Mr. Anderson came to town
Saturday to spend his money
with the home merchants. He
was forced to tie his team and
wagon on Zobrist St., while he
did his buying, owing to lack of
municipal hitching facilities, but
in the mean time had loaded on
a goodly supply of livestock feed.
After an absence of a half
hour, on returning to the wagon,
he discovered that sohie of the
towns horses and cows had made
a good, full, square meal from
his supply of feed, besides hav­
ing sampled everything from gro­
ceries to hardware.
“ Andy” was mad, and he had
every reason to be, but was rea­
sonable enough to suggest that
all livestock at large be kept on
the flat above town and not al­
lowed to wander about the busi­
ness district.
How much longer are the mer­
chants of Estacada going to al­
low this condition of affairs to
continue? They cannot blame
anyone but themselves if the dol­
lar that should be spent at home,
goes elsewhere.

and sell jewelry, but it remains
for Estacada’s purveyor of watch­

suited to the local trade.
Mr. Beckwith recently design­
ed and executed several different
styles of signet or initial "E. H.
S. ” rings, which are the envy of
the high school students.
