    Song W ith Every Ford
The Estaeada Garage, which last
week sold Ford touring cars to
Carl Clark of Barton and Peter
Ruhl of George, has formed a
male quartette, consisting of Jim
Melton, Guy Drill, R. 0 . Morri­
son and J. W. Reed.
None of the quartette suppos­
ed the others could sing, but
Guy got started on a gospel hymn
one morning and before it was
finished, the entire crew of the
garage were singing and making
some pretty good machine-shop
harmony at that, although J. W.
didn’t know the words of the
hy mn.
They are now>practising melo­
dies and popular ballads to the
accompaniment of vulcanizers,
cash registers and other noisy
equipment of the shop.
Already a fair sized crowd of
kids and a few grown-ups gather
around to listen enraptured to
their rendition of that popular
little ballad entitled — “She
Might Have Paid the Mortgage
If She Hadn’t Bought A Ford.”
The Furtive Look.
H ere Is som ething worth while for
bachelors to consider.
A Boston wom an says she can detect
a bachelor as far as she can see him.
She alw ays knows a bachelor by his
furtive look. T h e fu rtiv e look, she ex­
plains, is som ething akin to th a t of a
hunted anim al, alw ays ou the watjcb
for sn a re s and pitfalls. Of course this
muy apply only to Boston bachelors,
but it would be well for all other sin­
gle u n fo rtu n a te s to ta k e u good look
a t them selves in the m irror a n d tind
t h a t telltale look. If they do th ere is
an easy way to efface it.—Cleveland
P lain Dealer.
Why a Horse Rolls.
Horses a re fond of rolling ou the
ground, and no unimul more thorough­
ly shakes itself th an they do. After
a roll they give themselves a shake
or tw o to remove any th in g adhering
to the coat. The habit is of much
service to horses living in open plains.
On being turn» i loose a t the end of a
journey an Arab horse m ils in the
sand, which acts as blotting paper, ab­
sorbing exudations from the body. A
shake removes the sand, und the coat
soon dries. Cavalrymen in hot climates
sometimes put sand ou their horses as
the simplest and quickest way of drying
No Longer a Child.
" Is m a m m a ’s sw’eet little boy ready

“Oh, m aw , put the soft pedal on th a t
Btuff, will you? When a fellow's six
years old it's time to take him out of
th e k in d erg arten class. I'll take my
splash when I’ve had my smoke.” —

The State H ighw ay Commlaslon has
adopted the following policy with re­
gard to road surveys:
W henever any County shall m ake
application to the Commission se ttin g
forth a desire to do construction work
on post roads, forest roads or any
other state highw ay w ithin Its limits,
the Commission will a u th o rise a def­
inite location
grades and alignm ents. The expense
of sueh surveys will be paid for from
the state funds of the Commission.
T heir P resent Condition
I am not seeking re-election — preferring to pass on the
responsibilities and troubles.
I believe in and have been working for a business admin­
istration of the City of Estaeada and the ultimate
doing away of the city's indebtedness.
We cannot conceive how a farm er
can oppose the p resen t good roads
m ovem ent when it m eans so much to
him to have good roads to take his
products to the m arket. The S ta te
of Oregon Is endeavoring to bring
about a com prehensive system of road
building, which It should have dons
years ago. but. strange to relata, ob­
jection la raised by farmers, who will
be the most benefited by a system of
hard surU ced tru n k roads.
Tillamook County for an illustration
with a hard surfaced highw ay through
the county. The farm ers would use
It 12 m onths of the year and the s u m ­
m er auto travel th re e m onths of tbs
year.— Tillamook Headlight.
My only reason for accepting the nomination for re-election,
is to see the above important improvements inaugurated.
My' Opponent - Will Kaake
will make a first-class Councilman, being a resident
taxpayer for many years and if he will enforce a
Herd-law (if the majority want one), and will favor
New Sidewalks where needed I advise your voting
for him.
