with her escort, and they Jumped into
a limousine as it stood pounding away
anxious to carry its human burden

of Portland who, not taking exception
to Mayor Albee's edict on the X-ray
gown, nevertheless has decided ideas
on the latest fashions, and is noted for
her lead in costumes though she won't
tell who Is her modiste.
The X-ray gown, however, is still
popular in Portland, but one must get

this latest creation, direct from Paris,

POLICE T0L00K FOR DOG
Philip Kallback Threatens Salt but
Is Mollified by Promise.
"I think more of that dog than I do
of the whole police force."
It was with this ingratiating ap
proach that Philip Kallbach, tailor.
appealed to the department to help
him find his hound Bismarck, lost yes
terday at Grand avenue and East Mor
"The poundmaster killed him," sug
"If he did I sue the city for eln
t'ousand thalers," shouted Kallbach.
The tailor and his wire-haired
brindle cur have been familiar figures
on the streets for years. Kallbach
said he had had the dog for nine years.
Once, some years ago, he went to jail
rather than pay the dog tax on him.
and scarcely does a year pass that
Kallbach and the poundmaster do not
have a round.
The excited dog-owner was molli
fied when promise was made to find
the dog and turned to a discussion of
his disesteem of Mayor Albee, Sheriff
Word, Oregon and the police force.
