Notice to the Public
This week we assume the manage
ment and editorship of the WASHING
TON COUNTY N e w s . In doing so we
find ourselves not only in the midst of
a beautiful city and surrounding
country but also in the midst of lots of
hard work, for we mean to keep THE
NEWS up to its present standard of
excellency, and to do so we are com
pelled to ask the co-operation of all.
It shall be our aim to please our readers
in so far as it is within our power, and
to further the interests of Forest Grove
The paper shall maintain the policy
as heretofore and as for politics it will
be found in the republican ranks.
We ask the continuance of the
excellent patronage the paper has had
in the past, which will thus make THE
NEWS one of the best and newiest
papers in Washington county.
J. F. WOODS, Editor.

that there is something wrong some

dollars worth in the entire county.

After all, the chief charm of this race
of winged flowers does not lie in their
varied and brilliant beauty, nor yet in
their wonderful series of transforma

comprises their beauty, their lovemak

It is not a pleasant thought that the
brilliant white note paper which your
hand rests upon may have in it the
fibers from the filthy garment of some
Egyptian fellah after it has passed
through all the stages of decay until it
is saved by a ragpicker from the gut
ter of an Egyptian town, and yet it is
a fact that hundreds of tons of Egyp-
tain rags are exported every year into
America to supply our paper mills. At
Mannheim, on the Rhine, the American
importers have their ragpicking houses
where rags are collected from all over
Europe, the disease infected Levant not

dren, too poor to earn a better living,
work day after day, with wet sponges
tied over their mouths, sorting these
filthy scraps for shipment to New York.
