ATHENA. Or., July 23. A decision
to have a representative on the board
of managers of the county federation
of commercial associations was taken
here yesterday by the Athena Com
mercial Club when A. C. Kogers. mem
ber of Watts & Rogers, a bis hardware
and implement store of which Mr.
llogers Is manager, was designated to
represent the Athena organization.
The decision was made after a visit j
by C. I. Barr, secretary of the federa
ted clubs of the county and J. S. Har
vev of the Kast Oregonian. We came
i P to secure data for the county book
let whlh is to lie issued soon by the
federated clubs, and to see how Athena

the information is that it is mighty
convincing, because the town has some ,

claims to merit that will push some of I

H'nr instance, too hiiim v..--i. i

gets of the town on upproachi. g It,
tv.m, imv sidi is that it Is very clean.
The streets are well kept, there are
many beautiful bungalows and modern
i evidences that challenge attention,
and buildings arc well painted as a
rule. A stranuer gets such a clear im
pression of this attribute of cleanll- j
ness, that he could forgive other less'
desirable features, if they do exist. On j
our visit we didn't find any undesirable j
things, so our id.'a of Athena is do- j
I'ldeillv rood. '
Another thins that took our eyes Is
the svstem of street lights which pre
vails. The old arc lights have been
superceded by lamp posts which hold
one lamp, enclosed in white glass.
To Much Paving
Th's summer has seen a great Im
provement made in the streets of the
town. Main street was the only street
paved until this year, hut about IS
blocks have been added. The work Is
spread over Adams and Jefferson
streets, which have two blocks each:
then there are six blocks on Fifth
street. One new block has been laid
on Currant street, and there are five
blocks on Third street. Henry Rarratt
is mayor of the town.
No town amounts to anything as a
general thing unless it has a live news
