Be Profitable Here.
Powder Has Supplanted HbbhiI
Labor in RemoTlng Stamps.
"Farmers -who have considerable lano
clearlns t odo in Oregon and Washington,
have largely discarded the old method
of digging stumps out by hand, and now
blow them out with powder. The blast
ing process Is quicker and cheaper, as
25 to 50 rts worth of powder will throw
a sood-slzed stump Into the air and at the
same time split It into splinters, so that
to Chicago. The difference in cost of pro- Tit can be easily burned. In the old way,
J. W. Bailey, State Dairy and Food
Commissioner, Is trying to secure a con
densed milk factory for Portland. This
Is the outlook in a nutshell: Portland
buys from 35 to 50 carloads of condensed
milk every year from the East. It can be
made here cheaper than it can be boughf.

be eold In Chicago at a handsome profit
after paying transportation.
But the Pacific Coast would furnish a
large market in. Itself, and with the Ori

the field is ample for all that Oregon can
produce for some years to come. On
the n-bject cf trade in this article with
China, Mr. Bailey yesterday received the
following letter from Henry B. Miller,
Consul at Ching King, but temporarily at
Shanghai, China, March 9 In accordance
with your request, I have made further Inves
tigation concerning the prospects for an .In
crease In the condensed milk trade of China.
Z find that considerable of the condensed
milk coming to China Is used by the Chinese,
and dealers inform me that the consumption
is rapidly growing, and they believe that It
will reach immense proportions. It Is now
carried In stock by Chinese dealers far Into
the Interior, -as well as by those in the treaty
The Easle brand ems to be most In de
mand amongst the Chinese. They prefer the
sweetened -variety. "Very little condensed
cream is used by the natives.
The trade In condensed milk in China must
be looked after from two standpoints the de
mand of the foreigners and that of the na
tives. The natives do not care for any but the
sweetened varieties. Fancy colored labels on
the cans (of flowers and figures) will add to
the attractiveness and increase the sales.
In the matter of character of labels, it
should be noted that the Chinese admire flow
ers, birds, fishes, animals, human figures and
scenery. A farm scene with cows and calves
pleases them greatly. It would also be a good
idea- to have Chinese characters for milk on
Much success has been met with In Increas
ing sales o foreign things In China by Judi

Certain kinds of pictures are very attract

advertisements are hung up In their houses as
works of art. A proper use of Chinese writing

It Is not an uncommon thing to see common
foreign advertisements peddled about the streets
for sale. The fentlment that exists amongst the
Chinese In favor of the use of milk offers a
good field for lncreaslns the sales of Ameri
can condensed milk by Judicious advertising.
Pictures constitute the best method of ad
vertising amongst the Chinese One of the
important Influences in causing the Increased
consumption- of condensed milk In China Is
the sentiment that the Chinese have regarding
It. They class milk with glnslng In its powers
to revive youthful characteristics to old age.
At the beginning of "Winter milk Is much
sought after, as It is considered very stimu
lating and fattening. It is used mainly during
the "Winter months, and as Spring advances
Its use Is lessened, and in Summer time it Is
In the interior of China cows' milk and
goats' milk are sold during the Winter months
for 800 cash, or one Mexican dollar, per
month for a dallj allowance of a pint. It is
very poor stuff, and generally watered and
adulterated to the utmost.
The Chinese are learning to use condensed
milk for baby food, and as this use is ex
tended, as it no doubt will be, the consump
tion will show a marked Improvement.
As a matter of advertisement of condensed
milk to the Chinese, I would suggest two
lines, one Indicating its virtues as baby food,
a picture of a child at a mother's breast, and
the other thought would be Its value In giv
ing sleekness and youthful vigor to old age.
These advertisements should be prepared by
a compentent Chinese scholar. A novice or
poor scholar would be certain to get the char
acters of such form as to either make them

In China in proportion to the population It is
one of the luxuries, and not many of the great
mass of population are able to buy It.
The use of milk by the Chinese being con
fined almost entirely to the "Winter season,
naturally prevents the development of dairy
industries, and seems to Insure a permanent
and growing market for condensed milk as
fast as it is Introduced to the use and atten
tion of the millions of China.

