ST. HELENS MIST. FRI DAY. APRIL 14. 1916
CORRESPONDENCE
HOULTON.
The office ot the Columbia Herald
moved into new quarters Friday of
last week and now occupy the
Schoonover building. Larger and
better accommodations for the plant
have thus been secured.
Mr. Chas. White shipped another
carload of cattle to Portland on Sat
urday last. To the uniuitiated it
seems queer that the fat cattle and
hogs are shipped from this part of
the county to the Portland market
and then our retail meat men buy
from Portland wholesale men and re
ship the same or other meat back to
this city and retail to patrons. Per
haps it is done to give the poor rail
road corporation some business. Why
cannot our retail men buy direct
from producers and thus save two
freight charges and a middleman's
commission, which is in the end paid
by the patrons of our home markets?
The minister of the M. E. church
enjoyed a fine auto trip on Thurs
day, when he accompanied N. A.
Perry to Portland in his fine Cadil
lac. They left Houlton about 10 a.
m., went by the way of Bachelor
Flat, crossing the river at Linnton
and taking the winding road up river
to the city, thus getting a beautiful
view of river, city and the Jefferson
High School, which is one of the
finest educational plants in the state.
G. Chambers, who lately returned
from North Carolina, has moved into
the house recently vacated by E.
Payne, and is again in partnership
with his brother, George, in the retail
meat busness.
Wm. Goodman arrived in Houlton
from Northern Michigan on Wednes
day of last week. He reports his
father as no better. Mr. Goodman,
senior, has now been confined to bed
for over fifteen months with inflam
matory rheumatism.
Prof. Brehaut, accompanied by
Mrs. Brehaut and Miss Weist, one of
I ho grade teachers in the Houlton
school, spent Saturday ami Sunday
with friends in Portland, returning
on Sunday evening's train.
The L. A. S. will hold their semi
monthly sale of pure home baked
food on Saturday afternoon. The
proceeds are to apply on the church
improvements.
The M. E. Sunday school is prepar
ing an Easter program, to be given
on Easter in the M. E. church. Miss
Nettie A. Snyder has charge of the
arrangements and training of the
littlo ones.
A novel way for the collection of
delayed accounts has been discovered
by a party in this city. Persons in
terested may learn the particulars by
applying to the firm of W. and ,
Houlton, Oregon.
E. Payne has greatly Improved the
property recently purchased of N. A.
Perry, by underpinning the house,
grubbing out the brush and other
wise fixing up, making a very pleas
ant home for his family

Mr. Weist had moved his household
goods the day before and had started

a few years ago with his parents, and

the crushing out of his young life.
