Ejc-CoanailmanJ. Jf. Moffatt TelU
Ex Councilman J. W. Moffatt writes
a very interesting letter from Manilla
under date September 30th, to County
Judge Ryan. Mr. Moffatt is a careful,
conservative observer, and tells things
exactly as they exist. The following
extracts are taken from the letter:
I suppose the hird luck stories the
boys have been writing home, gave the
people what thev thought good grounds
or sympathy. I do not know as sym
pathy will hurt us at all, but hope the
people will not put themselves to much
trouble or expense to show it. I will
give you some facts to figure from, and
then you can judge whether at the pres
,nt time we are in great need of assist
' ance or expressions of sympathy, but I
think it mv duty to trouble my best
friends as little as necessary.
As you know ,mo8t of the boys left
comfortable homes where they came
and went as they pleased and never
knew what hardships meant, and that
it takes time to get hardened to army
life. If you could see how wen ana
hearty most of them are, you would say
that it was the best thing that ever hap
pened them. True, we are somewhat
isolated, and some of the boys have suf
fared from homesickness.. We are lo'
cated in the heart of an ancient city
with a great many modern improve
menta. which makes it interesting and
pleasant. As to the climate, while you
B7. the hottest I have noticed here
3 ) degrees centigrade, which is equal to
83 farenheit. It was a great deal
warmer than that when we fiist landed,
but did not see any thermometer. It
never gets cold, but cool enough to sleep
under a blanket. We get an allowance
f tnH fnr p.lothine for the first six
months. We get the required white
unit for 1 10 here, and a helmet hat
-onat.n ro cants : two shirts. 61 cents
shoes, $1 40, and socks and underclothes
for $1. Twenty dollars will cover our
expenses for clothes so far, including
overcoats. Our blue clothing, etc., we
bo ught in Oregon . By the way, we will
tnt ke the Btate of Oregon remember us
(r., thn (.nut of them, as we wore them
.all the time we were in the National
Tn addition to the above, the private
who draws the smallest pay gets $15 60
per month. Doctor's treatment, hospi
tal service, transportation and board,
which is not always ot tne Desi quamy,
is wholesome and healthy, are all free.
Everything in the market is cheap.
The monthly pay of tlo 60 can be
changed f r about $33, and when you
get that all in bu silver dollars, vou be
gin lo realize the benefit of a convenient
coin. As to the food, when you think
how hard it is to please the appetite
when -you have all the conveniences at
home, all the fruits, vegetables, butter-
milK and groceries, etc , and then how
seldom we get the things th it suit our
taste, it is little wonder that in the
wholesale style we have to prepare food
for 80 men in each company, and 13
c mpanies in a regiment, that there
should be some complaint and sometimes
with a good reason. I find that most of
our troubles come from lack of knowl
edge of how to take advantage of the
comforts of life and appreciate them.
Our greatest trouble is in getting good
cooks. . There should : be government
schools to train cooks tor the army.
Poor cooks, too much whiskv and too
little target practice are serious faults of
tne present army regulations. As to
my own troubles I have nothing worth
mentioning am in the best of health
and nothing to do but ride or drive
around the city, and have all the money
l need. 1 get the Uregonian and city
papers, besides the advantages of a good
reading room with all the latest maga
zines. I received a le'ter from Mr. Johnson
authorizing me to draw on the Willam
ette fulp & Paper Company for 1100.
This has not being used but is being
kept for a rainy day in a colder climate.

The last will and testament of John
Kruae, deceased, was admitted to pro
bate Monday, and the provision of the
will appointing John L. Kruse, execu
tor, was confirmed. To his wife, Ian
the, and son, Homer A, he leaves the
old homestead, together with the stock,
farming implements, furniture, etc ,
except 40 acres in the northwest corner,
which is bequeathed to J. L. Kruse.
The will, however, provides that upon
the death of Ianthe Kruse, her prop
ersy shall go to Homer A. Kruse. Cas
si us Cook, a grandson, gets 90 acres off
the Minkler donation land claim. The
will designates that the Whitmore place
shall be sold, and the proceeds divided
equally among the heirs, J. L. Kruse,
Homer A. Kruse, A. O. Kruse and Cas
erns Cook. Two lots in Oregon City go
A. O Kruse. The will was made on
be 17th dav of July, 1897, and was wit
nessed by Clyde Evans, Ella Evans and
Rosa Wagner. The estate is of the prob
able value of $21,100, and the apprais
era appointed are tred fillers, T. L.
Charman and John Aden.
In the matter of the estate of Peter
Taylor, deceased, the sale of the real
property by the administratrix, Edna
Taylor Diekhoff, was confirmed.
George Welch, executor, filed his an
nual report, and a distribution of
moneys tn the executor's hands was ordered.
The value of our groceries depends on
three things: How much you get for
j'our money; how good it is when you
get it, and' the price you pay for what
you get., We have sugars that are
cheap and sugars that are good. We
have coffees that will satisfy the appe
tite and the pocketbook. Staple goods
at less than staple prices. We give you
money-saving health-saving chances.

entering a shop is, who made this couch or lounge, what is it
made of and can you guarantee the work?
Now, let us tell1 you, no dealer can do that unless the
work is done under his own eyes; lounges and couches are
made by contract in factories, and no manufacturer can
guarantee piece work Quite different with, us dear lady,'
we will show you the lounge cover first, so yon examine the
quality, then we will show you the springs, wool, hair,
