In the Oriental building on the Lew's ana
Clark Exposition grounds tomorrow af

make Its success complete. The entries
are more numerous and of higher class
than In either of the two former shows,
the big building is splc and span and
provided with every accommodation for
a large crowd, and Interest In the event
Is general. It is certain that the three

All of the outside entries have arrived

a 14-car special train which reached here
from Seattle yesterday morning. Every
one of the 20 stalls provided at the Expo
sition grounds Is occupied. In the past
the stables, which were then smaller,
were adequate to meet all demands, but
this year It has been necessary to quar
ter some of the animals down town. Most
of the horses quartered at the Exposition
grounds are from outside cities which In
dicates the fine showing that will be
made In the ring.
Electric Lights Installed.
T. O. Downing, who Is In charge of the
Oriental building arrangements, has the
structure In perfect condition for the
show. Workmen yesterday completed In
stalling the electric lights and no expense
has been spared to make the scheme of
Illumination all that could be desired.
Long strings of light bulbs are suspended
everywhere and there will not be a shad
owed spot In the entire structure. A
very agreeable feature this year will be
the provision for steam heating. The
heating plant has been Installed and heat
will be turned Into the building today so
that when the crowds gather tomorrow
they may view the horses In perfect com
fort. The clay and shavings on , tho floor
have been well packed and a better track
. for Its purpose could not be secured. An
extra long runway was laid out yester
day so that the horses In the high Jump
could be given every opportunity to set
a new Pacific Coast record. An agree
ment has been reached by owners of the
high Jumpers that the top bar of the
barriers shall be chained In place so that
there can be no question about the rec
ord. This will add an element of consid
erable danger. High Jumping Is always
perilous and chaining of the top bar
means that the horses will have to clear
the barrier, when they attempt it, or take
bad falls In which the riders will run
Attendance to Be Large.
The sale of seats has been more than
satisfactory and It Is certain that there
will be large attendance each night and
good crowds also In the afternoons.
Practically all of the boxes have been
reserved and the other seats are In good
demand. It Is not believed that the rain,
if it continues, will cut down the attend
ance to any appreciable degree. Awnings
have been stretched around the entrances
so that all may enter the building with
out getting wet or muddy. Automobiles
and carriages can go to the doors which
la another very convenient arrangement.
J. O. McDonnell, of New York, arrived
' last night to act as Judge of the show.
. Mr. McDonnell has had much experience
' in Judging horses and members of the
Hunt Club feel very fortunate In secur
ing his services. Mr. McDonnell will
. visit the Oriental building today and look
' over the horses that will be on hand for
the usual practice this afternoon.

Mustache Is Tinkered
Out of Business
Alex Cralb, Well-Knowa Teleg
rapher, Yield to Temptatloa to
Fix Things Does It Effectively.
IF Alex Cralb, one of the old-time teleg.
raphers of Portland, had not yielded to
the Innate desire to tinker with things
that has been his unfortunate penchant,
he would not now be mourning the loss
of the beautiful hirsute adornment care-
fully nursed and protected and fondled
with pride by Alex for many years.
Sad Is the loss of that mustache; sad
der still the way of its losing. Mr. Cralb
Is at the business end of the telegraph
wire In one of Portland's papers during
the day. Along with the screwdriver, the
monkey wrench, the oil can, the hammer,
the nails and various other. toote which
may come handy sometime and are con
stantly at his right hand, la a small mir
ror. When there is nothing else to fix,
Alex gazes in the mirror. Yesterday he
decided that mustache needed fixing.
Along with the other equipment la a pair
of sctesors. Snip! went one end of the
mustache. Too short. Snip! went the
other end. Also too hort. Snip, snip,
alternately went the ecissors. and soon
there was no mustache.
Ghastly with the horror of hie deed.
Cralb hied himself to a barber and had
the Job completed. Now he mourns. Will
he quit tinkering? Not he. He Is only
waiting for, another to grow, when he will
start In to train It after the inspiring
fashion adopted by the Kaiser.

