Frank Steinbach, a farm ha'nd
of Harry Say, met with a serious
accident Sunday.1 x Mr. Say is
confined ttfto his bed with pneu
monia, 'so he sent tho man to take
the two little girls, aged 6 and 8
years, to he Children's Day ex
ercises at this place. When near
the church they met an antomo
ble which frightened the horse
so that he became unmanageable,
turning the buggy over and
throwing the occupants Co the
ground, fracturing the left arm
of the man, while the little girls
both lit on their heads. Mr. and
Mr3. Norman Say were in their
carriage nearby and assisted
them to the drug store of L. F.
Darby, where they were cared
for until Dr. Giesy of Aurora ar
rived and pronounced the fract
ure painful but not serious. The
little'girls were badly frightened
but were not injured in the least.
The five children ranging in
years from U to In and the hired
12 il l o V. F. Young, are confined
to their bed with the measles, but
are doing as well as could be ex

families in their neighborhood.

It ii'a matter of gratification
that Canby is 'now coming into
possession of something that ha3
been needed here, on account of
our suberb location and natural
advantages, for the past 10 years.
Canby soil is of such a nature
that it can be used in this. con
nection at almost any season of
the year. As level as a floor,
the ground, is dry, compact, and
is not rendered soft and muddy
by heavy rains. Immediately
after a bard rain the soil by nat
ural drainage becomes dry and
firm.. The location commands a
superb view of the Cascade
mountains, Mt. Hood, and is
near one of the prettiest forests
of fir in the Willamette Valley.
A fine perennial stream passes
near, and there will be an abun
dance of water.
It is the intention to make this
the nYoat famous' race track cen
ter in the Northwest, Our lo
cation is better than that of
Salem or any other point in Ore
gon, Q win naye some oi inc
best race horses in America her,
and the genuine old Kentucky
spirit will pervade the vast
throngs that will gather here to
witness the races. ,
Another project now under
consideration is the construction
of an automobile race course, of
a mile in length. Portland aut
oists are looking about for suit
able racing grounds and we can
accommodate them, and will, as
soon as the time conges.

Birds Est Scale Insects.
Few kinds of Insect are so Inimical
to the health aud existence of fruit
trees and other - crop plunts as tba
scales, aud owing to their small slzs
and peculiar habits few are so diffi
cult to cope with. It has been general
ly supposed that birds lend no assist
a nee in the destruction of scales. This
proves to be an error, for tue.blologlcai
survey has already found that more
than, fifty species of birds eat scale In
sects. Not only is this true, but In
the case of certain species, as the gros
lienks, scales have 1-cen ascertained to
form a large percentage of the food.
