Now that arrangements are being
made to hold a “ Spelling Bee’ ’
among the various schools in Clack­
amas Countv, it might not be amiss
for the pupils to study their lessons
aloud at home, for the benefit of the
parents, for the majority of us
could not stand up against a sixth
grade class, in the average “ bee” .
There was a time when “ spelling
bees” were a popular form of amuse­
ment among the older folks and
such an affair would ptove an in­
structive, interesting and mighty
amusing entertainment now.
The County Court are now going
after the automobile ttneks, with
the intention of limiting their loads,
as carried over the county’ s high­
ways. This is a wise move, for an
auto truck, with the suction caused
bv its corrugated rubber tires, at
high speed, can do more harm to a
good road than a dozen farm wagons
with brakes set. As regards pay
tug taxes for the upkeep of roads,
it is doubtful if any of the auto
truck owners doiug business thru-
out the county, contribute much of
anything. Incidentally this move
probablv will not make the P. R. L.
& P. Co. overly angry, for the
auto truck is hurting their business
to some extent and as the railway
company are the county’s biggest
tax payee, it deserves some protec­
A New Years Resolution:- Re­
solved that during 1915 I will try
to patronize mv home merchants
more, that I will work for and in
unison with my neighbors and that
I will sheath my hammer and stop

The recent formation of the
Cattlemen’ s Union in Garfield, is in
in keeping with the tendency of the
times and indicates conclusively
that there is a strongly felt netd for
cooperation among the farmers of
this community. The only wav to
make a good profit on that which
vou have to sell, is to raise first
class produce and cooperate in both
the growing and marketing.
Clackamas County will spend
$232,000 for roads in 1913. The
spending of this money lies in the
hands of the thrte members of the
County Court. These men do not
claim to be expert road builders
and consequently believe that the
salary now paid to the County Road
Engineer, Mr. Hobson, is necessary.
They are right and the tax pavers
should uphold them No private
individuals or corporations would
think of spending over a quarter
million dollars, without co»nj>etent
advice and no more should a county.
