The Portland Chamber of Com
merce has inaugurated a fine
new plan for giving Oregon and
Portland a much-needed round
of advertising. The new idea is
to be christened "Letter Writing
Week,'.' and is to. be participated
in by every, residentrof Oregon.
The week set aside will probably
be the third week in January. On
this week every resident qf Port
land and Oregon will be expected
to write several letters to friends
and relatives in the East, extoll
ing the grajideur of our Oregoa
scenery, the immense crops, and
the value of our great cities and
small towns as resident, centers.
There will bo appointed by the
Portland Chamber of Commerce

was, however, outside in the al

wide-tired wagon, which had
been backed up to the rear door,
and the stuff loaded in. The rear
room, whch was used as a store
room, was almost depleated of
its abundant stock,' and nothing

in and around Beaverton, several
