NO. 14 New Fashion Magazine St.JohnB is to have a new fash ion magazine.

This sweeping provision for creating in St. Johns a style au thority of the first rank has been made possible by an arrangement which touch Lo.havo conclud ed with 3.000 other leading dry goods merchants in all. pnrts of the United States and Canada. "Good Dressing" will bo pub lished simultaneously by all of these 3000 stores. Each store, however, will havo a portion of the magazino specially printed to carry its own announcements in this way making the publica tion its private organ. So fnr as is known no other monthly pub lication of this type is in exist ence. The first issue of the now magazino now ready at Couch & Co8 pattern counter, presents a notable array of new fashions.

The cover design in two colors is by Harrison Fisher. Couch & Co. announce that while the magazine is issued by them for their customers, they will be glad to present a copy to any St Johns woman who cares to call for it at their store. Hereafter "Good Dressing" will be ready on the 6th day of each month. Sound Counsel "We cannot, of course, all be handsome, And it's hard for us all to be good; Wo are sure now and then to be lonely, And we don't always do as we should. To be patient is not always easy, To be cheerful is much harder still; But, at least we can always be pleasant, If we make up our minds that we will. And it pays every time to be kindly, Although we feel worried and blue; If you smile at the world and look cheerful, The world will smile back at you; So try to brace up and look pleasant, No matter how low you are down ; Good humor is always contagious But you banish your friends when you frown."

To Build Heating Plant A $300,000 steam heating plant with mains radiating from tho building to be erected on tho Pit tock block, and eventually sup pying tho entire central business district of the city, is planned and will bo constructed by tho Northwestern Electric Company if tho city council acts favorably upon an ordinanco which will be brought up for consideration at tho meeting tomorrow, which provides for a 25 year franchise, giving tho right to lay down, maintain and operate through and under tho streets of the city tho mains for such a plant. Tho estimate of $300,000 takes into consideration the cost of the first year's installation. Tho plan is to establish the central plant in the Pittock block and thence to extend the mains to supply other buildings in all directions, as tho demand grows. Prepara tions for the installation of the plant are to be began as quickly as possible, 11 the irancmse is granted by the city. Monday's Oregonian. It would certainly be a great innovation if a heating plant be also installed in St. Johns. It is something that is badly needed. A Simple Method A simple although effective way of "breaking in" shoes is that employed in the United States army. After the shoes have been fitted to their feet the soldiers stand in water up to the shoe tops, until the leather is thoroughly soaked. Then the soldiers are put on a march, and this "hike" is kept up until the shoes are thoroughly dried on the feet. Forever afterward the shoes are perfectly comfort able, for they conform in shape to every little peculiarity of the wearers' feet. This method of breaking in shoes, while not new in itself, is one result of the re cent investigation of the foot trouble of the army, which the specially appointed board of army officers has been conducting. From the February Popular Me chanics Magazine. Subject of Conjecture Since the water rate controver sy has been placed in the hands much speculation is being indul ged in as to just how and upon what basis the Commission will decide tho proper rates to be established. And there seems to bo a wide diversity of opinion in this regard. Some claim that the Commission will base the rates upon what other cities of like population are paying in the Northwest; others profess to believe that a record will be made of all the expenditures of the water company to date and also of the total receipts to date, and that a legitimate or reason able profit will be thus figured; others feel certain that a basis will be arrived at by estimating the cost of reproducing the plant in its present condition and the present receipts and nec essary expenditures, striking a just profit therefrom after 1 allowance for maintenance; still others contend that Portland prices tire tho only ones upon which the rate question should be settled. The engineer of the water department states that that city at present owns 630 miles of water pipes laid, includ ing all sizes and the main line from the reservoirs. There are. according to Superintendent uocigo s annual report, recently published, 54,481 service connec tions to tho 530 miles of wntcr mains, or an average of a little over one hundred to the mile. The local company has thirty miles of pine and about 1200 ser vice connections, mnkingnn aver ago of forty service connections to the mile. Thus it will bo seen that Portland has two and ono half times as many connections to the mile as has St. Johns. and, therefore, that city can so- euro as much revenue from each mile of pipo by only charging each consumer two-fifths of tho St. Johns rate, it is contended. st how tho Railroad Commis sion will decido is simply con jecture, and it matters littlo so that it is dono in n justandequi tablo manner. It is only natur al that peoplo should seek to get commodities as low as possible, but if they can bo assured be yond doubt that the prico is not excessivo few will complain. W. R. C. tiim On Friday of last week the W. R. C. met at tho hospitable home of Mrs. Sallio Nolen of 515 North Hnyes street, St. Johns.

Thon wo re paired to the dining room where so varied and bountiful a lunch con awaited us that our first thought was that one of their handsome daughters had slipped off on tho sly and committed matrimony, but inquiry develop ed the fact that wo was celebra ting Mrs. Nolan's birthday. That sho may enjoy many more, surrounded by true friends, was the wish of all. for if there is any ono who deserves a long and happy hie, it is bister Nolan. After doing our best to relieve the table of its toothsome load, we took stock of our day's work three quilts tied, one dollar fifty for our treasury, an unusual ly fine luncheon, and day of en joyment Yes, we had a jolly good time. -Keporter. A deal has recently been closed through tho Office of Shenard, Mills & Rogers, for the sale to John Bingham, of four lots in Willbndge addition near the Standard Oil plant on the Linn- ton boulevard for approximately $4,000 and of three lots adjoin ing to Joseph McClelland for $3,100. Mr. Bingham has start ed work on an apartment house to be erected on his property, which will have six apartments of five rooms each.

