"Wafatoes on Exhibition. So many
People have called at the permanent ex
hibit to Inquire what wapatoes are, that
Superintendent Dosch decided to have a
jar preserved and placed on exhibition.
He found, however, that it was not so
easy to obtain the wapatoes, as the carp
have about exterminated them wherever
they can reach them. At last W. S. Fall.
ng, in deepening a ditch on his place on
he low ground near the foot of Mount
Tabor, found a number of wapato plants
ETpwlng there and saved up a lot of the
tubers or bulbs or corn or whatever the
wapato may bo called, and brought them
In to Colonel Dosch, who now has them
preserved and on exhibition. The Indians
in early days used to gather wapatoes
by the canoe-load, to eat, and swarms
of swan and canvasback ducks used to
fatten on them, but now the wapatoes,
like the Indians, have nearly passed away.
The "camas," another root the Indians
used to eat. Is still growing fresh and
green, as it flourtehes where the carp
cannot come. Mr. Dcsch has also lately
added to his exhibits a jar of African cu
cumbers, raised by E. J. Hayes, of Hood
Klver. This speoies of cucumber Is short
and thick and covered with sharp points,
like a horned toad, but Is said to be like
a singed cat better than it looks. Among
the numerous species of the cucumber
this is the antipodes of the long, smooth,
BC-dless, English cucumber.
Port of Portland Folper, D. H.
Etearns has just issued a Port of Port
land folder, that is an attractive adver
tisement of the- city as the Hew York of
the Pacific Coast. It contains a view of
Portland and Mount Hood, and a map
showing the vast territory drained by
the Columbia River and tributary lo
Portland, Including portions of Oregon,
TVashincton. Idaho. Montana. Wyoming,
Utah and Nevada. The map shows this
at a glance, and also that the Columbia
Basin has an area six times greater than
all New England and New Jersey. It
graphically demonstrates Portland's po
sition as the natural outlet to the sea.
The reading matter ably describes Port
land's commercial supremacy and the
great endowments of the Columbia River
Basin. A diagram shows the city's ad
Vantages in respect to railroad hauls. A
"wide distribution of the folder would be
pf great benefit to Portland.
Bridge Opening Delated. Repairs to
the steel bridge would have been com
pleted yesterday, but for delay in obtain
ing decking lumber from, the mills. A few
hours' work will now finish the deck
and sidewalks, but renewing of wooden
supports for the trolley wires will delay
the opening of the bridge to wagons two
or three days longer. These overhead
supports are made fast to the Ironwork,
and aro becoming somewhat decayed by
time. The trolley wires will also have
to be renewed, as they are set pretty lowt
and the friction of the trolley wheels
has worn them to a three-cornered shape,
the lower edge being sharp as a knife.
The Alblna public will not be sorry when
the steel bridge Is thrown open again, as
team travel now has to go out of its way
to the Burnside-street bridge, or to the
Alblna free ferry.
Hand Shot Off. "William Matoon, who
has been In the employ of James Hood, a
dairyman, on Government Island, in the
Columbia, while strolling around on Sun
day with a gun had the misfortune to
lose his right hand by the accidental dis
charge of the gun. The stump was ban
daged temporarily as well as possible
and he was taken to the hospital at
"Vancouver, where a fragment of the
hand was amputated and the proper
eurglcal treatment applied. Mr. Matoon
isan Industrious young man, 23 years of
age, and the principal support of his
paronts, and much sympathy Is ex
pressed for him. His mother was so

getting business ready for the meeting of
the Council tomorrow. The license com

by persons paying business licenses and
other matters. People are paying their

"Wbolesatb Cider Making. L. Bailey,
of Cornelius, is making cider on a large
scale, to be used in manufacturing vine
gar. He was in the city yesterday buying
whisky barrels by the hundred to put his
cider in. Ho says he made 157 barrels of
cider last Saturday. He has a mill and
press operated by steam capable of mak
ing about 10,000 gallons per day with the
best kind of apples. He expects to make
between 300,000 and 400,000 gallons this
year. His press has a squeezing capacity
of 1200 tons, and the pomace comes out
bo dry that it is burned. It would be
worth a year's existence to a boy to spend
a day around that press with plenty of

