Started for Haskins’ to witness the sights;
The day at first was oh, so tine,
But alas, what a decided change at nine
Our chaperon was about alright,
And the leaders they were out of sight,
With Paddy it> his trousers white
Acted the clown as best be might.
The crowd was slow, the day was blue,
And we were lost for what to do.
Some sat around the dreary fire,
While others did the falls admire.
At last came time for lunch so fine,
And round the spread we dropped ill line;
There was no one to say the grace,
But each one looked it on his face.
Of the delicious food we need not speak,
For it disappeared as a lightning streak:
Sandwiches, pickles, eggs and beans,
Cakes, pies, coffee and cream.
Then came the picture so sublime
Taken by amateurs quite fine;
Some held sandwiches, a kettle, one,
Others held cakes, and coffee, some.
While the table then the girls did clear,
And for the'.eventng lunch, we shed a tear,
As everyone so heartily ate
That nothing was left but a radish for bait.
For the Next Ten Days will offer Our Entire
Stock at Marked Reduction from Former Price.
Then a few to the hacks retired;
Others to stay by the tire desired;
The lunch exposed the rain did soak
While the boysenjoyed a hearty siuoke.
At last came time to say goodbye,
And for the homeward march we heaved a
As the rein had played havoc with robesand
And someone suggested we better take boats,
The prominent features of the homeward ride
Were cakewalks and snapshots along the road
Some were drowsy, others were gay,
While a few sang songs in their jolly way.
All our fine hand-turned Tan Shoes of the
well-known Drew-Selby make formerly sold at
$3.50 and #3.75, all go at $2.50.
But we’ll visit old Haskins some tuture day,
When the clouds roll by and the snow melts
Then we’ll gather together our party so
We’ll have a rousing old time In the sweet
bye and bye.

Our merchant, Mr. Bull, has sold his
property in Hopewell, and is soon to
make his home in Portland.
After six months of successful teach
ing Mrs. Walling closed her school at
Hopewell, Friday, the 23d, with a re
ception for her scholars. Ice cream and
cake were served.
The picnic given in the Hopewell grove
Wednesday, June 14th, under the aus
pices of the ladies’ guild was quite well
attended, and a success both socially
and financially. The solo rendered by
Prof. Ginn of Salem was highly appreci-
atek by all, and received tlie applause
for an encore as usual. The andience
showed their appreciation of the young
ladies’ hoop drill, under the training of
Mrs. Christenson, by requesting it re
peated in the afternoon. After all ex
penses the guild showed a profit of |33.95
from their ice cream stand.

O resurrect stale Groceries from dark and mustv corners-
We believe firmly in the hygienic and business value
of pure food products. As a dry goods merchant who
understands his business keeps his shelves as free as
possible from shop worn and out-of-date goods, so it
becomes the model grocer to steer clear of musty,
wormy, dirty and impure preparations.

On Wednesday Eugene Leoper created
quite a stir up the West Side in his race I
against time. T. II. Rogers and R. A.
Harris employed him at his usual charge
for ordiuary labor—20 cents an hour—to
run from McMinnville to Corvallis, a dis
tance of very nearly 50 miles by rail.
The object of this race was to leave ibis
citv at 7 a. tn., run to Corvallis and re
turn to this city on the afternoon train,
which leaves Corvallis at 1:20 p. in., and
incidentally to break the world’s record
for a long distance swing trot, which in
sporting circles is classed as walking.
His attire was knee pants, sweater, cap
and bicycle shoes. Herein was the mis
take. The shoes were too light to stand
the strain, and running on the gravel
bed of the railroad forced the tacks up
into his feet, and he was compelled to
stop when he had reached Independence.
With the excitability characteristic of
human kind, people had gathered at all
stations along the route to see the “hu
man engine” pass by. The distance and
time made by Leoper was as follows:
McMinnville........... ........... 7:00
. .. . 7:32
Amity..................... ......... 7:52
McCoy.................... ........... 8:35
Derry..................... ......... 9 :58
Independence .... ....'. U :12
Leoper and his friends are confident
that he can perform the feat under more
favorable circumstances, aud will try
again Home time, Leoper says the track
is pretty good until beyond Amity, where
the weeds bothered his progress some-
wl at. The train caught him about the
middle of the long culvert near Inde
pendence, Hnd he was obliged to get
down and cling to the side until the
the train passed.
