I Supervisor Dessinger is very
i biyy this week, making repairs
to some of Beaverton s streets.
At the crossing at the mill, and
on Broadway, in the vicinity of
the mill, some very much needed
repaireare being made, Then
the road north of the mill, will
be rocked and rolled for a con
siderable distance. 'This road
needs rock clear through to the
Canyon road,, but it is npt ex-
'pected that the supervisor will
' have funds sufficient to rock its
full length, but he will go as far
I as he can. ' '
I By all means, Beaverton should
have held a town fair this fall,

hay, vegetable and truck crops
been unusually , good, but the
fruit especially the apple crop,
is fine. We will probably never
have a better opportunity to
make as good or a more elabor

While out .driving: Monday af
ternoon, the team ran away with
Fred Darough and Miss Hazel
Pegg on the Portland road a
short distance east of town, tip

was uninjured. ' The buggy was
considerably damaged. ,
It is expected that by next
week work will be commenced
on Beaverton's high school build

about $19,000, a large portion of
which will be paid out for labor,
which, with the marketing of a
very large crop, materially help

daughters of Jefferson City, Mo.,

visiting G..Wv Baker arid family
at the farm, south of town. Mrs.
Gibler is a niece of Mr. Baker.
The Giblers were enroute home
from a visit to the San Francisco
exposition. ' .
The truck gardeners in the Be
averton section would appreciate
a little rain, now that the grain
harvest has been gariered, and
no damage from that source is in

So mtny people have gone to
the hopyards that it has been
deemed advisable by the board of
directors not to open the Beaver

Certainly Beaverton will not re
peal her vote of last fall, when
meeting is called again soon.
We have heard little lately re
garding the proposed sewer sys
tem for Beaverton. There is yet!
time to complete it before the
first of the year, in case the work
is commenced soon.,, The city
council has not discussed the mat
ter lately, and it is not known
whether it ha given up the
work for this year or not. The
council will meet again Monday
The onion crop on the beaver

somewhat with weeds molded
to some extent, but in most fields
the crop is normal, or a little
above the usual average.
