Doctor or law Settles Disputes.
The other members o the law firm of
Dolph, Mallory. Simon & Gearln, were
much pleased and gratified, when a short
time ago John 5L Gearlijte alma mater
bestowed upon him the degree of "IAj.
D." doctor of laws In recognition of
their appreciation of the very excellent
address he delivered at the graduating
exercises there Messrs. Dolph, Mallory
and Simon are not now so pleased with
the degree as they used to be for they
are too often made to feel the weight of
it. In a law office where all kinds of
Important documents are drawn up,
there often arise discussions as to the
proper or best way of wording a phrase
or sentence, or the selection of a word
to be used to convey a certain idea or
meaning and all the members of the firm
become Involved in such discussions
which sometimes arise over small points
like the proper spelling of a word. Here
tofore all the members of this firm stood
on an even footing in such discussions,
but now when there appears to be dan
ger of their being drawn out to any
length, Mr. Gearin gives his opinion in,
set phrase and by pointing to his III. D.
degree hanging on the wall puts an end
to the discussion, for, of course, there
is nothing more to be said, as none of
the other members of the firm have any
claim to a double L at the end of their
Trees Fali, in March op Improvement.
The destruction of a large and hand
some elm shade tree in front of the
Groomes' property on Salmon street be?
tween Fifth and Sixth because the ten
ants complained that the shade made the
house dark and gloomy, marks a new era
in the destruction of shade trees. There
fire mapy large shade trees on the block
of street mentioned, more than are need
ed for ornament, and more than are good
lor the comfort or health of residents
on the south side of the street. It. is
safe to say that more of them will dis
appear before long. The street and
any space between houses and the side
walk is completely embowered, and ex
cept on very bright sunshiny days the
shade Is gloomy and depressing. At
the season of the fall of the leaf, the
condition of the sidewalks is shocking,
and If an attempt is made to keep them
in decent order a great amount of labor
must, be expended continuously for a
long "ttaie. The march of improvement
will probably soon cause the removal of
the huge locusts which stand Inside the
Una of the old Estes property at the
southwest corner of Salmon and Fifth,
and other trees on the block which are
too large for shade trees on 'a narrow
street There are many such trees in
that neighborhood, but the elm just cut
was the handsomest of them all.
Fashions in Flour Sacks. Shiploads
and shiploads of flour are shipped abroad
from this clty in ordinary cotton sacks.
Theseas discovered by a citizen travel
ing 'through England and Ireland on a
bicycle, go to make undergarments for
the women of the poorer classes as he
saw the manufactured articles still bearing
the legend of a Portland mill hanging
on the clothes lines. A stroll through a
sack factory will, however, show that
flour sacks are made of drill and duck,
as well as of muslin, and that cargoes
for some countries have to be enclosed in
twilled coffee gunnies or sacks of
Hessian twill, each containing two of tho
ordinary sacks. This all depends on the i
region to which the cargo Is going, and j
the time of y$ar It "Is to reach its des- i
tlnatlon, as the sacks must be suited for
ladles wear which Is In fashion at that
season. When duck suits are being worn
the sacks are of ducking. If the cargo Is
going to Patagonia the gunnies and Hes
sian twill Inside sacks are" put over the
cotton ones, for the climate in Patagonia
Is cool, and- the women wear heavy
clothes. It is a little trying on the
Hour manufacturers to have to look
through fashion magazines to see what
sort of sacks they shall pack their floor
in, but the managers take delight In do
ing this and hence they command the
market of the world.
Pedestrians Must Take to the
Street. The crowd of pedestrians
thronging the sidewalks In the commis
sion district on Front street Saturday was
so great and so continuous that the
porters of the commission men weie
sometimes hampered in pushing
trucks along the narrow passage
left between the barrels and boxes
lining both edges of tho walks. This
was looked upon by some of the com
mission men as Interfering with their
business, and thev are talkinc of ore
sentlng a petition to the council asking
mat pedestrians oe connned to the street
Prohably few will remonstrate against
such a scheme as usually It Is safer and
more pleasant to travel on the street
than the sidewalk in that section
The wilted, withered, indigestible and
unwholesome green cantaloupes from
Fresno which nobody will buy or can
eat which obstruct the sidewalks there
will soon have to go, to the crematory
probably, and as there are piles and
piles of this trash, their removal will
leave more room on the sidewalks.
Great Demand fob Blackberries.
"Wild Dlackberrles, the best of all berries,
were brought to market Saturday in con
siderable quantities In tin buckets. These
"berries are so juicy that they cannot
oe nanaiea in boxes like other berries.
They sold at 12 cents per pound and
went off like hot cakes, for there. nrA
many who can afford to pay that price
but more who cannot The only thing
in the berry line more exnenslv
in the market this year, were the earliest
strawberries and a small lot of genuine
old-fashioned Jow bush huckleberries
which were marked 15 cents per pound.
These and wild blackberries used to be
plentiful, but the improvement of farms
has made both scarce. It is strange that
some one does not try growing them in a
natural way on a large scale. They re
quire no cultivation, no pruning, and no
looking after, 'except to see that the
bushes are let alone and they yield well,
and the berries bring more than culti
vated ones. It would seem that a suc
cess might be made in growing them.
Reception to Dr. and Mrs. Black
burn. There will be a formal reception
given Dr; Alexander Blackburn and wife,
of the First Baptist Church, at S o'clock
this evening. Short addresses will be

