Other Need of our Town.
Kiutoh Estekpkihb: There are
many olhen, but prominent among
them ia a good reading and recrea
tion room for the young men of the
town. There are many who feel
this need keenly and would appre
ciate any prevision of thia char
acter. They deaire a waiting place
other than the once preeently open
AIo, a ery prominent need is a
place where mothers with little
children, often babies needing at
tention, who have just come in
from the country may go to rest
Theae mothers do not care to sit
around the stores while the hus
bands do busiuess around the town.
If they had a place of this kind,
a cosy little room fitted up, thither
they would resort, and, remember
ing their needs, would do all the
purchasing tbey came in from the
country to do, instead of wearily
dragging themselves and children
around town, forgetting the things
they intended to buy. The mer
chants of this town could very
easily supply this felt want. Why
not do this right wvr?

ganger to Portland Monday on her
way to Northport, Wash., where
she will teach this winter.

Help the Contest,
KnMial from Parker.
The eleventh correspondents'
contest is sounding ita commence
ment. The participants arrayed
in mental armor proceed to their
respective .positions, while, like
troops drawn up in battle; we await
the final charge. Along out dis
tant horizon the outlines of the cov
eted goal are dimly discernible.
With the right hand we grasp the
pen,-our sword.-and while we ex
ert our mental forces in our en
deavor to obtain a prosperous ter
mination of our efforts, we realize
that our eventual success will de
pend upon the kind assistance that
may be accorded by our friends.
We need generous support of each
and every individual in oir county
to aid us in our strenuous rfforls to
earn the generous prizes that the
editor has so kindly offered, and to
perpetuate the interest manifested
by ou' subscribers, readers ana!
We want each individual reader
to manifest an interest in this con
test and encourage the efforts of
the correspondents. We want an
industrious, energetic represents-
tive from each section of our coun

in this contest, and to maintain it
till the close.
We want the Estekpbire to visit
every home in the county, and we
earnestly believe that when once
its merits are tested it will ever
continue a welcome visitor at, the
Then let us stimulate our united
efforts to make the ensuing contest
more eminently successful than
any of its predecessors.
X Tribute to the Willamette.
0, river, calm and beautiful.
My thoughts are still of thee.
Flow onward through the woods
Flow onward to the sea!
Though clouds above thee darkly
Aud dreary be the day,
Though all as peaceful seemeet
As when the sunbeams play.
Whene'er the evening shadows fall
Upon thy waters clear,
All undisturbed thou fiowest on;
A restful peace is near.
Across the3 moved the Indian bark
In days long passed away;
The dusky Indian warrior
Loved by thy banks to stay,
And charmed by Vippling water
there. He dreamed of battles won,
Of glory, and of yictory,
Until the day was done.
Willamette river beautiful,
Go on thy winding way,
Thy Bparkling waters still will
By moonlight or by day.
The bard his tribute still will pay,
Thy name will ever be
Aye kved by all in Oregon,
vf illamette--hail to thee!
