being printed in alburn "form, and ?con
tains about sixty pages of Reading, mat
ter descriptive of. Marion and adjoining
couitfies, illustrated throujrhout Jwiih
superb half-tone pictures. Amo?ig other
interesting features ot "the annual are
photographs of the various state in
stitutions? state officers and Western
Oregon scenery. Two pages are de
voted to a write-up of Dallas, with cuts
of Polk county's -new courthouse La

duced to do so by his mother, who re
sides in one of Portland's suburb.
He ran away again one day last week,
but was caught and put in the room
