Wednesday before Christmas.
C. C. Yeater while visiting his
friend Arthur Haley, had with
him a couple of hounds with
which he proposed chasing coy
otes. We are all proud of our basket
ball teams. Although the boys
were not so fortunate as the girls
we feel that they will be success
ful in the future.
The Herald finished the work of
getting out the first number of
the Courier Monday. The sub
ject matter is well written and
the typographical work is equal
to the average.
Fred Huber has built a shed
on the side of the warehouse in
which to house his horses and rig
while waiting for the mail. This
will make it much pleasanter
than having them tied to a post
in the rain.

purchased the Poole place, has

and they will saw wood around
town. Something we have need
ed for some time.

children may take advantage of
our splendid school facilities.
Wouldn't it be a good thing
for some one to go into the rheu

better adapted to its culture than
this part of Polk county, it has
not yet been brought to public
W. W. McEldowney has been
recommended for postmaster at
Forest Grove by the Oregon del
egation in Congress. Mr. Mc
Eldowney has been an employee
of the post office at that place for
seven years and is eminently
qualified to fill the position with
honor to himself and satisfaction
to the people. We hope he re
ceives the appointment. He is
a nephew of S. A. McEldowney, of
Miss Grace Whitehonse, of the
Normal, was favored Saturday
and Sunday by a visit from her
father. Mr. Whitehouse is a
prominent lumberman of Tilla
mook City and reports things
looking up in that section of the
state. About 200 men are at
work on the Lytle road and it
begins to look as if the long talk
ed of railroad was to be a reality
in the near future. While the
Tillamook people have good roads
throughout the county those
leading into that country are al
most impassable at this season
of the year.
C. C. Lewis is again able to be

ing was as calm as a Quaker on
W. W. Stockton, of Sheridan,
came up Tuesday for a visit with
his nephew, D. M. Hampton. Mr.
Stockton is a prominent farmer

Mr. and Mrs. Will Jones have
gone to Lewisville to spend the
holidays with Mrs. Hannum, Mrs
Jones' mother. They will also
visit with Mrs. Hadley, a sister

strawberries and loganberries at
Alpine Farm. He has been doing
some experimenting with both,
as to adaptability of soil and cul
tivation. He is trying different
methods of prunnng on the
loganberry and his experiments
will be watched with interest by
those having this kind of fruit
Wouldn't it be a good idea for
our local creamery to add an ice
plant next spring and put in a
onmnlptp cold storaire outfit? It
wnnld be a creat saving to the
people of this part of the county,
for they could not only turn out
ice for their own use and that of
the town, but could get a large
patronage from the surrounding
country, for they could furnish
ice cheaper than it is now sold
in most of the smaller towns near
here. Besides this they could
operate an ice cream plant in
connection and furnish ice cream
to the confectioneries of several
towns. We could then have the
satisfaction of knowing that the
ice cream we ate would be home
made and the money spent for
it would be helping build up our

arrange for a Christmas tree for
the Sunday school children. All
such things should be encourag
