Catdses as Poco Posies.-There Is no
polo club on this Coast as yet, except one
at the garrison In Walla Walla, but there
may be one before lone, as a sporting
man o this city, -who recently visited
South Carolina, and saw the game played
! there, became Infatuated with It, and Is
thinking of getting up a polo club here.
Of course, every one knows what polo is.
I A game in which a ball Is knocked about
I the ground by men on horseback, with a
sort of long-handled mallet, one ODjec
tlon to the game Is that It Is expensive.
I as each player ought to have two or three
lightweight, wlrj'i active horses, and an
other is that ladles do not play It that is
not so serious. The ball used Is made of
wood. The one the young man, brought
home from South Carolina is made of
rycamore wood, light and tougn. it is
the idea of this young man that cayuse
horses and half-breed cayuses would
make first-class polo ponies, as for tough
ness, speed and activity they are hard to
beat. This idea is. sustained by the fact
that a horse dealer here has shipped a
number of horses of medium size, say
about 14 hands 2 Inches in height, to
Hong Kong to be used as polo ponies.
I One man named Rennle, who Is In the
employ of the Portland Flouring Mills
Company, ordered four, and If nothing
jhas happened to him, will want more.
Rbscme "WonK on Street. The Trlnl-
idad Asphalt Company resumed .work on
the Improvement of Seventh street satur-
Iday by commencing grading for the con-
I crete foundation. There has been, some
fault found about delay in, the improve
ment of this street, but work was only
stopped about the middle of February, and
laying asphalt pavement cannot go on In
rainy weather. Work would have been
resumed before had It been known that
there was to be so much continuous fine
weather in March. But, as the manager
of the asphalt company says,, who could
have expected It? A strong force will be
put on and the paving of the street, from
Alder to Burnslde streets, completed as
soon as possible. The Job will be brought
to a finish some day, for the Spring rains
Icannot last forever, and rain is really
Ineeded now, as farmers have been plow
ing and seeding for the past month, and
rain is needed to make the seed grow.
Hose Bcshes in the Streets. The
planting of thousands of rose bushes
llong the curbs, so that visitors to the
:lty in 1905 may walk through avenues of
roses, Is being advocated. There are.
lowever, many who oppose this Idea, and
suggest that the roses be planted inside
the property lines. Nothing has ever been
proposed which met the approval of
everybody, and some say the streets are
lot for rose gardens, and the sidewalks
should not be obstructed by rose bushes,
it any other bushes. It will probably be
jest to let property-owners do as they
please on this point. Some experiments
if this kind have been made, but the
fecheme is not likely to ever be extensively
taken up, nor to become permanent. In
this connection it may be stated that the
terminal Company will be requested to
hlant rose bushes all over the grass plot
lorth of the Grand Central Station.
Another Complaint About Sidewaijcs.
-A woman, who is loud in her praise of
he Civic Improvement Association for
he good work it has done, the effects of
Ivhlch are visible in many places, asks to
lave the attention of the association
balled to a habit some storekeepers have
bf washing out their shops onto the side-
gvulks in front, leaving the filthy water
Jo form a sloppy place for pedestrians to
pet through or by as best they can. In
lunshiny days it Is soon dried up. leaving
mass of dust and microbes to be blown
ibout by the wind. Such shopkeepers
Ihould be required to wash off the side
walk also. The association will doubtless
ict around to this matter before the rainy
leason is over. There are" so many things
lo look after that It cannot all be attend
ed to at once.