In the Picture
Salt water, straight from the sea, yet 20 degrees warmer than
the surf! That is one of the advantages of the Plunge Bath.
Here is the reason : The tide recedes 2500 to 3000 feet
from the shore on the bay side of the peninsula. The sandy
beach is consequently warmed by exposure to the sun and air.
As the incoming tide, right from the sea, flows over the beach
the sands in turn warm the water. The average rise in tem
perature is 20 degrees.
At a sheltered point the Open Air Plunge Bath will afford
a swimming place absolutely without an equal. The inside
dimensions are 500 by 1000 feet. The depth varies from two
and one-half feet (safe for the smallest child to learn to swim)
to four feet. Through the center the depth is four to eight feet.
This tremendous excavation in the sandy beach is part of
the work for which the $40,000 dredge, now in operation 20
hours daily at BAYOCEAN, was built.
Around the outer edge a' concrete wall will provide spots
for restful sun-baths.
A large proportion of the water will be changed by every
Ideal swimming is thus provided at any hour of the day.
Four hundred dressing-rooms will accommodate the bathers.
One floor of the bathhouse, including a separate fresh water
plunge and several showers, will be exclusively for women. The
men's floor will also have a fresh water plunge and an ade
quate number of showers.
The casinos of the Southern California resorts and the great
Sutro Baths of San Francisco have been studied by the de
signers of the Bayocean Plunge Bath, so that it incorporates
their best features.
But no place can duplicate this Plunge Bath, for at this
peninsula only is there so peculiar a combination of physical
The Plunge Bath is as much a part of Guaranteed BAY-.

HARNEY LANDS SETTLED
Nearly 40 0 Entries Made at Burns
Since July 1.
BURNS, Or., Oct. 6. (Special.) The
past three months have brought a large
number! of new settlers to this part of
Oregon, as 'revealed by the quarterly re
ports of the local United States land
office Just completed. Since July 1, there
were 30,244 acres entered here under the
homestead laws; 20,209 acres under the
desert land laws; 8111 acres under state
school scrip, which costs JS.75 an acre;
1482 acres under timber and stone laws;
619 acree with railroad scrip, making a
total of 60,614, representing nearly 400
entries, and the large majority of these
are In Harney county, as the search for
such lands was stimulated by the opening
of the Carey lands near Burns on July 1.
A remarkable feature of the late move
ment Is the taking of so much land at
J8.75 an acre. During the last month
alone, over 4400 acres were taken In this
way, and nearly all In this county.

'H500 IN 1910" IS SLOGAN
Frank and Mose Are Selected to
Compete in Wrestling Matches at
Portola Carnival Smoker
"Fifteen Hundred in 1910," was the
battlecry adopted by the members of
the Multnomah Amateur Athletlo Club
at the first formal rally and smoker of
the season held in the gymnasium last
night. The battlecry does not mean
the club haa not that many members
now, for Including Intermediates and
Juniors, the famous Portland athletlo
Institution has an enrollment of nearly
2500, but the campaign launched last
night is to Increase the senior mem
bership to that figure.
Last night's smoker was one of the
most enthusiastic rallies ever held by
the club, and was marked by boxing
and wrestling contests, speeches by
prominent members and the serving of
a luncheon prepared by Tom Richards.
The club members who spoke In
the Interest of the campaign for a larg
er membership were J. F. Ewlng, presi
dent; John F. Logan and H. C. Camp
bell. On motion of Mr. Logan, the
club unanimously voted to have a set
of i resolutions of sympathy drawn up
and sent to Judge George H. Williams,
who was compelled to miss last night's
entertainment through illness.
- ' Club Will Pay Dues.
President Ewlng took occasion to an
nounce the plans for a contest whereby
the club expects to have 1500 senior mem
bers enrolled by December 31, 1909, and
the plan Includes the offering of prizes

months' dues. The announcement of this
plan was received with enthusiasm by
the 800 or more members present.
Mat and Ring Bonts.
Last night's boxing and wrestling
bouts were heartily appreciated by the
club members. The wrestling match be
tween Mose and Franske was to decide
which of the boys would represent Mult
nomah as the second wrestler of the
team to be sent to San Francisco for the
Portola contests. Mose beat Franske In
an exciting and Interesting match In
which both showed great Improvement
over last season's form. Edgar Frank
defeated Kllleen in another grappling
bout which was also Interesting. Frank
and Mose will be the wrestlers to go to
San Francisco, while Olmar Dranga, who
boxed three rounds with Professor Dan
ziger, will take care of the boxing hon
ors for the Winged "M." Richie Hewitt
and a lad named Van Kirk boxed three
most Interesting rounds, and the three
round out between C. C. Ralph and De
Voe was also entertaining.

he wants all of the entries In tonight's
events on hand by 8 o'clock sharp, for
