for Liborty district No. 71, was $10,-

Portland school teachers who had the
nerve to get out and pick loganberries
and incidentally getting in touch with
nutur.y as it is seen this far up iu the
Wilulinotto valley, will give an enter
tainment Saturday evening of this week
at the CervaiB City Hall. The circulars
announcing the event are as follows:
"Ewryoue come and see how willing
the Honor Uiumls are to 'rough it' and

Thin woden boxes are not - adapted
for the sending of packages to Franc,
postoffiee authorities announce. The
weight of parcels for overseas is limit
ed to seven pounds and the box approv
ed by tho postoffiee should be strong
corrugated card board. If the articles
sent permit, it is even safe to wrap
them in heavy paper, sacking or cloth.
This order has been issued by the post
office as many of the wooden boxes
were broken before arriving at destin
ations. Tho suggestion it made that even
if addressed to the soldier on the At
lantic coast, it is best to pack the ar
ticles in such a manner that they may
be sent ov.er seas. If a package fails to
reach the soldier here, it is sent to
address on the other side.

somewhat larger than the general im

Salem presents , the most lonesome
July 4th appearance that has probably
ever been known, even to the oldest in
habitant. The patriotic spirit and the
feelirfg thatjiuo one should work on the
Fourth seems to have caught on here
and not even a meat market, grocery
store or tho stores that hold out for a
little early morning-business were found
to be open. Even the Elks club and
tho Commercial club presented locked
doors, somothing unheard of on any
national holiday. As one proprietor said,
all the boys in the store seemed to think
they should have a full holiday and it
was thought best to give it.

FOREST FIRES RAGE
IN COAST REGION
Holdings of Large Interest
Are Threatened In Tilla
mookCoimty Forest f iree now raging in Washing
ton and Tillamook counties, along the
railroad from Hillsboro to Tillamook,
may endanger a large amount of spruce
timber in that region, according to
State Forester Elliott- He my if an
east wind should come up it would be
very difficult to keep the flames from
sweeping clear to the coast, burning a
swath right through the spruce belt.
Fanned by a stiff breeze the fires
have developed until they now menace
a large timber area, aceording to the
reports received by Mr. Elliott.
The fires are near Euright, Timber,
Seofield and Cochran. The biggest fire
is near Cochran. It was practically un
der control Tuesday afternoon, but that
evening a wind set it to raging again.
As a result of the long dry spoil,
small forest firca are being reported
in many seations and the state forester
expressed grave cocern over the situ
ation. He said also that ithe timber owners
in the district 'where the Coehrfcn and
other fires are burning along the rail
road line have not organized this year
for the protection of their holdings,
and there has been a Jack of coopera
tion on their part.
Among the timber holdings which
are threatened are those of the Ham
mond Lumber company, Portland Tim
ber company, Summit Timber copany
and the J. W. and J. H. Cochran hold
ings. A number of small fires have also
been reported in Polk county.

The largest transaction ever matle by
an autombilo agency in the stato of
Oregon was that of Vick Bros., when
they contracted with Honry Ford for the
shipment of 1,000 Ford tractors. The
deal really means the sale to Vick Bros,
of three quarters of a million dollar
worth of tractors to be shipped within
the next year. It is figured that it will
sell for about $900, and on this, basis,
Vick Bros, and the ageneies they es
tablish will figure on selling $900,000
worth of tractors during the - coming
year. The "Fordson" will plow about
eight acres a day and can be driven
by any one familiar with the driving
