Meat caters, according to n col

vegetarians. Possibly it is because
the prices make the meat caters
hustle more to get the price.

would take no more chances.

If there is a city in the United
States in the 5,000 class,- that has
done more public improvement In
(lie past year than bt. jolius, we
would be glad to hear from it. Pro
portiouate to the population it far
exceeded Portland in this line, ht
Johns should certainly feel proud of
leading the world in public Im
provemeut for one year, nt least.
Central Oregon came in lor con
siderable praise this week from im
migration officials of the Great
Northern railway, who completed
nu cxteiided tour through Harney,
I.akc nnd Malheur counties, They
spoke in the highest terms of the
country traversed and predict it will
promote immense wealth when
properly settled. To bring more
people to this idle laud is their
A iHititiou has been received by
the city comioil praying for the im
provcincnt of Philadelphia Mreet
from lMison to the city dock with
hard surface from KdlMiii to Hrnd
ford nnd from thence to the city
dock with planking. Philadelphia
street is 100 feet wide, the only
street in the city of that width. It
is the only street proposed to be
improved tn the river thus fnr. It
is said to have the best grade of
any street leading to the river. Its
unusual width gives teamsters nu
opportunity to zigzag from one side
to the other when hauling extra
heavy loads. It should be im
proved without n doubt. If the
pnuwrty will not stand for the im
provemeut, we believe few citizens
would object to the general fund
providing the excess. Philadelphia
and ImismhiiIuii and possibly Hurl
ingtou streets are three thorough
faros that must he improved before
we can attain metropolitan promi
ueuce. If the property owners min
im) to fifty er cent of the valuation
oi their projierties in thee ijuprove
mciits, it is all that should be ex
pected of them, nil that can be re
quired. Property owneis for other
streets, except 111 nire instance!,
have not paid over fifty per cent, of
the valuation of their properties
nnd many let than that. So if
proierty owners on the three streets
mentioned do that well, it doe not
seem uurcakouaitie tuai 1 11c city as
a whole should bear the balance of
the burden, since the whole city
will boueut thereby, We hoe to
see Philadelphia Mreet improved
clear to the dock. It would prove n
most inagntlicent thoroughfare, one
in which nil citieus could take
prme 111 snowing visitors, it is a
long step in the right direction.

The Gas Kitchen
Means the Cool Modern Kitchen
The modern home would be as complete without
water and sewer connections as it would be without
a gas range and a gas water heater.
With the Gas Kitchen you have banished the coal,
wood, dirt, dust, ashes, kindling and heat.
While no two women may agree on any other subject, yet of tho thousands that
are using gas ranges,nll arc agreed that they arc the most convenient and durable
economical and perfect cooking and baking appliances they ever saw or used.
Our 1912 ranges arc now ready for delivery.
Just as we promisethey represent the combined features of quality nnd convenience.
Wc can meet the requirements of any kitchen regardless of size.
