bration Held There.
Hreitenbush Hot Springs, July 5.
Cditor Democrat, Dear Sir: I think
all the people who have visited this
place in the past would be interested
lo hear of the great celebration we
had here the Fourth.
Wc arc awakened at 3 a. ni. bv two
terrific powder explosions, which
shook the sleep from us and re-echoed
through the early morning stillness
of these vast forests.
I he morning was spent in watch
ing the roasting of a sheep over a pit
luiru Willi live coals made trom vine
maple wood.
At noon a splendid barbecue dinner
was served when the mutton was
placed on the tabic whole and carved
before us.
The tables were set for forty people,
under some of the beautiful cedar
trees which abounded here.
At noon the warm sun shone forth,
to gladen the heart of every sick per
son. The dinner consisted of everything
in the market, and mountain trout for
those who cared not for mutton, also
a delicious assortment of cakes, pies
and oranges.
The afternoon was occupied with
strongly contested races, baseball and
other features. In the evening we
had our usual cainpfirc and song ser
vice, which was followed by beauti
ful fireworks, for which we are verv
thankful to Mr. John Outerson of a
D.-if-oit tnri
After this some of the more active
members of the party danced on the
croquet grounds, (o the music of a
mouth organ.
There was something doing all the
time from $ a. m. lo 11:30 p. m.
Kvervone is expresing themselves
as having had the greatesi Fourth in
their meniorv.
Yours truly,
Through the efforts of Knight W.
Wheeler of the Eugene U. S. Navy
recruiting station, one of the small
first issue of the new United States
flag has been received and is on exhi
bition. The difference in the new flag
is the arrangement in stars, necessi
tated by the admission last year of
two new states into the Union, namely
Arizona and New Mexico.
The first American flag was official
ly adopted by act of congress, June
14, 1777, this act reading:
"That the flag of the thirteen Unit
ed States by 13 stripes, alternate red
and white, that the Union be 13 stars.'
The design of the flag was sug
gested by the coat-of-arms of the
Washington family which contained
both the stars and the stripes.
The next change occurred Jan. 13,
1794, when the flag had 15 stripes and
15 stars, The third change was made
in 1818 and the number of states hav
ing then increased to 20, the stars
increased lo that number. The stripes,
however, were reduced to 13, symboli
cal of the original colonics. This act
i of congress provided that on the ad-,
j mission of every new state into the.
Union, a star be added and that such 1
I addition shall take effect on July 4, 1
next succeeding such admission,
j Subsequent changes were nnde tin-
: til 190C). when the flag cont.vned 45
j stars. Til 1909 this mini he- wn in
creased by one and in 191.? bv two.;
' Op Julv 4 the newly designed flag
was adopled. Tn the centra of Mir
; blue field is a group of 13 -,tars for
1 the original colonies. Surrounding
this group is a circle of 25 -star-: for fie i
; states admitted un to 1876. (he KiC.
j year period of American independ-
j encc. Mate added to the Unn"i n'e

with Pets Because of
Severe Heat.
Because of the extreme heat in the
Middle West, Pamahastka has been
stranded with his pts in Iowa, sev
eral of which are suffering with sick
ness, and therefore will be unable to
fill his engagement at the Chautauqua
tomorrow, according to information
received this morning by the manage
ment. In place of Pahamasika's en
tertainment the Sierra Quartet, of
San Francisco will appear on the pro
gram in the afternoon. Those who
attended are assured a pleasing en
tertainment as the quartet comes high

eral features which were not includ
ed in their original program.
Wi A. Elder Jook charge of the
Stayton postoftice Tuesday, July 1.
All his friends will be pleased to
learn of his success and no daubt
"Art" will make a good postmaster.
W. S. Waters, the retiring post
master has faithfully served the pub
lic nearly sixteen years. He was ap
pointed in 1897, during McKinley's
administration. "Cap," as he is fa
miliarly called is getting well along
in years. He is a member of the lo
cal G. A. R., having served nearly
five years in the Union army.
Bo.b Fletcher is back again on the
job as train director at the Southern
Pacific depot. He has been laid up
for several days with sickness and
during his absence his position was
filled bv Cecil Conn.
In an interview given out to the
Democrat this morning, F. S. Mitchell,
secretary of the grange, declared that
the failure of the city authorities to
provide hitching places for the farm
ers' teams is keeping many farmers
away from the Chautauqua grounds.
According to the regulations adop
ted by the committee in charge of the.
grounds, teams are not allowed in the
Films for the Farmer" and the
"Dairy that Pays a Profit" are the
titles of two splendid articles in the
current issue of the Country Gentle
man. For sale by Riley Lobaugh and
he says that they are of momentous
interest to farmers. Telephone him
for a copy and it will be sent by mail.
i Frank W. Smith said in the Corval
lis Gazette-Times: "With almost ev
ery house occupied in the city ot Cor
I vallis, that is in any way fit to rent
at the present time, Corvallis will be
! in need of a lot more modern houses
i for people to rent when the college
; opens again. Why should not the
i man with means build a few new
j -iiim that none may be turned
away? This is the way to build up
the city. When the sewer is com
pleted in the northwest part of the
j -ity, that section ought to build up
j wry I'aM, as lots are very reasonable
' in pince Sewerage and drainage is all
! thai end oi the city has needed."
Perhaps it has mwr occurred lo the! ir.iveler thai it actually com, a

Southern Pacini company has had the

gelling the exact ligurcs. While au
thorities differ on the estin ate, it
see m ipiile well established that e ei y

average sized passenger train and pow
er again applied to set it in motion,
the railroad company is out from fifty
to sixty cents. It costs about that to
take c.ito of the wear and tear upon

the track, to provide power to pump
the air and to the steam thai
starts ihe wheels revolving.
