KEEPING EXPENSES DOWN.
The men who are in charge of the
appropriation bills in Congress and
the Republican leaders In both the
Senate and House have a bard task
before them.. The administration
has sounded a note of warning that
u policy of retrenchment must be
adopted and that appropriations must
be held down. The leaders have ap
proved this policy and members of
Congress generally say it is a move
in the right direction, Difficulty is
experienced, however; in putting Into
effect a practical working scheme to
save I'ncle Sam's money. At the
Navy Department it is insisted that
two battle ships must bo authorized
at this session. At the War Depart
ment there Is opposition to any plan
for a reduction of the standing army.
Senators and Representatives of both
political parties are extremely anxi
ous that an omnibus public buildings
bill shall pass this winter. Their con
stituents demand it and will think
.they are without influence in Wash
' ington If tbey are unable to get
through an authorization for a new
postothee building in their district.
From the arid states of the West
comes a demand for an extension of
the reclamation policy, while from
various parts of the country there la
In Honolulu. This will keep two fam
ilies of Hnwailans drunk for two days.
The Washington dispatches do not re
port whether the advocates of the
proposed legislation left any samples
of this Insiduous concoction with the
Congressional Committee. If they did,
It would be worth forty cents to lest
a gallon of the "stuff" on some Con
gressman who seems to regard the
Senate and House as a place where
two-day speeches can be made.
Portland takes fourth place among
cities of the I'nlted States In wheat
exports for the U months of the cur
rent year ending with November. This
is according to the report of the Sec
retary of the Treasury on breadstuff
exported from this country. Paget
Sound comes next after Portland. New
York is first. Philadelphia second and
Duluth third. Last year Portland
ranked second In the country in wheat
shipments. The figures just compil
ed of wheat exports do not Include
large shipments of wheat from Port
land to California. This tonnage Is
verv heavy each year.
Blooded chickens and cats from
various parts of the Pacific North
west have had their innings during
Hie past week at the show of the Ore
gon Poultry Pet Association. A
splendid show was held, many of the
prizes having been on exhibition at
the recent Seattle exposition. The
exhibit of pure Mood poultry shows
the advance In this industry In the
Northwest within the just few years.

Changeable weather this month Is
apt to develop colds. Keep a close
watch on the stock, and at once re
move an ailing bird from the flock. A
warm, dry coop or cage, and a one
grain quinine pill each night for three
nights in succession, will soon bring
the bird back to good health.
I kept close watch of my flock, and
the hens that began to lay first after
molting I put into separate pens.
From these pens I gathered my eggs
for hatching, and by so doing I hare
wonderfully Improved the laying qual
ities of my flock. This mating has
also been the means of rearing birds
with stronger constitutions more
hardy and vigorous.
In cold weather I feed oats and
bran mixed with milk and warm wa

night, and feed warm In the morning.
In the afternoon I feed corn. I keep

an insistent demand that rivers and
harbors improvements shall not be
further delayed. The State Depart
ment wants embassies provided in
some of the old world capitals to the
end that this country may increase
its prestige among the nations. And
so ad inflnitus. Members of Congress
who are for retrenchment in one di
rection insist that the appropriations
shall be Increased In other ways.
When the iniquity of an increased
appropriation approaches local de
mands even the most austere advo
cate of retrenchment "will take his
shriveled hand without resistance
and find him smiling as his step draws
near." The men who want to cut and
lash right and left are honest watch
dogs of the treasury, bu they "bay
a deep-mouthed welcome" as the ap
propriation draws near home. Chair
man Towney of the Appropriation
Committee will be the ablest and most
unpopular man in Congress if he suc
ceeds in cutting down expenses.
CLACKAMAS AND HER RAPIDS.
United States Senator George E.
Chamberlain did not visit Oregon City
during the recent congressional re
cess, but Senator Bourne and Con
gressman Hawley were here. Both
of these gentlemen promised the bus
iness men of Oregon City to do what
they could to secure an appropriation
for the removal of the rapids from
the Clackamas River. This much de
sired improvement has been promised
to ns for so long that we are skeptical
to a degree, and no wonder. Binger
Hermann, for many years Representa
tive from the first Oregon district in
congress, can trace his failure to se
cure a renomination at Albany to the
fact that he did not keep his promise
to clear the Clackamas rapids. Mr.
Hawley can digest this statement as
best he may.
While this issue is local to some
Beautiful colors, swinging t music
and gay laughter marked the first an
nual ball of the Oregon city dimmer
cltl Club at the Armory Wednesday
hlght. From S o'clock until past mid
night 150 people danced merrily to
the strains of Parsons' orchestra, al
most hidden on a stage banked with
grveuns and flowers. The nffatr was
one of the most enjoyable dancing
parties ever given in Oregon City and
will' become an annual event.
Perhaps the chief feature of the
Commercial Club's ball was the dec
orations. I'nder the direction of
Chairman Henry O'Malley, this com
mittee worked for days with notable
artistic, results. Many colored electric
lights were arranged In rows down
the length of the big hall. Hunting
was utilled to give a goneral back
ground and thousands of strips of
tissue covered the windows and walls.
In the center of the hall was hung n
huge bunch of mistletoe. The decora
tions extended out to the street,
w here a string of colored lamps swung
from one side to the other, illuminat
ing the entrance.
Beautifully gowned women con
trasted sharply with the evening dress
of the men. The arrangements were
perfect In every detail. Punch was
served at a pretty booth In a corner
of the Armory and in the Intermis
sions vocal numbers were rendered by
a male quartet front Portland. Pres
iuont Ryan's committees were care
fully chosen with a view to securing
results and more than a score of meu
accomplished wonders in a short time
to make the first annual ball of the
Commercial Club a deserved success.
The Christmas exercises of the
Deutcher Verelu were held Sunday
afternoon and evening In Kuapp's
Hall. The rooms were beautifully
decorated with evergreens and a
large tree was placed iti the center of
the hall, which was covered with light
The meeting was called to order by
President G. Schnoor, who in a few
words told of the occasion and wel
comed all present to partnke of the
good cheer of Christmas.
The programme was closed bv a
speech by the president and then San
ta Clans took charge of the meeting
and many beautiful presents were giv
en out. Among the presents were a
set of hand painted vases given bv
the entertainment committee, which
consisted of Mrs. Conine Hennlngsen.
Mrs. Dora Winkle, Mrs. C. Hartmann

Choose for the breeding mare a

have much stronger legs.
Horses off color and with peculiar
markings never sell so well as those
of solid colors; besides they are more
difficult to match.
