The manufacturing plant of the Ore
gon City Ice and Cold Storage Company
ia now being operated to its full capa
city. Tbe output is six tons per day.
Tbe process of manufacture it the
latest and quite interesting in its de
tails The water is obtained from an
artesian well 121 feet deep, thus pro
viding an inexhaustible supply of water
as pure as nature affords. The water is
first converted into Iteam, which pro
cess removes anv vegetable matter that
may chance to be held in solution. The
steam is then passed through conden
sing pipes into a re-boiler. Tbis re
boiler, or skimmer, is so arranged that
all oily substances rising to the surface,
flow off through a waste pipe. After
this the water passes through a cooling
coil. Tbe sudden cooling causes all
mineral substance to be precipitated.
Tbe cooled water 'hen filters through
Charcoal, and is conducted to the fore
cooler, which reduc.s the temperature
almost to the freezing point. It would
seem that no impurities could possibly
remain in the water now, but to be all
tbe more sure, it is then passed through
a sponge filter. Thence It goes to an
antomatic filter which can be adjusted
to put into each can exactly the same
number of pounds of water. Tbe water

$ Which WM You Use

We wonder how many of our customers UJ
really believe Lead and Oil is better than a good CD
prepared paint ? pftj
People have been deceived so often by "patent" IT)
paints, and fake mixtures that they are naturally pjs
distrustful of anything "prepared" in the paint line, lij
However, were it not for these lying fake mixtures, f Q
good prepared paint, would be used almost, exclus- (fo
ively. It is without doubt superior to any paint m
made of lead or oil only. v feaj
Lead and nil i nnw tmdmcr mv its k0$
tion. It is seldom used
a tnorough knowledge of painting. The modem
chemeist no longer specifies a paint pigment made
wholly of lead. If he did he would display his ignor- m
ance, for it has been proved beyond a question of ry
doubt that lead in itself is not a satisfactory pro- JwJ
tective coating. IT NEVER WAS SATlSFAC- 8
TORY. Before good prepared paint like Sherwin- flj
Williams was made, it WAS best. It is through ffj
long use that many people still think it best, but jij
lead and oil is dying a natural death simply because flj
something better has come to take its place.
If you are going to paint this year, send in Ki
your name so that we may put you on our mailing W
list for paint literature. It will cost you nothing (Y
but a postal card and we know we .can save you v

Robbed the Grave.
A startling Incident is narrated by
John Oliver, of Philadelphia, as follows :
" was in an awful condition. My skin
was almost yellow, eyes sunken, tongue
coated, pain continually in back and
sides, no appetite, growing weaker day
by dav. Three physicians had given me
up. Then I was advised to use Electric
Bitters; to my great joy, the first bottle
made a decided Improvement. I con
tinued their use for three weeks, and
am now a well man. I know they rob
bed the grave of another victim' No
one should fail to try them. Only 50
cents, guaranteed at Charman & Co'a.
The fishing season did not open very
well for the fishermen in this vicinity.
Last year several tons were shipped on
the opening day, but this year a sinorle
box was seen where a car load was seen
last year. This is partly due to the
high water occasioned by the melting
anow and partly to the scarcity of the
salmon. It is to be hoped that tbe
Government will soon take up the pro
pagation of the apring salmon instead of
tne questionable fall salmon.
