Til h kk hundred thousand pounds of grapes pap
through Portland by a special train from California to
the east liy the Oregon Short Line. The choice of thii
route wan made because of the burning of bridges on
the Central Pacific. Not far distant is the time when
Oregon grates in eijunl quantities will be sent by the
fame route, for thousands of choice grae vines have
been set out the past few years, and many large vine
yards will soon come into fine bearing condition.

Di HiMi the week the Oregon state fair has been in
; progress at Salem, and in many respects is the finest
; ever held by the association. Exhibits of live stock,

....... ..I- nun., nir.n omiji mm "oijn, uil very line,
the entries ls-ing numerous and comprising superb rep
resentatives of nearly all the finest strains of blood.
1 The poultry show is also very Biiptrior in nuinlierg and
quality. The same may be said of the exhibits of ag
ricultural ami dairy products. Great crowds from all
i over the northwest have been in attendance daily, view
. ing the exhibits and witnessing the speed programme.
Ox Thursday, tho 'Jlith of this month, the mam
moth exiHisition of tho North Pacific Industrial Asso
; ciation will begin in Portland. The association has
the largest ami most complete building for that pur
; pose on the Pacific coast, and has spent 2"0,(MX) in
: preparation for this event. Every available inch of
; lb space has brn engaged ami the exhibits will be
-f the widest diversity of character ever gathered
together west of the Hocky mountains. The music
1 will be furnished by Senor I.iherati's great New York
I band and will be eipial to the music at any exposition
I in the Tinted States. Reduced rates of fare have been
secured, and no doubt for a month Portland will be
j crowded with visitors.
That "lost cabin" story by un "old tinier" with
''"''''"'it'1 name of Jones, which appeared in the
hatcon, I.ViviHf, has nothing remarkable about it but
flu t ,lm' litors of the northwest are willing to
dplay their ignorance of the history of the country by
K'vuig it space in their columns. If they will only War
