Master Frye and a party of Astoria
newspaper men and good roads en
thusiasts are planning a trip to the
Nehalem country. The pilgrimage will
be made after regatta week. Residents
of the Nehalem valley are anxious to
secure a good highway from the city

arrange meeting at the varloua dis
tricts and formulate aome definite plan
of action. With good roads leading
south to the Clatsop county line, the
people of the Nehalem valley would
be enabled to market their produce,
which now It absolutely worthless to
them except for home consumption.
If all of the farmers can be got to
gether and Induced to agree upon some
plan agreeable to the various road dis
tricts, It Is believed the highway propo
sition can e satisfactorily settled.

Wood and Iron, a San Francisco
Journal, says of the lumber trade sit
uation: "The month of July Just
passed has seen a slight Improvement
In the condition of the general lum
ber trade of the Pacific coast, but there
Is still room for much more of the
same trade betterment The closing
down of some of the pine mills of the
Pacific northwest has proved a valu
able Influence In this Improvement and
It Is too bad that more of them cannot
close their' doors for a while. Such
would be the case were there not finan
cial reasons for the operation of the
plants. Then, again, there has been
an increase In the eastern and middle
west demand for all classes of lumber
from the Oregon and Washington mills,
which relieves the San Francisco mar
ket of much of Its dumped output. All
In all, there Is a visible picking up in
the pine field, which Is a subject of
congratulation to the general lumber
prayer before the 13,000 people who
will gather at A., F. C. park on the
afternoon of August 28! ' Just watch
my smoker and I'll demonstrate to you
that I knew what I was doing when
I appointed my staff."
Word wa received from Chinook

secure assistance. When a party re
turned Burke could not be found. Sev
eral searching parties were then or
ganized and on Monday evening the
missing man was located. For nine
dayt he had subsisted on berries and
was almost dead when found. He I

trast with those previously heard from.

ir. the number of persons ' In the
county between the ages of 4 and 20

spondingly large, while in many of the
counties the number of teachers em
ployed Is considerably less than laat
year. Several counties are still to be
heard from. The report from Clatsop
county shows a satisfactory gain in the
number of persons of school age, be
ing now 4414, as against 4247 last
year. The amount of money spent dur
ing the year was 1107,841.94, and the
