lias uot been informed as to what

rumor has been current that a
large gas plant will be erected,' but
this is discredited A person who
is familiar with the details of the
gas business says it is uot likely
that a gas plant would be built so
far from the source of consumption,
and cites the fact that it would cost
$5 or more a foot to extend the
large supply main to Portland. To
lay this main would require about
five miles of pipe. A more desir
able and less expensive site would
likely be selected if the manufacture
of gas was intended.

CLOSING OUT ABSOLUTELY
An Advertising Scheme,
Actually Selling Out.
The magnificent stock of the
Wagoner ComjKUty is now being
rapidly decreased iu size, and while
the owners are not making any
money out of the sale the patrons
of the store arc surely saving a
large amount. There is not a
householder iu this vicinity who
can afford to miss these great daily
sales because a purchase means
the shutting out of all profit to the
handler. It means buying at retail
at wholesale prices. It means, too,
that no Portland store can touch
the bargains shown by the Wago
Many people are caught by nam
ing ads iu the city dailies, and find
out, too late, that high prices rule
on decent goods, but here is an op
portunity to secure genuine bar
gains iu groceries, dry goods, fur

every article handled by their ener
getic store is to be disposed of at

delay not a day, but go to the store
and sec that your money is saved.

bargain when seen, and the big

stock is closed out buyers will have
to purchase at profit-makiug stores.
