Nature, which has contributed so
much to the beauties of the Lewis and
Clark Exposition, occupied an envious
position in the hearts of the many vis
itors to the Fair yesterday. Nature
has always taken a pardonable pride
in the Exposition, as it is nestled in
one of her greatest masterpieces of
scenic landscapes, but yesterday she
was doubly proud as one of her most
beautiful creations, the Oregon Grape,
received especial recognition.
The exerc'ses of the day were held
in the Oregon building at 2 o'clock in.
the afternoon. Airs, saran a. jvaus.
president of the State Federation of
Woman's Clubs, presided. She opened
the exercises with a few introductory
remarks, relative to the beauty of the
Oregon grape, greatly pleasing the
large audience, which completely filled
Myers' Tribute to Floral Emblem.
President Jefferson Myers, of the Or
egon State Commission, delivered one
of hi6 characteristic addresses of wel
come, which are Invariably to the point
of bubbling over with his wholesome
expressions of hospitality and cordial
ity. President Myers, in the course of
his remarks, paid many high oompll
ments to the ladles of the State Fed
eration of "Woman's Clubs, under whose
auspices the exercises were conducted.
"It is observed that a young man.
In his anxiety to obtain the heart and
hand of a beautiful young lady, will
bestow upon her the most exquisite
bouquets of flowers that can be se
cured. It is also noticeable that in the
departing hours of our friends, that the
last respect which we pay them is the
placing of beautiful wreaths of flowers
upon their last resting place. It is,
therefore, very appropriate and proper
that the selection of this state flower
should have been made by the mothers
of this country, for it is their side of
life that has always provided the sun
shine, the sympathy and the kindness
of the human familj"
History of Its Adoption.
George H. HImes, of the Oregon His
torical Society, who was among the
first to fa'or the grape flower as a
state emblem, gave the history of its
adoption, from the time he first suggested
it 20 years ago to the endorsement by the
State Horticultural Society in 1S92 and its
formal . adoption by the Legislature in
Oration for Mrs. Duniway.
Mrs. Abigail Scott Duniway was present
at the exercises, and upon the earnest
solicitation of her many friends, was per
suaded to say a few words to the au
dience. She "as given a hearty ovation.
Mrs. Duniway delivered a short but ex
tremely interesting address. Mrs. Duni
way is one of the brightest talkers in
the United States, and yesterday she was'
in her happiest mood.
In speaking of the State Federation of
Woman's Clubs, Mrs. Duniway said that
the men of Oregon, as a whole, did not
object to their wives belonging to clubs.
"The men are not afraid the women will
neglect their domestic affairs by attend
ing the club meetings," said she. "The
prettiest children, happiest households,
most contented men, and the most intel
ligent and healthful women, you find
when you go into the clubs," continued
the speaker. "Next year the men of
Oregon will mark an epoch in the history
of our sex, when they will Join hands
with their brethren of Wyoming, Utah,
Idaho and Colorado, in granting us the
right to vote," she concluded in speaking
of women's suffrage.
XatlonaKand State Flowers.
Another interesting speaker at the pro
gramme was Madame Anna von Rydlnga
vard, formerly of Boston, who took as
her subject, "National and State Flow
ers." She spoke of the sympathy that
exists between human beings and plant
life, tracing It through the various super
stitions of different nations regarding
the characteristics of trees and plants.
She spoke in some detail of the state
flowers of America. The other numbers
on the programme consisted of vocal
solos by Miss Mary Alverta Morse. Miss
Mabel Pearl Baker, and Mrs. w. B.
Hamilton, all of which were excellent
and well received by those present.
Following the exercises, punch was
cervftd on the portico of the Oregon build
ing. The decoration committee consisted
of Mrs. G.-M. Glin. "Mrs. E. C. Godded,
Mrs. J. C Pritchard and Mrs. H M
Ogden On the committee of the day

The Fourth Cavalry Band will play
its farewell concert at the Exposition

occasion the programme will be made
up entirely of requosted numbers, and
will also Include a vocal solo by Miss
Elizabeth Harwas. The band will re
turn to Fort Walla Walla on ThunsJay
and two weeks later will depart with
Its troop for tho Philippines.
During its stay at the Exposition the
Fourth Cavalry Band has won much
commendation and its departure will be
regretted. Its concerts have always
been popular and attended by appre
ciative audiences, since the programmes
offered have been composed of what
might be termed everyday favorites.

St. Johns Council spent half the night
Monday at the Council chamber hearing
the reading of the occupation and gen

very long. It was 12 o'clock when the
Council adjourned. The occupation tax

Portland ordinance does, only the tax
Imposed on the various occupations Is

Detective Day Is Slow.
Detective Day and his brothers of the

by Day afterwards, and charged with

on the staff took the stand and swore
they knew nothing against the charac

personally all of the noted bunco men
In the world. Two celebrated "gents"

to learn these men are now In Portland,

BACK TO PULPIT
"What Food Did for a Clergyman.
A minister of Ellxabethtown tells how
Grape-Nut brought him back to
his pulpit: "Some 5 years ago I had an
attack of what seemed to be Lagrlppe
which left me In a complete state of col
lapse and I suffered for some time with
nervous prostration. My appetltle failed.
I lost flesh till I was a mere skeleton,
life was a burden to me. I lost Interest In
everything and in almost everybody save
my precious wife.
Then on the recommendation of some
friends I began to use Grape-Nuts food.
At that lime I was a miserable skeleton,
without appetite and hardly able to walk
across the room; had ugly dreams at
night, no disposition to entertain or be
entertained and began to shun society.
"I Anally gave up the regularly minis
try. Indeed I could not collect my
thoughts on any subject, and became
almost a hermit. After I had been using
the Grape-Nuts food for a short while I
discovered that I was taking on new life
and my appetite began to improve; I be
gan to sleep better and my weight In
creased ateadlly; I had lost some 50
pounds, but under the new food regime
I have regained almost my former weight
and have greatly Improved in every way.
"I feel that I owe much to Grape-Nuta
and can truly recommend the food to all
who require a powerful rebuilding agent,
delicious to taste and always welcome."