W. G. MCPHERSON COMPANY.
Max Smith's Savoy Coffee House, 155
Fifth, is famous for its delicious coffee.
His Fad Is Gardening. Roses are com
ing into prominence again, the tea
roses taking the lead. William Barn
hart yesterday cut a large houquet of
the finest roses he has raised or ever
seen this year, and Dr. B. P. CardweU, to
whom he presented them, said they were
the finest lot of roses he had seen this
year. Mr. Barnhart has found that he
has more roses nd better ones by 'keep
ing them well cut away and so his friends
are in luck and his roses excel most In
a short time his hybrids will be bloom
ing and then he will have many magni
ficent ones. His style of gardening
shows what can, be done in a quarter
block, 100x100 feet in Portland, and
how easily this might be made a rose
city. Ha, has an eight-room house, a
little "back from the street and near the
south side of the tract He has two
large cherry trees, a plum tree and an
apple tree, which yield more fruit than
he can use. These were planted along
the west side of the tract by the orig
inal owner of the tract some 20 years
ago. In the narrow strip' on the south
side of the house he has a couple of peach
trees trained on the side of the house,
and a hedge of blackberry bushes along
the fence. There are some ripe peaches
on the trees now, and there were more
blackberries on' the bushes than he had
use for. At the. east end of the house
is a large hydrangea, a fig tree, proba
bly the largest In the city, and a large
snowball tree, and on the remainder of
the tract north of the house he has be
tween 500 and C00 rose bushes and climb
ers, forming probably the best collection
in the city and without doubt the most
productive. There are some other plants
on the ground, among them Is a vine of
jasmine, which loads the air with per
fume. He has two fine large yuccas, a
species of cactus sometimes called "Span
ish bayonet," which send up large flower
stalks bearing a great number of white
flowers rather striking In appearance,
but they never fully expand. As there
are no stems to them they cannot well be
used in making bouquets and so are not
in favor with florists. It Is doubtful
If so many trees, plants and flowers can
be found in any similar tract in the city.
His Sobriety Suspected. A resident
of South Second street whose character
for sobriety is one of his most conspicu
ous virtues Is troubled with a weakness
or fluttering of the heart occasionally
when he overexerts himself, which Is not
often. A day or so ago he was putter
ing about a rather dilapidated sidewalk
In front of. the quarter block on which
he resides, fixing It so as to avoid hav
ing to build a new one. The tempft-a-ture
being rather tropical, he soon began
to feel -a nervous twitching of his heart
strings, anr a feeling of general lassi
tude. He remembered that the doctor
had told him to resort to stimulants to
overcome such attacks, and that nothing
was so beneficial In cases of heart fail
ures as a glass of good whisky. There
being no saloon in that neighborhood,
that he knew of, he repaired to a drug
store nearby and stating his condition
asked for a glass of whisky. The drug
gist eyed him critically and said he could
not let him have "any whisky, as he ap
peared to be under tho Influence of
liquor. The sufferer was astonished and
disgusted and said he had not even seen
whisky for a month, and at once re
paired to another drug store, where he
was certain he could obtain relief. This
druggist wasted no words on him, but
said: "You cannot have any whisky here;
you are two-thirds full now." He says
he will have to fall back on his weak
lung, as he did when In a blockaded
train at the Cascades, and Ed Lyon
wanted him to get out and help plow a
track for the engine through several miles
of snow drifts, on account of which he
was christened "One-Lunged Stansberry."
He prefers this to being told he is two
thirds drunk, when he hasn't touched a
City to Have a Few Good Streets.
The condition of the streets inthe busi
ness and central districts of the city
will be in such good condition In two or
three weeks that old residents will not
known them. Washington street will be
in first class form clear out to- the en
trance of the City Park, and some paral
lel streets ought to be, and probably will
bo, Improved from Front to Twenty
third, so that the heavy travel to the
West side of town need not be confined
to a street -with car tracks on it Ford
street will be Improved from Washington
to Park avenue with bituminous maca
dam and tho Improvement will probably
De extended to the east entrance of the
City Park. This will give an oppor
tunity to test the qualities or bituminous
macadam which has not yet been tried
here but which is in favor In many East
ern cities. Tenth and Seventh street
are In good condition. Third and Fourth
and Morrison streets are now being made
as good as new. First street is to have
sound pavement of wood blocks, and
cords of treated wood blocks are now
stacked along Yamhill street from Fourth
to Second. The railway tracks there
are about put In good shape with heavy
raus, so in a very few days, that section
of Xamhill street will be In fine order
The fine appearance of the streets men-
tionea will induce property owners to
have others put in order, for as a city
omciai says, people accustomed to bad
streets do not realize what effect eood
streets in front of property have in in
creasing the value of it
Peacemaker Comes off Best. A
rather violent altercation going on- in a
cigar store, yesterday, in which the deal
er, a customer and several SDeatators
were Involved, attracted the attention of
a missionary-looking man passing. He
stepped Inside, hoping to be able to set-
tie tne dispute and pacify the dlsnutants.
He found that all the rag-chewing was
on account of the customer having won
two li-cent cigars piavlnrr a nickel
in-the-slot machine, and had received
only four 5-cent cigars In place of them
wnen he had asked to have them changed.
The dealer said they only gave four of
these cigars in a winning of two 12-cent
cigars ana otner dealers gave the same.
The customer, who is a machine fiend.
said he always got five all over town. So
there was a "misunderstanding" some
where, and a row was on which the mis
sionary man could not stop, and about
everyone wno came along was Interested.
and took a hand in the wordy fray. The
would-be peacemaker gave the customer
a rough deal, for not having more hon
esty and more sense than to play at the
machine which was ruining the youth of
the land by cultivating In him a taste
for gambling, a wicked hankering to get
sometning ror notning, etc Neither the
dealer nor the customer was pleased with
this sort of talk and the row went on.
Finally the missionary got hold of one of
the four cigars given In place of 5 cents.

