ment o f Parents
Fought Contest Seen Here
Say boys, you fellows that used to
ride out to Banks in an automobile and
then walk back, when you got able to
walk, where are the kegs that you car
ried home in the dark? Your friend
Mister Miller wants to know and what’s
more he’s got your name down in a
great big book and if you don’t dig up
those kegs he’ s going to charge you
good money for ’em. Just listen fellers
and hear what Mr. Miller has to say in
a recent issue o f the Bank’s Herald;
here’s his message:
“ I have a number o f empty keggs
scattered through the country and any
one having one in their possession will
please return them to me. $2.00 will
be charged up to each keg not returned.
Anyone owing me on account will please
leave the money at the Washington
County Bank, and oblige.
J. M. Miller.
That sounds almost like a voice from
the/ spirit land -shpirit shland—hic—and
makes one feel like singing that dear
old song entitled “ Coming Through the
rye,” does it not? But really boys
without any jesting or jesticulating you
ought to take those kegs back. Its
true that they are awful nice for apple
jell and pumpkin marmelade and to
bathe baby brother in but Mister Miller
needs them. All he wants back is the
kegs. He doesn’ t risk you to bring
back the stews, nor the buns, nor the
blue teas, nor the rolls you have taken
from him; oh no, brother, Mister Miller
is not that kind of a girl; you can have
the buns and the stewB etcetera for
cafeteria purposes, but do be good and
take back the kegs.
Not many days ago there met a con
vention of more interest to some dear
folks than the big National Democratic
and Republican conclaves. It was a
gathering o f a score of babies who met
for the purpose o f discussing the parent
problem, and incidentally to stand be
fore a camera for a group picture. In
their baby talk they roasted the fathers
to a brown turn for staying out so late
at the club and the mothers for not pro
viding more bonbons instead of grape-
nuts and Meilin’ s food.
The club was organized by Mrs. Lulu
Bain, their nurse, who saw to it at one
time injtheir lives that they got plenty
of pure fresh air, sleep, food and baths
with a liberal sprinkling o f talcum
powder; they insisted that Nursie Bain,
as they call her. be taken in the group
The club boasts o f the fact that one
of their number, Miss Margaret Hines,
won one o f the big prizes at the
eugenics show, while many o f their
number received honorable mention:
that they were all born in Forest Grove
and every one is well and healthy. The
youngest member is Miss Ciaribel
Whited, aged three weeks, and the
oldest Douglas Stewart, aged seven,
whose home is in Seattle.
There were fifteen members of the
club present, and regrets were received
from Ciaribel Whited, Wilbur Hard-
trampf and Ethel Tucker, o f this city;
Douglas and Patricia Stewart, o f Se
attle; Elda.'and Evered Berdan, of
Hillsboro. Those present were:
Caples, A. Stanley Caples, Marguerite
Mertz, Olive Fuqua, Lojs Fuqua.
Thelma Hocking, Quentin Stockman,
Margaret Hines, Mildred Carmick,
Franklin Buhman, of this city, and
Hugo Limber, of Vancouver, Wash.
They met at the Darling-Ingersoll
Studio. At their next meeting their
subject will be “ The Abolition of the
Shingle,” and Lyle Paterson will lead
in the discussion.
