity.
Two weeks from i.jxt Tuesday this
same association will hold its 22d an
nual assembly, in the same location,
and with several of the same directors
who helped start off the infant . its
..perilous Journey through the ups and
downs of Chautauqua life. Among these
' are H. E. Cross, the present secretary;
, C. H. Dye, the vice-president, and George
Harding, pioneer merchant.
The coming session will last 13 days.
Twenty-six programmes will be carried
:-. out in the main auditorium, seating 4000
i people. Summer school classes will be
. held each morning, interesting forum
. hours and countless other features will
si be given, and it is not improbable that

Some 4000 Portlanders belong to the
big Chautauqua family for such it is.
Tear after year these folks, with twice
as many scattered throughout Clacka-
mas County, plan for their annual pil
f grimage. to Gladstone, either to spend
j an occasional day at Chautauqua or to

than 100 feet, with a velvety carpet of

of the tract, which has been preserved.
It is given over exclusively to the
. Chautauqua, and. aside from the two
weeks' assembly each year, God's han-
dtwork remains undisturbed. H. E.
Cross is the owner of the beautiful
tract, and many years ago leased it to

The early history of Chautauqua was
' exciting, to say the least. The backers
; stood at their post through thick and
.- thin, and not so many years ago Chau
' tauqua began to pay expenses. Today
the institution is in a most flourishing
condition, with a. neat little sum tucked
away in the treasury. It is not, how
ever, nor has it ever been, a money
.; making institution. The Chautauqua is
. for all, rich and poor alike, and charges
; are madeon a cost basis, that the man
of meager means may have the same
: opportunity as his more fortunate
brother. If the Chautauqua pays ex
penses, well and good; if there is a sur

Charities estimates that to keep the
work of relief going throughout the
Summer $5000 will be required.
It had been decided, owing to lack of
funds, to close the office during the
Summer and not reopen until October

that came to the Charities made it
necessary to try to continue the work
through the Summer. Accordingly, the
campaign for $5000 was begun.

SIGNALS AROUSE FEARS
SMOKE AD FLASHES OS MOUNT
ST. HELENS ARE SEEN.
Witnesses of Heliograph Signs Made
by Parties on Peak Have Visions
of Volcanic Disturbances.
Clouds of smoke and lightning-like
flashes from Mount St. Helens yester
day afternoon aroused fears In the
hearts of a number of Portland resi
dents who unwittingly witnessed the
heliograph antics of parties of moun
tain climbers on St. Helens and Hood.
Through the clear air the mountains
were distinctly visible in all their pris
tine glory shortly after noon. Suddenly
a brilliant flash from St. Helens was
followed by a mysterious cloud of
smoke, and some who saw it Immedi
ately conjured up visions of volcanic
disturbance on the historic old peak.
There were hundreds of mountain
gazers, and as a result there were hun
dreds of Individual fears throughout
the early part of the afternoon.
The remarkably clear atmosphere
made the smoke and the flashes fascin
ating, however. St. Helens is covered
with an immaculately white blanket
of enow,-except in the one place where
a jagged cliff projects its black nose
skyward, and the heavy black smoke
from the signal squad showed up plain
ly on the mountain side after each sig
nal. A number of signals were executed
during the afternoon.

JUDGE ASKS ADVICE
Juvenile Court Jurist Sets

INVITATIONS SENT OUT

Associations Requested to

Advice from the public is to b
sought by Judge Cleeton, of the juvenile
department of the Circuit Court, be
fore he maps out a policy to be pur
sued in his department. Judge Clee
ton has invited school principals and
teachers and the public generally to
meet with him Thursday afternoon at
the Public Library at 4 o'clock.
The purpose is' to glean ideas from
school teachers and members of Parent
Teacher Associations as to handling
children in the school and in the home,
and also to get the co-operation of all
agencies in reducing the delinquency

In a letter to the teachers and
parent-teacher circles Judge Cleeton
"A brief outline of my idea Is that
the county and city should be divided
into as many units as there are school
houses, and that the principal of each
school should be the head of the ur.it,
and the principal could secure the co
operation of each teacher in that
school, and each teacher's field of work
would be the pupils under his or her
care, who might in their home life
need tne influence of other agencies
outside the home.
"The Juvenile Court could.be ad
vised in this way of the needs of these
particular children and particular
homes, and in conjunction with the
Parent-Teacher Association, could set
in motion certain influences which
would reach these homes either direct
ly or indirectly.

The noted specialists of the medical
world have recently sounded 10 universal
a warning against accumulated waste in
the Lower Intestine that newspapers
throughout the country have taken it up
and published detailed reports of their re

The New York Times tells of a case
where a child had what was believed to
be an incurable form of Tubercular joint
disease. Waste in the Large Intestine had
o affected it that all but nine inches were
removed. "The result was astonishing in
week's time, the internal organs re
sumed all their normal functions, and in a
few weeks the patient was apparently ta