given for them, and went to smoking it.

No Hurst About Moving. The Port
land Cracker Company has been making
plans for Treating the Snell Heltschu
building, about September 1. to allow the
Postoftlce to be moved in there while the
addition to the Postoftlce building Is toe
ing built The fact that no one appears
to be In any hurry about securing the
contract for this extension makes It ap
pear provable to the Cracker Company
that It is not likely to be required to move
out so soon. Delays are dangerous and
there has been delay enough In connec
tion with the proposed extension to the
Postoftlce, causing some to think it will
never be completed. Once the Postoftlce Is
moved into tho Snell Heltschu building
it will be likely to remain there a long

Mlnthorn Water for Milvrankle.
At the next meeting of the Mllwaukie
Council, J. L. Johnson will submit a writ
ten proposition to erect water works and
supply the people of Mllwaukie with water
from Mlnthorn Springs. It will be a grav
ity system, and the purity of the supply
is not questioned. There has been agita
tion of tho water question at Mllwaukie
for sume time. It commenced when It
was discovered that the well from which
the large public school Is supplied is im
pure. This was ascertained by J. W
Graslce, who had an analysis of the water
made, when It was found beyond all ques
tion that tho water was a menace to tho
health of the pupils. The cost of an ample
water supply would be small.

Ncvr Bill at Empire Tonight.
Tonight for' an opening bill for this
week, the Empire Theater presents,
among Its varied features, the highest
salaried singing act on tho vaudeville
stage. Lillian Leslie Is the cantatrlce
whose voice Is her fortune. Music-lovers
will go to the Empire to hear Miss Leslie
sing; pursuers of the artistic will go to
see her face, while tho whole feminine
world, musical, artistic and otherwise,
will be at the theater to study her gowns.
Miss Leslie has played all the big houses
of the East, and Is direct from the Or
pheum Circuit .
Next to this great singer on the posters
Is Allen J. Shaw, the Australian king of
coins. Mr. Shaw is -a magician at manip
ulating money, who can make a sliver
dollar do anything.
Marsh Craig, tho clever, convolutlng
contortionist, will mako tho Empire audi
ences believe that h,e is truly a human
lizard. This act unlike many acrobatic
turns, is most attractive and entertaining.
The Juggling of Christy and Willis can
not be too highly commended. Christy Is
a Joking, jesting, Jovial juggler, who can
mako a cannon ball, two umbrellas and
one soubrette perform such antics that
the audience roars with laughter until he
leaves the stage. And Miss Willis, the
other partner in the sketch, can really
dance. She has not picked up a few steps
by watching good performers, but Is a
carefully trained dancer.

The Tyfold Collar
The picture shows how the
collar is cut out on each side
to allow for adjusting a neck
tie without springing the col
lar open. The collar comes
close together in front, it keeps
the tie in place and you don't
see the cut-out part. Besides
the 'tie is retained just over the
button, which is also kept out of sight.
Your summer comfort will be increased
if you wear one, and you'll thank us

matter where you want to
use it, whether in kitchen,
sewing room or laundry, it
is hut a small matter to con
nect it to the electric light

cially in the sewing room,
where a hot iron is often
needed, will this be appre
ciated from the fact that it
requires no fire and no run

COLD KILLS THE GERM.
Llcnt. Perry Sam There Are Xo Bald
Hend.s in the Arctic Region.
The people who come back from Klon
dike testify to the fact that no nattvo
bald heads are there. The evidence la
that the cold climate kills the germs
that eat the hair off at the root. Lieu
tenant Perry, who went to the Arctic re
gions, gives the same evidence. New
bro's Jlerpicide has the same effect aa tho
cold climate. It kills the germ that eats
the hair off at the roots, and the hair
grows again. Herplcide is the first hair
remedy built upon the principle of de
stroying the germ that eats the hair onT.
Its phenomenal sale demonstrates the
correctness of the scalp germ theory. Sold,
