The meeting Monday evening,
for the election of a school direct­
or and clerk, was largely attend­
ed, there being considerably over
a hundred present. B. H. Finch
the retiring director, presided
and called the meeting to order.
Only two names were put up in
nomination, these being F. E.
Robley and W. H. Kandel. Be­
fore the vote was tken, the min­
utes of the previous meeting and
the financial statement were
read. F. J. Harkenreider rose
to discuss the latter, but it was
mo^ed that the discusiion be
postponed until after the elec­
tions. F. E. Ro^'ey received an
overwhelming majority, the vote
standing 103 to 13 in his favor.
Mrs. Susie Sarver the present
incumbent was nominated and
B. F. Bullard. The vote was
given in her favor, being 72 to 24.
It was then moved and carried
that she should receive $100 in­
stead of $50 for her services
which was a fitting tribute to her
faithfulness in transacting her
The N ews would suggest that
the financial statement be pub­
lished and let the people have a
chance to study it, and ascertain
its provisions, which it is impos­
sible to do when merely read in
public. Then a special meeting
can be called for its considera­
A Proof of Ability
Government hunter, A. G.
Ames, has received a remarka­
ble testimony to his ability as a
cougar hunter. A telegram came
Monday to him to go to Repub­
lic, Ferry Co., Wash., where the
sheepmen are suffering from
raids on their flocks by cougars.
Mr. Ames was directed to take
his dogs with him and left Tues­
day. It will take him about
three days to reach his destina­
tion, as he has to go by way of
Canada. His record shows that
he gets more cougars than ad
the other government hunters
combined in the states of Ore­
gon, Washington and Idaho.

The Estacada Baseball club
clashed with a .snappy aggrega­
tion from Oregon City, last Sun­
day on the High School diamond
and met defeat by 6 to 1. Errors
on the part of Estacada’s short­
stop, 2nd and 3rd basemen were
responsible for 3 of Oregon City’s
scores, while the other 3 were
earned by good stick work and
base running.
The game was not marked by
any brilliant plays, altho Smith
and Douglas connected for two
heavy hits. From the grand
stand, the game was rather irk­
some due to the argumentative
ability of two Estacada players.
This will undoubtedly be^dispens-
ed with in the future as the club
has elected Ed Douglas for cap­
tain and given him entire control
of the team, while in the fieid.
The club will give a dance Sat­
urday night, June 21st, at the
pavilion, the proceeds to go to
finance the club. T h e% “owl”
says you better come out, shake
a few dances and give the boys a
boost. It is hoped a match will*
be arranged with a Portland
team for Sunday.
Later: A game will be played
with the Kirkpatrick Maroons.
Cupid Takes a Hand
The closing of the Tracy school
in the Garfield district, last week
brought to light a little romance.
Miss Elizabeth Mikulecky was
the young lady employed to teach
the young idea how to shoot, and
it seems that “Cupid” mixed up
in the transrction. Fcr on May
10, 1919, at Hillsboro, Or., Miss
Mikulecky was married to Verle
J. Hillyard,. bv Judge Goodwin.
The bride is the daughter of
Mrs. Anna Mikulecky of this city
where she has resided for several
years. She was a graduate of the
Estacada High School of last
year and very popular among her
associated. The groom is the son
of Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Hillyard
of Gresham and manager of the
Hillyard & Welch sawmill in
Lower Garfield.
tions are now in order and best
wishes for a long and happy mar­
ried life for them.
Mrs. H. D. Chambers and her
daughters. Misses Myla and Inez
accompanied by Mr. Peier Wfins-
heim drove out from Portland,
Sunday to the ranch of Mr. and
Mrs. C. A. Jacques of Lower
Garfi si I. They kindly called for
the editor and his wife, and took
them up with them. A most en­
joyable day was spent in viewing
this beautiful place and partak­
ing of the bounteous hospitality
of Mr. and Mrs. Jacques, The
outlook from their porch is some­
thing to remember. Looking a-
cross the valley westward, one
sees a receding panotama of
fields and hills mounting in tiers
back of each other, forming as it
were, the seats of a vast amphi­
The variety in the
shades of green which predomin­
ated, toned down by the greys of
the skies, proved most fascinat­
ing and restful. It formed a
✓ subject worthy of the brush of a
Corot or a Turner. We were
glad to note that the prospects
for a good apple crop are excel­
lent, which we hope will materi­
alize. Both Mr. and Mrs. Jac­
ques have spent years of labori­
ous work in bringing their ranch
into shape and deserve financial
returns of a substantial kind.
The bungalow with its stone wall
enclosed garden, is most artistic,
while its living room with capa­
cious fireplace, invites the fortu­
nate guest to take solid comfort
before its blazing logs. As we
sat there watching the flames
leaping up the chimney, we were
reminded of that classic gem,
“ Tibi splendet focus,” “ for thee
the hearthfire shines,” as the fit­
ting symbol of a warm hearted
Mrs. P. M. Wagner brought
our better half yesterday, a fine
portion of strawberries. They
wet e of the Oregon variety and
exceedingly large, many rnearur-
ing five or more inches in circum­
ference. As we demolished our
share, we thought of the saying,
“ No doubt God could have made
a better berry but He never did.”
The following letter from May­
or Bartlett will be read with in­
terest. It indicates that he is
enjoying himself and taking his
“otium cum aut sine dignitate, ”
the deponent sayeth not which.
But to get the full benefit of his
vacation we would suggest the
latter course, though with limi­

Dear Friend Gibbs:
In our mail we received your
June 5th issue and enjoyed the
home news.
We had a fine trip and made
nearly record time. Drove to 11
miles south of Roseburg and
made camp about dark, the first
day. Tuesday and Wednesday
we drove a little slower and
Thursday made fine time and
drove into Oakland Thursday
evening aliout 9:30. The Sparks’
and Peszneckers remained there.
Friday morning we crossed over
to San Francisco and drove south
to Palo Alto and visited there
until about 3 in the afternoon
and then we were off south
again. Camped at the celebrat­
ed Pas Robles Springs Friday
night, and Saturday afternoon
at 4:30 we drove up to Mrs. B.’s
sister’s in Los Angeles and our
machine showed 1200 miles from •
Estacada to Los Angeles.
We drove through the famous
grape and fruit section south of
San Jose and for miles before
entering Los Angeles we travel­
ed along the ocean shore. The
road was all pavement and the
scenery beautiful.
We are now in the mountains
at an elevation of 0200 feet
alnive sea level and about eight
miles from the old Sante Fe
We are all well and enjoying
every moment.
With hest regards to Mrs. G.
Yours truly,
E. W. Bartlett.
