One of the beet and tiwt ap-
of our readers to haye us giye thera
a few words as to the new fad of
burnt wood. While in Portland
recently we entered ft wholesale
house and the first thing which
greted ue was the very disagree
able smell of burning wood and of
course we asked the reason why,
but before the clerk had time to
answer we noticed a number of
girls sitting along at a bench and
on close observation we noticed
that they were slowly following
I'Jrawing dfnign with a red hot , Hecial from Mouiuuatb.
needle that was kept at while heat
by beini' connected with the city
gas system. These girls are filling
the demand for the great burnt
wood craze. You can find these
goods at Wagoner's along with an
itpmense stock of other goods.

husbanl, Mr. and Mrs. W. C.
Meuil ". niter spending the sum
mer at Ynt.a, California, decided
to return to their home at Mon
mouth. After reaching Montague
by motor our party soon found
thomstlvi -1 n board the train and
heading homeward. Observing the
different passengers their attention
was in eonie strange way attracted
towa:d an elderly couple occupy
ing seats in the forward part of
the car, and after several hours'
travel the luly in conversation
with another 'nmr wns heard- to
mention '"Monmouth." The natu
ral love of home which we all
possess to some extent will ofteii
lead us into friendly communica
tion with entire strangers who
seem strangers no longer when
wo find they too have ties even
neighbors to our own. Mrs
Meador, roused by some peculiar
instinct, concluded to investigate

than a sister u! her mother's, who
with her husband, P. O. Barclay,
were even then on their way from
,San Bernardino, where they had
been visiting Mr?. Coals' oldest
daughters to spend as much time
as possible with r'lntivs in Ore
gon. Needless to "state that a
genuine family reunion took place
right there when the two sisters
clasped hands again utter a separa
tion of fifty years, Mrs. Coats hav

in 1S."2, her sister then being a
Mr. and Mrs. ltarclay spent a
few weeks t Ashland and are now
enjoying their stay at Monmouth.
They are highly pleaaed with the
climate of Oregon and say Iowa
blizzards and frosts compare un
favorably with even our rains.
Mrs. Barclay has the distinction
of being t he oldest living person
bom in Iowa. She was born in
Octoler 6U 1833, at Burlington
and has since made that state her
home. Both she and her husband
are fast making many friends here

Eugene, the best football player in
his position in the United States.
It might be of interest to further
add that Rockwell, of Yale, and
Hammond, of West Point, are two
Oregon boys distinguishing them
selves 'on the gridiron.
