THE YOUTH'S COMPANION. 144 Berkeley Street, Boston, Mass. A Splendid Brand of Butter. T. S. Townsend of the Townsend Creameiy company of Portland was in Hood River a few days ago, looking after the butter and cheese trade of that company. While here he arranged with the McOuire Bros, to handle and push the sale of the Townsend butter. This brand of butter is "White Clo ver," and T. S. Townsend made the re mark that there was just one thing that every person in his employ had to do, and that was to keep the quality of the "White Clover" brand at the very highest standard. He also said that lie could attribute his success in business to his continuous efforts in this direc tion, stating that his company would guarantee that any one buying the "White Clover" brand would always have good butter to spread on his bread. From the large amount of this butter that the McGuire Bros, are dis posing of, Mr. Townsend'g statements concerning the "White Clover" are evidently correct. A Mammoth Holiday Issue. The December Delineator (Christmas number) represents the hiah watermark of beauty and utility, and possibly of circulation also, in a woman s magazine, having a first edition of more than a million copies.

In addition to ex quisite color work, clever fiction and strikingly illustrated articles, the num ber includes a display of charming winter fashions covering 42 pages, letters from the foreign fashion centers and illustrated articles on the fashionable fabrics and trimmings, mil linery, etc. There are many beautiful art features, among them four pages in colors representing babyhood, childhood, girlhood and motherhood the work of Bernard J. Rosen meyer. For the child ren there are entertainining games and stories, and for the housewife many practical suggestions in cookery and other departments of the home, for the Christmas reason. New Railroad Time Schedule. The time card of the O. R. & N. will undergo a decided change this month. It is the intention to shorten the time be tween Portland and Ogden.

No. 1, arrive at Portland at 6 p. m. instead of 4 :30. No. 5 arrive at Portland at 9:30 a. m. instead of 10:30. This will bring the east bound trains to Hood River a half hour earlier than the present schedule. The 'morning train, No. 5, will be an hour earlier, while No. 1 will arrive about 3:30 instead of 2:05. The best feature will be the earlier ar rival of the Portland morning paper.
