The Oregon State Pharmaceutical
Association held its 25th annual,
Silver Jubilee, convention at New
port commencing on the 14th and
ending on the 19th. 250 druggists
and their families attended the con
vention. This was the largest at
tendance the society has had since
its organization. The meetings
were held in the Opera House.
The sessions were all interesting
and a'number of able papers were
read by different members of the
society and the discussions that fol
lowed were very able and instruc
tive. A more cheerful, jolly set
of people never met at Newport,
they had left the dull care.s of busi
ness at home and were out for a
good time. The weather was all
that could be desired. The ther
mometer ranged from 65 to 70
degrees just pleasant. In the
Valley at that time the tempera
ture was 95 to 106 at Albany and
Bedford. The business sessions
were held in the forenoon and the
afternoons were devoted to stroll
ing on the bead and to taking
excursions to vsrious points of
interest along the coast. The agate
beach. Punch Bowl. Otter Bock,
Lighthouse, Jump Off Joe and
other points of interest were vis
ited. Several excursions were
tsken out over the bar to deep
sea fishing. This was greatly en
joyed by all the party. Newport
provided a number of stunts to
amuse the people. Among them
the clnm bake, the Indian feather
dsncc, the baseball game, the tug
war pulled off by the druggists
snd traveling men, the latter
winning. The traveling men were
heavy weights and won in the tug
of war and got the silver cup.
Tbe clam bake was of th most
interest and drew a big crowd.
The management was good, no
trouble of any kind. This bake
consisted of clams, crabs, fish, and
potatoes cooked to the Queen's taste
by tbe prince of eouks. Jesse Frev
and R. A. Toozer. By their asso
ciit on with the Indians gave them
' a knowledge of how the clams
should be cooked with hot rocks
and sea wtcd. according to the
ancient manner of cooking them.
About 1500 people partook of the
feast. By this mode of cooking all
the flavor vt the articles cooked
is retained. The clam bake was
gotten up by the Commercial Club
and the citizens of Newport as a
special treat for the druggists, and
the druggists were served first as
the guests of honor, yet there was
enough for all present. None was
mide sick by eating the clams be
cause they were so nicely eooked.
The Indian feather dance was also
a special feature of the entertain
ment and gave general sati if action.
Twenty-five Indians and white men
and women were in the dance
dressed up in true Indian style and
you could not tell the Indan from
tbe white. A paleface was tied and
burned at the stske in the old
fashioned way. This was a thril
ling and exciting scene and lo ked
almost as if it were real. A red
light waa burning around the
captive and tho warriors danced
around with wild terriffic yells that
made the hair of your head atand
on end. It was a good imitation of
the way the Indians killed their
captives and greatly interested the
audience. On Saturday evening
tbe druggists with their famili.a
took a swim in the natatcrium.
Thia was a real luxuiy enjoyed by
all who took part in it. On Sunday
at 1:30 our guests and visitors left
on Btsawfual train for their homes,
all expressing themselves as being
well pleased with Newport and
their entertainment and thought
