School roit Incorrigiblbs tor Port
laud? The School Board -will probably
Boon have to take under consideration the
establishment in this city of a school for
incorrlgibles, such as many other cities
already have. The boys of thiB city
are no worse than those of other cities
probably no better but there is, among
the pupils in the public schools, a per
centage -who have no respect for their
teachers, nor for the rules which are
made for the government of the schools,
and who cannot be coerced or restrained.
They have no fear of corporal punishment,
as their parents never punish them and
always raise a great row if ony one else
does. The school for incorriglbles Is for
the benefit of such pupils. It is in cities
where such schools are established the
only school in the city where corporal
punishment is inflicted and is the halting
place between the-public school and the
reform school. Those who are sent to
this school have an opportunity to re
form and get back to the school where
they belong. Those who will not change
their course stand a good show for find
ing places In the reform school, and
to keep on going from bad to worse. The
fact that there is a school for incorrigl
bles in a city has the effect of restrain
ing many pupils In the schools from
conducting themselves so as to be likely
to be sent there, to be placed under the
care of a professor of corporal punish
ment. Dalles Power Plant Soon to Start.
The new long-distance electric transmis
sion plant to supply power to The Dalles
from the falls of White River, 27 miles
away, is to be ready for operation within
10 days. The power-house at the foot of
the double fall is completed, and the
water-wheel and generator to supply
1500 horse-power of electricity are being
Installed. The six-foot dam across the
river at the head of the upper fall is com
pleted, and a 54-inch pipe 800 feet long,
with a drop of 16S feet, Is ready for use
as soon as the water-wheel is installed.
There are three No. 6 copper wires and
a telephone wire strung from the power
station to The Dalles. The "Wasco "Ware
house & Milling Company, has a
flouring mill of a capacity of
S00 barrels per day completed and
plenty of wheat on hand all
ready to start business as soon as the
'power is turned on. This company owns
the. power plant, the capacity of which
can be doubled if necessary, as the 54-lnch
pipe at the power station carries less
than half of the water in the river at the
period of lowest low water. The pro
moters consider their power plant and
transmission line one of the best in the
state, and they will be able to supply elec
tricity for lighting and for manufactur
ing purposes as well ns for operating their
own mill and warehouse.
Vancouver RAilroad Nearing Com
plexion. The railroad from Kalama to
Vancouver, "Wash., Is rapidly approaching
completion. The camp in the north end
of Vancouver, with its large assortment
of tents, dining tents, cooking tents, and
dining-cars, puts one in mind of the rail
road camps of the days of construction
of transcontinental railroads. A ehort
and much mixed train affords dally com
munication between Kalama and Van
couver at Irregular hours. It is only
a question of a short time when regular
passenger trains will be running. Tho
heavy fill, just inside the city limits. Is
practically completed, and a short spur
is being constructed to a gravel bank near
Vancouver. A steam shovel Is being
put In readiness preparatory to ballasting
this end of the line. The steel bridges
and stone culverts along the line are
making rapid progress toward comple
tion, since the operation of the line over
temporary trestles facilitated the hand
ling of material for them. When the
road Is completed there will not be a
wooden structure on it; everything will
be steel, stone and concrete, and it will
be one of the best bits of railroad in this
College Association Met. The annual

