light rain which fell over The Dalles
and surrounding points this morn

the county roads in excellent con

T. Adklsson. The Dalles-Dufur road,
recently graded and pu( in as gopd
condition as possible, had already be
gun to show signs of getting dusty
and cutting up in places. The light
rain which fell this morning Is just
about enough to pack the dust and
put the road In good condition again,
in the opinion of Adklsson.

Inhabitants. Some weeks later the
people K were awakened again at 2
o'clock in the morning to find the
principal buildings of the village in
flames. The fire spread until prac
tically all of the homes and public
buildings were destroyed. The people
'saved some of their household goods.
One of the leaders of the "Black
and Tans," who started the fire was
captured and the ehraged Irish were
preparing to hang him when an old
lady pleaded with them not to kill
him and he was relensed.
About that time Mr. Welsh de
cided that the United States was the
best place for him. The country was
under martial law and no railroads
were operating. He employed n 'man
to lake him by automobile to Queens
town, 84 miles distant. He waited
there 13 days before he could secure
transportation. The return trip was

"The time is especially auspicious,"
Harding said, "for the exchange of as

ON MATERIAL ALONE
First the Belrobe Method saves' you from half a dollar to ten dollars on
the original cost of your material. Th9 Belrobe Method gives the pattern
layout that is used by professional cutters, the so-called "professional lay"
that enables you to buy the least possible amount of cloth. With the Belrobe
Method you can save at least one-fourth to a yard of material. At the same
time the professional lay gives you the correct drape or "hang" because it
plans correctly for the fold and grain of the goods. Every question of get
ting the right line, of allowing for hems and letting out, is taken care of.
There is only one way to get the Belrobe Method. You cannot buy it in a
book, or study it in a course of lessons. You get it only with our patterns.
Beginning with April, our new patterns will include the Belrobe Method.
