EXHIBITS SENT TO
C. S. DOW LEAVES FOR CAPITAL TO
PUT CLATSOP COUNTY PRODUC
TIONS IN MOST ADVANTAGEOUS
Clatsop county exhibits have been
'shipped to Salem for the stat fair and
C. S. Dow left for the capital yesterday
morning to look after the interests of
this section. The shipments of apples
and grasses, vegetables ami other pro
ducts which will keep for a considerable
period, were made several days ago, but
the perishable exhibits will not be sent
to the fair until it is ready to open.
Mr. Dow is confident that the fruit
from the Nehalem will cause enthusiasm
among the sightseers at the fair, and he
is confident that he will get the blue
ribbon for his Gravenstein apples. The
letter made an excellent showing at the
county fair last week because of their
size and excellent quality.
The fruit from the Xehalem Valley
will be the most noticeable exhibit in
this line from Clatsop county, while the
stock of 0. L Peterson, of the Sunflower
Dairy, will bring attention to this im
mediate section. The Dutch Belted cat
tie from this farm have aroused great
interest among stockmen and those in
terested in dairying. Great care is be
ing taken of tlie stock so as to have
their coats in fine condition for the ex
hibition, and although there has been
little time to make all arrangements
Mr. Peterson is satisfied that his cattle
will not go unnoticed among the others
The potatoes, melons, pumpkins, and
vine vegetables of the county will be
well represented, and altogether the rep
resentation from this district will be
better than any previous exhibit from
this county. The importance of giving
thou'ands of visitors a chance to sec
v hat the county can produce should not
be overlooked, and Mr. Dow is doing his
best to have Clatsop' well represented.
Attack Of Diarrhoea Cored By One Dose
Of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
I was so weak from an attack of diar
rhoea that I could scarcely attend to
my duties, when I took a dose of Cham
berlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy. It cured me entirely and I
had been taking other medicine for nine
days without relief. I heartily recom
mend this remedy as being the beat to
my knowledge for bowel complaints.
