FREDRICK SONS HOLD
FAMILY REUNION HERE
Sunday, the Fredricksons gathered
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar
Fredrickson, 311 F street for a
family reunion. The day was spent
in visiting. The table was set under
the trees on the lawn and at 1:30,
22 people sat down to dinner.
Those coming to attend the re
union were; Mr. and Mrs. Gust Fred
rickson, Mr. and Mrs. Gordy Fred
rickson, Hamer and Dorothy Fred
rickson, Aurora; Mr. and Mrs. R. L.
Miller, Hubbard; Mr. and Mrs. Elmer
Fredrickson, Suver; Mr. and Mrs.
Ross Chamberlain aid family, Suver.
Gust Fredrickson moved his family
from El Campo, Texas, to Oregon,
in 1902. For a short time he settled
at Drain, from there he moved to
tho large farm south of Momnouth,
known as the Helmick place. After
living there for five years they
moved on a farm five miles east ot
Hubbard, where they are now living.
Salem The Oregon Growers' Co
rporative aasociation has advanced the
price of prunes one-half cent on 30-

grades, above the opening prices. The
price as announced is as follows for
prunes packed in 25 pound boxes,

Oregim prunes have been sold in
more markets this year than ever be
fore, according to officials of the as
sociation, and it is their belief that
this wlil help maternally to dspose of
this crop as well as future crops.
Great Britain, Central Europe, Cana
da and domestic markets have re
sponded with an eagerness for the
1922 pack that has been surprising.
The first payment of two cents per
pound on gooseberries has been made
to the members of the Oregon Grow
ers' Cooperative association in the
Willamette valley, according to a
statement issued recently. This will
be followed by other payments and
the closing of the pool as soon as the
shipments of the canned fruit is com
pleted. Strawberry growers are also being
advanced a like amount.
Cherries are now moving faster.
The association expects to move two
cars of black cherries before the end
of the week. Several cars have been
shipped from The Dalles- to Chicago
and New York markets.
The loganberry harvest is on with
practically every yard busily caring
for the fruit. Growers state that a
considerable tonnage will be lost on
account of the hot dry weather of the
last few days. The crop is suffering
from a lack of rain and the fruit
which usually ripens toward the end
of the season will not amount to
much according to growers.
The cherry and loganberry crops
will come together this year and
growers who have not engaged their
labor report considerable alarm over
the scarcity of help.
A demonstration was given on the
streets here Wednesday night by II.
A. Long of Portland with an Ameri
can La France Ford triple combina
tion hose, chemical and pumper. Tho
outfit consists of a ton Ford chassis,
a 40 gallon chemical tank, and a pump
which will deliver 250 gallons of
water a minute at 120 pounds pres
aure. Mr. Long was here for the purpose
of getting the city council sufficient
ly interested in the outfit to place an
order for it. His exhibit was made
with the assistance of Fire Chief
Wood, and attracted a considerable
attention. A denionstrtion was also
given later in the evening in the north
part of town.

WALTER PIERCE SPEAKS
AT RICKREALL PICNIC
The feature of the 4th of July
picnic at the Rickreall park under the
auapices of the Monmoutn Grange
was an address by Walter Pierce,
democratfe candidate for governor.
Like the basket lunch which had been
provided it was a "feast" but for the
soul rather than the body, but as the
body had been very amply cared for
in a sumptuous repast, the ration
balance was there.
Mr. Pierce confined his talk to
historical events. He has the gift
of Dortravinc them well and is evi
dently a student of American history,
j in the estimation of local people who
attended the gathering.
As a climax to the day, there was
a ball game with married and single
men as opponents, with wives and
sweethearts as the rooters. The of
ficial score, as announced at the
close of the contset, gave the victory
to the benedicts by a 12 to 11 score.

Fire destroyed the residence of
J. P. Warriner, located just to the
west of the training school building
on C street last Sunday afternoon,
and caused a thrill of excitement to
the owners of adjoining property.
Starting on the second floor, and be
lieved to have been due to a defective
flue, the top of the building was a
mass of flames before a fire alarm
was turned in. Fanned by a strong
breeze the fire gained much headway
before the fire department put in
appearance. The household goods on
the first floor were largely removed
but nothing was saved from the
upstairs. Mr. Warriner was in the
house alone at the time the fire broke
out. Some time before, he had
burned some papers which had ac
cumulated in the heating stove and
the presumption is that the fire or
iginated from this source.
The fire burned fiercely, and while
the fire department kept several
streams of water turned on it for
some time, all of the upper story
was burned and the lower floor was
left a complete wreck.
Mr. Warriner carried an insurance
of $1500 on the building and $1000 on
the household goods.
It is said that a cherry tree estab
lished George Washington's reputa
tion for veracity. During the fire,
a cherry tree, or rather, three of
'em, saved George Carbary's attrac
tive bungalow from being severely
scorched or gutted. The Carbray
residence adjoins the Warriner
property on the west. Close to th
house are three large cherry trees
and these formed an effective fire
guard, although it was necessary to
keep the Carbray roof saturated witX
