to the beach as soon as the spirit of
the Rose Festival departed. And
majority of them are Easterners. Dr.
end Mrs. H. H. Everett, of Lincoln,
Neb., are numbered among them. Dr.
Everett Is a well known physician and
he and his wife have traveled exten
sively covering the United States and
Europe. Dr. and Mrs. Everett visited
Portland during the Rose Festival and

Mrs. Caroline Hepburn, of Portland,
has arrived at the beach to be a guest
at the home of her brother, C. B.
Woodruff, manager of the W. P. Ful
ler Company of Portland. Until a year
ago Mrs. Hepburn made her home in
New York City. She was asked how,
according to her opinion, the Beach it
self compared with the Eastern beach
es, and she could quickly reply that
Oregon beaches were the best of them
11. Of course there Is one natural
feature about all the Western beaches
that comes ahead of the East, and
that is the beautiful sunsets that are

the afternoon so as not miss being on
the water's edge just as the sun ap
pears to sink into the waves.

stroyed a part of the town. To be sure,
the buildings are only temporary for
line substantial ones are to be erected
this Fall, but people have come down

cottages are to be seen.
