In 1855 the Sherwood Broth- ers, Joseph and Warren, came to North Bay and started a sawmill with water power from a small dam on Sherwood Creek, which was operated for ten or more years shipping its lumber and piles by schooner to San Fran- cisco, then booming through the gold discoveries. Joseph was kill- ed rolling logs into the bay in 1373, and Kimball as a small boy remembered the excitemenbwhen the news came to camp of his death. Kimball was the son of Warren Sherwood. who like his brother Joseph, had married an Indian woman from the Skokomish Res- ervation, and following the cus- tom of that day he was born on the Reservation which has ever since been his home. Kimball Sherwood was a kindly man noted for his unfailing good humor, a good citizen, and he had many friends among his white neigh- bors as well as the Indians. In active years he engaged in logging but in later life devoted his work to his farm on the Res- ervation. 2 NEW HOMES TO BE BUILT HERE Building permits for the con- struction of two new Shelton Ihomes. have been issued by City 'Auditor Gordon Hendry. Harold Ahlskog was issued a permit for a $5000 residence to be constructed at 624 Birch street, while City Councilman A. D. Kill- mer obtained a permit for build- ing‘ a new home at Seventh and Franklin street valued at $4000. 15th-Draft Call To 1 Death claimed a real native son of Mason County Tuesday night, one who had spent all his 73 years of life on the Skokomish ReserVation, in the person of Kim— ball Sherwood, who had been in poor health for the past year and died at the Cushman Indian Hos— pital at Tacoma where he had gone for treatment. Funeral services will be held at Witsiers Funeral Home in Shel- ton on Saturday at 1 o’CIOCk. The service will be conducted by Wil- working for Clydc’s Bakery and. Daviscourt’s Bakery. For the past, five and one-half years, he has been established in the bakeryi business in PeEll. Shafer’s Bakery will be located in the Same place as the Shelton! Bakery at 111 Cota Street. The quarters have all been newly painted and decorated and now shelving and display cases have! been installed. Mr. Shafcr has also added to his baking equip-. ment. In addition to a large variety of cakes. pies and other fancy pastry delicacies, Shafer‘s Bakery will feature Al’s Vitality Bread: :1 bread enriched with vitamins and iron as an aid to health and vitality. According to Mr. Shafer he has been developing this bread over a period of some five years, and has finally brought it to the point where it rates with the best bread available. A recent test con- ducted at the Sperry Flour Mills gave Shafer’s bread a rating of 95.5%, which is very high. Mr. Shafer invites the public to 'visit his new store and see the excellent bakery goods on display there.

Helpful Mr. Bear Shakes Apples Down For Cows By Una W'insor Shelton Valley, Oct. 22.

There was the bear up in a tree shak- ing down the fruit. The cows pasturing nearby evidently heard the apples thudding down so hurried up and “snitched” most of them before the bear could clamber dow’n. However, they'kept their distance until the animal,, much mystified at finding so few apples, climbed the tree again. After watch- ing the antics repeated several .times, George dispatched the ' Courthouse Kids Pr Talk of the town today is the KIDDIES PET PARADE which will be held this Saturday start- ing at 10:30 a.m., at the county (please note the (change) with the parade starting at 11 am.

One little girl plans on displaying her pet cat in a doll buggy, still another girl is training her dog to haul a wagon, and so on.

Free Popeye Show Follows Kiddies not having pets are. incidentally in line for prizes if they are costumed, which should be no problem with Hallowe’en around the corner. Every young- ster in the parade with a pet or without, and whether a prize win- ner or not, will be rewarded with a free ticket to the Popeye show, immediately following the parade. Youngsters will have time after the parade to take their pets to their respective homes, as the various animals, cats, dogs, goats, turtles, pigeons, and so on. will not be allowed in the theatre. The youngsters of Shelton and vicinity are planning on having a big time, on Saturday morning, unless it rains in which event the parade will be postponed one week. (Submitted by C. D. Nivison, Torpedoman. first class, U. S. Navy Recruiter, in Shelton each Wednesday). Next Monday, October 27th, the Nation will celebrate the 20th anniversary of Navy Day. Wher- ever the United States Flag flies and wherever there is a man in the uniform of the Navy, even in the most remote parts of the world, homage will be paid to this branch of our National Ser- vice and a strong arm of our National Defense. From the time of our origin as a nation the American Navy has been the bulwark of our safety and our greatest protection against foreign aggression, and while it has stood the storm and onslaught of the greatest and most destructive wars in history, it has never lowered its colors or lost a cause.* The date, October 27th, was selected as Navy Day because it is the birthday anniversary of the late President Theodore Roose- velt, one of the Navy’s most ar- dent sponsors. No man had a clearer cencep- tion of the value of Naval pOWer than he. Its history, traditions and usefulness to our Nation were clearly understood by him. He well knew that the fleet was our first line of defense. He threw his heart and soul into the labor of building a Navy comensurate with the power and importance of his country. He wanted us al- ways to be prepared to meet any emergency and meet it with the full strength of the Nation.

If a mill needs a new elec- tric motor it must wait at least twelve weeks for delivery and p then can get the equipment only if a manufacturer with a better priority rating does not ask for the machine. Ordinarily, it takes from fifteen to twenty big tractors a. month for normal replacements in the' industry, but lumber firms have not received more than six trac- tors in the past four months, the . association officials said.
