Dr. E. J. Thompson of Inde

couple last week. This probably
in the record for Oregon. The
doctor is only G7 years old and
is good for a number of weddings
yet. Besides a number of
couples married iu Minnesota
while preaching and teaching
there, he has tied the knot for
couples in Independence, Dallas,
Corvallis, Albany, Salem, Wood

Portland, Oregon. All the

Mr. Clements, having charge
of the rural deliveries in the
Northwest was here last week
and took under consideration
the matter of extending thel
Parker route by having the car
rier start from Independence
instead . of Parker. There has
been a petition, also a remon-l
stance in favor of extending the
route by making Independence
the starting point instead of
Parker. In order to get at the
the real sentiment of the patrons,
Mr. Clements decided to write
each one a personol letter, ask
ing each to state his preference.
There should be no misunder
standing in making reply to Mr.
Clements. It is not a question of
discontinuing the JParker route
but merely enlarging it. It a I
change is made if will not mean
that anyone now on the Parker
line is dropped but that all
will be served just as they
' are served bv the Parker

by way of Independence. By
