mended. Battalion Chief Holden has

Portland Terminal at Klrst-and-Alder-Strret
Portland will become the terminal of
one more interurban electric line Sun
day morning, when the first through
train of the Willamette Valley South
ern Railway irom Mount Angel rolls
into the First-and-Alder station.
A trackage agreement has been made
for handling the through trains of the
Willamette Valley Southern over the
tracks of the Portland Kailway Light
& Power Company between Oregon
City, the present Willamette Valley
Southern terminal, and Portland. First-and-Alder
depot will be the Joint pas
senger terminal of the-two roads. Ar
rangements for the sale of through
tickets and for special "week-end"
round-trip fares between Portland and
Mount Angel and intermediate points
cf the Willamette Valley road also
will be made.
The initial through service, which
commences Sunday, will consist of two
through passenger trains, of two cars
each, in each direction, and this service
will be supplemented by the local trains
of both systems, which make close con
nections in both directions at Oregon
The first through train northbound
will leave Mount Angel at 7 A. M. and
arrive at First and Alder, Portland, at
9 A. M. Returning, this train will leave
southbound at 9:15 A. M., arriving at
Mount Angel at 11:20 A. M.
The second regular daily train will
leave Mount Angel, northbound, at 4
P. M.. arriving at Portland at 6 P. M.
Returning, this train will leave First
and Alder at 6:15 P. M. and. arrive at
Mount Angel at 8:15 P. M.
In addition to this, the two Oregon
City trains leaving Portland at 6:30
A. M. and 1:30 P. M. make direct con
nections with Willamette Valley South
ern trains at Oregon City at 7:25 A. M.
and 2:30 P. M.. respectively, so there
will be virtually four through trains
out of Portland each day for points on
the new Mount Angel line.
The Willamette Valley Southern was
launched a few years ago by private
interests. The Portland Railway, Light
& Power Company guaranteed the
bonds of the new road.

through a- series of very special
statements, the progress that has
been made in recent years in the
to correct certain fallacies in the
minds of some concerning the effects of coffee
drinking to impress indelibly upon the mind of the people the ab
solute importance of buying coffee that is fresh roasted
to show how highest efficiency may be secured in the
cup, and thus demonstrate how one may get full value and
satisfaction for the money one expends for coffee, and
to give as proof thereof the result of scientific tests by
such high authority as Professor McMaken, of Columbia
The first of these very special statements will appear in this
You will be interested in them because they will tell you of some
things you have never heard before, and some things you will be
