the National Press club at Washington,
Wellman was prosentod with a hand
some silk flag of the United States,

to tho top of the north pole or plant it

placed upon him and said the flag
should lie placed at the highest northern
point reached by the expedition. The

700 mile of tho pole. From there the
journey on the ice will begin.
It is stated in gambling circles that a
projoet is on foot to establish a Monte
Carlo at East Omaha similar to the in
stitution in Monaco. A syndicate of
wealthy local gamblers is to be formed.
The site to be selected will be on the
Iowa side, near the street car line. The
building will have an annex in which
reading, smoking and concert rooms
will be arranged. In an informal dis
cussion of the Bchome proposed at a
gathering of several of the wealthy
gamblers, the subject of the locatku of
a first-class racetrack was also men
tioned. The plan is to establish first
class sporting headquarters upon a scale
0f splendor not equaled elsewhere in the
country, and as the location would be
oubilde of the jurisdiction of police
authorities arrangements could be made
for all sorts of sporting events,

Arthur Qtilller-Coneh's story called
"The Tauper" contains the description
of a poor old couple who give tho last
little entertainment to their friends be-
foro going into the workhouse. It seems
to lie the ustinl thing fur Cornish folks,
whoso hospitality even under the most
disadvantageous circumstances is pro
verbial. Ihcy like to make a splash be

the eight day clock, that was tho only
thing o' value she had left. Brown o

an went down stem foremost when the

Hie Great Paper Mill In the Lead-Its
But few pojiers of the United State
have ever undertaken a work of great
er magnitude than has evidently been
called for In the publication of the
QrtytmUin't "Handbook of tbe Pacific
Northwest," a copy of which has Just
reached the desk of the VViHT Hiok.
The "handbook" w something ot A
misnomer Inasmuch as It give but
little Idea of the great scope of the
work. Its value as a book of reference
mi lie Appreciated from the statement
that It index alone contains upward
of 10,000 entries, but aside front it
value a a statistical publication, .It
complete and highly interesting sub
ject mutter almost entitles the book to
beciui-M'd as a history. It contains
nearly 1,000 Illustrations which were
made in the Ortyonian'u engraving
nsiiiis. It is a well bound a any of
the finest Eastern publications and
lu Us press work and generally attract- .
ive upiwaraiice it Is far ahead of any
siteciul publication ever Issued under '
the auspices of any paper on tbe coast.
The to iK of the "handbook" can be
better understood when it 1 stated
that it contains exhaustive aud relia
ble articles ou all the leading industries
of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, West
ern Montana aud British Columbia; on
the climate, topography and soil of
this vast region, and extended men
tion of every town of importance In the
Pacific Northwest. Euergy applied to
a practical purpose, the dominant factor
in the success of the Qrcjonian, was
never shown to better advantage than
lu the publication of tbe "handbook"
during a year when all business was
stagnated aud when nothlug but un
profitable returns were looked for from
most enterprises. Everybody who de
sires full and accurate information on
the Pacific Northwest, should send for
a copy of the "handbook," and the
book t-hould be kept on file, in all pub-
lie libraries. It is sold at the popular
price of three dollars,
