Albany Commercial Club In your
letter of yesterday you asked if there
Is going to be a demonstration up here
cn Good Roads day. Why, of course
there will be. You will never find the
people of Albany and Linn County be
hind on such a scheme as that. Our
County Judge has taken the matter in
charge, and, although he has not yet
worked out all the details, it is being
urged that all the business houses of
the county close up on the day selected
and that everyone ehall take a hand in
road improvement; and we have every
reason to believe this programme will
be carried out. It so happens that the
day set apart by Governor West does
not suit existing conditions in this lo
cality, and County Judge McKnightwill
name a later date, but this action on
his part will add to the success of the
movement rather than detract from it.
Koseburg Commercial Club I am
In receipt of your letter of April
15 in regard to Good Roads Day,
and have taken the matter up with
Henry Harth, who is chairman of our

As soon as a definite programme is

Bend Commercial Club In reply
to your inquiry regarding good
roads here, will state that . we
will work between 70 and 100 men
on- the roads here on Friday, April 24,
this day being chosen instead of the

caused to the merchants In closing

Which you enclosed a circular an

Lower Alblna, buried his two dogs
with military honors when they died
in November, 191L He wanted to bury
them in ground where they could not
be disturbed, but he was destitute and
unable to do so. So he wrapped them
in medicated linen. Dlaced a small
American flag in the wrapping with
them and stored them in the drawer of
a bureau at his shack on Mississippi
A second mortgage on his furniture
was due yesterday. He owed $100 in
tne first place and borrowed $125 to
pay it. He was unable to return the
$125 and his furniture was seized and
taken to a downtown office buildine-
for storage. The new owner, in look
ing through the drawers of the bureau.
found the linen-wrapped medicated
package. He was surprised, and think
ing the wrapping might contain the
body of a dead child, he summoned
Sergeant Stahl and Patrolman Wise.
The officers cut the wraooines of
the package, and instead of a child's
face found the bodies of "Fannie" and
Babe" wrapped in a silk flasr. Nota
tions on the white strips of the flag
showed that the dogs died November
