We undersell the credit stores by big percentages, as any thinking
person must know. You don't pay for anyone's goods but your own
here. We can sell cheaper and give you better goods and service than
the misguided dealer who tries to carry a stock on his shelves, and also
one on his books. If you deal at such a store, you can depend you pay
heavily for it. They cannot buy goods as cheap as the cash stores, be
cause they do not discount their bills. They are always like "a toad
under a harrow" and you pay for it.

The Sunday evening lectures at the
Unitarian church are having a wide
hearing and the attention of the pub
lic Is once more called to this course.
The third lecture will be given next
Sunday at 7:30 p. m. The lectures

a most Interesting and thoughtful
study. The outline of the next lec

WORK ON CELILO
With a force of 500 men The Dalles
-Celllo Canal Is being pushed to com
pletion as rapidly as the funds avail
able will permit, according to Captain
II. H. Robert, Corps of Engineers,
U. S. A. Early next month about luo
Astorians, under auspices of the
Chamber of Commerce of that city,
will go up the Columbia and inspect
the canal. Arrangements have been
made for them to make the trip over
the Spokane, Portland & Seattle Rail
road. They will disembark from the
train at the south approach of the
Oregon Trunk bridge, which spans the
river near the upper end of the arti
ficial waterway. From there they will
go over the entire canal site. At that
time both the concrete and excavation
work will be under full swing.
A few days later General Blxby,
the chief of the engineers, will reach
the district after having looked over
the rivers and harbors under the juris
diction of Major Kavanagh of Seattle.
It Is probable that General Bixby will
make the trip from Pasco down the
Columbia River as far as Celllo on
the government steamer Umatilla, In
