speak on "What is a Christian ?"
An Irish preacher created some
excitement among the saints of our

saying he was about to do what
the devil himself had not done.

by one of the anxious sisters he

An all-day service was held in
the tent on Wednesday of this week,
which aroused considerable interest
among the christian Workers. A
great good is no doubt being done

Walters is appreciated by the con

quiet manly way.

The advance guard of tramps
has arrived after more or less hard
ships on the trail. Several hard
looking specimens arc seen loiterinn
around the river front near the
shingle mill and under the trestle,
making it dangerous to leave one's

no police protection, it will be a
risk for ladies or children to be out
but not even with nn eyelid must tho
unfortunnto betray his nnxlcty. At

BUILDINGS IN MINIATURE.
Arahltacta Often Make Clay Modela
of Important Itrurturra.
Although tho architect Is still the
most Important person In tho planning
f any big public or private building, ho
often uetcuds on tho model maker and
not tho draftsman to show his patron
Just how tho structuro will look when
completed. Tho model maker, In othe
words, takes tho architect's drawings
nnd makes nn exact counterpart of tho
building on a small scale In clay.
When a theater Is to bo constructed
for example, such a model Is made with
tho greatest minuteness, nnd every de
tail Is looked nt from tho point of view
of the Ui go. thus avoiding tho posst
btllty that when it Is too lute soma of
the scats will bo found ijulto out of
range of the performance. In other
buildings architectural details thnt np
pear excellent on paper nro thus hoiiio
times discovered to be Inharmonious
with the character of tho structuro as
a wliolo.aud can be changed before the
actual process of their construction has
started. By tho uso of models, In fact,

body can express his objections before

A favorite place for sicht-seeinc
is the bluff on the Boulevard a little
ubove the University grounds.
There, on any evening of the week
a group of people may be seen ad
miring the panorama stretched
before them. With the lights of
the fair grounds in the distance it
makes a fairy picture, and on
special evenings the fireworks draw
many people to this vantage point.
"Boy drowned!" was shouted
around the Park the other day and
fond mothers began inquiring for
their own. After the hopefuls had
all beeu gathered in and noses
counted it was found that a poor
little unknown had met his fate at
the south end of the trestle near
the flour mills. This is the first of
the summer, but who will be next?
Last summer's tragedy will live in
the minds of some mothers of the
Park as long as life endures.
A Masonic lodge is wanted in the
Park very much. We have a flou r
ishing Odd Fellows and Artisans,
but our neighborhood could turn
out more Masons than these two
lodges put together. It would be
a great convenience especially to
the older brethren, who don't like
the late home-coming after a visit
to their favorite lodge in Portland.
The Haywood club, having left its
beautiful quarters, has made it pos
sible for us to secure an ideal lodge
room. Some new comers to the
Park have promised to send for
their demit if a lodge is started here
and cast their lots among us.
"Knocking" the fair seems to be
a favorite pastime among some of
our people, but if they only took
time to think of the foolishness of
such, they might justly feel
ashamed. The history of all big

Waarars of Cockaulea,
Cockades were formerly worn only
by soldiers, which gave riso to the
phrase, commou both In England and
France, "to mount tho cockade," mean
lug to become a soldier. Tho black
cockade worn on the hats of officers'
servants waa Introduced into llrltaln

not only to naval and military officers,

not claim to be classed under any of
thee categories display It on their