Cows Must Not Tinkle Bells at
Uight. Residents of other cities noticing
the complaints made to the Common
Council of Portland in regard to the
nuisance of cowbells, and the petitions
presented, asking that cows be required
to take off their bells before going to bed,
might well imagine that Portland Is still
a country village. Some time ago the
people of Sellwood, after a desperate
struggle, succeeded In having that tract
included within the pound limits. The
cows were prevented from running at
large there, and the citizens have not
been deafened by the din of cowbells
since. A wide strip between Sellwood and
East Portland was left outside the pound
limits, and on this cows In large num
bers have grazed. They sported bells of
all sizes and In all keys of the musical
scale. Now a complicated ordinance, in
volving tho repeal of several other ordin
ances, has been passed by the Council,
Including within the pound limits a strip
of territory north of Sellwood a mile in
width on which cows hereafter must not
be allowed to roam at large, but an ex
ception is made in favor of horses and
mules, not wearing bells. Persons re
siding on this strip will do well to bear
this new ordinance in mind and look up
their cows if they would avoid trouble.
In response to the complaints of residents
on Marquam's Hill It has been ordered
by the Council that the cows in that dis
trict must have their bells removed at
night. Much has been said in poetry
about bells, evening bells, sweet chiming
bells, wild bells, monastery bells, sleigh
bells, and dinner bells, but no one has
had a word to say in favor of the cow
bell. Probably there are few things
which can so successfully destroy a
night's rest as a bell on a cow, which is
likely to break the stillness at any hour
of the night, like sweet bells Jangled out
of tune. The fox is said to have charac
terized the bell as a brazen-faced, open
mouthed, hollow-hearted, long-tongued,
noisy Instrument of Satan. The fox
probably had a cowbell In his mind, but
the description fits bells in general very
No Choice Apples in Great Apple
Country. County Recorder Beach, who
paid a visit to relatives In the Rogue
River Valley, endeavored, while in that
great apple-producing section, to procure
some really choice apples to bring homo
as curiosities. He was not particular
as to the variety but found it impossible
to secure any. G. V. Carter, one of the
prominent orchardists there, said he had
sold 10,000 boxes of choice apples, and had
none left for himself. Olwell Bros., who
have a 160-acre orchard, had sold 40,000
boxes and had no choice apples left, and
It was the same way with other grow
ers. All the growers of apples or pears
had money, and the country appeared to
be in a very prosperous condition. Grow
ers said it was no use to ship their choice
fruit here, as the commission men did not
get so much for it as they could get at
home. Thl3 probably explains why only
second or third-class apples are to be
found on tho market here

SAYS HE FATTENS CLAMS.
Captain Brannan Puts in Practice a
Captain Absalom Bonfantl Brannan,
formerly one of the stars which corrus-
catcd In the galaxy of the Portland po-
lice force, but for a number of years a ,
citizen of Long Beach, where he is chas
ing after the phantom "good health," was
in the city a day or two ago, and was
speaking of the fine fat clams which form
a large part of his diet. He mentioned
especially the large New York or paper
shell or mud clam, which is so plenti
ful in the bay back of Long Beach, and
which he pronounced the best of all
clams. The friend to whom he was talk
ing remarked that he had litely received ,
a lot of these clams and that they were
nothing but "skeletons," vand not worth J
"But I put up my clams and fatten
them before eating them," said Brannan.
"You do, hey?" was the response. "How
do you fatten them?" j
"Oh, I Just sprinkle meal over them
and they get as fat as butter in a dny
or two." I
"I have heard of clams and oysters
being fattened In that way," answered his
friend, "but I never took any stock In
It. In fact I have seen sacks of oysters
lying In front of restaurants In this city
with oatmeal thickly sprinkled over the
sacks to give an Idea thit the oysters
were being fattened. My idea is that It
would be Jubt as sensible to nail you
up on a box and throw mush at the box
with the Idea of fattening you, as to
sprinkle meal on the shell of an oyster '
or a clam to fatten them." j
Brannm insisted that the theory was ,
all right and offered to leave the matter
to any biologist or psychologist or any
other ologist in any school in Oregon.
If any one knows the true Inwardness
of this old theory of fattening clams and
oysters, he will please make It known.

