in Petaluma and Point Arena, both
places of which he visited on a

where he began his practice. Dur
ing the World War he entered the
medical corps being stationed at
Savannah, Illinois. His wife pre
ceded him in death on Decemberi
1 12, 1919. He then returned to Ken- ;
newick in 1920 and has resumed his 1
. practice here since that time.

local business channels that has ex

The Port Commissioners have
been developing plans for the ship

year's wheat crop by barge down
the river. Plans were developed to
such a point that buying arrange

the commissioners took up the ques

that in connection with the work
at Homily Rapids it would be nec
essary to blow up the bottom of the
river because of rock tormation. It
was feared that this would tie up
river operations through Homily
Rapids during the creater part of
the summer. The government plans
to improve the work at Celilo which
will close the Celilo canal during
October and November. The com
missioners have decided that It
