held with the view of starting- a
Farmers’ Commercial Club. A
dozen or two were present, and
after a desultory discussion of
matters of importance to our
comnunity, the meeting was
called to order by Prof. Williams
who is conducting the summer
business school. He then out­
lined the possibilities of a farm­
ers’ commercial body and upon
his suggestion a temporary chair­
man and secretary were elected.
H. C. Stephens was chosen for
the former position and R. C.
Deming for the latter.
A temporary committee of
three was then appointed by the
chair, on publicity, consisting of
Upton H. Gibbs chairman. Harry
Reid and A. Mills. A committ­
ee of three women Mesdames E.
E. Saling, The.) Ahlberg and H.
C. Stephens, was selected and ap­
pointed to look after the refresh­
ments at the next meeting,
which is called for Friday even­
ing the 25th. This U not only

Free ice cream and
cake will be served on this oc­
casion and everything done to
secure a good get-together time,
The N ews heartily endorses
the above object. It is one
which it has constantly advoca­
ted as essential to the interests
of the town and surrounding dis­
tricts. Many a good opportuni­
ty is lost from it being nobody’s
especial business to go ahead
A commercial club is for this
very purpose to take action when
needed. It should be composed
not only of the business men of
the town, but of the farmers of
the vicinity, for their and Esta-
cada’s interests and welfare are
mutual. Ar good live commercial
body can do much in developing
the resources of its town and
surrounding country, which will
not be done without such leader­
ship. A little effort, a little co­
operation on the part of all,
and a little expenditure right
now. may secure permanent ben­
efits to this place which will re­
pay the cost and effort a thou­

Estacada can boast of a num­
ber of fine gardens among which
the following have come especial­
ly under our observation. Two
of them are back of our resi­
dence, and belong respectively to
Mrs. A. G. Ames and P. M.
Wagner. Both are cultivated
intensively, notan inch being al­
lowed to go to waste, and both
producing abundantly. Another
noteworthy one is that of R. F.
Snyder at the northwest corner
of town. He has an acre filled
with ail kinds of vegetables that
will supply all his summer and
winter requirements, with a sur­
plus to spare. These gardens
show that Estacada soil with
good tillage and catje, will amply
repay labor and time expended
on it.
M ountain B erries
George Crook who lives in the
mountains, raises some especial­
ly fine stawberries. These come
into bearing about the time those
on the lower levels are through.
He has been sending several
crates of them to the East.Clack-
amas Supply Co. The crates are
made by Mr. Crook who splits the
sides out of a block with a draw­
ing knife. He ships them by
parcel post, which is a great con­
venience, as otherwise he would
have difficulty in marketing his
produce. But now at a slight ex-
• pense Uncle Sam does the work
for him.

The Clackamas County Banner
has bought out the Oregon City
Courier and will henceforth In*
known as the Banner-Courier.
While the Courier was¿democrat­
io the Banner-Courier will be in­
dependent. The Courier build­
ing has been acquired by the
Enterprise which will move into
it as soon as necessary changes
are made. This consolidation
and elimination of one paper,
will prove to the advantage of
all concerned, as three papers
overcrowded the field. Bro.
Hoss of the Banner will continue
as Editor in chief and be assisted
by Miss Alene Phillips as News
Editor and F. J. S. Tooze as Ag­
riculture Editor, with Howard
Christensen as Superintendent
in the mechanical department.
We extend heartiest congratula­
tions to them and predict a
bright future for the paper.
Oil For S treets

subscription to purchase oil to
put on the main road from the

let to the Multnomah county

great deal of that kind of work.
When completed it will be a
