EXPOSITION'S MOST ATTRACTIVE STRUCTURE
Forestry Building, With Natural Grove Beyond, Forms One of
the Most Striking Pictures Imaginable.
NEW VIEW OF THE FORESTRY BUILDING. ONE OF THE MOST INTERESTING STRUCTURES AT THE LEWIS AND CLARK EXPOSITION.
THAT the Forestry building at the
Lewis and Clark Exposition is to at
tract more attention than any other of
tho structures at the Fair there can be
little doubt. Since its completion it has
constantly been the -center of an admiring
crowd. Thorc are few visitors that do not
Immediately inquire of the whereabouts
of the building. The immense logs of
which It is constructed arouse the wonder
ment of Easterners and the admiration of
A force of men has been at work for
some time on the grounds immediately
surrounding the building. The Idea has
been to make the surroundings harmonize
with the building, and In this work great
success has been met with. The accom
panying photograph shows the palace
from one of the ballasted boulevards in
Natural Park to the west of the building.
The huge stumps In the foreground are
the remnants of giants of the 'forest whtch
were taken away by loggers long before
the Exposition was thought of.
The interior view, which -will be with
held from the public until the opening of
the Exposition, is picturesque In the ex
treme. There are 92 supporting pillars,
not one of which Is less than six" feet in
diameter, and a number bclns much larg
er than that. The rustle effect Is pre
served on the Interior, the logs retaining
the natural bark. The windows are air
cut in the logs -without superfluous casing3
or other of the stampmarks of the metro
politan, which would spoil the general, ef
fect which has tcen aimed at.
In the forestry palace will be stored the
different forestry exhibits, together with
fish and game and part of the horticul
tural display. In addition there will be X
carload of giant pine cones, which will ba
given away as souvenirs to all visitors.
These cones are now being gathered bjj
Indians for storage.
SURPRISED BY RAIN
Visitors at Fair Grounds Struck
FORCED TO WADE IN MUD
Sudden Storm Catches Hundreds
Without Umbrellas, but Does Not
Put a Stop to the Sight
seeing Crowd Is Large.
Umbrellas were at a premium at the
liewis and Clark Exposition grounds yes
terday. Numbers of people ventured out
to the grounds early in the day when the
eun was shining, and were caught by the
rain. But they wore not discouraged.
The men rolled up the bottoms of their
trousers and the women picked up their
eklrts and saw the sights, in spite of the
rather unfavorable weather. There was
not a steady downpour, the rain coming
Thore -would sometimes be intervals of
fully a half hour when it was not raining,
end this gave tho sightseers time to move
around, and from under the wings of the
shelter-affording buildings. Most of the
raths -were deserted because of the mud.
The railroad track, which is laid through
the grounds, was much traveled, at it was
high and "was not covered with mud,
which was the case of some of the tem
porary sidewalks. On each side of the
track nearly all along the line the ground
had been cut up and loosened by wagons
and horses, and rain resulted in the ac
cumulation of thick and heavy mud.
There were about 100 people at one time
walking the track when a switch engine
pulling a couple of freight cars filled with
exhibits came along. The people did not
have much time, and the majority of
them had to step from the ties Into the
mud. In some places the yellow ntud was
so deep that the parties who were incon
venienced sank in It clear up above their
ankles. The worst part of it was that
the engine, after it got started, kept run
ning along the track nearly all afternoon.
This stopped all tie-walking.
"I have been hearing -so mu,ch about this
Exposition for the last year that I
couldn't wait until It opens, so I came
right to Portland to spend two or three
days, if needed, in looking over the
grounds," said a schoolteacher from East
err. Oregoit who was one of a party of
people grouped under an extended angle
jot the roof of the Forestry building dur
ing a light shower. "About all we read
about now is the Lewis and Clark Expo
sition. I am not disappointed, either. I
do not believe the reports as to the extent
s4 scope of the Fair have been exag
gerated. Of course. It is Impossible to
get a definite Idea of what the Fair will
be, because there are several more build
ings to go up, but I believe It will sur
pass my expectations."
