Poplar Bluff, Mo.
April 26. 1906.
Editor Wheatfield.
Please allow me a little space In
your paper. 1 and my little grand
daughter arrived to Poplar Bluff Sat
urday nlghf April 21st, found my sons
folks well and -anxiously awaiting to
see us, we 'njoyed our trip fine
though it was some what tiresome.
Eychanped'Sars in Kansas City .and
thence South through the Kansas Line
to Poplar Bluff via Frisco R R. we
went through a small part of Arkansaw
where the cotton, frogs and mosquitoes
grow, I do not know what thejr had
against m to take me over that route
for unless they wanted me to eat
Peaches and Muskadiaes, we see
some wonderful sights In Arkansaw
but the worst of all was tin Hoxie
Arkansaw where we actuallyirode In a
Rat box called a street car, it was
drawn by a mule, they would, just look
At usnd say, well where .are youens
from, we told them we ware from Ore
gon and they would want to know what
partaSf Arkansaw, Oregon was in so
after we had told them where Oregon
was,ithey would say oh yes youens
wasin the earth quake eb? The depot
consisted of a box car.. .They did not
Jcno' what county they lived In but
would tell you Uncle Hank had two fine
coon dogs and they bad ithelr shoulders
worn out from carrying an old muzzle
loading rifle or a Winchester. When
the train would arrive very man and
his family would come to the depot to
see the train come through, but as we
traveled up the line and into Missouri
people began to get more enlightened
and by the time we got to my sons we
found bright people again.'
Poplar Bluff Is a swell little city, Is
a Jtction of the Mo. P. & Frisco
systems. The inhabitants is about
9000, a beautiful stream runs through
the City, five schools and fine business
houses, three banks. There is nearly
as much business done here as In
Portland, they have gas and electric
lights and are making preparations for
electric street cars. To see the city
at night all lit up one would think they
were in Portland. My son lives Just
out of the corporation and has a beau- j
tiful little place and good prospects for
fruit. Everything is beautiful, of
course we have some people here who
failed to carry their umbrellas or wear
their hats last summer and the sun
had a bad effect on them and turned
them negro. I feel once more as if I
had arrived in my old home state, the
birds keep up a continous song, the
trees are all In bloom, I like this place
here very much, it is not so hot here
as when I left Oregon but don't know
;hat th summer will brine on. We
saw some beautiful country through
Eastern Kansas the fruit trees and
wheatfields look fine, wheat was up 6
or 8 Inches high, very bright prospects
for crops this year. )
With best wishes for The Wheatfield
and my friends.
Yours Very Truly
Mrs. S. Boothby.
Itl Kangeroun to Neglect a Cold,
How often do we hear it, remarked
"It's only a cold," and a few days
later learn that the man Is on his back
with pneumonia. This is of such
common occurrence that a cold, how
ever slight, should not be disregarded.
Ceamberlaln's Cough Remedy counter
abts any tendency of a cold to result in
pneumonia, and has gained its great
popularity and extensive sale by its
prompt cures of this most common
ailment. It always cures and is pleas
ant to take. For sale by W P. Mc
Robert Van Horn of Upper Black
Horse moved to Joe Meier's place on
Willow Creek last Wednesday. We
are glad to have them so near our en
terprising little town.
Mrs. Stella Morgan of Portland who
has been visiting her parents Mr. and
Mrs. R. Van Horn left Saturday for
Baker City where her husband is em
ployed as head boss in a large furniture
store. They will make their furture
home there.
Joe Meier Is on the sick list the
past few days , We hope he will soon
Making garden, planting corn and
summer following is taking the day
now. We are glad people of this
community are so industrous
Bathing within the town limits, In
Willow Creek. Is strictly forbidden.
If persisted in arrests will be made.
W. G. Scott,
32-36 1 Mayor. '
All persons are hereby warned
against bathing In Willow creek within
sight of my residence., Parties per
sisting in doing so will be prosecuted
to the full extent of the law.
