storage which the Wasco Warehouse has
it is filled almost to overflowing. The
causes for such a state of affairs is be

hold their wool for higher prices, which J
causes the lack of storage room in the

only as a producer of grain but of fruits
as well, be famous.

The party of twenty-eix Mazamas who
started from Portland, July 14th, for
Mount St. Helens, were deserted by
their packer last Sunday and left on foot
in the mountains a long way from home,

president of the Good Intent Society for
the past three years, was greatly sur

a dozen of the members of that society
walked into her parlors with the evi
dent intent to spend the afternoon.
Being heartily welcomed, the hours were
passed in euch a manner, as only

their appreciation of her efficient work
in the society and their affection for
her, whom it would be impossible to be
associated with and not becomo attached
to, the ladies presented her with a silver
pie-knife as a token of that regard.
Late in the afternoon refreshments
were brought in, this diversion be
