A great many Pacific Coast people,
when contemplating tripeast and when
bringing friends west, know yery little
about the interior lines, and the object of
this article is to afford reliable informa
tion. In the first place for good time and
service, select a route via St. Paul and
Minneapolis, because the lines that way
are continuous under one system with
out any change of cars, and every man,
from peanut agent op, is a courteous, re
liable and exierienced officer, ready to
aid ana protect you in any emergeLcy
and capable of making you feel at home
and comfortable during the long journey.
Then fee that your ticket reads via the
Wisconsin Central .lines because that
thoroughfare affords strictly first-class
service, and the meals on its dining cars
(always reasonable in price) are equalled
by few and excelled by none. Geo. S.
Batty, 246 Stark St., Portland, Oregon, is
g-neral agent for this company and will
cheerfully furnish you a neat and handy
calendar and full information on the sub
ject of transportation, if addressed or
called upon, and any agent will, upon
application, sell you a ticket over the
Wisconsin Central lines.
The Grandest Remedy.
Mr. R. D. Greeve, merchant of Chil
howie, Va. certifies that he id con
sumption, was given up to die, sought
all medical treatment that money could
procure, tried all cough remedies he
could hear of, but got no relief ; spent
many nights sitting up in a chair; was
induced to try Dr. King's New Discov
ery, and was cured by use of two bottles.
For past three years has been attending
to business, and says Dr. King's New
Discovery is the. grandest remedy ever
made, as it has done so much for him
and also for others in his community
Dr. King's New Discovery is guaranteed
for Coughs, Colds and Counsumption.
It don't fail. Trial bottles free at Char-
man & Co.'s drug store. Regular size
50 cents and $1.00.
How to (iet a Public Office.
Many desirable offices are within the
gift of the new administration. Those
who wish to know what places can be
had and how to get them, can obtain
this information by sending 75 cents to
Soule & Co. , Washington, D. C, for the
"U. S. BLUE BOOK." showing all
government offices and salaries with
Ciyil Seryice rules, sample examination
questions, etc. Under present laws
women stand an equal chance with men
for positions that insure a comfortable
income for life. The "Blue Book" gives
complete instruction for office seekers of
both sexes, and is besides a valuable
book of reference much in demand.

To meet the needs of large number of '
people both old and young, who live In
remote section of the country or in
place where the school are not ad
vanced, the University of Oregon haa
made arrangements to conduct a fonr
Largest body, year's course of study by correspondence.
The plan is to make this course entirely
free except a small charge which will
cover the actual expenses. This charge
will be in the form of a small sum for
each lesson sent out. It will not exceed
what is actually paid out for postage and
clerical work in conducting the course.
Stuilents will be expected to order their
text books either through local dealers
or from the Portland book stores. The
course will be divided into five depart
ment of study: English' literature,
Latin, history and civic, mathematics,
science. Four years of work have been
planned in each of these departments,
as he chooses.
The course will lie conducted as fol
lows: Any person who wishes to take
one or more of the studies may send in
his name to the University of Eugene.
Oregon. The word "Extension Depart
ment" should be written on the envel
ope. He should also state clearly what
lines of study he wishes to take np.
Directions will be sent to him at once
for procuring text books and instructions
concerning the details of the course.
Questions will be mailed to students
covering definite portions of the text
books from time to time as they are
needed. These should be carefully
answered and the answers mailed to the
"Extension Department" of the univer
sity. They will be corrected and re
turned, together with a new set of
questions. This is in brief the scheme
of the course.
The only charge that will be made
will be for the list of questions and for
marking the answers which are sent in.
It is thought that this can be reduced to
10 cents for each set of questions and 10
cents for examinining each set of an
swers This small fee will probably
cover the actual expenses of the court
and nothing further is desired by the de
partment. It is to be noted that this course is
open to all persons who desire to en
gage in study. It will cover the ground
of the usual good high school coarse, and
the questions and suggestions which will
be sent out may olten be used with
profit in reviews and examinations in
hiuh schools. No person should feel
that a course of this kind is a complete
substitute for a good school, but if the
school is not available for any reason,
then much advancement in sound learn
ing may be made by taking a correspond
ence course. Full outines of the course
will be sent free upon application.

Engineering: Magnziue for February.
The Engineering Magazine.New York,
tor February well sustains tbe high
standard which was set by the "Pros
perity Number" of January last, and
satisfies the keen expectations wakened
by that widely noticed issue. "The Early
Promise of American Maritime Power,
which occupies the leading place is es
pecially pertinent in view of the awaken
ing interest evinced by the country in
ship building and marine commerce' In
this paper, a terse and pointed review of
the conditions which account for recent
American indifference to such matters
leads up lo a striking exposition of our
former supremacy, both actual and po
tential, as depicted by that acute ob
server, Alexis de Tocqueville.
Col. Geo. E. Waring, Jr., handles a
topic on which he is an acknowleded
American authority "The Relation ot
Good Paving to Street-Cleaning" the
most actively interesting department of
modern municipal affairs. Similarly
important, in yiew of the widespread
agitation for smoke-prevention, is Prof.
A. E. Outerbridge's article on "The Ad
vantages of Mechanical Staking."
Win. Martin Aiken, supervising archi
tect of the treasury department, treats
of "The Architecture of Our Govern
ment Buildings," and gives for the first
time a history of the organization and
functions of the office ; the article has
many fine illustrations showing the ef
fect of historic and climatic influence on
style. Another strikingly illustrated pa
per is Thomas Tonga's "Mining Tunnels
of Colorado," and "Pioneer Locomotives
of England and America," by Alfred
Mathews, has many rare cuts and much
unfamiliar history of our first railroad
I enterprises. Mr. P. Kreuzpoiptner
makes a most interesting argument for
"Standardizing the Testing of Iron and
Steel." There are three other leading
articles, and the usual complete review
and index of the Engineering Press,
which is further enlarged by the inclus
ion of the leading French and German
Tub Engineering Magazine,