AMONG THE CLUBWOMEN
AMAZING GROWTH OF "WOMAN'S IX
' TEREST IN CIVIC IMPROVEMENT.
Every City and Village CIhb Has
Nott a Committee for Cleaning
and Beautlf j-iHgr Streets.
There was sound philosophy and an
echo from the great reforms of the past
in the words of Henry Ward Beecner
when he said: "The cause is Just, the
object is all right, now bring on your
fanatic to carry It out." In the mat
ter of civic Improvement the "fanatic"
seems to be arising In the clubwoman If
being fanatical means to be dead in ear
nest and determined to convert the world
to that way of thinking.
From tho length and breadth of the
land the cry has gone up, and not a club,
not va federation but has has Its civic
league or village improvement committee.
At the Louisville blennal Mrs. Hall,
of Montclair, N. J., addressed the con
vention on the subject, and so impres
sively, that the effect it created ha3
never been outgrown, and from that may
be dated almost the beginning of gen
eral Interest In civics among women.
She took the ground that the matter
of beautifying the city was pre-eminently
woman's work, as men, from their
very nature, could not enter Into these
small details, any more than Into the
small details of housekeeping. She said In
part, women have succeeded along these
lines just so far as they established the
fact In the mind of the public that they
were trying to assist and suggest, rather
than demand these reforms. In conciu-
sion fine gave tnis warning: "Leaa, out
do net so far outstrip public opinion as
to excite stubborn prejudice."
A Stronjr CInb State.
An Eastern club writer says Mrs.
Lowe's interest in the coming biennial is
very keen, "as Cillfornla was the first
! state federation formed after her acces-
slon to 0,ce now nearly four years ago;
2.iiu ii ia uiuj jusi iu uuu uiui. iu Jit:
personal sympathetic effort the result Js
largely due." In regard to the first part
of the statement the writer la In error.
The Oregon federation wa3 formed near
ly four months before the Cillfornla fed
eration, and about a year and a half af
ter Mrs. Lowe became president of the
General Federation. This does not prove,
however, that California was not a
strong club state long before they fed
erated. At the Milwaukee biennial the
report showed that out of the 33 federated
states at that time, but 16 had a larger
membership than California, which en
rolled 61 clubs, with an Individual mem
berships of 5300. Mmy new clubs and a
much larger membership now exist and
there seems no fitter pacc to hold one of
these great conclaves of women than In
a state that has responded so grandly
to the development and advancement of
women, and has done It so quickly; for
as Mrs. Burdettc said In her biennial re
port: "The state, settled as It was by
seekers of wealth, wealth of gold and
wealth of soul by miners and padres
was at first a womanlcss coast and much
longer a homeless coast. Less than EO
years has there been In construction the
foundation for woman's work of today:
but with the hospitality born of outdoor
life It welcomes every new movement
tnat means development."
Mm. Wade' Visit.
The state president. Mrs. C. B. Wade,
, during her visit last week, put In a busy
i time, but considered herself fortunate in
finding so many of the clubs in session.
j While here she met with the Teachers'
I Association, visited the cooking-school
, several times, talked to the Oswego Guild;
attended the Ivey lecture; spent a day
' with the club women of Troutdale; was
delightfully entertained by the Council
of Jewish Women; held a board and sev
eral committee meetings: accepted a num
ber of social attentions, and kept herself
almost constantly "at home" to her many
friends, at the Imperial a record which
only an "all around" clubwoman could
perform In one week. Mrs. Wade left
for her home In Pendleton Tuesday, but
expected to stop off a day at The Dalles
to assist In organizing a club at that

Is an outgrowth of the library movement
tliat started there last Summer, and
might be said to be an auxiliary of the
library and free reading room, which,
through their business ability and energy
Is rapidly growing In size and Interest.
The reading-room Js a cozy, homeUke
little place, comfortably furnished and
made attractive by a number of good pic
tures. It is on the main street and kept
open all day and evening. A capable
librarian not only keeps it neat and
warm, but assists the younger patrons In

25 cents per month, which entitles them
to take books home, but all may have the
use of the reading-room free. The
Woman's Club, which has a membership
of 34. meets in this VoOm twice a month.
On the first Tuesday of each month the
club gives a public entertainment to raise
funds for the library. As for study, they
will read Shakespeare during the Win
ter. The library committee of the State
Federation has been able to loan them
(not give them, as erroneously asserted),
several cases of the traveling library,
which will be passed on from there to
Several of the state officers were de
lightfully entertained by the club on the
9th. Mrs. Wade gave a forcible talk on
"Organization," and complimented highly
the systematic work of this club. De
licious refreshments and a pleasant so
cial hour closed the afternoon.

