Last Thursday night Moun­
tain Chapter, 0. E. S., enter­
tained Mrs. Ida Umbach, the
grand worthy matron of the or­
der in the state of Oregon.
This was her first official visit to
the local chapter and the mem­
bers were all on the qui vive to
make the occasion a notable one.
They were a little nervous at
the start, but as everything
worked out smoothly they soon
got over that. The work was
put on with precission and they
covered themselves with glory,
and received a well deserved
tribute of praise from their dis­
tinguished guest and official,
who only found reason to make
a few minor criticisms, After
the exercises were over, a de­
lightful luncheon was served by
the ladies, which added the final
touch to the evening’s entertain­
ment. Those present from out
of town were Mr. and Mrs.
John Greenwood, of Bull Run,
Mrs. Alf Drill, of Portland, and
0. C. Smith who happened to be
home visiting his family.
Hom e Coming Night
Last Saturday night the Odd
Fellows had a ‘’Home Coming”
celebration for all near and far
Odd Fellows, many of whom
came from adjoining towns. It
was truly a de.ightful affai % as
everyone enjoyed the occasion.
It made them all feel the frater­
nal spirit which is so charuter-
istic of the order, and which
makes it so strong and popular
with men and women. The pro­
ceedings closed with a sumptuous
banquet, without which no such
event would be complete, and
all returned home feeling that
they had (ns of the times of
their lives, and proud of their
membership in such a great

A Lesson and a W arning
Manager Linn presents Satur­
day night, one of the most thril­
ling and spectacular plays ever
shown here.
The story concerns the adven­
tures of Maddie Irwin, a prettv,
unworldly country miss, who has
longed through her life for the
gayety of New York, and who,
after her marriage with Fred
Worthington, a wealthy New
Yorker, persuades her husband
to take her to the city and lead
her through the giddy whirl of
life he has renounced.
The usual price for this num­
ber is 50 cents, but that every­
one may see it, Mr. Linn will
only charge 25 cents admission.

Thursday from Timothy Mead­
ow, bringing with him the head
and skin of a mountain lion which
was shot by Fred Bannister, with

a tree when he first shot and
wounded it. It came down and

An Exciting Experience
Ed. Boner had a thrill Friday
night when coming home with
the school debating team from
West Linn. After passing Clack­
amas about a mile, the water
was running over the road and
caused the car to swerve to the
side and threatened to upset it.
Fortunately it righted itself, but
Boner says he had a genuine
scare for a few moments.

We have received a very ex­
cellent report of the debates
held here and at West Linn last
Friday night. As our space was
almost filled up when we receiv­
ed it, we shall publish it next
week, as it is too good to curtail.
