W. L. Thorndyke returned last Sunday from a trip to the Coos Hay country. In regard to it he says: " As tar as tlie price ot real estate is coucf.rucd it is high, iu fact, too high, for investment.

Thorn- dyke, both of whom are projierty owners iu St. Johns, transplanted several rhododendrons from the woods there to St. Johns. These are now set out 111 tue yarn ot uiu latter-named, and one of them is to be placed iu the grounds of the city hall when graded. Contractor Crook: "Although the contract calls for the comple tion of the interior of the city hall within ninety days, or about the first of August, I am going to try to turn it over to the c ty by July The sooner I get it done the greater the profit, and I shall try and get through as quick as I can. Several changes have been made in the plans, but they will not retard the work." Although workmen are still en gaged in clearing up the large tract of gravel above the government moorings on the opposite bank of the Willamette the general public lias uot been informed as to what is to be built on the ground. A 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. The National Tea Store.

CLOSING OUT ABSOLUTELY Not An Advertising Scheme, Actually Selling Out. But 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 ner Company. 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 niture, tinware, notions in short, every article handled by their ener getic store is to be disposed of at cost and sometimes at even less than cost. Every day lessens this big stock the hustling kitten gets the cream: delay not a day, but go to the store and sec that your money is saved. The careful householder realizes a bargain when seen, and the big store is full of them. After their stock is closed out buyers will have to purchase at profit-makiug stores.

Au option has been taken 011 ground adjoin ing the steel ship building opera tions, and it is the intention of this company to begin construction work as soon as their plans are uiatuic.
