share of activities. Much real estate is
changing hands, land la being cleared,

general reigns in that section.
There is every assurance that in a
few years St. Johns wilt be one of the
most favored suburbs of Portland. The
old motor line which has serve4 Its day.

trolley line. This will do away with the
transfer at the junction and give a
much better car service to St. Johns
and intermediate points.

To The Most Popular Elk
IN OREGON OR WASHINGTON
WHO WILL WIN? ,
The Order of Elks Is notably a progressive one. The Portland Lodge
of Elks is especially so. For every enterprise of publlo interest they can
always be counted on to carry out their part to a successful Issue. A
few years ago the order here planned and carried out with great eclat a
society circus. In 1900 the Portland Lodge gave Portland its first street ,
carnival, and now the lodge is pushing on another venture of the same
kind. Benevolent Protective Order of Elks Is what these antlered mon
arohs call themselves, but which they abbreviate, after the American fash
Ion, to B. P, O. E. Some wag once declared that these letters stand for
"Best People on Earth." This isn't very far froia the truth, either.
The Oregon Daily Journal believes that so progressive and popular' an
organization as the Elks must necessarily be made up of popular men.
