SHERIDAN, OREGON miles away in a little town in i Oregon, an event was about to take place that would change the lives of a good many people. O. D. ,Hamstreet's Sheridan Sun of 1913 gives this account: (O. D. Hamstreet was the father of Loll Hamstreet). At exactly 15 minutes to six on Friday even- ing, July 18, the hart& of fate opened a shoveer of flame that wiped out the entire south side business district of the historical and 'progresslvb  City of Sheridan.  Before an hour and a half had passed, the fire had swept for. ward with such relentless fury as to destroy banks, hotels, busi- ness houses and homes. The be- ginning was small and was the result of carelessness on the part of two young men who had recently purchased the Zeilger and Rise restaurant, located in the Phillips Bldg. at the corner of Bridge and First Street. The young men, Ray Miller and Roy Ottinger, were prepar- ing the evening meal for their customers and had lit the gaso. line stove for cooking purposes. Noticing the tank was empty one of the boys attempted to fill it without first reducing the flame. An explosion was the r.e- sult. The preceding days had been excessively warm, drying up wood until it formed highly combustable material. The vol- unteer fire depalment was call. ed, a department not drawn by horses but by men. As the fire burned, help arrived from Mc- Minnville, Wiliamina and Carl. ton. Farmers came from all around and some 60 or more men and women formed a bucket bri- gade. i $47 578.00 in cold cash was i paid out thru the Estate Insur. ance Shop in the Sheridan fire. E. L. Knickerbocker, son of C. H. Knickerbocker, was the insur- ance agent. He is now retired and living in Honolulu. The Es-. state Insuranoe office was locat- ed where Sackett and Wright now have their office. "How is your harness?" in- quires Homer Frick. "If you need a n,ew one or the old one needs repairing, you better attend to it at once. My stock is the very best and with the most skillful workmen my jobs are always right." Mr. Frick's shop was lo- cated where the P.G.E. office now stands. Eva Frick, erie of the club's charter members, was the wife of the late Homer Frick. In an October issue it was not- ed in the Red Prairie Pickings that work on Hugh Guttry's new bungalow was progressing nice- ly. Mr. Guttry now resides at the: Rock of Ages Rest Home. The September 19, 1914 issue of the Sheridan Sun tells of a linen shower: "A linen shower in honor of Miss Jennie Waugaman wa given by the Misses Laura Beekwith, Crystal Foerste, Leith and Mabel Bilger at the home of J. L. Bilger Tuesday evening. The home was specially decorated with sweet briar, asters and ros. es. The bride.to-be received a large number of beautiful pres- ents. Fifteen young ladies of Sheridan were present. In a con- test of writing the first grocery list, Miss Vida Beck received first prize. Punch and cake were served. Miss Waugaman became the bride of the late B. A. Teats, Mr. Teats having served as prin- : eipal of the Sheridan high sch(xol i lor four years. An editorial written by O. D. Hamstreet was an eye catcher. The article is entitled AND WE DIDNr RESENT IT. Some weeks ago the Sun reoeived one of many letters oma big depart- ment store in Portland. Its adver- tising manager desired to buy advertising space in this paper. We replied with a kindly letter to this concern informing them of Our theory of home protection and the good alishe6 by loyal support of home industries. We declined the offer of increas. ed business. This is'the reply to our epistle of g :cheer: "Isn't it ridiculous this newspaper fi- delity f yotffa--:o. Sheridan concerns. You decline our adver. Using because o u r business would cmpete with some of your home business men, who are using you for the goat and every cent they spend with you is considered a donation to char- ity! And then t.e, further irritate the wound the letter continues: 'Many of the business men of your town with whom we wish to compete and for whose pro- tectic,n you seem willing to cut your own financial throat, never have their names appear in a business way in your publica- tion, and I could name some of them who are sending their I printing to this city ri.ght now. I You are a fc.:)l and in a fool's I bu,iness, but if you should, de- I sire to change your position we i shall ever be glad to '2o b':.i- caption Local News in many of the Suns of yesteryear. Among these news items we find a war- ning for the fellow who took At- torney Sims' five dollar lid from the house of worship Sunday night. He needs regeneration and a course in Billy Sunday's school of moral and religious instruc- tion. There is no open season in Oregon for lifting ones head gear, and to pick it from a disci. .pie of Gladstone is &double ag- gravation that calls for summary