Trvo Girls Tell What They Think of
a Great Question.
PORTLAND, Or., Oct. 15. (To the Edi
tor.) Would you kindly allow me space in
the columns of your paper to ask the
would-be enterprising woman the name of
the illiterate city from which she intends
to import her carload of servants? It is
a shocking thing for her jto describe In
her way the demands of the average
servant or housemaid of "today. I am a
servant, or housemaid, and I have the
good fortune to work for a true American
lady, who does not find me so far be
neath her as to address me as her ser
vant I have been In this household for
three years, and I am quite sure I do
not take seven evenings and seven after
noons off in a week. I can also boast
of being an American citizen and an
Oregonian by birth.
I want to say that no good house
keeper need complain If her girl goes out
afternoons for an hour or two. We have
the same feelings, and they are to be
respected, the same as our mistresses.
The great trouble Is that half the women
in this city who employ help know noth
ing about housekeeping themselves, and
cannot manage their work correctly.
Therefore they must work their servant
16 hours out of 24 because of their. ig
norance. There are a number of would-be house
keepers In this city trying to pose as
society ladles and keep servants, who
will buy a roast of lamb fqr Sunday
dinner and warm it over for lunch Mon
day, make stew of it for dinner, and
hold the balance of it for the servant's
lunch Tuesday, while the other four
members of the household partake of
fifteen cents worth lamb chops.
Thursday is madam's reception day.
She tells me to go to her bureau and
bring forth the doiley, and she tells her
guests she has recently finished It; but
to my knowledge she has paid the sum
of $3 to a madam that makes a specialty
of that work. But what's the difference
if she does lie? 15he must shine In her
Here Is my method of housekeeping;
Monday morning, wash; Tuesday, Iron;
Wednesday, general sweeping day; Thurs
day, madam's Teception day; first and
third Friday, window washing. Another
thing, I wish to add Is that I do pot get
on my lenees to scrub a porch that is a
half a block around. It looks as good as
my neighbor Jap's porch, which his mis
tress compels hm to do. Such work Is
not adapted to the weaker sex; I cannot
understand why an intelligent woman
should demand of her servant to go down
and bend her back and bruise her knees
all to suit the whims of her mistress.
The. same woman would not do It for her
If the housekeepers would make house
keeping more of an art, give the good
cook and housemaid credit, and not be
telling her all the time abput her last
girl that worked for $12 per month arid
slept In the garret and did not want
an afternoon off in a week, she would
nof find herself at the employment bu
reau so often, nor have to place an ad
vertisement in the morning paper for "a
good servant girl, German or Swede pre
ferred." You may be sure, after the good Swede
and German girl learns a thing or two,
they know what It means when the ad
vertisement reads "German or Swede pre
ferred." It means from 5 in the morning
until 9 o'clock at night, a family of
eight, a 10-room house, children to look
after when there is no other employ
ment; and all the washing done at home,
for $15 per month 'or less, vif yon Will
work for It. The woman is probably a-would-be
society lady and she must have
pin money. Her husband draws a salary
of $160 per month. She pays $45 per month
for house hent.. Now. Is ,lt to be won
dered at that she Is trying to .down the
poor girl's wages that works from morn
ing till night? . ,
The true lady and her competent house
maid are almays looking forward to each
others' welfare. i
TWO SERVANT GIRLS.
SILVER WAS AT A DISCOUNT
Thirty Years Aso It Wr Worth
Less Than Gold,
"Enquirer" writes from Walla Walla to
The Oregonian to ask whether there was
eyer a time when ?20 In gold was worth
$20 50 In silver. For several years, say
between 1865 and 187f (It Is impossible
to remember the -date exactly), one could
exchange a $20 gold pieco at a broker's
for $20 50, and sometimes for $21, or
even mora in silver half-dollars or quar
ters, because sliver change was much
more abundant than gold coin. Of course,
if one wished to buy $20 gold pieces frcm
a broker, he was charged something moTe.
Those were tha days when greenbacks
were below par and when banks kept
their accounts In, three columns one each
for gold, silver and currency. At one time,
if a person had a check on a bank for $100
in gold, if he was willing to take sil
ver, for It, he could get a $110 in halves
or quarters. It Is not possible to give
off-hand any definite statement of ups
and downs of silver and the comparative1
values of gold, silver and currency in
tho.se days. "It is such an old, old story;
such a while gone by." The Mexican
dollar was in great demand in, those days
for shipment to China, and was worth
something- over a dollar. The trade dol
lar was coined to take Its place, but
although if contained more silver. It was
not a legal tender and would never pass
for as much as the Mexican dollar. Now
the Mexican dollar, containing m-re sil
ver than the American silver dollar, i3
worth in this country only about 50
cents. , There was also a time in 1879,
after specie payment was resumed ard
greenbacks were worth their face, that
silver was so scarce or so much needed
for change that It commanded a premium
of 1 to 2 per cent in some coast cities.
Melt down 40 American half-dollars now
and they will be worth only about ?8 in
gold, and silver is kept at its prrsent
value by the strict limitation of Its coin-
age. It is hoped that these few rrief
statements will give "Enquirer" a clear
understanding of the silver question,
WILL NOT CONSOLIDATE.

