sewed three times. AH seams are "overcast"
to prevent raveling.

best suited for your boy. Patterns are
attractive and there is all the style you
want Made for us by Ederheimer, Stein

registers kept in several bulldiugs at

give the visitors to the fair an op
portunity to say what is on their
In the column devoted to "remarks'
are many queer things. At the Ya
kima building the register Is prom
inently placed and nearly everybody
registers. W. A. Miles of Pike coun
ty, Missouri, announced under the
head of "remarks" that he was "all
the way from Pike." Philip Costello
said "Chicago is good enough for me."
S. S. Myers of Spokane, remarked
"Ahead of Wenatchee, the home of
the big red apple." This angered Miss
Marguerite Greeman of Wenatchee,
who resented the slam on her home
city as follows:
"We have larger apples than you."
Thomas P. English of Springfield,
"I will leave the remarks to my
wife." D. J. Forest of Johnston, Pa.,
simply said "Tired" and E. B. Waters,
wife and baby, Bremerton, put down
"hungry" in the remarks column.
These remarks serve as an inter
esting study of the people who visit
a great fair. Such comments as "hun
gry" and "tired are not infrequent,
but many are more optimistic. David
B. O'Mullen, Prince Edward, Island,
Canada, remarked: "Excellent exhibit."

With export wheat weaker, by a
trifle, the last two days, Union county

Though several big sales are being
negotiated, the mills have not jnadj
aoy purchases this week worthy of
mention. Apparently there will be
b.tt few deals consumated unless It
Is later in the week.