treatment. Mr. Sims tOok a some- what calmer view of the situa- tion. He placed an ad in the classified section stating, "The party who took my hat by mis- take from the Methodist Church Sunday night will kindly return same to my office and exchange and save exposure of his act." People of Sheridan in the year 1914 found themselves somewhat in the same posit!on as did the generations following in 1962. Published in the Sun was a not- ice of a P.T.A. meeting to be held in the assembly room of the high school on Thursday after- noon, January 21st at 3 o'clock. The program was as follows: Song, First grade; Children and Mothers of Japan--Mrs. C. Scrag- gin; Piano solo, Maudie Bennet; The need for a New High School -- Prof. Tats. The old high school co,nsisted of two large rooms. One with desks for the assembly room, the other room was used for classes and housed the fo,ur hh school grades. This building was located where the Faulconer grade school now stands. There were no electric lights in the high school at that time. Prof. and Mrs. Teats met with the school board and sug. gested electric lights be installed in the rooms to enable the stu- dents to meet for Literary Socie. ty meetings. This plan was ad- opted. Later Mr. Teats was offer- ed a position in Independence, which he accepted since it was an advancement. It was also noted the means of travel had prabably changed as much as anything during the years. A short item was read re- garding travel, which }tad been prepared by Jennie Teats: "I would like to take note of the early means of travel such as was used by my .grandparents. My grandfather purchased a ranch over on the coast and mov- ed the family from Sheridan to Slab Creek, now known as Nes- kowln. There were no roadson- ly a trail and the trek was made on horseback. At that time my 90 year old uncle Hal Faulconer was three years old and rode on the horse seated back of .his me. ther. About his only memory of the trip is that his mother said "Hang on tight Hal, this is aw- ful steep," and hang on he did. Sheriden Fire Department. The men traveled on foot running as fast as they could, pulling the hose cart. If the city horse drawn transfer was handy the cart was rushed to the fire in that man- ner." Mr. and Mrs. Roy Dale came to Sheridan in 1910. Mr. Dale said that he and the late Lee Ladd hauled fredghVfor the log- ging camps -- not only freight but foodstuffs as well. His ac. count of the meals prepared in the camps for the men makes the planning of the Harvest Fes- i tival dinner and the Mill ceek dinner pale in comparison. After the men had eaten a whopping breakfast, they were given a bucket, sent to artother table that was laden with sandwiches, cookies, pies and cakes and there they filled their lunch pails to take with them to the woods where they worked until dark. In the evening another bountious meal was prepared. Of course that was in the days of no elec- tric dishwashers, refrigerators or freezers. Mrs. Rant Neely .of Willamina came to this area from Nebraska in 1906. She has resided here since and loaned her wonderful collection of early day pictures to Mrs. Pelzer, which were shown and passed around after the to- pic was presented, as were a number of early day Sheridan Sun's. Many of the pictures showed Sheridan buiIdings prior to the big fire. Others showed parades being held in Sheridan, As one picture was passed around, members wond.ered if the elephant was real. It wasn't the, two sturdy men made up the animal, Leland Sackett the hind quarters. A child rode on the elephant in the parade, the animal being a white elephant. Mrs. W. H. Brandt presented the "I Remember" part of the program. She told of driving a car for the first time. Her lath. er told her "You can drive the car all you vant, as long as you keep it in low gear and just drive around the barn." She also told of a daring experience, of going for a walk in gym bloom: ers and of cutting her hair in 1920. Mrs. Cecil Harrison, who taught school for many years in Sheridan, told of not being able to get her hair "bobbed" until 1923, because she was just ready at the time to start applying f(r a position of teaching school. and it would never do to have short hair. Mrs. Brandt also told of an early Halloween, whcn a 'cow and a horse appeared in the high school building. The president of the club, Mrs. Kenneth Knutson appointed Mrs. 'Bert Teats and Mrs. Cecil Harri. November by Mrs. Fred Spooned; family life in December by Mrs. Harold Ladd; literature and art in January by Mrs. Harold FUl- ler; health in March by Mrs. Ted Rossner; with the Fun Night in ,February for members and hUS- bands; and the golden anniver- sary tea i April. ...... In conclusion Thursday, hostesses, Mrs. Waino and Mrs. Sackett served delt ibtm angel pie and coffee.
