up tbe main street of that thriving
tov 'and into the pavilion contain
ing 'the superb exhibits of the annual
agricultural fair the fair that has
made Falls Citv famous. The ''Dal
las "-tagged aggregation was thereto
boost and admire, and they saw-
plenty to admire and sullicient to
boost. The junket, which was suc
cessfully in every way and highly
enjoyable, was taken at the instance
of ti e Dallas Commercial club to
show the proper spirit' of neighbor-
liness and to render due encourage
ment of all such enterprises in the
interest of I'olk county. Although
but little time had been given for
preparation, practically every bus
iness house in Dallas was represented
and many ot the delegates were ac
companied by their wives, and after
inspecting the displays they took
sightseeing trips about Falls City, or
visited mends, and enjoyed the out
ing immensely. . Little and big, old
and young, everybody who went from
here wore a large badge bearing the
word "Dallas" in prominent letters
and they were the most conspicuous
objects on the streets of the fair
The honor of being the oldest Dal
las booster on the trip was grace
fully borne by the venerable justice
of the peace, II. Ilolinan, whose 1
years rest lightly upon his shoulders.
That is, according to A. . K. Sny

EX-EDITOR J. C HAYTER WILL
Firjt Exclusive .Establishment -.of
Kind In County To Be Complete
and Up to the Minute. ,4. . .
The Observer made no mistake
fthen it -predicted that J. C. llayter,
the retiring editor of this newspaper,
would ' not be contented to remain,
out of active business for any great
length'of time. The people of Dal
las and surrounding country will be
pleased to learii that he is naking
preparations to open a first-class
bOok and stationery store in this city.
The store will be the first of its kind
to be opened in Dallas and will be
the only exclusive book and station
ery establishment in Polk county.
The new book store will occupy a
room in tbe Wilson building on Main
street. -. Miss Robertson, the present
tenant will move her millinery store
to the room recently vacated by the
Oregon Power Company on Mill street
where she will fit up one of the neat
est millinery stores in the Willam
To Be Ready Soon.
When asked about his plans this
morning, Mr. HayteV said to an Ob
server reporter: '"Yesr it is true
that I am preparing to open a book
and stationery store in Dallas on or
about November 1. A room in the
Wilson building has been leased for
that purpose and the stock will be
installed as soon as carpenters can
get the place in readiness. 'Special
shelving and display counters will
have to be constructed, and a mod
ern plate glass front installed. This
will require a little time, although
orders have been given to rush the
work as rapidly as possible. It is
my intention to equip the building
with the very latest furniture and
fixtures in order that the store may
be made one of the neatest and most
attractive of its kind in Western
Book Business Appeals.
"I ltelieve an exclusive book and
stationery store will prove a popular
addition to Dallas' already credit
able list of mercantile establish
ments," continued Mr. llayter, "and
tor that ' reason I am investing a
considerable amount of money in The
business. The book business has
long apiealed to me. Several years
ago, when I found that steadily in
creasing deafness would eventually
eoniicI me to give up active news
paNr work, I decided that when it
Itecaine necessary for me to cease
my long association with presses and
ty)K', I Mould o-n a book store in
some live Oregon town. I need not
add .that I know of no interior town
with a brighter future than Dallas,
and it is here that I shall continue to
make my home.
"I feel confident that an exclu
sive book and stationery store will
fill a long-felt want in Dallas and
that the reading public will welcome
an establishment of this kind. In
expressing this belief, I would not be
understood as desiring to cast any re
flection on the merchants who have
carried these lines in connection with
their other goods. The fact is, these
merchants have carried small and
broken lira-s of book and stationery
merely for the accommodation of
their customers, and I am finding
them more than willing to turn overj
the greater portions of these lines j
to the new bok store.
