The village council very patrioticly responded to the call -for Red Cross funds at its regular ses sion Monday night bv voting a month ly contribution of $10, and among all citizens who are in sympathy with their government the baord's action meets with genuine approval. The motion was carried unaiumously. Portland's total Red Cross pledges now amount of $180 per month, or within $20 of the amount asked for.

Fire Chief Dowell raced up in his -big red car. Firemen swarmed up the escapes of the big building where the fire was supposed to be, and every one keenly awaited some thrills. Thereupon Mayor Baker, with Governor Withy- combe at his side, climbed to a due eminence and informed the firemen and crowd of the real object of the gathering, a band of nearly ono hun dred pieces assisting in keeping it together. It was at this meeting that Oregon reached and passed her mini mum quota for the loan. The cat settled herself luxuriously in front of the kitchen range and be gan to purr.