this way the stumps could be reduced to

One Month to Raise the Remaining
The Cleveland, O., papers tell of the
raising of a debt of $114,3S2 on their Young
Men's Christian Association building in
SO days. The Cleveland Leader speaks
of the movement in these words: "All
debt-clearing records for Cleveland have
been broken by the Young Men's Chris
tian Association. Thirty days ago the
indebtedness of the association was $114,
3S2 It, and today the association has a
surplus of $7 40. The finance committee
had 30 days in which to collect subscrip
tions. A. coterie of gentlemen well known
in business and philanthropic circles bent
their energies to the task before them
with a determination that swept away
all obstacles and which resulted in free
ing the association from debt for the
first time in seeral years."
In New York City the association has
recently paid off all the debts on all Its
branches, amounting to $300,000, giving the
organization 52,000,000 worth of unincum
bered association buildings In NewYork
The local association Is making an ef
fort to raise $45,000 to pay the debt on the
Portland building, and make greatly need
ed additions and improvements. The only
way -that this can now be accomplished
Is for the public-spirited citizens to come
forward and subscribe the remaining $15,
500 needed. This must be pledged be
fore June 1 or all the subscriptions given
so far, amounting to $29,500, will be void.
Several years ago W. S. Ladd offered
the Portland association the quarter block
where Olds, Worrman & King's store
stands, on condition that $73,000 be pledged
to erect an appropriate building, and the
undertaking fell through because the last
$12,000 could not be secured. If the pres
ent effort Is successful, the association
will have a $90,000 down-town property
entirely out of debt, with a three-story
pressed brick building 100 feet square, pro
viding a good equipment for present
needs of the association with its 100
members, 330 men in educational classes
and 650 using the gymnasium. It Is esti

James H. Eckels, the president of the
Chicago association, who visited Portland

said these striking words a short time ago
in an anniversary address:
"The appeal which the Young Men's

makes to business men Is not and ought
not to be regarded as ar appeal for
charity. It is. Instead, the asking of an

SILVERTON, Or., April 29. (To the
Editor.) Allow me to acknowledge the
kindly write-up of myself which appeared
in the Daily Oregonian of Saturday, the
27th Inst, and while I duly appreciate
the favor of bringing my art before the
public, by Oregon's great newspaper, I
fear your reporter has done me honor
over much. At any rate, I feel It in
cumbent upon myself to modify some of
the statements therein, for they will place
me In a false position, which artists and
connossieurs will, readily see.
It is quite common for artists to make
busts from pictures, and especially for
Professsor French to do so.
The difficulty of getting satisfactory
results from photographs is when the
pictures are visibly contradictory, and
many of them are. The camera never
tels any lies; it gives the features and ex
pression as they were at the sitting, and
if a person wishes two, to look alike, he
must be in the same mood of mind and
feeling, and present the same cast of
features to the Instrument. It Is a com
mon experience that photos of every-day
acquaintances are sometimes barely rec
ognizable, and through no fault of the
artist, either, but because the sitter was
in an unusual frame of mind, and pre

RECEPTION TO MR. CAPLES.
Ex-Consul to "Valparaiso "Welcomed
at Ta.ylor-Street Church.
The informal reception to John '.
Caples, ex-Consul to Valparaiso, In the
Sunday-school room of the Ta lor-Street
Methodist Church last evening was the
occasion of the assembling of a large
number of that gentleman's friends. As
a prelude, the hymn "Blest Be the Tie
That Binds" was sung. Prayer and
thanks were offered for Mr. Caples safe
return after four years' absence in Chile.
Mr. Caples was warmly welcomed In a
neat speech by W. Y. Masters, who re
ferred to the guest of the evening as onei
of the oldest members of the Taylor-Street
Church, and one who has been a promi
nent figure In Its history and progress.
Mr. Caples thanked those present for the
manffestation of good will and referred
to his having traveled over 25,000 miles
since he left Portland, four years ago.
He spoke of the changes that took place
in the church membership while he was
absent from Portland, and paid tribute to
the worthy members who "were called
away from earth. He mentioned several
of them by name and dwelt with fervency
upon their lives and works.
"America" -was sung by the audience
and the reception ended with the serving

Mr. .Holman moved to strike out of the
motion the committee to formulate a plan
for the charter. He said this was only a
temporary meeting and several of the
members were not present. He thought
any attempt to formulate a charter should
not be made until after permanent or
ganization had been effected.
Mr. Morgan, as a substitute for the
two previous motions, submitted the fol
lowing: "Resolved, that the meeting pro
ceed at once to an informal consideration
of the powers vested In us; second, to
decide what preliminary work, if any,
can be done previous to a permanent or
ganization; third, in what manner the said
preliminary work, if any, may be done.
He moved the adoption of the resolution.
There being no second to this motion
the chairman announced that a vote on
Mr. Holman's amendment was In order.
Mr. Montague asked If It was intended
for the proposed committee to formulate
a charter, or only the outline of one.
Mr. Teal said the Intention was for the
committee to formulate a general plan or
outline for a charter and to submit it
to the committee. This seemed to Him
'In the line of expediting the work of
the commission. If the commissioners do
not approve of the plan submitted they
'could reject it.