Impetus to civic Improvement Is the Na

other societies; it has no Jurisdiction,
and lays down no rules for Its members
to follow. Its object Is only "to bring

The Irish Board of Agriculture has
sent Miss Charlotte O'Connor Eccles, a
woman of marked literary ability, and
a Journalist of note. Into the country dis
tricts to persuade women to seek train
ing In domestic science. She will also
lecture on hygiene, food, and clothing,
and show how home may be made more
comfortable and happy, and the labor
lightened by conforming to better sanitary
and hygienic conditions. Could the sons
of Erin receive some of this Instruction
it might help enforce many an obsolete
ordinance In our own American cities.
The Guild, of Oswego, which is doing
church and Sunday school work for the
Congregational mission at that place, has
found it quite necessary to Its work to be
versed In parliamentary law, and has
taken up the study with much Interest,
using Shattuck's manual as a text-book.

The Home Department.
The home department of the Women's
Club has taken up civic improvement In
earnest. At a meeting Tuesday a large,
number being present, the subject was
thoroughly discussed and various com
mittees appointed. It Is the Intention to
make It a campaign of preventive work
to begin with, fully believing the first
step toward reform will be In trying to
prevent the breaking of ordinances, rather
than In creating new ones. Another ear
nest plea will be made to spare the shade
trees. It was hoped the many protests
would have been heeded, but the ruthless
destruction still goes on, and probably
will until the "fanatic" arises in her
might and the public Is convinced of the
vandalism of the act.
The home department will not meet
again till after the holidays.
NEW ERA WILL DAWN.
When Portland Get AH It Elec
trical Plant Going:.
The prospect3 appear promising for
Portland being well supplied with elec
tricity In the not so very distant future.
The Portland General Electric Company,
which has heretofore supplied from their
power station at the falls of the WIUam
ette electricity for lighting the streets of
the city, as well as a large proportion of
the buildings, public and private, as well
as for operating o. large number of the
electric cars and for furnishing power for
many factories, has just completed an
auxiliary steam plant. This Includes en
gines of 3000-horsepower, with generators
capable of supplying an electric current
equal to some 1200 or 1500-horsepower.
The Council Is asked to grant R. Green
a franchise for an electric company, which
has In view an investment of $2,000,000 In
an electric plant, to furnish this city with
J electricity for all purposes, and the own
ers of the Portland City & Oregon Rail
way will probably ask for a somewhat
similar franchise at the next meeting of
the Council. The City & Suburban Rail
way Company, which has heretofore man
ufactured only enough electricity to oper
ate a part of their system, has Just com
pleted an addition to Its electric plant,
which enables it to furnish electricity
enough to operate the entire system.
When all who desire franchises for elec
tric plants and the erection of the neces
sary poles and wire to operate
them have obtained the same, tho
air In this city will be so highly electri
fied that citizens' hair will stand erect
like quills upon the fretful porcupine, and
the town clocks and everybody's watch
will have to be reconstructed so that they
cannot be magnetized; the nights will be
lighter than the day, the leaves will re
main green on all trees, and flowers will
bloom all through the Winter, as well as
the Spring, tra-la.

Injured In a frightful runaway accident
last evening at 5 o'clock, on Grand ave
nue. East Side.
Mr. and Mrs. Ingram drove in from
their home in their light two-horse milk
wagon. Mr. Ingram left the wagon for
a few moment8near East Morrison street,
and In some way the horses took fright
and started to run northward, with Mrs.
Ingram alone In the wagon. She was
unable to cr-eck them In the least, and
by the time they had reached East Wash
ington street they were running at a
terrific speed. Boon after they dashed up
East Washington street, on the west side
of Grand avenue, she seemed to raise up
to get a better hold of the lines, or to
Jump, it could not be told which, when
she was thrown out. As she plunged
from the wagon the brake handle caught
her In such a way that she was thrown
headlong on the plank roadway. The
horses continued their flight and had Just
passed East Stark street when they mot
an electric car, tho front of which they
struck with fearful force. The outride
horse was almost Instantly killed and
the vehicle badly wrecked.
Some young men' saw the accident and
they quickly picked up the prostrate wo
man and carried her Into the drug store
on Grand avenue and East Washington
street. Blood was flowing from her nos
'trlls. She was unconscious, and seemed
almost In a state of collapse. Some
ladles from the Logus building made her
comfortable as possible until physicians
could be called. There was some delay

