It is said that about 5,000 persons were out to see this extremely perilous feat and a big per cent of them would not pay the admission fee demended, and as therd was no way of keeping them off the domain adpacent they were dead heads at this big show.

Ray Myrick was taken to jail in Everett. HARMON PUTS IN "TINE WINDOW The Harmon Company keeping tab on current events, have had a deco- rative window this week that is very unique in its style and entirely apro- pos of the 'big event of the week, the graduating of the Class of 1926 from the Monroe Union High. The cen- tral attraction in this decoration is the big wheel of fortune upon wh[cti hang photos of all the members of the class, and as the wheel goes around each member's picture is brought into full view of the onlook- er at the bottom of the wheel which revolves just slow enough to follow the pictures around the rim. To the left of this big wheel are the road signs• One shows the starting point and then are the sig, ns "success" and "failure". A chart is in the center of the picture On which is a fine scroll of words of wisdom counsel- ling the new voyagers as to their course• Other decorations make up the picture and help out admirably in the entire Dictnrlzhtion.

The purpose of these meetings is to stuly the problems of the dairyman 'ight on the ground and' to point out some cf the things that different dairymen of the county are doing that is proving satisfactory and of a help to them. That more atten- tion should be given to feeding and especially to the growing and feed- ing of roughage is pretty generally admitted' by all that are interested in the dairy business. The meeting places on this tour bane been so )lanned that certain things in con- nection with the growing of differ- eat roughage crops and the haudling cf these roughage crops will be touch- ed at each one of them.

The services were held in the Community Hall at 10:30 o'clock and a crowd of more than 200 were present to hear Rev. A. Earl Lee deliver the Memorial Day ad- dress. Hi'z theme was very appro- oriate, dealing wi the, awful cost of war which demands such a heavy payment in human life. Significant about the ad'dress was the fact that the Civil War has been replaced as a theme by th'e recent World War. E L. Billings, one of the old veter- ans of '61 spoke a few words which were very appropriate coming from a Civil War veteran who with one exception, that being Mr. Daher- ty of Duvall was the only other vet- eran there• After services in the hall were concluded the service at the Odd Fel- lows Cemetery were held. The mili- tary recognition which is a part of all Memorial Day services was car- ried out by the ,Legion boys who were garbed in the regulation army uniform. The Scandinavian Ladies' Aid will meet in the Swedish church base- men, June 10th at 2 o'clock in the afternoon• Mrs. John Carlson will be hostess. Everybody welcome. GEO. WAGNER WILL BUILD FINE HOME George Wagner, retired lumber- man and' logger, who has operated here for a number of years has planned to. build a fine home in Mon- roe. work upon which is to begin within a very short time and comple- tion thereof to be reached early in the fall. Mr. Wagner has recently purchased a two acre tract of land from Mrs. E. P: Shipp just west of where her home stands for this put pose. What the plans are to be is not vet decided', but an architect will be here this week, perhaps today, to go over the matter wit Mr. and Mrs. Wa.gner. The cost of this home will, we understand, run well over the $10,000 mark, probably $15,000, and will be a splendid addition to the city of Monroe. Mr. Wagner was. specu- lating for a long time what he would' do, make his home in Monroe or re- move to some other clty, rand at length has decided in favor of the place where he has been so long and where he has )een so eminently suc- cessful in a business way. Monroe is getting many substantial imnrove- ments this year, the new R. J. Stretch home going up at this time l and now comes the new Wagner home on a very fine location and which wi|l be a very fine show place at the western entrance to the-city of Monroe.

The Monitor editor and wife, the latter's sister, Mrs. Gee. F. Harley, and K. W. Reardon returned from a 900 mile auto drive at two o'clock Tuesday, June 1st, a'nd' which begar at noon the previ cus Friday. Fri- day afternoon a drive was made over the Sunset Highway as far as Yah- ima whcre the party tied up for the night. The road over the Snoqual- mie Pass is one lively boulevard for every mile a:d good for the speet limit at every point if such a thing could be done. It has been raining and the road was a little too damp, otherwise it was perfect. Short stops were made in Cle Elum and at Ellensburg, and the drive over the new highway between Ellensburg and Yakima is a remarkable way. It curves with the Yakima River for miles and the scenery along it is something of a marvel• At Y.akima we met the Beck family.

SANDER The funeral of Mrs. Georgia San- ders. whose death was mentioned' in brief in these columns last week, was held last Friday afternoon• The ceremony was held at the Purdy Funeral Home and was largely at- tended. The Rebekahs had charge of the services at the home and which .were led by Miss Vanasdlen, high official of the local chapter. The music was also furnished by the Re- bekah society and was very fine and the entire service quite inspiring.; Beautiful flowers were in profusion with Dr. Wallace Pratt, an old ae- quantance on the east side, and who is holding quite a prominent place in the medical profession of thai; city and county. The drive from Walla Walla to Portland began about two o'clock Sunday afternoon and The Dalles reached that night about nine o'clock. The way led on to Pendleton, forty miles from Wall Walla, and you make the trip on a paved road through an immensely rich section of wheat and fruit and pass thru several thriving little twns along that way.
