Get Ready for
the Big Event
Yamhill County is signally blessed this
year with good crops. It will be a rare year
for the display of BIG THINGS in all lines.
Let us make lots of the opportunity to show
what our soil and industry can do.
We will have visitors looking for new loca­
tions. Treat them cordially, and spare no
pains to show them our resources.
We have everything to be proud of—noth­
ing to be ashamed of.
Rule out all obnoxious fakirs, who would
rob the unwary of their hard-earned shekels.
Admit the man with the legitimate enter­
tainment, that will educate while it amuses,
and will teach the people the world’s progress.
Be particular to tidy up your own place of
business, even if it costs you a few dollars.
Study features and secure something unique
and original.

There’s lots of folks that has good times,
There’s lots that never does;
But the ones that don’t like morning naps
Is the meanest ever wuz.
It’s very nice to eaf a meal
With pie for it’s wind-up;
'Taint half so sweet’s th’ nap Ta spoils
When he yells, "You git up!”
I’d rather lay in bed and snooze
Jest one small minit more
In the morning when the sunshine
Comes a creeping o’er the floor,
Than to go to Barnum’s circus or
To own a bulldog pup,
The meanest thing Pa ever said
Wuz, “Come now—you git up!”
I like to go in swimming.
And I like to play baseball;
I like to fight and fly a kite,
'N' I sometimes like to bawl;
But them there forty winks of sleep
Pa tries to interrup'
Is better 'n' all. It breaks my heart
When Fa yells, “You git up1“
I’d stand the hurt and ache and pain
And all the ¿mart and itch
Of having him turn the bed clothes down
To wake me with a switch,
Ef he’d only jest go way
• And let me finish up
The nap I started jest before
He yelled out, “You git up!”
You bet when I git growed up big
’N’ rich and old as Pa,
’N’ never hafto go to school,
Nor work nor stand no Jaw,
I'll sleep all day and all night, too,
And only jest git up
When I git nough sleep to suit me
Ef all the world yells, “You git up I”

assessment rolls in any errors that may
occur thereon ill valuation or description
of property, and for transacting any
other business that may lawfully come

brake is similar to those now in use, only
that it is applied to the sprocket wheel

Its construction is simple, containing
but nine pieces, while the brake now

Being attached to the
sprocket there is necessarily less friction
and the brake will last the lifetime of

the Observer as follows: “We arrived
here safe aud well on July 5th and found
the city to be a very nice one and one of
the most healthy in South America. It
is on sandy soil and there is no marsh
land anywhere near it, as it is built on
low rolling sand hills.
It is a large
place and is built of brick, stone and
cement. Many of the buildings are
three-story and the streets are clean and
dry, except when it is raining, and then
the sand is simply wet for a few hours.

The new crop of potatoes is moving at
an unusually lively rate for so early in
the season.
Many carload lots have
been shipped to the upper country aud

Dealers are paying 90
cents per cental, or about $1.10 per sack
and growers are hastening to get as
many as possible off their hands at this
rate, which is better than ft.25 in the
spring, for it saves a lot of hauling and
loss by shrinkage.

Enough threshing has been done in
this vicinity to show that the yield of
wheat will be fully up to the average,
some fields have averaged over thirty
bushels to the acre, and those were not
among the best.
Friday evening Elder Cane, pastor of
the Christian church at this place, lost
the little finger of his right hand by
getting it caught in the elevator of a
sacker at Roth's threshing machine,
while trying to put on a belt. He was
brought to town and the member was
taken off close to the hand.
C. E. Stone sustained a broken ankle
which will lay him up for some time.
Saturday morning while working with a
hay baler, he slipped and let a bale of
hay fall on his right leg, which broke
the ankle joint. He was brought to
town and the fracture was reduced, and
it is thought he will get along all right,
yet the fracture is a bad one.
The big strike in San Francisco has
bad its effect on the lumbering industry
in Astoria and the surrounding country.
While the effect in the city has been
beneficial, in the logging districts it has
been detrimental.
The strike has caused one peculiar
state of affairs, in that it is possible for
some of the San Francisco fruit canneries
to receive boxes from Astoria mills,
while they are unable to get supplies
from San Francisco box factories, locat­
ed, in some instances, not more than loo
yards away from the cannery. This is
due to the fact that there are no rail con­
nections between the San Francisco
canneries and factories, while all the
canneries have sidetracks from the
Southern Pacific railroads, over which
boxes from outside points are hauled.
The Clatsop mill company has a big
force of men at work manufacturing
boxes, and the daily output is about
4000. All boxes not required for the
local demand are shipped south to the
bay city.
As a result of the condition of the Sau-
Francisco lumber market, all the legging
camps in Pacific county. Wash., with
four exceptions, have been closed down,
and one of the four is expected to sus­
pend operations within thirty days.
Another cause for the close-down is that
A. M. Simpson, the millionaire lumber
dealer, is building a new sawmill, and
there will be lighter demand for logs un­
til this mill is finished.
The closing
down of the Washington camps will
throw out of employment for a time a
large number of men.
It is thought that the lumber industry
will be much more active in Clatsop and
Tillamook counties when the Nehalem
river is improved. The settlers have re­
monstrated against the leasing of the
river to the Wheeler lumber company,
but President Vosberg and Attorney Ma­
gers will personally call on the farmers
and endeavor to show them thst the its-
piovement proposed by the company
will be a good thing for everybody con­
cerned. The extension of the Northern
into that country is now regarded as a
matter of much uncertainty.
