.rn.rim.nt and that efforts will be
made to make the night schools of
rreat benefit to store workers.
Whether day or night schools would
be the most advantageous to both the
employers and employes was a ques

In expressing their willingness to do

The employers will meet with the

to effect a. satisfactory arrangement.
Superintendent Alderman said that
a minor may be sent to school for nine
months at a cost of about $200, and
that his Increased efficiency may be
figured at 600 a year therearter. tie
argued that there was no doubt of the
soundness of such an investment.
Employers Tell of Experiment.
That Olds, Wortman & King had
spent about $2,000 a year ago in ex
perimenting with a school for employes

TV. P. Olds, who said that the knowl

rather than by instruction.

employes are deficient In penmanship

Julius L Meier, of the Meier A

FRANK MILLS, WITH THE COMEDY READY MONEY," AT THIS
BJ LEONE CASS BIER.
awsHY, he isn't like an actor at

went with me to have a chat
with Frank Mills, leading player In
Heady Money" at the Hellig.
"You mean he isn't like the work
ing diagrams you've drawn of actors
in their hours of ease," I corrected.
Fuzzy Top expostulated. "No; that
isn't it," she said. "I've seen a lot of
actors, real and correct imitations.
lounging around In hotels where I've
been. I've seen them in their native
haunts, the picture galleries and the
grills, and Mr. Mills acts more like a
reg'Iar man than any actor I've seen."
Secure In her convictions, the fuzzy-
topped woman eyed me as if she dared
me to dispute her. I didn't; for "them
was my sentiments."
Frank MUIb Is such a big. healthy.
husky chap, fond of his work for the
work's sake, frankly adoring his wife,
and "dippy" over baseball and so much
like the few salt-of-the-earth men one
meets that he stands out from some of
his fellow craftsmen like a gob of
egg on a freshly laundered collar.
Shop-Talk on Blacklist,
We talked about almost everything
under the sun excepting the theater.
Once or twice I dragged him. under
protest, back to that subject to get a
line upon some of his uprisings and
downslttlngs in the last dozen years.
Me nas visited Portland before, you
see, so this is one actor of whom I
do not have to bromide: "This Is Mr.
Star's first visit to this Coast." etc. ad
finitum. The last time Portland saw
him was with Olga Nethersole in a
French play. He was perfectly splendid,
I remember, but wasn't Olga awful
when she shrieked and howled and
pounded the door of the room where
in Mr. Mills, as her lover, had oblig
ingly shot himself so the play could
have an ending?
Until that one engagement here, most
of the last eight years of Mr. Mills'
busy life have been passed In England.
In fact, he has been vlavina- with
Forbes-Robertson, Mrs. Patrick Camp
bell and Beerbohm Tree so regularly
that he bought a home near London
and lives in it when he's working
there. Mrs. Mills is there now, but
she's going to sail for this country next
week and join her husband immediate
ly In New York. He leaves the "Ready
Money" cast following the Txe Angeles
engagement. Then they two play the
leads in "Bought and Paid For." Mrs.
Mills is professionally known as Helen
Macbeth, and she's American.
In his years abroad Mr. Mills has lost
none of his patriotism and loyalty to
America and American institutions, but
he doesn't jump on the table and wave
the American flag every time it is men
tioned. He Just keeps away from a
discussion of nationalities, by which
maneuver he hurts no one and doesn't
Extremes Come From Uaderworld.
Wt were talking about the agitation
over what women shall and shall not
wear. A woman who had wandered
Into the dining-room had either not
distinctly heard the Mayor's edict or
else held it in joyous contempt. We
watched her wiggle into a chair and
endeavor to draw her scant drapery
about her. To twist a proverb, her
skirt uncovered a multitude of shin.
"If American women realized that all
these styles are originated by the co
cottes, the deml-mondaine of Paris,
there surely would be a change,"
thoughtfully remarked Mr. Mills. "All
of these ultra modes are Introduced by
the women of the. underworld, in Euro
pean centers of fashion. Then the
women of the aristocracy and the
wealthy Kew York women emulate
them. In no time all women, from the
banker's daughter In the provincial city
to the small town girl who cuts her
clothes merely by the picture and an
aching void where her sense of humor
should repose, are following the fash
ion like sheep." - ,
"No." he concluded, "not all women.
The really modest woman of good taste
doesn't put on the very splittest gown
she can find. Refinement is evidenced
in clothes quite as much as in manner.
Clothes may not make the man, but
the lack of them certainly can. unmake
"You think it needs looking into,
then?" murmured Fuzzytop.
"Well, it appears to be an open ques
tion," said Mr. Mills. -
"And, after all," sea I. "It's solely a
matter of form."
"My attitude on this subject is only
that of every other man." said Mr. Mills.
"I like these styles on the other fellow's
wife. But not on my wife."
Which started a row and would
make another story.

State Health Board Places Dr.
Harms in Charge and Each Case
Will Be Traced Five Wells
Found Infected, Two Pure.
OREGON CITY. Or, Aug. St. (Spe
cial.) Forty-four cases of typhoid
fever have been reported In the city
and county since the disease became
epidemic. The number seems to be
steadily increasing, according to fig
ures now' in the hands of the physi
cians. Only one death has been reported,
that of Victor Justin, a 11-year-old
To determine the oauBe and primary
source of the epidemic that has spread
so rapidly the State Health Board has
placed Dr. Harms In charge oi tne in
vestlgatlons and has had him In con
ference with the physicians for the
last 10 days, studying the cases tnat
have come to their attention. By an
Investigation Into the causes of each
case the board hopes to gain lniorma
tion that will enable it to successfully
combat the epidemic
Several of the cases now on the af-
ficial list were caused, according to the
doctors, by Impurities in the water
used for cleansing cans at the Star
Dairy. Along the route ot tne mu
wagons from that dairy a number of
cases have been reported, although an
Investigation into the milk showed
that It was pure and free from typhoid
bacilli. The water with which the
cans were cleansed, however, came
from a well and examination disclosed
bacilli In the water.
Well Water Examined.
While some of the cases may have
originated in this way, there are
others for which the physicians can
find no cause. It was believed at first
that the wells in and about the city
were contaminated and that a large
proportion of the cases could be traced
to them .
Two samples of well water sent to
the State Board of Health have been
declared free from typhoid bacilli. Five
wells have failed to pass the examina
tion and one of these is the Star
Tests made of the city water from
samples taken at various points on
the mains and hydrants have been de
clared pure by the State Board. The
bottles have been sent to Portland
twice every week since December la,
In everv case the water has been de
clared free from organisms that could
be held responsible for the epidemic
- In order to have the results cnecaea
the city has sent samples to the Ore
gon Agricultural College, the Univer
sity of Oregon, the State Board and
Dr. Hampton, of Portland-
laveatlgatioa Is Halted.
The source of the disease still re
mains a mystery. In the meantime
new cases are reported from day to
day. The investigation is at a stand
still until the representative of the
State Board returns to the city and
takes up again the work where he left
off several days ago.
Tests of the city water and many
wells have eliminated those partlou
lar points as the responsible agents
for the disease. Other wells have
not been tested and it Is considered
possible that the disease may be laid
to some of these.
- While some cases may be charged
to the Star Dairy, the physicians do
not believe that all of the cases can
be attributed to this source.
The City Council has called upon the
board for a report and it is possible
that this may be forthcoming within
the next lew aays.
