Portland Concern Expects to
Make Albany Distributing
Point for This Section.
If Plans of Company Materialize
Warehouse Will Soon Be
Built in Albany.
Grain Crop Is Fair and Average
Crops Will Be Garnered
Fruits Are Doing Well.
Walked Off With $15 Worth of
Gold Plate and Scrap While
Dentist Was Absent.
G. W. St. Pierre, the financial rep
resentative of the Co-Operative Sup
ply House of Portland, arrived in Al
bany this morning and will remain
here for the balance of the week for
the purpose of interesting the people
of Linn county in his company.
The Co-Operative Supply House of
Portland is a new institution for the
Pacific coast. This concern will han
dle everything from a package of pins
to a threshing outfit. Its aim will be
to supply the people of Oregon and
surrounding states with articles which
they arc now sending their money
cast to purchase from the large firms
such as Sears, Roebuck & Co., and
Montgomery-Ward & Co., and in this
way keep the money in the west. This
house buys any and all produce raised
in Oregon, thus furnishing a ready
market for home consumption. It also
takes the raw product such as wool
from the grower and turns it back to
the grower in a finished product, the
work being done by Oregon labor.
It is the intention of the company
to establish a warehouse in this city
some time during the year and make
this a receiving and distributing point
for this section. Millions of dollars
which are now being sent east will in
this way be kept in Oregon.
The present indications are that
there will be a bountiful harvest in
Linn county and preparations to gar
ner the crops are now under way
throughout the county. Threshing
will begin next week in this county
and in a short time will be in full
blast in all sections.
While the grain crop is not extra
large, the present indications are for
a fair vield. fall grain will yield
about SO per cent of an average yield
and will be a trifle short of last year's
yield, the shortage being due to the
unusually cold spring. There will be
an average crop of spring grain, the
yield being better than the yield ot
fall grain.
The hay crop this year was a large
one ami was larger man last jt.u
crop. Early vetch was slightly in
jured by the June rains. There will
be a large crop 01 potatoes. i ne
vield of fruits of all kinds is good
"with the exception of prunes and
peaches. The prune crop will be
about 25 per cent of last year's yield.
When Dr. Collins, the dentist, who
has offices in the Tweedale block, re
turned home Tuesday after being ab
sent from the city Sunday and Mon
day, he discovered that he was minus
about $15 worth of gold scrap and
plate which had been stolen from his
office during his absence, evidently by
the same person who entered the of
fice oi Dr. Leiuinger just across the
street and stole about $1S worth of
gold plate and passed up several dol
lars worth of platinum.
Dr. Collins states that every so
often the gold thieves make their ap
pearance anil that he recalls one time
when thev cleaned out nearly every
dentist office along the Mississippi

paving of First street from Mont

V. Ashby, superintendent ot
the paving operations in this city,
stated to the Democrat representative
this morning that the Mock in front
of the piifsenger station on Fifth
street, between Lyon mul l'.akcr,
would be paved as soon as the eh
trie company completes the work of
laying brick alodg that street and all
their switclu-s are installed.

Fourth street as far east as Jackson

Frank Isabell. a former resident of
Albany, died at Salem last night and
the remains will be brought to Al
bany for interment.
The deceased was 70 years of age,
and had been ill for some weeks prior
to his death. He was a brother of
Mrs. II. A. La Selle and Mrs. J. D.
Tntmball of this city.
The funeral services will be held
at Fortmiller's Undertaking Parlors
on Saturday at 1:30 p. m.
Probably the first threshing outfit
to begin operations in Linn cotinty
this year was that of Mueller and
Sons which commenced yesterday af
ternoon on the J. li. Birch farm, live
miles east of Albany.
D. II. P.orline. who drove in from
that vicinity this morning, stated that
he was informed by members of the
crew at work there that wheat on the
Kirch farm was running about 20
bushels to the acre, which was better
than was expected.
The new combination pump and
chemical engine recently purchased
by the city of Eugene passed through
this city last evening and while here
gave a demonstration near the St.
Charles hotel which was witnessed by
Mayor Gilbert, the members of the
city council, and a. large crowd of peo
ple. The new engine is a dandy and can
certainly throw plenty of water. May
or Gilbert and the council were very
much pleased with the results of the

L. E. Hamilton returned about 10
o'clock last night from a trip to Cas
cadia at which place there is quiet a
colony of prominent residents of Al
bany who are enjoying their summer
It seems to be the general opinion
among the city council and the busi
ness men of Lebanon that it is best
for all concerned not to do any pav
ing this year. There are several rea
sons why the improvement should be
put off, the main reason being mat tne
sewer system will not be completed
before fall, and it is said the Water
company would like to put in larger
water mains before the pavement is
down, and there are other minor
reasons that it would be better to
postpone the work. The firm that
was awarded the contract to put in
the pavement has been communicat
ed with and they have expressed
their willingness to wait until spring
to commence the work. If every
thing is left as it now stands the work
can be taken up in the spring where
it is left off now and what has been
done so far will not be lost, but if a
remonstrance should be taken up now
and the movement killed, all of the
work in the way of advertising and
such as that would all have to be
done over again. While it has not
been fully decided officially that this
work will' be put off, it seems as if this
course will be the one pursued.

