COLUMBIA COUNTY DAY. Thore Is some talk of changing the ormer plans relative to Columbia 'ounty Day, and hold the big get ogother picnic at Ilulnler rather .ban ut Clatskanle, for the reason that purtles from both ends of the county could more easily meet at that place and return the same day by means of transportation other ! than automobile. Thus enabling the viewing of the highway to Rainier. Citizens of Rainier have stated thoy would be very glad of the oppor tunity to entertain the whole county on HiIb day if such arrangements and plans were made and that they would put their best foot forward and ex tend the glad hand to every man, woman and child who would come within the gates. At a meeting of the citizens of this city laBt week, they exprossed themselves very much in favor of the movement and would support It wherever It should be held.

The story goes on to tell the winnings of many Individuals, the routes taken to get to California, the Vials crossing the mountains, and trouble with the In ulanl and Mexicans, and ends up with Uie f0iiowlng paragraph: "A word of advice to those who are going. Look before you leap, and put just as much faith in the major ity of the guide books, so called, that are published, as you do In the 'Ara bian Nights Entertainment,' tor most of them are merely catch-penny con cerns, written to order, by 'tarry at home travelers,' who imagine their . . , ... lucis, anu who uon i snow uiree per cent more about California than they do about the moon. And above all. make up your mind not to be very sadly disappointed In case your share of the gold should not much exceed a Philadelphia wagon-load.

The Columbia River bann ing & Produce company are loading a car of canned beans and will commence loading another Monday of next week, which have been sold to a large shipper. This sale of the product of the cannery, as well as a good share of the future output, makes a very bright future for the cannery and spells success. - Thousands of dollars will be brought to St. Helens this year, which, had it not been for this local cannery, would have either not been realized or would have gone elsewhere. The rush of work the past week, has caused a part of the force at the cannery to put in several hours overtime, the first four days of the week, 12,000 cans were canned daily. Manager Rosasco stated, that from present indications it will be necessary to enlarge the capacity of the plant be fore the season of 1916. SPECIAL MEETING MONDAY NIGHT At Commercial Club Rooms Com mittee to ReiMirt Plans to Es tablish Creamery. An invitation is extended by the St. Helen 8 Commercial Club for every one interested In establishing a creamery in this section to be pres ent at a special meeting next Mon day night at the club rooms In the City Hall. The committee, composed of K. F. Larson, A. H. Tarbell, Joe Erickson, P. C. Jacobson, Ray Tar bell and Fred Briggs, elected at a meeting held at Warren Tuesday night, August 3rd, will report as to their success in securing promise of stock and support of the farmers in their respective communities. Several of the committee have made known that prospects are very favorable, that the farmers of the Warren, Yankton, Bachelor Flat and nearby sections are very enthusiastic over the matter. From a rough es timate by one committeeman three hundred cows can be secured from these places. Until time of going to press, committeemen who were se lected to interview farmers In the Deer Island section had not been heard from, but sentiment is strong for a creamery in that neighborhood and It is thought one hundred and fifty cows caa be counted on. By Monday night these committeemen will be able to make a detailed re- rort of the stock that can be secured end how many cows have been prom ised from each and every section. It is hoped that managers from several co-operative creameries throughout the state will be present and lend their aid in launching the movement. S. L. Moorehead, editor of the Junction City newspaper tor twenty years, whilo in the city the past week, In conversation with the Mist man, stated that in his opinion and from the experience gained from their institution, a co-operative or- ganlzaton was by far the best method ot organizing. That the farmers were well satisfied with the plan at Junc tion City was attested by the fact that the creamery had been a great success from the start and business was constantly increasing. Junction City being only fifteen miles from Eugene, the organization has much the same conditions to contend with as Is to be found here. A Commercial Club dinner will be served at the Orcadta hotel at 35 cents a plate. POMONA GRANGE. Clatskanle, Aug. 12. (Special to Mist). The Columbia County Po mona Grange mot In its 60th quar terly session Aug. 7, 1916, at the hall of Clatskanle Grange, No. 321, Worthy Master Lovelace, presiding. The attendance was fair, but the officers failed to measure up to Grange standard, there being but five ot them present. NO. 35 Ill E AT GEARHART BANQUET COX- KINKS HIS TALK TO HO AD WORK IN THIS COUNTY. STATE MUST FBU HIGHWAY Asks for Aid Prom Bute Talk Had Telling Effect County Roads to lie Improved Coming Year. After two state officials had been Invited by Chairman Julius L. Meier to address the gathering at the ban quet held ut Gearhart Thursday night last, County Judge A. L. Clark was called upon for a speech. Not following in the path of the former gentlemen, who rambled over Btale state affairs, Mr. Clark proceeded to business and to make every lick count for the county. He conceived that there was never a more opportune time, after having OUNIY 1 CLARK SPEAKS Just made the trip of 125 miles over the highway, to place the matter ot ' road building in Columbia county before the Highway and Advisory board. And, if the word of some ten or twelve of his hearers can be count ed for anything, he fully filled his mission. He started from the first, and showed where in the past year the people of Columbia county had la bored under a heavy tax, where they had spent every cent that they could spend on the highway; that the coun ty had at one time become almost divided over the issue and that it would be impossible and impractica ble for the people another year to raise another cent for additional work on the highway. That all money available the coming year would be placed by the Court on county roads, which had been neg lected the past year In an endeavor to get the main highway completed. He went over the work and showed hem every section that vould not be completed this vear ?.od what work would be needed. The total of which was that there Is much work yet to lie done and which will take almost as much capital as has already been expended, and that if the highway Is to be completed and the state wants it finished the way it should be, she will have to come to the aid ot the county. He brought out the fact that con trary to the work on the upper high way, no attempt had been made to bring out the artistic side of the highway, that it was a matter of getting the road through in the best possible manner with what means the Court had at their command. Mr. Clark received many congratu lations upon the manner in which he placed the matter before the body and was loudly applauded upon leav ing the platform. The Pomona Grunge exemplified the Subordinate degrees in the morn ing for Clatskanle Grange. Most of the Subordinate Granges reported in good condition and thriving. Three did not report. A resolution commending the County Court for its action in erect ing buildings on the County Poor farm and recommending that all re ceiving county aid be removed to such buildings, was adopted. A resolution was passed favoring the removal of some of the restric tions on women's suffrage at school meetings. The Invitation ot Yankton Grange, No. 321, to hold the next quarterly meeting with them Nov. 6, 1916, was accepted. A vote ot appreciation was extend ed to Clatskanle Grange for the ex cellent entertainment, both physical and mental, given Pomona Grange. In the evening a class of five made their way through all difficulties to the Court ot Pomona and were re warded by instruction in the mys teries ot her degree. F. W. ROBERTS, Secy, pro tenj.
