Miss Emma Morton ot Portland is n visitor at tho hemo of Mr. nnd Mrs. S. C. Morton. Miss Morton is a photographer of recognized ability nnd makes a specialty of "home photography."

Hoefler, the Astoria candy king, was evidently feeling good ov er the landing ot a fat order for Centennial chocolates and was in i hurry to -get home Tuesday. Any way, he was feeding the gas wagon a mouthful of gas and she was reeling oft the miles in a way that was un satisfactory to tne speea cop. uesuit: Mr. Hoefler handed over 30 cash bond to the Judge and forgot to come back for trial. J. D. Gray, father of Von A. Gray of this city, died at his residence In Portland Tuesday night. Deceased had lived in Oregon for a number of years and had many friends in this vicinity.

The sympathy of a host of friends is ex tended to Mr. Gray and his family in their bereavement. Absence of sunshine and intermit- . lent showers of rain, which at times almost reached the point of deluges, hate i interfered to prevent the Colum bia County fair from being the best tt.at has ever been attemntd h crganization. ' ' The fair Itself ia nhn tha aue, but the weather has been so dls grecable that the attendance Is far telow expectations and what i , u have been had thnra hum onn.. instead of rain. Tha attendanm hp. been bout 600 for each nt h fi.. two days. w1?9 'alrvwa8 tormalyy openea Wednesday by the fair officials, and the forenoon was given over Iifi to a street concert by Campbell's American band. This oraaniimii one of the best on the coast, is a u.omou aauuion to tne program for the three days. Two lady vocalists, Mrs. Alleman and Miss Jennio Clow Nelson, are with the band ti..i. singing has been a delight to the mu- biu ,overs in attendance at the fair. iu nig pavunons are round a fine ex hlbition of the varied products of Columbia county, fruits, vegetables and grains being attractively display ed. Of Jellies, pickles, and preserves there is a sufficient ply a regiment. The baking and can ning department is in charge of Mrs L. R. Rutherford. The display of needlework Is in charge of Mrs. Fred Trow and is an artistic arrangement of those things most dear to a woman's heart. The school exhibits department is in charge of Supt. Wilkerson and is attracting much attention. The teachers of the county have ontorea heartily into making the school AT. hibit a decided success and it is very gratifying to all concerned to know that the results attained am most satisfctory. Guy Tarbell Is in charea nt tho livestock building. County Aeent Flippin is looking after the dairv In terests, A. L. Morris is in charge of ma agricultural a l vision, and all ot these departments have creddtahln showings on exhibition. Mrs. W. L. Goin Is In chares of tha poultry department and the poultry fancier can be gratified here with a sight of some splenaid specimens of Columbia county fowls. The flower department is nreslded over by Mrs. Martin White and la the beauties of the flower garden Co-. luiuoia coumy also excels. And last but not least In rioint of . importance ot departmental managers - is Mrs. u. ju. lake, who is charged with arranging the baby show. This important event is scheduled for K o'clock a. m. Friday. Today Is Children's Day and the weather man has promised that ol. Jupe Pluvius will behave himself, so it is expected that a large crowd will be inattendance at the fair and that the school children will have com plete charge of everything unless Tom Lovelace insists on keeping the gate. The merry-go-round and also the Ferris wheel, but the youngsters have not enjoyed these devices as they would have enjoyed them had a flood of sunshine instead of rain been pro vided by the weather man. Another attraction of great interest to young and old is Lew Culling' dog and pony show. Culllns has some well trained animals, but like all other depart-; menis connected with the fair the ' state of the weather has made It dif ficult for him to give as creditable an exhibition as he would under more favorable conltions. However, the pony and dog show has done its part in entertaining tho visitors. t ampbell's band nas been anothot great little entertainer, but weather con 1 1 ion a have perhaps somewhat dampened the spirits of that organi zation as well. An especially good musical offering for Thursday was "The Death of Custer" or "Tho Bat tle of the Little Big Horn," by Lee Johnson. And tho trombone boIo. The Old Home Down on the Farm." by Mr. Jessup was a number hlghls ar predated . In short, Campbell has an aggregation of musicians hard to beat. Next week the Mist will give a more detailed account of the fair in the metier of premium awards and special exhibits. RAILROAD WILL TAP COLUMBIA CO. TIMBER The Portland.
