Thero are people who drive every
day on the public roads and still do
not know which way to turn when
meeting a rig or auto or in driving
around a rig. The law has made pro
vision for certain ways to turn in
meeting or passing a rig or machine
and it would bo well to pay attention
to these rules and perhaps at some
time it might sbvo serious trouble
When meeting a vehicle you should
always turn to tho right and give tho
other man half the road and if your
load is light and the man whom you
meet is driving with a heavy load it
would show your gentlemanly man
ners to let him have the best or all of
the road. When driving up behind
a rig and wishing to pass it always
turn to the left. If an auto comes up
behind you and by a toot of the horn
asks you to give a part of the road
turn to tho right and lot him pass
you on the left. These are ruleB
that everybody should know but we
often meet people on tho roads who I
appear to bo totally ignorant of those
laws, as they fail to observo -thorn.
BOYS' WHEAT CONTEST
Five thousand Ohio bovs are want
ed to enter a one-acre wheat growing
contest this year in Ohio. The great
success of the boys' corn growing con
test has encouraged the Ohio State
Board of Agriculture to promote the
same contest in the growing of wheat.
The Ohio State Millers' Association
and Ohio grain dealers, many Ohio
bankers and business men, have
pledged support to the enterprise.
Many lessons and valuable exporioncea
are being gained from tho boys' con-
toat on corn.
Ohio can make a great wheat state.
The wheat failure this year is no sign
that a good crop cannot be grown next
The prize to be offered to the boy
who wins in each county is a free trip
to the Nation's capital. Every farm
er's son should get ready to go into this
flghu. It costs nothing to try. The
wheat will grow and tho crop will
ripen while the boy is in school.
Meetings will be held in every
oounty in Ohio to arrange the Retails
of this contest. For further informa
tion address the secretary, A. P. San
dles, Columbus, Ohio.

Portland had made great promises Seattle newspaper man) riding In a
of entertainment and tho first sight carriage so that ho could be scon.
of the city as given tho visitor was
onough to convince him that tho
promises wero toi bo fulflllcd.
As an indication of tho harmony
existing among'the people of the city
it is only necessary to stato that not
only did the Portland Elks make an
effort to entertain tho visitors, but
every other class of people 1m tho
city, regardless of whether he was
an Elk or not, united in tho grand
effort to havo Portland appear at tho
best advantage In order that the vis
itor might go away favorably im
pressed with tho city, its people and
its advantages and possibilities. This
unity or effort and Harmonious ac
tion was very noticeable, particularly
by a Perrysburg man, who never ob
serves any such sentiment In his
The Elks and their ladles wero
met at the trains and escorted and
conveyed in automobiles to their ho
tels, and from the moment of their
arrival in Portland to the time of
departure they were given every pos
siblo courtesy. Autos wero In wait
ing on every corner and street and
tho official badge was all that was
necessary to secure the use of these
machines for tours of tho city and
surrounding country. The most prom
inent and wealthy citizens of Port
land gave the use of their autos and
their own time in escorting the vis
itors about and showing them tho
beauties of the city.
On the second night of the session
the people were given the pleasure
of seeing ono of the finest electrical
parades ever given in this country,
many of tho floats' costing thousands
of dollars in building and represent
ing tho highest typo of skill and ar
tistic ability in the arrangement.
These floats were built upon trolly
cars and tho parade was along the
trolly lines, the power of locomotion
and tho current for illumination be
ing furnished by the trolly wire. The
second parade, two days later, was
the official parade of the visiting
Elks, and was three hours in passing
the reviewing stand. In it wero rep
resentatives from lodges In every
Life Insurance Agent Charged with
Embezzlement of Funds.
Another of the features of enter
tainment given by Portland was a
salmon barbecue held at a park on
as Island in tho Willamette river, on
which occasion over 20,000 Elks and
Elkessos enjoyed a splendid fish din
ner. The salmon (three feet In
length) wero all baked on planks In
a specially arranged oven and served
with all the necessary side dishes
with coffee and buttermilk. Tho
tables were so arranged that every
body was served at about the same
time each person helping himself
to all lie wished. There was no
rushing or crowding, as ample sup
plies had been prepared and when
these people left the park on their
return to Portland they learned that
G0.000 lbs. (live weight) of fish had
been used in tho preparation of that

Leaving Portland our next stop
was at San Francisco, and tho scen
ery along the Northern Pacific is
very grand and interesting, as the
road winds its way along the moun
tains, through tho canons, and over
precipices that look so dazzllngly
beautiful, so seductively charming
and yet so fearfully dangerous as to
make tho passenger close his eyes
and wonder how long it would take
to strike bottom in case the train did
run over the edge of tho precipice.
Beautiful Mount Shasta, that per
petually snow capped peak, is with
us for tho entire day. We catch a
glimpse of its snow top early, and as
th6 train twists and turns on its way
through canon and over 'mountain
cliff, that same old white cap is seen
from one Bide of the car and then the
other, until finally after a whole day
of watching and admiring the majes
tic pile, we draw near its base and
tho train stops at the Shasta springs
