QUEER LETTERS RECEIVED
One Man, In St. Louis States That His
Father Knew President Goode
When He Started West With
Lewis and Clark.
Some strange notions exist, of the
Lewis and Clark Exposition In differ
ent sections of the country, as the cor
respondence received at headquarters
frequently shows. Of course, the aver
age correspondent knows whereof he
Is writing, but not a few Instances of
laughable ignorance on the subject are
displayed. In fact, extracts m from the
correspondence that is received for a
World's Fair would make a very cred
itable display in itself If there were a
There are letters from every con
ceivable portion of the United States,
most of them, to be sure, intelligent
and business-like, but many of them
the Idiosyncracles of people who have
formed their own ideas of the Ex
position. One notion that has seized many corre
spondents is that the Exposition is being
built and promoted by two gentlemen
named respectively Lewis and Clark. For
instance, a letter was received during the
past week addressed to "Messrs. Lewis
and Clark, Gentlemen." It went on to
state that the writer had "heard of tho
Fair which "you two gentlemen" are get
ting up, and asked for the name of tho
leading Portland newspaper.
He Knew President Goode.
In the same connection a laughable in
stance occurred a short time ago at St.
Louis during the visit of President Jeffer
son Myers, of the Lewis and Clark'State
"While Mr. Myers was sitting In the Ore
gon State building, a darkey from Ken
tucky called on him and asked for the
address of President Goode. It will be re
called that a majority of the Lewis and
Clark party were Kentucklans, and, there
fore, the Blue Grass State has heard much
about the Lewis and Clark Fair, which
had come to the ears of the negro in ques
tion. The ebony-hued visitor at once
asked for the address of President Goode.
"Mah ole dad he done know this yah
.Mistah Pres'dent Goode when he leave
Kalntuck with Mistah Lewis an Clark,"
said the negro. "I done wants foh to
write to him ah' get a job."
"Your father knew President Goode
when he left with Lewis and Clark for
the "West!" exclaimed the startled Mr.
"Yais, sah! He done knowed him fo a
fact," responded the darkey. "He tol' mo
about it mo times 'an once, and we's all
glad to know Mistah Goode Is gittin along
"Don't you think President Goode must
be getting pretty old by this time," asked
the Commission President.
"Ah, they don't nevah die, sah, aout
thah in that country, do they?" asked the
darkey In a tone that implied he believed
the West to he a place of eternal life.
Concerning Huge Logs.
facts concerning the magnificent For
restry building have caused much atten
tion throughout the country. Several let
ters have been received asking as to the
real dimensions of the logs of which the
great log cabin is to be built. One corre
spondent wished to know if the logs really
are 20 feet thick, as he had heard.
C. A. Matthews, general agent of the
Northern" Pacific passenger department,
was marvelling at the monster logs during
the visit of the official Northern Pacific
party at the grounds Friday.
"I don't believe they are ten feet thick,
though," remarked Mr. Matthews. "1
was talking to some tourists in Chicago,
who had seen the building," said Mr. Mat
thews, "and they told me it was the most
wonderful thing they had ever seen in
tnelr lives. They said the logs of which
it was made were ten feet thick, and that
there was but six logs to a side, the
building being CO feet high."
A letter received during the week throws
some better light on the ravages of her
edity as a leveler of family honors. A
man who is a janitor in a St. Louis building-
asked that a day be set apart at the
Lewis and Clark Exposition for the people
of all branches of the family bearing his
" name. He said they are descended from
powerful Norman Barons, and that his
forebears had done much toward the mak
ing of early English history. The name
is an obscure one, and perhaps there are
not 60 people of the name in America.
Family reunions, however, are being en
couraged by the Exposition management.
There will be reunion for the descendants
of Captain Lewis, and some dozens of the
Lewis family have already announced
their intention of coming here. It would
be particularly pleasing to the Exposition
to have full and complete reunions of the
entire Smith and Jones families.
AGAINST THE CIGARETTE.
Five Hundred Boys and Girls Attend
Mass Meeting at Centenary.
"The American boy makes a noise. He
makes things move, and so in this cigar
ette movement he has caused a great
noise In this city that will make for good."
Rev. William Hoppe, D. I., of Centen
ary Methodist Episcopal Church.
"I am most heartily in sympathy with
this anti-cigarette movement. You can't
do much for the cbnflrmed cigarette
smoker, but we can save the boy from
acquiring the habit, and thus preserve
him for a useful and honorable life."
Rev. Andrew Montgomery, of Third
"I do not know which is the worst, the
cigarette or the drink habit, and I am
heartily glad this antl-clgarette movement
has been started here in Portland. It is
backed not only by the church, the school
teacher and the home, but by the business
men of the Nation." Rev. E. Nelson Al
len, of the First Cumberland Presbyte
The above Is the gist of the remarks
made at the mass meeting held yesterday
afternoon in Centenary M. E. Church, in
the line of the cigarette crusade now be
ing carried on by Rev. W. R. Struble in
Portland. Over 500 boys and girls were
present and applauded the speakers heart
ily. Dr. Struble closed the meeting with
an earnest talk, and announced that he
estimated that about 4000 pupils of the
Portland schools had become members of
the Anti-Cigarette League. He read re
ports from the Stephens School, showing
300 members, and from the North Central
and Central, with ECO more. He an
nounced that the campaign would go on.
and that some monster mass meetings
were being arranged for in the Armory
Old People Have Their Troubles.
The most common ailments to which
people past middle age are subject are
indigestion and constipation. Fortunately
there is a remedy especially suited to
these disorders and that affords prompt
relief. It is called Chamberlain's Stom

so natural that you do not realize that
it has been produced by a medicine. They