Always a Temptation No matter how well filled one's wardrobe may be or how well satisfied one may bo with the season's outfit, a chic blouse, or a real smart looking skirt is always a temptation. That can 1 e a not be denied by nny woman or young girl who has tho very natural desire lor good dressing. And whohasn'tf but. ot course. to buy, ready made, all the things one wants, would surely spell bankruptcy, oven to a well filled nurse. So. the only and best. as well as very practical solution to this problem, is make what you want, yourself. Under the present state of things, when we enjoy so many wonderful now things and improvement in the old, to facilitate to a remarkable 7330 degree, the art of '.sewing, hard ly a woman with!, even a crudo knowledge of iL-can or should put forth Uia-pl5V of ..inability. borne of the loveliest of fabrics aro shown in tho shops, and tho beauty of thoir texturo and color, 18 simply stunning. And every thing is color, nowadays. Tho most unexpected combinations aro made, yet with wonderfully good effects, nnd unusual color schemes, seem to bo tho main object of the best and most artis tic dressmakers. Think of using, tapestry for trimming a blouse! Yet that is what is done, and beautifully, too.

This skirt can be worn beautifully with the blouse described, and, if preferred, the same material could be employed, thereby making a very harmonious little coat dress, that could serve for various occasions, City Primary Nominating .Election Notice Notice is hereby given that on Saturday, the Btn uay 01 March. 1913. at Bailey's Store room in tho Holbrook building at the corner of South Jersey and Richmond streets, for the 1 irst Ward, and the City Hall for the Second ward, a Primary nominat ing Election will bo held, at which the Republican and Dem ocratic parties will choose their candidates for City Officers, namely: Ono Mayor.

A resolution directing the city engineer to prepare the necessary data for this improvement was adopted. City Physician Jaync communi catcd the fact to the solons that a case of small pox existed nt 309 Philadelphia street, in the per son of a Mormon elder, and in quired what disposition thecoun en desired to make 01 the case. It was tho general opinion that the infected person be sent to the county pest house, but the mut ter was referred back to the physician with full power given to dispose of the case as he deem ed advisable. Tho fire department requested that the lire company be insured against accident nnd sickness resultant from exposure at time of lire. Insurance agent, IInr vey Smith, was present and stat ed that the cost of such insurance to each member would be $1.50 per month, which alllowed $30 per month benefits and paid all iiospital and doctor fees, besides allowing $300 for funeral expen sos. Matter was reierred to a committee of five, appointed by tho mayor as follows: Aldermen llorsman. Wilcox. Martin. Ililler and Hill. C. C. Woodhousc. in behalf of a probable tenant, asked that the license fee for shooting galleries ue lowered, it is now sau per quarter, ueferred to tho license committee, which lattor report ed unfavorable to reduction, es pecially for tho first quarter. Re port was sustained. A petition for an arc light at the corner of Burr and Bank streets was referred to the water and liirht committee. A telephone nolo located In tho sidewalk on Philadelphia street north 01 the city hall was ordered removed. Stimulus to Ambition The San Francisco Argonaut makes tho statement that Mrs. Tvcitmoe has put up as bail bond for her husband property to the valuo of $70,000. which may bo availablo as a part of tho nond required by tho United States for release of her husband. "Tho incident should servo as a stimulus to tho ambitions of youth, already ovcr-prono to la ment that the days of opportun ity have passed. It is only a few years ago since this horny- handed son of toil came to Cali fornia with tho Bweat of a Minnesota penitentiary fresh on his brow. His offense against a brutal capitalism is said to havo been that of forgery, and it was natural that so valiant a rovolt against the conventional ideas of property should endear Mr. Tveit- moo to tho comrades of ban Francisco and should lead him into tho foremost position in tho ranks. There is nothing to show whether Mr. Tveitmoo brought anything with him to California in the shape of a nest egg, whether thero was any small residue from his Minnesota ad ventures. Presumably not. Wo may suppose that ho had to be gin onco moro nt tho bottom of his ladder and make his way to the top by those peculiar gifts first evidenced in Minnesota and lately displayed afresh by the proceedings at Indianapolis. Mr. Tveitmoo never seemed to mvo anything particular to do. at least not in daylight nor of he kind that decent folk applaud. but whatever he did must have been remunerative-in a small way, ot course since property to tho value of $70,000 is so easi- y raised for his liberation. It is an inspiring spectacle and one calculated to animate our youth with a duesenso of the ignominy of work, which is rarely reward ed upon a scale so munificent. Now what could have been tho source of that property? Is it possible that we have a clue, as the detectives say. to the where abouts of that vast sum of money raised for the McNamara de fense, and raised from tho work ing men all over the country to whom $70,000 would seem an im possible dream?"

The Library Ojcn Hours: IsootosiAo nml 7 to 9:30 Sundays: 2i30 to 5s30 p.m Last Saturday tho library had the largest daily circulation in its history. One hundred and eigh ty-ono books were given out. The circulation for January was 8001. Hereafter the central library rule of 2c fine when a book is re turned without the card upon which it is charged will be en forced. It has been found that as the circulation increases too much confusion arises if the curd is not stamped clear as soon us books are turned in.
