When Lee Moorhouse passed on,
there stepped from the life of Pen
dleton a leader who had accomplish
ed much in the development of this
part of Eastern Oregon from its
pioneer estate to its present stage of
progress. Nationally he was associat
ed in the minds of artists and illus
trators with all that is fine and per
fect in Indian photography. Litera
ture is not alone embellished by his
beautiful photography, but his rich
store of Indian lore and legend
was freely given to writers and au
thors in search of fact for history,
and atmosphere for western story.

Nation's Business finds that a
Hartford laundry has among its
clientele a man who sends his collars
in but once a year. When he sends
'em. he sends 'em all. His last list
contained this item: collars, 378. The
laundry says that he has done this
for the past three years. The sys
tem has its advantages. The worry
over service would be removed. If
one became a little soiled while
wrestling with a recalcitrant collar
button, there would always be an
other. Simply looking at almost four
hundred of his own collars must give
a man a pride of posession.

him guilty of telling a fib, rings true
of Gothamism strong for integrity
but loose on morals.
It developes that the capitol city
of Oregon, Salem, came near bearing
the Indian name of "Chemeketa."
The present name was proposed in
1846 by W. H. Willson of the Meth

We observe that Irving Berlin has

Statistcs disclose that 80 per cent

The Hyphenated Medford Mail-Tribune

An nged divine, whose enunciation
wus none of the clearest, Insisted
upon using big words on every possi
ble occasion. One day, after conduct
ing a children s service, he was
waited upon by a deputation of par
ents. "Our children," they complained,
"Inform us that you told them they
should always be up to mischief." The
puzzled cleric, sure of having said
nothing of the sort, asked the par
ents to wait while he consulted his
notes. Then It developed that what
he hud really said was that they
should always be "optimistic."