C. H. WALKER SEES 15,000
Albany, Ore., July 31, 1912.
Editor Democrat:
I read with interest the statement
made a few days since by an Albany
visitor that Albany s population n
five vears would be 15,000, as publish
ed in the Democrat. I agree with
him and make the. following fore
casts for each year:
Assuming that Albany's population
including the suburbs not within the
city limits, to be 7500, the increases
will be as follows: 1st year 4.-U, dml
year 750; 3rd year 950; 4th year,
1850; 5th year, 3500; total, 7500.
The actual gain will very likely go
above rather than below there figures.
With 15.000 population, land with no
improvements out two miles will be
from $400 to $500 per acre. Albany
is "on the map" to slay. I shall keep
this estimate for future reference to
see how near correct I have been.
Always ready to "boost" our fair
L. .1. Lurl, ot this city, will leavu

sentatives from the Grand Lodge of

ust 6 for a session of 10 days.
Mr. Curl has been a member of
Laurel Lodge Xo. 7, Knights of Pylh
ias, of this city, for many years, and

San Kraucisco, Cal., August 1.
The Ten - Minute Wringle Eradi
cator, a concoction which is said to
be as marvelous as the waters from
Ponce de Leon's wonderful Fountain
of Youth, will be placed on exhibi
tion tins morning before Police Judge
Sullivan, and there is just the merest
possibility that a demonstration of its
etVicieney will be made.
The powers of the Ten-Minute
Wrinkle Eradicator, however, is a
mere incident to other more import
ant business of a legal nature which
will be transacted. Madame Gertrude
Klarmer, also known as Mile. Ger
trude Pona, who conducts a beautj
parlor at lo6 Geary street, but whose!
name her accuser says, is really
Jones, will appear on a charge of ob
taining money under false pretenses.
Also will appear her husband, Mon
sieur J. Hella Klarmer, on the same
Mrs. Louise Panarousi, who con
ducts an apartment house at 1618A
Turk street, swore to the complaint
yesterday. She says that she has been
swindled out of some $i00 which she
put into the wrinkle eradicator.
Mrs. Panarousi says that she
bought a half interest, but that Ma
dame Pona, or Klarmer, refused to
divulge the secret of its preparation
to her until lately, when she chanced
to come into the room secretly.
.Madame Klarmer, she says, was
breaking eggs. She put the yolks in
to one gMass and the whites into the
other. 1 found the whites were erad-
icators, but I think they are a lizzie.'
"Mrs. .Panarousi doesn't know what
she is talking about," said Madame
the defendant yesterday. "I can re
move any wrinkle you wish to trot
Mrs. Panarousi also made the state
ment that women patrons had come
to be treated wit lithe Ten-Minute
Wrinkle Eradicator and that they had
grumbled because they said it was
not a success.
"Madame Pona told me,M Mrs. Pan
arousi stud, that their grunumng
didn't make any difference, because
they would be afraid to tell their hus
bands of what thy had done. We
charged them $50 or $100."
The strange part of the affair is
that Mrs. Panarousi stated that Ma
dame Pona, or Klarmer, or Jones,
must be about sixty years of age, but
it can't be denied that she doesn't
look a day over thirty.

ed with the result of his trip, lie
stated that he found the telephones
ami trails in tine condition.
"The trails recently constructed
through the various parts of the
mountains are so well marked," said
Mr. MaeDutT, "that it would be easier
to get lost on one ttf the roads lead
ing out of1 Albany than it would on
the trails. We have sign boards at
every fork in the trails which makes
it extremely easy to find one's way."
While gone Mr, MaeDutT covered
practically the entire eastern section
of Linn county from the northern
boundary to the southern boundary
and visited llig Meadows, Daly Lake,
Lizzard Ridge, Itiugham Basin, Three

Lake, Nigger Baby, Browder Ridge,
Smith Prairie, Bunchgrass Mountain,
Battleax and Colli n mountains.

llood, Diamond Peak, Mt. Jefferson,
and Mary's Peak, while these same
views can be obtained from the sum
mit of Collin mountain, including a
view of Mt. St. Helens.
Telephones are located on the sum
mits of both Batlleax and Collin
mountains from which the lookouts
can talk to Albany or Portland. The
only fires so far reported were caused
by the lightning storms a few weeks
ago. all of which owing to the prac
tical use of the telephones were ex
tinguished by the men in less than
forty-eight hours.
