get It right, for the people of Tamhlll
County ar very sentltlve on thla point.
It's Tamhlll County School Fair. That's
the Idea. Tha word "school" makes a
difference and distinction. The fair
Is an exhibit of the work of the
county' schools, products of th farm.
the homo and th workshop.
It la remarkable what children ran
do under proper direction. The ex
position building where th exhibits
ar displayed la a fine structure 70x140,
with a large circular gallery and well
lighted. Here you find, carefully ar
ranged, the bread and other good

mother's kitchen. In another section

In good condition. Third street, th
mala artery of commerce. Is a busy
avenue. Many fin business structures
are to be aeen. There ar three banks
that will stand the test of a midnight
raid of the bank examiner.
One of the most notable features of
this fair city ta lta moral aspect. Thla
la easily accounted for. The law ar
enforced. A Ion police officer does
his duty. Up to last election things

the result that a peaceful, wholesome
atmosphere surrounds the place. Peo

Club Is formed here for the purpose of
spreading the doctrine throughout t.e
There Is good hotel accommodation.
The Elberton la a first-class hotel, with
all modern conveniences, and would do
credit to a larger city. John Wortman,
a brother of II. C. Wortman, of Olds,
Wortman dc King, la permanently lo
cated here. The Wortman own the
First National Bank, capitalised for
1100.000, with deposits of 1500,000. A
savings department waa added two
montha asro with $60,000 deposits al
ready. The bank waa established In
lots aa a private concern, wrth John
Wortman acting aa cashier, porter and
Janitor. Portland bank clerks wltn
atand-up collars, red neckties and patent-leather
shoes should sit up and
tak notice.
Settler Ar Needed.
The trouble here, like many ether
sections of the country. Is lack of set
tlers on the land, and they have the
land where everything can be raised
suited to the climate, except com. Land
can be had here for from ITS to 1100
an acre. Everybody knows, or should
know, that land In the Willamette Val
ley la productive and needa no Irriga
tion. Nature furnishes her ewn abun
dant aupply.
Th great event of th School Fslr
waa the baby show. -Old Tamhlll
crowned herself with glory, for a finer
collection would be hard to find. A
grand parade of the babies in decor
ated baby-carrlagea waa made on Third
street. The parade formed at Railroad
avenue, and. headed by a brass band,
marched to the fair grounds, where the
shew was held. Because the babies
measured well up to the standard In
every respect. It was most difficult to
select prtxe-wlnners In any class. In
many cases a vot had to b taken to
arrive at a decision. The weather was
Ideal, and. all told. It was a pleasatt
affair, with the result that everybody
waa pleased and hoped to have it re
peated next year.
Th city ta alive with people, all
wearing amiilng faces. Hotels, busi
ness houses, restaurants are doing a
rushing business, giving every indica
tion that ths Yamhill County School
Fair will remain a permanent institu
tion. The people here do not wish
their school fairs confounded with the
stereotyped county fair, with lta horse
racing, balloon ascension and red lem
onade, with a fly In It: and It shouldn't.
Great credit is due W. T. Macy. presl.
dent of the "Tamhlll County School
Fair Association." and H. H. Belt, the
secretary for the management, for tho
pronounced success of the fair. j

many expreea their Intention of going Into
Central Oregon. A number declare that
they will remain in Portland, but th pro
portion that is seeklner locstions In the
city Is smaller now than It was last
Spring. This is the most encouraging
sign of the Fall colonists' movement.
Coloalata Are of Coed Stock.
While the movement Is not so heavy as
It was six months ago. It Is steadier and
Is made up of a better class of people,
There are more families and fewer sin
gle men. There seems to be a greater
number of men with money to Invest In
homes and fewer lob-hunters.
If they can make suitable terms for the
purchase or lease of small farms. It is
probable that the greater number of them
will become permanent residents of the
state. Some of those who are coming to
look for work have wives and children
and are shipping their household goods
They will stay until they find something
to do. Most of these, however, are going
into the smaller towns of the state, where
the chances for securing employment are
better than In the larger cities.
Mr. Miller estimates that the number of
people coming through the Huntington
gateway averages 300 dally. The season
did not start with the rush that charac
terlxed last Spring's business, but It has
continued In steady volume. His advices
from Chicago and Omaha Indicate that
ths flow of future Oregon citizens will
continue In the same proportions until
the low-fare period ends. Last Spring
the movement In the middle of the period
waa but slight.
Low Ratee Draw Traffic.
Nearly all travelers declare that they
would not have come to the Northwest If
the railroads had not granted the low
rates. Most of them were attracted by
some form of advertising. While the pub
llclty work of the railroads has been re
sponsible for the coming of many, a large
number has been drawn by reading newi
It Is likely that the movement over the
northern lines into Portland equals that
on the O.-W. R. A. N. On this basis the
number of people coming to Oregon aver
ages 600 dally. It Is believed that this is
conservative estimate. In the 30-day
period, therefore, the population of the
state will be Increased by about 18,000.
The O.-W. R. N. Company has placed
colonization agents on ail trains coming
westward. They board the cars at or
near Huntington. These representatives
are uniformed, so that they may not be
mistaken for real estate agents. At the
aama time all the railroads are endeav
