HILL'S GASH STORE
' Your Money Goes Farther At Hill's'
It is everybody! priviledgeand just right to trade where
they thing they can do best. In Portland or any where
else, but it isn't doing your home merchant justice; not
giving him a chance to figure on an order and know if
ypii are doing better or not.
When you pick up a catalogue and look at the prices
they may look good, but, when you pay the freight and
get an inferior quality of goods at what it would cost
at home are you gaining anything by it.
I am running a cash business and am cutting prices as
cloie as possible. I would be glad to have you call and
get my prices on Coffee, Oat Mush, Baking Powder,
Salmon Tomatoes' Potatoes, Woodcock Flour, Diamoud
W Flour, Catsup, Peanut Butter, Canned Milks, Tobacco
Beans Rice, Lard, and Syrup.

Attorney at Law,
Strive to Merit Approval
Motor vehicle owners who
have not applied for their 1921
licenses are urged by the Sec. of
State to do so at once in order to
avoid congestion in the Depart
ment around the first of the
coming year and also that they
may avoid arrest by the peace
officers for failure to carry 1921
license plates after January first
The law will be rigidly enforced
by the inspectors of the depart
ment. There are now over
103,000 licensed cars in Oregon-
To this time about 9,000 appli
cations for 1920 licenses have
been received. The facilities of
the Depart merit are limited and
unless the work cnvolved in issu
ing licenses is distributed over a
reasonable period car owners
cannot expect to receive their
icense plates promptly. By
inlay they are improving their
chu K-ps for arrest for failure to
ha vp their 1921 licenses by Jan. 1
192) About October 1st blanks
were jnr warded to all the orvners
of nvii-.T vehicles for amilvine
for ll'-M licenses. If any of them
failed to receive blanks it has
been by reason of change of
residence not reported to the
office or failure of the mails.
Application blanks may be sec
ured of your chief of police or
marshal, ci y or town recorder
sheriff, county clerk and the
ice need motor vehicle dealer in
your locality, or by request oT

Redmond, Oregon Dec. 6th '20
Dear Mrs. Morrison,
We have arrived at our new
home, with the worst of luck;
the car was tight, was to be a
car with windows in each end;
loaded after dark and our stock
all smothered to death except
one mare and she was noarly
dead, she may get well but is in
a bad shape. Four horses, my
buggy mare was one of them and
twenty five head of cattle. Just
made me Bick, is a fright to see
them. Hope this finds you all
well. We have awful colds.
Ever your friend,
Mrs. James Brown.
