Portland, Oregon. Dear Sirs
I used six dozen of your fruit jars last season and am very much pleased with them.
The Economy Jar is the nicest looking and the best jar I have ever used.
I canned all kinds of fruits, vegetables, meats, fish, pickles and chicken, and hadfine
success with the Economy Jar.
. I was awarded all the first prizes, consisting of 8 blue ribbons, at the Oregon State
Fair, 1903, for my exhibit of canned fruits and jelly.
Keno, JNev., Sept. A. man
with drafts and checks amounting
to several hundred dollars, togetb
er with a large amount of money
on his person, was arrested while
drunk on the streets of Truckee
last night. Three hours after ' he
was locked securely in the jail, the
officer went in to see if he was safe
and found him tightly wedged in
the sewer pipe.
io his drunken fancy, he thought
he could escape through the 12-inch
Dine, and attempted to - force -his
At the first joint his shoulders
caught and in this position he was
found by the officer. His limbs had
swollen and be could neither move
one way or the other. A block,
tackle acd five mfen were brought
to his aid. Their combined efforts
could not move him.
Then it was decided to tear
away the brick and iron of the jail
building. In this manner the
pine was reached and forn away
from around the man. He suffered
agony. It was found necessary to
cut his shoes from his feet.
The checks found on his person
are on a New York bank, in favor
of John Ray. The man refused to
give his name.

once the liveliest railroad town of
Nevaea, with a population varying
from 3 rao to 4ooo, but now a de
serted pile of shacks has been tak
en possession of by thousands of
wildcats. Thev are roaming the
stroets making their abode in ram-
shaekle buildings. At the sight of
human beings, they scamper over
each other, hundreds of them,
their mad flight for safety. This j
condition is caused by the fact that
the railroad people when leaving,
left the old family cats to their fate
Two or three hundred of them wre
abandoned in this way more than
a year ago and the thousands of
wild felines today are the result.
The Oregon commissioners bought all my fruit to represent Oregon at the St. Louis
Eair. I have been requested to put up fruit for. the Lewis & Clark Centennial Exposition

them to any jar I have ever used.

The two Mason Jar caps has been examined. Upon examination the metal of the
new Mason cap was found to be pure zinc. ' The small pin holes in the old Mason cap
were undoubtedly caused by the action of vegetable acids. As a result the fruit in the
jar must have been greatly contaminated with poisonous zinc compounds.
1 regard the use of jars with zinc caps as very unsanitary and even dangerous.

New York, Sept. 24. It is yearly
becoming more and more of a prob
lem for New York families to know
what to do with children.
In only two clashes of homes are
they welcomed, the cheap, dirty,
uncomfortable tenements on the
lower East Bide, and in private
houses. - '
It is an actual fact that a man
with an income from $60 to $200 a
week, is compelled to put in- the
hardest kiud of hard work, if he
wants to secure a dwelling in - pro
portion to his means, providing he
has children. ;
Landlords of the better class a,
partments are gradually becoming
converts. to the theory that chil
dren are unnecessary evils, and
tenants who have them are per
emptorily ordered to move as soon
as their leases expire.
This fact has been accentuated
during the past few days by the ac
tion Andrew Bowsej owner of an
apartment in the aristocratic River
side Drive section, in visiting four
of his tenants.
Each of the men paid from $2000
to $36oo a year for their apartments
and paid it promptly. But they

Portland, Sept. 24. Covered with
scars and bruises as a result of a
terrible battle with a wounded bear
D. M. Roberts and E. E. Sleret of
Gresham ar'ived in Portland this
morning, from the south fork of tbe
Santiam river. That they escaped
from the infuriated beast and liv
ed to tall of their experience is con
sidered remarkable, for more than
once during the sanguinary fight
they were at the mercy of the bear.
Roberts and Sleret with Charles
Gedamke and Lonis Sdattuck, also
of Gresham, made up a hunting
party that started for the Santiam
several days ago. Oae day last
week Sleret and Roberts were "still"
hunting for deer at a large huckle
berry patch on the mountain aide.
Sleret, who was some distance from
his companion, suddenly came
upon a large brown beat, and shot
it at a distance ot 20 feet. Ibe
bear fell to' the ground - and rolled
over, and Sleret became excited and
ran to it, forgetting that a wounded
bear nearly always gets up and
This bear being no exception,
immediately arose and fiercely at
tacked the hunter. He had shot
at it several times, at close quarters
and the magazine of his 3o-3o Mar
lin was empty. He turned and
shouted to Roberts to come to his
aid. In a run of forty feet through
the brush the bear knocked him
down twice, and was about to kill
him when Roberts appeared on the
ecene. The animal left Sleret and
attacked Roberts. The latter un
fortunately, stood in a position
where he dared not shoot at the
bear for fear of hitting his friend.
Before he could change his position
the animal had attacked him, and
there was a hand to hand battle of
several minutes between the two
men and the bear.
Roberts received a severe wound
on the right leg from the animal'a
paw. The bear with decidedly the
best of the fight, suddenly showed
fear and fled.
