E are constantly studying quality, styles and prices of all the different makes and
know them from A to Z, we are therefore able to furnish the best in the market
at the least possible price.
We are busv. but alwavs find time to wait on a customer and show our goods.
We have received another shipment of those new thin model Boss Filled Watches.
They are guaranteed to preserve the exact appearance of an all-gold case for 25 years.
If through any fault in making it should fail to wear 25 full years, we will give a new
case in exchange for it.
It is not gold all through but you would never know it ; it is stronger, as beautiful
and much cheaper than an all gold case. We would like to explain its construction to you.
How about your watch? If it does not give satisfaction, or if you would like to nave
another, show it to us. We allow full value for it on a new one, and if you are not able
to pay the full amount at one time, we will sell it on the installment plan.
In case you cannot afford a new one at present and are in need of a good time piece,
leave your old watch with us for repairing. We do good work, do it promptly and at a
fair price. And guarantee it for one year.
We regulate Watches free of charge, whether you bought them of us or not.

amas Grange, No. 298, in which he held
the office of Steward. One of nature's
noblemen, he was esteemed and loved
by bis fellowmen.)
It becomes us, on every occasion, to
honor the departed, and as every human
being is a child of the Infinite Father,
each is entitled to our tendereBt consid
erations. Our Brother Patron Ross Parker, who
laid bis mortal down August 4th at 5 p.
m., hiving just entered the22d year of his
age, deserves, for the time being, atten
tions above the ordinary; and like every
other human being that ever lived, or
ever will live, he possessed at birth those
innate and divine qualities which go to
make up the truest manhood of earth,
and being brought up by an exemplary
and indulgent mother, those qualities
were trained from infancy in the paths of
goodness and activity. As the years
were passing over his head those same
Eowers increased in strength and Roes
ecame a boy admired by all who knew
him; and as his age to manhood ad
vanced he began to bear fruits of general
kindness to all, specially kindness to the
unfortunate. Dumb brutea under his
charge received his tenderest care; even
the worm in the path beneath his feet
was passed by unharmed. Ever mind
ful of his mother's welfare, he sought
to make her home pleasant in every way
within hia power He sought the most
refined society in which to move, and
gathered around himself as companions
those who, like him, aspired to better
conditions ot lite.
Although his form now lies in the
clay ; Brother Ross Parker is gone, gone
from mortal sight, from mortal recogni
Who will undertake to say
He lives not in immortal day?
Perchance in yonder sky above
He lives in a home of peace and love.
Prophets of old have declared such ex
istence to be the final abode of man, and
on down to our own day our intuitiona
proclaim the same to be true. When
we come to compile the evidencea of life
beyond the grave, we find one unbroken
chain of facts from the most ancient his
tory to the present day strongly Blip
portiDg that claim.
But taking it for granted that such
life does exist, what are our brother's
relations there? Life, being continu
ous, is governed by the same law,
whether in that world oriuthia; and
when Brother Parker awoke on that ce
les'iat shore, it was like Btepping from a
lower to a higher room in the same
house, like passing from a lower to a
higher grade in the same Bchool. All
he haa learned on earth will be his be
ginning there, with far gre iter facilities
for learning all that is good, pure And
noble in spirit throughout the eternal
It ia the duty of earth-mothers to
quicken, by intelligent teachings, and
as fast aa conditions will allow, all those
latent powars of soul that are born with
their babes . A fter the germ of the rose,
through the nutrition of earthly ali
ments, has burst its shell and become a
plant, then nature with more refined
elements carries the process of unfold-
ment on to greater perfection ; so nature
works through the mother's intellect,
through the mother's love, for the un
fold ment of those innate powers of
soul the heritage of every man that
leads to noble manhood on earth, and
to angelhood in heaven.
Then, if the theory of soul evolution
"s true, we need have no fear for the fu
ture welfare for our arisen brother, for
wnat be lacked in useful knowledge on
earth will be taught him there by gen
The Patron's love of Justice and Fra
ternity that characterized Brother Ross,
and which he was so active in trying to
exemplify in his grange work, will be
more than meted to him there. The
home he was beautifying for his own
and his mother's sake, will be dupli
cated for him over there, and with far
greater beauties. And that young love
ot his just beginning to unfold, will still
continue to unfold ant: cause him to be
a worshiper at the shrine of all that is
beautiful, good and true.
Farewell, young friend. We miss thy
No more to bear the shepherd's crook :
Thy life had reached its early morn,
tot length of days had fondly looked.
We sometimes fancy we can hear
Thy footsteps on the Patron's floor;
We quickly lend a listening ear,
But hear no sounds at the inner door.
And when to music the Patron's march,
And halt balore the Master s chair;
And when the Master firmly asks,
'Who are those you are bringing
We fail to hear, as in days gone by,
the pleadings ol thy harvest hands;
But another stands with thee vie
In teaching how to beed the lands.
We miea thee in the Grange's work.
We sometimes whispered in thy ear
A certain word all must apeak,
Ere they can hope to enter there.
When you had reached that far off shore,
Had you to speak some annual word?
Or did you pass that sapphire door
On your deeds of doing good ?
So farewell now for a while.
We all must follow soon or late.
Our hands must needs till the soil
Until we can pass that "Inner Gate."
There is nothing that adds to the selling ralue or
the renting value of a house like good paint there
is nothing that makes home more home-like than
It pays to paiuU The better the paint, the better
pays In the beginning because it goes so far pays in
the end because it lasts so long, and looks so well, as
long as it lasts. There is no paint like it for beauty
and durability, for economy and satisfaction.
Ours is a complete Paint Store. We wan to bid on
the materials for your Painting, whether it be a gallon of
Mixed Paint or a Barrel of Oil and a hundred pounds of
Lead. We can save you money, and you know nothing
goes from this store that is not first quality. Glad to give
you color cards.

