but not satisfied to rest with our present success, we
are determined to give the people a still Better Service

points and believe it the best for us and for our customers.
Even though a customer is perfectly good pay, unless we have some regular specified time for payment of
his account, we do not know what to count on and hence have to borrow the money to handle the bills of
goods we buy.
The generous patronage previously given us, we appreciate.
W e want you to con­
tinue it, and We Want new customers also, and We shall make it Worth your while to
trade with us.

Maximums Elect Officers
The Maximum class of the
school at Forest Grove was par­
tially organized Oct. 1907. A
little less than two ' ears later
the ciass charter was granted by
“ The Board o f the Methodist
Episcopal church” and “ The In­
ternational Sunday School Asso­
When the charter was received
there were forty members of the
class. Mrs. Aggie Ginn Gould
was at that time teacher of the
class and remained teacher until
the last Conference at Eugene
saw fit to move Rev. Gould and
wife to another field of labor,
Mrs, Gould was loved by all
those who came into her class,
and it is with a feeling of sadness
when the class must bid farewell
to their teacher.
This class has been very active
not only in church work but also
in social affairs and along many
other lines. When the church
was built the class put two win­
dows, which cost $50 in their
class room.
Then they pledged themselves
to pay $100 more on the general
Most o f these
young people are members of the
Epworth League which also put
in a window costing $75 and their
pledge o f $100, besides about $100
paid on the new bell.
from these pledges, the members
individually gave over $1000
toward the new building.
An axiom o f the class is,
“ Once a Maximum always a
Maximum” and all members who
leave the class are kept in touch
with the class and a large map
in the class room indicates the
place where they reside.
Since the organization o f the
class in 1909 there have been 214
members registered and 59 c f

DeWitt L. Perry, Oct. 7th, 19l2.
The last meeting of the class
beh re Mi s. Gould leaves was
held in the par ors of the M. E.
church Monday evening Oct. 6th.
The following officers were elec­
ted for the coming year, presi­
dent, Ralph Clark, vice-president
Max Reeher, secretary, Clara
Wagner, treasurer, Clara Sage,
librarian, Albert Kirkwood.
All left wishing Mr. and Mrs.
Gould a prosperous and success­
ful year in their new work.
