Nearly Four Hundred and F ifty Mem

Celebration on Row River and Eat
Venison, Crawfish and Delicacies.
It is estimated that 450 Elks gathered
at Row River about three miles from
Cottage Grove last Sunday to celebrate
their annual high jinks. Extensive
plans had been mhde for the dinner to
be served. It is said that twelve deer
had been slaughtered by the Cottage
Grove lodge and fifty gallons o f craw
fish were cooked on this occusion. These
were the main dishes served but they
were reinforced and flanked by about
all the delicacies o f the season.
A band furnished good music,, some
of the musicians being Cottage Grove
boys. Sports o f all kinds were indulged
in. Foot racing and other athletic stunts
were pulled off. Monte Carlo gambling
devices are said to have been on the
ground to separate the unsuspecting Elk
from his wad o f “ high jin k s ’ ’ green
backs and in short it was just such a
program as would appeal to the average
professional or business man out for a
day of relaxation and pure joy. Bill
Hayward cleaned up $1,800,000 in
“ high jin k s’ ’ green backs and won the
$100 e lk ’s tooth.
The local committee o f arrangements
came in for much well-deserved praise
for their part on the program.

GRANGE FAIR TO BE THIEF STEALS FROM
Will Go A fter First Prize at County On* Family Loses Entire Week's Wash
ing; Suspect May Be
All to Help.
That the grange fair this year will be
the best in the history of the fair, is the
prediction of Superintendent McFar
land. To have that kind of a fair, Mr.
McFarland says that all must help, city
people, us well as farmers.
The producers are taking greater in
terest this year than thy did last year
and some splendid exhibits are already
in course o f preparation. Growers are
saving samples of all their produce as it
ripens. Mr. McFarlnnd nopes that the
exhibit from here, which will be taken
from the grange fair exhibits, will win
first prize at the county fair this year.
The other granges were scared lasl
year and Willakenzie Grange, which
carried o ff first prize, sent a represen
tative here to check up on the exhibits.
A number of Cottage Grove families
nave been victims o f clothes thieves
during the past few months. The Or
ville Spear family is the latest victim.
Every piece of clothing was removed
from the line one night last week.
Claude Cruson, who lives next door,
heard a suspicious noise. Other articles
had been missed during the past few
weeks and he laid in wait for the thief,
expecting to catch him as he came out
the front way. As the thief did not ap
pear he took a peep to see if he might
be mistaken and saw a man going over
the hack fence with an armful of
clothes. He is pretty certain that he
recognized the party and a prosecution
may follow if the goods are not re

something new and make it free. When
the Oregou building advertised that it
would give away Oregon Roses, the
structure was crowded and jammed to
the limit. There are roses and roses in
California, but none with the fame of
the Oregon Rose, so they came to see
and to curry away. When it was made
known that on u certain day loganberry
juice would be served to all comers, the
crowds came. Loganberry juice sounded
new and it was free to all a tasty
stream. The crowds literally swamped
the building uud in turn were swamped
with loganberry juice and liked the ex
perience. During Oregou Week, just
ended, the Coast counties— Tillamook,
Coos and Curry— told the hungry popu-
luce (everybody is persistently hungry
on the exposition grounds) that they
would give away cheese made in this in
comparable dairy regiou. Did the peo

that the hands thrust forward for a
sandwich seemed us numberless us the
sands of the seashore. And after they
had eaten one generous morsel they
went out the door and got into line for
another. They even went into the mov
ing picture theuter and listened for a
half hour to J. A. Ward and George M.
Hyland boosting the glories of the
Coast region—all because they were
told they might get another morsel.
During the afternoon, Mrs. D. L. Rood,
Miss Palmer, Mrs. Carl Albrecht, Miss
Francis France, and Mr. Ward hud all

o f cheese and crackers and tell them
they could get plenty of such cheese
in Tillamook, Coos and Curry.
On Saturday, the representatives of
Eustern Oregon— Lackey and McCully
— tendered sucks of popcorn. The city
papers had heralded the fact that pop
corn would be free at the Oregon build
ing this date— and the entire force is
still recovtiing from the experience of
handling that crowd. During the en
tire afternoon 15,000 of the half pound
sacks were handed out after 2 o ’clock.
The patent popper was worked over
time and then broke down or a number
of sacks given away might have reached
20,000. The people enjoyed the corn
and then enjoyed the crowding; they
also took time to enjoy the exhibits on
both floors, for the entire building was
filled to overflowing. Thus the effort
served its purpose; it brought extra
ordinary numbers to the building for u
glimpse, and many will return to see the
exhibits at their leisure and when the
crowds arc not so great. The people
are out to see ull there is to see; they
are in a holiday spirit, and they like the
little extra efforts. They feel that since
they expect to go to a certain building
they might as well go when there is
something special doing
building people feel that if they will
but come and get one glimpse they will
come agaig and they invariably do so.
