cers installed were:

Former Resident Dies
Mrs. John E. Schenk who lived
in Springwater, a number of
years and more recently in town,
died Saturday in Upland, Calif.,
where she had gone with her
husband last summer, for the
benefit of her health. The cause
of her death was acute asthma.
She as well as her husband, w as
a native of Switzerland, cominer
to this country and settling in
Wisconsin, when she was about
sixteen years old. She lived in
that state until nine years ago,
when her husband moved to
Springwater. She leaves six
children, four daughters and two
sons, Florence, Adeie, Frieda,
Emma, John and Eddie. The
last named daughter Emma, who
is the wife of Gordon M. Law­

Upland, to attend her mother’s

friends here, goes out to the be­
reaved family.
Community Club Sp< a ’cer
H. W. Morgan, the secretary
of the Sellwood board of trade,
will be the principal speaker at
the next meeting of the Commu­
nity Club on Friday, Jan. 30th.
He will tell of his experience in
establishing a flourishing busi­
ness of $25.000 per year, in five
years, on only a capital of *1,200.
This should appeal especially to
our business men, a large attend­
ance of whom it is desired es­
pecially to secure.
A Comfortable Hostelry
In these days of mammoth and
over ornate hotels, no doubt
many travelers who recall former
days, regret the passing of the
od tavern or inn. There was an
atmosphere about it, which the
present up-to-date hotel lacks,
in spite of all its numerous con­
veniences and able service. In
Portland there is an hotel of
moderate size and plain exterior
which suggests comfort and a
homelike atmosphere. This is
the Oregon Hotei on the corner
of Stark and Broadway. The
country traveler on entering its
hospitable doors does not feel
lost or bewildered. The lobby
is inviting in appearance with
plenty of capacious easy chairs,
into which the tired guest sinks
with an assurance of rest. An
obliging clerk at the desk is
on the alert to look after his re­
quirements and give him all ne­
cessary information. He finds
he can get a com for tattle room to
suit his purse. A fine grille pro­
vides most adequately for the
wants of the inner man. And
when his stay is concluded, he
leaves with the determination to
stop there on his return.
