I ' Celebrating May Day.
MAY day is becoming a more and
more important date on the Amer

large cities, where people are not so
'near to nature as in the smaller
'towns. But the May day spirit Is

their May poles and folk dances. Now

N the great forest that lies Just
north of Far-Away-Land lived a
hunter and his family. Although they
had very little and were even cold
when the north wind came sweeping
down from the Pole in the long Winter
nights, they were very happy. Close
against the side of their tiny house
grew a straight young pine tree. In
the sweet Summer days the children
played on the soft brown carpet of its i
fallen leaves while the wandering
breeze sang to them as it passed on its
way to the sea, and the little tree, too.
whispered quaint forest legends.
When Winter came and the children
had to be Indoors, it would tap at the
windows with its slender green fingers,
calling: "I am here, little folks." And
in stormy black night it would sing
to them as they lay huddled close to
gether in their little bed under the
eaves the song that the snowbird
brought from distant Ice fields.
At Xmas the Hunter ventured forth
in the bitter weather and brought in a
ree. The little pine looking in through
the frosted pane was sad to think his
playmates had not chosen him. As
they sat by the fire Xmas night, a
stranger came to the door and asked
shelter from the snow and Icy wind.
'I fear its little else we have to
offer, sir," said the hunter giving him
the warmest corner of the hearth and
the best of their simple cheer. The
little pine tree mourned In its wind-
shaken branches. "Dear wee folks," it
sighed; "have I not sheltered and loved
you long? Yet the boughs of another
swing low with your rosy apples and
necklaces of popcorn, all white and
gold. His fingers are tipped with
flame; mine. cold and colorless.
'Listen," said the hunter's wife, "'how
the wind sings in the pine trees." But
the stranger, who was wise in wood
magic knew what the little tree said.
He took the children on his knee
and told them curious tales of dryads
and elves, legends of the robin's scar
let breast and the snipe's long bill and
lots of things that all little folks like
to know. When- they had fallen fast
asleep at last, he rose and laid them
gently in their low bed.
"Now, said he, "I must be going.

"Ah, but the forest is my home," he
replied softly: "the wind's way is mine,
the trees my children, " and was gone
into the night. Although "the .hunter
searched for him not so much as a
footprint could he find. But the little
tree heard a voice saying, "Take care

Issue August 21.
MILWATJKIE. Or, July 22. (Special.)
The City Council last night author
ized Auditor David P. Matthews to pre
pare for a special election to be held
August 21 to submit to the voters of
Milwaukie the proposition to Issue not
more than 125.000 in water bonds with
which to complete the distribution sys
tem of the municipal plant, already
partly completed, for Bull Run water,
and to extend the main to the Open
Air Sanitarium and 37 other residences
of Milwaukie Heights.
In the ordinance nothing Is said
about acquiring the two privately
owned water plants. It is understood
there will be funds available out of
the $25,000, if authorized, to purchase
these plants in addition to completing
the distribution system, if an agree
ment with the owners can be reached.
Although at the last election the ma
jority was against the purchase of
these plants, there now is a sentiment
that the owners should be given some
thing for their property. The income
from water revenue, it is stated, will
take care of the Interest on the water
bonds and provide a sinking fund, and
Milwaukie will have one of the best
water systems in the state.
