who have the arrangement for the
affair. In charge are hurrying around
with a concentrated expression on
their faces which promises great do
ings before the clock strikes mid
night tomorrow. And nearly every
one is taking a few minutes today
or will take them tomorrow to dig
out the old drew or apron, siinbon
net. overalls, hickory shirt or patched
troupers which are necessary to prop
er costuming at the affair. It won't
le a fussy affair. Kar from It. While
hobnails are frowned upon, almost
iinythlng else goes and some great
make-ups are sure to be there. The
ladies want it made plain, however,
that it is not necessary to go to the
expense of purchasing old clothes if
you have none. Ilorrow them from

the garden and, girls, any old ging
ham gown will do. The hall is going
to lie remodelled Into a resemblance
of the Interior of a barn and a few
cows may possibly be tied In the out
of the way corners for effect. The
music will be old-fashioned In spots
and schottisches, lancers, Virglna
reels, square dances and all sorts of
old-time go producers will be inter
mingled with the one-steps, two steps
and waltzes. The orchestra will be
dolled up as well as the rest and if

A Birthday Surprise.
A number of friends met at the
home of Mrs. J. L. Wilcox, 200
iGreshara street, to surprise here on
her birthday with a postcard shower,
which they certainly did, while she
was reading the news from the Tid
ings. Her daughter Irene, being in
the secret, seemed as much surprised
as her mother. Enough said. A
good time was had. The evening
was spent playing cards and telling
stories till lunch was served at 11
p. m., which consisted of sandwiches,
pickles, cakes, tea and coffee. All
went homo hoping for another birth
day surprise to occur soon.

most effective being ghost stories told

An excerpt from the certified pub

tains the following:
"All of these collections have been
promptly deposited In tho treasury.
Tho sheriff is observing the law re
quiring all delinquent taxes to be
brought forward on the current rolls
and entered on the tax receipts. This
is a huge task, and they are doing
the work as diligently as possible
during the stress of a heavy tax col
lection. It Is praiseworthy in the
sheriff ot find his office administered
with no bustle or confusion. Only
expert men are employed In the of
fice, in the tax collections and other
departments .of the office. And it

Corvallis, Ore., Sept. 13, 1916.
Mr. G. A. Gardner, Jacksonville, Ore.
Dear Sir: I have just received
your semi-annual statement, and it
shows the county's affairs up in fine
It is a great pleasure to get a
statement which can be relied upon..
Among the seeral counties where 1
were, I am glad to testify that Jack
son county is now one of the best
administered in the stato. Your of
fice, the Sheriff's, the Treasurers
and the Recorder's can not be beat.
When I began to audit Jackson
county In 1 909, there had never been
and audit of the affairs of the coun
ty, and naturally there were some
things to correct. Especially as I
went back of that time ten years,
but since the audits have been made
regularly since that time, the county
has been coming to the front better
and better until now it can not be
I was never more surprised, and
agreeably surprised, than last winter
when I found the offices in such
uniform excellent condition. It
speaks volumes for the business of
auditing, and it speaks more for the
Industry, care and attention of the
officers. Yours truly,
J. H. WILSON.
