NORTON HOUSE. Cot. First and C Sts., Portland.
The Norton House, of which we
give an illustration in this number, is
situated on the corner of First and C
streets and is owned and occupied by
Mr. P. Norton. It is one of the neatest
and best arranged hotels in this city,
possessing all the modern improve
ments and located near the railroad and
steamboat landings, with street cars
passing the house every five minutes,
it is naturally a favorite stopping place
for the traveling public.
AN EXTENSIVE ESTAltMSMMENT.
A VISIT TO THE LARGEST HOOK STORE
Perhaps no firm in this State is so
often mentioned by the press, and yet
so few people have any real idea what
an extensive establishment J. K. Gill
& Co.'s book and stationery house
really is. Attracted by the magnificent
lisplay in the two large plate glass
windows fronting the store of this firm,
we entered the salesroom and were at
once taken in hand by the courteous
proprietor and "shown through,' For
the benefit of our readers vyc-have jot
ted down a ftf-vactsr The salesrooms
are elegantly fitted un with every
kjurtvh improvement for the rapid
transaction of business, and here the
most bewildering array of books may
he seen, from the diminutive toy book,
which could be easily hid away under a
silver halfdollar,to the pondrous and ele
gantly bound family Itible. The firm
makes all its importations direct from
European andeastern publishing houses,
and are therefore always in receipt of
the very latest and at first hand prices.
The blank book department i? in the
rear, and here, also, the firm possess
superior facilities, being in constant and
direct communication with the largest
manufacturers hi that line. They possess
also the same advantage in line of gold
pens, porteinonnaies fancy cut glass
inkstands, etc. Occupying the center
of the salesroom, arc long table where
ill the latest cheap publication-., as well
us newspapers and magazines, are
stocked. Descending the elevator Into
a roomy basement, we find, it tilled with
case goods, such as inks, mucilage, and
other heavy merchandise. Again as
cending, we pass the salesroom and
land on what is known as l the gallery,"
this is a department which has just been
completed ami is really a continuation
of the salesroom, being connected w ith
it by an easy stairway. In the gallery
ate kept the duplicates of what the
salesroom contains, although the real
wholesale department is still up another
stairway leading to the story above.
Here no one hook off kind or single
dozen of any article is to be seen,
Everything is by the gross ot one hun
dred. The stock here is perfectly im
mense, and we ventured to inquire,
whether Oregon really used up so
large a stock of books, stationery, porte
monnaies, reticules and fancy goods in a
year. This inquiry Mr. Gill met with
a bland smile, and assured us that the
entire stock is cleared, at least four
times a year, no shelf-worn goods
no old stock everything fresh ami
clean. From the wholesale department
a doorway leads into the Art gallery,
consisting of a stock of brackets, pic
tures, frames and decorating leaves.
Here no article is retailed, it being es
pecially designed to furnish country
customers with holiday goods. It will
really repay any one to spend an hour
and inspect the many novelties on sale
at this establishment, and country
merchants can rest assured, that, for the
first time in the history of Oregon, the
book and stationery buyer may now
purchase here on the same terms as in
San Fransisco, J. K. Gill & Co. being
always willing to duplicate any one's
bill or price.
Stop that Cough before it settles
into a consumption: Weathcrford's
".Wigandia," a preparation of native
mountain balm, will cure all colds,
throat and lung diseases. The first
dose is guaranteed to give relief. Ask
your merchant for it.