Additions to Citt Museum. The free
City Museum is increasing- In magnitude j
and Interest very fast of late, and Colonel ;
Hawkins finds room for new additions be
coming scarce. Donations of late are run
ning very largely to birds, wlhch come in
by cases and groups. "I have always
considered the exhibit of shells the most
beautiful and attractive part of the mu
seum," said Colonel Hawkins yesterday,
"but now the collection of birds is begin
ning to get ahead of that Two cases
lately presented by the John Burroughs
Society are filled with birds. One case
contains 23 game birds of various kinds.
Among them are the ruffed grouse, smoky
grouse, buffet-headed butter-ball and
California gull. The second case contains
15 small song birds and other birds of this
locality, unmounted, prepared by H. T.
Bohlman. Among them are the sand
piper, plover, grossbeak, red-shafted
flicker, Oregon Jay, Stella Jay, cedar
waxwlng, forked tailed patrol, great
northern shrike. Savannah Bparrow and
140 others. Among the late additions are
a large and small bittern, Bob White,
grayback duck and the parrot which
edified visitors to the City Park for many
years, till finally a middle-aged woman
talked It to death. There are also a lam?
ily of wood, or Summer, ducks; a family
of ruffed grouse, some white egrets and
two hawks. Some of these specimens
came from H. T. Bohlman. the Romp col
lection. Taxidermist Brazee and others.
A beautifully mounted otter, with a ring
neck in its teeth, is very attractive. Mr.
Hawkins is especially proud of a beauti
fully mounted deer. Arrangements have
been mnde to increase the number of
Golden Pheasants in the City Park, which
are such an attraction to visitors.
Want Water Drained Awat. There Is
a stagnant pool of water, or small lake,
running parallel with East Taylor street,
between East Sixteenth and East Eigh
teenth streets, which becomes a nuisance
In the Summer. It Is a mosquito hatch
ery, emits foul odors, and residents near
it are very anxious to have it drained. A
fill on East Taylor street, across a ra
vine, caused the water to collect on both
sides of it, and, as the water is lower
than the sewer on East Salmon street, it
cannot be drained into that outlet. Property-owners
interested have consulted
with City Engineer Elliott In regard to
the matter. Mr. Elliott tells the property
owners that If they will secure tho earth
being hauled from Salmon street and
dump It into the pool till the bottom Is
raised enough, he will have the sewer on
Taylor street opened and let the water In
the lake run away through it. The nar
row end of the lake south of East Taylor
street coma be drained in the same way.
une water, which Is six feet deeD In
places, does not disappear in the Summer
time, but becomes more foul In the ho
weather. The suggestion of Engineer
Elliott win doubtless be acted on.
FUMIGATING PUBLIC CONVEYANCES. The
City Physician a short time ago arranged
with the managers of the different street
railway companies for the periodical fumi
gation of street cars, a very proper sanl
tary measure. It is now suggested that
he take steps to see that hacks and omni
buses be fumigated at intervals. There
are some hackmen who have no scruples
In regard to violating the law by carry
ing persons afflicted with a contagious
disease to hospitals. The hospitals have
ambulances for carrying sick people, but
some do not like to use them, and fre
quently persons suffering from scarlet
fever and other contagious diseases are
taken to hospitals by hackmen. Of
course, no hack company would permit
this, "but some hackmen do. for one was
caught in the act a few days ago.

Spring Makes a Start. The beautiful
weather yesterday induced many to start
out for long walks In the country. The
birds were singing their sweetest notes
at 5 o'clock in the morning, and seemed
to say, "Spring is here." Robins are
building nests on the same old grounds.

Rubber Sponge Fooled Him. a young
roan irom tne rural districts, who visited
a drug store in this city yesterday, noticed
a show case full of what he took to be
loaves of old-fashioned molasses irincer.

sionally. He had concluded to buy one,
but thought the price high. The clerk
saw mat ne was not aware that th ar.
tide he was trying to buy was a rubber
sponge, and asked him: "What are you
going to do with this?" "Eat It. of
course," was the reply. "I am afraid you
would find It rather Indigestible." said the
clerk. "Rubber Is pretty' tough, and this
Is a rubber sponge." The young man
took it In his hand, gave It a squeeze, put
it aown ana waiKea away.
Mushrooms Arrive. A pioneer citizen,
who is a bit of an epicure, expressed him
self ay astonished when he saw some
boxes of mushrooms, the regular old
fashioned, meadow mushrooms. In the
market Saturday. "I have never seen
these mushrooms early In the Spring be
fore." said he. "They come with the first
cool rains In the Fall." He was told that
the mushrooms came from California, and
had perhaps been grown under glass.
The "Morel," a conical-shaped funmis.
with a honeycombed surface, comes to
the market in the Spring, and will soon be
on sale. It Is not so well flavored as the
meadow mushroom, but Is liked by many.

