he's off the road for good, getting

smack of alkali water out of bis
system, sifting the sand of East
ern Oregon for the last time out of
his clothing and spending his eve
nings beside the home hearth a
luxury long unknown. Like an old
war horse, turned out to pasture,
he will no doubt champ and chafe
for the road, but he will be con
soled by the memory of a length of
service equalled by few men, and
by the thought that for nearly half
a century he helped supply an em
pire of sweeping plain and moun

BILLY GARRETT QUITS.
Known as the "Grand Old Man"
among the fraternity of traveling
salesmen in Oregon, Billy Garrett
nab quit the road after 42 years
spent in making the circuit of East
ern Oregon towns and hamlets.
Hosts of friends will miss the reg
ular visits of this old veteran of
the sagebrush trail who has helped
feed the interior empire for more
than four decades.
Billy's service started back in
the time when he left The Dalles
with a horse and buggy and spent
weeks in making his circuit. Visits
from traveling men were few and
far between in those days and his
arrival was one of the big events
at the four-corners store. Days
would be spent in taking inventory
and making out a big order to car
ry the store through the coming
months. Those were the days, too,
when it was a long, long trail be
tween towns and frequently Billy
had to put up for the night in some
farmhouse "when darkness overtook
The halcyon days of his career
and the ones which he loved to
recall were during the mining boom
in the Baker and Cornucopia coun