While 'he theoretical power of the
talis has been figured at about 56,000
horsepower, er gineers have found that
scarcely more than 25,000 horsepower is
practically available at the lowest stage
of the water. Of this total capacity
about 15,000 horsepower is now used for
manufacturing. The P. G. h. Company
consnmes about consumes about 9000
horsepower for its electric station, about
10UU horsepower is used by the paper
mills and about 5000 horaepower goes
to the flouring mills, woolen mill and
pulp mills. This ltaves about two-fifths
of the total capacity of the water power
still to waste down over the cataract.
Engineer Sullivan estimates the amount
of water required to operate the canal
and locks at not more than 100 hotse-
power. It is said that the P. G. E. Co.
Co. contemplates the building
of a wall from the headgates o f the canal
down about 1000 feet along its course,
in order to separate the navigation chan
nel from the feed way to the mills. A

retary of war. will examine and report
upon the canal and locks and the use of

An unusual degree of local interest
has been arousod by the announcement
thatKingling Bros.' famous big circus
is to exhibit in Portland Monday and
Tuesday, August 18 and 18. Several big
excursions will go from this vicinity ,and
local people will be well represented at
the big show. Those who go from here
should make every ertort to arrive in
time to see the magnificent new free
street parade, which takes place In the
morning preceaing me opening per
formance. The ( procession ia divided
into thirty enormous sections, each of
which is a complete parade, and pre
sents in its entirety a bewilderingly mag
nificent two-mile carnival of pageantry
such as the world has never seen. In
thiB gorgeous display are shown over
100 beautiful dens and cages of wild ani
mals. 500 horses, 30 elephants and near
ly a thousand people, and the costumes
throughout are of the finest silks, satins
and cloth of gold. The performance
that follows is tne most magnificent
arenic display ever presented by any cir
cus in America. It is entirely new this
year, and its novelty and magnitude
have created a sensation wherever the
show has exhibited.

The University of Oregon.
The University of Oregon will open
its 27th session at Eugene Wednesday,
September 17th. The outlook for the
year Beems at present very promising.
A number of new men have been added
to the faculty, all thoroughly fitted both
by preparation and by experience for
their work. The University buildings
are being repaired and improved during
the summer, the dormitory, gymnasium
and Leady hall receiving special atten
tion. Students intending to enter this fall
are invited to correspond with the presi
dent relative to their work. Catalogues
will cheerfull be sent on application.

City Drinking Fountain.
It is understood that Oregon City will
soon have a drinking fountain as the re
sult of the efforts of the city council and
the humane society. This fountain has
already been sent from tbe iron works
at Pennsylvania and before long will be
here. .Nothing, it seems to us, reflects
more credit on our people than the intro
duction of this necessary addition. The
humane society, under the able manage
ment of Miss Aneita McCarver, has
been unfailing in its efforts to procure
this, and the city council has always fa
vored it. We heartily commend the ac
tion in this particular, for we heartily
believe in any means that tend to allevi
ate tbe distress of either man or beast.

Nine times out of ten, "No" ia the
answer. It is then too late, however, to
do anything. The essential thing to do
is to prepare now for what may occur at
any time. An investigation of the Mas

your notice a contract that will exactly
suit your case.
If interested, send a postal, giving