Descendant of Expedition.
One of the direct descendants of the
Lewis and Clark expedition will visit the
Exposition at Portland and see the great
Fair which commemorates tho event in
which his father had a part. He is Judge
W. It. Shannon, of Fowler. Cal.. a son
of George Shannon, the boy frequently
mentioned in the "Journals of Lewis and
Clark," on their famous expedition.
President H. W. Goode, of the Exposition,
has written the California promotion com
mittee, suggesting that Judge Shannon
join the committee's excursion to Port
land. His request will be gladly complied
with. Mrs. Eva Emery Dye. author of
"The Conquest," who has taken a great
deal of interest in looking up members of
the expedition for literary material, has
informed President Goode that Judge
Shannon Is one of the direct living de
scendants of the party who has been dis
covered. He is a man of some 80 years of

MARSHAL ORGAN'S FINE WORK
the situation now stands the Good Gov
ernment Club is certain to elect a consid
erable portion of Its. ticket.
He Handles the Politics of St. Johns
With a Skilled Hand.
Great Is Charles R. Organ, the Marshal
of the City or St. Johns. As a politician
he will rank with the roost adroit and
skillful In the manipulation of St. Johns
politics. Not only did he organize the
Good Government Club and dictate who
went on the ticket that club has put
out. but he has managed affairs with
such a fine hand that nearly every candi
date has been placed on either the Citi
zens' or the Independent ticket, so that
the Good Government Club will "catch
'em goin and comin.' " J. W. Hanks,
candidate for Recorder; Fred TV. Valen
tine, candidate for Treasurer; C. D. Ed
wards and H. W. Brlce and C. S. Thomp
son, candidates for Councllmen, on the"
above ticket, were nominated on the In
dependent ticket Saturday night.
Mr. Hanks was nominated over M. F.
Tufts by .a vote of 53 to 39. This was very
fine work on the part of Marshal Organ
to accomplish In the camp of the' enemy.
Marshal Organ also Is after Thomas J.
Monahan, Citizens candidate for Mayor.
He brought about the nomination, of W.
V. Jobes on the Government ticket, and
not a few believe the Marshal's hand was
potent in securing the nomination of W.
H. King, although Mr. King has 'a very
strong personality and Is favored by mem
bers of the Good Government Club.
The meeting Saturday night was called
to nominate A. S. Douglas for Mayor, but
Mr. King won out easily, so that the fight
will be a three-cornered one, with even
chances for each of the candidates for
Mayor. It will be an Interesting fight,
with the election two weeks off. The way

2fxUt ui Watklaxtst,
If we were to assemble all
those who have been cured of
heart disease by Dr. Miles'
Heart Cure, and who would
to-day be in their graves had
not Dr. Miles' been successful
in perfecting this wonderful
heart specific, they would pop
ulate a large city.
What a remarkable record 1
a breathing, thinking, moving
monument, composed of human
lives, that for which every
other earthly possession is sac
rificed. The Miles Medical Co. re
ceive thousands of letters from
these people like the following:
"I feel indebted to the Dr. Miles'
Heart Cure for my life. I desire to call
the attention of others suffering as I
did to this remarkable remedy for the
heart. For a Ions' time I had suffered
from shortness of breath after any
little exertion, palpitation of the heart;
and at times terrible pain in the region
of the heart, so serious that I feared
that I would some time drop dead upon
the street. One day I read one of your
circulars, and Immediately went to
my druggist and purchased two bot
tles of the Heart Cure, and took it
according to directions, with the
result that I am entirely cured. Since
then I never miss an opportunity to
recommend this remedy to my friends
who have heart trouble; in fact I am
a travel! m: advertisment. for I am
widely known in this locality."
J. H. BOWSCAN,
Manager of Lebanon Democrat,
Dr. Miles' Heart Cure Is sold by
your druggist, who will guarantee that
the first bottle will benefit. If It falls
he will refund your money.
