Monday night about 11 o ’ clock,
A. E. Sparks had occasien to go
down to his store, and on enter­
ing and turning on the light, he
heard some one at tne rear mak­
ing a hurried getaway.
Sparks gave the alarm, to which
a number of men in Bob March-
bank’s restaurant responded.
An automobile was standing
near and they turned its spot
light across the street, which re­
vealed a man crouching at the
back of the old Park hotel. On
being thus discovered he made a
bolt for it. Clyde Schock got a
gun from Bob Marchbank and
- fired a shot at the man, but evi­
dently failed to hit him. He is
described as being rather tall
and slim. Investigation showed
that entrance had been obtained
through the rear door o f the
bank building which leads to the
upstair rooms. The burglar had
gone through the window in the
hall way which opens on to the
roof o f the warehouse from
which he had ascended to the
roof of the store. There is a
cover door on the roof which
was not fastened, by means of
which the man had gotten in­
side and then into the store
through a small trap door in the
ceiling o f the toilet o f the rest
room in the gallery. Muddy
marks where his shoes had
scraped were made on the walls.
Evidently he had hardly begun
operations when Mr. Sparks en­
tered the store, for about all
that is found missing is two odd
gloves. In his hurry the man
left behind a nickle Hash light.
At first it was thought to be one
belonging to a respectable citi­
zen, who on being shown it,
thought it was his, which he had
left in Marchbank’s pool hall,
But on closer examination it
proved to be one of larger size.
This can be seen as Exhibit A
in the window of the East Clack­
amas Supply Co’s, store.
As our neighboring towns
have had visits o f this nature
during the winter, it is not sur-

Newspapers Help
College Expose Fraud
Sale o f low grade arsenical

Immense damage
by burning o f fruit and foliage
was caused by use o f low grade
arsenical mixtures in the begin­
ning. The station proved the
possibility o f better material,
manufacturers brought out a
better product, and growers w ho
must spray save enormous sums
every year as a result. Fear of
station discovery and newspaper
publicity gives the low-grade
dealer little chance to do busi­
ness in Oregon.

The Community Club held a
most interesting meeting Friday
evening at the Estacada hotel.
There was considerable discuss­
ion o f the Mt. Hood road project
and it was shown by Mr. Bart­
lett that if the Highway Com­
mission could be induced to lo­
cate the road bv way o f Estaca­
da, that there would be only a
few miles o f actual construction
work, on account o f the county
road building already arranged
for. The matter was referred
to J . W. Heed and E. W. Bart­
lett to be presented to the Com­
mission at tin* earliest date pos­
The principal address o f the
evening was given by Mr. E. E.
Favelle, editor o f the Western
Farmer o f Portland, w ho spoke
entertainingly on better live­
stock production. He was fol­
lowed by Coiaity Agent Scott
along similar lines. A piano so­
lo by Nova Smith, a duet by
Mrs. Wooster and Miss Helen
and Community singing led by
Miss Huth Dillon formed a very
entertaining musical program.