Educational Meetings for Parents.
R P. Robinson, County School Super
intendent, is arranging an educational
gathering for Montivilla, to be held in
one of the churches next Friday even
ing, for the benefit of parents. The regu
lar Institute for teachers will take place
Saturday in the Montavilla schoolhouse,
but, as parents cannot attend during the
day, the evening educational meeting
will be held for their benefit, so they can
learn what is being done In the public
schools. An Interesting programme will
be given. Professor Robinson will make
an address, urging the necessity of close
sympathy and co-operatIon on the part of
parents toward the public schools, and
expla.ning some of the problems that
have to be met in educational work. He
has found these gatherings helpful, and
will continue them all over the county.

Chamber of Commerce Favors Con
tract for O. R. & N.
The trustees of the Chamber of Com
merce decided, at yesterday's meeting, to
take steps to have the Portland & Asiatic
Steamship Company awarded the contract
for carrying the United States mails be
tween Portland and Asia. This Is the
line which the O. R. & N. Co. has put
on the Pacific. It has three big ocean
greyhounds in Its fleet, and others will
be added as they are needed. The line
will cost the O. R. & N. Co. foOO.000 a
year. While there will be very little
money In the mall contract, Portland's
prestige will be increased if Its own steam
ship line carries the mail.
, A letter from the Merchants' Asso

an effort to obtain night rates on tele

and Eastern points, which do not have
this rate. The trustees Indorsed the pro
posal and President Hahn will appoint

The meanest case of low-lived theft and
vandalism reported this season comes
from J. M. Miller, who lives at East Nine
teenth and Burnside. Monday night,
18 rosebushes, each the choicest of Its va
riety, were removed from his grounds.
They were 3 years old, and had been
transplanted In a straight row four weeks
ago, hence the work of removing them
was comparatively easy.

PORTLAND. April 30.-(To the Editor.)
Regarding the recent proposal on street
signs, embodying an extensive advertising
scheme which your paper referred to as
being received Tlth some favor, the" argu
ments in its behalf, 'so far as-efficiency
and economy are concerned, seem consis
tent, but does it not Involve objections
of a very radical nature? It appears to
be primarily at variance with the self-
respect of an able-bodied city: By adopt
ing such an arrangement the city at- once
proclaims Itself unable to meet Its le
gitimate expenses and places Itself in the
same category with the farmer who pre
fers to have his barn look like a store
house for "liver pills" or some similar
product, than to Incur the expense of
painting It himself. Then again, there
are numerous corners where there are
neither trees or posts. Under such con
ditions many citizens do not object to
the location of a small, neat sign on the
corner of their house or store, but the
9x29 inche signboard proposition would Im
pose a serious tax on a man's loyalty to
his city's needs.
Providing the city determines to take
up the work, it is evidently a matter of
considerable expense, and Is worth doing
well. The various suggestions thus far
.offered for wooden and sheet metal .signs,
do not seem to hold out much' libpe for
permanent economy- Would It- not be
better to have cast-iron signs 4x14 Inches
and of sufficient thickness to give fair
strength? The letters should be fiat-faced
and well raised above the back-ground.
- A visit to Portland is Incomplete with
out devoting at least one day to the Co
lumbia River and its magnificent scenery.

Bohemian Pheasant Eggs Ordered.
T. Schaeffenberg, of Mount Tabor, says
he has sent to the Old Country for 300
Bohemian pheasant eggs, which he pro
poses to set under bantam hens in an
effort to stock the state with this line
of the pheasant family. It Is expected
that at least 75 per cent of he eggs will
be received in good condition and will
hatch, although they will have to be
transported many thousands of miles. He
undertook to secure the eggs of gray
partridges from Germany, but there Is a
law In that country against the exporta
tion of the eggs.

Speaking of coffee, a nurse of Wilkes
barre. Pa., writes: "I used to drink strong
coffee myself, and suffered greatly from
headaches and indigestion. While on a
visit to my brothers, I had a good chance
to try Postum Cereal Food Coffee, for
they drank It altogether In place of ordi
nary coffee. In two weeks after using
Postum I found I was much benefited and
finally my headaches disappeared and also
"Naturally I have since used Postum
among my patients, and have noticed a
marked benefit where coffee has been left
off and Postum used.
"I observe a curious fact about Postum
used among mothers. It greatly helps the
flow of milk in cases where coffee Is in
clined to dry it up, and where tea causes
"I find trouble In getting servants to
make Postum properly. They most al
ways serve It before It has been 'boiled
long enough. It should be boiled 15-or 20
minutes, and served with cream, when It
is certainly a delicious beverage." Mrs.
