Contrary to general plans, a portion
of the try-out for the Walla Walla
meet was run off last evening that
the time required to conduct the
meet this afternon at the ' fair
grounds might be shortened. All the
weight events and Jumps were1 'dis
posed of last evening following the
school hours. Among the sensational
performances waa Carpy's broad Jump
of 19 feet 10 Inches. This, If dupli
cated In a meet, will mean a' s"re
point, and In the county meet will
carry the event as he will knock off
the other two Inches without a doubt,
thus clearing the 20 foot mark. Other
good records were made In the field
events. Hamilton was declared a
victor In the high Jump by a medium
mark; "Heine" Heidenreich startled
the squad with a throw of the ham
mer of nearly 100 feet, throwing the
lead with one hand. As - expected,

Soft Rubber Tires Strip Hard Surface
Highways of Rock DuHt Binder.
The office of public roads of the
nlted States department of agricul
ture has recently been conducting, a
series of very Interesting experiments
to learn the amount of damage done
the rock surface thoroughfares by
automobiles. The results prove that
the modern fast moving car Is the
greatest menace to macadam .roads
that has ever made Its appearance.
On some stretches of thoroughfare.
pecially In New England, where
many broad and smooth roads have
been constructed, the retrogression is
not less than 40 per cent and It has
been forced upon the director of the
office of public, roads and upon many
highway engineers that If some plan
not speedily devised for overcoming
the bad effects of mens latest and
most sensational mode of land trans
ortatlon, the 'monetary loss will be
stuDendoua and the good work of
many years will go for naught.
It Is not only In America that this
condition prevails. Tho men of Eng
land, France, Germany, Holland, Bel
glum and other countries of the old
world where hard-surfaced hlghwayi
are appreciated, have also learned
that the big soft-rubber tires of the
automobile are doing an almost In
credible amount of harm. France
has officially taken cognizance of the
condition and has called an Interna
tional congress, to meet at Purls on
October 11 to discuss plans for saving
the roads, while In no way interfering
with the development of the automo
bile, for no scientist will condemn one

By comparing the prices at which lots in Riverside Addition have been sell
ing, with the prices of similar property in other sections of the city, it ' will be found
that lots in Riverside Addition have been selling at too low a figure. ,
' ' '''.:
Before advancing the price, however, it has been deemed only fair to give due
warning to those who have been contemplating buying, but who have been delaying
from time to time, therefore , . .
I "that during the remainder of this month (April), prices will remain the same as here
tofore, but on the first day of May there will be a general advance of 10 per cent in
prices, therefore all those who wish to take advantage of this advance must buy this
month. " i ' ', ' i; " '. 'Hi '!