"The Tivo Orphans" IMay at the
Tonight at the Marquam Grand Theater
Portland theater-goers will have an op
portunity ot witnessing one of the most
celebrated actresses the American stage
has ever produced; Kate Claxton. in her
wonderfully successful play, "The Two
Orphans." it is not difficult to under
stand why "The Two Orphans" has held
the stage all these years, and so unin
terruptedly too. It Is a play compre
hensive to all. Its characters are In the
main true to life, and its passions but the
reflection of varied humanity. Much of
its enduring popularity is past question
due largely to Miss Claxton's superb im
personation of "Ix)uise," the blind girl,
which originally made the play famous.
Her performance ls stir! strong and virile,
and Improves rather than deteriorates
with age. The supporting company Is
said to -be one of the "best that Miss
Claxtori has yet had. For this season's
revival, which Is probably a final one
In this play by Miss Claxton. a new and
complete scenic production has been pre
pared to give the play every possible
help. "The Two Orphans" will be the at
traction Tuesday and Wednesday nights.
"The Wizard of the Slle."
Tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock the
Marrquim Grand Theater box office will
be thrown open for the redemption of the
coupons which have been sold for "The
Wizard." Popular Interest has been wide
ly aroused by the reports of the satisfac
tory progress of the rehearsals, and by
the display of photographs and posters In
the windows, and the tickets have been In
greit demand. Tomorrow only coupons
will bo accepted In exchange for tickets;
hence, all who hold coupons may present
them at tho box office and secure the
seats desired. These coupons entitle tha
holder to seats on the lower floor or In
the first six rows of the balcony. On
Wednesday the box office will be opened
to those who have been unable to secure
coupons, and as the number of coupons
is less than the number of seats in thesa
sections of the house, every one will have
a chance to get good seats, provided he
goes early. But to be certain, the best
way is to get these coupons, which are on
sale at many of the stores, and redeem
them Tuesday at the Marquam box office.
No more than ten tickets will be sold to
one person for one performance.
Benefit at the Baker.
The sale of seats for the coming benefit
of the Council of Jewish Women., to be
held at the Baker Theater, will be open
at the Aldrlch Pharmacy on Wednesday,
Thursday and Friday of this week from
1 to 6 P. M. The number of seats sold to
any one person will be limited to ten.

Mrs. Millie R." Trumbull.' for the philan

The speaker first epoke of the prosper
ous condition oi me Young Men's Chls
tlan Association throughout the United
States, stating that each Sunday witness- j
ed an average attendance at their gospel
meetings of over 7S.O0Q men.
The text chosen was taken from St.

"The question of a standard of moral
ity Is not equal to God's precepta to man.
Ha is not nailing a code of bylaws on the
wall of your room by which you are to
live. More men in the United States are
lost as moral men than as drunkards."
He emphasized the quotation, '.'One
thing thou lackest" illustrating "how the
greater number of souls are lost through
a lack of love for God.
"Go get gold," said the speaker, "and
pile it mountain high; acquire wisdom un
til you can "vie with Solomon; get every
thing that you imagine you would like
to have; realize your air castles, and If
you leave God out of your Uvea, some
day. If you have the chance, you will
gasp, 'It was all In vain.' The man who
lives for God will go out of this world
shouting victory as he goes. Though every
mile-stone In your life should mark a
defeat, if you live for God your death
will be a victory. There is not a man in
Portland but what would be down on his
knees If he knew he was going to die.
I warn you, men; be men and live as you
want to die."
The address was followed by a prayer
offered by Reno Hutchinson, religious di
rector of the Y. M. C. A. The audience
then sang the hymn. "Just as I Am.1'

pastor of the First Christian Church, pro

Scales, bat It Won't Care Dandruff.
If your hair Is brittle and thinning, you

scalp of the loose scales won't cure dan
druff; because dandruff 13 nothing but
scales of scalp being thrown up by a pes
tiferous little germ in burrowing Its way
to the root of the hair where It saps the
vitality, causing falling hair and, in time,
baldness. Now you can't stop dandruff,
nor falling hair, nor prevent baldness un
less you destroy that germ; and the only
preparation that can do It ls the new sci
entific discovery. Newbro's Herplclde. In
fact, no other hair preparation claims to
kill the dandruff germ all of them will
clean the scalp; soap and water will do
that, but only Newbro's Herplclde gets
at the root of the trouble and kills the
dandruff germ. For sale by all druggists.
