Coming Events
Cast Shadows Before
“ All the world loves a lover,”
and we have received a commu­
nication from an unknown cor­
respondent in respect to a young
man in the vicinity of Dodge,
who seems to have been hard
hit by Cupid’s dart. We ^recall
our youthful escapades and for­
bear from revealing that which
was meant to be kept private.
We tender our best wishes to
him and suggest that if he finds
it difficult to express the thoughts
which surge up in him, he will
find Ella Wheeler Wilcox’s “ Po­
ems of Passion” a valuable aid.
After having: occupied, for
some years its quarters on Broad­
way street, the E astern C lack ­
amas N ews will begin moving
tomorrow, to the building which
has been fitted up for it, at the
corner of 2nd and Zobrist streets,
opposite the Estacada Feed Co. ’s
store. There it will have larger
office room, better lighted and
more convenient for the arrange­
ment of its furniture and equip­
ment, with the presses standing
on a concrete base. Another im­
provement is the installation of
electric power to run the presses,
each of which will have its indi­
vidual motor. We are still hop­
ing that before the year runs out,
we shall be able to put in a six
column folio press which will
give amore convenient shaped pa­
per, affording larger news space
tn in at present. We bespeak
the indulgence of our readers un­
til we get settled, as for the next
week or two the paper may be
belated, and the matter hastily
made up.
“Bringing Up of Father”
Who has not been amused by
the cartoons which have been
running for some years in the
Oregon Journal and other papers
entitled “ Bringing Up of Fath­
er” ? Poor old Jiggs continually
puting his foot in it, and being
battered up by his vixem of a
wife, and yet always coming up
smiling, has won universal sym­
pathy, while his worser half has
made herslf a laughing Stock for
her absurd pretensions. Manager
Linn informs us that he has ob­
tained three runs depicting this
series, which will be commenced
on Thursday, February 3, and
one will be run each month un­
til concluded.
Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Bartlett
went to Portland Monday, to ob­
serve the twenty seventh anni­
versary of their marriage. No
doubt the time on looking back
se?rrs short and the events of i7
y?ars ago but as yesterday.
With two grown children we 1
settled in life, and two grand­
children, they may consider their
marriage has had auspicious re­
sults. Here’s hoping that sur­
rounded by grandchild en and
great grandchildren they may
celebrate their golden wedding.
Little Hikers
Velma and Laura Keisecher,
aged 10 and 9 years respectively,
the little daughters of Mr, and
Mrs. George Keisecher of Fii5
wood, walked on New Year’s
day to Eagle Creek, a distance
of ten miles, in order to visit
their uncle and aunt, Mr. and
M rs. Herman Ballou. T h i s
would have been a respectable
hike for grown ups.
A Growing Institution
The Lovelace hospital is dem­
onstrating its need and provirg
its utility. The local physicians
find it convenient as well as resi­
dents who require special care in
sickness. Mrs. Lovelace gives
each patient her personal care.

chants and see how prices have
The failure of the Morris to d
firm, of Pordand, may not
result so disastrously to the
creditors as at first reported.
Each day the v. lue of the assets
increases, and were it not for
t le excessive costs of the receiv­
ership and wind up. 100 cents on
the dollar might be paid.
Mrs. A. O. Whitcomb Dead
Stricken with heart trouble
while preparing breakfast at her
home on Council Crest last Fri­
day morning, Mrs. Arthur O.
Whitcomb was taken to a local
hospital, where she died Satur­
day afternoon. Mrs. Whitcomb
was the mother of of Walter I).
Whitcomb of the Portland ac­
countancy firm of Whitfield &
Whitcomb, and of Mrs. Walter
H. Nugent, wife of the pastor of
the Central Presbyterian church.
Funeral services were held
Monday at 1 o’clock in the fun­
eral conservatory chapel of the
East Side Funeral directors, 414
East Alder street, Portland.
Mrs. Whitcomb came to Ore­
gon with her husband about 12
years ago from Chicago. She
lived on a fruit ranch near Esta­
cada for many years and during
the war moved to Palo Alto,
Cal., her husband being station­
ed at Camp Fremont, where he
was chief clerk. She was C>1
years old and a member of the
First Congregational church, in
the affairs of which she had
been active.
Community Club Meeting
The regular monthly meeting
of the Community club will be
held in the high school auditori­
um on Friday evening. As the
original plan of combining it
with the high school debate has
been abandoned, a program will
be given instead by the pupils
and talks given on school and
community co-operation. The
evening promises to be both en­
tertaining and instructive. Let
there be as good an attendance
as that of last month.
Mr. and Mrs. P. M. Wagn< r
went to Portland, Monday, re-
turuing the following day. Thev
brought with them, Mr. Wag­
ner’s sister, Mrs. German and
her young son, of Portland.
Todav, we understand, is the
birthday of Mrs. W. W. Boner,
and the event is to be duly hon­
ored. We wish her many returns
of the day.
Mrs. Irving Smith was a Port­
land visitor Tuesday.
