Ever Since the Opening Day the Oregon Bailding has Been the Greatest Attrac
tion at the Fair by Reason of the Central Location, Diversity
and Wealth of Display and the Very Artistic
Arrangement of its Interior.
Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Fair Grounds,
June 11 (Special.) Nestled in a grove
of towering evergreens, left from thj
native wilderness of the fair site,
stands the beautiful Colonial building
that houses the Oregon exhibits at this
fair , of all the Northwest. With its
spacious lawns, decorated here and
there with beds of Oregon grape, the
Oregon building is one of the most at
tractive at the exhibition; and. in con-

Northwest, as well as by those from
the further states to the east and south.
In fact, ever since the opening day,
the Oregon building has been the Mecca
of all visitors to the fair. Reports of
its exhibits have gone afar, and its lo
cation is such that it furnishes for. the
tourist an excellent base of operations
in the campaign of sightseeing. During
the frequent band concerts its spacious
porch is crowded witn visitors seeking
rest and enjoyment in the great axra-.
chairs that the Commissioners have
provided on its cool and shady porch;
while the two balconies upstairs are
sure to be filled with other visitors,
who are combining the chance to rest
and at the same time enjoy the views
that these porches afford. One of them
gives a vantage point for observation
of the passing crowds, while the other
has an outlook that is rivalled only by
the wonderful vista of Cascade Court.
- Located as it is, in the heart of the
life of the fair, it is but fitting that the
exhibit within, should be of the finest.
And to make it so, the unparalleled re
sources of the Beaver state have been
drawn upon, and set out in such a man
ner that each division is given almost
equal prominence. -In fact, the interior
arrangement of the Oregon building is
an invitation to look and see what Ore
gon has-, a subtle invitation which leads
the visitor on from case to case, from
room to room, until all that Oregon has
to offer has been seen.
Entering the high doorway beneath
the pillared porch, one is confronted
first with the apple pyramid, an artistic
grouping of Oregon's most luscious
fruit and the green and shining leaves
that make Hood River and Rogue River
orchards so beautiful. . This pyramid,
over 20 feet in height, is kept fresh by
the constant substitution of new fruit
for any that may spoil; a large supply
of prime apples being kept in cold stor
age in the refrigerating plant in the
basement. ' f.
And right there the "leading psy
chology" of the Oregon display begins,
if such a term may be used. The eye
naturally follows up the pyramid to its
apex, and sees beyond the grain picture
of the state's resources that fills the
graceful dome. In colors true to life
this great panorama portrays an idyllic
Oregon scene, showing the palisades of
the Columbia, with its waterfalls; the
dense woods of the mountain districts,
the grain fields and pasture land of the
interior, . the hop vines, the birds and
beasts that are native to the state, and
the perfect peak of Mount Hood, rising
white and cold above alL
As the eye takes in this panorama the
question naturally arises as to how all
this could be done without paints, and
by merely using natural grains " to get
the coloring. And so, naturally enough,'
one turns to the pillars of grain that
support the dome, and to the other
grain exhibits, hunting for the different
- kernels that contain the magic colors of
the dome picture. And one finds them
. ' all, and in the search for the different
cases is led to other exhibits, that at
tract one from time to time away from
the search for the multi-colored grains.
The big three days race meet ars-
ranged for last week at Corvallis Driv
ing Park began Thursday and the larga
crowd in attendance had the pleasure of
seeing several pretty contests , between1
Benton county horses. s
In the first event J.- C. Lowe's
"Pearl" took the best two in three mile
heats in 2:51 and 2:39.

. "Beware of forest fires;-put them
out before they get started!"
This is the sentiment the Oregon Con
servation Association will try to stimu
late in the Northwest, before people
have gone camping in the woods. A
meeting will be held on the evening of
Monday, June 14, at the Commercial
Club, in Portland, at which members

used in the dome picture, and while
lookjr.g for it is led to the lumber ex
hibit, that rivals that in the Forestry
building. And side by side with this is
the mineral exhibit, showing that Ore
gon has resources under her wooded
hills, resources well worth delving for.
By this time the visitor has completed
the circuit of the lower floor, and that
red grain is still missing. So the search
is taken upstairs, and there, sure
enough, in tall glass jars, are the red
and yellow kernels of brilliant hue that
are used in the picture to portray the
colors of the pheasant's wing. Once
satisfied that this dome picture is no
fake, and made doubly sure by the in
spection at close range; one turns to
find the stairs, and in so doing sees
yet other exhibits, notably that of the
state schools and institutions. And so
the visitor is led to examine these be
fore returning to the lower floor.
Tired, perhaps, by the wealth of dis
play that has met the eye, the visitor
searches out a place to rest, and is di
rected by courteous attendants to the
rest rooms. These chambers are fitted
up with a sumptuousness seldom equaled
in the hotel palaces of the East, where
no expense is spared to make the guest
comfortable. . Lounging in a chair as
soft and alluring as the most fastidious
could demand, the visitor rests; and at
the same time sees still other Oregon
exhibits furniture and decorations, on
all sides. No chance has been lost in
the Oregon building to display in the
most attractive form the resources of
the state.
Finally rested, the visitor reluctantly
starts to leave, but a merry crowd com
ing from a darkened door to the right
of the entrance piques the natural curi
osity, and the darkened door is investi
gated. It is found to lead to a spacious
and comtortaDie auditorium, with a
huge white screen at one end, on which
are flashed colored views of the incom
parable scenery of the Beaver state.
Watching these pictures of magic beau
ty and listening , to the description of
the places shown, one waits quite con
tentedly until moving pictures, the .de
light of young and old alike, show the
activities of the pioneer state of the
Pacific Coast pictures of city and coun
try life, of farming, lnmbering and
And so, little realizing how the time
has passed, one leaves the Oregon build
ing, only to discover, perhaps, that half
a day has been spent within during that
insidious search for the red grain. Half
a day and it is time to eat. ; The ques
tion is no sooner propounded than an
answer is found, and in the same Ore
gon building. In the basement is
clean and neat restaurant, where Ore
gon-raised foods are sold at reasonable
prices, and so the visitor returns again

What Seattle lumbermen predict is
the first step in a big revival in the
lumber trade, was started yesterday,
when specifications were received from
the East for 12, 000,000 feet of lumber
for bids to be opened July 10. The
specifications came from carshops in
Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Louis.
The Chicago and Milwaukee shops are
asking tender on 10,000,000 feet, and
the St. Louis shops on ,2,000,000 feet.
The material, according to advices re
ceived here, is to be used in the con
struction of a large number of refriger
ator cars for the Northern Pacific Rail
way Company.
The receipt, of these specifications to
day, coming closely upon the letting of
a contract to Oregon mills for 8,000,000
feet by the Pullman Company, causes
local lumbermen to ' believe that from
now on the. revival in -the lumber tjade
will be rapid. , ' . '
Tonight will be a gala time at the Ar
mory the occasion being the annual
OAC Junior Prom, which is always con
sidered to be the swellest social tunc
tion of the college vear, eclipsing even
the Military Ball in point of attendance
and wealth of decoration.
A large number of invitations have
been issued this year and there will be
many out-of-town people present to en
joy the brilliant event.
Of course the music will be excellent,
the toilets handsome and the floor in
perfect condition, so that all who have
the privilege of attending are certain to
enjoy an evening of exceptional pleasure.
