tATHENA. ORE.. APRIL 25 1913
Tbe Press is Informed (tat Portland
baa a "Big Sisterhood," an unique
sooiety, which invites the io teres t and
co-operatioo of mothers and daughters
and other members of families through
out the state. This society ia quite in
formal, and its organization oompiises
man; of the leadiug and well known
women of Portland. Its aim is to give
friendly aid and counsel to girls who
are alono in Portland or who for any
reason are iu need of a "Big Sister."
The work of the sooiety is not offered
as a cbatity, but is just tbe friendliness
of one woman for another, or a "Big
Siatoi" for a "Little Sister." So
many girls going to tbe .ily from the
country and tbe small towns have
fdilen into misfoitnue through want
of a friend, or iu some oases have
been utterly lost to tbeir borne people,
tbat these Portland women bave as
sociated themselves to extend the
friendly bund to gills and women who
need any kind of belp whatever. If
girls, or the parents of girls, wbo ere
going to Portland, will write to the
Big Sisterhood, care of tbe People's
Institute, arrangements will be made
to give tbr.m snob attention us they
may wish on reaobing Ibe city and
tbeir welfare will be looked after by
big sisters who will take pleasure in
knowing them and helping them. So
many sad thingB happen every day to
girls wbo go to Portland from small
i towns and tbe country tbat tbe im
portance of this aoquuiutauoe witb tbe
"Big Sisters" is urged upou mothers
and daughters throughout the state.
Tbe shifting aud obanging soeues of
a town or community are emphasized
and brought more forcibly to tbe at
tention of the editor than to anyone
else. As we pass from day to day and
from week to week tbe changes are
not so apparent to the ousual observer,
but ate made prominent to one con
nected with newspaper work. Mar
riage, deaths, births, arrivals and do
partuies, tusiueas transfers, tbe good
and bad fortunes of neighbors pass in
panoramic review. It surely is a
shifting, obanging soene and the news
paper man realizes bow rapidly towns
and communities change, for the rea
sou that it is bis work to obroniole tbe
changes as they ocour. During tbe
last few weeks a number of deaths
bave ooourred, and to tbo.se to wbom
tbe gloom of death bns oome, is tbe
realization of the shifting eoene, but
their vision is in a way circumscribed
to their own sorrow. Tbe newspaper
prints one story of death only to write
another, aud another, until it kuows
that men oome and men go and tbeir
presence is as shifting ua the sands of
the sea. Ex.

Donald Bell was Corn on the Island

rolling, burning and breakiug iu the
great virgin forests of Ootario, aud
surely no class of men were more qual
ified for the laborious task of felling
the forest and draining tbe marsh
than the stalwart sous of Sootland.
Tbe family bate all passed to tbeir
reward save Katberiue, wbo still lives
in Canada, und John who has lived
bure since 1890.
Tbe deceased bad always made bis
borne witb JoIjd, and when the latter
moved from Canada to Oregon, Don
ald followed soon after, coming here
in company with the Molntyre family.
He was of a retiring nature, being a
deaf mute from bis early years. He
was learning to talk as other children,
when at two years of age be was seized
with a maligcant lover which left
him afflicted for the remainder of bis
life. He died April 10, at tbe ripe
age of 81, an old inau greatly beloved

of people attended the funeral, wtiob
was conducted by A. Mackenzie Mel

"Such shipments mean Studebaker
has the confidence of the farmer"
Every year over one hundred thousand horse
driven vehicles are sold by Studebaker. Over a million
Studebaker vehicles are always in use. Stop and
think what that means.
This enormous output means that Farmers the
men "who know depend upon Studebaker wagons to
do their work. -
And a Studebaker wagon never fails. It is always
ready to do a big day's work and to keep on doing
it. There are thousands of Studebaker wagons that
have been in service from 20 to 40 years.
A Studebaker wagon is a real business asset Wheels, body,
frame, axles and running gear have been tested and retested by
experts. You can buy cheaper wagons but they're not Studebaker,
nor will they last like Studebaker wagons. ,
Whether in city, town or country, for business or pleasure,
there is a Studebaker vehicle to meet your requirements. Farm
wagons, trucks, contractors' wagons, buggies, surreys, runabouts,
pony carriages, business and delivery wagons each the best of its
kind. Studebaker harness also, of every description.