"Whose Baby Are Yon?"
Mark E. Swan's three-act farce, "Whose
Baby Are You?" which is billed to make
Its first appearance hero October 21, and
week at the Metropolitan Theater, Is one
of the funniest and cleverest pieces of
farcical construction that has been
seen on the stage for several years. The
piece was built for Jaugh-makingr pur
poses only. That is its only excuse for
existence. "Whose Baby Are You?" is
a sort of jolly hurrah from start to fin
ish, The story is a complicated and a
funny one. The characters are said to
bo the incarnation of the spirit of hu
mor. A company of farceurs direct from
New York interpret the farce. Several
new and clever vaudeville features a:e
introduced and the entertainment from
beginning to end is said to be bright and
sparkling in the extreme.
PROF. MUNYON'S NEW VENTURE.
Crowds Visit HI Biff Establishment
From the N. Y. Press, Oct. 2, 1900.
"I certainly have no reason to complain
of my reception in New 'York." said Pro
fessor Munyon, yesterday afternoon, as
he stood near the main doorway of his
splendidly appointed new medical insti
tute at Twenty-sixth street and Broad
way. The spacious salesroom and offices
on the ground floor were crowded. Thou
sands had passed through the wide door
ways in Broadway and in Twenty-sixth
street, all anxious to have a peep at the
well-known features of the distinguished
professor, who has done so much to revo
lutionize the old-time methods of treating
"I have opened this establishment." said
the professor, in an interesting chat with
a reporter, "simply because my business
demands it. As you well know, I have
always maintained a medical institute,
with a corps of skilled physicians, in this
city, but I have now supplemented this
by bringing here my business headquar
ters, advertising department, laboratory,
etc The laboratory that I .have opened
hero Is the fourth of a series, which now
includes Philadelphia, Toronto and Lon
don, but which later will take in Boston,
Chicago, San Francisco. Mexico City, etc.
But don't let me talk about this Now
York venture, look around and speak
about it yourself."
The huge plate-glass windows give tho
passer-by a splendid view jof the offices.
But ono has to Inspect the department
devoted to Munyon's Doctors to get a
correct Idea as to Just what this institu
tion means for the sick of New York. A
generous share of the ground floor space
of the mammoth establishment has been
surrendered to the medical branch. His
physicians ask no fee for either exami
nation or advice. They simply give the
patients the best advice p knowledge
and skill, and show them how to iret well.
In many cases a simple remedy Is all
that is needed. Then, again, if tho vis
itor has nothing the matter with him, he
is told so frankly. It is a great satis
faction when, a man has beep examined
from head to too by a competent phy
sician, and then told "there is nothing
the matter with him."
Professor Munyon's great success is due
to tireless energy, unceasing thought, and
an abiding faith In his system of im
proved Homoeopathic Remedies, a system
which enlisted the best thou?hts and
skill of the most eminent specialists and
chemists of the world. Munyon was not
prejudiced in favor of any one school of
medicine. He believed there was good to
be found in all; in fact, he knew it. His
mission was to take the proved curative,
tho' best thought of all the schools, and
combine tbcm in one. His remedies are
not "cure-alls" he his prepared a sep
arate cure for each diseased
