THE ST. JOHNS REVIEW

In Saint Johns, Oregon, ns mnll Matter
of the second class under the Act of Con

Subscription prleo $1.00 par year.
Some exceptions have been ta
ken to the comment made on At
torney Perkins' article in last
week's Review concerning Wil
lamette boulevard, and it has
even been chawed that wo have
favored those contenders for a
100 foot street. This is a mis
take. We have favored a 100
foot street no more than wc have
favored an 80 foot street in the
Uoview. In fact, there are sov
oral reanons why wo would be in-
clinod to the latter more than the
former, provided it was m con
cord with the records. The
comment last week was based
itiion the nrciiumntinn that Mr.
Perkins stated the simple facts
in the case without exaggeration.
If ho erred, as some would have
us believe, the comment neces
sarily erred also, remaps no
comment should have been made,
since the (iitestion is of such del
icacy. However, it was not our
intention to oflond or "butt in,"
but rather to note the obvious re
sult that Mr. Perkins' communi-

The Best Light
At The Lowest Cost
ELECTRIC LIGHT is tho most suitable for homes,
offices, shops and other places needing light.
Electricity can be used in any quantity, large
or small, thereby furnishing any required
amount of light. Furthermore, electric lamps
can be located in any place, thus affording any
desired distribution of light.
No other lamps possess these qualifications, there
fore it is not surprising that electric lamps are
rapidly replacing all others in modern establishments.
