Lee will leave for Portland today where they will make their home for a time. Mr. Lee published the Falls City News for a number o f years until the 1st o f June when he sold to the present owners. His busi ness relations with the public has always been very pleasant but circumstances over which he had no control induced him to dis pose of his interests here and seek other fields. He was city audi'or and police judge for near ly two years and filled that office faithfully and acceptably making his final report to the city council Tuesday night and tendered his resignation. We doubt not that Mr. Lee will always have a warm spot in his heart for the little city by the Falls nestled in the mountains where he spent many happy days. The departure o f Mr. and Mrs Lee is regretted by their many friends, yet in their going they bid them godspeed. In our short acquaintance with Mr. Lee we have found him to be a pleasant gentleman and trust that where ever fickle fo r tune may lead he will meet with success and his most sanguine hopes be realized. School Money to Loan Word has been received by W alter L. Tooze, Jr., o f Dallas, from the State Land Board, that there is now school money avail able for loaning purposes. This money is loaned out on approved real estate security at the rate o f 6% per annum. The note is given for one year with the privil ege of letting it run ten by keeping the interest p a i d promptly. The Board will not loan more than $2500 to any one person, and will not loan to exceed 3-4 o f the as sessed value o f the security o f fered, as shown by the last as sessment roll in the County A s sessor’s office.
