I recently saw an eastern druggist's
ad. which explains the point regarding
large buying and cash payment so much
better than I ever have been able to do
that I give the ad here exactly as it ap
"A certain patent medicineVivhich is
quoted at $8.75 per dozen can be bought
in 3 dozen lots at wholesale for $7.50 per
dozen. One gross (12 dozen) costs at
wholesale $6.75 per dozen. Then if spot
cash is paid an additional 5 per cent,
discount is allowed which brings the cost
down in gross lots to $6.41 per dozen.
Small stores which buy in one-fourth
and one-half dozen lots pay at wholesale
$8.75. We pay ,in gross lots $6.41.

Oregon City is to have large sawmill

promoters have been keeping their
counsel to themselves, but Frank J.
Miller, of the Albany Iron Works, in
formed a Courier Herald reporter, last

tract to furnish the machinery for the
new mill. The promoters of the new
enterprise are Carl A. Patzluff , a promi
nent mill man, recently from Prairie du
Chien, Wis., and C Moehnke, of the
West Sidd sawmill, above the falls.
The new mill will take the place ol the
old one, and an edger attachment will
be added. Mr. Miller said that Mr.
Patzlaff was paying cash as he went
along, and had purchased two good
teams recently. His attention was first
attracted to this section by the New

''Did Columbus Discover America?"
is the pertinent title of an article in the
June Everybody's. It is based on the
investigations of Henry Vignaud, secre
tary of the U. S. Legation in Paris, who
in a recent work devoted to the subject
declares Columbus to have been an ira
pooter and a forger. Vignaud's research
es extend over a long period of years
and certainly disclose evidence tending
to unsettle Columbus' claim as a great
navigator and discoverer.
