ary wolf better, perhaps, than any
otlier section of the Willamette val
ley. People who can be happy and
prosperous anywhere can be happy
and prosperous In Independence; be
cause, in addition to the great rewards
for those who court mother earth's
favor by use ot the fertile soils and
by converting their monster tree
plants, which have been growing for
these many years. Into lumber for the
markets of the world, the town is
backed by a cooperative and Industri
ous class of people, who are Just now
encouraged over the prospects for the
future. What prompted this new life
In Independence is not a matter of
irreat importance, but It may be said
that ths development of the mills
along the Valley & Slletz railroad, and
the renewed hop interests, together
with better roads and better schools,
have given the people renewed hopes,
and they will work in harmony to de
velop every resource. Another large
mill is under course of construction
by the Silets Logging & Lumber Co.
at what ia known as camp 1, and a
large mill at Hoskins was recently
completed. Independence being- the
terminus of the Valley & Silets rail
road, la made headquarters for these
enterprises, and they are proving a
frreat benefit to the city and country.
There are a number of smaller mills
aouthwest of Independence owned

Some years ago the writer predict
ed that the time would come when
Independence and Monmouth would
be one great city, the metropolis of
Polk county. The prediction may
nave been the result of strong Imagi
nation, It may have been Inspired it
may have been craty. But tendencies
of the present point toward' the ful
fillment of that prophecy.
Monmouth Is located two miles
west of Independence and with ths
paved road completed all the way be
tween the two cities they become near
er from every standpoint.
stats About Monmouth
Monmouth is located twelve miles
southwest of Salem on the Salem
Falls City branch of the Southern Pa
cific railroad. Of the soil in the coun
try surrounding, it can well be said
that there is none better In Oregon.
It is sufficiently rolling to require lit
tle artificial drainage. Is well adapt
ed to the production of all kinds of
fruits and berries and to dairying and
stackraislng. Although no longer con
sioerea a wneat country, spurred on
by the Inducements incidental to the
war, Monmouth raised last year 100.
00 bushels of wheat. Individual farm
rs in the district raised as much as
400 bushels of wheat in addition to
oats, vetch and other seed crops. -A
single prune orchard near Monmouth,
it la said, harvested 75,000 pounds of
prunes which sold for $11,000. Cher
ries grown In and around Monmouth
have mors than a local reputation.
Ths Monmouth Crenmory made
more than 100,000 pounds of butter
last year.
Monmouth is the home of the Ore
gon State Normal school, the only
state normal in Oregon. It is a city :
80 inhabitants, excluHive of the tu
dents, of which there are normally
400, The summer normal this year
will be of twelve weeks duration In
stead of six, and everything points to
the best summer term In the history
o flhe school. There will also be a six
weeks term at Pendleton conducted
under the direction of the Monmouth
board of resents. .
Oregon l(uds the world for Jersey
cows and Monmouth leads Oregon.
The Monmouth Herald, ably publish
ed by R. B. Swenson, is one of the
irreat fuctors In the development of
the city and country.
There U located In this little city n
tile factory owned and operated by
R. IT. Btoelquist aud O. H.t Partridge,
and there la said to be an inexhaust
abl supply of material close at hand
to keep the plant in operation for
many years. They are building a
side track from the Southern Pacif
ic road to th eplant and in the fu
ture brick will also be manufactured
as well a building blocks.
This week- will see the cbmpletlon
uf a new gravity water system, pro
Tiding water from Teal creek, a dis
tance of eleven miles, which will furn
lah a supply of water sufficient for
a population of five thousand or
more Inhabitants.
Within the pant year the Bank of
Monmouth has more thus doubled
Its resources, and this may be taken
as a criterion by which a correct es
timate can be made upon the pros
perity of the community. The resourc
es at the present time are close to
The Willamette Valley Lumber Co ,
under ths management of Kd Hamil
ton, will build a saw mill in Monmouth
this season, if present plans are con
summated, and there is every reuson
to believe that they will be. Jointly
ths citisens of Monmouth and the
Monmouth city council have purchas
ed a sits for the mill and will donate
the same to the company as soon as
arrangements are fully made to con
struct ths mill. Surveyors and an at
torney were in the city yesterday
looking after the preliminaries per
taining to the proposed mill. Mr.
Hamilton says the capacity will be
Ir. feci per day. Logs will be haul
ed by rail from the company's tlm
hr blt on the Lucklamute river.
Br a rcnt vote of the cltlxens of
Slatunestii It was decided to build a
rrwa&sttim n-ntlrg 11 1.000, and work

Dallas Rations Gas
Dallas, June 1 Dallas ' commercial
club has taken the gas situation In
hand and the supply of 250 gallons
per day la now all delivered by the
Standard Oil company to one gas sta
tion and before anyone can get gas
they have to procure a permit from the
secretary of the commercial club and
in order to get the permit, a person
must prove an emergency either com
mercial or otherwise. Perhaps when
the specific gravity law of Oregon is
repealed John D. will treat the Ore
gonians as he does other people.
Gasoline Thieves

Monmouth, Or., June I. When Kd
ward Noisen left his car standing cut
In front of his house Monday evening

had driven to Salem that day to get
hl tank filled, and the next morning,
when he wag ready for the day's drlvo,
the tank was empty. Some miscreant
had taken possession of the entire sup

of gas thieves in Monmouth that nlgnt
as a man named Jones lost a tank full
of gas In tltfe same way.

The Chandler Gives You the
Service You Demand
THOUGHTFUL men, in selecting an automobile, find in the
history of the Chandler Six a source of real confidence.
The Chandler motor of today is the development of the
Chandler motor of seven years ago, embracing refinements and
improvements which have been the natural development of
these years of service in the hands of thousands of owners, and
the constant application of the engineering skill and the since
rity of its builders.
Motors of one type and another have been heralded and retired within
these years. But the Chandler motor, its true superiority proven in service
on every roadway in America and in many nations abroad, has lived and
gone forward into a place of distinction.
Men who have owned and driven many cars, men from coast to coast
will tell you the Chandler is the leader of all sises. Over the long moun
tain roads or on the trails cf the desert or in crowded city traffic, anywhere
the Chandler will give you the service you demand. Its power, its flexibility'
and its sturdy endurance are not surpassed.
