Here in Oregon from a study of
the claims made at the headquarters
'of Selling. IJourne and Lane we
know that each one of them will re
ceive the endorsement of the people
and that when the legislature meu
In January it w ill have the pleas
ant duty of casting a vote for three
senators from Oregon instead of one.
This will, of course, delight ail the
candidates as no one will Buffer the
humiliation of defeat.
But when we come to sift the dif
ferent claims and look facts square
In the face we find that there are
some startling duplications. For in
stance the electoral vote of the state
of New York is elnfmed by the man
agers of the three leading candidates.
The same Is true as to the electoral
votes of the stales of Illinois, Ohio.
Indiana and Pennsylvania. As a
matter of fact Tuft's chances of elec
tion have brightened materially in
the past ten days. His strength lias
increased wonderfully and many of
the old line republicans have come
back into the party and have decid
ed to vote for ihe head of their tick
et. Wilson fs Taft's competitor.
Had tbe election been held six weeks
ago Wilson would have won easily.
Today there is some doubt. Alto
gether he has the best chance Taft
has made many inroads into the Wil
son strength lately, but whether they
have been sufficient will not be
known until after election and tbe
votes are counted. Various claims
are put forth in the Eastern slates as
to the relative strength of Taft and
"Wilson. Here in Oregon there Is
a strong probability that the presi
dent will carry the state although
time were here, are here no more
but sober industrious working men
are here to take their place. Thus
you will see labor conditions are also
improved. I will never again vote for
a wet town. Sincerely

Having had many inquiries for Gas Stoves and Ranges, we have
finallv accepted agencv, for which we think is the best obtainable, in
the ACORN.
Gas is THE fuel for home use, and especially so in the kitchen.
Yith wood or coal, you require more room
With wood or coal, you must wait sometime before securing re
quisite heau
With wood or coal, you loose time taken to keep stove supplied
with fuel.
With wood or coal, you have a constant variation of heat.
With wood or coal, you cannot be gone very long or fire is out.
With w od or coal, it is dust and dirt and smoke from time fuel
is brought in until ashes are carried out.
Do any of those objections apply togas?
And cheapness is in favor of gas, if properly used, for it can De
wasted as well as wood or coal.
Come in and look over our "Special" series jof gas ranges, and
you can be easily shown where economy lies.
Look at cut in upper left hand corner, note that there is no stoop
ing or lifting while using ovens. Note how easily things can lie
kept clean and neat aoout it, even to the floor.
Cost, O well now, don't worry over it, as it is low when cor" pared
with goods ottered, and we want you to look goods over and then you
can form a better idea of worth than you can from cold figures.
