Well bow are you anyhow?
We are feeling pretty good just now, had a good spring and summer trade, but then its a little
quiet just at present, couldn't expect anything else, all the farmers busy, working sixteen hours a day, and
other people at the coast eating clams, makes things quiet for store folks, but its all in a lifetime and we
are satisfied. Come in when you are in town, we are getting lots of new goods now, look them over and
see how you like our newly arranged store. Our prices are so low you can't stumble over them.
Don't sunburn yourself when we sell good
harvest hats for 5 cents each.
We also have a good line of Crash hats.
We have placed 1130 pairs of ZMZcnG

We sell them for $1.00 to $5.00 a pair.
THE WEST SIDE
THURSDAY,' AUGUST 2'2, 10(11.
Wwkly Crop IlulMln.
Portland, Ore., Monday, Auk W, '01.
The weather turned cooler during the
latter portion of the week, and at its
close temperatures below the norrnul pre
vaile l in all parts of the state. No rain
has fallen in the wheat sections of east
ern Oregon since the middle of July
end none of consequence has occured in
the Willamette valley since July 3.
Good rains, however, fell Sunday in the
east central sections of the Btate, which
will help the ranges, but more rain is
needod in all parte of the state for
pastures and late crops, such as hops,
potaloeB, corn, gardens and fruit. Ke
turns from the wheat fields continue
favorable. The fall wheat harvest
is nenrly finished and spring wheat cut
ting is well advanced. Thrashing i h 'in
active progress and nearly everywhere
the terry is reported plump and the
"weight atid grade good.
The second crop of alfalfa has been
cut and safely secured. The yields were
gomtwhat uneven, but, on the whole,
avernged about the same as usual. The
hay crop in the coast counties has been
secured in excellent condition, with
yield above the average, f lops are mak
ing rapid advancement, and picking will
begin early this year. The growth of
the bop vine has not been sufficient to
make a large crop find the yields will be
considerably less than last year, but the
quality will be better.
. Potatoes are remarkably free from
blight. The yield of early planted po
tatoes has been materially reduced
through dry weather, and without rain
a week or two the crop of late-planted
potatoes will also be a light one. On
ions in Washington county are reported
as doing splendidly.
Stcck continues doing fairly well, con
sidering the poor pasturage, but there
has been a slight shrinkage in the sup
ply of milk received at the creameries.
The weather haa been to dry and hot
for fruit, and prunes are dropping mure
than usual in many sections in the Wil
lamette valley nnd in southern Oregon.
The crop, however, promises to he a fair
one, and the drying plants are being put
in redincus for 0eration.

In addition to news, It publishes first

The Thrice-a-Week World's regular

The up-river men report a dry and
gravelly time of it on the run to Salem,
says the Statesman. There iB only 21
inches of water on the bar tit Lambert's
landing and Fire Island, and the I'o
mona and Altona are about the only
boats that can got much further than
Mission Landing. These craft limit
their loads to 15 tons each and wurp
themselves over by vigorous iibo of cap
stans and lines.
There is plenty of water on these
places but it is spread out over a quarter
mile or so and the result is the lowest
bar within the memory of ninny old
timers. A brace or two of permanent
and not over-costly wing datiis would
keep these obstructions scoured out and
obviate much labor and profanity.
We carry the largest seock of thest goods
to be found, in black, blue and checks at 40

It is ull right for manufttottir
ing concerns to combino In trusts
to regulate not only the trice of
the jiroduetB to consumers, but tiltfo
the jirico of labor, hut when labor
combines in self-protection then
the manufacturers suddenly open
their eyes to tho evil of combina
tions. The trusts want all the
tsweets, and as they have tho pro
tection ot unjust larill laws are
certain to get most of the sugar.
The steel trust is ruining towns
inhabited by innocent people by
dismantling its mills, and the long
shoremen's association in California
is runing the fruit growers of that
state, against whom they have no
grudge, by refusing to permit the
ripe fruit to be shipped. JIow long
will the public continue to permit
itself to be injured by private war
fare between associations in which
it has no part?
Evidently no effort has been spared to
make The Ladies Home Journal for
August a positive boon to its readers
dining these warm midsummer days.
Its light, readable articles, bright stories
clever poems, charming music, and
numerous beautiful illustrations afford
the easiest ami pleasantestkind of enter
tainment for leiHiire hours. Enchanting
views of the lovely senery in the Kngn

gestions about "Thw Picnic Basket,"
"Keeping h House Cool in Dog-Days,"
and "Sea-Side Toys ami How to Make
