NOTED TRAVELER AND
LECTURER COMING
Harry W. Stone, of Port­
land, Y.M.C.A. secretary,
educationalist and national
Christian leader is to speak
here. The people of Verno­
nia are to have the rare
opportunity of hearing this
well-known man of affairs
in a series of two addresses
at the Evangelical church
on Sunday, Aug. 27. The
morming address will be
given at the time of the
church service. In view of
the time necessary for Mr.
Stone to cover the morning
lecture, which is, “Hot
Spots in Europe Today,”
the service will begin at
10:45.
The evening address will
be, “The Religious Aspects
in Russia.” It will be given
at 8 o’clock. This address
has some very startling re­
velations relative to the re­
ligious conditions in Russia.
They are authentic because
they are the observations of
Mr. Stone himself.
Please be on hand early
at each servioe, so as not
to miss anything and invite
your family and neighbors
to come with you. This will
be the opportunity for you
to learn many things about
present day conditions in
Europe which may have
been puzzling to you. Op­
portunity will be given for
questions from the audience.
D. R. Kauffman, Pastor.
Men from the fire association,
the Oregon American Lumber
company and the city fire de­
partment combined in fighting a
brush fire on the O. A. hill at the
head of B street Friday night.
O. A. amid city hose, and the as­
sociation booster pump were used
in extinguishing the flames. Sev­
eral loggers also helped in trail­
ing the fire.
It is thought that the fire was
set through carelessness.
Mr. and Mrs. Ray Charlewworth
of Toledo visited at the home of
their son, Wilburn Charlesworth,
Saturday and Sunday. Ray
Charlesworth, Jr., who has been
visiting his brother here for three
weeks, returned with them.

Time for renewing drivers’
licenses will expire August 31.
Applications from here will have
to be sent in by mail, the last
visit of an examiner to Vernonia
for this month having been Tues­
day. Blanks may be secured at
the Eagle office.
According to figures from the
secretary of state’s office more
than 40 per cent of the applica­
tions for renewals are received by
mail through the main operators’
division office in Salem and ap­
proximately 25 per cent come in
from the travelling examiners.
The remaining 35 per cent of the
applicants make personal contact
through the Salem or Portland
offices.

The Hodges mill, idle for sev­
eral years, was leased yesterday
by Judge W. A. Harris, owner,
to F. J. Tousley and A. E. Tous-
ley. Work of reconditioning it
will start about Sept. 1, and will
require, it is estimated, about
one month. Mr. Tousley’s inten­
tion is to start operations Octo­
ber 1 or sooner if possible.
The mill will employ about 15
men, according to present plans.
Timber will be cut from the pro­
perty of Judge Harris and of
ranchers, with possibility of pur­
chases from logging companies.
Archie Adams will have charge
of the logging.
