been a study of a lifetime. Her art was recognized at a
very early stage by the foremost exponents of corset
making in Paris, where she served her apprenticeship.

fit, quality and workmanship combine to produce a
corset of exquisite shape, an article of surpassing
beauty and comfort. The first fitting is usually
satisfactory, and alterations are very rarely required.

In Hillsboro Recount.
HILLSBORO, Or., Dec. 11. (Spe
cial.) The City Council met last night
and recounted the ballots cast at the
city election last Monday, in response
to a petition by Joseph Downs, who
was defeated by D. L. Houston for the
Council by a majority of six votes.
Downs' counsel argued that the citi
zens' ticket was an illegal ballot and
asked that it be thrown out of the
Upon vote of the Council, BoscOw,
Hartrampf and Trullinger voted to
count all the ballots, while Helm and
Carlile voted to sustain the objection,
on the grounds that the ticket was
alien, inasmuch as It had not been arisen
to the election board by the City Re
corder, as required by ordinance.
The recount gave Downs a gain of
but one vote and Houston was sworn
in and seated. The contest will doubt

Hood River and Central Part of
State Featured Valuable In
formation Is Given.
How the railroads are aiding in the
advertisement and development of Ore
gon is given ample illustration in the
publication of two booklets which are
now being distributed. The first of
these, "Oregon." was issued by the pas
senger department of the Great Northern
Railway Company, and the other, "Hood
River, Oregon," by the passenger de
partment of the O. K. & N. Co.
The "Oregon" booklet Is the larger of
the two, and in its 32 pages of illustra
tion and descriptive matter covers well
the entire state. The other confines its
attention to the Hood River district, but
is prepared in a more pretentious style.
A feature of the Great Northern's pub
lication are four maps which point out
the way to Oregon and the wonderful
advantages for securing homes in the
state. The map in the front of the book
shows the route of the Great Northern
from St. Paul to Portland. While all the
other states are printed in black and
white, Oregon is tinted to attract spe
cial attention. A colored county map
of the state is also published, showing
the route of the Great Northern, the
North Bank, the Oregon Trunk,
the Oregon Electric, the United
Railways and all the proposed lines
of the Hill system. Including those
to Tillamook and through Central and
Southern Oregon. The dotted lines ex
tend as far as Medford to the south. The
third map is inserted, being in black and
white and also showing the Hill lines.
It is unattached from the book and can
be used for reference.
A smaller but probably the most valu
able map in connection with the adver
tising scheme is one showing the terri
tory in Central Oregon where 320-acre
homesteads may be had. with stars In
dicating the towns where homestead fil-
i Ann ka -Vnat area& in Mai
heur, Harney, Lake, Crook and Klamath
Counties are blocked out. -
The Hood River booklets are being
sent by mail to a selected list of persona
throughout the East who are likely to
become interested in that section. It is
printed in natural colors, the two first
inside pages containing actual size illus
trations of Yellow Newtown and Spitz
enberg apples.
Most of the space is devoted to illus
trations, but adequate and convincing
descriptive matter is carried. All of the
pictures are reproductions of actual
scenes in the Hood River District and
show the remarkable state of advance
ment the apple culture there has at
tained. Golden Drirt Dam Inspected.
GRANTS PASS. Or., Dec. 11. (Spe-
cial.) Ed. Clanton, State Fish war
den, came from Salem yesterday to in
vestigate the Golden Drift Dam, three
miles east of the city, which is being
repaired by private citizens. The work
has not progressed sufficiently for the '
state to put in fish-ladders. As soon
as he can, Mr. Clanton will put on a
crew of men and suitable ladders will
be installed, to permit the fish to pass
up the river at any stage of water.