greatly shocked to find his wife in such
a serious condition.
Tho physicians made an examination,
and found no bones broken, but concluded
that she had sustained a very serious
concussion of the brain. It could be

wagon she struck on the side of her head
with very great force. She was still
unconscious, but moaned occasionally.
Stimulants were admlnls ered. After
some delay, Mr. Ingram consented
that his wife should be taken to Good
Samaritan Hospital. Both physicians ac
companied the ambulance. Dr. Raffety
said that he considered Mrs. Ingram in
a very critical condition, but that it might
be 12 hours, or even a longer time, before
the result could be known.
Mr. Ingram said that he had driven the
horses before and had never had any
trouble. He could not account for their
taking fright last evening.
The horses struck the" street-car with
such force that the Impact sounded like
the report of a gun. The horses were run
ning with such speed that the wreckage
was carried forward nearly 40 feet after
the collision, while the front end of the
car was smashed For some time traffic
on the line was Interrupted by the .acci
dent. Mrs. Ingram was brought to the hos
pital safely, but on examination it was
considered that her skull had been frac
tured and that her chances for recovery

The desperate attempts made by little,
tacky dealers, who, through lack of fa
cilities, enterprise, brains and capital,
find It utterly Impossible to falr'.y and
openly compete with EUers Piano House,
One dealer here In the city Is said to
have In his possession a Cnickering piano,
and also another well-known make, which
he will not sell, but which he uses for
the purpose of demonstrating to an un
suspecting caller the alleged "superiority"
of the particular make he wishes to sell
over the above-named renowned makes.
Another firm has gotten po?scs3ion of
one of the famous "Kimballs, and also
one of the Justly popular 'Hlnze" pianos,
which have evidently been used for the
same purpose by them, and to every
caller are evidently being represented as
"nearly new," and fair samples of the
wearing qua'Ity of these particular makes.
Every piano that Is branded "Kimball"
is not. however, a genuine "new-scale
Kimball" piano. We have now for sale
here a Kimball piano made about thirteen
years ago by J. P. Hale, which so-called
"Kimball" can be obtained from us for
$145. It Is In remarkably good shape, and
well worth this price.
The value of a new-scale Kimball piano
will be shown In the following letter:
"Gentlemen: Although we were not al
lowed to see the Interior of the two second-hand
pianos so as to ascertain their
condition, and you have tho factory num
bers concealed, so we cannot even tll how
old they are. we will gie you $200 cash
for the second-hand HInze If It has not
been unduly or improperly used or ex
posed: and $300 cash fo the second-lnnd
'Kimball' If it Is a genuine New Scale
Kimball. If an old scale Kimball, we will
give you $250 for It. provided It Is not fo
exceed seven or eight years old.
"If these pianos come within the require
ments, picase ueuver same at cir storf:
otherwise please advise us further and
oblige. Very respectfully.
"EILERS PIANO HOUSE."
It Is hardlv necessary to state that
neither one of these pianos was delivered
at our store, and the matter requires no

We have also left on hand a number of
Richmond. Gramcr and Stelnway (grand
and upright) pianos of the which we re

I went Into liquidation. They are new in

prices ranging from $176 and $1C for the

to something like $400 for new Stelnwav

VASELINE NO GOOD FOR HAIR.
Dandruff Germ Thrives In It, aa "Well
an In All Grease.
A well-knjwn Chicago hair specialist In
vited the Inter Ocean reporter to come to !
his office and see, under a microscope.
how the germ that causes dandruff
thrives in vaseline. The specialist salcT
that all hair preparations containing
greass, simply furnish food for the germs
and help to propagate them. The only
way to cure dandruff Is to destroy tho
germs, and the only hair preparation that
will do that Is Newbro's Herplcide. "De
stroy the cause, you remove the effect."
Without dandruff no falling hair, no bald
ness. Ask for Herplcide. It Is the only
destroyer or tne dandruff germ.
