The Local Newipaper Published a Few Dayi Ago an Editorial Concerning Christmas
Shopping that was so Full of Good Advice and Sound Common Seme that we Think
it Best to Repeal it In Preference to Anything We Could Say on the Same AlHnterest
Ing Subject Just Now. Here It Is
Arc you a prospective holiday shopper? Then remem
ber that procrastination during holiday time is the thief of
comfort. We say this not only on behalf of our clerks and
shop girls, but for the benefit of the public. If you have
Christmas shopping to do, you should go about it at once.
The results will be more 'satisfactory to you as well.as to
the clerks who wait upon you. In this connection a few
"dont's" will not be amiss tor guidance of the shopper :
Don't delay your holiday shopping any longer than you can possibly help.
Don't put off shopping until afternoon when you can shop in the morning.
Don't be impatient with the store employes. . . . -
Don't jostle and push when by waiting patiently you can be as successful.
Don't take your baby into the crowded stores lest in the crush it be injured.
Don't expect the same attention from clerks two days before Christmas
that you can get now. . '
Don't expect to bfe waited upon at once, to the exclusion of other custom
ers, and don't lose your tentper. .
The young men and women who work in the department stores are obliged
to stand on .heir feet from 7:30 o'clock in the morning until 10

The Big Store in the Middled the Blocll,
A published statement concerning tlie
proposed automobile beach road from
Kort Stevens to Seaside, says that the
road will have to be abandoned because
Colonel White has informed the Astoria
Chamber of Commerce that no route
through the Military Reservation cau
!w had because of building operations
Thi is not as a matter of fact a cor
rect statement concerning this import
ant matter. Chairman F. A. Fisher on
tlw Good Roads Committee of the Cham
tar of Commerce when sect about the
matter yesterday afternoon stated that
the road could be built just the same aa )
originally planned. It was his idea and
the idea of his committee if possible to
build the road through Fort Stevens in
order to accommodate the army officer
who live there also, because the fort ia ,
matter of groat interest in thia section
and would have been one of the Bights
alone this way. But now that the road
can not be built through the reserva
tion but will have to be built around
the outside of it. There will be no par
ticular inconvenience to anybody by the
following out of this plan in the building
of this road excepting to the officers
of Fort "Stevens who very much regret
that the road can not be built so that
they! will be on the important highway
leading to the outer world. Colonel
White however has examined this mat
ten carefully and at the present time
does not see how the road can be built
through the reservation but it may again
be repeated that this does not- preclude
the beach road and the Clatsop County
Court with Judge Trenchard presiding
lrill as usual do all within their power
to assist the Chamber of Commerce in
carryinsr out this proposed good road
and making it an an assured reality for
the coming summer.
James Edwards Lost From the Dredger
W. S. Ladi Near Ft Stevens.
James Edwards, engaged On the dredge
W. S. Ladd aa assistant engineer, lost
hia life yesterday by drowning. Just
how the accident happened is not known,
thoueh it is thought that he fell over
board while engaged in his duties, aboard
the boat. While the vessel was abreast
of Fort Stevens, and the crew at lunch,
Edwards 'went to tiohten some nuts on
the suction pipe on the port side and
was not missed until he waa neeued ai
the pumps, of which he had cnarge,
when he could not be found. A thorough
search of the boat was made but no
sign of bini was evident, and the officers
and crew sorrowfully concluded that he
was lost, and, after drifting around on
an unsuccessful search for the unfor
tunate man the boat headed for port.
Edwards had been employed on the
Ladd for over sis years and was popular
with the officers and members of the
crew as well "as in Astoria. He was
native of Scotland, aged 38 years, 2U
years of which haa been spent in this
A sad feature of the accident is tliat
Mr. Edwards was to have been married,
at Christmas time, to Miss Emma Wag
ner, who is . now at her home in Drain,
Oregon.' He was a member in good
standing of tlie Eagles, his membership
being in the Dalles Aerie, and that
organization will be notified of his sud
den taking off. A reward of $50 is
offered, as advertised elsewhere in this
issue, for the recovery of his body.
