was a member of the M. E. church of

The ball and oyster supper given by
the Odd Fellows' lodge in their hall in
this city on Thursday evening last was
a grand success in every: respect and
largely attended by people from all
parts of the county. The total receipts
were about $105.00 and after deducting
expenses the entertainment netted the
lodge a little over $20.00. For its splen
did success much credit is due Mr. N.
E. Churchill, chairman of the commit
tee of arrangements, who spared no
labor but worked continuously from
the time he was J appointed § until the
last detail of preparation was complete.
He is certainly right at home in this
kind of work and richly deserves the
thanks tendered him by every mem
ber of the order.
A Lemon on Good Roads.
"The story of a small town \mV this
state, twelve miles from Philadelphia,"
says the Long -Branch Record, "forms
a fitting object lesson on > good roads.
In consequence of the bad roads the
wagon makers thereabouts built four
horse wagons to carry fifty-five bushel
baskets as a maximum-: load; which
was i regarded : as ? a heavy one. y- Real
estate has gone begging for years; there
was no market for it.' It had been im
possible to settle up estates, because no
buyers could be found for the land. A
few years ago the people of the com
munity woke S up. ) The I town issued
$40,000 worth of bonds and applied the
proceeds to building good roads. Asa
result the wagon makers in the ■ vicini
ty are making two-horse wagons to
carry fifty-five bushel baskets, but loads
made of 90 to - 125 7, bushel baskets, and
still the loads are not regarded as
heavy. Two horses are able to do more
work than four horses formerly could
do, and with greater ease. On the old
roads-two men and four horses with a
wagon weighing 1,900 pounds could
take two and a half tons of produce to
market and bring back an equal weight
of fertiliser, making one trip a day.
Now; an the good roads, one man with
two horses and • wagon weighing
2,800 pounds takes four tons to market,
bringing back an equal weight, mak
ing four trips a day." * - •

'-.>;.- East Snund.
A Notable Dramatic Event.
East Sound has had a decided sensa
tion in a theatrical way and Orcas
island has had a sort of a social earth
quake during the holidays on account
of it. Outside of the large cities where
the theatre is an established institution
we have seen nothing in our experi
ence to compare in excellence and
good acting with the amateur troupe
which has just given two performances
in Odd Fellows' hall at East Sound.
The first was on • Tuesday evening,
Dec. 29. and in spite of bad weather
the hall was full, and so generally good
was the acting and the plays so amus
ing that there was a general demand
for its repetion on New Years Eve.,
when the performers were greeted by
another ciowded house and with in
creased marks of approval by the au
dience. The plays were of great merit
and have been acted on the boards of
London, Boston and other theatres.
The first one given was "My Turn
Next," the performance lasting nearly
an hour, and the second was "Turn
Him Out." requiring about the same
time, and while every line of them was
bright and amusiug, the capital acting,
of all the troupe brought out the ridicu
lous and funny. points in fine shape,
and the audience were constantly con
vulsed with shouts of laughter on
every seat in the house.
The star actor was Dr. Hogg, a resi
dent physician of East Sound, and he
was simply brilliant. As a profession
al he would be a auccess where. He
assumes a character with complete
abandon, and by . his inimitable, and
bright acting assisted by a wonderful
facial expression brings down the house
every time. The subordinate/charac
ters were excellent, every one of them:
the scenery was good, the dress and
wigs were partly ;, obtained from the
Seattle theatre, the I music was bright
and altogether no trouble or expense
was spared to give the people of Orcas
island the best performance ever wit
nessed in San Juan county. Besides
Dr. Hogg, the other performers were
Mr. Chalmers, Mr. Wallis, Mr. v: Gow,
Mrs. Wallis, Miss Waldrip and : Miss
Geoghegan. We understand that the
proceeds were given to the church at
East ■ Sound after deducting ; the ex

A Big Card For San Joan County.
The following is an extract taken
from a letter received by Mr. A. F.
Shadel, of Lopez, from Mr. William
Henry Maule, of Philadelphia, import
er, grower and dealer in choice garden
seeds:;,'; &&&%'£
Philadelphia, Pa., Dec. 28, 1896.
Mr. A. F. Shadel, ,
Lopez Island,
Dear Sir: —
"We are glad to inform you that
you have secured the prize offered for the
bush of Nott's Excelsior Peas, containing
the largest number of pods, sent us the
past season; and we herewith enclose, as
a New Year's gift, draft on the Third Na
tional Bank, of this city, for $50.00, amount
of said prize." Yours truly,
Wm. Henry Maule
This makes the fourth or fifth prize
given by this house to residents of San
Juan county, two or three being se
cured by East Sound parties. Consid
ering the fact that these prize offers
are made so that any section in the
United States or Canada can enter into
the competition, we consider it a big
card for our county, and one that
should not be overlooked. Our soil
and climate is particularly well adapted
to the growing of fruits and garden
truck, as well as hay, oats, wheat, etc.
Mr. Shadels' winning this prize of $50
in a competition against several hun
dred from all sections of this country
and Canada not only speaks highly
for him as a seed grower but for San
Juan county as a good pllace for those
contemplating settling in Washington
to keep their eye on. There is plenty
of choice farming land to be had in this
section at moderate cost and anyone,
coming here will find it to be the choice
garden spot of the world. : ~o\-
