of city bonds. The measure came
up through the initiative petition,

'ors on cake and jelly. The judges were
iMr. and Mrs. L. P. Harrington of Sa
lem. ! In the eveninsr. in connection with
I the fair, a spelling contest between thej
ll'our schools represented, took place.
'Three hundred words were pronounced:
iby Mr. Fawk of Salem. Only one htm- j
jdred words were given out for one con-1
test, and during the time the judges:
'county superintendent and Co. Super
visor 'Smith were preparing their de
cision the audience was treated to some
very good music, a solo sung by Mrs.
Allenian of Woudbtirn was very mucn
enjoyed and she was recalled.
Beatrice Aimmtiidson of the Scotts
Mills school won first honors in the
children's spelling contest. Little Myr
