To Sell
Public Auction?
The exact date of the big pub­
lic auction to be held in Estacada,
under the auspices of the Estaca­
da Clearing House, will be an­
nounced next week, probably oc-
curing on Saturday, March 2nd
or the Saturday following.
Colonel W. S. Wood of Vancou­
ver, o f state-wide reputation as
an auctioneer, has agreed to con­
duct the sale, but wants to know
exactly the date set.
The Clearing House can not set
this date until the public furnish­
es us a list of the livestock or ar­
ticles which they wish to sell. A
list o f thousands of articles is
wanted, so that the advance ad­
vertising throughout the county
will attract buyers from all dis­
We already have listed horses,
cows, pigs, wagons and many
household and farm articles—but
we want ten times as much more.
CALL at the Clearing House
and tell us what you will have to
sell at this public auction.
DO IT RIGH T N O W , for it
cant be delayed!
Colonel Wood writes— “ You
get the crowd and the goods and
I'll do the rest." And if he con­
ducts it as he did the C. M. Da­
vis auction in Springwater last
Spring,—we believe him. He al­
so says— “ Get some of the ladies
organizations to serve a cafeteria
lunch, as they can make some
easy money. I’ ll donate 5% of
my profits on the day, to the la­
dies, the Red Cross or any char­
ity .”
Parties now having goods for
sale at the Clearing House are
asked to advise us if they are
wiling that same be sold at auc­
tion, if not sold sooner.
The display in the Clearing
House now comprises some of
the best bargains in implements,
stoves, ranges, carpets, separa­
tors, furniture, etc. ever seen in
this community, with John Page,
the new manager, keeping the
store open during regular busi­
ness hours.
We want more articles for sale
and want you to examine our
bargains before purchasing new

E. H. S.
Contributed by Estacada High School
A basket ball game between
E. H. S. and Springwater was
played Wednesday night.
It was an exciting game and
even if E. H. S. did not win,
they made Springwater hustle
around pretty fast. Albert Lich-
thorn made himself famous by
shooting a large number o f bas­
Saturday evening, February
2nd, E. H. S. was going to play a
game of basket ball with San^y
high school, but owing to the ab­
sence of several members of the
latter team, were unable to play;
so Estacada played with the San­
dy town team.
Most of the
Sandy fellows were strong, stal­
wart men, thus rendering it im­
possible for E. H. S. to win.
The score was 16 to 30.
The E. H. S. girls’ basket ball
team also went to Sandy with
the intention of playing with the
Sandy high school girls, but for
some unknown reason Sandy re-
fused to play.
The m i d - t e r m examinations
were held Wednesday, Thursday,
and Friday of last week. All
those getting an average o f 95%
in deportment and 90% in their
studies were denied the privilege
of taking them. Many of the
Freshmen and Sophomores could
be seen going to class with brave
expressions on their faces, but
rather weak “ kneed” . However,
the majority passed the examin­
ations with honor as they were
not very hard.

Morris Cahill of Eagle Creek,
now stationed at Ft. Seward,
Alaska with Company A of the
14th Infantry, acknowledges re­
ceipt of the “ home paper” and
tells about how welcome it is;
sends regards to all friends, and
reports the climate there varying
in a few hours from 40 degrees
above to 15 degrees below zero.
But he admits life at an army
fort is monotonous and only wish­
es he could be transferred “ across
the pond.”
